Rogue Wolf: A Pulse-pounding Wolf Shifter Romance (SWAT Book 12) Kindle Edition
"I quite like the idea of being able to take your breath away."
Samantha realized then that she was in trouble. There genuinely was something about this man that took her breath away. It both scared and thrilled her at the same time.
"Then kiss me and see if it happens again," she whispered.
There's a wicked attraction between Special Wolf Alpha Team (SWAT) werewolf Trey Duncan and medical examiner Samantha Mills, but Trey's never worked up the nerve to ask her out until now. But the trouble with wolves is that they're never far from danger, and this time Trey is going up against a monster the likes of which his Dallas SWAT team has never seen... It's going to take everything Trey and Samantha have to crack the case and protect each other.

Paige Tyler is a new-to-me author that I am absolutely going to pick up again; and despite not having any previous knowledge of this series, I found it so easy to follow along and became completely engaged in the characters lives and the mystery of the serial killer on the loose.
There was a level of nostalgia and comfort in this book that I find hard to explain but I felt nevertheless. It's a book and a series that I would very easily pick up again and again.
The hero, Trey, is the perfect blend of alpha male and cinnamon roll. He's so ridiculously sweet but also can be tough and take charge when he needs to. The heroine, Samantha, was a smart cookie and could hold her own when it comes to flirting with a certain cute, secret werewolf, or extracting info from the baddie. And the overall story? Crazy -- in a very entertaining way!
There is a lot going on in this fictional world that I wasn't expecting (possibly because it's the twelfth book in the series and the first book I've read) but I look forward to going back to the beginning of the series and working my way through the rest! Personally, I think Rogue Wolf can be read as a standalone as I don't feel like I missed anything too important by starting later in the series and all of the necessary side characters and information is explained well. But I am actually excited to go back to book one and meet all the side characters in order!

But that last third of the book… Oy!
If you read this review beyond this point, you will know about the ending and other things that “go bump in the night.”
First, I was happy with the story line about the two main characters dancing around each other for two years in a sort of weird werewolf foreplay, but this story devolved into a combination of errors. And, no, that is not a misspelling of comedy. It wasn’t funny. At all. In any way.
The other thing I really liked was the dialog between characters. The conversations were always engaging, always realistic and most of the time, they forward the story.
Oh, please! Too many monsters!
Sure, you can have as many supes (supernaturals) as you want in a story, but my big, B-I-G, huge, massive question to the author is:
Why did the uber rich “butcher” doctor NOT have a fire suppression system — a.k.a. fire sprinklers — in his monster-making lab basement where there were nasty chemicals and flammable liquids???
And… Wasn’t a perceived death enough drama? Did it have to go up another notch on the ridiculous chain?
Wasn’t having both the mad Frankenstein-doctor and a life-sucking vampire too much already?
By the time I hit the beginning of the end, — Chapter 16 of 25 — I was yelling at the book. Too many “I should haves” and whining about unanswered secrets and a major case of indecisiveness… plus not enough “Let’s get ‘er done!”
If this ME Assistant was so smart according to Trey, and everything up until Chapter 12 says she was, then why didn’t Trey realize she was close to finding out about him and his pack-mates and just tell her already! He had TWO YEARS to see where his pack-mates messed up… some alpha werewolf he is.
Cheez-Whiz, people! Let “The Fonz” rest already! No more “jumping the shark” please.
The story was fine up to that point (Chapter 13) and could have benefitted from a full blown romance before the crazy doctor made it known he was raising the dead… then all the really lame drama preceding the kidnappings, half-assed dialog during the hostage situation, the extra life-sucking monster in the mix, the a-hole “Igor” assistant and the lack of forensic evidence would have pointed to Dexter… I mean the ME. Samey-samey.
Cutting out that much verbiage would have saved a couple of chapters, as well.
I know writing a novel cannot be easy. Making one filled with intrigue — and monsters — is probably doubly hard. But I am seriously rethinking my dedication to this series, which up until this book, was pretty high.
I like the super-protective Alpha wolves. I like SOME of the “strange” happenings in Dallas. I like the stubborn notion that romantic love can’t happen in three days. But, the outlandish additions (Frankenstein? Really?) are not needed. Everyday life can be just as intriguing as the supernatural. The first three books are my favorites BECAUSE they are more inline with the “real” world.
Dear author, can’t you please put more everyday romance with hunky alpha males (and less supernatural suck-heads) in your next stories?
I wasn’t that happy with the new STAT series… I am not a fan of vampires anymore… since the Twilight “sparkle, sparkle”. I grew up reading “The Vampire Lestat”, Dracula, watching Dracula and vampire movies, but, yeah, hmm, Twilight. Not.
I hope your next novel in the series — will there be one? — will be more “down to earth.”
SWAT (Special Wolf Alpha Team) series book 12. Paranormal wolf shifter romantic suspense. Can be read as a stand-alone but better as part of the series.
Medical Examiner Samantha Mills has suspected there is more to the Dallas SWAT than just being good at their jobs. Their claims of coyotes and other strange coincidences don’t add up. SWAT member Trey Duncan knows he needs to keep his werewolf self hidden from Samantha, but what if she is his soul mate? The One?
A rollicking adventure from start to finish. Plenty of humor in the beginning leads to peril and a fight to survive a mad man. Parts are touching. Much is riveting. The full is a romping good paranormal romance. Heat mid level.
A bit of a cliffhanger leading to the next series, but Samantha and Trey’s story is complete with a couple of nice humanitarian touches thrown in.
I love this SWAT series and can’t wait for the next in the series.
I received a copy of this from NetGalley. I also purchased a copy to share.
Excerpts to introduce Samantha and Trey:
“Dude, she deals with dead bodies every day, so you’re going to need to come up with another excuse. You’re a werewolf, not a werechicken. Just ask her to go out to dinner. What’s the worst that could happen?”
“Trey gave her a smile, flashing the most perfect dimples. “We’re hoping you might be able to tell us a little about the case.”
Samantha had to fight the urge to return his smile. D[…], when Trey put on the charm, it was scary how badly she wanted to walk over there, climb him like a sloth, and start coming up with names for their future children. But she fought off the desire. Besides, she didn’t need to think about names. She had all four of them picked out a few days after meeting the hunky cop. No, she needed to play this cool and use the situation to get what she wanted.”
Excerpts from Rogue Wolf by Paige Tyler.
But about 60% into the book, it got weird. And yucky. I am not going to tell what happened because it will ruin it. Just be warned, this is not exactly one of the normal SWAT books. It seemed as this is a foray into hard core Sci-Fi. And a direction I didn't want to take. Will I buy her next SWAT book - absolutely. Just be warned that this one is strange.
The pace is breakneck and the tone is uncertain yet hopeful with an action oriented storyline that has some steamy scenes. The characters are vibrant and kickass. This story was very intense. If you like action and some strong characters then this series is for you. Enjoy!
