Book Review: I'm Not Lion To You by Krystal Shannon


Book Description

He wants her more than life, but can she trust him with her biggest secret?

Kann is a lion shifter from another world. Literally. Even though he’s learned how to walk, talk, dress and sound just like everyone else in Mystery, Alaska, he still can't find his mate.

Until she walks right into the local grocery store. Her blue eyes and killer legs make his lion stand up and roar. Well, that and her soul is glowing just for him. That only happens…

…with soulmates. Which means the magick of his world did cross over to earth with the survivors.

Penny is on the run, being chased at a breakneck pace over the Alaskan countryside. She can't trust anyone and knows it's only a matter of time until she's caught.

When she meets Kann, the sexy backwoods, plaid-shirted man from Mystery, she’s instantly attracted. However, she can’t afford a distraction and she doesn’t want anyone else to get hurt when they come for her.

Except, Kann has never met an objection he couldn't overcome. With patience and determination, he wins Penny over inch by inch. But will Penny's past steal everything from both of them?

I’m Not Lion To You is the second book in the new Soulmate Shifters in Mystery, Alaska series. It’s a full-length, standalone fantasy paranormal lion-shifter romance story featuring a strong human female and an alpha male lion from another world with an inclination for safe-guarding and satisfying his mate. Happily-ever-after and more guaranteed!

My Review

Penny saw something that she shouldn't have and ran away as fast as she could. She came to Mystery, Alaska and everyone seems to want to help her but she doesn't know if she can trust them and doesn't want them to get caught in the cross fire if the bad guys come looking for her. 

Kann cannot believe that his mate walked right into the store he was in but instead of falling for him right away the way he thinks she should, she's scared. He knows that he's going to have to give her some room and some time.

Penny is attracted to Kann but she's not sure she can trust him, he might have followed her there so he can kill her. It isn't until the store owner tells her that he's been there for a while and his friends are in the cabin near hers that she finally calms down enough to let him help her a little bit. Since the snow is thick when she gets there, she needs a little help getting around and he has no problem helping her out. He knows she's running from something and it takes a little time before she shares with him what made her run away from her life. Once these two give into their lust though, there's no stopping them from getting closer. When she is introduced to the rest of his friends at their cabin, I loved all of them. This is the second book in the series and I started reading this out of order but half way through this book I went and grabbed the first book because I want to read the whole series now. 

The real surprise is that Kann has a huge secret too. He's a lion shifter and he and his friends are from another world that was destroyed by volcanoes. All of his friends are shifters and they are great. I cannot wait to read their stories now When danger does come looking for her like I knew it would, they find themselves in more danger than they thought they would be in. I really enjoyed how this wrapped up. Kann might be from another world but he and his tribe are definitely getting used to being on Earth even if some things aren't completely understood by them yet. That just made some of the scenes funny. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
