Description from the publisher:
Alexis Parrish is very single. Sassy and smart, she's great at her job as a journalist, but it's never given her the time to find the right man--specifically, a human. So when she gets assigned to interview Max, a lion shifter, about the new dating app he's created, she can't believe her intense attraction to him. After all, humans and shifters don't date.

Max is used to causing trouble. He broke tradition by creating the dating app, Shifter, which humans and shifters alike can use to answer the call of the wild.

When Max challenges Alexis to give him a chance, she can't say no. A human like her has no business with this handsome alpha lion, but she can't resist his magnetism. Their chemistry is primal, their connection positively animalistic. After all, once you go shifter, you never go back.

But when a rogue shifter group against interspecies dating targets Alexis, Max will stop at nothing to protect her. It's more than his pride on the line; it's his mate.

Warning: If sassy, sexy, and carnal reads aren't your thing, this book isn't for you. It contains lots of dirty sex, violence, and witty banter.

MUST LOVE LIONS is the first book in the Shifter Date App series.  While each will stand alone, there is an over-arching theme that you make you want to read them all and in the order of release.

It’s not easy to write a sexy romance and provide a societal lesson in morality at the same time, but Alma Black has done it.  The world is full of prejudices.  In this world, it is a question of humans and shifters dating/marrying/loving.  Does going furry make a man less human?  Should our love be limited by a matter of a difference at birth? 

I love Alexis and Max.  Alexis’ growth throughout their relationship is amazing and organically believable.

It’s hard to believe this is Ms. Black’s first release.  I’m truly looking forward to what may come next.

Note:  while I was given this book as a gifted ARC, my opinions are my own and are given freely.
