I haven’t had a buddy read with Jamsu since August. We were talking last week and told me that she was ordering this book, so I suggested we buddy read it! I’m so happy that we did 😊

After the first couple of chapters I was really pleased with the story and believed that it had the possibility to be a 5 star read. Sadly the rest of the story didn’t fully deliver and that’s why I gave it 4 stars.

I’m definitely a paranormal fan after reading many shapeshifter books, so I can say that Beau is one of my favorites. He’s not the traditional bad-boy shifter; he’s more of a gentleman. I liked how he was flirting with Bathsheba, but some of his actions were questionable and frustrated me.

Bathsheba is a human living among supernatural creatures. Even her sister, Sara, is a shapeshifter. She may be physically weaker than her sister, however she’s always been her protector. Bath put her sister first all her life and everything she does in the book is to keep her safe. I really appreciate her protectiveness, but I would prefer to see her thing about her life in some instances.

The end left me intrugued and even though I wasn’t very fond of Sara I’m curious to read her story as well. Maybe in our next buddy read with Jamsu!

You can find Jamsu’s review here and connect with her on her blog and twitter 🤗






Jessica Sims lives in Texas. She hates writing a bio, so something cool will undoubtedly go here later when she actually thinks of something interesting to write. She has some cats, but what writer doesn’t? She plays video games and confesses to reading comic books. And she likes writing, but that one was pretty obvious.
