Sometimes even a small decision can change your life.

Jamie is a normal guy with a normal, if not boring, life. Everything changes when he goes camping and stumbles on a well-guarded secret in the woods: shifters exists! It opens a whole new world to him, a world he wouldn’t have thought possible outside a novel, and he has to decide if Ward is worth the changes that are tu

Oh yes, I can't wait to reread the other ones again. So much hurt/comfort in this series.

3.5 stars

Yay, a new shifter series I like!

This was better than I expected.
Sure, the writing lacked a little emotion every now and then, but overall I enjoyed it.

Jamie is out camping when he sees a panther, a cougar and a lion playing together. Just when he thinks how weird that is, he sees the panther changing into a man. He gets scared so he runs away. Jamie is lucky

Nice story. But unfortunately the chemistry between them is just so-so. For shifter books I need them to be more combustible.

Happy day for me to find a huge series of new (to me) shifter books! And they are mostly cat shifters which I adore thanks to Charlie Cochet.

These books seem a little short which makes for a quick read. They have all the instalove and mine mine mine that I look forward to in a shifter book. They aren't super deep so far. I think that's to be expected in novellas, but rounding out the universe will probably come in future books.

Best shifter books ever? Nah. But this one was good, there are lots

This was a short quick read that I liked it was a the first book in the "Whitedell Pride" series. Jaime decides to go camping by himself to get away and think his ex-boyfriend Colin of 4 years cheated on him with a girl and got her pregnant so he breaks up with him. Ward is a leopard shifter who is playing in the woods with two of his friends in cat form when they come across Jaime who is human after Jaime runs away Ward and Bryce goes to his apartment to explain somethings to him.

This is a shifter story with predominantly feline shifters, though there are other hidden paranormals in this world. This is not an insta-love story for the folks bothered by that. The human MC is recently out of a long-term relationship, so he's not ready to accept a permanent mating no matter how appealing the black leopard shifter is. We aren't witness to all the courtship, but Ward spends about two months dating his mate, Jamie.

I enjoyed both Jamie and Ward. I always love it when one of the

Despite my enthusiasm going into this book (hot shifters + manlove), the execution of it left me more than a little disappointed.

Right off the back, it was clear that the author loves reading paranormal romance. I mean, how else do you explain the story beginning with not so savvy camper Colin (24yo and recently dumped) consoling himself in the woods of Wyoming when he stumbles upon large and sexy Ward (75yo a

After a bad breakup, Jamie decides to go camping in the woods on his own. Without a car. If that sounds strange to you, I understand since I don't quite get it either. Anyways, he is stranded until his brother Keenan picks him up the next day. During the night he hears some animal sounds and decides to investigate. Again, if you think this is odd behavior, I'm with you. As even his brother points out, in horror movies

Twenty-four year old Jamie Ellis has just ended a four year relationship with his cheating ex and as a sort of comfort/vacation/break for himself he goes on a camping trip. It's not a very successful one since he forgets to bring along food and is caught in a storm. But it really gets worse (or better, it's all about opinions here people!) when he comes across a lion, cougar and black leopard. Things gets a bit more complicated

Jamie is human and recovering from a difficult break up. Unbeknownst to him, he is shifter Ward's mate. Jamie stumbles across the shifters whilst out camping, immediately abandoning his campsite and returning home in a panic with shifters in hot pursuit. Once their paths cross, Ward quickly recognises their connection and sets about wooing Jamie.

I liked this book .. it was cute. . not mind blowing but cute. Ward meets his mate Jamie after Jamie catches ward and his friends mid-shift.
Jamie eventually gets kidnapped by a shifter experimenting lab. I actually wish ward had been the one kidnapped bc Jamie being taken didn't really make sense. It would have made more sense and been more interesting had ward been kidnapped instead bc he was actually a shifter. And instead of Jamie having his come to Jesus moment in a lab he could have had it

I'm having a hard time with this review so I will begin by answering a question or two....

Will I read book 2 of this series? Yes, more than likely.
Were the characters likable? Yes, for the most part.

Nice start to a series that I think I might just have to follow, I'd liked to see how things turn out for some of our side characters in this one.

With PNR you automatically suspend reality (which is my reason for reading) but a lot of times I've seen authors throw common sense right out the window. That doesn't happen in Jamie, thank goodness. Yes Ward identifies Jamie as is mate right from the start but they don't dive nose deep into insta-love. Part of the reason for that is Jamie is gun shy s

I believe this is a first time author read for me. Fairly solid read for the most part for me. Being put on hold for claiming due to the human factor is nice change from the normal get it on and over with that's the norm nowadays.

The events after Jamie's kidnapping... felt too..soft,convenient, bland? Besides a minor incident, he is basically left alone, which just seemed too good to be true to me. OH and the rescue ended up being way to easy. Not to mention one of the other shifter's reactions

.... MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS.........
Okay, initially, I was loving this storyline. Jamie (human) finds out that there are animal shifters of many different species, and that, Ward (big cat), was his mate. Jamie had a brother, Keenan, who was just totally adorable. He was so, chill, sweet, funny, curious, and trusting. He was my favorite character. I was laughing so much while reading his scenes, which had me deciding right then and there that I was going to continue on through this whole series.

Rounding up

Nice book when you don't want to think to hard.
Nothing really stands out.
It was nice that they didn't instantly fall in love. Jamie made him work for it.
I lost track of time at some point. They mentioned it had been 2 months, and it didn't seem like that much time had passed.

A lot of things were just to easy. The set up, that starts the ball rolling was to easy.
Jamie and his brother were to accepting to fast.
The big bad drama, to easy.

I liked this book. But I also kind of didn't.

The basic plot was okay. It's quite generic; you can see these sentiments being echoed by many of the other reviews this book has gotten. Like I said, the plot is basic. Too basic. If you've read a shifter story before, then you already have a rough idea of how this is going to unfold.

The characters are okay enough, if not a bit bland: Jamie, the MC, is a sensible man, and he's a romantic, which

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

When I first started reading this book, I have to admit that I wasn't in love with it. The writing felt a little choppy to me and I felt like I was being told what was going on rather than feeling it with the characters. As the story progressed though, I found this to be less of an issue and I fell for the characters.

So I stumbled upon these after reading another Charlie Richards book and realized this is another series involving shifters and their fated mates...



Unfortunately, Leivens' writing tends to lack a bit of Richards' charm. Don't get me wrong, they're enjoyable, but they really start to lose steam quickly, so while I've read more than fifty of Richards' books, I've read five of Lievens', and I'm not sure I care whether or not I read any more.

On top of all that, these all seem like they were run th
