I needed to understand how such a thing could work and reading those pages out of context wouldn't hurt, as a sex scene between the H/h isn't exactly a spoiler, right? ;)Wow, what a trip! All I can say after reading it is, Ms. Adair must have been on drugs or something when she wrote that particular scene, LOL. I guess it was supposed to be fun and sexy, but I didn't get that vibe and laughed like a lunatic while reading it. Seriously, the whole thing was hysterical!If you're curious like me, keep reading...She twisted around to look down between them. "Can you get it out?""Oh, it's come out to play, honey. But that's not the problem," Kane said, laughing at the ridiculousness of what they were attempting. Only AJ… "It's the getting it in."AJ leaned her body forward, laying across the neck of the camel, its harsh, coarse hair abrading her skin as she bared her bottom to Kane. "Now?"He positioned her with both hands on her hips, and she leaned forward, stretched out over Kika's broad back. He withdrew his hand, trailing his damp fingers across her hip, and used them to guide himself into her. She gasped as he filled her, and the sensation was like nothing he'd ever known before. Beneath them, the stoic camel walked on, its rocking motion driving Kane as he moved within AJ's depths."Kika's watching us," AJ said suddenly."Kika," Kane said sternly, "face forward. Watch where we're going." The curious camel lifted her lip, exposing large yellow teeth. She and Kane made eye contact. Kika blinked her ridiculously long lashes and faced forward, without missing a step."Thank you," AJ said. "Now, where were we?""One of us is naked, the other is inside the naked one," he said, his tone Sahara dry as he pulled her hard against him."Yum. Indeed you are." AJ flapped a hand at the camel's face. Kika lifted her lip and rolled her eyes. Disgruntled, AJ twisted to look back at Kane. "I don't think I can have wild camel sex with Kika watching.""Are you nuts?" Kane demanded. "After all this contorting, you're telling me no?""I'm not telling you no… exactly. I'm telling you I can't have sex while a camel is watching me come.""Kika," Kane said firmly. "Go. Go. Go."The camel picked up speed and started trotting. The fastest she'd gone since they'd started the journey."U-uncle," AJ cried as Kane's penis was jammed high inside her with each jarring thud of Kika's splayed feet in the sand. It felt incredible. Wonderful. Full. Too much… Ahhhh. Perfect. "Oh, Lord. This is amazing. Isn't it amazing?""Amazing," Kane agreed. "Run, Kika," he said, and the camel quickened her steps even further, doing all the work for Kane, until all he had to do was hold on and ride out the storm as AJ's body tightened over his and they came together like liquid lightning.Their bodies trembled from the force of their pleasure, and it was several long minutes before AJ could manage to speak coherently. "Takes the word 'humping' to a whole new level, doesn't it?" She laughed as she sank back against him, their bodies still joined.So, who would like to take a wild camel ride and tell me if what Kyle and AJ did is doable? LOL!

    I guess I'm in the minority here but I enjoy this series. I really liked this one. I know everyone is all about the Camel thing but I found it quite humorous. Doable? Who knows but in this instance it's fiction. I liked all the Wright brothers. Kane is awesome. AJ was just the right woman for him. She brought out the best of him. The name guessing was hilarious. Lots of action, suspense, romance, sex and humor. I give it 4 stars!

Some chapters ended abruptly then picked up in a whole new day. I'm sorry to say, but This Reader felt lost a time or two. I laughed at all the ridiculous names Kane came up with trying to guess what "AJ" stood for. He would throw out a new name at the most unexpected times: Abbreviate Jabberer (she talked a lot), Agatha Jethro, Amy Jean, Angina, Anabelle, Antartica Joy, Allison Jumpup, Aphrodite Jacintha. 3 Stars from This Reader because I liked it, but not much.

(You have to read the book to see why that phrase fits)...Of all the T-FLAC series I've read so far, the banter and humor between Kane Wright and AJ Cooper - in addition to the riddle he tries to solve throughout the story - makes Out of Sight a book you can't put down.The characters...

They are exciting together and you can feel the electricity in Cherry Adair's work here.

    Out of Sight was full of non-stop action and fantastic characters I really ended up liking as they raced across the desert on a mission to shut down a madman-- and fell a bit in love along the way. I really enjoyed both AJ and Kane *girly swoon* I loved Kane. But first AJ.

Alright she's the first female T-FLAC agent we've read about and she's pretty awesome even if she's not quite perfect and can cause trouble now and again. I liked her determination and that she really didn't complain or grumble about everything they went through--and they went through some freaking crazy stuff. She's just a tough chickie and a great heroine. And Kane Wright. Damn me, but is that not a fab hero name? He's a total alpha male and master of disguise and just sexy as hell. I really liked that he was big and tough, got things done, but had hidden demons that haunted him. It was a great combo.These two. The chemistry between them? Whewboy. Things are definitely hot and steamy. These two couldn't get enough of each other. They're relationship was a little different. It's not sweet and flowery really but damn if they aren't fun to watch together. They poke buttons and drive each other nuts and just have that fun teasing dynamic between them. One of my favorite things was Kane being hung up on figuring out what AJ stood for. It was hilarious and ridiculously fun what he came up with.Okay a little on the sexy bits. Adair is one of my favorites when it comes to naughty scenes because she's just so blasted creative. You never know what her characters are gonna come up with and these two were creative about their loving. I don't they made it to an actual bed once single time. lol There may have even been some naughty moments during a camel ride. I mean. Really.Really I had a great time with Out of Sight. The characters were fun and it was nice to see them on equal footing when it came to their jobs. The race across the desert was exciting and you could seriously feel their discomfort and I really liked how things all turned out. The only thing that kept this from a higher rating was the ending was a bit too rushed and logistically it just didn't quite work for me how the final showdown happened. Still though, an excellent read.Reviewed for herding cats & burning soup.

    Now that I've finally finished the book I'd say it was pretty enjoyable.I thought I’d read something of hers before, but couldn’t remember how it was so that speaks for itself there. After finishing this one I looked it up and realized I’d tried to read the second in this series and actually had to slam it down after reading a handful of pages, so I’m surprised this turned out to even be readable after that atrocity. There were problems, but not ones that were so bad I wouldn’t read it again. I Now that I've finally finished the book I'd say it was pretty enjoyable.I thought I’d read something of hers before, but couldn’t remember how it was so that speaks for itself there. After finishing this one I looked it up and realized I’d tried to read the second in this series and actually had to slam it down after reading a handful of pages, so I’m surprised this turned out to even be readable after that atrocity. There were problems, but not ones that were so bad I wouldn’t read it again. I was pretty pleasantly surprised.The description on the back was misleading, because it really didn’t play out like that, and it implies that A.J. took the mission solely to impress Kane, which wasn’t the case at all. She got picked for it and was gun-shy about getting shot, and then blew it, which caused Kane to be mad and not worried like it says. There wasn’t much concern, he wanted to send her back and do the mission alone because she’d screwed up. And as far as desiring her, their “long-denied passion” he acted like she didn’t even exist, not getting distracted by her and pretty much ignoring her. Then he gets caught up in lust while he’s photographing her and starts to worry about her putting her life in danger to kill Rasaaq. He pulls her out from her dinner with the man, and then they just have sex in the elevator, out of nowhere. And he walks away from it like he never did it, not really being affected and composing himself easily. It was annoying how she wouldn’t just say what her name was, and it was very contrived how every time Kane tried to push the issue she would turn him away barely and then something would suddenly happen to distract him. It was clear the author was dragging it out until the end, when he would finally guess it right. I actually expected more of their past, that it would resurface at the end but the end was just cut off suddenly and that was disappointing. I always expect more of a wrap-up and some alone time between the main characters. I really expected A.J. to reconnect with her father and brother and they'd come to terms with her profession and her mom would accept her as she was instead of still being bitter about her quitting the beauty pageant circuit. Instead, there's no communication between her and her family the entire book. I've never read anything like this where such a problem is introduced and then not resolved.I would really like to see just once where an author makes a tomboy in the traditional meaning of the word. A girl who maybe dresses sporty and isn't drop dead gorgeous, model material like A.J. is. It's annoying to me when authors make tomboys that are so hot every guy that looks at them wants them, but they don't care about beauty, they don't like to dress up, and they actually prefer to be in jeans and a T-shirt. I would have appreciated it more had A.J. not had such good looks to rely on and been just pretty to Kane, because no matter how hard the author tried to slam home that A.J. didn't care about material things or being pampered, I didn't really buy it. I guess it's just natural to dislike someone who's so good-looking, everyone likes them, and they get everything like beauty really is that important. It would be nice to see the not as pretty character get love, to prove that looks aren't everything but no one will do that.Also, the author kept trying and failing to make A.J. tough. Despite pointing out several times that A.J. didn't complain, that was all she was doing. Idk what the author thought qualified as a complaint, but complaining about the quiet, the heat, walking in the heat, etc. are complaints. Saying they're not complaints don't change the fact that they're complaints, and A.J. was doing that the whole time, making it clear that she's not as self-reliable and capable as the author wanted her to be. It's really annoying when an author says their character is one way, I guess wanting them to be that way, but all of their actions are making them completely different. All in all though the book did have qualities that I enjoyed, their profession was really cool and their was humor thrown in and some action that made it a pretty good read. The chemistry between them was pretty good too.The camel scene though was pretty awkward. Talking to a camel and telling them to look away while you have sex on the running animal and try to find a position that works is just strange to me. It was clumsy and not romantic at all to me!

    I didn’t care for this T-FLAC instalment as much as I did the previous ones, but it is still quite a good read, it just didn’t really do it for me. A.J Cooper is trying her best to keep up with what is expected of her as a trainee under the guidance of Kane, who isn’t handling the pressure too well of being responsible for another person’s life;“He was good at a number of things.

I wish I could have related to the characters more and felt for them as a couple, and then I probably would have rated this higher.

I always, always (don't shoot me!) like the woman to be a bit vulnerable and I LOVE the man to be protective. Probably 'cos I have been the protectee for my brothers and later my kids all my life ?! This was a fast pace quick read. Read it in one sitting. This is not as heavy as some of her later books, it is what I would call a 'light to medium' read. Not fluff, but not intense either.Highly recommended

    No one - and I mean no one - can write an action scene like Cherry Adair. And I think this one has been my favorite of the series so far, regardless of the enormous plot holes big enough to swallow a camel (and the love scene involving a camel). I just loved AJ. I thought I would get tired of the multitude of descriptions about how beautiful she is, but it actually underscored her other attributes - how smart, tough-ass and funny she is. And that name game they played? Funny, funny stuff. And so No one - and I mean no one - can write an action scene like Cherry Adair.

    A.J. is a rookie sharpshooter that messes up her first assignment and Kane wants to ship her back to the States. She's the only one for the job, A.J. has been shaken after being shot during training and is determined to redeem herself by completing this mission with Kane. Kane has been burying his emotions but finds A.J. cracking his shields. It's pretty dry going the first part of the book. Then Kane seems to be a different person.

Last summer I was in my local library looking for some new romance authors (um, not that I was avoiding my dissertation or anything....) - I started in the "A"s and just worked my way down the rows. It didn't take me long to stumble across "Adair" (- isn't the predictability of the alphabet amazing?). My library has most of Ms. Adair's backlist and this is the one I picked up because the back cover sounded like something I would like. I knew that I loved Romance Suspense and strong female heroines, so I added it to my pile. Consequently, after reading this book, I have read most of Adair's backlist, and now buy her new releases (Riptide just hit my Nook yesterday). See, libraries do benefit authors. While I have enjoyed most of Adair's backlist (though I will say I'm not a paranormal fan, so those that get into that topic aren't as enjoyable for me), my biggest praise for Cherry is probably her relationship with her fans - she treats us so well and makes us feel special! In fact, the paperback of "Out of Sight" that I now own is a copy Adair sent to me (autographed!) from a social media contest - the first one even got lost in the mail and she was kind enough to send me a second copy. Like I said, she treats us well, which goes a long way to keeping authors on my to-buy list. First let me start by saying that "Out of Sight" is one of my top two favorite Cherry Adair books ("Kiss and Tell" being the other). Being the first one I read, it will always hold a special spot for me, but on top of that, her earlier books just have a bit more magic (not literally, like I said, I'm not big into paranormal romances) than her more recent books. Maybe it's the genuineness of the heroes and heroines - I'm not exactly sure, but I love the hero and heroine in this book. Like most readers, I have themes and characteristics in my heroes/heroines that I like and don't like. After the first couple of pages, I was fairly convinced that this was a book of which I wasn't going to be a huge fan. Right off the bat we're introduced to our heroine: a rookie sniper named AJ, who works for an anti-terrorist unit and had just blown a op. In a big way. I think this was something hard for me to digest at first because I was so used to "the perfect heroine"; I think I was coming off a big historical kick at the time. From her first scene in the book (THE first scene in the book), we learn that AJ isn't perfect and she royally screwed up, and I wasn't sure how the author was going to handle her redemption (having faith in the formula of romances with HEAs, I figured there had to be a redemption). But in the end, this mistake made AJ and her later actions a more believable and likable character for me; her redemption felt well-deserved and well-earned. On top of that, I found Kane, the hero, to be a wonderfully written hero with a believable, complete character arc. (As a side note, I can't believe I just wrote "character arc" in a review; I used to roll my eyes when I read reviews with that phrase. I think I need to get back to science...and I'm sure my advisor would agree.) He begins with anger and resentment towards AJ (and understandably so considering the FUBAR she makes of the operation), and gradually changes his mind about her and her skill as she proves herself and works towards fixing her mistakes. I thought both characters made good emotional progress through the course of the book.And if for no other reason to read this book, how many sex-on-a-camel scenes have actually been written? Because this book has one. If that's not a selling point, then I don't know what is. If you've never read Cherry Adair, be prepared for over-the-top. As I've subsequently found out, Adair loves her explosions and rather unrealistic action sequences. Because I expect it, I'm generally prepared for them. I have read some of her books where there are just too many explosions used as a device to drive the plot forward ("Hush", for example), but the craziness has become kind of an endearing quality of Adair's books for me. I fully understand that this doesn't work for everyone, but I find it a fun, unrealistic escapism. Like watching the A-Team. Adair definitely writes a different type of Romance Suspense than what authors like Pamela Clare and Maya Banks write. Adair's heroes (and heroines) generally don't get too angsty - which I find to be a nice relief, and her over-the-top plots are pure fun. While I like angst on occasion, I have to take it in doses, as it's not one of my favorite themes. I know when I pick up a Cherry Adair book I'm going to go on a rip-roarin adventure that defies the probable; but I always have a good time. And "Out of Sight" is no exception.See, good things can come out of a Mid-Dissertation Crisis!

The ops is to take out terrorist Fazur Raazaq, and they believe AJ will draw him out with her beauty (she is a model, Kane is a photographer)...In Egypt, the story begins with unexpectedly locating Fazur... and AJ has him in her sights, but panics, closes her eyes, and misses... it leaves AJ & Kane with plan A, and AJ working very hard to prove herself, to herself, to Kane, and to T-FLAC... the two are opposites - AJ needs to talk when she is nervous, upset, bored, etc... Kane wants silence... but little by little, they get closer - emotionally and physcially...Unbeknownst to the world, a peace summit is occuring at the site of a newly discovered, in tact pyramid in an isolated area, where a resort has been built... and Fazar has targeted them - 1st by a 100 mile radius electrical impulse interupter (cars, cells, radios, airplanes, etc don't work) and then he will infect them all with an airborn virus, and sell the antidote to their countries...AJ & Kane know he has the virus, and are 8 hours behind him, following through a sand storm, on camels (where they have creative sex, hmmmm),finally tracking him down... they end up killing him, blowing up the pyramid (how sad), and saving the presidents & royalty... and ending up in 12 days of quarintine... where they get to declare their love for one another...

    Every book I have read I love. I am loving Cherry's books more and more. It's like reading a female version of Bond or Robert Ludlums. Great stories, great action, and great sex and in the strangest places. Think desert, camel and do I need to say more? The Tangos who are the bad guys who are ruthless and believe me this one is and the hero and heroine are out stop them at all cost.

Profile of the characters - excellent - facts and traits History, photos of sites, even letters from disgruntled camel's reps - read the book then the letter - so funny.It like extra's on blu-rays give the reader an insight to behind scenes of the book. Really enjoyed that.All over a great book which takes you on a great adventure and loved the extra stuff as well. Just brilliant.

    This entry for the series starts out with action - what a plus. To my thinking this is an action adventure series that has been light on the action. It's just in time for Kane Wright's spotlight where he gets to show every side of him and there isn't a side that model worthy AJ Cooper doesn't find drool-worthy. Once again I feel this is just on the brink of being a series I can't do without. The villain was a perfect fit for diabolical and the story seemed to flow well.

It's just in time for Kane Wright's spotlight where he gets to show every side of him and there isn't a side that model worthy AJ Cooper doesn't find drool-worthy. Once again I feel this is just on the brink of being a series I can't do without. The villain was a perfect fit for diabolical and the story seemed to flow well. Nothing like a maniacal psychopath determined to rule the world to notch the action sequences and the intricacy of the plot. I found the many action sequences vividly fulfilling and liked the star couple together and separately. Which was an exceedingly good thing since the story was almost insular. I believed the chemistry and sexual tension between them but found the love a tad too quick and convenient. AJ's warrior persona was a beacon for females that serve in the protective forces as she successfully showed she was more than a pretty face and a shapely form while battling recovery from a horrific training accident just a few months before. Kane represented the alpha testosterone brigade well with the preconceptions and the drive to protect. I missed the Wright family that have been a staple up to this point but liked a glimpse at some of the other T-Flac members.

    As usual, I loved another T-FLAC book! Except this book didn't have an epilogue, or a chapter following up with the couple AFTER the mission was over. So the ending was a little different than the other books. I really liked A.J. I loved that she was beauty pageant beautiful, but hated that about herself. I loved all the tension between the two of them at the beginning. Both of them being very attracted to each other, but neither one of them wanting to let the other one know or act on it.

It made it all the more gratifying when Kane finally just kissed her!I did find one mistake. Half way through the book, A.J. called her brother Gideon instead of Gabriel. oops. Also, I guess I'm just the kind of person that needs everything spelled out for them, but was Angina her name? If it was where does the "J' in A.J. come into play? I wanted a clear cut answer on her name. Just because answered to Angina at the end didn't really necessarily mean that was her name, he had been calling her that on and off the whole time they were together. I think she would have answered to any of the stupid names he was spouting.

Moreover, Kane and AJ have intense chemistry and their love/hate banter proves for some very entertaining moments. The fact that neither is perfect and both have psychological issues to deal with makes them more approachable characters. The structure of the novel is problematic, however, as significant events in the characters' pasts are hinted at throughout but only fully explained toward the end. Providing the details of these occurrences in a prologue would have provided greater insight in the characters personalities and motivations. All in all, an entertaining read and I hope this proves to be a turning point for the better in the T-FLAC series.

The story had a few holes in it that just left me wondering. I got lost with some of the descriptions and who was who, etc...AJ and Kane had good chemistry, but not great. I liked them, but I didn't love them. This is a good addition to the Wright brothers' stories, but I was left a little disappointed. Obviously, not that much because I would round my rating up to a 4 when forced to choose who stars.

    Good story. Kane Wright, alleged photographer but really a T-FLAC operative is on a mission to assassinate Raazaq. Unfortunately, he has been forced by circumstances and his superiors to include AJ Cooper on his team as the sharpshooter. At the crucial moment she bottles it and the mission goes tit up.From then on AJ is desperate to prove to her idol that she can fufil the mission whereas Kane is even more convinced that he should always work alone.

Working with others just gets them killed.AJ is great, strong, independent and sassy. On occasions I worried that she was going to go off half-cocked and get herself in trouble (a variation on the TSTL heroine) but she never did. Kane never strayed in arseholeness.My only gripe was the (in my opinion) unrealistic sex on a moving camel, I noticed there was an 'odd' sex moment in the last book too - hope she's not going for a new and unusual sex act in each book!

His earlier contempt slides into concern especially now they're working together and must rely on one another to complete their mission.There was a lot of passion and build up between A.J. and Kane but the story moved so fast I got confused during some parts and would have to go back to re-read. This is one instance that I needed the plot of the story to slow down for me to keep up! I felt a little silly.
