HE LEFT TO KEEP HER SAFE
Believing he’s too dangerous to be among people, feline hybrid Tanner Howland retreats deep into the forests of Washington State—with no choice but to leave behind the woman who’s captured his heart. What he doesn’t know is that she followed him…

SHE WOULDN’T STAY BEHIND
Heartbroken and determined, Dr. Zarina Sokolov tracks Tanner into the wild. Her presence unleashes Tanner’s protective instinct—big time. Locals have been disappearing and he is desperate for Zarina to leave. As the kidnappings escalate, Tanner must embrace the dangerous instincts he fears so much. But with Zarina at his side, he’ll have to learn to control his animal impulses, or lose himself—and the woman he loves—to the beast within.

My Rating:  4.5 stars

In every long, on going series there comes a story that is a game changer.  For me, that book is X-Ops Exposed.  While there will be some answers, there are far more questions and complications from Tanner and Zarina’s story.  Mainly because it’s not just their story, this time our attention is split between the West coast and the East coast with events that will change so much about this world and for its inhabitants.  I have always believed that this is a series best read in order, and now more so than ever.

I love this world that Paige Tyler has built.  It simply gets better, more complicated and complex, and it keeps growing with each new story added.  Now it’s about to explode and I cannot wait to see where we go next.  We’ll get some closure, we’ll also get brand new troubles and new characters to fold into this world.  The action is fast paced, a bit snarky and bitey at times (as always).  Watching Tanner and Zarina together is pure enjoyment.  These two have come a long way to get to the now and even with its complications I’m loving where they are at this point.  Expect some surprises, some twists and turns that will matter and may change things, a lot.

While I’ve been somewhat vague because I believe you need to experience this story firsthand – I would highly recommend X-Ops Exposed and the entire series to any Paranormal Romance or Romantic Suspense reader.  Fast paced, hot and heavy action, questions answered and more asked, lively characters, an intriguing plot and characters you will come to care about.  What’s not to love about all that?

*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
