Tyler has finally been rescued as a prisoner along with his friend Hunter.  When he finds out Laurie has been claimed by his family’s enemies, he and Hunter vow they will get her away from them. What they don’t realize is that Laurie is a member of the Resistance.

The fourth book in the Outlaw Lovers series, Tyler’s Woman, takes the reader on a journey of betrayal, secrecy and suspense.  When Laurie is told Tyler is presumed dead, she joins the Resistance to fight for women’s rights that have been taken away.  The author also gives more information about what happens to women who refuse to be claimed and it is not a pretty picture.  We also learn about a few of the more virulent forms of the virus that the women have.

There are several subplots going on in this story, one about the Resistance and one about trying to bring down the Outlaw enemies.  Several groups are involved in various enterprises that come to a head toward the end of this story.

With the exception of a few, all the secondary characters have shown up in the previous books.  Some turn out to be good friends but there is a lot of betrayal, including one incident involving family.   Relationships are also strained as more is learned about the torture that the prisoners endured if they were captured by a certain prison warden, which includes rape of the male prisoners.

Before the war and advent of the virus, Laurie and Tyler had been together, though Hunter was always around because he was dating Tyler’s sister before she died. The chemistry between Tyler, Laurie and Hunter is scorching. The author did a good job of showing the conflict between the three as Laurie learns about Tyler’s and Hunter’s relationship and how it came about. 

I am looking forward to the next book about the last Outlaw brother.  Readers do need to read this series in order to get the full picture of what is going on.

Reader Advisory: Contains references to non-consensual sex.
