Title:  Rogue Wolf
Series:  SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team #12
Author:  Paige Tyler
Genre:  Paranormal/Shifter Romantic Suspense
Published:  August 31, 2021
Publisher:  Sourcebooks Casablanca
My Rating:  4.5 stars

I have loved the SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team series, and in my opinion, it’s only gotten better over the years in this world.  Rogue Wolf is a perfect example of what I mean.  Trey and Samantha are so right for each other, they fit, and they blend together in a way that put me in their corner from the very start.  I loved the way that Samantha called Trey out on his favor by asking for a dinner date – at least one of them is starting to make a move toward what they both want… each other.

Samantha is a very strong woman, stubborn at times, but she’s also compassionate, realistic, and perfect for one man who is hiding in plain sight.  Trey is an Alpha wolf, yes, but he’s also unafraid to show his doubts, to second guess himself, and even to put off declaring his attraction to Samantha for far too long because of those doubts.  He’s fierce in battle, but a gentle wolf with his woman.  It might have taken him a bit to realize that Samantha was his “one”, but he’s not about to let her go either.

They each have secrets, things that they will need to expose to the light and trust that who they are in spite of those secrets will be accepted and loved.  Plus, there are some nasty villains around who neither has dealt with before and lives will be on the line as situations intensify.

Rogue Wolf was everything I’d hoped for and more.  The writing is smooth, the plot intricate and compelling, and the characters leap off of the page as believable in their given situations.  We get a glimpse of what may come in new stories and a few subtle hints that have me wishing for the next book right now.  There are unseen twists, a few turns, a great supporting cast, and a couple that deserves their happy ending.  Steamy moments, laughter, tensions, secrets, and danger – everything I expect from this series.  If you haven’t been introduced to this world then I’d highly recommend that you get started.  Could you read Rogue Wolf on its own?  You could, but then you’d also miss the history of some of the characters you’ll run into.  If you can, then I say to start from the beginning – but if you cannot, then enjoy Trey and Samantha, I’m pretty sure you’ll want to go back for the rest once you’ve entered their world.

*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
