Abby Wade has a dangerous secret.

Two months ago, she disobeyed an order, but instead of kicking her out of the Pride, Jace offered her a job. Since then, she’s been battling a completely inappropriate crush on the young, hot Alpha. But when accepting his job offer seems like the only way to keep her skeletons safely in their closet, Abby doesn’t hesitate.

Jace Hammond has a big problem.

A rogue is slaughtering humans in his territory, and he must eliminate the threat before the entire shifter species is exposed. There could not be a worse time for Abby to accept a job he only offered as a boost to her confidence. Abby is smart, beautiful, and resilient—more than enough to distract any man from the mission. Unfortunately, she may just be the worst enforcer ever to hold the title.

As they hunt the killer, Abby’s secret becomes a threat to Jace’s authority and to her own life. But the real danger is the grip she has on his twice-shy heart.

my thoughts

I am loving the Wildcat world. In Lions Share we follow Abby and Jace and for those familiar with Rachel Vincent’s Shifter series, you’ll already know Jace Hammond very well and you’ll be just as eager to see how he’s coping after the ending of the Shifter series. Abby is fierce and independent. She’s the type of girl that will do what needs to be done regardless of the consequences. She can be reckless at times and occasionally she doesn’t think things through which can come back and bite her in the butt but its what makes her so relatable. Jace, my oh my, where do I begin. I adore him. He’s an Alpha and smoking hot and wants things to work with him and Abby. Watching him struggle through their relationship really sucks you in.

Now, if you haven’t read the Shifter series, you may be left hanging a bit when it comes to secondary characters that we’d seen in earlier books as well as with some of the world-building. I feel like you need to read the Shifter books to have a solid understanding of the governing system in the book and to know why tabbies are so key to it all. I also wonder if new readers will fall as hard for Jace as I did having falling for him before and throughout multiple books. This was almost like an insta-love which normally wouldn’t be my thing but having known Jace already, I was okay with Abby falling so hard for him.

One one pet peeve of mine in the book is Abby’s refusal to confide in Jace or anyone else for that matter regarding her problems. She irrationally thinks she can fix everything and I’m not sure why. It gets frustrating because she continues to mess up which causes issues for her and Jace’s relationship. That said, it didn’t turn me against the book. That could be because I’m a die hard shifter fan or it could be because Rachel Vincent wrote one heck of a good book. Either way I’m okay with it. I loved reading the book and I would happily re-read it again. I’m curious and skeptical to see how the Wildcat series progresses since it looks like each book will be a new couple and I feel like I’m not done with Jace and Abby but I’m optimistic that I’ll love it all.
