Publisher's Summary

Micah Sloane knows almost everything there is to know about Risa Clay, including the vicious betrayal she endured years ago and the distrust she’s harbored ever since. The only way for the Elite Ops agent to uncover an assassin - and banish the ghosts of his own dark past - is to use Risa as bait. But nothing has prepared him for her disarming blend of innocence and sensuality, or for his overwhelming need to protect her.…

Risa has spent six years rebuilding her life. And now, to save it, she must pose as Micah’s lover and draw a killer into the open. It’s a risky plan - especially with a man as powerfully seductive as Micah. But, as their charade becomes reality, Risa realizes the greatest danger may lie in losing her heart forever.…

    Audiobook Addict. It's all about the Listen. Mostly Romance, but I do branch out a bit. Reviews are my honest opinions-popular or not.

    "Special Ops Book 2"

    Another great listen from Lora Leigh and Clarissa Knightly. I am really liking this series, and Maverick is Micah's story and takes place during a mission following Nathan/Noah's story from Wild Card, Book 1. This is another example of a great story with all the heat you expect from LL's writing. You also get a little better acquainted with the other members of the team and updated info on Noah. I hope these all come to Audible.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    Story
    "Intense"

    Intense is how I describe this book, starting with page 1. There is a lot of pain, death, drama, and even rape in this book. It's got a lot more darkness than light and I think it's only fair to know that going in. The views of the killer, hero, heroine, and one or two random elite ops guys are all given. Yet Lora Leigh does an excellent job in not confusing me with who's speaking and why. I am a big fan of military romantic suspense, and this one had me flipping pages as fast as possible.

    I had read some of Risa's backstory (Hidden Agendas- a tempting SEALs book) and that knowledge of her father's betrayal made me even more invested in this story. The character Micah was truly inspired, and I couldn't help but fall in love with and feel broken hearted for both him and Risa. So much pain and sadness in both their lives, yet they have the chance for love with each other.

    This book could have been 5 star for me, except that several scenes really irritated me, I felt like there were too many characters running in and out, and the sex scenes got a bit boring for me after a while. Ah but don't misunderstand me- this was a great read (if a bit darker than my usual tastes) and I am glad I bought it.

    "Nearly didn't buy it!!!"
    Would you listen to Maverick again? Why?

    I loved this book when I read it! But I wasn't sure it would be a great listen and I was so wrong. I loved it. A hero that I almost wanted to hate but he got it together in the end, and the ensemble characters that make the story interesting. The thing is I am a huge Lora Leigh fan, I adore her Breeds Series and anything she has penned is worth a read / listen.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Even though I knew the story yes it was an interesting listen


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Wasn't terrible ..... not my favourite narrator but I wasn't put off.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    actually I didn't listen to it in one sitting but I think that is because I had read the book before listening to the audio version.

    "Umm yes please!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this book! It has great back round, great charactors, love story, and of course a bad guy. You will want to read Wild Card first to get more to this story. The 2 books have tied together perfectly! I love stories about a strong man that loves and protects the woman he loves with everything he has.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Maverick?

    The necklace put it all together for me.

    Story
    "Excellent! This is a Great Series"
    Would you listen to Maverick again? Why?

    Absolutely. The story is great and the sex is steamy.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The premise of a special ops unit luring in a killer with a lovable victim...some parts may be a bit unbelievable but it IS fiction.


    What does Clarissa Knightly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoy Clarissa Knightly's work and her accents are spot on, whether New York, Aussie, etc.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Michah's compassion for Risa.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm perplexed by the negative reviews...I loved this ADULT THEMED book.

    "Just Okay"
    Would you try another book from Lora Leigh and/or Clarissa Knightly?

    I listen to a lot of Lora Leigh's books. Will listen to both again.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Okay. Wildcard ending was better.


    Did Clarissa Knightly do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    You could tell the characters apart but Risa in ecstasy was annoying, whiny after a while just wanted her to be done.Other characters were good.


    Did Maverick inspire you to do anything?

    No
