Andromeda Reynolds is being hunted. After witnessing her mother’s violent death at the hands of a pack of wolf shifters, Andie has devoted her life to protecting her community of cougar shifters from a similar fate. But now, a greater threat lies within her own pack, and she must run. If she stays, Kyle Carstairs will force their mating, seeking the added political power their union would provide.Andie would rather chew off her own foot than end up with Kyle. Though, knowing him, she won’t live long either way. Andie’s only hope of survival is to mate Jaxon Keller, the Alpha of the Keller Dare with which she is seeking asylum. But before she can get to him, Andie must first go through A.J., one of the Alpha’s Protectors. What Andie doesn’t realize is that A.J. has secrets of his own. All Andie knows is that the incredibly frustrating shifter insists on challenging her story, her skills, her trust… and her heart.
My Thoughts: 
I was given this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. While Abigail Owen is a new to me author, PNR is not. I thoroughly enjoy PNR and shifters in particular. Our main character Andromeda (Andie) isn’t your female in distress type. Thank heavens for that. She has a smart mouth and movements to back them up! She’s a tough chic. After witnessing her mother’s murder, she vows not to let anyone else die.
The characters are well formed, but it’s a plot that has been played a few times before. Even with that being said I found AF a very fast paced read. Only one steamy sexy scene was actually in print. Most were left up to our imaginations. Which I believe will make it catching to a wider group of readers. I am intrigued to read the next in this Shadowcat Nation Series.
