Romance Book Review: Lynn Leite's Shifted series reviewed

Book #1 -- Shifted Series
Author: Lynn Leite
ISBN: 978-1481214254
Genre: Paranormal, Shifter, Werewolf
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform

So far this series has three short novellas with a good premise, however the love scenes are a bit cut off or short and offers a little less world building than I usually like, otherwise this series is so far good short read for those who are just looking for some quick read time. 

Rory moves in with her sister Willow after a bad breakup with her boss/boyfriend. When a stranger saves her life, Rory is sure that the feelings she has for Maverick aren't just hero worship, but what can she do when she realizes that being with her a mere human is against the rules in Maverick's werewolf community. She can't help for go to the aide of the werewolves, when one of their own is in trouble. She just has to find the nerve to see Maverick again know that she can't have him.

“Today your life will be shifted irrevocably.”

Near death, pinned by a crushing weight, Rory Brooks runs her sister Willow’s prediction through her oxygen deprived brain.
Willow was always right.

Dead is shifted alright.

Maverick Cheveyo isn’t in the habit of rescuing humans. This one is different. Without thinking of the repercussions, he saves the small woman and starts a chain of events that will risk his pack, his family, and most of all his heart.

Book #2 -- Shifted Series
Second Shift
Author: Lynn Leite
ISBN: 978-1482766110
Genre: Paranormal, Shifter, Werewolf
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform

The second in the series is the story of Willow and Ryder. Ryder is Maverick's brother and just another in a long line of men who have rejected Willow. This time not because of her psychic powers, but because she is human. Or so Willow thinks, but can there me more to this story than she know?

I liked this story better than the first, as more of the Cheveyo family's story is revealed. 

Willow Brooks has an uncanny talent for predicting the future.

Too bad she can't see her own path.

Her sister, Rory, is now married to a werewolf. She had seen that coming long before her sister or Maverick did. What she didn't see coming was the hulking werewolf she now lived with becoming her best friend, or his missing brother becoming her obsession.

Book #3 in the Shifted Series. 
Double Shift
Author: Lynn Leite
ISBN: 978-1484179741
Genre: Paranormal, Shifter, Werewolf
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform

In book three, Double Shift, Emory runs from the room every time either Sam or Hank come into the room. She knows that she is attracted to both men and the two men are attracted to her, but she doesn't want to come between the two men. It is best if she keeps her distance, or is it. Could it possibly be that these two sexy weres are all hers?

Meanwhile the story starts Cheveyo werewolves starts to heat up as a rogue alpha decides he doesn't like what is happening in the Cheveyo pack and wants to destroy the leaders and take the pack for himself. 


Being the only girl born to the Alpha, Emory Cheveyo is now blessed with two sisters in law to tone down her male dominated world. Rory and Willow are more like sisters to her. Like real sisters, these two seem to want to meddle in her nonexistent love life.

Emory doesn’t want a mate. 

The last thing she needs is more men telling her what to do.

So far, Emory has successfully avoided any kind of serious relationship. Evading two enforcers in particular is becoming more difficult now that they both work for her father. Sure, she's attracted to both best friends, but she’s pretty sure neither is her life mate. Why bother ruining a friendship over something that would more than likely amount to nothing? Besides she doesn’t even want a mate. Or does she?
