Fever by Joan Swan Review

When Dr. Alyssa Foster is taken hostage by a prison inmate, she knows she's in deep trouble. Not just because Teague Creek is desperate for freedom, but because the moment his fingers brush against her skin, Alyssa feels a razor-sharp pang of need...

A man with a life sentence has nothing to lose. At least Teague doesn't, until his escape plan develops a fatal flaw: Alyssa. On the run from both the law and deadly undercover operatives, he can only give her lies, but every heated kiss tells him the fire between them could be just as devastating as the flames that changed him forever

Been anticipating this book for some time! And ironically animals and family are working against my reading time!

On page 87 - Very gripping, nearly action packed from the beginning. Never once did I get bored, no information dump from the get go. Been picking up information here or there along the way for the pace to go rather smoothly.

Note: Alyssa is the type of heroine that I really like. No fragile flower there. She fights and straight up gives Teague a rough time of it.

The side character Taz is a straight up jerk (well worse but I'm keeping it clean). Though, I blame the author for singing along with him. I had the darn song stuck in my head.

On 272 and honestly I do NOT want this book to end! Fever definitely grabs you by the seat of the pants. And what a ride!

Alyssa and Teague's relationship (okay I am a fan of unusual and uncommon names, so yes I love Teague's name). Not too fast or too slow, nicely, believable pace that just helps the reader connect and fall in love with both of them.

There were several moments in the book that just makes you want to hug Teague. He's an alpha but there is also the soft, emotional side you see here or there. Nothing that takes his masculinity away.

Trying to articulate just how much I enjoyed this book from start to finish. Near the end I got a little teary eyed but by the time I finished the last word, I was smiling like a loon! All I can say... DAMN good book! So glad I got the chance to read it.

Now the burning question is... Luke and Mitch best be getting a book!!!! Yes, I want more!
