I believe in order to appreciate this book you need to read Dangerous Games, Killer Secrets, Hidden Agenda and Wild Card. I don't go along with most of the reviews. This book was very romantic, touching and thrilling. The love story had me crying in several parts of the book. This is a book I will be reading over and over again.

This book goes great with the other Elite Ops and Navy Seal books. This one was more emotionally charged than the others--sad in a way--but had a great ending. If you read any of the others in this series, you will love this one as well.

This is the second book in the Special Op Series of Lora Leigh. The story was great, the plot was different and good and keep me reading constantly. Micah Sloane is a Special Op and has been assigned to protect and pose as Risa's lover. She has a very nasty past due to a drug lord and her own father. Micah is very loving and caring and brings her out of her shell and forces her to live again. They both end up falling in love with each other, but his duty keeps him at bay. The ending is great. I liked the fact that Noah and Bella's story was continuing on a small level, we know that he is still in the Op's and that she is about ready to give birth. Once again though, the sex is to explicit, I have come to realize this just must be the author. I don't like how detailed the sex scenes are, so I just skip over them, but the plots of the stories are still good.

Now the story did sweep me up and it was a quick read but it left a bad feeling after it. If Risa was my friend I don't know that I wouldn't advise getting away from Micah.Years ago Risa Clay was given, by her father, to a scientist to test a drug that would make women lust after sex. It was to make them better prostitutes. (ICK!) She's not a very beautiful woman and her father told her over and over again that she was ugly. Now she's being hunted and Micah Sloane is determined to keep her safe, and he's very attracted to her.Oh yes, this is one of those stories where the girl overcomes years of image issues by the man buying her clothes and telling her to wear them (dude, feck off, my clothes are my choice, you don't get to dictate, you get to suggest), overcomes rape fairly quickly and doesn't regard telling him to stay out of your bed and him ignoring you as a deal breaker. I'm sorry. He's not a good catch, he's a controling manipulative guy who has an image of her and wants her to be it rather than letting her discover her self. This is not a relationship that is set up for a happy ever after, it's a relationship that would drive a lot of people to more broken.It's not the worst of it's sort but I didn't feel good after it.

Maverick is a story about Micah an agent of the top secreat team who is supposed to look after Risa and also catch a killer. Risa who was kidnapped six years ago still has trouble with self confidence. Another lust and sex filled story.

Ok yes...I'm a sucker for Lora Leigh's Alpha males and I also have a weakness for foreign Alphas so her latest, "Maverick" was like a double-dipped ice cream cone for me. "Maverick" continues her seriously sexy SEAL/Elite Ops series with the story of Micah, code-name...uh, hello? Have you not been paying attention? Maverick.Micah doesn't really exist. That's just the name he took after his supposed death while trying to capture the man who killed his mother and (in his opinion) caused the death of his father. Since that day, he's lived and breathed for revenge against the killer and this is the closest he's gotten. That's good. The bad is...the killer's target this time is a woman Micah has been secretly admiring for several years. She's a survivor of the worst kind of betrayal and torture. Now, Micah's mission is to pose as her lover while protecting her and catching the killer when he tries to strike. Why is this bad? Well, Micah knows he won't be able to keep his hands off her, and pretty soon he's losing his heart to boot. But dead men don't have a future.It's taken Risa eight long years to recover from the horrible trauma of being raped and then used as a drug guinea pig. She's finally psyched herself up to try having sex with a man and her friends have a perfect candidate. As soon as she sets eyes on Micah, she's caught...and a little frightened of the level of passion he arouses in her. But when she learns the whole 'date' is a set-up and a killer is after her, she feels betrayed and afraid once more. Yet somehow Micah makes her feel safe and wanted...at least until this Op is over and then he'll leave...taking her heart with him.Micah is quite the scorcher. I'd sure as heck do him! His 'issues' were ones I could 'see' someone like him having and they were at least reasonable for this story. His devotion to duty and ability to see beyond the surface just added to his sexiness for me. Risa was a bit more complex and harder for me to understand. Her fractured psyche really was what one would expect from someone who had undergone the experiences she had. But her back and forth sometimes irked me...not bad enough to make me dislike her, but enough to make me want to give her a good talking to!The setting was spot on, the action kept the plot moving, and I admit the foreign love words (with translations) were pretty hot too. I enjoyed the growing closeness and connection between the hero and heroine and the quick pace of the relationship was believable by virtue of the close quarters and heightened tensions of the situation. "Maverick" is another winner for me and I'll be pining for Lora Leigh's next book in this series until September 2009 when "Heat Seeker" is scheduled to release. Of course, I'll also buy "Real Men Last All Night" in June 2009 which has a short story related to this series to tide me over.

Micah Sloan and Risa Clay are bound together by their experiences with the same crazed killer, though Risa doesn't know it. This was't as bad as teh first book in the series, the intensity and the silly premises worked better here. The mystery is not interesting, though the grandmother was well drawn - what would you do if your son oversaw the rape of your granddaughter? so her angst was worth exploring. I didn't mind Micah, though didn't find him particularly Israeli or Jewish. I found the descriptions of Risa contradictory, from ugly to plain to pretty - well I guess love makes us all prettier, but he was so in love with her physically that the plain/ugly bit didn't hold up so much. It's not a keeper or a reread for me, but it was an easy enough way to spend a few hours.

f you like lots of sex, this is a good book, the story that went with it was pretty good too. Some authors you read for their stories and others for something else.Risa Clay was kidnapped and raped 8 years before, she is just getting her life back now when she finds out she has been targetted by a hit man. Micah Sloane is to be her bodyguard but she is to be his lover so that the cover will work, with him as her boyfriend.Micah has been after the hit man Orion since he killed his mother, caused his father's death and almost killed him. He was a Mossard agent and is now working for a Special Ops Team and he has come to protect Risa.Falling in love was not part of the plan.
