Nothing in Shelby Carson’s life is ordinary. Not only is she an attending psychiatrist in a hectic ER, but she’s also a Wrasa, a shape-shifter who leads a secret existence.

To make things even more complicated, she has feelings for Nyla Rozakis, a human nurse.

Even though the Wrasa forbid relationships with humans, Shelby is determined to pursue Nyla. Things seem pretty hope

This is my 22nd work that I’ve read by Jae. Something like the 9th short story (though I do not always remember to include that shelf). This is also the last story in the Shape-Shifter series that I had not yet read. This might be the only Jae series where I’ve actually read everything in it. Every novel length work, every short story length work.

Right, so – Shelby Carson is a psychologist who works in the psych ward at an ER in New York. Or works in an ER deal with psych patients. One, the othe
4 stars
This was a re-read. I first read this novella a few years ago. It follows the romance between Nyla, a human nurse and Shelby a Wrasa coyote shape-shifter who works with Nyla in a human ER as a psychiatrist. Only Shelby is an outsider in both worlds. Not a human and a shapeshifter who cannot shift. It would be 5 stars if it only it mentioned how Shelby's pack accepted the relationship. But I guess Jae wanted to keep it short? A pleasant read in Jae's shapeshifter series.

Ein großes Problem mit den Geschichten von Jae ist die mangelnde Konstanz was deutsche Versionen angeht. Während es (bis auf 2 Ausnahmen, wenn ich das richtig gesehen habe) alle Titel der deutschen Autorin auf Englisch gibt, gibt es vieles eben nur auf Englisch und nicht auf Deutsch. Das ist gerade dann überaus ärgerlich, wenn es sich um eine der beiden größeren losen Serien der Autorin handelt. „Vollmond über Manhat
4.5 stars.

This is a great bonus story that takes place after 'Second Nature' and before 'True Nature'. I would not consider this a standalone story because the laws and world of the Wrasa (i.e. the shapeshifters) are too complex to fit into this short story/novela and may leave the reader feeling like they've been in a hit and run when the rules come up but aren't explained in depth.

What is easy to grasp, though, is the romantic arc of the book. The two characters here Shelby and Nyla, one Wrasa

Typical Jae

This is a fantastically well written short story that despite being entwined with her other 'shifter' novels can be read and enjoyed as a strand alone.
3.5 Stars

Manhattan Moon follows the romance between Shelby and Nyla - a Wrasa psychiatrist and human nurse living in Manhattan. It's nice to see that Jae is still working in this universe - Second Nature was a great book - but be warned that this is a short novella (believe it or not, Jae can write under 400 pages! :) ) Despite Griffin and Jorie, it is still forbidden for Wrasa to have significant relationships with humans, but Shelby is unable to resist the devloping relationship. The story giv

Yay More!

I really love series that focus on other characters from the same story line. This short novel is another part of Jae's Shifter series. We again meet Dr Shelby, a coyote shifter, and her human lover from the book True Nature. This is the story of how they meet and fall for each other. Jae took me on a journey allowing me to watch these women fall in love and defy the Council. The writing and character development in this book is flawless. I really adored the plot. The characters were j

I'm a great fan of books by Jae, but this is the first of her shape-shifting world. I am a fan of this genre and was looking forward to reading this novella. I really enjoyed it, the build up of the relationship between Shelby and Nyla is just right, and you can feel it coming from the pages. The only thing I would say it that it ends abruptly. The story does not seem to come to a close, there are chapters missing. What's there is good, but it needs to be finished. 3.5 stars.

A quick read in The Shape-Shifter Series unvierse and this is a love story in all senses of the term.

Expect a beautiful and sweet short story with classic 'squealing moments' that fit within the premise. Forbidden love has always been a guilty pleasure of mine and Jae writes it best. Who doesn't love the age old wooing between two people with an undeniable attraction for each other and who are not supposed to be together?

I know I do.

Overall a good story, but a few loose ends..

The story was good but there were a few loose ends - I won't mention details (don't want to spoil it). In my opinion the story could've been developed better if it had been a longer book where it could have been fleshed out more and those loose ends tied.

I'm hooked. Well and truly. Jae's shape shifter novels are both compelling and addictive. Jae's writing style is fun and easy to follow. Also her style is humorous but her novels are serious. I'm seriously addicted. Her imagination is out of this world. I definitely vote for more.

It’s a short book. Only 95 pages. Jay writes in an efficient way : her characters are lively and she immerses us quickly in their lives. But when closing the book, we are a little bit disappointed ‘cause it seems almost unfinished.
Pleasant but not really unforgettable.

She works as a psychologist and likes to spend her time reading, cooking, and watching too many crime shows.
