Jina Modell works in Communications for a paramilitary organization, and she really likes it. She likes the money, she likes the coolness factorand it was very cool, even for Washington, DC. She liked being able to kick terrorist butts without ever leaving the climate-controlled comfort of the control room.But when Jina displays a really high aptitude for spatial awareness and action, shes reassigned to work as an on-site drone operator in the field with one of the GO-teams, an elite paramilitary unit. The only problem is she isnt particularly athletic, to put it mildly, and in order to be fit for the field, she has to learn how to run and swim for miles, jump out of a plane, shoot a gun...or else be out of a job.Team leader Levi, call sign Ace, doesnt have much confidence in Jinawho he dubbed Babe as soon as he heard her raspy, sexy voicemaking it through the rigors of training. The last thing he needs is some tech geek holding them back from completing a dangerous, covert operation. In the following months, however, no one is more surprised than he when Babe, who hates to sweat, begins to thrive in her new environment, displaying a grit and courage that wins her the admiration of her hardened, battle-worn teammates. Whats even more surprising is that the usually very disciplined GO-team leader cant stop thinking about kissing her smart, stubborn mouthor the building chemistry and tension between them.Meanwhile, a powerful Congresswoman is working behind the scenes to destroy the GO-teams, and a trap is set to ambush Levis squad in Syria. While the rest of the operatives set off on their mission, Jina remains at the base to control the surveillance drone, when the base is suddenly attacked with explosives. Thought dead by her comrades, Jina escapes to the desert where, brutally tested beyond measure, she has to figure out how to stay undetected by the enemy and make it to her crew in time before theyre exfiltrated out of the country.But Levi never leaves a soldier behind, especially the brave woman hes fallen for. Hes bringing back the woman they left behind, dead or alive....

The Woman Left Behind (GO-Team #2) Reviews
The Woman Left Behind (GO-Team #2) by Linda Howard, was a very enjoyable story... predictable outcome, strong alpha male, take no shit heroine, action, sexual tension and some great humor (view spoiler)[She’d like to twist his dick off. And throw it out of the damn plane, a dick without a parachute, and see if he’d dive out after it..
Of course he would. Men would march through hell for their dicks. But wouldn’t it be funny if a hawk or something caught the falling dick and carried it off to be ...more
Yes, this story starts out a little slow. Yes, there is only some sex with just one couple. Yes, I loved this book anyway! I'm pretty sure there will be another book written to follow this story. I loved the character of Jina and Levi was just plain hot! PBJ tattoo..just hilarious :) If you are looking for romance then go somewhere else. No time for romance in a war zone. Plenty of action and a final "O Shit" moment....on to #3 please.
I've rated this a B- for AAR which is equal to 3.75 stars.
The Woman Left Behind is the best kind of romantic suspense in the sense that the heroine is no damsel in distress requiring rescue but neither is she a beefed up black-ops assassin as are found in so many female-empowered stories of this genre. Instead she's somewhere in between; she's basically tech support. Communications. But after scoring high on a spatial awareness test disguised as a video game, she and a few others from her depart ...more
The title should actually be 'The Woman Trained Hard'. Like REALLY hard - you should read more about her blisters and sore muscles, okay?
Linda Howard is one of my favorite authors. She always has a twisted suspense plot and a hot romance and "The Woman Left Behind" is no exception. The prologue starts with the baddie lamenting the death of her husband and vowing revenge against Axel MacNarhama. But, this book is not about this twisted plot of revenge, well not totally. Jina is a complicated character and prickly as all get out. Levi is one stone cold SOB, except when he smacks up against Jina. But, the Team comes first. Oh, the s ...more
4.25 ‘Babe’ stars 🌟
I don’t know how to write a review for this book 🤨
Er.... story of Snow White and Seven Dwarfs with a twist?
Only our Snow White actually is a nerd who had been forced to be a kick ass heroine to join a Special Forces Team, yeah instead of dwarfs, the guys all Tall, Dark and Handsome! 🙄😂
Hm.. yes the villain is a woman too! LOL.
So, half of the story more about her training with the guys how to qualify to be in their team.
I thought the book will be boring! LOL 😂
But hello, it’s a ...more
4 + STARS
So the story is a bit unbelievable.
The characters are too badass.
And the romance is too slow.
Does it deserve 5 stars?
But I enjoyed it so much that I can't not give it a bonus star.
Writing style: 4/5

This romantic suspense had lots of exciting action and big event near the end was powerful. The relationship was weak, mostly in main characters thoughts, however, I keep dwelling on this story so for me that compensates for the lack of romance. Jina is an office technical geek but so smart that the boss reassigns her to the field and team leader Levi must get her is top physical shape.
