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...




Barnes & Noble




Hungry Like the Wolf is book one in the SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team series by Paige Tyler. We are introduced to several dreamy hunky alpha wolves; who make up the Dallas SWAT team.


Action, suspense, and romance.


Hungry Like the Wolf starts off slow, picks up, slows down, and picks up again. I wasn’t overly impressed or drawn into the world and story. The world building wasn’t bad, but we just don’t get much on the world building until later, much later, in the story when we have a mini-info dump. I did like the concept of Ms. Tyler’s werewolves. I found it intriguing how they became werewolves. It’s not the norm that we typically see with a bite, a curse, or born as a werewolf. I appalled the different take on werewolves.


As for the characters: We are introduced to a lot of sexy SWAT guys. Their is no shortage of dreamy men to think about especially when they are half naked. I enjoyed all the SWAT guys introduced. Then their’s Mackenzie the reporter. I’m not a fan of reports. I just have a hard time with them and Mac was no different. She was an ok character. I didn’t hate her, but I didn’t like her either. I was indifferent. I will say their was one part in the story that really made me not care for Mac. At this point she’s gotten to know the SWAT team and they are friends in a way, so when she puts her career above everything else and don’t give a dame about who it will hurt or how it will effect lives I wanted to throttle her and I felt so sorry for Gage. Last, our sexy wolf SWAT leader Gage. I loved him. He has a great head on his shoulders and a protective streak that is enduring. I like how he’s put his team/pack/family together and cares for them.


We are treated to a little action/suspense with a crime lord after Gage and the SWAT team. This adds a little danger to the story along with Mac and Gage’s romance. Their were the classic cliches and tropes during the storyline, so no big surprises in the story.


Narration: This is my first experience with Abby Craden’s and I enjoyed her narration of Hungry Like the Wolf. She did a good job. I liked her voices and I could disguise; between all the male characters. That distinction made them stand out, be individuals, and become more real.


Hunger Like the Wolf takes the safe road, the characters are interesting enough, and the sex is steamy. It didn’t overly impress me, but it was still a pleasure and a satisfying listen.


Rated: 3 Stars

Cover Reveal - Searching For His Mate



Searching For His Mate

by Ariel Marie

Cover Reveal


For Stacia Sagona, it wasn’t easy being the personal assistant to the local bear clan alpha. He was grumpy, hard to work with and he just happened to be her older brother. Tardiness was a pet peeve of his but it was her specialty. What was meant to be a quick run to the bank before going into the office was anything but, thanks to the armed men who stormed into the bank with guns blazing.


A hostage situation at the local bank was just what SWAT Officer Izek Compano needed to keep his mind focused. Lately, he has felt such a disconnect from his bear that it has left him puzzled. A man should always be in sync with his bear. Each night his bear would demand to be let out so it could roam for hours in search of something. For what? Izek didn’t have a clue. The bank job revealed the culmination of his search, only to have her snatched from his grasp.


It’s a race against time to save the mate who his bear had apparently been searching for…

Center Mass (Code 11-KPD SWAT, #1) by Lani Lynn Vale Review
Center Mass (Code 11- KPD SWAT) (Volume 1) - Lani Lynn Vale

Luke Roberts came to the small lazy town of Kilgore, Texas with one thing on his mind: Forgetting. He wanted to forget why he left. Forget those emerald green eyes that haunted his dreams. And forget how it felt to have his heart ripped out of his chest by a woman who didn’t like the fact that he had a child. It was something he’d been doing a damn fine job of doing, too. Until Reese smashed through every one of his defenses, and made him feel again.

Reese Doherty was just trying to do the best for her little girl. So she moved to the little boomtown nearly an hour from where she grew up to be the school nurse for Kilgore’s littlest people. That’s where she met him. The SWAT officer and the man that would change her life forever. The sexy man who liked to drive fast, and live life like it should be lived. He drove her crazy, and became something she could barely live without.

But Luke was a hero. A man used to risking his life to make the world a safer place. Something Reese had to decide whether she could handle or not. Preferably before her and her daughter became too attached.

Just when she’s ready to give him her whole heart, her world takes a huge hit, and everything she thought she knew wasn’t as it seemed.

Luke wasn’t a quitter, though. Damn far from it, and he’d prove to her that he’d be there when the dust settled. Whether she wanted him to be or not.






I was looking forward to this book after meeting the heroine in the Dixie Wardens MC Series and seen the hero as well.


At first, it was good. We have a cute meet of the heroine treating the hero's daughter for an allergic reaction to a big sting. She is a nurse at the school He is a cop.


Then, they run into each other again like you do in a small town.


Then, she sort of just falls into bed with him without a lot of talking or dating. I like dating. I miss dating in books.


Then, things go nuts with all sorts of conflicts and side plots and twists until I am just tired.


There are also little asides that seem to be political positioning on police shootings an gun rights. I don't mind books exploring political issues but this felt heavy handed and awkward without nuance or careful reflection. These moments also were dead end plot alleys that killed the pacing of what was already a very hard to follow set of sub plots.


So, yeah. Not a good read for me.

Great Story and Characters
Wolf Unleashed (SWAT) - Paige Tyler Alex and Remy were werewolves but also SWAT officers. Remy, Max, Alex, and Jayden were all werewolves - the whole SWAt team was- working with Sergeant Rodriguez of the Dallas Police narcotics division for nearly three weeks trying to catch the dealers selling a new designer drug called fireball. Fireball had killed eight people in the last month. Fireball was very addicting. Gage was the alpha of their werewolf pack and quickly agreed to help to help Sergeant Rodriguez. Alex and the rest of the swat team had adopted a pit mix dog they had rescued who had required a lot to be brought back to good health. Tuffie had been used as a fighting dog in dog fights and had barely survived when a man who died trying to protect her. So the Swat team all took care of her, There was a new vet - Lacey Barton - today when Alex took Tuffie for her checkup. Alex was quite taken with her. Alex could not remember ever having such a strong and immediate reaction to a woman he had just met Alex had went through the change three years ago he would have died otherwise Kelsey was Lacey’s sister and they shared an apartment. Lacey had basically raised Kelsey since Lacey was twelve. Kelsey was studying to be a nurse. Lacey had never been in a long term relationship because she simply didn’t trust men. Alex was a serious man at heart but Lacey made him happy and Alex smiled more now. Alex asked Lacey out but she always politely declined. Then he showed up and volunteered with Lacey and she told Alex he would go out with him. Lacey and Alex had fun on their dates. Lacey told Alex how she had seen her mother commit suicide. Kelsey was ten when their mother died Alec and the team had caught some dealers who sold fireball. But there was an incident at the college and it involved fireball so there was other dealers out there. Also there were hunters out there they killed werewolves. Alec and Lacey were at a small club when Alex spotted two werewolves on the stage.Alex went up to talk to them. They explained they moved to Dallas to be safe with their family. They were running from hunters who were stepping up their game to find and kill werewolves. Lacey wondered why Alex had been single o long as she thought he was perfect. Then Lacey gets herself in trouble and as Alex rescues her Lacey sees Alex change and thinks he is a monster and won’t let him explain. I loved this story , It made me sad that Alex and Lacey both had to hurt so bad until Kelsey came up missing and she asked Alex for help and she started to accept who and what he was. I also loved the fact Alec and his brother werewolves were right there to help her about her sister no matter how she felt. Even if Alex and the other Swat team got in trouble they were determined to find Kelsey. I didn’t want to put this book down it kept attention from beginning to end. I just loved it one of my new favorite books. I loved the plot and the characters. I loved the ins and outs of the story and I highly recommend.

Review - Wolf Unleashed by Paige Tyler (SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team #5)
Wolf Unleashed (SWAT) - Paige Tyler

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!


The cover is a work of art!


This is the 5th book in the series, but the first one I’ve read.  I’m doing this backwards because I own all of the other books.  I’m definitely going to go back and read these maybe during Christmas break.  This book is for adults only due to the steamy scenes.


Lacey is a veterinarian who has trust issues with men.  Alex is definitely an Alpha, but he has a sweet side that shows often.  Lots of bad things happening around town drugs, dog fighting, and missing girls.  This book is action packed!  I loved every moment of reading it and can’t wait to read the rest of them.


Paige’s words bring the story to life in my mind as I’m reading.  I highly recommend if you love shifters and Alpha men who come to the rescue, then you definitely want to read this book and probably the whole series!
