Description

After a massacre decimates half his team and leaves him crippled, Jaxon Law must relearn how to fight-and battle the anger and guilt threatening to overwhelm him. But when he rescues a beautiful woman who awakens his primal instincts, Jax is unprepared for the dangers that lie ahead.

On the run from her employer, brilliant lab assistant Kira Locke has evidence that leads the Alpha Pack on a hunt for someone targeting human civilians with Psy abilities. And as Jax and Kira circle both the killer and each other, Jax will have to decide if the deep connection he feels with Kira is worth breaking the ultimate shifter rule-because bonding with Kira means putting his abilities at risk, and they might be the only tools he has to keep his mate alive. . .

    Primal Law was a good paranormal read, it kept me turning the pages. There wasn't really anything wrong with the whole book, but it didn't wow me either. I will read the next in the series.

    Kira Locke, who discovers something vile about her employers, decides to steal certain documents and is on the run, but then a wolf saves her life, and kills those that would kill her. Jax, has psychic abilities and is a shifter, along with other members on his team. Ever since his team was attacked, he was crippled and his leg still brings much hindrance to him. When he ends up saving a woman in danger, he never realized that Kira would be his mate and that his primal instincts would go into overdrive. But he has no choice but to take Kira from her previous life and to their sanctuary. Kira is outraged at first to being abducted, but she realizes the logic of it. She knows there is no place she would be safe except by Jax's side. As Jax and Kira are around each others presence more and more, their bond strengthens, and their mating is close at hand. Only one thing keeping them from completing their bond....true love. Kira refuses to mate to a man that doesn't love her, she wants him to want it more than just physical desire. When danger threatens Jax and Kira, only by using every one of his abilities, will Jax be able to secure a future together....Primal Law is the first installment of the Alpha Pack series. Now I have seen this series quite a bit but had yet until now, tried it out. When I was able to get the audio book for under $5 at Audible, I couldn't resist. I knew I needed to try this one out. Especially when I love a solid shifter romance, and this one completely sold me. It was all having sex like bunnies or anything, there was much more to the plot and I enjoyed the unique setting and how Jax and Kira met. One of the things that I really liked about Primal Law, is that is begins with a more in depth story of Kira's ex employers and what they are trying to do with anything supernatural. There is quite a bit revealed, and it was quite a thrill listening to this audiobook. The narrator was pretty talented in her inflections of the emotions and tones of the characters throughout the story.Jax is everything you enjoy out of a domineering male, that sends shivers down your spine. He definitely has the whole alpha male pride aspect going on. He definitely is full of heat and passion, but is very tender with Kira. He is full of intense emotions and Kira handles him quite well. Kira manages learning of paranormal creatures quite well, and she adjusts to her new set of circumstances better than I even expected of her. She isn't a fighter by any means, but you see her other talents that complete her relationship with Jax quite well. I had such a fun time getting to know other members of Jax's teams, and I am just dancing on my feet in anticipation for their stories. There is a loyalty among the team, and a jovial teasing that is almost contagious, and make the reader almost envious of the close relationship between them.Primal Law is a thrilling paranormal romance, that sets your heart at a faster pace. It is packed with a suspenseful plot, a mystery to be solved, a fierce desire that turns into a flaming love story that stirs up rich emotion and heartfelt feelings that overflow in tidal waves. STUNNING!!

    Jaxon Law is a member of the Alpha Pack, an elite unit of former Navy SEALs turned wolf shifters on a mission. Out on the town one night, he and his fellow pack members come across Kira Locke, a woman on the run from her nefarious employer. Jax and Kira's attraction is immediate and as they get to know one another, the reason why becomes all too clear...

    Another series that takes every paranormal trope known to man and shoves it all into one book: Navy SEALs and shifters and psychics and fae and witches. The only thing missing is the kitchen sink - not good!

    The writing is plodding with dialogue similar in its ridiculousness to J. R. Ward's BDB series, the plot is predictable and the romance feels forced. Wait . . . it is forced because Jax will literally die if Kira doesn't mate him.

    Unfortunately, there is little to encourage me to continue with the series.

    ETA: Just learned that J.D. Tyler is a pseudonym for Jo Davis. This explains my difficulty with the book as her Firefighters of Station Five series was a flop for me too.

    I have finished the book and I can not tell if I liked it or not.

    I hated the ending, but it was designed to be a cliff hanger so I understand what they were going for. So while I was pissed at the book, it was not because of the writing.


    That being said, if you like shifter alpha male team stories then you will like this one. But do not expect anything extraordinary. I actually was more interested in the Necromancer storyline than the main hero.


    I guess what really bothered me about the plot line is that (spoiler) we spend the whole book moving to a conclusion, but it's really just a very long first Act.

    I might read the next book, or not hard to say.

    LOVED IT! What I thought of Alpha Pack #1: I have had Primal Law on my shelf for awhile now. I love J.D. Tyler (aka Jo Davis) from her firefighters series. I know she knows how to write hot alpha men that can melt you in a heartbeat. However, I want to say that what blew me away about Primal Law was how well she combined Paranormal elements with a really good Romantic Suspense novel. In fact, I would have no problem recommending this to a romantic suspense reader that had qualms about paranormal. I think they would enjoy this series completely. Jax and Kira are one sizzling couple! I dare you not to blush a bit while reading :) Plus it is full of #NakedShifters so how can you lose?

    I was really impressed with this book. I liked the world J.D. Tyler is building. I'm ready for more. If you've read The Firefighters series of Jo Davis, this is the same writer. I think this is going to be a good series.

    Primal Law is the first book in a new paranormal adult romance series focusing on shifters. I am such a sucker for shifters, so when I saw this book I was eager to dive right in. We open with Jaxon fighting to save his life after being betrayed by the women he gave his heart to. He comes out of a trap she set for him and his teammates with an injury to his leg and a huge amount of guilt, especially since not all of his team made it out alive. He vows to keep his heart guarded from now on, specifically when it comes to women. We fast forward to six months later with Kira taking samples from a lab she works at because she suspects her bosses are up to no good. While she is on the run she ends up cornered and fears for her life, until a man, who shifts into a wolf, comes charging in to rescue her. Her rescuer, Jax, has an instant connection to Kira and tells her she is now coming back to his team’s complex since she has seen what he really is. She is in shock over everything that just happened so she agrees to go with him.When we get to the complex and meet the other members of Jax’s team is when things start to get a little interesting. The prologue of this book and the beginning were setting it up to be something very intriguing, but once I got further in my mind started to wander. There were a couple of things that bothered me about the book and the problems started when Kira makes it to the complex and starts to wander on her own. She stumbles across a section where there are paranormal creatures being held because they are considered too dangerous to be given their freedom. Kira feels an immediate pull to them and wants to help rehabilitate them. She meets one in particular, a fae prince, that she talks to and on her first try gets him to talk back to her, agree to remain docile, and convinces the man in charge of the complex to release the fae prince and live in his own quarters. This prince has been there for a long time and has never spoken a word to anyone ever and recently tried to kill himself. I just found it hard to believe that Kira could get through to him so quickly. I wanted her to visit with him more than just once before a huge breakthrough was made.I think that is my overall issue with this novel. I wanted J.D. to scratch the surface more with the characters emotions and backgrounds. The foundation for the story is there. I loved the new take on the shifters and enjoyed getting to know a new cast, but the characters were just a little too flat. They had no depth and as a result I did not connect with them as much as I would have liked too. J.D. had so many wonderful ideas, but she did not follow through with them fully and as a result the story was very one dimensional.As for the two main characters, Jax and Kira, I did not come to feel anything for the two of them. I liked them at the beginning and thought their relationship started off well, but as it progressed it felt more clinical than emotional. They made life altering decisions with their heads and not with their hearts. For example, once a male finds his mate if they do not complete the bond he gets very sick and weak, so Kira has a large decision on her hands. Be with Jax and complete the bond or he will ultimately die. Not sure how I feel about that little piece of mythology, but my point is when they make the decision it is very logical and businesslike, I did not feel the emotional side of this choice at all. To me bonding with someone forever should be a very heartfelt decision and Kate seems to go through the pros and cons of the decision with a very businesslike demeanor.The overall vibe I got from this book was almost Disney like. Everything that went wrong came to a resolution so easily and I wanted there to be more struggle and hardship involved. In a world where all the creatures we fear that go bump in the night actually exist I expect darkness and for the characters to be put through grueling trials. I don’t expect them to keep their language almost squeaky clean and have almost not tension whatsoever. Everything was resolved too easily and it left the world lacking in emotional and suspense.I know it seems like I am really getting down on this book, but overall I did like the story. I am intrigued enough with the plot to try the next book and see how it goes. J.D. has included all the elements that I love in paranormal romance, they just did not all come together as well as I would have liked. I am hoping when we get to the next book we will learn more about the characters and the series will pick up more steam.
