Captured by Two Alphas (Alpha Legend 1) by Tara Rose

I won this book from a giveaway.

Shifter Spin-off
3 out of 5 stars

What do you like?
The story had good flow; the introduction of new characters was smooth. This book wrap upped some of the characters  from the previous series. There was some nice foreshadowing hinting at the next ménage.

What do you not like?
I felt that I really missed a lot since I haven't read all the books from the former series. This book felt more like a suspense book with a romantic relationship as a side story, rather than a romance with suspense. While the book did seem to focus on the suspense most of the actual suspense takes place off screen. There was a lot of doubt and cynicism in the characters. Despite their abilities to read each other they didn't trust and believe in each other. I was also not comfortable with the interrogation room scene, it was just too over the top for me.

Recommend it to a friend? If you have been keeping up with the series and the spinoffs, this would be a good read to have. You can also read it as the beginning of a new series but there might be some nuances that you don't understand. Overall, it was a good read.
