He’s a wolf shifter.
She hunts monsters.
How can she be The One for him?

SWAT werewolf Zane Kendrick will do whatever it takes to take down the man who attacked his pack. His search takes him to Los Angeles, but when he meets Alyssa, the smart, sexy agent who comes to his aid, he’s immediately interested in pursuing more than just the next lead. All his wolf instincts tell him that she’s The One.

FBI agent Alyssa Carson has investigated some weird stuff lately, and finding missing people drained of their blood definitely falls into that category. When following a clue leads her to Zane, she agrees to work with him and his team. She’s attracted to the gorgeous Brit, but she doesn’t have time for anything but finding answers.

When Zane and Alyssa discover the sinister truth, it’ll take everything they have to make it out of this mission with their lives―and hearts―intact.

WOLF INSTINCT takes us back to Paige Tyler’s SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team series with an intense, steamy romance with a few twists and discoveries that make this particular book one that followers of the series really need to add to their collection.

Zane has found his One in Alyssa.  Yet she hunts the paranormal beings that she doesn’t really understand — just like him.  Zane has been previously injured and going on this particular mission is his way of stating he’s fine, even when he isn’t really.  When Alyssa teams up with Zane for this mission neither expected what they would eventually discover about the missing girls or what is preying on them.  Somehow Zane has to explain exactly what he is and what Alyssa is to him without having her turn on him.  That there is wildly addicting chemistry between them is on his side of the argument, but can she accept what she only has a vague idea of as her future reality with him.

There are twists in WOLF INSTINCT that caught me off guard and I completely loved the turn this series seems to take in Zane and Alyssa’s story.  At nine stories in a series, I’m pretty comfortable with that world and begin to wonder when it’s going to wind to an ending.  I don’t have that feeling here at all, in fact, it feels as though we are building for even more danger, intrigue, and romance.  Which is perfectly fine with me as I’m going to hate leaving this world behind one day.

If you have followed the series from the beginning I feel that WOLF INSTINCT is a critical story.  And I like the direction it is leading us.

I loved Zane and Alyssa together, they have issues to be dealt with but they are a believable couple.  There is certainly danger here, some unexpected twists and turns, and always a very satisfying ending (even when it seems like a Happy For Now one).  Love the Paranormal world of werewolves, thrive on Romantic Suspense?  Then you’ll want to dive into this series, you’ll soon be hooked.

*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.*
