This book is part of a series. It can be read alone but it does reference the earlier books.
Verity is a Damp Squib, a group of shifters who are just as strong and fast as shifters but cannot actually shift. When she does a dare (from the group Damp Squibs) and wakes up naked in Magnus’ backyard, he goes to see what is out there. From there on, this bear shifter sets about following her and making sure she is safe from whoever is murdering squibs. This initializes some strong feelings between the two.
The reason I read this book is that I am a fan of MaryJanice Davidson. Though I haven’t read the earlier books in the series, I was confident that I would enjoy this one. Davidson has a way about her writing that makes me chuckle quite often. This is true with the words spouted out of Verity’s mouth. Verity’s pension for speaking before thinking gives a good laugh. The flow of the story was perfect, though the whole reason Magnus went looking in his yard in the first place was thrown to the side. I plan on looking in to the earlier books and will keep my eyes out for any more that may come in this series.
Many thanks to Net Galley and Sourcebooks Casablanca for providing me with an ARC of this book.
