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)
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.

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.
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.
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!
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
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!
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
This book was soo awesome... I have re-listen to this like 20 times... so my review is kinda late... but an instant download for all of J.D. Tyler's wolf pack sereis...
This series have totally alpha male wolves who were once in the Navy Seal, they got bit by rouge werewolves and now they work for a secret branch of the goverment to stop all the paranormal criminals...
They each have gifts beside being wolves, like this book is about Jax who is a pre-cog, with a bum leg... Jax's girlfriend Barrel betrayed him and his team of Alpha pack and got their leader and a few team members killed....
6mths later, Jax finds his true bond, Kara and brings her to Alpha pack base, with their new leader Nick and the rest of the Alpha pack team. He don't know Kara is his true bond mate, but he gets all ALPHA possessive about her.
It is filled with action, love and smex! I love the smex, wolf style... I gobbled this down in one setting. So different from other wolf stories... The plot don't really center around them being wolves, but it actually does because they are called Alpha pack. The way it's written, you hardly even notice the wolf thing... it more about the plot and action surround the wolf pack. Loved it!
Narration was top notch. So many voices, for so many characters. You can totally tell who is who just by the voices used. I mean Potter is a pro, a real pro. Just to even have Potter narrate means, you know this is gonna be one great book. Potter is one of those narrators who seem to only narration awesome books, like Xe Sands, Shirley Rae and Jim F.
This is a buy, credit or sale. Either one...you can't go wrong!
its a good pass time, but not spectacular. i wouldn't buy it again.
it was good
For the first book in the series this was great a little love sex and action. Has a good ending and a great setup for the serise. I'm looking forward to each team member finding there mates and wins the war.
Most likely. I enjoyed the book enough to listen again. Not all books are worthy of a second listen. Also, I thought Kristen Potter did a really good job with the narration.
When Jaxon is hurt and very weak from not mating. It was so memorable because of Kira's reaction. It was extremely sad and I couldn't help but cry. Another memorable moment was when Jaxon and Kira released they love each other.
When ChurpChurp (?) was sleeping on Kira's stomach, Jaxon came across them. In that scene, he knew he loved her. Also liked how he became close to ChurpChurp.
Yes, made be laugh and cry.
This could have been a good story, but there was just way too much over the top sexual content. If you are into porn, this one is for you. Not me. I would have wanted the next installment as far as the basic story went, but have no desire to even listen to it because I thought all that graphic and unbelieveable sex just ruined the story." Do you like that Baby?" Give me a break. If you cut out all the graphic sex, the story was really short! I felt sorry for Ms. Potter having to read that trash! And no, I am not a religious zealot, it was just way, way too much.
All the over the top, graphic sex. It just went on and on and detracted from the story.
Won't be reading or listening to anymore of Ms. Tyler's "Sex" books.
