Review: Shift By Jeri Smith Ready

Hardcover, 384 pages
Expected publication: May 3rd 2011 by Simon Pulse 

Aura’s life is anything but easy. Her boyfriend, Logan, died, and his slides between ghost and shade have left her reeling. Aura knows he needs her now more than ever. She loves Logan, but she can’t deny her connection with the totally supportive, totally gorgeous Zachary. And she’s not sure that she wants to. 
Logan and Zachary will fight to be the one by her side, but Aura needs them both to uncover the mystery of her past—the mystery of the Shift.

As Aura’s search uncovers new truths, she must decide whom to trust with her secrets…and her heart.

I just absolutely LOVE this series! It just keeps getting better and better. I get so nervous reading sequels because I am always afraid I won't like it as much as the first. Shade was really good and a definite page turner, but I found the direction Jeri took the story in Shift was just PERFECT in every way. Some parts were predictable and some just left me with my mouth hanging open LOL.

In Shift, Aura grows a lot more and knows exactly what she wants. Her character really moves forward and becomes a lot stronger. She discovers who her heart really wants and exactly why her and Zachary are so important, and why they must keep their abilities a secret.  

Shift lacks absolutely nothing. If you loved Shade, then just wait until you read Shift. It brought a smile to my face, tears to my eyes, and "Oh My God" all out of me in one sitting. I was at the edge of my seat waiting to see how everything would play out and how it would end. The ending was perfect, and now to wait for book three just makes me so sad. 

Jeri Smith Ready delivered an amazing sequel. Loved it!

6 out of 5 Stars!
