Wolf shifter and SWAT Officer Max Lowry falls hard for she-wolf Lana Mason, but things spiral out of control when wolf hunters track her down, and Max realizes Lana has no idea who—or what—she really is.

The Delight

Across a crowded room, Max scents something intoxicating and discovers a lovely lady at the end of the trail.  How is it she’s a werewolf like him, but doesn’t seem to know it?  Between the hunters, a domestic violence case, and figuring out how to break the furry news to Lana, Max’s story was one fantastic action and passion-filled ride.

Review

Wolf Hunger is book 7 in the SWAT series about the fabulous SWAT team alpha werewolves who work to fight crime, keep ahead of the merciless werewolf hunters, and find their The Ones.  They are best enjoyed in order particularly because of the ongoing build of the SWAT werewolf world, the development of friendships and the hunter arc, but also because why miss even one of these caliente hot werewolf cops?

Max was an appealing guy from the beginning.  He had a tough past and a new chance to turn his life around which he took and made good.  I loved his every day joe personality who works hard, but doesn’t fight against what is truly good for him.  He had a refreshing attitude about finding that perfect female out there in that he wasn’t a commitophobe nor a denial expert.  He’s tender-hearted, passionate, and just an all-around nice guy who happens to have a to die for body and a fierce set of fangs and claws he employs when necessary.

Lana was also a fabulous character.  She’s sweet, but steady.  She’s new to everything Max throws at her, but her balk is sensible under the circumstances.  She is honest and honest with herself most of all- whew, you do not know how refreshing I find that.  She loves and respects her parents, but stands on her own principles.  Just like she sees what a good thing Max is and doesn’t make it difficult.

The conflict in this story came from the outside of the romance.  Max and Lana discover that the hunters are hot on her trail even before she even knows what she is.  It got intense and exciting.  And oh my, we gets some big revelations and further twists with that storyline.  And man, I got a choked up moment when the ruthlessness of the hunters really hits the SWAT guys and their big werewolf family hard.

All in all, Wolf Hunger left me salivating for more SWAT stories.  The series isn’t just good, but seems to get stronger if possible.  I would point romantic suspense and paranormal romance lovers at these books.

My thanks to Sourcebooks Casablanca for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.
  • RO

    Even though I’m not reading paranormal love these days, I like the idea of the suspense and swat team as the main gist of the story. I always enjoy lots of action and plenty of romance to keep my interest. Hugs…RO

    • Oh yes, the SWAT team action and case work is great. The author’s husband is a police officer so she gets that part just right. I love the wolfy part, too. 🙂

      Have a great day, Ro!

  • I need to start this series. It has everything I love. Romance, suspense and paranormal elements.

    • It really does come with everything included. Hope you get the chance soon, Nadene!

  • I really need to get started with this series. I am pretty sure that I have the first couple ready to go. I love that you are still enjoying it 7 books in. Great review!

    • I think you’d have a good time with them, Carole. They do a good job mixing the suspense and the paranormal romance. She teases out her werewolf culture over several books so that you slowly learn about them.

  • Ugh, another series that I know I would enjoy and should start..lol

    • Yeah, we’ll never get to the point where we’re out of reading options. 😉

  • Gah the Hunters are awful. I’m with ya. Great series.

    • They really are pests that need exterminating. Grr.

  • I’m getting so far behind on this series now that Tantor isn’t doing the audios any more. I need to just go to Audible and buy them.

    • You’re right, now that you mention it, I haven’t seen them offered from Tantor. That’s a bummer.
