Instinctive is definitely a job well done by Ms. Fox. Having read other books by her and being used to her contemporary erotica I have to say I liked her paranormal better!

Let me give you a warning for when you pick this up and start reading it. This book start off with a bang, and I mean that in the most literal way possible! I was a bit shocked about finding our heroine in a sex club basically having a threesome in front a a lot of the club goers. But

Jaclyn Vasenty is making some big changes in her life. The privileged Chicago socialite is giving up all vices, which mainly includes kinky sex, and turning over a new life. She owes so much to her adopted parents who rescued her from foster care. Now it’s time for Jaclyn to turn her back on her deep sexual nature and take over as the head of her family’s company, Vasenty Cosmetics, and save one of their stores from closing in the small town of Serene, New Hampshire.

Things in Serene are not what

This is the first book I've read by this author and I am glad to have read it. I was a little reluctant to read it at first because I was just so over the "me tarzan, you jane" scenarios that usually take place in paranormal romances with the alpha males. The "erotica" portion becomes a dud because the mating is always the same. Not in this book. The sex scenes were changed up and the little girl on girl action added to the flair. The storyline was different so I appreciated that as well. It was ...more
I'd probably give it 3 1/2 stars. I bought this last year at Borders when they were having their outdoor sale. I saw the cover and if you know me you already know I'm a "cover whore". Yup, I freely admit it. I'll look at the book and then read the back of the book. Just because it has a hot cover doesn't automatically mean I'll buy/read it. I want some kind of story too.

This one was a good story despite the fact the first chapter, first page was the main character having sex. It was a little sho

With what I've read so far...
it is a really good book, and I think I would have really liked it more if it hadn't brought in three ways. I love how sexy and steamy the story was from the get go, because a lot of books aren't as hot as they come to seem. this one definitely is and it also has a cool plot line of the paranormal variety.
Now maybe it the jealousy of being a girlfriend in me, or the true love needs only two, but when they introduced the character Sunray to the two main love interest

It felt like reading an embellished transcript of some porn movie.

I like books with words that woo me, that seduce my brain into relating with the romance. This book left nothing to the imagination. Nothing.

The story had paranormal elements, concentrating mostly on werewolf and panther shape shifters but the world building was not consistent enough.

Demons, witches and vampires were mentioned but no other related details were given.

I guess it was more erotica than paranormal fantasy since it was

Well, okay, pleasantly surprised that this book turned out to have a plot. Mainly because the very first sentence opens with sex; actually the whole first chapter is one big sex party. I don't think I care enough about the characters to read future books in series.
I didn't like that the men (panther) were okay to live without their mate, while the women would die if they were to meet theirs and their mate leave them prematurely. Secondly the change to panther for the women was only brought on by

I like the set-up, a town designed for paranormals (werewolves, werepanters, vampires, witches and demons). Although, we don't get to see much of the other paranormals in this book. Just the bits at the council meeting. I think it was an okay story with some okay hotness -- I would read more in the series if they came my way.

If you like a hot and sexy story about shifters, this might be what you need. Jaclyn doesn't know her heritage since she was adopted and she is drawn to the mysterious gated town of Serene. Here she discovers who she really is and also finds her mate. Fast paced and I can't wait until the 2nd book, Impulsive.
It's too short for my liking but plot, events and character development seemed ok, i.e. not too fast & unstructured as well as rather smooth. I also liked Slyck while Jaclyn was just okay.

This is possibly the smuttiest, most fucked up "romance" I've ever read. Plenty of voyerism and threesums if that's your thing. I wouldn't recommend it.
