Review by Oleander
When Marie Maxwell's cover as an international smuggler is blown, the Parisian operative is called back to Washington D.C. to be placed in protective custody. Jack Benson and Jack Reno are a pair of renegade federal agents assigned the difficult task of keeping her alive.
Although agency rules forbid romantic involvement between covert personnel, Jack, Marie, and Reno can't reign in the passion they feel for one another. Isolated from the world at Ghost Moon Ranch in Wyoming, both men realize they are falling in love with the sophisticated Parisian.
Marie has her hands full dealing with the two headstrong agents and her attraction to both of them. Knowing their relationship is as dangerous as the assassin hunting her, will she choose her career, or will she lose herself to the all-consuming fire they ignite within her? Ultimately, Marie discovers love, and the pleasure in holding a pair of Jacks.
Marie Maxwell is an international smuggler, so confident of her cover and abilities that she is oblivious to the fact that her cover has been blown. Not only that, but there is a plot to kill her. With ties to the US President, the feisty Parisian operative is forced into protective custody.
Marie is a strong confident woman, able to hang with the big boys and hold her own. That is, until sexy and fearless, if not a bit unorthodox, agents Jack Benson and Jack Reno are assigned to hold Marie in protective custody. Right from their first meeting there is a magnetism that pulls the three together, and the reader with them, as the seduction of Marie begins. Benson is a playboy and oh-so-charming, but hard-edged at times as well. With his outright suggestiveness, this makes for an explosive compilation. This only compliments Reno’s gentle and sweet personality and even sweeter words, words that Marie can’t ignore. Before long the three find themselves tangled in more than just the sheets.
Marie is confused and torn between the two, not understanding her attraction to both and therefore feels a little guilty. Benson is outrageously sexy and makes no bones about what he desires. As Marie’s hesitancy wanes her attraction to both men grow, even for the brooding Reno, whose sensitivities I couldn’t help but find appealing but still masculine at the same time.
A Pair of Jacks steams up the pages with its erotic tale of the stubborn Jack Benson, the gentle giant Jack Reno, and feisty Marie who can’t help but submit. This is an intoxicating and captivating love story between three unlikely people.
