G-Men the Series by Andrea Smith
REVIEWED BY Joanne Swinney
G-Men the Series by Andrea Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
GEEZ!! First of all I thought 'G' stood for gorgeous well actually it could because G-Men seem to have a certain level of hotness, so powerful and oozing sex appeal you can't help but be attracted to the them.
The G-Man is this first book of the series is called Slate and by god this man is magnificent. He's the bad guy and good guy roll into one. On first meeting him in this story I was unsure of his motives. He seemed to be a nice guy but came across very crude at times. Nothing like acting out your day job to it's full potential.
Diamond girl A.K.A Sunny, Sammie, Samantha is a beautiful woman living a miserable life. From being very young she has cared for her only daughter who she loves with all her heart as parents should but her daughter, Lindsey came along after a night I am sure she has tried to forget and definitely made excuses for.
The night Lindsey was conceived, her mother Samantha had said no to the RB A.K.A Jack but he being the selfish, deluded man he is took no notice and took exactly what he wanted from Samantha.
Jack was more or less forced to marry Samantha by her father. She had a beautiful home and a beautiful daughter but the love that was lacking in her marriage made life depressing for her. Once Lindsey left for college, Samantha was at a loss. It was time to find herself and find herself she did.
This story is one that delves into domestic violence and even rape. It doesn't go into great detail and for that I am thankful but you get the idea of what is going on. The author has dealt with these issues with tact and sensitivity.
Jack is the worst kind of male. A bully to his own wife, a sleaze, a criminal, a wife beater, a rapist. I mean Jesus! he is such a lowlife. The only good to come out of that man was Lindsey.
Samantha starts exercising, building up her self confidence and boy does she excel. She takes on the role of a pole dancer, she has become one hot moma.
She doesn't need the money, this is just something for her. A secret that she loves and is very good at.
She meets Slate while working in a club. He comes across as being very protective of her and she kind of likes it, plus she can't help but drool over him, I mean he's just so strong and gorgeous. The eyes can't hide from this man.
Long story short these two have a whole world of trouble heading their way. Samantha is in for the shock of her life. Slate can't seem to function without her even though he's got someone else servicing him, I know, right? well you will understand all once reading this book.
It's a totally awesome read. I mean this author has never failed me yet. She literally draws me into her stories, I forget everything and everyone around me. Then when I finish all I can think about is starting the next book.
This is a must read, add it to your TBR, better yet download immediately. You will want to keep reading. If you haven't picked up a book by this author then you are missing out.
Love Plus One
This book was 'BBB'. What's that you ask? Brutal but brilliant. I swear to god I thought I was having a panic attack at one point.
My hand was rubbing my chest, my heart rate was through the roof.
I honestly don't know how this author writes such epic stories. I couldn't have been more invested in this book. I felt every possible emotion.
It's a story of great love and passion with grave danger thrown into the mix.
G-Man, Taz is the greatest hero, going against all the rules to save the woman he so desperately loves.
Taz is a man whore correction he was a man whore but being young and single he's entitled to do as he wishes. Taz works along side Slate who we met in book one. Actually Slate is Taz's supervisor but they are very good friends. Guaranteed to have each other's backs when going undercover.
Lindsey is the daughter of Samantha, such a sweet girl. She's an innocent but wise. Lindsey longs to know what it feels like to be loved in every sense of word.
All the family receive some devastating news and seek comfort in each other but who's Lindsey got? Unable to cope she seeks comfort in Taz, in my opinion he was exactly the guy to go to. Macho but caring, strong but loving.
Things become strange in Lindsey's life. Taz becomes very protective of her but us women never listen, perhaps sometimes we should.
The unthinkable happens and when I say unthinkable I mean this literally. I didn't want to imagine the scene I was reading but I didn't have any choice. The writing isn't graphic but by god it didn't need to be.
Tears of sadness rolled down my face, I felt sick to my stomach but yet I couldn't stop reading. If my husband had of been home, he would have told me to stop reading. Thank god he wasn't and thank god I didn't because although I struggled with the brutal act of violence, I'm very happy with how the story panned out.
I highly recommend you read this book. Why you ask? Well quite frankly you have not read an epic story till you've read this.
Andrea Smith will draw you in and you are guaranteed to connect with these characters.
I dare you to read it.
Dynamite book with a dynamic duo. This was such a fun read but had the elements of a tense story. I enjoyed reading this so much. This is what I would call a pick me up book.
EJ better known as Easton is a very intense guy, super controlling. He gives a whole new meaning to the word 'stalker'. I mean seriously it's funny because he knows no boundaries, maybe it's because he never draws a line so really in his mind he never crosses it, does that make sense?
Like any leading male character in a story, Easton is drool worthy, you could fry an egg on his butt, he's that hot. He could give your granny shivers, seriously no lie, I have the mental image to prove it. Unfortunately no one is that perfect though, he has demons and well he's had more women than I've had hot dinners and I love food. Man whore is putting it mildly.
Let's chat about Darcy because this woman is special, she is fun, loving and very beautiful, she has the best sense of humor, ever. The amount of times I have laughed out loud in this book. I was beyond giggling. The Author portrayed these characters so well and set the scenes to perfection, I had cheek ache from laughing.
Hmm!, now I want to tell you a little about the story without giving spoilers. Darcy decides it's time for a vacation after finding out some shocking news about her long term boyfriend, well a year is long term for Darcy.
So anyways flight booked and she's away. She meets a guy called EJ, although she feels drawn to him and can't deny the fact that he is off the charts sexy, she also feels danger, the heart break kind of danger.
Darcy ends up with a new focus in life, getting a job and working hard to get what she wants, no taking over daddy's company like promised but to help her through this she meets a great guy called Eli. They end up living together, HA! not what you think, shame really because Eli is perfect.
God I could tell you so much about this story it was fantastic. You will read about as much drama as you can cope with while taking the best, fun, loving journey with Darcy. The sex is thigh clenching epic, the friendships you read about are just like your own, gossiping, encouragement, support and let's not forget meddling when not wanted.
As much as I love Easton, I'm not sure anyone else could cope with him other than Darcy. He literally rules, like He-Man said "I have the power". Oh! how true.
This book is an absolute must read. I recommend you add it to your TBR on Goodreads so you don't forget. I am off to read yet another book by this Author because quite frankly, I just can't get enough.
G-Men Holiday Wrap
Let the games begin. Five couples going on a cruise what could possibly go wrong? Hehe!! Just about everything.
Let's have some introductions but hopefully by now you know them all.
First up we have sexy couple Slate & Sammie.
Second we have intense love Taz & Lindsey.
Third we have dynamic duo Easton & Darcy
Fourth we have quiet but erotic, Colin & Ronnie.
And finally our fifth couple two male hotties, Eli & Cain.
I know that's quite a bunch, right? These guys have made for very interesting reading. I'd like to say I've been on an adventure but that's not quite the right word. I've got it, I've been on an incredible journey with these characters, to name a few, I've read about domestic violence, rape, drug busts, kidnapping, money laundering, brutal rape.
Welcome to the world of G-Men.
Even though at times it's been a tough ride these guys have brought laughter to this series. They so deserve a break and each of them have chemistry going on that will steam your glasses up.
Each couple has some kind of drama going on, nothing like what they have endured through the past. It's actually hilarious.
We have one G-Man having sea sickness, one wife being stung by a jellyfish, can you see where this is going.
Whoever said love was easy, these macho men and independent women just love a good argument because the make up sex is awesome.
I've become to understand these characters and fell in love with them all as I'm sure this is what the author intended.
The bonus scenes were great, it's always exciting knowing you can read more.
The fake chapter, well thank god it's fake because that is one way of ruining a fabulous story. I actually kept saying to myself this chapter is not real, it didn't happen. She's just showing you what happened before the story came together.
OMG!! The whole book is fiction, I've completely lost the plot. Just goes to show you how good this series is.
First thing that springs to mind after reading this book is 'what a lucky lass'. Really like you're not thinking the same thing. Two hot guys to spoil you, look after your every need. Comes in handy when your feeling horny that's for sure, LOL!
In this book we are introduced to Paige. If you have read the other books in this series, you would have already met, Eli and Cain. Fanning oneself here, these men are drop dead gorgeous and very attentive, they tick every box.
Guess who they end up having for.... mind out the gutter people, hehe!! Okay, Paige becomes their room mate. It's the best offer she's had in a very long time. Living with her brother, Taz and his wife Lindsey, went down like a fart in a lift. Then she moved in with Easton and Darcy. Definitely a better arrangement but let's say still tricky.
Life is never without its challenges. Paige wants to be loved and be in love, Eli wants Cain to be happy because he loves him so much, Cain wants both Eli and Paige. All three feel connected in some way. It's as complicated as they wish to make it. Cain has a definite way of getting what he wants and is not letting either one of them go.
It's strange how love takes over all rational thought. Who's to say who we should love or how many. Each to their own, I say. If three people are in love and have no problem in living together, then everyone else just needs to suck it up and get with the program.
This was a fun, flirty read with romance and some mouth watering, erotic scenes. I have honestly enjoy reading this series and want more.
The author has ended this book on a surprise. No cliff hanger just the story could quite possibly continue, YIPPEE!!
