    When Meara Thorton lost her parents she went into hiding and bec

    When Meara Thorton lost her parents she went into hiding and became a computer hacker. The FBI caches up with her an she is offered the chance to work for them instead of going to prison. Of course Meara jumps at the chance to do so. Jace McKenna is a member on the team with a secret. He is a loner as well but once he meets Meara he knows she is his mate. He is a shapeshifter and tries to keep it a secret from Meara. He also has to keep her safe when a bad person decides she belongs to him.




     Meara is a good character. She would rather live alone than deal with losing another person she loves. She slowly comes out of her shell with Jace and begins to fall for him. She is amazing with computers and when faced with strange things she tries to think them thru. Even when in danger she still puts her fears aside to worry about the safety of others. Jace is the hotty shifter who knows what he wants but afraid to scare Meara away. He does all he can to protect her.




     I liked this story there is a lot going on as you see Meara come out of her shell to help other people in danger and to fall for Jace even knowing he is hiding something. There are different killers in this book as you get to see what kind of work they do and how the team works. I did guess who was after Meara but was still surprised in the end when all was revealed. The sparks between Jace and Meara are wonderful and you just know they will complete each other.The only fault I had with this book was I wish at times it would slow down. It is fast paced sometimes to fast. I think I really just wanted more of it. It is a great paranormal romance/suspense book that people will enjoy. Be sure to check it out.

    Unique Premise But the Execution Was a Bit Weak

    Catching Meara left me conflicted as to my review as the premise completely won me over whereas the execution didn't live up to the promise. The main characters were likable with intriguing baggage but their relationship felt strange and stilted. There was a cast of secondary characters that were barely mentioned but I was still left wanting to know more about Colton the head of this agency.

    So as you can see there was a lot of good with the bad. The good was the intriguing premise of a covert group chasing serial killers. Each member brought a specialty to the group that helped in finding the bad guy. Unfortunately their abilities are barely touched upon. The crimes themselves seem to be solved quickly with an intriguing and in-depth look into the process. Too bad the same time and intensity in finding other killers wasn't spent on the person coming after Meara. We never get a grasp on the villain or discover much about him at all. This part of the storyline was unfortunately glossed over and wrapped up with virtually no suspense.

    The hero was to die for and would do anything to save Meara. His ability to shapeshift added an extra dimension to his romance with Meara as he had to win her over as a man and a jaguar, hoping she'd accept him wholeheartedly. Meara has been running, from herself and the law, for such a long time it's hard to set down roots and let another take care of her. She's a wild child in her looks but a total geek in love with her computers. She gives the appearance of being badass but is full of fear and uncertainty which made me sympathetic to her but a bit disappointed as well since I wanted someone capable of standing up to Jace which she didn't do enough of.

    My biggest issue involved the flow of the story which felt a bit clunky at times. There were scenes that ended abruptly and others that showed up out of the blue and it unfortunately affected the romance by pulling me out of the moment. What did flow well though were the sexual interludes that were nicely spaced throughout the story. They were steamy and showed me how well connected the h/h could be.

    Though not every aspect of this story worked for me I still recommend this to fans of the paranormal. The world of the shapeshifters is just being hinted at here and has me wanting to learn more and see Ms. Young's progression when she delves back into the paranormal genre.
