Kaya is a shape-shifter, and having been left behind by her family she's spent most of her life as a cougar in the wild. She's been watching Jericho and Hunter, two men who live in an isolated cabin, and they have been watching her. When she is hurt, she allows them to help her--and they discover that their wild cougar companion is in fact a beautiful woman. They both form an attachment to her, and are reluctant to leave her even when their work calls them away.

I liked that the plot was slow and...more

Once part of a menage relationship, Hunter and Jericho both agreed to never enter into another menage out of respect for their former partner. Hunter, a loner, has formed an attachment to a cougar that has been hanging by the cabin Hunter and Jericho share between assignments. Jericho is just waiting for the cougar to eat his best friend, but when it becomes injured Hunter is adamant it needs their help.

As if taming a cougar is not weird enough, they find a naked woman in their cabin. After a r...more

Really, I liked "Amber Eyes" much more than it's predecessor "Golden Eyes." The relationship build-up is slower, more natural. I especially liked how in the beginning Hunter and Jericho would trade attitudes off on things - Hunter was open to the cougar, but not the girl; Jericho was open to the girl, but not the cougar. It was creatively ironic. ^_^;;

But then, after they found out the truth and the three of them grew closer, I was a little disappointed about how Hunter took the prime roll in ev...more

this was the sequel to Golden Eyes. in this one we see where Kaya ended up after being captured from her home in Alaska. Coincidentally she ends up in the mountain of the small town her sister is living in. In cougar form she was watching a pair of men who lived in a cabin, longing for some human contact. after caring for her in cougar form she makes herself known to them as human. from there the relationship heads to a HEA menage, and HEA's all around really.

this one was lacking on the action/s...more

I personally have an issues with this "sharing lovers" thing, but the book was a good read. I was a bit disappointed towards the end because I expected someone to at least call out Hunter and Jericho for taking advantage of Kaya (EVEN IF THEY DIDN'T)or something towards that extent or maybe Jericho or Hunter died on the mission before you introduce this "relationship" to the girl's family but then who knows why things happen the way they did. Had a hard time rating, 3 stars or 4, cause even thou...more

Mucho mejor que el primero, definitivamente tiene el encanto de la autora que hizo falta en el primer libro, me agrado mucho la historia realmente es tierna, obviamente tiene sus fallos y algunos pedazos demasiado rebuscados pero en fin es buena historia para pasar un dia
Michelle
I am a great fan of Maya Banks, but I have to be honest. This was the worst book of hers I have read. It has the makings of a good book, but the plot feels completely undeveloped. The emotions are unrealistic and undeveloped. They just don't feel real to the writing. I see them written there but they're not realistically occurring through the story line. The characters are OK, but the dialog is flat and unnatural. This book was not worth my reading time except that there are some spicy bits that...more

I downed the rate a star because I forgot giving it a review making it seem that it doesn't strike much on the interest. I love the cougar shift thingy but it's kinda weird. Like reality clashing with fantasy and it feels so wrong. The ending...hmmm..where she found her family was kinda unexpected. When the POV turned Duncan I was asking what for and I found out, that his wife is Kaya's sister.
The sex part was...fine. Not that good really cause it is tamed down and its a menage. Guess that is as...more

Hunter and Jerico live alone high in the country mountains. The go off on missions for long lengths only to return to cabin in the mountains. Hunter and Jerico have lost the woman they love and they respect her by the missions they run. They are loners, they do not need anyone. Hunter has been for the most part very cold until he comes across a cougar. The cougar keeps getting braver and braver by getting a little closer each time he spots her. Eventually the cougar makes her way all the way int...more

A paranormal novella with a caring edge. Two men, both are wanting to make a difference in the world but not necessarily wanting to be involved in a social scene. Enter a beautiful animal that seems to want to be with them, and when they are least expecting it, they find in their mud room it's been replaced with a beautiful woman. There are really sizzling encounters between these three--typical Banks encounters--but there is also disappointment, insecurity, a sense of not being wanted or loved,...more

I loved Maya Banks's Highlander series so I thought I would give this one a try. I'm not impressed, but I'm rather tired of the whole shapeshifter, werewolf, vampire stuff. This book features a shape shifting woman and 2 uber men. My biggest problem with this book was that I've never seen 2 men share French fries from McDonalds much less what these 2 share. I will continue to read books by Banks but will defiantly stay out of her paranormal novels.

Falling in love with your eyes

The concept of this story was very interesting two friends being captivated with two individuals only to find that they are one and the same. The characters are similar yet complex at the same time. The story very unique in its development. I truly enjoyed the characters and wished the story had not ended so soon.
Tawnya
I think I enjoyed Amber Eyes a little more than Golden Eyes, and I thoroughly enjoyed that novella. Kaya was enjoyable to read and watch come to get use to the human world she had long since stopped from trying to enter. Also for Hunter and Jericho to learn to love again.
Amanda Sheila
Well well well.

Kaya's badly injured and when he seek for protection, she stumbled into Jericho and Hunter. They saved her and pet her. Yes, Kaya's still in shape of cougar, mountain lion. Until one day she can't take it anymore, so shifted back into human form..

This one's longer than Golden Eyes. I liked it. But again, to me Maya Banks isn't really good at menage stories. The relationship between them is a bit unbalanced and I don't understand why it has to be Hunter who took Kaya's v-card whe...more
Jamie
What a let down, after Golden Eyes. The plot was alright. The dialogue was atrocious. Everything was hurried, stilted, choppy. I have read other Maya Banks novels, and this is hands down the worst.
Amber
I thought the first book in the series was good this one was even better also way more tears ... I am so serious about Maya needing to sell her books with tissues and chocolate attached ... lol :)
Judith
As always, Maya Banks has a way with the menage genre, and this book is no exception. It is also a paranormal novella with a gentle and caring edge to the story. Two men, both are wanting to make a difference in the world but not necessarily wanting to be involved in a social scene. Enter a beautiful animal that seems to want to be with them, and when they are least expecting it, they find a beautiful woman in their mud room. There are really sizzling encounters between these three--typical Bank...more

Katie is a shape shifter who was separated from her family when she was a young child. She did return to her family home only to discover her family is gone. The story is set in the snow covered mountains and she is befriended by Jericho and Hunter who live in a cabin and leave food out for her when she is in the form of a cougar. She gets caught in a trap and Hunter and Jericho think that they are giving first aid to the injured cougar and they are in for a big surprise.... Because I have read...more
Karen
I love this story. Very well written. Ms. Banks makes an amazing story believable and touching. You can see the caring and love develop between the characters so sweetly. The men are strong and protective but little Kaya is strong in her own way too. I wish there were more books in this series!

Reading the prequel, Golden Eyes, first isn't necessary but it, too, is a good story. In that book, Duncan's thoughts as he interacts with the cheetah, and at the discovery of the woman-who-is-a-cheetah ar...more

AMBER EYES

WOW!!! THESE SHIFTER NOVELS ARE AMAZING I THINK I JUST FOUND A NEW GENRE OF BOOKS TO LOVE IN READING.
Angela Verdenius
Menage story, but so sweet. The heroine is a shifter who hasn't had much to do with humans, and her shape is a cougar. The heroes are yummy, so caring. I love how the men both react differently to the heroine in both her forms.

I mean, a hero who is soft with animals...whoa baby!
And another hero is just yummy...whoa baby again!

The sex is hot but sweet, too. Nice read. I don't think I've read any of Maya Bank's books before, but this won't be my last! I'm going to check out her other books now, st...more

If you want to read this book, be sure you are in for some major fantasy reading. Pretty much nothing about this story is even remotely believable, but if you are interested in complete fantasy, it's not a bad read.

For me, it takes a while to get into a book when absolutely nothing about it is familiar to me. This was one of those books. I'm a fast reader and hardly ever stop reading once I've started so I did finish this one, but at times it was difficult.

Every turn seemed more far fetched than...more

Brain candy fluff for clearing my head. Easy to read. Not a lot of commitment required.
Margaret Goehring
nice quick read and sweet story (even if it was my first time reading about a m/f/m) . pretty mainstream and easy to gloss over any parts if wanted. the relationships were nice and not to much.
Angela Jennings
It was ok. That's about the most I can say about this book.
Tabatha
Kaya has lived a solitary life in the mountains of Colorado since her separation from her family when just a child in her cougar form. Despite her isolation from humanity, she finds herself drawn to Hunter and Jericho. She approaches them after being hurt, and they work to ensure her safety though she is reluctant. The relationship is a slow build, so that part I really did enjoy, but this one just wasn't as good as the first in this series. I felt like the HEA at the end was just too neatly tie...more
Oleta Blaylock
This is the sequel to Golden Eyes. I enjoyed this story and wish that it had been a little longer. The characters were wonderful and the setting outstanding. While the story is shorter not novella thing but not novel length either there is a lot packed into each of the pages. I enjoyed seeing the characters from the previous story again. While both these stories are an unusal take on the shapeshifting legend they are enjoyable none the less. I don't think you can go wrong with a story written by...more
Annie
It was just ok. I did not get attached to the characters. The pregnancy was out of nowhere and felt like plot filler. I did not really get into the sex scenes. I can deal with the "this can never happen" I read PNR, it will NEVER happen. However, the author needs to make me believe in the story. She needs to make these people and their lives real to me. That did not happen. Banks is a good author this was just not her best work. IMO.
