This was a good shifter story where a human girl and a werelion rancher fall in love. We didn't get to know the main characters very well, but they were both likable. The sexy scenes are well-written, but some of them seem unnecessary to the plot. The human heroine knows about shifters, because her friend married a bear shifter, so that explains why we don't have any angst about the hero being a lion.

I enjoyed the unique take on werelion society. Our hero doesn't want to live like a lion in Afr

This was a super fast, steamy read. This is the second book in the Sassy Brides series and while I enjoyed this book I liked the first one more. The biggest drawback for me on this story was how Rake was willing to lose his chance at his mate due to his family's threats. From what I have read with other shifter stories this did not seem like a typical shifter. Most would do anything to connect with their mates and unwilling to walk away for any reason. However once Liza convinced Rake she was mo ...more

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I have been waiting for Liza’s and Rake’s (Raleigh to his family) story since I read about them in Hearts Laid Bear. It was a very fast read for me but I loved Liza’s character – snarky, smart, talented and hot for her werelion-to-be! Rake has trouble with his family/pride and this story is about overcoming those issues to be with Liza. Their “courtship” seemed short and I would have loved to read more of a backstory but then it w ...more

"No More Lion, Sassy Shifter Brides"
by Anya Nowlan

I am an independent reviewer that was given an advance reading copy. I received this book from the author. This is my honest review.

"No More Lion" is a paranormal romance novella. It is part of a series but can be read as a standalone. The writing is concise and does well as a quick read. The characters are pleasant, with the exception of the certain bad elements. The story deals with breaking away from family traditions and making it even

I was given this ARC for a honest review. Love it! Rake is just trying to start over in life outside of his pride and they do not want to let him. Liza came from money and a very well to do family. She wants to live off her own work not her families money. They meet each other at their friends wedding. It was instant attractive. Now his pride refused to let him hook up with anyone outside of the pride. This is a great read and recommend it.

Author Anya Nowlan, once again takes readers to Shifter Grove. Full of hot, hunky shifter cowboys looking for true love. The second in the new series 'No More Lion', provided a fast, fun read where we fall in love with Rake the steamy, bad boy lion shifter with a heart of gold.

I am loving this series and can truly say the only thing bad about the books is they go by so fast! I am definitely looking forward to returning to Shifter Grove in the next book.

3 1/2 Stars - Lisa and Rake were so into each other which was good. This Werelion was insatiable...heck yes. This feisty human was too. I only regret these stories are way too short. There was so much more that could have made this a definitely well rounded story. Example, the pride could have been expanded upon much more. I don't want to say anything more for I do not like spoilers. If I gave my opinion any would give things away.

Werelions like wild lions are run by the pride females.
The males job is to protect the pride and make babies with
As many females as possible. Rake refuses to be a brood male.
His human mate is threatened by pride were-lionesse.
Rake shows the 3 attackers what a male lion is capable of when protecting what's his.

I an really enjoying this series. It is a refreshing and different angle from the other shifter and paranormal books I have read before. The connections are almost instant and the love that is shared is burning hot. I love the idea of a town where all can settle regardless of their history or back ground and be treated as equals. I can not wait to read the rest of this series.

This is a very fast read and I thought that it was pretty good but lacked enough conflict resolution - it was too fast and too easy. I would of liked to see the conflict taken further to make the outcome a little more credible.
