I started out wanting to like this book. Hot and mysterious shifter in the middle of the Amazon falls in love with archaeologist there on assignment. She doesn’t have a lot of self esteem and can’t believe he has any real interest in her. The plot with a bit of Indiana Jones feel. Should be good, right?Well, I was interested only at the beginning of the book. The book starts off with a fire caused by Adriano’s own people. A setup. He gets blamed for the deaths of a bunch of people and is exiled. Now he wants to buy his way back, and the only way to do that is finding this artifact.

He is looking for it at the same time as he is “working” as a security guard at an archaeology research site, where he meets Sophie. Of course she’s human, and he shouldn’t feel any attraction to a human. But he can’t stay away from her. Animal magnetism? Pretty much.

Now after they end up going on this kind of magical trip to save themselves and find the artifact, the book loses me. It got a bit too far-fetched and I couldn’t find the interest in either the outcome of the story, or the characters.

The sex? Yeah, that was pretty good. But I’d rather have a bit something more than just that. Overall I’d say I was a bit disappointed.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
