A Shifter U Tale

Outfoxing their enemies will be a bear of a task.

Aspiring journalist and fox shifter David ends up with a target on his back after hacking the Moreau Initiative, the shifter world’s greatest enemy. But he won’t let that stop him from the campus tour road trip that’ll help him become the next Anderson Cooper… even if his family insists he travel with a grumpy grizzly bear bodyguard.

Buddy Brady is older, sexy, and too damn distracting for David, and as the sexual tension builds, so does the suspicion around the repeated attacks—first in Chicago, then in New York. Someone is tracking them, and all clues point to a traitor in the shifter ranks. Worst of all, they could be after David’s family....

There is so much adventure and craziness packed into this book!  Fox shifter David Sherman has always been the screw-up.  So when his latest escapades lead to him having what amounts to a ‘babysitter’, his attitude is less than cheerful.  What is supposed to be his chance to make a future for himself, turns into a whole lot more.  I love the feistiness that is David!  He may be a little shifter but he is a big personality.  I love that he is not afraid to try and be himself despite his family’s interference.  You’d think that having a bear as a guard would limit David.  But it turns out broody Buddy Brady is vulnerable to big blue eyes, especially a sweet red headed fox with big blue eyes.

This book is part of the Shifter U series.  While I do think it could be read as a stand alone, there are enough background references and returning characters, that I feel reading it in order will just enhance the experience!  The action was perfectly paced, and when combined with this pair’s growing romance, made for a story that truly grabbed me and I sat and finished this in one sitting.  It was great seeing characters from previous books reappear even in cameo fashion.  This was a super shifter story and a great addition to the fantastic world that J. Leigh Bailey has created.
