Micah Sloane knows almost everything there is to know about Risa Clay, including the vicious betrayal she endured years ago and the distrust she's harbored ever since. The only way for the Elite Ops agent to uncover an assassin-and banish the ghosts of his own dark past-is to use Risa as bait. But nothing has prepared him for her disarming blend of innocence and sensuality, or for his overwhelming need to protect her.

Risa has spent six years rebuilding her life. And now, to save it, she must pose as Micah's lover and draw a killer into the open. It's a risky plan-especially with a man as powerfully seductive as Micah. But, as their charade becomes reality, Risa realizes the greatest danger may lie in losing her heart forever.

Maverick is an Elite Ops novel from Lora Leigh.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Addition To The Elite-Ops Series Book #2 in the elite-ops series is all about Micah Sloane AKA `Maverick' and he is awesome! Sexy, exotic, lethal and loving. Just the type of man we all dream about, what a welcome addition to this saga. Lora Leigh weaves yet another great tale of testosterone and steamy love here. Although on the darker side MAVERICK is still a beautiful love story about the strength to carry on in the face of adversity and the ability to heal with the right person. Risa Clay has spent years trying to rebuild her life. Trying to get over not only the betrayal by her father but a brutal rape and her subsequent time spent in a psychiatric hospital where the very man that raped her pumped her full of experimental drugs to keep her quiet. After being rescued by the elite-ops Risa became a virtual recluse. Shy, scared and with little self confidence remaining she is however determined to move forward. To help herself come to terms with her past Risa decides to take a lover. Enter Micah Sloane. Micah, a former Moussad agent known as David Abijah signed his life away to join the elite-ops and for all intensive purposes is now a dead man. He played a role in Risa's rescue years before and has never forgotten her, always admiring her strength and courage to carry on. When he learned of the covert assignment involving Risa he volunteered to be her lover. Risa initially has no idea that her friends have set her up with an agent or that she is in fact the next intended victim of the legendary assassin known as Orion. Now in order to save her life she'll have to cooperate with the elite-ops and allow Micah to pose as her live in lover (what a bummer) to draw out the killer. What the rest of the team doesn't realize is that Micah has reasons of his own for wanting Orion dead and that he will stop at nothing to kill the man responsible for his parents murders even if it means using Risa as the bait in this dangerous game. This is a great story with loads of suspense and of course the smoking hot love scenes we've all come to expect from Lora Leigh. Although perhaps slightly toned down and with more tenderness then other books as Micah attempts to heal the fragile, broken Risa. Their love progresses beautifully as the story unfolds and eventually both must fight their growing affection knowing that once the mission is completed Micah must leave. There's also a huge cast of secondary characters who have been interwoven nicely into this exciting story many of whom you will recognize from WILDCARD or the TEMPTING SEALS series. (It's nice to hear about what they're been up to.) Micah ultimately brings Risa back to life, teaching her to love and even laugh again but he didn't plan on loosing his heart in the process. Will he be able to sacrifice her as the bait to the killer? And will either of them be able to let go once this assignment is over? I can highly recommend MAVERICK but to get the full effect and back story of these fascinating men I would suggest reading WILDCARD or any of the TEMPTING SEALS series first.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty Good Unlike some authors who seem to fade out when writing a series, not so LL. This was another enjoyable read by Lora, even though it wasn't as hot and steamy as some of her other novels. Strong characters, good plot. Even though at times it seems as though everyone sounded a little borderline HQN'ish. I only wish Bailey escaped the interrogation. I would've liked to have seen her as a stronger operative against the "boys". Give them a run for their money! Plus they could've revealed to her that Micah was David - maybe they'll do that in the "Heat Seeker". Looking forward to her next Elite Ops novel ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WARNING THIS BOOK IS HOT! I loved the story line; I thought Micah was perfect with Risa considering her horrific past. This book was your typical Lora Leigh, and I mean that with a “I’m one of her biggest fans” attitude, the male main character fights tooth and nail to not be in love with the female main character, and of course he fails miserably or maybe its happily, he not only saves the girl, but gets a happily ever after with her, well as happy as it gets for these guys. Great story line, suspenseful, steamy, lots of hot men and sexy women. Looking forward to the next one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOT!!!! This is a perfect continuation in the Elite Ops saga. Micah Sloane is a character whose back story I was interested in learning about and Lora Leigh did not disappoint. The past 8 years in Risa's life(the female lead) have been very difficult. But in order to get past it and move on she has to rely on the Elite Ops team to help her find closure. Especially Micah, who is tasked with posing as her lover. They clash at every turn, but come to realize that they must work together to help Risa deal with what happened to her and also to help Micah deal with how it involves him. The story is action-packed and sexually charged and does not let up until the last page....which still leaves you wanting more. This book includes many of the characters from previous novels Elite Ops novels, and shows how they are truly a family, not just a team. I await with bated breath for the next installment in the Elite Ops saga. Lora keep up the good work! Thanks.
