STEAMY, STEAMY, STEAMY!

Dirty Tactics: Special Weapons and Tactics, by Peyton Banks is the first book in the series and I listened to it as a an audio book and it was so interesting and captivating and I just couldn’t stop listening. The story is told from the perspective of both of the of the main characters, Marcas MacArthur and Sarena.

The nurse, Sarena, moves into a neighborhood with a sexy S.W.A.T. officer neighbor Marcus who she just can’t keep her eyes off of. Men in uniform are her thing and she doesn’t know if she will be able to resist and then Marcus makes his move.

Marcus doesn’t date. It’s not something you do in his line of work, but something is different about his beautiful neighbor. How far will Marcus go to protect the woman who he wasn’t supposed to fall for in the first place. Only reading this engaging, intense, and steamy novel will get you the answers.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is not normally my kind of book, but I liked it. The author’s portrayal of Mac was so sexy though. I love a confident alpha male! I loved the way Serenas mind worked. I loved how she considered inviting herself to the barbecue in the beginning. The suspense was great and I like the feeling of trying to figure out why so much was happening to her as it kept me turning the pages. It’s a great short read that I definitely recommend.

Dirty Tactics (Special Weapons & Tactics Book 1) AUDIO BOOK by Peyton Banks – Review by Kayla Octaviano

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Listen to this book! I was hooked from the beginning! S.W.A.T. Sergeant Marcus MacArthur is as hot as it gets. You love a man in uniform? LISTEN TO THIS BOOK! He’s a badass, and he knows it too. So, of course, he draws the attention of his new neighbor Sarena, a nurse in the emergency room at the hospital. They both work funky hours, they both work adrenaline filled jobs, I’ve never seen a couple more made for each other. But there are downfalls to these careers they’ve picked, and this book shows those very clearly. Can they make it through these dilemmas? Or will they die trying? If you like well written books narrated by people who bring the characters to life, listen to this book. If you like steamy romance scenes that you’ll want to listen to again, listen to this book. If you like twists and action, listen to this book. Basically, listen to this book. It’s amazing and worth the time.

Dirty Tactics (Special Weapons & Tactics Book 1) AUDIO BOOK by Peyton Banks – Review by Piper Foster

l liked this story however I found it a very slow place. The voice over in this audio unfortunately didn’t do it for me I could not hear there passion. Sarena is a strong, independent unqunie lady. Its quick and witty but I feel thier could of been more substance to this book hopefully this is increased in the next book.

 

Dirty Tactics (Special Weapons & Tactics Book 1) AUDIO BOOK by Peyton Banks – Review by Mrs R

This book has every thing you should want in a fast paced military/police romance, hot police officers, alpha male tendencies, curvy strong women and a situation that forces them to face a future they didn’t envisage. However it just didn’t quite pan out for me.

Marcus is SWAT officer, convinced his lifestyle isn’t suitable for relationships. Sarena is a strong willed ER nurse who would love to find the right man a settle down. The two are neighbours who have been keeping an eye on each other, but neither makes a move, until Marcus walks up to Sarena and tells her he’s going to sleep with her and she says OK. There is no build up or flirting, it’s literally the first conversation they have.

I just didn’t feel any building up of a relationship with these two characters, they went from instant sexual attraction, to ‘willing to die for the other’ in a matter of a couple of dates.

The book almost felt like it was in two parts. The first being an erotic romance, the second an action romance and I would have loved to have seen more of a merge.

I enjoyed the action element to the story and you can tell a lot of thought has gone into it, but the romance (or lack of romance), just fell flat to me.

The duel narration was good and really helped to move between the duel POV. I’d gladly listen to either again.

Dirty Tactics (Special Weapons & Tactics Book 1) AUDIO BOOK by Peyton Banks – Review by Carly Vogler

Dirty Tactics by Peyton Banks is an action packed and steamy romance. The story literally drops you in the middle of the action from the start. We first meet Marcas in a SWAT raid.

The girl next door uses every opportunity to take a peak at her hot neighbor and wants to get closer to him. Sarena gets her chance when he walks into the Emergency Room where she works.

She stands her ground and puts him in his place, which he isn’t used to. Unfortunately, her connection to him puts a target on her back. How far is Marcas willing to go to save Sarena? Will it be enough, or will he lose everything he has worked for?

Overall, I really enjoyed this audio book. The narration was good, it was easy to listen to and I liked the story. I always thought I would find it harder to connect with characters in an audio book but I definitely didn’t in this one. I liked Marcus and Sarena, he was definitely an alpha male – I loved that about him and I really liked Sarena too, I don’t always like the sweet and innocent female lead but I couldn’t help but think she was nice and definitely perfect for Marcus (in my opinion) – she did have a little bit of sass about her though!

Peyton Banks is a new to me author and I am definitely looking forward to listening/reading more of her stories!

Dirty Tactics (Special Weapons & Tactics Book 1) AUDIO BOOK by Peyton Banks – Review by Charlisa Wahtomy-Alba

Marcus MacArthur is a SWAT member, former Navy SEAL, and all around tough guy. He is constantly putting his life in danger so he doesn’t do relationships. What woman in their right mind would want to constantly worry about whether or not he would be coming home that night? It isn’t until his feisty neighbor, Serena Rucker, moves in and catches his attention that he is contemplating having a serious relationship. One night with her should have been enough, but now that he’s had her he can’t seem to think of anything else. With his profession there are bound to be people that want to see him either badly hurt or dead. When he learns that she has a target on her back due to their connection he would do everything in his power to keep her safe.

Serena Rucker is an emergency room nurse that has had her eye on Marcus for a while. She knows what she’s getting into by starting any kind of relationship with him, but she worries anyway. Will she be able to make Marcus see things her way? Being associated with a man like Marcus isn’t going to be easy especially when they are willing to hurt those he cares for. When trouble comes knocking Serena is caught in the middle and used as leverage against Marcus. Will Marcus be able to save her from a horrible situation or will he be too late?

This is the first book I have read or even listened to by this author. It’s definitely not something to listen to in a room full of people, haha. The two leads are both headstrong and aren’t afraid to go for what they want.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I looked over to my new neighbour my heart picked up, he is so alpha male it just oozes from him. When Mac first saw his new neighbour running he can’t get her out of his mind but his job is dangerous and does he really want to put Serena is danger.

Mac is an elite SWAT commander and his alpha male sexiness is always in the for front but Mac is always wary regarding his love life as he is always a target and would not want to put anyone else in that world.

Serena has seen her hot neighbour and fantasise about having just on night with him but when an encounter where she worked rouses more that anger within Serena she then tries to get closer to this sexy man.

This story explodes from the first words spoken, the story is brilliant and although I did feel at times that the character of Serena was out of character with some of the interactions with Mac I still enjoyed the overall chemistry between these two characters.

I did enjoy the narrators who I felt gave these characters a great voice and personality, I will definitely be listening to more stories in this series.
