When shy eighteen-year-old Sasha Brento moves to America for her final year of high school, her innocence is blown out of the water when she learns shifters are real. Not only are they real, but a lion shifter named Savron wants to claim her as his mate. The determined shifter is ten years her senior, and Sasha knows nothing about the mating bond. Her life quickly becomes filled with drama as she begins to question everything she’s ever known. Can Sasha and Savron overcome their fears and make their relationship work?
Review: Sasha’s Lion is the first book in the Sin City Shifter series by Hazel Gower. I chose this book for two reasons. One is that I have not read this author before and the second is I love shifter novels. I always love reading new authors take on shifters.
Sasha Brento is from Australia. She moved to America because her Mother would not have moved to join her boyfriend unless she came with her. Therefore, Sasha is in a new school in her last year of high school. Sasha does not know anyone in town but does manage to make one friend. However, her brother is what caches her attention.
Savron is a hot and sexy lion shifter ten years older than Sasha. Savron has never even dated a human sticking to other shifters. He is thrown for a loop when he finds out his sister’s friend is his mate and a virgin to boot. Savron does his best to balance the growing emotions to mate with Sasha and her getting used to him and his life.
This book was well written with the main and secondary characters stimulating and engaging. While the overall concept of an 18-year-old high school student moving out of her mother’s house and into her mates house is a bit unrealistic the pace of the story was believable. I loved how the sex was discussed and no pressure given to Sasha by Savron. His waiting even after they moved into together was nice to see. Overall, this was a great story. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
