Savage man, loner, warrior… I am dangerous at my core. I have lived amidst the untamed wild of the rainforest, in a society that reveres me and where every woman falls before me in subjugation.
Now I’ve been discovered. Forced to return to a world that I have forgotten about and to a culture that is only vaguely familiar to my senses.
Dr. Moira Reed is an anthropologist who has been hired to help me transition back into modern society. It’s her job to smooth away my rough edges… to teach me how to navigate properly through this new life of mine. She wants to tame me.
She’ll never win.
I am wild, free and raw, and the only thing I want from the beautiful Moira Reed is her submission.
She wants it, I am certain.
I will give it to her soon.
Yes, very soon, I will become the teacher and she will become my student. And when I am finished showing her body pleasure like no other, she’ll know what it feels like to be claimed by an uncivilized man.
“In polite circles, Zach, a gentleman should pull out a chair for a lady.”
“I’ve lived in a savage world for a long time. I don’t belong in polite circles.”
WOW! I honestly don’t know where to start with this review. I’ve got so many thoughts and feelings running through my head that I’m having a hard time putting them all together in written words. Ok, here goes.
Orphaned in the Amazon at eight years of age, Zach has spent the past eighteen years as a member of the Caraican Indian tribe. When word gets back to his Godfather that he is in fact alive and didn’t die with his parents all those years ago, he organises to have Zach returned to America. Zach has no desire to leave his tribe, but at the plea of his tribal father, he reluctantly returns “home” with Moira, the anthropologist hired to bring him back and to acclimate him to modern society. Zach is intent on leaving and is counting down the days until he can return to his tribe. But when he arrives in America and starts remembering things from his childhood and starts developing feelings for Moira, it’s not long before he’s torn between two worlds.
“I don’t like this feeling I have. I don’t like watching him put his hands on you.”
“It’s something, Moira. I’ve watched many of my tribe mates fuck Tukaba in the dirt not five feet from me. It never bothered me to share her. But this bothers me.”
What can I say about Moira? To be honest, not a lot because Zach truly steals the show in this story. She willingly submits to Zach but she’s not afraid to stand up to him either. She’s smart, patient, determined and independent, but more importantly, she knows when to back off and give Zach the time he needs to adjust. She’s a very nice and likeable woman, but compared to Zach, she just doesn’t stand out.
I loved this book and the emotions it brought out of me. You’ll feel angry when people treat Zach as less. You’ll feel sad as he struggles with his emotions, desires and loyalties. You’ll laugh when he discovers porn. That scene was hilarious and just in case you were wondering, this book has a lot of sex in it. A LOT and it is hot as fuck! What I really liked is that despite being a dominant in his tribe (and without a doubt Zach is the most alpha male character I’ve read in a long time), he’s rather sexually inexperienced in America. When he discovers porn, it’s like a sexual awakening and his eyes were opened to all the sexual possibilities. All I can say is Moira is one lucky lady.
UNCIVILIZED is told in dual POVs that include both past and present tense. It ends in a HEA, but it is not the end of their story. LOVE: UNCIVILIZED is a followup novella that takes place eight or so years later and I’m looking forward to seeing what this uncivilized man and his lucky lady have been up to.
