This should have been at least two books

Primal Desires suffers from lack of focus, too many threads, un-interesting flashbacks, and from too many characters stealing the spotlight from the main romance. Where I normally enjoy the complexity and depth that multiple threads bring to a story, here the threads are superficial and the switching back and forth between so many different characters and flashing back not only bogged down the pace, but also left no room for the interesting scene I would

This is just a God awful book with nothing going for it. This is the 6Th in the series and shouldn't be considered a stand-alone. The story is EVERYWHERE, so many throwbacks and surprises that are necessary but poorly executed.

Sophia is not a likeable character. She is too flimsy to be considered a strong female character, and all her character had was her blog and mentioning twice her college. Twice. What was her major? Minor? And why did she have a blog about reviewing classic stories? Anyone

This novel really didn't surprise me at all. I kind of expected a spin-off of the last novel's characters. I would have been very disappointed if there wasn't one. I did enjoy the plot to this novel immensely, because it brought something new to the table. And everyone knows that to make a series great you need new information to keep it going. This novel definitely did all of that and more. It was extremely to my liking and was very enjoyable to read. The characters in this novel got along with ...more

Another excellent novel in the Primes series!

I adored Sofia. I thought that, although it was quite a bit to take in at the beginning for her, she adjusted quickly and quite well. Strong in mind and body, she manages to make sense of everything thrown her way and finally accepts what she is. What I thought was really neat with Sofia was how Sizemore turned her into one of us bookaholics, where Sofia even has a blog of her own where she reviews books and movies. I thought it was really touching to

I so remember why I didn't finish this series right away. It just reads like an old woman or my mom would write a romance book. Cheesy, not really dated, but will be dated because of Harry Potter references etc. Romance skimmed over like they were afraid their kids might read it an be all embarrassed.

Anyway, this was an animal tamer vamp guy from Las Vegas who receives half of a coin amulet & knows what its about. He meets the woman with the other half when they are both summoned t

Jason Cage is known in Las Vegas as "The Beast Master", no-one knowing that he is in fact a vampire. His telepathic skills were used before to tame wild werewolves. Sofia Hunyara is ignorant of her heritage and her ability to also control werewolves. She lives in fear of dogs since some tried to attack her when she was younger. Shortly before her father was convicted of murder.

Jason has to get Sofia to accept her powers and to join the good guys before the bad guys control her. But can he contro

Series continues to be good, although still lacking some depth. The characters are intriguing, the plots are full of twists and good humor. It continues to be an enjoyable series.

Not really good or bad, and a bit forgetable.
Nov 11, 2015 Izzy rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
Even though I'm acquainted with this series as I've read two other books,
I found this one chaotic.

There were far too many characters, too many pairings, too many flashbacks that were inserted without fair warning and, despite the author's clear desperation, there was no plot.

Most series have one or two books which are not up to standard in comparison to the rest of the series. Sadly, I think 'Primal Desires' is one of those books.

I have read most of Sizemore's books of this genre, and I have to say that I had a hard time gettin into this one. It wasn't bad, I just coulding get into it. I don't know if the material just wasn't that entertaining, or if I just wasn't in a receptive mood when I read it.
An average book for me, but as I didn't enjoy it, for whatever reason, I only rated it 2stars, over my usual 3stars for an average good read.

Bought it on a whim, as I knew of Susan from the TV Tie-in book Forever Knight: A Stirring of Dust I bought years ago.

I have to say I liked the Vampire/Werewolf clan struture she's got set up and the mating/social structure. I plan to buy the first 5 books and (and the short story: Tempting Fate) read the series in order. I'm adding her to my short list of romance authors.

Yum. This is the first I have read, so now I have to backtrack and read the others in this series. Got this off the shelf at the local library, and sdidn't see any others, so they must be in demand. Story lines along the path of many other authors of this field, but I like the differing versions of Vampire Clan and Families, so will be intersted to learn more.

I had a little trouble keeping characters straight for a bit. Not sure if it's because I've missed books in this series (having only read 1 and 5 and this is the 6th) or because it's been so long since I read Primal Heat that it was causing me trouble. Overall, this was okay. I recall being more impressed with the other two books I read though.

This book didn't do it for me at all sadly. There's was too much going on and now I find that it's the 6th book in the series and maybe if I got my hands on the first one I could love it but sadly this sort of ruined it for me and I don't at this moment plan to pick up another one of this series.

I like Sizemore's writing style. However, I really have no clue what this book was about. It was easy to read, but I think I started too late in the series although paranormal romance series tend to work as standalones. I was a little confused as to the relationships between all of the characters.

Still have not found any really good vampire novels recently. This one had too many characters that I had to turn back a few times to make sure I had them straight. The plot itself was pretty lame too.......I can not believe I just used the word lame......hehehehe

I really liked this book. I loved how Sophia was portrayed as a strong independent woman. A lot of books don't portray that in women. I also like how Jason, despite wanting to "be in charge" of Sophia let her be that strong independent woman.

Wow! If you are a lover of vampire and werewolf romance, then you should read this book. Loved that it was steamy and also a bit thrilling. Yummy is such a fitting word to describe the story line in this one.

I enjoyed this book...

Vampires, werewolfs...a few other supernatural effects like mindreading - throw in some romance and some steamy scenes and you have a fun, quick read!

Instead of putting each book individually i will just put one of them and this series is a MUST read for adult books for supernatural, i just adore these books, amazing.

Simple reading (if you can keep the names straight).

I wouldn't recommend and won't be buying anymore of the series.

I should revisit this after the first in the series - I felt very lost the whole book.
