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.
After Her Rogue Alpha, from Paige Tyler’s X-OPS series, I was really looking forward to another shot of hunky werewolfs. And with Wolf Unleashed, here there are again. Yay! The story continues with Alex Travino, from Gage’s pack (meet him in Hungry Like the Wolf). When he takes Tuffie, the rescued and adopted dog to the vet for her check-up, he meets dr. Barton. There is an instant attraction between the both of them, but since Lacey has only seen very crappy examples of male species in her past, she can’t believe Alex is for real. He is too cute, too kind and too great to believe.
Since Alex’s sniffer isn’t that good, he doesn’t know for sure if Lacey is ‘The One’ for him, as MacKenzie is for Gage and Everly for Cooper (in To Love a Wolf). Since most of his teammates are also looking forward to meeting their ‘The One’, this is a hot topic among them: “You think she’s The One for him?” Alex asked, trying to picture the huge dark-skinned alpha werewolf with the attractive but rough-around-the-edges narcotics officer. Remy shrugged. “Maybe, but if not, there’s nothing wrong with her being The-One-for-right-Now.”
So Alex tries to convince Lacey, that he is the One-for-right-now. During their dates, Alex discovers why Lacey keeps man at bay, although her sister Kelsey tries to convince her otherwise. And Lacey keeps getting to know Alex better and secretly she gets her hopes up, that maybe, just maybe, he’s not too good to be true.
But during a reckless action of Lacey to find out who is behind the horrible dogfights, she nearly gets hurt and Alex’s wolf comes out to rescue her. Unfortunately, Lacey realizes now that he’s not too good to be true: he is too furry and too scary! Can Alex convince her that a little fur and some fangs are not the end of the world? And that real monsters don’t always look so scary?
I would recommend you read this book to find out if a vet can be convinced that a wolf has feelings to. Four out of five stars for Paige. I’m already looking forward to part 6, Wolf Hunt. With thanks to Casablanca Books and Netgalley for this arc.
