Author: Zoe Chant
Reading Platform: Kindle Edition
My Rating: FIVE DELIGHTFULLY ENTERTAINING STARS*****
Wow! Another awesome read from Zoe Chant and a fabulous addition to the Protection Inc. Series! I became totally infatuated with Chant's work three years ago after reading Bodyguard Bear, the first book in this series and immediately became a fan! I fell head over heels for the premise of this series as well as the large, diverse cast of quirky yet endearing characters. Each of the books can be read as a standalone featuring a different member of Protection Inc unexpectedly finding their true mate but having to face perilous danger to claim them and their happy-ever-after. All the members of the team along with their mates generally make a return appearance in each subsequent release, immersing the reader more fully into the spellbinding world of Protection Inc. The characters become our friends and family, which is one of the things I love most about this series. Chant has continued the thrilling adventure with Leader Lion, the fifth riveting release of the Protector Inc Series, and she totally knocked it out of the park - AGAIN! As I stated earlier, each release usually includes the entire team but features a different member of the Protector Inc team and can be read as a standalone. However, I highly recommend reading all the books, or at least the first release, Bodyguard Bear, since it introduces the large cast of the Protector Inc security team and also sets up the world and premise for the entire series. I'm sure it's one decision you'll never regret, and if you enjoy this series half as much as I do, you'll be a fan for life! But let's details about Leader Lion!
The story is exciting, thrilling, fast-paced, easy-to-follow, suspenseful, sweet, heartwarming, romantic, seductive and sexy. The narrative is beautifully written in the third person with multiple perspectives, but the primary points of view are from the two protagonists. The dialogue is smart, snappy, entertaining, well executed, at times hilarious, and flows effortlessly. I'm always impressed with the presentation and consistency of Chant's books. They're well-crafted and edited, the formatting is excellent, the covers are stunning, and the stories entertaining. Chant excels at building vividly depicted worlds with creative storylines, but it's her characters who take center stage. They literally explode from the pages, grab your attention, and completely capture your imagination as well as your heart, and each is unique with his or her own distinct mannerisms, voice, and personality. I fell in love with lion shifter Rafa Flores when he was introduced much earlier in the series and could hardly wait to read his story. Rafa is the handsome, charming playboy and prankster of the Protection Inc. team. He's a lion shifter and as the king of the jungle, asphalt jungle of Santa Martina in this case, he does have a reputation to uphold. After all, he has to stay in shape and keep his beautiful mane looking good while the lionesses do all the hunting! lol... All joking aside, I adored Rafa and discovered there's so much more to him than I ever realized. Hidden behind Rafa's easy smile and joking manner is a disheartened man with an unhappy lion. And talented, curvy stage manager Grace Chang is just bodacious! She's such a delightful contrast of idiosyncrasies, goth but feminine, hard but soft, sweet but strong, humble but brave, shy but daring, kind but determined, loyal but honest, smart but always willing to learn, and dedicated to her job but eager to help others succeed. Grace is the exact opposite of the kind of woman I'd pictured for Rafa, yet they're perfect together. Not only is their sexual chemistry off the charts smokin' hot, they're also hilarious together! See what I mean about Chant's skillful world building and character development? The heroes are all handsome, courageous, charismatic alpha males with kind hearts carefully concealed under their strong, gruff exteriors, and the heroines are beautiful, intelligent, brave women who possess remarkable inner strength, determination, courage, loyalty, selflessness, and kindness. No wilting violets among these women! I love it! Chant skillfully combines these elements to craft a delightfully entertaining paranormal tale filled to the brim with heart-pounding danger, spellbinding drama, heart-stopping adventure, spine-tingling suspense, heartbreaking angst, laugh-out-loud humor, and sweet seductive romance. Did I like this book? No, I LOVED it, which is quite obvious from my wordy and enthusiastic review! lol... I tend to get a little carried away when I truly enjoy a story! Was there anything I didn't like about this book? Not a darn thing! Would I recommend it? You bet and I am but only for adult readers since there are some steamy dream love scenes. I snickered, snorted, cackled, fumed, and sniffled through the entire book but by the end, I was happy, satisfied and well entertained! Will I read this author again? Absolutely! Just as soon as she publishes the next book in the series! And finally was I entertained? Completely! I was drawn into the story on the first page and held completely spellbound until the very last line. Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!
When beautiful actress Paris Hale visits the office of Protection Inc demanding to see Rafa Flores, the entire team takes notice, especially after she announces she's his ex-wife. Oh my! Secrets certainly do have a way of making themselves known! Paris is starring in a new theatre production entitled Mars: The Musical and is convinced someone is trying to harm her. Naturally, Rafa and the entire team of Protection Inc are eager to take the case and bring the villains to justice. Rafa is ready for anything to distract him and his lion from their miserably lonely life. He's tired of one-night stands, tired of being the only male team member who hasn't found his mate, and even more tired of his entire family trying to persuade him to him to settle for someone he could never truly love. Sadly, Rafa and his lion have given up all hope of ever finding their soulmate but when he takes a new job and meets Grace Chang, the stage manager for Mars: The Musical, his entire world is instantly turned upside down. Rafa has finally found his mate but nothing is ever simple for this king of cats. Not only will Rafa have to somehow explain his relationship with Paris, but since Grace is human, he will also have to confess he's a lion shifter. Oh dear!
Grace Chang is done with handsome men, or more accurately, charming men, suave men, polished men, and sexy men. Actually, she's done with all men who seem too good to be true. She'll settle for just one plain, sweet, boring man - maybe. Or so she thought until Paris Hale's gorgeously sexy new bodyguard, Rafa Flores, strolls into her theatre. And he seems to be as interested in her as she is him. Maybe Grace has finally found the one - or not! When Grace learns Rafa lied about his relationship with Paris, she's more convinced than ever that all men are liars and cheaters, just like her ex-boyfriend. Unfortunately, someone is trying to sabotage her new show, the show that will determine her future, and she desperately needs Rafa and his team at Protection Inc to discover who is responsible and why before she loses everything, including her life. But will Rafa be able to convince Grace he can be trusted, save her, save the show, and save the day? Or will Grace have to save him? We'll see! Buckle up and get ready to be wowed! Mars: The Musical is a wild ride!
Rafa is a lion shifter who, unbeknownst to his friends, has tired of a life of one-night stands. He'd love to find his destined mate, but it's starting to seem less and less likely... until he meets Grace Chang. Grace is the funny, professional, and eccentric stage manager of a could-be-a-hit-could-be-a-flop production in the works called Mars: The Musical, and she's tearing her hair out over a series of mishaps. Rafa's there to investigate them and make sure everyone's safe.
The only problem is, he's there at the invitation of his ex-wife, a friend he was married to for a grand total of twenty-four hours after they both spent an impulsive night in Vegas. Paris and Rafa's marriage means nothing to them outside of how much they value each other in general, but Grace has been burned recently enough that finding this out seems primed for disaster. Then, of course, there's the classic "how do I tell her I'm also a lion" and "how do I tell her I instantly know we're going to be together forever," and Chant gets both good angst and good humor from the fact that Rafa is in the difficult position of knowing that he really could screw up his chances at what he knows beyond a doubt is true love.
Combine all of that with a sweet, pleasantly geeky background romance, a great ensemble from the rest of Protectors, Inc. and the cast and crew of Mars: The Musical, and lots of shifter fun, this is just a fun and terrific read.
While this is a shape shifter PNR, in this one, the lion didn’t really come into the story much; it’s more of a cultural, hidden thing, and the lion itself only showed up once during the story. But that’s okay, because the story didn’t need it so much. there’s mystery, some action, and a roll call of the rest of the team, and a mysterious stranger who shows up in the middle of it all.
