Secret Maneuvers by Jessie Lane

Ex-Op #1   Secret Maneuvers          4.5 Stars

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.

About the Author+ Jessie Lane

The two sisters-in-law share a passionate love of naughty romance, cliff hanging suspense, and out-of-this-world characters that demand your attention, or threaten to slap you around until you do pay attention to them. Because really, it is ALL about the characters. (They're kind of megalomaniacs - but don't tell them that we said that.)

Their third book, Secret Maneuvers, will release in June 2013, and will be the start of a new adult contemporary romance series (Ex Ops Series). They are now working...more

My Review- As part of the authors book tour it was my pleasured to receive and to read this book. After reading-Big Bad Bite (another wonderful book) -I knew that this book would be outstanding also.
  Our main characters were great -and you could feel there energy and passion flow through the book. Both characters had strong personalities but you could feel the depth of there attraction in the book. Strong men and women doing strong jobs to help defend our rights. Also the book had lots of great twist and turns in the plot to keep the story interesting. Bobby and Belle the perfect couple with flaws to keep them human . 
 Cant wait for the next book-this book had great minor characters that would make great he ro for next book!
