Description: He opened his mouth to order her to drop the MP5 she had aimed at him, but nothing would come out. It was like she'd robbed him of the ability to speak. Shooting her wasn't an option, though. And the idea of arresting her didn't make him feel any better.
There's a new gang of criminals in town who are organized and ruthless in the extreme. When Eric Becker, along with the rest of the Dallas SWAT team, ends up in the middle of a shootout, he immediately senses werewolves-a lot of them. Turns out, the new bad guys are a pack of wolf shifters.
In a spray of gunfire, Becker comes face-to-face with the most gorgeous woman he's ever seen. Becker does the logical thing. He hides her and leaves the scene with the rest of his team.
Jayna Winston has no idea why that SWAT guy helped her, but she's glad he did. Ever since she and her pack mates got mixed up with those Eastern European mobsters, everything had pretty much fallen apart.
So what's a street-savvy thief like Jayna going to do with a hot alpha-male wolf who's a police officer?
My Thoughts: Jayna became a werewolf when she was seventeen and assaulted and almost raped by her mother's latest boyfriend. She was taken in by Liam who became her alpha. Liam gathered a few other strays too and they became like family. But now Liam has thrown in with some Albanian mobsters and he is leading the rest of the pack into a life of crime. Jayna is trying to keep the rest of her pack safe.
Eric Becker is a new member of the Dallas SWAT and new to being a werewolf too. When he meets Jayna during a warehouse robbery, he believes that she is The One for him. He secretly goes undercover to join the gang and to protect Jayna. He does this without his alpha and his boss knowing anything about it.
Eric is determined to keep Jayna and her pack safe and also determined to convince her that she is the one for him. Jayna isn't sure she believes in this whole "The One" thing but she is willing to have a relationship with Eric.
There is lots of danger as Eric tries to find a way to get Jayna and the others in her pack away from their corrupt alpha. There is also danger that the Albanian mobsters will realize that he is a cop. Offsetting the danger is the love that grows between Eric and Jayna. The love scenes are nicely spicy.
This was another great addition to the SWAT series.
Megan set down the last plate, then came around the table to take Jayna's hand in hers. "Sleeping with a guy isn't the same thing as opening your heart to him. It's about being willing to open yourself up and risk getting hurt for a chance at finding something real. That's not you, Jayna. You're really good at keeping people at a distance, you always have been. But I'm guessing Eric makes you feel things you've never felt for a guy, and it's freaking you out. And when you get freaked, you run."I got this book from the publisher via NetGalley for review. You can buy your copy here.
