What would you do to have the body of your dreams?

Kiera hates being overweight and hides behind thick layers of clothing. One night, her friends present an opportunity that seems impossible to believe. With a single spell, she can have the thin physique she's always coveted.

But all magic comes with a price: no sex or she'll revert back to her old body. Kiera accepts the cost. It's not like she has men lined up at her door. Obeying this one tiny rule isn't difficult at all—until the night she meets Cain, a were-tiger and a soldier with the Eternal Forces.

When a slew of unexplained murders forces Kiera and Cain together, they'll have to face the horrors of their pasts. Will Kiera realize she is worth more than her outward appearance? Or will she make the wrong the choice and lose everything—including her life?

My Review

This book was not what I expected. From the cover and even the synopsis, I was not expecting the intense sexual frustration that this story provided and the paranormal twist that had me reeling.  Keira longed for a thin body at a size 18, she felt that she would never attract any attention from the opposite sex and be alone forever. She was afraid though because there was a man from her past that hurt her. Literally. He stabbed her in a jealous rage. He’s long dead now, but Keira still fears that the past will come back to hurt her. Then one night her best friends bring a gypsy that can see her inner beauty and is willing to make her outside match. Keira is skeptical, but she agrees and the gypsy delivers. There is one condition though: If she has sex, her new body will vanish and she will be big again. She felt this was an acceptable term. Then she meets Cain and does he ever make her sorry for agreeing to that. He is sex personified and she has her work cut out for her, but can she resist, or will she lose it all?

This book was so good at making you feel the need, the desire and the intense frustration the characters felt. Going into this story I was really expecting a very different kind of story. I was pleasantly surprised. I love shifter novels and this one was a good one! It had suspense, mystery, romance, and a smokin hot main character. Cain makes you want to jump in the book to get a closer look. Wow. Great book! I give it 5 stars!
