LORA LEIGH - TEMPTING THE BEAST (Breeds #1)
Callan Lyons is a genetic experiment. One of six fighting for freedom and the survival of their Pride. Merinus Tyler is the reporter who will tempt him, draw him, until the fury of the "mating frenzy" locks them into a battle of sexual heat there is no escape from. Deception, blood, and the evil Genetics Council are hot on their trail. Callan will use his strength to try and save them both...and do all in his power to keep his woman in the process.
IN MY OWN WORDS
Merinus is a free spirit overprotected by her brothers and father. She craves to make her place in the family business and become a great reporter. She is after her story: Callan Lyons. Callan is a bread, one of many, created in a lab out of an experiment. The breads are destined to become perfect soldiers, to obey command without question and to kill without remorse. Free at last from the Genetic Council who created and tortured them, it also means they do not have all the knowledge of their species - especially not when confronted with the "mating frenzy". When it takes hold of Merinus and Callan, it is all consuming and puts them in great danger. Running from the Genetic Council who hasn't given up trying to abduct her and kill him, Callan must protect his woman and his Pride...And take his place as a leader.
Welcome to the world of the Breeds. With a Bang. It will take you, consume you, enchant you, leave you breathless and asking for more. It is the first in the Breed Series and you WILL want to read the others. A warning: they are not all as good as this one, but are worth reading.
In true Lora Leigh fashion, you will find a great story plot, an Alpha-Male who does all he can to remain in control - and to control resist his woman, a strong and feisty heroine who will give her man a run for his money and good dialogue.
Also in true Lora Leigh fashion, the dialogue is sometimes a little tacky and goes too far. I'm also not crazy when a virgin heroine is suddenly consumed with sex and becomes all knowledgeable. It does make for great sex, mind you. Thank God, no threesome in those books!!!
You have to keep in mind that this story introduces us to a whole new world so there is a lot to explain. It it however done with great taste and not to lengthy. It is a world so creative and so unique, it stands the test of time with all the other stories and will evolve to a point where you will feel you are part of their world. It is a sci-fi but weirdly enough, you can almost forget about it, it is so believable.
Another word of advice: If this is your first Lora Leigh, prepare to be shocked! It is naughty, unexpected and raw...But all in a delicious way.
Type: contemporary erotic romance of the sci-fi genre.
Keyword: Breed, Possessive Hero, Alpha-Male
Intimacy: 2 words - Oh! Yeah!
I gave it a five star because apart from the sometimes tacky dialogue, I have read this book over and over again...And will continue reading it every few months!
