Savage man, loner, warrior… I am dangerous at my core. I have lived amidst the untamed wild of the rainforest, in a society that reveres me and where every woman falls before me in subjugation.

Now I’ve been discovered. Forced to return to a world that I have forgotten about and to a culture that is only vaguely fam

If there ever was a book that 100% belonged on my ‘panty dropping hot’ bookshelf, this one is it. The next time you’re in the mood for something steamy and erotic, this should go towards the top of the list. Zach is uncivilized and hot as hell. He’s a true dominate man- it’s the way he was raised. It’s in his culture. Although he is an American, he grew up in the Amazon. Now 24 years old, he’s spent the last 16 years of his life there. It’s all he knows.

Yes, yes, contain your shock please. This self professed smut slut just rated this smut fest two stars. Check your windows for flying pigs and I'm sure somewhere right now hell is freezing over, but it did just happen.

This book was improbable, hilarious and absolutely ludicrous at times. At the same time, it was heart-warming and incredibly erotic. Imagine an adult version of 'Tarzan and Jane' and you'll get the gist of it. I laughed my ass off, rolled my eyes and listened intently. I could not break away from this story until I had finished it.

When Moira first begins to reintegrate Zach into modern, civilized life, he has every intention of making her plans as difficult as possible. Early on, he picks up on

3 stars!


You know the feeling when you’re reading a book and you’re seeing the words and they register in your mind but they’re not making an impact? Stir zero emotions? Make you feel like there’s an invisible wall between you and the book? Uncivilized was that kind of book for me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s scorching hot and probably is erotica at its finest but from a storyline standpoint, it was pretty unrealistic. Knowing me, I have to have more than just hot sex in a story to love it and that

4 Uncivilized Stars!

I was going give this book a lower rating last night because quite honestly there were so many inconsistencies and inaccuracies. They were so obvious and not that they bothered me but the practical side of my brain was trying to make everything make sense. So this review is based purely on enjoyment. I enjoy smutty books but there comes a time when I ask myself when is it going to stop? Gime some more story please! Not in this case though. Uncivilized by Sawyer Bennett, is

Moira is heading deep into the Amazon, but this trip isn’t just research. She’s there to bring Zach back to civilization. To acclimate him to the modern world, one that was lost to him eight years ago. Tribal life isn’t new to Moira, she’s studied it, hell she teaches it... but what is new is the fierce reaction this savage has sparked within in, more specifically between her thighs.

Review at Of Pens and Pages.

Wow. This book is hot. From start to finish, Uncivilized is filled with dirty talk and uninhibited sex.

Anthropologist Dr. Moira Reed is sent on a mission to bring back Zacharias Easton home from the Amazon, and help him transition back into the modern world. She needs to do her best with this mission, because not only will Randall Cannon, Zach’s godfather and the man who funded the whole mission, give her a generous grant, she will also be able to publish her

Recommends it for: Fans of erotic romance
If you've read the book blurb, obviously you know that this is a modern take on the Tarzan story. What I don't know is if the original Tarzan was as over-sexed as our hero, 25-year-old Zacharias (Zach) Easton...:)

The Synposys for Uncivilized does a stellar job of summing up exactly what you can exptect from its pages –

Putting a woman on her knees before me is what really makes my cock hard. I fuck with dominant force and absolute control. I demand complete surrender from my conquests.

I am wild, free and raw, and the only thing I want from the beautiful Moira Reed is to fuck her into submission.

☆ I recieved an ARC via ATOMR Tours to separately read apart from the blog tour on my own. Thank you!! ☆

Holy shiznit, this book was porn central with a little TOO MUCH SEX in basically every chapter!! How can someone be that sexually prime and go for that many rounds and produce that many orgasms in both his self and his partner?! He's like the energizer bunny and the girl is his blow up doll to dominate (because she has ZERO personality) at his whim and dispense! Sheesh.


So the story:

This was a 3.5 stars for me..I wanted to like it so much more than I did; but I just couldn't force myself to feel into it as much as I expected I would. I was so excited for this book to come out, and if I am honest; I was thinking that it might be along the same lines as the book Transcendance..which was one I adored. I felt that the theme might be similiar, as Zach spent 18 years in the jungle, living with a tribe and basically becoming "Uncivilized!" Instead, there was mainly tons of sex. No ...more

While I was reading this book (especially the first part), I had the image of Alexander Skarsgard running wild and free in the jungle wearing just a small loincloth posing as Tarzan. This helped me to get into the book's philosophy, but it really did not help me to relate with the characters.

I had a few issues with the book. Let me see:

Then it started to drag, it was repetitive and everything was sex sex sex and more sex, I can't believe I'm saying this but it was just too much. 85% of the book consists of them banging and that's it.

I was so fortunate to get an early copy, and ladies just wait until you meet Zach. This is an amazing story!!!!

Bold, erotic, and astoundingly unique. Hands down one of the best books I've read all year!
#99cents SALE (12/01/2016)

It will lure you in with its raw and blatant eroticism, but it will keep you captivated by the smart, domineering yet vulnerable man out of place and the strength and care of a woman determined to love him just as he is: Uncivilized.
“Zacharias Easton… a boy who was taken from his home… a man who was taken from his life. They are both a part of who you are. But please don’t ever forget, my beautiful man… that you have the opportunity now to be whoever you want to be.
Well, this was something else!

I like the whole idea, although I can't say this was one of those "wow, this is so good that it ruined me for all the others" kind of books.
It didn't really make me "feel" stuff, although I did enjoy most of it. What was a definite plus though was the sexiness of the whole thing! I mean, wow! I loved this guy!

Did get boring after a while but ah well, you can't really have it all I guess

Well written though, so definitely worth a try!
