My Review

Summary 

Paul Cunningham, is one of the few left from their SEAL team still unmated, after his latest mission that proved traumatic for him, he has come home for a break from his busy contracted missions and to face up to his past and find the one woman he has longed for, his true mate. When he and his closest friend Allan, arrive home, they are both drafted into a local charity bachelor auction. At first he is appalled, the last thing he wants to do is to be offered up like a slice of meat, but it’s for a good cause, and if it results in spending time with Lori Greypaw and winning her over, then he will show off his ‘assets’ when it is required. Lori has been in love with Paul most of her life, but he is too involved in his SEAL team missions, she is determined to wait until he is ready to settle down before she even begins anything more serious than friendship with Paul. He is the hope that their pack needs to survive, but he must want to be their leader and must desire to stay and be her partner and not want to gallivant around the world and put his life in constant danger. And she will accept nothing less…

The Hero 

Paul Cunningham is part of a pack where most of the members and his family were killed by a rival and rabid pack. There are only a few survivors left, and he will protect them at all costs. Paul is part of a SEAL team, even though he has been retired from the military service for quite some time, he and the rest of the team (those that haven’t yet mated) go on contracted missions, mostly saving kidnapped victims. Paul puts his heart and soul into his work, he is a natural-born leader, and he has a destiny he will need to face up to. What was most fascinating about Paul was how deeply entrenched he is in the story. He is pure alpha male, takes command of every situation, possessive but loving and playful too, especially when it comes to Lori. He has always known that she was his mate, even when he was a boy, he always knew and indulged her antics. I adored how Paul’s character, accepted life as it was, he didn’t shy away from the truth and faced up to what he was feeling. He didn’t hide from pain or joy, he embraced it. In this story we see how he handles a variety of scenarios and emotions that bring more meaning to the story.

The Heroine 

Lori lost all of her family, except for her beloved grandmother, and will everything she can to keep her safe. She runs a self-defense and karate class to keep them financially stable, and keep herself in shape in case a threat were to jeopardize those she loves the most that weren’t lost in the battle years ago. Lori is strong and competent but she refuses to enter in a relationship with a man who is always away on missions, she deserves and demands more from her future mate. So she is willing to wait for him to decide when she is important enough to him. Lori is a heroine I loved instantly. She isn’t a door mat, she accepts life with an open appeal, she doesn’t back down from a challenge, but there is one man she will hide from…her future mate. Because she knows that if she places her heart out there, it might just get bruised and even broken, because his life as a SEAL is vital to him. I liked that she is honest about who she is and who she is meant to become. But we see how she also fears the emotions that Paul evokes in her, but I found it most intriguing that even though she fears certain things, when the time is right she stands up and embraces him and her life fully.

Plot and Story Line 

SEAL Wolf Hunting was a bit of a change from the latest books in the series, but boy am I glad she is returning to these SEAL members, because boy was Paul super sexy in this story. There is something so different about a SEAL romance but when you add a shifter romance in the mix, it brings the reader to new heights. And boy has Terry Spear done it again, captivated me heart and soul from the first page. It was no difficult getting into this story, and it can be read as a stand alone if need be, I would recommend reading the whole series first though so you understand some other side characters and their relationship with Paul and Allan a bit more. Although I will say the author does set up decent background information, that you don’t have to. If you have yet to try this author out…boy are you ladies and gents missing out on one fantastic author!! She is by far one of my favorite paranormal authors, she writes in a very engaging way, and there isn’t one book of hers I haven’t loved. In this story we see the story begin with Paul and Allan coming home, they call Allan’s mother, who sounds very secretive and having just returned from a very dangerous mission, their senses are on high alert, and they assume something is wrong, well they burst in with military pain and their weapons and Paul ends up being wacked over the head by Lori and he kisses her and thus begins an unusual courtship of these wolves that have known each other since childhood, and always knew they were each others mates. The story progresses with Lori and Paul working together on house repairs for Lori’s grandmother, playing together as wolves, and some steamy but highly romantic love scenes that keeps your interest on these two. It doesn’t end with them mating…oh no the story just begins to get even more interesting, and we see how well these two can work together even if they are hundreds of miles apart from each other. We do have some villains, that at the beginning of the story I wasn’t fully expecting to see to be honest, I mean they turn out pretty bad, on the surface they just seem like troublemakers, restless shifter wolves that have no pack, but we soon see how their motives go more treacherous than that, and we see how the whole pack will band together, and even an extra character or two that Paul and Lori will need to trust if they want to survive. Engaging and quite heart wrenching, a romance that true in emotion and classic in its rousing entertainment of a story that will win your heart!! Terry Spear is winning me over with each new story!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND to fans of paranormal romance and sexy alpha male shifter and inspirational heroines!!

The Cover
