Review: Wolf in Sheep's Clothing (Big Bad Wolf, #4) by Charlie Adhara

Agent Cooper Dayton and his partner, Oliver Park, are going undercover—at a retreat for couples who need counseling. They do say the best cover story is one that’s close to the truth…

Agent Cooper Dayton is almost relieved to get a phone call from his former boss at the Bureau of Special Investigations. It means a temporary reprieve from tensions created by house hunting with Oliver Park, his partner both in work and in life. Living together in a forever home is exactly what Cooper wants. He’s just not keen on working out the details.

With a former alpha werewolf missing, Cooper and Park are loaned to the BSI to conduct the search at a secluded mountain retreat. The agents will travel to the resort undercover…as a couple in need of counseling.

The resort is picturesque, the grounds are stunning and the staff members are all suspicious as hell.

With a long list of suspects and danger lurking around every cabin, Cooper should be focusing on the case. But he’s always been anxious about the power dynamics in his relationship with Park, and participating in the couples’ activities at the retreat brings it all to the surface. A storm is brewing, though, and Cooper and Park must rush to solve the case before the weather turns. Or before any more guests—or the agents themselves—end up dead.

For a series that I started off so-so on it sure has turned around. Now it's Sophie's Choice difficult to say whether this one or Thrown to the Wolves is my favorite. Luckily I don't have to choose!

Charlie Adhara has built these characters from the ground up, made them not just multi-dimensional but shown their growth as characters, specifically Cooper. He and Park make each other a better version of themselves which is something that appeals to me as a romance reader.

While they have always had an almost elemental chemistry with one another, the longer they are together, the closer they become, the more they trust each other deepens and enriches that chemistry oftentimes in creative and delightfully depraved ways. Evidenced here in the power dynamic between them which is wholly unique and captivating, something I've never experienced before. Though not to be undersold is their banter. The connection they share has fostered the comical and droll aspects of their personalities and allowed that playfulness to shine.

Lastly, this case not only kept me guessing til the end but the whole alpha thing I found both surprising and fascinating. 

I'm so grateful I didn't give up on Cooper and Park because they have turned into one of my favorite couples, so I was thrilled to learn there will be another installment in 2021!

Get your popcorn ready, people! Prepare to be entertained, maybe be a bit puzzled from time to time and for the swooning.

Highly recommended especially to fans of the series and if you haven't yet started it, what are you waiting for?
