What a first book! Really I can't believe this is Marie Johnston's first novel! The flow is well done and the pace is just perfect.
The story of Jace and Cassie is full of intense longing, borderline erotica sex scenes, and tender passion that make this a truly memorable shifter romance novel.
Cassie is a professional psychologist and very good at reading people, except she's unexpectedly dumped by her rather boring fiance and hooks up with hot bartender Jace without knowing that he is a wolf shifter who fully intends her to be his mate. There is some hint to the mystery of her past that may prove to be a bit more exciting and maybe supernatural than she is aware of.
In this first book we are introduced to many characters, including the evil Sigma gang who appear to be led by a madwoman who may be a vampire and something darker. the Guardians are Sigma's natural enemies and are fellow shifters though Jace is not part of the team, being a former convict.
The novel ends just where you want it to and though it is a complete story it fully leaves you wanting more.
I recommend this to paranormal romance lovers, you will not be disappointed!
