Elite Ops #2
By Emmy Curtis
Releasing November 3rd, 2017

In Wingman (Elite Ops #2) by Emmy Curtis, Major Missy Malden and Lieutenant Colonel Francis Conrad both know that getting involved with each other could cause too much of a distraction, so they're determined to deny their feelings, even if that means that Missy does the one thing Conrad doesn't expect. However, when Missy finds herself in trouble in being accused of treason, Conrad is determined to do everything he can to protect her. Yet, keeping her safe will mean taking risks including the biggest -- putting everything on the line. Will Conrad be able to convince Missy that they're meant to be together; or will the danger be too much for the pair to handle?

Having really enjoyed the first book of this series due to the suspense, I was so looking forward to the next story of Ms. Curtis's Elite Ops series, and I've got to say that it was just as captivating as the first book with its fantastic main characters that prove distractions can prove costly in their line of work, but taking a risk is worth it. The way this story started had me intrigued by what the heroine is going through, as it's palpable she's in trouble and possibly in danger if she doesn't discover what's going on. Will she be charged with treason?

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories, especially that of the heroine, as she was given an ultimatum to enlist otherwise she could have faced a worse punishment in going to jail. What did she do in her younger years that led her to signing with the military? Yet, it was also intense due to everything this couple go through on their journey to happy ever after. Really, the fast-paced storyline left me very intrigued, as to what lengths the bad guys would go to in silencing Missy because of what they think she knows? 

Both the main characters were brilliant and I really liked the heroine's back story, as it's made her the strong, independent woman she is. Moreover, she's sassy, confident and I liked that she was determined to do what was right for her, even if it might not be the right decision in the long run when she's so in love with Conrad. While the hero, he's confident, cocky and I liked the tight bond these two shared, which shows they work well together. I also liked how determined the hero was to protect the heroine, even if it means he could land himself in hot water with the information he's willing to spill to save her from being a scapegoat after what happens during a training exercise.

Overall, Ms. Curtis has delivered a very entertaining read from beginning to end where this couple charmed me with their playful banter and intense back stories; the chemistry was powerful; the romance was hot and showed how right these two are for each other; and the ending had me worried for one of the main characters because of what happens to them. Will the hero and heroine come out on top against the bad guys? However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up nicely, as readers learn something very interesting about the hero and heroine when it comes to their careers; and discover how far Conrad and Missy have come in their relationship. I would recommend Wingman by Emmy Curtis, if you enjoy romantic suspense, the friends to lovers trope, or books by authors Lynn Raye Harris, Misty Evans, Tonya Burrows and Maya Banks.

The higher the risk, the harder the fall.

Maj. Missy Malden loves her job, her plane, and its pilot-not that she could ever let him know. He's way too cocky, way too sexy, and in their job, any distraction is way too dangerous. But when a training exercise spirals out of control, Missy's in the hot seat, and Conrad's the only one who can bail her out...

Lt. Col. Francis Conrad has always valued Missy too much as his weapons specialist to ever tell her how he really feels. But now that she's been accused of treason, he can't sit back and let her fly solo. To keep her safe, he'll put everything on the line-his career, his heart, and even his life.

She shook her head. “I don’t see any of this ending well for us."
“I promise I’ll provide conjugal visits if you end up in the slammer,” he said.
“You’ll provide them? Like, you’ll send someone? Do I get to pick…?”
He grabbed her chin and made her face him. “No one gets to touch you except me. Not on my watch.” He hesitated after he said the words, and she wondered if he realized how cheesy-movie he sounded.
She tried not to laugh, and his eyes narrowed at her effort. In less than a second his lips were on hers. Rampant desire flooded her body as his tongue thrust into her mouth, dominating her. Damn.
She kissed him back, matching him touch for touch, stroke for stroke. Without skipping a beat, he knelt in front of her, and put his hands around her back to stop her from moving away from him on the playground swing.
He angled his head, almost punishing her mouth with a ferocity that set her on fire. She grabbed his head and pulled him even closer, reveling in the burst of desire that turned her thoughts to mush.
His fingers grasped the bottom of her t-shirt and yanked it over her head. Her nipples hardened at the contact with the cool air.
“Jesus, you’re beautiful in moonlight,” he whispered as his lips descended to her breasts. He tongued each nipple, sending spirals of excitement through her body, and then bit them, making her back arch, and her head to tip back in surrender.
He pulled at one nipple as his hands dragged her underwear shorts down and off.
God help her; she was naked, on a swing, on Nellis Air Force Base. And she was supposed to be under house arrest. The frisson of terror and excitement set her nerve endings on fire. She felt every waft of breeze on her skin as if it were someone’s fingers, every breath she took felt as if she were inhaling freedom and inhibition.
