breaks loose and Leo is able to run away and lands in the arms of Maddox, a lion shifter who is also one of Solomon s Pride Maddox s lion recognizes Leo as his mate and he will do anything to keep Leo safe.This seems to be a new series that will be developed by Ms Hawkes For the first book, it definitely has the charm I think the world build around the Pride lead by Solomon who seems to be in war with the vampires lead by Mika and his evil friends Leo is an adorable character Even if he is suffering from his life as blood slave, I don t feel any despair from him On the contrary, I feel his strength and determination to survive, even the cruelest form of torture When he meets Maddox, I can t help to feel happy for him He deserves his happiness Maddox is the common type of possessive Alpha, ONLY, he doesn t come as annoying for me grin He has the right amount of possessiveness There is something cute when Maddox is in heat yes, apparently, for shifters, it s not just females who are in heat lol The relationship between Leo and Maddox is filled with love and respect and well, chemistry.The rest of the Pride is also fun to read There s Solomon the leader, then Liam Maddox s twin, Jace the Pride s doctor, Kett Maddox and Liam s youngest brother, and Damian the sole vampire in the Pride now I want to know his story I cannot wait to read the sequel, since there is a sort of

Trouble is, Leo s vamp owner master wants him back.Technically, this one had a lot of problems There were pretty significant editing misses Rather large plot story telling holes which could have been explained but never where at least not to my satisfaction and the craft, IMO, neededwork by this I mean the POV switching sometimes almost paragraph to paragraph was so excessive as to truly distract and detract from the tale What saves this piece is that the characters and story are genuinely interesting I would recommend reading a couple of good length extractsif you can handle the writing, can overlook some poor editing, don t mind cliffhanger endings for significant secondary characters with no definite second book release date in sight and don t over analyse stories plots too much this is a read I could recommend The books started really well There was a plot There was action The story was definitely going somewhere After Leo s escape, however, everything stalled Including editing I had hard time following the story because instead of being consumed by the progress of a new relationship, I was consumed by untangling one twisted sentence after another, figuring out who did what to whom and why Leo transformed into a precious bundle and a lion s lapdog, the plot turned into PWP and I completely lo The books started really well There was a plot There was action The story was

into PWP and I completely lost interest in the book Very disappointed Great start to a new series My only question is How soon till the next one Need to read about Jace lol This was a good book I liked how it started off with being able to see what Leo has gone through during his stay with vampires How his life has been so horrible since he was kidnapped by them We get some background information on Leo Like who his old master was and what happened to him, who his new master is and some of his new master s friends It was entertaining to read about especially for someone who likes reading about such cruelties I really liked Leo He s a broken man view spo This was a good book I liked how it started off with being able to see what Leo has gone through during his stay with

of his new master s friends It was entertaining to read about especially for someone who likes reading about such cruelties I really liked Leo He s a broken man view spoiler and a forced drug addict since the vampires kept shooting him up with drugs hide spoiler but even with how much he s been through, he automatically feels safe when he s in his mate s, Maddox, arms Maddox is, of course, one of those big, burly guys who is intimidating and possessive hot When it comes to Leo, though, he s all gentle fingers and caressing hands, which is adorable, view spoiler especially when he starts to purr for Leo P hide spoiler but, if you make a threatening move towards his mate, he s quick to attack I liked the plot It was interesting to follow how Leo gets away from the vampires and how he falls into Maddox s lap Literally The interesting details about the pride and what happens to a cat when they get mated kept me reading, and had me laughing a few times The secondary characters were pretty funny in regards to Maddox s primal side and I liked how we got little tidbits on each of those secondary characters As much as I liked the story, though, there was some major head hopping going on At times I thought Leo was speaking when it was really Maddox that was I didn t notice it at first but it getsprominent asandcharacters come into the story I was also left with some questions view spoiler If the pride knew the vampires were stealing shifters, why did they wait so long to actually make a move I mean, they waited until one of their own was kidnapped before they did anything Also, I was under the impression that Link was only dealing with the vampires through drugs So, if that were true then how was Jase held hostage and Liam beaten up Did Link rat the two out or were the vampires there when it happened And if the vampires were there when it happened, how did the vampires know that Jase and Liam weren t there to have a drink Also, with how much drugs Leo was injected with, shouldn t he be a recovering addict Recovering addicts aren t able to function properly when they re going through withdrawals and Leo seemed perfectly fine after the last drug wore off Which seemed kind of inconsistent with how much Leo claimed he was given drugs hide spoiler Warning Blood of a Leo ends on a cliff hanger Like a major cliff hanger, at least to me it seemed major view spoiler I think this because the supposed resolution is not resolved Jase was kidnapped, the pride went to get him back All hell broke lose and Jase is still with the vampires hide spoiler Overall, a good story I m looking forward to the next in the series which I hope comes out soon but if you can t stand cliff hangers, wait until the next in the series is released Okay, I loved this one I want my own cat shifter nowI about fell out of my chair at this statement how much he understood about his mate s other half the disturbing thing though, was that he d learnt it all from the nature channel I laughed until I had tears streaming down my face I dunno, struck me funny I knowthere is a sequal in the works Can t wait till it gets here.
