Just 3 relatively easy to read stars.

After really thinking about it I was able to pinpoint why I only kind of liked this story rater than loving it. The writing style wasn't really the issue but the plotting of the story and execution of the plot is what I found lacking. I wanted more development between Jace and Fiona, Fiona to not be an idiot and for there to be more clarity in the relationship. I get that shifters don't necessarily operate the same way humans do but there still needs to be s

I finished this in single sitting - it is that short. I picked this up solely based on cover. It is that beautiful - this is what we have in netgalley, which IMO is stunningly beautiful!

One that is shown in Goodreads sucks! May be it will be updated later.

Story wise - this is pretty fast paced, like too fast paced. There is very less character buildup or setup for the matter and we have all kinds of shifters thrown in the story. Human

I must admit that I longer search pictures for the review then read the book.
It's short, funny read about shifters first love.
There is no some big surprise. What you read in blurb you get.

Jace Blackmore - Hot Bear shifter

I think this is an awesome debut by a paranormal romance author. A complete HEA in 15k words that introduces you to other characters in the shifter clan, with promises to expand on other characters in future series books. (And yes, I happened to write it). :)

Jace is an abused by his step father. After his mother passes away he runs away. He is rescued by Finn who takes him to live in Pepper Valley. Pepper Valley is a town of shifters, vampires and many other creatures that go bump in the night. It doesn't bother Jace because he is also a shifter. Jace begins to live with Jace and his family. Jace has a daughter named Fiona. She is young when they first meet but she has the biggest crush on Jace. Jace only sees her as a friend until he comes

Shifted for Love can be categorized in one word: sweet. Sweet are the characters and sweet is their story. That is, if they have been stayed for a second to think what life offered to them and to talk about it. Our lovers had all their problems solved, but some people have the habit to complicate things for themselves and the good intentions will jeopardize the wanted HEA (and here I could say that, in my opinion, it should have been needed a more “visible” reason for Fi’s decision).

As expected,

Fiona’s father had wanted to bring close ties to another pack so he promised his daughter to one of their pack members. Fiona found out on her 16th birthday. How could she mate with the man like Zane. How could she mate with anyone but Jace. Zane made her skin crawl.

Jace who had not only physical scars but had inward scars as well. He felt unworthy to be Fiona’s mate. It is almost funny. They had been attracted for so long and then their animals decided to take over and claim each other. Fiona w

A solid start to this shifter series.

Jace is broken and on the run from an abusive home when he stumbles across the Scott family. Fiona immediately falls for the older boy, but it takes a few years for Jace to start to notice her, thinking of her more as a sister after being taken in by her family.

I wasn't excited about Finn (Fiona's father) as he seems like a bit of a weak alpha. His arranging a mating for Fiona to a complete jackass didn't really endear me to him either.

C.A. Tibbitts touches your heart with this heart pounding love story between two shifters. This short story is both thrilling, and entertaining. There was no putting this book down.

I have never read anything like this before. Everything fell together so well. The characters were very well built, and easy to like. The book had me from page one, to the very end. I was so satisfied with this story that I found

I absolutely adored this lovely little shifter novella! Made for a nice read if you weren't in the mood for something that's time consuming! It draws you in and leaves you wanting more. I don't always have time to devote to a full length novel, so it was something great to pick up while I had a few extra moments here and there. And I absolutely loved how they "mate". It's such a neat concept! I hope to see more come from such a promising author. :-)

I really enjoyed this short story, it was very well written . Once I started reading I couldn't stop I had to know what was going to happen. I would definitely recommend this book to all paranormal, shifter fans. And I will look forward to reading other books in this series.

This is a novella and a short read, but full of goodness. I haven’t read a shifter book in a while and it was refreshing to do so again.

15 year old Jace fled an abusive home and landed in Finn’s territory. Finn was the clad leader. His 14 year old daughter Fiona had an immediate crush on Jace. With Jace not having any other family than the one he left behind, Finn took him under his wing. Finn gave him a place to live, a job in his diner, and helped Jace get an education.

Two years later, Fiona

I was given a copy of this book in return for a true & honest review

This novella was a very nice introduction to what promises to be a great shifter series! My one wish was that this book had instead been closer to a full length novel. The sweet story of two young shifters for me past too quickly and I would have loved to have delved deeper into both Jace and Fiona's stories. The novella was fast paced and resolved with no cliff hangers.

This novella is great beginning to this series. It not only introduced you several characters, but gave enough information about those characters to leave you wanting to know more about them. There was A LOT of drama in this book and it kept me turning the pages.

Shifted for Love is a fast-paced paranormal romance. Full of suspense, passion, and humor, everything a great book needs. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, but wished there was more. Everything happened very quickly. Characters came in fast and you really didn't get to know them well enough. But I love Jace and Fiona.

This is book #1 in The Pepper Valley Shifters Series by C.A. Tibbetts. What I liked is that it can be read as a stand alone book, but, it is part of a series. When Jace first comes to Pepper Valley, he is 15 years old and has been physically and emotionally abused by his stepfather. He runs away and is rescued by Finn, the Alpha of the shifters residing in Pepper Valley. Finn has a young daughter, Fiona, who is instantly smitten with Jace.

After the death of his mother, Jace takes off, not wanting to endure anymore abuse from his stepfather. The stepfather loathes Jace, because he is a shifter, a man that can change into a bear when needed. He runs into a man named Finn, who offers Jace a place to live with him and his daughter Fiona in a cabin on top of a hill and also runs a local bar and restaurant. The only thing Finn asks of Jace is that he works and goes to school. At Fiona's 16th birthday, Finn announces that Fiona has to m ...more
Short and sweet. A new twist on a shifter romance. 3.5 stars out of 5.

Jace moved in with Fiona's family when she was 14. She lusted for him from the first moment she set eyes on him. The problem was he looked at her as a friend. Her dad decides to set her up with an arranged marriage to a shifter she's never met. From the minute she laid eyes on him she could see through his act and doesn't fall for his charm. She wants Jace. But life's not always that straight forward.

I usually don't read paranormals, but I will try it when the author is really passionate about the story and captures my interest when talking about it. C.A. did that immediately for me. I will warn you though - this is an introduction to the town, the characters, the background of many of the main's going to get you interested and then end. You need to know going into reading this that it is a brief introduction to everyone. For me, that was a bit frustrating because I wanted to ...more

Jace and Fiona is a rollercoaster romance! Jace is a wounded man but if he allows it, Fiona can heal him. I loved the fast pace romance of this book. The author followed every aspect and left nothing hanging, I enjoy that. She showed the strength and determination of Fiona, Jace finally got his head on straight, and I was chuckling when the tables were turned on him.

A great start to a new series. In this book you're introduced to Jace and Fiona and other characters in their town. Jace is welcomed to Fiona's home as a kid and they become friends and then as adults fall for each other. After twists and turns they do end up together and during this time you meet other characters and get a hint of what is possibly coming in future books of the series.

Fiona, watch out for this one! She is a redhead with more attitude then all of Congress. Fiona meets Jace, a bear shifter whose has been harmed both emotionally and physically by those he loves. And when these two meet, Pepper Valley, and many of those attached to will never be the same.

Throw in the DEA, Fi's dad, other shifters, and you have some great drama, with love, jealousy, and fear.

I liked this short story, or novella, and can barely wait for the next one.

Please, read this book.

C.A. Tibbitts' The Pepper Valley Shifters is a paranormal romance series. After reading all of the books in this series I feel like the story just gets better and better with each new book and Star Crossed Shifters (book 4) was the best one yet.

We can’t forget about our Pepper Valley Villain, Alexander Adams, in book 4, he is back at it again and this time he has captured their Alpha, Finley Scott. Can the Pepper Valley clan fin ...more

Shifted For Love is an enjoyable read. It spans about ten years in the lives of Jace and Fiona. Jace has a checkered past which makes it difficult for him to accept the love and devotion of another person. Fiona is a spit-fire of a female protagonist who's willing to speak her mind but not necessarily sit around and wait for Jace to get it together. Will they work through everything and find their way to happily-ever-after? The answers await you in this delightful tale.
