Shape shifters

While another story about shape shifters this one follows the lead of all others. Girl in trouble finds her mate and he rescues her and she rescues him in return two years later she's having his baby. Although I did enjoy the story I do wish someone would throw a loop in the story. Why is there never a female shifter? Would love to see that and how it turns out.

Abusive Ex Sends Sophie in to the Arms of Her Mate

In the world created by Ms Marlie Monroe, shifters are known to everyone and most live on shifter reservations. Sophie retreats to Pleasant Valley (a shifter reservation) while trying to escape an abusive ex. Her co-worker, Deb, at the library is a funny woman who says things like, “You know what they say, the best way to get over one man is to get under another one.”

I liked the story and the way Rick and Sophie got to know each other. Despite feeling an instant mate attraction to her, Rick is careful with Sophie and wants to protect her and doesn’t try to push her in to a relationship.
David Quimby is an OK narrator but certainly not my favorite, he uses one voice for narrating everything except direct quotes. I prefer when narrators use the same voice for a person’s thoughts and their direct quotes. His male voices were definitely better than his female. But there wasn’t any background noise or annoying production errors.

I recommend this book if you like shifter romance with an instant mate bond. I don’t believe its worth the cost of a credit but it is selling for $5 at the time of this review. I will probably read another book by Ms Monroe because she tells a decent short story and I am interested in the shifter reservations she’s created.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
