It’s the story of a lifetime. But can she betray the man she loves? in Shifter’s Claim by A.C. Arthur.

My Opinion 5 STARS
** Copy provided by NetGalley and St Martin's Press for an honest review**
Although this the fourth book in the series, this is the first book that I have read and it can be read as a stand alone story. I will certainly be going out to get the other books in the series that I have missed so far.
The book is completely actioned packed and there are some seriously hot moments between Bas Perry and Pryia Drake. We get a good look at who Pryia is behind her facade and what made who she is total along with the background into what made Bas into the shifter that he is today.
Conspiracy plots, shootings, murder, love and more fill these pages along with revenge, drugs, betrayal and more.
Both find that they are attracted to each other from the beginning and Pryia who is a reporter is on this assignment only because her brother is in trouble. But nothing can stop either of them from getting what they want but each other, and when Bas's protective nature kicks in and he finds out the truth he helps Pryia in everyday he can, even when he know's what the consequences of his actions could be.
Of course we get a HEA in this story of a sorts, we also get a slight peak into what is going to happen in the next book in the series, and it looks just as exiting ass this one.
