Johnnie by Cardeno C


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.


This is one of my all time favorite shifter romance books. You know the book that you keep going back to time and time again because it gives you the warm and fuzzes?  well this is that one for me. So this book is about shifters big surprise there right? I LOVE SHIFTERS! But there is a little twist to the whole insta-love, lust thing that shifter romance books usually have. In this book we have a premier lion named Hugh he is the one who takes care of the den. He is able to live forever and because he is able to live forever he has a lot of power. He cant harnesses all his power on his own so he needs a Siphon lion. In comes Johnnie he is a siphon that can take in Hughes excess power.

Johnnie is a younger lion and has been in love with Hugh for years.  Feeling neglected by Hugh, Johnnie tries to take his life. If johnnie dies Hugh dies, If Hugh dies the den fails. Hugh felt like Johnnies attempted suicide was an attack on his pride.

Hugh decides to keep and eye on Johnnie and  finds that he likes him and regrets not getting to know him better sooner. The premier has had his head in the sand for A LONG time. Lions for some reason think of sex as a bodily fluid so pretty much all they do is have sex.

Sex was a tried and true method of bonding and unity building as well as a good way for a premier to release his high levels of semen, so it was a regular part of Hughes visits with his pride members. He’d rutted on the rug in this dens living room more time then he could count.

He wasn’t expecting sweet innocent Johnnie, who he constantly ignored. Things with Johnnie were different including feelings and sex.

“Lord, “he sighed. “I want to be worthy of what you see in me,”.

This book is so sweet its like cavity sweet. It has it all shifters, virgin, submissive male and protective partner. It is the best shifter romance ever. Johnnie is part of a series, however I have been waiting quite awhile for another one to come out.   If I were you just pretend its a stand alone. Then if and when a second one comes out it will be like its Christmas. Until Next Time.
