Review by Twinsie Melinda
I purchased this book.
I am enjoying this shapeshifter SWAT team. I love that when they find their mates these big tough alphas are brought to their knees. What do you get when a Hawk and a Lion are fated mates and family enemies? One intense mating and a not so happy family.
Hawk found his mate when he went to collect his cousins who stupidly crashed a lion shifters party. Both Saffy and Hawk were surprised to find their fated mate was from a rival shifter family. Hawk and Saffy could not be happier that they found each other. If only the families felt the same way.
Even though I had the feeling of a Romeo and Juliet vibe it didn’t end the same thankfully. I am enjoying these short reads and getting to know the shifters on the SWAT team. I am intrigued to read ICE the Polar Bear next.
