    *** Special Ops #2. *** This book is just as exciting as the first.Young Deputy Robby, who we've met before is Sheriff John Henry's brother. Robby and Wren, a big Marine Sniper, have had an eye on each other awhile now. John Henry and husband, Marine Commander Charlie have 2 kids, plus the Marines under his command, as they go to-and-from their missions; Manny, Haus, Asa, Porter and Wren. Robby gets fired as Deputy and is mad as hell. He gets drunk and wakes in an unusual bed. Wren is waiting when he gets home and finally claims him. Then when Robby's story comes to light, all gather at John Henry's. There's a mystery afoot, and Robby didn't know - but he's a target. More is happening as Robby and Wren cement their feelings and get tattooed. There someone bad causing mayhem; a wreck, a fire, a shooting, and a kidnapping. Rescue is right on the trail as the Marines scramble into action. Wren gets himself in place with his sniper rifle as the warriors circle. Big action, torrid love scenes with steamy M/M sex. We already know some of the cast members as we have met them in the Cade Creek series, but each book can stand alone. It is a typical of Stormy Glenn's great writing, amazing characters, and fast, thrilling tales. We get no cliffhangers and a HEA ! ENJOY ! ==============================

    I really liked the idea of Wren and Robby in the previous book and was excited for their story. However, I could not get past some items in this book and walk away rating it an "ok" but probably should 1 star it. So, Robby ends up naked with a woman in her bed and doesn't remember getting there or what they did. He's worried he might not have used a condom since there's an unopened box on the dresser. So, what does he do? He goes and has sex with Wren within 24 hours, doesn't mention the possible unsafe sexual practice until after him and Wren have the unprotected sex. Wren suggests they go get tested - however, before they do this, they again have unprotected sex. Now, the story ends up later with Robby having been drugged and not having had sex with the woman but I could not get past how silly the characters were written around this issue. This wasn't one of the author's shifter stories where it's made clear human diseases can't be transferred and it affected my entire view of the book. There were also some other nit picky issues like how the attacks occurred, how Robby was fired without John Henry looping him in, etc. that further weakened the entire storyline and left me with way too many eye rolls.

    2.5 starsHonestly, it took me a while to get into the story, the beginning didn't hook me.If at 20% into any story I'm still struggle to keep going there is a huge chance that I might not enjoy it.It wasn't bad, but the plot was a little bit silly.

    I want to read the book that those other reviewers were reading, ’cause it sure wasn't this one. The author’s evil twin struck again. Boy, did she strike.I dunno what happened to Robby. He seemed like a decent man in the previous book. Now? He’s a petulant kid.And Wren is seriously unbalanced. They joke about it but he honestly strikes me as the villain of the piece. He certainly qualifies as a psychotic stalker. This is just way beyond the healthy level. (And I generally enjoy desperately possessive love, so that’s saying something.)Maybe I was lucky in that the book wasted no time to become stupid, so I did not have my hopes raised. That first sex scene? Violent oral sex is something that disgusts me, sorry. Not a fan of violent sex in general but considering how much harm this can do and how fucking personal and disrespectful it is to do that to someone else’s face, while simultaneously making him or her unable to voice a protest… No.“So you may have had unprotected sex while drunk last night. Why don’t we both get tested and if we’re clear we skip the condoms?” (Summarized.) … Yeah, that would be a great idea if not for the fact than most infections of STDs won’t show instantly. You won’t get a clear on the big one for the next six months, moron. This is not made better by then proceeding to fuck the guy again, this time without a condom. I just… I give up. Getting huge tattoos of each other’s name when your relationship is neither clear nor more than a few hours old is just the icing on the stupid cake.And, Robby, I am sure it’s cool that you normally don’t pass out from your customary two beers, but we watched you drink a hell of a lot more, so, quite honestly, the conjecture that you were drugged is waaaaaaaaaaay contrived.Seriously, the non-logic is killing me. I am so very tempted to pick apart what and why, but I’m trying to stop myself. What’s the point, anyway? There’s just so much of it that makes no sense. Contradictions in every sentence. I am not exaggerating. (I wish I was.) Let me sum it up as “nothing made sense and people were wholesale stupid”.I’ll just revisit the age issue, since I puzzled about it the last time. *groan* We learn that Robby took his parents’ death hard. We know from the previous book that John Henry was ten when it happened, and we see here that Robby was seven when he snapped out of the denial of his parents being dead, “a few years later”. So. At the most he is five or six years younger than John Henry. Who has to be in his mid-thirties going by his life history. What the fuck was that about Robby becoming sheriff once John Henry retired, then? Argh. And Robby’s worked as a deputy only for five years! John Henry spent six years with the Marines, returned home and was elected as sheriff four years ago. And those things can’t have followed seamlessly. Twenty-four-year-olds do not get to be sheriffs. Jeez, this is so warped that my mind is exploding.To add insult to injury, this book went there. It actually used “molten lava”. I’d hoped I had left that expression far, far behind. But no such luck. FYI, you can’t melt lava. Lava is molten rock. (Some dictionaries might quibble with me over this, but either way it’s one of the most stupidly redundant expressions used in romance writing.)Once I got over my rage I was just laughing for the rest of it. Until the boredom became too much, at which point I hastily skimmed through the pointless sex to finally be done with it.Thank god it’s over.This explains why I was enthusiastic over the first volume. I’d been expecting something like this, so my gratitude was profound. If not for some re-used expressions I wouldn’t believe that the same person wrote these two books. Honestly, whenever this happens I can’t wrap my head around this author’s dual writing persona, although it's the first time (that I recall) that it happened within the same series. :(

    Absolutely loved this book. Robby and Wren are so easy to identify with. I won't say more and spoil it for anyone. I REALLY can't wait to see what happens next! Thank you, Stormy for another GREAT book!

    I loved Wren and Robby, but the story lacked something... not sure what, but it felt like it was over before it started.

    To my great delight, this is Robby's story. I'd been looking forward to it ever since this younger brother of John Henry appeared in the first book, and I wasn’t disappointed. As with the first book in this series, the characters and the story are very hot, there is quite a bit of action, and the mystery around "who did it" was nicely developed and solved. Robby has a rather tough time of it. The man he admires keeps his distance, and seems to ignore any and all moves to become more than a friend. John Henry (his elder brother, from book one) treats him like a little brother, but a clueless one. And then John Henry fires him. Robby goes on a bender, just wanting to forget it all for a few hours, but rather than help, it makes the situation a lot worse!Wren starts out as a bit of an idiot. Yes, he listens to John Henry's advice, and tries to do the best thing for Robby, but he must have noticed Robby's desperation to get closer to him. And to still hold out on the man, then go all macho on him? That was a bit much for me. Luckily, he redeems himself – with Robb's help, since he keeps reminding Wren about the truth.If you like books about men who are just made for each other, if you enjoy the macho partner being taken down a peg, by a man who is able to stand up and make the guy listen, and if you're looking for a sweet, hot read, then you will probably like this book.

    Wow. I liked Wren in the first book, but in this one? Eh. Not so much. Especially in the beginning. 6 months pass and he doesn't expect Robbie to move on? John Henry is an ass, too. Robbie was too forgiving. He's not a child, he can make up his own damn mind. Let people make their own mistakes, it's called life. He's bound to make some, he'll hopefully learn from them. If someone is constantly holding his hand what doesn't teach him anything except no one trusts him or believes he can do anything.

    Eh. An almost 3 star rating. Didn't connect with the MC's, and the plot was kinda lame. But, this book served its purpose as a quick and predictable entertaining read for a day of boredom.

    Normally I read Stormy's shifter/paranormal stories so this series is a bit outside the norm for me. That being said...I'm actually really liking it.This book did fall back on some of the more familiar tropes Stormy uses in her writing (size difference between the MC's, the dominant alpha male, the "spitfire" smaller character, ect) but I feel like Wren and Robby were much more equally matched then what tends to happen with her paranormal romances. Yes, Robby (the smaller male) was still in danger and Wren played the role of "protector" but Robby wasn't subservient and he didn't necessarily come off as fragile and needy.The mystery at the center of the book was pretty easy to figure out-Robby's stalker is pretty obvious imo but there is a plot twist regarding (view spoiler)[ the stalker's accomplice(hide spoiler)] that I didn't see coming and was kind of interesting.This is the second book in the series and one of the things I'm finding that I really enjoy about it is that none of the characters come off as being "feminized". They are all pretty masculine guys with varying degrees of ego and "machismo". There is vulnerability to each of the characters but their masculinity hasn't been sacrificed in order for that vulnerability to be present. I guess what I'm saying is that the characters come off as the "rough" military/law men they are billed as and I appreciate that.

    Wren and Robby are at a cross purpose but only one of them is aware of the miscommunication. But when secrets threaten their romantic connection will Wren step up and make sure Robby knows to whom he belongs to once and for all? In Taken & Tattooed the second installment of the Special Operations series by Stormy Glenn we find out just how far both men are willing to go.I really enjoyed Wren and Robby. Wren didn’t follow his instincts and his actions lead Robby to believe he doesn’t feel as strongly about having a romantic relationship. And when efforts to protect Robby back fire, more than a romantic future is at stake. When Wren decides to stand by his man he does so with a vengeance. When he decides to follow his gut, a future with Robby is attainable. These characters fit. Robby accepted Wren as he is and even needs someone just like Wren. Wren accepts himself and realizes the his desires and needs dovetail nicely with Robby’s. Once they start talking and stop listening to others instead of each other, their future takes shape. Ms. Glenn provides us with a well-rounded and enjoyable story. I love these men and can’t wait to watch each one find their happily ever after. Four Twinkling Stars

    These are just my notes because I have too many reviews to write.Robbie's an ass for running the next morning without waking her. Going on way too long about how horrified he is that he might have slept with a woman. Too much telling. Good mentioning that men get raped far more often than we think because of the stigma. Robby is TSTL for not thinking of the waitress as the person he might have slept with. Why would he think that having slept with a woman while drunk would make Wren not want him?Called him mate. This is not a shifter story.They never clean up after sex or even refer to the mess. No of course the good woman couldn't be a lesbian! She was forced! Geez. Even though the other apparently wasn't a lesbian either, they pushed that she was a lot too and never once said outright that clearly she wasn't a lesbian. Anyway there was the evil woman and there was the stupid mark and those were all the women in the book. Ms. Glenn's sexism yet again.There was great danger and potential for peril but it just fizzled. I wanted someone wounded, damn it!

    Fun characters - I really enjoy Wren's reactions and how they keeps showing up in later books too. This is the 2nd of 5 books in the series so far but there is definitely room for more. What I like is that each book is a full story based on 2 characters with a beginning, middle and end but, you get to see other characters from the other stories throughout.

    3.5 StarsWhile I enjoyed most of this book,(Stormy never lets me down)the ending or should I say 'who done it' did. I felt the ending was a little flat and summed up. Plus no surprises at all.Hope brother Bill get his story next.
