Summary

Riley Dawson is a psychotherapist with a lycanthropic affliction. She’s a werecoyote, to be precise.

A foundling adopted by wealthy parents, Riley led a privileged life until she fell in love with Fiona Bell, an evangelical preacher’s daughter. Raging hormones, the full moon, and the pull of Fiona Bell on her teenage heartstrings triggered her first transformation. Unfortunately, her parents witnessed the change and sent her off to college with a trust fund and an agreement never to return home.

Twenty years later, Riley shares a lucrative therapy practice with Dr. Margaret Spencer. Margaret, her wife, and her gay brother-in-law are the only ones who know Riley’s secret. Afraid of risking exposure, Riley restricts her love life to online hookups. But when a family is referred for treatment and Fiona Bell comes back into her life, all the rules of the client-therapist relationship are tested and Riley’s world is turned upside down.

Just love it

I have read the book multiple times, but to listen to it just makes the story come full circle and complete. The story is powerful , extremely well written and narrated. The theme is very real today unfortunately. Domestic violence reporting is at its highest in many states since this current federal administration, along with the string of global warming disasters that seems to bring out the worst in folks, rather than the opposite.

This story bring a real hopeful thought to the process and that folks will stand-up and reach out to help one another, maybe to the extreme of this story, but its a message that it is too easy to ge trapped in the cycle of abuse while you think you are doing your all to survive.

I hope the author make a sequel , maybe a novella just to push them and eddy along a few years down the road , maybe as Edy is ready to go off to college and Fiona gets her wild life sanctuary,

Great paranormal romance book

The characters are rich and well developed. The were aspect is actually addressed. While this is a romance, it is NOT over seed or soft porn. There is an actual plot.

The subject matter in this book can be intense and I would warn anyone who has trouble with domestic violence situations.

Overall great book and I see myself listening to this one again.

Great Preformance BUT

Depects graphic domestic abuse and homophobia to a digree that makes you have to stop from time to time. I liked the book and its definately worth the read but it is hard to get through at certian points.

As the Crow Flies

“As the Crow Flies.” I loved it! What a great plot. This read was hard for me to walk away from as life’s daily routine called. I caught myself thinking about the characters and what might happen next. The parallels and similarities, story structure and twists, in just the right amounts.
The sensual romantic buildups,the honesty of each character. This read will not disappoint.

I look forward to this authors next book.

Luna What?

I Love reading Shape-shifter books. This was a very believable story. Without any killing, and fighting for territory. I would love to listen to a sequel. Off to my next Adventure.

Great story with minor issues (spoiler free)

What I really liked about this story was how the author painted the world. I really felt like I could see everything that was happening in the story, watching the characters interact. I also really appreciated the brief lesson on Social Work vs Psychology, it's nice learning new things while experiencing a story. The narrator was great too, love her voice. I'm also glad that this wasn't just a straight up porno. The author easily could have made this into (a pretty darn good) porn if she wished, but the story isn't about the adult content and I like that.

This novel does have its issues though. My two main issues are the lack of believability in some of the characters and the amount of religion that got shoved in my face. A lot of the characters; minor and major, respond a bit abnormally to the situations presented, to the point that some don't feel like real people in their own world (the main character doesn't have this issue though). Besides that, there is a fair amount of religion that gets shoved in there, and it doesn't even feel like the religion chosen meshes with the story well. I feel like the author should have been more true to her characters instead of trying to fit her own religion into it.

Nonetheless, I really did enjoy this story and recommend this to anyone that likes the idea of non-angsty lesbian werewolves and wont mind a little preaching.

Absurdly good book

Absolutely awesome story, can't recommend enough. Theres some intense scenes of domestic violence sprinkled in there so be warned on that. Some other reviewers here mention that the book is long or has a lot of superfluous dialogue, but disregard that nonsense they don't seem to know what characterization is.

Very long

The story was nice but the author gave way too much detail that was not needed. I also wasn’t very excited about the narrator. She made the book longer. Upping the speed helped.

Not for Me

I don't really know what it is about this story and the characters. I just didn't feel the chemistry between the two and I have listened to many books read by Paige McKinney before and sometimes her voice is really irritating and it's hard to enjoy the story. I couldn't even finish listening to the story I stopped half way in. I wish I wouldn't have wasted the credit
