Michel/Striker by Alexandra Ivy and Laura Wright

Michel/Striker (Bayou Heat, #15-16)Book Description:
Michel doesn’t trust Dr. Chelsea Young. Why should he? She willingly worked as a researcher for the humans who were using Pantera as lab animals. Unfortunately, his suspicions haven’t kept his cat from becoming obsessed with the need to possess the beautiful female.

Chelsea is determined to atone for her youthful mistakes. Even if that means working with the aggravating Michel who refuses to believe she now wants to help the Pantera. Together they must overcome their mutual animosity to track down her former boss, Stanton Locke, before he can commit the ultimate betrayal.

Dark, damaged and definitely gorgeous, Striker is all about the mission. And when the mission’s over? The Hunter is out of there. That is, until one of Locke’s lab rats is forced on him—a beautiful, pained female who needs sex to survive.

The lovely Twelve was abducted and taken to the labs several years ago. Used for breeding, she was given drugs that make her irresistible to males. It was a hellish, lonely life. But she’s free now, and determined to discover the truth about her past. If only the road to that truth didn’t involve the heartless male she can’t stop herself from wanting.

My Thoughts:
These two books were hot.  Michel doesn't trust Chelsea at all, but he can't help but want her.  When they are thrown together on a mission, he may learn that Chelsea isn't exactly what he thought but maybe exactly what he needs.  Chelsea wants to make up for the terrible she participated in and if she must, she will put up with Michel to do that.  He is sexy and solid, but obviously doesn't trust her.
I really liked Chelsea.  She had been involved in some terrible things and probably didn't deserve their forgiveness but she was determined to show how sorry she was.  Michel wants her, there is no doubt, but he doesn't trust her.  Their mission helps them learn a lot about each other!

Twelve is mad from all the experiements that were done on her by Locke and all those that work for him.  She knows nothing but need.  Striker is the one that is selected to fulfill that need.  Over and over again until she comes back to herself.  When she finally does, Twelve feels safe with no one but him, but Striker isn't the man for the job.  Now he has to convince her of that.
I liked Striker.  He had a job, he did it and left...then when called back in, he wants to be anywhere but with Twelve.  Twelve was determined to remember her life from before the lab and since Striker was the one who brought her back from the void of need, she knows if she can just convince him, he will bring back those memories too.

4/5 all the way.  I really enjoyed these books and the characters in them!
