"Burning Wild" [Leopard Series, Book 3] by Christine Feehan

My Book Summary : Jake's parents abused him throughout his childhood. They created him so he could have what they were missing, which was the ability to shapeshift into a leopard. They really never loved him at all. Once he was born, he made sure that they never really knew that their experiment worked, so as soon as he was old enough he left not allowing his parents to be able to use him.

Years later Jake has made a name for himself, is a multimillionaire (or possibly in the billions now), and he has been fighting corporate and strategy battles against his family ever since he left always staying one step ahead of them, as they have yet to give up whatever control on him they can find but lately it's not much or barely anything at all. However, they had sent a women to seduce him, even though he knew that she came from them, he slept with her and now she's pregnant with his child. His parents plan was that now this girl was pregnant it would force Jake to marry the girl, but he was having none of that. In addition, he might not love the child but he would never let his parents have his child either. So, he plans on taking the girl until the baby is born, especially since the girl is already not taking care of herself for the baby's sake. But that is easier said then done, when your in a car chase after the girl and her drunk boyfriend swerving down the highway. The girl and the boyfriend get into a head-on collision with another car and Jake steps into action ... finding that the boyfriend is dead, paramedics trying to save the girl and her baby ... Jake pulls out a woman from the other car, and is immediately drawn to her.

At the hospital he finds that his son has survived, the girl has died, and he already starts making plans to find out more about the woman he saved from the car, wanting to bring her into his life. But Jake doesn't trust anyone, doesn't plan or want to love anyone, so he plans on making her fall in love with his son and once he finds she has no family plans on taking her home with him.

Emma, the woman from the other car, is totally lost. She was planning on telling her husband that she was pregnant that day when the car crash happened, but now he's dead and she's all alone. Thankfully the doctors informed her that the baby is fine, but what will she do? So, when Jake steps in, she lets him take over since she really doesn't have anyone. After a couple of weeks in the hospital, she agrees to move into Jake's house to be his housekeeper and take care of Jake's son.

Two more years pass and Emma has made Jake's house a home, his son and her daughter call them both Mommy & Daddy, even though Emma & Jake are just friends. But the attraction between them has grown. Now has come the time for them to find out if their friendship can move into a relationship both want but are scared to commit too.

Then there are Jake's parents still after him and everything he has (including his son & Emma's daughter) and they will stop at nothing to get their way. Will Jake be able to keep a hold of his burrowing feelings for Emma and his children away for long? Will they be able to have a relationship, when Jake is the type to control everything? Will Jake be able to protect Emma and his kids from those people who would love to use them against him?

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!!! Very well written!! I was addicted from the beginning and I couldn't put it down! I loved how Jake's childhood was written in a way that you got to see flashes of him growing up, from birth to him being thirty, so you could understand why he doesn't trust anyone or why he believes himself to be so cruel. And Emma is a mystery all on her own, you believe she is one thing and then suddenly her whole back story comes out from no where! LOVED it I did! =0)

Author Book Trailer :

Book Teaser(s) :
"If she's a slut, what does that make you?" Emma demanded, almost spitting mad. "She isn't the only woman you have falling all over herself to have sex with you."
Her eye were beautiful, almost glowing, like two dazzling emerald jewels. He wouldn't have been surprised if sparks flew at him at any moment. "The difference is, Linda would sell her soul to the highest bidder and uses sex to try to get what she wants."
"And you don't?"
"Not yet. But believe me, honey, that's going to happen soon. Now tell me what the hell went on and how the children got involved."
"Go to hell." Her temper rose to meet his. ~ within Chapter 9
