She’s being recruited for her shifter abilities by the Department of Covert Operations.

There’s no way he’ll let her go off alone. Fur flies and temperatures flare as Braden realizes Dreya is much more than she appears. Thrown together on a dangerous covert mission, this unlikely pair will have to rely on each other to make it out alive.

Her True Match (coming March 2017)
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Published: March 2017
Her True Match was the second X-OPS book I’ve read. The first one for me was Her Rogue Alpha. That book I found rather ‘tame’, in comparison to the SWAT series of Paige Tyler. But since I had my shot of yummie werewolfs recently in Wolf Unleashed, I decided to take another shot at the X-OPS series. And boy, was I glad to have gotten my hands on this one! Dreya Clark is a feline shifter. However, growing up alone, she thinks herself a freak of nature with her claws and her scary green eyes. Since she doesn’t know that there are more of her kind out there, she is sure there is no way any guy will be interested in her. Instead, she thrives on stealing and breaking and entering homes.
Officer Braden Hayes has his eyes set on her for some time now. And not only because he wants to get her redhanded, but also because he likes the tension between them during interrogations, where Dreya stands her ground and is able to get away with most of her crimes.
So sparks are flying. But how can an abiding law officer and a cat burglar get together? When de Department of Covert Operations sweeps in, after Braden has arrested Dreya, how far will Braden go, to ensure Dreya’s safety?
The story unfolds nicely, where we meet ‘old’ acquaintances of the other X-OPS books. And we see how there is also a second plot, in which shifters are created in a scary lab. The secondary characters, Brooklyn, Trevor and Ian, are also very interesting. Hopefully, they will get their ‘own’ story in the next books of the series.
So, it’s safe to say, that the shifters of the X-OPS series kind of grow on you! Four out of five stars from me.With a special thank you to Sourcebooks Casablanca and Netgalley for this ARC.
