Life lesson number one: Never anger a powerful witch.

Too bad Dimitri Sullivan didn’t know the beautiful redhead he met at a bar, bedded, and skipped out on was a witch—let alone a psychotic one who turns him into a diseased-ridden, flea-bitten, house cat; the complete antecedent to his predominate wolf form.

Abby, like most humans, knows nothing about the supernatural worl

Shifter was an enjoyable read! The story's premise of a guy being turned into a housecat is what lured me in...I was already laughing. The book had a lot of interesting characters, and crazy/bad characters - like Mave - are always entertaining (Nothing like a hot, but psycho stalker witch, right)? I got a feel for and liked Abby, and Demitri - who made a rather cool Maine Coon, when he wasn't one big, hot human shifter - lol.
As the story progressed, Abby became a stronger, more forceful person,

I honestly love paranormal romance... I love that it just absorbs you into a non-reality that is so much fun.

This starts with Abby and Dimitri. Abby is an overly self conscious woman who comes from a past very abusive relationship (so her self doubt is completely understandable). Dimitri is a gorgeous shifter who ends up bedding a witch who is beyond ANGRY that he didn't fall in love with her, or even call for that matter! ;)

There's twists and turns, Mave (the sly witch) creates so much trouble

I love stories like this.

Regular guy has a one night stand.
That comes back to bite him a month later.
Or rather, curse him.

See, he ticked off a pretty powerful witch. Now he's a cat, and sent off to a shelter.

Abby is in the mood to add a second cat to her home. She goes to the shelter and finds this adorable one that happened to be dropped off that morning. If no one claims him, then Abby can keep him.

Told from both perspectives of both Dimitri and Abby, this book tells the story o

I branched out on this one, it was the first book I've read with a shifter as a character. I usually read vamp novels. What I liked about this book is the realistic characters. They had real-life flaws and weren't over the top as characters in these types of books can sometimes be. The viewpoint of Dimitri as a cat and his frustration at being a typical house cat was humorous and very different. I would read more from this author. I think the Sullivan men could have some great stories!
I'm torn about this rating. This book desperately needs an editor. There were several instances of the wrong homonym being used and the book had some structural issues. Normally, that would turn any book into a one-star rating for me. However, I did keep reading. The plot was entertaining, if a bit confusing at times. The fact that I kept reading - in spite of the issues - bumped it up another star.

It's been a while since I've read a shifter story and after finding myself in a book funk I started this with the hope to find something missing in my TBR list of late. What I found was a really enjoyable story and one which was both highly entertaining and memorable.

The synopsis was totally accurate and whilst it made me initially unsure of what to expect (Dimitri as a cat), it worked well and the story captured me right from the beginning.

I thought this was an interesting story with lots to get into. I do feel I would have enjoyed it more if I had read it and not listened to the audio. The author does have a wonderful imagination and the story is believable. I did have a problem with some of the curse words at the beginning and thought this was the way the whole story would be. The author does calm that down which make it a more enjoyable listen. The author gives you a story of a one nightstand where the lady isn't happy with thi ...more

Abby lives alone and is a single cat owner, but today she has an overwhelming urge to adopt another cat. What she comes home with is a Maine Coon kitten who has just arrived at the shelter. The shelter allows her to foster the kitten because they are sure he is just lost and the owners will come looking for him soon.

I wasn't really sure what to expect with this book, I tried one similar before (different author though same kinda idea) and just couldn't get into it so I'll be honest that my expectations weren't huge. I was pleasantly surprised though cause this really was a great read. I found myself hooked from the start and not wanting to put it down for the most part. Dimitri is pretty much the typical alpha, over confident and pushy at times but its tempered with a dry humour that really helps things alo ...more

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Abby is kind of hermit. Though no one can blame her after all that she has been through. She works from home and only goes out to check her mail and run errands. One day she gets the sudden impulse to adopt another cat. Not one prone to follow impulses she is surprised to find herself at a shelter doing just that. Dimitri is a shifter and kind of a player by most standards. One night he messes with the wrong witch and ends up curs ...more

Let me start by saying, the first thing that I was drawn to with this book was the synopsis. It was crazy enough that had me thinking it could possible be a great read. As a fan of paranormal romance, I always read with an open mind and pretty much, anything goes. 

What we have is a stand alone novel involving Dimitri, a shapeshifter, who is cursed by a disgruntled witch and subsequently turned into a domestic cat. Abby, a virtual recluse with serious self esteem issues, goes to the animal shelte

Shifter by Jennifer Reynolds is an incredibly entertaining paranormal romance and Margi Stephens voice brings the book alive as she narrates and changes her tone and voice for each character and specific dialog.
It’s set in the southern U.S. I’m not a native born southerner but have spent twenty five years living in various southern states and found the language and innuendos hilarious. For that reason, it had a Sookie Stackhouse feel to it.

I am giving this review on behalf of Kats Book Promotions/ Katsindiebookblog. This is such a great, yet funny read all in one. Dimitri, your typical guy that is anything but ready to settle down, finally ran into some bad luck being a little player. He ran into a witch that was pretty upset with the outcome of their night so she cast him into a cat and dropped him off at a local shelter. Abby has had her share of back luck so she has basically become a hermit to her own house, and once in awhile ...more

Dimitri, out celebrating with his pack, picks up a witch and has a VERY enjoyable night. Pity he didn't check on her mental stability before hand!! The witch, Mave reads more into their one night stand and does not cope well with her rejection and she turns Dimitri into a cat. Leaving him as a mangy moggy at the pound, she hopes he'll be destroyed. With the tiny bit of magic left to him he turns himself into a Maine Coon cat, a pedigree, hoping to be rescued.

Abby, an emotional and physical abuse

Awesome story! I really loved it!
Loved the characters, even if one was a cat, lol! Of course he is not a cat by choice, Dimitri, one of the main characters gets turned into a cat when he screws up with a witch that is a bit on the crazy side. Dimitri is a shifter but because he is cursed by the crazy witch he cannot unshift out of being a cat but he did have enough power to make himself a better looking cat, one that is a pure breed and he gets adopted by Abby, then the story really begins.

Even though he hisses at her and the shelter is not sure if an owner will come forward she lets Abby take the cat home with her on a temporary basis.

Shifter by Jennifer Reynolds

Never Tell a Witch You'll Call and Then Don't!

Shifter is the second novel by Jennifer Reynolds. It's a delightful paranormal romance told from the perspectives of Dimitri, a shifter, who after a drunken one night stand with a witch who he immediately forgot about the following morning and never called back, finds himself cursed into cat form and left at a shelter and of Abby, a human, who is recovering from an abusive relationship and tends to isolate h
Book Worms  United
Abby was in an abusive relationship that left her with very low self esteem, extremely self conscious and uncomfortable in her own skin. And also with a lot of hangups when it comes to men. My question all the way through the book was, will she be able to get over it enough to believe him when he finally tells her that he loves her? A fun, but emotional story, Shifter will have you hooked until the very end... and leave you wanting more. I would say this is a must read.

I really enjoyed Shifter by Jennifer Lynn Reynolds! "Life lesson number one: Never anger a powerful witch." Isn't this the truth! Dmitri Sullivan really p*ssed off a witch and she turned him into a mangy & flea-bitten old house cat. Dimitri can't change from being a cat but, he did change himself into a Maine Coon a pedigreed cat!

The witch, Mave is pissed and well a little nuts and turns Dimitri into a cat.

She finds him a month later and she is beyond mad that she hasn't heard from him since the one-night stand he barely remembers. She is a powerful witch and since he is a shifter (wolf) she turns him into a little flea-bitten kitten and drops him off at the pound.
