This review is from: Alpha Squad: Boot Camp: A Steamy Bear Shifter Paranormal Romance (Kindle Edition)

Great new shifter series for me!

Eric and Janine find love in the strangest of places! A Major and a recruit in Alpha Squad boot camp can't fight fate! I loved it! I voluntarily offer this review of my free copy of Alpha Squad: Boot Camp.
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
The secret has hit the world in a wave of panic and fear. The response form a task force aimed at controlling the fear and panic of humans, keeping the peace, and punishing those that can’t or won’t quite follow the rules. I loved getting a glimpse at some of the previous series couples/characters. I love that things continued to the next step with more love and more mating and more adventure.

Work Place Romance?

This story centers around the female lead, Janine, and the male lead Eric, as the overcome obstacles in their personal lives.

The shifters recently ousted themselves to the humans and there is a bit of "resistance".

Throw in a bit of action and romance and the book turned out to be an interesting read.

The narrator, Audrey Lusk, did well with the narration.

Entertaining, fun and enjoyable short shifter military story. This is an spin off of her other series, Scottish Werebear. You don't have to have read that series to enjoy this series. The story flowed smoothly and never felt choppy. This was just a quick entertaining listen with a little steamy romance and a HEA.

The synopsis gives a pretty detailed outline of the story.

The characters were okay. Being a shorter story there isn't much time to really develop the characters. Eric was a good characte

As a first-time reader of Ms. Moone’s shifters, I felt like I needed more depth into the instant -love that happened between shifters or shifter/human. The story was a little predictable but it was a good read. I listened to the whole collection from Eric and Janine to Sean and Erin. The story followed a timeline and continued to give us a full story. I loved all the shifter men. They were strong, capa

I love a good shifter romance, and I love a quick read – this book was both. I was able to finish this in about a day and I enjoyed every minute of it; I just wish there was more to it. Every author has a different way of writing shifter romances, so I’m never sure how I will like it. This was my first read by this author and I was impressed, with her shifter styling and her writing. She grabbed my interest within the first few pages and kept it throughout the entire book.

I really like Eric and Adam, Blackwood is almost too happy for my liking, never having an off moment through the first part of the book. I'm not sure what to make of Bentley and I'm wondering why Cooper has been selected for this particular group. Bentley I can see. Blackwood and the King brothers I can see. I really like Janine. She's fun. Her assistant Callahan is a blast. Especially when Janine realizes Callahan is on her side. I love the phases of training the men go through and what Janine ...more

I had the privilege to listen to this series on audible Narrated by Audrey Lusk and I have to say that I loved it! I loved how Audrey told this story, her voice was so melodic it had me in a trance. This series started off with a big bang! I love a shifter story but this one was excellent and I can't say enough about this story. I do not want to give it away but I will give you a simple review for you to get the jist of the story.

This was my first book by this author, and I was immediately hooked on her writing style. I love bear-shifter stories, and this one quickly became one of my favorites. Eric and Janine have chemistry in spades, and their instant "true mate" connection was beautifully written. It's a tough assignment to have a strong male character retain his alpha leadership status when his mate not only outranks him but is his boss, but Ms. Moone pulls it off effortlessly. Eric is downright swoon-worthy, and his ...more

I received a free copy from the author via; this is my honest review.
I loved the way Janine and Eric met the first time, then the second time around. How unexpected for them!
I loved the sex scene; it wasn't erotica or steamy but it felt like a cozy "finally, I have you naked and in my bed".
I loved the way Janine had to go through and decide between ethics from her conscience and orders from above.
I loved the way Eric took care of his brother during the whole time they were on base.

Shortish shifters book"
This story is really good, but the characters could have used some more development.
I'd also would have expected to see more shifting going on, there is some going on but mostly it's just mentioned.
The narration is good but she doesn't get the male characters voices very well.
This audiobook was given to me for free at my request from the publisher or author or narrator and I provided this voluntary review.

I loved this mix of military and shifters. Janine may be female, but her ranking in the military and attitude during training show that she is a woman who's fiercely independent and in no way does she need Eric to swoop in and be her man. I loved that even though Eric has found his mate he doesn't just come in and take over he actually follows Janine's lead. This was a really great story and Audrey's accent and wonderful narration helped set the story perfectly. ...more

I really enjoyed reading this book!! The connection that Eric and Janine had was unmistakable and very sweet!! I also liked the premise of the Alpha Squad and how it all came together. I really look forward to the next book in this series which will be out early in 2017. I definitely recommend this book which is interesting and funny with a touch of hotness!! Enjoy!!!

This was a great start to a new series! Eric and Janine were both really likeable and had good chemistry. We also met other members of the squad and enjoyed these shifters and humans learning to work together. Secondary characters interacted well with the story leaving us wanting to know more. Adam, Eric's brother was one member we look forward to reading about. ...more

Awesome intro to a series, that is set as a spin-off from the Scottish Were-Bear Series. In my opinion, this book would be better understood by reading the Scottish Were-Bear Series. That being said, this book was a fantastic read by itself. Looking forward to the next book!!

Interesting plot.
Eric is a real sweetheart from the get go and Janine is military to her boots.
I liked the ide of a ragtag group of shifters and humans coming together and becoming a team even though they are against the odds.
I'm looking forward to reading the next story.

What a great start to a new series! Shifters have recently "come out" to the public and a joint shifter/human agency called Alpha Squad has been formed. The mis-matched group of recruits have to learn to work together in increasingly more difficult training exercises. The main characters- Eric and Janine - feel a strong attraction but fight it as she is his commanding officer. There are hidden agendas and conflicts that keep the pages turning.
I voluntarily read and reviewed a copy of this book.

a very nice read, interesting as the romance begins and proceeds. In of all cases an unwanted boot camp where shifters and humans interact and become a team not to be messed with.

Love the book

This book is insightful to those just getting into the Shaffer community. It'll point out some interesting contrasts and knowledge.

A Little different. This is all about putting shifters and non-shifters together as a team.
Starting when shifters are just "coming out" to the world.
I would give other books in the series a chance, just to see how it turns out.

Another great start to a fascinating series. This is an awesome foundation base to what's sure to be a great series. The spin off from the ending of Lorelei's Scottish Werebears series is amazing. I'm excited to have more stories of her bear Shifters to read, and can't wait for more in 2017!
Eric didn't volunteer but did as he was asked when the leader of The New Alliance asked him to join the taskforce Alpha Squad- a joint effort between shifters and humans to supposedly to bridge t

I have been getting more and more into shifter books. So I was excited to read this one. It was definitely interesting, and different.

Janine, also the Major, is called in to lead a special task unit called the Alpha Squad. A few months prior, shifters had come out to the world, so this unit was to help work along side any agencies, especially law enforcement, when it came to any kind of shifter affairs. The orders for this unit to be put together was direct

I read this book as an ARC for 2 girls who love books blog. Alpha Squad was a really quick read and I wondered as I neared the end, how it would wrap up so quickly.

I've not read any other the previous back story of the shifters and humans or the New Alliance but could get the jist of it as I read this book.

This is a great spinoff of Lorelei Moon's "Scottish Werebear" series. Alpha Squad is formed after shifters reveal themselves to the world. Their purpose is to build a joint taskforce between shifters and human authorities and learn how to police and protect each other, but some higher ups don't want it to succeed.

Eric King has been asked to be an advocate for his group. Janine Williams has been given an assignment that goes against the grain. It’s a story that brings up thoughts of segregation and bigotry. Just because this piece is fictional doesn’t mean that you can’t feel sorry for the characters that the author has created. That just means that the author has done a great job in getting the reader involved.

We have two characters that can’t ignore the pull of what some might consider

Alpha Squad is a bit different than any of the books I'm used to reading from Lorelei Moone.

Shifters have been revealed to humans now. Like with anything new to humans, there are some who are weary of shifters.

Major Janine Williams is tasked with training the first ever Alpha Squad. This department will deal with shifter and human affairs. She's always been able to keep everyone at a professional level. But there's something about o
