“If you’re in the mood for some hot shifters who can kick ass, pick up this series, just make sure it’s in order.” ~Under the Covers
Passion’s Prey is the third installment in The Shadow Shifters series and while I found myself very interested in the world that Ms. Arthur created, I felt a bit lost. But of course that is my fault, because I haven’t read the first two in this series. So before you even pick this up, I recommend you read this series in order so this world can flow the way it should.
Although I was lost, I enjoyed this world. These shadow shifters are half human and half cat species. They range from Tigers to cheetahs and they are quite powerful and beautiful. They’re pretty much shape shifters and they live in our world to protect not only their own species but the humans as well from the Rogues that have separated from their tribe.
In Passion’s Prey the story of X and Caprise is very full of…. well….. Passion. These two are stubborn, hard and strong willed and when they collide it’s not sparks, It’s fireworks!
X is an FBI agent and his latest job is to watch over Caprise who’s life is in danger. And while X is comfortable in his Shadow shifter skin, Caprise is not and she does everything she can to deny her fate and live like a human. So when X finds her stripping at a local strip club he can’t help but want to take her away from it all. He’s just not sure if it’s because he wants to save her or screw the crap out of her. What makes it even worse? Caprise is the sister of X’s best friend. But that sure doesn’t stop them from getting it on all over the place!
Caprise and X seem to share similar dark pasts and man is it heavy. Their stories will at least have you raising your eyebrows in utter disgust and shock. It’s not your typical girl saves guy or guy saves girl, these two save each other which puts them on even ground. They end up having mutual respect for one another and that makes their relationship strong.
Besides all that, Passion’s Prey is a great world that is involved with the FBI and all that good stuff. These shifters are in this world of ours and we don ‘t even know it. They’re kick ass no nonsense guys so if you’re in the mood for some hot shifters who can kick ass, pick up this series, just make sure it’s in order.
The lovely ladies of UTC help me venture out into other genres to fill all my naughty little voids and in return I get to feel cool and do some reviews for them.
