Rock bottom.

Liam had set up shop there.

After an accident left him injured and unable to work, it wasn’t long before he ended up on the street with his dreams in the gutter.

This was it.

This was his life.

Until the day he met Max Porter—a man who appeared to have it all. They didn’t meet so much as made eye contact as Max sneered at Liam, the bum occupying precious space on the sullied New York City street.

When Max stepped into oncoming traffic, a lesser man might’ve let him. But Liam risked his life to save Max only to be left to die without a second thought.

When Liam woke up days later, he wasn’t himself…at least he wasn’t in his body.

He was in Max’s.

And with Liam’s body on life support, there was only one logical conclusion: Max was trapped in Liam’s comatose body.

Somehow the twisted hands of fate had given Liam a second chance; a chance to have it all. But with all the perks of Max’s life also came his problems. Finding balance in his new identity was challenged more so once Liam fell for Waverly, Max’s beautiful ex.

Could Liam live out his life as another man or would he pull the plug and let fate decide?

Would he lose his chance at true love?

Would he lose the chance to have it all?
 
 
 
Scooting up, his body was gloved to mine, his mouth to my ear as he reached around me and pulled my left hand, placing it over the shifter, then he took my right hand and settled it over the throttle. “Think of this like a dance,” he instructed me, his voice husky. “Dance involves steps, coordination, knowing your partner. This isn’t much different.”

“Says you,” I griped. “This is hardly a dance partner. This is a death trap that could kill us.”

He chuckled, the sound low and deep, making my core clench. “You’re sitting on over five-hundred pounds of machinery here. Think about how much time and effort went into building this; the way someone had to know this bike so intricately to put it all together and make it move.”

“Just because they knew it doesn’t mean I do.” I appreciated the intricacy of the bike, but appreciating and driving it were very different things.

“I just mean there’s power here. You can make these 500 pounds of metal move if you want it to, if you trust yourself enough.”

He left my hands and softly ran his fingers up my arms to my shoulders. “It lives and moves so long as you let it, so long as you lead it, just like a good dance partner. Don’t think about the moves you need to make . . . feel them. Let the bike tell you when it’s time to shift.”

His fingers glided down my sides until they took a firm hold of my waist causing my breath to hitch as my back arched slightly. “It’s give and release, Waverly,” he went on, his voice deep and gravely. “You have to feel when it’s time to give and when it’s time to let go.”

Darting my tongue out, I wet my dry lips. How did he make shifting gears sound so hot? How in the heck was I supposed to manage this machine with Liam murmuring sexual innuendo in my ear? I wished I could somehow turn around and take him on the bike.

“You know, this would be an epic opening to a porn flick,” I announced causing him to burst into laughter.

“I hadn’t thought of that.” His body shook as he continued to laugh.

“I guess your mind isn’t as dirty as mine.” I shrugged.

“I guess not. What would the film title be?” he queried.

I twisted my mouth in thought. In my sexiest voice, I twisted my neck so he could see me as I pouted my mouth, “Shifting the Panhead. When good girls learn to ride.”

He choked he was laughing so hard. When he could form words again, he coughed out, “That does sound pretty dirty when you say it like that.”

“Anything can sound dirty when you say it the right way,” I quipped. “Sky,” I moaned. “Concrete,” I continued.

“Okay, okay,” he begged before clearing his throat. “Stop stalling your lesson with your dirty mind and your defiling of perfectly unperverted words.”

I wiggled my ass again. “You love how I defiled the word concrete. Admit it.”

“You keep shimmying your ass like that, this lesson is going to have to end while I go jump in the water.”
 



4 STAR REVIEW


I would like to start out by saying; read the blurb. If a story about body switching is too far reaching for you then this might not be the book for you. I personally loved it and if you are looking for a sweet romance story with a bit of magic then you will love this.

Liam is homeless after losing his job after a work injury. He worked hard to keep his head about water but eventually he ended up on the street.

Max is a horrible man that is wealthy and appears to have it all. Liam tries to save Max by pushing him out of the way of an oncoming bus. Max is saved but Liam is left for dead. Liam soon wakes up in Max’s body and Liam’s body is still on life support in the hospital.

Waverly is the mother of Max’s child and is trying to sever ties with him. Of course when she goes to finalize papers with Max he is no longer Max. She is left wondering why he has changed and angry over his abandonment.

This story pulled me in right away. Of course I was curious to see how this would play out and who would get their HEA. Liam is thrown into a life he isn’t used to but is determined to figure out why this happened and how to fix it. He starts digging into Max’s life and discovers a lot of secrets about him. And along the way he falls in love with Max’s little girl Pimberly and eventually Waverly.

I really enjoyed this story. I did have a bit of a struggle with believing Liam and Waverly’s love. I just felt their connection was missing something. If you are looking for a sweet fairytale romance I think you will love this one. I am hoping we get a story for another character in the book. The way things ended I can see potential for a great story there. Well Done!

ANGIE'S 5 STAR REVIEW
I have to admit I was skeptical. I was devastated at the end of Blood of Eve and I had no idea where Godwin was going to go from there. I mean where could she go?! But this ended up being the best of the series and a finale done fucking right. Well done, Pam. Seriously.

I'm so hesitant to say more because discussing the plot would be revealing what happened in book two. But I will say if you love paranormal, dystopian/post-apocalyptic, erotica, originality, badass heroines, m/m/m/f, and Godwin's writing in general then what are you waiting for? The series is complete. Get reading.

About the Author
CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up she's at the well hauling buckets.
Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.
She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
