A STORM IS BREWING...Remy Boudreaux is back in his hometown, New Orleans. He's there with three of his fellow Dallas SWAT officers for a week of training with the NOLA PD. On the eve of a tropical storm, Remy and his buddies prowl the French Quarter. One tantalizing scent captures Remy's senses, forcing him to follow until he is face to face with Triana Bellamy—his beautiful high school crush.
After reconnecting, Remy and Triana are close—very. Remy struggles to keep things casual. Ever since his partner—and first love—was killed on the job, he's kept women at a distance.
But when a mysterious wolf pendant ropes them both into danger, Remy's protective instincts kick in. He may have to reveal his true self...and hope Triana accepts him.
In Wolf Hunt, we have a thrilling and on your toes romance that is full of mystery, intrigue, actions and suspense and a fiery hot filled romance that I guarantee will curl your toes. Our exciting story, begins with our hero. The story sets off pretty quickly, and we see Remy working with his partner, to bring down three criminals who are torturing a young family. In the chaos, they end up losing more than they though, because Remy lost the woman he loved, and almost lost his life and found himself to be a werewolf. Now he is working with a team, doing some training exercises, and investigating a crime lord dealing drugs, when he finds himself following a special unique scent, a woman he hasn’t seen in years, a woman he knew in high school and cared deeply for. Triana, works for the medical examiner’s office, and while out dancing runs into the sexiest man she has ever known. These two are practically dynamite together, but there are some ghosts from the past that may keep them from finding their happy ending.
In Wolf Hunt, Paige Tyler overwhelms the reader will sexy romance and a edge of your seat action filled book. And boy did I love the way she wrote this book. It was nice to see a different setting and boy did I love the New Orleans setting. I can never get enough of it, and Tyler did a great job balancing it out with the story and it really seemed to work for this pair especially with the whole paranormal element of werewolves here. I loved seeing high school friends come back together. But there is much more going on than a simple friends to lovers romance. We have a murder mystery going on as well and a dangerous drug crime lord. Triana is investigating her father’s murder, which only draws more attention to her and her mother. Triana has to learn about the truth behind her father’s death, and who she really is.
The characters in this novel are simply fantastic. Lets set our main couple on the side line while I talk about some of my favorite side characters that really made this book come alive. First off is Triana’s mother. She was brilliant and a fighter. She is beyond wise, and deals with a little magic now and then. I like that she understands Triana and her relationship with Remy from the beginning. She has a very unique personality that I was instantly drawn to, very vibrant and even though her husband was brutally murdered, she hasn’t let what happened to her effect who she is or how she treats others.
First off, I think you get little credit for being friends with Remy in high school. It’s not as if you just met the man two days ago, you know. Even if you had, there’s nothing crazy about falling fast. It simply means fate put you in front of the man you were meant to be with. There’s nothing insane about that. In fact, its magical
We do have a true villain in the story as well, he is obsessed, and truly evil at the core and very power hungry. He was downright mentally crazy and he definitely gets what he deserves.
The romance that builds between our two characters is at first seen as a fling, since these two were once friends, and are only in New Orleans for a short time. Triana lives in Houston and Remy in Dallas. So these two aren’t looking for anything permenent, But it soon becomes something more but Remy isn’t as open as Triana is for a relationship. He is still half in love with his dead partner, and doesn’t believe he can open his heart again. So Remy has to learn to fight for what he has found with Triana and not let fear take control. And Triana learns that she needs to fight for Remy, and for what they have together.
This story was such an exciting and thrilling ride, and I adored every moment getting back in touch with this series with a truly fun setting with lively characters and a love story to tempt you to jump into the pages!!!
