For Shift's Sake

Who wouldn't want Reese in their bed? Reese is a big bear shifter on a mission to Las Vegas to relax when he's tapped to assist a former comrade by checkin g on his little sister. Used to death defying jobs in his career as a special forces soldier, he figures retirement will be easy if not lonely. Boy is he in for a shock.

Bobbi's got gumption and goals, but somehow ended up living her parent's dream after they died. And what is with all the drama in what used to be a quiet town? For a plus size girl, she's fighting off the creeps left and right, no knight in shining armor in sight. What about a bear with a sexy accent on a bike?

This was a delightfully easy going read that had some action and adventure, some passion and violence, and some good old fashioned lack of self-esteem and self-confidence. I would have liked more details about the brother but am sure he will have a book all his own soon. The author painted a picture of a town caught in a downward spiral, just ripe for the picking.

The instant attraction and chemistry between Reese and Bobbi was alternatively hot and sweet and tended to turn off Bobbi's oral filter; but hey, I talk to myself too. I found Bobbi's lack of knowledge about shifters a little hard to swallow, but that's just me. Reese was just adorable as a clueless man in love, and his bear was too. My only complaint would be no epilogue. A good read.

Book Blurb for For Shift's Sake

Bobbi Bradbury has man trouble. Local bully boy, Conrad Jackson, has decided she's his Miss. Right but as far as she's concerned, he couldn't be more Mr.Wrong. Unfortunately, he's not taking no for an answer. The charm offensive is over and it seems he's looking to take what he wants, no matter her thoughts on the matter.

Reese Connor is out of the army and on his way to Vegas. The open road, no bullets flying past his's all this scarred and weary werebear wants. Until his old buddy calls in a favour. Operation: protection. His buddy's little sister is in some kind of trouble. Fine. He'll check in and bust a few heads then carry on his merry way...

But the path to Vegas never runs smoothly and Reese finds himself between the devil and the deep blue sea. His buddy's little sister is less sweet and innocent and more sexy and seriously curved. And his mate.

The kicker? She doesn't know about werebears. The second kicker? His buddy'll kill him for touching his little sister. And if that wasn't enough, someone out there is determined that he won't have Bobbi...ever. And they'll put her six feet under to stop him.
