Summary: Aura’s life is anything but easy. Her boyfriend, Logan, died, and his slides between ghost and shade have left her reeling. Aura knows he needs her now more than ever. She loves Logan, but she can’t deny her connection with the totally supportive, totally gorgeous Zachary. And she’s not sure that she wants to.
Logan and Zachary will fight to be the one by her side, but Aura needs them both to uncover the mystery of her past—the mystery of the Shift.
As Aura’s search uncovers new truths, she must decide whom to trust with her secrets…and her heart.

My Thoughts: Wow, I did not think I could love Shift as much as I loved Shade. I ended up loving it even more. Shift was full of tears, happiness, anxiety, love, fear, romance, family. 

In Shade we were introduced to the world of anyone under 18 can see ghosts. In Shift, we start to discover why the Shift happened. Aura and Zach are trying to find out why they are in the middle of it and how it effects them. Logan is also back and for 15 minutes every so often he becomes solid. A real live person with a body! A body that Aura can touch and kiss. A body that can play music again and sleep. Intense right? Aura's feelings are jumbled because not only does she have feelings for both Zach and Logan but a third mystery guy comes into the picture and not who you would expect. Talk about a love triangle 

In Shift, Logan's family is dealing with his being gone (sorta), Zach and Aura are dealing with their feelings for each other, Logan is trying to cope with letting Aura move on (even though he really isn't dealing well or letting her) and Aura is trying to find out more about her mother. Who was her mother really? Did she know Zach's father? Were they connected? 

As Aura gains speed on finding out her mother's secrets, there are certain people who don't want her to know the truth. For some of the book, Aura and Zach are trying to find out secrets and on the run from people on their tail. 

Instead of enough questions being answered, more questions are asked. I want to know the answer to all my questions. As Shade ended on a cliffhanger, and Shift also had a cliffhanger. Enough of one, that made me want to go see Zach! 

My favorite scene was Aura and Zach in the water! How awesome was that? How romantic was it? Oh Yes!! 

Whats more to say? A LOT! I want Shine right now! I want to know what happens next! I loved Shift. I loved how beautiful it is. I cried a few times, I smiled a lot of times. I laughed a few times! I yelled a few times. 

Shift was amazing, full of beauty, and the 3 boys within it, are HOT! Every single one of them! HOT! 

Overall: Loved! Wish I could get my hands on Shine right now! Loved Aura and her boys!

Cover:This cover is just as gorgeous as Shade's cover! These covers are perfect.
