The Shifter Inside Has Caused Him Unimaginable Pain
Jonathan has tried to deny his panther side. He’s completely isolated himself inside of his billionaire company, and intentionally has no friends. Because his family was taken from him.
Beth is a beautiful, happy, curvy woman that’s had her share of normal dating mishaps. But falling for a panther shifter might take her dating history to a new level of potential disaster.
They are brought together through an act of violence that staggers them both. She needs him, and he needs to save her. That one moment begins a series of events that pushes them both to the brink.
Can a reclusive billionaire accept his fierce desire to protect this lovely woman from harm, even if protecting her means accepting his life as a shifter? And if he does, will she be able to accept every part of him?
This is a 15,000+ word novella. It is a STANDALONE with NO CLIFFHANGER.

Mmmm! I do love shifter romance. This was a fantastic start to what I imagine will be a great series. The beginning of this book was my favorite. I was hooked from the very first sentence.
“I smelled her fear before I heard her scream.”
Jonathan King is a loner billionaire who is trying to repress his panther side. However, his panther needs to run and the two sides of Jonathan have come to an understanding by letting his panther out at night.
Beth Winters is a music teacher whose had a series of bad dates. Just when she’s given up on the dating scene, one walk home changes her fate.
“It’s funny how life sometimes has a way of leading you down the path you really need without you even noticing it beforehand.”
When Jonathan and Beth meet for the first time, they are both irresistibly drawn to each other. After their first meeting, Jonathan can’t stay away from Beth.
“My dick was pushing in my pants now and I was having an internal dialogue with my panther, trying to get him to back down.”
Well, I can’t really say too much more without giving anything away. I do need to comment on a scene between Jonathan and Beth that was so hot and that was when Jonathan was helping Beth with her clothes. It was seriously hot, but then… I had to giggle a little because there was a line in there that made me laugh, but I don’t think it was meant to. Of course I knew what was meant by it, but it just struck me a little funny.
“I couldn’t look at her pussy or I would combust and all of my good intentions would fly away. She stepped out of them and the smell of her sex hit me like a punch to the gut.”
The only part of this book that I didn’t care for was that it felt rushed towards the end. It started out with a bang and then quickly ended. The story was fine, just rushed.
Overall it was a really good read and I would recommend it to anyone who likes paranormal shifter romance. The sex is really good and Jonathan and Beth are great together. Since this is an insta-love story, I would like to read more about Jonathan and Beth’s relationship. I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.
I received a copy of this book via the author in exchange for an honest review.
