S.E.X Review~ Extraction by Lex Valentine

Two soldiers, former lovers, each think they are saving the other from a South American drug cartel, all the while rehashing their broken relationship.
Green Beret Shane Cullen has been undercover for the DEA with a South American drug cartel. Eighteen months into his assignment, and unbeknownst to Shane, the cartel’s number two man is captured by the U.S. Marshals and starts to talk. Shane’s mission becomes endangered. His Special Forces commander calls in a favor and pulls in Shane’s former lover and teammate Elliott Hutchens for an extraction.
Elliott hasn’t seen Shane in almost two years, since his lover walked out on him. But Shane’s in trouble and doesn’t know it, so Elliott can’t refuse the mission. Getting himself captured by the cartel in order to force Shane to rescue him is the easy part. The hard part comes when Shane discovers he’s the real extraction, not Elliott. Shane’s bad temper ended their relationship once before. Will it get in the way again or can these two soldiers work through their issues and find their way to a happy ever after?
Extraction by Lex Valentine was a nice mixture of military op and comradery. One time lovers Shane and Elliott reluctantly moved on two years prior and now found themselves in the thick of each other’s lives again. 

The insertion and back story of the lovers separate from their specialized military units added depth to the tale. Focusing more on their personal lives, Ms. Valentine delivered a bit of angst and a healthy dose of love as Shane and Elliott found their way back to each

I enjoyed the secondary characters and hope there is a book two in the works- although the MCs received an HEA, there is definitely more to the story.

The sexy scenes were sensual and forthright, well-places and profound. Shane and Elliott were rock solid and very likeable characters.
