Our Review by LITERAL ADDICTION’s Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

It was great to have Maya and Wade back, and I just love David; I can’t wait for his book!

Jaguar Fever was a good book, a solid 3.5 Skull read, but I keep wondering if it might have been better for me to wait and read it after the editing and BETA reading process was finalized. There were several things that just didn’t feel very ‘Terry Spear’ like to me - characters a bit on the shallow, underdeveloped side, some sub-plotlines that felt a bit like they were put in and yet to be expanded upon, etc, but knowing it was an un-edited copy, I tried to look past all of that and see the final product’s potential.

What you get with Jaguar Fever is a sweet paranormal romance with a bit of action and lots of family dynamic. I absolutely love the big cats, and Terry writes them in that form beautifully. I’m not sure that anything will beat the heart and soul she has poured into her wolves over the years in my personal opinion, but I’m excited to keep reading about our Special Forces Jaguars and the feisty women they fall in love with… :)

Jaguar Fever is the second book of the series, but it would stand very well on its own. If you are a fan of shifter romance and adventure, I do recommend Jaguar Fever and its predecessor Savage Hunger.
