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.

My Thoughts

*ARC provided by Publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review*

So, you guys may not know this, but I love and crave a good Bodyguard romance. Like one-thousand percent love and crave them. And when I find a good one? I devour every single word of it and then search out more by that author… such is the case with Primal Instinct, book two in Tara Wyatt’s Bodyguard series with Grand Central Publishing’s Forever imprint. I missed the release of the first book, but I can promise you, I will be rectifying that shortly because this book? This book I loved!

Taylor Ross is a fantastic heroine. A little down on her music and career luck sure, but she’s tough and spunky and has a great sense of humor. And Colt? Man, I loved him. Strong, proud, brave, and fully capable of giving Taylor Ross and all that comes with her a run for her money. Love, love, loved them!

And the suspense in this one? Excellent, with a side of creepy, crazy stalker and a dangerous, devious dad for the win. Also, the balance of suspense and romance in this one is spot on. Like seriously spot on. In fact, I loved every single minute of this book!

If you’re looking for a great romantic suspense with amazing characters in a fast-paced, well-plotted story, pick up a copy of Primal Instinct by Tara Wyatt. It’s entertaining, hot, and totally addictive.

I loved it!

Book Excerpt

From Primal Instinct by Tara Wyatt:


From his little table in the corner, Ronnie adjusted his glasses as he watched Taylor walk out of the bar, her fingers laced with those of the brute who’d intruded on them earlier. He finished the rest of his Coke and slammed the empty glass down. Possessive anger coupled with an almost blind- ing jealousy churned through him. It’d been hard to watch that interaction, and now she was leaving with him? He’d been much happier watching her while she’d been alone, even if she’d looked sad.

He knew he shouldn’t have gone over and talked to her, but he couldn’t help himself. He’d been warned, but no one knew what they were talking about. They didn’t see. They couldn’t see. He loved her, and she loved him. Soon, every- one would know, and everyone who’d called him crazy and obsessed and delusional would fucking see.

Ever since he’d first heard her sing, he’d known he was listening to the future mother of his children.

He dropped a five on the table and pushed his way out of the bar, getting in his car just in time to follow Taylor. He had to. He couldn’t let her go off alone with that brute, un- protected. And if she was going to betray him, he needed to know. He needed to see.

Because Taylor was his. Every part of her. Her gorgeous blond hair, those huge, blue eyes, the long, lean body. The incredible voice. The skilled hands. Her mind. Her soul. Her body.

She belonged to him.
