Lindi Parker works hard at being human, not an easy task for a snake shifter. She has no desire to search for others like her - until a new case changes everything. When Lindi learns that she she's not the only shapeshifter in the world, she also realizes she might be next on a killer's list.
In order to save herself and the abused children she works with, she will have to team up with Dr. Kade Nevala, a member of the shifter tribe responsible for eradicating weresnakes - and the most attractive man Lindi's ever met. Even more terrifying, she'll need to embrace her serpent side, a choice that has enormous consequences for Lindi, and for everyone around her.

Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!
I've listened to two of Margo Bond Collins's books in the past, and really enjoyed them. They were both unique and Under Her Skin was no different. When I first noticed this was shifter story about weresnakes, I was thinking this couldn't be a good story. But when I noticed the author was Margo Bond Collins, I knew if anyone could pull off a story about weresnakes, it would be her. This was one of the reasons I requested to listen to this story. The other reason, I like supporting new and up and coming authors and narrators. After listening, I'm convinced Collins is a very talented author, Under Her Skin is an unusual shifter story, with drama, suspense and some romance.
Lindi was raised by an adoptive family. Her adoptive father worked with snakes and brought home a snake to study but was stunned the next day when he see's a little toddler. Since that day, she's been with her adoptive family and believes she is the only shifter. She's all grown up and has learned to control her shifter side. Lindi works with children as a counselor to help them recover from traumatic events. Her newest case brings her face to face with a little girl who's just killed someone in self defense. What surprises Lindi is this little girl is actually a shifter too, but what kind she doesn't know. She takes the little girl to the hospital to be examined to be sure she wasn't hurt and comes face to face with Dr. Kade Nevala. A shifter himself, he confronts Lindi behind closed doors and tells her he knows what she is, but it's his job to kill her kind. He doesn't because they have chemistry and are attracted to each other at first sight. When shifter children start turning up dead, they end up working together and start falling for each other.
The writing was good, and the story kept me engaged but sadly Collins was not able sway me to the snake shifter side….. maybe it's my repulsion for snakes. However, if you love shifter stories, and want to dip into a world full of different types of shifters, then you may want to consider this unusual shifter story. As for me, I still on the fence if I will continue the series. I was voluntarily provided this free review audiobook copy by the author, narrator, or publisher.
I am addicted to audiobooks. It makes my 1 hour (each way) commute go by without me becoming an agressive driver. lol
I received this audiobook free for an honest review. Margo Bond Collins does an excellent job of bringing you in to her stories and keeping you there. I hate to stop listening until it is finished, then I am disappointed that there is no more story. I was so excited to see this book was free. However, I would have bought it anyway. The narrator did a great job of developing and enhancing the characters. Lindi and Kade have a very interesting and exciting relationship. Being different shifters and enemies gives the story quite a intriguing plot. I really enjoyed this book. Margo is an awesome story teller and Emma Lysy is a fabulous narrator. Looking for more books on Lindi and Kade.
