Audiobook Review – Lion Time by Zenina Masters
Leandiir is desperate. She has no interest in following in the family tradition of joining a male lion and being one of his females. She is timid by nature but only when it is personal. She heads to the Crossroads and seeks out a mate. The pickings are slim and she finds that the bar owner tends to both protect and dismiss her as a spineless female which is fine with her. She has no interest in being overwhelmed by the tiger, or does she?
I recently reread this book in audio, still enjoyed it thoroughly!
I am so happy to have discovered this author and series!! I am really enjoying it! This is the second book and still shows great promise for things to come in the series.
I loved Lee!! She is an awesome character! She has been beat down by life and keeps getting up! She has a wonderful spirit and attitude for all she has been through. And Jim is just the right man for her! They are a great pair and I love the dynamic of their relationship.
This time around we get more of a feel for the Crossroads and how things run there. We met several shifters I am hoping to get stories for as well. So many possibilities and room for growth in the small community!
The story takes the front burner in this series and it is a great tale. I thought it was very well told and the resolution worked for me. Lee had her “You go, Girl” moment!
It is a fairly short read and at times things are a touch slow. More sex would have helped. It is erotica after all!
The steamy scenes that were included were delicious!! I just wished for a little more!
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Kellie Kamryn, who tends to be hit or miss with me. I like her read in general, as long as I speed it up, it is more the production quality that ruins things. This was better than others, less of the reading from a cave sound. I enjoyed her energy throughout the read and the consistency of the voices. Regular speed is too slow and has strange pacing, punch it up to double and it sounds great. She has a tendency to really hit the consonants, but that is just me getting picky. Overall I like her tone and would love her if not for the pace and production.
I am eager to see the rest of this series in audio, I have enjoyed the ebooks and would love to get all caught up in the series with audio!
*** I hope this review was useful to you and helped your decision to read or not read this book. I love reading and sharing my opinions with other readers. I listen at double speed; all my impressions of the narration are from that setting. Thanks for taking the time to read my review! ***
