Book Review For: TAMING THE LION by Kerry Adrienne
Taming the Lion (Shifter Wars Book 3) - Kerry Adrienne
Taming the Lion (Shifter Wars)Taming the Lion by Kerry Adrienne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

'TAMING THE LION' by Kerry Adrienne is book Three in the "Shifter Wars".  This is the story of Alicia and Marco.   I have not yet read the previous book but feel this can be a standalone book.

Alicia healer for the Bear shifters.  This book opens to the aftermath of a Bear and Lion fight/ war seen.  Alicia is going off to make sure that all the bears have been treated  and no one was left out injured somewhere.  While looking for hurt bear she runs in to Marco who is a Lion Shifter who is hurt and possibly dying.   Even though she lost a friend to a Lion and that they are their enemy, she knows she has to help him.

Marco knows he is hurt bad and thinks he is dreaming when he see Alicia.  Alicia is very beautiful  but he knows if his family comes looking for him they will kill her.  So he tries to tell her to just let him go but she does not.

This story had the theme of two loves who both sides were enemy but yet they loved each other.

Good Story and Characters
Pursuing the Bear (Shifter Wars Series,... Pursuing the Bear (Shifter Wars Series, Book 2) - Kerry Adrienne

Bria was in a tent at Deep Creek National Park. Bria had a gun at her waist but it was more for mental security than anything. Coming back to Deep Creek is the biggest mistake of Bria's life.If Bria failed her career would be over she would be the laughing stock of the college and her peers. If she didn’t discover what she came for she had to discover something. Even worse her parents would be devastated if she made no impact on the academia. It seemed like all her parents cared about. Bria couldn’t take any more of her parents disdain and disappointment . Dr Robert Dane had been Bria’s boyfriend until he stole her research and published as his own. Then a man came upon bria’s campsite He was looking for dead wood that he repurposed into furniture. He said he name was Derek Poole and he was also an off duty ranger. For some reason Derek felt familiar to Bria. she couldn’t let him or anyone interfere with her work as she had too much invested. Bria was a ursinologist which was someone who studies bears. This park ranger was hot and Bria was attracted to him but she came here to work. Derek was a planner and took things slowly that ways he had time to make decisions based on logic and details and not pure emotion. The Cave Of whispers had to be protected as Derek and all the bear shifters knew. Yet Derek was compelled to be near Bria and he was definitely attracted to Bria.  Most any other campers wouldn’t have gotten more than a warning or maybe a ticket .  Bria knew bear shifters existed she had seen a man and his child shift once when Bria was a child right here in this park. Derek figures out Bria is his mate. There is a war coming from the mountain lions as the lions wanted the bear territory for their own and wanted to claim it through war.

I liked this story. It was annoying though to keep being reminded that Bria must do something spectacular as she thought maybe then her parents would love her. I felt the ending was a little rushed also. But i did like Bria and Derek as a couple. I did like the struggle between  Derek and his bear that isn’t usually shown that much in shifter stories. I liked the characters a lot as well as the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.

Review: Waking the Bear by Kerry Adrienne (@kerryadrienne)

Series: Shifter Wars
Publisher: Carina Press
Published: August 1, 2016
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Length: 212 pages

I am a huge fan of the Bear when it comes to shifters. Just call me Goldilocks, because bear shifters are Just Right! So whenever I see a bear book, I tend to not bother looking twice and just throw caution to the winds. This doesn't always work out the way I hope though. Such was the case for this book.

I wanted to really like this book. I mean, hello, there is a picture of a bear and the words Shifter Wars right on the front cover. Unfortunately, this one just didn't do it for me. I mean, it was all right. But I had some issues.

First off, our girl, Amy started out a bit spunky. Starting over after her loser boyfriend stole her ad campaign and her promotion, she is planning on focusing on her 'art'.  But it takes her weeks to unpack and get in the groove, and very little is said about her actual painting, other than the fact that it's "good". Pfft. Weak. I really would have liked to seen her art more developed, it might have given her more personality, especially since it's what she is supposed to be so passionate about.

Then there are the Bears. They are protecting the area and this sacred cave from the "lions". Yeah, not the big haired african kind apparently, more like the bobcat/cougar/mountain lion type. I was bummed about that. Plus all we really hear is that the Lions are bad, and the Bears are good. Why the hell can't they share? Don't know. Even the sacred spirit in the cave is meant for both of them. Sure, sure, the bad guy happened to be a lion, but I really didn't see why there was this whole big war going on. The rest of the lions didn't seem all that bad to me.  I needed some real reasons besides, 'because'.

I guess the whole war thing felt a bit contrived and not very well thought out to me.  Maybe that will change in the coming books. Eh, I don't know, but I probably won't read another in this series. This book got a 2 star ranking. It was okay, but nothing special.

Carina Press and Netgalley provided me with this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

 
Sexy shifter passion is awakened when two unlikely lovers are challenged by secrets, danger and an unstoppable need to claim one's mate…

For human Amy Francis, the secluded cabin in Deep Creek is the haven she needs to map out a fresh new start. She never expected her heart to be reawakened by a distraction like Griff Martin, commanding yet gentle, too ferociously sensual to ignore. It's clear that patrolling the forest is more than a job to Griff—it's a means of survival. But what Amy doesn't realize is she's reawakened the beast within him.

Griff's dormant hunger is stirred by this intoxicating woman…and threatened by the secret she must never learn. Duty-bound to defend his bear clan against an avenging pride of lion shifters, Griff's entire world is upended when he meets Amy. His animal need to claim his mate has taken hold, but that very desire could seal her fate as an unwitting pawn in battle.

Now, as a shifter war looms, Griff must decide between letting Amy go or following his most carnal instincts. To have her would change his life…but risk everything he knows and was born to protect.

Book one of the Shifter Wars series

The Shifter (The Healing Wars, #1)
The Shifter (The Healing Wars, #1) - Janice Hardy 3 1/2 stars. It reminded me of Touch of Power and there were also things in it that reminded me of Star Crossed by Elizabeth Bunce, but this one more of a middle grade book.

The Shifter - Janice Hardy Definitely a great series, but I think it might be better for an older, more mature kid. It has some violent scenes, but I loved reading through it and the action started from the first page and didnt stop until the end. I will be adding the next books to be "to read" shelf.
