Read the others. Added bonus is that I've liked Jamie from the first and this romance didn't disappoint. Sergei is a good match for her in a lot of ways and I was relieved to find that the title was as metaphorical as it should have been. A note about Steamy : two explicit sex scenes and it's on the upper mid range of my tolerance the first goes on for chapters.

I will say that virgin sex is problematic but that Lionsdrake handles it well—as far as I can tell and am allowed to have an opinion May 12, Mei rated it it was amazing Shelves: sf. He came out like such a sweet and guy! It is action packed, adventurous and hot like the other books! I loved it!

Well Damn! I give up on this series. It's just full of uncomfortable sexual moments. Lots of voyeurism, which can be titillating, but was more sleazy here and added nothing to the story.
Except make Sergie seem like an incompetent idiot Sergie was the worst part of the book though. He's an assassin whose inner thoughts sound like a highschool student with a hardon for the girl sitting in front of him.
But anyways, another day job for Mandrake Co that is made difficult by the bounty on Viktor Man. But anyways, another day job for Mandrake Co that is made difficult by the bounty on Viktor Mandrake's head. His old buddy Sergie shows up to help but nobody seems to trust him except Mandrake, Ankari and Jamie. It starts out promising and there's some good intrigue in the middle but other parts seemed more like an Austin Powers script.
Safety is good view spoiler [ Sergie isn't a manho and Jamie is a virgin. Sergie was raped when he was quite young by a woman who had authority over him. Jamie let some douche give her a massage when she was under the influence of drugs. It was a pretty icky scene. View 2 comments. Jul 11, Tami rated it liked it. Good and solid sequel. But I liked it a little less.
Probably because Jamie wasn't my kind of girl. But kudos to the author to try out new types of characters. Jamie was shy and introverted - she progressed a bit in the second half, but was still a more subdued heroine. Also not very mature and not experienced at all.
It made for a bit of "awkward". The hero was nicely done. Also: Be aware there is attempted rape and some flashbacks to rape in this book. But still a very enjoyable read. View 1 comment.

And the blood thirsty assassin falls for the shy pilot Of course there is a lot in between and boy was it fun watching it all play out.
Jamie is questioning her position on the research vessel for the Mandrake Company. She is constantly being harassed by the unattached men and she's had enough. Along comes Sergie, the striking but aloof assassin and old friend of the captain. He comes bringing a grave message, a price has been placed on Viktor's head.
Jamie ends up helping Sergie uncover the plo And the blood thirsty assassin falls for the shy pilot Jamie ends up helping Sergie uncover the plot that threatens the captain, but as they work in close quarters their attraction grows from appreciation to much more. Ketcham looks ahead as they close on a grove of trees. He knew they were going somewhere, but it's a chilling.

Therefore I was really looking forward to book 3 for to see how Tom Cain did develop the relationship after the epic struggles both fought to save each o The storyline of book 3 of the Carver series is a severe disappointment. Therefore I was really looking forward to book 3 for to see how Tom Cain did develop the relationship after the epic struggles both fought to save each other's lives.
But no. Cain just cut the string in one sentence. Even worse. Just very conveniently Cain picked up a small side story from book 2, a one-night stand with a women in Europe.
This is sloppy writing. Cain could have done better. Stone is a Brit operative as well, doing the dirty work for the Brit services and he has trouble as well keeping is business and private life apart.
McNab is doing so much better in developing his characters in his series, which are changing over time and he extremely good in providing the psychological background and the actions of the people close to him and the subsequent result. Jun 01, Ian Mapp rated it really liked it. Book three in the series. You know what you are going to get - superb high octane thriller that follows a time honoured format Initial slight confusion as Carver has someone mimicking his activities in a view to framing him for a future crime.
This mimic, Tysack, has history with Carver - which is slowly revealed in the course of the book. Can't remember whether this character was in any of the previous tales. Like the best of the Lee Child books - the derring d Book three in the series.
Like the best of the Lee Child books - the derring do is centred around a topical issue - in this instance, the modern slave trade - and you then structure a yarn that has guns, chases, a plot against the president, one framed man working alone - ultimately leading to the show down.
The pages just keep turning thick and fast and if you are after a no brainer to take on hols - you could do much worse. Dec 09, Andy rated it liked it Shelves: thriller , mystery , fiction , espionage. Carver's third outing and his powers of recovery are still immense! Lots of stereotypes - stuffy white collar Englishmen arrogant Americans baddie with a grudge and a hero trying to turn a new leaf but not being allowed to do so by his past Why Damon Tysack baddie doesn't just kill Carver when he has the multiple chance s to do so I am not sure.
I know he wants to get one up on Carver and prove he's not the failure that his previous boss Carver thought he was when they were SBS colleag Carver's third outing and his powers of recovery are still immense! I know he wants to get one up on Carver and prove he's not the failure that his previous boss Carver thought he was when they were SBS colleagues but surely he would have just shot him? If not the first time he captured him but the second? Having said that it is still a good page turner and an enjoyable read.
I preferred the first two though. Dec 29, Saki Piranha-fish rated it really liked it. This was a good read. It read just like a Hollywood blockbuster - except the hero was British so if Hollywood ever make a film of it it would have to have an American hero as the British are always villians in Hollywood movies. I suppose Bristol, England would have to be somewhere in America too. Nevertheless, you get my point that it was almost like reading about a film. Enjoyable without being too taxing!
Apr 27, Bruce Scott rated it really liked it. I can't help liking Samuel Carver, our hero, and his ephemeral band of friends and lovers. This book's cartoonish villain is a little hard to take, as are the tortuous circumstances he creates for Carver, but the action is thrilling and the book was hard to put down.
I will give number four a try now. Oct 22, Jane rated it really liked it. Sam is in for his biggest test so far. Plaisir, confiance et progression. Mais avant tout, pour le plaisir. Il se partage.
