Title:  The Best of Both Wolves
Series:  Red Wolf #2
Author:  Terry Spear
Genre:  Paranormal Romance, Shifter Romance
Published:  January 25, 2022
Publisher:  Sourcebooks Casablanca
My Rating:  4.5 stars

The Best of Both Wolves continues the Red Wolf series with a fun, sexy, and dangerous romance between Sierra, who is retired from the military and a new art teacher for the pack’s school, and Adam, a police detective, and all-around sexy, good guy.  I always have a good time with any of the connecting series/stories of the Heart of the Wolf series, and this one was definitely a fun time for me.

Although Sierra was planning on teaching art at the school, one break-in at her hotel has her taking on an additional assignment as a temporary police sketch artist as she defines who the thief is with her artistic talent.  But this, of course, makes her a target of other crimes as their story moves on.  Although Sierra and Adam may have had a strong attraction to start off with, they also felt more like a friends-to-lovers or slow-burn romance which I appreciated.  We’ll get to meet several folks, some we know from the first book and others who are new to us as the secondary characters help this one leap off of the page.  There is danger, laughter, frustration, and steamy moments… and eventually, the bad guys will be caught, but not without a few twists along the way.

I had fun in this world again and now comes the wait for the next installment in the Red Wolf series.  The writing is smooth, the plot interesting, the main couple engaging, and the secondary characters add to the story.  In all, The Best of Both Wolves is a story that drew me in and kept me entertained throughout.  If you love a good, solid paranormal or shifter romance with interesting characters and situations then you’ll want to add to your collection with Sierra and Adam’s story.
