Loved Primal Law and this one was even better! It was fast paced, sexy, and full of action! Aric is a hero who's hard to handle, but Rowan did a fine job of bringing out his big, soft heart. Now bring on Kalen Black's book in December! Can't wait for the mysterious sorcerer/panther shifter.

CAPTIVATING 2ND INSTALLMENT TO THE SERIES
Our Review [by LITERAL ADDICTION’s Pack Alpha - Michelle L Olson]:
I thoroughly enjoyed Primal Law and was incredibly excited for the release of Savage Awakening. The day it arrived on my Kindle I settled in for the ride…
Save Awakening picks up where Primal Law left off, with Aric Savage kidnapped and held hostage by Orson Chappell and the NewLife mad scientists along with another missing team member, Micah Chase, who disappeared and was originally presumed dead six months earlier.
Micah’s sister Rowan, an officer with the LAPD, continues to search for her brother believing in her heart that if he were dead, she’d know. When she gets a tip about a hidden facility in the Shoshone that may lead to news of her brother she heads out for answers. What she encounters is more than she ever bargained for, however.
Thrown into a whole new world full of things she only thought were nightmares, but knowing that seeing is believing, Rowan joins the Alpha Pack to find and rescue not only her brother but their missing Pack brother, Aric.
When a lead finally pans out and they rescue Aric and Micah, the true adventures begin…
Aric is damaged in Savage Awakening. Not only physically, but mentally as well - torn between hating Jaxon for his part in his ultimate kidnapping and torture and his own actions prior to that which led to the Event and the traumatic experiences beforehand. The snarky red wolf that we came to know and love in Primal Law is back, though he’s continually finding himself hiding behind his snark as a coping mechanism, and when yet another twist is thrown into his mix in the form of a mate he never thought he’d meet, he almost takes the easy way out. Arik has a huge heart and high insecurities and they get him into major trouble. He makes poor decisions thinking that it’s the best for everyone, when in reality; it’s not good for anyone.
Rowan is Aric’s perfect counterpart. She’s tough and witty like he is, but she also has a huge heart and puts everyone before herself; even when it puts her own hide in danger.
Aric and Rowan’s story is somewhat predictable, following very closely the exact path that Jax took with Kira in Primal Law, but it’s still very enjoyable and the rest of the story in Savage Awakening is gripping.
Kalen’s story unfolds further, as it’s revealed who the ‘Big Bad’ is that is after him. We learn more about the mysterious Hammer, a secret is revealed about A.J, and Nick is yet again tortured by his prescient visions and his inability to interfere with fate.
Sariel plays a large part in Savage Awakening as well and while I already loved him in Primal Law, I adore him now and cannot wait to find out more about him and have him get more and more involved with the Alpha Pack and their mates.
LITERAL ADDICTION gives this book 4 Skulls and would recommend it to everyone who loved Primal Law and Black Magic, as well as Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy, Magick and Shifter lovers far and wide.
Savage Awakening isn’t as fast paced, action packed and chock-full of ‘stuff’ as Primal Law was, but it’s a captivating and enjoyable read and a nice addition to the series.
Bring on Kalen’s book J.D! After the ending of Savage Awakening and the events that took place in Black Magic, I CANNOT wait to find out how you deal with all of the drama. I am beyond excited! :)

This was an intense book, because of all the feeling that are bedded into it. Sometimes it just took so much out of you that you have to put the book down and breath. I'm glad Aric got his happy ending, but I still absolutely hate Jax, I can fully accept that I probably never will like him.
Micah, poor Micah, I can't wait to read more about him and his recovery.

When I first heard of J.D. Tyler I didn't know anything about her so I decided to read the first Alpha pack book and I've been hooked ever since. They're full of action, suspense, and yes romance. You will fall in love with the guy and gals of Alpha pack as soon as you read the first page. I recently finished reading book 3 of this series and can't wait for the next one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I enjoyed this book. Rowan and Aric. I like her as an author. I felt as though I had a relationship with the characters that she created. I won't give the plot away, but this is a nice series. Some have said that they want Hammer to find his mate...but I want Nick (the head man in charge) to find his mate. That would be an interesting story.Was this review helpful?

Just okay . . . .
The plot of this series is good, but the love story was the same just different characters. Hopefully that will change as the series continues.

Last week, I determined that I was going to read one of the many, many books that I've bought and are languishing in my huge TBR pile. (I've pretty much spent all my reading time the last couple of months on review books.) This was the one that I chose....and it was the PERFECT choice. I haven't read any of the other books in this series. This is #2 and there is the first book and a novella that come before this, but I decided I wasn't going to let that put me off (although I swear I have book #1 somewhere around here!)
This book was so good!!! Sexy shifter soldiers...yeah, you know I'm right there and this is a fantastic group of them!! The book starts with Aric being tortured and right then I was hooked because you know this is going to be a good angsty hero and I do love those! Aric was captured when a mission went wrong and now he's being tortured at the hands of his step-sister. While in captivity though, he discovers that one of the Alpha pack, Micah, isn't dead....although he's really close.
The heroine in this book is super-tough LA cop, Rowan. She's been given a tip about her presumed dead brother Micah and ends up at the Alpha pack compound to investigate. Before this, she had no idea about shifters or other paranormal creatures or that her brother was one. She just knows that she's been told that he's dead and it's something that mentally she can't accept. She "knows" he's still alive.
I loved everything about this book. The whole Alpha team is amazing....from their leader Nick to the super-sexy sorcerer Kalen (he's the hero in book #3 and I cannot wait!!!) I like that J.D. puts a new twist on Bondmates. In this world, if the shifters don't claim their mate, then they die. Serious stuff here and it makes it so incredibly sexy. Micah is going to have an incredible story too after being in captivity for 6 months. He's horribly scarred both inside and out and he's going to have a long road to recovery.
Overall, I'm sold on this series. Now I need to go grab books #1 and #1.5 and catch up on what I've missed before this one! I highly recommend this series if this book is any indication about how good the whole series is. BTW, if you don't know....J.D. Tyler is the pseudonym for Jo Davis, the author of the incredible Firefighters of Station 5 series.
