SHIFT by Staci Hart
I’m not sure how to write this review. Like I’m not sure how to full explain SHIFT to you at all. I have SO MANY good words swimming around in my head that could describe it but I feel that none of them are enough to actually make you understand what SHIFT is.
SHIFT takes us back to the ever magical and mythical world of greek Gods and their wars of love. Now I’m not a reader of the magical, mythical, fantasy type romances they just don’t do it for me. BUT these books do, you see, Staci blends all that magical, mythical stuff with modern, contemporary romance. These gods are soooo cool and up to date. It’s a compelling twist and mix of history, gods and humans, that just WORKS. So, so well. It also helps that these gods & humans are HOT!!!!!
I feel I should also make it clear that I am not a lover of 3rd person stories at all *gasp*. It’s true, I generally try and avoid them. Again they just don’t do it for me, I never fully feel connected to the characters or the story. BUT in SHIFT I honestly couldn’t have been more connected. The whole time I was reading I was so utterly captivated by the characters, invested in the games of love, in awe at the way this story was so passionately written. From beginning to end Staci literally sits you in the damn novel and everything around you disappears bar what is playing out on the pages…
You feel the blood, the sweat, the tears. You feel the heartbreak and pain. You feel the heat and the passion. You feel the love.
NOTHING is left unsaid in this story.
SHIFT is addicting. It’s pure magic delivered in a raw, compelling way. And this proves that every once in awhile you should step outside of your comfort zone and take a chance on something a little different. I have and I don’t regret a single second of it.
Bestselling author Staci Hart brings you the second installment of an addictive romantic mythology series where love is the ultimate game, and Aphrodite always wins.
Even the gods cannot betray the will of the stars.
It’s been a hundred years since she’s warmed my bed, a hundred years spent waiting for her. Now we’ll compete again in a game that matters little to me. But my prize is far greater than a token to be paid for a favor — I want her.
And for the first time in a very long time, I have the chance to keep her.
Because now the ground has shifted, tilted in my favor, and with her footing unsteady, she will fall.
I will catch her.
This time, I won’t let go.
*Formerly titled Snake in the Grass, Shift has been completely rewritten and edited*
