Bree has just decided to give up trying to be a Shifter groupie when a lion Shifter slams into her truck and tells her to drive. Seamus is on the run from hunters, other Shifters, and who knows who else. All Bree knows is that he’s compelling, needs her help, and most intriguing of all, wears no Collar …

Seamus McGuire fears he’s gone crazy—feral—and become a killer. His only hope of getting away from the hunters and police on his tail is Bree, a human woman who not only knows a lot about Shifters but has great compassion for them.

Things are more complicated than they seem, however. Seamus is on a mission, to protect those in his care after the destruction of Kendrick’s compound of un-Collared Shifters. Seamus must keep it together and keep his charges hidden, but at the same time, he’s pulled to Bree as he’s never been pulled to a woman before. He needs to prove he’s innocent and not crazy before it’s too late for himself, Bree, and those he’s vowed to protect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It! <b>"Lion Eyes" by Jennifer Ashley. Book 7.25 in the Shifters Unbound series.</b> Oh! I really loved this novella! It is a great addition to the whole Shifters Unbound series. The main characters are Seamus, a lion shifter and Bree, a human woman who is a Shifter groupie. Seamus thinks he's going feral. He thinks he just killed two hunters and now two more are hunting him. To escape, he jumps into a truck about to leave a bar. The last thing he expected was to find the driver of the truck wearing a set of fake cat ears and have whiskers drawn on her face! But right now, that doesn't matter. They need to get to safety because he just put her life in danger as well. Bree is in a new town and trying to make new friends. Shifter friends specifically because she's a Shifter groupie. She loves anything to do with Shifters and knows all about them. But when one jumps into her truck and is basically kidnapping her? Well that's not exactly the way she wanted to meet a Shifter! Bree can see this guy needs her help. She can't just kick him out of her truck when hunters are after him. I love the romance between Seamus and Bree! There's a simmering buildup between the two of them that you don't usually see in novella length books. The story line is excellent with lots of excitement and a twist I didn't catch on to until the very end. It was great to see characters from the whole series make an appearance as well. The plot flowed really well and the descriptions throughout were vivid and detailed enough that you could really picture what was going on. Can't wait to read the next installment in this series!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too short I enjoy these shifter books. They are a nice light read and manage to have a consistent world view. ☺ It would be nice if they had a little more back story in each one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Entertaining NOTE: Lion Eyes debuted in the boxed set DARK AND DAMAGED (June 12, 2015) and was released on its’ own July 7, 2015. REVIEW: LION EYES is the latest novella in Jennifer Ashley’s adult SHIFTERS UNBOUND paranormal romance series. This is lion shifter Seamus McGuire, and shifter groupie Bree Fayette’s storyline. All of Jennifer’s Shifter Unbound storylines can be read as stand alones but for cohesion and backstory, I highly recommend reading the series in order as many characters and premises cross over between novels. Jennifer always gives the reader a hint as to what is to come including an introduction to new characters and potential new storylines. BACKGROUND: Jennifer Ashley’s shifters are persecuted and discriminated against by the humans but the humans have help in their attempts to bring the shifters under control using magic-infused collars and segregated towns. The Shifter history reveals that the Fae created the Shifters but in doing so left a little bit of magic behind. Told from dual third person perspectives LION EYES follows the hunt for a killer. When two humans are found ripped apart, a feral shifter is suspected of the killing. Enter Seamus McGuire, an uncollared and rogue lion shifter who doesn’t recall the events leading up to the murder; but a bloodied and wounded Seamus soon takes refuge with Shifter groupie Bree Fayette and the mating frenzy begins to take hold. With Seamus the number one suspect, the trackers from the Austin Shiftertown go on the hunt for the shifter they believe is responsible for the attack. The relationship and mating between Bree and Seamus is quick to develop but, in defense, the Shifter male knows when he has met his mate and, in this, Seamus tries to hold himself back knowing that to mate with Bree would put her in danger as Seamus is potentially a wanted man. The $ex scenes are limited, intimate and seductive. Many of the previous storyline characters play secondary and supporting roles throughout the novella for a familiar and cohesive blend between storyline installments-the inclusion allows for another glimpse into the lives of the couples, the children and the shifters we have come to love. The world building continues to focus on the Shiftertowns, the persecution of shifters, and their history: from collaring, Fae magic, and The Guardians who keep peace within the species. Jennifer Ashley writes a fascinating, entertaining and engaging paranormal series with a blend of several different shifter species who, in order to get along, must exist side by side and together, along with the humans who are determined to keep them under control.
