Feral Heat by Elizabeth Black
Amelia Scott is in the midst of divorcing her controlling jerk of a husband. Due to his lack of support, she is renting a room to Grant Newman. They have been co-workers for a while and she feels comfortable with the tall dark man, not to mention sexually attracted to him too. Unfortunately, she is also attracted to Grant’s lover. Sam Hightower is Grant’s polar opposite, he is also tall, but is leaner and very blond. This story takes place during the long weekend that Grant moves in.
Feral Heat is a very fast moving book. I will honestly have to say I have not read a werewolf story like this before. I would not consider this a romance either. It is erotic and the ménage scenes are hot. There is no happily ever after, but there is definitely a happily ever after for now. These are three consenting adults, who also happen to be friends.
I just couldn’t fall for any of the characters. Considering its short length it is very understandable, there was no time for character development. Well that is not true; Sam did start to grow on me. Amelia and Grant were just okay for me. Their relationship didn’t seem true to me. The story dynamics didn’t seem realistic to me either. I know, it is a paranormal book, but even within the world you are reading about you still need to believe in the story being told. I will say thought that my view of the book changed a bit after reading Ms. Black’s personal blurb at the end of the story. It stated, “she creates unusual worlds for her eccentric characters”, now that I believe.
I did enjoy reading the story, but I had to shake my head quite a few times at Amelia and Grant. But like I said, at the end I did step back and reevaluate the story and I now I see a “different colored” light at the end of the tunnel. Feral Heat will not be for everyone, but if you want a new twist to the same old same old then head on out and pick up it up. You will be drawn into an erotic world with unconventional werewolves and the woman that loves them. Oops sorry “enjoys” them.
