Dylan frowned, "Who are you?" He demanded in a whisper.
"I'll tell you later. For now, kiss me."
He hadn't thought that Blake could get any closer. He was wrong. Blake's body seemed to melt against his, relaxing so that every curve, every line, every inch, was pressed together. He could feel it through the layers of clothing. When Blake kissed him this time, it was strangely slow. He captured Dylan's lips and held them with a firm tenderness that made Dylan's head spin. It had been so long since he had kissed anyone. It had been so long since he had been this close to anyone. He had forgotten what it felt like.
Dylan's mission: assist his Navy SEAL team as they infiltrate enemy territory and gather intel on the new shifter pack called the Shadow Pack through distant observation.
Blake's mission: infiltrate and live within the Shadow Pack and gather any useful information and data from the inside as one of them.
One is a SEAL, and the other is a spy. Their missions were never supposed to cross, yet one fateful accident during a full moon intertwines their fates. Dylan finds himself in the middle of the Shadow Pack and under the charade that he's Blake's mate. They must learn to live and work together, or risk exposing both of their covers, and Dylan's team. Blake is charming, flirty, cocky, and irritating; yet Dylan finds himself strangely drawn to the man. Blake's strength of will and patience are put to the test, but Blake is patient, and he's not willing to give up so easily.

The amount of shifter material and action adventure in this story coulf fit into a thimble. o. Nice book to have if you like M/M romance because that is bulk of the book.
I loved the blend of military and spy work. There was a lot of Dylan learning all about Blake, and Blake learning about how much Dylan had changed. The spy parts were kept vague enough to be believable and keep the story going. Dylan is definitely breaking the mold of the traditional Omega that is usually seen in Romance.
No, I haven't.This performance was very nice, however. I found his narration a little stilted sometimes, but he sounded natural when he spoke for a character. I could always tell that there was a different character speaking easily.
The Alpha of the Shadow Pack (I can't remember how to spell his name). I could not get enough of him and that was a disappointment that I couldn't see interactions between him and other characters. I sincerely hope that Noah gives us more of him in future books!
There is a part of the book that is dubious consent (if not out right rape). Please keep this in mind when picking up this book. Skip the scene if it makes you uncomfortable.
I had first read this book and now listening to it, it brought back the difficulties I had reading this book. I don't like manipulation. I didn't see why Blake kept that fact that Dylan had known Blake years ago wasn't divulged. Then again, Blake does seem to like being the one with the secret. It does fit with his personality to play the 'game' to see if Dylan can figure out the rules.
Sometimes it smacked close to Stockholm Syndrome, but I honestly don't hold that against the story. It could have turned out so much worse, but Noah Harris wrote his characters and scenes masterfully. I was kept just on the edge of being uncomfortable and frustrated right there with Dylan, as well as cocky and self-assured as Blake.
A well narrated and written story! I highly recommend!
A okay story and could have done with a more developed storyline and characters to have more impact.
