Abby Wade has a dangerous secret.
Two months ago, she disobeyed an order, but instead of kicking her out of the Pride, Jace offered her a job. Since then, she’s been battling a completely inappropriate crush on the young, hot Alpha. But when accepting his job offer seems like the only way to keep her skeletons safely in their closet, Abby doesn’t hesitate.
Jace Hammond has a big problem.
A rogue is slaughtering humans in his territory, and he must eliminate the threat before the entire shifter species is exposed. There could not be a worse time for Abby to accept a job he only offered as a boost to her confidence. Abby is smart, beautiful, and resilient—more than enough to distract any man from the mission. Unfortunately, she may just be the worst enforcer ever to hold the title.
As they hunt the killer, Abby’s secret becomes a threat to Jace’s authority and to her own life. But the real danger is the grip she has on his twice-shy heart.

I give this an 4.5 Cat's Tails Up, I love that Rachel dove back into the werecat's world it been so long! I'm glad that as a reader we got to learn more about Abby and see how she's been doing since Stray came out.
MEOW . . . MEOW . . . MEOWOkay everyone that follows me on goodread and twitter and all other things, knows that I'm a HUGE Rachel Vincent fan. Her shifters series were my first love of urban fantasy and basically first adult novel believe it or not.
I have always hope that Rachel would dive back into this world but she has always said no because SHE believes that she was done with it but thanks to some of her authors friends telling her she should write that world again, she took a big leap in getting back into this world.
Lion's Share has a double POV, it portray Abby Wade and Jace Hammond. Lion's Share shows their journey together but it also show the growth (a lot of Growth) between the two characters that we're familiar with, Jace is NOW an alpha and Abby is a tabby with an attitude just like her cousin Faythe only more stubborn.
When Abby is needed home (kind of sounds familiar right?) she is hesitant on returning home . . . WHY? Because she's has a BIG BIG secret. But right now Abby has to deal with the threats of humans that are hunting specifically for shifters. The worst part of it was that both Abby and Jace knew who they were dealing with, it was one of Jace's biggest concern after the horrid camping trip that Abby was a target of just a semester ago.
I like this new idea of where its not necessary strays or rouges that were a problem but HUMANS. I know there was a Pride law where you can't exposure yourself as a Cat to humans. You also better DARE NOT infected anyone either which sadly has happen before..Lion's Share has a dangerous game of Hunter Vs Prey.
Romance between Jace and Abby, I know when I read Hunt that there was something between them but I thought it might have been the HUGE age difference between them that drove the wedge between them. But there was actually more things added to the wedge. Abby had suffered a terrible ordeal in Stray that basically left her fragile and scared.
I was actually stunned that Abby current relationship status was ENGAGED, I had no idea when that happened and don't get me wrong Brian seems nice enough but you can clearly tell that there was no fire. In fact I'm not even sure what made either one of them decide to become engaged because there was no real interlude to that story. But I'm sure it would have been boring . . . but not boring in making the book bad I mean boring as it doesn't need to be in the book.
Now Jace knows Abby, he knows when to offer her comfort and when it's okay to touch her because of what happen to her in Stray. What these two develop in a short amount of time wasn't really like "Passion" it was more along the lines of the two being "riveting" towards one another. With that they both start developing feelings they never thought they would have and now they have to learn how to express those feelings.
Throughout the book, Abby works hard on trying to be an enforcer under Jace but it's clear that she has her own agenda, one that could cost her very claws. The human hunters also have their own agenda, and they're after the most precious things that makes a pride and what's keeps a pride going . . . TABBIES.
Now let's talk about the old characters because you know I love them to death and have been wondering what has been new to them. The Lazy S has a lot going on, with kids running around and a teenage Kaci and Faythe as Alpha of her own Pride with Marc by her side as husband, father and co-alpha. Everything coming to the Lazy S is new and different.
Towards the ending of the book, after the good guys defeat the bad guys the Council must now debate on the actions that Abby committed. Like I said earlier that this GIANT secret she had harbor for a few months now could and would get her DECLAWED. However since it is a spoilers I'm not telling you what it is so SORRY! Then Jace turns around and does something as well! Just to protect Abby, the ending part was a really shocker to me because I would have never seen it coming but some of you might see it coming.
I can't wait for Lion's Den to come out and read the next couples that we haven't met yet.
