Review: Her Perfect Mate
Her Perfect Mate by Paige Tyler
4.5 out of 5 Licks
When Special Forces Captain Landon Donovan is picked for an assignment with the Department of Covert Affairs, he’s stunned to find his new partner is a beautiful woman who looks like she couldn’t hurt a fly, much less take down a terrorist.
Ivy Halliwell isn’t your average covert op. Her feline DNA means she can literally bring out the claws when things get dicey. She isn’t thrilled to be paired with yet another military grunt, but Landon is different. He doesn’t think she’s a freak and he’s smokin’ hot.
Soon they find themselves facing a threat even greater than anyone imagines…and an animal magnetism impossible to ignore.
What an exciting new book in this brand new series!
I have read Ms. Tyler’s work before and thoroughly enjoyed it, but this has to be my new favorite of her works.
In my opinion, she has blended the paranormal with the contemporary. The basis of the story is that the Department of Homeland Security is the parent of this super secret, covert operation labeled the DCO. In this secret division human agents are paired with shifters to go on covert operations. Ivy is a cat shifter, now the shifters don’t actually turn into an animal but tap into parts of the animal that is part of their DNA. I like Ivy she is strong, but is also vulnerable. She and the other shifters are not liked by some of their co-workers. Plus, Ivy has had two bad pairings, but one of her bosses Kendra has come up with a “compatibility” program and it selects Landon as her “Perfect Partner”, or mate as the case may be. Landon is a Special Forces Captain who is pulled from the field to work with Ivy. Landon is a perfect for her and Wow is he yummy! They immediately hit it off and become a great working team, that trusts each other. The mission they are sent out on tests their budding relationship both on and off missions. My only caveat is that it was pretty easy for me to figure out what the bad guys were up to.
I really enjoyed this book, it was well written, full of characters who were both convincingly good and bad and at the heart of it two main characters who are super sexy and rockin’ action heroes. I finished this book in one setting and now I have to wait to read more…ugh
