Navy SEAL wolf turned PI Vaughn Greystroke has always worked alone. But when a string of attempted shifter murders put him in the path of an alluring—and potentially dangerous—she-wolf, having a partner doesn't sound so bad...
SEAL Wolf Undercover by Terry Spear (SEAL Wolf, #22)
She shot him, she actually shot him and in a case of mistaken identity, shooting first and asking questions later almost cost Vaughn Greystroke his life, but she also had his inner wolf completely intrigued, in lust and wanting out. Jillian as looking for her brother in his friend’s remote cabin when he didn’t answer his cell or show up at the cabin they had rented. What she found was blood, and the body of the cabin owner, barely clinging to life. Then, there was the noise, and she took chase. What she didn’t know is that she wasn’t alone in her discovery and the shadow she was shooting at was Vaughn, chasing the real perp.
In a small world story, they had not only seen each other before, but they had a connection going even further back and both of their animals were hooked and determined to get what they wanted, but first, there was evil to catch, questions to answer, including where was Jillian’s brother? Was he another shifter victim or had he run for the hills to save his own hide? Was there a woman involved in the deaths? Why? Was she a “Black Widow” or was there something more nefarious going on? The questions continue to mount, and the plot thickens as the heat between two strong shifters grows.
Terry Spear’s SEAL WOLF UNDERCOVER is a good read. With quirky bickering, and one-liners, two strong shifters must work together, one on the job, one originally not involved, although his SEAL training couldn’t let him turn away. Their passion was kept low key, yet obvious while not overpowering the action, but seemed to be a bit rushed at the end. As always Terry Spear delivers solid writing, action and characters that are well-defined, but this one lacked her usual spark and sizzle her characters exude for me. There just wasn't that fresh twist to grab me around the throat and drag me in all the way. Maybe I expect too much from this talented author who rarely fails to deliver for me?
I received an ARC edition from Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for my honest and voluntary review.
