Jason is a West Coast wolf Shifter who leaves his native Pack Lands to search for his destined mate. When he finds the large muscled man working out a local gym, Jason is ecstatic and apprehensive. Eric is a Changeless human and there are tense sides to the politically heated debate around the integration of Shifters and Changeless. Jason is at risk of losing control of his wolf without bonding with his destined mate. But, will Eric accept that Jason is a Shifter? And can Eric trust Jason after his heart has been left shattered from a previously failed relationship?

Shifter stories and I have a bit of a love/hate relationship. I used to refuse to read them, but I have read some pretty fabulous ones since I finally relented. Unfortunately, more often than not the ones I come across I can only describe as mediocre. They aren’t bad, per say, but they don’t grip me. The don’t keep me coming back for more.
Shifting Weight by Tina Blenke certainly fits this latter category. It is an enjoyable look at one wolf shifter’s attempt to find his fated mate. From the blurb, I was expecting a little more angst. If you are looking for the main character that has to fight for his man, this is not the book for you. There was absolutely no conflict, other than the brief and very minor conflict created from the main character’s fears of acceptance.
The other aspect that I felt kept this story from its full potential was the simplistic writing style. It wasn’t quite what I term the “see spot run” style of writing, but it wasn’t terribly far removed, either. I felt like I was reading something from my seven-year-old’s library with a slightly more mature content, of course.
If you are looking for a light and easy read and can’t get enough shifters in your life, you might want to give this one a try.
I would like to thank the author for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
