Book Description

Being prepared for any scenario is the trademark of any good CIA operative, and Eve Wolfe is one of the best. But when her latest mission literally explodes in her face, she wakes up labeled a traitor and—even more surprising—in the custody of elite Aegis Security operative and ex-lover Zane Archer. Although she still secretly has feelings for Zane, he’s now demanding the one thing that she can’t give him: the truth.

When he caught her breaking the rules years ago, Zane let Eve walk away without an explanation. Now someone has not only sabotaged Aegis but also turned an American city into a war zone, and all signs point to Eve. Zane needs answers that can come only from Eve’s still-tempting lips, and he finally has the elusive operative right where he wants her—at his mercy.

The first book in bestselling author Elisabeth Naughton’s new steamy romantic suspense series brings a spy in from the cold…and sets her heart ablaze.

4.0 out of 5 stars INTENSE, EXPLOSIVE & SUSPENSEFUL! 8 July 2014
Format:Paperback
Extreme Measures is the first book in the Aegis Security series by author Elisabeth Naughton. Intense and delightful, it is a thrilling and intriguing tale of CIA operative Eve Wolfe and Aegis Security agent Zane Archer which will fascinate and mesmerize readers from start to finish. While the action is fast and furious, and the suspense never-ending, there are certain implausible situations which you’ll choose to ignore only if you are a true fan of the author, or taken in by the book.

Aegis Security agent Zane Archer and CIA operative Eve Wolfe are an unlikely enemies as they are not only close to each other but lovers. Their relationship nose-dived when Zane suspected Eve of betrayal which resulted in a botched mission causing several deaths with Zane barely escaping with his life. Zane is determined to track down the person who almost sent him to his death and the trail eventually leads to Eve. When Zane finally confronts Eve with the terrible accusation, she is unable to explain herself out of the situation.

But holding Eve does not solve any problem. Aegis Security is more at risk and so is an entire town. If Eve is innocent, who is setting her up? Zane and Eve must set their egos and distrust aside and work together again to get to the bottom of the mystery. Author Elisabeth Naughton’s Extreme Measures is fast-paced and full of action and suspense. The plot twists and surprises make this an incredible ride to the very last page.

Extreme Measures by Elisabeth Naughton (AEGIS Series)
Format: Amazon Kindle
Borrowed from Amazon Prime

Elisabeth Naughton has done it again with her latest book 'Extreme Measures' . A 'can't put you down' book which keeps the reader turning the pages.

I borrowed this book via Amazon Prime as I've read some of Elisabeth's other books and really enjoyed her writing style. She carries her characters very well and each is rounded and the reader can associate with them. Her writing style is to jump between the the two main characters revealing their emotions and thoughts. The story line flows very well and the secondary characters have intrigued me so much I can't wait for the next book in the Aegis series. The first two stories of the series were released as novellas and this is the first full length novel.

Zane Archer and Evelyn Wolfe aka Sawyer and Juliet are two operatives in the world of CIA and private security. Zane left the CIA to work for Aegis security and had a hot affair with Eve in Beirut where things turned dangerous for both of them. Eve vanishes and Zane decides to find her to get to the bottom of the truth about their relationship. Twists and turns and intricate well thought out plots leaves the reader on the edge of the seat!

The action scenes are brilliantly written and realistic and don't even talk about that hot sexy shower scene! WOW!

Elisabeth did a huge amount of research for this book and that gives the book the edge - it is realistic and the reader can associate with the characters. Can't wait for Marley and Jake's as well as Olivia and Miller's stories.

A brilliant read!

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars 25 July 2014
By Debbie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first full length novel as part of the Aegis Security, some novellas appear in various box sets.

Being prepared for any scenario is the trademark of any good CIA operative, and Eve Wolfe is one of the best. But when her latest mission literally explodes in her face, she wakes up labeled a traitor and—even more surprising—in the custody of elite Aegis Security operative and ex-lover Zane Archer. Although she still secretly has feelings for Zane, he’s now demanding the one thing that she can’t give him: the truth.

When he caught her breaking the rules years ago, Zane let Eve walk away without an explanation. Now someone has not only sabotaged Aegis but also turned an American city into a war zone, and all signs point to Eve. Zane needs answers that can come only from Eve’s still-tempting lips, and he finally has the elusive operative right where he wants her—at his mercy.

oh! this had a couple of twists and turns and i had to double back at times! long plot line, that goes back a while, but really good. Im a fan of Naughton anyway, but this just nailed it! you get to hear from Zane and Eve, so thats a good thing!

Eve and Zane revisit their relationship, that ended badly when a job went wrong, while trying to keep themselves from getting killed, while also trying to save some very sensitive information getting into the wrong hands.

lots of action, and lots of hot scenes, plenty to keep everyone happy!

4.5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars tightly written thriller 17 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Extreme Measures, Elisabeth Naughton
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
This book is the first in a new romantic suspense series from Elisabeth. It's written in her usual tightly plotted style, with numerous twists and turns. So many in fact that I was way off base in my ( ever changing ) guesses at who was behind everything. I loved Zane, he's so protective of Eve, even when he thinks she may be a traitor. Eve is in love with him, from when they were on a job together a while back and they had a secret hot and heavy fling. She doesn't want to get her heart broken again though and – very importantly to her – she thinks she'll bring Zane into danger and that if he knows all that she's done he'll turn against her. Better to get out before that happens, so after that last job she stayed out of contact. Now after a job has gone wrong Zane is back in the picture trying to help her, to get the truth from her, but they are both plunged into a nightmare scenario where its clear there's someone pulling strings but not who...
I love the rapport between Eve and Zane, that he doesn't get to trust her straight off after all those months of feeling she's to blame for the last mission. It makes for an edgy relationship where they are both angry with each other, won't or can't let the past go, and sexually the attraction between them is visceral and hard to ignore – but they try – for a while...
I enjoyed this, its a great story and as ever I'm awed by how writers pull together such a tight story when the questions raised are myriad. There must be a huge amount of research goes into how diffferent Gov departments work. It's easy to feel that this could be real – that official bodies take a pragmatic view of lives and do whats most efficient and effective, what will keep their secrets hidden for the good of the whole...
Stars: 4.5. If you like thrillers, you love this fast paced and sensual novel.
ARC supplied via Netgalley and publishers.
