Money For Nothing is the second book in the Shapeshifter Series by Julie Tetel Andresen. The story follows Wendy Osceola and Jackson Cypress, two were-panthers finding love when they least expect it. Wendy left Miami behind and started her private investigation business in Orlando to get away from the drama of her family. She had no idea her tracking instincts led her to her neighbor’s backyard where she found a strange device. Wendy had no idea she would meet Jackson, a were-panther as well. Jackson was the Chief Deputy of Miami PD and was working on a strange case of online love scammers. He enlisted Wendy to help with the case, without realizing they had chemistry waiting to sizzle. However, they had a duty to follow and destinies to fulfill. Even if they felt an undeniable spark, neither could afford to fall in love. But when fate decides something, nothing can get in the way.
I loved the first novel of the series, and I loved Money For Nothing as well. I enjoyed how author Julie Tetel Andresen presents strong and feisty female protagonists and builds the story around them. Wendy was smart, cunning, and almost too intelligent for her own good. She and Jackson complemented each other well. Their personalities were contrasting in the best way possible, which meant readers got to enjoy some lively banter, bickering, and witty dialogues. The pace was fast, and the narrative was strong. Andresen did her absolute best to create an environment that made the mystery behind the online scammers rich without giving much away. The characters were given ample time to develop properly, the dialogues were written to intrigue readers, and the romance was dramatic enough to keep them guessing if Wendy and Jackson would end up together or not.
