Quote-tastic/Review-- Wolf Unleashed (SWAT #5) by Paige Tyler

This is one of the few paranormal series I read these days and Oh I love it! A whole SWAT team of alpha werewolves. Noms! Great romance and fun characters plus some nice suspense. This time one of the guys and the vet who takes care of the team's dog. Love that!

Two quotes today. There were a handful of pets in this one and this one just cracked me up and gave me a giggle over the heroine and her naming.


After a few seconds, the dog must have decided he was worth checking out, because he padded over and took a few extra sniffs, then licked Alex's hand.

"This is Leonardo," Lacey said, crouching down beside him. The move made her dress slide up a few more inches higher, revealing even more leg.

"After the artist?"

Alex was surprised. Lacey struck him as more traditional when it came to dog names. He'd expected something more along the lines of Spot or Fido.

"No," she said. "After the turtle."
And then this one. This is the first time Alex had met Lacey. He'd taken Tuffie (the team's rescued pit bull) into the vet for a check up...
Reaching down, Alex gently picked up Tuffie and set her on the stainless steel exam table.

"Nice muscle tone," Lacey murmured.

Alex felt the compliment go right to his head. "Thanks."

"Actually, I was talking about Tuffie," Lacey said as she tenderly ran her hands over the dog's shoulders.

"Oh."

She looked up at him from beneath her ashes. "But yours is pretty good, too."

A Wolf Unleashed (SWAT #5)

Ooo alpha werewolf with a soft spot for animals? Yes, please! Wolf Unleashed was an action packed adventure with a nice side of romance, one seriously lickable hero, and a whole crew backing him up. 

I'm going to talk about the suspense side first. This one will not be for everyone. It's a hard topic of dog fighting and has some very ugly moments. The heroine is a vet and often deals with the aftermath and trying to help the dogs found which could be heartbreaking. That said, there's a lot of action in this one coming from a couple fronts. The dog fighting and trying to figure out how to stop them, a drug case the SWAT guys are working, girls disappearing from one of the local colleges. While it didn't all seem connected it was interesting seeing things piece together and everyone doing their jobs. Danger, action, yeah, it kept things moving at a nice pace and had my palms sweating a couple times.

Now, the romance. Alex and Lacey. What I loved about them was how much they both cared for animals. If they could help one in need they would. And that made me love both of them. Alex has a good bit of sexy alpha in him. He's dependable and so the type of man you want in your corner. And Lacey has a lot of heart but is seriously gun shy and in need of a soft touch. I did have a couple heroine issues--she had a couple seriously TSTL moments and handled Alex's secret really badly but she did at least realize her mistakes eventually and knew she'd been wrong. For some I think she'll be too much. For me I was able to deal since I was enjoying the rest of the book so much. They were good together and had some nice chemistry, a little heat and passion. Yeah, they were working for me. I love seeing people with good hearts that may be damaged just a little bit find the person to help them heal and feel complete.

All in all, a solid addition to the SWAT series. I really can't get enough of these guys and all their sexy, cheeky swagger. 

Wolf shifter Alex Trevino has fallen hard for veterinarian Lacey Barton. Getting her to agree to a date is a lot of work—and winning her heart proves even harder.

Lacey can’t deny her crazy attraction to Alex, but she has no intention of letting herself fall for him. In her less than stellar experience, men don’t stick around.

When Lacey’s sister is kidnapped, it’s up to Alex to crack the case—and prove to Lacey that he isn’t going anywhere.
