When tragedy strikes, Melissa is left responsible to care for a whole family. Desperate times call for desperate measures. As if working in a strip club isn’t dangerous enough, she decides to moonlight for the sake of the poor and needy in the community, including her family. Add in a persistent cop who wants her to snitch and a notorious drug dealer who wants to bed her and she’s in over her head.

Vince, Logan, Sunny, Frankie and Jake are wolves and SWAT team officers. While out at a club, they meet their mate, and she’s one sexy little dancer. She avoids them, but they remain determined. When they pick up her scent near a drug factory they raid, they assume that she’s a criminal in their current investigation. They locate, handcuff and arrest her, and then they bring her back to their place to initiate their version of interrogation. By the time they’re finished, she’ll be begging for their touch.

If you’re going to rob from the rich to feed the poor be sure the drug dealing wolf you’re stealing from is an animal in name only and not a true beast!

Melissa (Mel to her friends) has an amazing heart for those in need, to the point of endangering her own life to provide for her orphaned nieces and nephew, a sick aunt and a whole slew of friends and neighbors that just need a helping hand. She has spent the last several years taking care of others and never suspected there would be one much less five men who wanted to spend every waking hour taking care of and loving her. The chemistry between Melissa and the Valdamar brothers is instant and scorching hot.

One of the aspects of the ST2 story that kept me reading, besides the great characters and terrific plot, was that even though the men are Alpha to the max they don’t try to immediately force Melissa to bend to their way of life. They realize that she has a job and is even studying for a law degree. In many dominate male type stories the heroine is expected to give up the life she’s built to be with the man (or men). I liked that the Valdamar brothers were able to appreciate that Melissa was intelligent and encouraged her to pursue her dreams.

SWAT Team 2 is the second book in the Men of Five-0 series for Ms. Dwyer. Each book is full length story where the readers are introduced to a new group of wolf shifting men who find and win their mate. Ms. Dwyer does a superb job of building a solid plot, multi-facetted characters and emotionally charged romance between the men and their fated mate.

The Men of Five-0 series is part of Siren Publishing’s Love Xtreme line but is different from the other series in that each book is a stand- alone story. You’ll notice characters from the other books mentioned so it helps to have read the other books but not at all necessary. I think after you’ve read one in will be hard not to go back and read the others, though. Ms. Dwyer is a wonderful story teller and an automatic buy for this reviewer.

If you love a fast paced paranormal that will have you reaching for a fan while holding your breath…you won’t want to miss SWAT Team 2 and Miss Robin Hood. Ms. Dwyer gives us a tantalizing tease of two more SWAT Team books within the pages of ST2. That’s awesome news for fangirls like me. Pick up your copy of SWAT Team 2 today and see just how good the odds of five to one can be!
