To save his love he must face his monster and—worse—be nice to people.

Solitary Shifters, Book 3

Montag is a monster. He doesn’t know what sort of creature he would turn into if he ever let himself shift, but he knows it’s something predatory and lethal. He fights back the urge to shift every day of his life, and has never dared get close to anyone—not that they want him to. He can literally smell their fear.

Kevin’s not scared of monsters. He works for the SSU, the agency in charge of tracking shifters—particularly the dangerous ones. When he and his young niece are kidnapped by her scum-bucket dad, he’s grateful to be rescued by Montag, whose curmudgeonly defenses can’t hide the kind man beneath.

As they work together to protect Kevin’s niece, attraction sizzles between them. But their relationship may not survive if Montag learns who writes Kevin’s paycheck—or if Montag dares to confront the inner monster he hates and fears.

Product Warnings
Contains a grouchy virgin shifter (and we mean virginal in all possible ways), a hero with a back pocket full of secrets, and a couple of jerks.

Teresa’s View:

Releasing the Shifter is book three in the Solitary Shifter series. I really recommend reading at least book two before reading this as there isn’t a lot of world building in regards to the shifters and what they are. The world is unique though, among all those shifter novels out there. There are no packs, no fated mates, and no alphas. There is prejudice and danger however.

Montag fears himself as much as others do and it takes rescuing Kevin and his niece for him to start to face his shifter side. Although there was insta-lust, and love came close on its heels, I believed the connection. The emotional situation brought forth the feelings and helped to make these two fit.

It was an easy story overall: a little action, a little drama, a little love making. In fact it was quite light on the sex though the one or two scenes it did have were nice. I enjoyed seeing Colt from book two make an appearance and I enjoyed Shelly, Montag’s friend, and the sheriff as supporting characters.
If you want something nice, not too sweet, and a little different, try this series.
