RE Butler's LOVING LACHLYN BOOK BLAST ~ review and giveaway

For many years, mountain lion Alek Fallon believed he was fated to be alone forever. But after meeting Lachlyn, he knows that he’s found his mate in the sweet she-bear and opens his home to her and her second mate, were-bear Jericho. Lachlyn is a shifting dud and cannot transform into her bear self. When Jericho’s father tries to force her into her bear form using a cattle prod, she nearly dies. Jericho’s father swears to find them, and now Alek, Jericho, and the lion pride are working together to keep everyone safe. When the mountain lions’ enemy interferes, it’s not only Lachlyn’s life that is on the line, but all of theirs.

This book contains plenty of m/f/m loving, two men who will love their woman to the best of their ability, interfering female lions who don’t know when to give up, and a camper used as a honeymoon suite. Be prepared for growling, neck biting, ceremonial marking, and a lot of sweethearted male mountain lions who just want to find love.

I always wanted to be a homebody and live in one place for my entire life, but fate had other plans. In the past twelve years of my married life, we’ve moved seven times, including from one coast to the other. Southern New Jersey is home now and I love it. I have two young children, a husband who begrudgingly pays for my ebook addiction, and two dogs that think they’re people. After college, I spent eight years as an executive assistant before “retiring” at twenty-seven to become a stay-at-home mom. I have a soft spot for self-published authors, Ghirardelli chocolate, muscle cars, and men with tattoos. Most people who know me don’t know I have a tattoo of a tiger on my hip or that I have an unhealthy obsession with The Simpsons.

I love sunsets, several cups of coffee in the morning, and I absolutely cannot live without books. When I’m not busy with my family, you’ll find me sitting at my desk working on any number of projects, including reading, reviewing, and writing.

I adore talking to fans and other authors, so please write to me!  You can email me at rebutlerauthor@gmail, find me on Twitter, or join me on Facebook.

My Thoughts:

Adults only! ;-)

Well, let me say that I read book one Seducing Samantha first. This book would stand alone easily though. This series is mainly focused on lion shifters with some were bears and humans, and a wolf shifter thrown into the mix as well.

In Seducing Samantha (book one) we meet Sam, a human music teacher at the elementary school. She's had a tough time and moved to try and get away from her ex. I love the way sweet little Ben decides to try and hook his Dad up. :-)

We meet many male lion shifters too. The males moved to Ashland to get away from the vile, uncaring female lions. The males take care of each other and live together in a boarding house. They all long to find a mate but most think it's a lost cause given the way the women of their species act.

In book two, Loving Lachlyn, Alek is a lonely lion who despairs because his brothers have found their mate, and his uncles too. Every one seems to be mating in pairs and he's alone. If he doesn't have another male to pair with how could he have a mate?

All good things come to those who wait. ;-)

While visiting a neighboring den of bear shifter friends he meets Lachlyn and Jericho, her mate. The soon realize that the three of them were meant to be in a tri-mating.

Things are never dull with the female lions making trouble. Add in a mean bear leader and things are doubly dangerous. 

I really liked Seducing Samantha (book one) and I was happy to read Loving Lachlyn but I do have one itty bitty complaint. The characters and situations are repeated and that is a good thing if you haven't read book one. Having read that book, I found the repeating of the stats annoying and unnecessary, especially hearing that the female lions were cruel, heartless and uncaring. I got that after reading it the first two or three times.

That being said, I did like this book. I love how nurturing and sweet the lion males are. It is a nice change of pace to have the women being the uncaring ones instead.

So far, in both books the women (with the exception of Lisa) have two mates. If you are leary of m/m action, there's no need to worry. The men are brothers or consider themselves as such. Even so, there is lots of steam. These are very passionate beings. Grrrrrrrr ;-)

In addition to the steam, you'll find action, some drama, hunky, kind, and loving males, a wonderful sense of family between the characters, some danger, and of course romance. You'll get the whole enchilada!

If you like shifter stories, read Loving Lachlyn, and read Seducing Samantha too.

I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I really liked the set up for the next book. I can't wait to see what happens between Tristan, Micah, and Melody.

  1. I want^^ and i'm glad there is no ned for book 1 first ( repetition can get boring) but lion shifter^^ so tempting and other kind as well even better!!!
    i'm sold!

    1. It's true you could skip book one but I actually liked it better than book two. In book one the kids were so sweet and it helps you understand what is going on with the lionesses.

    2. don't worry it's like like i would voluntary skip it ^^ but i'm starting to be relieved when i know that if i had any books i could read it without waiting ( since it can take years to fill gaps^^)

    3. I like that too when you dont have to read it in order. I've found alot of time where book 2 or 3 will be really cheap but not book 1.
