Andy is just out on a routine assassination for the
government agency she works for when things get a little
out of hand. Andy is a little confused as to why they

her, but what the heck a job is a job. Only problem is
right as she is about to tear out the guys throat his body
guard knocks on the door and Andy smells werewolf. Now she
must finish the job and get away but after a long fight
wakes up in the bed of the Werewolf Alpha. As she heals
waiting to met with the vampire he works for she must find
a way to escape and save herself or at least find a way to
make a deal that will save her and maybe get her sometime
with the sexy Alpha of the pack.
I love a good paranormal romance and SHIFT HAPPENS is a
good one. Andy and
the Alpha Wick are a couple that you can't wait to see
together, but then honestly wonder if the author is going
to allow it to happen.
SHIFT HAPPENS has excitement, intrigue
and lots of danger. I love the whole cast of characters
how they played a part in the story. Not to mention she
leaves you with an idea as to what she is going to do with
the next book, and I'll wait till then to decide if I'm
going to yell at her or not.
Since SHIFT HAPPENS is the start of a new series it
can be read as a standalone but I think you will want to
read more and more as J.C. Mckenzie writes the next book
the series. SHIFT HAPPENS is a great to start to what
to be a great series.

intimidating Werewolf I’d ever seen. Standing tall and
solid, power rolled off of his body. His eyes bore into

with sugar. A weird fuzzy sensation spread out from my

anticipation. They could sense the imminent kill.
Let me out! My other form repeated, throwing her power
against my built up walls, howling in defiance.
When the energy of the Werewolves surged, I finally
released her. My wolf form flowed out fast, wiping out

the size of a natural wolf, a Shifter in this form was no
match for a Werewolf, especially a dominant one. I had
