Just when Andy reaches a point where her clothes will only come off if she wants, her world implodes and her self-respect takes a beating. Sure, she is free of Lucien, but, now, she no longer has employment and she seems to have become a pariah in the supernatural law enforcement world. Too bad, because in all of her shifter abilities, she can’t turn into an ATM to pay her bills.
There’s a new drug in town and it is deadly, so when a friend calls for help in solving the crime, she must muster al

The Romance Review

Jobless and free of Master Vampire Lucien, Andy is left adrift. At least she has her feras to keep her company. Oh wait, right, she dispelled one of the main animals in her triad. She is also on the Supernatural Regulatory Division (SRD) shit list. At least Tristan is in her life. He could theoretically support her since he owns a company. He could even possibly find her a job. Oddly though, when they should be drawing closer to each other without the distractions of a master vampire or an a

This is definitely one of those series that you need to start from book one. I think you would be completely lost and not enjoy it much if you tried to jump in anywhere else. The good news is that all the books have been great so far so go pick up your copy of SHIFT HAPPENS today and enjoy the ride.

Andy's personality is a contagious and I always look forward to what she will do next. She is easy to connect with and easy to stand behind. There is still a lot of mystery surrounding everything that

I have read every book in this series and this may well be the best in many ways. The only reason I did not give it 5 Stars is because there are so many questions that can't be answered in this book (and the author still answered a lot of them)

Many things I complained about in previous reviews were taken care of and as always the plot was multi-layered and high quality, the heroine is totally tough.

The love triangle has pretty much been taken care of and she seems to be getting settled into a ne

Okay, I have to say this has been my favorite book in this series. I liked the other three but this one definitely made me want to not stop reading to go to sleep. Even though Andy finally picked between Wick and Tristan she is still taking it slow with the mating. I actually like who she picked and love the chemistry and humor between the two of them. I think my favorite part of this series is how her animals talk to her in regards to mating, killing someone, or just beating up another female. ...more

Argh I loved this and I like Tristan, but I still want Wick more 😂 I love Sid and can’t wait to see where that goes but the next is the last and I’m gonna be sad. This is a great series , you really should read these books

I am a big fan of this series and this book is a great installment. Andy is an awesome character with strengths in the form of her being a shifter, familiarity with the supernatural joined with her weaknesses that take form in her insecurities and issues with emotions. Together they are mixed with her wicked sense of humor and smarts to get to the bottom of stuff. The plot was multi-layered, had an intriguing mystery, vivid and lively characters, and tons of action starring supernatural beings. ...more

I was so excited to start this book, this is one of my favourite series that I have read and this book did not disappoint! Although I absolutely love to read, I am not very good at writing reviews but for this series I figured I would give it a try, I love them that much!! Andy has finally made her choice and is getting some long over due action I think she made a great choice, but am still sad for "the one that got away".... seriously can she not just have both!! She finds herself unemployed bu ...more

Andy is running on empty but a new street drug has the police knocking on her door for assistance and a friend needs help to investigate a messy murder in this exciting Carus novel. Andy’s life is one fascinating mishmash of mayhem and passion and the more secrets she reveals about herself the more fascinated I become but in regards to this story, I wasn’t as enamored of it as I was the previous one, I think it’s probably because this one ended leaving me with a few questions in regards to the e ...more

Go Andy

I am really enjoying this series. Mourning her wolf, but getting close to her leopard alpha. Changing jobs and mending old wounds is hard for a super shifter who is no longer tied to the vampires or the wolves. But someone else is gunning for power and Andy is up to the job.

Shift Work ,(Carus Series 4), J.C. McKenzie 
 
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  , Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance.

 I love this series, and have been lucky enough to read these last three books fairly close together so the story really flows for me.

Andy is still trying to find out more about her Carus heritage. Feradea told her a little more in the last book, but as is always the way with people like that its never clear and unambiguous, but cloaked into smoke and mirrors...She’s still

Adventure…Mystery…Love
Another awesome, shifter story from J.C. McKenzie, filled with adventure, mystery and love. With her books you get to expect the unexpected. Tristan’s secret threatens to destroy Andy and their relationship as she helps a friend find a murderer. Gripping conflict. But what I like best about the Carus series is the witty-edged dialogue. Andy McNeilly is a badass heroine who says what she thinks.
My favorite three lines (sorry I couldn’t stop at one) are:

Good read

I liked thus story, although out wasn't as thrilling and exciting as the others. I did mass Wick. Although I like Tristan, I still had hope Andy would had chosen Wick. I liked her bond with him more than her bond with Tristan. I wasn't a fan of the vampires and how they had power to control others against their will. It was nice to know Andy was free of Lucian. But now she has to deal with the demon. Andy is sure special and one of a kind. She seems to have a way with men not realizing

Oh my!

Okay so I love this author and I adore this series but I have to admit this books was very hard for me. It took Andy to a place I didn't like and with someone other than who she SHOULD be with. Like the others in the series it was snarky and kept me laughing with Andy's lovely personality and crying for Stan's loss but it ended with me upset...yet driven to read the next one.

"They're sentence enhancers, not swear words." Andy McMeilly Here in book four Andy tries to move on with her life and choices. She is investigating some nasty murders, and discovers someone from her past is ready to use her as a play toy again. I am enjoying the banter of the different animals in her head. This whole series so far is quite descriptive when it comes to scents for emotions. I was given this story for an honest review and this is mine.

Shift Work was the 4th book in the series Carus by J. C. McKenzie. I had not read the previous 3 books and felt slightly at a disadvantage. Shifter Andy Mcneilly loses her job with the SRD (Supernatural Regulatory Division). She also tries to deal with her missing friends, two deaths if people she knows, get a new job and commit to a relationship even though her boyfriend has a secret life. This book is set in Vancover Canada present day. The story was entertaining and held my interest.

What starts out as a typical shape-shifter novel becomes an exceptional one as the characters are introduced.

Read full review in the 2016 April issue of InD'tale Magazine.
