Synopsis from Goodreads:

One woman’s mission to bring down a sexy elemental shifter turns into a battle of wills…and hearts.

Hostage recovery specialist Eli Chance has a secret. He was born a shifter. A freak of nature.

While on a mission, Eli’s men and their mercenary guide are exposed to a powerful chemical agent, and suddenly his secret has become easier to hide. Now he’s not the only one with the gift. But for his men, this “gift” is becoming more and more of a curse.

Tyana Berezovsky’s brother Damiano was the guide for Eli’s team and was the worst affected by the chemical. As he grows increasingly unstable, Tyana fears she’s going to lose him to the beast he is becoming.

Tyana will do whatever it takes to help him, even if it means using her body to go after the one man she thinks holds all the blame—and possibly the cure. Eli Chance.

My Review:

This novel had it all; suspense, action, steam, and some real tearjerker moments. I was caught up in the suspense of the tale, trying to figure out what was coming next. That said, the narrator didn’t do this book justice. She downplayed the action in the tale rather than infusing emotion and suspense into the novel. This would have been much better as a print copy. The characters in this tale had me from the get-go. They weren’t your typical shifters, but rather had a definite twist on the norm. It was also a cast full of alpha males, which would set anyone drooling.

Overall, this was a unique introduction to the series and left me wanting more. I definitely want to know what’s coming next for these loveable yet aggravating characters.
