This was my first book to ready by Ruby Ryan, and I loved it. It is also the first book in the Gryphons vs Dragons Series. I quickly purchased the rest of the books in the series to find out what happens next.
Ethan Masterson, a 30 year old who spends his vacation with his college friends that he has not seen in years. They go to Belize and relive their college days with drinking and partying. They are heading back to their respective homes in a couple of days and have a tour scheduled of a cave in the area. With most of the guys hung over, they manage to make their tour, but things get a little weird in the cave and they cut the tour short. A bit on the geeky side, Ethan is not someone you would expect to show alpha tendencies, or attract women, but after this vacation, he has changed.
Jessica, hired from a temp agency to fill in at a company as a Systems Administrator. She finds the job to be fulfilling, but the boss to be a pain in the butt. She also finds that the person she is covering for has a weird filing system for the files on the system. Little does she know that there is a reason for the weird filing system. Jessica has done nothing to make her boss, Mrs. Arnold happy since she has been in the position. Jessica would love to have a permanent position with the company, but fears that it won’t work out because making Mrs. Arnold happy is not easy to do.
Jessica and Ethan meet up by chance, because Mrs. Arnold sends Jessica to pick up Ethan from the airport when he comes back from vacation. Little do they know that it may have been fate bringing them together.
This is a paranormal shifter story with heat, suspense, and a very good story background. I loved reading it and look forward to reading the remaining books in the series. I will seek out Ruby Ryan books when I am in the mood for a great shifter story. I suggest you do the same.
