Product Description

Coyote shifter Bobbi Jo Simpson, top investigator for the Enforcer’s Council, is finally closing in on the ultimate prize: The Chemist, who’s been poisoning shifters all across the country for years. She’s the best at what she does, so what could possibly go wrong? Try: just about everything. She’s forced to partner up with the most stubborn, infuriating werewolf private investigator on the planet, who also happens to be her fated mate. Throw in a wily human thief who won’t stop trying to help her, a surly lion shifter who may be the death of her, a computer genius who knows too much about her...if she survives this case, it’ll be a miracle.

Wolf shifter Jax Mackenzie has never been accused of being a nice guy – but being nice doesn’t get the job done. A wolf without a pack, he works the most dangerous assignments doled out by a private security company – and his latest case is a real killer. A fatal Rage virus is spreading among the members of an elite BDSM club, and Jax is determined to get to the bottom of the case.

To get what he wants, he’ll ruthlessly use his supernatural strength, his wealthy connections, and Bobbi, the beautiful coyote shifter who’s following him for reasons of her own. But the coyote is his fated mate – and possibly his mortal enemy. Now it’s not just Jax’s heart that’s at risk – it’s his life.

EXCERPT:
Jax rushed down the alleyway before she had a chance to turn around, slamming into her and pinning her up against the wall with her head turned away from him. As he touched her, his senses roared to life and he felt a rush of desire sizzling through his veins, and a very unwelcome swelling in his crotch.

He firmly tamped down his lustful thoughts, shoving them to the back of his mind as he pinned her wrists over her head against the wall, trapping her with his body and wrapping one leg around her.
God, that felt good. Way too good.

She went rigid, and didn’t bother to struggle, staring straight ahead and drawing in deep, angry breaths. Even with her face turned away he could see that she was beautiful, her cheekbones sharp enough to cut glass, her small nose tilted impishly.

Jax bent down and breathed in her sweet scent, a mixture of citrus and wildflowers and her unique feminine aroma which smelled good enough to bottle and sell in a French boutique.

“Didn’t anyone ever tell you to stay away from the big bad wolf?” he growled into her ear.

“Why no, but thanks for the advice. If I see a big bad wolf, I’ll be sure to stay away from him,” she said coolly, without the slightest quaver of fear in her voice.

Nice. A sassy one. Under different circumstances, Jax would love to have her over his knee for that. Unfortunately, odds were against them ever dating.

“Princess, you have no idea what you’re messing with. I’m flattered that you find me so irresistible, but I don’t really get turned on by chicks who stalk me. Been there, done that. I spotted you hours ago, by the way; you’re not that good.”

At that, he felt a faint tremor go through her, and he was pleased to see her jaw tighten with anger.

“You’re not turned on?” she said, moving her body against him. “So you normally carry a flashlight stuffed down the front of your pants?”

HASH(0xa548e5a0) out of 5 stars A great Adventure and A Perfect Match! Sept. 19 2013
By Cahm Merritt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I'd like to begin this review by stating that this book can easily read as a stand alone. However, book one in this series The Alpha Claims A Mate, is filled with witty dialog and characters you really do want to get to know. I recommend book one wholeheartedly, but you do not have to stop and read it first to get 100% from The Alpha Meets His Match.

This book introduces the hero and heroine really quickly. There are no delays here and it is a good thing; the author sets them up in all kinds of situations to show us their depth of character, why they are perfectly matched as well as why their histories make them who they are. This books gives you it all for the hero and heroine from dislike, distrust and bad mouthing which amazingly turns into hilarity, camaraderie, respect and eventually love.

This book isn't all fun and games there is a serious plot that is well developed and I personally feel Georgette St. Claire used humor in all of the right places so that the story didn't get too intense.

At the end, there are bodies, plot twists, wrongs made right and a great ending.

There are no cliff hangers (thank all the book gods.) For me as a reader, as I closed my kindle I was left with a deep seated need to be assured that the secondary characters would have their own stories in the future. Why? Because I really loved every secondary character (OK not the villains, they got what they deserved). I look forward to the continuation of this series and will auto buy every book that Georgette St. Claire writes in the future.

In conclusion buy this book! There are so many things to love about it; but I have to say it was well worth the price just to get to know the character Pixie, she has the best one liners I've read in many many years! I don't think I've gone to a Comedy Club and ever laughed so much!

HASH(0xa548e5f4) out of 5 stars Love this Author; do not like the book Sept. 27 2013
By Jennifer Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read everything available on Amazon by this author. I can usually finish a book this size in about a day. I bought this book with high hopes but I just cannot finish it. It has taken me more than a week to get through 82% and I can't seem to want to know what happens. I keep trying and I realize I cannot stand the two main characters. He is unlikable and she is just shady. There is no chemistry between them. The story itself slows down then races ahead.

The secondary characters are more likable. I am going to try to finish it because I don't usually leave something unfinished and if it gets better I will change my review.

Update: I finally willed myself to finish the book. It ended pretty much how I thought it would and more of the same between the characters. He was still unlikable and unbelievable. She while no longer shady was just not likable. I guess they belonged together. The pretty bow used to tie it together was unbelievable and boring. I've loved every other book I've read by this author. (I own all the kindle editions) I just cannot stand this book.

HASH(0xa548e8d0) out of 5 stars Great book - a few editing issues Sept. 20 2013
By Mama Bear - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I bought this book as soon as I got the email that it was available. Though there were a few editing issues (him instead of her - he instead of she - secondary character name change from one page to the next) the errors didn't detract too much from the story and I absolutely enjoyed this book. I have read all of Ms. St Clair's books that are available for Kindle and love them all.

Jax and Bobbi were awesome together. Their characters were developed well and their relationship progressed at the right pace as did the story and the development of the secondary characters. I am ready for the next Shifters Inc. story . . . PLEASE AND THANK YOU ! ! This is a complete story no cliffhangers (a pet peeve of mine is when books are not identified as part of a serial and I am left with a cliffhanger). I am putting in my request that the next book be Pixie's story - she was too funny - loved her character.

If you like Ms St Clair's other books you won't be disappointed - if you haven't read her yet - try it you'll love it.

Metaphorically threw it against the wall approximately page 30. Awful. Hero was a "sheriff's lieutenant" (huh?), certified in Florida, but legal to do PI stuff in California (huh??), had better connections to the local law enforcement than the heroine (who *worked* there). Annoying and stupid 15 year old runaway who wants to be a police informant because that's safer than turning tricks (???). Heroine throwing $20 bills, multiple times, to annoying runaway. Never got the to sex, though there was panting and lusting (I must, but I can't, but I have to, but I don't want to). Can I get that $.99 back?

HASH(0xa548e9b4) out of 5 stars Always wonderful!!! Sept. 18 2013
By C. Prieb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was fantastic!!! I felt like I really got to know all the characters. I am surprised I liked Jax as much as I did, since I wanted to club him over the head in the last book. But he snuck up on me and made me love him. Bobbi was wonderful, I just loved her character. Truly the author couldn't have made a better mate for Jax, I thought that Bobbi was absolutely perfect for him. They really complimented each other. Pixi stole the show! The way Bobbi and Pixi would hurl insults at each other and laugh was hilarious and had me cracking up out loud. The first scene were Bobbi and Pixi meet thoroughly enchanted me and their friendship was just wonderful. I really liked how they both looked out for each other and even after such short a time, cherished their friendship with each other. I enjoyed the time spent in Jax's head (hearing his thoughts) as it let me know him and fall in love with him. The supporting characters were awesome, and I hope that there are more books about Shifters Inc.
