Billionaire Security Shifters Now in Print!

Seeing a reviews of shifter romances on the blog may have come as a surprise to some of my readers this summer. Honestly, I didn’t know I was going to dive into the genre and to continue to enjoy what I found.

As you may remember, my first journey into the genre was by reading Lila Jean’s debut The Mountain Lion’s Secretary. Soon after that I read her second book The Grizzly Bear’s Heiress. These two books are in her Billionaire Security Shifter series.

While we are awaiting the release of book three (I’ll let you know if I hear any news about a release date), I have a little surprise for those who love this series like I do:

You can now buy books 1 and 2 in print!

That’s right. You can order both of these books in print to put on your shelves, alongside your other favorite books. Kindles can’t contain these animals any longer!

You can find links to the ebook and print editions below, along with more information about each book and the author.

And in case you missed them and want to know my opinion of the books, here are my reviews:

The Mountain Lion's Secretary

b3459-goodreads-badge-add-plus-2d25bb0f32eeac8660c13a521cf00c8e

For the shifters at Grizzly Bodyguards & Security, every day is life and death.

Mara Warren is desperate. With no job, a room in her parents’ basement, and a mountain of debt right out of college, she takes the first job she can find: as secretary for the elusive billionaire, Zane Bradley. But her new boss is so much more than she bargained for. With his solid body, sexy-as-hell handguns, and the delicious stubble on his jaw, he’s too good to be true. He says he wants her, but Mara has been hurt before. With her already shattered heart on the line, Mara battles between protecting what little self-esteem she has left and letting herself fall head-first into the arms of the most dangerous man in town.

A rugged mountain lion shifter with a knack for sensing danger, Zane Bradley uses the company name as a decoy to hide his inner animal—and to preserve the privacy his animal demands. As if keeping his company running and his shifter employees in line isn’t enough, Zane’s lion is desperately craving a mate… and it wants Mara Warren. But Zane’s billion-dollar empire is threatened when he catches the scent of the werewolf that killed his brother. The murderer has come back to take out the last surviving Bradley brother, and Mara has no idea she just walked right into the line of fire.

CONTENT WARNING: This is a stand-alone mountain lion shifter romance. It contains smoking hot shifters, lip-bitingly delicious love scenes, naughty language, and a dash of violence to spice things up. Intended for mature audiences.

This is novel has a HEA with NO cliffhanger.

The Grizzly Bear's Heiress

b3459-goodreads-badge-add-plus-2d25bb0f32eeac8660c13a521cf00c8e

For the shifters working at Grizzly Bodyguards & Security, every day is life and death.

Good girls don’t date shifters. That’s what Isabelle Hart’s billionaire father says, anyway. But after an attempted kidnapping nearly lands her ransomed in the back of a van, her father is breaking all his own rules to keep her safe. Now a muscled bear shifter is watching over her until the issue is resolved, and she can’t keep her eyes off of him. With her life on the line and no end in sight, Isabelle’s tempted to break whatever rule comes between her and Ryker Edwards… even if it means her father following through on his threat to disown her.

Ever since his best friend Zane Bradley saved his life ten years ago, Ryker Edwards has used his skills as a grizzly bear shifter to complete nearly six hundred missions and protect the wealthy elite keeping Zane’s company afloat. But when Zane calls him in on his day off, Ryker is floored to discover he’s been assigned a new mission: protect a curvy heiress from armed kidnappers. Right then and there, his bear chooses her as its mate. There’s only one problem: she’s off limits. As Ryker fends off attack after attack, Isabelle’s kidnappers get desperate. They call in help from a dangerous source that wants Zane and his entire clan buried six feet under. When the kidnapper’s identity is revealed, Ryker realizes his devotion for Isabelle may have made her nothing but bait in a sinister war between shifters.

#Review: The Werewolf Proposal, by @AuthorMFox

The Werewolf ProposalTitle: The Werewolf Proposal
Author: Michelle Fox
Rating: 4/5 stars

“Bitten and hunted by the werewolf who turned her, Audrey found safety and love in Tao’s arms. But now that their enemy is defeated, she finds adjusting to life as a werewolf harder than she anticipated.

And even though passion burns hot and bright between them, she’s unsure of Tao’s intentions when it comes to their relationship.

Is she just another werewolf to him or the mate he’s always wanted?

This is a quick, steamy read. It is not a novel. FYI. (description from Goodreads.)

This was a quick short read and I enjoyed it. It was one that I randomly picked up while looking for more books in the shifter genre. I’m glad I did.

Even with it being a short story, I feel that I got to know the characters a bit. There was a good balance of character description and the events that took place. There was well-written sex scene in there that added some heat to an already good story. The author was somehow able to get that in there and some regular plot without either element feeling too short. I’m a little surprised by that, for this length. I went into the story thinking the sex would take up a majority of the spotlight.

What I didn’t know until I finished the story, is that this is a short that takes place after a novel where the two main characters first get together. There was enough backstory here for me to get the feeling there was more to it and also that info was enough to help me understand the characters without bogging me down with info. (If I’d read the blurb provided at the beginning of the ebook, I’d have found out this is a continuation from a novel. It’s a different blurb from the one online, but I skipped it thinking I’d read it already. So, that’s partially my bad.) I think this was just fine to read as a standalone story, but I am intrigued enough to consider reading the novel that came before it. The author has definitely grabbed my attention.

fancy lineresizeThis is the second book from Lila Jean’s Billionaire Security Shifters series and I enjoyed it just as much as the first book, The Mountain Lion’s Secretary.

What I liked most about this book is that there were a few more details to help the world building. Some readers might not care as much. Many other readers will probably have read more shifter books and they already know how everything works. Either way, Jean gives just enough detail into how shifters become shifters and some of the attitude humans have toward them in this book. She also does this without beating the reader over the head. It’s just slipped in there, how it should be. There’s nothing mind-blowing, but it builds the world more. It satisfies my curiosity.

Another thing I enjoyed was the action. Compared to the first book, this book is filled with action. While the ending may have been a bit shorter than expected, the rest of the action leading up to the final conflict kept me turning pages. This along with the characters continuing to develop throughout the book made it a great read overall.

Knowing the character who’ll be the focus of the third book, I can’t wait for it to be released. I have no doubt it’ll be just as fun of a read as this one was. It might be even more exciting. We’ll have to see.

fancy lineresizeBillionaire Shifter Romance. It’s rare that those three words are strung together in a book I’ve read, but it happens. That’s the case for The Mountain Lion’s Secretary, the debut novella from Lila Jean’s Billionaire Security Shifters series. And I have to say, I was surprised to enjoy it as much as I did.

When those words from above are strung together in a sentence, sometimes my eyes roll. I want to be perfectly honest with that. But I think my days of eye rolling are over. (That’s a lesson in judging too fast. Even as open minded as I am, I have my flaws.) One of the things that made me like the book was the balance between the more intimate scenes and the plot not getting bogged down by them. I’ve read books that had too much sex in them for their own good. This isn’t one of them. And it’s well-written and helps in building the relationship between the two main characters.

Those two characters are also part of why I enjoyed the book. This is a short book, so there’s not much room to have developed the characters, but with the space available, the author didn’t lack in too many areas. I was able to get to know Zane and Mara. I was also able to see them grow together romantically and on their own.

There was also some action, which should be expected when you have humans changing into dangerous animals. One of the animals in particular intrigues me and I hope to see that one focused on in future books in the series. It doesn’t quite fit into our modern world (or the “real world” in general), so I’d like to see how Jean expands on her minor world building and maybe shows how they’re possible. (I’m being vague because it’s fun and could ruin the fun if I told you the animal.)

Would I read more books from Lila Jean? That’s a very strong yes. I’m also wanting to explore the shifter romance genre more. Now to find where to start while I wait for more from Jean.
