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.
HER TRUE MATCH is another fast paced, action-filled and entertaining addition to the X-Ops series. Time is running out on the team to find what they need to expose a conspiracy at the DCO and the newest team members may be the ones to help with that.
A cat burglar and a police detective are an unusual pairing, but Dreya Clark isn’t your everyday cat burglar. She needs the challenge to keep her shifter half sane, and her extraordinary abilities have ensured both a successful stint and kept her out of jail, but detective Braden Hayes is very determined to end her lucky streak.
The cat and mouse game Dreya and Braden have been involved in has built an unexpected bond of trust between them, one that comes in handy when they both get drafted as new agents to the DCO and have to go on assignment immediately. Dreya isn’t very trusting of anyone, which is why her easy acceptance of Braden is such a big deal, and Braden is a by-the-book cop, with reason, so following his instincts when it comes to Dreya is out of character for him.
Both characters were easygoing and likable, with little drama between them. Dreya is smart and sassy and very independent. Braden is a rule follower and very good at his job, but also a really great guy who’s compassionate and protective. His easy acceptance of her is a huge point in his favor and the chemistry between them is so hot. The only point of conflict between them was their approach to their assignment. Dreya flies by the seat of her pants while Braden prefers caution, so they need to find a middle ground or their first assignment could also be their last.
I have enjoyed every book of Ms. Tyler’s I’ve read so far and this is no different. It builds on the story-line from the first book and I have to say that I can’t wait for the next installment especially because of the way this one ended. This is not my favorite book in the series because Dreya and Braden’s relationship didn’t have the explosive chemistry of others before it, but the suspense and intrigue at the DCO always has me on edge, so it’s still a great read overall and I will strongly recommend reading the series in order, to enjoy it.
