I liked how it showed how it showed how being in the service can be. liked how Kat had integrity and respected the rules of service life even though it can end a relationship with the man she loved. All and all a very good story I enjoyed. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.

4.5 Stars. Ms. Long has combined the best of my favorite genres into one astounding book and I can't get enough! Wolf shifters and military special operators, all the action and suspense, really kickass characters, a very exciting plot, what more could a girl ask for? Captain Jax Raymond's Bravo Team WOLF is the best of the best, with good reason. It's completely made up of wolf shifters and their military skill complements their paranormal abilities. Their assignments are classified at the highest levels and very few people know their secret, but their success rate and low number of casualties have been noticed. Enter intelligence analyst, Corporal Kaitlyn Amador. The first female Marine try out to join the team, she has orders to infiltrate the team and uncover the secrets behind the team's extraordinary success. As distasteful as her assignment is, Kat is a Marine through and through and orders are orders. Having Kat on their team is a double threat to them. As a human, they can't let her find out their secret and as a woman, Jax and his wolf are irresistibly drawn to her and with every passing day, it gets harder to stay away from her. Even though he has orders to wash her out, he is rooting for her to succeed even though it could put the entire team at risk. But Kat doesn't know how to quit and pushes herself every step of the way, excelling at every task and earning the respect of the entire team. The first book in a series can make or break it and this book has me eagerly anticipating the rest of the series! I enjoyed it because while Ms. Long laid the foundation for more to come, the entire story revolved around the main characters. The attention to every detail, even the most mundane, brought the story to life and the buildup of passion and suspense was worth the wait it took to finally get to the climax. Jax and Kat's struggle with duty and doing the right thing, and even the impact of a relationship between them on their careers was meshed very well with the rest of the story. Jax was everything you expect a team and pack leader to be - dominant, fair and commanded the respect of his men, but the vulnerability he exhibited with Kat, the conflicting urges to protect her and respect her skills endeared him to me. However, Kat stole the entire show in this story. She was formidable, smart, skilled and very much a match for Jax and his wolf. As a human among shifters, she kept up well with them and was an asset to the team in many ways. I also enjoyed the camaraderie among the wolves and the cohesion within the team. I really hope that the rest of the team each gets a book because I would love this series to continue. If you have enjoyed Paige Tyler's shifter series, then this is another you definitely will enjoy!

Perfection! Between a hard tough Marine captain and a strong female Marine trying to prove herself as well as further her career, and you have magic. Never mind the captain is a wolf, all alpha wolf. The chemistry between Jax and Kat was hot and magnetic. They were immediately drawn to each other. Put them in training and their strong wills go to bat. I loved every interaction they had together and their ones with the other guys on Team Bravo. Those men, wolves actually, were awesome. They pushed her and tested her, but wanted her with them. Such a great core group of Marines. Simper Fi and Oorah! I want more from this group. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

This is book one in the Bravo Team WOLF series and it is fantastic! It features Captain Jasper "Jax" Raymond and Corporal Kaitlyn "Kat" Amador. These two have a friendly, sexy and a sometimes rank-pulling banter that keeps you engrossed in the story line. The sizzling, "just under the skin" attraction between them is super HOT! All the guys/wolves on Bravo Team WOLF are amazing in their own special way. What a great story line. I can't wait to see who gets their story next.

In When Danger Bites by Heather Long, loyalties are tested, intrigue abounds, and amidst all this, Kat and Jax struggle to figure out what they have. Corporate Kaitlyn Amador is sent to Bravo Team to investigate their startling success rate. Her cover? To see if she has what it takes to become a Force Recon Marine. But when she meets Captain Jax Raymond and then the rest of his team, her simple investigation doesn't seem so simple anymore. Very few know the truth about Bravo Team and Captain Jax Raymond won't let his attraction to Kat distract him from his own orders. Unfortunately, his wolf has decided she is perfect for him and despite his best efforts, he finds his instincts warring with his sense of duty. This is a slow burn romance and, as the first in a series, there is a lot of world building, including why Bravo Team exists. Ms. Long spends a lot of time detailing the training that Kat must go through as part of her certification. There are some interesting points made about the physical capabilities of women versus men, but Kat is also shown as being very capable (perhaps too capable but I don't want to nitpick there). For all that Kat is there to investigate the team, not a lot of time is actually spent on her investigation, though in fairness, some of this is explained away. However, my biggest problem with this book is the difference in rank between Jax and Kat. Kat is an enlisted Marine with the rank of Corporal. Jax is a Captain in the Marines. He knows from the moment he meets her that she is a Corporal. His flirtation with her from the start is inappropriate - and doubly so once he discovers she is assigned to his team. The fraternization policy for the Marines is pretty clear and well, it bothered me that Jax didn't seem to care that he was violating it. Even when both Kat and Jax bring up the UCMJ, it is clear that Jax has little respect for it. Given that this is a series, I also would have liked to have gotten to know the other members of Bravo Team better. Unfortunately, with one exception, I found too many of them interchangeable and had trouble telling them apart. Some readers may also be disappointed at the very slow build romance between Kat and Jax. Overall, this is a great introduction to the series. In some ways, I almost wish the author had refrained from writing a romantic relationship between Jax and Kat and saved it for a later book. 3.5 stars NB: I was given a copy through Netgalley and have chosen to review it.

Buttoned-up Corporal Kaitlyn Amador is dangerous on every level. As a human, she poses a threat to Marine Captain Jax Raymond’s special Force Recon unit.

A mission that gets more difficult every time she’s near Jax… Review: This is a brand new series that combines two romance genres, shifters and military. The wolf shifters are part of a team of Marines who are the top of what they do. So much so that others are questioning their statistics. That is when Kat is sent in to spy on them by trying to earn a spot on the team. The Author gives us a very descriptive story that makes you feel you are in the middle of the story. I loved the interaction between Kat and Bravo team and the camaraderie is so apparent between them as they train together. Kat and Jax make a great couple, strong, smart and driven. The chemistry is evident between but they both know they cannot act on it because of fraternization and because Jax and the team are keeping secrets. So the romance is a slow build that leads to a super satisfying ending. I cannot wait to see how the series progresses. 4Stars *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book provided by the publisher*

When Danger Bites by Heather Long is Book 1 of the Bravo Team WOLF Series. Ms. Long, you had me at word one. This is a kicking start to a brand new series that brings some of the best types of read to our fingertips...military and paranormal. Alpha males, strong and sassy females and an action-packed storyline you can really sink your teeth into. The world build-up was well-developed and the characters were defined and engaging. A must-read! Please note that an ARC was generously provided in exchange for an honest review of which this is both honest and completely voluntary.

*voluntarily and honestly reviewed the ARC I received from IndieSage PR* This was great. It's my second story that involves shifters working for the military, but because they're a big government secret, things are far more complicated. Jax and Kaitlyn played their parts out well. I loved seeing her meet and exceed the expectations in the training, striving and managing to do beyond her best among the shifters. The writing style was great as well. It took a few chapters for me to get into the pacing but once I did, I was hooked. I loved how it especially flowed in the end, loved the guys, and I just don't know how to explain what I loved except that the author really built on the angst and struggle between morality and duty, played up the romantic connection well, and told a great tale. I'd definitely read more of this series or the author.

If the title doesn’t grab you, the cover pic will! When Danger Bites is the start of a new series – I hope! – and this one is about Bravo Team Wolf. Oorah, these “boys” are hawt! This first story is about Corporal Kaitlyn Amador, a Marine to the “corps” and Captain Jax Raymond, a wolf shifter and leader for Bravo Team. Kat, as she is called, is a human who does not know that shifters exist. All of Bravo Team member are shifters. Yup, chaos ensues! Simplified overview: The Team is an elite special Force Recon unit; they do the dirtiest and hardest jobs the military has. Their shifting abilities are known to very few. Enter Kat. She is sent from her Intelligence boss to infiltrate the unit and to find out why they are so successful. Jax, meanwhile, is tasked by HIS boss to make sure Kaitlyn “flunks” out of joining the Team. There are only a couple of teeny problems: 1. Kat is more than capable (and amazing) in her abilities to make the team, short of having super-shifter strength, agility, etc. 2. And major, no pun intended, sparks fly when Jax and Kat are together. There is a ton of “stuff” going on in this story, where paths twist and turn and have much action. Great read, intense in the story and the (hawt and smexy) relationship between Kat and Jax…AND it gives us the background for what I hope will be more stories about everyone on the Team. I’m hooked! Loved the story and can’t wait for the next one. {That’s a hint, Ms. Long!] I received an advance copy from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.

Another great new military/PNR series to fall in love with! Jax just oozes Alpha and he is just Marine to the core, even though it wasn't really his choice to sign up. Kat is buttoned up so tight, she may just explode! Daughter of a Marine, she was earmarked for intelligence, but she was determined to get to the front line and kept up to date on all her fitness requirements. Now is her chance to get to the front line when she is "asked" to try out for Bravo team. But with a hidden agenda from her superior to adhere to, Kat is put in the position of spying on the very team she wants to join! But with their track record Bravo are just TOO GOOD and everyone wants to know their secrets! Jax meanwhile has been given his own plan to have Kat wash out to keep Bravo's secrets intact. Pity his wolf is claiming Kat as his mate and Jax the man can't help but respect the work and strength displayed by Kat! Loves this. There was a real slow build to the sexy times, which really fit in with the different ranks taboo and trainer/trainee relationship that Jax and Kat face. I loves her repartee with the rest of the team and she had them eating out of her hand. It was heavy on the descriptions of the tests and training that Kat has done and is undertaking so that bogged it down a wee bit. Other than that it was a strongly crafted story with really interesting characters! Cannot wait to see what happens next!

This is a great start to a new series by Heather Long! Kaitlyn Amador has been sent to see why Bravo Team is so successful by her commander. But she is supposed to do it while making it look like she is trying to earn a spot on the team-which she really wants! Jax Raymond is the commander of Bravo Team. He has his own orders and his own secrets. I enjoyed both of them! They both are funny and I liked how the team acted with her. I especially loved how she did so well even with her being human! There was a lot of history of the Bravo Team given, and explanations for why they are even there. It is definitely a book that starts the series off and makes it so the next books in the series will make sense. I really liked not just the main characters but the other characters too. They are all intertwined and definitely make up their own "pack". I was pulled in from the first and it kept my interest all the way until the end. I can't wait to read the next book in this series!

I'm always in the mood for a great paranormal romance , so I was excited to read When danger bites. I really liked Jax and Kaitlyn. Both were strong willed well written characters and the storyline center on two equally stubborn as well as determined leads piqued my interest. I liked how Kaitlyn took every challenge head on because she was no ones wilting flower. My only issue was how the story seemed to drag on a little. Jax and Kaitlyn danced around each for a little longer than I would have liked. Overall It was a good read with great detailed descriptions that made the story that much more enjoyable and I give it 3.5 stars

What happens when you make a hunky team of werewolves into Marines? Hotness overload! When Danger Bites is military paranormal romantic suspense at its finest. I look forward to seeing where this series takes us. In this story we meet Bravo Team WOLF who come under suspicion because they seem to be too good at their missions. A classified unit Bravo Team WOLF is made up of werewolves from various packs and they are very good at what they do. Military intelligence specialist Corporal Kaitlyn Amador is human and assigned as the first woman in the Marines to be assigned to a recon team to Bravo Team WOLF. She has also been assigned to find out the secret to their success. I LOVE Kat. She is squared away and a total Marine. She is determined to succeed. Can she help it if Marine Captain Jax Raymond is the hottest thing she has ever seen? The attraction between them is incendiary. The fact that he is her Captain and she a corporal should put the kybosh on them acting upon their attraction. The fact that they each have secrets should put the kybosh on them acting upon their attraction. But oh when they finally give in it is explosive and very well may cost them both their careers. This book grabbed me from the first page until the last and I didn’t want to go.
