Mass Market Paperback ´ Wild Card ePUB í


Wild Card It was supposed to be simple All Navy SEAL Nathan Malone had to do was rescue three young girls from a Colombia drug cartel, then allow himself to be captured just long enough to draw out a government spy That was before his mission went disastrously wrong…and before his wife, Bella, was told that Nathan was never coming homeBella’s mourned her husband’s death for three long years But she has no idea he’s still alive Forced to assume a new identity, the man Nathan was is now dead If he can get back to his wife, can he keep the secret of who he really is…even as desire threatens to consume them? And as danger threatens to tear Bella from Nathan’s arms once ? Let's sit down and talk about something for a minute That one thing we all think about but don't really talk about You know the one SEX I'm not going to get into the romance is porn for women discussion Not gonna do it But obviously, I'm a girl that likes a good romance I love the snap and sizzle The gutting heartbreaks The push and pull between people falling and fighting The eccentric families that always seem to surround them In all its shapes and forms, I love a good love story And that usually includes some sexin' There's a frat boy in me that can't deal with blue balls of the heart I've invested in the back and forth, and there's got to be a reward A FINALLY There's a certain way to write a really good love scene, and that's where this differs from porn There's an eloquence about it A surgical, precise dance with the words A way that can turn a kiss into a conversation that has a reader entranced by it all Lora Leigh's books don't do that She just straight up drills you with it And it becomes relentless Like a marathon session you have to walk away from because damn it, you're tired, and this is all getting a little ridiculous There was a story here Something I was intrigued by the mystery and the brokenness of the hero and how does somebody come back from that And his poor, supposedly widowed wife I wanted to see how it would all pan out And I did But the emotion, heart and sex wasn't done with that precise touch that I love More like a jackhammer. 4 go síoraí Stars *Spoilers* A man that's whole That's what you deserve, Sabella And I'm not whole any longer I haven't been in a long time.So Wild Card is the first book in the Elite Ops Series, and the first book I have read by the author Lora Leigh, and I loved it Life is good for Nathan Malone He is a Navy Seal Married to his beautiful, young, soul mate When not out on missions for the Seals, he is running his mechanic shop He goes out on what he thinks will be a simple in and out mission rescue three young girls from a Colombia drug cartel, but instead he is captured, beat, had almost every bone in his body broke, cut up, and pumped full of a drug called Whores dust for months and months before being rescued By the time they get him out his wife Sabella was already told that he was dead He is insane from all the drugs and pain, so he refuses to let the Seals tell his wife the truth that he is still alive and very messed up, instead he gives her up for her own good He leaves the Seals for a group called The Elite Ops Now Nathan is legally dead he takes on a the name Noah Blake, cold, super trained and deadly It's been 6 years since his wife Sebella was told he was dead and he is being sent back to his home town to his home, and garage because his wife and brother are in danger, can he keep himself from feeling again Will Noah be able to stay away from his bella, or will he find out he is not as dead inside as he thought?Why are you so frightened of this? he whispered then Or are you just too frightened to live again?Noah /Nathan: Noah, Noah , Noah what am I gonna do with you!!!!!! Noah made me love him and want to beat him in equal measure! He was sexy, strong, all alpha , Irish, but he was also bull headed, prideful, and at times selfish Don't get me wrong he was really messed up, lived through hell, but in my book letting your wife think your dead for years, because you are scared that she can't handle how messed up you are, or you don't want her to see how weak you are is selfish!!! I loved that he was a total dirty talking bad boy, Loved that he remained faithful to his wife, loved his protectiveness, and at the same time I wanted to beat the shit outta him because he wouldn't tell his wife who he really was I think him hiding who he was from her for almost the whole book made him kind of a candy ass! Like I said equal amounts of love for him and wanting to beat him!!!! I think Lora Leigh did a really good job of making you understand what he was feeling The fear that his wife wouldn't forgive him because he didn't send for her and let her know he was alive, the fear that he wouldn't be able to stay with her because he was part of the Elite Ops, and his pain and regret over his past mistakes Fighting to win his wife's heart again from the ghost of himself.Tell me, Sabella Did you ache? Did you dream of being taken hard and rough? Of getting wild and dirty with your husband? Were you too afraid to be the little wildcat you wanted to be?Get that in your head, Sabella I am not Nathan Malone I am not the man you loved, but by God I am the man that's going to fuck you That's going to hold you when you cry in the night, and the man that's going to bind you to him so tight, so hard, that you'll never think to hide even a partical of who and what you are from him.You're the best thing that ever happened to me, he finally said In my life, touching you, holding you, is the best thing I've ever done But shit happens, baby And shit blew up in my face a long damned time ago.Sabella: I loved Sabella I loved her name, loved her personality She was strong when she needed to be, soft when she needed to be Loyal, sweet, understanding , forgiving , but she wasn't a doormat I could empathize with her, understand her pain, confusion and longing, she never felt fake to me She was very brave and fought for her man Smart figured out who he was right away and knew their was a important reason he wasn't telling her If I wanted a manicure then I would have one If I wanted to sit back and play receptionist all day then that's what the hell I would do If I wanted another man to decide how I should act, dress, or present myself then I'd have one That is not a part of your job description, Mr Blake, and if you think you can make it happen then you can take a flying leap into hell.It was my right She was back in his face Do you hear me, Noah? My fucking right to put up with it And to do it gladly You bastard! You are my husband My lover And you hid that from me, Noah I had the dark passion you hid from me while we were married, and I saw the ferocity of the man who would protect me in those mountains It doesn't matter if your name is Nathan, Noah, or Hey Fucking You, you are my lover My soul My heart And by God, you are not dead Because if you were Her lips trembled If you were, then I'd be dead Don't you know that? Don't you see that? If the man that loved me was gone, then I'd be ashes now Not standing here screaming at a moron withpride than good sense I carried your scratches last week like other men carry a medal, he growled, then nipped her lips I jacked off remembering how hot you were in my arms And then I imagined your mouth Watching your eyes Seeing how hungry you could get.Noah and Bella together had tons of chemistry and tons of drama I loved them together, and I was rooting for them to make it the whole book I loved Rory, Noah's brother, he was great , so was nik and Jordan This book had a great plot, and made me feel There is only two reasons this book is a solid 4 star book instead of a 5.1 there was 2 sex scenes too many!!!! My eyes kinda glazed over there was so much sex 2 I think Noah should have told her who he was sooner!Other than that I think this is a great start to the series and I can't wait to read the next one I leave my favorite moment in the book below:I'm telling you I have to tell Grandpop, and we're all gonna pay All of us Tell him that one for me He does it again and we're all screwed 'cause I'm squealin' like a pig to the old man and savin' my own ass first You tell him that.http://jessicasoverthetopbookobsessio SPOILERS AHEADI wish I can say how much I loved this book and how much the characters made me root for them butI can't, plain and simple I refuse to call Lora’s characters as the Hero and Heroine since they are anything but that.Wild Card was one of the first books I read from Lora Leigh and I admitted that I was anticipating an actual love story between the characters since the back cover seemed so interesting But no, all I got was a book that was 418 pages long and half of them contained the words of pussy and cock and f**k The sex scenes were intense but about halfway I was skipping them to make sure this was a romance novel and not the Kama Sutra with crappy dialog inbetween.When I read Wild Card I couldn't help but give in to the urge to cuss and throw the book across the room when I read just how cruel and disrespectful Noah was toward Bella It took me awhile to pick up the book while wondering who the hell wants to constantly be told you're the weaker sex therefore you're only good for f**king! If my husband disrespected me just once he's in the dog house for a week; but in Bella's case she's just going to spread them wide Bella had no standard for herself and definitely no selfrespect Every time Noah would start sexing Bella up I wanted to clonk a hot frying pan at them; he seems to have a dick for a brain and Bella? Please, even a worm has better sense She keeps getting aroused by his insulting words and big hardon dick when what she should do is get some common sense and hit him in the groinwith a sledgehammer Noah and everyone around her kept telling Bella to have sex with Noah but NOBODY, not her friends nor her family, would tell her that he was her husband Nathan back from the dead And Noah, this guy takes the cake and yes, he f**ks with it and gives it a great mindblowing blow job and eats it too Selfish and abusive What a turn on NOT He didn't want Bella to know that he was her husband Nathan but oh no, it was alright to deceived her by telling her to Get over your husband I'm the man for you, as he's plowing into her like an animal in heat I expected Bella to get mad as hell when she found out that Noah was actually Nathan but no, little Miss Sunshine just went along with his charade and still open her legs wide for him It was unbelievable to the point of sickening They truly deserved each other Noah and all of Lora's men have this anger management problem They tend to jump into conclusion and say some pretty cruel stuff to the woman character and instead of leaving the idiots; these women go back to them Reading her books are like: guy gets horny, girl is turn on, guy girl fight, have sex, guy gets horny, girl is turn on, guy girl fight, have sex, horny, fight, sex, horny, fight, sex, horny, fight, sex, fall in love, horny, fight, sex, and happy horny ending Halfway through the book you would expect Bella to have a rat's nest for a head and Noah, a broken dick.Lora Leigh has this fascination of verbally abusive men and weak willed women Hell, she makes Diana Palmer's men look like angels with halos All or most of her women are untouched and/or virgins and no offense but they make all virgins seem naive and desperate for sex These womanly virgins are stupid, not realistic, has no standards, has no confidence, have a stick for a brain, and the only good usage for them is their pussyaccording to the man of their dreams No wonder women, virgins in particular, are given a bad rep these days They're only good for a quick laid, they would NEVER EVER get mad at their man no matter how much he deserves it and they're simply a doormat for anyone I shudder to think that this is how all women want to be treated like.Wild Card is just about a selfcentered man and a dimwitted woman who distrusted each other from the beginning and through out the entire book I want to point out that I find a hard time accepting their relationship if you can call it that as one that is based on a solid foundation of love and trust. Nathan Malone was one dirty talking guy I loved him I see the cover has been changed since I bought this book Bought it 3 years ago Bit of a cover whore, I am Not sure what was wrong with the original cover This is the new one It was supposed to be simple All Navy SEAL Nathan Malone had to do was rescue three young girls from a Colombia drug cartel, then allow himself to be captured just long enough to draw out a government spy That was before his mission went disastrously wrong…and before his wife, Bella, was told that Nathan was never coming home Now, I am happily married to my own Irish but he's not a patch on Nathan!! Sorry honey!! These images are not mine I did a quick search on Pinterest and came up with these so if they belong to someone on here, I hope you don't mind me using them.One small quibble I would have is that it seemed to drag a bit towards the end I mean, I love sex in books but Jeez Louise, this guy could keep it up 24/7.
