Werewolf SWAT Officer Jayden Brooks has yet to meet The One—but when he rescues teacher Selena Rosa from a hostage situation at her high school, he knows he’s in trouble. Her scent is irresistible.
There’s a reason for that powerful scent—and it isn’t an expensive perfume. Thanks to the traumatizing events at the school, the werewolf gene flipped on and Selena’s going through the change. Even scarier, she’s on track to become an omega—an out-of-control and violent breed. It’s going to take everything Brooks has if he wants any chance to pull her back from the edge…and ultimately win her heart.

My Rating: 4.5 stars
It is always so easy to fall back into Paige Tyler’s werewolf team series. I have yet to find one that I did’t love, even if I did’t like some characters or their actions. Wolf Rising brings Jayden’s chance to hind his “one”… and he gets a lot more than he ever expected in Selena.
I loved Selena. She’s confident, takes no crap from anyone, loyal to a fault and completely wrapped up in her students. Unfortunately, she and her students live in a gang controlled area and keeping her students out of the clutches of the gangs is an ongoing battle. Some she wins, others are not so lucky. This day Selena is being held hostage in her classroom by a gang member – and life as she knows it is about to change forever.
Almost immediately upon arriving at the scene Jayden catches that special scent, the one that will lead to his mate – but there’s more to that scent and it couldn’t happen at a worse time. Every member of the team knows personally that the werewolf gene is switched on by a traumatic event… and being held hostage has just switched that gene on in Selena. Even more problematic? She’s an omega, strong and out of control. Now it’s up to Jayden to not only introduce his mate into their paranormal world but to show her just what she is to him as well.
Wolf Rising is intense, sexy and once again grabbed my attention until the final page. Jayden and Selena have more to deal with than her turning and their attraction. We’ll discover who the insider is. And add more information about several sub-plots. In some ways this story feels like a turning point, but I’ll have to see if I still feel that way when the next story comes along. In all, I completely enjoyed myself in this world once again. I don’t like to slip on spoilers, so I’m often vague with suspense novels… but this one is intriguing, and if you’ve read the rest of the series you’ll definitely want to pick up Wolf Rising. I’d not hesitate to recommend this story or the entire series to any reader of Paranormal Romance or Suspense – you’ll find yourself quickly captured by this series.
