The Delight

A shifter looking for action only to find his mate in need of saving. No pressure dude, but the world is about to get even scarier. Shifter testing. Check. Destined mates. Check! Compound full of sexy alpha shifters…sign me up!

Primal Law was such a shocker of a romance for me. Why? Well, I just didn’t think I was going to like it. I bought the audio book twice…how did I do that? I have an Audible and AudioBook credit service and they were building up. I started using them not remembering what I bought where. Good thing too because one of them got corrupted and I had to switch to the other to finish. Oh and throw in some reading time since I read faster than listening to books. Enough about my woes.

Alpha Pack is a group of soldiers who were brutally turned in to wolf shifters. Those that survived, created Alpha Pack to help fight the paranormal battles of the world. Jaxon Law is one of those soldiers. After a mission goes bad, Jax is left with wounds on the inside and out. Along with some of his fellow soldiers and shifters, Jax heads off to Las Vegas for sex and some fun with his usual prostitute, only to meet up with his true mate, Kira. Kira’s on the run after stealing suspicious samples from the lab she works. Now on the run, against time and threats coming from all sides, these two have more than just saving each other, but deciding if they want to be mates.

Jax is your typical man whore of a shifter. This isn’t the first time he has been in love, but it is the first time he recognizes this woman is his mate. He blames himself for a mission gone wrong and is reluctant to believe this woman won’t cause him to lose his senses again. But when you find your mate and don’t claim her, you are living on borrowed time that ultimately ends in death. Jax refuses to pressure Kira for something she can’t give. He becomes the sexy martre that you want Kira to love.

Kira was a pretty kick ass female that sometimes didn’t know when to back off. She takes on the paranormal world pretty easily. In fact she takes on helping the creatures Alpha One has captured but don’t feel are terminal cases. Sometimes though I thought she was an idiot in face of rehabilitating creatures she has no clue about nor what they can do. She held out on Jax, wanting true love and not a mating bond telling her what to do.

The chemistry between these two kept my Kindle warm with dialog like this:

“I love your devious little mind. And you look so sweet on the outside, too.”

“It’s part of the disguise.”

“Let’s go somewhere private so I can strip it off.”

Now…Primal Law did suffer some from that first book problems and I wobbled on giving it 3.5 stars of 4. The book opens up with a battle that turns in to a massacre. You don’t know exactly where they got the intel on the mission. So when they have future missions, you suspect the intel and wonder why the heck they don’t have a better plan. In fact you don’t know the hierarchy…or if the government knows about them…who the higher up in charge is or even if there is one.

The sexy part that had me wishing I could join Alpha Pack One was all those unattached alpha shifters and their hot bodies…I mean mind….nope I do mean bodies. There’s Ryon, Hammer, Aric, Nick, Kellan, Zan and probably some more that I am forgetting. All so different, all with an agenda, all with limbidos that need satifying more often than a human males.With all these alphas in one place you have to wonder where the women are *winks*.

The story leaves one character’s life in the balance, the hope of finding a team mate they thought was dead and a team of men to ravish. I jumped right into the second book ready to take on the next alpha hero.

Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince. When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!
  • LOL! I’ve only read this one in the series and I thought some of the same things you did. My favorite part was the Alpha Pack team and how they were like brothers. Not sure when I’ll get to the next books, but I’m definitely reading on.

      I just finished Savage Awakening, the second book about Aric and Rowen. It was good but it too suffered from plans you wonder why weren’t checked out or even if they were, but who? The world building is wonderful, just needs a few things made clearer to smooth out the WTF are you thinking moments.

      • I thought that too a few times with the first one especially that end scene when it all went bad that for spec ops people they were a bit vague. I was so shocked by that last scene with Aric and his surprise captor so I do look forward to teasing out that one.

          And I loved that they scented one of the team members they thought was dead. That gets a partial resolve in Savage Awakening. Still tons more we need to know. Book 3 will be on my list once I get through some review requests. Trying to catch up.

          • Oh yes, I forgot about the other guy. That was a good plot thread too.

            Yep, other requests is what stopped me from just pressing on with them. So many good books out there. 😉

  • Oh yay! I read the last in the series and haven’t gotten to this one. I think part of it’ll be a little spoiled for me because I kinda know the whys on where the plans come from and vetting and such. Was totally someone they should have been able to trust.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Hmmm…well, I guess I need to catch up on reading so this doesn’t bother me any more. I know someone they should trust is betraying them based on them scenting Micah when they believed he was dead. I don’t want to reveal too much here, but I am getting ready to write the Savage Awakening review. Hard not to explain the book some without giving away plot points.
