Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from IndieSage PR and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising"


It has only been a few months since humanity has found out about the shifters that live in their midst. When the New Alliance leadership asks Eric King to join Alpha Squad, a joint taskforce supposed to promote cooperation between the shifters and human authorities, his loyalty to the cause doesn’t give him any choice but to agree. But is the squad actually supposed to be relevant, or is it just an eyewash, set up by the new Secretary for Shifter Affairs to make himself look good? And how is he going to concentrate on his training, when his inner bear is insisting that the squad leader is his true mate?
Major Janine Williams is not at all pleased when she is ordered to set up Alpha Squad. The initiative is just a gimmick, meant to pacify the shifter community, plus none of her male colleagues had wanted the job. But when she starts getting to know her team, especially tough East London bear shifter, Eric, she starts to wonder if perhaps it will be possible to make this task force a success, so long as everyone works together. And so long as she can manage to keep her relationship with Eric strictly professional...



My Thoughts:

Eric King has been asked to be an advocate for his group.  Janine Williams has been given an assignment that goes against the grain.  It’s a story that brings up thoughts of segregation and bigotry.  Just because this piece is fictional doesn’t mean that you can’t feel sorry for the characters that the author has created.  That just means that the author has done a great job in getting the reader involved.

We have two characters that can’t ignore the pull of what some might consider forbidden.  You can see how the connection of Eric and Janine builds over time.  Because of their positions, she fights what they both want but when they finally both give in to that siren call it’s very carnal.  What impressed me about Janine is that she did what was right and not what she was told.  What was great about Eric’s character is that he didn’t judge Janine for what she was told but supported her in doing what is right.  This is a story that I will enjoy more than once.  I also look forward to seeing how this series is going to develop.
