Wolf Hunt by Paige Tyler


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.

M/F Shifter Romance

I really enjoyed this story. Triana and Remy complement each other wonderfully and I liked how they could banter with the other pack members just as easily. I felt that the pack members had an unbreakable bond and despite having so many alphas around, they made it work.

I love New Orleans, so the setting was fun. However, I felt that the pack members didn't really appreciate where they were. Also, I think that if we had been able to see more development between the two main characters, it would have helped the story be less "typical shifter."

The "hot" scenes were somewhat boring and despite the thought that they could have been seriously scorching, these didn't really portray what I thought, could have been an explosive relationship.

Overall, I hope the other shifters get their stories too, who don't have one already.

Definitely more paranormal romance than urban fantasy, this is a fairly predictable shifter romance. This is the first book I’ve read in the series but the tropes are immediately familiar. This story follows Remy, one of a brotherhood of alpha werewolves/SWAT officers. Returning to his hometown of New Orleans with some SWAT teammates, he scents his fated mate and falls instantly in love with her.

A forensic scientist and a former high school friend, Triana is the typical paranormal romance fated mate. She is brave and intelligent but ultimately, she needs Remy’s help and protection when her search for her father’s killer entangles her in Remy’s current vice case. Similarly, Remy could be one of many similar alpha men in any number of paranormal romance books. He has a troubled past. He struggles to accept the idea of a fated mate. He feels an overwhelming urge to protect Triana… Anyways. There isn’t much that makes these two unique. I felt like I’d read these characters many times before. They are both beautiful and good – and a little bit too predictable for me.

There are some explicit sex scenes in this book but the “harder, faster” nature of the first one read as more painful than pleasurable. This, combined with a grocery list style recitation of various sex acts, had me skimming the sex scenes pretty early on. The sex felt more clinical than sensual and I didn’t feel it did much to build Remy and Triana’s relationship.

Ultimately, this is a conventional shifter romance. The main characters are likeable and the tropes are familiar. It is a quick, easy read with some entertaining action scenes.
