Best friends should always stick together, but Penny and Jennifer are really taking that seriously! Jennifer moved to get away from her alpha brother and be there if her BFF needed her. Her career as a lawyer puts her in a dangerous situation and it is fate that puts Brett in front of a bullet meant for her. One whiff and the mating game begins.
Jennifer never let her standing in her pride decide who her friends were and I liked how she put her alpha brother (who appeared to be a sanctimonious douche) in his place every chance she got. Penny reciprocates as any concerned friend would, by siccing her mates brother on her endangered friend. These two generated plenty of hormone induced steam, as powered by their mate status. It was a little disconcerting how easily info got out about safe houses and such, but it kept the couple on the move in more ways than one and brought to light a traitor. Brett seemed laid back with a good sense of humor. He also appears to be a little more in control of his inner beast since he knows Jennifer is hi s mate early in the book and holds off claiming her for safety's sake.
Must be something about the leaders of the pack or their respective mates because I enjoyed this book as much as the first in the series. Looking forward to more.
Quick & Furry: Love, Laughs, and a Bit of Rawr on the Go.
Jennifer Palmer doesn’t have time for a mate. Yes, she’s a werelion whose beast is all about sexing up the hot beta, but she’s in the middle of prosecuting a high profile criminal case. Her primary responsibility is to see the bad guy ends up behind bars. Scratching her mating itch and screaming Brett’s name as she com—ahem. That isn’t anywhere on her list of to-dos. What she doesn’t realize is her werelion mate’s primary responsibility is ensuring her safety from the bad guy and… making her scream his name.
