2.0 out of 5 stars Cricky, not again!
This could have been such a good plot, really had potential, but I only made it to 50% through, though I would have liked to see what happened in the end.
Honestly, I enjoy a good sex scene, a build up and even explicit descriptions. This story could hardly move forward though as at every conceivable time the two lead characters interacted there was sexual reference...

4.0 out of 5 stars INTENSE, EXPLOSIVE & SUSPENSEFUL!, 8 July 2014
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Kickass Girl falls for a Kickass hot guy - what a brilliant book!, 2 Aug. 2014

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

This review is from: Extreme Measures (Aegis Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
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
This review is from: Extreme Measures (Aegis Series Book 1) (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 suspense filled stars, 8 July 2014

This review is from: Extreme Measures (Aegis Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
4.5 stars

EXTREME MEASURES is the first instalment in Elisabeth Naughton’s new contemporary, adult, Aegis Security action suspense series focusing on a group of former CIA operatives and Special Forces personnel. This is CIA operative Eve Wolfe and Aegis Security operative Zane Archer’s storyline-a story that introduces the players in international espionage and national defense.

The focus of the storyline finds Eve and Zane on opposite sides of an investigation into the manufacturing of chemical weapons and missing persons. From a time when Zane and Eve first met, years before, neither one has been able to forget their lust filled affair that ended with betrayal and heartache. Fast forward and, Eve and Zane find themselves the targets of homeland vigilantes and assassins trying to take them both down in a war between good and evil. But everyone will have a difficult time separating the good from the bad when all fingers point to someone they have all trusted-in the past.

The relationship between Eve and Zane is tempered by thoughts of betrayal and undercover dealings behind closed doors. As the storyline progresses, so too does the sexual attraction between our couple-one that is hot, steamy and addicting.

The reader is introduced to several secondary characters from Aegis Security and the CIA. The world building brings counter-intelligence, espionage and the Department of Defense onto the pages of a storyline that finds two people, with issues of trust, depending on one another for their very lives.

EXTREME MEASURES is a second chance at love storyline with action, suspense, mystery and romance. The reader is pulled into a moving, intense and dramatic story that will captivate as well as fascinate. There is heartbreak and painful revelations for two people who fell in love at a difficult time in both of their lives.

Elisabeth Naughton writes from the heart with an incredible gift of imagination and wondrous story telling. EXTREME MEASURES is the perfect start to a new series that everyone will surely enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Too much sex, 23 Nov. 2014

This review is from: Extreme Measures (Aegis Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
It is good book, dont get me wrong but half of it is about sex scenes. I had to keep turning pages and it went on and on. In my opinion it was a bit too much. Otherwise a good thrilling book.

Honestly, I enjoy a good sex scene, a build up and even explicit descriptions. This story could hardly move forward though as at every conceivable time the two lead characters interacted there was sexual reference after sexual reference, entirely unbelievable, totally over the top and their same thoughts are repeated, repeatedly.
More story, sexy stuff in appropriate places please instead of forcing it upon us at every single opportunity that could be found.

4.0 out of 5 stars Romance and intrigue, 6 Feb. 2015
This review is from: Extreme Measures (Aegis Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
A good start to the series on Aegis, a private security firm. This focuses on Zane, a former CIA operative and a colleague Eve. They had an affair, then Zane thought she'd betrayed him and set out to find her.
The characters are developed well, the supporting ones look interesting (the next books) and it keeps your interest as it moves between the rekindling of Eve and Zanes romance and the intrigue surrounding terrorism and espionage.
A good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love and Action, 24 Dec. 2014

This review is from: Extreme Measures (Aegis Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
This was a well written book about the extraction of a scientist which goes wrong, and a bombing. There is plenty of detail so you can follow what is going on, but who is the traitor? Along with all the action is a love story, with a little too much sexual detail for me, but personal preferences differ. This is a good book well deserving of the four stars. Recommended for an adult audience.
