An exciting romantic suspense that will keep you glued to the pages! Taken from my review at RomanceJunkies.com: It is Christmastime and Jack Emery is preparing a feast for his comrades in BOLO, a group of men emotionally tied to the Sisterhood who seek their own kind of vigilante justice. With their high connections, unlimited funds and state-of the art equipment, they work under the radar and have little problem with their own brand of retribution. Meanwhile, Jack’s wife, Niki, an attorney with her own firm, is traveling to a funeral after the death of a client’s young daughter, who had been on a new drug. Niki is handling a class-action lawsuit against Andover Pharmaceuticals, who are manufacturing a drug which is supposed to save the lives of children with leukemia, like the young girl who just died. Instead, it seems to be hastening their deaths. However, the owners of Andover Pharmaceuticals are wealthy and well-connected, so Niki is having a problem with finding justice for the victims and she is beginning to lose hope. Jack and his fellow vigilantes have just completed a mission against some corrupt slumlords. Now, with Niki out of state, Jack and his crew are ready to take on a new mission against Andover Pharmaceuticals. As they set out to provide the Andovers with their own taste of medicine, Bolo is under time constraints. Niki is making her way home and the mission must be completed before she discovers their involvement in it. Will the members of BOLO be able to do what Niki has been unable to do so far and provide justice for the victims of the unscrupulous, greedy pharmaceutical company, or will they be caught in their own trap? Suspense-filled, TAKE DOWN, the third part of author Fern Michaels’ THE MEN OF THE SISTERHOOD serial, is an exciting, edge-of-your-seat romantic suspense that will keep you enthralled. The men and the women of the Sisterhood are still working out their personal differences at being separated so much, but right now they have to concentrate on stopping the company that is killing off children with their new drug. What better time to do it than right at Christmas. With glitches, such as the bad weather, thrown in, Jack and his crew must stay on their toes as they battle a powerful foe. Complex, well-drawn characters, a captivating plot, unscrupulous villains that you can’t help hating, plenty of action and escalating suspense, combined with a bit of romance, make this story an absolute delight. After reading all three parts of this serial, I hated to see it end. I really enjoyed the entire serial and can’t wait to see what Ms. Michaels comes up with next. This story is not a standalone. For all the dynamics and backstory behind BOLO, readers need to first read UPSIDE DOWN and COUNTDOWN, in that order, before reading TAKE DOWN since it is a continuing saga.

In this book, the third in her new series about the men or significant others in the lives of the well-known sisterhood vigilantes, the men go after a big pharma company who have developed a drug for combat leukemia that has resulted in several deaths. It is no coincidence that this is the same company that hack’s wife Nikki and her law firm are going after with a class action suit. How the guys decide to go after the company and put them out of business while still helping the victims of the bad drug makes for an interesting, if somewhat unbelievable tale. However, the reader of this book is probably used to this, as the actions resemble those of the sisterhood vigilantes. One thing I never will fully understand is why they insist on so much privacy from their significant other halfs, as these same women did much the same and the men mostly knew about their actions. However, they insist on secrecy. Only one woman, Maggie, the Post editor, had joined their ranks. I thought it very interesting that the significant other of the make-up sisterhood member who used to somehow miraculously transform the sisterhood members in new, unrecognizable persons, also took on this job for the guys. This book is better than the second in the series, which is even better than the first (which I really did not even like). However, the storyline and their antics defy belief—just like those of the sisterhood did in that series. If you are looking for a book that joins fantasy elements with a somewhat clouded reality then this is the book for you—or if you want to continue to read about sisterhood types adventures. As I said, this book is better than the other two, and it is starting to look like Fern Michaels has gotten her sisterhood type groove back, though, like the sisterhood series, they provide escape from life’s reality. Sometimes, this is just what I need after sloughing through the many books about great escapades. I received this from NetGalley to read and review.

    Take Down is number 3 in the "Men of the Sisterhood) series and it's another quick but short read.

Jack and the guys have taken it upon themselves to take up this mission around Christmas because Nikki is losing hope that her firm can win but they don't want to sisters to know. The plot was interesting and there's some funny parts with Jack's dog, Cyrus and funnier parts with Maggie doling out the punishments. Very enjoyable but it seems the guys are not as thorough planning their missions as the Sisters and needed some help from Maggie.

    Read this and the second book in the series, Countdown, which for some reason is not on goodreads, and was again a little disappointed. Th e three books could have been one, or gone into a lot more detail like the sisterhood series. There was just something missing and d I think it was the idea that they could be caught. It was over too quick.

    A fine finish to this short (3 novella) story. I loved every word! I wonder if the author is taking the Sisterhood in a new direction? If you love the Sisterhood novels, you will love the Guys of the Sisterhood, too!

    A definite page turner! Jack and his "colleagues" find their own way to ensure justice and revenge in a world that sometimes caters to money and big businesses rather than protecting the innocent children who need it most.

    Not the best. I don't like it when they take 3 short stories and divide it into 3 books. This could have been one book as it should have been. Then inbetween they would put exerpts of the Sisterhood series got very confusing and I had trouble finding the continuation of the Men of the Sisterhood Series. It ruined it for me.

    Take Down Another great book in this series by Fern Michaels and the men of the sisterhood. The men have decided to help Nicki with a company who produced a medicine to supposedly cure lukemia in children only to have too many kids die from taking this medication.

Book two in The Men of the Sisterhood takes off where Upside Down, book one, left off as Maggie, her sisters and Annie and Myra gather to discuss what their men might be up to. When the relationships between Nikki, Isabel, and Alexis and their men, the three women become upset and leave. The men have begun planning their take down of Tyler & Fiona Sandford as well as property manager Lionel Marks. Everyone, including Snowden for clean up, are in place just waiting for the right moment. They have also begun to help the residents of South East district Tenements habitable. Then it is time to teach the Sandfords and Marks that Karma can bite you in the butt. This is the second book in a three book series. It has a cliff hanger and cannot be read as a standalone. The great news is you won't care; because you will be picking up book three Take Down as soon as you finish Countdown. This series is written so well you want to find a quiet corner to savor the books undisturbed. The books are done in true Fern Michaels style with strong characters and a storyline that will grab and hold you. I have enjoyed reading about the men of the women of the sisterhood and hope Ms. Michaels has plans for future books featuring them and their other cases at BOLO. I would like to buy them as one story so can enjoy them all at one time, but if not I will purchase them as serials if that is how they come. Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J...

Christmastime is here, and justice is the gift that keeps on giving for the Sisterhood and their men. Success is sweet, but for the Sisterhood and their allies; it’s also short-lived. Now that they’ve persuaded some heartless slum landlords to pay very dearly for their crimes, they are ready for another mission. Jack Emery prepares a Christmas feast at his house and the gang gathers to provide one of their own with a yuletide miracle. Nikki, Jack’s wife is stuck in an airport stranded due to snowstorms. His holiday is not the same without her present. Nikki is an attorney, who has been handling class-action lawsuits filed by the victims of Andover Pharmaceuticals. Their new leukemia drug was supposed to save children’s lives, but it actually has destroyed them. She is distressed over fighting the battle with Andover; they are battling the suit with all their immense wealth and power. Jack and his crew have decided to give Andover a taste of its own medicine, and show them that messing with the Sisterhood’s other half has all kinds of unpleasant side effects… Everyone works so well together bringing justice to the families who are suffered so much from the tragedy of loosing someone they loved. All of this comes about without Nikki and her friend finding out who influenced this surprising turn around from the defense. These books are quick and fun reads. I enjoy them as much as I do reading about The Sisterhood adventures. I believe everyone needs a little story of someone helping out the down and out and bringing justice to the wealthy who care so little about them. I am looking forward to reading the next one in this series.

    With respect to the other two books in this series, I have to say that this one was the best of the bunch. I think this series might have been better served if it was put into a sort of bind-up that publishers do when sticking all stories into one book. I think this would have made a lot more sense that way. I know that since I was not familiar with the Sisterhood series, of which this is a spin-off, I had a heck of a time getting up to speed with everything in the beginning.

I know that since I was not familiar with the Sisterhood series, of which this is a spin-off, I had a heck of a time getting up to speed with everything in the beginning. I like how book two and three focused more on Jack Emery and how he was taking charge of this new business and what he was putting into place to help his wife (and the wives of a few other Men of the Sisterhood) get a couple of the court cases they were working on to come to a good conclusion. This series reminds me of the show Leverage where a group of people come in and pretty much force the bad guys to do good even when they don't want to. Book three made up for the slowness of books one and two and I found myself really looking forward to what the outcome would be. Was I the only one that kept seeing Aaron Hotchner from Criminal Minds as Jack Emery? In my mind that is who I visualized when reading this series. This was a fun ride even with the slow places in the plot. 4 Stars. I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) from NetGalley in return for an honest review. I thank the publisher, author and NetGalley for allowing me to read this title

The Men of the Sisterhood decide that they need to step in and make sure that the case is settled and that all the families get closure. I love the dog in this series- he provides a more empathetic feel to the book- that the men have that softer side- and the work is purely their way of putting the world to rights.

    Two missions for Justice! The Men are reaching their strides. This time they take on two causes – a bonus for this book. Please note this is the third part of The Men of the Sisterhood series. Well written and fast paced. Justice is achieved at any cost – Take Down seems a bit soft in how the men met out well deserved punishments. Each of the parts is truly a segment of one book broken into three parts. You will absolutely want to have all three books next to you because none could stand alone. H Two missions for Justice!

    This is a great take off from the Sisterhood series that allows their men to shine. In this book, the men take on a horrible drug company that sells their medications knowing that they kill children. The men cannot allow that to stand and craft a "solution" that will help those injured. They are as creative and crafty as their women. An entertaining novel that allows us to see good triumph over evil. I would recommend this book to all Fern Micheals' fans.

    This is the third and final book of the Men of the Sisterhood. In this book, the group take down the Andover family who are fighting the class action lawsuit that Nikki filed against them in regard to a drug. Causing problems for the group is the weather - heavy snow - which changes the time table for all the action. It was a quick easy read.

    I like other series by Fern Michaels, but I'm not overly fond of this series. In 94 pages, the characters are able to hatch a plot, coordinate efforts, and bring some bad guys to justice--within a 2-4 day span if I remember correctly. It all seems a bit too contrived for me. (I'm all for escapism fiction, but there has to be a better sense of plausibility for me to enjoy it.) I like other series by Fern Michaels, but I'm not overly fond of this series.
