He doesn’t have a name. He doesn’t have a clan. The humans who held him prisoner for forty years have taken them away. He knew nothing but captivity until nearly a year ago, when he was released into the light. Now Tiger liv ...more
4.2 Stars - Always guaranteed interesting good m/f Shifter romances from Ms J Ashley - So also this time
For me is a book from the 'Shifters Unbound' series always a good reading (listening) choice. Well written m/f PNR by, always delivering, Jennifer Ashley. These romances are that kind of good paranormal suspense where we always get interesting stories, thoughtful topics and sweet —steamy enough— love-stories. So far my favorite Shifter series (in the m/f genre) ...more
Tiger (the Hero): 5 stars. I'm a fan of Jennifer Ashley's The Madness of Lord Ian McKensie (prob got the title slightly wrong, but GR's book link not working for me). But that was the only book in that historical romance series that ever stuck in my mind, didn't really care for the others one way or the other. My point being, ...more
This is the only book in the series I have read but it was a great one! I do not love the world the author has built, probably because it pits shifters against each other, makes them out to be a lower class and makes them wear shock collars. Really not ok with that one! Tried a shock collar once because someone suggested I put it on my dog - it hurt like a bitch! and that was just my leg!
Tiger has been kept in a cage for 40 years and is only recently free. He is ...more
We have met Tiger when Iona saved him from the research facility in a previous book.
Tiger is currently living with the Austin shifters trying to figure out his place. Since he was created by scientists and not fae he is having problem adapted to the shifters society. The main differences are the following:
-He does not really understand the point of being an Alpha shifter. Since he is stronger than everyone else in shifter town, he does not understand why sh ...more
This book ended up being so freaking GREAT!! Up until 85%, I thought my final rating was going to be 4.25 stars, but that last 15% was so utterly fantastic. My gosh, I love Tiger. I love Carly -- she is one of my top favorite heroines ever.
Some of my favorite things about Tiger Magic:
TIGER: He was such a wonderful character. He didn't talk a lot and he was subdued much of the time, but he was pure hero material. He was 100% devoted to Carly. He was the ultimate protector, not only to ...more
I read the teaser at the end of the last book, and I shouldn’t have-because it made me want Tiger’s book soo badly! But now that I’ve read it, I can say it was worth the wait!
If you remember, Tiger was created in a secret lab, held there for 40 years, experimented on and tortured. Rescued by the Las Vegas shifter pack in Mate Claimed, he is sent to live in the Austin Shiftertown until they can sort out what to do with him.
Being that Tiger was created in a lab ...more
Favorite Quote: “I’m a little afraid, sure [...] it’s not everyday I slap duct tape over a man’s mouth and stuff him in my truck.”
Tiger was held in a secret lab for forty years; experimented on and tortured. Rescued by the Las Vegas shifter pack, he is sent to the Austin pack until they can figure out what exactly to do with him. Unusual in his make up, Tiger is a loner who makes all shifters, except for children, very uneasy. Not sure ...more
While some of the dialogue was a bit campy/cheesy, I do love the character of Tiger I like how his character was portrayed. His innocence untouched. He's simply a creature of instinct & heart. He keeps things straight forward, simple, real, & sexy.
His mate Carly, she was alright, I guess. I ...more
Love triangle? (view spoiler)[No. (hide spoiler)]
Cheating? (view spoiler)[ Not between H/h. She catches her fiancé cheating on her at the beginning of the story. (hide spoiler)]
HEA? (view spoiler)[ YES. (hide spoiler)]
Any Descriptive Sex w/OW/OM/Ex? (view spoiler)[No. (hide spoiler)]
Would I read more by this author/or in this series? Maybe, but not for now.
Rating: 5 stars
I really and truly loved this one. The main reason for that is H, who is sooo wonderful, knows what he wants and ...more
My favorite of the series! Tiger is just so misunderstood and really a sweetie on the inside. I adored him! Carly stuck by her man, which I loved. I have one itty bitsy nitpick though (view spoiler)[is his cub really dead? Just because some scientists told him so doesn't make it true. Jennifer please clear that up for me. (hide spoiler)]
Also, the shifters of shiftertown really treated poor Tiger bad and did such a disservice to him. Thank goodness for cute cubs that loved him anyway.
Can't wait for the next!
When he comes across Carly, I was not surprised by his instant knowledge of her as his mate. Nor was I surprised by how he acts around Carly. He's so new to everything, including finding his mate, he's just running on instincts. I expected that of him.
Carly finds herself ...more
As always, Ashley's writing captivated and excited me. The meticulous plot and the tons of action and romance terns each page into a small miracle. Tiger's sweet ferocity and his mate, Carly's wounded heart is the perfect combination for a fantast ...more
Tiger, the hero of this book, was first introduced in a previous installment, and to be honest, I can’t remember ...more
Tiger, who we first met in Mate Claimed, is a simple kind of man. All he wants is a mate and a few cubs. Love? Well, a guy like Tiger doesn’t even know how to want or miss a thing like love. Raised in cages, put through hellish tests that were the cruelest kind of abuse, and violated in the name of science… Tiger’s never been on the receiving end of love. Even now that he’s free and living in a Shiftertown, almost everyone fears him or is wary of him because of his strengt...more
What I Liked:
TIGER! Seriously, Tiger was my favorite aspect of the whole story. He is so my kind of hero. Tiger is strong, and other shifters aren't really sure what to make of him because of his unique circumstances (ma ...more
I started reading this book weeks ago and found myself with no desire to continue it or even the series. I have no idea where the author is going here - the shifters are more fighting among themselves than All the books are so predictable - a shifter meets a human woman, wants her immediately, they are hooking up in a few days and they decide to mate right away.
Also, I've never been a fan of the narrator so this is it for me with this series.
I have always had a weakness for tiger shifters. I don’t know if it’s because of the rarity that these type of shifters are featured or because of the tiger’s nature, but you can always put me down for a tiger shifter story any day of the week!
When I had read the synopsis for Tiger Magic a while back, I knew that I had to read it, but sadly my libr ...more
Rescued from horrific experiments and relocated to the shiftertown in Austin, Tiger, a rare bengal shifter, feels like an outcast until the day he stumbles across Carly Randal broken down on the side of a deserted road, and knows he has met his mate. As Carly is slowly drawn into the dangers and intrigues of the shifter world, her one constant is the intensity of her feelings for Tiger. But will that be enough to overcome the obstacles in their path to happiness?
A sweet additio ...more
I liked Tiger and felt for him from the moment Iona saved him. His story was heartbreaking: a shifter created in a secret laboratory and kept there (area 51) for 40 years or so. He was tortured and experimented on for the good of science.
From the beginning, the shifters didn't know what to do and how to deal with Tiger but Dylan saw something in him and took him to his town.
While the shifters didn't know what to do with him and how to control him, their children/ cubs knew better. They t ...more
I loved how Tiger recognized Carly as his mate right away. I thought it was funny how even though he kept stating the fact around Carly she didn't realize the implications. I also really loved that Carly was the one person to calm Tiger down. It was great to how the other shifters reacte ...more
Tiger Magic came to my attention from friends' reviews. They all love this series and I thought to give it a try again.
Tiger Magic is simply too bland for my tastes. I liked seeing what happened to characters I had already met. But I wasn't that intrigued by Tiger, his story, his mate.
The story was too sugary for me. Plus, I found his background pre ...more

Stumbling upon a woman by the road he soon realizes this is his mate, but how to make her his?
Carlys already late for work when her car brakes down by the road, and the only help available is a big ...more
And, ok, I loved that my favourite of all the shifters appeared in this story too. AND that he had a fairly important par ...more
