Summary from Goodreads: 
Being a teenager is hard enough, but when your dad is an Alpha werelion it complicates matters even more. Victoria doesn’t feel like she fully fits in anywhere and things become more unsteady when she meets the new werelion in her dad’s pride, Brandon. Is there a way she can alter her genes to gain the ability to shift, or will she learn to accept who she is?

My Review: 
Daughter of Lions is one of the stories that you don’t want to end. When you get to the last page it leaves you feeling happy about the ending but sad that you finished reading. I highly recommend reading this book by one of my favorite authors.

Victoria is a teenager who is a cheerleader with lots of friends and is pretty popular. There is just one thing that her friends don’t know about her. She is a hybrid werelion and her father if the alpha werelion of his pride. Victoria has never really felt part of either life though. She is not fully a human or a werelion. She has super strength, can run really fast and has the ability to heal quickly. But she cannot shift.

Victoria is excited to visit her dad for spring break and see her friends in the pride. When her dad shows up to pick her up he has Brandon with him. Brandon is this totally hot werelion that will turn Victoria’s world upside down. Spring break is over before she knows it but her dad has a surprise for her. Brandon is going to be going back with Victoria and going to finish out the school year at her school and protect her. During the two months they become close friends with a little romance here and there. Victoria or as Brandon calls her Tori, is falling fast for Brandon. The only problem though is Brandon doesn’t know if he wants a mate who is a non lioness.

Not long after they return to her dad’s house for the Summer something unexpected happens and causes Victoria to move permanently with her dad and the pride. Things start to get real interesting after this. Michael, a childhood friend and werelion comes back into Victoria’s life and causes a bit of a love triangle. Then there is Bob, a crazy werewolf that is obsessed with Victoria and wants her all for himself. His pride of werewolves wants to start a war with the werelions and will use Victoria as bait to get it started.

I hope that I haven’t revealed too much of the story already. I would love to keep on gushing about what happens but I am going to recommend that you read this book. There is so much more to it and it is SO GOOD. I would give it more than five stars if it were possible. I fell in love with the story and of course Brandon. It is on my favorites lists now. It seems like a stand alone book but I am really hoping that there is going to be a sequel. I want more stories to come from this amazing book. This e-arc was provided to me for review.
