Get ready for another action-packed installment of Paige Tyler’s SWAT series!

The guys are back in Dallas and trying to cope with the new information about werewolf hunters that they gained in New Orleans. At an awards ceremony of a few of their own, Max Lowry meets Lana Mason and knows she’s the fated One for him. She also happens to be a werewolf but before Max can settle in and do his own happy dance, he finds out that Lana doesn’t know she’s a werewolf AND she’s the daughter of the deputy chief in charge of the police department’s specialized Tactical Division aka the guy in charge of the SWAT team. So instead of making things easy it actually makes things worse but Max isn’t one to give up and so he and Lana start dating like normal humans. Until the threat of the werewolf hunters reaches Dallas and Max has no choice but to give Lana a crash course on what she is. She doesn’t handle it well of course and the timing couldn’t be worse as the SWAT team is being spread thin with so many werewolves coming to them for protection.

I always enjoy each couple in the SWAT series but Max and Lana are definitely one of my favorites. Max has always seemed like a happy-go-lucky guy until you find out (or remember if you’re a long time fan) that Tyler’s werewolves don’t become werewolves until they’ve experienced a traumatic event. Max’s “event” is one that can hit home for victims of domestic violence because Max is a victim. As big, strong, and good as he is, his past shows a time when he wasn’t. It makes him relatable and an almost perfect hero. He’s funny, charming, and has a protective streak a mile wide.

Lana surprised me too. First of all, she didn’t have a clue that she was a werewolf so that made things a bit interesting. She was so spunky and sassy too! And confident! Lana didn’t let anyone, even her dad cast her into the role of the powerless, placating female while he played the bossy, overprotective father. She was an adult and let him know it.

Paige Tyler delivered more this time around and it made Wolf Trouble a better story for it. There’s more action, more suspense, more romance, and of course more hunky SWAT guys because this book, while a standalone romance needs Max’s fellow alpha wolves to really make the secondary plot work. The book packs a real punch as the impending clash with the vicious and violent werewolf hunters takes a big step forward and hits the SWAT guys close to home. Before this conflict, these wolves were virtually unbeatable and invulnerable to anything but the women (and men) they end up falling for but these hunters aren’t messing around and they’ve come prepared. At one point Wolf Trouble had me biting my nails because Max and his pack were NOT prepared for the attacks against them and it was a close call! That’s good writing folks and I can’t wait to see how the SWAT guys and ladies fight back.
