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.Read more ›

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.
Zac and Brandon have been in love since university - but neither knows the other returns their feelings. Zac lives a secret life - to his family he is an FBI agent, in actuality he is a government assassin. Brandon is a psychologist who does work for the FBI on the side, with a secret of his own. When one of Brandon's patients goes missing and he knows somethings wrong, he turns to Zac, both for his FBI expertise (that Zac lacks, since he actually isn't an agent) and to get reacquainted with his university crush. The story follows Zac and Brandon as they track down what happens to Brandon's patient, and fall in love with each other all over again.
I really enjoyed this story. I thought the writing style was smooth, and there were no moments when I was dragged out of the story because of a glaring error on the author's part. Zac and Brandon both seemed like adorable characters, who I thought were even more adorable together! There was not huge emotional development on the part of the characters, but this was a great feel-good story. There were points where I thought the story could have been developed a bit more, for example the scene where Zac came out to his mother could have been given more detail, but all in all it was a cute, feel-good story that I would read again.
I was really looking forward to this story. And I am left disappointed.
Zac is living an under cover life. He's an assassin, but none of his family knows it. He returned to his childhood home for a family celebration between assignments. His cover job is as an FBI agent.
Brody, Zac's college crush, is still in town. He hears that Zac is back and asks him for help with his friends/ patient's disappearance.
Although I got drawn into the mystery, I didn't think it was fully developed. A big problem the local cops couldn't solve, but these two did it in days, while also falling in love?
That's another thing, they go from not seeing each other since college to engaged in days! They both think they can never trust people with their secrets, so therefore never have a relationship, to getting married?? They both told each other their secrets and it was just like, yep, cool, let's get married!
I also found the editing lacking. There were a few things wrong, but my pet hate of getting the characters name wrong happened in this, and a side character we never meet actually had his name changed mid way though!
Atwood creates natural, real characters who carry the story forward very well. She takes time to develop each character separately, highlighting their differences and similarities in a heady mix. There is a well-developed relationship between the characters. You can really see where it comes from and where it’s heading. The budding relationship combines with the suspense of the story for a heady mix.
Atwood once again had my attention with this fantastic novella. This is a great start to a new series that I can’t wait to delve further into.
Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
