The Alpha Pack is a top secret team of wolf shifters with supernatural - psy - powers, founded by a group of former Navy Seals. One member, Jaxon Law, who became a shifter following the betrayal of a woman he trusted, leaves him crippled, half his team decimated, and overwhelmed with anger and guilt over his part in it.
Kira Locke, who is on the run from her former employer at NewLife Technology, has information that might confirm her suspicions that the company may be up to no good. For this, thugs have been sent to stop her from leaking the information. But when Jaxon arrives to rescue her, neither are prepared for the sudden awakening of Jaxon’s primal instincts.
Because Kira has witnessed her rescuer’s shifting ability, Jaxon has no choice but to remove her to the Alpha compound where are housed many other shifters as well as strange beings of supernatural ability, some of which are a threat to the normal human population.
When Kira is made aware of her own psy ability, she more readily fits in with the Pack and uses it to assist some of the strange beings she encounters there. And as her attraction for Jaxon grows into a more intimate relationship, both battle conflicting emotions as they consider what fate has in store for them.
When Kira and Jaxon delay the inevitable, they soon realize how dangerous it is for Jaxon to avoid taking Kira as his own. Once realized, both soon learn they may have to risk everything, even loyalty to the Pack, in order to survive the dangers awaiting them at NewLife.
PRIMAL LAW by J. D. Tyler is an exciting, spicy story that is sure to keep readers riveted to their seats. Full of all aspects of the paranormal, conflict, incredibly hot love scenes, and a bevy of interesting, unusual characters, it is a tale wrought with a great plot and interesting happenings.
The Alpha Pack cannot possibly get any hotter and sexier than what Tyler has given her readers. No lacking in that department, that’s for sure. The fact that Jaxon has a physical disability only adds to this intriguing and suspenseful tale.
The fact that Jaxon is instantly smitten with Kira opens the door for the rest of PRIMAL LAW.
Jaxon is a hunk, whether as a wolf or a human. And Kira is beautiful, sweet, and sexy in her own right. It is fun to follow the two on their journey as both ignore the fact that they are actually meant to be together, as life mates. Intuitively, they both know it, yet both refuse to admit to their true feelings for one another. Although the primal urges are there in full force, the reader must go along for the ride until the inevitable moment arrives, when they finally accept what is meant to be between them.
I really loved the interesting characters in PRIMAL LAW. Especially the beautiful Fae prince, Sariel, and the sorcerer, Kalen, as secondaries. Each added their own unique twist to this book. Ms. Tyler did well in making them unique in their abilities and looks. They stood on their own as interesting characters who could well have a book written about them as individuals. I would enjoy reading about their separate lives were that to happen. And I really loved Chup. Such an adorable little creature.
There is certainly everything in this paranormal to liven things up and draw the readers in. PRIMAL LAW has a bit of everything to satisfy. Wolf shifters, necromancer/sorcerers, fantasy, paranormal romance, time-bending, genetic experiments, government conspiracies, to name a few intriguing aspects for those who enjoy this genre.
PRIMAL LAW is fast-paced and quickly able to sweep the reader off to a world of urban fantasy that is sure to titillate the senses and evoke a fascination of things that only one’s imagination can provide.
Since PRIMAL LAW is the first in the Alpha Pack series, I eagerly await the next since this one is a definite cliff-hanger. I can’t wait to see how Alpha Pack rescues one of their own from the evil clutches of NewLife Technology.
PRIMAL LAW is a great, over-spicy, action-packed, exciting book, so if it’s what you are looking for, this is the one to get hold of. But hang on tight because you’re in for a great ride.
