Tuesday started off bad and was getting worse by the minute.  All Ellie Reynolds wanted was some coffee before her clients start arriving.  She hadn’t expected Atlanta’s most eligible shifter bachelor to show up and piss her off with an outrageous offer.  Ellie’s rant is quickly silenced by the sound of gunfire and she winds up on the run for her life.

Jackson Lawrence didn’t mean to bring danger to Ellie’s doorstep, but that’s exactly what happened.  Because of his work, Jackson had become wanted by people who would cross the line to get what they wanted.  He had to keep Ellie safe, even though she wasn’t too thrilled about being stuck with him.  As far as Jackson was concerned, he wouldn’t mind being stuck with Ellie in a few more positions, especially if it involved a bed. 

I love the play on words in Shift Happens, the first book of the I Heart Shifters series.  The story is a great example of how things snowball and life can change in a second.  Ellie presents herself as an average girl, but she’s so much more than that.  She has spunk and a secret that makes her who she is.  Jackson calls her on it and helps her become comfortable in her own skin, thus being able to accept the fact that he finds her desirable and wants something long term with her.  Their story has a balanced blend of danger and heat that readers will eat up like a midnight snack.
