TRUST HAS TO BE EARNED
• Coyote shifter with an attitude
• Covert operator
• Trusts no one, especially his devastatingly beautiful new partner
• Former CIA, newest operative on the covert team
• Hired to spy on her partner
• Motto: “Never be deceived again.”
As Trevor and Alina risk their lives together to hunt down a murderer bent on destroying all shifters, their survival depends on each other’s deepest strength and vulnerabilities . . .
Well, I have to admit: the X-OPS series kind of grows on you. Where I kind of liked Her Rogue Alpha, I was getting excited with Her True Match, but Her Dark Half just topped it. What I like best about this book is Alina. She’s a strong, independent woman with serious trust issues. Not that you can blame her, after being nearly blown away during a covert CIA mission because of the betrayal of one of her team members. And holding your dearest colleague while she dies in your arms in the same day will leave some scars.
So when she gets a chance to help discover a traitor in the DCO team, she dives head first into the challenge. Little did she know that this supposed traitor was a hunky shifter guy, with a serious grudge. Meet Trevor Maxwell, coyote shifter with a temper. He is sure the assassination of his former DCO boss was an inside job. And he is quite convinced that someone at the top is pulling the strings. So when his is saddled with a new partner, he is convinced she is hired to lure him out.
But although their heads are telling them to mistrust the other, they can’t deny the physical attraction. When not only sparks, but also bullets are flying, it is time to decide whom to trust. Will these partners cover each others back? Or will they turn on each other?
Find out in this very adventurous episode of X-OPS. Four out of five stars from me. And a special thank you to Netgalley and Casablanca books for the arc. And keep your eye out for Wolf Hunger, #7 in the SWAT series of Paige Tyler. Absolute yummie wolfs!
