Bedroom eyes and rock hard abs make for yummy eye candy, but Harper Mattox knows a bad boy when she sees him. She's been there, done that, and refuses to buy the T-shirt. The scar was enough of a souvenir.

When Harper agrees to be the temporary secretary at H&V Construction as a favor to her best friends' husband, Adam Hughes, she thought her days would be spent behind the desk, organizing until her heart was content. She had no idea she'd have to put up with the walking sex-on-a-stick Christian Viera. AKA, her other boss. No matter how many times she turns him down, he just oozes more charm in her direction, weakening her knees, as well as her resolve. And it's only her first day!

A threat on Harper's life has Chris ready and willing to protect her, showing off an animalistic side she never knew existed. She's known violence in her past and has no room for it in her life now.

Is the fiery passion between them enough to stick it out? Can she accept him? Fur, claws, fangs, and all?

About the Author

C.E. Black self-published her first book in 2011 and has since published several novels, novellas, and short stories. Though she began her writing career in the Paranormal Romance genre, she found her niche in erotic PNR/Fantasy with her breakout novel, Shifted Temptations. What started out as a standalone romance, became the Amazon best-selling Alpha Division series. Though steamy romance, hunky heroes, and feisty heroines are C.E.'s specialty, she enjoys surprising her readers with action-filled plots and exciting twists that makes for a fast-paced read.

Steamy but not much of a story. The resolution is sort of rushed. And though the ending is happy, and romantic. I felt a little let down in the development of the relationship. Overall, it’s a quick good read.

Not A bad read. It did keep me interested throughout and I did like the characters. The emotions for me were a little hit and miss but some hint there. Wish it was longer

Shifted Under Construction is #5 in the Alpha Division Series. It is a stand alone novella, these books do not have to be read in order. The book has interconnecting characters, fast-paced action, little angst and a HEA. Everything seems to happen within a 24 hour period so it makes it a little unbelievable because we don't have in depth connection to the characters. But if you are interested in a fast read with some shape-shifters thrown in then this book is for you. 1 like

C. E. Black’s Shifted Under Construction is an action filled and exciting read. Teacher Harper Mattox takes a summer job at her best friend’s husband’s, Adam Hugh company, H&V Construction. The last thing Harper wants is to get involved with another bad boy; that includes Adam’s business partner and Harper’s boss, Christian Viera, who is very persistent. C. E. Black does a great with her characters. Harper has been through a difficult situation and is trying to be smart about not repeating her past mistakes. Due to Christian’s lifestyle, he does not want to get involved in a relationship, only having one (maybe two) night stands. That hasn’t been a problem until he meets the intriguing Harper. The two have great chemistry. Donnie makes a considerable antagonist. He is a bully and easy to dislike. I like how the story started off and ended in a similar yet different situation. It is amazing how the same task can be so altered by the people it involves. The story is a fast read with some unexpected twists. This was the first book I read in the Alpha Division Series. I had no problem following the story. It did make me curious read Nikki’s and Adam’s story Shifted Undercover. This is a great read for people that enjoy adult PNR that includes mystery and action. Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

*May contain spoilers * First, let me say I love when an author mentions others from previous books into a new series. In this book, we get action and some hot romance. Chris and Adam own a construction company but that is not all they do. Nikki is Adams wife and knows the life they lead but when she suggests her good friend Harper needs a job and a new start she recommends she be the secretary at the guys site. Harper has gone through hell with an ex who is supposed to now be in jail. Prank calls start at the job and then a woman comes in asking for Chris. Harper has no idea at first what is happening and although she wants Chris, she worries. He tells her from the get go he can offer her nothing but 1 night. But everything goes to hell in a hand basket. Can Chris keep Harper safe from those who want to hurt her as well as from himself? What will Harper do when the truth all becomes known? I really enjoyed this book. The characters are very likable and Harper is a strong female. I was gifted a copy of this book for my honest review.
