Routine training for the Mad Dogs turns out to be anything but routine for Brian Hay. Finally bonded to the rest of the pack, there is only one last step to make him an official Mad Dog: meet the Council representatives.

What should have been standard operating procedure between the Mad Dogs and the Council turns into a mission like none other they had been sent on before…

This review is primarily for Extraction, the third book in the series but will cover all of them. I'll start out by writing that I really enjoyed these books, a lot more than I expected. I never read paranormal/shape shifter books. Ever. I didn't realize that these books were in that genre or I probably wouldn't have read them. I enjoy reading military m/m stories and the whole hazing/initiation angle piqued my interest and tickled my kinks. That being said, I got sucked into the story before I ...more

There is trouble and a little deceit in the air as we meet up with the Mad Dog team again. It would seem that Markus being able to take on a third form, the first Mad Dog to do this in over 100 years, has caused a stir within the company and not everyone is to be trusted.

After what is supposed to b a regular debrief and a meeting with the council members following their last mission it becomes quickly apparent that there is some
I love this series. It has been a while since I read the first two books. I wasn't sure if I would be able to jump back in, but I really didn't have a problem. The only thing that tripped me up a bit was the squad's nicknames. It took me a few pages to figure out who was who again. I hadn't forgotten the storyline up to this point though.

This book split the Mad Dogs up a bit. You have two captured and the others trying to find them. You also find out a bit more about the commander and the counci

Ok so this addition get a little better. The plot is a bit stronger. We get a little more of a story and learn some more about the characters. It’s still a bit hard to connect to it but it’s at least heading in the right direction.

4.5 star review by Dan

The team is back from Switzerland and recovering from their ordeal by doing some training in the woods of North Carolina. At a remote location, Brian and the rest of the guys are doing some intense training. Too intense for a normal human. Because Brian is still “converting” as it were, he is more exhausted than the rest of the team.

Now it is time for him to meet the representatives of the council. One, Rolex, is a former Mad Dog, and of course still a werewolf, the other i

I would like to first thank the author for allow me to be a beta reader for this book. I absolutely love the Mad Dogs series.

Here is what I felt about the book.

Characters: 4
As each book progresses we learn more about the Mad Dogs and how they function, not only as a unit, but as individuals and as couples. Watching the layers around Brian being peeled aways as more of his personality, emotions and beliefs emerge has been a rewarding experience so far and one I want to continue to enjoy througho

I can say that this book kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next! It seemed like the pages couldn’t turn quick enough on my kindle because I just had to find out what was going to happen.

After already being invested in this series, the fact that Markus and Brian are taken, it destroyed me and I was almost in tears while reading — hoping that the other Mad Dogs could get to them and save them.

This is a true series and so it must be read in order, but it is totally w

I knew better than to read the summary for the books in this series but i was so excited to read the 3rd book that I read the summary anyways and talk about a mood killer, I mean one moment I'm so freaking excited to read this book then I read the summary and suddenly all my excitedness is gone and I have to keep reminding myself how I know I'll really like this book so I need to read this book despite the horrible summary. And I was so right I LOVED this book, I swear each book I read in this s ...more

Character development is huge for me in books. And Brenda gives us that in spades. I love learning more about the Mad Dogs as this series progresses. Individually and as a unit, you will love all these boys!

Extraction is my favorite of the series so far!
I have read the 1st three books in this series twice now. I am beyond excited for book 4 to be released. I just can't get enough!

If you are a fan of Paranormal, M/M werewolf shifter books, you really need to check this series out. You won't be di

I really enjoyed this book and the character development. The sex was just enough to keep it hot and steamy and the action played out like an awesome movie. I have read Ms. Cothern's books before and like the ones I've read in the past, this book leaves you looking forward to the next one. If you still have any doubts about reading this book, I leave you with this final thought... this is a book about gay werewolves in special forces that are eager to fight and have raw animal sex.

As a fan of not just the Mad Dog series, but also Brenda Cothern's books, I love this story. We meet some members of the Council, get more of my favorite non-Mad Dog Duke, and find them on another adventure. However, the difference is they need to rescue some of their own. Follow all of the Mad Dogs on their latest adventure, and fall in love with them more.

Extraction #3

This series keeps getting better and better with each book. M and B got kidnapped by a council member and she found out some information by watching them but the team with the help of the watcher found them and they were rescued. I can not wait for the next book in this series. Erin

Great story

This book continued a great series. Once again, I was impressed with the world of the Mad Dogs. The editing was better in this book than the previous two. I'm looking forward to reading the next book.

Suspense, intrigue and double cross make wonderful ingredients for a story. Shana, where are you?! There has to be a fourth book because she cannot get away.
