Shift: Southern Werewolves Series, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Hard working criminal lawyer Elizabeth Montgomery is finally taking a vacation, a solo trip to the mountains of North Carolina to a cozy little cabin in the woods. Unfortunately, she doesn't even get to spend one night there. She takes an early evening hike and ends up on the wrong side of a vicious animal attack.
Or so she thought.
When she's found and rescued by sexy stranger, Abraham, she soon finds out it was a werewolf that attacked her. And that she's the newest member of Abraham's pack.
Now Elizabeth must navigate the changes that come along with becoming a werewolf while also learning to fit into this tight knit pack. For an only child who rarely speaks with her own parents, getting close to Abraham and his family might just be scarier than becoming a werewolf.

Want to like it,even I’d the whole human turned by crazed or homicidal rogue werewolf does feel a cliched ....
I know we’ve all been here before,but honestly it wasn’t the been there done this of the story line that got me....
it’s the MC’s ...
I. Don’t . Like . Them!
O geez , I could give myself a headache from all the times I wanted roll my eyes at how annoying or ridiculous Elizabeth was being,seriously that B got on my last nerve and just stayed there...
Elizabeth seemed to need to argue like Kim Kardashian needed to show off her butt.... and sadly in both cases it seems to be a near constant thing...
Even when Elizabeth knew, knew she was protesting or arguing just, well just because ,nine times out of ten she did it any way... we aren’t really given a clue as to her age ,which what ever it is she seems rather immature , I mean else can you call it when just after a werewolf attack’s her and uses her leg as a chew toy but next day can she allow ANYONE to help her get up and move ?
No.... no, not is she can help it... even when she’s almost falling flat on her face she’s ungraciously pushing others away...
Elizabeth is a prickly pain and even though I didn’t like her and fellow only child or not I couldn’t relate to her closed in and closed off attitude towards others ,but I hoped eventually we the readers would be let into why she was the way she was..
Why even when she’s getting on Wells/the very sweet and kinda and perky Evey,the alphas sister and future mate in law why she didn’t really confide in her and kept her at bay ...
But nothing... at 47% I was still grasping to understand her and not to just see her as this grouchy, overly prickly ( soo prickly even the most thorny of cactus 🌵 would be asking her what her deal is) overly argumentative B but nothing ....still no explanations, no backstory telling us what happened to make her insecure and yet over compensating for some past mistake... N O T H I N G .....
All the while sniping at poor alpha “Abe “ and trying to argue with every other word that cane out of his mouth...
I just wanted to smack her soo dang hard and ask how old are you ? Seriously, how old are you ? You act like a spoiled two year. that loves the sound of its own voice and just discovered the word “no” and yet you say you haven’t don’t this or that in a decade or haven’t had a sleep over in two decades ... aaaaaa Elizabeth acts like she’s in her early 20’s but wouldn’t two decades between sleep overs make her at least 30 ? She doesn’t seem that old by half...
Then there Abraham or ( this made me cringe) “Abey” seriously ? A grown man and werewolf alpha ? “Abey” ?
More than once I’d forget and get confused and think it was Abbey for a sec and wonder “Who’s Abbey?” Then id remember it was this weird childish sounding nickname for what’s supposed to be a big strong “Alpha”.....
I’m sure there are women named “Abbey” out there who’d come across as more strong and confident and secure in themselves than Abey here did...
Now while it was plain to see the over,y itchy and prickly B that was Elizabeth needed to be handled a certain way, I still found Abe way too secretive and passive to feel alpha in the slightest ..
While our h didnt want anyone to help her do anything, oddly enough as a supposed attorney who is used to dealing with criminals, didn’t seem to be too bothered by al, the secrets she knew Abe was keeping from her especially ones about why she was soo important to him...
I won’t let help me stumble to the bathroom, I’d rather fall on my face or my butt but I’ll let you keep secrets concerning me and not even push for answers but argue about everything else... no...
Then Abe’s sister and her bestie both couple dis the woman they both know is his mate and he doesn’t say or do a thing but comes unglued when the pack doctor is touching her forehead in a living room to check her head from a fall the night before ?
While a applaud this new writers strength and effort I hated her main characters and the lack of info and backstory needed to make them work... the h seemed no more than 22 and felt about as much like a lawyer as my mailman and sane goes foe Abey the alpha.... my last Pomeranian felt more alpha like when ever he saw a postal worker...
Good luck,I understand the need and the dream, I hope you get where you wanna go❣️
I was very disappointed with the pacing of this book. It’s more of a romance (kinda) than a mystery. The mystery drags on without much investigation. It’s more lack an after thought. P.S Calvin was the killer which we all kinda knew.
The characters: The sisters were awesome! Abraham came of weak and more like a groveling fool. He let EL and Peyton walk all over him. EL was overbearing, childish, argumentative, spoiled and ignorant. She was just awful. She turned little things into big issues that really didn’t need to be. Ex., they didn’t tell her she may die after her first shift or if she mates with Abe she becomes an alpha couple. I mean....sure there is some level of betrayal but her over reaction was ridiculous. It was more like a child throwing a temper tantrum.
I read the second book hoping EL would mature. I guess she did in the end..due to her own detriment.
I won’t be reading anymore of this series. If it wasn’t for the sisters I wouldn’t of continued.

Unhappily, for the reader at least, the heroine is immediately adopted into the world's most boring werewolf pack by her 'fated mate'. There is a lot of eating. It is described in detail. As are the girl talks. The other girl talks. The giggling, blushing, and let's have yet another meal described in detail talks. Even the romance is boring. There is never any doubt or question about the whole 'fated mate' trope.
To make matters worse, the very, very little, and believe me, you will be searching for it, storyline that there is isn't even resolved.
Gave it two stars rather than one because 1) it was free, and 2) the start was good at least. Overall, a painful read.
