I've been on something of a werewolf binge lately so I was happy to discover this new series from Heather Long. Bravo Team Wolf is about a Marine Force Recon team made up entirely of werewolves. Sounds good, right? Let me tell you about the first book in the series, When Danger Bites, and its author. And don't forget to enter the giveaway at the bottom of the post.

Buttoned-up Corporal Kaitlyn Amador is dangerous on every level. As a human, she poses a threat to Marine Captain Jax Raymond’s special Force Recon unit. Though the team has a reputation among the other recon units, only their commanding officer knows their secret. As a woman, the danger posed is entirely different. Jax can survive the temptation for only so long before his wolf takes over and pursues what it wants.Review:
Military intelligence specialist Corporal Kaitlyn Amador is the first woman in the Marines to be assigned to a recon team. And everyone’s watching her. Her mission? Not only prove herself worthy of her place in the group, but uncover the mystery of why Bravo Team is so successful. A mission that gets more difficult every time she’s near Jax…
I've read a few series about werewolf or shifter Black Ops groups, but Bravo Team Wolf is the first one I've seen to feature active military. The political and chain of command elements gives When Danger Bites a slightly different feel from anything else I've read.
For most of the story, the obstacles to Kat and Jax's relationship are orders and regulations. When they do encounter an actual villain it wraps up quickly, and I felt like a little too neatly. But I found the intense romance story compelling all by itself. It kept me riveted! However, I felt like the ending was a bit cheesy and cute given the intensity of the rest of the story.
I enjoyed When Danger Bites even more than I thought I would (though I still think the title is silly.) I'm looking forward to more stories about Bravo Team, especially Silver who's my favorite so far. And without being too spoilery, we're going to need an update on Kat and Jax in the next book.
