Werewolf Harley Grant isn’t exactly comfortable with her inner wolf. Even though she’s on a STAT team where she can use her abilities openly, she refuses to do so, putting herself—and sometimes her teammates—at risk.
Alpha werewolf Sawyer Bishop would give anything for his MI6 team to know about his inner wolf, but his teammates are mistrustful of anyone or anything with inhuman abilities. When he meets Harley on an overlapping case and realizes she’s a fellow wolf, he’s more than a little intrigued.
Now that STAT and MI6 have to team up to stop a crew of supernatural bad guys intent on causing a nuclear meltdown, Harley can no longer deny her wolf and Sawyer can no longer hide his. As they grow closer to resolving the case and grow closer to each other, they discover things aren’t what they seem and revenge could cost them their lives.

Genre: Paranormal Romantic Suspense

My Rating: 4.5 stars
Undercover Wolf is the second title in the STAT: Special Threat Assessment Team series (which is a spin-off from SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team). I’m enjoying this spin-off with new characters to get to know and intense situations to be dealt with. The characters are diverse, once again, and if possible, it feels as though the crimes are just a bit more gritty, more heinous but then the world is often a cruel place with people/creatures who have no problem lowering themselves to absolute vileness.
Hailey is keeping her wolf away from her team and even herself. She has her reasons, are they good ones? Only time will tell. Sawyer is comfortable with his wolf, but his teammates in M16 are definitely not for they do not know about his other life. Sawyer turned several years ago, yet those he works with have a very suspicious attitude toward any supernatural believing that it’s impossible for them to be anything but evil. When the STAT’s case crossed into M16’s area these two werewolves will work side by side, and for Sawyer, with the type of freedom, he’s only dreamed about. Neither are aware that they are The One for each other. Sure, there’s attraction, a draw, but neither is putting the clues together just yet.
The supernaturals the teams are after are vile beyond words as they are trafficking in human/supernatural lives, kidnapping, and so much more. Finding those in danger, freeing them while taking down the network is intense and dangerous. No one will come out of this unaffected. Watching Hailey and Sawyer work together, oftentimes fighting their attraction was an adventure that I enjoyed so much. Sometimes smart people cannot see what’s right in front of them without a bit of help.
If you love a good Paranormal Romantic Suspense then Undercover Wolf should be on your reading radar. Because this is such an ensemble series with the entire team involved in many ways and an overarching theme I really suggest trying to read this series in order if at all possible. Do you have to? Of course not. But I do think you’ll get more of a feel for the characters and perhaps pick up some small tidbits of information along the way that may help understand a character later in the series. I had a blast back in this world and would definitely recommend this title.
