Bane (Bad Boys of X-Ops IV) by Rie Warren



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.

You ain’t seen nothing yet.” My grin stretched even wider if possible.

The bad boys of X-Ops are back at it again in this fourth installment of the series. This time the focus is on Bane.


The quiet, sexy-as-hell, killer is ready for his next mission: or so he thought. He is enlisted to kill the woman he is majorly attracted to. Nobody trusts her but he can’t seem to stop her feelings towards her.


Kiki isn’t sure why she is assigned to the X-Ops mission. They would rather have her dead than helping them. Bane seems to be the only one on her side. Sex with the sex god is scorching but there is something more at stake than the mission.


Rie Warren did not disappoint with her final book in the X-Ops series. Danger, suspense, and hot, steamy sex fill this book. We even learn what caused Bane and Storm to hate each other.
I am sad to see this series end but I definitely loved reading it. I absolutely recommend all the books to read!!
