Kylie Moore has a secret, one she and her adoptive father have carefully guarded for over a decade since the night her parents disappeared.

    UGH. I dislike serials. I dislike serials that don't indicate they are serials even more. This one was particularly frustrating. As soon as the story actually progresses beyond world building, it ends. Just ends. This is NOT a complete book, despite it's presentation as one. In order to be a book, you need a beginning, a middle and an end. This has a beginning and the start of a middle. The world building isn't the best.

In order to be a book, you need a beginning, a middle and an end. This has a beginning and the start of a middle. The world building isn't the best. I think the author made a lot of assumptions about what the reader would understand. And both the hero and heroine are hiding so many secrets, not just from each other but also from the reader, that it was confusing to try to follow. There was, of course, the almost obligatory shifter-mating sex scenes, which were actually pretty interesting, but rather out of place. This also needs a read-through from an editor. One of the first conversations the hero and heroine have is about the heroine's college major...and then towards the end of the book, the hero turns to the heroine and says he never asked what she was majoring in. A good editor would have caught a mistake like that. I can only assume there are others - as I said, there is so much the characters are keeping from the reader that it's a rather convoluted story that is hard to follow. I wanted to like this one, and there are definitely aspects that I found fascinating - such as the BIG REVEAL at the end - but I won't be continuing this series. I felt almost no connection to the characters because we know almost nothing about them, other than the superficial. I do recommend this one to those who like really hot shifter mating.

Getting killed by a serial killer was not in their plans. Getting caught mid-escape by another shifter was not in their plans either. Hunter is thrilled to find a Returned One as is his clan. All Kylie wants is answers and then to escape into obscurity. Hunter and his clan have other ideas. The biggest complication Kylie has is that she has gone into heat and everyone is answering the call. Let me begin with this is the first novella in a four part series and according to Cristina Rayne’s Goodreads page, these are not standalone reads. It is a very good thing for Rayne that the first novella Transformation (2014) “Riverford Shifters” story arc in the “Tempted by the Jaguar” series is one to sink your teeth into. I did not guess the ending at all which is fabulous. Kylie’s character is sympathetic and mysterious at the same time. Her chemistry with Hunter is fantastic and as they both agree untimely. The sub characters are intriguing and I hope we see more of them in the upcoming novellas. I do not want to say too much as this is a novella. I am hooked and I cannot wait to read the rest.

    I went into to this not know what to expect since this is my first back by this author and it was a freebie when I got it on Amazon.com. I am so glad that I read it though. Kylie is a shifter, but she is a shifter with secrets. On the night when she first shifts (I am assuming this was the first time since it is still a lot of secrecy around her and her family) she was kidnapped and about be attacked in a much harsher way.

That allowed her inner cat to make an appearance to keep her out of harms way. This all happens in Hunter's territory. Now Hunter is tasked with convincing her to meet with the Elders and helping her learn the laws of the shifters. This book is pretty action packed from the start. One thing after the other happens and you don't know what to expect next. While all this is happening there is still the mystery of what Kylie is actually hiding, what happened to her parents, what happened to Hunter's brother, why did Paul toothbrush help her in her "dire" situation, what are the mating rituals like for these shifters (can they just mate with whomever or do they have one true mate)? Some of them where just questions I had and had nothing to do with the real mysteries in this story.

    A Different Paranormal Take I enjoyed this paranormal story because it presented most of the usual life of what their lives would be like. This author presented some aspects of their behavior and conditions that were more prominent for these groups than the usual stories emphasized by other authors. Mating frenzy for instance, presented here as a very widespread epidemic response, even cross-species. That was a new and fresh presentation for me, and I've been reading paranormal tales forever.

    She gets kidnapped and shifts into a jaguar under the stress, almost gutting her kidnapper. Found by a jaguar shifter before she killed her kidnapper, she is now in the position of a new member of the local jaguar clan, will she, won't she. More problems ensue over the next days, ending with her shifting again to protect a wounded wolf shifter and her new boyfriend, the jaguar that found her. Unfortunately, she did not shift into a jaguar this time, and this is where the story ends. A cliffhanger She gets kidnapped and shifts into a jaguar under the stress, almost gutting her kidnapper.

    I like how the book just starts out with action then catches you up with history of characters, setting, details etc., but was sad at the end where it leaves you in the middle of the action and just ends. Talk about a cliffhanger It's a typical romance story line where boy meets girl, they both fight their attractions with, then eventually get together, but a little different than other shifter stories. Some of the frustrations between the main characters is obvious/cliche but overall the story I like how the book just starts out with action then catches you up with history of characters, setting, details etc., but was sad at the end where it leaves you in the middle of the action and just ends.

    Too much for me I really wanted to finish this book, but I gave up at about sixty percent. Too many layers of mystery for too many characters. It was getting more and more difficult to follow who was hiding what from whom. the characters are well written - at least the female lead is well defined. I simply couldn’t get on board with all her secrets and constantly emerging skills and abilities. Maybe it was a concentration problem for me...I don’t know. I do know I just didn’t want to invest any m Too much for me I really wanted to finish this book, but I gave up at about sixty percent. Too many layers of mystery for too many characters.

    Kept my interest I liked the writing and characters. The story gives away just enough to keep you guessing. The story ends in a cliffhanger. Kylie wants to find her parents who disappeared years ago. She has been very careful up until she is kidnapped and her fear forces her change. Hunter shows up just in time to stop her from shredding her assailant. From there, it is a chore gor Kylie to keep her wits and her secrets. This is an adult read with language and scenes. The pacing fits the story

    Interesting story of a young woman who turnout to be a shifter. Kylie must guard her secret while in the company of a jaguar. Lions have infiltrated the city and the other shifter clans do not like it. Hunter finds Kylie after her first shift as a jaguar, but it appears at the end of the story that she is able to shift to not more than one shifter. Her parents were. Able to do the same b fore they were killed.

    I fell in love with this book. I liked so much I bought all books available. It was one of my "free" books that end up costing me more. It did end as a cliffhanger. It's so different from what I've read in the shifter world and I read a lot of shifter romance. It just hooked me and I can't put the nest book in series down. For me an awesome series.

    Started off so good I enjoyed the story and the characters up to the end of the book. Unfortunately, the book is a cliff hanger. I love series, and don't mind when the books build on the previous books. But to get to the end of a book and simply stop in the middle of a scene is extremely frustrating. I feel manipulated by the author and will not continue this series. Started off so good I enjoyed the story and the characters up to the end of the book. Unfortunately, the book is a cliff hanger.

    The secrets that she keeps Kylie has secrets and Hunter has discovered one that she can turn into a jaguar shifter like him. Hunter has to take Kylie to the Elders as she has revealed herself to a human admittedly to protect herself but there are rules. What other secrets does she have? Readers should enjoy this book which I highly recommend.

    This series is an interesting paranormal series. I was thrown off track a couple of times during the beginning of this book. It did draw me in and get me hooked. Warning this is a 5 book series not to be read individually.

    Kylie and Hunter Excellent story! Kylie’s kidnapping forces her hand—or paws—and she shifts in public. Hunter is assigned to her. Hiding her true nature has never been harder. This story will keep you on your toes and the cliffhanger is a nail-biter!

    Cliffhanger So this book is a cliffhanger. If you read the first one you have to purchase the second one to continue the story. I am not fond of cliffhanger books at all. So honestly I can't recommend this book to anybody. Cliffhanger So this book is a cliffhanger. If you read the first one you have to purchase the second one to continue the story.

    Cliffhanger UGH This was interesting, entertaining and the characters were likeable but its not a complete storyline so it's kind of disappointing. It's worth looking for the next book but hopefully it's not going to take a bunch of books to get to a HEA.

    Interesting book. I enjoyed most of it. I dislike cliffhangers. I made the mistake of reading a review on amazon of the next book. the person kinda ruined it for me. If there are spoilers I like a heads up. I might still read the book at a later date.

Now I'm looking forward to the next book. Highly recommend reading. Tempted by the Jaguar Great reading. Such interesting shifter reading. How do they not know what they are is what surprises me.
