5/5 Review: Wolf Trouble (SWAT) by Paige Tyler




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..

**********
After Khaki is blackballed by her fellow cops she is offered a job with SWAT. She moves to a new town and Xander is her boss. She is attracted to Xander. She does not want to date another co-worker after her last cop boyfriend turned out to be a psychopath. She is not comfortable with  her abilities as she can’t shift into a wolf and she can’t see in the dark like the others. She thinks that something may be  wrong with her. Xander is instantly attracted to Khaki.  Xander wonders if he can work with her when he is so distracted by her scent.Who will she go to when she needs help with her wolf side?

If you are looking for a bigger than life hero, look no further, Xander the wolf is all that and more! He is a strong alpha male character with a sensitive side that all women dream of. The strongest part of the plot is the action and the heavy, passionate romance.Things move along quickly .The story is introduced enough so the reader isn't confused and then its off like a rocket. The romance is scorching and formulaic like the series before it. Arrogant alpha male and Alpha female who won't be dictated to share a strong attraction and end up in fast and furious fight and love scenes. I happen to get a kick out of these stories feeling familiar in the paranormal version of a cozy read. I like that the challenges are mostly external and these are easy reads as a result.

I have to say I loved everything about this book and think it was perfect. The opening scene was brilliant and a memorable way to introduce the heroine. The hero and heroine, Xander and Khaki, are very likeable and strong characters. The romance and suspense components of this book were well balanced, and Xander and Khaki characterizations worked perfectly in both aspects. The addition of side characters we have come to know and love from the previous books just adds a new dynamic layer to the action. It's nice to catch up and get a small snippet of how things are going with them.
