Primal Instinct by Tara Wyatt

5 enjoyed the connection stars!!


This is my first Tara Wyatt book and I was so pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed it!  If you love romance books full of angst, mystery, steam, and swoon-worthy moments than this one is definitely for you!  When I mention steam, I mean this is definitively a steamy book so you are forewarned right now… it in no way is over done of detracts from the story.  Ok where to begin……….This book follows two main characters Colt and Taylor. Primal Instinct goes from both of their POV’s and it is done really well.  Tara Wyatt seemed to have both characters down pat in her head and you can tell that while you are reading.

Taylor is a world famous singer and a bad ass.  She has had a few bumps in the road that lead to a very public scene.  Now due to that “scene” her label is angry with her considering dropping her.  On top of all of that she has writers block.  The label has demanded that she have a body guard with her at all times to keep her out of trouble.  She is unbelievably pissed about having a body guard, then when she finally meets the body guard she realizes its the one guy who can break her heart.  I really enjoyed Taylor’s no holds barred character.  Obviously she’s flawed  as we all are… she feels like she’s never good enough due to her parents lack of stability.  Taylor is a very forward character she sees something she wants and goes for it.  She tries to ignore her feelings for Colt… I like how they build a shaky friendship first.  However when she decides to go for it, she really goes for it 😉

Colt what a complicated character you were. I honestly just wanted to give this big guy a bear hug and tell him it would be okay.  He has been working with a friend since getting fired from a previous employer. (aka Taylor’s bff’s boyfriend) He is also an ex Army Ranger who has some horrible mental and physical scars from his many tours of duty. He has an amazing night with Taylor and instantly feels the void when she sneaks out early in the morning.  Then by chance he gets assigned to guard her 🙂 Poor Colt feels like he never does enough to protect his loved ones so he always tries to over protect everyone.  He thinks he has failed the people he loved in the past and he’s afraid he will fail Taylor once she is threatened by multiple people.

I have to say I LOVED the prank wars in this book.  I’m unsure how the author even came up with some of these.  Tara Wyatt do you enjoy pranking people? ?  I would say which one is my favorite prank but honestly I don’t want to give any of it away. I highly suggest this book. It is the second in a series but I didn’t feel lost in any way! This could be read as a stand alone book.  Thank you to Forever & Forever Yours Publishing for providing me with this ARC copy for my honest review.

book blurb…

Paperback, 352 pages
Expected publication: May 31st 2016 by Forever
ISBN 1455590282 (ISBN13: 9781455590285)
The first time he lays eyes on Taylor Ross in a bar, Colt Priestley does something few men would dare to do. He approaches the world-famous singer, shamelessly flirts with her, and gives her a night in his bed that neither of them will soon forget.

When Taylor’s record label hires a bodyguard to keep tabs on the out-of-control rocker, she’s less than thrilled to find it’s her off-the-charts one-night stand who shows up for the job. She’s terrified of letting herself fall for the damaged ex-Army Ranger, and she’s determined to push him away. Yet every moment they’re together simmers with tension. As the danger from an obsessed stalker mounts, Taylor and Colt are tempted to cross that line again-baring their hearts and souls as well as their bodies-and there’s no telling how hot this song will get.

“If you love tough guys with a side of sweet, strong heroines with a hint of wild, and suspense with a spark of humor, this is definitely the book for you! Tara Wyatt has created a swoonworthy bodyguard series with primal passion, unexpected twists, and surprising laughs!”–New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti
