Publisher's Summary

Bred by capricious parents for his innate leopard-shifting abilities, billionaire Jake Bannaconni has spent his life in an emotional vacuum - especially after a tragic twist of fate left him to raise his infant son alone. But when his path crosses that of an enigmatic young woman, Jake’s life takes a detour he never fathomed.

There is something irresistible about Emma Reynolds - something Jake can’t live without. Hiring her as his son’s nanny will keep her close. And warm. And under watch. She’s the first human to stir something in Jake, something he’s never felt before. But Emma may not be all that she seems. And what’s raging between them is pure animal instinct - out of control, burning wild, and as hot as the lick of a flame.

Spot-on: listen to more titles in Christine Feehan's Leopard series.

    "Surprising"

    Another good read by Ms. Feehan. It was terribly disturbing to see how sick, twisted, cruel and obsessed a persons family can be. But to be raised in that type of environment and come out sane is truly a miracle. Thankfully Jake, one of the main characters had one family member who over time proved he was unlike the others and pointed Jake in the right direction. The saying is true you can't pick your family but you can pick your friends; the truth of this is shown clearly in this story. The love that unfolds and develops here is not what you will be expecting this is more of a take over.

    "Not Phil Gigante"

    I love this book and was looking forward to the audio, then I saw Phil Gigante was the narrator, but it's not, it's Jeffrey Cummings. Little disappointed it's not Gigante but hoping I like this narrator anyway.

    "Burning Wild was very disturbing"

    This book was very different from the first two and I found it disturbing. The sex was just as raw which I have no problem with but the domineering, manipulative, controlling attitude of Jake towards Emma and the subservient, submissive, surrendering attitude of Emma's was a classic abuser/abused relationship. It was hard to listen to. The first 1/2 hour of the book describes the abuse Jake suffered during his childhood which was well written and therefore also hard to listen to.

    This story took place on a Texas ranch, not the lush, sensual, moody rain forest of the first two books. The leopard theme was not as integral a part of the story either.

    The narrator did a pretty good job but I would say that the way he performed this made it feel rawer.

    It's not a book I will listen to again as I might the others, but I don't know that I can say that I don't recommend it either. I was glad when it was over but I didn't consider not finishing it.

    "love the story"
    Would you try another book from Christine Feehan and/or Jeffrey Cummings?

    I love Christine Feehan's stories but I will not try another book narrated by Jeffrey Cummings. I have read Burning wild several times but I could not listen to the whole audiobook.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    the voices that he gave to the characters were not enjoyable. The female character, Emma, was too breathy and weak and the male character, Jake, sounded a lot like Christian Bale doing Batman and too gravely.


    Do you think Burning Wild needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    The leopard series is enough the way it is.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to try this audiobook with a different narrator.

    Story
    "Jake is the ultimate leopard."

    This was the first book of this series that I read and by far my favorite. I have the paper back which is marked for the 'best parts.' Jake and Emma make you want them to succeed. I found this story one of my favorites and it is why I bought the earlier books and have continued to buy the books as they have been published. Christine Feehan is a terrific story teller and the Leopard People is one of her best series.

    Jake is richer than most and ruthless as are most of the leopards in these books. I like the story told here about Jake and Emma and their experiences. If you like strong men not afraid to be strong, these books are for you. There is no abusiveness but there is some manipulation on Jake's part and there is lots of sex.

    Jeffrey Cummings is a good narrator and has a strong voice which is needed for the storyline.

    "Disappointed in this Feehand effort"
    Would you try another book from Christine Feehan and/or Jeffrey Cummings?

    Yes because I've read a number of other Feehan works which were quite good.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jeffrey Cummings???s performances?

    Maybe, but not for a book of this type.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I think the combination of the thin delivery, and shallower then usual characters combined to make it hard to even get through this one, let alone enjoy it.
