Summary

Meet Callista Orson. All she wants is to be a good detective. 

But being a female, and a shifter, makes the job harder than it should. It doesn't help that every time she tries to prove herself, she falls flat - usually on her ass. 

And not to mention...her dad's the Chief of Police. 

This small-town police department is a family affair. Her sisters, Carmen, Cassidy, Charlotte, and Dakota, all don a badge and gun too. 

With no brothers, her dad taught them everything he knew about being a cop. So naturally, the girls wanted to follow in his footsteps. 

Will Callista prove there is more to her than being just another pretty face? Callista and her sisters will work hard to prove themselves as cops and kick a little ass....

Oh, and fall in love along the way. 

Because what kind of life would it be without a little romance and heat?!

Mature listener warning: This book contains a lot of panty-dropping sexiness! There is raw sexual language (aka dirty talk), a little violence, and tons of heat! It is intended for listeners 18+ and fans of the naughty stuff. If that's you, then be sure to check out all of LC Taylor's books!

Good characters

This book has a no nonsense, straight forward storyline. It’s refreshing to listen to a book that doesn’t fill pages/minutes just to fill it out. Great narration from Holly.

Kickass MC

I received a free audio copy of this book directly from the author for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this book, Callista is a sassy kickass woman although ends up on her butt a fair few times in rather interesting situations. I really enjoyed her relationships with her family was interesting dynamic with sisters rather than a family of brothers being the shifters as it often is. There’s plenty of mystery in this book too and ends on a cliffhanger. If anything I wished it was a bit longer!

Enjoyable

This was by far and away a very enjoyable story. The characters were interesting there was a little humour and most enjoyably plenty of heat and chemistry. It also had a really strong story line that I found very entertaining

Awesome!

Lipstick & Lead is a fantastic listen with loads of suspense, mystery, thrill, and drama. It's well-plotted and well-paced with intriguing characters; I was wholly entertained. Holly Holt did an excellent job with the narration and the character's voices, bringing the story to life. I definitely enjoyed this audiobook and will recommend it. I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook, and my unbiased review is voluntarily given.

Great Short Read!

This was an excellent book, with lots of mystery, excitement, sexy shifters and of course hot sexy romance. This does end in a cliffhanger and its a doozy, but you wont want to miss this book it was very well written and definitely worth the listen. the narrator did a great job of portraying each character, her voice was one you want to listen to and hear more of. all in all this book is a must listen / read, I can't wait to find out what happens next!

Female shifters in blue.... love it!

I love the concept of strong women in positions of strength. Calista is definitely such a woman. She is a funny, slightly clutsy, dedicated cop. She meets a fireman on the job and experiences that flash of shifter connection. Of course she denies it but Dawson persists.

I think what I really enjoyed was the fact that the romance took second place to the action in the story. One of Calista's sisters, another policewoman, goes missing The case and the issues around it take precedence over the romance, which is actually fairly uncomplicated. And while the romance is tied neatly in a bow, the plot only thickens and the story ends on a cliffhanger. I cannot wait to find out what happens next!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Strong and Hot

Love a kick butt heroine! In this series, the entire group of sisters kicks butt and take names. I loved that the hero was a different type of shifter and how powerful he was. Yum. Some great steamy scenes and lots of action. I am looking forward to reading more in this series. I received this audiobook by my request in exchange for an honest review from Audiobook Boom.

Down and dirty

To the bemusement of Calista‘s family she’s always getting down and dirty whether it’s with her job or with Dawson the new fire fighter at least that’s what she wants to get down and dirty to the bemused family of Calista she always gets down and dirty wethor it’s at her job as a detective where she serves under her father or with the new paramedic Dawson at least she wants to get down and dirty with Dawson. Until then she will keep breaking the rules and making her own and this greatly crafted book. Her and her bear or raring to go her bear usually is more raring than she is.

Good story

I enjoyed the story, the plot, and the characters. I did not enjoy the narrator, she enunciated things too forcefully and made several characters too ditzy for the story. There were also a few lines read twice in a row. Otherwise, great!

good short book

This book was super funny right off the bat even my husband was laughing. It was a pretty good story. The only issue I had is some of the sentences were repeated twice in a row it just needs some better editing

Good story bad narrator

I did enjoy the story but had a hard time listening to the narrator. This should have been a quick listen for me but I had to stop several times because of narrator. She simply read the story and for me a good narrator bring the story to life. That did not happen.
