He's in trouble with a capital TThere's never been a female on the Dallas SWAT team and Senior Corporal Xander Riggs prefers it that way. The elite pack of alpha male wolfshifters is no place for a woman. But Khaki Blake is no ordinary woman. When Khaki walks through the door attractive as hell and smelling like heaven, Xander doesn't know what the heck to do. Worse, she's put under his command and Xander's protective instincts go on high alert. When things start heating up both on and off the clock, it's almost impossible to keep their heads in the game and their hands off each other...
The first book of the SWAT (Special Wolf Alpha Team) series was fun, but WOLF TROUBLE, featuring two werewolves instead of a werewolf man with a human female, was even better.
The Dallas SWAT has been hand-picked from different law enforcement and military backgrounds, but they all have something in common: they all survived something a normal person wouldn’t, and started sprouting teeth and fur soon afterward. Werewolves in this world are triggered by a life-threatening injury in a person with the right genetic disposition.
Khaki was hit by a shotgun, and still managed to save her victim and get away. After transferring to the Dallas SWAT, zooming through their incredibly tough training, and nailing her first few missions, the only thing she can’t get on top of of is Xander, her commanding officer who smells so damn delicious.
Although I am not a fan of the “fated mate” motif, this author really makes an effort to make the trope work as a reason two people come together, not the reason they stay together. Just because they are pulled together, Xander and Khaki really have to work at their relationship. The result is intensely hot and I loved it.
The only thing that is keeping this book from being perfect are the two massive suspension of disbelief readers have to perform; that the SWAT team would be able to keep their secret while still being effective police officers, and that any parents would name their daughter after a drab army beige colour.
Otherwise, it kicked serious butt and I am anxiously awaiting the next book, In The Company of Wolves, due at the end of this year.
