Blurb: A simple request for Siena Arnotto: deliver a gift to her grandfather’s friend. One look at Elijah Lospostos, hard-bodied and stripped to the waist, and Siena succumbs to a feline stirring she never felt before, and to Elijah’s reckless and pleasurable demands. But when that pulse-throbbing moment ends in the murder of an unexpected intruder, Elijah accuses the shaken and confused Siena of setting him up.
Then Siena discovers the truth of her Leopard heritage, of the secrets in her grandfather’s inner circle, and the sinister plot of revenge that has put her in jeopardy. When Siena’s grandfather is assassinated, she realizes the only man she can trust is Elijah. Now as her Leopard rises from within, Siena and Elijah share not only an animal instinct for survival—but a desire so raw and wild it may be the only thing that can save them.
Review: Well, I’ve read this twice, the first time before I started reviewing Christine Feehan books so, I left this one without a review but I did give it five stars. “Wait Sam, if you gave this five stars, why are there two?” you might ask. Well, the five stars are from when I read it the first time and the second time, I had a different opinion about it.
I would have to guess that I was just so excited about Elijah’s book that I just kind of looked past everything. Looking at my first book journal, I didn’t really say anything about the book so I will just go off the review I wrote in another journal.
This is not the 5-star book I thought it was. Elijah was not what I expected and I can’t recall what I really thought about him but I can say that I was disappointed when I read this book again. He just seemed hot and cold and while I can understand his thinking, I just felt like he was overreacting. Maybe he should take the advice he’d been giving Siena and put his feelings behind him? She’s staying, move on.
One thing I really got sick of was the sex.
Thank you, Dr. House, my thoughts exactly. It just seemed the only time they kept their hands off of each other was when she was in the hospital. Every time they had a conversation, take the clothes off, every time they had an argument, take the clothes off. I get it, it’s an adult paranormal romance but still, that was just excessive.
One of the things I really liked was that the readers got to see Alonzo before his book, it kind of paved the way for it, we got to know him a little more instead of as a nearly invisible background character.
Another thing I really like, the cover. I honestly think it’s the best out of the Leopard People books but the model didn’t match the description. She has board straight hair so when the character was described as having hard to control, wavy hair and wishing she had straight hair, it was hard to see.
The writing wasn’t as good here, either that or it was just all of the sex taking away from the story but I didn’t get captured here like I did in past books.
Thank you for reading my review.
