My introduction to Eve Langlais was through her Cyborg Series and this was my first reading of her books beyond that.  I am so glad that her particular blend of humor, passion and a touch of danger translated into her other books.  This was a lighter paranormal shifter read which may not appeal to everyone, but I found it a nice satisfying change from my usual fare.

Viktor and his team of top military trained shifters breaks into a hidden lab facility run by a villain they know as the Mastermind.  It is quite the coup between getting intact data, lab workers, and rescuing victims who have been experimented on by the Mastermind and the scientists.  The importance of this particular rescue mission comes home to Viktor pretty quick when it is to him that one of the victims clings for help and support.  Oddly enough, Viktor, the cranky older Crocodile shifter, finds himself willing enough to let the pretty red-head cling to him in her fear of the unknown.

Project, the longest remaining experiment in the facility cannot remember a time outside of the lab and the cage she lives in.  The idea of the big wide world was a myth or fairy tale to her told by the other captives that were brought in and eventually didn’t make it.  When the rescuer tries to get her out, she panics.  Eventually, she learns to trust Viktor her rescuer, but is terrified to be parted from him.

With time, Viktor helps Project or Renee as he has dubbed her learn to accept her new freedom.  In the meantime, he finds himself fighting his strong attraction to her and for her.  He tells himself many things to prove that starting anything with Renee is not a good idea, but Renee has other plans.

Meanwhile, the Mastermind is alive, well and scheming with new plans that are a danger to all of the Furry United Coalition, but particularly Renee.  It is this danger that helps clarify how Viktor and Renee really feel about each other and reveal a big surprise about Renee.  Viktor and Renee were great together and I enjoyed their back and forth fun dialogue and thoughts.

The plot focused on the romance of Viktor and Renee with teaser moments interspersed with some steamier ones.  I enjoyed following along as Renee plotted to get Viktor and he put up barriers to keep her away even when he weakened behind his own barriers.  The villain is just plain over the top fun down to the ‘muahahaha’ laugh, but the villain’s presence did add the excitement and bit of danger to the story.

This is the third story in the series and I was still able to follow along just fine.  The characters from the previous stories are present and I enjoyed them so much that I plan to go back and read the earlier books.

I can recommend this story and the series to those who enjoy light and humorous with a dash of passion in their shifter romances.

About Eve Langlais

~ New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

Hello, my name is Eve and I am a Canadian author who loves to write hot romance, usually with werewolves, cyborgs or aliens.

I should warn you that I possess a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing. I enjoy strong alpha males, and shifters. Lots of big, overprotective shifters. I am also extremely partial to aliens, the kind who like to abduct humans and then drive them insane…with pleasure. Do you like something a little darker? Then check out my cyborgs whose battle with humanity have captivated readers worldwide.

I love to write, and while I don’t always know what my mind is going to come up with next, I can promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because I love a happily ever after.

Thanks so much for coming by and checking me out. If you’d like to know more, read some excerpts or find out what’s coming next, then please visit me at http://www.EveLanglais.com

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.
