This is the first book in this amazing series and I would suggest you start with it.
Although it doesn’t really give you an inclination on what they are going to be like. I have always been drawn to the paranormal world and when you add in a romance with sexy men then I am pretty easy. There are parts of it that are quite unique and I was pleasantly surprised by that. Although to be truthful it does feel like it was told with a fast pace. It doesn’t talk about mates which is quite different from others. However when they hook up it comes off not the way it should. It does not take away from the story itself though.
Zac left home, joined the marines and became a sniper. After the service, he was approached and basically became an assassin. He killed those who could not be touched by the law and needed to be executed. When his twin had her daughter, he came home to an unexpected surprise. He had been a football star in high school and was not what one would could call gay. He had always had a crush on his chemistry partner and helper. Brody however did not know that part of it. Now coming home, Brody has approached him for help. Help to find a missing student and patient.
Brody has quite a secret that he has known but not shared. He is a cougar shape shifter and has many different types of gifts that come with it. When he had been in school, his main goal was to go into pre-med, but he switched it. Now part-time he worked for the FBI as a profiler and needed help in finding his patient. He had heard that Zac was a FBI agent and wondered if he would help.
He had always hidden the fact that he was gay. But man, Zac comes home and he is totally out of the closet. Sparks fly every time these two get together and a killer has Brody in his sights.
I had an absolute blast reading this and look forward to reading the next book. I loved it and would gladly recommend reading it. It gave me almost everything I could want in it. It had my attention from the moment I started reading it and kept it all the way to the end.
I only wish that the next story is longer, because this was just a teaser for me.

Zac and Brody met each other while attending school, but nothing happened except some lusting after each other, watching from afar.
Brody is afraid that something serious had happened to one of his patients and believing the cover story saying Zac is a FBI agent, he asks for help.
The killer is more cunning than they had assumed and Zac and Brody come away only thanks to an ability the perpetrator didn't even suspect existed.
I was right about the length of this story. It is short and thus a bit pricey. And the relationship develops so fast that there are mere hours between the first kiss and the proposal. But then it could be explained by being fated mates, even if it is not mentioned.
Anyway, because of the short length of the story, the characters are a bit one-dimensional.
Brody had harbored a secret crush on college friend Zac all those years ago but his confusion over his sexuality held him back. It did not stop him from being friends though so when he heard Zac was in town, he calls for assistance on a missing patient.
What started out as a mission impossible for both their hearts and their quest, ended in a situation that neither man expected.
This is set in an alternate universe where psychics openly worked with authorities to find missing persons and shifters were known but uncommon. The bigotry remains when it came to sexuality and the confusion of the norm vs reality. Both men still feel the need to protect their hearts from possible rejection by their loved one's and lives from those who wish harm on the different.
Zac and Brody search for the missing patient and stumble into a love affair that may just be their happily ever after. It is a romantic read, the mystery flowed and developed very well, the antagonist was curiously pathetic and dangerous simultaneously and the plot went through a few twists and turns that made this a fun read.
Not too long, the author does not waste time to plunk he reader into the story which made this a short and light read somewhat. Can be read in one sitting. Now I have to finish the second book ...
Zac McQuade is an assassin working for the U.S. government and works under the guise of being a special agent for the FBI. He goes back to his hometown for his niece's christening. While driving pass his alma mater he reminiscent about his college crush Brody Maitland. When he actually gets home he finds out he has a message from Brody. This kicks starts his hopefully feelings. Until he meets up with Brody to find out why Brody wished to talk to him.
Brody is a successful psychiatrist who also holds a degree in criminal justice. He enlists Zac's help to find a patient of his who has gone missing. He doesn't expect Zac to help him and when Zac does he let's it be known that he doesn't expect Zac to do it alone.
It was an interesting story but moved quite quickly since it was so short. There isn't much back ground info on either characters or relationship building. The mystery aspect of the story was nice and I like that readers weren't really given any real suspects and an idea of whodunit till near the end of the story.
I had a couple of issues with the book. One was that I wished was addressed was if Brody ever found anyone else who was a shifter and got the answers he needed. It was explained in the story that he hasn't met anyone else and he's not even sure there is even other shifters out there. I also didn't like that that Zac was referring to Brody as his mate when he didn't know Brody was even a shifter. For me it felt out of place since this is a shifter novel.
