Bane (Bad Boys of X-Ops #4) by Rie Warren #mf #review @RieWrites


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.addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16Kim Talks TomesTAG

The Bad Boys of X-Ops Series has been one of my favorites and Bane has not let me down. As the last book in the series, this one focuses on Bane, the most intense and tough guy of the group and Kiki, aka Baby Spy. Some of the X-Ops members believe Baby Spy was the one who leaked Walker’s whereabouts during his mission with Jade. But, Bane doesn’t think so, even when he is ordered to take out the new member of the group.

The attraction between Kiki and Bane was intense, sexy, and exactly what I expected from Ms. Warren. While we got to see them work together, we also got to know about Bane’s past and how similar it is to Kiki’s. So, it is easy to understand his attraction to the badass woman, even though he isn’t sure how much to trust the Baby Spy. The last mission together as the X-ops team was surprising and the way the series wrapped up satisfied this invested reader/fan and I wasn’t as sad to know that it was the end of the series.

If you haven’t read the rest of the series, start with Walker and read all the way through until Bane. I promise, you will not be disappointed!
