Story Overview:
Samuel Delaney’s had a rough couple of months. Not only did he find out his mom works for the government in a job she stubbornly refuses to speak about, now he’s helping his alpha deal with a sudden influx of wolves after their alpha mated with one of the cats from his pride.

Most importantly, the leopardess he’s been half in love with his entire adult life is actively looking for a mate.

And Sam isn’t even a footnote on her list of potentials.

Convincing the lovely Luna North to give him a chance would be a hell of a lot easier if he didn’t get tongue tied whenever she was around. He’ll have to rely on his cat’s instinctive ability to land on its feet if he hopes to make any headway with the stubborn beauty.

Because when a lion chooses his mate, he doesn’t back down.


My Review:
This is one of those series...I'm loving it so much. Both of these characters were in the last book (although both books work beautifully as stand-alones), so we've had an introduction to them.

Luna and Sam have been acquaintances for years. She's never really paid him much mind. He was always just kind of there...and maybe a little bit awkward. He's known that she's his mate for years, but Sam is awkward. He's a mix of powerful, sexy shifter that never wanted to scare Luna off, but he's so overwhelmed by not wanting to do the wrong thing, he's always more stumbled his way through. As a result, Luna just thinks he's a dumb jock. And she's a pretty powerful personality so she just kind of rolls over him. 

That all changes in this book when one of Sam's friends mentions to him that Luna is getting serious about finding a mate. She's his. That is NOT going to happen...and suddenly Sam becomes his true self...alpha, bossy, protective, and dang sexy. I loved watching his transformation and Luna's shocked reaction to it. How did she overlook this really sexy cat for so many years? It made for a seriously fun and sexy book. While this one wasn't quite as sexy as the first, I still really, really enjoyed the uptick in the story line.

In fact, this whole series has been really fun. I can't wait for more to come!! I really like these cat shifters!! When they find their mate, the uncontrolled moments are really, really sexy.
