Drew’s life sucks. Saving money to escape his homophobic family is one thing, but his only paying gig at the moment is playing his father’s “only gay in the village” plus-one to every LGBT friendly business event.

Then his brother comes up with a plan. Sheffield needs someone to go undercover for his police investigation. Drew has all the qualifications: he’s gay, he has

A great start to the series! This shifter story was refreshing because it was so different.

The pull between Drew and Rylee was strong and intense. The author built up the thick sexual tension between the two guys perfectly.

The five stages of transformation felt rushed and I got a little confused at one point.

The events towards the end left me in tears. The author captured those painful moments vividly. Drew’s state of mind during his ordeal broke my heart because he was willing to do whatever

Thanks to NetGalley for the complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

This story was surprising and unexpected. It starts out as a contemporary mystery and turned quickly into a sci-fi fantasy direction. The main characters were fully formed and had great chemistry. It was interesting to see the character quirks of all the different guys in the frat house. Even when the fantasy elements came out, they made sense in the context of the story. And it was gruesome, but well written how

"A Mysterious, Emotional, Heart-Warming, and Hopeful Read"

An absolutely gripping, fascinating, heartbreaking, emotional, incredibly hopeful story has taken me by storm and I absolutely loved it. It is a story that has a little bit of everything to make it a recommended read for those who enjoy stories with mystery, romance, and..heart-wrenching moments, all with a dusting of Paranormal set within such an incredible storyline. This story certainly kept me on the edge-of-my-seat throughout the

A refreshingly different take on the two natured. This story is built on the premise that earth is a sanctuary for LGBT shifters from a place called Vihaan that forbids same-sex relationships. Drew is angsty as heck but he has reason to be. It took me a bit to warm up to Rylee but eventually he one me over. This is a terrific start to a new series. I love the world building and am looking forward to more adventures Surviving Vihaan.

oh this was a fun start to a new series.. i love shifters.. i love paranormal and i loved this.. the writing was amazing.. the story was so much fun.. and the plot kept me on the edge of my seat curious to see what would come next. loved it
I would rate this 2.5 stars.

When cops can't get undercover in the LGBT frat house, Sheffield taps his brother Drew to help the police on their exotic animal smuggling case because he has a degree in animal psychology, specialising in felines...which the reader only finds out about later. Drew poses as someone in need of shelter, which the frat is know to help LGBT students with. This get weird, intense, and sexual right away with how Rylee acts when Drew arrives. What the reader is shown and
When this novel opens, Drew is sick of pretty much everything. He's tired of trying to live up to the standards of his family. His father isn't supportive of Drew being Gay...unless, of course, there's an important business event that requires a show. His brother? Same story. But when Drew's brother requests his help with a case in a frat house that may be trading in exotic cats, Drew signs up. He's always had an interest in animals in spite of his father disapproving, and this will get him out ...more

Disclaimer : I received an ARC of this book in exchange of an honest review.

This book was unexpected, unfortunately not in the best way possible. I read paranormal romances or romances in general to put me in a good mood, to read a love story where I know for a fact that my OTP (one true pairing) will end up together.
I went into this novel not knowing much about it which did make it a lot better than it would've been otherwise.
I loved Drew and how he is willing to do anything to keep his

This unfortunately didn't work at all for me.

The plot interested me, but the rest just felt awkward.
Dialogue was unnatural and awkward, which made the weird hot-and-cold blossoming romantic subplot uncomfortable and stilted. A lot of things didn't make sense or directly contradicted each other, particularly Drew's background and what he tells the house mates about himself. All the stuff around Vihaan was confusing because I couldn't tell how the shifting fit in and if Drew suspected
An entertaining read, well-written, with a lot of wonderful, diverse characters.
The world-building is original and very detailed, well thought out, but some of the mythology and its consequences were a bit too sad for me and took away a little of the magic & escape I look for in a shifter romance. There’s an unfairness, a haunting lack of possibilities and a point of no return aspect to the world of Vihaan that broke my heart a little for the characters.
I didn’t like the way in which the “

A great start to the book. I loved Drew's character as he got me into the book. Drew was knowledgeable about the species but doesn't have a clue what's right in front of him or what's about to happen. Drew has a past which comes in to play at the halfway point. Rylee's part in this is a little deceptive with sercets in play all around. Smoking hot sexy scenes included. The ending has some violent drama scenes but it all works out in the end for a HEA.

From almost the beginning I was never able to get over the "frat house" labeling. Maybe frat houses work different in different areas, but long term residents seem to be entirely contrary to the point. With the UK style spellings maybe it's a Canadian frat house and the system is entirely different, but it just felt weird to me. There was a lot I was confused about and things that just didn't really connect. The ex was one aspect that I didn't understand at all, as well as can they go back or ...more

Trigger warning discussion of extreme domestic violence/abuse. A pretty good start to a new series & I can't wait for more. We have a completely different take on shifters in this one & I really enjoyed that. The true "shifters" come from a place called Vihann, which is like an alternate universe, where they are in their animal forms. When they are exiled to our world, they shift into human form & are unable to take their animal form again, even though they can feel them. That made ...more

I loved Drew, Rylee, and the rest of the guys. I was amazing watching Drew and Rylee talking and hearing each other but having two totally different conversations, I was just waiting for the truth, on both sides, to come out. The shifter aspect of the storyline was very interesting and unique. All in all a very enjoyable read and a great series opener, I'm looking forward to the next book.

A Touch of Danger is a very intense book that deals with sexual, physical and sexual abuse, transformation and not being accepted by your family because of who you are. Drew and Sheffield have an attraction to each other for each from the moment they meet. It's a great book and new series that filled with action, mystery, romance, love all the characters and I truly enjoyed it.

This was so good, and so different from the average “shifter” books, and that’s what made it great. I loved all the guys, I’m hoping we get their stories too! I also love when the bad guy gets his karma.
