Into the Dark (The Bodyguards, Book 6) by Cindy Gerard

Amy Walker endured unspeakable horrors while being held as a hostage before she was rescued by Dallas Garrett and his brothers from E.D.E.N., Inc. Amy is determined to leave the past behind…but only after she gets some answers to the questions that haunt her: Why was she abducted by the terrorists? Why is her mother locked up in a mental institution?

Dallas wants Amy to know he's a man she can trust. He's incapable of offering her his love but promises his sworn protection while she embarks on her quest to discover the truth about her family…and herself.

Working on a lead, Amy and Dallas team up with an investigative journalist and an unlikely accomplice whose motives are as murky as his past. Soon they are drawn into the depths of a secret organization that practices non-consensual mind-control experimentation―one that Amy's own grandfather appears to be involved in. With a ruthless enemy closing in fast Amy and Dallas race against time and risk their lives to expose these crimes against humanity…and share a passion neither of them could have expected.


VAZGINO
I was really excited to read Dallas and Amy's story and can say it didn't disappoint. I really liked their reunion and them getting to spend time together again. But I felt I didn't get to know them entirely. It was like just touching the surface and not getting into deep. It disappointed me a little.

What disappointed me a lot and what definitely lowers my rating was not having all the Garretts in the mission in Argentina. I understand why Cindy Gerard would use instead the next series hero: that way you get to know him here, but because of that it felt like a different book. Yes, there was Dallas Garrett but it didn't feel like a Bodyguard series book completely.

With this I'm not saying I hated Gabe Jones (the next series hero), on the contrary, I'm intrigued and I especially loved the tiny parts between him and Jenna (the next series heroine). I will definitely read their book but I wish there could've been less of them and more of Dallas and Amy, Dallas and the Garretts.

And of course the parts we got with the Garretts didn't disappoint and my favorite was definitely having more of Nolan. After having nothing of him in the last book, it was a pleasure reading him one last time, especially him being the family's baby, I loved how he was trying to help his older brother.

OVERALL:

'Into the Dark' was a great ending to The Bodyguards series which even with its ups and downs achieved to trap me in its complicated, interesting and thrilling world.

I'm sad this is it with the Garretts. After spending a lot of time knowing them, I will definitely miss them A LOT *cries* but I'm looking forward to reading more from Cindy Gerard. Definitely a great voice in the romantic suspense series.

RATING THE WHOLE SERIES: 3/5

Books in my order of preference:

1. Book 1: To The Edge (Nolan & Jillian)
2. Book 3: To The Brink (Ethan & Darcy)
3. Book 5: Under the Wire (Manny & Lily)
4. Book 6: Into the Dark (Dallas & Amy)
5. Book 4: Over the Line (Jason & Janey)
6. Book 2: To the Limit (Eve & Mac)

I love this series, and I love this author. Ever since Amy was introduced into the series, I have wanted to know her story. Now that I have read it, it was perfect. I am glad the author gave Amy back her strength and didn't leave her as broken as she was when she disappeared. She and Dallas were a perfect match, even though it took him a while to realize it. When she shows up on his doorstep unannounced and needing him, it is like Dallas finally starts living again. As he realizes how much she has changed, he admires her even more. When he catches Amy trying to leave again, Dallas refuses to let her out of his sight and ends up accompanying her on a mission of vengeance which quickly turns into a mission of national security. Along the way, they gain the help of several characters I love from Cindy Gerard's other series. It was nice to see where Gabe, Lang, and Reed were introduced. I have really enjoyed this series and will miss reading about all the crazy family croquet matches:-)

When I read "To the Brink" I was really looking forward to reading Dallas' and Amy's story. Now the moment has come and I have to say - not bad at all!

Both main characters carry their psychological baggages and both deal with their problems in different ways. However, it's obvious that Amy has dealt with her horrible experiences from the Philippines in a more pro-active way. OK, I don't know how credible her transformation from victim to battle-ready amazon is, but this didn't really diminish the pleasure of reading her story. On the other hand, Dallas was just great (and a bit more plausible). The caring way he dealt with Amy was very moving and of course in the end she rewarded him for this. I just loved it!

Cindy Gerard is gifted with a very rare talent: she manages very artfully to introduce future main characters in her present plot. In this book she presented Gabe and Jenna so cleverly that these two nearly overshadowed Dallas and Amy. But only nearly, because I wouldn't have wanted to miss their story.

A fast-paced, exciting book. For Gerard-fans an absolute must! If you haven't yet read books from this author you have really missed something!

I like Cindy Gerard's books, especially the fact that we are introduced to numerous people, and we see them in subsequent books. All the guys and girls end up in pairs in each story, and it's really like visiting with family.

There aren't too many more things I can tell about this series of books. As before each main character has his own story. But each book is completely different, of course I read them in order. I can't begin to rave about them enough. They are great.

OMG! This story will slap you around till you don't know which way is up. It really draws you in and you feel yourself falling into the characters. Extremely well written.

This is a nice closure for the series. It segue ways well into the next series of books- starting with the inscrutable Gabe and Jenna.

Note: PTSD- not PSTD. That annoyed me since the mistake was repeated at least twice.
Love Cindy Gerard. Always enjoy her books and this did not disappoint
