Bad Blood by L. A. Banks is the story of Sasha Trudeau's discovery that there are other beings in the world besides Demon infected werewolves and her Special Ops brothers who consists of the Paranormal Containment Unit. Sasha and a nucleus of brothers are survivors of demon infected werewolf attacks and hold their loyalties to each other, the government, and their medical support team. After Sasha returns from a separate mission she has reason to believe that her team-pack is in danger but when she searches their homes her life changes forever. You will read about werewolves, shadow wolves, and double dealing vampires making deals with the government and the wolves. You will also read about a romance, the beginning of a triangle, and finally the relationship between a parent and a child.
Somewhere between the story of the military missions and the coverup of the paranormal world we find a romance between Sasha and Max, Alpha of the North American Shadow Wolves, who's mission is the same as hers – to contain or eradicate the infected werewolves. They have an immediate attraction and he wants her as his mate but she will not commit because they only knew each other a few days. There is a lot of sex going on in this book so if you are looking for YA do not pick this one up. Sasha and Max can't keep their hands off each other and the story becomes all about them.
I liked this novel and will continue to read the rest of the series. Well, I must say that I do like a good paranormal romance and this one is a must read and a good start of a series. It is not a YA read so please do not expect this novel to have sexual tension without penetration – not happening here. There may also be a bit of foul language but I must say that I have heard more on prime-time television. Well done L. A. Banks and may you rest in peace.
