INTRODUCING SWAT: SPECIAL WOLF ALPHA TEAM
They’re on target
They’re as alpha as men can get
The Dallas SWAT team is hiding one helluva secret…they’re a pack of wolf shifters.
The team of elite sharpshooters is ultra-secretive—and also the darlings of Dallas. This doesn’t sit well with investigative journalist Mackenzie Stone. They must be hiding something…and she’s determined to find out what.
Keeping Mac at a distance proves impossible for SWAT team commander Gage Dixon. She’s smart, sexy, and makes him feel alive for the first time in years. But she’s getting dangerously close to the truth—and perilously close to his heart...
Romantic suspense with werewolves! Yes sign me in, please!
Mac is a journalist after a break out story of the “dream team” of Dallas. Everyone thinks they are perfect, but she knows there is something dirty in this. Gage is the captain of his pack and he is trying to protect them all by watching out Mac. In the middle of it all, there is the mob guy after the team looking for revenge. Will they survive it all?
Ok! I’m a characters type of reader. I enjoy meeting them, befriending them, connecting with them and even love them a little. When you are offer a group of SIXTEEN alpha werewolves to read about, what is not to like?
I really like Gage and I’ve like Mac almost until the end. Yeah, she had to have her TSTL moment at the end.
But, the most interesting thing about Hungry Like The Wolf is the werewolves world the author has created. It’s different than the usual. I love shifters, it’s my favorite type of read. It’s very refreshing when you can be surprise, in a good way, and see something different. The author has masterfully created her wolves connected to the real world. They first shift because of tension and they are mostly attracted to the smell of things.
Because I enjoy shifters so much I miss reading more about their world in this book. It ended up being more suspense than paranormal. It was good, but it could have been wonderful with a deeper immersion on the paranormal side of things.
The plot is good, and I think this is a very promising new series. Characters are really great, and there are several secondary characters that could be explore in a future book. The passionate scenes were HOT HOT HOT and there are lots of them. But the end, ah the end, really threw me for a loop and have me lowering my rating. I won’t say much about it, but to say I didn’t agree with Mac’s choices and I’ve hated her for a few minutes too much at the end.
You MAY read this book because you love werewolves; you SHOULD read this book if you like to get hot and bother from all the steamy scenes of a book; but you MUST read this book if you are into hot, dangerous alpha males that can become a bit furry!
