Wolf Under Fire (STAT #1)
For the cases no one else can solve, they send in the Special Threat Assessment TeamSupernatural creatures are no longer keeping their existence secret from humans, causing panic around the globe. To investigate, monitor, and ― when necessary ― take down dangerous supernatural offenders, an international task force was established: The Special Threat Assessment Team.STAT agent Jestina Ridley is in London with her team investigating a suspicious kidnapping. Over her radio, Jes hears her teammates being savagely attacked. She runs to help, but she's too late. The only survivor, Jes calls for backup and gets former Navy SEAL and alpha werewolf Jake Huang and his new pack. Convinced that the creature who butchered her teammates was a werewolf, Jes doesn't trust them. But if they're going to uncover the facts and make it back home alive, she'll need Jake's help. And with everything on the line, Jes will have to accept Jake for who he is, or lose the partner she never expected to find ...

    WOLF UNDER FIRE by Paige Tyler is the first book in the STAT: Special Threat Assessment Team series. The book mainly takes place in England with a few scenes elsewhere. In this story, supernatural creatures are known to a few, but not all humans. As with humans, some supernatural beings are criminals and the United States has put together a team of supernatural beings and humans to deal with these criminals domestically as well as internationally. STAT agents Jestina Ridley and former Navy SEAL, WOLF UNDER FIRE by Paige Tyler is the first book in the STAT: Special Threat Assessment Team series. The book mainly takes place in England with a few scenes elsewhere. In this story, supernatural creatures are known to a few, but not all humans. As with humans, some supernatural beings are criminals and the United States has put together a team of supernatural beings and humans to deal with these criminals domestically as well as internationally. STAT agents Jestina Ridley and former Navy SEAL, alpha werewolf Jake Huang, and new leader of the STAT team are the main characters in this action packed supernatural suspense, police procedural, urban fantasy and romantic suspense story.The characters felt three-dimensional, with distinct flaws and virtues. Their goals were clear and proactive with believable motivations and appropriate emotions. The world-building was excellent and I felt like I was there with the STAT team. This book was action-packed with high stakes and several plot twists. Romance took a back seat to the action and investigation, but there is one steamy scene about 60 percent of the way through the book. The prose was well-written, descriptive, fluid and captivating. The plot was suspenseful, sinister, intriguing, engrossing, twisty and fast-paced.Overall, this was irresistible, enjoyable, entertaining, engaging, and a fabulous read. If you enjoy action-packed urban fantasies with great protagonists, sinister antagonists, and some romance, then this a series to be considered. I am looking forward to reading more books in this series as well as more books in the author’s other series.Thanks to SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca and Paige Tyler for a complimentary ARC of this novel via NetGalley and the opportunity to provide an honest review. Opinions are mine alone and are not biased in any way.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------Review to be posted around 4/26 per publisher guidelines. See above.

STAT Agent (Special Threat Assessment Team) Jake Huang joins his new team and pack in London to investigate supernatural killings. STAT agent Jes Ridley doesn’t know what killed her teammates, but it wasn’t human and neither is Jake. Trust will have to be earned within her new team mixed of humans and werewolves. A fast moving, easy read with non-stop adventure. Full of action, espionage and hot sex, this new team is dynamic and smart. I enjoyed the action, the beginning friendships and learning the special characteristics of the team. Finding The One makes these romances uplifting and hopeful. Excerpt: “There probably wasn’t a werewolf out there in the world who didn’t know the legend of The One—the thought that Jes might be his had never entered his mind. Seriously, how could she be? Soul mates were supposed to be a one-in-a-million thing. Maybe even one in a billion. “You’ve heard wolves mate for life, right?” Caleb asked Forrest. When the guy nodded, he continued, “Well, in some ways, werewolves do the same thing. There’s supposed to be one perfect person out there for each of us who we’re meant to be with forever. When a werewolf meets his or her soul mate, it’s supposed to be like catching lightning in a bottle.” “Soul mates. Wow,” Forrest breathed. “I mean, Misty and I are solid, but I made a lot of dumb mistakes when we first started dating. Would have been nice to know we’re soul mates the moment we met.” “You’d think so,” Caleb agreed with a snort. “But for some reason, Jake is too busy swimming around in that river in Egypt to notice what’s right in front of him.”Excerpt from Wolf Under Fire by Paige TylerI received a copy of this from NetGalley. I also purchased a copy to share.

With a wider range of supernatural creatures and a larger emphasis on paranormal activities driving occurrences around the world, this should have been an entertaining ride. That much was seen towards the end of Tyler’s SWAT series anyhow, as more and more creatures of the night started stalking the pages, which had gotten me excited. But I definitely took days to finish this without having that sense of urgency of wanting to finish it. In the end, I wasn’t clear what to make of ‘Wolf Under Fire’. Part-travelogue (there was a heck of a lot of place naming as though we needed repetitive reminders that much of story took place in the UK) and part-fast-paced-thriller-type-movie, “Wolf Under Fire” was noisy and messy: there was a whole introduction to a new team, a host of other supernatural characters with their own agendas that stayed unknown until the end. I wasn’t able to take a stab at a clearer trajectory of where the story was heading as the team started out with a case of children-kidnapping, a few more odd dead ends and then to a seemingly unrelated case of a rocket launch for ‘climate-change’ purposes. It only became better towards the last quarter of the book when the storytelling finally settled into a framework I could understand, coupled with a momentum that I was more accustomed to when it comes to Tyler’s more straightforward SWAT-style writing. ‘Wolf Under Fire’ by the end of it, felt like a story that juggled too much, too soon, especially on the character-building front. On their own, Jake/Jes were credible team members, but I stayed rather disconnected to their instalove and their rather forced chemistry, only that Tyler’s established use of trope of the werewolf’s soulmate lent them both sufficient credibility to pine for each other inexplicably even after only knowing each other for a week.I ended this feeling a little more disappointed than usual but hey, there’s always the hope that the series could get better as it rumbles along.*ARC by the publisher via Netgalley

    Action, adventure and love! Wolf Under Fire (STAT: Special Threat Assessment Team #1) by Paige Tyler is a spin-off of her successful SWAT series which is phenomenal. In this new series the STAT team is a hybrid mix of folks that are aware of the supernatural and when necessary take down dangerous supernatural offenders. This is a terrific team and I look forward to future adventures with them all.

The team's mission is to intervene in situations where supernaturals are behaving badly (most humans are unaware of the presence of supernatural beings). I loved Jes. She is a great, strong, female lead. She may not be supernatural but she manages to keep up with everyone else and is a force to be reckoned with. The hero of the story is Jake, a relatively new werewolf who is adjusting to his new role as werewolf alpha and leader of his STAT team. Jake was a perfect blend of alpha male combined with thoughtful protectiveness. I also really enjoyed the supporting characters in this story ranging from werewolves, to someone with the power to communicate with electronics, to other human characters. They made for an interesting and diverse range of characters.The storyline centers around the STAT team's mission to find a kidnapped girl. The story had a great flow to it. We move from place to place with the team as the plot develops. I really enjoyed the fast pace with lots of action. It is a book I did not want to put down!If there was a weakness to the book I think it is that I wanted to know more about this supernatural world. Tyler describes the basics of the world but I wanted more. After I was finished with the book I found out this was a spin off series. The book is definitely enjoyable and completely readable without having read the first series but I'm about to go on a binge of Tyler's previous series, SWAT.

    This was my first read by Paige Tyler and I liked it but I didn't really love it.

It did pick back up towards the end though. What lowered the rating from me also, was Jes, the heroine. I didn't like her. I couldn't warm up to her at all. She just rubbed me the wrong way I guess. I liked Jake, the hero, on the other hand. I also felt like their romance was forced. I didn't feel the chemistry or the attraction between them.Overall this wasn't a bad book, far from it, and I'd recommend it to my frinds despite the things that bothered me about it. I'm also looking forward to reading more from Ms. Tyler.***I received the ARC for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Wolf Under Fire is the first book in Paige Tyler's new STAT series and a spin-off of her SWAT series. My first impression? Awesome! I love Jake and Jestina and the rest of the team. I'm usually pretty good at predicting plotlines but the author hit me with a shock near the end that I never saw coming. A winner for lovers of action-packed paranormal romances!

She ends up,with help from a new team of STAT members of all different types and strengths. Jake the new leader the STAT team called in to help, he’s just trying to get his new pack to all work together. This story was well written and really fun to read. I hope we have more in this series in the near future.

    Jes has has two run ins with werewolves that have ended in death. She is assigned to a new task force to deal with a MI5 agent that includes werewolves. Jake is an alpha ex Navy Seal. He is everything Jes is afraid of or is he? This is an offshoot of the SWAT series and can be read as a stand alone. It is full of action, intrigue and romance. There are so many interesting characters that Mrs. Tyler can add a host of follow-ups, please especially for Caleb and Harley.

    Jake is a tad bit slow on things, even when his woman lays it all out, "...I get it. And I’m okay with it. So stop talking and take me to bed. We have to leave for the mission soon, and I don’t want to waste the rest of the time talking.” Jake stared at her like what she said had completely blown him away." I liked this book, I liked Jake.

Reviewed by GeminiWolf Under Fire is the first book in Paige Tyler’s new Special Threat Assessment Team/STAT series. It’s a spin-off of her Special Wolf Alpha Team/SWAT series which I love a lot. The STAT team is an international task force created to address supernatural threats. The best thing is that the team itself is composed of supernatural beings that had never met until now. Jestina “Jes” Ridley and her original team of humans are assaulted in London while investigating some kidnappings. This forces her to call in help from alpha werewolf Jake Huang who is a former Navy SEAL and the newest member of the team. The team also includes two other werewolves and a supernatural who has the ability to mentally connect with technology. Jes isn’t exactly thrilled to work with werewolves and unfortunately, it shows. Oddly enough, her attraction to Jake makes it difficult to hold onto her disdain for werewolves. Plus, this is what she signed up for. Jake has his own issues as he struggles to adjust to his new role on the team and being away from his newly “adopted” twin daughters who are also werewolves. Wolf Under Fire was very exciting from beginning to end. There were a lot of moving parts regarding the investigation which introduced a new supernatural that you will have to read to believe. Paige Tyler never disappoints as she continues to play off traditional supernatural creatures to create her own versions. The STAT team had a lot of depth and I wanted to get to know all of them. They came together as a team when it counted and really became a family. Jake and Jes had good chemistry plus there is another couple that’s also introduced. I can’t give away a lot about the book itself because I think it would ruin the excitement. Once you start to read, it all comes together like a good action/adventure movie ala Mission Impossible. I can’t wait to read the next book. I can only imagine what new supernatural creature gets introduced next. **Received a copy of the book from the publisher and voluntarily reviewed.**

Jake has recently moved to DC to start a new life and a new job with the twin beta werewolves that he has taken responsibility for. The STAT team is a mixture of werewolves and humans, and nobody really knows each other. Jes is one of the humans of the new STAT team. She is distrustful of the three werewolves that are now part of the team. They all have to get over their individual reservations real quick, when they are sent on a mission to London to investigate the disappearance of a teenage girl. We are introduced to a new species of non-human, who are also the bad guys, but for most of the book we have no idea who they are or what their motivations are. The team learns through trial and error what works and what doesn’t when it comes to taking down the bad guys. This was interesting and things do fall into place very neatly. I liked Jake and Jes, and their romance was okay. I liked them together, but there wasn’t enough spark. Since all the characters in the team are new, there was a lot of time spent introducing them. Each of them is unique and makes a valuable contribution. Caleb especially was an interesting character.The action scenes played out well, and the team definitely learned how to work together.Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC to review.

She's been tracking these kind of cases for a while. When all of her team is killed by werewolves her boss McKay forms a new team she's not to comfortable with. It's composed of 3 werewolves and 2 humans. Jake Huang is the team leader, a former Navy Seal and cop who turned werewolf 4 years ago. The other two werewolves are Harley Grant, a female alpha and Caleb Lynch, a laid back omega. She doesn't know the differences between werewolves and having them on a team is unsettling. Human Forrest Albright looks like straight issue FBI and Mistal Swanson appears fully human but she is a technopath. She can infiltrate any tech and become one with the data. Their first op is to investigate Lord Arran Darby a former deep cover MI6 agent who is a rich jet setter who appears to have gone rogue. Jes quickly realizes not all werewolves are the same and that her team is a good fit. It was quite an adventure seeing these new team members use their gifts and learn to trust each other.

Now she must learn to put that fear aside to save a little child who was kidnapped. Most of the story is centered around Jes and Jakes story, through the book you also learn more about the other people who make up this STAT team. A team that has zero time to train or even really get to know each other before being sent half way across the world to work together. Paige takes you on an adventure from being coop -up in a small house in London to a car chance down the narrow streets and more. She gives you the picture of what the cozy little house looks like. You can almost feel as if you are sitting right alongside the team during mission discussions. I really enjoy how Paige pulls the reader into feeling the confusion of seeing a supernatural for the first time, or even how Jes is scared of how strong her feelings are for Jake after such a short time because he is a werewolf and how she believes they are dangerous. But then you go to the next chapter and you can feel exactly how Jake feels for being judged because he is different and on things he didn't do.

Jake Huang who we have met before is a former Navy SEAL and is the alpha of his new pack. He travels with his new team to join forces with Jestina Ridley who is human and recently lost her team members to what she thinks is a werewolf. So as you can imagine she starts off with some serious trust issues and hesitancy. Jake is strong, sexy and hard to resist and a force to be reckoned with; the rest of his team are equally fascinating-Caleb, Harley, Misty and Forrest all with their own interesting skill-sets/abilities. I really liked the relationship between Jake and Jes, but I also really enjoyed the story as a whole because it has just the right amount of all the ingredients that make up a great paranormal romance! Look forward to more! I received this ARC from Netgalley.

Jake Huang, former Navy SEAL and alpha werewolf, has just been appointed to head a STAT when he and his new coworkers are sent to London to investigate a kidnapping suspected to involve an unknown supernatural threat. Current STAT and former CIA agent Jestina Ridley was already investigating the kidnapping when her other teammates were mauled and killed by a quick-moving shadowy figure with glowing gold eyes. The FBI permanently reassigns Jes to Jake’s team, but Jes doesn’t trust her new team because all of Jes’s prior interactions with supernaturals have resulted the slaughter of friends and trusted coworkers. Despite Jes’s aloof attitude, both she and Jake are drawn together. Will Jes’s prejudice prevent her from becoming an integral, trusted, and effective part of the team? Will attraction prevail over preconceptions? Moreover, WTF are those things kidnapping the kids?I liked it and thought it was a good start to the SWAT spinoff series. This new series looks like it will incorporate a broader range of supernatural creatures as well as a broader territorial scope. The book didn’t really explain how the FBI, which is not an agency authorized to conduct police or military activities on foreign soil, had the jurisdiction to operate outside of the U.S. (permission, invitation, etc.), and there was no local liaison or contact. Because it seems like the CIA, the NSA, or an international agency would have been a better fit, I hope the author includes such an explanation in future books. I recommend this book to fans of the SWAT series, to fans of Paige Tyler, and to fans of urban fantasy featuring romance and law enforcement themes.

However, I think Tyler does an admirable job of filling there reader in on the "rules" of this supernatural world through conversations between her characters. This book is fast-paced and action-filled but also has just the right amount of character interactions and sexy times. It does rely heavily on the trope of "love at first sight," but Tyler has spun that as a part of her werewolf mythology of The One. The sexy times are solidly open door while also being sure to spend time with the tender moments.There is some suspension of disbelief that has to happy with the whole kidnapping/shape-shifting/climate change plotting. Perhaps containing the action to just one continent could have smoothed out some of the awkward transitions. However, this is a small complaint and it didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of the book.The cast of characters here are interesting and I definitely look forward to reading the next books in the series to see Caleb and Harley get their happy endings too. I'd never heard of a technopath before and it will be fun to see what other new supernatural powers that Tyler creates with the rest of this series.

    Having read 5 of the books in Paige Tyler's previous SWAT series, I was already pretty familiar with her world of werewolves, however, I do think this new series can stand alone and that a new reader would have no problem jumping in here. That said, I did find the book a bit more chaotic than her SWAT series.

That said, I did find the book a bit more chaotic than her SWAT series. I think that was because there was a lot to establish up front, a whole new team composed of both werewolves and humans, a new agency (the STAT group), new supernatural creatures, and a host of new locations as this series will be more international in scope than the SWAT series which was mainly set in Dallas. The plot also seemed to be filled with action, maybe just a touch too much so, but it was fast-paced and exciting. Jake was wonderful as the alpha and leader of this new team, determined to meld them together into a "pack". Jestina was initially a bit hostile as she was accustomed to fighting rogue werewolves and didn't think much of supernaturals in general, but she softened as she got to know and started to trust the rest of the team. And of course, it turned out that she was Jake"s "one", his soulmate, so she didn't fight her attraction to him for long. I'll be looking forward to more stories in this series.I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I freaking loved this story. The characters are interesting and the story is non stop action. With a little bit of romance thrown in. Werewolves, technopath, someone who can get into electronics, and a something strange.* Voluntarily read and reviewed this for NetGalley *

    Wolf Under Fire by Paige Tyler is the first book in her new STAT: Special Threat Assessment Team series. The STAT series is sort of a spin off from Tyler’s SWAT series, which also had one of the members from the SWAT team being the hero in this series. The STAT team is assigned unsolvable cases, which will include supernatural creatures. Jestina Ridley, our heroine, works for Special Threat Assessment Team (STAT) and is on assignment with her fellow team mates to investigate a kidnapping, which Wolf Under Fire by Paige Tyler is the first book in her new STAT: Special Threat Assessment Team series. The STAT series is sort of a spin off from Tyler’s SWAT series, which also had one of the members from the SWAT team being the hero in this series. The STAT team is assigned unsolvable cases, which will include supernatural creatures. Jestina Ridley, our heroine, works for Special Threat Assessment Team (STAT) and is on assignment with her fellow team mates to investigate a kidnapping, which horribly goes wrong with the death of her teammates. Jes had a glimpse at a strange creature when she arrived on the scene, but what she may have seen disappeared quickly. Her boss brings her back home, as she is now being placed on a new team.Jake Huang, a former Navy Seal, whom we met in previous SWAT story, has been placed in charge of the STAT team. Jake is an Alpha werewolf, and meets his team for the first time, before they all head to London to work on the kidnapping case. Jes at first is not too keen on some of the members of the team being werewolves, as she fears werewolves were the ones who killed her team. In a short time, she will learn to accept them as good guys, as well as the surprise attraction she has with Jake. The rest of the STAT team were awesome, as I loved them all; Caleb, Misty, Harley and Forest; as well as Zoe & Chloe, whom Jake took under his wing, as part of his pack. I loved the concept of Misty being a technopath, and what she can do. Very cool. Once the team begins to investigate the case, it becomes obvious that more is at stake than just a kidnapping, which could involve high level attacks on political and wealthy people, escalating to a major world changing effect. The team will also discover these creatures (more than werewolves) are difficult to kill. What follows is an action packed, non-stop, exciting thriller that held me on the edge of our seats throughout, unable to put the book down. There were so many dire situations that had the team in danger, with their lives hanging by a thread; Tyler had so many surprises and twists, that kept us on our toes. I loved that over a short period of time, Jes and Jake began to have strong feelings and chemistry between them, and soon Jake will realize that she is the ‘One’. They were so good together. Wolf Under Fire was a sensational start to this series. It was an exciting action filled adventure from start to finish, with a wonderful couple, and great secondary characters, whom I am sure will play major parts in the future books. Once again Paige Tyler gives us fun new series, which I cannot wait to see what she has in store of us next.BarbThe Reading Cafe

When she calls for backup, they send her a new team, headed by a sexy wolf, and she's shocked by her sudden attraction to him. Jake Huang is a werewolf, and a former Navy SEAL and police officer, who's just taken a new job with STAT. He moved to D.C. with the twin teenage girl beta wolves, who he is guardian of, after their parents' deaths. They are his pack now, though the fellow wolf agents on his new STAT team will be his pack too. If they can manage to form a proper team with all their disparate personalities. But, when he meets Jes, he's SHOOK because he's never been drawn to someone as strongly, or as quickly. But what about the whole team dynamic?Jake and Jes felt a connection from the start, but she had to get over her preconceived notions about werewolves, and he had to figure out if the legends he's always heard about "The One" are for real. I loved their little dance around each other, in between all the drama going on with their case. Their team was fascinating too. I enjoyed the dynamics between each of the team members, and how it was a mix of humans and supernaturals. This series was cool because of all the varieties of creatures that were involved in the world. Many were familiar, but with slightly different mythologies, and some were new to me. The suspense plot was exciting and unexpected. I guessed a few of the things, and others had me totally surprised. I really enjoyed all the action and intrigue. The stakes felt real from the beginning, even with the wolves having super healing abilities. Jake and Jes were delicious and their connection was steamy and awesome. I adored them as a couple, and how the whole team really became a family. I'm very much looking forward to the next book in the series!ARC provided by Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    3.5 StarsIntroducing STAT (or Special Threat Assessment Team), the spin-off to Tyler’s SWAT series that goes international the Mission Impossible way. How cool was that! The first entry to the series, WOLF UNDER FIRE hit the right notes on the action flick aspect. It practically started at a run and didn’t pull any punches on casualties suffered by the good side. Of course, this to be expected as the the blurb mentioned (and any werewolf were familiar with) the tragedy that started it all.

Of course, this to be expected as the the blurb mentioned (and any werewolf were familiar with) the tragedy that started it all. As the pilot (to the new series), this book introduced the team assembled and some of them were names we met on SWAT books. The leader of the pack was the ex SEAL first appeared on “Wolf Instinct” that had the werewolves met other paranormal creatures while the Omega had been one of the baddies on “In the Company of Wolves” who was turning a new leaf - those who haven’t are encouraged to check-out SWAT backlist first before diving into this book. True to its vision as the MI of SWAT world, the story had the pack hoping countries hunting the bad guys while trying to solve the puzzle what was it they were after. It was an action-packed, bloodshed, somewhat frustrating yet entertaining adventures following these band of humans and paranormals with their assorted flair and capability. Although after having the team one step behind over three fourth of the book, I really wish the conclusion was being tweaked and twisted more for the final oomph than shown here. Of course there were romantic element to the story that involved member of the team or - in werewolves case - “the One.” As intriguing and sizzling this romantic portion was, it wasn’t what drew me most. It was the motley crew that attracted me the most, the initial prejudice and resentment of the individuals involved as they gradually becoming one of the pack. It’s fun! And I actually look forward to the next installment of the series, hoping a certain loner Omega would get a chance at being happy... 😉Copy of this book is kindly given by the author/publisher via Edelweiss + in exchange for an honest review.

    Jes was on a mission with her teammates when some kind of paranormal creature took out two of her team. She calls for backup and that when Jake and his werewolf teammates come in to help track down the paranormal that killed two of their own. Jake is a werewolf and once he sees a picture of Jes, he's smitten with her before he joins her team. But once they meet he's a little disappointed in how she reacts to him and his team being werewolves. She doesn't know them, does't trust them or him and p Jes was on a mission with her teammates when some kind of paranormal creature took out two of her team. She calls for backup and that when Jake and his werewolf teammates come in to help track down the paranormal that killed two of their own. Jake is a werewolf and once he sees a picture of Jes, he's smitten with her before he joins her team. But once they meet he's a little disappointed in how she reacts to him and his team being werewolves. She doesn't know them, does't trust them or him and pretty much expects him to act like a monster and not the cookie eating, gentleman that he actually is. It isn't until they find themselves in dangerous situations and have to rely on one another that the ice starts to break and they start to trust each other. Jake has felt possessive and wanted to keep her safe even before they became friends but he didn't really understand why. Once they reveal just how much they care about each other, it's hard for them to keep their hands to themselves, even while they still find themselves going on missions to find the kidnapped children. Tracking down the paranormal that killed Jes's teammates and are also kidnapping children brings them face to face with a hard to kill opponent. But once we find out who the bad guys are and what they are really doing it was quite the shock and I really enjoyed the ending. I enjoyed getting to know all of these characters and am looking forward to reading more of this series.

    This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy.Great start to the spin-off series of STAT, a SWAT type team that deals with the supernatural threats. Jake Huang joins the team (he made an appearance in Wolf Instinct with Zoe and Chloe). You don't need to have read that book but it is always fun to see where these characters started out.Jes and Jake are immediately attracted to each other but Jes is a bit leery as this is her first time meeting a werewolf and after watching her previous team memb This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy.Great start to the spin-off series of STAT, a SWAT type team that deals with the supernatural threats.

Along with Jake joining the team, we meet Caleb and Harley (also werewolves), Forrest (human) and Misty (a technopath).This book is filled with lots of action as they try to stop the new threat to the world. Since, the vampires were defeated in the previous book, and Davina mentioned there was a balance in the supernatural world, it is not surprising there is an emergence of another supernatural threat that requires the skills and strength of werewolves! Which means that they will still be finding their "The One"!!This book was so much fun and I cannot wait for the next one in the series and will really be looking for Caleb's story - wonder what kind of woman will be able to handle him!!? I do have to say that when Caleb went crazy werewolf and would not stop holding the dead guy, it was great that Jes was strong enough to go up to him and get him to back down - loved that part!!

International intrigue, inspired danger, espionage, romance, and sex. The fast-paced action was not dimmed by the normal world-building in a new series, it flowed nicely as the newly formed group got to know each other. I only have one tiny issue. Jestina was a trained operative thrust into the world of supernatural creatures, then put into a team of werewolves to help combat the bad creatures. Why was she not trained or informed about werewolf physiology and behavior prior to joining the team? That seemed like a misstep to me.I liked Jestina and understood her being uncomfortable around a pack of werewolves, I also liked that she was smart enough to learn and overcome her issues. She is smart, strong and kick-ass. Jake is the ultimate alpha and hero for this story. The classic strong hero with a heart of gold. They are both well matched and their complex personalities easily shine through during the story. I also enjoyed the new group they’re forming, each getting to know their teammates and learning to trust one another. I look forward to the next installment!*Review copy provided NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.~*~*~*~Kindle https://amzn.to/3ejUHpw

Jake, a wolf shifter and a new member of STAT, has been tasked with leading the newly put together team that will help Jestina find out what in the heck is going on. There’s some missing kids they are trying to find, but that’s just a small part in something much bigger and more dangerous going on. I liked Jake; he’s a nice guy. Jestina starts off hard to like because she’s so rude, but she does get better. The connection between Jake and Jestina did have some passion and their personalities fit well together; there’s some super sweet moments too. The wolf shifter stuff was great; loved how fierce they are. I liked the idea of having a sort of misfits group coming together to form a new team; I especially liked Misty’s power, she can do some super cool psychic stuff with electronics.Lots of entertaining action with plenty of interesting elements to keep you reading. Excited to read the next book in this series! I hope it’s the omega wolf finding his mate; he really needs that type of connection to help keep his wolf in check, should be an awesome read!Netgalley Read
