Curiosity never killed this cat, but love could have deadly consequences.
Sasha Soskoff has two reasons for moving to Chicago: secure a tenured position in veterinary research medicine, and widen his horizons. After a night at the city's hottest new club, though, a wrong turn down a dark alley narrows his focus to surviving three muggers. As consciousness fades, he catches a glimpse of his rescuer, whose mere appearance is enough to chase the attackers off.
Neal Harrison doesn't often have to call on his skills as an ex-Marine to maintain control at his club. But with Sasha, he can't seem to keep his hands to himself. Yet there's danger in allowing any close relationships, particularly with a naïve young newcomer. The safety of his business depends on the iron-clad secret he and his ex-Marine buddies all hide.
While Neal seems happy to satisfy Sasha's insatiable curiosity about the erotic scenes played out in the club's private rooms, Sasha senses his new lover is holding something back.
When the truth claws its way out amid a night of tribal blood and violence, Neal discovers his lover has a secret of his own. And that the forces arrayed against them all could make a mugging look like a walk in the park...
Warning: Contains explicit, adult situations: male on male, more males on several more males, no-holds-barred erotic scenes, no-claws-barred violence, and love forged in the heat of desire.

A great book to start off a series. Unique characters, fun story lines and hot sex. Looking forward to reading more about these shifters.
A. Catherine Noon and Rachel Wilder nailed it with this one. While I am not a fan of m/m stories, this one really drew me in because of all the action and emotion woven throughout the book. There was just enough of everything to keep me interested in every word. It is engaging on so many levels. Each element of the story is layered in such a way that one does not overshadow the other, leaving you with something that you are thrilled to read.
Magical Guardian & veterinarian Sasha Soskoff moves from his Coven in Madison to downtown Chicago to try for a prestigious new research job at Northwestern University. A brutal mugging by Russian mobsters—and having no health insurance—puts him at the mercy of the outrageously sexy Dom Neal Harrison, the owner of the Factory, one of the hottest gay clubs in town. Neal and his men are former Marines with a big secret—they’re shape-shifters. Sasha’s got enough to worry about with making ends meet while unemployed and trying to land his dream job. Being targeted by Russian mobsters and getting caught in a shape-shifter turf war was not what he’d bargained for. The last thing he needs is a relationship complicating things. But Neal is smoking hot—and definitely interested in Sasha. This was a total have-to-read-to-the-end-in-one-sitting book. I don’t usually read M/M, let alone M/M/M, let alone BDSM. But this book rocked! The characters totally made me fall in love with them—all of them. They all had their own personalities, stories and issues. Just like real people. I adored Sasha, just trying to get by as best he could and stay afloat in situations WAY over his head, poor guy. The shape-shifter community was fully realized, with its own customs and rules and hierarchy. The chemistry between Sasha and Neal is off the charts. I got a bit squeamish at some of the BDSM scenes—but that’s because I’m a wuss, not because the book was too hard-core. All scenes were consensual and the characters were totally into it. Those guys are definitely more adventurous than little ol’ me—more naughty than nice! But I was cheering for their HEA and for the bad guys to get what they deserved.
I really enjoyed the mix of magic and shape shifters. So many secondary characters that I am anxious to know more about. I hope we don't have long to wait. Fun...steamy...exciting.
I'm all for gay, group sex, shapeshifters and mofia, but having it ALL in a single (relatively short) book was just a little much. I learned there CAN be too much of a good thing. It also lacked the emotion during sex that was better shown during regular conversations.
Loved Doc. There was a lot of questions left unanswered and since there were soo many characters and little side stories, i expect related or series books to follow. I recommend.
