The first book in this reverse harem paranormal romance serial easily draws readers in with strong, vibrant characters and an intriguing concept. The romance is sweet but definitely hot and stirring while promising to get even hotter as the story continues but the relationship is has a couple of obstacles that stands in its way…like finding out the man you are dating is not human and he wants her to mate with not only him but two others. There is lots of emotional upheaval in this story not only ...more

I have to say I am as pleased as punch. I have been reading Ms. Fanning;s stories for quite awhile now and I think this might be one of the best one yet. There are more details of the characters and the world building has improved.

In this story Elle is a woman who would rather have a plain existence than the rich pampered life she was born into. She has bodyguards who live with her Shawn is the closest of those. She is on a first date with Ryan a lion shifter who along with his triad brothers ha

I really enjoyed reading this first book of the marvelous & exciting lion shifter reverse harem romance series.
It is about: a rich, reclusive young woman (Maryellen aka El) tired of sexual harassment & constant threats on her life decides to go on a blind date where she meets a unusual man (Ryan) only to later discover that: He is the leader of a pride of lion shifters plus he is part of a triad & She has three mates (Ryan, Trip & Marc) but there are some more unexpected surprises on the way for

El, a wealthy heiress, has been hunted and hurt for her entire life - surviving multiple kidnapping attempts and being basically shunned by her family because her grandfather left all of his money to her upon his passing. The only person that she feels close to is her long-time bodyguard until she meets Ryan on a dating website. She feels an intense and immediate attraction to him when they meet in person and she feels safe for the first time in a long time.

Wow! Just Wow! I don't even know where to start with this one. Action, intrigue, family drama, and betrayal combined with sexy cats, mating bonds, and steamy goodness. This one is all that and more with some crazy twists thrown in. The story centers around Maryellen, which is fitting because once they've found her, this Triad of lion shifters is all about her. The beauty of a story with shifters and mates is that instalove works and in the world Becca Fanning has created, it's a few times over, ...more

I really enjoyed the story. El has lived in fear from kidnappings for years and really doesn't trust too many people. Her family is awful to her for the most part. When she meets Ryan for their first date, her life changes and she is offered the chance for love with not just one man but his brothers too. She will be introduced to the world of paranormals.

This book kept surprising me. The author throws in quite a few real surprises that shake up everything just when you think you know where every

Totally gripping read full of twists, romance and heat!

This was a fab story that had a fair number of pages - and I didn't notice I was so sucked into the story! I love when that happens :D El goes on a dating site date with Ryan and things just explode from there. His triad are her mates but it's complicated by secrets, kidnapping and death threats. The guys find a way to show El that she's it for them but there's way more involved that even they imagined. Ms. Fanning did a great job with the t

El had tried out a new dating sight, using only part of her name to hide how rich her family is and now was going on a first date with a man named Ryan. When they meet it feels right some how and he is rich in his own way. Ryan a Lion shifter and part of a triad looking for their mate. Now meeting the woman who is to be their mate he's sure of it. I loved this story it kept me guessing all the way through with some surprises I didn't expect. The only thing I didn't like was the cliff hanger at t ...more

It was pretty good overall. I liked the work on the individual relations parts because it felt realer than “ooh I looked at you and now we are together forever no complications” approach some authors in this genre take.

Absolutely loved the ‘unexpected’ bond (even better than the others).

HATED the cliffhanger. I usually wait to read books that I know end this way so I can just get the whole series and read straight through....always end up kicking myself when I don’t realize there’s a cliffhanger
Aug 26, 2018 rated it it was amazing
As a writer; Ms. Fanning has evolved and her writing with it. I have read some of her earlier works and while they were good, her newer stories are so much better. There is danger, intrigue and betrayal, as well as steam in them. This was no different. It was great and I didn't want to stop reading! It is a cliffhanger, though. I'm not thrilled with them but am positive the next one will be well worth the wait! I hope she writes really fast as this is the best story yet and I really want to find ...more

This is quite the story and I've loved every word of it; it's terrific. Ms. Fanning has spun a really great tale; full of danger; like family politics, heavy handed parental control, betrayal, untold secrets. And not the usual shifter menage at all. It all begins with an on-line dating site and develops at a quick pace from there. And throw in one human bodyguard and you have quite the mix. And the ending, oh the ending, cryptic is a good one-word description.
For my honest and voluntary review

There's alot of unanswered questions that Shawn and the triad need answers 2 about El but it's hard 2 believe that she trusted 2 people that betrayed her and there's still no answers yet but it's shocking what happened 2 her at the gathering. But it still doesn't make sense why she's always being targeted 4 not just 4 her money but cause f what she is. Instead of them all supposed 2 love females 4 being priceless it's like she's being haunted 2 death. I don't quite understand why they call her L ...more

I really enjoyed this new book by this author, I was wondering if she was going to write a reverse harem and jumped at the chance to read this when I seen it. Plenty of action, intrigue, family drama, and betrayal combined with sexy cats, mating bonds, and steamy goodness.... OH and some really crazy twist that get thrown in as well. I can not wait to see what is in store for the next book. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

I'm not usually game for menage reads but Fanning is a fav author so decided to give it a go. Actually enjoyed the dynamics of this Triad, and the suspense surrounding El kept me motivated with the storyline. A new twist to shifter grafting as well with the forming of triads within the pride. Hot? Well ... had to turn the fan on a few time to help keep my kindle from melting. Great start to a new series.

5-Star Story, 0-Star Cliffhanger

I regret buying. I hope other stories are as great as this one. Although, I hope this is Not how this author normally ends works. I abhor cliffhangers such as this. I understand cliffhangers are used to connect books. However, there’s not usually this horrible dangling without a hint of a follow-on book. The way this ended has left me feeling dissatisfied and unfulfilled.

WOW .. I was instantly captivated by this action packed paranormal romance, it will definitely keep you turning pages all night long. This exciting storyline is filled with drama, suspense, danger and definitely unexpected twists ... lets not forget the cliffhanger ending. OMG bring on the next book!!

I love the cover for this book, and the story is pretty good too. Finding Luna is a reverse harem, shifter romance with lots of action. The book is very entertaining, but it ends in a cliffhanger, so if you don't want to continue with the series, stop reading before the final chapter. The book also contains a lot of graphic sex, so audience discretion is advised.

Ends in a cliff-hanger. A triad of lion-shifters and Maryellen. El lives a very guarded life, and her life is in constant danger. She is put down by her parents and siblings and believes she will never find someone to love her for herself and not her money. Tons of intrigue. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

This book is amazing! I love any kind of shifter book that's outside it's The result of wolves. This has me hooked but it ended way too soon with too many questions unanswered. I hope there is part 2 soon!

I debated spending that much on a book for a writer I had not read before. I would not recommend it. And I never leave lower than 4 stars. It was disappointing.
