When I first started reading this book, I was a little confused becaused I didn't recognize any of the characters from the previous Shifters Unbound Series books. These are a different clan of shifters out of Las Vegas and although there is a small scene where Dylan Morrisey makes an apperance these are all new characters to the series. After the initial disappointment I did start to enjoy the characters somewhat. I think the author should have given more past background on everyone instead of just the quick basic rundown she did. I think it would have allowed the reader to establish more of a connection with the characters. Still, I recommend this as a good book to read especially of you are a fan of the Shifters Unbound Series.

A definite TWO THUMBS UP!

Wild Cat is the 5th book in the Shifter UnBound Series by Jennifer Ashley, but it is listed as the 3rd in the series because one book is a prequel to the series (Shifter Made) and another is a shorter book (¿Bodyguard¿ the 4th book in the series).

Wild Cat is the 5th book in the Shifter UnBound Series by Jennifer Ashley, but it is listed as the 3rd in the series because one book is a prequel to the series (Shifter Made) and another is a shorter book (¿Bodyguard¿ the 4th book in the series).

The base premise of the story line throughout the series is: there are humans, Fae and Shifters. The Shifters were created by the Fae to be little more then slaves, laborers, warriors, etc. In the series timeline two decades ago Shifters came out to the humans. Shifter numbers were dwindling and they did it to hopefully create a safer enviroment for themselves to survive and thrive. But like all good intentions, their motives were pure but the fear and loathing that the humans had was overwhelming. In come the the Fae who offer to corral and collar the Shifters to ¿keep everyone safe from their wildness¿. The humans agree and also create Shiftertowns to move all of the Shifters there to keep track of and control them. The collars are specially magically engineered to keep the shifters from taking their animal forms and if they do it causes them enormous pain and suffering. Other volatile emotions will cause the collars to react and go off. In these towns the Shfiters are not allowed any ¿advanced technologies¿ (computers, cell phones, DVD players, etc) nor are they allowed to have well paying jobs.

Wild Cat is the story of a female Shifter, Cassidy Warden, and a human police detective, Diego Escobar. The story starts out on the 51 floors up in a building and doesn¿t come down until the end. Cassidy¿s mate was killed a year ago and she does not believe that she will ever find another male to be with until Diego walks into her world. From the moment they see each other something is there between them, something that neither of them at first can figure out or understand. They each in part accept who they are and what they mean to each other as the story unfolds with not one but several substories and plots running throughout the pages.

Ashley¿s story weaving holds the reader¿s attention during the main escapades of Cassidy and Diego but also sets the scene for others characters in the book to find their stories as well.

The dialogue is believable and real. The action sequences are fast paced and honest. The sex scenes are hotter then Hades.

And one of my favorite aspects of this book is the story it tells can stand alone. To often in a series a reader cannot pick up a book further into the series and understand what is going on and who the players are. Authors will set up the story to force readers to backtrack to the beginning to understand what is occurring but not this book. Ashley writes this book (and the others in the series) so that if a reader is just joining her, whether it is book 2 or book 4, they will understand what is going on because she gives sufficient background and explanations in the book to make everything make sense.

I easily give this book two enthusiastic thumbs up and recommend heartily.

    Love the series! Great book however I cringed every time Diego called Cassidy "mi ja" in Spanish that means daughter and is only use as endearment by parents or by adults to a young female

    OK, but high hopes for a series recovery!

    Jennifer Ashley's take on the supernatural is unique (and less sparkly) than others - originally what made the series so good to me.

    But, the story of 'collared' shifters is starting to really depress and anger me (yes, I get way too involved in my stories). I just keep waiting for real progress to be made...

    The whole premise is now starting to remind me of every human misstep in history...without the redemption.

    It was ok

    Ive read other works by Jennifer Ashley and this one was not her best. The 1st two shifter unbound series where great, even the ebook short story but i felt Wild Cat was all over the place. It didnt really hold my attention but i was stuck on a road trip and had already prepaid for it anyway i hope book four will be better...
