Name: Declan MacBride
Rank: Munitions Expert, Dept. of Covert Ops
Status: Bear Shifter
Objective: Protect Kendra at all costs
The steamy Costa Rican jungle brings out the bear in Declan MacBride when he and new operative Kendra Carlsen are ambushed. In the midst of relying on each other to survive, and fighting his explosive attraction to Kendra, this shifter is about to lose control…
Thoughts: Oddly enough, this book/series reminded me vaguely of the Killer Instinct series by Elle Kennedy with an odd little twist of the paranormal thrown in there. Plenty of action/suspense, but with the shifter element thrown in there. I hadn’t read the prior books in this series, but I have to say that didn’t bother me at all in this case. The story was still easy to follow and pick up on all the happenings within the story – although you definitely will wind up wanting to grab the previous books in the series!
Apparently, Declan has had a thing for Kendra for awhile – and, of course, as with the way these instances usually work, the moment he decides to move on, she sits up and takes notice. Although, there are depths her character that Declan was unaware of – until they get thrown together on a mission and circumstances push them closer and closer together.
I enjoyed this title immensely, and this is one series that I’ll be backtracking on and reading prior books in the series!
