Reid MacIntyre refuses to let the wolf within him call the shots. He has no intentions of falling prey to the beautiful and tempting woman with the amber eyes, even if his wolf insists she’s their mate. As a member of an elite, underground special ops team, he can’t afford any weakness, especially with a vicious enemy targeting shifters.
Alyx Laskarius is trying to stay one step ahead of the man who wants her for all the wrong reasons. To protect herself, her family, and her secrets, she can’t trust anyone -- especially not the dark and sexy mysterious neighbor who seems to have quite a few secrets of his own.
Alyx may think she’s safe hiding out at Gram’s house in the country but the trouble that’s been dogging her heels is catching up quick. Reid realizes he and Alyx have a common enemy and his wolf won’t let either rest until they take him down. But can they defeat their enemy without losing their hearts along the way?
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
At this point, it’s no secret that I love wolf shifter stories. The whole mate thing, the protectiveness, the alphaness of the guys, how touchy the wolves are… it just hits all the right spots for me.
“She really likes you,” Dylan confided, making me wonder if Alyx ever mentioned me.
“Oh yeah,” Dylan whispered. “She looks at you like I look at an ice cream sundae.”
In Going Nowhere, Reid is not only a shifter but a member of an elite, underground special ops team heretofore known as BAMF. Reid, AKA Reaper, has no time for romance or a desire to gain a weakness. His line of work does not really come with a retirement.
Alyx has been running from a mistake for some time now, and she’d hoped that trouble wouldn’t find her at her grandmother’s house. She finds an altogether different kind of trouble when she piques the interest of her grandma’s mysterious and hot neighbor.
With Reid’s wolf recognizing Alyx as his mate, there’s not much chance of them fighting their attraction and crazy hot chemistry… but Reid is not the only one with a secret, and soon Alyx’s past problems find her again. Lucky for her, she now has one reluctantly overprotective wolf at her back…
I loved both main characters: Reid was one stoic, focused alpha male. Surprisingly caring and sweet towards his old lady neighbor, he didn’t believe his line of work could really allow a relationship. He also wasn’t too keen on letting his inner wolf call all the shots, and I found this interesting. Obviously, in the end, both his man and wolf parts were totally in agreement about Alyx.
Alyx was one kickass chick. Having grown up in a family with a history of keeping secrets, she was tough and took no shit from anyone. She had also an incredibly tender heart that showed in her work as a pediatric nurse for oncology patients, she also had the smarts to match and a backbone which altogether made her pretty spectacular.
One small complaint would be that the ending was almost too easy. The bad guy gets caught seemingly without a hitch and although it felt like the story arc will continue, I’m not sure how they’re going to manage it.
Going Nowhere is steamy, hot and full of action. I was totally hooked on the story, Alyx’s family history, and Reid’s team members. There’s a lot of goodness to come from this first installment and I really can’t wait to see what comes next.
