Two lions, each born to serve, rely on one another to survive.
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.

He continued thrusting, enjoying the warm bodies, hungry grunts, and musky scents of the lion shifters around him, when suddenly, the pressure in his head and chest swelled and nearly knocked him unconscious. That was when he realized what was happening.

I liked Johnnie. It's trademark Cardeno C - sweet, sexy, easy reading with one protagonist who starts off somewhat annoying, one who is very sweet and wins over the oblivious one.

If you are in the mood for a shifter romance, read this book. If you are in the mood for a story with just the right amount of angst, happy moments and romance, read this book. If you are in the mood for an all-around fantastic read that will live with you long after you finished it, read this book! I loved every second I spent reading Johnnie and I'm not ashamed to admit I read it again the next day. Johnnie is definitely going to be a book this reader will read again and again. I loved it and I can't recommend it high enough.
And while to some extent, shifters are shifters, there are some unique aspects to these particular individuals in the world that Cardeno C. has created.
