Review – Ready For His Rule by Angel Payne

Ready cover

Review graphic

Everyone that is a fan of the WILD Boys has been anxiously awaiting this book. The ultimate leader and best man in the group. John Franzen has been at the side of his men through everything. Kidnappings, murder plots, terrorists… love lost and gained. He has held the weight of the world on his brave shoulders and has stood strong through it all. How wonderful and how satisfying that this man is getting his own love story!

Franzen has been released from the service and his leaving wasn’t so stellar. Now he has been charged with protecting the Vice President of the United States and her son. It was supposed to be a routine mission until it wasn’t. An unspeakable act changes Tracy Rhodes’s life forever and now Captain Franzen must do whatever it takes to protect her. Neither of them planned for the chaos to bring them together. Neither of them planned to have a bond so deep and so lasting in just a few short weeks. Knowing that sacrifices will have to be made, the Dragon has to decide what to do – let the love of his life and the submissive of his dreams go and make the world right again or stay with her and drag her down. No matter the cost he has to keep her safe, even if that means he has to let her go.

If a series has to end, it should end like this. It should end with an incredible man facing his insecurities and his fears and winning the most coveted of prizes – his heart. It should end with the most heartbreaking but soul mending story that an author has to give. I laughed and cried my whole heart out. I swooned and sighed because no one does dominance like the Dragon, six and a half feet of pure power and masculinity. I cheered for a woman who through no fault of her own finds the world on her shoulders, and she balances that ball of responsibility with class, grace, strength and brilliance. Tracy Rhodes was the definition of the call sign she was given. She was a tigress and a fierce one at that. Mother, world leader, proud submissive. All in a day’s work.

Saying goodbye to a beloved cast of characters… oh, how it stings. Garrett and Sage are why I found the amazing Angel Payne in the first place. This series will always be special to me. Thank you, dear friend, for the wildest of rides and characters that I will cherish always. This series demonstrates your amazing talents and how much your words can move this maybe reader to a definite fan. Bravo, Angel!

5 Dragon and Tigress Stars!
Are you ready?
Angel Payne’s alpha military heroes, the WILD Boys of Special Forces, have swept away readers across the globe with their fierce passion and suspenseful adventures. The warriors of the First Special Forces Group come together in one final book, featuring the Dominant team leader everyone’s been waiting for…

Captain John Franzen.

Inside the lines…
It’s the definition of life for Tracy Rhodes, and she has no choice about that. Lines–lots of them–are what happens when one is sworn in as second-in-command of the free world.
But the lines are crushed beneath the boots of Captain John Franzen, assigned as a special advisor to her security team for a high-profile event in Vegas. The towering warrior with the haunted stare shatters her composure, invades her libido, and makes her yearn for things she shouldn’t. Sweaty, illicit things…with her body pinned beneath his…

Outside the boundaries…
John Franzen, six and a half feet of rigid composure on the outside, is a lost man on the inside. Why the hell is he even alive? A guy isn’t supposed to survive eleven years in Special Forces, especially after the crazy missions he’s been assigned. Accepting the security gig in Vegas is just a favor to a friend–a way to fill time that’s become too damn empty lately.
Until the cushy “babysitting job” becomes the most treacherous mission of his life–and the politician he’s protecting becomes the woman in his bed. The lover beneath his bonds…

The submissive he longs to claim forever.

Breaking all the rules…
She’s destined for marble halls and an oval office.
He’s wired for dirt and violence.
Will her passion be enough to tame his demons…to claim the ultimate wild boy as her own?

Angel Payne

USA Today bestselling romance author Angel Payne has been reading and writing her entire life, though her love for romances began in junior high, when writing with friends on “swap stories” they’d trade between classes. Needless to say, those stories involved lots of angst, groping, drama, and gooey kissing.

She began getting a paycheck for her writing in her twenties, writing record reviews for a Beverly Hills-based dance music magazine. Some years, various entertainment industry gigs, and a number of years in the hospitality industry later, Angel returned to the thing she loves the most: creating character-based romantic fiction. Along the way, she also graduated with two degrees from Chapman University in Southern California, taking departmental honors for English, before writing five historical romances for Kensington and Bantam/Doubleday/Dell.

Angel found a true home in writing contemporary-based romances that feature high heat and high concepts, focusing on memorable alpha men and the women who tame them. She has numerous book series to her credit, including the Kinky Truth series, the Secrets of Stone series (with Victoria Blue), the W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series, and the acclaimed Cimarron series. Temptation Court, a new series being launched through the Dark Nights Discovery project, debuts in 2016.

Angel still lives in Southern California, where she is married to her soul mate and lives on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with their awesome daughter and Lady Claire, the dog with impeccable manners. When not writing, she enjoys reading, pop culture, alt rock, cute shoes, enjoying the outdoors, and being a gym rat.
