Tempting the Tiger Reviews

    1 star I am sad to give this book such a low rating. I originally posted a negative review (back in December) but then deleted it after communicating with the author when she said she was going to edit the scene that sickened me. Anyway, I waited many months to post a review again, but finally realized I might as well. I never heard back from her so I am assuming she decided to keep it as is. That is totally fine. Of course! It is her book and she should write what she wants! (***I did not ask her to change anything at all. I actually asked her for more insight into the scene so I could understand it better. She voluntarily said she was going to edit it, but apparently changed her mind. ***If you read my spoiler, keep in mind that most readers had no issue.Anyway, I was really enjoying this book very much, but then came the scene: (view spoiler)[ When Amia (the heroine) and Reno (the hero) get to where Reno's pride is, there is a scene involving two of the other men -- one of them is hero in a later book. These two men, Murphy and Finn, are abusive and violent with Amia. (Reno is not present during this). Amia had done NOTHING physically aggressive; she was noticeably afraid and non-combative. All she did was say something ambiguous that was misconstrued as threatening; no one even questioned further to find out what she meant. SO..... Finn and Murphy slammed her head against the wall twice and threw her into a room where her head slammed hard into something else (I think a metal table, but can't recall for sure). Any of those actions could have easily killed her. Those men were probably twice her weight, they were in control, and she was no physical threat. It shocked me to see supposedly heroic characters being so violent and abusive to a helpless, frightened woman, a stranger they had no personal history with and knew practically nothing about. (Not to mention she had been severely victimized her whole life).I was REALLY disturbed by this scene. Their actions were pretty unforgivable and crossed a line no man should ever cross. I know that Finn is a hero in a future book. I just don't quite understand how men who are willing to violently harm a much smaller, defenseless woman can be viewed as romance heroes. Across the world we have a huge problem with violence against women, and part of the reason why is that we women make excuses for men to hurt us.Their misplaced violence against Amia was totally glossed over afterward. The characters only reference feeling bad for locking her in a dark room (which triggers a severe PTSD reaction in her). No one talked about slamming her head three times and possibly killing her.(hide spoiler)]I am writing this review 9 months after reading it and I still remember the scene and feel sickened. I am wondering how other women, who have lived in a home with violence, feel about this story. Maybe it works better for people who have no experience with it.

    good characters and story but lack of closure is a total deal breaker here Ok so the story and characters were impressive. The sex was hot. It wasn’t as out of control as in the first book but it still had some steam and I think I preferred the sex in this book over the first. My problem is, as soon as things started getting good it just ended? I went to turn the page and it was the authors note. Wtf!!! This just pissed me off. I get that this is a series, but when I was done with this one it just felt incomplete. I can even accept a cliffhanger on occasion, but this wasn’t even that. It just ended without any warning at a spot where you expect to have more on the next page, only there is was a very odd way to end a book and was quite frustrating. To pay $4.99 for a 200 page book that ends so abruptly did not leave me a happy camper. While I admit the writing was good and this series has great potential I'm skeptical to continue a series that ends [email protected] like this. I doubt I'll continue onto the next book. Even though I really did like this hero and heroine the lack of closure and price tag for this short read left a bad vibe for me.

    Quick, smexy read, bordering on erotica with a underlying, ongoing plot. Some OTT evilness. Some OTT possessive Hero. Likeable side characters. Will continue the series when in the mood for some Alpha's who growl, "Mine."

    Here's the thing, we know all along that Reno is a tiger, it is right there in the title, right? So if that is the case, then why is it such a secret or unknown in the book? That's a just wondering thing that was niggling at me, so had to put it out thereThe story, oh, the story, Amia broke my heart. Right from the start, she was so.... abused, there is no way around it. Made hopeless over time, but still determined to fight on, terrified of what happens to her, but continuing to take the actions that cause it to happen. She is the true hero in this book, and she gets that distinction above all others because of thisReno is your typical over-protective, alpha, male shifter who has found his mate. I loved him for his dedication and unwavering support for Amia. His beast is strong, but the human he is even just as strong, showing he, the person, is in control. These two are dynamite together, and while the story doesn't end on a cliff hanger, you are waiting for the next installment to get more story at the end.

    I definitely like this one better than the 1st book in the series. I like the build of the shifter world but I feel like it is too rushed. The MCs' just jumped to it but as a paranormal romance series, overall I think it is a nice, quick, steamy read. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

    This review is going to be really short because why should I write a complete review when the book just stoYep, it just ends out of nowhere. Extremely unsatisfying and leaves me with absolutely no desire to continue series. No cliffhanger. We didn't even get to the cliff. We were just on the trail and then lights out.Here are my notes that I tagged on my ereader:1. Is soundproofing a barn necessary and by a bunch of hicks...huh? A lot was made about how this barn was soundproofed but it's a barn in the bad guys complex located remotely in a small town.2. It really didn't make sense that these super-hick bad guys were incredibly sophisticated when it came to their operation of "kill dem unholy shifters". In fact, these hillbillies were so much more sophisticated than the educated hero's that it made no sense. And as a southerner, I really appreciate when an author makes the Colorado hick bad buys have a southern accent. Thanks so much for that stereotype! Sooo original!!!3. Anal unrealistic. Yes, that's my note. Easy-in anal really annoys me and takes the taboo out of anal which is lame.Overall: Complete waste of time and author should be ashamed. Harsh but true.-Spuffed, "Half stars are for pansies and one gif is plenty."

    3.5 stars. I enjoyed the first book more, but this one was good. It just had a lot of hard/depressing subject matter (view spoiler)[major abuse (hide spoiler)] and the push/pull got old. I was also disappointed in her treatment by his friends. It definitely continues the series. While each couple gets together in one book, the storyline is not completed and requires you to read the next installment. However, it does not affect the couple's HFN or HEA.

    3.5 Stars Good but I would have liked to have seen less sex and more story. Leans heavily toward erotica and there wasn't a lot of progression plot wise. I felt shortchanged...

    A whole lot of hotness! This is the second book in the series and so worth the read. This series is a little on the dark side with the Hunters but the love that spills of the page among the friends more than make it easier to read. I will definitely read the next book!

    I devoured Lacey Thorn's newest release, Tempting the Tiger and I still wanted more. Her Awakening Pride series has become one of my favorites. The author brought forth so many different emotions with this story that I could not put it down and became so invested in what was happening with all the characters. It was gut wrenching and heartbreaking to see what her heroine, Amia Blane, had to endure at the hands of her murderous family of hunters. I loved how strong, brave and unselfish she was in helping to free shifters despite knowing what would happen to her once she was caught. Those scenes were detailed so vividly that I could imagine her pain. I had liked Reno when he appeared in book 1 and was intrigued at what his story would be. I was not disappointed and I fell more in love with him as he and Amia fell in lust with each other after she saved him. Their chemistry was sizzling and the sex scenes were so scorching hot, hot, hot. I enjoyed how protective they were of each other and the rest of the pride family. I also loved the bond that Reno had with pride leader and best friend, Tah and the potential conflict if he had to choose between his mate and best friend. Reno also showed his romantic side behind his alpha maleness and he had me swooning when he declared to Amia that she was his heart, his soul, his mate *sigh* The author wrote some amazing and heartfelt lines in this story. I loved that we got to see more of Tah and Abby and witness more of their love for each other and also seeing the remaining characters and their involvement in protecting their "family". I cannot wait to read the next book which should be Logan's story.

    4 1/2 stars.Amia Blane has known pain that only few can imagine. Being the daughter to one of the known hunter families she was expected to be an asset and help. Instead she became a weakness and one that prevented the Blane's from killing. But Amia is determined as long as she lives to save as many people as she can from the clutches of her family. **My whole life I never knew a man like you existed. You are mine, Reno. You fill my heart, soothe my soul and fill me with wonder at what can be. I never dreamed of you or wished for you....You take all broken pieces of me and make them whole. You make me whole. For me, there will always be you."**Reno knows there is something different in him. After almost dying he knew he had to find his friend Utah Pierce. However, he never expected the journey they would be going through. When his mission goes wrong he ends up in the hands of hunters determined to kill him. But the lovely Amia saves him, and doesn't realize just how much she tempts this other being inside him. **"You tempted the beast awake, and now only you can control him."**I actually loved this story. The sex was off the charts, not as much as the first, but no less steamy and hot. The only thing that prevented me from giving 5 stars was the quick anal session. I'm all for anal in my books, but I don't think it's realistic for someone who's never done that to not have any work-up and do it within one day.

    More like 3.5 starsReno goes to do some reconnaissance on some hunters that threaten the pack, when he gets captured and tortured. In comes Amia to save him from the family that has done the same, and worse, to her. Reno immediately wants her and wants to protect her, but she resists because she knows that her family will be after her, and they always find her. What I didn't like about this is that she said "why doesn't he understand"...but she's not trying to MAKE him understand. Telling him the whole story would help everybody involved...letting him know how they always find her, and they could have maybe figured out why sooner (but it sure took them long enough even though they ares supposed to be former military). I liked the fact that Reno was all like "mine" but when asked about the mating he denied it, and that could have saved both he and Amia more agony. The sex was hawt! Warning, there is some anal, but I personally thought it was sexy.I would to know more about the Jess that was mentioned and her mating with 4 wolves, but I couldn't find a book about them. I hope this is explored later.Overall this book was good, but it's obviously a part of a series since there is not a satisfactory conclusion, and things that were in the first book about the legend aren't explained in this book. I'm hooked, though

    I really enjoyed Reno in the second installment of Lacey Thorn’s Awakening Pride series. I loved his interaction and loyalty to his friends and was excited to learn that he would be next to have his story told. It was obvious that there was something different about Reno but I loved that the focus was less on his “other” characteristics and more on the character of the man. And his strength and ideals were further showcased when he met Amia. He knew Amia was his in spite of her family. She totally fit him. She had a bedrock of honesty and a strong ethic. She fought to preserve life even if that life was different. I loved that regardless of the consequences she did what was right. Both Reno and Amia were fully developed characters. They both had an inner strength and determination to fight the good fight. I loved that Reno fought for Amia and Amia fought equally as hard for Reno. Ms. Thorn balanced these characters remarkably well all while allowing the chemistry they had to grow naturally. In Tempting the Tiger, Ms. Thorn gave us a well written and enjoyable story. I am looking forward to seeing what happens next in this series. Four Twinkling Stars!!

    4 & a half stars. I was really surprised that there wasn't any closure with the hunters. it really does end suddenly. & I was disappointed that there wasn't a fight at the end like with Abby against her uncle in the first book.... but with that said, I loved this book. I love Reno. I didn't think I would like any of the others in the series as much as Tah, but I do really really like Reno. a lot. and Amia is so strong! I really enjoyed her character. she is so brave for everything she endured with her family. and with everything they put her through. I can't wait to see Reno get his revenge for his mate...and I can't wait to see what Clara knows, and how Logan will fit into it all. and if course follow Abby and see the birth of the baby!!

    Reno I loved him, "he rocked into her again. "I'll let you be the judge of how pretty my c*** is." Amia brings out his animal, "are we sharing the shower?" Just like that his c*** was rigid again, and damned if a sound like a effing purr didn't rumble from his chest." Amia is the only one that can soothe him and his beast that's what I love about this series, only their mates can calm them down, "she turned to Reno and rubbed her hand over his chest in an attempt to soothe him and was rewarded when the growl shifted into a purr." I hope the next book in this series comes out fast, I'm in love with the men in these books.

    I was eager to read this 2nd of the series when I stumbled upon Lacey Thorn's PNR books. So now in this installment we see Reno and Amia. I liked them as a couple. amia had a lot of issues she had to deal with. And Reno's inner beast comes out. And of course he's very possessive as all alpha males are. I loved his friendship with Tah (the head of their pride). Even when Reno gets mad at Tah he still keeps himself in check because he knows Tah is the leader. We also get to see what has happened between Tah and Abby since the last book. Overall this was a good installment to the series and I can't wait to read up on the other Pride members.

    Hot paranormal romanceThe second book in this shifter series; it was as good as the first. Ms Thorne's books are very erotic. This series also adds suspense as the shifters know nothing about their abilities to shift or about their beasts. They are being hunted and killed by a group of hunters. These are their stories of survival and growing knowledge. As a shifter finds his mate he is driven by insatiable need making the sex scenes hot and explicit. I am looking forward to the next book in the series!

    Awesome series!Awesome series!when I read the first book in the series I was hooked. I was so excited when the second one came out I bought it and when I sat down to read it I couldn't put it down. Amia's story broke my heart, I couldn't help but cry. The romance and steamy sex between her and Reno, OMG!!! Awesome is all I can say! Lacey is such a talented writer and she reels you in at the beginning of her stories. I will definitely read the next in her series.

    This was a good addition to the series. I enjoy watching each of the characters become more dynamic as time goes on. This is one of the more interesting characters and the plot moves along at a nice clip. Watching as Reno finds life, love, and expresses his purpose so beautifully was truly a joy. There was a larger quantity of sex in this book and it became much more graphic. Not what I was reading for, but it only detracted from the plot a little.

    Loved this book. This is the second book in this series and I couldn't put it down once I started. I couldn't believe how brutal Amia's family was. When Reno was sent to look into her family's farm I knew trouble would start and the action just flowed from the pages from there. This story has it all strong characters, surprising plots twists and hot sex. I recommend this book to anyone that loves paranormal books.

    I really am loving this series so far. The concept of shifters is different and refreshing. The intimate scenes are still a little awkward but are getting better. The ending of this book, major cliff hanger and was very abrupt. For me, this did not take away from the story for me. But in the next book I would like some of the loose ends tied up. Clara, hunters, other shifters, everything is just left out in the open but not explained. I will continue to follow the series.

    She did it again! Lacey thorn wrote a fabulous book that I couldn't put down! This time the story centers around HOT alpha shifter Reno and his unsuspecting mate, Amia. The two of them together are combustible. There's nothing better than a good back story to suck you into a book and Thorn more than delivers. Amia's story pushed my emotional buttons and kept me on my toes to the very end. Well done Lacey Thorn!

    Second book in series.need to read them in order.This is a great paranormal series you have got to read. Hot sexy shifter,destined mate,bad men chasing after them,great sex scenes.This book has a great story and is not all about sex.Well written had me hooked from page one once again.This series reminds me a little of The Breeds series which i absolutely love. I really hope i do not have to wait too long for book 3 to come out cause i really wanna know more about Logan and his mate.

    This is book #2 in a series but I did not read the first one. This book started off really really strong for me. There was a great heroine, a really evil bad guy, interesting story and some sexy stuff. About the time the sex came in it was like the story couldn't continue because all of the different ways they had sex was way too important. And though it is a very nice sentiment, I could have done without all of the "i'd die without you" crap...there was just too much.

    Too short I need more!!!!Not the ending I was prepared for, actually, very abrupt but well, it just mean the sequel will pick it up from there.Reno and Amia are like fireworks, all sparkles and heat. Not as much as Abby and Tah as they are not in heat yet but still... wow hot!!!I love the characters and how close they all are. I can't wait to discover who shifts and in what!!

    Really enjoyed this book. I think Reno and Amia may have been more complex characters than Abby and Utah, and Amia's personal history was certainly darker, but the story was every bit as entertaining as the previous book in the series. Liked the writing style, the pacing, and the suspense surrounding the Hunters. Looking forward to Clara's story.

    It started out good. Very good.. but it went off as it goes, esp at the end part. I was like, is that it? So.. nothing major. Tho the hotness is commendable. Lacey Thorn really knew her craft and vera well. x
