So if you are looking for something so hot that it makes your toes curl, this is it!
Jenika Snow always writes the most delicious heroes.
After suffering from an eating disorder as a teenager, Tatum Weatherton slowly starts to grow comfortable in her curvier body as an adult. With her self-confidence shot, Tatum never had a meaningful relationship, but that all changes when she starts working for Leo Castill.
Leo enjoys women, and he has plenty of willing ones that work for him at the gentlemen's club he owns, The Lion and the Lamb. Everything changes when one luscious female, his mate, enters his club looking for a job. Every possessive instinct roars within him to take her, mark her, and claim her as his own.
When another lion shifter takes an interest in Tatum, Leo's lion demands to be let free and destroy the threat to his mate. But when Tatum is taken, Leo will stop at nothing to get her back, even when that means having the blood of his enemy on his hands.
We have Leo, our possessive, protective alpha male who has an unbelievably sweet side when he decides to woo Tatum. It doesn't hurt that he's a passionate lover and dirty talker as well ;)
Despite having survived a screwed up childhood, Tatum grew up to be a strong, beautiful woman. I love that she's a curvy woman as well! I absolutely adore Kiki, she is definitely the kind of best friend a girl would want!
The only downside I would say, would be that the emotional side to their relationship weren't as developed and touched upon as I would have liked.
