His Darkest Hunger By Juliana Stone

His Darkest Hunger (Jaguar Warriors #1)

Genre: Paranormal Romance


Jaxon Castille: jaguar shifter, warrior, assassin. He has long hungered for the chance to make his former lover, Libby Jamieson, pay for her deadly betrayal. After three long years he's finally found her. The hunt is over . . .

But the Libby that he finds is not what he expected. She has no memory of their tumultuous affair, of her treachery, of anything beyond her own name. A shadowy and deadly clan has marked them both for death, and in an instant, he game changes: the hunter has become the hunted.

On the run, with the ghosts of their past between them and a dark, desperate hunger quickly reclaiming their bodies and souls, Libby and Jaxon must discover the truth behind the dark forces working against them. Together, they must grab hold of a destiny that has the power to either heal them or destroy them.

But the truth is far more shattering than anyone could imagine . . .


Let me start off by saying, I love this cover! Hot! There are lots of twists and turns in this book, it sucks you in right from the start, I could not put this down. When the truth was revealed about Libby that was a hell of a surprise. It was sad that Jaxon went so long falsely believing that she had in fact betrayed him and caused the death of one of his team members, hating Libby and wanted her dead when it was all a misunderstanding. Jaxon and Libby were all over the place at times, on and off, leaving each other when they were suppose to stick together left right and centre. Once Libby gets her memory back that was blocked her demeanour changed from someone frail and defence-less into a kick-ass woman on a mission and if anyone were to get in her way they would be in for a world of pain. Jaxon started off being hard and slightly cruel towards Libby but when he finds out the truth he is remorseful and becomes more soft towards her and loving. The steamy scenes were well written and that bath scene, whew! Sometimes when a story contains an Alpha male the female lead follows his orders and does what is asked of her, not the case with Libby, she makes her own decisions. I really loved reading this.
