♡ Blog Tour + #Giveaway ♡ Walker (Bad Boys of X-Ops #1) by Rie Warren @RieWrites @bookplugpromo #Live #OneClick

Bad Boys of X-Ops #1
Rie Warren

✾ Synopsis ✾

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.

✿ Excerpt ✿

I relaxed my stance, lounging slightly back. "You know what I like to do when I need to expel some energy, Jade?" Her name came out buttery soft with a slight dare.

My eyes lowered to the dangerous curves of her body and the atmosphere shifted again, compelling me closer to her sensual heat.

Her gaze widened, the green of her irises drowning in darker depths.

"What?" she asked, breathless and not backing down.

"Fuck or fight. So what's it gonna be?"

"Fight," she declared.

I loped forward to the center of the room. "Here's the deal, if I win, we fuck."

"If I win, you're dead." She flashed a challenging grin at me, getting into combat stance.

"Bring it." I curled my fingers in her direction.

I usually didn't hit chicks, but the truth was I couldn't wait to get physical with this woman anyway I could.

We stalked briefly around one another, balancing on the balls of our bare feet, lunging and snaking away before any strikes landed on flesh.

The heat in the room multiplied by a million degrees when Jade whipped off her hoodie, revealing a tight black tank top that showed off the sleek sinews of her arms and shoulders.

My low wolf whistle seemed to really set her off.


With a high shriek, she leaped across the air. Coming down, she planted her heel in my solar plexus. Before I could recoil her hand captured my braid, and she cuffed me across the face.

I thrust her away with my knee at her chest so she stumbled a few steps.

"Nice move." I swiped the blood from my mouth.

"I learned it from watching you. You fight like a girl."

"And you got a big mouth. Hope you can back it up."

Jade grunted, pouncing forward. I ducked the blow she aimed at my ribs then rose behind her. Cinching her wrists in my fist, I held her hands immobile at the base of her spine.

I pulled her against me. Sweat drizzled between my chest and her back. The muscles in my arms and shoulders bunched with restraint.

Her ass moved almost imperceptibly against my steel-hard cock, and she gasped before growling.

Squeezing her fingers together into a tight funnel, she cranked her head back against my throat. She slipped free while I bent over, taking in deep draws of O2.

Whirling on me, Jade bit out, "Come on, baby. Hit me. You're the one who suggested a fight."

"Actually, I was angling for a fuck." I reeled away from her incoming roundhouse kick before she made contact. "But what can I say? Lady's choice."

"Then you actually have to fight me to get it." Her tits rose and fell with the harsh breaths in and out of her lungs. "Your rules."

I growled and lowered down on my haunches, prowling in a circle around her. "That what it takes to get you going, Jade?"

"You don't have what it takes."

Bad Boys of X-Ops #2
Rie Warren

Release Date: April 25th 2016

✾ Synopsis ✾

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

Good girl versus Bad boy. Southern charm comes head-to-head with military grit. They say opposites attract. That's an understatement where Justice and Lawless are concerned.


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.

✿ Excerpt ✿

"Hey, Bella, right?" My pencil dropped out of my hand as I jumped at the voice next to our table. That was the second time today I caught myself gawking at Owen as he walked away. I studied his ass so much, I'd memorized the fraying denim on his back pockets. Blinking my leering eyes, I turned to a sort of familiar face.

"Yeah. I'm sorry but I don't know your name."

"Paul. I'm in Intro to Psychology with you." Paul was cute in a non-mentionable type of way. With his dark features and average build and height, he easily blended into a crowd — and my psych class was over three hundred people. I spent most of that class feeling like an ant.

"Oh, right." I smacked my forehead in faked recognition. "I'm sorry. That class is huge."

Paul chuckled as he nodded. "It's a good thing Professor Brightman is interesting. It would suck for him to look out and see three hundred people sleeping." He let out a nervous laugh as he gazed at me.

I smiled back. "I guess you're right. It's hard to notice anything or anyone in those seats, though. I'm sure people take naps in that class anyway."

"Well," Paul sighed as his eyes dropped to the ground. "I noticed you. From pretty much the first day."

"Oh," I replied in a whisper. I was only here on a study date, even though I almost let myself pretend it was more. Paul seemed nice but, whether it was misplaced or not, my interest was in the hockey player waiting by the barista. Should I force myself to flirt with Paul? That wouldn't be fair to either of us, but putting all my eggs in one unattainable basket wasn't exactly healthy either.

Paul grabbed the back of the chair next to me and raised his eyebrows in question. "Can I sit? I'd love to get to know the girl behind the pretty face."

"Seat's taken." A southern growl behind me made Paul's face fall.

Owen placed my iced coffee and straw in front of me as he glared at Paul.

Paul let out a long sigh and nodded. "Sorry, Owen. I didn't realize you were with Bella."

"We're on a study—"

"It's cool, Paul. See you at practice later." Owen sat in his chair and scooted it closer to me.

Paul nodded and gave me a sheepish smile before traipsing away.

Okay, what was that? "You know Paul?"

He nodded without looking up. "He's one of the third line freshmen on the team. Doesn't seem like a bad guy, I guess." With a sour face I wasn't used to seeing, he dug into his bag and pulled out a notebook. If I didn't know better, I'd have said he was jealous. I sucked in my bottom lip to fight the twitch of a satisfied smile.

"I don't really know him. He's in my Intro to Psych class. Too many people in there to really know who anyone is."

"You know what we should do?" Owen met my gaze as he leaned back in his chair.

I took a slurp of my coffee and squinted at Owen. "Enlighten me."

Owen laughed as the front legs of his chair dropped to the floor and he leaned forward. "We should go out."

With the straw still in my mouth, I froze. "Out?"

Owen nodded and gave me a sideways glance. "Yeah, out. You. Me. Without books or ledgers. We can celebrate how well we both did on the midterm — or how well you did and how I got by thanks to you." Owen's brow raised as he awaited my answer, but I didn't know how to reply.

"I really don't mind helping you. I get to study a little extra too, so it helps both of us." Still ignoring his question, I opened my notes and skimmed to the midterm review questions. Owen inched closer to peer at my book, and I resented the jump in my pulse whenever he came near me. We'd been meeting twice a week for one hour at a time since the beginning of the semester, and each day I was more drawn to him than the one before. Last Thursday, Owen met me at the library straight after hockey practice when his hair was still damp from the shower. All I could think of for the first fifteen minutes was how the rest of his body looked wet, drops of water dripping across every muscle and hard ridge.

Owen was the first man I had dreams of licking while I was still awake.
