Once, he was Judd—Bengal Breed and brother to the notorious fugitive Gideon.
After Gideon disappeared, Judd was experimented on until his tortured body knew nothing but agony.

Now he is Cullen Maverick, serving as the commander of the Navajo Covert Law Enforcement Agency in the small community of Window Rock, Arizona. Despite his genetics, Cullen is able to pass as human because his Bengal traits are recessed. He lacks the ability to smell the emotions, bonds and fears that other Breeds take for granted. And he remains tormented that he wasn’t able to mate the woman he loved—at the cost of her life.

He’s no longer a Breed, merely a man. . . or so he thinks. But his tiger is about to be awakened by the one woman destined to be his—Chelsea Martinez. And their world will never be the same...

So Wake a Sleeping Tiger by Lora Leigh turned out to be an enjoyable read for me. It kept in line with the same MO as the past breed novels as far as the plot went which was okay because the strong emotions were there as well as the gut wrenching scenes. I’ve always found the premise of human genetically modified with animal DNA fascinating so my curiosity was peaked from the beginning to learn more about these characters as well as the Breeds world. The level of danger and action was high which I appreciated though the mystery was semi suspenseful and I figured out who doing all the mess way to quickly.

While the romance between the two was strong the challenge between them wasn’t as strong as I would have liked given what they were dealing with. The issues were addressed but not completely resolved to my satisfaction. I wanted to see more of how their relationship began and how they developed the friendship in the beginning not just being told about it. Even though I had some issues with the story I overall really liked it and am especially waiting to read more about the characters that were introduced at the end!
