Series: Crescent Moon #2
Author: Savannah Stuart
Blurb: She thought the house was empty when she broke in…
When jaguar shifter Lauren Hayes breaks into an alpha’s home to steal back what rightfully belongs to her pride, she doesn’t expect to be tackled by Max McCray, second-in-command of the Kincaid wolf pack. As punishment for her crime the sexy wolf shifter demands that she stay with him for one week. Knowing she’ll start a war between her pride and his pack if she doesn’t, she has no other choice but to agree, even if the thought of being near him 24/7 makes her scared that she won’t be able to hide her growing attraction to him.
Now he has a week to make her his…
Max has waited months to make a move on the sexy jaguar shifter and now that she’s broken shifter rules, he’s not letting her go. He doesn’t care that he’s a wolf and she’s a jaguar, claiming her forever is the only thing that matters. Unfortunately, not everyone likes the idea of him being with a feline shifter. Max is forced to choose sides between Lauren and members of the pack he’s sworn allegiance to in order to protect the woman he knows is his destined mate.
Thoughts: I love this series by Savannah Stuart – they are quick, fast paced, shifter tales featuring hot, sexy alphas looking to claim their mates. If you love books with shifters, you can’t go wrong with this series. Stuart has a talent for writing strong shifter stories, and I have a tendency to pick them up without even bothering to read the blurb anymore – I know they are going to be good!
This one features Lauren – a jaguar shifter – who has decided to break into the alpha of the Kincaid wolf pack’s home to steal back a necklace that used to belong to her family – a necklace she wants to be able to gift back to her sister for her wedding. Max has already waited months to claim the jaguar – unfortunately, he got held up by his mother’s death and other events – but seeing her break into his alpha’s home gives him just the excuse he needs to keep her right where he wants her – close to him!
I loved the chemistry between these two and the story, but to be honest I love Stuart’s writing. There are plenty of shifter books out there, and even some along the same lines. And while I love the storyline – the distinction for me is Stuart’s writing. That is what really sets it apart.
