Last Man Standing by Cindy Gerard, 368 pages, read by Robin, on 02/03/2012

This is the last of the books in the Black Ops Series by Cindy Gerard. This book continues a relationship started back in a previous novel (Feel The Heat) between Stephanie and “Mean” Joe Green, one of the Black Ops team members. The book begins with Joe breaking up with Stephanie and heading off to what he feels is a suicide mission to avenge the death of his buddy (and Stephanie’s brother), Bryan. Stephanie, being a romance heroine, doesn’t just pine for Joe – she figures out what he’s doing, heads to Africa and rescues him. The story is well-paced and exciting, the romance is sweet (with some sexy thrown in, of course) and the plot is both believable and thrilling at times. Stephanie manages to grow into the perfect partner for a guy named “Mean” Joe and Joe manages to lose a bit of the “hero” shine and lets her do some of the rescuing herself. This is a nice story with lots of heart and it was a fast and easy read.
