A sassy, curvy human woman and a huge, grumpy, alpha Kodiak shifter argue, bite, shoot, boss, and battle their way as an unknown and dangerous enemy plots nearby.
Each time I pick up a book by this author, it is ‘guarantee- take it to the bank’ fun and excitement and I think this was my favorite of her stories that I’ve read so far. There was the usual sassy wit, steamy attraction, and adorable characters with their human-like flaws along with a villain that was twitching just out of sight, but kept things tense.
I laughed many times as the two main characters developed a relationship that took both of them by surprise.
[quote]“What are you doing?” she asked.
I don’t know. Instinct not logic currently dictated his actions. But he didn’t admit this aloud.
“Do you always ask so many questions?”
“Only when I’m trying to understand what’s going on.”
“Isn’t it obvious?”
Confusion clouded her gaze. “No.”
Did she not sense the attraction between them? Of course she didn’t. She was a simple human. She couldn’t know how his bear chuffed at her nearness. How the scent of her aroused him. How he wanted to lay claim to her body. What the (deuce) is wrong with me?
Apparently, his grandmother wondered the same thing. “Reid Alexander Carver, what are you doing manhandling our guest?”
Oops, caught harboring naughty thoughts and jolted back to sanity. What am I doing?

This is the first of a new shifter series that gets to things quickly explaining a bit of the background as it goes with a deftness that gives just enough to keep the reader on par with more concentration given to the plot, characters and romance development. Aside from the main characters, several other interesting personalities were introduced in this story setting up for more people to get their stories in this series. The conflict rises to an exciting climax, but still is left open enough to continue through the series. I am looking forward to what comes next.
So, if you are interested in scorching yet light paranormal romance, I would recommend this series.
My thanks to the author for providing a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
