I liked this story, but I have to admit I preferred her Vampire years series. I'm not really into shifters and werewolves but the characters were interesting and i would recommend it if you like that sort of thing.
Tamsyn's got the hots for Cruz- always has. He feels the same but always holds back, pushing her away even while making sure other guys stay clear of her as well, even while doing his best Edward Cullen impersonation outside her window. But Cruz and his brother Dominic have a secret- and Tamsyn is somehow linked to it- they just need to stay alive long enough to find out how.
An interesting premise undone by choppy execution; it feels rushed from too much mono/dialogue and still not enough exposition to really get into the story.

As the title suggests, it is a very sultry sexy read. I lost count how many times the lovers well... loved. But getting past that onto the shapeshifter/werewolf story, it's actually pretty good.
Plot: The plot is simple, guy meets girl, falls in love with her, but because the fact he's a shifter, he is told to stay away from her by his loving more experienced older brother. Foolishly thinking they were the only shifters out there, the Medina brothers let their guard down, only to find out they are right in the middle of cover-ups, and conspiracies galore. They find out that she is in the middle of this too, and if they don't escape with her, they all will be captured and caged.
Characters: Dominic - Older brother and with that comes wisdom. He was the first to shift, and now watches out for his younger brother Cruz. He also tries to warn Cruz from making his mistakes.
Cruz - Young, arrogant, immature. He's your basic "likes to fight" guy. When Tamsyn is with another man, his jealousy overwhelms him to the point of chasing after the guy in the streets in his wolf form.
Tamsyn - I found I didn't really care for her character as much in the beginning. It wasn't until the last couple chapters that I started warming up to her. She is VERY comfortable with her sexuality, but overly so I think.
It's not your typical romance novel, meaning... setup, attraction, fight, makeup, happily ever after. It's more like setup, fight, makeout, makeout, makeout, story, makeout, story, makeout. That's the one thing I didn't like about it, was there was TOO MUCH making out. I know that's weird to say, because you can't ever have enough right? But really, I thought there was just a little too much.
There is a cliffhanger in this, and hopefully in the sequel we get to find out what happened to Dominic's first love, but I wish there was just a little more about him in this one. I look forward to his story. I do like the fact that they can partially change, be man and wolf at the same time. That's something you don't read every day. While there are similarities to other stories as far as they can hear each other think, there are subtle differences as well. All in all, a good read, and definitely worth the price.
