I'm dying here, mourning the last of the sinfully sexy Bad Boys of X-Ops series! Thank you, Ms. Warren, for the awesome storyline wrap up!

Griffin Bane despises the woman he's dubbed Baby Spy, Kiki Damage. Except for the fact he wants her, bad. Paired together on an op in Mexico, Bane has no idea what he's going to do about the Kiki kill order he received from the T-Zone higher ups. He doesn't believe she's the one who betrayed the team, and the more he learns about her, the more he's certain tha

As much as I loved this book, finishing it left me devastated because it is the last in this sexy, suspenseful series. Rie Warren knows how to write a story that keeps you reading late into the night.

This story in the Bad Boys of X-Ops takes the uber-secretive T-Zone operatives to Mexico to take down a drugs/guns cartel. The op requires Griffin Bane to team up with Kiki Damage, not-so-affectionately dubbed Baby Spy by the rest of the guys. Everyone believes she compromised an earlier mission, b

I was nervous for this book as it’s the last in this awesome series and the fact I’ve lov3d Bane for a long time. But Rie didn’t disappoint me at all and I soon realised I had nothing to be nervous about.

I don’t know where to start with this so forgive me...... these characters are EVERYTHING especially Bane. Bane oh Bane!!!!! He is sooo HOT!!!! He a broody man, who just wants to keep his head down and get on with his work. He doesn’t try to get atta

Bane is the continuation of the Bad Boys of X-Ops. An off the grid team working together for T-Zone with Blaize leading the way.

Walker, Justice and Storm have had a hate on for Kiki since Walkers op was compromised. They all think that Kiki was the one that give up the intel on Walker to almost get him killed. Bane has always thought there was something about Kiki that he wanted to a bed...naked. When Bane

Bane is the first book that I have read by Rie Warren. It will not be the last one though! I can't wait to read the beginning of this series.
Bane is an alpha male that does his job no matter what it is. He could be fighting, patching up someone, or babysitting someone. To him, a job is a job.
Kiki is blamed for a mission that goes wrong. Now, she's got a new nickname to go with that and everyone wants her eliminated.
Can they survive the web of lies and deceit?

This book was the end of a brilliant series. Bane the gruff take no prisoners guy is brought to his knees by baby spy. Kit is tough and has a black mark on her with the group. Suspicion is rife but Bane sees something in her. A truly great read

This series kept getting better until Storm’s book which I absolutely loved. As the book after Storm’s, I was expecting great things from Bane’s book. Unfortunately, for me, this felt like a tag-on, a desperate collection of loosely connected activities as the series limps to its end.

The romance in this story is again between equals. Kiki (Baby Spy) come into her own in the story and there is something of both Lisbeth Saland

I can’t believe this is the final installment in the Bad Boys of X-Ops and I’ll be honest, I’m not ready to let these guys go. Rie Warren has an incredible talent for writing suspenseful, romantic and steamy novels that keeps me glued to my Kindle. I have waited for Bane and Baby Spy’s story since we were first introduced to this amazing Uber alpha team. When we catch up to this awesome team are in Mexico and their target is the very lethal Mexican Cartel. As I’ve come to know in t

For me, such a bitter sweet review to write. Knowing that this is the last book in the Bad Boys of X-Ops Series makes me a little sad. I have loved each and every book in this series. I have been waiting for Bane's book, and to see the connection with Kiki a.k.a Baby Spy was amazing.

Bane is one of the toughest of the tough. He has the reputation for being a killer without remorse. When the entire team is sent on a mission to take down the drug cartel, Bane is teamed up with Baby Spy, Kike Damage

Bane is the final installment of the Black Ops series. I haven’t loved this series but I didn’t hate it. I think I just loved her other books more. It can be read as a standalone but you will miss out on the other characters events of where they are now and why.

Bane has been assigned with Kiki to complete a mission. Kiki has no idea what she is in store for as she believes this is an in and out easy objective – not the case. Bane knows exactly what is going to go down a

This is the ending to the X-Ops Series but can be read as a stand alone However, as with all the series written by Ms.Warren, the stories are so much deeper when read in conjunction with one another. Bane and Kiki, their chemistry is off the charts. And as to be expected, the sex scenes are hotter than hot and not intended for work by any means. It seems like all the forces that can work against Bane and Kiki are in play here and I love the

This series just gets better and better! I’ve loved every book a little more than the last and this has quickly become one of my favorite series of all times… though I’m super sad it’s over.

Bane is known for being quiet but deadly and usually when he is talking it’s something sarcastic or smart-mouthed. Kiki aka Baby Spy is mostly hated by the group because of an incident in Walker. Bane’s had a hard-on for Kiki from the be

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, suspense, twists & turns, passion, sexual tension, explosive action, and heartbreak.

Before reading this story please read the below books first
Walker (Bad Boys of X-Ops #1)
Justice (Bad Boys of X-Ops #2)
Storm (Bad Boys of X-Ops #3)

This is Kiki and Bane’s story. Bane’s job at the moment is to babysit “baby spy” aka Kiki. Really two missions take down a cartel and watch Kiki. Would be easy if he was not lusting after Kiki but real

Bane and Kiki are a perfect match out of the bedroom as well. It is clear pretty early on that Bane won't follow his secret orders but that leads to a whole different problem. Just like every book in this series we ge

That is what I feel has been conveyed in this story of Bane and Kiki or Baby Spy as everyone calls her.

The big badass and Kiki have been given an op together. What no one else knows is that Bane has been given priority orders ... kill Kiki. What Bane doesn't count on is falling in love with her!

This is the final book in this series and I'm going to miss these four men and their women! Well worth reading!
World Building: The first half of the story takes place in Mexico and the second half takes place in the United States.
Characters: The main characters in this novel are Griffin Bane and Kiki Danger aka Katherine Dillon. Bane has always been dubbed the killer with no morals within the T-Zone organization and has just been tasked with the impossible. His head and heart are in conflict and the closer he gets to Baby Spy aka Kiki, the more lines between professional and personal get blurred. Can he

Bane is a complicated member of the T-Zone team. He takes his targets out with ease, then turns around and patches his teammates up. He also battles serious demons because of where he came from, so he believes that he doesn't deserve happiness. The team is now in Mexico City chasing down the drug trafficking guerrillas to take them out, but Bane has separate orders to take out KiKi Damage, aka Baby Spy. It's believed that she's a traitor to the team after a mission gone wrong. The problem being, ...more

Well, it's true when they say the save the best for last. Because, that's what Rie did with this series. She left Bane for last and man is he my favorite. Bane had everything I was looking for including the whole Bane/Storm drama.

Bane got recruited to T-Zone by boss lady Blaize. He's the quiet killer of the group. Bane is the next up to run the next Op. His next in command is none other then Baby Spy or better yet Kiki. Nobody is happy about this. The guys have had it

The last and possibly the best of the four book series. Bane, like all of the Ops guys, is rhino tough, but there is a heart he tries to hide, a nagging guilt, some serious secrets, and an unmatched fighting ability. This time, he has the op, KiKi, AKA Baby Spy, is his partner. He has another order he can't share with her. He may or may not agree with the whole crew who thinks she is a spy and ratted out an op, almost killing Walker. There is no doubt about one thing—she is volcano hot, and he w ...more

Are you ready for some gun slinging action? This entire series has been jam packed with terrorist, bombs, shooting, fighting and this book is not short of anything. I live that Rie keeps you on your toes wondering what will happen next, how is it going to turn out.

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 th

Bane by Rie Warren was a first on multiple levels for me. It’s my first novel in this series as well as my first by Rie Warren. And even though it says Bane can be read as a standalone, I do feel like maybe having read the rest of the books would have given me a more well-rounded and more complex experience. There were some things I was left wondering about because I haven’t read the first three. Never the less, Bane was an enjoyable read that kept me enjoyed for a couple hours.

This is the last of the four X-Ops series. Each book from a different operative. The journey that started with Walker and his Beirut op to Justice and the rescue of the American ambassador then to Storm going undercover has ended a year later with Bane and T-Zone coming to terms.

Bane is the fourth book in the Bad Boys of X-Ops Series. Although this title could be read as a stand alone, all the previous characters make an appearance in Bane, and readers will definitely get more from this book if they have read the previous installments of this series.

This is Bane and Kiki's story. This pair of operatives are drawn to each other, they have an intense chemistry that jumps off the page. The sex scenes are incredibly hot, but are not the focus of this intriguing m
