I guess I’m just a slut……because I really liked this book. It’s one of the best LL books that I’ve read in quite some time and although the plot is a bit weak….the sex is hot, the dialogue is witty and the sex is hot…..Oh, did I already say that???

This is the final book in LL’s Elite Op Series. Jordan is overseeing the dismantling of his Ops center. He meets Tehya who is the last to leave her underground home…Sparks Fly…..and the sex is hot…..but then they go their separate ways.

Jordan Malone has spent what has felt like a lifetime in the Elite Ops. He has worked closely with his team, in particular Tehya Talamosi for the past six years. Tehya joined the Elite Ops due to her specialized communications skills. Ironically, her father, a white slaver is the enemy, having killed a good friend of Jordan’s and who tortured and killed Theya’s mother. She has worked as Jordan’s personal assistant among other things. Jordan’s SEALs training has taught him never make friends with...more

This was the book we waited for for Leigh to write for Jonas in the Breeds series..... The culmination of watching tough Jordan and Teyha flirt with each other through a series of books comes to an explosion of Love, lust, and power....What an incredible read....I was breathless through the sensual and powerful story, and the sexual sparks flew all threw this book....10 stars

I just didn't know how to rate this book. And its getting to be that way with each LL book I read.

I enjoyed the story. Jordan Malone was the leader of the recently disbanded Elite Ops group one, and let me tell you he's been a sonofabitch in the previous EO books. So it was with relish I encountered his love story, after he's been so anti-settling down with his men. Luckily that didn't stop them, because he needed each one of them and their wives to solve the situation Tehya, his woman, and he f...more

This was such a hit & miss book. Which is not surprising for a Lora Leigh story. Her books hit a lot of extremes on the good/bad scale. I had fairly moderate hopes for this story going in, and that's about all I got.

Series Note:
Sixth book in the "Elite Ops" series, which is a spin-off of the "Tempting SEALs" series. Not sure if you can read this as a stand-alone. It's hard to say, but it would definitely make more sense if you read the whole series.

Summary:
Ever since Jordan Malone came into...more

2.5/5 - Damn, I really wanted to love this book. It might be the curse of anticipating a character's book so much that it could never live up to those expectations. That's what Jordan's book was for me. I've wanted it for ages, and it was a letdown.

The plot read odd to me, not sure if it's because it just wasn't written clearly, or if I just wasn't engaged enough, probably a combination of both. Half the time I was trying to figure out how certain people fit into the plot, and sometimes I was t...more

The sixth and, I think this is the last, of the Elite Ops military-romance series although Leigh does seem to be setting us up for a story between Beauregard and Journey.

The Story
Elite Ops has been disbanded and Tehya has put down roots. She bought a house and a business and she's trying to settle into the small community. Except for that prickling at her neck. She should run. If she wants to live. But, damn it, she's fed up with running. She's going to stay right here and face it. Until she's a...more

Reviewed at Bitten By Paranormal Romance

Unequivocally sensual. The chemistry between Tehya and Jordan sizzles!
I expected the utmost best from Ms. Leigh for this, her last novel in the Elite Ops Series. She delivered and more!

Jordan Malone is the consummate alpha: possessive, protective, dominant. *i want one* We got our first glimpse of him in the Tempting Seals Series.
All during the Elite Ops Series, there was an undercurrent of sexual heat/need/connection between Jordan and Tehya, but it was n...more

Jordan Malone.... What else do I have to say? LOL I've waited so long to read his story!!!!

He is the hard-ass, pain in the ass, commander of the Elite Ops. He's always prided himself of not falling in love, not letting a woman become more important to him than a mission. But we've all seen that throughout the years, he's always had a soft spot for Tehya, fiery redhead, maybe a few years too young for him, but someone who has already been through too much in life, and is now only looking for love...more
Stephanie
really enjoyed this one, think this might be my favorite. Jordan was a true alpha and the sex was hot, hot, hot.

The entire time I have read this series I have been waiting for this book. Jordon, the big boss of the super secret ops department, was so cynical that you just knew when he would fall, he would fight it all the way, but would fall hard.

Tehya, was just the woman to take Jordon down. Having lived a nightmare of her own, she understood the special world that Jordon lived in and even lived in it herself. She knew that she was attracted to Jordon, but also knew he was fighting that same attraction....more

Okay... Lora Leigh obviously has a sexually deprived audience. I know, I know, hate me people! I'm all for a good romance but not at the expense of the plot. And after writing sooo many books I think she's running out of good ideas. I really wanted to like this book, I mean, the man boobies on the front are likeable so...

Alright. To me, the dialog felt stilted and fake. The male protag was a little too over the top for me as to not be believable. The female protag just needed meds to treat a ba...more

Finally! Big boss's story. I love the fact that the whole team of badasses comes together for this one woman they've embraced. Its not overly lovey dovey, these are tough men, dead-men (as the book contantly says), and having them be mushy is just wrong. However, the suble hints, looks, and their persistence to keep Tehya safe is the perfect level of emotion. The problem with this book is all the inconsistencies though out are so bad, its frustrating. I mean, it gets as bad as calling people the...more

Ok. So here's the deal. I read a couple of LL's early books. Liked them enough to read more and then, well, I noticed some repetitious stuff and generally got turned off her books in a major way.

I am not a reader who likes to read a book that I know before hand I probably won't like. I actually only read this book b/c it was a reading group book that was sponsored by the book store. So I felt obligated even though I knew I probably wouldn't enjoy it.

I've been reading this book for what felt like...more

Live Wire is part of the Elite Ops series and I believe it's the last book in the series. I have not read any of the other books in the series. I don't think you necessarily need to read the other books in order to enjoy this one but there was obviously a lot of history between all of these characters. Tehya's been on the run for most of her life until the day, 6 years ago, that Elite Ops helped her take down her father, an infamous and cruel criminal lord. Since then she's become a valuable mem...more

Joradan Malone is a hard bastard and prides himself on that. He also prides himself on having no weaknesses. And to him love is just an illusion. Give into the illusion and love a woman means having a weakness. When he meets Tehya he knows if he allows himself she will be the greatest of weakness. So for the six years she worked for him he never lets his desire for her get the better of him. But he also makes certain that no other man lays a hand on her.

Tehya is 30 years old and has been in love...more

I'm about 1/2 way through the story. Already I've noticed many editing errors. Missing/duplicate words is the most frequent distractor. I hope this is only in the ebook version. I'd hate to think it was forever in print
I am really enjoying catching up with the whole team. It seems like all the characters will be making an appearance, yay!!


Not the best book I've read by Lora Leigh. I really enjoy the Seal/Ops stories but this book felt rushed. Other than what I said above it just felt like I kept...more

Lora Leigh has obviously lost intrest in this series because the last two books were truly awful and the few before that not so good either. Wildcard and Killer Secrets were wonderful and I was so excited for the rest of the series and it has been a big disappointment. It was basically the same story over and over. Bringing all the other characters back in could have made for an awesome book, instead it all felt jilted and with bits and pieces just randomly thrown in. Plus the ending when she br...more

Great wrap up to the Elite Ops series and great introduction to her new Wounded Warrior's series. This book did a very good job of wrapping up all the loose ends from the Seals and Elite series. You get to see or hear about every member from both teams. It was great to finally see Jordan Malone fall and Tehya was the perfect woman to bring him down. Sad to see this series end as I was the Elite Ops when it ended but she has alot of new series coming out and the potential for more based on a few...more

OK, the last of the series (Damn!)! I know it's said that the best is always the last and with this book it can be believed.. You meet Jordan Malone in both the "Tempting Navy Seals" and this series "Elite Ops". You meet Tehya early in this series. All I'm going to say is you HAVE to read this book, hell even if you don't read the series but it would be better if you read the others tho!!

This book is HOT and Smoking!!! ;-)

So sad to give this book such a poor rating. I was looking forward to this couple and even prebought the prologue to get a sneak peek. The book jumps around too much, parts don't make sense and it is hard to follow what is happening. I loved the idea of having everyone back together but it just didn't flow. I love Lora Leigh's books and this series was great, but this book just wasn't up to her past writings.
marlene
Quality over quantity. The editing was atrocious even for a Lora Leigh book. The entire book from character development to story line was sub par.

It is probably nice to put out a new book every other month but at some point you need to tell your contract holders that you need to take some time.
Holly
I wasn't sure I would but I REALLY LOVED THIS BOOK!!!

This one is my second fave of the series, first right after Wild Card!! Jordan has always intrigued me and his story was not a disappointment!! Jordan Malone is one HOT, SEXY ALPHA and I am a little sad to see this series end!
Tamara
Have waited forever for Jordan and Tehya's story and as always LL didn't disappoint. All you have to do is read the dedication and you are hooked. It in itself is a brilliant piece of writting.
Niki
I wish LL would get a better proofreader already. Maybe she should call up Nalini Singh since Nalini's world is much more complicated and yet she never gets any of the details wrong...
Anne OK
Disaster - so many errors you can't keep up with them. Totally taken out of the story. I can't understand why Lora Leigh doesn't get this problem under control.
Kira
You know you are bored with a book when you just scan the last twenty pages because you could care less about the details of the story.

Lora Leigh lives in the rolling hills of Kentucky, often found absorbing the ambience of this peaceful setting. She dreams in bright, vivid images of the characters intent on taking over her writing life, and fights a constant battle to put them on the hard drive of her computer before they can disappear as fast as they appeared. Lora’s family, and her writing life co-exist, if not in harmony, in...more

“Don't worry about hurting me, Jordan." She brushed back her hair again as she turned from him and headed for the bedroom. "It was too late for that a long time ago."
...
"I've heard the lecture," she informed him as she glared back at him. "I've heard you tell your men how love is an illusion, and how they need to watch their backs before that illusion bites him on the ass, so many times it sickens me. Unless you have something original to add to it, then I don't want to hear it again, if you don't mind."
...
"You're fooling yourself." He had to force the words past his lips. "You're letting lust and pleasure betray you. Tehya. It tricks you. When it fades, all you have left is either friendship or enmity. It's the enmity that worries me, the knowledge of all the little ways you can destroy one another with the knowledge you've gained. I don't want us to go that route. I don't want you to hate me."
...
"Who ruined you before I ever had a chance at your heart?”

“Tease?" he groaned. "Ah, baby, I'm not teasing you. I'm giving to you. Giving you every ounce of pleasure I know how to give you."
