Review: Turned by a Tiger

Turned by a Tiger (Eternal Mates #12)
Published July 1st 2017

On the verge of bleeding out and hunted by his merciless torturers, Talon has no choice but to seek sanctuary at Underworld, a nightclub run by a jaguar shifter liable to kill him on sight for being a tiger shifter male. What he finds in the old warehouse isn’t the grim shadow of Death though but an angel of mercy, one who offers him salvation and revenge—one who happens to be his fated mate.

Tending bar at Underworld is never dull when you’re a mortal surrounded by immortals, but when a gorgeous tiger shifter covered in blood stumbles into the club, and set’s fire to her boss’s temper, Sherry’s entire world is in danger of being turned on its head. Something about the mysterious warrior has her stepping in to save him, something that ignites her heart and stirs her soul, and no matter how fiercely she fights it, she can’t hold herself back.

When Talon reveals the name of his captors, and his plan to head back in to save his friends, will Sherry be brave enough to embrace the feelings he stirs in her and step deeper into the world of immortals? And will Talon be strong enough to resist the lure of Sherry to protect his family’s secret or will he risk everything to claim his eternal mate?

I've miss this world so much! And after meeting Sherry, I realised how much I missed the humans of this world. You know, the week and fierce humans that deal with the creatures who can break them in half in the blink of an eye? 
Turned by a Tiger brought all those elements back along with some very loved characters from previous books. 
As always, while this is part of a series, you can read it as a stand alone, but is much better if you have read the previous ones, at least some of them. 

Talon is looking for help, running from Archangel organization and into the last place he should go, but Underworld - the night club for all creatures - is his last hope. He was expecting some resistance from the owner but he wasn't expecting her.

Sherry has work in Underworld for years, has known the truth about the partygoers and the owner as well, but a lot about the nature of them is still a mistery. When she sees Talon stumbling into Underworld and asking for help she can't resist going to his assistance, even when her boss, Kyter, tells her no. 

I loved seeing how independant Sherry is, how she represents humanity to it's best with the fierce need to stand up and protect those she cares about. Even when she knows she's the weakest person in the room. Watching her overcome her fears and need to be helpful was one of the things I loved the most.

Her relationship with Kyter adds a nice touch to the book. Whith the stories being about finding their soulmates, it's great to see friendships develop as well. Kyter is as overprotective with Sherry as he is with his mate and he's afraid of what Talon might do to her. 

Talon is an incredible character. With his mind set on setting free the rest of Archangel prisioners and his heart set on giving Sherry the choice to be with him, you fall in love with him from the start. 

Sherry and Talon have an instant connection they try to stop. The need to comfort and protect the other present at all times and the way Talon holds back his basic insticts makes you swoon a little. Sherry's personality shines a fun light to the book and contrast Talon's grim tone, making them fit perfectly.

Felicity Heaton adds a bit more to the overall story with this book, taking us back for a glioms at Archangel and their plans and how that affects the rest of the world. The world building keeps hiving you insights i to this. Eautiful place the author has created in the heart of London and all the creatures.
