From Best Selling Author Jessie Lane...
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
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.
A must read
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is the first book I've read by this author and she did not disappoint. The story revolves around Belle and Bobby and their relationship which started in their teens. This is a story about life, relationships and second chances. It is well-written and the storyline flowed smoothly. I must say that I experienced a variety of emotions that I rarely feel in any book. I laughed, cried, loved and hated the characters at some point that I want to knock some sense into them. But these feelings reminded me that we're only humans, flawed and prone to making mistakes. I felt like I'm experiencing the journey of Belle and Bobby along with them as they navigate the intricacies of a relationship. The characters are believable and have substance; there's growth in the as the author tells of the time that has passed. The author clearly did her research and infused the story with realism with accurate depictions of military details and the inner psyche. There are some parts that are very difficult to read and a disclosure should have been given to alert a reader that it contains graphic and violent details which may trigger an anxiety/panic attacks to an abuse survivor so appropriate actions maybe taken. While this is an objective comment, this didn't Boston me from enjoying the story. This is still among my top book a well-thought out and emotional read that I would do re-reads again. Having a HEA is a plus and helps every time. Hats off to the author for a job well done!
Secret Maneuvers by Jessie Lane was a suspense filled story. Bobby and Bella work to regain the relationship that they had years ago. Will time heal the wounds or will secrets keep them apart?
