     I couldn't be happier with this story. I've been waiting for Max's story for a long time and I think the author gave him a HEA worthy of each and every single page it was written on.

     The chemistry between Max ans Sera was sizzling and the fact that they had to fight every step of the way to finally have a modicum of peace and that Seraphina's sudden return didn't magically fixed everything and they went back to been together was a big plus too.

     I am freakishly curious about Apollimy and Savitar and am wondering if there will be a HEA or at least a HFN in there.

     There was that OMG scene with Illarion (which I'm glad will be solved in the next book) and the waterworks went into overdrive a bit there at the end which now has me curious about Falcyn.

     I just can't wait for more of this series and the characters we love.

     HEY, who was a time machine? Where is a Were-Hunter when you need one *pouts*

     This was an interesting book, something different for me.

     I was kind of lost at first (I'm more a 2 POV kind of girl) but as I got more into the story all started to explain itself. This was a fun and crazy read with some real life situations.

     There are 4 different stories and they are from different age ranges. I really loved Earl and Catherine's story. It teaches us that real love can find us even if we are old and that not all men are the same like we saw from Earl at the golf game.

     I was really sorry for Don. As he was at the apex of personal problems and he was using homecoming as a temporary getaway from which he was looking to find some happiness.

     As for the others, they made me mad and they made me laugh. I really don't know how I feel about them so I'm not going to bother mentioning them ^_^

Paige Tyler's Wolf Trouble Spotlight

Buy on:


     He’s in trouble with a capital T

     There’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…

     Paige Tyler’s sexy, action-packed SWAT series is back this August with the release of Wolf Trouble! To celebrate this latest release, Corporal Xander Riggs has agreed to sit down for a Q&A with us:

     Do you have any role models? If so, who?

     My Pack Alpha and boss, Gage Dixon. He could have gone off and been a lone wolf when he turned, but instead he found us and taught us how to be a pack.


     Xander had to pick his jaw up off the floor of the training room when Gage introduced the newest member of the SWAT team. He didn’t know what to expect, but it sure as hell wasn’t Officer Khaki Blake. Tall with an athletic build and just enough curves to fill out the SWAT T-shirt, she had the biggest brown eyes and softest looking lips he’d ever seen. She had her dark hair back in a bun, so he couldn’t tell how long it was, but he’d bet money it fell past her shoulders. She smelled way too good to be believed, too—like a slice of frosted spice cake in a uniform.

     Shit. He was practically panting. If he didn’t get a grip soon, he was going to start drooling.

     He gave the other guys a covert glance to see how they were dealing with her scent and was stunned to see that none of them reacted at all. Why not? His nose wasn’t that much better than theirs. He knew for a fact that several of the other guys—Cooper Landry and Jayden Brooks specifically—could smell a hell of a lot better than he could.

     Maybe everyone was so mesmerized by finally getting to see a female version of their kind that the rest of their senses had stopped working.

     Gage had left it up to Xander to fill the guys in on what had gone down at the meeting with Deputy Chief Mason while he’d headed home to get ready for his trip to Washington State. While the guys had been pissed that the top brass was playing politics with the team, they’d been intrigued at the idea of adding a female werewolf to the Pack.

     They’d bombarded him with dozens of questions, none of which he could answer. Was she as fast and strong as they were? Did her abilities manifest themselves in completely different ways? Would she be as aggressive as they were and able to handle herself in a fight? Were there more like her out there, or was she the only one?

     Not all the questions were so general. Brooks wondered what she would look like, Max Lowry wanted to know if she would smell like them, and Eric Becker… Well, Becker just wanted to know if she liked to wear yoga pants. God, that kid had an obsession with those things.

     Xander had told them what he knew—that no one except Gage knew a damn thing about female werewolves. And Xander wasn’t so sure how much their commander knew, either.

     While Xander was lost in thought, Gage turned the floor over to Khaki, who was currently explaining how much she appreciated the opportunity to be in SWAT.

     “I know I won’t be handed anything, but I look forward to proving to every one of you that I belong in the Pack and on the team.” She spoke in a light, lilting voice that surprisingly filled the large classroom. Xander could definitely pick up the Midwest accent, so she probably wasn’t originally from the Pacific Northwest. “I’m not asking for anything from you but a chance to do prove myself.”

     Oh my, oh mi, what are this hotties doing to me!

     Another great hit on Paige Tyler's SWAT series. What I love about this author's stories is that they grab hold of your insides, your mind, your heart, any part of you it can and makes you want to do something stupid. Like calling sick to work just so you can finish it all in one sitting.

     Just like Gage and Mac's book, Khaki and Xander's story was full of action, team work and lots of sweaty, bare chested, alpha males we love to dream about. Although the story was about how a female wolf was introduced as a member of the team and how that was going to to work for the males in the pack, it was also about how two member of the same team can work together. How they needed to understand what been a cop is really about; putting your live in danger even when that doesn't go well with your mate.

     But it also showed us a little of what each one of the SWAT members have to go though to be as good as they are and what it is for a new wolf to learn of his/her powers.

     With each word read I fell more and more in love with this characters and this author and I can't NOT wait for In The Company of Wolves to see what is next in store for this characters, and of course not to mention the abs, biceps, triceps, shoulders, thighs, as.... you get my meaning.

Rating: 4 Stars

     I liked the story in this book. There is something appealing in threesomes. Specifically, those that focus on the girl's pleasure. Who wouldn't kill to have such attention bestowed upon them?

     I know that we all have different opinions but I would have liked that Zane could have been one of her firsts. If Nate got the first I think Zane should have had the second. But that's just me.

     The chemistry between the three was really good although there were times I wanted to smack Zane and/or Nate. I mean stupid much. Assuming stuff like that without knowing what was running by the others mind. But I guess that's human nature for you.

     Now I'm on to the next and hope Stef isn't so idiotic. (Not holding much faith, he made an ass of himself already and it isn't even his story ^_^)
