She triggers all his possessive instincts...

Turned into a shifter against his will, Ethan Connell would have died if the Lazos pack hadn't given him shelter. While he's grateful to all of them, there's one she-wolf he can't get out of his head. Sweet, sensuous Caro, who not only saved his life but sets his body on fire and triggers every possessive instinct he has. But she's made it clear she just wants friendship from him.

At first he scoffs at the idea and after months of biding his time, he makes his move. Instead of rejection, she meets him with a passion every bit as intense as his own. But Caro was burned in the past and won't admit she wants more than just a physical relationship. Ethan has no doubt that he's playing for keeps--if she'll only let him.

4 - Being friends would likely kill him but he could deal with it... For now. Stars! The fifth book in the Miami Scorcher series was a quick and sweet, friends-to-lovers read in Savannah Stuart/Katie Reus usual stellar high quality writing standards. You have been introduced to Ethan and Caro through previous books in the series, Ethan is an anomaly in that he has been turned into a Werewolf through human experimentation and not through birth, whereas Caro has been a shifter for hundreds of years. She was the best friend he’d ever had and he didn’t want to screw that up. Caro having been badly hurt in the past, is very wary of getting her heart hurt again, so when Ethan indicates he is interested in her, she immediately insists they stay in the friend zone, but as the months pass and that friendship grows she starts to wonder if they could be more… "You want me…" "So?" "So… what are we going to do about it?" "You’re my friend, Ethan..." "Duck being friends. I’ve never wanted just that from you. You know that." This was an easy read, nothing particularly new or different with the plot, but Ethan was sweet and attentive, and Caro wasn’t shy to take what she wanted once she had moved on from her past hurts. "I’m not playing games and I’m not letting you go." You get a bit of interaction with the rest of the Lazos Pack as well and I hope we get more stories at some point in the future from some of the secondary pack members as well. ARC generously provided, in exchange for the above honest review.

DESIRE UNLEASHED is the fifth installment in Savannah Stuart’s (aka Katie Reus) adult Miami Scorcher paranormal romance novella series focusing on the Lazos Wolf Pack of Miami Florida. This is human turned shifter Ethan Connell, and Caro’s storyline. DESIRE UNLEASHED can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Told from dual third person perspectives DESIRE UNLEASHED focuses on the building relationship between Caro and Ethan, and Caro’s need to keep Ethan at a distance fearing heartbreak and betrayal. Ethan is a made wolf- the result of an experiment that eventually decimated Paz and Marisol’s Pack (Worth the Risk #2) leaving Ethan, a once respected soldier and security consultant, a shifter without a without guidance or support. Throughout the previous year Ethan has been welcomed into the Lazos Pack, guided through his numerous shifts, and found himself looking for mate in the quiet but beautiful Caro who offered friendship and nothing more. As Ethan bided his time his inner wolf needed to claim Caro as his own but Caro struggles with a past mired in heartbreak and loss. The relationship between Caro and Ethan is slow to build but the reader is only witness to recent events wherein Ethan tries to convince Caro that she is the one. A couple of hiccups finds Ethan’s wolf demanding he claim his mate; the $ex scenes are erotic and intense. The world building remained focused on the storyline couple; the outside conflict was resolved rather quickly and was nothing more than a blip on the radar. There was no building of suspense or mystery; Caro’s past comes back looking for a second chance. DESIRE UNLEASHED is a fast paced storyline that concludes the Miami Scorcher series but I thought it fell short in grabbing my attention-the excitement level was less than expected-I wanted to read more about Ethan’s backstory and the year since his imprisonment as he acclimated into a shifting wolf. A disappointing end to an exciting shifter series.

Desire Unleashed is a quick hot read that finishes off the Miami Scorcher series very nicely. I found Ethan’s character rather intriguing. When he was first introduced into the series a few books back as a man-made shifter I was wondering what would happen to him. I’m happy to see he was not created into a monster. Caro is such a sweet character. I’m glad to see they both got their HEA with each other. I had this sweet smoldering book read in under an hour. I look forward to reading more from author Savannah Stuart. I received this book from JeepDiva in exchange for my honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated. Stars – 3 Flames - 3

Review by Robin: Ms. Stuart takes us to man-made werewolf vs. handed down through the bloodlines werewolf. Will it be a happily-ever-after? Ethan Connell is injected with wolf blood which makes him turn. He didn't ask for this to happen but it did and if not for Caro finding him and her pack the Lazos taking him in he would have died. They taught him all that there is about being a werewolf. Nathan has fallen for Caro, but she feels it is mostly gratitude. But to Nathan this she-wolf is very sensuous and the one he wants to have as his mate. They decide to be friends and every Friday for the last six months they have a standing 'date', movie and popcorn. But as with most friendships things change over the course of the relationship and this is no different for these two wolves. As things turn to passion and it starts to heat up. Ethan knows he wants to mark her as his mate but can he convince Caro of that fact? This is a nice story for that lunchtime break. But be warned.you just might want more.
