Review for A Jaguar's Kiss by Katie Reus

Title: A Jaguar's Kiss
Author: Katie Reus

Description: Owen Wright, alpha of his wolf pack, hasn’t seen jaguar shifter Gabriela Segura in nearly ten years. She was his first love—until he did something to drive her away just as their relationship was heating up. Now Gabriela has returned to Montana, and his craving for her is stronger than ever….

But a recent string of brutal attacks on humans have the wolves suspicious of the jaguars, threatening the tenuous peace between the packs. Before he can claim Gabriela as his mate, they must join forces to prove her family’s innocence and track down the true predator

My Thoughts: Returning home after ten years away for a much needed break, Gabriela who happens to be  a C.I.A  Agent last mission went awry and left her shaken. Sure she isn't to thrilled about possibly running into her ex.... the one who broke her teenage heart all those years ago, but nothing a little avoidance can't help. Only she didn't realize she was coming home to a lot of suspicions aimed at the Jaguars in the town which happen to be her family.Owen who is the alpha of the pack for Bear Mountain has not forgotten the one girl who he fell for. She has remained in his thoughts. Although, Owen knows it will be hard to convince Gabriela of what they can have in the middle of trying to prove her family is innocent to the pack. He does know that he is not willing to lose her again.
Ok where to begin.....First I love shifter books. In this case, it has a mix of both of my favorite sexy wolf in Owen and fierce jaguar in Gabriela. Reus does manage to draw me into a world full of high emotions, love that was never lost, and passion. Since this is a novella it is a short which makes the fact that the characters have a prior history which is a great addition. Owen is so freakin' alpha in all his sexiness, and there is also a soft and sweet side for Gabriela. He has always wondered what happened, but has determination to win Gabriela back that makes you get a happy feeling inside. Gabriela is the leading lady and I really enjoyed her role. She is fierce! A fighter! She is willing to do what it takes for those she loves. When her and Owen come together it is pretty steamy. I loved how Reus made this novella suspenseful and intriguing with trying to figure it out the mystery. Normally, if I can figure it out in the beginning I would be bored. This time Reus had me guessing till the end and I liked the final outcome. I will say I enjoyed the whole book and with a bit more action from the villains it would have been insanely good, but for a novella Reus rocked it.
