The woman tensed. As anger and fear ricocheted across her face, her eyes changed from red to green to brown in a dizzying display like nothing he'd ever seen.
Every instinct in Angelo's body screamed at him to lunge for his weapon. Instead he set his feet for impact, blocking her slashing claws. Unbelievably, after a few moments of struggling, she went still, all the fight gone...
Minka isn't sure she should trust the sexy Special Forces soldier who found her. Subjected to horrors, on the run from scientists set on locking her in a cage, Minka is terrified of the monster she's becoming...and somehow, Angelo is the only one who can calm the beast inside her and make her feel safe.
But can she trust the way he makes her feel when she's not even sure she can trust herself?

Her Fierce Warrior
Okay, so I have GOT to stop listening to other reviewers who say “Oh, you can totally read those books as stand alones.”. Maybe they can, but it has become VERY clear to me that I can’t!! I have read Paige’s X-ops series and really enjoyed it! So, when I saw this book I was psyched. Then I started reading it and I was like “Huh? What the..? Who the…?”. Yeah, that went on for about 20% of the book before I finally realized I (personally speaking) needed to read the series before moving forward. Could I have enjoyed it? Probably. I was really getting into the plot-how did Minka end up as a hybrid? Why is Rios the only one who can calm her? Is she gonna end up having to be put down like the other hybrids (which I was REALLY curious about since I hadn’t read the other books!)? So, I decided to put this book on pause and start the series. I really love Paige’s writing style. She has a really dynamic group of characters that mesh well together, the action is intense and fast paced, and the plot is well written so that it keeps you guessing and keeps you reading. So, I highly recommend this book, I just recommend you start at the beginning. I will update my actual review once I have made it through the series!
