Lion's Share by Rachel Vincent. Vincent decided to self-publish this spinoff her her Werecats urban fantasy series. This one is supposed to be more of a romance and more New Adult than the first series. Here is the description from Amazon:
Abby Wade has a dangerous secret.Beginning:
Two months ago, she disobeyed an order, but instead of kicking her out of the Pride, Jace offered her a job. Since then, she’s been battling a completely inappropriate crush on the young, hot Alpha. But when accepting his job offer seems like the only way to keep her skeletons safely in their closet, Abby doesn’t hesitate.
Jace Hammond has a big problem.
A rogue is slaughtering humans in his territory, and he must eliminate the threat before the entire shifter species is exposed. There could not be a worse time for Abby to accept a job he only offered as a boost to her confidence. Abby is smart, beautiful, and resilient—more than enough to distract any man from the mission. Unfortunately, she may just be the worst enforcer ever to hold the title.
As they hunt the killer, Abby’s secret becomes a threat to Jace’s authority and to her own life. But the real danger is the grip she has on his twice-shy heart.
What they don't tell you about college is how much time you'll have to spend dodging your Alpha's call in order to get any studying done.Friday 56:
Or was that just me?
For one brief, unguarded moment, I wondered what a son of my own might look like. But that would never happen.
