It’s all about the hair. I laughed so hard reading this book my son asked what was wrong with me. This is a new shifter series and it’s starting off with a bang. The main male character is Arik and he’s a lion shifter, and the alpha of his pride. Now we all know the male lion sits around and the lionesses do all the hunting, right? And the males have a big mane of hair. Well, the author ran with that and it was hysterical.
Arik goes looking for a trim for his fabulous (in his opinion) mane and instead of his usual barber is confronted with a woman hairstylist. The horror! The chemistry with Kira (the stylist in question) is immediate and fun and a little antagonistic. I adored Kira and found myself nodding my head more than once at her internal musings.
The story moved along fabulously with an interesting main story to keep me guessing and circumstances popping up that were equally sinister and amusing. The sex was of course frequent and mind-blowing and also had its moments of levity. On a side note, the hero’s name spelled backwards is the heroine’s name. I don’t know if that was accidental or on purpose but it struck me about half way through the book. Another snarky wonder by a creative author.
A lion’s pride isn’t defined only by those he commands but also resides with his hair, so when a human dares to butcher Arik’s mane, he gets his revenge—and claims her as his mate.
A billionaire CEO and leader of the largest East Coast pride, Arik is a ladies man and a lion. Used to commanding others, and obedience, he can’t believe it when a hairdresser with tempting curves chops off a hunk of his precious mane.
But her biggest mistake is in running from him.
Run as fast as you can, little mouse, because this cat loves to chase—and pounce.
Oh, and he also likes to nibble on tender bits. What he doesn’t expect is to fall for a human woman, a woman who can make the impossible happen because everyone knows lions can’t purr…until now.
