My Review:Slow Shift was an impressive story. I was captivated from the beginning and was so excited and riveted by the entire time.
Chase’s mom passed away when he was fourteen and his father; John wasn’t there for him after. One day Chase is walking through the woods when his life changes. Chase meets Tyler when Tyler is starting to work on a house in the middle of the forest with his catatonic brother; Lucas. Despite Tyler’s surly attitude, Chase becomes back day after day helping take care of Lucas and helping Tyler with the house.
Chase and Tyler become closer and closer, making Chase’s father concerned and has him doing everything he can to keep them apart.
I don’t want to give anything away so I won’t include much more. I will say for a while I thought to cover of this book was unrelated to the book. That is not correct. There are werewolves in this story, but that doesn’t really have any part of the storyline until later.
I loved all the characters in this book. Chase was a badass. I enjoyed his character from his first appearance. He’s suffering, but I didn’t feel like it was anything over the top. He felt like a real character with depth. He grew as a character at a realistic pace and he became so strong.
I enjoyed Tyler as well. He’s lost his entire family and trying to stay strong and keep it together. He carries a lot of guilt over his family and the state of his brother.
Tyler and Chase do have a romance of sorts, but it wasn’t immediate or simple. I felt like they had a relationship outside of liking each other.
I enjoyed this book so very much. Would love to go back to this world at any time.
Excerpt:“Are you really ok with this?” Chase asks later that night when Tyler slips into his bedroom and curls behind him on his bed. It’s not small but it always feels like it is when Tyler is in it with him.
He’s quiet, so Chase tilts his head back and says, “You don’t have to. We can find another way.”
“I’m ok. We need to do this,” Tyler says.
Chase nods. He touches the runes tattooed on Tyler’s ribs, the ones he marked Tyler with, and Tyler arches into the touch. “Remember you’re mine, Tyler. Whatever happens, whatever she says, you’re mine. And I won't let her hurt what's mine.”
Tyler shuffles into him, presses his face into Chase’s throat, and they cling to each other as the night deepens around them.
