Book Review of --
A Very Jaguar Christmas (Heart of the Jaguar Book 5) by Terry Spear
Overall star rating --- 5
About the book:
There are all kinds of surprises under the mistletoe!
As a protector of all jaguar-kind, Guardian agent Demetria MacFarlane isn't surprised to get a call near Christmas-but when she's sent to protect a cub whose species she didn't even know existed, her holiday season gets complicated. And it doesn't help that her partner is a distraction of the hottest kind.
Hotshot JAG agent Everett Anderson can handle dangerous poachers and wildlife traffickers, no problem...but kids? Everett fears he'll be stuck cub-sitting under the Christmas tree, but working with one sexy Guardian she-cat may be the best present he's ever gotten.

The review --
I loved it. It was very Christmassy and a very good story. Good characters, great writing. Yes, it had sex scenes, but there weren't a lot of them, they were very well written, and didn't dominate the story.
This was a wonderful book to start off my Christmas reviews with. As you can see above, I've added a new rating to my Christmas book reviews, The Christmas Quotient, which rates how Christmassy. Not only did this book get 5 stars (I would have given it 6 if I could), but it got 7 Christmas trees too.
This was a very fun Christmas paranormal romance to read. It had all the bells and whistles that you could want. It does start off with a sad moment in the prologue of the book, but it quickly moves away from that; but that will be a key part of the plot of the book.
It's a great paranormal romance Christmas read for fans of this genre.
