“Edie Spence series is for sure one of the best UF books around.” ~Under the Covers

Moonshifted is the second installment of Edie Spence series. Ms. Alexander delivered another well written and engaging story. She managed to make this book even better with a more detailed but complex plot.  I devoured it in about two and half days which is big for me considering I’m a slow reader.

Edie continues to get her nursing experience working at a secret unit called Y4 where her patients are of the supernatural kind.  If you read Nightshifted (book1), you know that Edie is a special nurse.  She is a patient advocate and she goes above and beyond her duties.  She is good at what she does and can handle high stress level situations.  Well, she definitely proved that here when chaos occurs at her work as well as her personal life.

The world building is more in-depth in this installment. Ms. Alexander definitely widened the world, it’s not just limited to the patients in Y4 but even beyond the hospital walls. Edie is more involved with the faction of vampires’ and the wolves’ hierarchies during the overturn of leaders.  Along with the caring for a patient who happens to be the Alpha of his pack; she also promised to be responsible and be a part of a vampire coronation ceremony.  Both factions are involved in a power struggle that is of course brewing into war.  Edie just finds herself in the midst of all the chaos. I’m telling you, they all seem to flock to her for help.  While she does well with this type of chaos, I can’t say the same for her love life.

She still doesn’t have one.  After her zombie boyfriend left her she just can’t seem to shake him off.  Not that she doesn’t have any choices, in fact, she has two good candidates.  Asher, a sexy shifter is at her beck and call.  And Lucas, a wolf up for the Alpha leadership position is also very interested.  It’s frustrating to see her attraction for them but not able to give a relationship a chance.  I mean, both men are super sexy, very powerful and did I mention sexy?  I just totally disagree with her sleeping around and I can’t wait for her to give love a chance.  *Preferably with Asher*

Edie’s co-workers, her brother and even her mom were fun to read about.  They are so easy to love or hate (as far as her brother goes).  Ms. Alexander is obviously knowledgeable about nursing care but what awes me is her incorporation of it into a paranormal world.  It was really cool to see how protocols are handled when your patients are supernaturals.  Ms. Alexander ended this book with a bit of a cliffhanger.  There were some decisions that seemed final and I’m curious to see how she will pull Edie out of that situation.

I enjoyed every bit of this book.  The plot is very intriguing, full of action and a good amount of smexy.  Edie Spence series is for sure one of the best UF books around.

About Cassie Alexander

Edie Spence just wanted a vacation. A nice, relaxing, stress free, non-adventure away from the craziness that's dominated her life since becoming a nurse for paranormal creatures. But from the start, her trip on the Maraschino, a cruise ship bound for Hawaii, has been anything but stress free, especially when Edie's boyfriend Asher recognizes someone he used to know. Someone from his not-so-nice past. With their lives in the balance, will Edie and Asher be able to save their growing family or will this adventure be their end?

I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
