Sasha and his men are settling nicely into their new lives.  The scrimmages with the Russian mob, as well as the bear shifters, have been put behind them.  But why is Sasha starting to feel so unsettled and has someone he knows gone rogue?

Tiger Tiger is the second book in the Chicagoland Shifters series.  This new story picks up shortly after the end of the first book.  Sasha, as well as Neal, Steve, Carlos, and the rest of the shifters at the Factory, have settled down and are trying to get their lives back to normal.  Of course, this is just the opening the authors needed to stir things up again and they do so in a way that pulls the readers right back into the world they created.

I like this new story line.  The fact that it is possible that the rogue leaving kills around the Factory could possibly be one of the men that belongs to Neal’s Krug, is very realistic, especially as there are some who have trouble accepting their animal side.  I, for one, seriously thought it would turn out to be TJ and wondered if it did, how the authors would make things right.  The readers will be slightly surprised when the authors start to reveal what is going on and where the fault lies.  The authors also use this situation to introduce many new secondary characters.  I found many of these characters interesting and am curious as to how they will play into future stories.  

Even with all the outside forces spinning around them, Sasha, Neal, Steve and Carlos find the time to be together.  While these four men continue to heat up the pages with their passion, it is easy to see that Sasha is starting to worry about what he has.  Unfortunately, Sasha has a right to worry and I cannot believe how he was treated by one of the men he is involved with.  I wanted to smack this person and was glad the situation was handled the way it was.  

Tiger Tiger is just as well written as the first book.  I liked the way in which the authors continued to pull me into the paranormal world they created.  By expanding the world in the way they have, the series felt fresh and the problems new.  I am curious to see how, and in which direction, the authors plan to take the next book.  Remember this is a series that will have to be read in order.
