Publisher's Summary

When S.W.A.T Sergeant Marcas MacArthur laid eyes on the bronze skin beauty who moved in next door, he swore that he wouldn’t touch her. Leading one of the most elite S.W.A.T teams in the state of South Carolina left no room for relationships. Marcas knew that Sarena Rucker was a woman who deserved a man’s last name. She was a temptation that he fought to resist, and he vowed to stay far away from her. Now, if only he could follow his own rules.

The emergency room nurse had eyes on her sexy-as-sin neighbor. Sarena had a thing for men in uniforms, and Marcas MacArthur decked out in his S.W.A.T tactical gear made her knees weak. He was the perfect package - sexy, alpha, rugged, and intense. 

She'd lusted after him from afar, and she was unaware that he even knew of her existence. But she was ready to make her presence known. Only, he made the first move by sauntering over to her and let his plans for her be known. The sexy cop didn't realize that he wasn't the only one that could issue orders. Sarena had a few of her own, and Marcas was determined to meet every one of them. 

The chemistry between Marcas and Sarena was electrifying, casting a light on the passion that burned between them. There are those lurking back in the shadows, who want nothing more than to extinguish the blaze and exact revenge on the S.W.A.T officer by taking the one person who made his heart beat again. 

Marcas is willing to go to extreme measures to protect Sarena. Will he be able to rescue her? Or will Marcas lose the one person who gave him hope for a future?

Solid Read

This is a cute story. I liked the two lead characters. They were both independent people who went after what they want. The story immediately dives into an insta-lust relationship that confused me because there was no initation into it. There is no flirting or anything. Marcas just basically went to Sarena and stated that he liked what he saw and he wanted her. Ok. No problem. They are two consenting adults but a little foreplay into my romance makes it stronger. Marcas doesn't do relationships because of his job but after having sex with Sarena he can't shake her. Sarena wants to respect his decision but she wants more. So she goes after that. They both agree to a relationship...which by the way was only in the bedroom. I wanted interaction outside. Dating. something. Though the sex scenes were HOT!!! The action seeps in the latter portion of the book. Things move very quickly and I wish we got more of that portion of the story but I was still pleased. I listened to the audiobook and enjoyed the narration. They were both new to me. Overall, a nice start to the series. There were things that could have been delved into more to make the book stronger. I'm curious enough to read other books in the series.

Fantastic!

This one was very special to me as I have family and friends that are Navy Seals and Swat. It was an example of the closeness and dedication to family, loved ones and our country. It had plenty of sex to keep things hot! Wen Ross and Trei Taylor did a great job narrating it! Wen’s accents of the characters added special meaning to the story. He is wonderful!

Tactics

Oh my goodness! This book tickles all the auditory senses. I love the voice of Wen Ross, and I love how these narrators are able to get the listener to feel the emotion of each character. I will be honest, I thought this book was going to be all sex, and I'm thankful it wasn't. There are some very steamy love scenes, and I think they are tastefully done. I love the twist the author added to this story, because I was wondering how she was going to make it more than just boy meets girl and boy falls in love with girl. I also enjoy that there wasn't much angst between the H and H. I love angst, but most authors tend to drag it out, and I for one believe that two adults should be able to talk  to each other and resolve their issues. Another plus is this is an interracial romance. I love interracial romances stories. For some reason, they still seem to be taboo, and at times it is hard to find those that are superb. This one was very good.

Steamy and Action packed!

This was my first Peyton Banks's book, and won't be my last. This is the first book in the Special Weapons & Tactics Series, a Military Romance, and BWWM Romance. Marcas (Mac) and Sarenas's story is short, fun, steamy, and action packed. I love the instant attraction, the sizzling chemistry, the strong characters, and the suspenseful storyline. Marcas, leader of his S.W.A.T. team, is alpha, protective and possessive. Sarena, an ER nurse, is feisty, and strong. The secondary characters are great and intriguing. I love the brotherhood among the members of the S.W.A.T. team. Wen Ross and Trei Taylor did a great job with the narration. Wen Ross is already one of my favorite narrators. This was my first listen to Trei Taylor's voice. She has a beautiful voice. Looking forward for the next book in the Series, Dirty Ballistics, Declan's story (Mac's best friend).

Sexy little BWWM romance

This was a good story . Somewhat gritty and the alpha male was sexier than the cover. I liked the heat between the two. It was narrated very well. I like the fact the voices matched what I expected of each character. Very well narrated. Will purchase other audio books with this duo

This book was well written. It was straight to the point about their love for each other, also full of action. Both narrators did a wonderful job, kept me enthralled. Great job, Peyton Banks. I will be reading more of your books.

Great story

I love the characters and the narrators were amazing. The author truly brought the alpha male protective side and strong female which is needed to keep a alpha grounded and in line.

Loved it!

I loved this story. I loved the characters and I thought the narratore did a good job telling their stories. My favorite part is when she went to his house to put her foot down. I recommend all romance fans should read/listen to this book.

Tactics Indeed!

Dirty Tactics is an excellent story about two capable and strong-willed characters. Marcas (Mac) is a definition of alpha, an ex-military, and a decorated S.W.A.T. team commander. Sarena, a nurse with a take-charge attitude, who secretly has been wanting Mac for a while. Both characters have a pretty heated connection with an off the charts chemistry. The storyline is entertaining and steamy with action and suspense. The narration by Wen Ross and Trei Taylor is superb. Both did a fantastic job portraying the characters, particularly their passion for each other. I can't wait for the rest of the series to be released.

Good action packed storyline

Good action packed storyline to keep you entertained. Nice strong Alpha with a strong minded woman. Enjoyable narration from both Trei and Wen.
