Marcus and Rebecca have instant chemistry, burning hot and dangerous, they're chance meeting at the airport and in a tech convention leaves them both hot and contemplating a fling. But the things is Marcus and Rebecca don't exist...
Tantum and Nala do and they have sworn to bring each other down, only neither knows what the other looks like. As NESA agents they know nothing more of each other than their ID numbers.
When Nala learns Marcus/Tantum is the man who killed her partner three years ago nothing will stop her vengeance. And when Tantum learns Rebecca/Nala is the target he's been hunting for for the bombing three years ago he swears to leave the lust and protectiveness he feels for her behind him and catch the killer. But nothing is ever fair in love and espionage...
First things first, when I started reading The Risque Target I simply couldn't put the nook down until I was all done with it. And that my friends is a tell tale sign that I am reading an awesome book! The Risque Target is full of the most delicious sexual temptation that never gives up, it's literally there all the time and it's so so yummy! But sexual temptation would be nothing if the writing wasn't excellent, and in Gendron's case it is! Gendron's a joy to read, the text is easy flowing, modern and laced with tons of excitement to keep the reader hooked!
I loved the plot, it was so good, three dimensional, there were sub-plots, bad guys, guns and an agent with superpower weapon of seduction. Without revealing too much I loved how someone was puppeteering both of them to attack each other and turn a blind eye to them. I really enjoyed hearing from both Nala and Tantum, it gave the book the urgency of erotic romance without having sex in every corner - though with these two I would have not mind seeing that - such hot chemistry!
The romance was so hot! And it build to the actual act, it was a slow burning seduction one that every woman wants to experience, so, lucky Nala! What I especially loved about the romance was the instant attraction they had, the playful flirting when they didn't know they were after each other. But even after learning their real identities they still couldn't do the hands-off, and that ladies is what great romance is all about!
The only critique I have is Tantum's name, it almost put me off reading the book - see I have this pet peeve about weird/altered character names I just can't stand them, like Jamie/Jaemie, Christina/Crisetina or Elizabeth/Eleasabet... I could go on. In this case though Tantum was such a great character that my mind was okay calling him Tatum in my head. ;) Serious note to all writers: there is nothing wrong with normal names.
The Risque Target is about two secret operatives, Nala Dekker and Tantum Maddox/Marcus Richards, sent to kill each other. But, of course, what happens instead is that they can't keep their hands off each other. Not only are they to kill their targets, each other, but there are others out to kill them too. I loved to see how they try to outwit each other.
Tantum is the ultimate bad boy with a checkered past. Dark, sexy, mysterious, but also always has to be in control. Nala is beautiful and smart and is an OCD control freak. Can you see the problem here?
I felt the story was slow in parts, mainly the action parts, but then the sex happens and it's amazing. The passion and the longing for each other definitely got my senses going. There were times that I wanted to shake the crap out of both of them, but it all works out. There were some twists that I didn't see coming.
In the end, it was an okay read. I couldn't get enough of Tantum though, that's for sure. I would love to see Tantum in another book. The ending really made the read worthwhile.
There was a little too much of Nala questioning her own feelings ("Is he guilty?" "Can I really trust him?", "He did do it!", "No I know he could never do it!", etc) and it got a little irritating but all in all it was a really good book. The premise is interesting too. They find they are pitted against each other and are each trying to find the other guilty of crimes but they seem to figure out pretty early what is going on but not the who is setting it up.
I really enjoyed this book and couldn't wait to see how it ended. I wanted to see how Tantum would overcome his own issues of the heart and it was fun to watch Nala fall so easily into his arms but try to keep her heart at arms length. I enjoyed the humor that was written into these characters (especially Tantum) as well. It really is a fun yet suspenseful read. I will eagerly pick up the next book by Gendron and hope it is just as well written as this one.

This was a great first out for Ms Gendron. I really enjoyed the well written characters. Sexual tension rolls off the pages and the love scenes are fan yourself HAWT!! The story keeps you engaged and guessing until the end. While keeping you wondering if Tantum and Nala will get their HEA. I really enjoyed the suspenseful ride and am looking forward to the continuation of the series.
