Dreya Clark,  while out on a run of theft from the high end rich, she is caught red handed by none other than the one man that somehow keeps tracking her, Braden Hayes. Braden is a police detective, and even though he is slightly amused by her antics, he also feels duty bound to arrest her since he has caught her in the act and has evidence of it, evidence that could prove that she is slightly more than huma

I'm quite a fan of this authors work as she manages to combine steamy romance with suspense that has an almost military edge. These books about the shifters working within the DCA have had a storyline developing throughout that has so many layers that it's fascinating to read how much of it actually comes to glorious fruition in this book . The thread concerning corrupt politicians and evil medics creating hybrids is well and truly into its stride and as we catch up with old friends we start to ...more

I absolutely love Paige Tyler and both of her series, X-Ops and SWAT.

This installment of X-Ops was just as amazing as the others, we find Dreya and Braden coming together in the strangest of circumstances - the thief and the policeman!

Loved the storyline, loved how this amazing couple came together - but what I did not expect was a complete change in the story at the end of the book!!! WOW!!!

I've been wanting to read Dreya and Braden's romance since they appeared in an earlier X-Ops story, and am delighted with how this story plays out! Braden has kept his eye out for Dreya since their first meeting and when he catches her on a break and enter gig, he is torn over what to do with her. Luckily, the Department of Covert Operations has their own plans for Dreya and she becomes a trainee for them, using her feline shifter talents to become one of the good guys, with Braden hot on her he ...more

HER TRUE MATCH is another fast paced, action-filled and entertaining addition to the X-Ops series. Time is running out on the team to find what they need to expose a conspiracy at the DCO and the newest team members may be the ones to help with that.

A cat burglar and a police detective are an unusual pairing, but Dreya Clark isn't your everyday cat burglar. She needs the challenge to keep her shifter half sane, and her extraordinary abilities have ensured both a successful stint and kept her out
The latest installment in the exciting X-Ops series picks up on the tail of the story before it with a pair I was intrigued by when they were introduced in book five. The cat burglar- emphasis on cat- and the cop. Yeah, that was a fun idea for a romance, but the suspense as the group seeks to track down the evidence against powerful ex-senator Thorne and his cronies added the excitement.

This series works best read in order as the X-Ops world is explained earlier and an ongoing suspense thread we

"Her True Match" is another great book in the 'X-Ops' series with Braden the cop and Dreya the cat burglar. We met them only briefly in the previous book, 'Her Rogue Alpha'. Braden has been trying to catch her for a long time, and when he does, they are both recruited into DCO (Department of Covert Operations) for some real undercover cat burglar work. There we meet some familiar faces in the DCO from previous stories, but the main focus is on Braden and Dreya and their current mission. DCO fami ...more

I was so glad to read Dreya and Braden's story and pairing them together was perfect! Dreya has been a "cat" burglar for a long time and Braden the cop is determined to catch her in the act. Finally Braden gets lucky and catches her in the act but when he takes her in the FBI or some government group shows orders and takes her away. Braden isn't comfortable with this and follows them so when they stop and offer to let him come with them he goes, that's when he finds out they want Dreya for her s ...more

Dreya knows that she is kind of a freak. She has literal claws that can come out on comand or in times of distress. The night-vision is kind of cool but it makes her eyes glow, so not to be done in mixed company. Her extraordinary hearing and smell can make the world overwhelming but over time Dreya has learned to block most of the extra senses. Speed, balance, reflexes all contribute to her success as a cat burglar.

Braden was hoping his favorite thief had left town and turned over a new leaf.

We first met Dreya and Braden in HER ROGUE ALPHA. Dreya was a cat burglar--literally. She was a talented second-story thief who thought she was a freak. In HER TRUE MATCH she discovers that she's a feline shifter.

Braden was a smart, determined detective in HER ROGUE ALPHA who investigated Dreya's theft of a diamond and a mysterious box from Senator Thorn. Thorn sits on the "board" of the DCO and is corrupt.

In HER TRUE MATCH, Braden--who has come to understand Dreya very well--captures her red-ha

Her True Match is another great installation in Paige Tyler’s X-Ops series. I truly love this series with it’s mix of spy and black ops type missions entangled with a paranormal shifter world that is different from many of the shifters that we typically read about. In this world, shifters haven’t come out to the majority of humans. They also don’t shift entirely into their animal forms like in most shifter stories. They grow fangs and claws and their eye

Braden has been trying to catch Dreya in the act, but until now she has always stayed one step ahead of the law and him. One night, Dreya's luck changes when Braden catches her sneaking out of one of her jobs. Dreya believes her time is finally up, when the DCO steps in to save her. Their story should end there, but ...more

Wow! I absolutely loved this book. Do much romance and action. The chemistry between them is so tangible at one point I yelled "omg just kiss her already!" because the author built it up so much. She brought in some of the other couples which was nice. Of course like usual she brought in another shifter story to give you a tease for the next book. The ending was seriously jaw dropping and satisfying.

Another great book in this series. I liked the pairing up of Dreya and Braden. The whole opposites attract thing was a great book. The action, as always, was top-notch.

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.

This was one incredibly action packed, adventure filled, hilarious, paranormal romance that you will not want to miss out on.

Braden Hayes is a good detective, matter of fact he is one of the best in his district. And it is all thanks to his first partner. Thanks to his first partner he realized that he should not break the rules, and he made his job his life because loosing his friend and partner in a shoot out took away his desire to work fully on instinct. And he has been happy with his life.

Okay, so I hardly ever write reviews...HOWEVER, I am a HUGE believer in the idea that if you put a couple together in a series, and give them their book, YOU AREN'T ALLOWED TO KILL ONE OF THEM OR BREAK THEM UP LATER ON. They're sacred.
SO, on that note, I am really hoping that John Loughlin did not in fact die in this book, that his death was staged, or that Cree was able to protect him and they faked his death. Seeing as how her protecting him WAS THE WHOLE POINT OF THEIR

The menagerie of animal shifters that I thought I’d be reading about so early in the series hasn’t yet come to pass and as I suspect, won’t ever. The shifters here merely shift partially, and Tyler does provide a believable-enough explanation for their genetic makeup and behaviour. The pairing of a shifter with a law-enforcement/ex-military character seems to be the default pairing here, though I’ve largely enjoyed the ways that they get together, and ‘Her True Match’ follows this self-same patt ...more

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy:

I don’t know why Paige Tyler’s two series are so different, but where I adore the SWAT (Secret Werewolf Alpha Team) series, the X-Ops series just isn’t my cup of tea. It’s not as fun as the first, and the characters aren’t as likeable or deep.

There are so many layers of confusion created by the split loyalties within the team that I can no longer keep track of who is good and who is bad. The leaders of the X-Ops, a kind of FBI who use shifters’ powers
