A Stella Review: Nemesis (Alpha Unit One #2) by Chris T. Kat

RATING 4,5 out of 5 stars

Nicky Reed may have won the battle regarding baby shifters working as policemen, but he’s not so sure about the war. His mate and superior officer, Sam Black, is still overprotective with a capital O. As a result, Nicky sometimes finds himself repressing some of Tiny’s—his snow leopard cub other half’s—natural urges. Which leads to frustration on Nicky’s part.

With a new drug called Nemesis killing in record numbers, Alpha Unit One must find out who’s behind this horrible narcotic and get it off the streets—a tall enough order without press accusations that baby shifters are to blame for the team’s lack of success.

Their investigation into Nemesis leads Nicky and Sam and the rest of the team into unexpected waters. Will the stress rip the squad apart? The baby shifters may find themselves unable to perform the job they love: protecting the people of New York City. And Nicky may be in over his head—in more ways than one.

I can’t explain how happy I was when I saw this new release out. I wasn’t waiting for a new installment in the Alpha Unit One series and I was over the moon. I’m a big fan of the author, I often come back to her titles when I seek comfort in my readings. This series is no exception.

This time Nicky and Sam and their whole team are busy trying to catch who is behind a new drug that’s killing people on the streets and they will have to face some dangerous moments. While they are investigating, I was able to follow my adorable couple around and I discovered they are still deep in love: Sam is still too overprotective of his mate, sure he’s making progresses, he’s trying really hard to treat Nicky as one of his teammates, but it’s not easy to ignore their connection. And then there’s Nicky, who is fighting to gain the respect he deserves although some people seems to be too stupid to see beyond his baby shifter.

As in the first book, Nemesis was another great success to me, quick and easy to read, the focus remains on the main couple, but there are some amazing second characters too, I truly hope the author will write their own stories in the future. Alpha Unit One is a light paranormal series, not once shallow, but full of action, friendship and loyalty. Plus be ready for a lot of cuteness, Nicky as a snow leopard cub is hard to resist.

The cover art by Cate Ashwood is well done, I like everything this artist designs, I can easily see Sam in the model on this cover.

Series Alpha Unit One #2

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
