This story is one of mystery and secrecy, and it pulled me in as I got to know Ash, the sheriff, and his former friend, Darius. The suspicion around Darius and the murder he allegedly committed five years earlier was quite compelling. Everything seemed to point at him as being the guilty man, yet there was an underlying feeling that I shared with Ash which told me it would be too easy if it had been Darius. No real evidence was forthcoming, though, so the suspense was definitely there.

The story was solid and enjoyable enough. I liked both main characters. Darius was the bad, attractive character with charisma and Ash was just the right person for him. The story is simple and good.

I read this book in one sitting. I can not believe how fast the reading went and it left me wanting more.
I liked the characters especially Sheriff Ashton Rawling, go small town sheriffs :) Darius seemed to be more of a secondary character with Ashton being the protagonist.
I liked the murder mystery. I admit to guessing the wrong guy.
When it was revealed who committed the murder, I realized that I 'should have' guessed the other one.
But in my defense, I was so engrossed in Ashton and Darius rel

A too different shifter's story to my liking.
In this one they don't embrace their shapeshifting, it's considered a curse and they don't remember a thing done while in their werewolf form.

No mates pull.

Nicely written, though.

This was a pleasant read if in the mood for a combined shifter and mystery plot. The story was linear and set the background nicely for the following books in this series.

Entirely different from other werewolf stories that I have read.
Very enjoyable, I'm looking forward for the rest of the series.
