Review: Something Shifter This Way Comes by Josie Walker

Book Description

What if her dream job is really a nightmare?

I shouldn’t have taken a job I knew nothing about, but I was desperate. My new boss was sinfully hot, and did I mention he’s a billionaire? Too bad he’s also rude and domineering! I tried to ignore my feelings, I wasn’t looking for a relationship... and then he had to go and save my life. He warned me falling in love with him was dangerous, but I might not be able to stop myself. Will I discover the truth about my mysterious employer before it’s too late? (A sexy, fast-paced paranormal romance)

My Review 

Eric Steele is a billionaire and has an ad for a live in assistant so there are a lot of people that come for the job but when he abruptly stops the interviews and sends people home, Crystal is at the end of her rope and barges into his office pleading for the job. To her astonishment she gets the job but he boss is a grumpy jerk. Still, she's up to her ears in debt and has no money so she's happy for the job. 

Crystal's jobs around the mansion seem to be cooking while the cook is on vacation, re-organizing the kitchen pantry, getting the shopping done and any other list of things that Eric gives her. When she gets into an accident on the way back from the market and Eric comes to her rescue, I thought that his gruff behavior would tone down a bit but it doesn't. 

Eric had weird rules and his mansion had murals of death and destruction. At first Crystal thought the place had just been decorated in some sort of gothic manor until weird things started happening and she saw what he was hiding behind the door that he told her to stay away from. I knew this story was going to have some kind of paranormal twist because he told her to stay in her room between the hours of 10pm and 8am. But I had no idea what the paranormal twist would be. I just know that whatever I had been thinking of, I was way off, way off. I really liked the twist that this book came with but it ended kinda quickly, it seemed rushed after the story and sexual tension had built so slowly. I would be interested in reading the next book though because I'm definitely interested to see what else happens with these characters. 

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.
