Anthropologist Adrian Thornapple finally gets a chance to apply hands on studies in his chosen profession when he is offered a trip to the Amazon rain forest. Also traveling to the rain forest is Captain Thomas Ferrell, an agent for paranormal investigators Borderless Observers Org. However, Tom is on a mission to terminate a drug operation.

Shift Happens is an action packed adventure. The plot is well written, as well as fast-paced. The characters are convincing. Adrian worked in a mundane office job after graduation. His former mentor invites him on a rainforest expedition, but Adrian declines at first. The events that swiftly follows the expedition offer has Adrian changing his mind. Adrian’s neighbor dies in the hallway in front of his apartment door; the police suspect Adrian is involved in her death. Adrian’s employer is downsizing the work force; his job is on the chopping block. Adrian first meets Tom on the airplane; where they indulge in speedy bathroom sex. This is not the customary actions of either man. Adrian is a quiet respectful observer of details in addition to having a keen mind for solving riddles. These talents come in handy when Tom accidently shifts into a jaguar. By way of shared magical dreams, Adrian decodes the clues to restore Tom’s humanity as well as develops a love for Tom. Even in jaguar form, Tom is an honorable man. Tom never forgets his ingrained duty to protect, especially Adrian, whom Tom has fallen in love with.

Shift Happens is a nail biting action thriller blended with enchantment, hilarity and sensual dreams. Storm Grant has created an excellent escapade that I thoroughly enjoyed.

I was privileged to critique this novel and agree with Chocolate Minx. Fast action and lots of fun. Especially the jungle natives.
