“Damn you, I can’t think of anything but this some days. You’re my weakness, Bailey. And my strength.”

Well hmmm. OKay I would tell you what this story is about but I'm not sure I truly know! To say this book was a little confusing is a understatement, lets put it this way . I felt like I should have been taking notes or had a guide to keep up. I had to go back a few times and try to figure shit out and then I just got kinda pissed about it! I will t
4 stars – Romantic Suspense

I’m a big fan of Leigh’s Elite Ops series and its predecessor Tempting SEALs series, so I’ve been waiting excitedly for this one and had high expectations, and for the most part it delivered, although I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as Wild Card or Maverick.

Heat Seeker is the third book in the Elite Ops series, and although this one could be read as a stand-alone novel, I would recommend reading the previous books (and in order) since there is an ongoing story arc and

I'm going to try to be fair about this, but this had to be one of the most confusing, disappointing, boring, and poorly edited Lora Leigh books of all time. If it weren't for my obsession to find out just who the traitor "Warbucks" was (and what kind of name is that for a bad-guy? I kept imagining "Daddy" Warbucks...), and to read about the hot reunion romance between the H/h (Jonh/Trent and Bailey), I would've ditched this one after a couple of confusing chapters. Whether it was the enormous ca ...more
Opening Line; "It was a world Baily hadn't expected to ever enter again."

Jeez, what a struggle it was to finish this one. I was determined though, despite warnings from other reviewers but also because I was such a fan of Lora Leigh’s previous Elite-Ops/Tempting Seals books. I felt confident that I’d be able to see through the anticipated bad editing and ‘soul’ searing sex scenes, I’d just suspend belief for a couple of days and enjoy another great addition to the series…

i liked this one more than maverick less than wild card. The heroine was stronger than we have seen in this series. not at all the damsel in distress. though she did remind me a little too much of how they originally played out Kira in Killer Secrets.

i am a complete sucker for the scenes al a wild card where the woman realizes this new man is the man she loved years ago. the romance in this one was great. it was there from second one and since our heroine was not only a smart cookie but dealt w

It's funny...the last book in this series, Maverick, I found to be kinda blah while others loved it. And this one I've seen a lot of so-so reviews, but I rather enjoyed it. It wasn't perfect by any means; there was one thing I really hated and another that bugged me, but overall I thought it was a good book. Go figure.

Series note: This is the 4th story in the Elite Ops series, sequel to Leigh's Tempting SEALs series. This series has an overall theme, continuing characters and continuing storylin

I'm happy to report that I finally finished Heat Seeker. Sorry, Lora Leigh lovers, but this was a chore. What to say about it? For one thing, it could easily have been at least 50 pages shorter if she hadn't persistently stated over and over how much Bailey hated the high society life her family and friends engaged in, and how pointless it was, and how she couldn't understand how her wonderful mother could enjoy that life, and, and, and...

I'm not sure if I would give this a 3 1/2 stars or a 4 star rating. It was not one of LL best books, however I did enjoy it. The dead man walking theme is getting a bit old to me. The book had HOT sex scenes however it seemed everytime they had sex, it was the best that they ever had. To me there was one LOVE scene in the book and it was very touching, it brought tears to my eye's. The bad guy in this book was a secret to the end, however I had a feeling who it was from the moment he entered the ...more

As usual, Lora Leigh had me stuck to the couch so I could finish Heat Seeker, third in the exciting Elite Ops series. Lora sure has a way with men!

The thing about the Elite Ops team is that they are all dead. No, this is not a paranormal like her Breeds; its just that all its operatives were thought to have died (which got them away from whatever agency or group they'd been with and kept the bad guys from continuing to try to kill them)and were resurrected into new lives and given new names.

Heat Seeker es el tercer libro de la saga Elite Ops y tiene a Bailey y John como protagonistas.
Tengo que reconocer que la historia del chico australiano del grupo era una de las que mas ganas tenia de leer, no solo porque en las escenas en las que aparecia era muy misterioso sino porque desde que empece esta serie fue uno de los chicos que mas me llamo la atencion.
Este tercer libro es el que mas me ha gustado de la serie por el momento, me parecio que es el que mejor trama tiene, mucho mas entre
The third book in Lora Leigh Elite Ops series. I found this at my library, otherwise I probably would never have read it. It just didn't work for me. Lots of graphic sex but not much else. It needed more in terms of plot.
La noia.
La noia più totale.
La noia più devastante.
La noia più noia che abbia provato negli ultimi mesi.
La noia che mi ha mandato in pappa il cervello appena leggevo una pagina.
Con tutta la buona volontà, dopo tre facciate volevo già cavarmi le palle degli occhi. L'unica cosa che riuscivo a fare era cadere in coma e dormire della grossa.
Se un erotico, un romantic suspense erotico, ti fa addormentare allora c'è qualcosa che non va.

I liked this book much more than I thought I would. Wow. Way to start a review, but honestly this has been a bumpy year for Leigh during which she has turned out a LOT of books and quality has suffered. There. I said it and I am a huge LL fan, but her 2009 books have not been to her usual standards. The lack of editing alone is worth an extended rant (which I'll spare all of us) and this book was the worst with a character flipping back and forth between names in the last few chapters. So when t ...more
3rd in the Elite Ops series. We met Bailey and John in the previous book, Maverick. I was looking forward to reading their story after their introduction.

The book started off well with their back story and a hot love scene. From there, it went a little downhill for me.

I got a bit bored with the story and actually put the book down numerous times and wasn't excited to get back to reading it. Some of it was a little too unbelievable. For example, everyone was aware that Bailey was a former CIA age

Yowza - this is one HAWT author! Her love scenes are NOT for the faint of heart. But I LOVED this book. The plot twists are twisted - the villains are evil in a very disturbing way - but the greater the evil the greater the power for good to shine! The better for a hero to be truly heroic.

Bailey SAW her lover Trent die - only to run into a man named John who seems SO familiar she thinks she's losing her mind. Is John Trent? If he is, why did he leave her & break her heart? No word, no nothi
This is the third book in this series I have read. I generally enjoyed it.

Bailey and John, the main characters, are really likeable and it's easy to care about them. I think I liked them even more then those in the previous books. John is probably less tortured hero than the others and it was also okay.

The romance part... Well, in fact there is no romance building in this story at all. Bailey and John fall for each other before the story begins and we met them when they are already in love. In t

This was a pretty good story to continue and interesting series. I will agree with some previous reviews that there was a bit of plot sampling from previous in the series, but that's what all authors do to bring in chains. Also there were a lot of "coincidences" but i have a feeling those were intended to show that in covert agencies things are almost always linked in one way or another, which i don't find so hard to believe. I too was a little confused as to why Bailey was calling her friend Ma ...more

Bueno el libro no me atrapo tanto como pense que lo haría quiza sea porque esperaba mas historia ya que habia mas sex que historia en si y eso nunca me convence o era todo ese comportamiento que tenía que tener Bayley para atrapar a los malos y Jhon era lindo luego que salió de ese personaje que utilizaba para cubrirse a si mismo por la misión.

The premis of this group of guys is that they are all supposed to be dead. Then their group leader has taken them in, they've had some plastic surgery & they are renamed.

In this book, 2 people with a previous relationship meet up during an op. He reminds her of the man she loved who has been dead going on 5 years. This time, he's not letting her get away.

Hmm. I really like Lora Leigh & this was one of her older books. I got kind of bored & I really didn't like the woman as much as I

OK read - far and away not her best book in this series. As one of the reviewers pointed out almost everyone has an OLD name [from before they joined:], a NEW name [after they joined:], a nickname [at least one:], and a PERSONA name for their current role... I sometimes felt like I needed a score card. And the plot folded so many times I thought it was origami.

Which is not to say it awful - just not the page turner we expect from Lora Leigh. I still buy the next one of course!

If you took the Wild Card premise, changed the character names, take the plot and make it dull, you have this book.
The characters were stereotypically good/evil, at times I was rolling my eyes from the "cheese" factor.
The sex scenes (though hot) were repetitive and it felt like Leigh forced them sometimes to get it going.
I was strongly disappointed in this book, Leigh missed the mark on this one.

I have to say I loved it! Though not as much as Wild Card! Heat Seeker really was a good read and worth waiting for! I was intrigued by John's character in already in Maverick and Bailey was fun! And the ending made me really look forward for Jordan's story! This guy always finds a way to piss me off but I love him all the same!

Heat Seeker is yet another good supplement to the Tempting Seals/Elite Ops series... Waiting for the next on ;)
I love Lora Leigh's book,they are usually SOOOOO HOT!!!
but this book was just too much of a good thing....the sexual parts got to be over done and boring and she certainly needs a new editor!!!
The changing of characters names,sometimes in ONE SENTENCE, was so off putting. I know I am not the only person to ask myself...WHO THE HELL IS JULES?????. Not one of her best....
Too much suspense not enough romance, too much sex and not enough romance, and not enough of an insight into Bailey and John's past and their love affair. Leigh repeated the same passages several times in this book. With all that said the ending of this book was fantastic, too bad the rest was just okay.

This was a very weak addition to LL's Elite Ops series. You are thrown right into the action without much explanation of background events. Every character has 2 or even 3 alias's and it all becomes confusing. I didn't really connect with any of the characters. I'm hoping this is a one off disappointment from Ms Leigh.

The leading couple was hot, the bad guys kept me guessing, and the love story was sweet. It did feel overly cheesy. Can’t tell if that was my mood or the book. I plan to keep with the series. 3/5
