Cole's Redemption (Alpha Pack #5) by J.D. Tyler

Once, they were Navy SEALS. Now they are the Alpha Pack: a top secret team of wolf shifters with Psy powers who take on the darkest dangers on Earth. But sometimes the greatest danger lies within their own hearts....

Healer and black wolf shifter Zander Cole has survived horrors that would have broken a weaker man. But when a battle leaves him deaf and his powers dimmed, Zan is devastated. Believing himself to be a burden to his team, he sees only one option: leave the Pack forever.

White wolf shifter Selene Westfall knows pain—she is certain her father was responsible for her mother’s death. And she lives to exact revenge. So when she is challenged by a savage black wolf, she puts up a vicious fight—only to become the black wolf’s Bondmate as a result of his bite.

Two damaged souls—one filled with hatred and one who’s lost his reason for living—are forced together as they come to terms with their unlikely, turbulent bond. A love neither expected may be all that stands between them and a killer trying desperately to keep the past dead and buried....

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Selene had loved her father as a young girl until he disappeared after her mother’s death.  She had been told that he was responsible for the death of her mother and since then she has lived to take revenge on her father.  The only trouble is that her bondmate works with her father as a member of the Alpha Pack and is sworn to protect his brothers. 

Rushing in, he hit the wolf from the side and sent them both skidding across the ground.  Immediately, he leaped on the intruder’s back before he could gain his footing, driving him into the dirt and leaves.  The other wolf was no match for Zan’s weight and couldn’t throw him no matter how he struggled.  Blood lust roared through his veins, and he lunged, sinking his fangs through thick fur into the wolf’s neck.

When Zander realizes that the wolf is a female he also feels the bond between them lock into place.  They haven’t even exchanged names; all he had been thinking was to protect his boss.  Big shock, however when they do exchange names, she is his bosses daughter. 

“Selene Westfall.”  She raised one eyebrow.  Congrats are in order, eh?  I mean, since your boss just became you father-in-law and all.”

Zander had been suffering with hearing loss since their last mission and he was growing more and more concerned with his place as a member of the pack.  After biting Selene his hearing starts to return.  He has been warned not to use his healing ability again until his brain has a chance to heal.  Zander is a healer and it goes against everything that he is not to heal someone if it is needed.

“It won’t be easy.  As for me, my fighting days are over unless my hearing improves a lot more.”  He looked away, out the window.  “I almost got Nix killed earlier.  That’s why I was out for a run when I came across you and Nick.  I was trying to decide whether to leave here for good.”

Selene must decide if she will stay with Zander.  She must find out the truth about her father and also what happened to her mother. Both will face the ultimate test when they face an evil from the past.

Zan?  What’s wrong?  What’s happening?  It was a trap, he sent to her.  There was a bomb and it went off.  Baby, we need help.  Oh my god! Are you all right?

New alliances will be formed, new abilities will be uncovered and old hurts will be healed.
