Be Were (Southern Shifters #5)
by Eliza Gayle
Dean had a family once. Until tragedy and betrayal consumed them. Now he lives on his own terms keeping life simple and carefree. Then one night leads to one bite and he's forced back into a dangerous world that reminds him he's still as angry as ever and this time he's not leaving until he gets what he wants. Niki.
Niki Harris has lived a life of secrets and solitude with no interest in making a change. But an easy one night stand turns complicated and she finds herself marked. Now she has to decide, tell the sexy shifter with a possessive streak a mile wide she's pregnant and in danger or do what she's always done--run.
Dean has left his family and wants only to be left alone. He never planned to fall for anyone and when he has a one night stand with Niki he sees he wants more than one night with her. However Niki only wanted one night. She didn't want to be marked or get pregnant. She is on the run from some dangerous people and having someone claiming to be her mate on her trail is not in her plans. They both will have to work together to keep Niki safe and Niki will see maybe having a mate isn't to bad.
I liked this story as it is hot and has some amazing shifters. Niki isn't one to let anyone order her around and isn't looking for a mate. She now finds herself pregnant and that itself is an odd problem as she didn't think it was possible. Dean has to go back to the family he left behind for help and while it isn't what he wants he finds he wants to be part again. He just has to convince Niki she is his and that she should stay. They have no problem in bed together it is outside their that they have to learn to work together. There is danger as someone is after Niki and will stop at nothing to get her back. However Niki won't go without a fight and you see how tough she is. I liked the side characters and look forward to there stories. If you like shifter books you may enjoy this one.
