This is the first in a three part saga each of which concerns the River brothers who are all werewolf shifters, this story focussing on the pack Alpha, Jaxson. The brothers run a highly successful security business with Jaxson, a former SEAL, being the CEO. The current problem facing all shifters in the area is that someone is kidnapping them off the streets and ones that have been released have been severely traumatised by what has happened to them. Jaxson’s personal problem is that he needs to find a mate or step down as alpha but he has a secret reason why he’s reluctant to select one . . . .
Olivia Lilyfield has grown up in the care system after both her parents were killed by fire. Her Mum was a witch and Olivia has magical abilities but is determined not to use them (-if you read the book you’ll find out why!). After resigning from her job she is walking home when she discovers a wolf being tormented in an alley way by two men. Olivia goes to his rescue armed with her camera phone! Olivia and Jaxson are dynamite, their attraction explosive but their magic could be lethal for both of them, especially as witches and wolves just don’t get on and werewolves don’t trust witches! Who is attacking the shifters – and why? Can the two resist each other or find a way to enable them to achieve their HEA?
This is a lovely shifter story where the Alpha falls for someone who should be outside his circle as an enemy. Meanwhile others are attacking the packs but none of the shifters know why, so drama is inevitable! The characters are well written, the plot develops at a fast pace and, although this story finishes with a HEA, there are clearly future problems and further battles ahead. I look forward to reading more in this series! If you like shifter romances with the pack against attacking enemies you’ll probably enjoy this series, too. In many ways the overarching theme reminded me of the Moon Series from Lisa Kessler, so if you enjoy that series I suggest you give this one a go, too.
PG Not recommended for under 18s because of explicit sexual content.
