No wolf is safe in USA Today bestseller Terry Spear's new installment of the SEAL Wolf series.
Never be so foolish as to fall for the enemy...
Special wolf agent Jillian Matthews has joined the jaguar-run United Shifter Force to track down a deadly criminal. She's even willing to work with PI Vaughn Greystroke―until the hot, growly SEAL wolf makes the mistake of getting in her way. Naturally, she shoots him. Who could blame her?
Vaughn Greystroke has always worked alone. But when a string of attempted murders puts him in the crosshairs, teaming up with the Shifter Force begins to sound like a good idea. Even if he has to work with alluring―and potentially treacherous―Jillian Matthews. Vaughn is a trained SEAL, after all. He can surely keep his distance from Jillian...no matter how much she's getting under his skin.
SEAL WOLF UNDERCOVER is a good read with witty banter between two strong shifters and a plot that evolves into something bigger than you think it will be when starting the story. The rhythm of the plot is pretty steady and moves in a typical way you'd expect from a book in the Heart of the Wolf series. I was a bit let down that one of the main romantic pairs wasn't a jaguar considering they featured in the story so much. That would have been awesome but at least we get to see the wolves and jaguars work together to hunt the bad guys in this book.
On the romance front, the relationship between Vaughn and Jillian is a slow burn. It's actually so slow that it kind of took a back seat to the main story many times. I liked them together as theirs is a relationship full of snark and bickering (so you know they are destined to be together). Both Vaughn and Jillian are so super headstrong to the point that I wasn't sure they'd end up together which would have been a pretty cool twist in a paranormal romance.
Unlike the previous Heart of the Wolf books, SEAL WOLF UNDERCOVER wasn't that interesting or exciting to me. Typically the action, story, and romance is pretty solid in these books. I enjoyed it well enough but I just wasn't as drawn to anything here as much as I had been in the other books in this series.Series Titles:
