The Shaughnessey Accord is the second story in a series about 5 special operatives called The Smithson Group - SG5. The story stands alone, but it was such a good read that it made me rush to order the rest of them! This is a super fast-paced story, a hot erotic romance and edgy crime thriller all wrapped in one. Tripp Shaughnessey is attracted to Glory Brighton, the woman who runs the sandwich shop he has under surveillance, and Glory just about hits meltdown point every time she sees Tripp. The sexual tension between these two is electric! They are just getting to grips with each other (you might need a fan at this point, it is waaaay hot) when the building is put under siege. The increasing danger ratchets up the tension as well as the pace of the unfolding romance.
Alison Kent is a mistress of erotic romance with a great reputation for hot reads, but her SG5 series is something else. Read the book when you need to be to totally distracted - but don't expect to be able to put it down until you get to the end.

HASH(0x8eacf480) out of 5 stars Terrific, but... 28 Dec. 2004
By C. Cox - Published on
Format: Paperback
I love Alison Kent and she writes the best loves scenes bar none. And she writes great characters as well. Tripp was..well, a trip. The Shaughnessey Accord is lively, clever, suspenseful, sexy and fun, but when I say it's too short, I don't just mean I want more. (which I do) It is novella length which means when it comes in an oversized book it looks really thin. And quite a bit of that is previews at the end. The story was great but it just kind of...stopped. There seemed to be much more here that needed to be told. I doubt it will be rehashed in upcoming books. And the biggest complaint is that at 7.99 I really don't see the value I'm accustomed too. I expect a thick meaty book for that price and this, I'm sorry to say, was just overpriced. It still gets 4 stars because I love what's there... just be warned.

HASH(0x8ecefb40) out of 5 stars The Shaughnessey Accord 14 Dec. 2004
By Steph B. - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the second episode in Alison Kent's tantalizing 5 part series. In THE SHAUGHNESSEY ACCORD, we meet Tripp Shaughnessey, the quirky jokester of SG-5.

Tripp is positioned in Manhattan, on a 24 hour watch of the supposed efforts of a diamond merchant's unlawful commerce with none other than the enemy Spectra IT. His stakeout spot -- the corner sandwich shop that the SG-5 men frequent for lunch. The owner of the shop, Glory Brighton, has had Tripp's attention for awhile, and he doesn't understand what it is about her that makes him weak in the knees. From his station he has complete surveillance of the ins and outs of the shop, hoping to nail the crooks as they attempt to do their dirty work.

The minute he decides to take a break, and works up the nerve to go and see Glory, disaster strikes. Good guy, right place, wrong time. While he flirts and gets to know her in ways that make the both of them hotter than a tea kettle, the criminals that he is supposed to be keeping a watchful eye on, sneak their way in through the front and hold all the customers and employees hostage.

Unbeknownst to the criminals for the latter part of their malevolence, Tripp manages to keep Glory and himself secure for some time and send out a code to the men of SG-5. But their refuge is quickly stripped away when, Danh Vuong, the chief of the crime committing thugs, discovers them and binds them up, making sure that their plans flow accordingly.

Through this ordeal, Tripp and Glory get to know each other better, thus resulting in an action packed love story.

Though I feel Tripp and Glory's love story wasn't fleshed out as much as I would have liked it to be. I still enjoyed the book, and am anxiously awaiting my third installment to come in - The Samms Agenda. This series just keeps getting better and better.

HASH(0x8ee2319c) out of 5 stars A humorous erotic romantic suspense 3 Dec. 2004
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Paperback
In Manhattan Tripp Shaughnessey of the Smithson Group is bored and a bit envious that his friend and fellow member of the elite five, Christian Bane, has had success with covert operations against Spectra (see THE BANE AFFAIR - I will). Perhaps the only thing he is enjoying at the moment is flirting with Glory Brighton, owner of a sandwich shop.

While Tripp obtains a delicious kiss from the restaurateur, Danh Vuong leads other thugs on a raid of the sandwich shop. His boss believes that Glory has something he needs in his war with Spectra. The police arrive before Danh and associates finish their assault. They take hostages, but had not reckoned that Tripp, an alleged engineer, turns into a super operative, which is what he is for the mysterious Smithson Group. Tripp vows no one will harm Glory, the woman he loves.

THE SHAUNESSEY ACCORD is a humorous erotic romantic suspense novel that grips readers whether the lead couple are going at it or battling bad guys. Somewhat tongue in cheek (literally and figuratively), Tripp is a delightfully dangerous man including to his enemies and to his beloved; his kisses stir the all-American wisecracking heroine. Fans of the Die Hard movies will shout Brava to Alison Kent for a fabulous Smithson tale and look forward to the next novel in the series.

HASH(0x8eb19b7c) out of 5 stars Another Hot Agent to Love 13 Dec. 2004
By Judy - Published on
Format: Paperback
Alison Kent brings another hot and exciting story in The Shaughnessey Accord.

SG-5 Agent Tripp Shaughnessey is a man all women love and the bad guys fear. He has had the hots for sandwich shop owner Glory Brighton for months now. He comes across her in her storeroom and makes his move.

Glory Brighton hasn't had the best of luck with men. She has lusted after the funny and sexy engineer from the offices above her store. Just as Glory decides to tempt Tripp all hell breaks out in her store.

Tripp, Glory finds out is more then what he appears to be on the surface. She must put her trust in him to survive.

Once they believe the danger is over, Glory and Tripp fulfill their desires. Glory and Tripp are a perfect match of wit and chemistry.

Looking forward to the next book in this steamy series.

HASH(0x8eb19a74) out of 5 stars Another Great Episode OF The SG-5 Files!!! 1 Nov. 2004
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on
Format: Paperback
My only complaint...The story was too short!!! Tripp was a great character and I would have liked to see him and his relationship with Glory more fleshed out...still this was a great amazing read that you won't want to miss.

Glory owns and runs her own sandwich store. The fact that she has the worlds worst record with men, and the fact that her parents worry about this keep her from being over the trees happy. That and the fact that Tripp Shaughnessey has set her on fire with no chance of having that fire extinguished anytime soon doesn't help. At least that's what it looks until he shows up in her storeroom and lays a kiss on her nearly takes the roof off. Then everything comes apart, and her store is being held hostage, and Glory finds out that Tripp may be a little more then he seems.

This was a great read. The chemistry between Tripp and Glory is beyond hot, and Ms. Kent manages to package a lot into a little bit. This is a great edition to her new series and I look forward to the next. I only hope that it's more then 117 pages long.
