A SAHM that reads and reviews romance (all sub genres of romance), Urban Fantasy & Sci-Fi, sometimes Horror, and YA (some sub genres of it).
I've been reading since I was my oldest daughter's age….thanks to R.L. Stine & Christopher Pike…and later on thanks to Anne Rice. Those 3 authors changed my life and I have been obsessed with reading ever since.
The minute I knew Paige Tyler was writing a story about werewolves in a SWAT team, I was all onboard to read Hungry Like the Wolf. I love reading about werewolves and police/SWAT PNR stories. I finished reading this book within a day and a half. Although, I did have to hide from my family, so they would stop interrupting me. It's kind of difficult to get any reading in when it's Winter Break, and this mama works full-time. I was determined to finish this book though in a reasonable time. Dang it!
Hungry Like the Wolf ended up being the first book I finished in 2015. =) I had a hard time putting it down.
Paige sets up the first book in the SWAT series perfectly by introducing ALL the SWAT members. There's a total of 16 SWAT members. (I wrote them ALL down in a notebook, so I could keep up with them and pick my favorites) =) Yup…I'm one of those who takes notes.
The main two characters who are going to take center stage in this book are Gage Dixon and Mackenzie Stone. Gage Dixon is the sexy alpha team leader of the SWAT team, and Mackenzie is the nosy Investigative Journalist from the Dallas Daily Star. At first I was a little weary about reading a book with a journalist in it. The journalist is the one that tends to get themselves in sticky situations and can be very annoying. Yes, Mackenzie gets herself in those messes and she was annoying, but I liked her personality. Gage also knew how to handle the annoying journalist (at times). I enjoyed every bit of these two keeping their cool with each other. Let's just say there's a lot of tension and instant love with these two.
Gage is not only the team leader though of SWAT, he is also the pack leader of some very sexy, strong, determined alpha werewolves. (I have no idea how Mackenzie could handle being around all that testosterone) Gage is determined to keep their secret from the public about what and who the SWAT really is, but Mackenzie is determined to find out the truth. She thinks they are crooked, but if only she really knew.
Gage and his pack are going to deal with not only keeping their secret under the wraps, but they have to deal with one of the biggest criminals ever in Dallas in this book. It's never a dull moment with the Special Wolf Alpha Team.
I could go on and on, but I don't want to give away anything.
I will say this towards the end, I got ticked with Mackenzie and how she handled a certain situation. Her instinct changed though, so she won me over again, but I about went through the book to slap her. Grrr!
There is quite a few moments of romance, action, and tension in this book. Lots more tension than anything with Gage and Mackenzie trying to resist each other.
I give this book 4.5 moons and recommend it to readers of the PNR genre. I really enjoyed reading the first book to the SWAT series and look forward to reading more about these sexy SWAT werewolves.
