“We are back in the Shifters world.  And it’s so good!!!” ~ Under the Covers

We are back in the Shifters world.  And it’s so good!!!  After the Shifters series ended I was satisfied but I wanted more.  I’m so happy the author has decided to revisit it.

The romance in LION’S SHARE takes a center focus when young Abby all of a sudden is not so young anymore.  After knowing her since she was just a kid, and seeing the trauma she’s been through, Jace sees her for the woman she’s now become.  And he wants to take a bite.

The politics of the Prides and the council are back in full swing when a series of “cat” attacks leaves a string of dead humans behind.  Jace, newest and youngest Alpha, and his enforcers are assigned to investigate and track down the possible stray responsible.

Sparks sizzle between Jace and Abby throughout this whole book.  For me, loving Jace since the Shifters, I was beyond the moon with his characters getting an HEA.  And this was a great story for him!  I loved him with Abby.  She’s challenging to him enough.  And has always had an attraction to him.

And while Jace was perfect, I had some minor issues with Abby.  Her rebellious attitude and her thought process during this  book was getting annoying because she should’ve known there were other options for her.

But don’t think this book is strictly for readers of the Shifters series.  I do recommend having the backstory and reading this in order, as the spinoff it’s meant to be.  But if you want to be stubborn and just pick this up, then I think other that missing some info you can manage to understand this story.  And being that the focus is more on the romance, you’ll be just fine!

I see plenty of stories that I’m more than excited about reading!

Favorite Quotes:

“What’s wrong?”  Your hot chocolate doesn’t have enough whiskey?”
“The world doesn’t have enough whiskey.”

“What happened to the rest of your skirt”
“I left it in the nineteenth century.”

“You’ve gone over to the dark side.”
“Join me.  I hear we have cookies.”

“I  was starving for a taste of her, and a starving man can’t think straight.”

About Rachel Vincent

Rachel Vincent is a former English teacher and an eager champion of the Oxford comma. She shares her home in Oklahoma with two cats, two teenagers, and her husband, who’s been her # 1 fan from the start. Rachel is older than she looks and younger than she feels, and she remains convinced that writing about the things that scare her is the cheapest form of therapy—but social media is a close second.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

Not completely lost. There is background you won’t know but I think you can figure it out on the go, there’s enough hints as to what’s happened that I think you can give this one a go.

I think you’ll like this new take. It’s more romance than the UF of Shifters but the world stays the same!
