Live Wire - Lora Leigh

Meet Captain Jordan Malone. For years he has been a silent warrior and guardian, operating independent of government protocol or oversight, leading his loyal team of Elite Ops agents to fight terror at all costs. A legend in the field, Jordan’s true identity has remained a mystery even to his own men…until now.

Tehya Talamosi, codename Enigma, is a force to be reckoned with. A woman this striking spells nothing but trouble for Jordan. Armed with killer secrets—and body to die for—she’ll bring Jordan to his knees as they both take on the most deadly mission they have ever faced. Because this time, it’s personal…

Live Wire is the 6th book in Lora Leigh's Elite Ops series.  This was the story I was looking forward to the most.  Jordan who is the leader of the team has always kept to himself.  There has always been an underlying need for Tehya, but he has never acted on it in the 8 years he has known her.  He took her in to the organization and taught her to be part of their team.  She fell in love with him almost on sight, but he has kept her at arms length for her own safety.  Tehya has become an important part of the team, and as the team has begun to disband, she begins to wonder if they will stay close.  She moves to a small town, buys a failing business and a house and starts to LIVE!!  It is a few months before her sixth sense starts to prickle her neck telling her she is being watched.  Through many twists and turns, the team all comes to her aide.  Who is trying to kill her?  What do they want?  Will she ever live a "normal" life?  Will Jordan ever realize that he is what she wants?

Notable Quote:
..."where's your two cents?"  Nik's expression didn't change as he continued to watch the other vehicle and the driver in it.  "Inflation sucks," he drawled.  "The price is a buck fifty now."

This was the book I was most looking forward to and I was so disappointed.  My issues with the book are numerous.  It is hard for me to believe that after 8 years of diligently trying to keep Tehya at bay, Jordan will just take her, then let her go.  The story itself was  good, but it seems that anytime there is a lull in the story, they end up in bed.  For someone that doesn't want to be tied to her, he sure didn't mind it after a while.  I had an issue with being told that we needed to buy the prologue because it was to long for the book, then it was included in the book anyway.  The book is very short, compared to the others in the series and the typos are horrendous.  It seems this story was rushed but it has been over a year since the last Elite Ops book was released.  I sincerely hope this is the last in the series, as I don't know that I will buy another.
