Been Reading

September 3, 2009

Finished it. LOVED it. But before I gush a little about Shannon Stacey’s No Surrender, here’s the cover and blurb:

Don’t hold back. Never give up. If only it was that easy…

When sabotage downs their helicopter in the mountains, Gallagher finally gets the up-close and personal time he’s been craving with fellow agent Carmen Olivera. After their rescue, the saboteur’s trail sends the Devlin Group to Africa, where Carmen tries to revert back to her cold, professional self. Except Gallagher isn’t ready to let her go. Not by a long shot.

As the Group gears up to rescue a young woman held hostage in the well-guarded compound of a guerilla warlord, Carmen tries to shove her long-time attraction for Gallagher—now jacked up by one mind-blowing night—back into its mental corner. No matter what her heart says, there’s no future with him. They’re from different worlds. Not to mention the effect a failed relationship could have on the job.

But as the mission gets blown all to hell, they find the African jungle has its own, brutal way of deciding who has future at all…

My thoughts…

Like the other books in her Devlin Group series, this one kicked all kinds of ass. Gallagher was awesome.  Carmen has some serious cahones. Shannon really puts both characters through the physical wringer in this one and had me cringing more than once. If you’ve read it already, then you know exactly what I mean. 🙂

One of my favorite things about Shannon’s books are the the snappy oneliners and there were more than a few that had me laughing out loud. Last, but certainly not least, I love the way Shannon ends a book. The first book in her DG series, 72 Hours, has one of my favorite book endings ever.

The one thing that sucks about finishing No Surrender? That I’ve got to wait a while for the next book.
