Blurb: HE’S FOUND THE ONE…
SWAT officer Landry Cooper is certain Everly Danu is The One. The problem is, she has no idea what Cooper really is. And as much as he wants to trust her, he’s not sure he can share his deepest secret…
When Everly’s family discovers Cooper’s a werewolf, her brothers will do anything to keep them apart-they’ll kill him if they have to. Everly is falling hard for the ridiculously handsome SWAT officer, and she’s not about to let her brothers tell her who she can love… Until Cooper’s secret is exposed and she discovers the man she thought she knew is a monster in disguise.
BUT CAN HE KEEP HER?
Review: To Love a Wolf is the fourth book in Paige Tyler’s SWAT (Special Wolf Alpha Team) series – featuring EOD/IED specialist Landry Cooper. It can be read as stand-alone, although I recommend you to try the previous books, just to be around the gorgeous Alpha team of wolves *laugh*.
Considering that this series has a theme of Soul-Mate or The One, it relies very heavily on insta-love between the hero and heroine, where they fall in love with one another within span of days. However, what makes it work is that Paige Tyler also brings different ‘problems’ in between the romance. It somehow dilutes the insta-love effect.
In this case, it also helps that Cooper and Everly have a very strong sexual chemistry! From the moment they exchange conversation at the bank where they first meet, the sparks between them just sizzle. It’s easy to believe in these two – and the relationship feels natural, like I know that they are just meant to be. Disregarding the fast process of falling in love, it just works.
I loved Cooper so much – he is the person in SWAT team that everyone turns to when they have problems, he’s observant, loyal, and just wonderful. I also loved Everly for being strong-headed and willing to stand up to her family when needed. I loved them together, their banter is fun. I LOVED when Cooper brought Everly to the ‘best date ever’ one night and then taught her to rappel the next.
It doesn’t mean that it’s an easy road to true love for the two, though. Cooper’s secret identity (of being a werewolf) ends up driving a wedge between them and Everly’s family, which has a strong reason why they want to keep her away from Cooper. This brings a different kind of emotional turbulence to the relationship, and it was SO GOOD.
On top of that, there is also a case that Cooper is involved with, as he helps FBI division to find the bomber who killed a Dallas PD cop. I had to admit that during the climax, some of Landry’s words to Everly just made me all teary-eyed. Such a sap I am *laugh*.
It’s another enjoyable installment of the series. I am definitely in for the next book – and I wonder who the hero will be next.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
