The first time he lays eyes on Taylor Ross in a bar, Colt Priestley does something few men would dare to do. He approaches the world-famous singer, shamelessly flirts with her, and gives her a night in his bed that neither of them will soon forget.


When Taylor’s record label hires a bodyguard to keep tabs on the out-of-control rocker, she’s less than thrilled to find it’s her off-the-charts one-night stand who shows up for the job. She’s terrified of letting herself fall for the damaged ex-Army Ranger, and she’s determined to push him away. Yet every moment they’re together simmers with tension. As the danger from an obsessed stalker mounts, Taylor and Colt are tempted to cross that line again-baring their hearts and souls as well as their bodies-and there’s no telling how hot this song will get.



I enjoyed Necessary Risk and thought it was a great debut, but Ms. Wyatt does even better with Primal Instinct. She amps up the passion, suspense and humor in this second installment of the series and I just want to get my hands on the next right now! PS: this book should come with an NSFW label because of the heat factor.

Taylor Ross isn’t having the best of times lately. Heartbroken from being dumped by the man she was falling for, her escapades have become tabloid fodder and in a last chance bid to keep her focused on her music, her record label hires her a bodyguard. Much to her dismay, her new bodyguard is the man she had just spent the previous night with, the man she ran away from after a night of pleasure and she’s determined not to fall for him.

Colt Priestley is so much more than the screw-up we met in the previous book. After being fired from his previous job, he became a freelancer and while he knows that he shouldn’t take the job as Taylor’s bodyguard because his objectivity has been compromised, he can’t let anyone else protect her. Which turns out to be a good decision because Taylor has got more problems than the delay with her upcoming album and there is no better person she needs in her corner than one who is as invested in her as Colt is.

Wow! There is so much to love here. Taylor and Colt actually have taken Sierra and Sean’s spot in my heart, which is surprising because Colt wasn’t such a stand-up guy previously. I love that they both enjoyed life with no holds barred and no apologies. Falling for each other is unexpected but the best thing to happen to them. Both have been lonely for some time and they fill the emptiness in each other’s life completely, but they also enjoy each other’s company outside the bedroom and the pranks they played on each other had me laughing so hard, but my favorite thing about them has to be that they had each other’s backs completely and even when things weren’t so good with them, Colt was still invested in Taylor’s well-being.

Primal Instinct is a fun, sexy and suspenseful read that should make everyone’s reading list this summer.
