Publisher's Summary

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.…

A great listen and it had me hooked at Chapter 1

Typical LL book - brilliant plot as the secret Elite Ops team head another mission that is filled with ex Military/Special Forces hunks (all handsome and buff of course!) as they battle against the evils of this world that no-one else can touch. This has more of a 'mystery and thriller' type theme and I think that is why this has been listed under that category rather than the Romance genre as book 1 was.

However, don't despair as it has lots and lots of hot romance too written by the queen of erotic romance novels and, if you are familiar with her other books, she doesn't disappoint. Micah and Risa's story is hot but it's also very touching, tender and heartbreaking too as she tries to trust again whilst he battles an enemy from his past.

This was published in '09 so I beg Audible to give us the other 4 books in the series - please please please.

Worth a credit? Well it ticked all my boxes and then some - so that would be a YES.

Disappointed....

Would you try another book from Lora Leigh and/or Clarissa Knightly?

Yes, if it is part of the KGI series - this series....NO.


Has Maverick turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not as much as some of the other characters - particularly Jordan. Even though he redeemed himself a bit at the end. Not enough to make me like him. Too murky/gray in his motives. Too cold. He was willing to allow agents to be used and abused for the greater "good." Yikes, he was creepy to me.


Would you listen to another book narrated by Clarissa Knightly?

Yes


What character would you cut from Maverick?

Jordan


Any additional comments?

I was very, very disappointed in this book. While the plot was good - there was too many wasted scenes trying to get to the plot. I don't mind gritty and I don't mind suspense, but I DO NOT like characters that are supposed to be the good guys coming across almost as disgusting as the bad guy. Jordan really turned me off and although he was a secondary character - I found it hard to believe this "team" was a team at all. They mostly came across as cold and dispassionate. As much as I enjoy a good steamy romance - this one was over the top - headed to raunchy. Plus, it came across that the multiple sex scenes were the author's attempt to cover all positions/ways they could do it. It did not always enhance the characters or the story. It just seemed excessively gratuitous. The KGI series is much, much better.
