Savage Hunger is the first installment of the Heart of the Jaguar series. This is my first Terry Spear book and my first Jaguar Shifter story. I have to admit I am intrigued. This book is suspenseful, fast pace and has a captivating romance with a good plot.Connor Anderson and his Sister Maya are Jaguar Shifters who visits the Amazon yearly to enjoy the forest and let their jaguar half enjoy its native environment. One summer, Connor comes across an incident between military and the drug cartels. He is forced to intervene, save the life of a woman in danger. A woman that later will change his life of solitude.Retired Army Captain, Kathleen McKnight is back in the Amazon in search of the one man who rescued her from an unexpected ambush a year before. Now out of the army and experiencing PTSD, she thinks finding her savior will help her overcome this problem. What she finds in the Amazon forest is more than what she had expected in a million years.
Connor and Kathleen created steamy scenes in the depths of the Amazon forest. I loved their chemistry together and the sexual tension between them was strong. Although there was an Insta-love between them it easy to accept and over look because, well, Connor was just so entranced with Kat that claiming her was just inevitable.
I especially loved Kathleen. She’s was in the military and that just puts her in the “kick ass heroine” category in my book. I like to see heroines who can handle her own in a fight. My only complain about her is her acceptance of her situation that Maya had created. She did not have a sense of anger or even a twinge of “WTF” moment from what Maya had done. Though it was with good intentions, the little sister needed some butt spanking.
I’m not sure what Ms. Spear has installed for this series, but I’m hoping Maya will have her HEA. I think she deserves it after being stuck and living with her brother all this time.Overall, Savage Hunger was an enjoyable read. It was fast paced and well written. I can’t wait to know more of these Jaguar Shifters.
