Some mistakes from the past haunt us forever… unless fate steps in with a second chance.
One ‘Dear John’ letter haunted Bobby Baker’s every living moment. It was the letter he’d stupidly written to his high school sweetheart, Belle, right after he had left to join the Army. The letter in which he’d told her that he wasn’t so sure they were ready for forever yet. Before he could let her know that the letter, and his second thoughts, were nothing more than a mistake, she disappeared from the small Georgia town they had both been raised in.
Fifteen years after the letter, Belle unknowingly walked back into Bobby’s life when her job as an ATF Agent forced her to work with a group of men secretly headed by the CIA to help her track down whoever was involved in funneling black market weapons to a drug cartel in Mexico.
Bobby planned to use this mission to try to soothe Belle’s hurt feelings while proving to her that their love was meant to be forever. He would use every dirty trick he’d learned since he had joined the Army to maneuver her back into his life for the long haul. Belle was not making it easy, though, as she continued to keep him at arm’s length in the hopes that mistakes of her own would never come to light.

"This is another one of those stories that I find it hard to convey the emotions I had without discussing the reasons for those emotions - hurt, sad, angry, hopeful, anxious, scared, nauseous, relieved - any book that can put me through the ringer as thoroughly as Secret Maneuvers did is one I will recommend to EVERYONE. Even if you don't think you like Contemporary Romance, you will like this." Laura, Little Read Riding Hood
Strong characters, good plot.
Couldn't put it down
The beginning had me good. Who doesn't like a strong woman who pulls herself out of the dark, that is exactly what Belle does. This book had me on the edge of my seat, laughing and sometimes crying.
One rash decision made in a moment of panic has a long lasting impact on Belle and Bobby. A love that cannot be forgotten or ignored. Secret Maneuvers will not leave you disappointment but craving for more.
I have been totally happy with the Jessie Lane books I have read so far. This one is just amazing! These characters are totally believable and I felt as tho they came to life! There is the right amount of suspense , action and drama that makes this story just move along seamlessly. It's a romance story but there is nothing boring about it! Totally worth a weekend read! I have been given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
