It's hard enough being an undergraduate student, an intern at Downtown Manhattan's police station, and a bouncer at a local bar. Add her now ex-boyfriend who recently dumped her for the school's resident bimbo-oh, and she's a werewolf. Mackenzie Grey meets her match when she is kidnapped by the Brooklyn Pack and tossed between Sebastian and Jonah-the Alpha and the Beta. Being a lone-wolf in the city is dangerous, and now that the Pack has found her, so can every supernatural being in the Tri-State area. And not even her sarcastic, smart mouth can get her out of this. When a string of kidnappings involves Mackenzie in supernatural politics, she questions her new acquaintances and finds unlikely allies. Can she escape Pack law and keep her freedom-or will she be condemned to an unwanted path?

Karina Espinosa’s Shift is an amazing start to the Mackenzie Grey Series. Lone Wolf, Mackenzie Grey, never met another wolf until she was kidnapped by the Brooklyn Pack. She is exposed to a supernatural world full of politics that she did not know existed. This contemporary PNR takes place in New York. Kenzi is a great heroine. She is bold and brave. I think it is impressive that she is an intern for the NYPD. I love that Kenzi doesn’t let the wolves push her around. Her roommate, Amy, is great. She is loyal and a good friend. Her ex-boyfriend, James, is an idiot. She can do so much better than him. I do, however, respect his grandmother. I love Jonah Cadwell. He is caring and kind. He has a wonderful carefree attitude. Sebastian Steel makes an excellent serious alpha. I enjoyed the chemistry/tension between Mackenzie, Jonah, and Sebastian. Lucian is a fascinating character. I like how he helps Mackenzie. The plot was carefully thought out. I like how all the different events tied into one another. It had a little of everything: romance, drama, crime, mystery, pack politics, and humor among a few. I am excited that I already have the second book and will immediately be starting it to find out what happens next. This was the first book I read by Karina Espinosa. I was impressed by her creativity and writing style. I will definitely continue reading the series and other books by her. Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review.
I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Karina Espinosa has done a great job with this book. It definitely is quite a different take on werewolves, and basically throws the stereotypical lore that goes with it, out the window. Mackenzie Grey is a very strong character that won't let anyone make her feel subservient. She carves her own path and puts the safety of her best friend as her main focus before making any decisions. I can't wait to see how this story progresses. If you like Urban fantasy, you shouldn't go past this one!
