As you all know I read on buses because I can zone out on the way to college and home. Well on Monday I was on the bus flicking through all of my ebooks that I haven't read yet, I looked and looked until I just gave up for about five minutes. I got board listening to my mp3 player so I went back to my kindle and went into the folder I have for all of Felicity Heaton's novels I have on my kindle, and I looked at the newest one I got which was IN HEAT. I remembered it was about shifters and I do love a good shifter story. So I thought 'what the hell? I'll give it a go.' Now I am in love with Erik. So before I give you my review here is the book cover and description! :D
A heat wave isn’t the only thing making London too hot for lawyer Kim. She’s been spending each night with a man who sets her body and heart on fire. The problem? He’s a man that always sprouts black fur and purrs, and he’s only a dream. Walking into work on the hottest day of the year, the last thing she expects is to meet Erik, a man who sends her temperature soaring and who resembles her dream guy exactly.
A black panther shape-shifter, Erik Blackwell has been searching for his mate for twenty-seven years. The visions they share each night are getting hotter but finding her is proving impossible as he’s never seen her face. That is, until it turns out she’s working as his lawyer on his contract negotiations with his brother, Alistair.
Kim can’t deny her attraction to Erik. The heat she feels with him is intense and it’s only a matter of time before they surrender to their desires, but something haunts her. Is Erik really the man of her dreams? If so, can he grow fur and purr? And what about the terrible feeling she has about Alistair and the contract? How far is he willing to go to get his hands on the company Erik owns?
What will Kim do when she discovers Erik’s secret? Will she turn her back on him, or will she complete the mating and become like him so they can be together forever?
OMG! This book is soooo steamy! I love that Felicity hasn't stuck to the normal shifter mating. I love how she has created a different kind. A normal shifter mating is scenting you mate, wooing her, making love to her while biting into her shoulder thus marking her as yours. That is how it's meant to be but Felicity has changed the rules a little. Erik and Kim have been dreaming of each other for years, hot steamy dreams, and that is the only way to know that you have a mate. The hard part is finding him or her and keeping them. I love it when authors go outside of the Paranormal Norm box. I loved the sex scene in the book because I want to make Erik purr! I had to shield my kindle when I was reading the sex scenes on the bus lol!! I thought the family feud between the Blackwell brothers was really good, I really like it when you have a good brother and bad brother. It reminds me of Cinderella and her evil step-sisters but in this case it would be CinderErik and his evil step puma brother lol This novel is 100% awesome and I recommend it to any Shifter fans!
