Independence Falls, Colorado. 1954. It was the start of a perfect summer--until the fog rolled in and changed everything. Now these heroes will explore their newfound abilities ... and each other.

Charlie Huston thought his life was over when a car crash destroyed his leg, ending his baseball career before it even began. That is, until he is trapped in the mysterious fog. When he recovers, he finds that he has an incredible new ability--he can transform into a mountain lion. Shifting into his animal form gives Charlie back all the freedom and strength he thought was lost for good, but he knows his friends and family would be horrified if they realized he could take the form of a predator. Then an emergency forces him to reveal his secret to the last person he would ever trust—the girl known in town as Briar the Liar.

Briar Rose Steele hasn't told the truth in years. She reinvented herself when she moved in with her aunt and uncle after the death of her parents. But ever since the fog, she's been incapable of telling anything but the truth--even when the truth hurts. So when Charlie Huston reveals himself as a shapeshifter, she can't pretend she doesn't know his secret. She also can't pretend that she isn't attracted to him. But Briar has another power--she can hear when people are lying. And in Independence Falls, there are plenty of secrets.

As she and Charlie work together to discover the truth about the fog, she'll have to face the truth about the town she loves ... and the truth about how Charlie makes her feel.

Shifted by Lily Cahill 
(Independence Falls Superhero Romance Book 4)

Shifted (Indpendence Falls Superhero Romance Book 4)The year is 1954, and Independence Falls has had its share of earth-shattering events and revelations. The young people who were changed by the mist have been outed and have risen far beyond normal heroicism when the mountain came down on the only highway into town. Still in shock, still wary of these superheroes, the town may still have to protect its own when the army comes marching in under the guise of military angels, until their pitchforks and horns show through.
Has everyone with an “ability” come forward? Charlie Huston has a secret and the last thing he wants is to have to expose himself to the legendary Briar the Liar, who for years grew up telling the most incredible falsehoods that she became a laughing stock to both young and old. But something is different about Briar, too, and like the boy who cried wolf too many times, no one believes she has an ability, even when tested. There they were, one hiding his ability and one trying to tell people that not only can she no longer lie, but she can tell when others around her are being dishonest, too.

When she learns of Charlie’s ability, they form a bond, two outcasts and two hearts looking for more. Like the story of Beauty and the Beast, this female lie detector and this shapeshifting man are in for more surprises than they could have imagined.

Lily Cahill brings the feel of an era long past and delivers it into our hands with Shifted while revealing two more Superheroes that the government would like nothing better than to have on their team. The feeling of a more innocent time comes through, as Lily Cahill takes a slightly different path in this addition to the series. The focus remains on Briar and Charlie throughout as Charlie must learn to accept his damaged body as a victim of an accident and learn to bring down the walls he has built. Who better to be honest with than the girl who can no longer lie? Once again, there is a sweetness, some humor and a little quirkiness here and there, which is what makes this series and Lily Cahill such an entertaining escape!

I received this copy from Lily Cahill in exchange for my honest review. 4.5 Stars
