This is the second book in Paige Tyler’s SWAT series. I love the idea of a SWAT that is built entirely of werewolves. In the first book, Tyler only gave a few pieces of werewolf lore. This was something I wanted more of in the first book, Hungry Like the Wolf. I was hoping for more information. Her werewolves are different from many that I’ve read. They are turned during a traumatic event, such as a shootout when you’re in the police force or maybe in the military and injured at war. One thing we didn’t know if book one, did female werewolves exist. This is quickly answered in Wolf Trouble.

Khaki works for a police department in Washington state. She also had previously dated another member of the force. After a bad breakup, she found herself looking into some bad situations without any backup. Her ex convinces other cops not to help her out. She almost gets killed on night and suddenly she starts to notice differences in herself.

Dallas SWAT commander Gage Dixon is given crap for the fact that he doesn’t have any women on his team. He is told that he must add a woman to the team. He agrees, but only if it is one entirely of his choosing. He has been keep his eye on Khaki for a while and planning on offering her a spot, the timeline just has to get moved up a bit. This is the only way he is able to keep his werewolf team and keep the upper brass happy with adding a woman onto the team.

Khaki is put into Xander’s unit. There is definitely something between the two. However, with Khaki’s past luck with dating a co-worker and Xander also being her boss, it makes things very awkward. They both fight the attraction. Xander is also a lot harder on Khaki than he would be on someone else because of how much he is fighting the attraction.

One thing I loved seeing tackled in this story was the idea of forcing a woman onto a team just to meet some sorta quota. Khaki is told that she is filling this need for a woman on the team, which really makes her feel like she doesn’t deserve to be there. With the way Xander was acting, that only makes things worse. Gage was quick to point out that he was planning on asking her and that this just moved the timetable. I don’t think any woman (or even a minority, though I can’t speak for them), wants to know that they got the job because they were filling a quotient. Women want to know that they were the best fit for the job and were just given an equal opportunity to get that job.

Wolf Trouble Audiobook Narration

Once again, Abby Craden did a great job with the narration. I love her different voices for the characters. She has great pacing and tone. I do recommend her as a narrator. I’m currently listening to two series with her as the narrator and really enjoy both of them.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.

  1. I really need to hurry up and read this series. It sounds like I’d love it! I do have an audio credit right now that I can use hmmmm 😉 Great review Melanie!

  2. I loved this one even more than book one and yes, I liked getting more werewolf lore. Book three gives even more.

    Khaki was a great heroine. Loved seeing her prove that she belonged on the team and seeing Xander and the guys accept and adjust.

  3. This series sounds so, so good, Melanie! Already with your first review, I added it to my wish-list, and I’m sure I’ll do my best to start reading (or listening) sooner rather than later.

  4. OOOO, I like the direction Paige took the series! Great story point about “filling a quota” – no way, no how! That’s so much extra pressure to a stressful job. I’m glad the second book filed in the blanks on the backstory, too!!!

  5. I was just looking this author up this morning. I’ve never read anything from her, but one of her books was in a newsletter I receive, and the blurb prompted me to look her up.

    Great review! I think I’ll start with this series. I like the idea of an all wolf team.

    • I’ve really enjoyed her work so far. I’ve read one book in her X-Ops series. I enjoyed it too. It just taking me longer to get through that series. I can get through so many more audiobooks than books that I’m reading and X-Ops isn’t available on audio right now. I hope you enjoy the stories as much as I have.
