LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Savage Hunger

Submitted by MichelleLOlson on October 5, 2012 - 11:51am.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

*ARC received from NetGalley.

I'm a huge fan of Terry's HEART OF THE WOLF series, and one of my favorite Supe Groups is easily the big cat shifters, so when I heard that Terry was coming out with her new HEART OF THE JAGUAR series I was very excited to see what she had in store.

Savage Hunger is the 1st installment of the HEART OF THE JAGUAR series, and while I didn't find this first book as action packed as Terry's HEART OF THE WOLF books, it was a pleasant, light-hearted and enjoyable read.

Connor is a Nursery owner and jaguar shifter. He's not an uber macho alpha male. He's more the type of guy you'd want to meet and marry - sensitive, strong, possessive without being overbearing, and family oriented.

Kat is a black-ops military Captain. She's a strong confident female who has a fascination with the Amazon rainforests and jaguars in general. She's a bit scarred though and has a few issues to work through.

The two meet in the worst possible of circumstances and are forced to go their separate ways afterward. Neither can forget the other, however, and after trying several different avenues to track Connor down again, Kat finds him back in the rainforest with his sister Maya.

They are thrown together by danger again and this time it's for keeps. Maya realizes the potential Kat presents as a mate for her brother and decides to become matchmaker, though she doesn't have to try real hard because there's already some heady chemistry between the pair.

Savage Hunger offers up drama, tons of emotion, and some pretty intense romance.

LITERAL ADDICTION gives Savage Hunger 4 Skulls and is excited to see what Terry brings us with book #2 of the series.
