To Love a Wolf
is the fourth book in Paige Tyler SWAT (Special Wolf Alpha Team) series – featuring EOD/IED specialist Landry Cooper. It can be read as stand-alone, although I recommend you to try the previous books, just to be around the gorgeous Alpha team of wolves *laugh*.
Considering that this series has a theme of Soul-Mate or The One
, it involves very heavily on insta-love between the hero and heroine, where they fall in love with one another within span of days.. However, what makes it work is that Paige Tyler also brings different ‘problems’ in between the romance. It somehow dilutes the insta-love effect.
In this case, it also helps that Cooper and Everly have a very strong sexual chemistry! From the moment they exchange conversation at the bank where they first meet, the sparks between them just sizzle. It’s easy to believe in these two – and the relationship feels natural, like I know that they are just meant to be. Disregarding the fast process of falling in love, it just works.
I loved Cooper so much – he is the person in SWAT team that everyone turns to when they have problems, he’s observant, loyal, and just wonderful. I also loved Everly for being strong-headed and willing to stand up to her family when needed. I loved them together, their banters are fun. I LOVED when Cooper brings Everly to the ‘best date ever’ one night and then teaches her to rappel the next.
It doesn’t mean that it’s an easy road to true love for the two, though. Cooper’s secret identity (of being a werewolf) ends up driving a wedge between them and Everly’s family, which has a strong reason why they want to keep her away from Cooper. This brings a different kind of emotional turbulent for the relationship, and it was SO GOOD.
On top of that, there is also a case that Cooper is involved with, as he helps FBI division to find out bomber who killed a Dallas PD cop. I had to admit that during the climax, some of Landry’s words to Everly just made me all teary-eyed. Such a sap I am *laugh*.
It’s another enjoyable installment of the series. I am definitely in for the next book – and I wonder who the hero will be next.A Guest Review for The Blogger GirlsThe ARC is provided by the publisher via Netgalley for an exchange of fair and honest review.
