When the girl of his dreams walks into his homeroom class one October morning, Max Fergus, a seventeen year old quarterback and star student, has his world turned upside down; everything he has ever thought about himself and his life is changed in that instant and nothing will ever be the same again, because once you know you aren’t human, there’s no going back, no pretending you are less than you are.
Anna Lissa Felidae, a pure blooded shifter has been searching for her soul mate, the one guy that was meant for her, and just when she is sure she is about to run out of time, Diana, goddess of the hunt, appears to her and sends her in the right direction. With another shifter on her trail, one who is determined to have her no matter what the cost, Anna has just three short weeks to convince Max he is a pure blooded shifter, among other things, and teach him to fight so they can be together. With the help of a few Fae friends, a motley crew of shifters and Max’s best friend Tony, they are sure to win.
What happens when you mix a high school jock, a shifter, and a fae? Yep, you get Max! The story begins with a typical, if somewhat lucky, student whose amazing on the gridiron and gets great grades. Insert psycho-jealous pseudo-ex girlfriend, a beautiful new girl that gets in Max’s head (literally), a lion with an agenda, and the Lord of Light and Illusion, and a deadline.
I loved both the word building and the character development in this story. Max isn’t your flat, bully jock in so many stories and Anna isn’t your typical damsel in distress, not by any means. His life is pretty good, or so he believes, until a new girl steps into his homeroom class and everything he knows, changes.
Jaguar and Fae Prince? Oh, and Dianna (the goddess) has plans for him too. But only if he can survive the killer set on destroying Max and taking Anna for himself. With the help of a couple of fae warriors, a wolf, a dragon, and an interesting and amusing band they draw around themselves, the two set out to right the ills of the shifters and maybe even help with the fight between the light and dark fae… As long as they can get to class on time and make it back by curfew, that is.
I love paranormal romances, and Elizabeth A Lance has given us a spectacular story with Soul Mates: Scent. I’m new to this author, but am thrilled I decided to give her a try. This is a great read and one I hope you will give a try. It’s so different than other shifter stories I’ve read and can’t wait to read the rest of the series and more by the author.
