Turning Payne by Chantel Seabrook (Therian Agents, #2)

Turning Payne (Therian Agents, #2)When the sexy bad boy Therian Agent goes off the reservation, ONCE AGAIN, I’ll bet no one expected he would find the woman who could finally tame both the man and the lion within. As always, Fate makes allowances for no man or metamorph and the object of his affection is the daughter of his arch enemy, the one he killed not too long ago. Riley has just witnessed the unbelievable and she is terrified, her sister has disappeared and in her place is a huge and hairy lioness. Turner to the rescue, but who will rescue Turner from the beautiful woman who is wiggling her way into his heart? How can he tell her, I love you and I think I killed your father in the same breath and expect her to say, stuff happens…?

Thing is, Turner is not convinced Richard Boyd is dead because more and more humans are morphing into animals and now, one of his own daughters has shifted. Who has continued his heinous and barbaric research on innocent victims? Turner is determined to find out and keep his mate safe from harm and the secrets he carries. We all know what happens with lies of omission…and Turner is about to find out, but will that be the biggest revelation discovered? Will this budding romance with the sizzling chemistry get off the ground or will Riley leave behind only the scorched sheets of what they briefly shared?

Sizzle and burn, twist and turn, Chantel Seabrook has conjured up another hotter than blazes romance with Turning Payne. Everybody loves a bad boy, and everybody loves to see them brought to their knees by the power of a woman, am I right? Ms. Seabrook has brought Turner to his knees and yet, he is alpha all the way, full of good, if misguided intent, when the odds are stacked against them, he is all about doing the right thing for the right reasons! Riley actually had a pretty good head on her shoulders, considering what she has experienced, including the strip-down prelude to Turner’s shift, not to mention seeing the beast he becomes. Start to finish, the tension rolls along at a whiplash pace, and boy, the action? The twists? That electric jolt of discovery? Did NOT see that coming! Another fabulous page turner from Chantel Seabrook. Oven Mitts, optional, but trust me, this one is hot!

I received an ARC edition from Chantel Seabrook in exchange for my honest review.
