B- review at best.
The problem I have with Maverick is that they are portraying Risa (the heroine) as helpless. Yes I understand she went through a terrible ordeal...one I couldn't begin to imagine...but they treat her as if she's a child and in a way she lets them. I'm all for vulnerability - even like it to be present in a good storyline - but it seems in this book LL has made the heroine too wimpy and the hero too alpha, which in my opinion is not a good combo. I'm about 30 pages from being done so I doubt anything will change my opinion. I love Micah (Maverick) and the background he has and his almost insane dedication to his mission and I love the heritage she gave him. I am TOTALLY done with the word "soul" being in every love scene!! and I wish she had made Risa to be a strong woman who came through an unbelievable event, instead of the "I'm so ugly....ooh poor me....you lied to me" persona she gave her.
Book 2 of the Elite Ops series is a real page turner with strong characters and suspenseful plotting. The story line is a continuation of the story arc started in the Tempting Seals series. Be sure to leave yourself sufficient time to finish...

Another good read from this author. Risa was betrayed by the one person who should've protected and cherished her-her own father, yet she shows such strength of character and an amazing determination to survive and be a whole person again, but the real healing begins when Micah comes into the picture, and together they help each other move forward, while trying to stay alive.
This book is AWESOME!!! You have the strong male that is wanting to take care of the women he is in love with and will do anything for her. Very HOT read. I couldn't put this book down. I will be reading more from this author.
This was a good book to read. The main character Risa has not had the easiest time but Micah is good for her. It was a good book. It caught the reader's attention right away.
