Nobody was happier than I when this book released on Tuesday. I was actually hoping I could download it to my Kindle at midnight on the East Coast not realizing that it wasn't released until 3am because of West Coast time. At least I had Livewire to wake up to. Jordan Malone has been one of my favorite Seals and Elite Ops characters from day one. Yes...he is cocky and brooding, but the man just drips testosterone.
From day one with Tehya Talamosi's introduction into the series, we knew that she and Jordan should end up together. Her comic relief and flirting to his hard-ass attitude are the perfect off-set to one another. The Prologue, Enigma, which was released in December, was a gut-wrenching read for me, as I'm sure it was for many of Elite Ops fans. We saw Tehya and Jordan finally liberating themselves of some long-building sexual frustration before an inevitable but saddening break.
Nine months after Enigma, we find Tehya, now living as Teylor Johnson, has begun to build herself and new life. She has moved to Maryland and purchased a home and a business, trying to keep a low profile. She is also trying to come to terms with the love of her life, Jordan Malone, not caring enough to be with her, or so it seems. Jordan has a belief that " Love is an illusion" and let's everyone around him know it. Arriving one evening at home she is blind-sided by Jordan getting past all her security measures and appearing in her home. At first she believes that Jordan is there for her, but then she quickly comes to her conclusion that he is there because there is trouble.
Evidently Tehya is in danger by some associates of her dead father's criminal entities and Jordan is there to protect her. He wants Tehya to disappear again after 25 years on the run, but she refuses. Tehya is tired of running from life, even if it means an end to her own life.
This book is super hot. I could not put it down. The intimate scenes with Jordan and Tehya are explosive. It was a pleasing end to her Elite Ops series. It included most of the Seals and the Elite Ops members and families. I must admit that I may be biased because I am a die-hard Lora Leigh fan, but I have a feeling that many Lora Leigh and Elite Ops fans will agree that Livewire is a gripping and very erotic read!
