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.)

Send me a bear shifter any pls

I need to start off with a huge Hank you to Milky. Writing love stories for bbw are so beautiful. I love feeling a connection with the heroine of the story. Zuri and Savage were just beautiful together. Lauren Sweet brought the goods. She brings familiarity to the characters of the story.

That was interesting

I would give this a higher rating, but to many things bothered me about this audiobook. Mainly the spacing for the chapters. Sometimes a chapter would end in the middle of a conversation and then the next chapter would pick up where the previous one left off. I thought that maybe I was hearing wrong, but the in the middle of a chapter there would be a complete change. Like the chapter should have ended and didn't. It was a good story, but I just couldn't get fully immersed because of the chapter spacing issue.

Good story, short and to the point.

I enjoyed Zuri and Savage's journey to happily ever after. Lots of fun side characters. well written short story that felt like a full bo8and did not lack in the storytelling. I'll continue with the series.

Fantastic story!

Love this story, but I wish the whole series was available in audio. There are 2 more stories to this series about the other sisters that would really round out this story line. Since only the first is available, I only borrowed it with audible escape instead of buying it.
