Kiss and Tell (T-FLAC Psi Unit: Night Trilogy Book 2) (English Edition) Kindle版
Sensuality Rating: 9
Newcomer Cherry Adair takes no prisoners with her sexy romp of a novel, Kiss and Tell. Deftly combining suspense, romance, and humor to can't-put-this-book-down effect, Adair introduces readers to Marnie Wright, a computer analyst in the midst of a career crisis, and Jake Dolan, a top secret military agent running for his life. Jake's heavy-handed attempts to intimidate Marnie into leaving the mountaintop retreat where she's contemplating her next career move don't faze Marnie, whose four overprotective older brothers have left her testosterone-averse--unless of course the commands are issuing from the most sensual pair of lips she's ever clapped her blue eyes on. It's lust at first sight for the mountain man who has no time for blondes, no matter how nubile, and for feisty Marnie, who aggravates Jake even as she saves his bacon when the bad guys come after him. Her saucy and sexy style irresistible, Adair is a bright new star in the romance genre!--Alison Trinkle

I always love to read a book that is so well written, I find myself living the scenes as they unfold. Cherry Adair had me running through a snow- packed mountain forest, ducking from bullets as they whizzed by my head. I was right there with the hero and heroine. Excellent writing!
Jake Dolen trusts nobody. Growing up in a home with alcoholic parents, he raised himself and ran off to join the navy at 16. After serving, he found a place for his gifted mind in the T-FLAC firm. Stone cold and always alert to his surroundings, Jake was one of T-FLAC's best terrorist hunters. Highly intelligent, Jake began inventing equipment to make himself and his colleagues safer and more efficient in the field. His inventions have made him a millionaire, but he has no desire to retire from his dangerous work as an agent. T-FLAC also provided him with the first friends he ever had. Two years ago, his three best friends were killed in the line of duty. His closest friend died in his arms while saving Jake's life. Now, someone in the firm is trying to frame Jake as a traitor. When T-FLAC issues Jake a permanent "leave of absence", he takes off to his mountain hideaway to research his own case. His goal is to find out who is framing him, and to stay alive while doing so. Jake's enemies want him dead before he can uncover their identities.
Marnie Wright has lived a privileged life. Growing up in a wealthy home where she was lovingly doted on by her grandma, father, and four older brothers, Marnie has never known loneliness or hunger. After her grandma died, she decided to take a trip to the mountain cottage that her grandma left to the family. Marnie wants to make a change in her life. Her father and brothers have become annoying in their over-protectiveness. It's time to make some decisions for herself and her future. While resting in Grandma's cottage, a huge forest tree crashes through the roof. Luckily, Marnie's dog has made a friend at a nearby cabin. "Duchess" loved Jake at first site. Now when Marnie is in danger, Duchess runs to bring Jake to help her.
The last thing Jake needs is a chatty girl in his home. To protect both himself and her, he keeps his career identity a secret. A raging mountain storm has flooded out the bridges that allow people to leave the mountain. Jake has no choice but to take care of Marnie until it is safe for her to cross. The girl makes him crazy... always cheerful and annoyingly persistent in her efforts to become friends with him. Worst of all, Jake can't resist her. He's cold and he needs no one... not this pretty blond female, nor her fiercely loyal dog. Jake is big and mean... so why aren't they afraid of him like everyone else?
Jake's enemies have found him. At least a dozen men have been dropped on the mountain to hunt and kill him. To Jake's dismay, these men appear to be his own T-FLAC brothers. After 16 years of offering his life at their backs, they have come to take him out. Jake is sure that the one who has been framing him is among these assassins. One by one, Jake will slay his enemies until he gets answers. Most importantly, he must keep Marnie safe. He'll do whatever it takes to guard her from harm. He's the hero... so why does she keep risking her own life to save his? With no family and no friends, Jake can't imagine why Marnie wants to be close to him.
Marnie is determined to break the icy shield around Jake's heart. As hard as he tries to seem mean and surly, his unselfish actions betray him. Jake is a man who will share what little he has with a stranger in need. He'll hold and lovingly sooth a sobbing woman as she breaks down in despair over her grandma's death. He'll even risk himself to save her dog. Duchess loves Jake. Before long, Marnie finds herself sharing the feeling. For the first time in her life, Marnie has made up her mind to pursue her own hopes for her future.

I did not like that when they were on the run from the assassins and trying to keep silent, Marnie kept doing a loud whisper calling for her dog.
I did not like that they were safely hidden underground from the assassins, but Marnie kept worrying about her dog. At least twice, Marnie/Jake went above ground and opened the door to let the dog take care of its bathroom needs. Their lives were in danger. They should have used newspapers, plastic bags, etc. and kept the dog inside. The assassins knew about the underground place and were looking for the entrance.
After Jake killed all the bad guys, he and Marnie punched the leader, Dancer, and left him supposedly knocked out on the ground. Jake didn't even tie him up. Then Dancer grabbed a gun and shot Marnie. That did not make sense to me.
I hated the part where Michael (Marnie's brother) talked Jake into leaving Marnie by saying that Jake couldn't take care of her because he was a warrior. Jake's soldiering had put her in danger. Jake was in love with her, but he left her because of that idea.
Sexual language: mild. Number of sex scenes: five. Setting: current day Sierra mountains, U.S. Copyright: 2000. Genre: romantic suspense.
To date, I've read one other book by Cherry Adair. My 3 star review for her book "On Thin Ice" Copyright 2004 was posted on 7/20/08.
It has suspense, danger, death, love, sex, and family.
It could use some editing and a little work on the inconsistencies. They don't take away from the story but are definitely noticeable.
And as someone working in healthcare.... I simply must say that there is no way anyone receives "2 and a half" units of blood unless the person dies or has a reaction to the blood transfusion. Nobody would waste half a unit of blood for no reason. Ok I said it. :-)
Jake is the type of hero I love most: tall, dark and handsome, gruff, abrasive, even a little rude. It's always this gruff hero-type who turns into a total Teddy bear for the heroine. That is exactly Jake's transformation.
He tries to resist Marnie, who is his total opposite; she's quick to show emotion, whether laughter or desire, easy-going, and exuberant. Jake tries to maintain his hard, heartless demeanor, but Marnie steadily chips away at it.
This tug and pull was sexy and so easy to read. Loved it! Also loved the sweet HEA at the end.
I definitely plan to check out the rest of the series. Great read.
