Shifter Woods: Snarl is the third novella in the Esposito County Shifters series, and this time we are at the snow resort at Cougar Ridge. As you might expect, there are plenty of cougar shifters around, including Commander Robert Chandler, and his daughter, Kate. When a down-on-his-luck Alpha turns up, citing an offer the Commander had made for him, Kate is willing to give him a chance. He fits in with their life easily enough, but Kate wants more.
I loved how this story progressed. The instant 'Mate' bond is there for Jack, but I loved how it was different for Kate being as she had anosmia. Jack has his morals, but is prepared to bend them to get what he wants. Of course, when he realises the Commander gave him a loophole right at the start, well, that was just downright funny!
With fast pacing, character cameos, and very smooth though, this story transitioned without any hitches from one scene to another. There were also no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. With a full story that is hot and steamy in places packed within the pages, this is sure to delight. Absolutely recommended by me.

Really don't have much to say in regards to this book. I really didn't care for the characters so much. It wasn't the worst book in the world but it wasn't the best, it was just a ok book. I don't know what it was but I just didn't enjoy as much as I was anticipating. I can't even remember the characters names, and I don't really want to find the book, just to look up their names. I think it's because I read one of my absolute favorite books of the year before I finished this book, and that book was Strange Grace by Tessa Gratton.
So just take my review at face value, and read it for yourself. I didn't like the ending of the book either, I don't know if there is going to be other books, or if this is a stand alone, but to me, the ending was left off in such away, that the story could be continued.
Also I am going to try and review other books, that I have read and haven't gotten around to reviewing yet, or just forgot to review. So in the next day, and coming weeks, I am going to try and get all of them up on my blog.
Found this story to be a jumble of characters with no real solutions. I will state that I have not read the previous books in this series, nor am I tempted. I nearly quit the book, but decided to continue, sometimes the story improves, not the case with this one. This is a “who done it” with no finesse and reason, too much side story, too many characters, each with their own agenda and the reader is left with a “wtf” just happened and does it fit in the story.
Elizabeth Gentry put all her passion into her students. Educating them, encouraging them, reaching them—that was easy. After the betrayal, the grief and the pain, there was a kind of peace in giving away her heart to her pupils.
That was what made Todd Lewis so dangerous. With his dogged determination and rugged handsomeness, he had slowly staked his own claim on her heart and made her feel again. Made her want to hope and dream. But her hopes, her dreams, her heart—were so fragile. Could she entrust them to him? Or would he destroy them for good?
