Review

An explosive new series that pits a newly created team sent in to rescue a child and stop a powerful villain from his twisty plot was an intense and sizzling opener of a story.

Wolf Under Fire is the first in the Special Threat Assessment Team series that spins off of SWAT- Special Wolf Alpha Team.  A reader could jump in here and not be lost, but there are references back to the events in Wolf Rebel, SWAT #10.

The story opens when human STAT operative, Jestina Ridley is sent to London with her team to help rescue a kidnapped child.  They are sent in because there seems to be a supernatural behind the kidnapping.  No sooner is she in place than her team is attacked and she can verify the supernatural.  She is just a little hostile toward the new team sent out especially when she discovers that three werewolves are part of the team. Jake Huang, alpha werewolf and former SEAL team member and ex cop, is the new team leader and he gets under her skin from the moment they meet.  They have a job to do and she needs to get past her trust issues when it comes to supernaturals particularly when Jake saves her life at risk to his own even after he is aware that she judged him before even giving him a chance.

Jake isn’t sure about this new venture working for STAT especially when he ends up with a team of individuals who seem anything but team players particularly the veteran human operative, Jes, who barely disguises her disgust at what he is.  They have to come together as a team because a kidnapping mission goes sideways fast when the team is pitted against seemingly unstoppable mysterious supernaturals who have an agenda behind their kidnapping.  With so much on the line, why is Jes dominating his thoughts and her attraction so strong?

Wolf Under Fire was exciting from the opening scene and never lagged or lost my interest.  I do love when a spin off series packs the punch of the strongest in the previous series.  I loved how this book explored a world of special operations with a strong supernatural twist while bringing together a sensational heroine and hero for a romance and a whole team of friends that I want all their stories.  

Jake was a side character in the book, Wolf Rebel, and he stood out so I was glad he became the first STAT team to get his story.  He was strong and a good leader, but also was patient through the hurt he felt when Jes reacted to him being a werewolf.  Now, to be fair to Jes, she attempted to keep it professional and, considering what she was thinking, her reaction was moderate.  She earned full respect when she analyzed and realized that she was treating Jake and the other werewolves as bad guys just because she had encountered bad shifters and she really knew nothing about shifters and particularly werewolves.  She became a team player and was willing to learn.

One of my favorite things about the SWAT series was the team camaraderie so I was glad to see it here for Jake, Jes, and the four others who seemed like a motley crew until the dangerous work and situation brought them together.  I can’t wait to see what comes next for the team and the next member to get their story.

As to the action side of the plot, shazam, it was sizzling cloak and dagger that kept me on the edge of my seat and some really great adrenaline action scenes.

In summary, Wolf Under Fire was abso-fab and fueled me up for more hot paranormal romance from the series.  Definitely recommend.

Sounds like this was an exciting read with the suspense plot line and then the two main character havign to learn to work together and deal with their attraction as well. It’s really great when a spin-off series starts off well.That sounds ncie how Jess is willing to learn and adjust her opinion about werewolves. And the team camaraderie sounds well done!
