Andrea McNeilly's job as an assassin for SRD (Supernatural
Regulatory Division) has always been 'don't ask questions
just do as you are told.' She always has until the night a
botched assassination brings her in the sights of a very
powerful Master Vampire. It was his human servant she had
been ordered to assassinate. Use to using her wiles as an
agent she's not use to it when SHIFT HAPPENS but ... she
sure she can get out of trouble. Until she comes face to
face with her captors and can't seem to concentrate on
Wick, is a werewolf and the one who was sent to bring Andy
to Lucien. After meeting the beauty he doesn't want to but
he has no choice. He and his pack belong to the powerful
vampire. All he can do is support Andy and help her find
out why the human servant had been targeted and by whom.
Turns out things are not exactly the way she thought they
were and many things are about to change. It could be for
the good ... or so much worse.
SHIFT HAPPENS is a fast paced, humorous, sexy paranormal.
If you like your heroine to be butt kicking and brave,
though she is secretly scared to death then you will love
Andrea and Wick is the perfect foil for her, because
everyone wants their werewolf to resemble a Norse God and
have your back. This book, written by author J.C. McKenzie
is quick, easy reading with many touches of humor,
especially some texting autocorrects that happen, plenty
action and of course there are sexy wolves and vampires
over the place. My admiration for Andrea kicked up an
couple of notches after getting hints of her past popping
up at different times, but she kept going. It took awhile
for Wick to get through to her, but it's always good when
an alpha has to do a little extra work to get what he
There is so much that happens in SHIFT HAPPENS that it
could be confusing but I found the style of
Ms. McKenzie's writing to flow in a way that you find
yourself at the end but wanting more. I hope there are
of this type of storyline coming in the future because
there are a few characters I would love to see more of and
a couple I would dearly love to see get what they deserve.

Wick's job is to monitor Andy, but he prefers more
activities, none of them G-Rated. His choices, however,
often not his own. His ability to help Andy is limited by

set too high.
ExcerptA large black wolf trotted into the clearing to confront

would have looked cute had he not been the most
intimidating Werewolf I’d ever seen. Standing tall and
solid, power rolled off of his body. His eyes bore into
mine. I sniffed the air. The strong Werewolf scent of
rosemary swirled around me, strong and seductive, laced
with sugar. A weird fuzzy sensation spread out from my

layers of excitement and impatience. The air pulsated
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
to meet the eyes of the Alpha for only an instant before
the pack leapt forward. My limbs shook. It went against
every instinct ingrained within me, but I rolled onto my
