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.

“Hugh?” said Mara Terrence, the shifter who’d been writhing beneath him. “What’s wrong?”

“What’s wrong with him?” Mara cried as…
The journey that these two men take towards understanding each other is beautifully written. The characters are well fleshed out and the dialog flows smoothly from one page to the next.
Johnnie was an easy story to listen to and held my attention. It offered a bit of a twist on the shifter world adding in the Siphon and the men grow to balance each other out quite well. Recommended for a sweet shifter love story.
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.
This was highly enjoyable to listen to
