“What I love about this book is that the heroine is just as badass and as skilled as the other men are, possibly even more so. Khaki just has this self confidence that I wished I had.” ~ Under the Covers
Paige Tyler is a new-to-me author. I’ve had my eye on her books for quite some time now and am just not kicking myself for not reading her sooner. WOLF TROUBLE is actually the second book in the SWAT series which stands for Special Wolf Alpha Team. And yup, you guessed it! All the members of the team are werewolves.
HR has called them in and wants them to make a chance to the Pack. They require some more diversity and push them to take on a female member. The problem is, how will they keep their special abilities a secret from the newcomer? Well, that’s pretty simple. All they have to do is find a female werewolf who is capable of keeping up with them.
This badass werewolf is sexy cop Khaki Blake. Tired of working with inept cops, Khaki jumps at the chance at SWAT when she gets the offer. The only thing is, she is surprised to find that they too are werewolves. Suddenly, she feels a little more at ease but when she discovers she’s a different kind of werewolf, she wonders if the Pack will still want her.
What I love about this book is that the heroine is just as badass and as skilled as the other men are, possibly even more so. Khaki just has this self confidence that I wished I had. Even when she is thrust into this entirely different world she’s never been a part of before, Khaki does it with both hands at the ready and a level eye to everything. She really is magnificent.
The hero Senior Corporal Zander Riggs is a little hard on Khaki at first. He comes off as a mean bastard in the beginning but that’s because he has an immediate connection to Khaki and doesn’t see it as appropriate. Their romance isn’t too complicated but there is a lot of sexual tension between the two that builds organically and in a believable manner. Admit all the action and suspense, I’d say there’s a great balance between all aspects of the story.
But what I’m most excited about is actually the other guys in the story. The rest of the Pack have great camaraderie together and once you see them all messing with one another, it’s hard not to like them. I cannot wait to read more about the other guys. To be honest, it’s been awhile since I’ve been this excited about a group of heroes so that’s saying something I think. Max seems to be a favorite but really, what woman could refuse any of them?
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
