Caught in the middle of a hostage situation, social worker Samantha Gray faces death to help a family in need. When she calls for help, the SWAT Commander and his team of four gorgeous men come to her rescue. These five handsome faces, sexy bodies, and take-charge personalities send her body into sexual turmoil, but she has to resist. She fell in love once and caused her lover's death. She can't give in to temptation this time, no matter how desirable the brothers. The Valdamar brothers are a pack of Alphas hired by the government to keep the peace. They discover their mate, but she refuses to reciprocate their advances. As trouble continues to find her, they lose their patience and decide to take what is theirs and shield her from further harm in the one place she resists-their arms. Note: This book contains physical abuse of the heroine by the villain.At first I was a little apprehensive about one woman and whole SWAT team because most stories I’ve encountered with more than one woman and two men seem to have lots of sex and not much story. Not the case with this one. Ms. Dwyer does an excellent job of providing a truly interesting storyline outside of the bedroom. Don’t get me wrong, the sex was smokin’ and abundant, but the characters had more going on than just sex.
Ms. Dwyer does a great job of letting the reader get to know these five men’s personalities. As a reader, I didn’t feel like I got to know one brother better than the other. Although Sam did spend alone time with one brother over the others, I didn’t feel as though they were being excluded or left out.
SWAT Team One and the Social Worker had a lot of action and plot twists that I wasn’t expecting from an erotic novel, but was pleasantly surprised with. This is my first book by Ms. Dwyer, but it definitely won’t be my last.
