Jaguar Hunt, Terry Spear
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
Shifter Romance, another lure for me. I’ve just been re reading my way through Patricia Briggs werewolf series….fantastic 🙂 so thought this sounded promising. Although I’ve not read the first two it sounded as though each story was complete, so I didn’t foresee that being a problem and it wasn’t. Maybe some of the interlinked characters I could have understood more, but Terry gives enough info to work out who is connected to whom.
And those connections were part of the problems for me. The characters themselves were great, felt real and acted as I’d expect. And the heat between Tammy and David was very sensual and palpable. But as the story got into the final third there seemed to me to be more and more connections through past and present relationships, and the difficulties that brought. I know shifters are known in most fiction for being very sexual, but these ones seemed to have had endless relationships within the groups… each time a new problem came up it seemed to have some roots in a past/present relationship problem, each new character seemed to have a past relationship with one of the agents. Just too convenient for me.
Although the characters were great and the setting amazing ( I really felt I was there in that steamy jungle setting) the plot felt a bit “off” to me. Unless the stolen/missing jaguar was incredibly rare or something, why on earth were so many very expensive, very exclusive top agents put onto the search for it. Usually a crime like that would make a police report, a couple of local cops sent to take statements and investigate background, and that would be most that was done. Along with the hunt for the teens, I lost count of just how many agents ended up in the searches. It seemed all those involved who were not agents were either ex agents, or had relationship with one ( or more!) of them. It all seemed a little too close connected for me.
A fun, steamy read, heat from Tammy and David as well as the jungle! If you can get past that over close connections bit, and the improbability of the main plot then you’ll enjoy this. Its well written, and as I said earlier, characters and settings are very good. Its just a one off read for me though 😦 I just got too hung up on those points. It’s fairly priced at £3.08 for 321 pages on kindle.
Stars: three, a well written book but plot let it down for me

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
