I really loved Acat and Chaob. They are great friends and their personalities work perfectly together - a very well balanced pair full of confidence. But when they finally are sent on a mating hunt and find Carlie is their prize - they wonder if something may be wrong. Not only is she not a native - which if frowned upon - but she refuses to settle down and be a "good little woman." Watching Carlie but her new mates through hell as she insists on answers and turns the tables on their tactics a few times was a lot of fun.

Warning: Hot, steamy threesomes, chauvinism and more are running wild in the jungle. Can you handle the heat?
Abducted by a pair of hunky, tribal warriors, Carlie doesn’t think things can get any stranger until the first time she purrs.
Everyone’s heard of the mysterious Moon Ghost Jaguars, supposed shapeshifting men who steal women as their brides. What they forgot to mention was that half naked, ripped and oh so delicious, they always came as a pair – and turned into really big freakn’ cats! But Carlie’s not about to let these furry Tarzan’s dictate her future, even if they seem to have conquered her body.
Acat didn’t think he wanted a mate until he came across the outspoken American with golden hair. Making her his bride is only part of the battle. With the help of his best friend, Chaob, can he find a way to convince this strong willed woman to follow the traditions of his tribe? Or will this reluctant jungle bride get her lovers to accept the fact she’ll never be a classic barefoot and pregnant mate?
But I wish the book had focused more on just them. Instead we get an extra non-native involved about half way through that just really seemed to be a red herring - thrown in for the sole purpose of creating more conflict - unnecessary conflict. It almost seemed like it was there to add pages - which I really dislike.
But once we get that little hiccup resolved, it all becomes very fun again. These primitive men will surprise you at every turn and Carlie is just a very nice breathe of fresh air.
