Hungry Like the Wolf
The team of elite sharpshooters is ultra-secretive—and also the darlings of Dallas. This doesn't sit well with investigative journalist Mackenzie Stone. They must be hiding something . . . and she's determined to find out what.
Keeping Mac at a distance proves impossible for SWAT team co ...more
Nothing starts a new year off right quite like a debut werewolf series, and Paige Tyler brings it with SWAT. There are sixteen alpha males to choose from, so you’re sure to find at least one to drool over, and first in line is their smexy leader, Gage Dixon. HUNGRY LIKE THE WOLF was light on shifter lore, but heavy on scorching romps which makes it the perfect read for Paranormal Romance groupies looking for a bit of danger, and a whole lot of steam. The story was predic ...more
So, this book had a good (a bit stereotypical) Alpha Male, some hot sexy times, a solid world-building and solid writing.
And it had an awful heroine.
You can read below why I hate her (she is stupid, selfish, egotistic, shallow and dishonest. Examples of her musings and behaviours see below.
Another reason to hate her:
(view spoiler)[ So, she decides that she has the serious hots for the hot alpha guy. And when she finds out the big secret of ...more

I had no idea how to rate this book, so I went with 2.5 but a 3 star GR rating.
So, this book wasn't awful. It started out pretty nice, everything went well (for the most part) 'til about 60%, then it got awkward.
Maybe the thing I didn't like was the chemistry, or lack thereof. I get the instalove (it annoys the hell out of me but I try not to judge), but the one in this book was so so annoying. It was just strange and it made me feel nothing.
Then, after about 60%, I kept looking at how much ...more
ETA 11/11/14: SQUEEEEEEEEEEE! It's on my Kindle!!!!
Werewolves, action/adventure, and romance - this book isn't calling my name, it's SCREAMING my name. :D WANT!
1/15/15 The Actual review :D -
Werewolves. As police officers. And there’s romance. And action. So. Much. Catnip! (Pardon the expression.) I was giddy when I saw this book and knew I wanted to read it. I was intrigued by the premise of a SWAT team being composed entire ...more
Reporter Mackenzie is hot on the trail of a big story, sure that there is a dirty secret behind the Dallas SWAT team's perfect record and she is not above using her seduction skills on SWAT team leader, Gage, to get that story. And Gage, whose team is composed of werewolves, is as equally willing to use his own animal magnetism on Mac to protect his pack's secrets.
I really liked Hungry Like the Wolf. I liked both the fearless tenacious Mac and ...more
Oh well, Tyler proved me wrong because this was definitely ENJ ...more

With a strong code of ethics, journalist Mackenzie Stone attacks a story like a dog with a bone. Mac’s nose for stories often leads her into dangerous situations, but the public deserves the truth. This time, she catches a scent that may reveal Dallas’ SWAT time isn’t as squeaky-clean as it should be. After seeing the team in action, there’s a sequence of events that doesn’t add up. As Mac digs deeper and gets closer to the team she experiences a conflict of inte ...more
Dammit all to hell. Things were going so fucking good! I mean. Like the book version of your eyes rolling back in your head and then...the heroine had to be both too stupid to live and put her career as a journalist above everything else and not give a damn who it hurt. Gah but I HATE heroines like that. Worst career for a heroine to have. It's like an instant stamp of "you're going to wish the bad guys would just kill me before the boo ...more
Action, suspense, and romance.
Hungry Like the Wolf starts off slow, picks up, slows down, and picks up again. I wasn’t overly impressed or drawn into the world and story. The world building wasn’t bad, but we just don’t get much on the world building until later, much later, in the story when we have a mini-info ...more
This review is posted on Way Too Hot Books>.
3 solid, action-packed, suspenseful & steamy stars.
What can I say- men in uniform turn me on and shifters are one of my favorite creatures of the night, so those are one of the main reasons that "made" me choose this book. I can't say that the story impressed me, but I also can't say it was that bad. There were some things I liked about it and then there were some things that the author ...more
There is never a dull moment is this thrilling fast paced and smooth flowing plot that keeps readers on the edge of their seat with suspense, action and romance. The reader’s can’t help but get caught up in the story as Mackenzie sets her sights on ...more
I needed a good PNR, and this fit the bill! This is the first book in Paige Tyler’s new series SWAT, a series about a SWAT team made up entirely of alpha shifters. They have such an amazing record, that the city of Dallas has given them commendations, etc. But a source shows up at Mackenzie Stone’s work and tells her that they aren’t normal guys. He has the claw marks to prove it.
Mackenzie figures these guys are on some new performance enhancing drug, and s ...more
RATING: SOLID 3 HEARTS
Men in uniform + werewolf shifters = SOLD! Its been a while since I last read an okay werewolf book, but Paige Tyler's debut read definitely resolved that for me. Along with a little suspense, action and a lot of steaminess thrown together with the werewolf aspect, this was a little better than okay. I enjoyed this, despite me wishing that certain aspects could change, most notably the stupid (and infuriating) thing Mac does near the 73% mark. There were some other minor re ...more
I wasn't expecting it to be so sweet, but heck, I'm in love with THE WHOLE SWAT TEAM now *SWOON*
CAN'T WAIT to read the REST of this series, Paige Tyler!!!!

This first book was the pack leader, Gage Dixon's story and wouldn't you know it his heroine was an investigative journalist determined to snoop out a story. Ordinarily, I see the word 'reporter' or 'journalist' in a book blur ...more
SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team
I couldn't resist grabbing-up this new series by Paige Tyler! Hungry Like the Wolf is part of her new series featuring very alpha males as part of the Dallas SWAT team. Only these are not any ordinary males, they're shifters of the furry, werewolves variety. Need numbers. There are 16 members of this close-knit group to drool over. Brother officers who have each other's backs, bro-camaraderie, and some serious physical awesomeness going on. I loved every minute s
Right off the bat, I hate this character. Mac is a ...more
I love this high-adventure, shifter romance. It has all the right elements for an explosively fun read – a cynical alpha male (lots of them); a smart, sassy female, a law enforcement setting (can it get any better than SWAT?), and a notorious bad guy with lots of money and no-holds-barred bad behavior.
Gage Dixon is the leader of the Dallas SWAT. He has recruited some of the best shifters around the country to be on the tea ...more
Do you know what SWAT stands for? Yep, SPECIAL WOLF ALPHA TEAM!!!
This author is new to me. I'm going to be searching out her other books just as fast as I can! This was a fabulous start in a new series. In the acknowledgements at the end of the book, Ms. Tyler mentions that she and her husband came up with this idea and I really can't thank them enough.
A whole pack of Alpha Wolf Shifters, wearing uniforms...yes, my kindle tried to melt. Ms. Tyler builds their ...more
Perhaps I am showing my age here, but I grew up watching SWAT on TV every week. However, I have never encountered a SWAT team quite like this one. It would explain a lot. Bigger, faster, stronger, these men are the type of police officers just about anyone would be afraid to encounter in a dark alley or otherwise. Now add the wolf factor and you’ve got an unstoppable force. Unless, you’re a ...more
The characters in this novel were really neat to get to know. Everyone, main and secondar ...more

“I love you.”
She held her breath, waiting for him to say something. And waited…and waited…and waited.
But Gage just stood there still as a statue, his face unreadable.
“Um, Sarg. I’m not real familiar with this part, but I think you’re supposed to say something,” Cooper said softly.”
