Maverick Storm is a lion shifter, but he is also a monster. For the better part of nineteen years he was a hitman for some of the most ruthless shifters in the world. He is a cold-blooded killer without remorse. But that isn’t him anymore. He is trying to live a normal life, but it seems fate has other plans, especially when his mate is the daughter of his enemy.

Kettah Milokov is a Palla’s Cat shifter, and the daughter of the biggest Russian mafia boss in America. Her life is not her own, so she leaves, but can’t escape when she runs into her mate, Maverick. He is a heartless killer, and the male nightmares are made of—or so she first believes. Maverick must protect her when she is found, and that means he will have to unleash his lion to keep her safe, and kill his enemy.


Review: The title of this book was so intriguing and I loved the cover. I would like to know who wouldn’t want a man like that?

Maverick Storm has been hiding for six years. He used to be one of the greatest hit man. He never hurt anyone that didn’t deserve it. That is until one night he was going to have to kill a woman and her children. He knew he couldn’t do it. His Lion always loved the sport in the killing and there was no other feeling like that. He now has a garage and he changed his name and everything about himself. He always thought he would be alone until he runs into his mate.

Kettah Milokov knows all the bad things that her dad does to people. She feels guilt over it because she never helps them. She listens to all the screaming coming from downstairs. That’s how it is when your dad is the leader of the mob. Kettah thinks she is weak and will never be like the males of her pack. That is until she is rescued one night and finds out that he is her mate. She knows she can never stay with him.

I’m trying to think of the best way to write this review. I haven’t had the chance to read a lot of Jenika Snow’s books but I am getting more into them. Who wouldn’t want a shifter book about a lion and a cat mating? I will be the first to raise my hand. I knew that once these two were together for a while that the sexual tension would get to be too strong and they would give into their urges. This was a great book and the author did a great job with her characters and I was really hoping that this story would be real.

I will warn you that there is some rough sex and anal play. It wasn’t enough to draw me away but it would for some people. Doing things out of the ordinary is what I think makes a book more unique and the readers get more into it. I was hooked from the first page. I wanted this story to go on for days but sadly it had to end. I will be going and seeing what other books of hers that I haven’t read.
