WOW! I love the way Christine Warren writes and I'm a HUGE fan of her "Others" series. "Walk on the Wild Side" is the 5th book and this time she serves us a wicked hot helping of werelion, or as they prefer Leos. If you've missed out, here are the other books in order in this series: "Wolf at the Door", "She's No Faerie Princess", "The Demon You Know", and "Howl at the Moon". They're hot and they're supernatural.

Kitty was a perfectly normal 24-year-old farmgirl. She was raised by her grandparent...more

The 5th book in the Others series, is going down as one of my faves in the series. What we know is that The Others, vampires, shifters, Fey etc; have made their come out to the human world. The storm has calmed down and humans are slowly coming to terms with that, they are things that go bump in the night. While this series has its ups and downs, this was definitely an up for me.

Kitty Sugarman is having a bad night. She gets hurt in a car wreck and all of a sudden s...more
This was a pretty good book. I can't believe I have never found this series before. It is a paranormal one and usually I am all over them. It had a good amount of alpha male and sexual tension to keep me going. And the whole "mate" thing gets me everytime.

I believe this was the 5th book in the series and I will go start back at the beginning. This is a standalone book however it would have been helpful to know some more details about "The Others" before reading it. I guess they had a revealing i...more
This is the best one of her books so far. The Others have Unveiled their existence to humans and it's been more than a year. It doesn't really have much of an impact on assistant librarian (true to the stereotype, she doesn't get out much)Kitty Sugarman in rural Tennessee. That is until she gets in a car wreck and the panic and adrenaline makes he shift into lionness form. She discovers she's half Other and goes to Las Vegas to meet her father who is the Felix of his Pride and is dying.

My rating on this book of Christine's is Hot Hot Smokin Hot. I loved this one. The best so far... I couldn't put it down. I loved Marcus, yummy so Alpha. But he doesn't want to scare off Kitty who has come to Las Vegas to meet her real father who just happens to head the pride of Leos that Marcus is in.
Kitty finds out that she is not just a human during a car accident,when she unexpectantly changes into a lion. Her mother has to confess that her father is a werelion therefore Kitty is a halfbree...more
I read it all in 2 days! It is really good and worth reading. I respected Kitty and her southern quality and found that Max (or Marcus) had a lot strength and even had a soft spot for what was important to him. Surprise ending though!!
I have become quite a fan of Christine Warren's The Others series, and this was a great addition to that world. The difference is this is the first stand alone book in the series so far...set in Las Vegas, there are no characters from the previous books that we have come to know, but I actually liked that. I do hope that the Red Rock Pride of Leos gets another visit from this author.

Max is the baas (or heir apparent) of the Red Rock Leo pride, headed by Martin Lowe. Kitty is a good southern girl...more
Absolutely amazing!!!!! Definitely in second for best in the series so far!Just behind Big Bad Wolf lol ;)
Max was so insanely hot!!! He was so strong and big and dominant and so sexy! I loved how tough and powerful he was and how he was always so protective over Kitty (though perhaps at times a little too much), but he was so possessive over her, it just added to his deliciousness lol ;)
The sexy scenes were fantastic, despite how long it took to get to the first one and that there was only two i...more
This is another great installment of Christine Warren's Others Series..

In this book we meet Kitty whom up until a couple of weeks ago thought she was human, through and through. She has a mother who's plans have never included a child,a father who she never knew and is dead, and grandparents whom were all the parents she ever truely needed. So when she gets furry and shifts into a 350lb African Lioness, to say that she was suprised is a gross understatement. So, she is finally told whats up, and...more
Kitty is an average, 24yr old, young southern librarian who realizes her life isn't so average when a tragic car accident causes her to shift into a lion or “Leo Other”. Never knowing her presumed dead father was a Leo, Kitty’s normal human life has just been sent into a tailspin. Kitty’s grandfather, the only father figure Kitty has ever known, tells her that not only is her father alive but also the leader of the Los Vegas Leo Pride. Shocked with this new and frightening side herself, Kitty ac...more
Trapped in a car wreck with her mother, desperate to escape before the car exploded, Kitty "unconsciously" triggered her Change and turned into a genuine Big Cat!
So when her mother admitted that her father is actually alive and living in Las Vegas, Kitty decided to go see him and get some training on how to control her inner lioness.

Landing in Las Vegas, Kitty promptly walked into a day-time soap opera, with a rich and dying patriarch (her father, the Pride leader), his scorned ex-wife together...more

Very enjoyable story of a young woman, Kitty, who learns she's a shifter, has a father who is the Felix of a pride of shifter lions who is dying and several hostile, possibly homicidal relatives who don't want her around. She also meets her father's second in command, Max, who she finds overbearing but also reassuring and incredibly attractive. The chemistry between Kitty and Max is great as Kitty learns to master her ability to shift and figure out how to fit into the shifter world, if she even...more

Some of the books in this series haven't grabbed me at all, but Walk on the Wild Side isn't one of them. Kitty and Max's(Marcus) story is well worth the read. Kitty has no experience with the Others, but when she finds out her father was one, and she has the chance to meet her father, she takes it. But her father's ex wife and children aren't happy about the situation.

Max is the second in command of the pride, and when Kitty walks into his life he isn't expecting the punch in the gut her presenc...more

Seriously ! the third book of this series i read and gets 5 stars !!!
absolutely amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing !

Marcus is the definition of the word "gentleman" >>> he is just so so so caring and at the same time he is an Alpha male and that combination is the best.Ever

Now Kitty is such an amazing heroine and a strong one which i liked the only thing i regret is her not having mourned her father's death probably and that she didn't get the time to get to know him better because he sounds so lovi...more
Loved the premise. The story itself was a bit annoying here and there. I can't understand why Max didn't assign a body guard to her right off the bat. There were many obvious things that Max and her father could have done to insure her safety but didn't, probably so the story would go the way it did. But it strained my 'Suspension of disbelief' that these 'smart' business men could be so obtuse and gullible. Then the ending was super sappy with plenty of moralizing blah blah blah... Fabulous if...more
I liked almost everything about this story.

The main character Kitty is kind of a moron. Five near-death incidents are apparently coincidences. Your spoiled rotten half-siblings won't mind finding out you're the lost heir to their multimillionaire father. Normal people get shot at all the time in Vegas. Sure, maybe in Kittyland. It was difficult to like her for the first part of the book. She was rude and scared and painfully ignorant while being stubborn and insulting. Her character development...more

This is the first of Ms. Warren's books in this series that have dealt with Others away from New York. These others are lion shifters. I liked the setup for the story and the follow up. Kitty drew me in and made me like her from the very first. She is a strong and intelligent woman that has made the best of a mother that wasn't there for her most of the time and a father that left before she was born. Kitty isn't bitter, for the most part, she has a very southern outlook on life. Ms. Warren's wa...more

It's been an interesting week for Kitty. She's nearly died in a car accident, discovered that she gets fanged and furry when she's terrified, and Kitty's found out that her dead father is wasn't really killed in a car crash on prom night. Not only is daddy alive, he is the "Felix" (alpha) to a were-Lion pride in Las Vegas. While Kitty's in no hurry to forgive her dad for abandoning her-- in fact s...more
Poor Kitty has just found out she's a werelion and the father she thought was dead, is alive and living in Las Vegas. Since he's the only one she knows of who can help her with her new predatory instincts, she flys over from Tennessee to meet him. She is met at the airport by her first would be assassin who is scared off by Max Stuart, her father's heir apparent for the Red Rock Pride. One look at Max's yummy goodness and Kitty's ovaries sit up and take notice. He shows her around Las Vegas and...more

Kitty Sugarman just found out she's a were-lion, courtesy of the father she's never met. Now she's to go to Las Vegas to meet him, but more importantly to learn to control her shifting so she doesn't hurt someone.
Max Stuart is Martin Lowe's (Kitty's biological father)second in command. The baas to his Felix. He's sent to pick Kitty up at the airport and finds her in the restroom in her lioness form with a would-be assassin. Obviously someone doesn't want Kitty to meet Martin. As the story progre...more
1.5. Harsh laugh. Where to start. So first off, we have a young man wandering around sowing his wild oats, knowing full well that his dipping in any watering hole will trigger said hole's fertility, and hanging around long enough for an oat to take root, then...leaving a 16 year old girl pregnant with a half Leo?!

That's the setup.

Our h, having just discovered by accident she's a shifter (literally, she was in a car accident and shifted to get out), finds out her daddy wasn't a human boy killed i...more
To be honest I didn't finish this one. The book is about 330 pages long, I made it through about 290. That was the point when I realized I didn't care even the faintest amount what happened next and was probably wasting my time forcing myslef to continue. So this review is based on the first 90% of the book.

To begin, I've been on the fence about this series since I started it. For the most part I rated the first four novels (I have not read any of the E-books) as average--good premises, decent c...more

Another terrific book in the continuing tale of the Others. Set almost a year after the coming out, Kitty Sugarman is in for a big surprise.

After a horrifying car accident, Kitty Sugarman (ironically named) shifts into a Leo, the lion form of a werewolf (aka a werelion). She's scared and needs answers. NOW.

Her mother finally admits to her that her father isn't dead like she had been told, and he lives in Las Vegas. So Kitty hops aboard a flight and heads west looking for the answers to why she t...more

When Kitty Sugarman travels to Las Vegas to see her father for the first time in 24 years, she wasn't expecting to fall in love. Max Stewart, her father's second in command, falls instantly in love with her and follows her around like a puppy kitty cat (they are lion shifters after all). Unfortunately her fathers new family isn't as happy to see her. The attempts on her life start in the airport and continue unceasing.

I immediately liked Max. His inner dialogue was totally hysterical....more

Kitty is in a car accident with her mother (Misty) and she is trapped inthe wreckage and fire is starting then suddenly she is out of the car and so is her mother and she has 4 feet and TAIL!!!

Life used to be comfortable for Kitty Sugarman until she found out that her father was a shifter... a loin shifter.

To learn how to control the beast she goes to visit him.... not realising that he is one of the ricest men in Las Vegas and his second in command is a commanding and domineering man called Max...more

I've had the opportunity to read several books by Christine Warren now and I was beginning to give up on her. I enjoy "The Big Bad Wolf" but several of her other books left me less than impressed. However, Walk on the Wild Side put her back in my good graces. The story was well thought out, the characters charming and loving and the very sexy!

24 year old "Kitty" Sugarman had a car accident what revealed to her that she was not totally human but an other: a lioness. Once she discovers this secre...more

Walk on the Wild Side is another fun read in the Others series by Christine Warren. This book provides a glimpse into the world of the Leos--werelions--as it follows the journey of country-girl Kitty Sugarman as she learns about the legacy her absent father left her--the ability to change into a lion. Traveling to Las Vegas to meet her "sperm donor", she discovers the man destined to be her mate, and a great deal about herself as well. Max Stuart is the heir apparent to the Felix of the Red Rock...more
loved it. it was different with the whole werelion or leo thing. Kitty is a strange mixture of vulnerablibity, sass, compassion and iron grit determination and courage. unknown to her as soon as she arrives Max, the prides second in command has already got her marked down as his mate. but nothing is straight forward and as the number of attempts on Kitty's life begin to mount up it's obivious that some one wants her dead, while fending off horrid relatives with a spioled brats of a step mother a...more
A young woman named Kitty Sugarman found that she was not human. In order to find out who she truly was, she goes to Las Vegas to find her father, only to realize that there is more than expected. A suductive male and a money hungry side of her father's family.
The book was good, but in some ways cliche. I admit that it was written good and all, but then the protagonist did not seem to encounter much problem. All she had to faced was a the family who seemed to even try to kill her. In addition,...more

Born and raised in coastal New England, Christine Warren lived in the South and the Mid-Atlantic before hopping to the other side of the country to take up the life of a transplant in the Pacific Northwest. She completely bypassed those states in the middle due to her landlocking phobia. Hmm, need to research a scientific term for that...
