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?
To Love a Wolf is the fourth book to Paige Tyler’s SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team series. This time it’s Cooper’s time to find ‘The One.’ He doesn’t believe in finding his one true mate, though, until he meets her at the bank. I couldn’t wait to find out which lucky lady was going to steal Cooper’s heart.
Female Protagonist: Everly Danu is an Artist. I consider her a damsel in distress since she gets caught up in some dangerous scenarios in this book. Don’t get me wrong, I love books that have damsels in distress, but it seems her family sees her like that, too. Her brothers and father are very protective of her. It makes me think this poor girl will never have a boyfriend. (She does put her foot down when she meets Cooper.)
Male Protagonist: Landry Cooper is a SWAT officer who is a former military. I’ve wanted his book since the last book. He’s one male character that could handle anything, especially what happened to him in the military. He’s an alpha, which is one characteristic I love in male characters in books. He’s also very charming, even when he’s having to deal with a bank robbery when he’s trying to hook up with the beautiful girl in line.
My Thoughts: First, I’m going to state that this is not my favorite in the series (so far) because I have never been a big fan of the Instant Love Trope. I prefer characters that grow together if that makes sense. I have read some books that had an instant attraction, but sometimes it was due to one of the characters falling head over heels and not both characters. It was immediate with Cooper and Everly in this book. I’m also not a fan of Everly. I couldn’t connect with her, especially after she found out the truth about Cooper. She drove me crazy with how she handled the situation with Cooper.
Here are some things I did enjoy about To Love a Wolf:
- Paige Tyler’s storytelling. This book has Cooper investigating someone that is using bombs in Dallas. One of the bombs ends up killing a police officer. He has to find out if there will be more bombs and if the bomber has a target.
- Landry Cooper. I pretty much go over what I love about Cooper in the Male Protagonist section of the review. I fell for him before his book. Paige knows how to write alpha male characters.
- I love werewolves and shapeshifters, and this book includes one of my favorite paranormal creatures. 🙂
Steaminess: Some steam.
Standalone/Part of Series: Part of series, but each can be read as standalone.
Trope: Fated Mates, Instant Love/Attraction
Would I recommend this book? Yes. I recommend this book if you love the Paranormal Romance genre and love the Fated Mates and/or Instant Love Tropes. Overall, this book receives 3.5 stars from me. This book may not be a favorite, but other readers may enjoy it. I still love me some Cooper, though. 🙂 Actually, I love all the sexy werewolves in SWAT. Thanks to Paige Tyler for writing this series and feeding my addiction to werewolves. 🙂
