Damn I did not see that coming and poor Cooper didn’t either. Readers of Ms. Tyler’s SWAT series know that Cooper just had to have the hardest time falling in love, because he teased and gave so much advice to his pack-mates as they found love. Fans of shifter romances will be familiar with the trope of destined mates, but Tyler twists her plots enough that it doesn’t get boring. If you are looking for an intensely passionate story full of laughter, tears, and action you will love this story. Cooper is a true alpha male and when he sets eyes on the sweet Everly, right before their world turns upside down, he knows that he has to have her for himself. He protects her and ultimately convinces her to go out with him, but Everly has no idea his true nature. Their relationship heats up very quickly and soon Cooper is meeting her family—boy does that go wrong! Everly doesn’t understand the intense pull between herself and Landry, but she is more than willing to allow the attraction to pull them together. When her heart becomes quickly involved, it is obvious that she needs to make a decision, but when the truth of his nature is revealed she has to decide more than just can she deal with his job. She has to decide if she can make a life with a werewolf when her past is haunted by a tragedy. I loved Everly even though, when the truth comes out, I wanted to slap her a few times. She obviously loves Cooper even if she doesn’t understand the depth of their connection. Luckily, Cooper finds a way to not only keep her safe from his enemies, but also to steal her heart permanently. The fireworks in their story are explosive (pun intended) and when these two lovers are anywhere near each other there is no denying that they were meant to be. I love this series and am wondering who will fall in love next. The premise for this series might seem odd at first but I promise, if you try them, the SWAT guys and gals will win you over in no time! Thanks for a great read, Paige.
