Danger shouldn't be this sexy...
Cougar shifter Abby Carter always plays it safe. That's why she's an accountant--no excitement, no danger, and no cocky alpha males. She loves her quiet life, but fate has other plans. When Abby uncovers the shady dealings of an anti-shifter organization, she'll have to trust the too-sexy-for-her-peace-of-mind werewolf Declan Reed... or end up six feet under.
Declan Reed is starting over. After two years with Shifter Operations Command, it's time to put his past behind him. Now Declan is the only thing standing between the gorgeous Abby and an early grave, and if he's going to have any chance of keeping her alive, he'll have to embrace the darkness he's fought to keep at bay. But first he has to convince Abby that there's no safer place in the world than the arms of a big bad werewolf.
Declan Reed is part of Shifter Operations Command. He was once a killer for hire but put his past behind him and was trying to be a better person. SHOC consisted of the most dangerous men who were trying to do good things, so he was in good company. Declan’s SHOC team is on a job trying to get info to see if a company, FosCo, is involved in feeding money into the shifter hate group, Unified Humanity. While observing the building, Declan sees Abby Carter. She’s an accountant that is doing an audit for FosCo, and Declan can’t seem to keep his eyes off of her. When she digs into an account she was told to stay away from and sees that they are indeed filtering money into UH the owner of FosCo is alerted and Abby’s life seems to be in danger. Declan doesn’t wait around but goes to save her. He ends up taking her and hiding her from everyone – including his team and this makes him a rogue.
Abby isn’t sure what’s going on. She knows that what she found at FosCo is horrible and that people are after her to get the info – she just doesn’t know who to trust. She’s pretty sure that Declan is a good guy but she’s not positive. Despite not knowing about him, she’s still attracted to Declan and doesn’t let a little thing like her life being in danger stop her from showing that attraction. Of course she’s not sure either of them will live to do anything about it in the future.
This was a cute paranormal story. I liked both Abby, Declan and his entire SHOC team. I read this in one sitting as it was a fast read.
Abby was a great character. She was strong – she’d had to be her entire life – and wasn’t about to let Declan boss her around. I loved the fact that she didn’t let anyone push her around. Yes, she was scared at times but she still showed her strength throughout her trials.
Declan was alpha male all the way. He wanted what he wanted and no one was going to stand in his way. He was rough and tough and had been a been a killer for hire – not an ideal background – but he was gentle with Abby and wasn’t afraid to show her his softer side.
Overall the book was a good one and I enjoyed the beginning of this new series.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5
