Two months ago, she disobeyed an order, but instead of kicking her out of the Pride, Jace offered her a job. Since then, she’s been battling a completely inappropriate crush on the young, hot Alpha. But when accepting his job offer seems like the only way to keep her skeletons safely in their closet, Abby doesn’t hesitate.

As a long-standing fan of Rachel Vincent’s SHIFTERS series, I was through the roof with enthusiasm when I discovered this spin-off five years later. I recommend reading the prequel / bridge novella, HUNT, prior to this one because it sets the tone for LION’S SHARE, and its events are referenced throughout this story. As fired up as I was about WILDCATS book 1, the author’s switch from Urban Fantasy to New Adult Paranormal Romance did worry me, and my trepidations turned ...more

I absolutely loved Rachel Vincent's Shifters series but although I was happy with the way the series ended I have missed the world and the characters over the last five years. So as soon as I found out about this new spin off series I pre-ordered my copy of Lion's Share and I started reading it the moment it appeared on my kindle. In fact, I read all night until I finished it at 8am because I was enjoying it so much! I've been a bi ...more

While the Wildcats books are set in the original Shifters world and involve many characters you already know, this spinoff series will be romance, rather than urban fantasy. What's the same: The world and its r ...more
Abby - annoying and immature. I just kept thinking, Jace deserves someone so much better than this girl. Frankly he needed a WOMAN, not a girl who's ...more
I'm a big fan of this author and she did not disappoint.
Series: Yes, this seems to be the first in an upcoming series?
Sexy times: Some. Not explicit per se.
Plan on reading more by the author: Indeed
Synopsis There's a lot of cat politics that are more clear to the reader if you have read the previous Shifters series. Even if you haven't, it's clear enough to follow. That said, it's better if you have familiarity with the previous characters and their dynamics.
Anyhoo, in ...more
While you may be wondering about this spinoff and thinking, there’s a 6 book series ahead of it, is it necessary to read all of those first? No. But should you, just to enjoy the incredible awesomeness that is Rachel Vincent? Hell yes. There was also a short story Rachel wro ...more

Unfortunately, I will say I pretty much worked out half the mystery in the first quarter, with just a couple of points that were clarified later in the story.
The main character was very likable with normal aspirations wanting to get on with her own life in the way we all want to have some control over our future. The supporting cast and love interest were also very human by nature with concerns tha ...more
I will say that I wanted Jace to end up as a Hero, and I was NOT team Marc, but in the long run, I prefer Abby for him over Faythe. Yay!

We are back in the Shifters world. And it's so good!!! After the Shifters series ended I was satisfied but I wanted more. I'm so happy the author has decided to revisit it.
The romance in LION'S SHARE takes a center focus when young Abby all of a sudden is not so young anymore. After knowing her since she was just a kid, and seeing the trauma she's been through, Jace sees her for the woman she's now become. And he wants to take a bite.
The politics of the Prides and the council are back i
Even without reading her story, I got the sense that Faythe was the kickass character, and Abby was her inept runner up. Here, I ...more
I can NOT believe she came out with the spin-off. I missed all the characters. Greatly missed them. It's like... coming home. Brings back fond memories of when I immersed myself in this world and the original Shifters series.
Still as good as it was then. I've always felt bad for Jace. Sure I loved Marc and Faythe as the "It" couple more.. but you just can't help but love Jace too.
And it brought back memories of Ethan :( I don't know what her plans are with th ...more
As I totally adored the Shifters Series by Rachel Vincent, it was a no-brainer that I would definitely want to read this spin off series. I consider myself as a Rachel Vincent Shifter Series fan so to say I have high expectations for the Wildcats series is a bit of an understatement!
I purchased a kindle copy of this book from amazon UK. As I have said above I do consider myself a Rachel Vincent Shifters Series fan so couldn't resist purchasing this one. I also should ad ...more
