Andrea McNeilly's job as a government agent is not asking questions, but then a routine assignment turns into a botched assassination of a Master Vampire's human servant. Answers become a priority. Her search to discover the truth is riddled with obstacles, the largest being an oversized Werewolf who resembles a Norse god. Andy can't afford the distraction he offers, because if she fails, she faces eternal enslavement.
Wick's job is to monitor Andy, but he prefers more intimate activities, none of them G-Rated. His choices, however, are often not his own. His ability to help Andy is limited by his bond to the Master Vampire.
Facing many trials and challenges along her path to redemption, Andy learns the value of her freedom might be set too high.

His hand rested on my hip. Heavy and large, it made me aware of the heat emanating from his body through the sheets.
He’d shaken me awake.
I eyed him suspiciously. What was he doing in my bed?
“Why Grandma, what big hands you have.” When fear clung to me, like it did now, I found it best to bluff nonchalance. Fake it till you make it. I’d heard the slogan once on a TV show involving models.
“Better to hold you with, my dear,” he said, surprising me. I didn’t think he would get the reference.
Then again, the wolf story was based on a true Werewolf. He should know it.
The nightmare still clung to me like a silk bath robe after a shower. Those eyes haunted my sleep. If I closed my eyes again, I’d see them, crystal clear, as if they were real. Transported back to the hell I tried to forget, I looked into Wick’s deep brown safe eyes, dark portals in the dim light, and relaxed. Tension flowed from my body. Wick’s white teeth flashed in the dark in response.
“What big teeth you have.” I chuckled.
Wick’s grin grew. “I’m not sure you’re ready for me to reply to that.”

As soon as I seen this title I knew that I had to read it. I was right and all of you who like shifters had better put it on your list now. You won't want to miss this one either.
Andy is an anomoly. She is a carus. She doesn't know what this title means. She doesn't know who her parents were. Her adoptive parents are dead. She only knows that she has multiple forms that she can take and that is not normal. It is a secret that she guards. It comes in handy in her line of work.
Andy has attitude, snark, sass, and mad skills. She has been through a horrific ordeal that still haunts her.
When she gets an assignment that doesn't feel quite right, her world comes tumbling down around her and then some. Her lonely, barely there existence is no longer available because she garnered the attention of a master vampire when she attempted to off his servant. In doing that she also brought the notice of the werewolves that answer to him. Included in this pack of werewolves is one hot and sexy Alpha called Wick.
I liked Wick from the beginning. He does Alpha really well. ;-)
I felt like Andy was a tease. I know she had her reasons for holding back but she was frustrating me and I'm not the one who wanted in her pants. There was a boatload of sexual tension but it went unfulfilled. They kissed but that was about the extent of it. If you want hot and sweaty action, this is not the book for you. I do have hope that those circumstances will change in the next book. :-)
There were various directions that the plot took which kept my attention, had me guessing, and has me salivating for the next book.
I don't want to give too much away but I can not wait to see what happens with Tristan. I would love to see Andy and Wick perform the mate bond. I wish someone would spike Lucien and I can't wait to learn more about what it means to be a carus. I have a feeling that Ma may just need a muzzle before it's all said and done. :-)
There was action, sexual tension galore, alpha males, a stubborn heroine that you don't want to tick off, a smidgen of romance, some suspense, loads of danger, and a uniqueness that will have you deeply hooked.
There were plenty of differences between Shift Happens and the other shifter books that I've read. I won't list them because I want you to discover them for yourselves. I think you'll get more enjoyment that way.
I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I thought it was a great beginning to a series that will have me pre-ordering new books. It was superb!
