Whisper No Lies (Black Ops, Inc. Series #3) by Cindy Gerard

In New York Times bestselling author Cindy Gerard's fiery new romantic suspense series, when danger threatens, the seductive heroes of Black Ops, Inc. turn up the heat.


When a high roller at the Vegas casino where Crystal Debrowski manages security makes a scandalous proposition, she flat-out refuses, especially given rumors of his shady overseas connections. But then counterfeit bills mysteriously flood the gaming tables, and her reputation -- and her life -- are on the line.


Despite his big, flirty grin, Texas heartbreaker Johnny Duane Reed can't get sassy Crystal off his mind. When she is abducted by an international crime lord with a threatening obsession, Reed enlists his Black Ops, Inc. team to pursue a dangerous mission to rescue her.


Between Crystal and Johnny burns a scorching flame, but as they battle her relentless abductor, they uncover a malicious arms trafficking and white slavery ring. Together, they must destroy the tyrant's wicked enterprises or face his reign of terror themselves....

On the Vegas Strip, Crystal Debrowski works security at Bali Hai Casino. Her job is made harder because as her friend Abbie Hughes Lang puts it she is a ¿man magnet¿ due to her looks although she rejects all offers. Her latest admirer Yao Long refuses to accept her declination of a sexual encounter. The Asian crime lord pulls strings, which leads to Crystal¿s arrest based on her employer accusing her of stealing by substituting counterfeit chips and other security glitches; all occurring during her shifts as security game manager; Yao pays her bail.

Abbie knows Crystal is innocent and asks her spouse Sam and his cronies at Black Ops Inc (see TAKE NO PRISONERS) to help her friend. Before he can react, Yao¿s goons abduct Crystal taking her to his base in Jakarta. BOI agents led by before Texan Johnny Duane Reed mount a rescue. As they learn of Yao¿s human trafficking to include the apparent sale of an American general's daughter, Yao as belied by his Komodo dragon heart belief vows a fiery vengeance on those who affronted his honor.

This action-packed BOI romantic suspense thriller focuses on the entire amoral supply and demand of human trafficking as sexual slaves are a high selling commodity more than even the romance subplot. The story line is fast-paced from the onset while the key cast is fully developed. Especially interesting is Yao who believes strongly in his dragon heart that regular humans are inferior cattle to him. WHISPER NO LIES is a strong entry with a powerful deep focus on a currently thriving even with bad global economy abomination.

in this trilogy, whisper no lies, in my opinion is the best. things seemed to come together very well. the characters were highly likeable, the plot was solid, however sad due to the reality of it. i believe cindy gerards, writing gets better with each book. if you like, suspense with romance and even some dark humor thrown in, i believe you would enjoy this book.

The third in Cindy Gerard's trilogy was just as riveting as the first and second - maybe even better because it was about Johnny! What a man. Crystal was the perfect woman to complement Johnny in every way. Their relationship was full throttle at every turn of the page.

I've read all of Cindy Girard's romance/thrillers and this one was by far my favorite. As an entry in her Black OPs, Inc. series, it's a winner. It's got a terrific pair of lead characters, an bang-up plot with more twists than you'd expect. Every time you think you see what's coming she trhows in a really surprising turn. The romance is, as usual, both lustful and sweet, but in this book the action is more frequent. As a guy reading this, I especially enjoyed the in-your-face, against all odds story as the good guys (and girl) go toe to toe with a LOT of bad guys. If you want a book that will keep you turning pages, this is a great one to buy. I finished it in one read and wanted more.

I had no idea I could enjoy a book so much. I picked this book up while looking for something to take with me to the beach for the weekend and before I knew it I was hooked and COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! At this point, I decided I liked this woman's work and promptly set out on a mission to read everything she has written. I read them out of order, this trilogy and then the Bodyguard series, but all of the characters are tied and mentioned throughout each book, although it doesn't really give anything away, they each have their own exciting story. Great stuff!! I recommend this author to anyone who is looking for a little adventure to go with their romance.

Omg!!! Story was so so good!! Tink(Crystal) works security at a casino in Vegas-she gets propositioned by a Indonesian man with his bodyguards.  He is highly offended when she refuses, and warns her she will pay for offending his honor.  Crystal is in involved with Johnny-a hired gun/security who works with a group in Venesuela.   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!!

I read this book a few weeks ago so I don't remember a lot of specifics to write here, but I read the entire 7 book series and loved it! I would definitely read Book # 1 Show No Mercy before you read this one so that it all makes sense. One thing I do remember loving about this book was Johnny- one of my favorite characters in the entire series!

Whisper is your typical romance novel but a good read for a lazy afternoon. All the men are muscled, handsome, and rugged. All the woman are beautiful, slender, some tall some short, but all slender, graceful, and conflicted. Is there ever a romance novel with good-looking fat women and men? Look around you at the mall sometime. It happens. :o) Of course, none of the black ops men in the book fart or burp. I was a navy wife for 21 years married to a Navy diver. At our backyard parties, they didn't play Croquet, but they did drink a lot of beer and sometimes have contests to see who could burp Yankee Doodle. Eh, who wants reality anyway?
