For Mack McKinley and his team of GhostWalker killing machines, urban warfare is an art. But despite a hard-won knowledge of the San Francisco streets, Mack knows from experience that too many things can still go wrong. Danger was just another part of the game—and now he’s come face-to-face with a woman who can play just as tough.
She’s Jaimie, a woman with a sapphire stare so potent it can destroy a man. Years ago she and Mack had a history—volatile, erotic, and electric. Then she vanished. Now she’s walked back into Mack’s life, as a spy with more secrets than are good for her. Against all odds, she’s hooking up with Mack one more time to take on an enemy that could destroy them both, or bring them back together in one hot, no-holds-barred adrenaline rush.
I have read this series from day one and have to say the direction they are taking is a little disappointing. It’s the same underlying theme each & every time. Ghostwalker meets love of life, they have sex, they fight, he dominates, they do a mission and all is well.
This particular books gives us insight into a different team that has nothing to do with the original team members we have been reading about. Which is interesting as it introduced us to some new characters and set up addition stories. It is also confusing.
We see references to Jaimie emailing another female (which I think is Flame but not 100% sure). Mack has to be one the most aggressive ghost walkers to date. Very dominating & controlling. He tolerates no dissent in his decisions; which is why Jaimie leaves him in the first place.
I have to admit I was a little creeped out by Mack. He is very controlling and his “love” for Jaimie is obsessive; borderline stalker. He treats Jaimie as a not to bright child. And the rest of the team backs Mack’s attitude with the platitudes:
“He loves you…he cares for you…cut him some slack.” At one point Mack looks at her and thinks, “…that mouth that was every man’s fantasy…remembering how he had taught her to use it for his pleasure. He had taught her-everything.”
Frankly his constant whining about, “how could she leave ME” got old quick. Jaimie builds a life for herself as a security’s expert after she leaves Mack. She is also slowly unraveling Whitney’s deception & building a case against the project. She is toted as being a highly intelligent Ghostwalker herself but you don’t see much of it. The other characters have more personality and dynamics to them then Mack & Jaimie and I look forward to reading more about them.
Especially Javier-a skateboarding Ghostwalker. :P
The end went fast and was a little abrupt. Only took 20 pages for Jaimie and Mack to work everything out and complete a dangerous mission. I won’t give up on the series but I’d like to see more action and less angst.
