Stalking is only a crime among humans. In a lioness’s world, it’s called dating.
Jeoff, is a bit of a killjoy, a super cute one who gets furry on full moons.
But so does she.
Luna is everything Jeoff is not. Outrageous, outgoing, and violent. Very violent, and unafraid to go after what she wants—and she wants Jeoff.
Silly man, he thinks he can resist, but once a lioness sets her sights on a man, paws off! And if anyone thinks to try and take him… There’s a reason why the ladies of the pride win the yearly award for Baddest Biatches.
Fear the claw. *Snarl*.
Every time I read one of this series I start off with a giggle that becomes a full blown, hurts the stomach, laugh. I absolutely love the lionesses and Luna is one of the snarkiest and most fun. This one starts off in full swing for Luna, she has to work with the Alpha Wolf Jeoff and she wants him in other ways too. Unfortunately for her Jeoff has sworn off any and all lionesses, but will work with her to help find the missing pride and pack members. This is a favorite scene right at the beginning of the book.
This is the life. Luna didn’t care what anybody said. Nothing could compare to the enjoyment of sunbathing in a warm patch of sunlight while the chill of fall gripped the city outside.
She stretched on the fabric-covered pile of cushions, extending all of her limbs, practically purring in delight as the rays of brilliant sunshine streamed through the large plate-glass window of the condo.
“What the fuck are you doing?” The shocked male voice didn’t startle her. Noisy wolf. She’d heard him coming for a while. He really needed to work on his stealth technique.
Exhibiting a laziness that usually only a male lion could achieve, Luna opened an eye and peered at the man standing, arms folded over his chest, across the room. He glared— how cute. “Hi, Jeoff.”
“Don’t you hi Jeoff me. What the hell are you doing in my apartment? Naked.”
He’d noticed. Point. “I’m naked because it turns out you have a delightful afternoon spot, right about here.” She indulged in a long stretch atop the cushions that she’d yanked off his couch and upon which she lay with her arms and legs extended. The pose pulled her tanned skin taut. Tanned with no lines, she should add. She’d recently gotten some time on a beach for a job in the south. It was a shifter-friendly locale and clothing optional.
“You do realize that the folks in the building across from here can see straight in.”
How positively titillating. “Are they watching, do you think?” Luna rolled to her stomach and peered out the floor-to-ceiling glass window. She waved, but with the sun streaming in, couldn’t tell if anyone watched and waved back.
A heavy sigh let her know Jeoff still stood behind her. As if she could miss his presence. Jeoff wasn’t the kind of guy a girl could ignore. And not just because he reeked of dog. Dog as in a wolf shifter, not a true canine, although the two species did smell remarkably alike.
But she could forgive his furry fault because he was the standoffish hottie everyone wanted to bang. Like seriously, anyone with a pulse wanted to strip and ride Jeoff cowgirl style. He had only himself to blame. Tall, much taller than her, Jeoff had broad shoulders but a lean build, an athletic build with defined muscle. He wasn’t like the lions in her pride, all beefed up and impressed with himself. While a touch nerdy with his glasses and three-piece suit— the glasses a bit of a superhero accessory to his public persona— Jeoff was all man. And an uptight prude.
“If your naked ass ends up on the Internet, don’t come yowling to me.”

Then they get down to the reasons she was in his apartment. I’m kind of with Jeoff on this one, she could have called or waited until he was home, but hey much more fun this way.
As they begin their search one thing stands out. There is no scent of an outsider. A new club in town. No one knows the owner. Leads to an investigation that changes everything. I wasn’t expecting what they found, really surprised me.
I loved this book from beginning to end. I laughed held my breath and I may have sniffled a time or two.
