“As Declan watched, she dropped the magazine, checked to see how many rounds were left in it, then expertly reloaded the weapon and eyeballed the ejection port to make sure a round was chambered. Then she took it a step further and searched the man’s body for extra magazines and ammo.”

Kendra’s Jungle Survival Tip: If you don't know how to use a weapon, don't pick it up.

Back Cover Blurb:

Department of Covert Operations Training Officer Kendra Carlsen has been begging her boss to let her go into the field for years. When he finally agrees to send her along on a training exercise in Costa Rica, she’s thrilled.

Bear-shifter Declan MacBride, on the other hand, is anything but pleased. He’s been crushing on Kendra since he started working at the DOC seven years ago. Spending two weeks in the same jungle with her is putting a serious strain on him.

When the team gets ambushed, Kendra and Declan are forced to depend on each other. But the bear-shifter soon discovers that fighting bloodthirsty enemies isn’t nearly as hard as fighting his attraction to the beautiful woman he’ll do anything to protect.

My Review:

What a rush! Tyler’s vivid action scenes put you in the middle of the battle. I could see and feel it all. The chemistry between the main characters leads to scenes that will make you sizzle. Tyler has created an intricate and well-crafted story. She recaps what happened previously in the series, reminding returning readers where everything stands and allowing new ones to play catch-up. Tyler doesn’t continuously rehash the same details and events over and over. Readers live the events with the characters once, the first time, and then that’s it unless it adds something new to the story.

Tyler develops the type of characters that you find yourself talking to and rooting for. I love how Declan combines his human and animal halves. He’s never one or the other. His self-doubt humanizes him in a very real way. I couldn’t help but fall more and more in love with him throughout the course of the novel. Kendra was a gem to get to know. Her need to prove herself and her ability to admit when she’s wrong is only topped by her amazing skills in the field. The intertwining stories of the other characters in the novels give readers a real world, real time view of everything that’s going on. You get the ‘big picture’, so to speak, while also getting to know our main couple’s friends and family. She develops her shifters in a realistic light that allows you to picture the story actually taking place in the world around you. Not only that, but the biological implications behind this story astounding. I could just imagine scientists trying to achieve this.

This was an unforgettable, fast paced novel that I couldn’t put down. It’s definitely one that will be read time & time again. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to any lovers of the paranormal. I will warn you however, you’ll be dying for the next novel after you’ve read this one. I’m already counting down the days!
