Review: Sharpshooter (Shadow Agents #3) by Cynthia Eden

Heart-pounding action meets smoldering desire in USA TODAY bestselling author Cynthia Eden's Shadow Agents miniseries!  Two years ago Gunner Ortez saved Sydney Sloan's life on a mission gone wrong. And ever since then, he's been watching her back. Now a hostage-rescue mission is about to blow the Elite Ops agents' lives apart once again.

Working side by side back in the jungles of Peru, the heat between Sydney and Gunner is hotter than ever-and so are the threats to their lives. With the danger escalating, Sydney knows Gunner is her only hope at successfully completing their assignment. But the ex-SEAL who arouses passion she'd only dreamed about also poses the greatest risk to the secret she carries in her heart...and in her belly.

Sharpshooter is the third book in Cynthia Eden’s Shadow Agent series. After reading Alpha One I have to admit I was really looking forward to Gunner and Sydney’s chase to a happily ever after. They were throwing some major sexual tension around in the first book of the series. I didn’t read Guardian Ranger, but apparently they did the same there too. That is just the makings of a great love story. Cynthia did not disappoint.

Gunner and Sydney have both wanted each other for so long that things progress romantically with them early on in the book. It’s not until a rescue mission goes in a surprising direction that they have to work for the relationship they both desire. By that point there are some crazy circumstances that keep them apart against their wishes. There were so many times I found myself reading and thinking I know exactly where this is going and then Cynthia would blindside me with something so completely unexpected. Sharpshooter is full of surprises. The numerous moments of the completely unexpected is reason enough to run and buy this one.

The other side of Gunner is the other reason to read this Shadow Agent book. He has always appeared to be that dark broody character that is hiding something. The only thing he has not hidden is his fierce attraction to Sydney. He was so amazingly caring and protective of her. Even when things were falling apart around them they stood up for each other. Their experience from the EOD of always having the others back fell right into their romantic relationship. The things that are thrown at them is intense. They really have to work to make it safe for them to have the happily ever after that they desperately desire.

Cynthia Eden
