Secret Maneuvers (Ex Ops # 1) by Jessie Lane

Some mistakes from the past haunt us forever... unless fate steps in with a second chance.

One 'dear John' letter haunts Bobby Baker's every living moment. It’s the letter he stupidly wrote to his high school sweetheart, Belle, right after he left to join the Army. The letter that he told her that he wasn't so sure if they were ready for forever yet. But before he can let her know that the letter, and his second thoughts, are nothing but a mistake, she up and disappears from the small Georgia town they were both raised in.

Fifteen years later, Belle unknowingly walks back into Bobby's life when her job as an ATF Agent forces her to work with a group of men secretly headed by the CIA to help her track down whoever is involved in funneling black market weapons to a drug cartel in Mexico.

Bobby will use this mission to try and soothe Belle's hurt feelings while proving to her that their love is still meant for forever. He'll use every dirty trick he's learned since he joined the Army to maneuver her back into his life for the long haul. But Belle's not making it easy as she keeps him at arm's length in the hopes that mistakes of her own never come to light.

5/5 Amazing Stars!! For these girls to be fairly new at this writing thing, they definitely write like pros, like they have been doing it their whole lives. This is one of the best books I've read this year and I highly recommend it to anyone. If you are a fan of Lora Leigh, Nora Roberts or Elle Kennedy then you will LOVE this book, or if you've never read anything by those authors I still recommend this book to anyone who loves a romance with hot sex, an intriguing story line, HOT MEN, strong willed women and a little bit of mystery. Secret Maneuvers has a little bit of it all and I can't wait to read more about the other characters in this series.

My heart was about to beat out of my chest after just reading the prologue, like I couldn't breathe. From the very first page I was hooked and there was no looking back. I sat right there until I finished the last page and now I want MORE!! So much happens in this book, so many stories inside one big story. Just writing this review makes me want to read it again. This is the type of book the sticks with you days after you read it, and truth be told, it kind of ruined me for other books for a while. It was just that good, I couldn't get over it. Have you ever read a book that by the end you just feel like WOW, that was the perfect story? No, Yes, well this was it for me. It had just the right mix of everything I look for in a great read. Kudos to you ladies, and I can't wait to see what you have in store for us next!
