Publisher's Summary

How degrading. Stuck babysitting a woman because his alpha said so. As pride beta, he has better things to do with his time, like washing his impressive mane, hunting down thugs for fun, and chasing tail - sometimes his own, if his lion is feeling playful.

But his babysitting job takes an unexpected turn when the woman he's assigned guard duty over turns out to be his mate. A female threatened by an outside wolf pack. A woman he wants to call his own. A mate who doesn't fall for his charm. Usually betas leave the roaring to the pride's alpha, but in this case, given his level of frustration, he might have to make an exception. And if anyone doesn't like it, they can kiss his furry tail. Rawr!

Please don't use this narrator again.

I have never left a review before but this narrator ruined the book. The book itself had a good storyline but I just about skipped this book because of his voice

Loved the story

I loved the story. I however did not like narrator, he sounded like a creeper. I will continue to read and or listen to Eve Langlais as long as she writes.

Narrator is awful

Should have kept the narrator from the first book. This guy's voice was terrible, not at all what you want to hear as the voice of a character that is supposed to be a hot shifter.

Shifter Lion pride Beta, Hader, and Wolf shifter Arabella

Hader's Alpha assigns him to babysit Wolf shifter Jeff's sister. Harder knows he's too important to be on that duty. When he meets her he gets a strong vibe that Arabella might be his mate. The male wolves from her pack are out to claim her so they can control her inheritance from her shifter Alpha husband. Lots of ugly, funny and sexy things happen to them until the big showdown happens.

Great story!! HORRIBLE NARRATOR.

I love Eve Langlais' writing. This story was compelling. Overcoming abuse is a topic that should be addressed and the emotional battle to be whole was well done. The narrator was terrible. He made Hayder sound like a 30's gangster, the lionesses sound like old grandma's and Arabella sounded like a "dim-wit" Marilyn Monroe. It was sooooo distracting. This book needs to be re-done.

I just couldn’t get with the Narrator

Please. Young women shouldn’t sound like old Italian aunties. It kills the mood. Just spend money on a real female.

Can't get past the narrator

Voice is good for young adult reading but doesn't do it for romance. Just started to space out the reading because all the voices started to sound the same.

This IS GOOD!

Even with the serious subject the author managed to interject some humor in the right places. When the H said "come on baby go rabid on his a** I laughed out loud". I loved that while letting the hero be a hero Ms. Langlais didn't leave the victim out of her own rescue & victory.

The narrator does a great job.

Great Narration. The narrator does a great job with the various voices and the animal sides. Some real laugh out loud moments. BOOK REVIEW Lovely story that starts with a bang. I always enjoy Eve's books due to the humour, tongue in cheek laughs and great heroes and heroines. They always leave me feeling in a happy mood. This book is no different. I enjoyed this book differently from When An Alpha Purrs purely due to the fact book 1 was more about the banter, chasing and sex, while this book shows how to foster and cherish a developing relationship with an abused female wolf shifter. There is also a bit more story line and action thrown in. Hayder is a typical arrogant, vain about his mane, male lion but at the same time is very protective and encouraging of Arabella, trying to get her to see she is stronger than she believes. Hayder somehow maintains his alpha attitude (even though he is the Beta) while helping Arabella build up her damaged self-esteem. I loved what happened when these two first meet and why Arabella was allergic to Hayder was funny. We also have all the lionesses helping Arabella become tougher.
