  • Dianne
    He lived through hell and now Tanner has gone “hermit” on the world to protect those he loves, especially Dr. Zarina Sokolov, the woman he left behind who has a firm grip on his heart. Did he really believe the brilliant scientist wouldn’t’ track him down, even if it meant into the wilderness, unprepared for the wilds of Washington state?Little did Zarina know she would find herself in the middle of a series of disappearances surrounding ...

    Definitely a fast paced story with two very likable MCs. Tanner and Zarina were cute together and I liked them as a couple. She was sweet and he was everything I love in a strong alpha male. Protective, loving and honorable.The ongoing story is intrigue and the many supporting/secondary characters are fascinating in their own right (and definitely piqued my interest for more!) but that being said, the romance was a bit luke warm. I don’t know i...

    My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!! ***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I received a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! The cover is perfection, and you can look at it to see why!This is the 8th book in the series, and I haven’t read them all YET…someday I will! I’m collecting them in paperback. This book is for adults only due to the vio...

    Tanner’s and Zarina’s story has been a long time in coming, their ups and downs well catalogued through Paige Tyler’s X-Ops series. And this starts on a down, so to speak, after Tanner has run off into the woods, tortured and determined to stay isolated because of his uncontrollable hybrid instincts. But Zarina is unwilling to give up on this man (?) who’s seen enough torture for a lifetime and her stubbornness somehow pulls Tanner from t...

    Tanner and Zarina's story was an absolutely great read.... Intense from the start and well thought through. My favourite character, however, came in the shape of a police officer named Chase and I am sure that we are going to hear more from this feisty male in future books.A great read, a solid 4 stars and it left me wondering how this is going to pan out in the future!
  • Mona
    Another winner by Ms. Tyler. Fast faced, and full of suspense. I just loved it. This is amazing series. When Tanner who’s a hybrid lion shifter thinks the best way to protect the women he cares about a lot he leaves the DCO. The only women who really sees him for what he is. If it wasn’t for Zarina he’d probably be dead. What he doesn’t expect is to see her in Washington in the mountains by herself. Why he doesn’t know. But she isn’t ...
  • Linda
    A riveting, fast-paced, action-packed thriller with a sizzling romance! A man she’d never even kissed completely owned her heart.X-Ops Exposed is the eighth exciting installment in Paige Tyler’s paranormal romantic thriller series which features shifter hybrids fighting to stay sane and in control against despicable villains. I would be remiss if I did not first mention the stunning cover of this book which drew my attention from the get-go. ...
  • Sophia
    After the big blockbuster finish on the last book, I was curious to see what was in store for the new series arc of the X-Ops world. Long time characters, Tanner and Zarina get their romance and a new set of situations rise to keep up the intensity of the earlier books.X-Ops Exposed is book eight in the exciting paranormal romantic suspense series about covert ops teams of shifters and their human partners out to stop power mad government leaders...
  • All Things Urban Fantasy
    Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyX-OPS EXPOSED is not a good standalone and neither are the previous books in the X-Ops series. The series story arc is expansive and almost overstuffed with plot, with a multitude of secondary characters who have their own dangling plots/loose ends that connect to the series story arc. Having read a few of these books I still can't keep straight who is a bad guy and which organization I am supposed to be...
  • Madison Warner Fairbanks
    X-Ops Exposed by Paige Tyler8th book in the paranormal thriller series. Best to read in order because of an overall arc.Military style activities with romance as the central theme with shifter hybrids fighting to stay sane and in control against out of control “bad guys”.I’ve read all of these and enjoy the nonstop action. This one was more action and less romance. Quite a bit of violence. Because it’s a series, I can live with some open ...
  • Miriam Wolfe
    This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy.Wow, each book just gets better and better in tis series! I was so exited when I saw that Tanner and Zarina were finally going to get their chance for romance. All I can say is that Zarina really had to be patient and stubborn as she waited for Tanner to realize that he could get close to someone.I love the side stories with Tate and Chase and Tanner and his family. I connected the dots when Tanner r...

    I have read just about all the books in Paige Tyler’s X-Ops Series, published under Sourcebooks Casablanca (April 3, 2018) without a doubt this title stands with all the rest in this series, when it comes to smoking hot romance and suspense.When Dr. Zarina Sokolov takes a track into the forest of Washington State to find Lion hybrid and former Army Ranger Tanner Howland to offer him chances to become human again.Tanner Howland just wants to be ...

    5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 A game changer novel in the X-Ops series by Paige Tyler, that started with Her Perfect Mate. This book contains major spoilers for the previous seven novels and is best read as part of the full series to get a good understanding of the motivations of the main protagonists Tanner and Zarina. Paige Tyler departs from the format of the preceding novels a little and opens up the world for some gripping new instalments in the se...

    Loved it. Can hardly wait for the next book in the series.

    Originally posted on I Smell Sheep.* A copy of this book was and provided by the publisher via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. All conclusions are my own responsibility and I was not compensated for this review.Eight books, can you believe it? Eight books into Paige Tyler’s X-Ops series and things are going in a direction that could lead to a major battle for survival. I don’t know about anyone else but I’m excited.Tanner has...
  • Melanie
    Review originally posted at BooksOfMyHeart.net.I’m a big fan of Paige Tyler’s X-Ops series. It combines shifters and military/FBI/CIA type stuff. In this world, there are shifters, though most of the world doesn’t know anything about them. They don’t shift into full animals, but do have heightened speed and agility. They do grow claws and big teeth. Their eye can shift to give them better than night vision and have great hearing. There ar...

    Exposed in more ways than one…Lion hybrid Tanner Howland has some issues controlling his hybrid side and has fled the DCO, namely Dr. Zarina Sokolov, to avoid hurting the woman for whom he’s grown feelings. Undaunted, Zarina is not about to give up on the hybrid she has come to love and is hot on Tanner’s trail with a serum that could save him from himself.As expected…Tanner and Zarina have feelings for each but don’t immediately act on...

    ARC REVIEW OMG!X-Ops #8, Tanner and Zarina FINALLY!!!!!! Even though Tanner and Zarina are established characters and have been part of the series for a while now because this is the start of a new story arc this one can be read as a stand alone. Most of their backstory is explained. Tanner and Zarina story has been one I've been waiting for, Tanner was the first hybrid DCO came across that could control his animal but in the last book he lost co...

    X-Ops Exposed is outstanding! The thrills and emotional depth to the story really captivate and draw readers in and keeping them hostage until the very end.Once again, Paige Tyler impresses me with her very vivid world that is full of energy and vibrant characters that make it impossible not to become a part of all the excitement as it happens.

    Lots going on in this latest in the X-Ops world. Two separate stories going on. On the west coast...Wolf shifter Tanner Howland get embroiled with some preppers in the woods when he runs away due to being overwhelmed with both PTSD and being a hybrid – two conditions he is unable to control. On his heels is Dr Zarina Sokolov who is in love with him and thinks she has a serum that could help him. On the east coast...DCO operative Tate Evers is s...
  • Darcy
    As much as I liked that Tanner and Zarina got their HEA, I was more interested in what was going on with Tate and Chase and the explosive ending. It was fun to see Chase get his eyes opened and he took things very well. He seems like he would be a good addition to the DOC. With Tanner and Zarina, it seemed like once Tanner accepted Zarina staying their ending up together was a done deal, they just had to work things out. By staying with the prepp...

    Tanner is a former army ranger who suffers from PTSD. He was captured and experimented on, turning him into a hybrid shifter. He worked as part of the DCO - Department of Covert Operations. But an incident where he lost control of his hybrid and nearly killed a colleague sent him running to live out in the woods.Zarina is a scientist who was kidnapped and made to produce the drugs used to experiment on the people to turn them into hybrids. She ha...
  • Debbie Lester
    Paige Tyler fans have been waiting for this story for a long time. Zarina and Tanner are finally front and center with the latest book in the X-Ops series, X-Ops Exposed. What do a former ranger, turned lion shifter and a geneticist have in common? A lot, if you're a long time reader of this series. This is a relationship that has skirted the edges of the series since the beginning, but it isn't all fun and games in this one. Tyler gives readers ...

    X-Ops Exposed by Paige Tyler is the 8th book in her wonderful X-Ops series. When we last left off in the last book, things were about to change for the X-Ops team, with a new management in charge. Tanner Howland, our hero, likes living alone in the forest in Washington State. Tanner is a hybrid Feline shifter, who has problems controlling his beast due to the drugs he had been given that made him a shifter. Zarina Sokolov, our heroine, is a docto...

    Eighteen months ago, Tanner had been injected, against his will with lion DNA; he’s dangerous, volatile, and nearly out of control, and that’s when he had met Dr. Zarina Sokolov. A couple of months ago, Tanner Howland, frustrated at his inability to master his inner beast, had fled to the Wenatchee National Forest, and Zarina has gone to Washington State to look for Tanner. In spite of everything, Zarina loves Tanner, but will he ever give th...
  • D A
    I wouldn't recommend this as an entry point into the series for 2 reasons -- 1. Tanner & Zarina's relationship has been developing (at a slow burn) over several books & 2. the series overall plot line to find & stop the crazy geneticists & their backers. While overall the story was satisfying and had plenty of action & good moments, I did have some trouble getting into the book and found it to be a slower read. think this was in part do my readin...
  • Glittergirl
    AWESOME 5+ stars! I can't say how much I loved this book! I forgot when I asked NetGalley for an ARC of this book that I haven't started this Paige Tyler series yet. I prefer to binge read series from start to current, and not jump into the middle. Opps, I've started with her SWAT series, also excellent. This series was up next. Well, it just jumped higher on my list to get read. Fabulous characters, I wasn't lost coming into the 8th book either....
  • Christina Rodrigues
    X-OPS Exposed is the eighth book in paige Tyler’s X-OPS series. I have been waiting for this story forever. Since the moment Tanner and Zarina were introduced early on in this series their attraction was evident; it was strong and simmering. Finally their story is here. Tanner Howland is a Lion hybrid who fears he will lose control of his animal side. As a result, he is hiding out in the wilderness of Washington state to protect his friends, fa...
