This book definitely had potential. Dmitri as a grouchy cat was fantastic, for starters. And I did finish the book.
But... wow, it wasn't just that the woman had self-esteem issues, there was the added Mary-Sue element to it that was just flat out annoying. Let's see - according to her, she's fat and unattractive, but every single guy in the book is interested in her and asks her out. Every single one.
I thought the whole 'why they love each other' was really badly done, as in, I couldn't figure out why they fell in love with each other. She doesn't know him at all. All she knows is that he was drunk, made promises to a witch, and didn't keep them. Yet when he says this to her, she's automatically sympathetic and on his side, and worse, proceeds to slut-shame the witch. (By telling her that Maeve is the kind of woman that men sleep with, but our heroine, who seemingly never leaves the house, is the kind that men marry. Gross. Gross. Gross. I'm not in 1950 anymore.)
There was the germ of a cool story there, but the holier-than-thou heroine kind-of ruined it for me.
As the story progressed, Abby became a stronger, more forceful person, which was a relief from the scores of TSTL 'heroines' one runs into in some paranormal stories.
The book could have used some proofreading, however. There were a lot of homonym errors; for example, bare being used in regards to having children, when bear should have been used. Also, dropped, missing words, a few typos, etc.
In the book, Dimitri is over 140 years old, but goes around saying that he's 32. That's fine. What's a bit creepy is the fact that it is mentioned that he barely looks over 20...so now, it looks like Abby is robbing the cradle? Eeeew...
Being a 'cat lady', there was an issue for me regarding Abby's cat Sebastian...when everyone had to leave Abby's house to escape the bad guys, no one bothered to bring along Sebastian...they just left him. A loving cat lady wouldn't have forgotten the cat!
Still - Shifter was a great story, and I see a sequel in the future!
This is the second Jennifer Reynolds novel I've read, & I really enjoy her style. The steamy moments, while detailed, doesn't overshadow the story. But, I have to say, Dimitri cat was the highlight of the book, for me!
I'm happy to report that Ms. Reynolds is equally proficient with urban fantasy, as she is with apocalyptic zombies. (Read them, read them all!)
There is a sweet romance between the two leads, & there is indeed a HEA. I'm sure I'll read this one again :)
This paranormal romance showed the insecurities of the human female protagonist and the development of the male shifter lead. I loved this world and the well developed characters. My interest was definitely piqued at this author's world building skills and hopes she will write further of/in this unique supernatural universe.
