Review: When A Beta Roars (A Lion’s Pride #2) by Eve Langlais

Hayder has met his mate. Just one problem. She's allergic to cats.

How degrading. Stuck babysitting a woman because his alpha said so. As Pride Beta, he has better things to do with his time, like washing his impressive mane, hunting down thugs for fun, and chasing tail--sometimes his own if his lion is feeling playful.

But his babysitting job takes an unexpected turn when the woman he's assigned guard duty over turns out to be his mate.

A female threatened by an outside wolf pack.

A woman he wants to call his own.

A mate who doesn't fall for his charm.

Usually Beta's leave the roaring to the Pride's alpha, but in this case given his level of frustration, he might have to make an exception. And if anyone doesn't like it, they can kiss his furry tail.

Oh my! Eve Langlais has done it again with When A Beta Roars. This second entry into the A Lion’s Pride had me laughing from the very beginning. Hayder is quite the hoot and quite the ladies man. He’s unfortunately tasked with babysitting a woman, which he thinks is way below his lofty Beta status. Arabella is a widowed wolf. Abused and beaten down by her previous mate, suddenly she a hot commodity by the members of her pack. Maybe it has something to do with her now being rich, and whomever gets her not only gets to be Alpha but they get her buckets of money as well. A wolf and a lion as mates is a pretty funny thought but when you throw into the mix that she’s allergic to cats, HILARIOUS! Poor Hayder, she’s sneezing all over him all the time. *Snickers!* However, he’s willing to put up with it and all her timidness because with one look he knew his bachelor and catting around days were over. Instant mate connection!

Between all her sneezing and constant threat of being snatched away by greedy wolves, there’s a entertaining story. Big mighty Beta and the whipped wolf and how they change each other. She learns to be stronger, standing up for herself and him…okay all he really does is put his catting days behind him. They have a few escapades along the way: dinner, kidnapping while Hayder proves he’s quite the gentleman (Purr! Oh wait, lions don’t purr!) as he’s willing to wait Arabella to decide she wants him. That translates into not a whole lot of sex in this one (sad meow). However, they do get on to the dirty deed and when they do, it’s delicious! And the HEA…RAWR!!

The best part of any story is the characters and once again I got to experience the lionesses in the pride which provide some of the funniest moments for me. They sure know how to keep the males in their place. That is all but one; Leo the Omega. He’s actually turned out to be my favorite character in the series and I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am to see he gets his own book. Happy meow!

Whenever I read a sad book that turns me into an emotional wreck, I know I can always turn to one of Eve Langlais’ books to perk me right up. Her stories always get me laughing and have the funniest characters. The situations they find themselves in always leave me smiling. Anyone wanting something light and entertaining to read needs to be reading When a Beta Roars.
