Fierce Hearts, #2

Kennedy is a were-lynx that was being used for experimenting. Now in a new colony with a brother she didn’t know existed, she must learn to trust herself and her new family unit. Asher Monroe keeps her heart racing with anxiety and anticipation. Despite the attraction Asher and Kennedy have, they don’t trust each other. So how can they build a relationship with such suspicion and hurt from their pasts?

This sci-fi romance was interesting, but there was so little romance between the action scenes that I began to get bored with Asher and Kennedy’s relationship. It started off very appealing with sci-fi elements but it became an overwhelming theme. The group chasing Kennedy became the forefront of the story and the budding relationship fell to the back.

Therefore, I didn’t sense that Kennedy and Asher were so attracted to each other because too much was going on. There wasn’t as much time for dates and bonding time that would get me, as a reader to be invested in the relationship. The plot showed great potential and the author has good writing skills. If you enjoy reading paranormal and sci-fi books that are not focused heavily on romance, this may be a good read for you.

Book Blurb for Cravings

Were-lynx Kennedy's world implodes when she's sent to a facility for illegal and torturous experimentation. Only after she's rescued does she learn she's been living a lie for 22 years. She can count on nothing from her past - not her parents, her surname, or her safety. Only the brother she didn't know and his colony of were-lynxes offer any semblance of stability. Suspicious of everyone and unsure of her path forward, Kennedy reluctantly starts to realize that charming were-bobcat Asher Monroe might be her only hope.

Sportswriter Asher has been trying desperately to ferret out the truth behind why the sinister Nexus Group has been kidnapping and experimenting on were-cats. But he's also willing to use his special mind-controlling ability to discover whether the gorgeous Kennedy is a threat to the colony or simply a lost soul.

As their need for the truth takes them into escalating danger, they discover explosive secrets that could bring Kennedy and Asher together - or rip them apart forever.
