Wolf Trouble (SWAT #2)
by Paige Tyler
Coming August 4, 2015
He's in trouble with a capital T...
There's never been a female on the Dallas SWAT team and Senior Corporal Xander Riggs prefers it that way. The elite pack of alpha male wolfshifters is no place for a woman. But Khaki Blake is no ordinary woman.
When Khaki walks through the door attractive as hell and smelling like heaven, Xander doesn't know what the heck to do. Worse, she's put under his command and Xander's protective instincts go on high alert. When things start heating up both on and off the clock, it's almost impossible to keep their heads in the game and their hands off each other...
I have been a huge fan of Paige Tyler for a while now and when I fell in love with her SWAT characters while reading the first book, I knew that I had to read Wolf Trouble ASAP. And let me tell you, Paige Tyler did not disappoint with this one! While I loved Hungry Like the Wolf, the first book in the series, Wolf Trouble surpassed that one and easily became my favorite Paige Tyler read ever!
I think what intrigues me the most about this series, at least this book in particular, is that Khaki and the other werewolves had no idea what they were until a traumatic event forced the change on them, and even then it's not like she woke up knowing that she was a werewolf. Oh no, Khaki went three months experiencing these weird changes in her body before Gage, the hero from book one and the leader of the SWAT team, recruited her for their all wolf SWAT team.
Khaki's life has been pretty craptastic since she broke up with her asshat ex-boyfriend and she jumps on the opportunity to join SWAT and start a new life for herself. Being a new werewolf definitely has some fall backs though, like the fact that she has no idea how to shift and is ashamed to admit that to the rest of her teammates, especially Xander, whom Khaki has developed a bit of an obsession over.
Xander is thrown for a loop the first time he meets Khaki and tries his hardest to get her off of his team. What's the issue? Her smell is so intoxicating that it distracts him. And, of course, Xander, being a guy that doesn't know how to deal with the way he reacts to Khaki, he comes off as gruff and demanding and it makes Khaki feel horrible until she realizes that he acts that way because she has the same effect on him that he has on her.
Watching these two give in to the inevitable was definitely the highlight of the book for me. Once they realized there was no more denying the attraction, these two were smoking hot. I'm talking fangs out, ripping clothes, breaking furniture sexy times that definitely had me wishing I was a werewolf just to experience that kind of animal hunger.
Along with the romance, there's a lot of action in this one that definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. It was more, shall we say, gruesome, than I was expecting but I almost think that made it better. I wanted to see Khaki fully embracing her inner wolf and those gruesome events definitely forced her to do that and then some.
Obviously I loved this book and I could go on and on about it but I'll stop with saying this... If you're a fan of paranormal romance, you have got to get your hands on a copy of this book ASAP. Now I get to sit here and patiently wait for the next book in the series.
