Publisher's Summary

In the Ocelot Kingdom, feline shifters rule, and humans are nothing.  

As a princess, you’d think I lived a blessed life. But like all second-born children of shifter couples, I am a lowly human. The most I can hope for is that when my older sister takes the throne, she’ll consider me unimportant enough to let me marry for love. 

First, I have to get her to the throne. 

After a devastating betrayal by our father, I vow to get Camila the crown - now. To become queen, she must collect an amulet that contains secrets to the mating rituals of each feline clan. I’ll do anything to help my fragile sister gain the first amulet, even if it means seducing Lord Balam, a jaguar noble who's as terrifying as he is irresistible. 

To my surprise, something inside me awakens at his rough treatment and dirty talk. When he introduces me to pleasures beyond my wildest imagination, I am drawn into the secret world of shifters where every man wears two faces and a vulnerable human body like mine is a liability. 

As we navigate the hidden dangers of the feline world, I must decide how much I’ll give to get my sister to the throne. Because the next amulet may cost not just my body, but my very soul.

eww, Eww, EWW!

Okay, lemme get this right. The lead female character's FIRST boyfriend openly has sex with random women. But she's good with that.

Okayy...

She meets her NEXT boyfriend while he's having sex with another woman.

Huh?

So far, looks like girlfriend needs a quick trip to the free clinic. Nothing redeeming or binge-worthy about these characters, who I assume the author wants us to fall in love with.

Topping all THAT off, she admittedly drugs a guy into needing sexual release, which turns into her being brutally raped for hours. And her response is, "It's okay. Don't worry about it."

Wah???

I'm not getting the next one. And I'm curious as to the fate of this review, since only 22 reviews are posted, and they're all stellar. This is too similar to the abundance of other reverse harem/shifter plots out there, and you can pretty much see the epilogue (turns out, girl is more than just human and super-unique and solves everyone's problems, she and her mates fit together like the pieces of the key thingy they have to collect, sister is thrown to the side, father dies) from here. Alexa B. Jones is going on my "don't bother" list.

Yeah, I'm good. I'll give the required star to Jake and Bridgette Bordeaux, who's determined attempts at some of those accents were hilarious.

Broken princess

Holy Molly, this book started off so good, and it just kept getting better. But I'm still curious 🤔 about Itzel and what she is. Is she something special? And is Lord Balam in love with her and is she with him But about shadow.

Hot and heavy

While there are a lot of triggers in this book, it is written very well. There are so many questions and underlying issues that need to be solved. I can’t wait to see what happens next for the sisters.

Good enough to keep me listening

I listened to the audio version of this book, but that was not an available edition.
I had a hard time getting into this story. Itzel is an Ocelot princess but since she was a second child she is human. The first-born daughter is Camila who will inherit the leadership of the Ocelot kingdom. First, though, she must collect amulets from each cat shifter nation. These amulets will come together to show her who her mate will be. There are really no rules as to how to obtain the amulets, though some of them may require certain things in order to open them.

Camille is a spoiled, selfish girl who is also more than a bit pitiful. She is whiny most of the time and has an exaggerated opinion of herself all of the time. If you check the dictionary under manipulative you will likely find her picture. Itzel, on the other hand, is a little wild and very dedicated to helping her sister gain the crown. Their father has managed to alienate all the other shifter clans and this is going to make getting the amulets even more difficult. I tried to like Itzel, but she changes her mind more than a man changes TV channels. She is also blind to her sister's manipulations and this makes me want to slap her.

The chance to get the first amulet comes when a delegation from the jaguar nation visits the Ocelot kingdom. The shaman of the tribe is the keeper of their amulet and it falls to Itzel to try to get it for her sister.

I won't ruin the story for you. Rest assured that there is lots of sex and Itzel can't make her mind up about who all she wants to have that with either. Think hormonal teenage boy. I got a free copy of this book from StoryOrigin. My review is voluntary.

Broken Princess

I really enjoyed Itzel, she is feisty, unapologetic and loyal to those she loves and cares about. Unfortunately for her she let's her sister walk all over her (in my opinion anyway). But she is doing what she thinks she needs to do to protect her. At first I wanted to smack some sense into Balam, but he grew on me. I like the storyline and am curious as to where this goes from here.
I read and listened to the audiobook and both narrators are amazing as always.

Action-packed, some steam, challenging characters

A story about Itzel, second daughter, a non-shifter and as such, second-class citizen in the Ocelet Nation where first-born sister Camila, a shifter, is in line to rule. Itzel devises to seduce another head of state to obtain amulets on behalf of her sister, the holding of which would put Camila on the path to rule, and ideally fairly unlike the reigning King, their father.

The main characters did not hold much appeal; the heroine, while altruistic, too often yielded to her plaintive, and in my view, manipulative sister. Itzel’s blindly giving nature didn’t make the story credible and detracted from my enjoyment. Also, the heroes while likable were not particularly noteworthy.

Pace was good, not slow, nice flow of events. Lots of action and great world building. Only a bit of “on screen” steam but what was described was hot. The story contained some dark themes, but the overall plot was not dark. I liked the why-chose nature of the romance with the gradual introduction of Itzel's partners.

Narration Performance
The voice actress, who performed primarily, demonstrated a great amount of range, shifting (pun intended) from character to character, female or male, and changing accents. The (male) voice actor’s performance of the male characters was good, accent slightly exaggerated. Neither acting rendition elevated the story sufficiently to captivate me, that I could lose myself in the experience. Both narrators' deliveries were too fast.

Overall, while I could appreciate some aspects of this romance -- the world building, the variety of shifters and why-choose, and the action, this tale did not strike a cord for me for the main characters.

Dark, seductive and addictive

This is a great reverse harem, dark paranormal romance that hooks you in from the very start. Itzel is the second child of the Ocelot Nation's king and as such, she is a shifter princess who can not shift. She is human, and in the Ocelot society humans are second class citizens. Her sister, Camila, is destined to become queen and must find her mate by first visiting all the shifter kingdoms and securing their mating amulets. The cruelty of her father pushes Itzel into helping with Camila with her quest, and she is thrust into a sensual, danger filled world the likes of which Itzel could never have imagined.
This book was a surprise, it is dark, seductive and addictive and the narrator captured the characters beautifully. I liked the concept of environmental disasters leading to the shifters taking over, how each shifter nation is different, and that not all of them see humans as second class. It is a fast-moving story that has more to it than just the erotica. It has characters that change as the book progresses, elements of romance, politics, action, danger, and some dark, sexual violence that some may find triggering. The men in the story have enough individuality and varying dynamics with Itzel to keep them from all feeling the same and I also liked that her harem will be established throughout the series and is not an already established group. Itzel is fierce, loyal, and determined to get her sister on the throne, no matter the cost to herself.  She is smart and strong and just keeps moving forward, even when she encounters awful things. It will be interesting to see what happens next in this story

Loved it

Itzel is the 2nd born daughter to the Ocelot king so that makes her human and her father looks down on her all the time . She will do anything for her sister the future queen Camilla and getting her on the throne is her main priority . Love Itzel and her chemistry with Lord Balam is off the charts I can’t wait for book 2 . Bridget and Jake narrate this book perfectly as usual .
