Out of the jungle, into a billionaire's compound (of course it's a billionaire; it's a romance novel). The sex part was a bit much for me. I generally skim the sexy bits anyway (they get old after a while) but these ones I just tried to avoid entirely. Not really into reading about the humiliation and dominance games. I get that the Leopard men are controlling and jealous, but this was way over the top.more
By the end of the story I wasn't sure that Jake Bannaconni's issues would allow him to have a fully rounded relationship with Emma Reynolds. He overpowers her, doesn't give her choices and wonders why she resents his actions. Kidnapping and disallowing reasonable choices is not the actions of love, they're a twisted version of love.Scarily, even though I was having issues with the story, I also found it a compelling read, but afterwards I felt a bit uneasy and like I'd eaten too many cheap sweets.The characters are interesting the story dragged me in, but I wouldn't call what they have a healthy relationship by any means, and definitely not a relationship to emulate.more
Let me start out by saying that I own almost everything Christine Feehan has ever written. I do enjoy her books and the worlds she creates. However, I am not sure why I still own this book. For me, the actual romance takes far too long to start, the hero is kind of a dick, and I am not wholly convinced these two are made for each other. This book was just a miss as far as I am concerned. I especially didn't like hearing about other women he has been with or, in the hero's words, women he "let blow him a couple times." Just not what I want in my romances. The heroine wasn't too bad, but it sure did take her a while to find her spine. This also another one of her books that gives us characters with horrible back stories--this has been happening a lot with Feehan recently and is the reason I own "almost" all she has written. For the first real book in her Leopard series, I didn't enjoy it much and was more intrigued with side characters.more
this was better read then I thought it was going to be, but it slightly lost its wat towards the end for memore

This was one of my first forays into shape shifting romance and let me say I was a bit apprehensive. However, I loved this book. I loved Jake's character, he is the ultimate Alpha male and Emma balances him perfectly. This book was super hot and I will be definitely reading the rest of this series.In a nutshell, Jake is a shape shifter (leopard) who feels unloved and is therefore, cold and a bit embittered. Through an accident he meets Emma and feels connected to her. He manipulates her into coming to live with him and be his son's nanny. Emma in turn helps Jake find love and be at one with the beast in him and in his own way Jake helps Emma find her true self.more
I read Burning Wild quickly, in just a matter of hours. I found myself turning page after page, hoping to find that Jake Bannaconni would learn how to love Emma and his children. It took almost the entire book, but he finally came around! Jake was so unyielding that he was difficult to read at times. I kept waiting to see if Emma could soften him, but he pretty much remained rigid throughout the entire book. Jake was not exactly a "likable" character, but Emma more than makes up for that. Also, Feehan has added a few familiar characters from Borneo - Drake, Joshua, and Cooper - to help teach Jake about being a leopard.I didn't like Burning Wild as much as the previous books in the series, and I think that is completely the fault of Jake. I really didn't like him and I felt bad that anyone had to be around him. Burning Wild is a hard read, much darker than previous books. Jake suffers terrible physical and emotional abuse as a child at the hands of the people who should have loved and protected him, and it shapes his life irrevocably leaving him a cold, and tormented hero. I'm eager to get back into the series and back to the jungle! I'm enjoying the series so far and can't wait to see which storyline Feehan will create next. She has given us lots of possibilities for new heroes in the first three installments of the leopard series, and there are several storylines that I'd be interested in reading in the future.more
