    This is the third time I read this book and I loved it as much as the first time. Jae is a wonderful and versatile writer. I enjoy all of her books but the shapeshifter books and stories belong to my favourites. Of course I didn’t just read True Nature but also the first book in this series of books and stories Second Nature which also deserves 5 stars. manhattan Moon is short, more like a novella, 4.5 stars.

    Loved, loved, loved this one. The first in series was great but this one is even better. If you've read some of my reviews, you probably know I like longer novels that take time to develop relationships. This one definitely does. I'm hoping the third book is not too far in the future.

    A fun book. Jae is becoming a very good writer and one I look forward to. I liked Kelsey a lot as a heroine and was very invested in her by the end when things were getting extremely tense. The romance was sweet and very sexy. If I had a complaint, it's that there are too many points of view. You have whole chapters from the point of view of characters who aren't the two leads and those can drag the book down a bit. They aren't bad, don't get me wrong, just not as interesting as the main charact A fun book. Jae is becoming a very good writer and one I look forward to.

    Though I don't generally seek out paranormal shape-shifter books, because Jae wrote some and I love her writing, I wanted to give them a go! What I always appreciate about her novels is they're fully fleshed out - she doesn't cut corners. Which means they're often long. In this case, the audiobook was 14 hours in length - so you definitely get your money's worth. This sequel to Second Nature took quite a bit of time to build, but Jae's all about the slow burn.

The thrilling sequence where Danny begins to go through his first shift made the entire listen worth it for me all by itself - masterful writing there! There's a lot in this book - family and parenting dynamics, societal expectations (for both humans and non-humans), navigating through loss and major life changes, coming into your own and a hard fought-for romance. As with the first book, Abby Craden narrates this sequel and does a great job with it. There was a surprise bonus short story included with the audiobook as well - a real treat! It was fun to venture outside of my usual reading experience. I enjoyed it! 4.25 stars.

    3.5 stars. I really struggle with liking submissiveness. I don't mind submissive wolves or omega but they're wolves ffs, I cannot understand submissiveness to that extreme point of deference to everyone. It's so irksome. Eventually she gets a backbone but boy that grated on my nerve. A trained warrior who is submissive to this degree was a turn off. The human though, hot!! 3.5 stars.

    Another great story from Jae’s books that I enjoyed quite alot, hardly put it down. I have to forced myself to stop reading at 3am because I have to work in the morning. I like how there were some part that involved main characters, Jorie and Griffin and got a bit of their POV as well. I like how the story goes. And I really like Kelsey!

Kelsey and Rue worked together to find Danny that ran away from home, their adventure, how they got to know each other and things that happened just made me hype most of the time. And Danny, while he ran away, he had learned and experienced The life of homeless people. It also made him to reconsidered the action that he poorly treat his mom and such. All in all, I like and enjoyed book alots.

    My favorite in the series. Loved the idea of having Rue the human being the dominate and Kelsey as the wolf being the submissive wolf. Really well done!!

    This is a tough book for me to review. Jae is one of my all time favorite authors and I can always count on one of her books to get me out of a reading slump. While this was an enjoyable read, it wasn't one of my favorites. This book follows Kelsey, an omega wolf who was part of the group who tried to kill Jorie in the first book (Spoiler Alert!). She is tasked with rescuing a shifter-wolf teen who hasn't gone thru their first shift yet from their adoptive mother. I really like Kelsey. Shifter bo This is a tough book for me to review.

This book follows Kelsey, an omega wolf who was part of the group who tried to kill Jorie in the first book (Spoiler Alert!). She is tasked with rescuing a shifter-wolf teen who hasn't gone thru their first shift yet from their adoptive mother. I really like Kelsey. Shifter books are always hit or miss for me because I really don't like the alpha male dominate bullshit trope that is very common in this genre. With Griffin being a Liger, there wasn't all that much of it in the first one, which I appreciated. With the focus on this book being Kelsey, an omega, it was really great seeing how being submissive doesn't mean your weak or can't stand up for what you believe in. I really liked her story. I also really liked Rue, and how once again, Jae used a human to up-end ideologies in the shifter community, but in a different way. Over the last 2 years that I have been nose deep in romances, I have come to discver that I don't like POV's that aren't the main couple. Even if it is well written and serves a purpose, I always feel like it detracts from the main couple, and I am impatient to get back to them. This book has a decent amount of time to Danny's POV. There were interesting parts but they never really grabbed me. They almost make the book feel like there is too much happening. Last little critque on why this wasn't my favorite. I like Griffin and Jorie but I felt like their involvement in this story never had a conclusion. They are there in the beginning to get everything started, appear in the middle and then pretty much aren't involved at all in the end. I wish they were either less involved in general, or had an ending. I especially wish that Griffin and Kelsey had some kind of closure. Griffin spends most of the book being an asshole, and I dislike that I kind of really hated her by the end of the book, given that I liked her a lot in the first book. Maybe their stories aren't done yet, given the ending of this book! Highly recommend reading the first book in the series but this is a worthy read afterwards.

    Better than the first book, Second Nature (yep, the title is a bit confusing. :)) Fans who like the first book should definitely grab this. It's a great return to the world of shape shifters that the author Jae has created but is different enough that it feels like a totally new book. One little thing I didn't like about the first book, Second Nature, was the idea of frail, smallish (5'6") Jorie being with a 300-lb woman/liger. :) No such problem here.

The lady shape-shifter here is a sexy, shapely wolf. :) The 480 pages flew by so quick I never noticed it was almost twice as long a the usual lesfic book. Possibly Jae's best book yet, although my sentimental favorite is still Hidden Truths. I have a side comment about the blurb which seems to be a bit too 'spoilery'. For the first 2/3 (or more) of the book, the biggest mystery is whether the kid's mom is abusing the kid or wants to do him harm. But the blurb seems to imply otherwise. I think the suspense would have worked better if the reader doesn't get the impression (from reading the blurb) that the mom isn't the bad guy.

    I always enjoy Jae's books. They are well written and she is a go to for solid reads. I liked book 2 better than the first. Rue and Kelsey were more likeable for me than Griffin and Jorie. Kelsey is easily my favorite character out of all the books and short stories within this series. All (both mains, and the shorts) are well worth the read though. I always enjoy Jae's books.

    Another great story by Jae written around an immensely enjoyable character study. Kelsey is so complex; I loved watching her grow and it was great to read about a wolf shifter who isn't what I'm used to (dominant/possessive). Again, a deep and well written secondary cast.

And by romance, I don't mean sex. Like seriously, if my brain remembers right, Rue and Kelsey didn't even have a date, or dinner or a sleep-in like how Jae usually writes her books. Jorie and Griffin had some. They never even went back to Rue's office (I was having thoughts about that, panty suits and all). A wolf submitting to a human: Now that was new. They're usually alpha but still needy as fuck. But submissive, no. Though even the submissive part was rather unsubtle. I like it when I am the one who interprets scenes for myself. When the scene are so leading, it makes the book less adventurous in all sorts of way.

    More suspense than romance. There is a Wrasa human pairing but it happens pretty fast and most of the focus is on the larger plot. Not really my "thing." No rating because I skipped over whole chapters that felt too scary. More suspense than romance. There is a Wrasa human pairing but it happens pretty fast and most of the focus is on the larger plot.

    4.5 rounded up. Felt more connected to Kelsey and Rue compared to Jorie and Griffin, and Danny was my favourite. I do wish we had more than a glimpse into Rue repairing her relationship with Danny, and the romance felt a little rushed at times (but that’s also me being a hoe for slow burn.)

    My obsession with Jae's shape-shifter series has officially reached its peak with this great read. The dynamic between the characters was the thing that hooked me this time. The novel challenged the norms of dominant versus submissive roles, which I loved. At the end of the day characters, and what they bring to relationships, is and should be unique. This read was a wonderful reminder of that. Jae does a great job developing the characters and their various relationships.

At first, I was not sure I could get behind a relationship between Rue and Kelsey, but as the search for Rue's son Danny in New York City went on, I was rooting for a happy ending. I love seeing characters from other stories in the shape-shifter series with appearances by Jorie and Griffin from Second Nature, and Shelby and Nyla from Manhattan Moon. I am hoping for another installment of this series at some point!

    I'm not the biggest fan of supernatural plots. Generally, the actual laws of the world aren't explored and just used as convenient plot twists. Also, especially with straight fiction, they're just thin veil over horribly sexist people (generally men) to seem justified. In this case i was very pleasantly suprised. The author put thought into the supernatural laws and the society that they live in. In addition, the "main" shape-shifter is actually submissive instead of dominant, which i've never se I'm not the biggest fan of supernatural plots.

The book is also long enough to allow the author to actually flesh out the characters, their relationships and the world. The best part was, though, that there was an actual plot seperate from the love interests falling in love. I didn't get resolved in two sentences and presented an acutal problem to overcome. The story also didn't just end directly at the conclusion, but took a few chapters to sketch their future and the new challenges they'd face.

    Second book of the Shape Shifter Series, although a stand-alone novel I think it is better if Second Nature is read first. I really liked Kelsey in Second Nature so was very pleased to see she was one of the main characters in this book.

What can go wrong does go wrong as Kelsey and Danny’s mother try to find the missing boy in time.

    I've truly enjoyed this series of books. After reading the first novel in this series I fell in love with the feline shape shifters and didn't think I'd love the wolf shape shifters as much but it turns out that I am an equal opportunity shape shifter lover. If there was one small thing that bothered me about this particular book was Griffin.

    Another great shape-shifting story! Loved the dynamic between Rue and Kelsey. I didn't like Rue to start with but she turned me around, haha. Really enjoyed it! The only thing I felt I didn't really know was what truly happened between Rue and Paula? I know they both worked a lot and things, but I felt there was something underlying that I didn't catch? Then again, I read half of the book in one day because I couldn't put it down, so perhaps I missed it, lol. Another great shape-shifting story! Loved the dynamic between Rue and Kelsey.

    A great follow-up to Second Nature. You don't have to read Second Nature, but it's helpful. I love this world! This book is fun in different aspects of shapeshifting, I love the main character is an Omega, and is just looking for her Alpha. Loved the suspense, action and thrilling chase.
