Ready to Were (Shift Happens Series #1) by Robyn Peterman

I never planned on going back to Hung Island, Georgia. Ever. I was a top notch Were agent for the secret paranormal Council and happily living in Chicago where I had everything I needed –  a gym membership, season tickets to the Cubs and Dwayne – my gay, Vampyre best friend. Going back now would mean facing the reason I’d left and I’d rather chew my own paw off than deal with Hank. 
Hank the Tank Wilson was the six foot three, obnoxious, egotistical, perfect-assed, best-sex-of-my-life, Werewolf who cheated on me and broke my heart. At the time, I did what any rational woman would do. I left in the middle of the night with a suitcase, big plans and enough money for a one-way bus ticket to freedom. I vowed to never return.
But here I am, trying to wrap my head around what has happened to some missing Weres without wrapping my body around Hank. I hope I don’t have to eat my words and my paw.

***This novella originally appeared in the Three Southern Beaches collection released July of 2014. This is an extended version of that story.

About the Author

Robyn Peterman writes because the people inside her head won’t leave her alone until she gives them life on paper. Her addictions include laughing really hard with friends, shoes (the expensive kind), Target, Coke with extra ice in a styrofoam cup, bejeweled reading glasses, her kids, her super-hot hubby and collecting stray animals. A former professional actress, with Broadway, film and T.V. credits, she now lives in the south with her family and too many animals to count. Writing gives her peace and makes her whole, plus having a job where you can work in your underpants works really well for her. She loves to hear from her fans. You can follow her at

I have to say that it has been confirmed that Robyn Peterman is certifiably hilarious.  This book had me laughing out loud.  Rip roaring funny!  A little steamy and a darn good story. This is not for folks who like dark gothic werewolves.  But if you like a snarky heroine, a hunky hero and a bunch of looney-toon secondary characters this romp is for you

Ready To Were, Shift Happens series by Robyn Peterman is another winner for Robyn. Essie is a secret werewolf agent sent to her hometown, Hung Island. Hank is the Alpha werewolf sheriff and Essie's ex. The sparks and the hilarious snarky comments will keep you reading as together they try to solve the mystery. The secondary characters of Dwayne, Essie's grandmother, and the others were all great supporting characters that added dimension to both Essie and Hung Island. Fabulous new cuss words from Robyn and her trademark humor make this a must read for any of Robyn's fans. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

I love Robyn Peterman because every time I pick up one of her books, I know I am going to love the original story line, laugh hysterically at all of the characters and walk away with a bunch of new funny as hell cuss words! Plus her heroes are always super hot, ultra sexy and major alphas! Hank was no different! OMG Dwayne was fantastic as well as granny, they were so funny! Essie was the perfect partner for Hank, yeah she was gullible in her youth but she owned up to her mistakes and she grew into her own. I loved her character! SR

REVIEW PROVIDED BY: Kelly  NUMBER OF HEARTS:  4 1/2 REVIEW:  This was such a fun book.  Robyn does a great job of adding in just enough snark and humor into all of her books.  While still telling a great story that tugs at your heart strings and makes you feel really bad for the bad guys.    I for one can’t wait to see what is next in this series.  The secondary characters were just as much fun as Hank & Essie.   Bring on more Shift Happens books.  Disclaimer:  I purchased this book and this review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

A HOWL of a great read!!!   WOW!  This is such a magically beautifully told Paranormal love story that has everything in it that I love!  Vampire – check!  Shifters – double check!  Awesomely hot & sexy romance – OH HELLYA TRIPLE CHECK!!!  I am so glad & thankful that Robyn chose not only to expand this short story into a longer story, but also because it is now BOOK 1 IN A BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW SERIES!!!!!  And if this is any indication of how this series is going to go – and trust me, you know with Robyn you CAN judge the series by the first book – well I am oh so very READY TO WERE!!!!!!  It’s on!!  RAAAAWWWWR!!  With every single story & book of Robyn’s that I read, I fall more and more in book-love with her!!!  This one is no exception!  I was hooked and mesmerized right from the start, I don’t think I could find on page where I didn’t “howl” with laughter, or feel for or with Essie, Dwayne, Hank and the others.  I love Robyn’s style of writing!  It takes a very talented and special kind of person & author to be able to write like Robyn does!  She can successfully blend smoking hot Shifters, Vampires and other Paranormals with the greatest sense of humor and quirky quotes all together into the most wonderful of love stories.  But then to also be able to write story after story of this calibre that never ceases to amaze and keeps you wanting more and anxiously awaiting the next book…and the next…and (well, you get the picture!  ¿) – well, that is further proof of Robyn’s writing flair.  I can’t wait to see what is going to go on with the next book!!!!  Although I do often think that there is no way that Robyn can top the current book, the next one comes out and not only did Robyn top it, but sets the bar even higher for future books.  I have yet to see her NOT reach or raise the bar each time!  But Hey!  Shift Happens!  Lol

Loved it!!! This book was the first in a fabulous new series. It was another great read from Robyn Peterman. Hank and Essie are so in love that when you read the words you feel as if you are part of their love. Granny and Dwayne are freakin nuts but you fall in love with those two cray crays as well. Well worth the read....woohoo. Enjoy!!
