After a long game of cat-and-mouse

Feline shifter Dreya Clark picks the wrong penthouse to rob and ends up arrested by sexy detective Braden Hayes. But Braden isn’t the only one who’s been watching the cat burglar. Agents from the Department of Covert Operations swoop in to offer her a deal. If she wants to stay out of jail, she’ll have to work with them—and pair up with the hot cop. Great.

Danger throws this unlikely pair together

Braden isn’t thrilled about the DCO meddling in his investigation. He’s been chasing Dreya for years. Thrown together on a dangerous covert mission, fur flies and temperatures flare. But when danger closes in on them, their game of cat and mouse turns deadly-serious, and they’ll have to rely on each other to make it out alive.

My Rating:  4.5 stars

Another excellent addition to the paranormal, secret X-Ops series.  We’ll continue with ongoing threats and add some new to the mix as well.  I must mention up front that this is a series that really needs to be read in order – yes, you can jump in and enjoy the story, but you’ll miss how the teams, the characters got to this point.  And that is indeed a very exciting, engaging journey that shouldn’t be missed.  In my opinion.

Her True Match will reunite us with Dreya who we met in the previous novel.  Dreya is a cat burglar, no really she’s a shifter who has no clue exactly what shifters are.  She’s spent her entire life with the enhanced senses and abilities of a shifter feeling like she’s a bit crazy.  With no guidance on how to deal with her dual personality, she’s not really in tune with her cat – only when those abilities are needed.  But it certainly does help with her profession, even if it is on the opposite side of the law.

Braden has been on Dreya’s trail for some time now.  When he finally gets the minx in his official law abiding hands some secret, so called “Feds” show up to sweep his prize away.  No way that’s happening on his case.  When he sets out to follow them and figure out exactly what these people are really up to, he’s in for an eye opening surprise.

Neither Dreya or Braden ever expected what they discovered about those “Feds” or about what lies just beyond most of our senses or knowledge.  There is a completely hidden world of danger, evil and others that should not, but do exist.  When they are, let’s say, recruited into the operation, Braden and Dreya  will discover not only the bad guys but just how right they are as partners… in more than the official capacity.

There are a lot of threads woven throughout this series.  Some will move further along, new ones will be introduced.  We’ll get the chance to catch up with some old friends and watch a new romantic and profession partnership blossom under dangerous conditions.

I have yet to meet a Paige Tyler story, no matter what series, that I didn’t enjoy and love.  Her True Match is a fast paced, gripping ride through danger, new knowledge and finding that simply right place in the world – with the one you love, and with people who ‘get’ you and welcome you with open arms.

If you are a fan of Romantic Suspense mixed in with a Paranormal Romance and some military operations tossed in as well – then you’ll love this story and this series.  I’d highly recommend Her True Match and encourage anyone who is just discovering this series to go back and read the rest.
