Chase the Darkness by J.D. Tyler

The author of Wolf’s Fall returns with her “hot and to die for”* Alpha Pack—a top-secret band of Navy SEALs with Psy powers and shifter prowess whose dangerous missions sometimes require a more intimate call to duty…

Believed dead by his Pack mates, Micah Chase, a wolf shifter and Dreamwalker, was held captive for months, subject to tortures that left him physically scarred and emotionally unsettled.

Now under the care of the Alpha Pack’s doctors, he’s been prescribed an experimental healing drug, but he still can’t shake the nightmares. Even more damning is that Micah’s problems pose a danger to his team, and if he doesn’t get himself under control, they’ll all suffer a terrible fate.

There is a key to his salvation. Jacee is a beautiful coyote shifter, and though her kind is hated, she’s falling in love with a man whose very future is in her hands. Together they’ll face his personal demons as well as a deadly enemy—and for both of them desire has never come with such risk.

*Dark Faerie Tales

I read this book as a stand alone, and I do think others can read it as a stand alone. However, I think I would have enjoyed this book more if I had read the previous books in this series. It was a little hard for me to keep track of all of the characters in this book. I also felt like I missed out on important character development from the other books. Reading the other books in this series would have made this book flow easier for me. 

Even though it was a little hard for me to get into this book, I still enjoyed it! Micah was the main character, and I really enjoyed watching his character development. He was the wounded warrior that I couldn't help but fall in love with. He struggle with a lot of issues, and it broke my heart. I loved watching him grow stronger emotionally. Jacee helped Micah develop through out this book, and I thought that was really sweet. Jacee balanced Micah's personality really well. They were very cute together and had a lot of chemistry. Their romance felt like insta-love, and I wish it would have been developed more. They knew they were destined for each other, but I wish the romance would have moved at a slower pace. The romance would have been much more believable that way. 

Overall, I really liked this book. There was a lot of suspense and mystery in this book that helped keep the book very interesting. The plot was well paced through out the book. One of the main things I didn't like in this book was how the shifters would shift into a half human/half wolf form. It was really bizarre to image in my head, and I didn't like it at all. Another thing I didn't like was the relationship Jacee had with one of the pack members in the past. I felt like it was not necessary and everyone's reactions to it made my eyes roll.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a  new shifter romance! I think fans of this series will especially like this fun and steamy book.
