Review - Savage Hunger

Ex-soldier Kat McKnight owes a debt of gratitude to the mysterious man who saved her life in the Amazon jungle. She wants to say 'thank you' for his timely intervention. But when she gets lost in the Amazon jungle while looking for him, her rescuer this time is a huge jaguar.

Connor Anderson can never forget the woman soldier who was on a mission to take down a group of Amazonian drug dealers and who almost lost her life when her mission went bottom up. But here she is wondering around the jungle all by herself and he's in his jaguar form. There are a thousand ways to get killed in the Amazon and he wants to make sure Kat doesn't find one of them. He doesn't count on his sister, Maya, scratching Kat to turn her into a jaguar shifter herself.

Kat has a lot of baggage from her time in foster homes and her Army service. She's always wanted a family and now she has one. She has night terrors and she sleepwalks. But Connor is the kind of man who will step up, not run away. And as far as he's concerned, Kat is his.

But Kat has enemies. Those drug dealers haven't forgotten her. They want her and they mean to have her.

The question is…who will win? Connor and Kat? Or the bad guys?

The characters just leap off the page in this book. Connor is adorable (if you can call an alpha male/jaguar shifter adorable) and Kat is no push over even if she does fall for Connor pretty quick (but then, who wouldn't?). Even Maya, Connor's sister is memorable. She's feisty, determined and kind. The bad guys are guaranteed to raise the hair on the back of your neck.

The plot will keep you on the edge of your seat, making you want to read it till the wee hours of the morning. So if you have to go to work the next day, start reading early.

All in all, this is a wonderfully crafted, action packed, love story with sizzling love scenes. I definitely recommend it.
