When Special Forces Captain Landon Donovan is picked for an assignment with the Department of Covert Affairs, he’s stunned to find his new partner is a beautiful woman who looks like she couldn’t hurt a fly, much less take down a terrorist.
Ivy Halliwell isn’t your average covert op. Her feline DNA means she can literally bring out the claws when things get dicey. She isn’t thrilled to be paired with yet another military grunt, but Landon is different. He doesn’t think she’s a freak and he’s smokin’ hot.
Soon they find themselves facing a threat even greater than anyone imagines...and an animal magnetism impossible to ignore.
Ivy Halliwell has had really bad luck when it’s come to partners while working in the Department of Covert Affairs. One attacked her and tried to rape her and the other thought she was useless and got himself killed by ignoring her skills. When Ivy meets her new partner, Landon Donovan, she’s not sure what will happen but she knows that he’s one gorgeous man.
Landon is taken from the middle of a Special Forces operation and taken to a location where he’s told this is where he’d now be working. To say that he’s not happy about it is an understatement but he tries to go with the flow as best he can to see what’s up before he puts up too much of a stink. He meets his new partner, Ivy, and when they tell him to fight her put her on the floor he thinks it’s going to be child’s play. He doesn’t realize that she’s a shifter and has extraordinary strength and skills. He’s impressed as well as a bit smitten. Ivy is gorgeous and it’s work not to show everyone the sexual thoughts he’s having.
They train for only a day together before they're thrown into a live operation – which is unheard of. They work well together but Ivy seems to have a bit of a control issue with her animal taking over. They manage to get through it and are then given another assignment. Find out what’s going on with disappearing scientists. They find more than they bargain for and end up falling upon a medial experiment that could threaten humans all over the globe.
While this is happening, Ivy and Landon finally decide that they can’t stay away from each other and figure out that it’s not just sex but so much more between the two of them. If they can stay alive they may have a chance to be together.
This was a really entertaining book! I wasn’t sure what to expect but what I found was an intriguing, well written story, a great little romance, and enough action to keep my eyes stuck on the pages.
I liked both Ivy and Landon and loved them together. I must say that I was a little confused that Landon didn’t react more to the news that Ivy was a shifter, but I guess being in Special Forces he’d seen his fair share of odd things. I loved his SF team as well. The team meets Ivy and Landon when they’re in town and the camaraderie between them all worked for me.
The story about the scientists was interesting and exciting. The romance was definitely an HEA but the ongoing story with the scientists was left open. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
