The first book in Tara Wyatt's Bodyguard series, Necessary Risk, was a great surprise for me when I read it a few months ago. In Primal Instinct, Tara Wyatt continues to show her skill at writing great searing romance with elements of suspense mixed in.
Taylor Ross takes center stage in this book. As a recap, Taylor is Sierra Blake's best friend and was romantically involved with one of the Virtus team in Necessary Risk. Fast forward about a year after events in the first book, and Taylor has found herself dealing with a broken heart as well as an aeful case of writer's block. Going through this rough patch has caused Taylor to make some not-too-great decisions and she's been getting some bad press lately.
Trying to keep her focused on working on a new album, Taylor's label decides to hire bodyguards to keep the singer out of trouble. No one is more surprised than Taylor when her former one night stand Colt Priestley shows up as one of her bodyguards.
Colt felt a connection with Taylor the moment they met. He would have been more than happy to make their one night into multiple nights, but Taylor ran away. When his job in freelance security offers him the opportunity to reconnect with Taylor he takes it. Not only will Taylor and Colt have to deal with their undeniable attraction to each other, but also the threat to Taylor's life as a deranged stalker sets his sights on the star.
I immediately warmed to Taylor and Colt quicker than I did to Sierra and Sean. I loved the playfulness in their characters towards one another. There was a lot of humor and camaraderie between them as they navigate the early stages of their attraction. I laughed quite a few times at the antics they pull on one another.
At first, I had assumed Tara Wyatt would have our hero be another member of the Vitrus team. Colt is connected in the way that he was fired from Vitrus after he made some bad decisions on a job that resulted in Sean getting severely injured. It took a second for me to remember the incident and make the connection, but once I did, I liked that Tara Wyatt didn't do the typical thing and automatically make this second book about another member of the team right off the bat.
As with the first book, Primal Instinct is filled with particularly nasty bad guys. I almost felt like Taylor found herself entwined in too much. Besides the stalker, Taylor find herself in the cross-hairs of a biker gang who are in trouble themselves with a major bigwig in the crime business. I don't want to give too much away so I'm being a little vague about it. Suffice it to say, I can clearly understand that certain things / people are brought into the story as part of the bigger picture of the series as a whole so I can forgive the almost bombardment of baddies. I just felt like some things were too coincidental.
None of my reservations, however, ruined anything for me about the story. The growing relationship between Colt and Taylor kept me turning the pages. They both have a lot of bad things in their pasts that they need to work through in order to move on in the future and in order to have a relationship. That human connection was what really drew me in to this book and these characters.
This has been another really strong book from Tara Wyatt. There's some things hinted towards the end as to what we might be able to expect from the next book. Whatever comes in to play, I'm looking forward to it.
Taylor Ross is a reformed bad girl with a sassy attitude which works well for her. Taylor is currently trying to write a new album which is just not working out for her very well. While trying to come up with lyrics at a bar, she meets Colt and decides a one night stand may help her writers block. Just like Colt, she too has issues in her past that influence all of her decisions. She is not quite ready for a man like Colt but is going to be spending a lot of time with him as her was just hired to be her new bodyguard.
Between the creepy stalker, Taylor’s dangerous father, Colt’s past and nightmares, this is going to be one bumpy ride.
The prank war! The greatest part of the book!! I know Taylor and Colt’s relationship changed over the course of the book but the pranks should have continued!
Taylor and Colt really worked as a couple. Taylor was down to earth and Colt was just a little cocky but they really meshed well together. Their pasts really played into their relationship as they had an understanding for each other. And the sex….WOW!
Primal Instinct was a page turner and I enjoyed this story and finished this book in one sitting. It is not necessary to read book #1 in the series to understand what is going on with this couple. However, I will be checking out Necessary Risk, the first book in this series. I have definitely found a new author in Tara Wyatt!
