Sharpshooter (Shadow Agents #3) by Cynthia Eden
Sharpshooter keeps you guessing in some ways and others I figured out where the story was heading but enjoyed the ride getting there.
It was a lot of action, drama. a few sex scenes. The plot was a little twisty. Gunner was Sydney team mate but Sydney wanted more. Two years ago she was engaged to his brother but he died down in Peru. Both Gunner and Sydney were shot a couple of times trying to rescue him. They saw him shot all up and bleeding out. Gunner could not find a pulse and he needed to get Sydney away to safety. Then after they became lovers they were sent in to rescue him. He had survived as a prisoner for two years.
Gunner and Sydney were elite Shadow Agents part of a four man team. They were often sent to rescue others. Gunner has loved Sydney as soon as he met her. She was already dating his younger half brother. After two years he gave into her wanting him said she was ready to live again if it wasn't going to be him she would find someone else. The next morning after they slept together they were sent back to Peru and the hostage was Slade.
Slade was so angry and bitter against Gunner he went right up to him and started hitting him and yelling that he had sold him out because he wanted Sydney. Slade had been given a new drug that caused violence and paranoia. He threatened to give secrets out to the media about the top secret group if Gunner was not investigated about leaving him down their.
Gunner broke it off with Sydney, because Slade was her fiancé. He thought she loved Slade over him. Sydney was feeling hurt by Gunner. Then someone was trying to kill Sydney. The finger was pointing to Gunner. Slade was one of the fingers pointing to Gunner killing her because he had done it before.
This is the second shadow agent book that I have read and I have liked both of them. I really want to read the second one that I have missed. I also want to read the next one it looks good to me. It was a fast and easy read. I do admit to skipping over the couple of love scenes.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it by Netgalley.
