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…
*Blurb from Goodreads*

I really enjoy Tyler’s books, and each new release seems to be just as great as the last. While her X-Ops series is a favorite of mine, the SWAT series is quickly becoming a great PNR series that I’m highly addicted to!

Xander isn’t keen on the idea of adding a female werewolf to the SWAT team, but he and the team isn’t given a choice. Khaki isn’t anything Xander expected, especially as her scent gets into his nose and drives him wild.

Khaki doesn’t know the first thing about being a werewolf, and her attraction to Xander makes it difficult for her to reach out to her team leader. But when she realizes that without Xander’s help, she won’t be able to fully function on the team, the two will build a special bond that not only helps them during the working hours, but also brings them closer off the clock.

I loved the addition of a female werewolf to the SWAT team. They needed a lady around to kick their asses a bit, and Khaki did not pull her punches. I loved that she was able to discover her own set of unique skills, and find the best possible ways to apply that to her team. She wasn’t a delicate flower, and she worked hard to prove that to the guys day in and day out. I adored that about her so much!!

There were a few times when Xander acted like a huge ass, and while I understood where he was coming from, poor Khaki didn’t and she got to deal with the brunt end of his anger and confusion. I’m not a huge fan of storylines that deal with miscommunication, but I liked the way Tyler dealt with it here. Both Xander and Khaki had some missteps (Xander more so, of course!), but they also had their friends around them telling them when they were screwing up, and when they needed to make things clear. It worked for me within the story, and I wasn’t angry that those miscommunications were used as a way to keep these two apart for so long.

I really am digging this series and it’s vast array of characters. There are times I have trouble keeping up with the huge cast of SWAT members, but I do adore them. They are all Alpha to the core, and each one has such a vibrant personality. I’m anxious to see where Tyler goes with the series, and how she’ll find mates for each of these heroes.

All in all, I’m finding Tyler has become a new go-to favorite in the paranormal genre! Her heroes are Alpha to the core and protective without crossing the line (too far, at least!). Her heroines are strong and secure and still uniquely feminine in a way that has been rooting for them from start to finish. I thought Xander and Khaki had a wonderful romance, and I can’t wait to see more of them in future books!
I give Wolf Trouble a B+
