✱✱Book Review✱✱ The Lion, the Leopard, and the Wolf by E.L. March

The Lion, the Leopard, and the Wolf 
Enchanted Mountain Book 1
by E.L. March

Macalister Cameron's fantasy comes to life when she's snowbound in Fantasy Lodge with two incredible men vying for her attention.

"What if your romantic fantasy became possible? Two gorgeous hunks, one dark and surly, the other blond and bright, lived to please and fulfill you? What if you burned with passion and only these two alpha males could satisfy you? What if you found out they had a dangerous secret, and it included you?"

Momma Says: 2 stars⭐⭐

The Lion, the Leopard, and the Wolf is a very quick read, and that's about the best of it for me. I enjoy shifter romances, erotic or not, but they do require at least some world building, and this one is sorely lacking in that department. Then again, this one is mostly about the erotic, not the story, at least for me, so it doesn't leave a lot of room for world building. I'm not knocking erotic romances at all, in fact, I knew going in this one was not only erotica, but it was also a menage. The problem for me is when you don't connect with any of the characters, it's hard to become invested in their romance. There's a difference in being intimate and intimacy, and what this one boiled down to for me was sex without intimacy. Then, as if I didn't already have enough questions about this story, the author gives us a completely out of left field twist that could've been terrific with some context. That said, this book did have potential, and with some character and story development, along with some world building, it could've achieved that potential. As it stands, it's just erotica with very little context to base it on. This is the beginning of a series, but given my experience with this one, I don't think I'll be going any further.
