Description: The Dallas SWAT team is hiding one helluva secret...they're a pack of wolf shifters.
The team of elite sharpshooters is ultra-secretive-and also the darlings of Dallas. This doesn't sit well with investigative journalist Mackenzie Stone. They must be hiding something...and she's determined to find out what.
Keeping Mac at a distance proves impossible for SWAT team commander Gage Dixon. She's smart, sexy, and makes him feel alive for the first time in years. But she's getting dangerously close to the truth-and perilously close to his heart...
My Thoughts: Mackenzie Stone is an award-winning journalist and she has the Dallas SWAT team in her sites. She is sure that something is wrong; no group can be so squeaky clean. She's right but she would never have guessed that they are all werewolves.
Gage Dixon is in charge of the team and the leader of the pack. He is determined that Mac will never find out the team's secret. However, despite his previous beliefs, it seems that Mac is The One - the woman who is the perfect match for his werewolf. He never even thought The One existed; he sure never thought that he would find her in the person of a nosy reporter who could blow his pack's cover.
A local mobster has decided that the SWAT team needs to be taught a lesson. They killed his son. Of course, the son was robbing a bank and had taken quite a number of hostages. But still it was the SWAT team's fault that his son was killed. When threats and attempts to ambush Gage and Mac don't work, the mobster resorts to kidnapping. Mac learns Gage's secret and then has to decide which is stronger - her love to journalism and telling the truth at all times or her love for Gage.
This was an engaging story with charismatic characters. I hope their are more stories in the works that show the other members of the pack finding The One for each of them.
"I was just looking at your collage. What's the Mickey Mouse thing about?"I got this eARC for review at NetGalley. You can buy your copy here.
"It's just something I put together to remind me to never take myself too seriously. No matter how big the stories are that I write, every kid on the planet would rather meet Micky Mouse than me."
He chuckled. "You know, that's not a bad way to look at the world."
