Book 1 of Bad Boys of X-Ops
Action/Adventure Romance, Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance, Multi-cultural/Multi-racial Romance

Spinning off from the two #1 bestselling Amazon series—Carolina Bad Boys and Bad Boys of Retribution MC, headliners in Erotica Humor, Thrillers, and Suspense—come more deliciously dangerous, scandalously sexy stories, a whole new level of hotness starting with Walker.

Explosives are Walker's specialty, but he's never handled anything as combustible as his enemy, Jade Huntington.


Goddammit. All I want to do is blow shit up. Is that too much to ask? But, no. What I get is mission frigging impossible in the middle of a Beirut hotbed. I'm the renegade of Operation T-Zone, but this time I swear I'm gonna do things by the book. That is, until Jade Huntington's involvement in my op causes a brand new snafu.

My tribal name means desperate warrior, and that's exactly what I am for reasons I can't outrun. And Jade? She's personal enemy number one. An incredibly sexy one at that. But she'll never find out just how desperate I am for her.


I'm not an assassin, even though I am badass. I'm a protector. Except when it comes to Walker. What I wouldn't give to bore a bullet through his stubborn skull. We've been at each other's throats for years, this time I'm determined to leave him in the dust after I shoot a few holes in him.

We're forced to work together when Walker practically kidnaps me and my package: the woman I'm guarding, the target he's assigned to take out.

Days on the run. Nights of enforced closeness. Fighting side by side. Ever-present danger ignites a desire I can't control. But the endgame is so perilous Walker and I might not make it out alive.

Is there anything better than a hot-ass bad boy soldier with a good soul? Perfection!!

In a world where his job doesn't exist, blacker than black ops explosives expert Walker happily stays in his no-attachments, emotionless bubble…until he tangles with his adversary, British special ops phenom Jade Huntington. The two of them are on the run with a middle eastern princess, with agents from a dozen countries trying to track them down. Something smells rotten to Walker, and he's determined to get to the bottom of it before the woman he wants and the woman he wants to protect bite the dust.

Oh, Ms. Warren, how you slay me with your fabulous characters and insanely erotic sex scenes! I loved Walker in the Bad Boys of Retribution series (seriously, go get it NOW, along with the Carolina Bad Boys series from which all this deliciousness stems), and was stoked to find out I would get his story next. So welcome to this new spinoff series, Bad Boys of X-Ops! I'm obsessed with Ms. Warren's style of writing…she's so brilliant at capturing that uncensored male POV, whether it be about a woman's tits or their own junk, every line is funny and irreverent and often raunchy as hell. This story was both dark and loving, with killing and earth-shattering sex, bombs and orgasms, covert ops and cunnilingus…every word was just fabulous!!

The covert ops setting was a little different for this group of books, but it was as good as, if not better than, some of the other books I've read in the Bad Boys series, though that's not saying much because I'm a squealing fan girl of all of them! If you're a fan of wicked, smart humor, dirty raunchy sex scenes and a HEA that isn't easy to come by, pick WALKER up and delve right into Ms. Warren's wild wild world of bad boys and the women who love them!

Bottom Line: WALKER is sooooo good, y'all! I recommend enjoying behind a locked door with a bottle of wine and a spare set of batteries!
