RATING 5 out of 5 stars
In a world that accepts shifters as normal and thinks nothing of human/shifter couples, baby shifters and small shifters are treated as subpar. They are not allowed into the more dangerous professions, and their mates have legal control over what they can and cannot do.
Nicholas Reed is about to challenge the established rules. At twenty-eight, Nick has just been accepted into New York’s Alpha Unit One—an elite law enforcement team, composed equally of humans and shifters, that specializes in drug crimes. It is Nick’s dream job. But if they find out what he’s hiding, his career could be destroyed.
Enter a huge complication in the form of Sam Black, an older lion shifter who is the leader of the unit… and Nick’s mate. Nick wants Sam, and he wants to keep his job, but he can’t have them both. He also can’t choose between them.
I can confess I was over the moon when I saw Chris T. Kat had a new book coming out soon, I’m a huge fan of her works and was very sad when she decided to take some time off from writing. This new release was a fabulous surprise.
I read Alpha Unit One, New York in one night, I devoured it, I fell into the novellas from the start. The writing was so good, I was caught into the plot and couldn’t put down the kindle for a minute. Nothing new to me, this has happened every time I read this author books.
I adored Nick and Sam story, I soon felt the connection between them, the chemistry was so clear and strong it was unevitable for them to act on it, even if it seemed some circustances were agaist their union. But they are mates and this can’t be fought. Altough I liked them both, I particularly cared for Nick, he was cute and funny, his worries about being where he actually couldn’t be, made me cringe and sometimes laugh too. I liked how he easily found new friends among his new colleagues, some of them had more than one secret in common.
This is the kind of paranormal books I love to read, I am a sucker for the destined mates thrope, but I need something more too and here the author developed a new world that it felt me very realistic. Plus a solid plot with interesting second characters and couples I would so hope to have their stories in the next future; there is action, and then sex, sweetnesses, friendships.
I simply loved Alpha Unit One, New York and I already reread it, so of course I feel to recommend it.
The cover art by Cate Ashwood is lovely, well done and fitting in every detail.
