SEAL Wolf In Too Deep (Heart of the Wolf #18)
by Terry Spear
Debbie Renaud is a police diver working on criminal cases with SEAL Allan Rappaport. She admires him greatly for his missions in the Navy, plus he's just plain HOT. Allan seems to share her attraction, but what she doesn't know is that her partner is wolf shifter.
Allan is really hung up on his smart, beautiful dive partner, but he can't get involved with a human outside dive duty. Yet when she gets between a werewolf hunter and his intended victim, one of the members of Allan's pack, they run into real trouble, and their lives are altered forever.
Themes: Shifters, werewolves
Rating: 3.25 stars
Another story in the Heart of the Wolf series has come to our shelves and the story of Debbie and Allan is an interesting if confusing one. I enjoyed reading the story once I fully engaged in it, but to be honest the first half was not my favorite and it seemed to drag quite a bit while also being very confusing with the innuendo, people pretending to believe in werewolves, even talking about werewolves like they were real, but not truly believing and round and round the story went. Allan was a good guy, obviously smitten with Debbie, but unwilling to give in to his desires until he has the approval of his pack leaders. Debbie is seriously into Allan, but doesn’t understand why he keeps pulling back from her. When they are faced with an increasingly complicated police investigation leading them down unplanned paths, Allan and Debbie are forced closer and closer together. Debbie's life is changed in an instant and Allan finally has a chance to bring Debbie into his world. There are a few laughs and some tears as well, but in the end the love between Allan and Debbie is obvious and once they overcome their fears and the forces keeping them apart the passion between them is palpable and undeniable. I am looking forward to seeing what story will come next and hope that the next book will be a bit more fast-paced and will not drag. The series continues on and usually I have no problem saying it will be a long one, but I hope for some new life to be breathed into the series soon. Spear continues to be one of my favorite authors and her books are great, to be sure, so I will keep being a fan forever, even if there are a few stories here and there that aren’t 100% my favorites.
