Review of Walker (Bad Boys of X-Ops #1) by Rie Warren

Walker

Talk About Some Sexual Tension

 

Genre: Military Romance, Suspense

Book Length (Est.): 293 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Spinning off from the two #1 bestselling Amazon series—Carolina Bad Boys and Bad Boys of Retribution MC, headliners in Erotica Humor, Thrillers, and Suspense—come more deliciously dangerous, scandalously sexy stories, a whole new level of hotness starting with Walker.

Explosives are Walker’s specialty, but he’s never handled anything as combustible as his enemy, Jade Huntington.

WALKER
Goddammit. All I want to do is blow shit up. Is that too much to ask? But, no. What I get is mission frigging impossible in the middle of a Beirut hotbed. I’m the renegade of Operation T-Zone, but this time I swear I’m gonna do things by the book. That is, until Jade Huntington’s involvement in my op causes a brand new snafu.

My tribal name means desperate warrior, and that’s exactly what I am for reasons I can’t outrun. And Jade? She’s personal enemy number one. An incredibly sexy one at that. But she’ll never find out just how desperate I am for her.

JADE
I’m not an assassin, even though I am badass. I’m a protector. Except when it comes to Walker. What I wouldn’t give to bore a bullet through his stubborn skull. We’ve been at each other’s throats for years, this time I’m determined to leave him in the dust after I shoot a few holes in him.

We’re forced to work together when Walker practically kidnaps me and my package: the woman I’m guarding, the target he’s assigned to take out.

Days on the run. Nights of enforced closeness. Fighting side by side. Ever-present danger ignites a desire I can’t control. But the endgame is so perilous Walker and I might not make it out alive.

Four X-Ops alpha men. Four feisty wicked women. Four books you’ll want to sink your teeth into. Bad Boys of X-Ops.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Rie definitely knows how to write bad boys!

I started with Carolina Bad Boys, moved onto Bad Boys of Retribution MC, and now Rie has outdone herself again with Bad Boys of X-Ops. I love how the characters I’ve come to love in previous books always make little appearances here and there.

Walker is one badass who likes to makes things go boom. He’s an explosives expert, which is what lands him front and center on his latest op. An op that doesn’t exactly go as planned, and causes all hell to break loose.

Jade is Walker’s equal in so many ways. She’s lethal, passionate, and determined, not to mention a little headstrong and smart-mouthed.

“Kiss me goodnight and shut up.”

They’ve fought on different sides and against each other several times before, but nothing like this time. This time they’ll be forced to work together, even if it is for different reasons. In Walker fights will be fought, knives will be thrown, and things will definitely go boom. It’s full of action, sexual tension, and fierce passion with a little heart thrown in.

And where Justice is when this book ends…I cannot wait to read his story.

My Favorite Moment: Fuck or Fight. It was a simple ultimatum. The results had me glued to the pages!

My Favorite Laughable Moment: Nothing like a little helicopter ingenuity.

“Autopilot?”

“Jerry-rigged autopilot.” His smug smile did not put me at ease.

“I do not want to know.”

“Probably not, but it involves a selfie stick and duct tape and –“

“La la la…I can’t hear you.”

Excerpt:

I relaxed my stance, lounging slightly back. “You know what I like to do when I need to expel some energy, Jade?” Her name came out buttery soft with a slight dare.

My eyes lowered to the dangerous curves of her body and the atmosphere shifted again, compelling me closer to her sensual heat.

Her gaze widened, the green of her irises drowning in darker depths.

“What?” she asked, breathless and not backing down.

“Fuck or fight. So what’s it gonna be?”

“Fight,” she declared.

I loped forward to the center of the room. “Here’s the deal, if I win, we fuck.”

“If I win, you’re dead.” She flashed a challenging grin at me, getting into combat stance.

“Bring it.” I curled my fingers in her direction.

I usually didn’t hit chicks, but the truth was I couldn’t wait to get physical with thia woman anyway I could.

We stalked briefly around one another, balancing on the balls of our bare feet, lunging and snaking away before any strikes landed on flesh.

The heat in the room multiplied by a million degrees when Jade whipped off her hoodie, revealing a tight black tank top that showed off the sleek sinews of her arms and shoulders.

My low wolf whistle seemed to really set her off.

Surprise.

With a high shriek, she leaped across the air. Coming down, she planted her heel in my solar plexus. Before I could recoil her hand captured my braid, and she cuffed me across the face.

I thrust her away with my knee at her chest so she stumbled a few steps.

“Nice move.” I swiped the blood from my mouth.

“I learned it from watching you. You fight like a girl.”

“And you got a big mouth. Hope you can back it up.”

Jade grunted, pouncing forward. I ducked the blow she aimed at my ribs then rose behind her. Cinching her wrists in my fist, I held her hands immobile at the base of her spine.

I pulled her against me. Sweat drizzled between my chest and her back. The muscles in my arms and shoulders bunched with restraint.

Her ass moved almost imperceptibly against my steel-hard cock, and she gasped before growling.

Squeezing her fingers together into a tight funnel, she cranked her head back against my throat. She slipped free while I bent over, taking in deep draws of O2.

Whirling on me, Jade bit out, “Come on, baby. Hit me. You’re the one who suggested a fight.”

“Actually, I was angling for a fuck.” I reeled away from her incoming roundhouse kick before she made contact. “But what can I say? Lady’s choice.”

“Then you actually have to fight me to get it.” Her tits rose and fell with the harsh breaths in and out of her lungs. “Your rules.”

I growled and lowered down on my haunches, prowling in a circle around her. “That what it takes to get you going, Jade?”

“You don’t have what it takes.”
