Jenny Lincoln is running her grandfather’s big cat rescue and needs money fast in order to stay open. When she gets asked to go to an exclusive shifter club in exchange for a donor’s money, she goes, never anticipating her world will change or that love will follow.

Noah doesn’t want to be intrigued by Jenny, to fall in love with her, to dream of a future. Noah is afraid to commit to any relationship and as he and Jenny fall in love, things are revealed even as their lust blazes out of control.

FERAL is a story that I just could not get into. It started off intriguing, with the back story of Noah and with the hero and heroine fighting their feelings for one another but it went into something quite confusing midway. That is when it changed into something I just couldn’t follow nor enjoy. I had to put this book down more than once as the way the heroine, Jenny acted was like a total one-eighty turn. She came off in the beginning as innocent, inexperienced in the beginning but then she goes to this club and all her fantasies come out with little to no prompting. That was one part that had me growling at the book more than once. Noah liked the chase, the thrill of conquering someone but in my opinion the author didn’t know what to do with these two. First they didn’t love one another, then one did but the other didn’t, and on it went…page after page. It got really old, really quick. Plus there were a few secondary characters that felt like fillers and had me scratching my head in confusion on why they were there in the first place.

FERAL seems to be a combination of a few different paranormal genres and mashed together as the author couldn’t decide which way to go in the story. It didn’t work that well in my opinion. The characters were weak and kept me from enjoying them, the storyline was very hard to get into and there were a few scenes that made no sense to the story at all and in the process, turned me off completely.  I think those who enjoy a mash up of paranormal genres, might enjoy this book. I just couldn’t get into it.
