Paxton: A Rogue Enforcers Novella by Darlene Tallman
Paxton Doherty is a loner, a shifter without a pack, a man without a mate. While his ability wasn’t enough to allow him to become a true Enforcer, someone who protects and upholds the shifter laws, he is ‘good enough’ to be a Rogue Enforcer. Something that the leader, Colton, figured out. Now, he spends his days handling cases in his area and his nights roaming the woods.
He never expects his mate to fall almost literally in his lap. Or the danger that surrounds her that will require not only his skills, but those of several of his teammates in the Rogue Enforcers.
Landry Welch realized early in life that not everyone who smiles at you is your friend. A professional athlete, she’s out running one day when she’s hit by a car. Tossed into a ditch, broken and critically injured, she realizes that she’ll never have what she always dreamed of—someone to love. She knows she’s not worth the effort it would take for anyone to break down her walls but wishes someone would take that chance.
Can the Rogue Enforcers deal with this latest threat? Will Paxton convince Landry that she is, indeed, his mate? Will his confession cause her to run?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is the reason I went back and read the previous Rogue Enforcers Books. I saw that this author was putting out a book in this series, and absolutely had to go back and read the other books! And I’m so glad I did. This series, although written by different authors, flows smoothly from book to book, providing an interesting glimpse into this world. I’ve totally enjoyed all of the stories, and Paxton was no exception! I adored Paxton & Landry!
Paxton has had a solitary life, leaving home as soon as possible due to a toxic situation. He left behind family, and all that he knew, striking out on his own. Landry has never known a home, or family. She, too, has been on her own, never having found her place.
I absolutely loved this story! There was so much going on, and it kept moving (I hate a book that stagnates!) There was an instant connection, between Paxton and Landry, and even though they tried to slow things down, it was undeniably HOT! Over all, it was a fun, interesting story that kept me laughing. In my book, that is a total win!
