My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received this novel to review from Netgalley and was very excited to get a chance to read it. Terry Spear has vastly become one of my favorite shifter romance authors and her new Jaguar series is fantastic.
An agent and a jaguar-shifter chase trouble, and each other, through the jungles of Belize
Agent Tammy Anderson has a reputation: she prefers to work alone. So when she's paired up on a mission with jaguar-shifter David Patterson-who's only recently been released from jail-to say she's less than thrilled is a understatement. Until she realizes that this sexy agent has what it takes...
Soon, what started as an "easy" mission to locate a missing jaguar takes the pair to Belize, where they're chasing down two renegade teen shifters who know more than they're telling. As the action heats up, can they keep their minds on the job and off each other?
As usual Terry Spear has built her storyline with solid and likable characters. They are off on an interesting adventure trying to help both a missing jaguar and some teens who may have been gotten caught up in the mess. Tammy is a strong willed and independent female who does her job and doesn't want to be strapped down with a partner. David is an equally strong willed man who learns to admire and trust his new female partner. As the mystery unravels and passion ignites you will find it hard to pull yourself from the pages of this one!
“Good night.” David closed his eyes, but he couldn’t stop taking in deep breaths of her jasmine soap and she-cat scent mixed into one delightful fragrance. He couldn’t ignore the beat of her heart - or his - that told him he was way too turned on, and that she was feeling the same way. He couldn’t help feeling the heat of her body and wanting to ratchet it up a few degrees, starting with a kiss.
A kiss. Hell, he’d never gone to bed with a woman when it meant total hands off. But lips...they didn’t count, did they?
She’d closed her eyes, but she wasn’t sleeping. She hadn’t pulled away from him, giving him her back. That meant something. Didn’t it?
He could ask. And she could say no.
He could kiss her, and when she got ready to slap him, he’d tell her it was a good-night kiss. And it would be. Unless she wanted more.
He could get lucky and she’d kiss him back.
Somehow it didn’t seem right to go to bed with a woman and not at least kiss her good night.
She opened her eyes to see him looking down at her - well, he was judging her lips, but when they curved up a bit, he lifted his gaze to meet her eyes and saw she was watching him.
“What?” she asked.
He couldn’t say it. David Patterson, who had no trouble interesting women in kisses and so much more, couldn’t say it.
“Don’t...tell...me. You want a good-night kiss,” she said, but he wasn’t certain whether she was offering or...not.
Not about to lose the opportunity, he placed his hand under her chin, lifted her face, and waited only the briefest period for her to pull away if she wasn’t in the mood for this. When she didn’t, he leaned down and kissed her mouth.
