about

Wolf Shifter Mason McNaughton is tired of the crazy feral living in his house, endangering him, his brothers, and his sweet auntie Cora. Ferals are Shifters who’ve reverted to the wild stage, forgetting all about the joys of pizza and satellite TV. Not to mention, Mason is sick of waking up to the feral’s rampages, one of which nearly killed him. The feral has been given sanctuary, so Mason can’t throw him out—the only thing to do is to find a way to cure him.

The problem is, Shifter healers—elusive, Goddess-touched Shifters who have the healing gift—are few and far between. Mason volunteers to go in search of one, and is sent to a psychic in New Orleans who might have an idea of where to start looking.

Mason doesn’t believe in psychics, but Jasmine, the psychic in question, seems to at least put on a good show. Jasmine believes in Shifters all right, but she vowed to never have anything to do with them again.

The easiest way to get rid of the growly Lupine, Mason, is to help him, but Jasmine never dreams what that help will drag her into.

A short novel of the Shifters Unbound series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this Book <b>"Wild Things" by Jennifer Ashley. Book 7.75 in the Shifters Unbound series.</b> I loved this book! Yes, I'm calling it a book. Technically it's shorter than a full length book but it's way longer than a normal novella. It really feels like you're reading a full length novel. This book is about Mason, a wolf shifter, and Jasmine, a human psychic. Mason is a character that has been in the series for a few books already and is the youngest brother of Broderick (from "Bad Wolf" book 7.5) and Jasmine is introduced as a new character who is friends with Bree, Seamus's mate (from "Lion Eyes" book 7.25). All three of these novellas are inter-connected to each other. Mason has had enough. He's tired of the feral Shifter living in his house. Living with three brothers, one of them mated, and his aunt made the house full enough already and now this feral Shifter Aleck and his mate Nancy?? It's enough to drive anyone crazy. So Mason is on a mission to find the only person that can help...a Shifter Healer. But he can't find this Healer alone. Bree has told him to find her friend Jasmine. She's a psychic and has a talent for finding people. Mason doesn't believe in psychics and any of that woo-woo stuff but what does he have to lose? Jasmine knows her life is about to change forever. It's in all her tarot card readings about her life. Someone mysterious is coming. When she gets a phone call from her friend Bree and learns Mason is on his way, she knows he's the one. Can she actually work with a Shifter? She's been hurt personally by a Shifter before. But this is a professional job and she just can't say no to helping. I loved the story line in this book! Mason and Jasmine are such different characters but as their relationship progresses they are just so right for each other. Jasmine's background of failed relationships and Mason's background of "Shifter groupies" wanting him for nothing more than a one-night-stand, really show how each of them have issues with trying to find a meaningful relationship. The sexual tension and buildup to Mason and Jasmine's romantic relationship is perfectly done. The story line introduces the new Shifter Healer who is a very interesting character that I hope we get to see more of in this series. Overall, this was an excellent book and I can't wait to read more of this series.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3.75 stars- quick read, fascinating characters 3.75 stars--WILD THINGS by Jennifer Ashley focuses on the hunt for a shifter healer who has the ability to cure the ‘feral’ rage without having to destroy a life in the process. This is human psychic Jasmine Samuelson, and wolf shifter Mason McNaughton’s (Broderick’s brother-Bad Wolf) story line. SOME BACKGROUND: The premise of Jennifer Ashley’s Shiftertown is similar to the Japanese Internment Camps of the 40s and the Native American Indian reservations of North America-animal shifters are relegated to second class citizens; tagged and collared and must remain within the confines of a pre-arranged area. There is within the shifter a true animal that on occasion will surface and destroy the man within. In the case of Aleck (Broderick’s brother in law), a feral feline shifter given sanctuary in Shiftertown, there is no known cure except the possibility of the power of the reclusive shifter healer. WILD THINGS follows Mason McNaughton as he goes in search of the one person who may be able to help locate the healer- a woman who would call to Mason’s very soul. What ensues is the building relationship between Jasmine and Mason as they search for someone who may not exist. The relationship between Mason and Jasmine is one of immediate attraction but Mason does not believe in psychics; and Jasmine has been burned by a shifter from her past. But the mate bond doesn’t lie and there is something about Mason that enhances Jasmine’s ability with magic. The $ex scenes are limited, intimate and intense. WILD THINGS has a large ensemble cast of characters including an extensive and growing family tree, as well as the introduction of healer Zander Moncrieff-a rare shifter with a gift to heal. Zander is a rarity not only because of his ability but also because of type of shifter. Zander’s story will be told on Guardian’s Mate (September 2016). Oh, and we can’t forget Jasmine’s place of residence-a house with a mind of its own. The world building continues to focus (in a limited capacity) on the discrimination against the shifters with reference to collars and segregation. The fear of reprisal, pain and imprisonment keeps the shifters virtual prisoners in their homes and towns. There is prejudice and specieism amongst the shifters themselves-some shifters are more welcome than others. WILD THINGS is a quick read with fascinating characters and the beginning of a new journey for the Shiftertown shifters. The premise is entertaining; the characters are colorful and animated; the romance was a little subdued but sexy none-the-less. If you are a fan of Jennifer’s SHIFTERS UNBOUND, you will want to check out WILD THINGS for a peak at the future.
