Publisher's Summary

From award-winning author Leigh Ellwood comes a wild and sexy tale about werewolves, were-panthers, and the women who love them.

Living in Bliss, New Jersey has it perks, unless you're a shifter looking for love or a human looking for peace and quiet. Not only does Calla Savitch, owner of Shear Bliss salon, have to deal with warring panthers and werewolves with overlapping appointments, she's fed up with their constant matchmaking attempts. The last thing she wants, especially, is a hook-up with the one shifter who broke her heart years ago.

Handsome were-panther Caleb Houlihan still nurses the guilt of Calla's heartbreak, but when presented with a second chance to woo her he is reluctant. Calla may forgive his youthful indiscretions, but when she discovers his aunt's true motive for wanting them together, will she send him packing?

On this stretch of the Jersey Shore, it's a different "situation"!

Narrator ruined the book

Every single person sounded the same. I guess I also didn't expect to hear the Jersey accent. I couldn't get past that male Panthers sounded like little girls and all the girls sounded the same and with that darn accent.
The story could've been good but I couldn't bare to listen so I know it's bad when u fast forward several times in a 2 hour story.

Not Worth Your Time

What would have made Sheer Bliss: A Shapeshifter Erotic Romance better?

Better narration. Worst one I've ever listened to.

Would you ever listen to anything by Leigh Ellwood again?

I don't know. The performance of the narrator was so awful that it adversely affected the storyline.

What didn’t you like about Charity McGowan’s performance?

Uninspiring; sounded like an adolescent. The narrator sounded like a 12 year old. It seemed the voice she used for Caleb was higher than the voice she used for the women. And I couldn't figure out what kind of accent she was trying to use for some of the women. Was that supposed to be "Jersey?"

Middle of the road ..

I enjoyed the basic story line here in Sheer Bliss. I love shapeshifters - paranormal romance genres too. But I will start choosing narrations that are a more comfortable listen. Charity McGowan is a good reader, however a tad bit monotone. And I am learning that I just prefer a more stronger, fuller voice narration in my romance novels, especially if I have to listen to it at any length.
