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.

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…

NA Review My Thoughts

When Danger Bites by Heather Long is the first book in the Bravo Team WOLF series. I enjoyed this book. It has been awhile since I have read an adult paranormal romance, and I forgot how much I enjoy them. When Danger Bites was a good start to the series, but it kind of felt like there was a lot of build up, and a lot of working up to the romance in this one. Overall, I liked the story, but I felt like the romance moved a little bit too slow for my liking.

When Danger Bites is the story of Kat and Jax. I really, really loved Kat and Jax. I was rooting for them pretty much from the beginning, which is why I think I wanted them to get together a little faster. Because it was so clear to me they are dynamite together. Kat is sent in to join a special ops team and to figure out what is going on with them, and Jax is supposed to get her to go away. The plot of When Danger Bites was my favorite part of the story. It all worked really well for me. I enjoyed the writing, and Heather Long kept making me want to come back for more. The whole shifter element was like a nice little bonus. And the bonus got a little bigger when you combine with the shifters the fact that they are shifters that work for the government as a military team. What? I loved that idea!

Heather Long is an excellent story teller. She works in details in a very subtle way. I loved all the layers she included in the story. The writing and the plot and characters were all so strong that half way through, I was expecting this to be a 5 star read for me. I loved Kat and Jax so much that I kept waiting and waiting and waiting for something to happen. If the romance got going a little stronger a littler earlier I think I would have enjoyed the book even more than I already did. But honestly, that is my only negative about the story. Everything else about When Danger Bites was excellent. I loved the plot and I love the set up for this series. I will definitely be coming back for more!
