Rating: 5 of 5 Stars


After rescuing Markus and Brian from the clutches of the sadistic Councilwoman, Shanna Crystal, the Mad Dogs are forced on R & R. None of them are happy and none of them want or need ‘rest & relaxation’ but they have no choice.

The campground, Dad T’s, is a gay soldier’s wet dream for R & R but the Dogs barely have a chance to enjoy all it offers when everything they know about the supernaturals that inhabit the world is turned upside-down.

A leisurely run in the Ocala National Forest turns their R & R into a mission. A missing that almost takes out the Delta Unit. Permanently.


This is definitely the best book of the series so far!

To catch up and prepare I re-read the first three books before sitting back to enjoy this one. If you are new to the series start at book 1, you need to start at the beginning.

As a recap the Mad Dogs are an elite Delta force who are wolf shifters. To become a Mad Dog is a scary and risky business as Brian discovered in the first book. They are the best of the best when it comes to dealing with the worlds paranormal problems, they are also a highly sexual group with the wolves needing either sex or blood to keep them sated which makes for a great group dynamic!

When they return from their rescue mission after Brian and Markus were kidnapped and tortured by a member of the council the Dogs are told to take some time out and enjoy their R & R. For most people a trip to Florida would be a gift but the Dogs aren’t happy about it and would much rather head off the find Shanna, the rogue council woman, and end her time on earth. By the time they arrive at their Florida destination, Dad T’s their alpha has smoke coming out of his ears and the pack are stressed. The eye candy at the all gay resort goes some way to melting their stress!

The Dogs seem to be the kind of group that can’t go anywhere without trouble following them and after only a couple of days their world as they know it turns upside down. The least of their problems is that Shanna’s latest kidnap attempt is partially successful before they are introduced to things they didn’t know existed and for an elite group of warrior werewolves that deal with the paranormal world that says a lot!

Brenda has also merged her characters from the Shadows series to come and help out as Doc and another wolf need rescuing. There are huge changes afoot for Markus and Brian and lots of unanswered questions at the end as well as a jobless watcher. This is an exciting read in a great series and my only hope is that book 5 isn’t too far away as I need answers!
