Wild as a Wolf
Author: Paige Tyler
Reviewer: Sophia Rose
What I’m Talking About:
Second chance romance werewolf-style! I greatly anticipate each new sizzling and suspenseful installment that comes out in the S.W.A.T. paranormal romance series and Wild As a Wolf was no exception – the way it dove in from the opening lines and kept up the pace to the end.
Wild as a Wolf is fifteenth in the series and I’ve enjoyed getting the books in order, but I think newbies would have little trouble diving into most books in the series.
Hale has already seen himself as subpar for a werewolf because his sense of smell is not as keen as others since his nose was broken as a teen, but he’s made up for that deficit by training hard in other disciplines and working with his alpha wolf team.
The Dallas area has been hit with some big baddies that give the powerful alpha wolves of the SWAT team a run for their money and I was delighted when Hale was rescued by a mysterious warrior woman when he was losing to one of these supervillains in an alley.
Only, she’s not unknown to him. Karissa is his teenage crush and the woman he’s never forgotten. Karissa was hurt when things broke off between her and Hale when they had a good thing going in their teens. They both carried some blame and hurt, but I really appreciated how the pair kept the angst from this to a minimum and acted like mature adults when they sorted it out. Attraction is as strong as ever and now they have to get to know their adult selves with the paranormal secrets they are both keeping.
Wild As a Wolf was just what I look for when I come to this series. Strong and suspenseful paranormal policing action and a mature adult romance, alpha team camaraderie, and villains to make it interesting. I can’t tout this series to PNR fans enough.
My Rating: A Loved It
About the Book:
Nothing is more powerful than a werewolf―excerpt perhaps a mighty warrior. Nothing surprises SWAT alpha Hale Delaney―he’s seen almost everything since he became a werewolf. But when he goes head-to-head with Dallas’s newest supernatural villain and is saved by the woman he loved and lost a decade ago, his world is turned upside down.
Karissa Bonifay has always been fierce and capable, but now she’s a sword-wielding warrior in her own right. The more time Hale and Karissa spend together hunting the dangerous supernaturals terrorizing the city, the closer they come to the truth about what really came between them all those years ago…
