The Mating CallThe Mating Call by Brooke May

This book is a real page turner. I can’t wait to read the next books, I’m invested now. I felt a connection with the characters in the book and it’s a book I would reread in the future. It is a mountain lion shapeshifter book based in a small town in the mountains.

This book was a good one. I have read a few books by this author and I am glad I picked this one up. The main characters were awesome. This was a paranormal read and so I was excited to dive in. I loved the main characters and the female MC’s were fantastic. They were super strong and all around relatable and really made this book enjoyable! I am looking forward to reading more of this series in the future!
Happy Reading!

This was an enjoyable read from start to finish. This book included strong female characters, shape shifting, drama, and great character development. When I first saw this cover and read the synopsis I knew right away that I had to pick up this shape shifting adventure. While all of the characters where fantastic I really loved the drama and intensity that Cheyenne brought to this story and when the author brought Lane in the intensity between the two increased ten fold. While there is intensity, and drama between the two characters there is also romance, and such terrific character development that they really felt like a real life couple. But will Lane and Cheyenne get their happy ending? Will Cheyenne’s trama keep her heart sealed off? Can Cheyenne learn to trust and love her mate? You’ll have to read this fantastic shape shifter story to find out for yourself.

Cheyenne is a strong willed woman who sets out from her hometown to try finding her own way in San Francisco. Cheyenne is searching for her mate, someone she can wholeheartedly be herself with as a mountain lion shifter. One night after a date that didn’t work out, she finally feels the mating call pulling her in the direction of her home town. Who will be waiting for her when she reaches her childhood home?
I really enjoyed reading this book. The author did a great job sharing Cheyenne’s thoughts and feelings. And I loved how independent Cheyenne is going off to the big city and giving her dream career a chance. The characters in the book are a big family and love each other very much. I definitely connected with Cheyenne and the multitude of feelings she dealt with after meeting her mate. I can’t wait to learn more about Cheyenne’s siblings and the changes happening around their town in future books of this series.

The Mating Call (Long Claw Pride #1) by Brooke May

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by the author. The author creates a world we can escape to. The Mating Call is the first book in the Long Claw Pride Series.

Cheyenne is eighteen and ready to be on her own. She goes to Cali to find herself before the call comes. When it does come she is ready to go home. There she finds her mate already waiting for her at her house. The quote I chose for Cheyenne is: “And I’m not. I just want to find my own footing before I have to let nature take hold of me.”

Lane is busy working away when the call hits him hard. He drops everything and follows the pull towards his mate. The only thing he is missing is his court date. He finds his mate only to be taken from her. The quote I chose for Lane is: “No, I want to be able to tell our grandchildren someday it was me who put every log up, who nailed in almost all the nails to seal our home closed to keep the love in, and I want to be an example for our children, grandchildren, and all the generations to come how hard work can be so rewarding.”

Highly recommended for Paranormal Romance lovers.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cheyenne is a mountain lion shifter from Long Claw where she is surrounded by her family and beautiful, mountainous scenery, but all she wants to do is live her life on her terms and decide her own fate, so she leaves for the big city to build a career in radio. Lane is a mountain lion shifter from a broken family who has spent more time alone and wandering the countryside with only a horse as a companion and finding work where he can.

One day, ten years after she left Long Claw, Cheyenne is preparing for another radio show when all of a sudden she feels a painful internal tug to which takes her breath away and surprises her with its intensity. Meanwhile, Lane is also struck by a painful pull and he almost falls off of his horse because of it, but when he realises what it is, he reads straight off in the direction it points out.

As Cheyenne and Lane both heed the Mating Call and head towards Long Claw, they are both anxious about what the future holds and whether they will be attracted to the other or clash like two titans. Lane is the first to arrive and is immediately wondering about what he has let himself in for and how comfortable he already feels in this small town, while Cheyenne feels happier than she has in a long time and a sense of belonging she didn’t want to admit to. Their first meeting doesn’t go quite to plan and over a family meal, Lane begins to wonder why Cheyenne keeps her distance and practically runs as far from him as she can, but Cheyenne is worried that the past could be repeating itself.

Will Lane be able to break down the walls around Cheyenne’s heart, it will past experiences stop their future before it can even begin? This is a romance with ups and downs where pasts taint futures and collide with each other to bring secrets into the light, all while exploring the meaning of belonging and connecting with those around you.

I enjoy reading books about shifters. Although they are mostly about werewolves, so I found this book The Mating Call a refreshing change as it is about mountain lion shifters. It was a joy to journey along with Cheyenne and Lane as they discovered each other and fell in love. The author has created a nice world and I look forward to reading the next book.

As the first book in a bre series by an author I always I always enjoy I knew I had to read this. Especially as it is the first book I have read about mountain lion shifters, which I found to be a nice change from the norm. I was pulled straight into this story and the characters. I wanted to find out more about them as they both had such histories.
I thought thr story itself was well written. I engaged with the story and thought it was a well developed book. This is an author that never disappoints and this book is no exception.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was an enjoyable and engaging paranormal romance featuring mountain lion shifters. The lion shifters each have a fated mate who is the other half of their souls and they find each other when they least expect it. For Cheyenne and Lane it happens when Cheyenne feels the mating call which draws her home to Long Claw. Meanwhile, Lane also feels the call and heads to Long Claw determined to prove himself to his mate. However, Lane finds that Cheyenne has reservations due to her past that may affect their future together. I loved the characters in this story, and felt immersed within the ‘Long Claw Pride’. The small mountain town setting was really brought to life by the descriptive narrative and the storyline flowed well. The chemistry between Cheyenne and Lane came across and I was cheering them on hoping they would get their HEA. I look forward to future books in this new series by Brooke May.
