Review: Her Perfect Mate by Paige Tyler

Book Description

"Absolutely perfect. One of the best books I've read in years. I definitely want more of Paige Tyler's shifters."-Kate Douglas, bestselling author of the Wolf Tales series.

He's a High-Octane Special Ops Pro
When Special Forces Captain Landon Donovan is pulled from an op in Afghanistan, he is surprised to discover he's been hand-picked for a special assignment with the Department of Covert Operations (DCO), a secret division he's never heard of. Terrorists are kidnapping biologists and he and his partner have to stop them. But his new partner is a beautiful, sexy woman who looks like she couldn't hurt a fly-never mind take down a terrorist.

She's Not Your Average Covert Operative
Ivy Halliwell is no kitten. She's a feline shifter, and more dangerous than she looks. She's worked with a string of hotheaded military guys who've underestimated her special skills in the past. But when she's partnered with special agent Donovan, a man sexy enough to make any girl purr, things begin to heat up...

My Review

The action starts off right away in this book. We find Ivy on an OP where her partner, Dave is killed because he had a problem working with her because she was a shifter. He got what he deserved in my opinion. He should have listened to her and if he had, he'd probably still be alive. She's had a couple of bad partners so she's a little gun shy.

A couple of months later we meet Landon in the middle of a mission and out of the blue he's transferred and he's not happy about it. That's when he meets his new partner, Ivy. After their training they are sent on a mission and it goes well so they are sent to try and find out who is kidnapping biologists and stop them. 

The story was full of intrigue, action, fight scenes and a few really kick ass men and women who know how to get the job done when asked. When we finally find out why the biologists are being kidnapped, it was an interesting twist to this story. I really like all the military type scenes going on in a paranormal type story. Landon and Ivy try to fight their attraction for each other but there's no getting around that when you're working so closely together and when they do finally come together, it's smoking hot! Whew, these two tear up the sheets, quite literally and they are great together. 

The only problem I had with this story was the fact that when Landon finds out that she's a shifter it doesn't seem to faze him at all. I found that hard to believe. I think most anyone would be a little shocked at first. But this is a great beginning to a series and I'm looking forward to reading more of this series in the future.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
