Wild Cowboy Wolf
Author: Kait Ballenger
What I’m Talking About:
Wild Cowboy Wolf is the 5th book in the Seven Ranger Shifters series by Kait Ballenger and it features Blaze the wisecracking wolf of the pack and Dakota the more serious goal driven she-wolf.
Blaze and Dakota have been best friends for years but Blaze has loved her from the start. Everyone in the pact knows it except for Dakota. Blaze has held back especially when he returned a few years ago from a mission in Russia. He is afraid his past will put any of his loved ones in danger.
Blaze is the pack’s head security and computer guru. He is super smart and strong like any other wolf warrior, and he makes everyone laugh. But what everyone doesn’t know is that he’s more dangerous than they think. He doesn’t want anyone, especially Dakota, knowing about his time he spent in Russia because he’s afraid they will look at him differently.
Dakota like other she-wolves in the pack is hoping to becoming another female warrior for the pack. (After Sierra was named the first in the previous book, they have hopes for more.) She is also the veterinarian for the pack, taking care of the cattle and other livestock. She is the type of person who sets goals and then doesn’t stop until she met them, only to make another list to achieve. Kissing her BFF has never been on the list but at one of their movie nights she wonders (and asks Blaze) why they’ve never…. You know. So she kisses him.
Blaze manages to stop before things go to far from that kiss. They spend the rest of the story, working through their feelings for each other and protecting the pack from dangerous enemies.
Wild Cowboy Wolf is a great addition to the series, and I loved seeing these long time best friends find passion and love with each other. I look forward to the next installment, Cowboy Wolf Outlaw releasing in Summer of 2022.
My Rating: B+ Liked it a lot
About the Book:
Blaze Carter is the cowboy wolf with the most dangerous desires. One of the wolf ranch’s elite warriors, the Grey Wolf security technologist is as smart as a whip, the quickest to joke, and the first to act on his impulses—carnal or otherwise. But this cowboy has a dark secret he can never escape, and Blaze fears the day when his demons catch up to him.
Dakota Nguyen has everything a she-wolf could ever want—an appointment as one of the pack’s first female elite warriors, a career as the ranch’s veterinarian, and an endearing family that’s equal parts loveable and trouble. There’s just one thing missing—someone to share it with. Enter: Blaze. For the first time ever, Dakota’s now seeing her best friend in a whole new light. But to act on her desires could have deadly consequences for them both…
