Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

As Tyler launches the X-Ops series, Special Forces captain Landon Donovan is abruptly assigned to a politically controversial, secret Homeland Security unit that pairs humans with shifters, part-animal counterparts carrying natural genetic mutations. His new and gorgeous partner, Ivy Halliwell, is part cat, has lost two previous partners and is now known as “Poison Ivy.” Despite this, she and Landon not only work well together but give in to a fierce sexual attraction and fall in love. Before this can complicate their work lives, though, they are sent to catch an evil German scientist who is kidnapping biologists. Ivy is captured during their raid, and Donovan calls on his former special ops team and another shifter in their unit to help rescue her and kill the bad guys. But two of those escape with samples of her blood, paving the way for the next X-Ops installment. This is an action-packed, sensual genre-blend of military and paranormal romance with appeal for readers of both. The explicit sex scenes, while limited in number, show the influence of erotica on both subgenres. --Mary K. Chelton

I love how Landon accepted Ivy for who she was right from the start.
In most reads you have a super hot hot Alpha male so drool worthy you don’t want to put your read down.
Anna-Marie Buchner
It was a wonderful blend of Paranormal Romance, Military, and Romantic Suspense elements.

A spec-ops shifter heroine newly paired with a Special Forces hero for a hidden government agency who must learn to work together, trust each other and keep it strictly business just sounded like my kind of fun so I had to read it. This series opener really delivered too. Scenes just sparkled when these two main characters were present and I loved the action elements as much as the romance in this military-style paranormal.

The story opens with Ivy Halliwell losing her latest partner on a covert mission because he couldn't accept what she was and wouldn't work with her as a team. The scene changes to introduce Special Forces Captain Landon Donovan and his Special Forces team ready to take out one of the big baddies of terrorism. Without explanation he is pulled off his team and shipped out to DC to be transferred to a secret agency. He is given a new partner and a new job. The only thing he is told is that he is the back-up and it's his job to take out his partner if the partner falls into the hands of the enemy. Landon isn't wired that way and he really isn't wired for what they ask him to do next which is to attack and take-down the woman he is introduced to as his partner.

Ivy is disappointed to discover that she has been assigned yet another he-man soldier who will be just like the rest and won't treat her skills with respect because she's a woman and be disgusted that she's a shifter. Her assumptions are rocked from the moment they engage in training when Landon fights well, but not to overpower her with strength, he respects her as his partner, accepts her shifter gifts and her fighting skills, he won't listen to gossip about her, and he seems to have her back.

What an adventure! HER PERFECT MATE, book 1 of Paige Tyler's X-Ops series is perfecto! Mad scientists, a hunky and dorky male, sexy as sin feline heroine, testosterone and pheromones scenting the air, exciting chases and fights, furniture breaking smex, WHAT MORE CAN I ASK FOR?!

Paige Tyler pretty much summed up the series and shared bits and pieces about HER PERFECT MATE so I'll go to the highlights and make this quick. All I can do right now is gush, I loved everything about this novel and it's perfect balance of romance, action and urban fantasy. Captain Landon Donovan is so dreamy! He's every bit of an Alpha male and despite being human, he is not intimidated by Ivy and other shifters like her. He has respect for them but more importantly, he is aware of his own set of skills and limitations which makes him level headed and an excellent warrior. And the best thing about Landon is his sense of humor! Good gawd he made me LOL over his cat jokes directed towards Ivy, good thing our ferocious feline is game and didn't take things personally.

On to our heroine. Since the TV show, Charmed, I've developed feelings of endearment towards the name, Halliwell, so Ivy Halliwell already has points on my book just for her name alone. Happy to report that she didn't sully the name because not only is Ivy drop-dead gorgeous like the infamous super witch sisters from San Francisco, she's an amazing fighter and very grounded too. Ivy didn't have a chip on her shoulder because of her feline qualities and wasn't snarky which was surprisingly refreshing for an urban fantasy heroine.

Take a Special Force Marine add a feline shifter and you have the “perfect” team. Landon and Ivy must learn to work together and trust each other while working for a special government organization while not giving in to the chemistry they feel for each other.

Landon was pulled from his team and sent back to DC to pair with Ivy to combat terrorism in the US. He is told to learn to work with Ivy and should she be comprised he is to eliminate her. This is not Landon's way, as a Marine you never leave anyone behind.

Ivy feels all military men are macho and have no respect for women. When she finds out she has been paired with Landon she is sure he will be just like all the rest. Imagine her surprise when not only does he accept her as a feline shifter, but the chemistry is wild. Has she found her perfect partner?

Get a copy today and find how Landon and Ivy come together with a little help from Landon's Special Op's group. You won't be disappointed. Looking forward to many more in this series. Kudos to Paige Tyler for another winner.

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.


What an exciting new book in this brand new series!

I have read Ms. Tyler's work before and thoroughly enjoyed it, but this has to be my new favorite of her works.

In my opinion, she has blended the paranormal with the contemporary. The basis of the story is that the Department of Homeland Security is the parent of this super secret, covert operation labeled the DCO. In this secret division human agents are paired with shifters to go on covert operations. Ivy is a cat shifter, now the shifters don't actually turn into an animal but tap into parts of the animal that is part of their DNA. I like Ivy she is strong, but is also vulnerable. She and the other shifters are not liked by some of their co-workers. Plus, Ivy has had two bad pairings, but one of her bosses Kendra has come up with a "compatibility" program and it selects Landon as her "Perfect Partner", or mate as the case may be. Landon is a Special Forces Captain who is pulled from the field to work with Ivy. Landon is a perfect for her and Wow is he yummy!
