A Premier lion shifter, Hugh Landry dedicates his life to leading the Berk pride with strength and confidence. Hundreds of people depend on Hugh for safety, success, and happiness. And at over a century old, with more power than can be contained in one body, Hugh relies on a Siphon lion shifter to carry his excess force.
When the Siphon endangers himself and therefore the pride, Hugh must pay attention to the man who has been his silent shadow for a decade. What he learns surprises him, but what he feels astounds him even more.
Two lions, each born to serve, rely on one another to survive. After years by each other’s side, they’ll finally realize the depth of their potential, the joy in their passion, and a connection their kind has never known.
Rating: 4.5 Stars
A fan of paranormal romance and m/m reads, I was intrigued by 'Johnnie', so was happy to give it a chance. I am so pleased I did.
Listening to 'Johnnie' as opposed to reading it, I was so relieved when the narrator did a great job with tone and dialogue. A bad narrator can destroy a good book, but this one carried out the narrative very well.
Both the characters and the plot development grabbed and kept my attention. Johnnie's sweetness was endearing and Hugh's alpha voice and reactions were hot. Their relationship was fascinating and pleasurable to follow as the couple go through quite a journey together. Their evolving relationship provided smoking hot entertainment and pulled at my heartstrings too. Always a relief when we manage to get a great balance between romance and steamy sex.
An awesome 4.5 star read.
