Book Review

After the hilarity of book one in this series, with an alpha lion mating a rather scary werewolf and all the interspecies issues that followed, I was looking forward to this second story. It’s about the second male lion in Talan’s pride, Kevin, and the man he finds via Werekind Wanted, an online dating site for shifters. Kevin’s mate turns out to be a jaguar, and with two feisty catshifters trying to make a mating work, and knowing that would not be easy, I was rubbing my hands in glee before I even started reading.
Kevin is a relatively easygoing lion, most of the time. He has the kids he wanted, two perfect little boys, and while he does not love their mother, they get along well enough to raise their cubs in peace. Kevin is independently wealthy and invests some of his time in building houses for homeless shifter kids. But Kevin desperately wants to find his mate, and when he sees Payce's profile on a dating site of all places, he just knows - and he is ecstatic.

Payce, a solitary jaguar who doesn’t know what it’s like to have a family and can’t see himself mating, is attracted to Kevin when he receives an e-mail from the dating site he signed up with. But when they meet in person, and Kevin informs him they are mates, Payce is shocked. He has his life several hours away from where Kevin now wants him to live, he loves his job in construction laying tiles, and he isn’t at all sure sharing his life with a man who has children is for him. But then his truck explodes when he clicks the remote to open it, and everything changes.

If you like shifter stories with a touch of humor and entertaining characters, if you prefer them to be fairly “civilized” yet show their animal side when needed, and if you’re looking for a read that is funny, entertaining, and has just a touch of mystery, then you will probably like this novella.
