Review: Maverick by author Lora Leigh

As i mentioned in a previous post i was browsing the book section at Walmart and picked up this book as well and entered the author and name info in my iphone so i could find it at the library. I ended up getting it through my states interloaning library system. In Michigan this would be Mel.org. Check with your local library if you live in another state to see if your state has this. If your library does not have a book you can borrow if from another library using your library card. They send it to your library for you to check out and read. Here you get it for 3 weeks and can renew it if that's now long enough. I use it often.

Getting back to Lora Leigh's book Maverick. Turns out this is one in a series called Elite Ops. You can view the whole list and get more info
Below is a little back cover blurb.


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…

You can read a excerpt here.

The Elite Operations, ELITE OPs was created to fight against that terror. A six man force working independent of government protocol or oversight, created to do what the others can’t do. They have only one directive. Success of the mission. No matter what it takes.

You can go to Lora Leigh's website to find out more about the Elite Ops series and all the players involved in this series. This book is a full action packed book mixed with hot sexy romance. Risa's been through hell and Micah knows all about it and he's drawn to her for some reason. Unfortunately he has to use her to catch a mad man who killed his mother and was pretty much responsible for his fathers death as well. Can they find their way through all the chaos to find love as well?  There are four books in this series which i plan to read. I give this book 5 out of 5 Modokker Book Pick stars. Happy reading!


  1. Great review, Lisa! I've just started her Breeds series and think Lora Leigh is a very talented author!

  2. i ordered the other books in the series from our interloaning system. I love stumbling upon new authors.
