They're tight
They're on target
They're as alpha as men can get.

The Dallas SWAT team is hiding one helluva secret . . . they're a pack of wolf shifters.

The team of elite sharpshooters is ultra-secretive—and also the darlings of Dallas. This doesn't sit well with investigative journalist Mackenzie Stone. They must be hiding something . . . and she's determined to find out what.

Keeping Mac at a distance proves impossible for SWAT team commander Gage Dixon. She's smart, sexy, and makes him feel alive for the first time in years. But she's getting dangerously close to the truth—and perilously close to his heart...
The Dallas SWAT team is really something special.  They aren't just werewolves - because that just isn't special enough anymore.  They are all APLHA werewolves!  Can you imagine trying to keep all that testosterone in line???  Paige Tyler did it very well.  Our first leading man, Gage, is the apha-est of aphas, but even he can't always keep them from arguing.  I loved the team interactions.  It was just so believable - you know, if werewolves actually existed this was totally be how they worked together.

Mac is out to get a story - and she is stubborn enough to do whatever it takes to get it (outside of lying - she's actually a good journalist that way).  I really fell in love with her "freak out" moment.  This is the moment she realizes that werewolves exist and she just might be crushing hard core on one.  The freak out moment can really make or break a story for me.  So totally unbelievable if the girl is like "wow cool - werewolves".  Hell no!  There should be some serious shock factor - and I was very happy with this books "freak out" moment.

The story is a great mix of romance and suspense as well.  I love a good suspense story and this one really delivers.  When the SWAT team is targeted by a determined bad guy, Mac's life is on the line.  Mac isn't one to sit still and wait to be rescued though.  She takes things into her own hands and tries to fix things herself - I love a self-sufficient woman.  Overall, this was a very exciting read on several different levels.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
