    I liked this book but it made it to 3.50 stars by the hair of it's chinny chin chin. The heroine nearly killed this book for me. She was one of those girls who has to make everything harder than it needs to be. And the hero was a manwhore. Who happens to be packing ten inches in his pants. *eyeroll* But my gripes about the H/H aside, this was pretty good. The plot was Shannon McKenna-esque though overall I thought Jami Alden was missing the intensity Shannon McKenna brings to all her stories. *s I liked this book but it made it to 3.50 stars by the hair of it's chinny chin chin.

I am looking forward to reading scary Danny's story when it's published but I don't know about Derek's story. Do I really want to read about some Paris Hilton clone?

    This was a fun, entertaining read. This was book 1 of the Gemini Men Series, it's about 3 brothers running a security company. This book was about Ethan, the brother who plays the field, can sweet talk women into falling for his killer smile and charming ways. Gemini is hired by Jerry Kramer when his daughter is missing (everyone thinks she has simply run away).

Ethan meets Toni at the same time, an investigator as well hired by Jerry's ex-wife for the same reason. While Toni is immediately attracted to Ethan, she fights the attraction, not wanting to be another notch in Ethan's bedpost. Ethan is of course attracted to Toni and sets off to pursue her for sex while they both investigate the case. The suspense part of this book was interesting when you find out this is all about bio-terrorism, but it's really secondary to the budding romance between Ethan and Toni. I liked this story, it kept me glued and wanting for more. The heat and chemistry between these two was intense, their dialogue quite entertaining. I found myself captured by the hot sex, and smiling at the banter. I liked Toni quite a bit, while she never lied about her attraction to Ethan, she was definitely not someone he could walk all over and take advantage of. she was funny, sexy and tough, I really liked this character. fun fun fun!

    4 ½ stars – Romantic Suspense Caught, the first in Jami Alden's Gemini Men series, is an intriguing romantic suspense with a very sexy, likable alpha male hero and a smart and feisty heroine. Caught has just the right mix and balance of mystery, suspense, and romance.

    I loved Ms. Alden's Gemeni men. I can't wait to read Dereks' story next. I loved Ethan and his computer nerd, Toni.

    I came across something about the heroine that made me go Eww - Toni, the heroine, was hoping the hero didn't notice the stubble on her knee where she missed shaving. I know some women are more hirsute than others but I've never known one to have hair on her KNEES! Apart apart from that epiphanous moment, Caught is just an average read. No suspense even though they're looking for a missing teen and neither are the sex scenes erotic. Ethan is a ten-incher, IIRC, but that's about it.

    Romance was HOT! Maybe more than I bargained for -- but a new author in the romantic suspense category always catches my attention.

    Ethan Taggert formerly-known-as Lancelot while serving in the Navy, is a HUNK of a man who's never been much into relationships, never cared to and never will be. He can pick and choose...seriously...he can. Either you are 50 or 15, you'll be charmed and hooked. He's considered the pretty boy at Gemini Security and he knows it. Toni Crawford is a PI who lacks confidence in herself where men are involved. Boyfriend cheated on her. Parents fought all the time when she was a child. Now as a PI she Ethan Taggert formerly-known-as Lancelot while serving in the Navy, is a HUNK of a man who's never been much into relationships, never cared to and never will be. He can pick and choose...seriously...he can. Either you are 50 or 15, you'll be charmed and hooked. He's considered the pretty boy at Gemini Security and he knows it. Toni Crawford is a PI who lacks confidence in herself where men are involved. Boyfriend cheated on her. Parents fought all the time when she was a child. Now as a PI shes jaded from all the infidelity cases she has so obviously she gets leery of relationships and especially of any guy as gorgeous as Ethan. As soon as they meet sparks fly. Ethan, our Jerk-we-love, has his reasons for acting as he does and as we learn more about him you cant help yourself to cheer for him and his brothers. And Toni is just so very believable as the nerdy woman who just can't believe that someone like Ethan would be interested in her. The mystery is ok. We find out from the beginning what's happened to the victim and why - we're just waiting to see when the hero and heroine figure it out. The sex is good!! Not overpowering the plot. I wanted to read about Danny first...but next we get Derek. So there I go...!!!!

    Great book just hums along. The plot is solid, but let's face it, it's the steam scenes that are just superb. Well-written, no icky stuff and just plain steam. Hero is something of a gorgeous manwhore, and the heroine is absolutely great. I love that she's a geek, who doesn't suddenly develop hitherto unknown martial arts or weaponry skills, but isn't a no-hoper type either. Going straight on to the second book, although Scary Danny intrigues me too, so it'll be a Gemini weekend for me!!

    This is one of my favorite romantic suspense books! There was lots of action to keep my interest, lots of hot sex, a plot that was intriguing and even though we pretty much knew what the bad guy was up to, the wondering about how and when the good guys were gonna find out and come to the rescue kept me glued to my kindle! I loved Toni! She was a badass in her in her own nerd girl way! Ethan was a smokin hot playboy who tamed himself for the right girl! *sigh* Loved it!

    4.5* Loved the leads. Toni was such a nice break from the wishy washy, annoying females I have read lately. And she wasn't named Eva or Ava! Ethan was tough but vunerable, and give or take a millimeter, was awesome. Loved the slow build and them not having sex within the first 4 pages. Can't wait to get to know the rest of the family!

    I wanted to like this book more than I did. It had a great plot with the potential for a ton of action and suspense but somehow it just didn't deliver. Maybe because both the H/h spent more time thinking about how much they wanted to have sex with the other or how hot the other person was then they did worrying about the missing teen. Seriously, the thoughts about each other's anatomy were every other paragraph. Then there was a lot of sex, which I don't mind if there's a lot of story to go with I wanted to like this book more than I did.

Then there was a lot of sex, which I don't mind if there's a lot of story to go with it, but there wasn't enough suspense IMO. Then there was the heroine who didn't have a very high opinion of herself and she kept thinking that the hero, Ethan would dump her because he could have anyone. She also was disgusted by Ethan's "Man-whore" ways but yet she had sex with him in less then 48 hours. I liked the relationship between the brothers and also with their dad. I also thought that bad guy was pretty intense and interesting. The overall storyline was good I just wish we had more of it and less thoughts on the "hotness" of the H/h. Still I liked the book but it could have been so much more. I read the teaser for the next book about Derrick and I'm not sure I'm interested since the heroine sounds really unappealing. Still would like to read the book on Danny, the older brother.

    The chemistry between Ethan and Toni is exciting. Toni puts off the attitude that she does not care about the world and Ethan is the type of male that just walks into her life and makes her realize that the front that she was putting up is fake. Ethan is the type of man that is not looking for a relationship. Casual one nights are all that the can think about right now and is happy with the way things are going until one of his clients call him and tells him that his teenage daughter is missing.

This is where Ethan runs into Toni who was also hired for the case my by the child's mother. As Toni and Ethan fight their chemistry becomes apparent. As they search for the girl they uncover some sinster things that are taking place and a normal 17 year old should not be involved in and along the way Toni and Ethan uncover more about their chemistry. The sex scenes are hot.. read with caution

They find out things about Kara that her parents had no idea of, but the reason she has been kidnapped is to do with her father and he is keeping this a secret from both Ethan and Toni and this leads them into danger. Ethan likes his women and he is very attracted to Toni who has not been with a man for awhile so she is wary but is very attracted to him too. I loved these two together, the sex was great and the story came together well.

    Great start to this series! I loved Ethan. He was sexy, arrogant, funny, and totally male. I thought he and Toni had explosive chemistry. She was an adorable super geek – great with computers, not so great with the opposite sex. I loved the exchanges between them. And damn, the sex was hot. There were two stories going on that I found equally interesting: Toni and Ethan’s growing relationship and joint investigation, and the mystery surrounding Ethan’s mom. I’m hooked and I cannot wait to read D Great start to this series! I loved Ethan. He was sexy, arrogant, funny, and totally male. I thought he and Toni had explosive chemistry.

    I quite liked this one maybe more 3.5 then 4 though...I liked the characters although all this about we cant be in love already bullsh*t that so many romance writers like to throw in there and have the heroin whine over is a bit annoying... the suspense part was all right and the sex was smoking *fan self*

    Caught is about a teenage who gets kidnapped. The PI that is hired by the mother and the security company by her father. The two are untrusting of each other but fall in love. A decent naughty read.

    It took me a while to warm up to the characters in this book. I don't know if it was the whole "he/she is not my type" that both Ethan and Toni felt for each other or what, but I didn't fall in love with either of them until about halfway through. By then I was invested in the suspense aspect and I really started to root for their happy ever after. I liked it enough that I'm very interested in reading Derek's and Danny's stories.

What the hell? That's not normal thinking. This character, Toni, is abrasive, cowardly, immature, contrary, and churlish. It is not a good combination. And she thinks very little of herself. I mean, why does anyone want to read the POV of a person that thinks they are so worthless? I would have DNF'd this in the first chapter, but the missing teen story line was sounding pretty good. Unfortunately, Toni's horrible attitude and disposition resulted in my inability to stand her long enough to finish reading the book. I skimmed the hell out of the last 2/3rds of it because I wanted to know how it ended, but I hated Toni. She did not improve, not even even in the end. She had sweet moments - usually when Ethan had fucked her into being partially unconscious - but she was a wimp and lashed out at people. She wasn't even a nice person, but apparently she had super hot legs and is therefore somehow deserving of a HEA. My only complaint about Ethan, aside from the fact that I swear to god I've seen numerous heroes named "Ethan Taggart" before... is that he doesn't take the missing teen situation seriously. "Oh, she's just off with friends or something, she'll be back soon, you'll see." How many times has that phrase been uttered before finding a dead body? The police are already skeptical, so how's about you be the one to take this shit seriously? Even when things start to develop and you see the teen has gotten involved in some not-so-great stuff, he still brushes off her disappearance. That annoyed the shit outta me. Then during my skim to the ending, he did the same thing when Toni was in danger. "She probably just left me, the bad guy is on the run - no worries." For somebody that spent so long in the military, he is not very good at detecting a threat. Speaking of threats... this one is a doozy, which is why I couldn't give up on the book even though I wanted to ring Toni's neck and shake some sense into Ethan. Blackmail, biological weapons, kidnapping, pornography, drugs, sexual slavery, murder... this book seemed to have it all. The villain was really fucking scary and the threat to Kara was insane. I don't think a real teenage girl would come out of that so... smoothly. Sorry, you don't get kidnapped and almost sold into sexual slavery and then go purse shopping right after your rescue. (view spoiler)[ She didn't actually do that, I'm using hyperbole to highlight the cavalier attitude she had. Class dismissed. (hide spoiler)] So yeah. Not digging this at all. This might have earned one more star had there not been two endings. Like, the story was pretty much over and it was fine. But then Toni chickens out of the relationship and runs away, getting into trouble and needing to be saved by Ethan. Great. Thanks. Give me another dose of Toni's stupidity and cowardice, because I hadn't gotten enough of that in the previous 300 pages. I guess, basically... any scene without Toni was a decent read. Some of the sex was insanely hot, Ethan has a... way with words. So any scene without Toni and the sex scenes. I mean, skip any time Toni talks... or thinks. That's it, don't read any of Toni's dialogue or POV unless it's during sex. Basically... don't bother reading this book.
