🐾 Synopsis 🐾

Tarian Alpha by TS JoyceThe Tarian Pride is right in the middle of a historical power-shift. Ronin Alder is taking over as the New Tarian Alpha, but the entire Pride of lion shifters needs to be completely rehabilitated. Back in the Pride after years hating it, his job is to push the monsters here to a new future, one where they will stop warring with every shifter Crew in existence. But when he mans a rescue mission and finds a hurt woman in the woods, he had no choice but to save her…or kidnap her. And when he learns her story, and recognizes just who, and what, she is, his entire future as Alpha of the New Tarians takes a new direction. His life had been laid out before him, but now he wants so much more. He wants Emerald.

Emerald Lawson is a descendant of one of the original Tarians, her bloodline highly coveted by the Old Tarian Alpha, Cassius. He’s put her between a rock and a hard place and turned her entire life upside down. She’s accepted her fate on the throne of the Old Tarians until she stumbles upon a man on a mission in the woods. When she’s kidnapped by the New Tarian Alpha, one day with Ronin changes her life forever. How can she go back to living in a cage after he’s set her free? She’s a submissive lioness who doesn’t belong, but Ronin challenges Emerald to be something she’s never been before—fearless. And as a new uprising begins, she will find herself at the helm of a destiny that could change the entire future of the Tarian Pride.

Content Warning: Explicit love scenes, naughty language, and piles of sexy shifter secrets. Intended for mature audiences.

🐾 Review 🐾

It didn’t matter how broken a person became. If they got pushed hard enough, that relentless pressure would create a window of opportunity. A chance to grow. To change. To become stronger. To become unbreakable.

I've got tons of this author's books on my TBR and sitting on my kindle and now that I've finally taken the plunge, I can finally understand what all the fuss is about. Ronin was almost killed by the council when he went against them for what they had done to his best friend. Betrayed by his Pride, orphaned and alone, he found a new family and a new hope for the future. Back as Alpha to the New Tarian Pride, they're at war with the Old Tarian Pride and nothing is ever easy when at war. Especially when he finds his old childhood friend, Emerald, caught in the middle. Emerald and her family had run from the old pride when they got stuck in the old ways, turning into uncontrollable beasts ruled by their bloodlust and power. However, her bloodline were highly sought after by the old pride and when they kidnapped her father, she had no choice but to tie herself to an Alpha who had absolutely no respect for women or the title he held. Lucky for her, Ronin was there and a new way of life was on the horizon.

The assault scenes were pretty graphic. I didn't expect to see so much violence towards the women.

Women were queens. Queens. Male lions had it all wrong. The boys weren’t important. They were weapons, but females were the intelligence. The ones who softened hard hearts and made boys salvageable.

In my culture, Rastafari, lionesses hold all the power and it was hard to picture them so utterly submissive and oppressed. However, I love how the author showed their development from almost weak, simpering lambs to fierce, lethal lions who finally saw their worth and their strength. I'm still waiting on the explicit sex scenes the author warned us all about. There were a lot of hints for plenty of sexy times, but it came off as pretty tame. I think that would be my only major complaint about this book. Don't tell me it's going to be hella hot and give me barely lukewarm petting.

Step one: Find Ronin.
Step two: Save Ronin.
Step three: Bone Ronin.
Step Four: Have, like, seven baby Ronins.
Step Five: —
