Master Chief James “JJ” Jones is at the end of a thirty-two-year Navy SEAL Career. At a chance meeting in San Diego, he meets recently widowed and retired teacher Irene Ortiz. JJ and Irene feel an undeniable attraction that pulls them together for one night. He draws passion from the lonely Irene, the likes of which she has never known.
When JJ becomes the target of a traitor, his life and his budding love for Irene are put in jeopardy. He leaves his beloved SEALs to track down the people responsible for planning his demise when he discovers a plot that could bring the United States military to its knees. JJ is recalled back to Special Warfare Group Five and sets out on a worldwide chase.
Irene decides to follow her heart, and at JJ’s side, she helps him to stop fervent terrorists from unleashing a deadly pathogen. Will JJ and Irene be able to keep the terrorists from unleashing a nightmare?
Recently widowed, Irene isn’t looking for love. But in Tactical Error by Bella Juarez Irene and JJ find more than either expected or were looking for. But can Irene learn to trust not only her heart but JJ? I loved that both Irene and JJ were not some young things. They were mature, past the first blush of life but still looking for love, even if it was unintentional. Ms. Juarez showed us that not just the young can have a passionate relationship. She showed that not just the young can find love. She showed that self-doubt is not limited to those just spreading their wings. I loved that Irene wasn’t quite sure what she wanted. She was recently widowed and her experience sexual or otherwise was limited to her husband. JJ was more seasoned at least sexually, but his heart has been barely touched. That all changes when he meets Irene, but is he ready for what it means? But ready or not, JJ is determined to get the gal and even if he must fight her fears he is ready and willing to do what’s necessary. This story was action packed. There were no lulls. Ms. Juarez kept the story moving even as she moved the series arc along even as she gave JJ and Irene their love story. The characters were well developed. The story well written and I can’t wait to see what happens next in Ms. Juarez’s Black Ops Brotherhood series.
