Lost Lion Reviews
3.5 Stars The PromiseWhile LOST LION turned out to only have 648 locations with the Bonus story, "Voracious Virgin" taking up the remaining locations in the book, it still is a complete tale involving overcoming profound grief. Everyday for the past two years has been a struggle for this big powerful Lion shifter Maximillion Lionheart. Losing his mate, Patrick nearly drove him to an early grave also, if it weren't for the promise Pat got Max to agree to. That Max would allow love into his life again.Max did not believe it would happen, but since he'd given his word to his dying mate, he could not voluntarily end his own existence. But the pain of loss was so overwhelming especially the first several months the promise was literally the only thing that kept Max alive. His job and having a purpose other than the morass of grief that threatened to pull him under, were the only reasons he got out of bed in the morning. Two years later Max seemed no closer even though he put on a brave face for the outside world. He'd learned to do that in his former pride with an abusive father who punished Max for his mother dying during childbirth.Dylan was a shy, naive young man who'd been changed into a Tabby cat shifter after he'd been attacked by a Feral cat. He figured life would be better in a city as a shifter, since his smaller community wasn't as accepting. What he actually found was loneliness and a great friend, Rock who also happened to be Tabby cat shifter. Unfortunately Tabbies did not have the best reputation and a lot of erroneous assumptions were made about Dylan because he happened to be a Tabby. Ever hopeful Dylan began spending time with a huge, but sad Lion shifter. He thought the man was his mate, but scaredy cat Dylan is too afraid to find out.How is Max is going to fulfil his promise when they closest he's gotten to being social was hanging with a stray cat at the park? A ritual he finds soothing enough to repeat most Saturdays. Usually quiet Max is in a loquacious mood and Dylan learned more than he expected. It explained a lot, but the confession made the Lion even more attractive to Dylan. Now if he could just find enough courage to let Max know he's much more than a stray park buddy.But is Max ready to let someone into his life despite his promise? He feels an attachment to the cat, but as an animal companion. He has no idea what surprises are in store for him. After all shifters only get one mate right?I enjoyed this story enough to purchase the next in the series. I was a nice little shifter short story. I was a little disappointed when I got to the end of the "Lost Lion" story so quickly and found another story, because I wanted to read more about Max and Dylan. On the other hand I like Matchmaking Services stories which is what the Bonus story is about
Very fast paced and there is no conflict to really keep it entertaining I'm afraid.Tabby interacts with Max, is taken home with him and decides to shift to human while there. Max pushes him away, Dylan leaves but 'fights back' and they do the deed. There really isn't a lot more to it than that.
Way too short to pay for at 46 pages. Read it for free if you can, its only a short story.
