Review: Justice (Bad Boys of X-Ops #2) by Rie Warren

From the world of bad boys of Retribution MC comes a deliciously dangerous, scandalously sexy, four part series!

Fight to win.
Fight to survive.
Fight for love?

Let’s face it. I’ve got a bad rep with the ladies. I’m a rough-talking, smooth-loving, international playboy—yeah right, whatever—and an X-Ops specialist. Sure, I’m hiding a secret or two. Who isn’t? That’s the least of my concerns when I’m called in to lead an infiltrate-and-retrieve mission.

I’ve got my head in the game—the one firmly attached to my shoulders. An American embassy overseas is under siege, and I’m expecting to rescue the ambassador and his daughter, a stereotypical geeky damsel in distress, Matilda Lawless.

Caught in the crossfire between explosive danger and wild desire, I’m in for the shock of my life.

I’m not looking for any man to save me. I’m pretty damn capable of taking care of myself, thank you very much. I have a successful career and was practically born and bred on a gun range, even if I can’t bake a perfect biscuit to save my life like a good southern woman should.

But there’s just something about that hardcore operative called Justice. He’s haunted and lonely, and I know that pain inside and out. It doesn’t hurt one little bit he’s been blessed with more than his fair share of good looks, plus a body that would make any red-blooded woman drool.

Barricaded inside the embassy, under my father’s shrewd eyes, I intend to have Justice no matter how many times he says he’s not good enough. I see the way he watches me. With dirty, sexy, hungry lust.

Fighting is what Justice does. Now I need him to fight for me.

Warning: Graphic sex, graphic action, graphic language. Triple X caution.

I like a good story with action and intrigue. A little shoot them up, bang-bang and I’m good to go. Special Ops and military themed stories, not really my thing. However, this is Rie Warren book and I do love me some Rie Warren so I went ahead and grabbed a copy of Justice.


Kudos to the action and intrigue! It was stimulating enough to keep me happy. The guys make a great Ops team, working together yet still keeping up quick-witted comebacks and razing each other under fire. Ms. Warren has a way with words giving a great picture so as the guys were fighting in and out to the embassy, I could see it all clearly in my head. As for Justice and Tilly, I really liked them. There were a few times I couldn’t stop laughing (Biscuits…snickers!) and their dialog was highly entertaining. We learn Justice’s secrets, which were a bit surprising although since he’s considered a ‘pretty boy’ I shouldn’t be too surprised. Tilly is quite the spitfire all sassy. Her character was probably my favorite in the book. There is one thing that really rubbed me the wrong way. When Justice is trying to work her out of his mind, and has *ahem* relations with other women, Tilly seemed to forgive him a wee bit too easily for my taste.


Aha, I think I know why military-ish stories just don’t do a thing for me. It’s the hopping into the sack at the moments during life or death situations. Yes I get this is fiction, romance heat of the moment and all that. BUT, you are in a safe bunker, underground, and her dad is sleeping just around the corner not to mention so is your team. Maybe having sex isn’t the smartest thing to do. Just saying.


Of all the series, I have read by Ms. Warren, her Bad Boys of X-Ops unfortunately is not really striking my fancy. Don’t get me wrong, the character are great, plenty of hot sex, and more than enough suspense to keep me reading. It’s just that military-ish theme I’m struggling with. I’ll still recommend this series and I will read the rest of the books, just for me, it’s not anything I would have set out on my own to read.
