Book Review: Hungry Like the Wolf (SWAT) by Paige Tyler

Hungry Like the Wolf by Paige Tyler is the first book in the SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team series. The Dallas SWAT team is hiding a huge secret, they're a pack of wolf shifters. this is why they are such a tight group, and part of why they are so good at their job. They are so good that investigative journalist Mackenzie Stone thinks something newsworthy is going on with the team. She knows that they are hiding something and she's determined to find out what. Keeping Mac at a distance proves impossible for SWAT team commander Gage Dixon. She's smart, sexy, and makes him feel alive for the first time in years. But she's getting dangerously close to the truth,and perilously close to him. Can Gage trust an investigative reporter with a secret this big even if she has claim to his heart?

Hungry Like the Wolf is a good start to a series that promises a nice blend of paranormal romance or urban fantasy with suspense. I am a reader that is very into characters, a great plot is all well and good, but I need character growth and a solid connection with them to really get sucked into a story. This hit the mark with the plot and the characters. Gage is an ultimate alpha, the leader of a pack of fellow alpha wolves. He has scars from his past, but continues to do everything he can to protect his team as well as the innocent. Mac is a strong willed and intelligent woman that is used to having to work hard. She is not afraid to get her hands dirty, and often forgets to look ahead before putting herself in danger while in pursuit of a story. Together the pair have instant chemistry and each have to balance their desire, their goals, and the notion that they are trying to control the relationship at least to a certain degree. I like that parks of the story had me on edge until the end, and I was left eager to see what happens next to the characters of the series, but not feeling like I was left hanging.

I was very happy with Hungry Like the Wolf and look forward to reading the rest of the series. The next two books will be Wolf Trouble and In the Company of Wolves. There is solid character development, and a nice set up to have me interested in who finds love next.
