I’ve always been fascinated by jaguars (the cat, not the car). Their sleek bodies, the way they move – jaguars are the ultimate predators of the jungle. So when the opportunity to read Jaguar Fever by Terry Spear presented itself, I jumped at the chance. I enjoyed Ms. Spear’s Heart of the Wolf series, so I knew that I would be in for a treat.
Jaguar Fever is the second book in Ms. Spear’s Heart of the Jaguar series. Don’t let this put you off if you are an “OCD must read series in order” type of reader. All of Ms. Spear’s books can be read as standalone books – you can even jump around in her series without feeling lost.
Jaguar Fever is a sexy story with an environmentalist slant. It seems that someone is smuggling jaguars from their natural habitats (and even zoos) and using the poor creatures as target practice for a rich man’s safari hunt. Wade and David Patterson are investigating the case at the Jungle Cat Fever Club, an aptly named jaguar shifter club. At the club, Wade meets Maya and is instantly smitten. Maya plays hard to get. She’s not really ready for commitments.
Once the mating dance filled with misunderstandings, alpha caveman moments, and dangerous situations is done, Maya and Wade are sizzling hot together. By the way, Ms. Spears writes some pretty hot sexy scenes. *fans self*
I think that I’d like to explore the resort in Belize where Maya, her brother Conner, and his pregnant mate Kat stayed at. It sounds absolutely heavenly, and perfect for cats.
Jaguar Fever was an enjoyable read for me. The last third of the book was action-packed, edge of your seat exciting. I can’t wait for more books in this series!
