Review: Savage Heat by Mandy Monroe

Savage Heat by Mandy Monroe

Publisher: New Concepts Publishing
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Heat Rating: 3



They were still naked. They were still gorgeous. And, according to them, she was their soul mate.

Emma suspected the pheromone she'd used to help the wolves she studied to breed had some hallucinogenic properties to it. That was the only thing that could possibly explain how three wolves that cornered her in the woods could suddenly transform into men--hunks. That or she'd been alone in the woods for far too long doing her research. But, really, did it make sense that they turned into men, three extremely handsome men that argued over who she belonged to?

“You're mine.”

Dante, Caden, and Shane knew instantly when they had found their mate. There was just one problem, none of them wanted to share.

Yadkny’s Review

Emma is a scientist desperately trying to help increase the numbers in the local wolf population. She creates a spray-on pheromone and uses it on a she-wolf to see if the male wolves will take to it. Her experiment is a success, but takes on a life of its own when three male wolves begin sniffing around her! Having accidentally splashed some of the pheromone on herself, Emma believes that eventually they will recognize her human scent and leave her alone, but what happens when the three wolves turn into three men?

Dante, Caden, and Shane are Alphas to three of the largest packs around, but they have their work cut out for them when they meet Emma. Instinctively each of them recognizes her as their mate, but sharing her wasn’t what they had in mind. Fate has other plans for the Alphas and as they work through their sharing issues, convincing Emma of her role in their lives seems all but impossible. The woman in Emma believes them when they say they love her and that she is their mate, but the scientist in Emma can’t fathom why or how it’s even possible.

If you’re looking for a short story with spectacular romps in the woods with three gorgeous Alpha wolf shifters, then this story is for you! Mandy Monroe does a fantastic job with the sexual content, keeping it fresh without being repetitive. The storyline is unique, but felt incomplete and the climax fell short. So many questions still remain and I would love to have seen this story novel size in order to get the answers. The potential for an unforgettable story is there and although it lacks in some areas, overall it was still quite the read.

The reader will easily identify with the emotional turmoil that Emma goes through battling between her womanly and scientific instincts. The men have it no easier when their personalities and differences of opinion on how to handle Emma come to the surface. Those differences end up making them the perfect mate for Emma. It also doesn’t hurt that throughout the entire story the men are naked! You would think eventually that would be awkward, but you get used to it. This was a great afternoon read and I’ll be on the lookout for more books by this exceptional author.
