4.5 - "I hate dogs..." Stars! The first book in the Miami Scorcher series, sets things off really well in that it the story was pretty scorching between Nick and Carly and it was a really great opener to the Lazos Pack dynamic in general. I think Nick Lazos may be my most favorite hero that Katie has written so far, there was just something about him, he was sweet, sinful and growly-alpha in equal measure, and although this book is all about the ‘insta’ connection it worked, because of the whole ‘shifters-mate-for-life’ thing. He knew she was his mate… He could hear and feel she was. Only problem being is that Carly is human, and not a huge fan of man’s best friend, so falling for a werewolf… even though she doesn’t know that he is initially, poses a whole host of problems for Nick. She was falling for him so fast and it was a little terrifying… Bearing in mind I read books two through to four in this series before this one, it’s safe to say that they can be read out of order and as standalones', and as usual the author delivered a quick sexy and well-rounded read. ARC generously provided, in exchange for the above honest review.

Three dollars for less than 100 pages is too much

It was ok - Fast and read-in-one-sitting story that tells us of a human girl that falls for her new boss that also happens to be a shifter. Somewhat different from what I normally read but entertaining nonetheless. I wouldn’t exactly call this one romance as it was more insta-lust due to a mating link and aside from the usual both of them being caring, loyal, and super hot and sexy, there aren’t more given reasons as to why they fell in love. As it is, it was more erotic romance than plain and simple romance. There are more sex scenes than there is story around the two and although we get to meet other characters and we’re introduced to his paranormal world, in the end it felt a bit inconclusive. Not exactly my cup of tea but it deserves bonus points for setting up a good arc for what has the potential of a good series. 3 ½ stars. *** I received a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review ***

3.75 stars---UNLEASHED TEMPTATION is the first installment in Savannah Stuart’s (aka Katie Reus) adult, contemporary Miami Scorcher paranormal romance novella series. This is wolf shifter/auto mechanic Nick Lazo, and CPA Carly Kendall’s storyline. Told from dual third person perspectives UNLEASHED TEMPTATION focuses Carly’s move to Miami, from Chicago, in the wake of her ex-fiance’s affair with Carly’s boss. Carly quickly packs up and moves to Miami where she soon finds herself falling for her new boss, the sexy Nick Lazo but what Carly doesn’t know is that Nick is a Lycan, and Carly is his mate. The relationship between Carly and Nick is quick to develop-an insta lust/love storyline that reveals Carly is Nick’s mate. Nick is 170 years old and in all that time has never found the other half to his soul, and meeting Carly is nothing like he had expected. But someone else has uncovered Carly’s move to Miami, and he intends to take Carly for himself. The numerous $ex scenes are erotic, intense and hot. Shifter $ex is completely animalistic. We are introduced to Nick’s extended family including his brothers Stephan and Thomas, and Nick’s cousin Alexandra who is quick to befriend Carly both at work and at play. UNLEASHED TEMPTATION is a storyline that quickly introduces the reader to a world of the immortal (although we learn very little about their existence), and hints at several different supernatural species that we can expect to see in the upcoming series. UNLEASHED TEMPTATION is a quick and fun read where another wolf shifter has, at long last, found his mate. The build up to love is rapid-Nick knows Carly is his mate but fears revealing the truth about who and what he is will send his human mate running in the opposite direction. The characters are colorful, protective and energetic; the happily ever after is predictable but welcome.

Just that cool! I still feel this book was a little short compared to Katie's Red Stone series, but it was still good.

Unleashed for your reading pleasure ***A gifted copy was provided by the author for my honest review*** After finding out that her boyfriend cheated on her with her boss, Carly Kendall moves to Miami to be near her grandma and to start a new life too. While there she gets a new job and meets a smoking new boss, Nick Lazos. He personally interviewed her for the job and the chemistry between them was electric. She didn’t want to think he noticed because, HELLO, new boss, new job but wow . Nick is very much an ALPHA male and as soon as he saw Carly he was entranced. And within a matter of days, if not a week , the couple were dating. Problem is Nick has a secret—he is a werewolf – in fact his whole family are werewolves. He is afraid to tell Carly because she made mention of a terror from her past and he is terrified he will lose her when he finally does get ready to tell her. Nick knows this lady is his mate. He loves her and cannot fathom her not being in his life. There is another problem in their future. There is a threat to Carly. She is being stalked by a Immortal named Asha who wants to take Carly and use her then possibly kill her . He is obsessed with her because of who she reminds him of. Nick is terrified that he will lose her ; and he has yet to mark her because of the thing in her past that ties into his being a werewolf. She still doesn’t know. Poor guy, he is head over heels in love for Carly. Carly is head over heels in love with Nick and doesn’t know what is going on with him but she just wants him to come “clean” with whatever is going on so they can be happy or she knows what the score is . It’s a roller coaster ride and the twists and turns at the end really give this a satisfying conclusion to this fantastic story. I hope to read more about this family of shifters . My rating: 4.5 STARS ****

A very cute, sexy paranormal romance… This is the first book in the Miami Scorcher series that can be read as a stand-alone. The length is that of a longer novella. At the age of 170, Nick Lazos, a wolf shifter, hadn’t found his mate and no longer expected to. So what’s he to do when a sexy female walks into his office for a job interview and the sight and scent of her sets off his inner wolf? Hire her of course and try to keep his wolf under control. That she’s a human who lacks knowledge of the existence of the paranormal community and who has good reason to hate dogs he’ll have to deal with very carefully. He doesn’t want to spook her, he just wants to keep her. Unfortunately there’s a complication, he’s not the only paranormal whose set his sights on her; an enemy has noticed her presence. Now that he’s finally found his mate he’ll do everything to keep and protect her. Needing a change of environment and wanting to be close to her grandmother, Carly Kendall, left the cold of Chicago for the warmth of Miami after her boyfriend cheated on her with her boss. She’s thrown on a job interview by the man who would be her new boss, he’s the sexiest man that she’s ever seen and she lusts for him. Not a good thing to feel for your boss yet she accepts the job when it’s offered. Working with such a man is a serious distraction and the more she gets to know him the harder it is to keep her distance especially when the attraction is mutual and what she feels is more than a case of lust. This was a very cute sexy paranormal romance with two strong likable characters. Nick had to tread carefully for Carly has to accept a world that she’s known nothing about. He takes too much time and circumstances force him to change in front of her to save her life. Can she accept what he is? The supporting pack characters were interesting. I’m looking forward to Nick’s brothers stories. ARC provided by the author.

Unleashed Temptation was a great read with steamy sex scenes. Carly needs a change of scenery after finding out her boyfriend Dan was cheating on her. With no family in Chicago she decides to move to Miami near her grandmother but the last thing she expects is for her boss Nick to be tall, dark and sinfully sexy. The chemistry between the characters is undeniable and now that Nick has found his mate he isn’t willing to let her go. However, Asha has his eyes on Carly and isn’t giving her up without a fight. This is a great start to a series and I’m patiently awaiting the next story. The only thing I disliked is that for an immortal Asha was killed easily, but with the shifters in this story and how things ended I’m sure there will be a lot more bonding, fighting and revenge. I look forward to reading more about Nick, Stephan, Thomas and the rest of the Lazos pack. This short story is a great read for paranormal lovers looking for a quick fix.

Savanah - you are great in this book. Its modern and relative to now. I would definately recommend to all. Love scene, environment, Nick and Carly, how they met and how their chemistry was instantanous. It was so heavy I didn't want to stop reading once I started. Wanted to see what was going to happen next, very intriguing. Keep up this kind of writing and you will have huge following - great book but want to know what happens next. Please tell !!

Great story line and interaction between the characters. The romance is believable and the book is fairly fast paced. The only thing that really threw me off was the bad guy. There wasn't any background for him...he was like a pervert who just happened to have magical powers. If that's the case then his role in the story was really overhyped in the blurb. I'm looking forward to reading stories about the other brothers.

I really liked everything about the story except it ends without the couple ever saying "I love you". He knows he loves her and vice versa however, they never tell each other. I just found that a bit disappointing. Still, I plan to read more of this author's work!
