Operation Underworld ~ Elise Marion ~ Reviews
When a mysterious invitation turns up on his doorstep, Mateo’s eyes are opened to a brand new world—one he never could have imagined, even in his worst nightmares. His suspect is actually a demon, and there’s only one way to bring him down: join Operation Underworld, a secret organization dedicated to policing paranormal entities. With the resources they offer, Mateo finally has what he needs to catch his wife’s murderer once and for all.
What he doesn’t expect is Melody Frank, a waitress working at a club frequented by ‘The Satanist’ and his followers. The attraction that sparks between them can’t be denied, but Mateo is after vengeance. He can’t afford to lose his head over a woman. However, Melody’s secrets run deeper than he knows. Before long, what she’s hiding begins to his intertwine with case, making it impossible for him to separate business from pleasure. When the truth about Melody comes out, he is left wondering whether she can be trusted, or if his connection to her will ultimately kill his one shot at revenge.
Fight For Vengeance is a perfect FBI thriller with a paranormal twist. Elise Marion took two of my favorite genres and combined them in a suspenseful, sexy, thrill ride. Two things...1. Mateo is HOT. 2. Fans of The Guardian Series will be thrilled to know that Sexy Jack guest stars in this series too! Without says anything else, that alone is worth the price of admission.
After discovering the dark secrets of Melody’s past, Mateo is finding it hard to turn his back on her. Nothing in Melody’s world is as it seems, and as he begins to untangle the web connecting her to the suspects he’s fighting to bring down, it becomes clear that she needs his help. It’s not long before his mission to save her from danger develops into something more. What began as a quest for vengeance is now a fight for freedom, leaving Mateo wondering if there could be a future for him with Melody in it. But first things first … he has to free her from her demon-possessed crime-boss boyfriend, while taking down his entire business and keeping her safe in the process.
OMG. I read this in one sitting. Yes, it's that great.
The action sequences in the book vividly played out before my eyes. The author, Elise Marion, knows how to draw in the reader and make you a part of it all. I felt the swoosh of air before the punch landed. And the SEX....the hotness meter blew up!!!!
Now as to the developing story... We peel back Melody's layers and get her backstory - the gritty, ugly truth of it all. Despite all the hardship this girl has been through she is one of the toughest MCs I have come across.
Mateo is also closing in on Korenic. The explosive battle left me breathless. I love how Elise Marion paints such fluid, vivid fights. She knows how to suck me in.
Can't wait for the final showdown in Book 3.
Melody Frank hasn’t had the best luck in life—abusive parents, living on the streets at sixteen, and being under the thumb of a crime boss ex-boyfriend. But now, with the human trafficking ring that once ensnared her dismantled and Mateo at her side, there is at last a glimmer of hope in her life … until a minion of The Naphil kidnaps her, delivering her into the hands of a killer determined to get back at Mateo for destroying his business. But even the threat of torture and death won’t break her, and Melody will do whatever it takes to get back to Mateo. With him, she has found love … and that is worth fighting for.
I cannot say enough great things about this series. It has it all; action, drama, suspense, demons, guardians, angels, lust and romance. It's goes from white knuckle grip the kindle action to blushing, hot sexiness.
My favorite character in the series is Melody. The girl has moxy. Despite all the crap life has thrown at her, she never quits. Her character evolves through the series too. She does what she has to do to survive. Love her strength and self preservation.
The final installment had all the feels. Chapter 18 left me a blubbering mess. Elise Marion left me wanting more Operation Underworld adventures and longing for more Guardians too.
MEET THE AUTHOR
When I’m not wrangling my three rambunctious kids, or spending time with my retired Army husband, I’m stretching the imagination with stories of people from all walks of life (and worlds) falling in love.
I love coffee, chocolate, music (listening and singing), shoes, jewelry, and food! I am always in the kitchen whipping up something new or watching the pros do it on TV. You can often find my characters eating or cooking something delish and sucking down mass quantities of coffee.
