Reading Until Dawn

Review requests currently closed

Our review request pile is currently closer to a mountain, and we're kind of afraid it's going to fall on our heads and bury us all in a massive book avalanche. Until we can get through the majority of the TBR list we have right now, we at MKR are currently unable to accept any new review requests.

Review: Falke’s Captive by Madison Layle & Anna Leigh Keaton

Falke's Captive (Puma Nights)

A graduate student working in animal genetics, Beth Coldwell is in town to track and tag big cats in the wild. Her prospects for the summer only improve when she meets Kelan and Reidar Falke and decides the sexy brothers are the right pair to fulfill her other, less than scientific, desires…

But her research is a threat to the Falke family secret. When Kelan, in cougar form, is captured, that secret comes closer than ever to being revealed. He escapes, but not before Beth draws a blood sample, and analysis shows this is no ordinary mountain lion.

Kelan and Reidar cannot deny the powerful attraction they feel toward Beth. She might just be their destined mate. But if they reveal themselves to her, will she embrace who they are or see them as just another science experiment?

There is a family of cougars (mountain lions)… two sets of triplets, from what I remember… a lot of kids. One is a girl who is a non-shifter and she’s a vet. The small tiny town has somehow accepted the fact that this family has a pet cougar and has always had a pet cougar in the family, despite the fact that you can’t domesticate a cougar (even putting him on a leash, which the town requires when they’re in the city limits).

Beth, a college student who is doing a research project, comes to town with a guy named Tim who irritated the crap out of me throughout the entire book, and their professor is supposed to be following in a few days.

Beth manages to shoot one of the brothers (Kelan) in the butt with a tranq dart while he was in cougar form. She brought him to the research trailer and locked him in a cage… after already having sex with him and his brother (Reidar) – which squicks me out. They don’t touch each other, but I don’t do well with stories that have the same family in a ménage. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good ménage, but if there’s blood involved (running through their veins… and blood play, ew) then I usually run the other way.

Despite the fact that there were two brothers involved in this ménage, I really enjoyed the book. There was a good storyline, there was intense chemistry between the brothers and Beth. I did think it was a little weird that she was human and basically immediately realized that she was meant to be with both of these brothers for life as quickly as she did, but hey – it’s a book. And it somehow worked.

I’d give this a higher rating, but because of the brothers issue, I’m going to have to give this a 3.5 out of 5 meows.
