Jace (#2 of the River Pack) by Alisa Woods

Author                      Alisa Woods 
Publication Date    4 October 2015 
Genre                       New Adult Paranormal  Romance 

His wolf is out of control. She’s a wild thing that won’t be tamed.
Ex-Army Specialist Jace River has a lock on his bedroom door, but it’s not to keep anyone out; it’s to keep his nightmares from breaking loose. His wolf is an out-of-control killer, which means he can never risk shifting, never truly be part of his pack, and definitely never take a mate.

Piper Wilding works for the Army as a civilian, traveling the world for her work in counterintelligence and fighting the bad guys while bedding down the good ones. The best part? It keeps her far from her asshole father in Seattle, the rest of the Wilding pack, and the pressure to take a mate. Settling down isn’t her thing, and after what happened to her mother, Piper vowed she would never be tied down by magic or men again.

While Jace’s wolf keeps him Sleepless in Seattle, Piper returns home to find her missing kid brother. When she breaks into the River brother’s safehouse, sparks fly and claws come out. Her sexy skills threaten to bring out Jace’s wolf, and Jace’s good-guy hotness reminds Piper how tempting shifter men can be. They’re like fire and gasoline, and as they race to find Piper’s brother, the heat threatens to burn down all their carefully constructed walls. But falling in love has never been so dangerous—and being together means taking risks that neither might survive.

Jace is a complete novel with HEA, the second in the River Pack Wolves trilogy (all standalone stories, but best enjoyed if you read them in order!).

Contains scorching hot shifters, alpha military heroes, and sexy spy girls. Only readers over 18 should dive into the deliciously hot world of the River brothers.

Jace, one of the three River brothers was introduced in Jaxon, book one of this series. There were indications that he had issues with his wolf and all is revealed in this second instalment. 

Jace is in the security business with his two brothers, Jaxon and Jared. Despite his difficulties with his wolf, he keeps his sense of humour and is very loyal to his pack mates. He is also very kind and considerate but that doesn't mean he suffers fools gladly. 

Piper is from the Wilding pack and lives up to her name but is this projected wild personality her coping mechanism? She is feisty, independent and a loner but when it comes to her brother Noah, she won't leave any stones unturned to protect him. She sets out to find the reasons behind his disappearance and this is where she meets Jace. Not the usual first encounter! 

Jace is determined to help her, especially as he is aware of who and what might be involved from what took place in Jaxon's story. Will she accept his help? 

The plot thickens as more evidences of the conspiracy behind the disappearances come to light. A dark and dangerous situation, indeed! 

The interactions between Jace and Piper become easier and when the reasons behind their issues are revealed, their relationship intensifies and becomes somewhat steamy hot. With what transpired in their pasts, can this relationship develop into something more? 

I enjoyed Jace's story as much as I enjoyed Jaxon's. Even though some of the mysteries are resolved, there is more to come and I look forward to reading Jared's story to see how it all ends. I would fully recommend this series which is nicely paced and full of action, mystery, love, loyalty and greed. It shows to what length some are willing to go for the sake of power!

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
