Summary

The Dallas SWAT team of elite sharpshooters is ultrasecretive. This doesn't sit well with investigative journalist Mackenzie "Mac" Stone. They must be hiding something...and she's determined to find out what.

Keeping Mac at a distance proves impossible for SWAT team commander Gage Dixon. She's smart and sexy, and she makes him feel alive for the first time in years. But she's getting dangerously close to the truth - and perilously close to his heart....

Contains mature themes.

just not feeling it

I would love this if it wasn't so damn predictable any Abby Craden didn't sound like she had a frog in her throat when she did the male voices.

Paige Tyler has become one of my favorite authors.

MacKenzie is a journalist looking for a story about the Dallas SWAT team. The team seems to be doing their job too well. Rumors are they use performance Inhansing drugs. She meets Gage, the leader of the team. They become smitten with each other, but Mac is still digging for the dirt. She talks Gage into letting her hang out at the SWAT headquarters positive she will discover her big story. Great world and character development. Exciting and not run of the mill story telling.

Enjoyed the Story. Narrator was poorly chosen.

For a book with SO MANY male voices, the author should have paid extra for duet narration. The narrator REALLY struggled with male voices and really did sound like she had a frog in her throat. I pushed through and found the story enjoyable but as others stated, predictable. Not a bad listen for free audible escape. But, many potential readers won't listen all the way through because of the narrator. Also, the narrator made all "voices" VERY loud, but the actual reading of non-speaking parts was very soft spoken. made listening in the car a NIGHTMARE. Dear Author, please pay the extra for duet narration next time. you'll get a LOT more listeners and it will be far more professional. your characters are lovable and over time, i think your writing will improve and be less predictable. But narration alone can gain you a new audience. Trust me, duet narration is worth it. (not dual, duet). ESPECIALLY for books heavy on male voices.

I would give zero stars if I could

The heroine is naive to think that in world where racism and hate crimes still exist that people wouldn’t hunt down and kill were wolves if she wrote a story with hard evidence about them. I was actually hoping the hero wouldn’t forgive her. He deserves better then someone who betray him even if she didn’t end up exposing them in the end.

Great

Great story. I loved how this story unfolded. I do wish for more back story their type of wolves but I do love the protective alpha males. I’m glad the a**hole gene wasn’t so bad that couldn’t stand them, which does happen. Awesome book and I’m definitely listening to the next one!!!

Different strokes, dear listeners

So interesting to read the negative reviews of narrator Abby Craden. After listening to this book, the first of Paige Tyler's SWAT series, I really, really liked the book and the series--which I binge listened to--and really, really, really appreciated Abby Craden's nuanced narration. She's now on my A-list of readers. It's a short list. Since most of the series is in Audible Escape, if you have that, then listen for yourself. You'll know by the first chapter if you want more or not. I ended up buying the two not in Audible Escape and have tagged the coming-soon 10th book on my Watch for audible book list on Amazon. I do hope Ms. Craden continues as the narrator.

an amazing werewolf adventure

in the past few years I have read a large number of books containing shifters or werewolves. this book was undoubtedly one of the best! I hope that each member of SWAT gets his own story.

Not bad

Interesting premise - werewolf shifters as a SWAT team. The overall story flowed well. Mack's idealistic - the world can habdle more than is given credit for and oh, sure people will see werewolves as heros - was a little juvenile for me, but it is fiction. The subcharacters of the team were interesting and definitely added to the overall storyline and set up well for wanting to see what happens with them getting their HEAs. There were lots of detail descriptions but not so much that you are left wondering when the character is going to reply to respond like some jooks have. those are easier for me to read than listen to. The narrator was ok. Voice differences were consistent and inflections were good. Her tone was a little off putting to me, but not so much that it significantly detracted from the story.

Decent story

The story was good enough that I continued to read more in the series. However, the narration isn’t good, and you have to be able to get past that. She over-articulates absolutely everything.

Wolf-tastic lol

The story was well written and easy to follow. It had strong characters throughout the book and it left you yearning for the rest of the pack to find their mate. The only thing that I would say that the author could have done a little better in detailing the crime scene so that part was more believable through pack magic or other supernatural beings that could ‘glamour” the scene because it left you wondering how the humans just accepted that am arm missing or bodies ravished/mauled without an explanation of how the police finally closed the case. These books. If you are a dtonv
