Another awesome, shifter story from J.C. McKenzie, filled with adventure, mystery and love. With her books you get to expect the unexpected. Tristan’s secret threatens to destroy Andy and their relationship as she helps a friend find a murderer. Gripping conflict. But what I like best about the Carus series is the witty-edged dialogue. Andy McNeilly is a badass heroine who says what she thinks.
My favorite three lines (sorry I couldn’t stop at one) are:
• “The air sucked out of my lungs, leaving me breathless and lightheaded. He always had this effect on me—as if oxygen was inconsequential, as if I could live without air as long as we were together.”
• “Again, I wished for a Carus Operating Manual- Beast for Dummies. Maybe I should write one for the next Carus.”
• “If Tristan was steak, this guy for all his sexy tattoos, muscles, and good looks was expired ground beef.”
I highly recommend Shift Work for anyone who loves urban fantasy.
