Publisher's Summary

Zuri Primrose hasn't been on a date since her divorce over a year ago. About to turn the big 4-0, she's living the life of a hermit without any sex. Her mother isn't going to let her daughter stay single for long. She's gotten Zuri an invite to a shifter ball where she hopes Zuri will find the man who’s going to screw her into a pretzel and give her a dozen babies. Zuri's sure her mom didn't expect for a shifter to up and toss her over his shoulder and run out. Nope. Mom so did not see that coming.

Savage McKane doesn't do parties. Or people. And he certainly doesn't do fancy clothing. But when his friend, the town sheriff, asks him to help as security for the event, he shows up despite his lack of desire to be there. He didn't expect to find his mate, nor the inability to control his animal, and run off with her. But now that he's got her, he's not going to let her go. His bear is demanding he keep her, and Savage is in full agreement.

Zuri and Sav might be complete opposites, but that doesn't stop the love growing between them. Zuri is realizing powerful truths about herself; she can’t live without him. But will she stay alive long enough to tell him? For Sav, nothing is more important than getting his mate to realize his love for her. He didn't run up a mountain with her on his shoulder just to let her walk away. He will happily tear anyone limb from limb who tries to stop him.

A little immature

I don't mind a short story every now and then. This one is just under 3 hours. However, I expect it to be a well developed short story; something that doesn't have a ton of conflict or need a ton of character development but still has a great tale to tell. Savage Bite just missed the mark for me. I really wanted to like it since I love bear shifter stories but every time I thought it was going somewhere it stopped. There was the potential for so much more. On more than one occasion I felt like the writer was really onto something but then just got distracted, almost. Also, the romance part of it - not the sex, I consider that separate - but the romance, all the butterflies and awws felt like it was written by a teenager for me. It was too over the top, too unrealistic. I would give Milly Taiden another shot because I felt like she has something in her, this just didn't quite get there.

Finally, another post-bite shifting mate.

I have been on a Milly Taiden rampage lately and have been loving it. The thing I found particularly interesting about this book is that Zuri is able to shift after being bitten. That's only happened two other times in all of the Taiden books I've read, and both were with alpha wolf triads. Never had anyone other than the mate of a wolf changed in the first 12 books of the Paranormal Dating Agency series, the first 6 books of the Fur-ocious Lust series, or in Alpha Bet (no series). It's something I've wondered about on many occasions and I was excited to see it happen in this book. It just makes me curious why only two of the wolf triads in the PDA series created a human female mate able to shift and none of the other matings. I'm super curious to see if this phenomenon continues in the next books in the series, Savage Kiss and Savage Hunger. I can't wait to find out! (This book is HEA with no cliffhanger. It can be read as a stand-alone.)

Her best book by far

This is a good story and steamy as well the characters are developed and likable. I will check out the other books in this series and hope they hold up to this one.

Milly Taiden Does It Again!

I am loving Milly Taiden!! She is giving me the shifter alpha male and females that make me swoon, fan myself, and fall in love with. In this story you have Zuri who got divorced after 10 years of marriage and illness only to be roped into a shifter party by her mother. Savage is the alpha bear shifter of the mountain in Zuri's town and reluctantly attends the same party. As most shifter stories go he scents her as his mate and she freaks out when a psycho tries to interfere but in the end things get worked out. This was a fun, sexy, sweet, swoony ride that I was glad to take. I am looking forward to reading the stories about Zuri's sisters as well.

This specific video review will be included in the December 2018 wrap-up.
