•٠•● Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ●•٠• Review, Giveaway & Audio Tour For Alpha Squad, Boot Camp by Lorelei Moone •٠•● Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ●•٠•


by Lorelei Moone
Alpha Squad #1
Publication Date: December 23, 2016
Genres: Adult, Paranormal Romance, Bear Shifters



 It has only been a few months since humanity has found out 
about the shifters that live in their midst. When the New 
Alliance leadership asks Eric King to join Alpha Squad, a joint
 taskforce supposed to promote cooperation between the 
shifters and human authorities, his loyalty to the cause 
doesn’t give him any choice but to agree. But is the squad 
actually supposed to be relevant, or is it just an eyewash, set 
up by the new Secretary for Shifter Affairs to make himself 
look good? And how is he going to concentrate on his 
training, when his inner bear is insisting that the squad leader
 is his true mate?
Major Janine Williams is not at all pleased when she is 
ordered to set up Alpha Squad. The initiative is just a 
gimmick, meant to pacify the shifter community, plus none of
 her male colleagues had wanted the job. But when she 
starts getting to know her team, especially tough East 
London bear shifter, Eric, she starts to wonder if perhaps it 
will be possible to make this task force a success, so long as 
everyone works together. And so long as she can manage
 to keep her relationship with Eric strictly professional...

This review is for the book and the Audible

Wow if you think Lorelei Moone's books are great reads. You
are so going to love the Audible books even more. I think 
I have read all her books. But man this new series is great 
and the narrator for this was wonderful. Loved how she used
voice inflection to show depth was and how she gave each
character a voice. You could feel the conceding tone for
Captain Bentley the human spec ops guy, the tired sound to
Eric, or the excitement to his brother Adams voice. The steel
in Janine the tough as nails Major. And you could hear each
emotion the characters felt. Loved the Scottish accent added
for wolf shifter was amazing.

Now about the book.

Oh how I loved this new series by Lorelie Moone. I adored
her Scottish Werebear series and this one is even better.
This book is written so well that it flows nicely and seamlessly
from one page to the next. So much so I was at the end
before I knew it. I cannot wait to see what happens
with the alpha squad next.

This book is about Eric and Janine. She is the major in
charge of, well not wiping them into shape. She has orders
to make them fail. But she is determined to see them
succeeded. Even if doing so means disobeying orders and
could end her career. And Eric is the big burly bear shifter
that is assigned to her squad. Along with Eric he has his
brother, a wolf, and 2 humans. They have to learn how to
work together to make this work. And Eric is having a hard
time as he keeps hearing her thoughts. And he is hoping that
she can hear his, as for that may change everything. It is a
phenomenon that only occurs between mates. So if she can
hear him too? He would be so happy. But also as a leader in
his former job, could be a challenge to Janie.

Now before I ruin this for you I will leave off here. I hope you
enjoy this book as much as I did. If you do like this book,
please consider leaving a review. The Authors really like it
when you do; they value your opinions too.

"I'll be back shortly," she mumbled as she fumbled with the tent's opening and staggered out.
The sky was clear, which was unusual for this part of the world. Countless stars lit up the tent site and surrounding rocks and shrubbery. Janine would have to walk downhill a bit for cover.
She took a deep breath and wrapped her warm jacket around herself. It was only late September, but the nights were already chilly in these hills. With the help of the star and moon light, Janine found the most gradual path down into some larger shrubs about thirty or so feet away from the summit.
She did not waste time, and soon after started her climb back up. That was when it all went wrong. A loose rock escaped from underneath her foot and sent her sliding down the side of the hill. She let out a low whimper as her hip hit a sharp protrusion on the way, all the while flailing and reaching out for whatever vegetation she could find to stop her fall.
This seemed to go on forever, until finally, she stopped slipping. But it wasn't a small tree or shrub that had broken her momentum, it was a firm hand around her wrist.
Janine looked up and found a pair of familiar eyes staring down at her. Eric King.
How in the world had he come to her rescue so quickly? There had been no activity around the camp as far as Janine saw. Perhaps he had been out and about as well.
"Gotcha," he said. "Terrain's treacherous around these hills." He glanced up at the summit, which was a good hundred feet away now.
God, that voice. Janine did not say a word as he lifted her back onto her feet; she could not find the words. Of course, it was not just his voice, it was his whole being that had affected her so. After trying so hard to do the best job she could, no matter what the assignment, at this moment, she wanted nothing more than to throw it all away.
You're mine. The same low growl entered her mind. This was totally the wrong time for her overactive imagination to kick in.
Am I? Am I yours? she thought.
I knew that you were from the moment I first saw you.
Janine was frozen in place, communicating with whatever that voice was—a figment of her own imagination perhaps—when Eric's eyes began to glow in the dark. In this light, it should not have been possible to make out their color, but they had very clearly turned warm amber.
"How are you doing this?" she stammered.
"Wait, you can actually hear me?" he asked, looking about as shocked as she felt.
Janine opened her mouth to say something, then closed it again and frowned.
I don't understand. I have my orders. I have a job to do. Why are you in my head?
A smile broke through Eric's formerly serious expression. Because I am meant to be in your head. For whatever reason, we are meant to be in each other's lives.
Janine shook her head. That does not make any sense. And anyway, I never knew shifters could read minds.
We can't. Only when we find our true mate can we hear their thoughts, and they can hear ours.
That was too much. Janine freed her wrist from Eric's grasp and started to walk away, still shaking her head. She could not accept this.

"Thanks for saving me," she mumbled as she fought the pain resulting from her fall and marched back toward camp. "I need some time to think."
