For love or for honor? Sometimes being fated to each other just isn’t enough.
For the past six months, wolf shifter Thomas Blackwood has been serving two masters. He believes in Alpha Squad’s mission to help the newly outed shifter population integrate into human society, and has done his best to contribute to its success. At the same time, he’s been reporting on the squad’s activities to his alpha back home. But everything changes when the squad is sent in to investigate a string of crimes with a pack of renegade wolves right at the center of the case. Suddenly Thomas must choose: follow his alpha’s orders and kill the investigation before it even starts, or remain true to Alpha Squad’s calling and uncover the truth; whether it implicates members of his own species or not.
And that’s not even the worst part: the woman he’s been admiring from afar since joining the squad already doesn’t give him the time of day. What would Private Callahan think of him if she knew he was a traitor?
Private Jill Callahan has been doing her utmost to ignore the one Alpha Squad member who could turn her world upside-down: Thomas Blackwood. From the moment the handsome wolf shifter arrived on base, her emotions have been trying to get the better of her. So in the interest of maintaining her professionalism, she has been avoiding him completely.
When Blackwood starts acting suspiciously, and nobody seems to notice it but her, Jill no longer has that luxury. She feels compelled to investigate what’s really going on and if it ends in heartbreak, then so be it.
Jill and Thomas’s loyalties are tested when they realize why they haven’t been able to shake their attraction to each other. They’re meant for each other, but sometimes things just aren’t so simple. The mission- and the squad -must come first.

I liked this one. It was a change of pace with Thomas and Jill’s budding romance giving the usual action-packed drama a different flavor to savor. Unlike the previous installments, both squad members have their orders to fulfill, and despite the attraction they feel towards each other, neither wish to act on it. She takes her duties seriously, and he’s bound to obey his Alpha. So how, may you ask, does it end?
Well it certainly ends on a happy note, and everything works out. It seemed a little fast for me, though. Thomas does some things that really escalated the story, and their sudden okay with the connection gave me just a bit of whiplash, mainly because they go from ignoring each other to then being on page and talking about the next stage in the relationship. I may not have connected with it as much as I did the other ones, but I still enjoyed myself. I really like the world Moone created with the shifters being ousted and forced to co-exist with a very wary human race. I hope to see a bit more of that world in the next installment.
