Let me be that I am and seek not to alter me …

Tris Cousins, an architect and reluctant shifter, celebrates her first lead project by taking a ruggedly handsome stranger to bed. But when she arrives in Verona to work on the Carpathian-Romero memorial, she realizes that her handsome stranger is the town’s hardware store owner … and he’s not happy to be working with someone who owes fealty to the Carpathians. They’ll have to work together and try to forget that one night of passion.

Ben Romero’s hatred of the Carpathians has become all-consuming, and Tris becomes the focus of his hate. She’s uptight, haughty … and unbelievably sexy. It’d be best for everyone if Ben refused to work with Tris, but if he’s going to pay for his sister’s pricey tuition, he needs her business. Ben agrees to help Tris, but every encounter leaves him twisted up with anger and desire. Ben has to overcome his hatred … or risk losing the only woman who makes him feel alive. 

The heat between Tris and Ben is incendiary, but will it end in love … or hate?

Tris has her first chance to prove herself taking on a project that has family ties but it's just what she needs to make a name for herself. After a steamy one night stand, she heads off for Verona to start her tribute to the young lovers who committed suicide. Little did she know that her one night stand Ben just happens to be living in Verona. He also just happens to be the local hardware store where she planned to use for the build. 

Ben never expected to see Tris again least of all in his shop working for the Carpathians which are to blame for the death of his cousin. While he would like to refuse to work with her he's raising his little sister and needs the money for her schooling. The pair finds themselves drawn to each other falling in love but when a misunderstanding comes between them will they be able to fix it? Will two rival families be able to settle their difference? 

I like both Ben and Tris they work well together and complement each other perfectly. I love the idea that they are two of my favorite Shakespeare characters from my favorite play. They are just so perfect for each other and I knew after that one night that they would see they are destined to be together. 

I've had this series on my to-read list for a while but never got around to it yet. I've been wanting to read the 4th one because it's a shifter spin on my favorite play. I admit I skipped the first three to jump right to book 4 and I don't feel that I missed much other than getting to know prior characters that are in this one. I love the authors spin on a classic enhancing the story using shifters was brilliant in my mind. I also love that the author used some of the dialogue from the play like when Tris and Ben are verbally sparring. This is one of those books I couldn't put down reading in one sitting. I loved every moment and plan to go back to read the prior books. Highly recommend if you are a fan of Shakespeare and shifter happy ever after you check this series out.
