Publication Date: May 8, 2017 
Genres: Adult, Entangled: Select Otherworld, Paranormal, Romance



Buttoned-up Corporal Kaitlyn Amador is dangerous on every level. As a human, she poses a threat to Marine Captain Jax Raymond’s special Force Recon unit. Though the team has a reputation among the other recon units, only their commanding officer knows their secret. As a woman, the danger posed is entirely different. Jax can survive the temptation for only so long before his wolf takes over and pursues what it wants. Military intelligence specialist Corporal Kaitlyn Amador is the first woman in the Marines to be assigned to a recon team. And everyone’s watching her. Her mission? Not only prove herself worthy of her place in the group, but uncover the mystery of why Bravo Team is so successful. A mission that gets more difficult every time she’s near Jax… 


My thoughts: 

While the story line was very similar to another Shifter Romance I listened to recently, I found this one head and shoulder's above the other one! There was so much more explanation about how the wolf packs work, their work with the government, and even character development. The chemistry between Jax and Kat was evident from the beginning - I loved how he was humble yet confident and how sassy and independent Kat was. You also knew from the very beginning that developing their relationship would be difficult; not only is Jax her commanding officer, they've both been given the assignment to undermine the other!

This book was definitely a slow burn, you don't get to their first kiss until after the 50% mark and the real nitty gritty doesn't happen until about 75%, but the journey is well worth it! I literally could not put the book down once I started and while I didn't understand some of the technical Marines terminology, I appreciated the attention to detail that the author gave the story. Reading about how Kat earned the respect of the rest of the wolves on Bravo Team and how she and Max struggled with their attraction to each other was an absolutely page-turning experience. I gave this 4.5 out of 5 wine glasses and I can't wait to read about the rest of the team as the series continues!
