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.

 

 

Review

 

 

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!

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

Paige Tyler’s A Wolf Unleashed has become my favorite book in the SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team series.  Wolf shifter Alex Trevino meets veterinarian Lacey Barton when he takes the teams dog, Tuffie, in for appointment.  He is instantly attracted to Lacey but finds that it is a challenge to get her to go out with him.  Then Lacey younger sister, Kelsey, goes missing, and she turns to Alex for help.  This contemporary PNR takes place in Dallas.  It is suitable for adult audiences.

 

I love animals, so I instantly fell in love with both animal loving characters.  Alex is a great guy.  Not only is he SWAT, but he is a licensed paramedic.  He is selfless and brave.  He has had trouble controlling his wolf and could only partially shift.  I like that his wolf evolves in this story. He is creative and comes up with the perfect dates.  I love how canines respond to him, especially Ralph.  Lacey is an admirable heroine.  She is a feisty and courageous.  I appreciate that she helps the Dallas police department’s Animal Cruelty Squad with injured and abused animals.  She is fierce when it comes to protecting animals and the ones she loves.  Lacey doesn’t make it easy on Alex.  However, the two are the perfect couple.

 

I enjoyed the plot.  There were a lot of different components, especially with the criminal cases.  I valued how everything fit together.  I think it is great that the SWAT team, and their significant others are like family.  I like how Paige Tyler always includes a prologue with the accident that causes the main character to turn into a werewolf.  I love Paige Tyler’s SWAT series; A Wolf Unleashed was a perfect addition.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
