It took me a little to get into “Shift”. It was slow paced in the beginning, but it did pick up. Emery is an interesting character and his name is pretty unique for a guy. He’s got a lot of secrets, but he does his job well. Tori cracks me up. You can feel what she’s going through. I really enjoyed how the author showed Tori’s emotions when it involved Emery. Tori’s kind of an open book, but she’s aware that she needs to survive. Being the daughter of a KGB defector can’t be fun, but she makes do.
When a Russian hit squad comes into town looking to take out Tori, Emery has to step up his game in order to keep her safe. I think it’s pretty cool that Tori gets to work with cars. Most people don’t even know how to change the oil let alone check the engine, but she does a pretty awesome job tuning them up.
At the end of the book you will get a preview of Sidney's next book, “Chase”.
Nothing shines like classic cars under the Miami heat. With engines revving hot and emotions running high, sparks are sure to fly . . .
Tori Chazov isn't exactly the girl next door. For one, if the neighbors found out she's an FBI asset and the daughter of a KGB defector, she'd have to grab her go bag and run. Then there's her day job: making magic happen under the hood of big beautiful muscle cars. She's more likely to be wearing engine grease than mascara, and most guys don't fantasize about their mechanics.
But then most girls don't fantasize about FBI tech geniuses, either, and Tori has it bad for Emery Martin. Emery has a past. She can see it in the way he keeps his body honed like a weapon, in the mysterious scars under his snap-button shirts. She can see it in the way his eyes follow her around the room, even though he never says a word.
He's going to have to start talking now, though. A vicious Russian hit squad is on the way to Miami to take Tori out for good. And without Emery's help, she might not make her last great escape . . .
