The Mountain Lion’s Secretary by Lila Jean #Review
Posted by brriske
Mara Warren is desperate. With no job, a room in her parents’ basement, and a mountain of debt right out of college, she takes the first job she can find: as secretary for the elusive billionaire, Zane Bradley. But her new boss is so much more than she bargained for. With his solid body, sexy-as-hell handguns, and the delicious stubble on his jaw, he’s too good to be true. He says he wants her, but Mara has been hurt before. With her already shattered heart on the line, Mara battles between protecting what little self-esteem she has left and letting herself fall head-first into the arms of the most dangerous man in town.
A rugged mountain lion shifter with a knack for sensing danger, Zane Bradley uses the company name as a decoy to hide his inner animal—and to preserve the privacy his animal demands. As if keeping his company running and his shifter employees in line isn’t enough, Zane’s lion is desperately craving a mate… and it wants Mara Warren. But both Zane’s new mate and his billion-dollar empire is threatened when he catches the scent of the werewolf that killed his brother. The murderer has come back to take out the last surviving Bradley brother, and Mara has no idea she just walked right into the line of fire.
CONTENT WARNING: This is a stand-alone mountain lion shifter romance. It contains smoking hot shifters, lip-bitingly delicious love scenes, naughty language, and a dash of violence to spice things up. Intended for mature audiences.
This novel has an HEA, with NO cliffhanger.
This short length book was very quick paced and full of action. The romance seemed very forced at the beginning instead of steadily flowing as I felt this would have added to the story some more. Zane has to overcome his personal demons in this book in order to be happy and you can really resonate with this meaning. Based on content I recommend this book for an 18+ audience. I am an independent reviewer for Romance Authors That Rock and am giving this book 4 hearts.
