The last Elite Ops tale is more a pure romance than an action thriller

Elite Ops Commander Captain Jordan "Live Wire Malone knew adding Tehya "Enigma" Talamosi to the unit six years ago was a mistake, but even he failed to predict why. Over the years, he came close to breaking his only rule about watching his squad's back a zillion times for her, but he never did. Now the contract is over and his team returns to normal lives raising families. For him, no way as he will hide behind the legend of Live Wire.

Nine months ago Tehya left the team to open a business. However, someone is leaking top secret information about her, which makes her and any one close to her in peril. Jordan still protects his team even if they disbanded and some already have kids. He arrives to warn Tehya and have her back. However, this time he no longer can resist her lure.

Although there are suspense elements, the last Elite Ops tale is more a pure romance than an action thriller. The story line is fast-paced yet filled with sex scenes and a chance to see how the team members have done since they went civilian. Tehya is a fascinating protagonist, but Live Wire feels different than in previous novels though one can rationalize he is being domesticated on the home front. Although tough love dominates the plot too much and his motive for being relationship phobic extremely weak, fans of the series will appreciate the climax of the leader and the female Elite Ops teammates trying to make it as a civilian couple even if the unit like the Hollow Men of T.S. Eliot go out in a "whimper not a bang."

    Big disappointment

    I was so looking forward to Jordan's story but the storyline was very disappointing. Dragged on and just a rehashing plot. It is as if Miss Leigh didn't write the book since it was not in the same calibre as her other books. Dialogue was minimal with long drawn out scenes that were replayed and rewritten :(

    Where's the Proofreader???

    Story is OK, but I kept getting distracted by the grammatical and typographical errors. Hey, can we learn how to use commas, please? Yikes. I hate to say it, but I think there's too much xxx and not enough meat here! I guess LL is having a hard time transitioning to mainstream from Elloras Cave. A little on the porn side for my taste, and the plot was rather bland.

    Did not satisfy...

    I've waited so long for Jordan's story, feeling very excited that it was finally written...and then became disappointed from beginning to end. There was no story...just a bunch of words written and I don't know if the paper book is the same as my e-book, but this book is fraught with grammatical errors. Such a big letdown...the love scenes left me cold.
