WOLF HUNT by Paige TylerWolf Hunt by Paige Tyler
Series: SWAT #6
Published by Sourcebooks Genres: Paranormal

Dallas werewolf and SWAT officer Remy Boudreaux is back in his hometown of New Orleans for a week of training.  While showing his teammates around the French Quarter Remy smells the most tantalizing scent.  Resisting his primal urge to find the owner of the scent is futile.  He’s stunned to discover the owner is none other than his High School crush!

Triana Bellamy is shocked to run into Remy in a night club.  It’s a surprise she’s happy to explore.  Triana never expected to find trouble on her doorstep.  Triana is determined to discover the secret behind a wolf pendant that has landed her family in hot water.

Remy will do whatever it takes to protect Triana from the danger at her door.  Together they race against time to find the truth behind the pendant.  Will they find a lasting love in the process or will Triana run when she discovers Remy’s true nature?

Paige Tyler’s Wolf Hunt cranks out the sizzling suspense.

Remy and Triana scorch the pages with their undeniable attraction.  Wolf Hunt takes the reader out of Dallas and straight to NOLA.  It was so exciting to see our favorite characters maneuver in a city where they weren’t in charge.  I felt like I was back in NOLA while reading Tyler’s excellent depictions of the city.  It was such a treat.

Ms. Tyler manages to keep both of her shifter series innovative with riveting characters.  Remy and Triana manage to pull your heartstrings from page one.  Remy has a lot to overcome if he wants lasting love with Triana.  His emotional journey was beautiful.

I can’t get enough of Tyler’s SWAT and X-Ops series’! Keep them coming Ms. Tyler!

HER DARK HALF by Paige TylerHer Dark Half by Paige Tyler
Series: X-Ops #7
Published by Sourcebooks Genres: Paranormal


 

Her Dark Half is another game changer for Author Paige Tyler’s X-Ops series.

Ex-CIA Agent Alina Bosch has made a career of ferreting out crooked agents.  A tragedy hardened Alina and turned her into a skeptical person.  Alina’s new job at the Department of Covert Operations is much the same.  Her boss wants her to spy on her new partner.  Coyote shifter Trevor Maxwell is on the hunt for a killer.  A killer within the DCO’s upper echelon.  The last complication he needs is a new partner.

Her Dark Half is an exciting paranormal romance.  Trevor and Alina are filled with doubts but they are soon overtaken by their heady attraction.  As the X-Ops world gets bigger and more complex it makes the characters more tightknit.  Tyler keeps the story strong by including most of the previous characters in current storylines.  I like getting a front row seat in the lives of my favorite characters.  Tyler is amazing at keeping these past characters carefully woven into the current storyline.  Whereas, in most novels past characters pop in with simple updates but Tyler keeps her characters in the middle of the action.  The X-Ops characters are always intriguing, multi-layered, humorous and oh so sexy! Her Dark Half is a fast-paced thrill ride.  It left me breathless from the beginning.  I love that Alina is such a badass character.  Her serious demeanor is the perfect pairing with Trevor’s devil-may-care attitude.

HER TRUE MATCH by Paige TylerHer True Match by Paige Tyler
Series: X-Ops #6
Published by Sourcebooks Genres: Paranormal


 

 

Master thief Dreya Clark has landed in a mess she may not be able to get out of.  Instead of dealing with her usual sexy detective she is thrust into a world that might just get her killed.  But if she wants to remain “free” she must use her talents as an agent for the Department of Covert Operations.

Detective Braden Hayes has been chasing Dreya’s tail for a while now and he isn’t going to let her slip through his fingers.  He’s not about to let two goons he doesn’t trust take her from him.  What Braden doesn’t realize is Dreya’s a feline shifter and his world is about to get much bigger and scarier.  Braden soon finds himself a member of the DCO and partnered with Dreya.  Will the former enemies find a way to work together before the danger lurking in the shadows finds them?

Her True Match can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading the series in order for maximum enjoyment.

Dreya and Braden first appear in Her Rogue Alpha.  I completely fell in love with them both while reading that story.  It’s impossible not to fall for spunky thief Dreya as she steals something precious from the evil Thomas Thorn or the tenacious Detective Hayes as he hunts her down.

The conspiracies grow as Author Paige Tyler takes us back into the X-Ops world with Her True Match.

Tyler continues to give her readers impressive characters to love and root for.  Dreya and Braden are the first couple that has been pulled into the DCO.  In previous books one of the characters is usually already affiliated with the DCO.  I enjoyed this fresh change in dynamics.  Both characters were forced to learn everything about each other and their new world together.  I love how Dreya and Braden support each other as they maneuver their new world.

Tyler gives us another strong story featuring intense action and compelling characters…oh and she brings the sizzle as always.  Ms. Tyler is lucky I love Dreya and Braden so much that I’m willing to forgive her for the OMG cliffhanger at the end!  It’s a doozy folks you’ve been forewarned.

If you love exceptional paranormal romance then Tyler’s Her True Match is for you.

WILD RIDE by Julie Ann WalkerWild Ride by Julie Ann Walker
Series: Black Knights Inc. #9
Published by Sourcebooks Genres: Contemporary, Suspense


 

Julie Ann Walker finally gives fans the book they have been waiting impatiently for featuring beloved hero Ethan “Ozzie” Sykes.  Wild Ride is well, a Wild Ride from start to finish.  Ozzie has always been the sarcastic, funny guy with a heart of gold.  He has appealed to me and many others since the beginning of the Black Knight’s Inc. series.  Wild Ride is book nine so it’s been a bit of a wait and well worth it. Reporter Samantha Tate is the perfect woman to wrangle Ozzie and steal his heart.  I love books where the hero and heroine have chemistry in the bedroom and these two do but what I like more is their humorous yet serious banter.

Ozzie and Samantha are both dedicated to their jobs and unfortunately that puts them at odds since Ozzie is supposed to keep Samantha from discovering the real work Black Knight’s Inc. does.  Thankfully, life sometimes forces people to confront their feelings and evaluate what is important in life.

Samantha is hysterically funny at the beginning when she…I don’t want to give anything away so I will just say she is electrifyingly determined to save her own butt. Ms. Walker knows how to throw her characters into a serious situation and make it funny without losing the intensity in Wild Ride.

The suspense plot in Wild Ride is great but the exploration of Ozzie and Samantha’s interpersonal relationship steals the show. Wild Ride has the right stuff! Wild Ride is a hold on to the seat of your pants and your heart read!  Walker can always be counted on to keep you entertained throughout her books and keep you coming back for more.  Nine books down in the Black Knight’s Inc. series and I for one am looking forward to more.

ROCK STEADY by Dawn RyderRock Steady by Dawn Ryder
Series: Rock Band #2
Published by Sourcebooks Genres: Contemporary


 

I haven’t read much of Dawn Ryder’s work but I just recently started her Unbroken Heroes series and loved it so I wanted to try her Rock Band series. Rock Steady is the second book in the series and I haven’t read the previous one, but I didn’t fall in love with Rock Steady like I hoped I would.

 

If you’ve read the previous book, Rock Me Two Times, you are familiar with the characters, but it if you are like me and starting in the middle you are just getting to know everyone for the first time. I have to say I had a hard time warming up to them and actually understanding them. In this story we meet Ramsey who comes off as god’s gift to women. He gets drunk and sleeps with a groupie only to discover she got back at him by taking him to get a tattoo of cherry blossoms. To me this sounded a little far-fetched, I mean could it could happen? Sure, anything is possible but getting a tattoo would sure as hell sober me up pretty fast.

 

After the whole getting the tattoo thing he meets up with the rest of his band, Toxsin and they agree he needs to get it fixed as soon as possible (duh) and they look for a tattoo shop that is open twenty four hours and there Ramsey meets Jewel, who will be his tattoo artist.

 

Jewel went to college and graduated with a marketing degree but she loves art so she is working in a tattoo shop. She is damn good at what she does, but her boss has a say so in what jobs she takes. When the band walks in the shop looking for someone to cover up the cherry blossoms on Ramsey, Jewel takes the job and covers it up with a bad ass tattoo. The next day her boss lets her go because he is jealous that she did the tattoo and didn’t call him which totally pissed me off but she gets a better opportunity. Ramsey offers her to go on tour with him and the band to expand the tattoo over the next four weeks and Jewel agrees. Sparks start flying between them, but Jewel is hesitant to get involved with Ramsey because of his reputation.

 

Honestly, this characters or the storyline did nothing for me. I didn’t understand them or their way of handling things. One minute Ramsey is a total womanizer and then the next he acts like a savior. His personalities were giving me whiplash through the entire story. Jewel I found a little on the annoying side, but I did appreciate her characters fire and drive to want to be the best and make it on her own no matter the cost.

 

As far as the Rock Band series goes I think I will have to pass on the upcoming books and stick with the Unbroken Heroes series. I may not have totally fell in love with Rock Steady but that doesn’t mean others won’t.
