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

Wow. Nick was hot! I really liked this one!
Oooh, boy. If you want a hunk of burning love werewolf to rock your world, check Nick's garage. Because... HOLY SMOKES! This guy knows how to give it to a lady several times over.

Very, very fun little romp with a pack of wolves who know all the dirty details of Nick's life (when you can smell the lust rolling off a guy, it's hard to hide that he's interested) and who aren't afraid to give him a hard time about it. I love that Nick goes almost non-verbal around Carly. It just so cute when a big g
This was my first shifter story and it wasn't bad. I would like to read more in the series, but I don't know if I'll part with $4 to read stories that are less than 150 pages long.

Anyway, this was a good story. It moved at a good pace, probably a good "intro" to shifters. There's more sex than anything, so that worked for me, since this is not a genre that I am interested in at all. Glad that I did read it though because it was a nice change of pace. Unfortunately I kept thinking about Twilight

This is probably going to get me kicked off the ARC team but I read these books in exchange for an honest review. This is an honest review.

I love this author's work as a general rule. She always has strong characters, well-developed plots, and exciting scenes. This book missed the mark. I'm sorry but I thought there was too much pointless sex in it, the language was crass and unnecessary and it got to a point where I was rolling my eyes and grumbling, "Here we go again."

I didn't know where the s
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 romanc

Had this marked as come back to later, but don't think that is going to happen. Don't recall why I stopped. Think it had to do with references to hero's sexual past.

I enjoyed this quick short story between Carly and Nick. It was filled with great sex and the story was well written. It did move at quick pace and the suspense was over and one before it really got started. Overall a good story!

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.

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.

I completely loved this book!

She lands the first job she interviews for and winds up working for super hot boss, Nick. They are both instantly attracted to each other, but Carly doesn’t know that Nick is a werewolf and the local Alpha.

Nick and Carly’s chemistry is scorching hot. Nick wants her so badly but doesn’t want to scare her by telling her he’s not human, plus

glad I didn’t put it down

Why did I read this? And am I glad I did?

This is yet another book I came across via Kelly. I almost put it down during the first chapter when Carly cringed twice in the same paragraph. However, I ended up enjoying the story. I have a hard time putting down books I’m really into and an even harder time getting back into the story a couple days later. So I’ve been reading more novellas at night and saving the full novels for weekends. This was steamy, a

A quick enjoyable romp.

Unleased Temptation was the first story I've read by Savannah Stuart and it was great. I will definitely be getting more books by SS in the future.

Carly recently found out her boyfriend has been sleeping with her boss and we're introduced to her as she and her best friend Sarah are packing up Carly's place. Carly wants a change of scenery from Chicago and her now ex-boyfriend and is heading to Florida where her grandmother lives.

Short or not, you still have to give it up for Savannah Stuart/Katie Reus - no matter the length they are GOOD!This one was certainly no different. The villain - who was supposed to be this big, bad Immortal - I thought was a little too easily gotten rid of and a bit anti-climactic, but other than that I really don't have any complaints regarding the story. As usual with these short length novels, I always wish there were MORE, but Stuart/Reus has a talent for still managing to wrap up her story ...more

I really don't read paranormal books, this is the 2nd paranormal book I ever read. This is the 1st Savannah Stuart book I read. I loved the storyline. I loved the fighting scenes. I loved the detailed information Ms. Stuart writes about the characters. I loved this story so much I can't wait to read more books by Ms. Stuart. This book is well written & its worth buying if you love reading paranormal's.

This is my first shifter book and what a pleasant surprise. I really enjoyed the authors writing style and found the plot and characters well developed. The sexs scenes were smoking hot and tastefully written.

I look forward to reading more by this author.

This was a very quick insta lust due to "mating" with lots of sex book. I enjoyed Nick and liked that he got a bit tongue tied when it came to Carly. The villain was a bit over the top and we didn't get to spend much time with him but again this book wasn't very long. It did introduce us to Nick's family/pack and I will continue with the series.

4/5 This book kept me reading. I think it could have been a little longer than 100 pages. Like most of the heroines in a book Carly is kept in the dark about what Nick really is.There is not much to say without giving everything away in a review so i think i will keep it at that. If Alpha males turn you on, this is a quick read for you. Also a quick gimps into the demon world.
Really liked it even though it was a little short for my taste. But it does seem to continue on with another book so i guess that is ok, i just thought it could have been drawn out a little more and had some more detail added.
Decent Romance.

I enjoyed this love story. The romance was hot and sweet. Nick was an excellent alpha male. The plot was somewhat anticlimactic for me but it kept my interest. All and all it was a decent read.
