Must Love Lions by Alma Black #Review
Posted by brriske
When Max challenges Alexis to give him a chance, she can’t say no. A human like her has no business with this handsome alpha lion, but she can’t resist his magnetism. Their chemistry is primal, their connection positively animalistic. After all, once you go shifter, you never go back.
But when a rogue shifter group against interspecies dating targets Alexis, Max will stop at nothing to protect her. It’s more than his pride on the line; it’s his mate.
Warning: Must Love Lions is a paranormal shape-shifter romance. If sassy, sexy, and carnal reads aren’t your thing, this book isn’t for you. It contains lots of hot sex, a bit of violence, and a lot of witty banter.
Must Love Lions is an interesting take on a very popular shiftergenre. Typically I have found shifter stories to view humans in one of two ways; either humans are completely oblivious to shifters or they know about them and shifters kinda adore human women. This story is unique to me because it’s a shifters vs. humans stand point. They hate each other and it’s very clear they should not dateor love one another. That is until Max decides to create an app, against his pride’s wishes, that tries to pair shifters and humans or at least have a blind eye as to race in matching for dates. Sadly not everyone in either the shifter or human world agree that species should mingle. Max invites reporter Alexis to write an article about the new app and ends up convincing her to give dating a shifter a try, in dating him. I found this story to be a quick read and interesting from the beginning. The author is very descriptive and the main characters relatable. It seems as though this is the first in an upcoming series as there is supporting characters that possibly could have there own stories. With those positives being said, I’m rating this story only 4 hearts, because I’m just not sure if I’m hooked enough to go looking for the next ones. I also found most of the supporting characters pretty negative and the adversarial stances between humans and shifters off putting.
