He Ain't Lion (Ridgeville #1)
Life sucks… And then you get turned into a werelion…
Curvaceous, blonde bombshell Maya Josephs is looking for a little action to take her mind off of her recent break-up. Crazy werecats or not, an evening at Genesis is exactly what she needs. And when she meets the hotter than hot, super-sexy owner, Alex O’Connell, the alpha lion shifter is just the man to fit the bill for a one-night stand.
Dumped like a rotting piece of meat by her ex, Maya is on the prowl, fixin' to do whatever it takes to get herself a piece of the gorgeous furball. Besides, what’s the harm in a girl having a little bit of fun?

You're Lion (Ridgeville #1.5)
Newly turned lioness Maya Josephs is so not good at being the prima of the Ridgeville pride. She doesn’t give a damn about protocol or hierarchy, and the last thing she wants to do is play nice with the pretentious tigress shifter leader who’s come to pay her respects. Especially since the little bitch seems entirely too grabby with her mate, Alex, for Maya’s taste.
With new pregnancy hormones making her inner kitty extra bitchy, Maya’s not sure who she’s going to murder first: her gyno for discovering the pregnancy, her guards for following her every move (and annoying the living shit out of her), or the striped beyotch cooing over Alex. Screw it. She'll start with the tigress and work her way around to the other two.
Lucky for everyone involved, it’s a good thing Alex knows how to tame her inner she-cat…and make her purr.

Perfectly plump Carly’s paranormal-wererabbit world goes kablooey on the night of the semiannual Gaian Moon. While all of the furry creatures in Ridgeville decide to knock boots and make babies, the only thing she wants to do is hide from all of the weenie-swinging men, including her would-be mate, Neal. There’s no denying he’s hotter-than-hot, and her bunny wants him more than her next dandelion, but there’s just one teeny-tiny problem. You see, Neal has wandering eyes, and a love for women that’s even bigger than his home state of Texas. But, to her surprise, the lion pounces when she least expects it…and claims her before she has the chance to say “No.”
As if her life isn’t crazy enough…it just happens to get that much crazier when someone decides they want her dead.
Question is—can she survive whomever or whatever the hell is hunting her, while trying her damnedest to get over the fact that Neal had a life before he met her?
For both their sakes, she sure as hell hopes so.

Before I get to my review I just wanted to preface it this with a note. If your under eighteen, don't like coarse language or hard sex these books and this review are not for you.
So, I stumbled across this series of books purely by accident one day. Shifter books are at the top of my list for genre of books I like to read. The thing is for the most part the books are about wolf packs. After a while when you have read a substantial quantity of them they start to get a little similar. So, I decided to do a bit of a search and see what other type of shape-shifter books were out there.
That was how I found the Ridgeville Lions. The first thing that caught my eye about these books was the covers. The colours were eye catching and the men on the cover FUCK HOT!!!!
I am going to admit I read this series of books out of order. The first book I found was Ball of Furry, which I started reading before I realised it was a series. I was extremely intrigued by a book in which a lion and rabbit get together.
When I got to the end of Ball of Furry, I immediately purchased He Ain't Lion, because I just wanted more. You're Lion had been on my TBR pile for a few weeks now but it had to wait as I had a few other books I needed to read for reviews. When the opportunity came up to review all three books, I jumped at the chance.
These books a hot well written romances. If you like your sex on the more erotic side, these are definitely for you. That means that these Lions fuck and they fuck hard. That doesn't mean there isn’t a good dose of emotion wrapped up in there, as well as a nice dose of humour.
In book 1 we meet Alex O'Connell Prime of the Ridgeville werelion pride. Unbeknownst to him his mate is about to walk into his club and turn his life upside down. Maya who is only looking for a one-night stand gets a lot more than she bargains for when she can't resist the pull she feels to the sexy club owner.
In book 1.5 Alex and Maya are, for all intents and purposes, a happy couple ruling their pride but when Maya finds out she is pregnant her hormones send her into a bit of a tail spin that ends with her fucking her mate hard and fast.
In book 2 we get Carly’s story we met her in book 1 she is Maya’s best friend and a wererabbit to boot. She is trying to avoid the mating call of Neal a member of the pride but he pounces when she least expects it.
Overall I give this series of books 4 out of 5 If you like a short sexy read then each of these books are for you.
I also know that there are more books coming in this series and I look forward to reading them.
