The Dallas SWAT team of elite sharpshooters is ultrasecretive. This doesn't sit well with investigative journalist Mackenzie "Mac" Stone. They must be hiding something...and she's determined to find out what.
Keeping Mac at a distance proves impossible for SWAT team commander Gage Dixon. She's smart and sexy, and she makes him feel alive for the first time in years. But she's getting dangerously close to the truth - and perilously close to his heart....
Contains mature themes.

"Filled with action-packed passion, the fun, uncomplicated story is easy to get lost in." (Publishers Weekly)
I would love this if it wasn't so damn predictable any Abby Craden didn't sound like she had a frog in her throat when she did the male voices.
I just love this story and Author. Audio books are just as good as sliced bread. Don't get me wrong, I love my books, but audio puts it into another realm of enjoyment. But the reader of this one is special.
No. Could not deal with Mac again.
Mac was a very irritating person. A total jerk.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a very good story. I liked both Gage and Mac and their story was very good and engaging. This is the first book I've read by this author and I liked it well enough I'm likely to try more of her work in the future.
Mac is an investigative journalist. She's made a reputation for herself as being a straight shooter and someone that will do whatever it takes to bring in a story (just as long as it's true). Mac has been too busy with her work to have much a a personal life and her BFF is her camera man.
Gage is the leader of the SWAT team for the Dallas/Fort Worth area. He was turned into a werewolf while in the military and when he got out he decided to become a cop. When Gage took over the SWAT team he brought in cops that were also werewolves from all over so he could make his SWAT team the best in the country.
Gage has done an awesome job with his team and they're considered to be one of the best SWAT teams out there. They're also free of any taint of corruption and while that may make most people happy, Mac sees the SWAT team as almost too clean and perfect. She hears a story from an informant and her instinct is telling her something is up so Mac decides to go after the story no one thinks is there. Mac doesn't have much luck getting an interview, let alone more indepth info on the team, so she starts following them (aka stalking/lurking) around looking for a lead. At one point, Mac decides to try to sneak into a building where a hostage situation is going down (so she can watch the SWAT team in action) and she almost gets herself in trouble and has to be saved by one of the SWAT members.
Gage realized that he had a reporter nosing around but he didn't realize how much of an issue she'd be until he got a sniff of her. The attraction between Gage and Mac is strong and instantaneous on both sides and neither of them are prepared for it. Gage just wants to handle Mac and hopefully get her to not dig too deep into his team. Mac is friendly with Gage as a way to get a story at first but as she gets to spend some time with Gage and the team and soon realizes that she doesn't really want to write a tell-all story on them. Partially this is because the team is made up of good guys but Mac's quickly growing feelings for Gage make her even more reluctant to do something that mess up what's between them. Unfortunately, there are some difficulties and drama because of bad guys and good people that can be idiots (at least temporarily). Thankfully, these issues are surmounted and the story ends with Gage and Mac happily together and starting their HEA.
This was a very enjoyable story. I liked Mac and I thought she was a really good heroine despite a big brain fart moment. Gage was a great hero...nuff said. I liked how the relationship had the whole "fated one" feel to it because the whole story takes place in a short timeframe so it really helped the insta-love work work for me. Overall, I liked the story very much and I had no major complaints about it. I'd recommend this story. :D
Very high. I thoroughly enjoy military/cop/security type books, human or paranormal. This swat team is hot, honorable and loyal. What more could anyone want.
Of course the relationship building between Mac and Gage was good. I liked seeing the team had natural reservations about her considering her job. Then how them came together. Still nothing kept them from their pack loyalty.
Really good. Some female narrators using male voices are just hard for me to listen to. She was not, very believable. Like the accents and the entire book.
The "vote" near the end cracked me up. Laugh out loud funny. Break ups, fear of lost team members very emotional.
I read book two first. Then I went back and got the other two that are out in audio. I Stayed up all night listening to the story--almost 9 hours long.
Missouri Mom with lots of Opinions! Love to listen to Audio Book Series!
This is my first book by author Paige Tyler. I enjoyed her dual POV writing style, characters and storyline.
Abby Carden did a nice job with the narration.
Romances tend to be predictable because either they win or they lose - happy ending or bitter-sweet. It's the surrounding story that makes or breaks it.
The idea of a pack of wolves taking over the Dallas SWAT division can only make you feel secure and curious at the same time. I enjoyed the action, the word play and the characters. And I look forward to visiting this place again.
