CWT was no different with conflicting alphas, acceptance, betrayals and at the center, great characters that you care about. A slow burn romance that builds on their relationship while also holding a solid plot full of mystery and suspense.Trouble has been following Wes Calhoun for most of his life. After leaving his father's pack and joining the Grey Wolf Pack, it's been a constant battle to atone for his past. It's been years but he still feels the judgement and the distrust of his pack mates.When his hunch proves his old pack is up to it's old tricks and stirring the possibility of war, Wes, an alpha in his own right, doesn't hesitate to take them down. But his rash actions lead to a chain of events even he didn't see coming.Naomi is a human he definitely didn't plan on. She's smart, she's self sufficient and strong. And somehow involved with his old pack. When her life is endangered, Wes takes her under his protection. But with his old pack out for blood and the reluctant support of his new pack, Wes and Naomi find themselves cornered and with only themselves to turn to. He wanted to open himself to her, to cast aside his shame and take off the mask he’d worn for so long it felt as it were suffocating him. He longed for it in a way he was certain he’d never longed for anything in his life. Seeing the Hero’s vulnerable side and getting his POV is always a plus. Would I recommend? A more serious read then I’m used to but I still enjoyed it.* * * ARC provided for an honest review * * *I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book.

So much so that he ends up getting trapped on a human's ranch, causing him to do the one thing he's forbidden to do...shift in front of a human. And now that she's seen him, he needs to protect her. But at what cost? And will his past come back to bite him? Although this took me a while to get in to, once I did, I was completely engaged. The "bow chica bow wow" scenes are super hot and the drama is just enough to keep you wondering. I really liked that multiple packs had to come together, introducing us to more shifters (hopefully getting their own book). All in all, good start to a series that has serious potential.

    I enjoyed it. I didn't love it, I liked the story enough to finish it. I will look at reading more from the author in the future, and continue with this new series. I love shifters, I wasn't at all expecting myself to struggle to get into the story. Once I did it was enjoyable. This has potential to be a great series for PNR lovers!

The series is set to revolve around the seven shifter clans that call the Montana Mountains their home. I have to say that I’d have been drawn to this book regardless once I saw the awesome abs featured on the cover. Oh my!I’ve been a fan of Kait’s since I first discovered her in After Dark, a release she shared with Gena Showalter. Her contribution to the anthology was Shadow Hunter which introduced her Execution Underground series – a fabulous series that I can’t wait to read more of! Therefore, you can imagine my excitement when I realized that this new series actually has ties to her Execution Underground series! That said, no worries if you’ve never read her Execution Underground series. It’s not necessary to be familiar with that series to fully enjoy Cowboy Wolf Trouble. This is the story of wolf shifter Wes Calhoun and human, part Native American rancher/biologist Naomi Evans. Their story is related in the third person. When Naomi finds a wolf ensnared in a trap on her ranch, she reluctantly knew she was going to have to deal with it. She couldn’t let the wolf suffer nor could she afford to lose any more livestock. As she loads the barrel of her rifle, the wolf unbelievably shifts into a naked man. Naomi’s world tilts. “That’s not humanly possible,” she breathed. He smirked as if she amused him. “Good thing I’m not human.” Wes had just done the one thing he’s forbidden to do – shift in front of a human. But, if he had not, he’d be dead. Now, his pack will probably do the deed and Naomi’s life is in danger too as humans cannot know about shifters. He vows to protect her. But, is this a vow he can keep?I was drawn into this tale from the very beginning. Naomi and Wes are both easy to connect to. They have an explosive, steamy chemistry from the get-go. They both face discrimination and problems with acceptance by their peers. Naomi struggles to save her ranch. Naomi is an anomaly in the world of Montana cattle ranchers where women ranchers are still rare. Wes fights to save his very soul. He’s a former packmaster, but he gave that life up to join an opposition pack. He’s yet to find his place there as he struggles with authority and his own self-worth as his new pack wrestles with trusting him. Their story held my rapt attention throughout. Following please find a few of my favorite lines from Cowboy Wolf Trouble: “Our medic will want to dig your shotgun pellet out of my shoulder." She grimaced. "Sorry about that." He smirked. "Not the roughest kind of foreplay I've had." That sexy grin scorched her from the inside out.--- “While she wasn't looking, he subtly adjusted the erection straining against his jeans. "How big is it?" She broke the momentary silence between them.Wes froze. Apparently, he hadn't been as discreet as he'd thought, but he hadn't expected such a blunt ques..."You do know the acreage of your own ranch, don't you?" she asked.” --- “Toys are for men who don't know how to use their hands.” Cowboy Wolf Trouble is an engrossing read that made me feel that I was in the story with the characters. I chuckled at Wes’ and Naomi’s banter, swooned with their steamy chemistry and was on the edge of my seat as trouble loomed from all directions. The freakish half-vampires gave me the chills. Expect plenty of fast-paced action, betrayals, deception, danger, surprising twists and humor. Kait’s word-building is first-rate and the story flows well. I can’t wait to see where Kait takes this series next in Cowboy in Wolf’s Clothing, set to be released in mid-2019.

Wes and Naomi are strong, captivating characters that pull readers into their story and refuse to let go. The romance is a roller coaster ride of turbulent emotions, magnetic attraction, scorching passion and a forbidden relationship which keeps the happily ever after of this story in question until the very end, especially since the hero is in serious need of care and affection but has tons of issues that have to be overcome. The bad boy turned good aspect of the story also adds tension and drama ensuring that the readers can’t get enough.The plot is fast paced and full of thrilling suspense, adrenaline pumping danger and excitement which keeps readers on the edge of their seats. Mistaken identity, the no humans allowed factor and a group of malicious minded shifters keep the tension and expectations high throughout which makes this a hard to put down story. Readers may find it hard to get into the story at the beginning which is quite unexpected but they don’t regret sticking it with it as the story and the characters insists they continue. The author has created an intriguing world with some sexy, gritty cowboy shifters that captures readers imaginations and she portrays those characters and the setting in such a way that readers want to explore it from every angle. The series is connected to her Execution Underground series, but it can be read without having read it, however the EU does play a part in this story and readers may want to understand the workings of the EU better.

    This author was new to me but the cover and blurb captured my attention and I'm so glad I gave it a try.Naomi and Wes were explosive together. Both of them are protective and quick to anger/action. Wes spends a good share of the book trying to do right but yet he can't change who he is. He is a man of action and sometimes that means defying the alpha in charge. He rationalized that it is for the greater good.

Naomi was a rancher who was just minding her own business when a trap her brother sets captures a wolf and she has to deal with it. Not knowing that this wolf was going to shake her world upside down.I really liked how strong and independent Naomi was and how even though Wes didn't believe it, she knew he was a good man. He was very strong headed about it but she did what she thought was right in order to help him because that is what you do, when your partner is down you are the person to hold them up and make them believe.I will be reading more from this author!

    Paranormal romance was my first love when picking a romance novel, but the last couple of years I’ve been busy reading other subgenres. I found myself in the mood for a paranormal romance when I was browsing Netgalley a month ago. The first cover to grab my attention was that of Cowboy Wolf Trouble. Come on just look at it. Mmmm…..Then I looked at the title and thought, yes, a werewolf romance that must have a cowboy on as the hero. Another thought I had was, oh Kait Ballenger is the author.

Mmmm…..Then I looked at the title and thought, yes, a werewolf romance that must have a cowboy on as the hero. Another thought I had was, oh Kait Ballenger is the author. Lovely women, I met her a few years back at an Authors After Dark boon con. I also have read a couple of her books in her first series, Execution Underground. I remember I really enjoyed that series. I still need to read the last novel, Midnight Hunter and after half-way, through reading Cowboy Wolf Trouble I found it at the library and I’m now on the waitlist for it. I was pleasantly surprised as an I read Cowboy Wolf Trouble, that it is a spin-off of the Execution Underground series because the EU and some of its hunters are mentioned and later one makes a cameo. Anyway back to my reading experience with Cowboy Wolf Trouble. It has all the key elements of a paranormal romance, hot alpha hero who shifts into a wolf, strong heroine and an element of danger. Plus there are a few smexy love scenes between the cowboy wolf and rancher heroine. Kait Ballenger does a great job with setting up the world for the Seven Range Shifters series. Werewolves are not the only shifters and there are vampires too. We only get a peek at the other supernaturals for now because it’s all about the Grey Wolf Pack and the Wild Eight Pack. In this world, supernaturals hide their nature from humans. Which brings in one of the major conflicts when our wolfy hero, Wes meets the rancher heroine, Naomi. He reveals his shifter nature to her one night when he is trapped in an animal trap her brother set up against her wishes. (READ THIS SCENE HERE!) Needless to say, Naomi gets a surprise when she finds a sexy man in the wolf trap. By law, he should have killed her after she saw him shift, but he puts his neck on the line to save her, multiple times.The romance develops over the course of the story while the wolf packs work up to a battle against each other. Namoi does her best to give some much needed TLC to Wes, but because of his past, Wes doesn’t believe he deserves her love. While Cowboy Wolf Trouble didn’t completely knock my socks off, but honestly most first books in a series don’t. I enjoyed most elements of the story and plan to read the novel, Cowboy in Wolf’s Clothing when it releases this summer.

Learning of their existence could lead to death. Naomi of course doesn't know this, and when she encounters a wolf in a trap, her world tilts. Then, this werewolf tells her its vampires draining her flock and she is shook. The story is a mix of humans set on 'defending the human race' with violence, a malicious wolf pack, and some freakish half vampires.Wes was once a packmaster. He gave up his title and joined another pack. He hasn't quite felt like a real packmember since though. Now Wes has discovered his old pack is up to no good and Naomi might be right in the middle. The suspense is pretty high throughout the story. These shifters are brutal and none of them give a "warm fuzzy" vibe. It was a different feel to the shifter trope in subtle ways-killing humans, fighting each other. Wes had some annoying hero habits though-he pushed Naomi away, he constantly thought he wasn't worth anything, and he didn't trust her even though she had given him no reason to feel that way.Naomi is an uncommon sight in the world of Montana cattle ranchers. A woman running a ranch is still not common, and add to it she is part Native American, and you have a recipe for discrimination. In addition to all that, she is a college educated Biologist. She knew she would one day inherit the family ranch, but she wasn't sure she really wanted the job. Her brother, on the other hand, did want the job and is NOT happy that the ranch passed to Naomi when their father died. As the story continues, you learn that Naomi is torn between her familial obligations to the ranch and her own desires.The story is unique and the characters are likable enough, but I struggled to get into this one. I can't put my finger on why exactly, though. I think some of it was Wes. Some of it was it felt too long. However, there is lots of action and deception and danger, so there is plenty to keep you going. I liked the book overall and I am interested in checking out book 2 for sure. The world Ballenger has created is interesting and the other Grey Wolves sound like they might have some good stories to tell.  POV: 3rd Tears: no Trope: shifters, cowboys Triggers: none Series/Standalone: standalone Cliffhanger: (view spoiler)[spoiler (hide spoiler)] HEA: (view spoiler)[spoiler (hide spoiler)]Paige Tyler's SWAT or X-OPS series, Jennifer Ashley's Shifters Unbound series, Christine Feehan's Carpathian series ...then you will probably like Cowboy Wolf Trouble!  Cowboy Wolf Trouble   See full review on The Book Disciple

As with most shifter stories, it challenges every single reality as we know it, which gives the reader a welcome exit from the real world for a while. The main character, a wolf shifter, Wes Calhoun, was the leader of a bad boy pack before leaving them and joining the Grey Wolves. He has a nasty back story, but is trying his best to become a better man...ummm....wolf. After being attacked on Grey Wolf land by his former pack, he follows them for miles and gets caught in a trap on Naomi Evans ranch. He has to shift from wolf to man to keep her from shooting him. Oops. That’s a problem. The shifters are bound by oath to keep their existence secret, and are supposed to kill a human who learns their secret. He doesn’t want to. And doesn’t. It causes problems for them both. This occurs early in the story, so no spoiler....The problems and why this very good story didn’t get 5 Stars...I have indicated that I like this book. I did, but I had to get past a couple of bad mistakes. I’m writing this review on the 1st of October, and the book doesn’t release until the 1st of January, giving the publisher, the editors or the author a lot of time to correct the errors. I hope they do and you will never see these mistakes.First, the author calls bales of hay “barrels”. Not just once, but several times. There is no possibility that it’s an autocorrect blooper. It doesn’t matter the size or shape, hay is always baled. That should be general knowledge, not something that needs to be googled. The characters in this story are ranchers. That mistake is major.Second, Naomi, a rancher, refers to a horse as being “blond”. “Blond” is not a recognized horse color, and I can’t think of a single person connected to horses in the most casual way that would call a palomino a “blond horse”.Third is a bit more difficult to describe. There are many horsemanship errors. These characters are experienced ranchers, but they act and think like novice riders. Any true horseman will spot this immediately. And the horses behave in ways that you would only see on old reruns of Fury, My Friend Flicka or cartoons. Horses don’t do those things...well, maybe a highly trained circus horse. Not general use ranch horses.Having said all that, I repeat that I enjoyed this book. It’s highly imaginative, and inspite of the mistakes, it’s well done. I like the world that Ms. Ballenger has created, and I hope that, being pre-warned, you will ignore the bloopers and pick up a copy and...Enjoy!

Even bad-boy rancher Wes Calhoun, former leader of a renegade pack, has given up his violent ways and sworn loyalty to the Grey Wolves. But his dark past keeps catching up with him…Human rancher Naomi Evans cares only about saving the ranch that was her father’s legacy. Until a clash with Wes opens up a whole new world—a supernatural world on the verge of war—and Naomi, her ranch, and the sexy cowboy wolf stealing her heart are smack dab in the middle of it.••••••••••REVIEW: COWBOY WOLF TROUBLE is the first instalment in Kait Ballenger’s contemporary, adult SEVEN RANGE SHIFTERS erotic, romance series, a spin-off from the author’s EXECUTION UNDERGROUND series. This is wolf shifter and rancher Wes Calhoun, and human rancher / biologist Naomi Evans’ story line. You do not have to have read the previous series to understand or follow the current release.Told from dual third person perspectives (Naomi and Wes) COWBOY WOLF TROUBLE follows the building but forbidden relationship between wolf shifter and rancher Wes Calhoun, and human rancher Naomi Evans. Naomi Evans is at war with an unknown force when she suspects a pack of wolves is laying waste to her flock of sheep. A trap set to catch the thief netted Naomi the surprise of her life when she pointed her gun at a naked male. Once shifted, Wes Calhoun was caught between head and heart when his pack leader decided Naomi knew too much to remain alive. What ensues is the building but forbidden romance between Naomi and Wes, and the potential fall-out as Wes’s reputation as a killer comes into question when Naomi becomes the unknown entity in a potential, supernatural war.Wes Calhoun knows betrayal and loss. Once the packmaster for the Wild Eight’s, a rogue pack of shifting wolves, Wes sought out solitude, and forfeited his leadership when he swore loyalty to the local Seven Range Pack. Unable to forgive himself for sins of the past, Wes’ history would continue to follow in the wake of threats against the woman he loved. Bad boy to the bone, Wes must battle to prove there is more to Naomi’s story than meets the eye. Naomi Evans’ family owned ranch is struggling to survive but an offer to buy her property becomes fodder for a potential war when Naomi’s appearance in Wes’ life, is questioned by the people in control. Strong-willed, feisty and driven, Naomi is willing to risk her life to save the man with whom she is falling in love. Unfortunately, Wes’ troubled history, continues to mar any semblance of peace and retribution for our leading hero.The relationship between Naomi and Wes is a forbidden romance. The Grey Wolves are forbidden to enter into sexual relationships with humankind, preferring to keep their supernatural species pure and untainted but Wes suspects Naomi is his mate, and struggles to stay one step ahead of the people trying to destroy their growing love. A lack of trust complicated by lies and deceit, and the pull of the man in control force Wes to push Naomi out of his life. The $ex scenes are passionate and intense, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.We are introduced to a large ensemble cast of colorful secondary and supporting characters including packmaster Maverick Grey , medic Austin, High Commander of the Grey Wolf armies Colt Cavanaugh, IT specialist Blaze,and shifter Malcolm. The requisite evil has many faces.The world building follows the potential for war as the Wild Eights target Wes Calhoun and the Grey Wolf pack. The Wild Eights have drawn the proverbial line in the sand, and have merged with a more powerful species in their attempts to takedown their once mighty leader.COWBOY WOLF TROUBLE is a story of secrets and lies; betrayal and deceit; family, forgiveness and love. The premise is engaging, dramatic and startling; the characters are impassioned and strong; the romance is heart breaking and intimate. COWBOY WOLF TROUBLE is a strong start to the Seven Range Shifters series.Copy supplied by Netgalleywww.thereadingcafe.com

    "Cowboy Wolf Trouble" was an interesting start to a new paranormal romance series. Shifters (in seven groups) inhabit the mountain ranges of Montana in relative peace. There are many types of shifters in those mountains, all types of predators (bears, wolves, coyotes, etc.). Wes is a wolf, and the wolves exist grouped into several packs. Wes was formerly the alpha/head of the Wild Eight pack, but he is now a member of the Grey Wolves pack, which is a large pack that also runs a huge ranch. As th "Cowboy Wolf Trouble" was an interesting start to a new paranormal romance series. Shifters (in seven groups) inhabit the mountain ranges of Montana in relative peace. There are many types of shifters in those mountains, all types of predators (bears, wolves, coyotes, etc.). Wes is a wolf, and the wolves exist grouped into several packs. Wes was formerly the alpha/head of the Wild Eight pack, but he is now a member of the Grey Wolves pack, which is a large pack that also runs a huge ranch. As the Wild Eight and Grey Wolves are enemies, it has been a difficult transition for Wes. However, Wes is loyal, even if not obedient, to his new pack. He knows the Wild Eight are up to something, and he is determined to find out what it is and save his new pack- and all the shifters. On top of these conflicts, there is also a human group, the Execution Underground, who are out to kill all the shifters and supernatural creatures (beyond shifters, there are also vampires and witches, etc.).Naomi is none of these. She is a human running her family's small ranch, which has been terrorized by some wild animals, killing their sheep and cattle. She has no idea that anything other than humans lives in the world, much less her backyard. Her brother has set up some animal traps without her knowledge, and it is when she hears one catch an animal that she ventures out to see if she needs to put the animal down. To her shock, the wolf caught shifts into a human man, and Naomi is rapidly pulled into the battles to come.Wes should have killed Naomi when she learned what he was, but he finds himself wanting to protect her instead. As they set off on a quest to learn what is happening at her ranch and what the Wild Eight pack is up to, they are also unable to deny their attraction for each other. With loads of steamy scenes amidst action/adventure type sequences, this was a fast-paced read that is full of plot. There's a lot that happens in this book, and so many new things to learn about this world. While a smaller battle is wrapped up in this book, it is clear the war will wage on in future books of the series (maybe featuring different shifter groups, I suspect). Overall, I enjoyed the book and the new world created. Sometimes I felt a little lost and did not totally understand what was going on, but it's a lot of new things to introduce so it is understandable- I did get the big picture, but especially at the beginning, it could be a little hard to follow and understand the main characters' motivations (particularly why Naomi had to leave her ranch and why Wes was so driven to protect her). The romance was very well done, and I really understood the push-pull relationship between the two and liked how it evolved over time. I would definitely be interested to read more from this series.Please note that I received an ARC from the publisher through netgalley. All opinions are my own.

There is a connection to The Execution Underground series, yet while EU is an enjoyable series it’s not necessary to have read that one to enjoy this new series… but it does add to your enjoyment if you know one faction’s background, in my opinion.Naomi and Wes make an interesting couple, especially since pack rule is that humans and shifters do not ever mix… or mate. Wes had lived the bad boy life once, but he’s left his former troublemaking pack and his bad boy ways in the past. His new pack and new attitude are what saved him from what the Wild Eight pack is getting into now. He might be a bit redeemed, but he still has trouble following rules. Out to discover what the Wild Eight pack is up to, convinced it means trouble for his new pack, Wes finds himself trapped… and has to do the one thing forbidden above all else… shift in front of a human.Naomi is struggling to keep her family ranch afloat. It doesn’t help matters any that something is killing off her livestock. Against her wishes, her brother has set out traps… and the wolf now firmly caught seems to tell the tale of what is after her stock. Faced with putting the animal out of its misery Naomi is about to come face to face with the impossible as the wolf in the trap transforms into a man. Naomi’s life will never be the same again.I was caught up in “Cowboy Wolf Trouble”. There is world building to get through, but that’s to be expected in a new series with several paranormal creatures involved. I wish there had been more action and less time spent in character’s heads, but that’s a personal preference. Wes and Naomi are both stubborn, bull-headed and determined to do things their way. At times that quick to make judgment attitude got them in trouble and frustrated me. This story is full of interesting characters, some nasty villains and rules to be broken. If you enjoy a Paranormal Romance with mystery, suspense and humor then you’ll want to pick up the first book in this series and get ready for a roller coaster ride.*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*

    Kait Ballenger is a new-to-me author, so I was really excited when I got hold of her newest book! Set in the same world as her first series, Execution Underground, this series focuses on the shifters. It starts with a former bad guy hero and pairs him with a human who is ignorant of the paranormal surrounding her. I felt engaged and thrilled from the very first page, and that feeling soared through me all the way to the end.

Set in the same world as her first series, Execution Underground, this series focuses on the shifters. It starts with a former bad guy hero and pairs him with a human who is ignorant of the paranormal surrounding her. I felt engaged and thrilled from the very first page, and that feeling soared through me all the way to the end. Definitely a series to keep my eye on!Wes Calhoun is a reformed ex-member of the Wild Eight wolf pack, who are now causing trouble for his new pack, the Grey Wolves. Attempting to bring evidence to his alpha of their nefarious plans, he is injured and runs straight into a human woman with a shotgun. Naomi Evans is tired of her livestock being killed, but she is furious when she finds out her brother laid a trap to catch whatever had been doing the killing. She was hoping to deal with it in a non-violent manner. When she finds a wolf in the trap, she intends to put it out of its misery, but before she can do so, it transforms...into a man. Now she knows about a society that is forbidden to outsiders, and her safety depends on the wolf whose life she almost ended.The characters of Wes and Naomi are written really well! I enjoyed their banter, how strong and independent they each were, and their commitment to doing the right thing. As a couple, their chemistry was felt almost instantly, and I had no trouble believing that they would become closer as the story progressed. Wes was very protective of Naomi, even at the risk of his own life, and though Naomi didn't bow to his dominance very often, she partnered well with him when they worked together. Naomi was a strong, spirited woman who was not afraid to stand up for herself. There is a moment in the story where she takes down a shifter twice her size, and it was magnificent! It was inspiring and made me want to yell, "You go girl!" Even when she and Wes argued, she refused to be the weaker one and made sure he knew she was his equal. Loved it!I am so happy that this is the start of a series, because that means I get to have more of these sexy shifters! Hopefully Colt will get his book soon, as he was particularly mysterious and intriguing.**I received a free copy via NetGalley and this is my honest review.**

Formerly the packmaster of the Wild Eight pack, is now a member of the Grey Wolves pack and thanks to his trouble personality he tries to find out what the Wild Eight pack are plotting even if it risks his life and position as a member of the Grey Wolves. Through the story Wes meets a woman called Naomi and feels an instant attraction. Together they face the emerging problems.Wes is character with a dark past and when he meets Naomi he tries to make up for the evil he did and become a better man. Along the story his past actions are expose and we see a man who is convince he’s a monster but seeks to do good. Naomi is a strong female character with a strong conviction. As Wes, she feels an attraction even knowing he’s dangerous and has also some past concerns haunting her. Through bad events they get to meet, and they can’t separate, their chemistry is excellent. Despite their unique personality and many quarrels in the middle of their journey they were able to work together and succeeded. There are good characters that surround the main ones like Maverick and Colt that I think contributes to the Wes’ features, they are fair wolves who follow the rules, the opposite of Wes.Never read Kait Ballenger books but I’m a new fan. I liked this world of supernatural, the rival pack that is dangerous and vicious that tries to be the new ruler. The fact that exist other shifters and not only werewolves is interesting, usually these types of story has only werewolves, vampires and witches. It’s also interesting the existence of Execution Underground, an organization form by humans that hunt these supernatural beings. And seeing all the groups interact brings more excitement to the story.Can’t wait for the next book!I received a free copy of this book on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Wes was part of a renegade shifter pack until something happened causing him to reform from the violence, death, and destruction his former pack thrives on. When Naomi is threatened by that pack who has a new deadly collaborator which could lead to destruction for all the allied shifters, Wes decides to bring her back to his pack lands for protection despite breaking numerous rules about human and shifter relations. Naomi has struggled to maintain the ranch bequeathed by her father. Now something odd and deadly has been happening to her sheep. When she finds Wes caught in a trap on her property, her whole world is rocked by his ability to shift. As a trained biologist, Naomi knows that should not be. As they work towards a common goal, Wes and Naomi feel a strong attraction. No matter how forbidden and how much guilt he feels for the sins that stain his soul, Wes wants Naomi. The forces at work that seek to destroy the packs and rule over humans require all of Wes and Naomi’s combined skills and strength to overcome this new and powerful evil. Naomi is quite resourceful for a mere human caught up in the supernatural world. Wes has never played by the rules despite knowing the consequences of breaking them is deadly. Not only forbidden love, but courage and determination in the face of losing everything drive this tale. Since the backstory takes a while to unravel, the switch Wes had made from the enemy to the Grey Wolves pack is not quite clear at first. Fans of cowboy romance and shifter stories will likely this enjoy Western story set in the paranormal world of Montana which has a few unique twists.

I was surprised that it took a bit for me to get into this read, but once I was immersed in Wes and Naomi’s story this one was hard to put down.Wes was a darker character - his past has come back to haunt him and he sees no way for any type of redemption for himself. He’s drawn to Naomi but can’t let himself think he would be worthy of any type of happiness since he is convinced he only brings death and despair to those he gets close to. Naomi was an interesting heroine. She’s a female rancher, which is something you don’t often see. I do wish that her Native American heritage was brought into play a bit more, but perhaps we’ll see a bit more of that in future stories. These two together could definitely bring the heat, but what I enjoyed most about them was their banter and the playfulness that Naomi seemed to bring out in Wes.There was a lot going on in this book, which is typical of many first in series books that have to set the stage for the world they are creating. There were many interesting characters introduced and at times it was a lot to keep track of, but overall all the parts have laid a nice foundation for the series.Cowboy Wolf Trouble was a nice start to a new series that has me looking forward to the next book!I received an advance reader copy from the publisher via NetGalley which I voluntarily reviewed.

I was not sure what to make of Wes at first, but came to love him and I think Naomi is a perfect partner for him. A lot of the side characters really grabbed my attention too and cannot wait to see whose book comes next. It is hard building a new world and getting the readers invested in the characters and plot, but I think she did a good job of this. This is the first book in the series, so I think the books can only get better from here on out.I will be waiting to see what comes next in this series.4Stars*I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book provided by the publisher.*

But in trying to save her ranch, a run in with Wes shows her a whole different world that she never knew or even imagined was real. But now she is in the middle of the problems that are coming for Wes. This story is definitely a different take in some aspects of shifters and the lives they lead. However I had a hard time getting into it. The story itself really isn't bad, I just couldn't find the connection to the main characters. I'm not sure what didn't resonate with me though. The writing was decent, and the story will keep you involved. I just had a hard time with it. That's not to say that some people won't love it but it wasn't for me, which surprised me since I am definitely a PNR junkie. Maybe the next in the series will suck me in more. I definitely do plan to read the next to find out!

The story is well developed, with great world building and easy to follow dialogue; and Wes and Naomi’s chemistry is explosive, which only adds intensity to this intriguing story. I can’t wait for the next in this series!
