Haven is determined to avenge her brother, Harper, who was brutely murdered by a man called Boomer...or at least that's what she's been told. Miles, otherwise known as Boomer, never thought that love and a mate could come his way particularly after his upbringing. But when Haven steps through his door with every intention to kill him, something changes in them both.
I love this series! The male shifter characters (and in this book the introduced members of the Fang Gang) have a good amount of banter and camaraderie between them and it makes returning to one of their stories like returning to old friends.
Haven was a good female lead. She was inexperienced but she wasn't completely naive nor did she make a big deal out of it. Rather she was determined and confident in what she could achieve. She was also a moral person. Even though she set out to get revenge, when it came to it it was much less black and white than she expected and she acted accordingly.
There had previously been a fair bit of mystery surrounding Boomer's past. And actually the true reveal of what happened actually had me welling up a bit. Even for it to happen to a fictional character had me at the point of horror. Unfortunately I can see how that could be how human kind could react to shifters.
The chemistry between Miles and Haven was there, but there was also a softer side of their relationship, particularly when it came to things like talking Miles out of a major shift changes and other such situations. It worked well for them and made their relationship feel more real.
Act of Submission added more to the PSI Ops series as well as providing a great stand alone story!
