Leaving him was Impossible…
It took everything she had for FBI Special Agent Danica Beckett to walk away from the man she loved. But if she wants to save his life, she has to keep her distance. Now, with a killer on the loose and the stakes higher than ever before, the Department of Covert Ops is forcing these former lovers into an uneasy alliance…whether they like it or not.
Seeing her again is even worse
The last thing Clayne Buchanan wants is to be shackled to the woman who broke his heart. She gets under his skin in a way no one ever has and makes him want things he has no right to anymore. All he has to do is suffer through this case and he can be free of her for good. But when Clayne finds out why Danica left in the first place, everything he’s tried to bury comes roaring back—and there’s no way this wolf shifter is going to take no for an answer this time.
HER LONE WOLF is a fun, suspenseful paranormal romance that leans heavily towards the thriller genre. There are government conspiracies and elaborate chase scenes with a tight plot and tons of twists and turns. The hunt for the murderer is really the highlight of the story and I enjoyed seeing the figure out how to catch him using some creative strategizing considering they had to hide some of their knowledge of supernaturals from the police. I also like the way shifters are integrated into the storyline and the interesting way they are handled in this series.
It was interesting to see how Danica and Clayne's relationship progressed to where it is at the beginning of the book through a series of flashbacks sprinkled around the story. While constantly having flashbacks can come off as tiring or confusing the way its done in HER LONE WOLF is pretty seamless and makes for fun layering of plot points and storylines. I liked seeing them rekindle their relationship and work through the issues they had previously that made the relationship break down. Although the reason for their break up was a bit weird at first the reasoning was finally cleared up with a pretty major plot twist. I also enjoyed seeing these two work together because they are a really well oiled machine when it comes to doing their jobs even after not talking for a few years.
HER LONE WOLF is a action packed romantic thriller with a dash of fur and claws to make things really exciting. This book can be read as a stand-alone as it goes over the details of the worldbuilding pretty well in the first few pages. While I loved the paranormal aspect of this story it could have so easily been just a straight up thriller and still been just as great.Series Titles:
