Trust the Wolf (Shift, #1)

You never forget your first wolf. Emilia’s first encounter with Jason is memorable: it’s not every day you see a stranger change into a wolf. Her attraction to him is undeniable, but the secret he shares shakes the foundations of her life. Jason’s need for Emilia unnerves him. It’s his job to report shifters without proper ID, yet he can’t make himself do it this time. The decision bites him in the tail when he discovers exactly who she...

  • Maraia
    Romance isn’t a genre I gravitate towards (okay, fine, I actively avoid it), particularly when it includes paranormal relationships. I’ve tried a few books, but in the end, the genre just isn’t for me. When my friend Zoe Ashwood told me she’d written a paranormal romance novel and asked if I wanted to read it, I was hesitant but knew that if anyone could write a paranormal romance I’d enjoy, she’d be the one.My first exposure to Zoe...

    Trust the Wolf is a pacy tale of shifter discovery and romance, and it gripped me from the off. Emilia is our no-nonsense heroine, and human, or so she thinks. When she is accosted in a nightclub by a nasty man who calls her 'little cub', she's saved by a hero who turns her life upside down. In more ways than one. It helps that Jason, our hero, is dreamy gorgeous, so when he shifts into a grey wolf in front of her and names her Ms Bear, it takes ...

    Oh how I tried for this book. I really wanted to enjoy it. It just fell through.We get Emilia who thought she was an average human but her world gets toppled when she finds out she is half shifter. Half bear shifter to be exact. If something lIke that happened to me, I would be so freaked out but no, not Emilia. She was more worried about jumping the wolf. She is introduced to this whole new world that she didn’t know existed and she is as cool...

    ~REVIEW🖋~The quick and dirty: Girl is informed by a male wolf shifter that she's not entirely human. They form a friendship that quickly morphs into something romantic but when he realizes who she really is, he quickly distances himself (shifter politics and abandonment issues). When there's an attempt on her life though, he realizes he's willing to sacrifice everything to save her. *MILD SPOILERS*Jason saves Emilia from being assaulted at a...

    Loved it! I've volunteered to review this book for United Indie Book Blog. This is my first time reading one of Zoe Ashwood books. I will be going back and reading of her books. Zoe Ashwood's writing is so captivating, she had me hooked with the first page. I loved Emilia and Jason. They had so much chemistry between them. Jason is strong and protective. I love that Emilia doesn’t drop everything and upend her life for Jason or for anyone else....

    AH! It had to be strange and scary when Emilia found out she was half bear and human. Then to fall for a wolf. All kinds of things going on. Finding out about her biological family, politics (which she does not care for), the guy she fell for was told to get into her good graces. So much, will it get better, the felling of betrayal? I like this book and the way the author dealt with all going on. I received a complimentary review copy of the book...

    Ok Wow really enjoyed this human & shifter lives. Keeping chaos in order for their safety shifters are fighting the same wars the humans do. By the way your a bear shifter, You now have new rules & laws, New changes need to be made, evildoers need to be dealt with. Emilia & Jason have so much to work through but love always wins. This is a good Read Good action and romance with a nice twist.
  • Erin Figueiredo
    Great Captivating Story.The story line is very captivating and kept me wanting to read more. The main characters are well thought out and easy to like. The book ends on a cliff-hanger making you really want to read the next book to see where the story goes. I really enjoyed reading this book. A must read.

    Love these characters and the premise! I'm not super familiar with the genre and I'm glad this was the first book I read in this kind of world.
  • Laney Kaye
    You know when you read a book, and you're aware it's probably not going to be a blockbuster, or a movie, yet every page imprints a permanent, gentle, happy smile on your face? This is that book. Sweet, fun, and eminently readable. Thoroughly enjoyable, and perfect to curl up with this winter.

  • Andreja Kumer
    I never thought shapeshifter romance novels would be something I'd read, but alas!, Zoe Ashwood's writing is so captivating, starting from the first sentence, that one simply cannot close the book. The plot is engaging and unpredictable, with traces of the most thrilling crime and romantic TV series, and the characters are incredibly real and sexy, so much so that they get you emotionally involved and you forget that you are actually reading a no...

    Emilia’s life is not what she thought. After a night out with friends her world had completely changedTrust the Wolf by Zoe Ashwood was such a fun read. It wasn’t heavy on drama or angst. Things seemed to wrap up quickly rather than drag out, which I appreciate. I felt the storyline was fun, engaging, and flowed nicely. I’m a huge fan of urban fantasy and finding new authors is always exciting. I have to admit I haven’t read many books on...

    Trust the Wolf (Shift, #1) is a perfect romance; it's filled with steamy moments and action-packed danger. The plotting was expertly paced and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. With alternating view points, the characters were hilarious and unique--each with their own distinct voice. Big things are in store for this merry band of shifters, and I'm excited to see what Zoe Ashwood delivers next.

    Trust the Wolf Shift Book 1This was a great read. Emilia spends a night out with friends, and it changes her life forever.

    Great characters that have great chemistry which makes for a great book! I enjoy well written shifter books, and this easily falls in to that category. The plot is interesting and has some drama as well as romance. It’s a wonderful romance and I can’t wait for the next book!

    Trust the Wolf is a sweet, funny and HOT HOT HOT read. As Emilia comes to terms with being a shifter, their chemistry is off the charts! I loved the Prequel Bearly Married, and this first in the series gives us more insight into the shifter community. No spoilers, but there’s a scene in this book that was so risqué and HOT that I couldn’t tear my eyes away. I can’t wait for Truth or Bear!
