One man is getting in the way of her revenge…her mate.

Werewolf Marisol Cabrera has one goal in life: kill the man who murdered her entire pack. When she meets alpha werewolf Stephan and realizes he’s her mate, all her carefully laid plans dissipate in seconds. By all accounts, she should hate Stephan and everything he stands for. After all, he’s a dirty arms dealer doing business with her mortal enemy. Unfortunately, every time the dominating wolf gets close, she can’t deny her growing attraction for the last man in the world she expected to want.

But things aren’t what they seem…

Undercover DEA agent Stephan Lazos is about to make the biggest bust of his career, but everything that can go wrong, does. He never expected to discover his mate while on the job. She saves his life and his cover when he almost shifts in the middle of a crowded Miami nightclub, but that doesn’t mean he trusts her. The clock is ticking and if he doesn’t figure out what secrets the sexy she-wolf is keeping from him, he might not just lose his job, but his life in the process.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.5 stars-entertaining and enjoyable 3.5 stars--WORTH THE RISK is the second installment in Savannah Stuart’s (Katie Reus) adult, contemporary Miami Scorcher paranormal romance novella series. This is DEA agent/wolf shifter Stephan Lazos, and werewolf Marisol Cabrera’s storyline. WORTH THE RISK can be read as a stand alone; any important information from the previous storyline is imparted where necessary. Told from dual third person points of view WORTH THE RISK focuses on an undercover operation by the DEA that follows Stephan Lazos as he comes face to face with his future. While undercover Stephan will be introduced to Marisol Cabrera and knows immediately that the petite werewolf is his mate. But Stephan is on assignment and doesn’t want to place Marisol in the direct line of fire. What Stephan doesn’t know is that Marisol is targeting the same man that Stephan and his fellow agents have worked months to set up but for a completely different set of reasons. Marisol has been on the hunt for weeks searching for the people that destroyed her pack and her family but finding her mate was never high on the agenda until Stephan Lazos stands between her future and her past. Marisol must keep secret her reasons for her appearance in Miami; and Stephan must keep secret his true identity from the woman that calls to his inner beast. WORTH THE RISK is a sexually aggressive storyline with the majority of the focus on the carnal/mating relationship between Marisol and Stephan. The $ex scenes are numerous, graphic and provocative but our couple have yet to express their love or desire for a happily ever after. The secondary and supporting characters include Stephan’s brother Thomas, as well as their parents, and pack alpha. Stephan’s brother’s mate Carly (Unleashed Temptation #1) plays a supporting role as she prepares for Nick’s upcoming birthday. We are introduced to two new female shifters including Marisol’s sister Paz whose storyline will be told next in POWER UNLEASHED. WORTH THE RISK will begin to focus on the treatment of shifters; the specieism faced by the supernatural powers in light of their discovery by the human population. The storyline ends on a cliffhanger when Marisol’s past has once again resurfaced threatening to destroy everything our heroine has finally found. A call will bring in the Council Enforcer in the hopes of uncovering the people responsible for targeting the supernatural races. WORTH THE RISK is a quick read: an enjoyable and entertaining storyline but I found myself zoning out with the copious amount of $ex and sexual scenarios-I felt the story and DEA investigation took a back seat to the $ex, and I started skipping and jumping forward. Katie Reus is one of my favorite authors and I have no issues with her style of story telling but WORTH THE RISK got caught up in the $ex between Marisol and Stephan. The characters are intelligent and engaging; the happily ever after has yet to be told.
