Review: Primal (Wrong Side of the Tracks) by K.A Merikan

Get ready to fall in love with a modern day Tarzan in K.A Merikan's Primal

From the blurb:

“What I find in my territory is mine to keep. Even if it’s a man.”

Jag. Uninhibited. Possessive. Walks on the wild side.
Dane. Gentle giant. Monster lover. Plays it safe.

Dane always knew his illicit fantasies of rough sex and dangerous men would one day lead him down a path of no return, but no matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t stay away.

After being beaten half to death by his ex, he wakes up in a collar, chained to a wall by a wild man who claims Dane as his property.

From the moment Jag lays his eyes on Dane, he knows he wants to keep him. Big, strong, with colorful ink all over, he is the most unique man Jag had ever seen. But Dane has to be tamed if he is to become Jag’s mate for life.

All Jag needs to do is assure Dane that he will be protected and provided for, because the sparks are already flying. But Dane keeps nagging about irrelevant things like his family, responsibilities, and the Internet. No wonder Jag needs to keep him chained for longer than he expected.

The only way out for Dane is to play the role of Jag’s obedient, loving ‘mate’, and bide his time until he can escape. But while Jag is absolutely batshit, and his junkyard den lifestyle is insanity, he also showers Dane with treats, worships the ground he walks on, and f*cks him like a monster, the way Dane always dreamed of in his most secret fantasies.

Jacquie's Review:

I didn't expect to fall in love with Jag, but here I am ready to defend his slightest action.
Dane ends up as Jag's prisoner/mate when he is left for dead at the junkyard.

I loved the primal nature of Jag, the mating and hunting thing. The way he had during ideas (not necessarily correct ones) about gender roles.

Dane I adored because he was so open. He made a few bad decisions but he really cared about Jag.
It wasn't as dark as I was expecting but that could be because of Jag. He was sweeter than I'd expected. No wonder Dane gave up his regular life for him.
