**Disclaimer: If you've read this author's SEALs of Honor series, you'll recognize Levi's name, as well as those of his friends and teammates. Levi and his unit were injured in a previous book due to a betrayal by someone they trusted. They have since left the Navy due to their injuries and Levi opened Legendary Security.**

Levi and Ice have been together for years, both professionally and personally, though when Levi was injured, he pushed her away. It's not that he stopped loving her, Ice is th

Feels like you’re coming into the middle of the story. It’s all bit muddled and the bad guys seem to be succeeding way too often if the good guys are supposed to be such a successful team. I hope the next story can build on this one and will feel more cohesive.

Technically this is the first book in a new series by Dale Mayer. However, if you've read her previous SEAL series, then you will recognize the characters from those books. These books are centered on members of the SEAL team that have left the military and are now out on their own with a private security company. And if this book is anything to judge the series by, then there is just as much action now that the men have left the military as there was in the other series! Plus plenty of opportun ...more

Dale Mayer is a genius with her Seals. She knows how to write about her Seals and make you live with them. She draws you in and keeps you living with them. You get so absorbed in the storyline that you do not want to put it down. Plus, you are so wanting to be in the story so that you can help the chara

I was given an ARC of this story in exchange for my honest review.

This was definitely an interesting story. Levi and Ice had a relationship while still in the military, but sort of broke it off over his unwillingness to have a family (he has reasons, but we don't learn about them for a while). But they're still working together, now post-military, in a paramilitary organization that Levi has created. Much of this story revolves around Levi's need to wield revenge against the man, Rodriguez, resp

Levi!!! It's been a long time coming for his story to finally grace this world's presence XD While Heroes for Hire is a series in itself, it's also a spin-off of sorts from the author's SEALs of Honor, which is where I first met Levi. Unlike a lot of the other guys, this story was a little more special to me because Levi's story deals with a girl he's always had. Rather than meeting and falling, he has met her, an

Ms. Mayer has done it again with anther great series involving characters you have come to love. Levi and his team were betrayed and wounded on their last mission, now they have a security firm in the private sector. While they struggle to get back to something normal a new threat has risen and brings the man that betrayed them closer to their vengeance. Ice and Levi are both stubborn, neither of them is taking the jump to push their relationship back to what it was, causing tension and the chan ...more

What a great start to a new series by Dale Mayer, Heroes for Hire. A story of a group of Seal's who are now running a private security firm led by Levi who had been injured after being betrayed by one of their own. He's out for closure now and hunting the man who did this. Ice had been a pilot and involved with Levi, before his injuries they had an argument and after he was all healed she joined him in the start up of the company but not being intimate since the argument.

I expected a good suspense book with enough romance in it, and that’s what I got, and I LOVE it!

This is the first book of a new series called Heroes for Hire. A spin-off of SEALs of Honor I think, as characters in this book were seen in SEALs of Honor series and vice versa. I think I liked this book more than her original SEALs of Honor series. This book felt more fast-paced, and more captivating.

Levi was an alpha male, with regrets, and stubbornness that made me want to slap him. Haha. But I w

Whether you are fairly new to Ms Mayer’s books, like I am, or a long time fan, this is a book you will enjoy.
This is a new series with some of the characters from previous books are in it as well. The series is based around the ex-Seals who have formed of a security company.
The story centers around Levi and Ice, a former Navy pilot and the gal he loves. Both are strong characters inside and out , but also good hearted.
Interaction between them is well written.

This is once again a great work of dale mayer . levis legend is the first book in her new series heroes for hire . The best thing I liked about this book is that dale took care all little details, she not only focused on the plot and storyline but also has put great emphasis on character development.

I really had a great Time reading this book and I am eagerly looking forward to reading the whole series.

I have voluntarily read an arc copy of this book .

Levi's Legend is another amazing book by Dale Mayer. She has done it again. I love the new series and it picks up from the Seal's Series. I love it. I love that Levi and Ice are working together. I love that the injured Seals from the Seals Series have been able to get it together and have a life after injuries and love as well. It is great to be able to see thru their eyes. I am ready for Stone's Surrender and then Merks book. I know they will be just as great.

a slow beginning that set the scene and then wham you are into a story that annoyingly you cant put down....

not a bad story either...about a bunch of marines that come together that have left the service some are retired through disability but still have the skills that levi is looking for....

but where they have settled things are not what they seem...

I was so excited when the author released that she would in fact be doing a spin-off series of the Seals of Honor titled Heroes for Hire. Ever since meeting Levi, Ice, Stone, Merk and Rhodes in Evan's book I immediately fell in love with all of them, and hoped she would write their stories. Levi is the leader of this group of elite retired soldiers who have formed their own business and Ice is love interest. She is a former Navy pilot and by far one of the baddest ladies written and I mean that ...more

This new series differs from the SEALs of Honor series in that these seals have retired and formed a private security firm. These characters are recognizable from past books, but with a story-line that is uniquely theirs. Ice is a strong, yet vulnerable, female character that is more than a match for Alpha male Levi. I enjoyed learning more about these characters in this book that has suspense and twists. I look forward to reading more!

>I am an independent reviewer. This book is the first in the Heroes for Hire series and ends in an HEA. This story revisits Ice and Levi. Instead of coming upon them in their HEA, they are confusingly still close, but no longer intimate. As Ice and Logan decide if their relationship can be salvaged, old rivals come back for revenge and maybe to steal away Ice.

A final chance to fix things…

This is the first book in the Heroes for Hire series with characters carrying over from the SEAL’s of Honor series. You don’t have to have read the prior series but it adds insight into the characters if you have.

A SEAL team was betrayed and many were injured. After healing from their wounds, Levi and his remaining men left government service to set up their own private security company in Texas. He’s determined to extract vengeance against the two men who betrayed t

Very intriguing read. These are trained ex-SEALs, yet they were made to look so incompetent basically throughout the entire book. I didn't expect them to be super perfect soldiers but they didn't really resemble the capable military people they were trained to be, what with Rodriguez and his people always getting the upper hand. It was ridiculous, almost comically so.

Levi's Legend (Hero's For Hire Book 1)

This is the first book in a new series which is a spin off of Seals of Honor, by this author. I was so excited to read this first book which left me panting and waiting for the next ones to be published.

The characters are easily recognized from the previous series but this one continues with their lives in the private sector since Levi and Ice along with other investors have started a security firm.

This is the first exciting action packed book in the Heroes for Hire series and it is an amazing beginning.

So I need to stop saying I am reading a book if I am not going to actually start reading to later. I really started a mere hours ago. Let me backup and say I was given this book for a real and honest review. I had only read one book by Dale Meyer previously. This one mentions some of the same characters from the other series.

I love reading books that bring up other characters from other stories. It almost makes them feel like real men and not just made up people. First off I have go to say that
