You wouldn’t believe my excitement when I learned that TO LOVE A WOLF was going to be Cooper’s book. He made such a lasting impression in the last book that I was thrilled to know that he was going to be getting his own happily ever after.
Now I’ve always been a fan of Paige Tyler’s writing style. The camaraderie between the characters paired with the fast-paced action and suspense makes for a very easy read. I can sit down and easily devour a book in a couple of hours and that was certainly the case with this book. TO LOVE A WOLF definitely starts off with a bang. I just love being in Cooper’s head. He’s sweet and charming but also wildly protective too.
But when he is caught in the middle of a bank robbery, his aggressiveness gets the best of him. He effectively shuts down the bank robbers but his expert precision and strength is caught on camera, making officials wonder how a man is able to throw someone that far. What they don’t know is that Cooper is one of many werewolves that make up the SWAT team.
It’s at this bank robbery that he also meets Everly, an unsuspecting woman who becomes enthralled by Cooper’s charm and good looks. Right before the shots are fired, she manages to get his number. But she’ll never know what their first date will be like unless she can find a way to survive.
I liked Everly but I didn’t completely fall in love with her. And to be honest, I’m not sure why. She’s a sweet girl but something about her didn’t come across as genuine. I felt like the way that she and Cooper bantered with one another was a little forced, maybe a little rehearsed. It didn’t have that usual easiness that often translate to genuine chemistry.
Also, I wasn’t a fan of how Cooper’s therapist was portrayed. As someone who studied Psychology, I often feel like authors never truly get it right. This just wasn’t my favorite part of the book.
So all in all, this book turned out to be a little different than I expected, but I do think Paige Tyler is still an excellent writer. If you’re a fan of wolves, hot romance and thrilling suspense, you’re guaranteed to love SWAT.
