Hunger's Mate Parts 1-4 ( Shadow Shifters ) by AC Arthur with Reviews by Samantha

Part One in an Exclusive Four-Part Novel


Half man, half animal, a Shadow Shifter must walk the line between predator and prey. Love and lust. And pure, blind hunger…


A natural-born hunter proud of his birthright, Ezra Preston agrees to hide his true identity and pretend to be human to learn what his enemies know of his kind. But even undercover, it’s not in his nature to play games with a woman. Especially when he discovers a creature as mysterious—and utterly delectable—as Jewel Jenner. Can she be trusted? The only thing Ezra knows for sure is that she cannot be resisted…in Hunger's Mate: Part 1 by A.C. Arthur.

There is an issue in the area that concerns the Shadow Shifters. So they send Ezra there to investigate and help out the local Shifters. Ezra normally stays away from humans but he can't seem to stay away from Jewel. One of the resort employees. It doesn't help matters that he can tell that she wants him too.
Jewel doesn't want anything to do with Ezra. But he just won't leave her alone. She just wants to be somewhere where her and her father are safe from her past.
I think that this was a great beginning to the book. I have read some of this authors work before and I really like it. The Shadow Shifters series is another take on shifters. I have enjoyed what I have read so far and I definitely recommend reading!

From HOT romance author A.C. Arthur comes HUNGER’S MATE: Part Two, in the Shadow Shifter series, in which one man’s lust for life leads him to a dangerous place…and a forbidden passion.

Ezra can’t help but be on the prowl. Jewel is stunning. Sly. Insatiable. But she is no ordinary human—and he’s about to find out that he’s stalking but an alluring and mysterious cat thief. One who posseses dangerous secrets of her own…in Hunger's Mate: Part 2 by A.C. Arthur.

They know what Jewel's secret is. They know what she did. The monster that she had been running from found her. He hit the shadow shifters where it hurt. He hurt one of theirs. Now they are after him. Jewel doesn't want to want Ezra. There is no denying it now though. She is hooked. But with the monster from her past on her trail she can't truly enjoy herself.
Ezra never thought that he could share a life with someone. Not after the number a princess years ago did on him and his brother. He ended up killing her. He couldn't live with himself if he ended up killing Jewel.
The more I read the more hooked I am. It just gets better and better. Hot love scenes, intrigue and danger. This is not a stand alone. You do need to read part one first. I do recommend reading. Between parts one and two this has been a great read so far!

The desire—and danger—heats up to a scorching degree in HUNGER’S MATE: Part Three (Shadow Shifters) from popular romance author A.C. Arthur.

In Hunger's Mate: Part 3 by A.C. Arthur, Jewel has plotted and schemed for months, hiding her knowledge of a top-secret operation—and keeping Ezra guessing...and hungry for more. Captivated by her passion, skill, and courage, Ezra wants to help Jewel on her mission. But can she be trusted? Is his desire for her worth the risk?

He has her father. The monster, the man that she has been hiding from for three years has her father. He is using him to get her to come to him.
Ezra found out that they need a little girl that is special to him to make artificial shadow shifters. He doesn't know how they found out about them. Whoever they are but they did. The man after Jewel is in on it.
Love it! It gets better and better! AC Arthur has such great writing style that even with the book written in parts like this you just can't get enough. She keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting more! I can't wait for the conclusion of this great story! I definitely recommend reading although you have to start with part one!

Ezra finally realizes that the reason he can't stand to be apart from Jewel is because she is his  mate. Something he never thought that he would be able to have.
Jewel finally realizes that she can quit running. She has found the man that she is meant to be with. The man that will do everything in his power to keep her safe. She also realizes that she has important information for the Shadow Shifters that will help them in defeating the enemy.
Loved it! With all parts put together this was a great book! I am so glad that I was given the opportunity to read this. I am definitely going to be reading the other books in this series and I am going to be on the lookout for the next book as I can't wait to read Ezra's brothers story! I definitely recommend reading! You have to start with part one or get the whole book as these parts cannot be read as stand alones.
