I'd had this on my to read list for ages before I finally got round to picking it up. I wasn't expecting much,I thought it would most likely be a clichéd cheese-fest (and let's be honest - that cover is naff).

But I really enjoyed this. It had just enough of a storyline for such a short book; it was sexy, but without it being all about the sex; it was funny and it had a small bit of angst sprinkled on top too. The glimpses you get of Mac and Saint make you want to read the next books in
My Shifter Showmance is the story of Thomas Lyons, a lion shifter. When his roommates finally have enough of Thomas's brooding about being forced to hide who and what he is, Saint- the most entertaining, loveable, and wickedly hilarious half demon I've ever met- shoves a laptop into his hands and points to the webcam.

Tadah! Shifting Reality is born, a site dedicated to the telling of the lives of Thomas, Saint, and their housemate, Mac, the loner vampire.

Soon enough, the site is forwarded to
I loved this series of shorts, featuring three roomates; a vampire; Mac, a shifter; Thomas, and a demon; Saint, who have had enough of anonymity and start a blog that suddenly goes viral.

Of course, the world doesn't believe they're the real deal, so to convince them, a group of fans are invited to Mac's old castle in England for a week of fun and games. Whoever still remains after a week, is the winner. One of the contestants is Margo, a woman who's got the hots for the sexy Thomas Lyons (guess

He's gotten home that night railing at the Fates, going on and on until Saint had walked out of the room and brought him one of his extra computers. He'd shown him how to use the webcam and how to start a blog...It was like catnip. He'd begun to talk into the camera and, like a sinner at confession, it had all poured out.
Cute easy read. Story about 3 paranormal roommates: a cat shifterThomas; a vampireMac; and a half demonSaint. Story is mainly about Thomas who owns a blog called, Shifting

As I've mentioned in past reviews, I'm not a fan of 'love in 24hrs'. It's just not my forte. However, I knew it could end up a part of the deal with this paranormal romance.

This book was written beautifully and took you on a 'paranormal reality internet show'. The premise was fantastic: Production Company assistant thrown into her guilty pleasure, the internet reality show sensation "Shifting Reality". Margo, our heroine, is thrown into the most real week of her life.

I loved this book. The combination of reality tv and shifters ( two of my faviorite things) is fantastic. Just wish it was longer cause I wasn't ready to pt it down yet. Eagerly awaiting the next in the series.

Loved everything about My Shifter Showmance. Had all the humor and great characters I've come to expect from R.G.Alexander...not to mention the hot romance. I can only hope this turns into a series!!!

OMG!!!! this is really really good
Another sexy story about paranormal things and how to find them. Margo Sheffield has found a website that she is totally addicted to so when there is an announcement that 8 fans will be selected to join the three male characters at a Scottish castle, all expenses paid, she applies. Little does she know that the whole week is a set up by one of the characters just to entice Margo. Thomas is a cat shifter and he has his claws out for Margo. He knows no other way to reach her to see if his feelings ...more

Definitely a reality show I can get behind watching! Omg yum all the types of supernaturals I absolutely FLOVE. Thomas is definitely one kitty I would suffer through allergies for 😉

Originally reviewed on These Pretty Words.

I have such love for R.G. Alexander and her quirky little novellas. Always hot, always funnyalways just enough to get you through a quiet Saturday night. And My Shifter Showmance did not disappoint.

Margo is a buttoned up office girl, though theres a bit of naughtiness in her past. Shes fallen into lust with Thomas, the supposed lion-shifting star of an internet vlog. Shes thrown completely out of her element when she wins a contest to spend a week in

I loved this book! Thomas Lyons is super yummy and the whole I idea of a guy who makes himself a vlogger based on the paranormal challenged society he has been made to conform to made for a great deal of funny. I loved Saint and Mac and I thought that the world that Alexander created was one of the funnest that I've read about in a supernatural/paranormal genre.

So Thomas Lyons has made himself an internet celebrity and has been driving his roommates crazy because he has managed to let his hobby

A shifter, a demon, and a vamp share a video blog where they 'come out' to humanity. However, the more they share, the less they are believed and everyone just thinks it's a really top of the line web series, including Hollywood executive and fan, Margo. A contest to meet the super sexy bloggers puts Margo face to face with the reality of her very naughty fantasies.

I really wanted to like this more. The idea is quite clever but unfortunately it is so rushed that it falls short. We really don't

I loved the premise, I loved the characters. I loved all of it... Except the length. It was too short! I wanted more. More of the characters, more interactions, more intrigue, more sex, more, more, more. I'm not greedy or anything. :) Seriously, I'm a huge R.G. fan, really. And she writes so well. This book was enjoyable to read. I just think it could have been developed into an even longer novel.

I know, it's not a great review. But I don't have much else critical to say. Strong female lead,

I liked this. A bit more than the 3 star rating, but not quite a 4. I liked the three guys, the roomates, Vamp, Demon and Shifter. All doing a reality blog show. I guess I am not rating this better, because I wish it was longer. Margo went on the seven day challenge, and then poof we went from day 1 to day 5. I thought there could have been so much more about the day to day. How they were trying to spook or challenge the guests, and then more on the relationship between Margo and Thomas. I was ...more

I presume you know what the book is about. I'm letting you know what I liked or disliked about it.

The concept of this book is fresh and it was fun to read. A cast of many characters were introduced and the potential to add to the story is perfect. I hope RGA capitalizes on it.

As it is I liked the book, see the potential, but overall this particular story was just okay. The stand out of it was the groundwork prepared for more work. I'd like to see more smut (but, well - that's because I'm a smut

Kind of stalkery on both sides, what with the voyeurism, tracking-down, hidden cameras and whatnot--but I'm not sure how that could've been helped given the set-up (a web-based reality show starring the supernatural hero [and his superfriends, who will, of course, get their own stories later]). Imagining Aidan Turner as the hero (despite the occasional reminder that the guy's meant to be tawny and leonine)--yeah, that helped.
Love Love Love! For under 100 pages this had a lot of variety in it. Not only did I get all warm and fuzzy over it, but at times I couldn't help but laugh at a number of lines(because they were genuinely funny not absurd). I can't wait to read the next one, My Demon Saint!

This was a very interesting book. Not much to go on from the description accept for guy is shifter wanting to meet human girl. that's about all I got out of the description. After reading the book there was so much more unspoken in the book. even for a short book I was really into it could feel the characters feelings project through to me. so all in all the 5 stars are well earned. hope all you guys like it also.
A cute, hot short romance.

I really liked it, and I think it's got a lot of potential. I definitely am interested in reading the next one.

I liked pretty much all the characters. Though the 'baddie' was kind of obvious. And there wasn't really any real subplot involving the baddie.

But yeah, Thomas, Saint, and Mac... (though there wasn't that much of Mac) loved them all.

I enjoyed this story, but I really wish it were longer and more detailed. It just seemed to be missing some meat, but I did like what was there. I would love to read more about these guys and hope to see more with Mac.

A fantastic premise...just not good follow thru. The story needed far more unpacking and development.

Update: I'd kill t have this book re-written and fleshed out more thoroughly. It's such a great idea that's not followed through.

The story is too short, predictable and doesn't have enough depth. It's basically all about sex. There's so much the characters can do either than shag. Tt would have been interesting to involve them more into story.

This book is great, it has humors an it tugs on the heart strings as well. As many times as I've read it, I still laugh out loud at some of the parts an still fall in love with the three roommates as well as the main female character.
