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.

    Very good read!

    I agree with Lizzie-funk in her review, but I am wondering why she only gave it a single star when she writes so enthusiastically about her great review?

    Great book as a stand alone, but definitely better in the series. Can't wait to read the next one!

    Super story! Great Series!

    Super story, and fully readable as a stand alone, but upon discovering that it's the third in a series, I got the earlier two, and read all three in order for full enjoyment! Highly recommended!

    A New Shiftertown to explore for Jennifer Ashley!

    While I had a ton of characters I was dying to see paired up and was seriously ticked to move away from them to read about unknown characters falling in love, well… I loved it! Seriously, Diego was an alpha protagonist despite not being a Shifter and Cassidy was such an amazing woman that it made everything fit together perfectly. I still missed the Austin Shifters, but I was happy to read this romance. I simply adore alpha men in my romances. 4 stars!

    Shifters Unbound series, book #3
    Cassidy's & Diego's story.
    Really like this series. Had to force myself to put each book down.
    Story about shifters who were created by the Fae a long time ago. The Fae used them as slaves until the shifters fought and won their independence. The shifters stayed on the human side of things and the Fae retreated back to their world, away from all the iron in the human world.
    Cassidy: feline shifter, Eric's sister (see book #4)
    Diego: human (cop)

    A really good quick read book!

    This is a really good book. Once you get it started you won't want to put it down. The author knows how to grab your attention with the characters and the plot. I've read the others by her and they are also really good. You get to use your imagination big time with these books and it is a fun way to relax for a while. Enjoy them all. I intend to re read them again and soon!!

    Great series

    I have read all of them and think they are all great. You can read them as stand alone books, but will make more sense if read in order. She does bring characters from the other books back throughout them. I can not wait for the next, hate waiting so long.
