Publisher's Summary

In the second novel from best-selling author Milly Taiden's Shifters Undercover series, two shifters must work together to unravel a gripping mystery while fighting their fierce passion...

Marika Paters has an energy coursing through her that others can't explain. Maybe it's the curious fox that lies within that gives Marika joy in her work as a geneticist for the only forensic laboratory for animals. But while her research unravels mysteries - like startling new data that threatens to dismantle everything science knows about shifters - Marika has always felt incomplete, just another lonely shifter looking for her mate.

Following a family tragedy, Fellowship Agent Devin Sonder believes he will never find love. But the panther inside knows his mate is out there somewhere - and he can't give up. When the bodies of a senator and a mysterious dead wolf lead Devin to kind, playful Marika, he feels a powerful, magnetic attraction...even though their personalities clash.

With more dead wolves found, Marika makes a revolutionary discovery about the origin of the beasts. Together with Devin, she races to find out who could be creating shifters - and why. But can the fierce alpha panther and the fiery, driven fox put their carnal desire aside to hunt down the mastermind before more shifters die?

Great potential, but lacking -- something.

While the narrator did a good job of portraying the different characters in the book, the nasal sound of her voice was a bit grating to me. She did get the energy a high spirited fox might have spot on.
The story line is potentially a good one. However, there's not enough development of anyone or anything. I figured I would try this when it was on sale. You really need to hear (or I hope that's the case) the first book to understand some of the references so you can understand my confusion when reading all these glowing reviews that it's a wonderful stand alone book.
Davin is sooooo horrible with his teeter tottering emotions. He's either over the top "she's mine and I'm never letting her out of my sight" or "I have to leave her to save her so this won't work" with absolutely no transition between.
Things just seemed way rushed to me. I did enjoy this book, I just don't think I got what all the other gushing reviewers got. I will possibly get more of her books, but with the advanced knowledge not to expect much.

Incredibly Breathtaking and Wildly Exciting

I have deeply loved the books I have read by Milly Taiden, and this series has quickly become my favorite by this fantastic author. She writes a wonderfully compelling storyline that is so deliciously complex and stunningly heartfelt. I lost myself in its strong yet seductive grip. The characters are beautifully fierce, and I found my heart shredded at the real problems that they all face. Taiden makes you feel everything, and that realization blew me away the first time I read one of her stories. Now it attracts me like a bear to honey. I don't want to read a book if I can't feel every person, every decision, and the atmosphere that permeates throughout the treasured pages of a precious masterpiece.This is the creme de le creme of paranormal stories, and you will be missing out on pure perfection if you pass this book up!

Good story but ends in a cliffy

3 stars

This was an enjoyable story but it ends in a cliffhanger and I wasn't very happy about that.

Marika is s squirrel shifter that is a doctor in genetics. She is very hyper due to her inner squirrel and tends to be messy in a rather organized and controlled way.

Devin is a panther shifter that works for the Fellowship, an undercover group of shifters that investigate unusual crimes. Devin is rather damaged due to the loss of his sister and nephew. He fears loving again because loving and losing someone is just too painful. He also seems a bit on the OCD side.

The story starts with the death of a Senator that Devin comes across while taking his morning jog. He finds out that it was a shifter attack and under the purview of the Fellowship. One of the creatures that attacked the Senator was killed and the body is sent to a special lab that Marika works at doing genetic research. This brings Marika and Devin together and they recognize each other as mates and accept it with very little strife. The only real drama is a couple of minor freak outs by Devin where he questions the mating because of his fears. I did like that Marika wasn't willing to put up with any of his bull and smacked him around (in a nice way) when when he questioned them. Although Marika and Devin do cement their mating before the end of the story, they're not safe at the end and the story ends in a total cliffhanger so I can't even say they're at a HFN state.

This was an enjoyable story. I liked Marika and thought her spunk was cute...even if I questioned her "ninja skills" that were apparently learned mostly from kung fu movies. Devin was a good hero but I didn't understand his idea to reject his mate to avoid future hurt...it just didn't make sense because (from the way it sounds like mates work in this world) leaving her would have broken him anyways. I liked he interactions between them but the story was a bit short and with the investigation and all, I didn't get as much of the interaction between MCs as I would have liked. Overall, this was a decent story but I am annoyed it ended in a major cliffy and at this point, I'm unsure if I'll continue the series...

I think I would like it if it would play past the middle of chapter 2

It won't play tho I have redownloaded 2 times. I liked the first book and wanted to listen to this one as I read along, but I can't get it past this spot.

Suspenseful

Wow what an ending. I can't wait to see what happens next. Love the mix of shifters who are looking for love and taking care of business,
