Summary

Reports to write, forms to fill, coffee to drink, leads to run down, organized crime syndicates to break.

Gus’ life had been a tedium and boredom he’d grown comfortable with. One that he sought out after he’d come back from his tour of duty.

That was before Melody, a contractor, more or less blew his life up as if it were a building packed full of C-4.

Then helped him make a new life, which he himself ended blowing up.

A cushy new job with the FED, thrown out the window with a single gunshot.

All based on an assumption of who was working for who, and that he’d been on the wrong side of the equation.

And so ended his career in law enforcement after he became the assassin of a presidential candidate.

Now Gus is on to the next job - this time, working for his contractor and wife. The job they’re about to be given is a high-paying one.

The thing is, that the people they’re going up against? They’re just out to see the world burn. To send it screaming back down into the dark ages.

It’s a good thing that he’s a Boogieman.

Because being an apex predator that made the entirety of the paranormal world fear him was something he could fall back on even in this situation. To hunt, investigate, and watch from the shadows.

Wouldn’t be the first time he’d put his life on the line, either.

Unfortunately, for everyone involved, the long forgotten and primordial past was rearing its ugly head.

Gus knows he can certainly punch above his own weight class, but this case might just be the one that ends him.

Warning and minor spoiler: This novel contains graphic violence, undefined relationships/harem, unconventional opinions/beliefs, and a hero who is as tactful as a dog at a cat show. Listen at your own risk.

Woah, what next?

I would suggest that if you’re going to read / listen to these books that you google all books by this author and read them in order. There is so much that makes sense, only if you’ve read previous books. Characters that pop in and out are the stars (or at least feature more prevalently) of previous books. You’ll be fine without reading them as long as you’ve read the rest in this series, but I feel like you’d gain more from reading all the other books first.
I can’t get enough of this author, plus the excellent narration by Andrea Parsneau.
I actually started listening to the audible versions of these books because of her narration of another series. And it’s so worth it.

Beautifully written and put together, each story unveils a little bit more of the back story of each character and what drives them. In a world ending (as they know it) situation, with living monsters and nightmares, it’s a basic tale of good vs evil. At the heart of it, love and friendship, brotherhood, and a heavy dose of squaddie humour lead the way.
I laughed out loud, I cried as my heart broke, and was engrossed in a world where the boogie man, and a whole host of paranormal species usually seen as the monster can be the hero.

Amazing as usual

I love the universe, the characters and the narration. My only "complaint" is that I have to wait on the next audio release :p

Done with swing shift

Loved the first 2. Fan of other titles. This one sealed my interest for the swing shift group. Nope. Little action. Listened to the whole thing hoping for a story. Nope. Attraction descriptions for sex starved pre teen boys. So sad.

Series is still going strong

OK, so the first book really gave a neat world, and this one can't keep up with that.

BUT, it is still a really good book. Great crossover from Incubus Inc, and it seems like it falls during the second book on the timeline, but from a different point of view. This book also doesn't have as much steamy sex and instead has a lot more plot building. I think this series could keep going for a while if it keeps this up.

The narrator is amazing! the amount of different voices as well as inflection really pulls you in and makes you feel like you are listening to a group of people.

Overall I would definitely suggest this book if you liked either of the first two or any of the incubus Inc. books.

Swing Shift Book is!

Great as always and I cannot wait for Monster's Mercy 2 and 3. Like many others I buy these books the second they hit audible and this is the main reason I keep my subscription. Andrea Parsneau does an amazing job and is one of my favorite narrators just wish she was not so backed up.

Melody a bit much

Melody was a bit much this go around,the level of possessiveness was not as endearing as the last few books. But was still a great book!

book 4?

loved books 1 and 2, enjoyed book 3 too, as far as it went. Swing Shift 3 felt completely unfinished. 3 books to solve a case and learn all the necessary pieces of the puzzle. Then BOOM IS OVER. No completion to the story. of three is going to be a book 4 I will retract this review.

not bad

I do enjoy seeing my girl Kit again but was not happy at all with what happened to Vanessa. The imp however was a very nice addition she was simply adorable.

Great Series

A very good 3 book series. Very well read and enough action in her voice to keep you hooked.
