This is going to be a damn good series based on this first book. I like the fact that this is a super secret group using shifters and humans together. I even liked that they weren't what you normally think of as shifters. It's gonna be a really exciting series to read and see where it goes. There was plenty of action to keep things interesting without it being to much and of course the level of sexual tension that radiated off Landon and Ivy was enough to set the book on fire. So, why didn't I give it five stars? Well, one reason was the handler's name kept changing from John to Todd and back again and that got annoying. The other reason was I didn't understand why if John was in charge of everybody and everything he took orders from Dick, who was under him in the chain of command. Anyway, looking forward to more in this series. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.

Paige Tyler has outdone herself with this riveting tale of extraordinary characters! Her Perfect Mate is a book that once you finish reading it, you ask yourself..."Now what does one read after a book like this?". I find myself mystified when trying to come up with a review that will give this book it's due, a review that will maybe give it the grand justice that it deserves. With that said, let me try to put into words what a most superlative read this book is! When I read a book that has captivated my attention in the most profound way, I don't like to give detailed description of the book. You can get that from the excerpt and/or synopsis that the author releases. However, I will give you a small glimpse into what is in store for your reading pleasure. This book will take you on a journey that will bewitch your full attention and keep you enchanted with it's twists, turns and plots of suspense.  Landon Donovan is in a class of heroes that you find, are few and far between. The devotion he shows in this book for his teammates, partner and job are first-rate. His loyalty is nothing short of miraculous. But this is nothing compared to what he feels for Ivy.  Ivy Halliwell is divine and to say she is like no other is an understatement. However, she questions herself when she is confronted day after day with disgruntled colleagues that see her, as less than human. Can she get over self doubt when she is partnered with Landon!?  Thank you Ms. Paige Tyler for allowing me the honor and extreme pleasure of reading this magnificent story. You continue to amaze me with your wit!

This story was compelling and gripping from page one. It started off so action packed I was afraid the author would have no where else to go and boy was I wrong. Ivy was a kick ass heroine who looked good while doing it and Landon was a hero that every woman dreams about. This author was new to me and I am so glad that I got a chance to read this explosive book and can't sit to see what next in this spectacular line-up of secondary characters. Thank you Paige you knocked it out of the park with this book.

Romantic suspense with a paranormal twist.  This is the first in an exciting new series.  Action, adventure and romance.  I liked everything about this book but the title.  It is a little misleading. The characters were compelling and the story kept you turning the page to see what happens next.  This is an incredibly fast paced story and I couldn’t put it down.  I look forward to the next installment.

I love shifter books and I'm so glad this one didn't disappoint me in the least! I read it in one day! I plan on getting all of the books in the series. The two I'm most anticipating are Angelo and Declan! Thank you so much Paige for coming out with this series!

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. Review: 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!  They immediately hit it off and become a great working team, that trusts each other.  The mission they are sent out on tests their budding relationship both on and off  missions.  My only caveat is that it was pretty easy for me to figure out what the bad guys were up to. I really enjoyed this book, it was well written, full of characters who were both convincingly good and bad and at the heart of it two main characters who are super sexy and rockin' action heroes.  I finished this book in one setting and now I have to wait to read more...ugh 4.5 Stars

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 1/2 REVIEW:  To say Ivy is a little gun shy when it comes to her newest partner is an understatement. Ivy has not had the best track record with her partners. But there is something about Landon something that puts her at ease. But even that makes her a bit nervous.  Landon is not very happy to be pulled off of his mission and forced to come back stateside. That is until he learns who is new partner is and what she can do.  Landon & Ivy make such a great team. From the save on the rope cross I knew this was going to be a great story. The interaction between these two was so much fun.  This is my first Paige Tyler book and I am totally in love with the world that she created. These are not your ordinary shifters! Oh no this shifters. Should I tell you? I am not sure. You will just have to pick up a copy of Her Perfect Mate and find out for yourself.  Disclaimer:  I received a complimentary copy of the book from NetGalley & Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

Thrilling, romantic, and enjoyable, Her Perfect Mate was a wonderful paranormal romance. I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a lovely read. Ivy was a great heroine. She was very strong and a force to be reckoned with. She could fight like hell and refused to take crap from anyone, about being a shifter or being a woman in a Special Ops team. But, she was also nice, likable, and loyal to those she cared about. I thought she was lovely. Landon was also wonderful. He was very sweet and definitely strong. I liked that he was never judgmental and didn't let anyone try make him. He was great and I really liked him. The romance was lovely. Ivy and Landon were a perfect match. They were both incredibly strong and clever and they made an unstoppable team. They chemistry between them was constantly sizzling and it got very hot. These two were a wonderful couple. The plot was well paced. I wasn't totally hooked, which was my one problem with the book. I wasn't completely absorbed in the story. However, I was still kept interested the entire way through. There were plenty of thrills as Ivy and Landon went on extremely dangerous missions. I enjoyed the story and the ending was great, tying up the romance, while leaving me curious about what will happen with the villains in book 2. Her Perfect Mate was a wonderful paranormal romance. I liked this book and I really enjoyed reading it. From the romance, to the countless thrills, this was a lovely read. Romance lovers, this is a book worth checking out. *I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!! ***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! I own a paperback copy of this book! This is book 1 in this series, but there is a prequel too! This is for adults only due to the steamy and violent content. I definitely loved this book, and I couldn’t put it down. Tons of action and conflict which is my favorite kind of book! I shouldn’t have taken so long to get this book in my reading rotation, but you know how it is when you are a book addict! So many awesome books, and never enough time to read them all! Ivy is definitely a kick butt heroine which is my favorite kind of leading lady! I love when I get to read about girls kicking butt and being underestimated! This is a unique take on shifters where they don’t completely shift and only take on characteristics of their animal. Landon is a Special Forces officer who can definitely kick butt, but he knows how to be on a team and how to treat a lady and trust her. They are definitely a perfect match! This book had a lot of awesome people I hope to see more of and a few jerks that I don’t mind hating! I can’t wait to read the next book because I own them all! I highly recommend this book to all who love shifter books with tons of action!

This book was just amazing. From the second Ivy and Landon meet I was hooked. It was such a great scene and what better way to get to know your new partner that by sparring. To all appearances super hot Landon has the advantage - big military man that he is. But Ivy has a special trick up her sleeve - her EVA (extremely valuable asset) status means that she's a shifter - a cat to be exact. I think the best thing about this book was Ivy's hesitancy to engage beyond doing the job. She has been burned by partners in the past and she may finally have one that respects her and is willing to work with a "freak". Their first mission is great - and it was the perfect time for them to really get to know each other while they were hiking through the jungle. But the big action takes place a little later - and involves missing scientists and a super evil guy that will do anything to get what he wants. And he wants some seriously scary stuff! Ivy and Landon are sent to investigate, and nothing really goes as planned. And in the midst of things - well - love blossoms. I am totally hooked to this series now. I'm going to be tracking down the next one ASAP.

Special Forces Landon meets covert ops feline shifter Ivy. I loved the concept of this type of shifter. This concept of the shifter is different for me, and I find that it is much more personable. Give me a paranormal book or a military romance book, and I am in. Add the two together and you have a winner!! I have just started reading Paige Tyler's books in the last few months, and I have loved every one of them. Her Perfect Mate is no exception. Can't wait to read the rest of the series! Highly recommend!!

Plot and Story Line  Her Perfect Mate is a story to die for…it has everything I look for in a paranormal romance and a bit more. This is much more than just a paranormal themed story…it has many romantic suspense elements in it too…which just makes it even better. I recently discovered this author this year, and I just adored her writing style. Its engaging and heartwarming, and keeps you thrilled and excited all the meanwhile your reading. In Her Perfect Mate we see a story that brings together two people, these two individuals, are fighters, talented and smart, capable and confident and have  a instant spark. They are forbidden to ever have a relationship, but from the first moment they kiss, their priorities change, and we Ivy and Landon form a bond, that is powerful and the more time they spend together the stronger the bond becomes. They fight good together, and they are well matched as a team, we see how they both have vulnerabilities, but their strengths balance each other out. I can hardly wait to read the second book…oh good ole Clayne….excited to see what happens in his book and in future books!! The Cover  What a bold cover…I love the stance of the two here, and the hero…mmm he certainly is yummy to look at. I love the gold background and gives off that edgy sense that is portrayed in the story. Overall View  Her Perfect Mate is a thrilling tale of a military romance, a dangerous enemy, an explosive passion, and a story that is exciting and gripping!! UTTERLY MESMERIZING!!

GREAT FOR BOTH MEN AND WOMEN This book is one I would have never thought to pick up and read. I am SO glad I did. It is so packed with action, sexiness, and excitement. I loved every page, I was right there with each character as the events unfolded. I hurt with them and felt the good things going on. It was like watching a movie in my head. This book is GREAT for both men and women. So if you are looking for something to read that you just can't put down this is your book. From cover to cover you will not be disappointed. P.S. pg 154 is one of my favorite pages.:) <3

Had no idea what a "shifter" was and do not usually read books about special forces etc. But that said I found this book well written with a strong story line and I finished it quickly... Not sure if I will be seeking similar books in the future but I will not say "definitely NO"..

I found the end a little too unbelievable... I am all for a hero, but just did not like the "damsel in distress' thing at the end.

~ 2.5 Her Perfect Mate Stars ~ Her Perfect Mate is book one in the X-Ops series by Paige Tyler. This is my first experience with this author.  I enjoyed reading Her Perfect Mate, it was interesting, the shifters are a little different then what I'm use to reading, but I was not overly impressed. So much ended up bothering me in this book. I felt like I might not finish it, but I kept going wanting to see what everyone else saw To start: I had a hard time liking the Department of Covert Affairs. It came off as corrupt, prejudiced, and deceitful. Even the people working in the organization, both shifters and humans, with the exception of a slit few, where prejudiced or distrustful of each other. The characters I’m not even sure about. Our heroine who is supposed to be a top agent came access week, insecure, and whinny at times. I could not understand or connect to her. She also can’t control herself. (Really?) Any good shifter has control especially if they are a top agent. I wanted a kick ass agent and she was not that. As for our hero, Ya he is described as god-like, sexy, and can do no wrong. He has too much going for him. Gorgeous, loyal, polite, good in bed, tough, etc. Where is his flaw?…Everyone has at least one flaw. I never once felt like Landon and Ivy where partners as agents or in their personal life. Our hero made all the decisions and our heroine needed him to keep her self worth and job. Also where was the world building? I felt in the dark most of the time and was trying to peace things together about the shifters, agency, characters, etc. We have no indication that shifters are super secret, yes it's mentioned, but Ivy’s sister is living a normal life and others have normal jobs, but its noted that no one knows about them. I needed more Her Perfect Mate was an ok read. I plan to try out book two in the X-Ops series to see if it gets better. If the blurb interests you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.
