I received a copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley in return for an honest review.

Story Overview:
With the ultimate alpha male hero-werewolf Finn Emerson, Navy SEAL-bestselling author Terry Spear ratchets up the heat in the new installment in her hugely popular paranormal romance series.
While her brother is away, Meara Greymere intends to play-she just has to find the right alpha male. But when old friend Finn Emerson arrives, she's horrified he'll tell her brother what she's been up to.

Finn Emerson is on the trail of a murderous gray werewolf and fears his friend's sister is in grave danger. He's just going to have to settle in and keep the sexy woman out of trouble.

My Review:

First things first, this is #9 in this series. I have not read any of the others and you certainly don't need to for the enjoyment of this book. This truly works as a stand-alone novel.

Finn is part of an all-wolf-shifter SEAL team. When one of the team is attacked, they quickly realize that the entire team has been targeted. Hunter is part of the team and he is the alpha of his pack, but he just left on his honeymoon, leaving his sister, Meara, home to take care of things there. Every single one of the guys on the SEAL team would love to be mated to Meara, but Hunter has warned them all off. He doesn't want her mated to a SEAL and quite honestly, she doesn't want that either. When the threat to the team comes, Finn is dispatched to protect Meara. It quickly becomes clear that she is definitely in the assassin's sights and she is not happy about it. She had planned to take full advantage of this two-week period without her brother hovering and find a mate. Having Finn hovering as a substitute is not acceptable.

This was a fun book to read. The fact that I enjoy reading books with shifter storylines and military heroes...well, you get the idea. It would have been hard for me not to enjoy this book.

Meara wasn't my most favorite heroine ever...her search for a mate had a thread of desperation to it that I didn't like, especially when the author presented her as a character that every guy was practically tripping over to try to mate her. I didn't quite get that. I get that she has an overprotective brother, but the other side of the storyline is about how much he's gone for the SEAL's and not working as alpha. It seems to me that if he's gone that much, then Meara could have found a mate just fine without him hovering. The two sides just don't mesh.

I enjoyed the book. It read really easily and definitely kept my attention. I would read more of these to come if more of this SEAL team was featured especially the enigmatic Bjornolf...yum!
