After a massacre decimates half his team and leaves him crippled, Jaxon Law must relearn how to fight-and battle the anger and guilt threatening to overwhelm him. But when he rescues a beautiful woman who awakens his primal instincts, Jax is unprepared for the dangers that lie ahead.
On the run from her employer, brilliant lab assistant Kira Locke has evidence that leads the Alpha Pack on a hunt for someone targeting human civilians with Psy abilities. And as Jax and Kira circle both the killer and each other, Jax will have to decide if the deep connection he feels with Kira is worth breaking the ultimate shifter rule-because bonding with Kira means putting his abilities at risk, and they might be the only tools he has to keep his mate alive.

"[Fans] will fall head over heals for the Alpha Pack!" (Angela Knight, New York Times best-selling author)
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
This book has everything, ex Navy Seal were-men with supernatural 'gifts', genetic experiments, shape shifters, bad guys, sex and romance. J D Tyler throws more strange characters with weird abilities into the story as it unfolds and they can be brought forward to be part of the story or left in the background for another book. It reminded me of JR Ward's BlackDagger Brotherhood or Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld. So if you loved them then you will love this new series I am sure.
The narrator did a good job too.
These books are going to be an automatic download for me, now I just have to be patient and wait but it could end up a series of at least 7 or much more mmmmm delicious.

Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Unfortunately this was one of those books that just didn't float my boat. I like the background that was created, but the characters just didn't get me all that excited. Although I didn't hate the characters, I just didn't like them overly and was debating to even finish the book. I mean the first sex scene had Jax smelling of another woman, and like an idiot Kiara didn't even blink an eye when she jumped into bed with him. It didn't feel sexy to me, but a wham, bam thank you ma'am. The second half of the book was an improvement and I might be willing to try the next book, but I will probably wait for a sale. Of course I have read/listen to much worse and stayed the course. The narrator was wrong for the part, although she did a good job it just seemed like she wasn't the right fit for these characters. I do like shifter books and I recommend Suzanne Wright, Thea Harrison and Nalini Singh.
As the title suggests, this is the beginning of a series. While an incomplete story is expected, I find most authors find a way to give the ending a sense of completion while still enticing the reader to continue with the series. This one lacked a sense of completion. It might as well have had "To Be Continued..." at the end. Also, I usually like a little sex thrown in with a story, but I found these sex scenes tiresome and unexciting. Fortunately, the overall story had just enough interest to it that I think I may buy the next in the series--though with some hesitation. The slightly better reviews for the second release are enticing me. The narrator did a nice job. It kind of cracked me up that she used such a serious voice. Talking about shape shifters and secret government experiments is serious business, people! It didn't take me long to get over that and just to get into the fun of it, and she definitely brought the characters to life. If you've never read/listened to other shape shifter fiction, there are better options for a newbee. If you listen to audible books a whole lot and are exhausting your options, this is not a bad choice.
Say something about yourself!
It took me forever to listen to this book, I have had it for about 7 months but other things just kept popping up and I wasn't sure I wanted to get into another series...well THAT was the wrong call!
This book was great! There were hot alpha males, action packed drama, a medical side of shifting, a mating side of shifting and hot hot hot scenes! The characters were wonderful and so was the plot. There was one thing in the book I really didn't like...how does a seer not SEE the big picture? Or how an op will go? That part annoyed me, but I am off to book 2!
Credit or buy, it's that good!
Cut back on the sex scenes. One description of mating is good enough. Should be a rabbit pack not wolves. Seemed to detour the story.
Possibly not sure yet. Storyline has promise but sex scenes repeated over and over a "turn-off".
Did well with what she had to work with.
Probably not. The sex in this book had me wishing they would just finish so the story could continue. I'll have to find a book that doesn't go so overboard.
I like the subject but the sex episodes were too explicit for my taste.
I enjoy books about shapeshifters and mythical beings. This book was interesting and would I would have enjoyed more story and less sex.
I have found that in the past, when a book has lots of sex in it, the reader gets a weak story.
This book is a perfect example. I was interested in the premise. Shape shifters, Navy Seals, intrigue, I couldn't wait. Should have waited. For every interesting event, sex, the description of sex and/or body parts attributing to sex introduced. All right, already. Get on with the story...
Kira sounded competent and determined. She lost her way, big time. The rest of the group were very disappointing.
If you like the "Bodice Ripper" scenarios, this book might be for you. Otherwise, don't waste your time.
Great story, full of action, and full of steamy steamy deliciousness! Oh, and the narrator--one of my favs--was excellent as usual.
I love the characters, every one of them. I was hooked from the beginning and was drawn in more and more as it continued.
Yes, she is a great narrator, I love all the voices she does.
Too many to count! I loved all the interactions between Jackson and Kira--I can't get enough of that primal love between them! The ending was a moving point in the book as well, heart wrenching to say the least.
Love this book!
I loved this book. It was my first Alpha book ever and it pulled me in with the different types of people and there backgrounds. I was confused at first if it was a love story or was it all about the pack and to find out the truth was in lighting. I hope the rest of the series will be added and if not I can see myself reading the books.
This is a terrific series, and a good twist on typical shifters. J D Tyler has a couple of more books in print with more in the pipeline. I hope there isn't' a long wait for the rest. Kalen blossoms but is in for a surprise, but that's all I'm gona say. There are more twists and turns to come. Kirsten Potter doesn't disappoint and portrays the guys and their banter really well. I hope she does the rest of the series - soooooon!
