Review: Shifter's Claim
Shifter's Claim by A.C. Arthur
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
While I haven't read all of this series, I think that it is easy enough to pick up at any point and catch up rather quickly. The shadow shifter world is a really unique and interesting combination of action/adventure and yummy romance. Oh, and it's also really hot and steamy.
Priya has made an appearance in other installments. She's seen little hints here and there about the shadow shifters and it made her the perfect target for blackmail in exchange for exposing these "cat people" to the world. This determined reporter has strong family ties that made it relatively easy for her to be manipulated and led her to a very sexy run-in with Bas. To the world, Bas is a womanizing millionaire playboy with a growing resort empore. His personal life revolves around being Faction Leader for his territory and trying to keep as isolated as possible. Some big mistakes in his past have left him with more than a few walls around his heart that he has very little desire to work on any time soon. Priya is the unpredictable element that throws all of his plans out the window. They crash into one another and, though they are both determined to fight it, find staying apart nearly impossible.
The chemistry between Bas and Priya scorches the pages of this book. When they come together, it's like fireworks going off. For me, it was the absolute perfect balance of sexy times and plot development. There were twists and turns, compromises and controversy, and really tough character choices. I can't wait to see where this series is headed next!
