– 3.5 Savage Hunger Stars –

Savage Hunger is book one in Heart of the Jaguar series by Terry Spear. This is a re-read for me. I enjoy reading Ms. Spear’s books. I will say I was not as drawn into the story as the first time around, but I still enjoyed the read. We get a sweet romance with a little action.

Connor, Jaguar shifter. Him and his sister Maya where abandoned as kids and don’t know a lot about the Jaguar shifter world which leaves them not to sure if they can change someone into a Jaguar or how it all works. They have stayed together and both want a stable family. In comes Kathleen, human, whom Connor has not been able to get off his mind since he rescued her. I like Connor and Maya, but as for Kathleen I did not get the military vibe off her. She hesitated to shot a bad guy and she came across as not knowing what to do. Maya I really enjoyed. She brings in a very sisterly feel and love to the story, plus she is determined to get her bother hooked-up. The characters for the most part are well developed and interesting aside from my one issue with Kathleen. The story progresses fast, with some action and wonderful hot steamy sex. 

I find myself re-reading this type of book when I don’t need to use a lot of brainpower to follow a story. I like the easiness of the read and the fun shifter feel to the story.
