Review of Bane (Bad Boys of X-Ops #4) by Rie Warren


Who can tease better?


Genre:  Military Romance, Suspense, Erotica

Book Length (Est.): 221 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:

The highly anticipated final book in the bestselling Bad Boys of X-Ops series is here!

High stakes.
Low margins.
And everyone wants the woman I’m teamed up with dead.

Swagger, strut, snarl. Three things I can do with both eyes closed. Oh, and shoot the shit out of tangos. I always do my job, whether it’s patching up a fellow operative or taking down a serious threat. Apparently this time my job is to babysit Baby Spy.

We’ve followed the Los Reyes de Guerra cartel to the drug-trafficking capital, Mexico City. Our orders? Get in with the guerrillas and ultimately take them down. There’s only one problem—I have another set of mission directives linked to Kiki AKA Baby Spy.

Should be easy enough. Except it seems I’ve developed an unhealthy attraction to Kiki, along with an inconvenient conscience. She’s a wild woman with an unforgiving attitude that definitely makes me bone hard for her.

Nothing is as it appears, least of all Kiki Damage.

Yeah. They call me Baby Spy. I’m fully aware the entire T-Zone team blames me for narking out a previous mission gone wrong. So, I can’t understand why the powers that be assigned me to this op. Or maybe I can, which just makes my situation even more dire.

I know Bane wants me, but I’m beginning to think he has an ulterior motive for keeping me close. And it’s not just the panty-melting hot sex with the big, gruff, silent killer. There’s something incredibly vulnerable in the way Bane watches me, like he’s looking for one last saving grace.

None of that matters now. When the situation heats up, I find out Bane’s real mission. I may have fallen in love with him, but it’s already too late. This entire web of lies goes a lot higher than any of us ever imagined, and my neck is only the first one on the line.

Bane includes a special series epilogue from the badass women: Jade, Tilly, Blaize, and Kiki.

Jennifer’s Review: 

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

Bane’s special mission puts him in a very conflicting spot and because of that he’ll need to dig a little deeper to find out the why before he even contemplates completing his assignment. With the stakes rising on their joint mission he won’t have to dig far.

Kiki “aka Baby Spy” is a handful. She loves teasing Bane to the point I almost hurt for him. But she’ll risk losing at her own game once he decides he’s through with her pleasurable torture and ready to lead the games instead of being played by them.

Blaize is her bossy self and thankfully she is, because their mission is FUBAR. With all the team members working together against more than they ever expected there is definitely no limits on the action. They’ll divide and conquer.

Bane wraps up the Bad Boys of X-Ops series with a bang! Everything I wondered about throughout the series is learned and the bonus epilogues from the women’s points of view was like putting a pretty bow on the already nicely wrapped box.

I have to admit I was a little disappointed with this one. It does wrap up the series quite nicely, but the story itself didn’t fully pull me into it’s grasp. There were parts that were narrative and described something that had happened instead of describing as it was happening. It doesn’t happen that often, but for such a quick read it sure seemed as if it did.

My Favorite Moment: The Christmas Party is pretty hilarious. From the gag gifts to the ones people actually thought out, each was perfect for the one who opened it.
