Audiobook Review: Shifters Box Set (Underground Encounters, #3-4) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Shifters Box Set by Lisa Carlisle

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dangerous Secrets and Forbidden love.

Escape into a hot underground club, where the statues are so much more than stone.

Ignite: (a paranormal shifter / rock star romance)

A guarded shifter. A nerd turned rock star.

And a forbidden attraction that can’t be ignored…

Lily won’t consider a permanent relationship. That’s challenged when she meets Nico.

He’s a computer geek by day, and rock star by night. How could she resist such a combination?

She can’t. But no one would understand her furry little secret. It could be dangerous. Especially during the full moon.

Yet, she might be the one in danger…

Burn: A vampire versus shifter enemies-to-lovers romance

A vampire on the run.

A shapeshifting bounty hunter hired to capture her.

Who will outsmart whom?

Devon St. Clair, bounty hunter extraordinaire, is in hot pursuit of a thieving vampire. Vampires, he hated them. Shapeshifters and vampires didn’t mix.

But Devon wasn’t counting on spitfire Layla being his target. She’s reinvented herself as an 80s rock singer–and when he finds her, she distracts him from his mission.

The hunt is on. But, who will be predator, and who will be prey?

If you like paranormal romance and 80s rock, don’t miss BURN!

The heroine: Ligeia (a.k.a. Lily) – She is a cat shifter and she decided to go out with her friend Ally to do some dancing to celebrate the fact that all her hard work and effort is finally paying of in her professional life. They go to a club called Vamps without checking the schedule and there is a band instead of a D.J. so she is a bit depressed about that, but she sits down at the bar to get a drink and loosens up a bit. She finds that she is enjoying the songs.

The Hero: Nico (a.k.a. Leggy Bones) – His day job is working in software development as a computer programmer and at night he is the lead singer in a very popular band in the underground music scene called Velvet Cocks (a.k.a. VC’s). The logo is a rooster in a velvet smoking jacket. They are currently promoting their second album.

The Story: The story takes place on the night that the previous book, Fire ends. The VC’s are playing at Vamps and Tristan has a song request for Maya. Lily starts to wish she had a guy that would love her like that, but knows that she can’t trust any man with her secret. She finds that she loves the voice and power of the singer and when she sees him, she is entranced.

This was told in dual points of view via dual narration and was narrated by Amber Lee Conners and Kieran Flitton. I really like Amber Lee Conners’ voice, it is light and feminine and age appropriate for a twenty-something young professional. Kieran Flitton is not one of my favorite male narrators, but he does a good job. I just tend to like a deeper voice for a male narrator, but that is just personal preference.

I liked the fact that the band is a bit rock, a bit punk and a bit alternative and their songs are as cheeky as their stage names and band name. Lily turns into a mountain lion once a month and doesn’t seem to know anyone else like herself, so she thinks she is too strange to let anyone know about the real her aside from her mother. There are some great supporting characters and a good paranormal storyline.

The heroine: Layla (a.k.a. Angelica) – when she is framed for stealing from a master vampire named Stefano, Layla runs from London. She ends up in Massachusetts and hides under an assumed name and starts working as a singer for an 80’s heavy metal cover band called Blood Lust Diamond that plays at Vamps, an underground nightclub near Boston.

The Hero: Devon – vampires and shapeshifters don’t mix. Devon is a shapeshifter that hates all vampires. He is also the best supernatural bounty hunter in the business and is always up to bring in vampires that break the law, though determining their guilt or innocence is not his job. He is currently after a vampire thief named Layla who ran away from London.

The Story: Devon is confused when he first sees Layla, not only is she a vampire, and his bounty but he is attracted to her like nobody’s business. When he captures her, sparks fly. The chemistry between these two was explosive and they couldn’t keep their hands off each other. Though they were still enemies and Devon still planned to bring Layla to Stefano.

The story and the steamy scenes in this series have gotten better as the series goes on. This one was the best so far. I love the fact that there are multiple different kinds of supernaturals in this series. It keeps things interesting, and Devon can shift into any animal, so that is cool. Add into that the rock star romance trope and what more could you want?

This was told in dual points of view via dual narration and was narrated by Amber Lee Conners and Kieran Flitton. I love Amber Lee Connors voice, it is soft and emotive and she speaks in a perfect tempo. Her male voice is also very good and at times I like her male voice even better than Kieran Flitton’s voice. Though I do love dual or duet narration much more than solo.
