Review @Mandy_Harbin - Surrounded by Woods by Mandy Harbin (Woods Family #1)

Surrounded by Woods
Woods Family #1
by Mandy Harbin

Goodreads blurb:  When Mikaela Patterson must take on a client with specific requirements that no single women be allowed on his property, she keeps her broken engagement a secret. She doesn’t realize her client and his sons are mountain lion shifters whose instinct to mate with any available woman turns deadly.

Josh Woods is her client's eldest son, and he is immediately drawn to Mikaela. Knowing his father would never allow an available woman on the property, Josh doesn't understand his fascination with her. Josh and Mikaela fight their attraction because of their own secrets, but when the truth comes out about Mikaela's true availability and Josh's animal instincts, they must be prepared to face the consequences.

About the Author:  After reading Danielle Steel’s Summer’s End, Mandy became hooked on reading romance. Of course she was probably too young to be reading books like that at the time, which made it even that much better! She dabbled in writing throughout adolescence and justified studying it in college under that wonderful umbrella of liberal arts. Living in Arkansas, she figured writing was a dream and not a career, so when she went back to get her master’s degree, she studied business. It wasn’t until she was staying up late to write—after working full-time, spending time with the family, and studying mind-numbing business nonsense—when she realized something had to give. The love of writing prevailed. She still lives in Arkansas with a few classes shy of an MBA but now with more time to submerge herself in her craft.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

The cover is beautiful!!  I’d take Josh and his cat anyday ;)

This is an adult book due to the sexual content and scenes which were very steamy.

I’ve had this book for more than a year, and I’m not sure why I didn’t read it sooner.  This is my first time reading Mandy’s work, and it is definitely not my last.  This book surprised me because normally I want action not just dating or sexual drama, but Mandy did a phenomenal job of pulling me into the story and not letting go.  I know it says this book is around 75 pages, but it felt much fuller a story than 75 pages and I have no idea how she managed it but awesome!!! :) 

Mikaela is an awesome female lead because she strong and quick witted and is excellent with her banter.  I was definitely laughing out loud several times when her and Josh were having words.  Josh is strong, sexy, and very devious which I love :)

Mandy’s shifter world is more like cats in the wild which is really cool and makes it a unique twist for what I’ve read thus far.  Of course I didn’t want it to end, so now I want more!!!  It is a good thing I have book 2 as part of a bundle shifter set I bought!!!  YAY!!!

I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves shifter reads and being free it is a great way to get to know this author’s work!!!

Interested in reading???
