Book Description

April 5 2011 Breeds (Book 10)


The breed guaranteed Mica no harm would come to her, but they never allowed for her sensual fascination with Navarro, or his unstoppable need to claim her as his mate, in both body and soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars breeds series Feb. 14 2013
By Karlita
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I like all the books in this series, even the bad ones. They all entertain me. I like the premise and most of the characters, a few irritate me, but for the most part this series is good for a romp. If you are too serious or expect a realistic storyline than this series is not for you. Oh, and of course there is alot of very desriptive sex scenes, so if you get offended by this definitely do not read this series or any of Lora Leigh's books.

I might have enjoyed this book if it weren't for the ending. But that wasn't the only problem in this book. First though, the plot and what I liked:

Navarro is a breed with recessed genetics. Like the last few books, this creates anomalies in the mating heat. There is also Navarro's training around suppressing his emotions. These things combine to make it difficult to accept his animal wanting a mate.

Mica has spent many years around the breeds and Cassie is her best friend. In order to protect some semblance of privacy, Mica has learned to control her body's responses and hide her emotions.

At the beginning, Navarro rescues Mica from an attempted kidnapping. This places them in close contact and rekindles the desire that has been simmering between them for ten years. Navarro manages to infect Mica with the mating heat, but doesn't really seem to suffer it himself.

I liked that this book didn't rely on mortal peril to force the hero to realize his feelings. I liked that they were not being manipulated by outside forces. This was just two people coming to grips with their feelings for each other.

SPOILERS: I didn't like that they never discuss his reluctance and how he comes to love her. Mica is left in the dark as to his inner thoughts and secrets. I didn't like that the resolution at the end was so imcomplete. Who was the spy, where is Ely, how did the villian escape. I also didn't like the complete lack of affection between the H & H. Even at the end we are deprived of seeing any tenderness between them, lust yes aplenty, but tenderness is completely missing.

Worst of all, however, was the missing pages that others have mentioned. It was like the ending was left as a barely expanded outline.

3.0 out of 5 stars Confused May 26 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love the Breed books, but I am finding that they are getting less well written...alot of typing errors and it feels like paragraphs or even pages are missing. I got completely lost at the end, couple ended up in a room with a bed suddenly, after reading a line that said he pushed up against the wall. The story was good but a bit confusing, the "bad guy" just "shows up" out of nowhere, with no explanation as to how he got out or anything and that was strange. I love Lora Leigh's writting and hope the editing of these books gets better. The last few Breed books have felt "rushed through" by whoever is supposed to catch mistakes and lost parts. If you are a Breed follower than you will need this book to stay caught up with the series but it could have been better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I was hoping for April 16 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Navarro's Promise focuses on Mica and Navarro's. Mica is a significant character in that she is best friends with Cassie. Navarro is a character that I don't remember much back story on so he was new to me. The recessed genetics storyline was interesting but the suspense plot line in this installment left a little to be desired. I also found I had some issues with figuring out how people got from one place to another without it being indicated in the story which confused me and reduced my overall enjoyment of the book. There was greater focus on the relationship between Navarro and Mica which had its good and bad points. We get to see a little more of the anomalies of mating heat, somewhat similar to Mercury's war, but the passion is not as compelling and the dialog felt repetitive. Saying the same thing lots of different ways. We do get to see Cassie in this installment but there is no real movement in her mating storyline - which I am dying to read. If you are a breed fan you will want to pick up Navarro's promise but it is not on par with some of the best of the series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Missing pages! April 9 2011
By Elizabeth H. Robson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
After Mica is lured into the exam room and there's a confrontation with Bradenmore, who is behind a glass partition. Jonas, Navarro and Callan arrive to let her out of the locked exam room. Mica storms down the hall now that the exam room door has been unlocked. Navarro chases after her, kisses her against the wall and then tells her he loves her as they are cuddling in bed in the "afterglow". There is no mention of a) how they got from kissing in a hallway to being in a bed; b) where this bed is located; and c) what transpired to get them to the "afterglow" portion of the program. I had about 5 minutes of WTF as I kept going back and forth in my Kindle trying to figure out if it was glitching. Then I read several other reviews with the same complaint. So it was either the WORST editing job ever, or somehow pages got lost when the documen got converted to Kindle format. Either way, it sucks and pretty much made me get my hate on for this book. And I have been a Breeds devotee for years, so this is especially depressing. I want my money back or a free copy of the corrected book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Navarro's let down April 6 2011
By Kandis Barrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The first 19 pages of the book, which happens to be the prologue was centered mostly around cassie (which btw I will be glad when LL writes her story). There were some typos and some grammatical errors. In chapter 17, pg. 299, Navarro presses Mica back into a steel wall (mind you she was walking down a hallway to get to the elevator; however no mention if she or Navarro enters into the elevator. Then less than a half page later, N&M have finished their lovemaking (in her bed, and how they got there I don't know -- not unless when you turn the page you hit an unforseen fast forward button! -- plus, they are professing their love to each other. The big bag Brandenmore chooses this time to enter Mica's bedroom, with no one ever knowing there was a secret panel in the wall for this fool to frolic through! Ms. Leigh what happened?

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, Bad, Ugly May 6 2011
By Patti Colt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dear Berkley: I believe you are making a ton of money off Lora Leigh's work. Please spend a bit of that profit hiring a better proofing editor. Print and kindle versions are missing at least 2-3 pages of her storyline on page 300 destroying any hope of pulling off a credible climax to the book. Lora Leigh's books are worthy of better. When I read them, I immerse myself in the Breed world and any mistake on your part pulls me from the story (bad bad), had me rereading to see if I missed something (no), and then having to use my own imagination to fill in the blanks (irritating). Hence, see one disappointed customer that is ticked she paid 8 bucks for a book that's ratings are being destroyed by your error. Do better next time. Sincerely, disgruntled customer

Dear Lora Leigh: I love your Breed world. You have a fan for life for this series. Good, bad, ugly - I buy these books. Word of advice: Please take a moment to edit and track your storyline. My first complaint: Mica and Navarro do not talk to each other to resolve any major emotional difficulty. You did an excellent job of putting their emotions out there and letting them bleed, but you didn't have them talk to each other for a resolution that would allow them a deep, intimate emotional connection. Throughout the story they bicker and have irrelevant dialogue. Characters must change and Navarro does, but he never confides in Mica. Instead, they had fabulous sex multiple times (my compliments on that) and Mica settles for "I Love You" and we're done. No, we are not. To top that off, you allow Cassie to hijack the story at the end instead of allowing your characters to perform the central action, then add a useless epilogue that did nothing to resolve these problems. Further, I never got the urgency or the plot behind why the bad guys wanted Mica so bad. As a hostage for trade, that didn't work so well. Also, I suspect something was intended to threaten Cassie, but that information didn't come across. Those reasons needed to be layered better to pull off the utter threat and urgency of the first twenty pages of the book. I waited and waited to see that and didn't. Also, I'm so sorry to say this - the Brandemire plot with all of Sanctuary's spies made the Breeds look weak and incompetent and it was annoying as heck. Frankly, I gave a sigh of relieve that he died and you'll move on to something else in the next book. That said, my compliments on the physical relationship between Navarro and Mica - well written as always. Sincerely, your loyal fan

Note to readers: Of all the problems, the Berkley issue with the copy edits was the MOST annoying, so be prepared when you pick up this book. There's great sex, lots of action, a huge mistake and no real emotional resolution.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read but missing a part April 6 2011
By szelek - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another good addition to the breed's stories. Other reviewers have gone into great detail so I won't but I too found the end to be missing a section. When reading the end I had to stop and reread it three times because, as the previous reviewer stated, one minute they were by the elevator and the next they were in bed with no break in the story or an explanation as to how they moved there. Also, when Mica was in the lab Jonas and several other enforcers were there and Mica had explained she was called down for her check-up. It is explained that the villain somehow has managed to arrange this from his cell in the lab. If Jonas is aware of this where does this lead? There is no explanation or follow up on this part of the story. Is there a whole chunk of story missing? Who helped the villain? How did he manage to escape from his cell seemingly minutes after Jonas and everyone came rushing down to the labs and his cell? I am going to see if I can get my hand on a printed copy to see if this is an electronic version error or if the printed book also has this issue.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT ONE OF HER BEST ! April 7 2011
By Cissy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Unfortunately I will have to say that Navarro's Promise is one of Leigh's weakest books in the Breed series. As mentioned by multiple reviewers, there is an entire section missing at the end. Amazon should immediately get a correction to upload on Kindle. The story makes no sense and Leigh seems to just randomly add new characters for possible future books. Time for this series to end so let us find a mate for Cassie and be done! I was also disappointed with Jonah,s story. He deserved a better storyline and mate. The author seems like she is just churning these out now and is no longer invested in the storyline. Sorry but this just my observation. It is really a shame as the theme was really fun and enjoyable read about three books ago.
