"Bonded By Need" [Shifting Bonds Series, Book 1] by Nina Pierce

My Book Summary : Jayda is a polymorphic shifter female meaning she can shift into both a wolf and a cougar. Yet she has only recently accepted who she truly is with the help of Cole, her mate and the leader of the wolf council, who initiated her first shift into her wolf form. Because of how her cougar-self feels a bit dormant, they thought it would take a couple of years for it to emerge. That is until recently not long before Jayda meets Zane, the leader of the cougar council, who stirs the cougar inside of her wanting to come out. Now the three are faced with a decision they never expected to face ... will Jayda have to choose between them or can they find a way to appease them all? Especially before another incident comes a long to rip them all apart...

My Book Review : 2 out of 5 stars. Discover the transformation Jayda goes through once she becomes her true self while trying to listen to her heart.

I had high hopes for this novella, probably to high of hopes, but it wasn't as good as I hoped. Basically, I wished it was more like "Trinity" or something along the lines of "Silver Mine"--which in some ways they were both similar to it--but in most ways it wasn't. Mostly I was disappointed with how argumentative the guys were and how long it took them to reluctantly agree with the set up that Jayda wanted.

Therefore, I only recommend this novel to those who are fans of Ms. Pierce.

Author's Book Trailer :

Book Teaser(s) :
“Let’s just get out of here. You can take me back to the clinic and you and your cougars can come back and find the kits.”
The kits. He’d forgotten all about them. Zane went down on one knee and purred low in invitation. They popped out of the small crevice one at a time.
Jayda cooed. “Oh, you found them!”
“No, Jayda, you found them.” He picked one up by the scruff of the neck and smiled. “Not that I’d recommend this method again, but we have them.” Zane looked up the wall. “Now we just have to figure out how to get everyone back up to the truck.”
“Well, how did you get down here?” Jayda looked up, shading her eyes against the noonday sun. “I’m not sure I can climb.”
“I came down in cougar form. But I came in from that direction.” He turned and looked at the slope, trying to work out a solution. “I could carry you on my back.”
She didn’t respond. He turned to see her appraising him and his cock immediately stirred under her probing gaze. Embarrassed, he bent and let the kit join his sibling. “Stupid idea. Why don’t we both shift and we can each carry a kit in our mouths.” He shot her a look over his shoulder. “Do you feel well enough to shift?”
Her face flushed. “Yeah, but...” ~ within Chapter 3
