Review - Lion in Wait by Lynn Red

Lion in Wait
by Lynn Red

Goodreads blurb:  Cassiopeia is lanky, quick-witted, and spent most of her life running from one thing or another. She escaped an overbearing family, and a series of dangerous misadventures, but then landed square in the midst of a traveling carnival. In the gritty, grimy dirt circus, love is the furthest thing from Cass’s mind – she’s much more occupied with avoiding her boss Lyle’s slimy fingers.

Just about the only things Cass has left are her mind, a few books, and impossibly vivid dreams of a man she’s never met, but who she knows – somehow – is going to find her. And when he does? Well, who knows? But it’s gotta be better than the circus.

Oh, and then there’s the lion who sleeps in her trailer.

At first, Lex was impossible to control. He clawed, he snapped, he roared and raged like any lion would, but somehow never hurt anyone, like there was something more to him than caged animal ferocity. He lashed out at everyone except for a certain woman with curly brown hair and a thing for khaki cargo pants.

No one knew that the REAL Lex – the same man Cass dreamed of for so very long – was hiding beneath the fur and claws. When the lion-shifter lays eyes on the woman he knows he can’t live without, this king of the jungle can’t rest until he’s taken his queen. And when he first reveals the tall, dark and handsome underneath the tail and teeth? Cass isn’t too surprised that the man IN her dreams turned out to be the man OF her dreams.

***This seductive, steamy, shifter romance is completely standalone, and is sure to leave you roaring for more!*** 

About the Author:  Lynn doesn't love anything more than being wrapped up in a hammock with her corgi on her stomach and a pile of her favorite books to read. And by "pile of books" she means "a kindle."
She loves all sorts of romance, but especially ones that feature big, strong alphas who will stop at nothing to prove themselves to the women who melt their hearts.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!

***Received the ebook for an honest review

The cover is awesome and would totally attract me to it, but I’m partial to the sexy beast and the lion too!  ;) 

Of course this is an adult book because it has some steamy scenes :)  It is about 110 or so pages and a quick read :)  over before I wanted it to be!

I decided to read this today because I wanted a shorter read, and Lynn did not disappoint with a great story as always :)  The female lead Cassiopeia made me chuckle because my mom told me that is what my dad wanted to name me if he was allowed….lol and my sister would have been Genevieve or Guinevere.  My mom hates her name, so she wouldn’t let us be named anything weird or old.  Sorry sidetracked :)

Okay back to Cass as she is nicknamed in the story, she has some strength to her, but she lives in fear…of…well living her life.  She hides from everyone but Lex :)  Lex is also hiding in the form of a Lion.  This story seems different than most of the stories I have read by Lynn, and it was great.  I can’t put in words how it seems different, but maybe because it is just a book on its own instead of a series.  It is an HEA book meaning Happily Ever After for anyone who hasn’t seen that before :)  It was a story that had me smiling lot, wanting Lex to bite people at times, and just happy reading it.

Lynn always does a fantastic job with her writing so that you can picture everything as you go along in your imagination.  I kind of wish that Cass and Lex would have ended up in Jamesburg where they could just be and maybe make a cameo in another book so we can get an update or go visiting family ;)

I recommend this book to Lynn Red fans of course (because you can’t miss this one!!) and especially to my shifter friends (you know who you are!!)

Interested in reading???
