I especially love that this series is so different from her Southwestern Shifters series.
I loved meeting Levi and can't wait to meet his other relatives and their partners!
Levi is the first book in the Leopard's Spots series by Bailey Bradford. A highly entertaining, suspenseful M/M romance that you won't want to miss! With a unique storyline, complex characters, humor, witty banter, steamy sexual encounters, and intriguing twists, this story will have you turning the pages faster to see what happens next. A great start to what could be a fantastic series!
Lyndon Hines didn't have the best childhood living with his mentally ill mother, but after she passed away, he was traumatized by the father that he never knew. Saved and taken in by a stranger, he became the father that Lyndon never had, taught him as much as he could about being a cougar shifter, and how to be a man, until he died as well. He was trying to live a normal life when he started being hunted by an unknown shifter. On the run for months, he suddenly knows that he must stop at the property he's passing, a unique scent pulling him in but not sure why, until he sees the beautiful snow leopard.
Levi needed a break after the week of his family's reunion, and shifting is the best possible way for him to relax. The last thing he expected to find was a cougar shifter, his fantasy come to life, in more than one way, and his mate. After their their tryst in the woods, neither of them can stop thinking about the other. When they run into each other in town, Levi finds out about Lyndon being stalked, and insists on bringing him home, hopefully for good, but it's not as easy as he hopes.
Can Levi and his family convince Lyndon to stay, and that he's better off being with them, especially with Levi? Will Levi be able to get past his fears, and except what they have between them? Can Lyndon do the same? Can Lyndon figure out who's behind the attacks, as well as keep everyone safe, before it's too late? You'll have to read this to find out!
I really enjoyed this story, the characters, and the hilarious banter within the family. It's a bit different from the typical shifter stories, but in a good way, as neither kind of shifter knows much about their heritages. There were some issues that I had with the story though. One being that there were some questions left unanswered, and some things that were low on the details, even when it was a big part of the story. There was a lot of sex, which would've been fine, except that it seemed to take priority instead of adding the depth the story needed. The suspense aspect was great, but again, it left lots of unanswered questions at the end. All of this aside, I still really liked the story, and can't wait for the next book in the series.
I would recommend this book, series, and author.
I have voluntarily reviewed this arc provided by the publisher via NetGalley.
There are so many characters that are introduced. I understand that this is the first book in a series, but there are just so. many. people. I couldn't keep anybody straight other than the MCs and Oscar, one of the brothers. Even then, when all the brothers are in the room they all run together.
Shifters. There is an unusual aspect (at least for me). These shifters are unaware of any other shifters outside of their families. They have never come across any before and definitely none of another species. It seems unlikely, then again they probably never leave their compound or stray far from their tiny hometown.
Somehow, Lyndon has come across exactly one other non-family shifter and he happens to be the same species. And that shifter also seems to know nothing about shifters in general. It just seems implausible. Why haven't any of these people researched their backgrounds? Searched for others?
Plot. It revolves around Lyndon and his need to run from an unknown, unseen, stalker. He is probably the poorest example of a shifter. He has the speed of his shift on his side, but all of his senses seem to be dull. Definitely not heightened in any form.
Romantic aspects...there is a lot of sex here. Even the epilogue is just a gratuitous sex scene. Instalove, fated mates, no conflict...none on the romantic scale anyway.
Confusion. There are several times that Levi's dad, Henry, is referenced as looking somewhere or making a sound...but he wasn't supposed to be in the scene. As in, he had left and was not in the house anymore. Maybe that is fixed in the final version, except this is just a re-edited version so was this in the original version? It is odd, jarring and confusing.
I was intrigued enough by Oscar that I want to read his story, but I am in no hurry for it. I'm sure I will get to it eventually.
