This short yet deliciously good novella tells the tale of tiger shifter Samira “Sam” Anderson and his journey to adulthood as she attends college away from her Pack. She is chosen to be a rare female sentinel for her pack. She’s never backed down from a challenge and she’s not about to let college be her breaking point. What she didn’t expect to face is finding her mate. Not only is her mate very unexpectedly human, but he’s also exactly the kind of man she’d want. Yet, Gavin has his own trepida ...more

This tiger has bite!

Loving this new series about shifters going off on their own for the first time. In many of the books I read the shifters are well known in their communities and do not have to attempt to hide from humans. So I really enjoyed seeing this different perspective. Our heroine is a dominant female which is awesome, of course, but there are all sorts of characters to meet - geeks, weasels (and not the shifting type), and submissives. And now a bit about the story...

Samira Anderson is a tiger shifter and has never submitted to a challenge but what she feels for Gavin Stone makes her fear that she may lose the tight control she has over her tiger, but loving him means she’ll have to let him in on her secrets in this riveting new adult paranormal romance.

This fast paced and smooth flowing plot captivates readers with suspense, excitement and romance. The well written scenes and details bring the story to life and the characters are strong, compelling and draw

I think Sam and Gavin are perfect for each other, with him she shows so much tenderness and love, "yea. I'm a dominant female. It's in my blood." God, it felt good to be open with him. Cupping one cheek, she studied him. "Are you sure you're okay with all of this?" I liked when these two were together they're were totally cute:
He kissed the top of her breast. "Do you want to bite me?"
"Oh, yes. And I will, multiple times and in multiple places."
There were other characters that caught my eye in

This is the first time I am reading one of novels from this line so I chose a author I know and enjoy reading. Being a older person I sometimes shy away from novels that have characters college bound but will if story is intriguing enough. This novel centers around Sam who is off to a university not far from home,something she feels will bring balance and a experience she feels that is needed for herself. She also will not be like many that will be attending the school because she also has a sid ...more

Lia Davis has done another amazing book. Her Paranormals are strong and dominate with a real need to protect others. I have enjoyed every series she has written and look forward to reading many more in her ROAR series.

“The human behavioral response for being attacked from behind is not to be……….let me quote it……to flip the a**hole over your shoulder and beat the sh*t out of him.”

If you look up New Adult Paranormal romance book this book cover could be cited as the perfect example of this genre. And if you haven’t taken the plunge with either a new paranormal series or Lia Davis, then this is a wonderful addition to both. Ms Davis just knocked this one out of the park with her first foray into the New Adult genre. Well Done. Now I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for the next book.

Will you continue with the series: Yes

Will you read something by this author again: Of course!

Samira is leaving home for the first time on her way to college. She's also quite nervous. Here's a good time for me to mention that she's a tiger. She meets Gavin attending a welcome party after she arrives at school. Not only does he make her tiger purr, but he has some I don't want anything serious baggage when it comes to relationships. He is immediately drawn to her and the chemistry is hell yes hot. Wait till he finds out about her big kitty and the shifter world.

To be young again! Loved Sam, she was dominant, aggressive but protective of her new friends! I loved that she was strong but sweet! Her and Gavin were so perfect for each other and when they were together..there was definite heat! Will they become mates or will in outside danger put Sam's life on the line? Also, what will happen when Gavin, who is human, finds out his girlfriend is a shifter? Loved it!
