About the book:

**Warning: This book is a wild, sexy beast of a read. 18+**

Putting a woman on her knees before me is what really makes my cock hard. I fuck with dominant force and absolute control. I demand complete surrender from my conquests.

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 to fuck her into 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.

My Thoughts:
Uncivilized was an intensely HOT read! Wow! If you love alpha males, Zach is definitely your man!

Moira is an anthropologist hired to accompany Zach out of the Amazonian jungle and ease his transition back into civilized society. She’s been sent by his godfather who’s been looking for Zach and his parents for eighteen years after they went missing.  After losing his parents, Zach was adopted by a local tribe in Caraica at the age of seven.  He’s all but forgotten his life in the States, and he has no desire to return. 

Zach is untamed, uncivilized and very much at home in his male dominated tribe, a fact that’s underscored almost immediately after Moira arrives in his village.  Let’s just say Moira probably looked like this: O_O over what she observed.  I think that was the look on my face as well! Zach is one uncivilized, dominant, gorgeous male, and he’s pissed off at her for yanking him out of his home. Moira definitely has her work cut out for her!

Zach fights Moira every step of the way.  He displays no interest leaning about life in the States, and he’s bitter about being here.  Just when Moira thinks she’ll never make any progress, Zach has a proposition for her: Teach him about sex in her world, all about it and he’ll agree learn more about his roots with an open mind.  Zach is all about one on one lessons, very hands on, and Moira struggles to keep things professional, because he’s her student and crossing that line would be wrong, right?  Zach is determined to get his way, though, and Moira really never stood a chance in denying him. 

“Get on your knees,” Zach commands me in a low voice, which rumbles along my skin and causes blood to rage through my veins.
“No,” I whisper, even though I want to scream, “Yes.”

Oh my stars, this story flipping HOT!! Incinerate-your-panties-hot!! Open-a-freezer-and-get-inside-hot!!! I do love me an alpha male and Zach was one of the ultimate ones.  I can’t say I blamed Moira in the least for giving in because it would next to impossible to say no to Zach’s commands and not submit.  He was crafty and determined! The sexual tension was thick and heavy from the moment you crack open the pages!

Giving in physically and spending time together leads to an emotional connection felt by both of them, something foreign to Zach. Back in his tribe sex was about the physical fulfillment without an emotional aspect, just an act.  The women are submissive barely looking the men in the eye, nothing like the feisty and independent Moira.  He got to know her beautiful mind, spirit and body, and fell for the whole package.  The fact that Moira wasn’t judgmental and didn’t devalue or hold one society’s way over another won Zach over even more.  She appreciated the differences and saw the beauty in both worlds and in him as a man.

Even though Zach came off as kind of a jerk first he was a good man which is why he had such struggles about where he belonged.  When memories of his life before Caraica start to surface he’s very torn.  He remembers being happy before his parents dragged him off to the jungle.

“I don’t know who I am anymore.”
“You are a boy who was taken from his home. You are a man who was taken from his life. They are both a part of who you are. But please don’t ever forget, my beautiful man…that you have the opportunity not to be whoever you want to be. That will always be solely in your control.”

Zach wanted to be there for his adoptive father and the tribe, but also didn’t want to leave or hurt Moira or his godfather. 

Sawyer Bennett wrote a FIERY hot romance that had me squirming in my seat at times! It was thrilling and intoxicating, but this story was more than just sex. Uncivilized was a touching romance and connection between two people that built gradually and was believable.
