He’s in trouble with a capital T…

There’s never been a female on the Dallas SWAT team and Senior Corporal Xander Riggs prefers it that way. The elite pack of alpha male wolfshifters is no place for a woman. But Khaki Blake is no ordinary woman.

When Khaki walks through the door attractive as hell and smelling like heaven, Xander doesn’t know what the heck to do. Worse, she’s put under his command and Xander’s protective instincts go on high alert. When things start heating up both on and off the clock, it’s almost impossible to keep their heads in the game and their hands off each other…

I really enjoy it when I find a book that has a new twist on werewolf physiology and a unique situation to showcase it. That’s what Wolf Trouble did for me and I fell in love with the genre all over again.

Ms. Tyler’s interpretation is clever, interesting and vastly intriguing. It’s like all of us could have hidden werewolf DNA, it just needs to be triggered. And the catalyst is on par with what romantic suspense stories are known for. What an amazing concept.

Once Xander and Khaki meet, life sure got interesting for both of them. I liked how the author presented the heroine in the first chapter. It was a pivotal moment in her life that led her to a new beginning. I also liked that the hero was so out of his element with Khaki that he simply couldn’t seem to do anything right. Because they had certain roles and responsibilities in their job description, they both tried to act like nothing was wrong and assumed the opposite about each other than what the truth was. Denial makes people do strange and crazy things so it was entertaining watching them dance oh, so carefully around their attraction. It wasn’t until they were shocked by what their noses scented, and upon realizing what it meant that they finally took a chance on sharing their true feelings. That’s when things really heated up and the fun began. It was like watching two kids in cahoots trying to pull a fast one on the adults in charge. It doesn’t work for long and I really enjoyed the whole process.

In the background is a crime spree that the SWAT team was asked to assist the FBI with. That provided the book with many a suspenseful and dramatic moment and I had a hard time putting the book down, even for something as necessary as eating. What I never expected was the loose cannon thrown into the mix. The result of which is a chapter that brought things to head. It was full of action, emotion, fast paced dialogue and a really exciting wrap up. Best of all was an HEA for a different kind of canine.

When Xander and Khaki succumb to their wolfie passions, it was fun and fascinating. The physical romance scenes were well placed throughout the book and even introduced some great moments of blushing and close calls. I enjoyed myself.

Best of all were all the yummy secondary characters. If all the guys end up finding their ONE, and are as well written asWolf Trouble, then I believe I have a lot more awesome romance books to look forward to. I loved the action, the romance, the intrigue, the meaty plot and my absolute favorite funny part in the whole book, the yoga scene. I giggled through the whole event. I enjoyed Ms. Tyler’s storytelling voice and her world building for these amazing heroes. I highly recommend Wolf Trouble to paranormal romance fans, or even fans of romantic suspense. This novel has a lot to offer both groups and I’m thrilled I read it.
