I received an arc copy of this book for review. This is a first time author for me and I will have to go over and read the other two books in this series. But this book can be read out of order. I found it an interesting book and would recommend this author to anyone who likes shifter romances.

Action packed, it will keep you glued to the pages wondering how Eden & Xander will survive. Will prejudice prevale? They will get help from the most unexpected sources. Your left rooting for Xander & Eden to catch a break and the bad guys to get what's coming to them. There's a great lead in to the next book too. Great read. I received an ARC copy for an honest review.

Review for OFF LIMITS by Bethany Shaw
I received this as a gift for an honest review
I have found Bethany Shaw’s stories to be both engaging and nail biting good. Love her style and storylines.
What starts out as a quiet day of watching movies, ends up as a kidnapping for Xander and Eden. Xander is a wolf shifter and Eden is part shifter, part human and unable to shift. That makes her on outsider in both worlds. It also means she needs to be protected from the shifters who do not want a half breed

Off Limits is exquisitely written and breathtakingly captivating in its exploration of a love so full of power and promise that it cannot be denied. This was a story full of danger and hate that was permeated with a fierce yet gentle love that tirelessly worked to bring two beautiful people together. Theirs was a connection that couldn’t be denied for long without ripping them apart from the inside out.

When Ms. Shaw decided to write this book I think she wanted to make sure she wrote about Betrayal, Prejudice, Fear, Hate, Rage and of course Love.
Eden was a half human and half wolf and that was what was wrong, she could not shift so Eden was shunned and ignored there noses so far up, Eden was used to this kind of life. And for that the Wolves of Sanctuary a safe haven

Off Limits by author Bethany Shaw is a fast paced but steamy read. I found myself really loving Eden our Halfling. Everyone in her life has told her being half shifter, and half human makes her weak, but she is anything but weak. She is a strong independent woman with a mind of her own. She tries twice as hard to prove she is just as good as any shifter out there. I liked her spirit. She is a loyal loving friend you would want on your side in a fight.

Eden doesn't fit in the human world or in the pack she doesn't have any friends besides Xander and her brother. Eden wants Xavier but doesn't think he wants her in the same way. The Hunters are a danger to all packs and weres so Xavier is there to protect her in case they come since she doesn't live Sanctuary.
Xavier can't have Eden for a mate but he can't let anyone else claim her either. If he claims her she's as good as dead and he can't allow that to happen to her.

Bethany Shaw brings us into world the world of the shifters where it wasn't just wolf shifters she had bear shifters, panther shifters and their world is not perfect and for one half shifter who could not shift Eden is her name, it seems like everyone hated her and was against her for what she was.

Really good! Wow my first reading a book by Bethany Shaw. I'm impressed. It's in depth, great storyline and characters with lots of twist and surprises.
It only seemed a little pushed/tossed into the story at the beginning for me because I didn't read the other two book lol. Still I found it to be easy to follow and fun. It also covered "their" story enough for me to consider it a stand alone type of book with the wild cliffhangers some books have but it left room at the end for the author to cat

I cannot hate any book that comes from Bethany. It isn't possible not to love what she writes. Believe me when I say it since I've read most of her work so far.

This book had me clinging to the words from the beginning and I couldn't wait to get to the next part until I finally got to the end. Then I wanted to keep reading it from the beginning.

A beautiful, and action filled story that I personally think is one of my very favorite. I loved Xander. He was so damn fine and amazing. And stubborn.

I am happily married to my husband of almost nine years and have two wonderful children.

I have always loved reading and writing and am thrilled to have published my first novel.

Paranormal romance is my go to genre and the genre I prefer to write in. I love the unique feel of creating an entirely different world and implementing it into the human verse.
