Killing Time (One-Eyed Jacks) [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "Killing Time" the 1st book in her new One-Eyed Jacks series by Cindy Gerard.

Product Description

“We can do this easy,” she whispered close to his ear as he groaned in agony, “or it can go real hard on you.”

Well, of course he wasn’t going to go easy.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cindy Gerard plunges readers into the heart of a seductive contest of wills between a hard-living hero and a beautiful rogue operative who is on a mission to dig up the secrets of his past. Tension sizzles in this pulse-pounding first adventure in Gerard’s action-packed new series as Eva Salinas lures Mike Brown from the sultry streets of Lima, Peru, to the desolate Idaho wilderness on the hunt for the cold-blooded traitor behind a fatal military operation that haunts them both.

My Review:

Eight years ago Mike Brown was discharged from the military when an operation named "Slam Dunk" failed and most of his teammates were killed. Mike has been drowning his sorrows by getting drunk to forgot his guilt and shame. One night he gets the drop by a sexy woman who drugs and handcuffs him to a bed.

Eva Salinas lost her husband Ramon on this mission eight years ago.  Mike Brown was the fall guy and was discharged.  A file mysteriously appeared on her desk containing mission discrepancies.  She is determined to find out what happened that day and heads down south to confront Mike to get some answers.

They decide to team up and during their investigation they find out that someone is determined to make sure what happened in Afghanistan stays hidden.  They go to great lengths to make sure that happens (ex: sending an assassin after Eva and Mike).  Now Eva and Mike are on the run and he needs some help from some old friends.

It was great to see some old friends from Black Ops Inc. (Gabe Jones and Joe Green) helping in the investigation and appearing in the story.

The action was very nail biting, tense and high octave action with a hot and sizzling romance.
