SHE BRINGS OUT THE WOLF IN HIM
Lacey Barton can't deny her crazy attraction to Alex Trevino, but that doesn't mean she has time for the gorgeous SWAT officer. She's hell-bent on
discovering who's behind the brutal dogfights sending countless mauled animals to her veterinarian office. The trail leads Lacey to a ring of vicious drug
dealers and suddenly she's in way over her head-right smack in the middle of a SWAT stakeout.
With Lacey in danger, Alex's wolf side is unleashed. But when she witnesses Alex shift, she's even more terrified... Now it's up to Alex to crack the case and earn back Lacey's trust and, ultimately, her heart.
The book was fast-paced from start to finish. I loved Alex. He’s strong, patient and when he realized Lacey was The One for him, I loved watching him romance the reluctant veterinarian. Alex is totally swoon-worthy and he has this quiet calm about him that had me totally falling for the sexy wolf.
Remy was also very prominent in the story. This Cajun-drawling, heartbreaker charmed his way quickly into my heart as well as every other female in the book…except the tough-as-nails medical examiner. Interesting story there, or maybe she has eyes for another SWAT member. I can’t wait to find out!
I really liked Lacey. She and her sister Kelsey have been on their own since they were very young. Lacey being much older. Lacey also has this incredible passion for animals—especially dogs—and volunteers a lot of her time at animal shelters and the animal cruelty unit of the police force. She’s just an absolute sweetheart—but no pushover—and thought she and Alex paired beautifully together.
And of course, we can’t have a SWAT book without a sexy, half-naked werewolves’ volleyball scene. Every time I read them I always picture that scene in Top Gun where Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer are playing volleyball shirtless. We must have a scene like this in the next book trailer!
WOLF UNLEASHED is an exciting, dangerous thriller with lots of action, suspense, and steamy passion! I highly recommend the SWAT series to every reader who enjoys all of the above. Did I mention the half-naked volleyball scene? A brilliant installment to the series!
