Whisper No Lies features Johnny Duane Reed and Crystal Debrowski. Johnny is the playboy of the BOI team. He thrives on his reputation as an playful rake which he uses to prevent people from getting to close. Crystal Debrowski is is a red-headed spitfire, with pixie features, tough-as-nails attitude and an inch thick mental force-field as a shield against men who are constantly disappointing her. Johnny and Crystal are introduced in Take No Prisoners and have an established a "let's keep it casual" relationship.
Because Crystal and Johnny have already met and have an established attraction from the previous book, the relationship development is supercharged. They already like it each other, but are they ready and willing to move it forward? We have two vibrant, attractive, and charismatic characters with low expectations when it comes to trust in relationships. In this mix we have adrenaline pumping action from rescues, escapes and a demolition mission.
Cindy Gerard's books have strong female characters. Crystal is one of my favorites. She is spunky, courageous, daring, skilled, confrontational, and the perfect foil for Johnny. She holds her ground when Johnny tries to bully her and shows her grit in dire situations. Their romance is steamy, but also surprisingly tender.
In the science fiction genre, there is emphasis on "worldbuilding" - the ability of the writer to build the imaginary setting including history, geography, and backstory. Cindy Gerard is an excellent world-builder for this genre. She gives us the setting for the men who come from the Special Forces backgrounds - the history of their work, the challenges they face, the demons that they struggle with, and she highlights the special camaraderie that they share. Within this world, she focuses on the relationship-building. This is what makes her books so exciting and fun.
They both just want a fling but soon it becomes more and Johnny doesn't think he's good enough for her.
Within 48 hours she's kidnapped by Wong Li-who serves the Indosnian man that had been hassling Crystal and Tink is thrown in his private brothel after being branded one the wrist showing she is his property-she's terrified but stays strong and prays that Johnny will find her in time. Johnny gathers his team and heads to China, scouting for her whereabouts doing his own praying that she hasn't been hurt and is alive. Story is thrilling, explosive, compelling, hot and do very enjoyable. 7 stars!!
Johnny and Crystal drew me in in book 2, so I knew I was in for a treat with the third installment. As usual, Ms. Gerard didn't disappoint.
If you've never read Cindy's romance novels, you are in for a wonderful, thrilling ride with this series!
