Book reviews à la bookworm...The good, the bad, and everything in between.
The DPD SWAT unit is about to get a new recruit. But this time it's a woman, to appease the city politicians. Luckily the commander of the squad had some say in the matter and he found the one to better mesh with the team, since she's a werewolf as well.
Khaki Blake might be a fairly new one (barely three months since her change), but she jumps at the opportunity to leave her job in Washington State behind, since her ex (also a cop) has been making her life a living hell. Then she comes to Dallas and it quickly becomes apparent, her squad leader, Xander Riggs might also make her life a living hell, since it's obvious the guy cannot stand her. A pity, since he's very easy on the eyes, and smells absolutely delicious.
It's not that Xander cannot stand Khaki, his behavior is due to the fact he wants nothing more than to jump her bones. She's The One, but she's also his subordinate, and she's just come off a bad office romance. It might kill him, but he's determined to stay away from her...Until chemistry cannot be denied any longer and the two break all the rules.
Yet another amazing addition to this series. The romance was better than in the first book, mostly because of the "conflict" of the two coworkers getting all hot and bothered about each other and trying to hide it from everyone, but also because the two protagonists worked better together, not to mention the fact they were both werewolves trying to fight the impossible-to-fight attraction between them.
The main suspense (about the bank robbers) played second fiddle to the real twist in the end (my hunch proved to be right), but it all served to propel the plot forward, also serving as catalyst for the romance between Khaki and Xander to come out into the open.
But what worked the most (as in its predecessor), was the team. The characters themselves, their relationships, interactions, and camaraderie are the pillars this series is really based on...And what I'm looking most forward to when I start reading.
