Emmitt worked as a bartender for the bar that hosted Shifter speed dating events. Until the new shifter owner bought the bar, Emmitt knew nothing about the paranormal world. Now after seeing the shifters find their fated mate, he longs for a mate of his own. The problem is that female shifters are very rare and they would probably never be allowed to mate a human even though the shifter genetics would be dominant in their children. After a speed dating night is canceled Emmitt leaves the bar ear ...more

Ripley (RIP) was groomed from infancy to fulfill her parents wishes for a pureblood marriage, one that they had prearranged. Emmet is a human bartender at "The Bar" where shifters are given the chance to find their fated mates (Tsigo). He has often thought that a woman fated to love him was a blessing he wanted. Even when a deadly Manticore crashed into him in the park. The characters in this short story were allowed to show enough their personalities to engage the reader. The action was swift a ...more

Emmet was sitting on a bench in the park when a Manticore swoops down at him.
Human Emmet worked in a bar that often ran a blindfold dating evening for shifters so he dealt with a lot of shifters when the night's event was cancelled he finished early and headed to the bench in the park where he usually went to unwind.As he is enjoying the quiet he sees a lion shape with wing coming right at him then as its tail seems aimed at him and he knows it is a Manticore with a tail that can kill.

Emmitt works the bar at the Shifter speed dating events. Somehow the boss comes in and tells everyone to go home early. Emmitt goes to the park and decides to walk and clear his mind. All the sudden he's knocked down and there standing over him is a winged lion, with a scorpion tail, he's just meet a Manticore (I had to look up that mythical animal). Instead of being stabbed by the tail he looks again and sees the most beautiful woman in the world. His mate. This had some great action, and the c ...more

This is a fun series of shifters breaking all the rules to find their true mate.
Standalone with no cliffhangers.
Emmet is a human male working in a shifter bar that has shifter date nights to find your true mate. Will he ever find love or be stuck watching everyone around him finding love. Then she fell right out of the sky.
Ripley is engaged, the last single female of her kind, and her parents have made her life hell. No problem!
Will he live long enough to complete the mateing?
This is a wild ride

I really enjoy these super quick, hot stories.
Shifter females are so rare the the shifter population is in decline. Some males are turning to dating events to find human mates. Emmet is the only human working at The Bar where these events are held. He sees so many meet their mates and knows that is something he will never have. He thinks he's being attacked in the park but his mate has found him. Ripley is a rare manticore promised to another shifter. He's human. Can they survive being hunted t

Read many shifter stories but this one had a nice twist. Not a male shifter who finds his mate in an ordinary woman but a feminine shifter who finds her mate in a worldly man. But that is not just assumed by the world of shifters. A female shifter is simply rare and the world of shifters prefers to see her with a "normal" shifter.
When the intended fiancé comes to get his gram, Ripley shows in a fight that she stays with her choice by the man Emmet.

Humor about the world of shifters. Short and hot

This interesting book 6 in The Shifter Speed Dating Book Series is a nice, short, steamy, anr standalone story with fated mates. This very well written story has characters who are well crafted, engaging with good personalities. This has an amazing plot with intense scenes that keep you entertained throughout the entire book. The characters in this book have obstacles which they overcome and the characters have growth throughout. This is a short, steamy, shifter romance that has daring adventure ...more

Ripely and Emmet completely surprised me. I love the twist on the shifter being a rare female. And the intense drama that their Tsigo bond created. From the confrontation of Ripley’s intended, to the betrayal to the council and the “trial” by the angry Georgie. Fate was with them and they were granted to live and have their Tsigo bond. It was such a relief that I could almost feel their mate bond snap back into place. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good shifter love story wit ...more

I've always enjoyed Zoey's quick reads as she has a real talent for writing these short stories. And this one is another one of her beauties.

It was great to read a traditional role reversal on the usual male shifter, female human trope. It definately gave things a breathe of fresh air in a world where its 99% male shifter ass and strong human female. Which woman wouldn't want to read about a guy worshipping a woman?

Hands up for a quick hour worth read that has some action, some drama and some ex

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. The meeting of this pair was unusual in two ways. They didn't meet at the speed dating event and the shifter was female which is rare. Ripley and Emmett are mated quickly but of course the shifter council interrupts and this time it is not Ripley they want to punish. However Ripley's ex fiance speaks in favor of this mating and Ripley and Emmet are released. Although I'm curious about the reaction to Emmet's ...more

This is a NON-SPOILER REVIEW. Totally Lucky by Zoe Indiana is the sixth entry in her Shifter Speed Dating series. This series of reads are short and fast paced. The stories are linked through the Speed Dating Service, but can easily be read as stand alone. I read Totally Lucky in about thirty minutes and really enjoyed meeting a Manticore and her human Tsigo (mate). A cute spicy read that will have you wanting another Totally read! This is a Mature Readers Only read.

The storyline for this was a first. The human was male and the shifter was a rare Mantidor shifter. When Ripley found Emmett it was on the night she was betrothed to another. In order for Emmett and Ripley to have a successful bonding they have to mate on three seperate occasions on three seperate days. Will they be able to survive or will the council, her parents l, and fie ce stop them? This was a very different take on the shifter dating scene and an interesting read.

Ripley, a shifter, and Emmet, a human, collide in the park and the mating begins. The council is already against humans mating shifters and being she is rare, it could mean his death. The character and storyline are terrific, with plenty of strength and back history. Love how resilient Ripley is and how she kicked her exes butt. A courtroom decision stands in their way, or does it? It all boils down to her ex and his decision. Loved the ending and would love to read more about them.

Emmet couldn’t take being in the shifter bar during the speed dating events. Love and fated mates were all around him. Emmet decided to walk in the park to clear his head when him is struck down by a mythical Manticore. Loved how Zoey included different species in her writing. Always a quick intense read.

The author has given us a quick read that is not your usual shifter romance. Emmett, human, works at a shifter bar and hears things from the shifters, especially about the mating bond. While sitting in the park, he is attacked by a manticore and informed that he is her mate. Will the shifter council allow them to be together or will he be executed for daring to love a shifter?

Another hot and steamy story to the Shifter speed dating series. This is Emmet and Ripley's story. He's human and she's a Manticore. She's already betrothed when she finds Emmet ,her Tsigo ,her fated mate. The author moves the story quickly and smoothly with her vividly painted scenes and delivers a great addition to the series.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. All opinions in this review are my own and freely given.

This was a fun fast paced read that shook things up a bit. A manticore is a totally unique shifter and to have her be female finding her human fated mate was fun. There was, of course, fab drama, interesting twists and some serious steam to go with that mating. I enjoyed how the story unfolded and loved that I could fit this into a small moment of free time. All wins and I can't wait to see what's next :) ...more

She is a shifter and rare for her kind. He is human, who was given away at birth. On the verge of her mating to another, she finds her mate but he is not the match others want. The character are amazingly written, I love the strength they show not only going against others, but the support they have for each other. This is a fast story with a swift heat that will take your breath away.

Emmet has worked at the bar since before the shifters took over and started having the mating events. So he's familiar with the shifter world their dislike of human mates and what it means. What he does not expect is Ripley she is a creature of myths and obviously his fated mate. I liked how these two knowing the score did not fight with destiny.

This is Ripley and Emmet story. Man this book was full of intense drama and danger. I screamed when the fight happened. I loved that this time around the woman is a shifter while the man is human. I loved how tough and strong Ripley is and how she finds her mate. LOL I loved this book.

A short and faced pace shifter romance. Speed dating for shifters is a thing. But some on a council hate it. Since most shifters are male they are now looking for their mate with humans. But what about the few female shifters? What is their choice? Emmet may be human but he knows all about shifters and mates. Too bad he can’t find the one for him. The story moves fast and does heat up.

This was another great addition to the Shifter Speed Dating series. I have been thoroughly entertained by the books in this series and this one was no exception. Once again the character work was fantastic and the story line was good and this combination made for a quick, fun read.

This book had me laughing as I read the names of the chapter I was reading, for instance "Uh, I kind of mated his female." This is the sixth book in the Shifter Speed Dating series a well written short story with a couple that belonged even though it is forbidden. A St. Patrick's Day story about Wolf shifter Ripley and human Emmet. Well worth reading. ...more

Emmett is a human that works as a bartender in a shifter bar that wishes for a mate. Ripley is a rare shifter whose parents believe in the purity of their line and so she has a fiance.
A quick steamy read that was confusing at a times.

a different take on shifter love
I liked it, the fact that she was the shifter and he was the human. I am so irritated by his inner monologues, I felt it was too internalized, there were pages and pages of inner discussion that kind of brought the mood down in part of the story.
