Publisher's Summary

She wants to bang a werewolf, not become one.

Sophie Burroughs is determined to be a witch. Her grandmother was a witch. All the other supes say she smells like a witch, but she can’t cast a spell to save her life.

Sprouting fur is so not on her to-do list.

But when a smokin' hot werewolf bites her and then accuses her of crimes against his pack, she has until the next full moon to prove him wrong and stop his magic from transforming her into a wolf.

A romp in the sack would be a nice bonus, too.

Trace Thibodeaux didn’t mean to bite Sophie. The red wolves have been cursed, she's the prime suspect, and if he wants to keep his rank in the pack, he has to end her magic by any means necessary.

But that doesn’t include sheathing his sword in a witch’s scabbard.

He’s gotten into bed with the enemy before, and that’s a mistake he’ll never make again.

Or will he?

If you like funny heroines and smoldering shifters, you'll love this steamy paranormal romantic comedy.

Hilarious Paranormal Romantic Comedy Series!

This is the second book in the New Orleans Nocturnes Series. The storyline is hilarious, interesting, and intriguing. This is a great Paranormal Romantic Comedy Series. Holly Jackson did a fantastic job with the narration. Looking forward to listening to Life's a Witch, the next book in the Series.

A fun paranormal romance

Sophie was born to be a witch, but she doesn’t have any magical abilities… or does she? Now there’s a werewolf in the picture and Sophie has a decision to make.

Carrie Pulkinen has written an entertaining story that has its steamy moments as well as lots of humor and witty innuendos. I loved it!

Hollie Jackson really brought this story to life. I enjoyed how she presented the characters.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Witch + Werwolf = Romance

I loved this audiobook! I love how you meet Sophie in book 1 and incorporate book 2 to her story and her meeting with the handsome Trace, a werewolf. What can go wrong... or right :). This story is a lot of fun to listen to and some hot romance. ❤️

Soooo funny!

I loved this book. I was laughing the entire time it was being read to me. Audiobooks are great because you can multitask while they are being read to you. “Shift Happens” was so good, I would rewind it just to be sure I didn’t miss anything! It kept me smiling and upbeat the entire time. Also, the narrator of this book makes the characters come to life with her accents and change in tone when reading quotes. I listened to the first book in the “New Orleans Nocturnes” series, and when I saw the second one available, I was so excited to listen to it! This author writes in such a modern tone that it makes me feel like I’m living it. I look forward to reading and listening to more books by Carrie Pulkinen.

Werewolves, Witches & Steamy Romance

This is a new genre for me, I love all things witches but never read many books about them.
This book was so fun, funny and engaging. I love listening to audiobooks it makes me feel so much closer to the characters. The narrator dos a great job of demonstrating the emotions of the character. My favourite was the sassiness of some of the characters, I could picture them acting in my head.
It has me intrigued to read the first book in the series. I very much enjoyed this audiobook, if you love werewolves and witches but mostly steamy romances THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU!

Another fun paranormal romp

I love Pulkinen’s writing and thoroughly enjoyed experiencing this story through audio. The narrator does a nice job conveying the emotion of all of the characters, especially the sass of a southern lady who is trying desperately to fit in to the supernatural community without an ounce of magic to her name, or so she thinks. A fun book and a fun listen.

Hilariously Witty

Shift Happens..... just the title gives you an indication of how witty and hilarious Carrie Pulkinen's writing is. She's a master with comedy and character development. This second book in the series is just as good as the first.
Hollie Jackson did an amazing job with the narration and really brought an extra layer to the characters and story

I'm excited for the next one especially the witty title

Shift Happens by Carrie Pulkinen

Shift Happens: A Frightfully Fun Paranormal Romance by Carrie Pulkinen
Narrated by Hollie Jackson

Shift Happens is just as funny and feel good as License To Bite was. Carrie Pulkinen is on my must listen to list. I would suggest you listen to this series in order. It will definitely be worth your time. They had me laughing out loud. Sophie and Trace are a perfect blend and add Jane, Ethan, Gaston, Crimson and Jackson in the story is full of witty dialogue and New Orleans charm. I look forward to listening to the rest of the books in New Orleans Nocturnes series.

Hollie Jackson also narrated this book and it is wonderfully brilliant. Her accent was great and she really hit the laugh factor. I will be keeping my out for other books narrated by her.

Shift Happens

Shift Happens (New Orleans Nocturnes Book Two) AUDIO BOOK by Carrie Pulkinen was a great listen. I loved Sophie in the first book and she just shines in this one. You do not need to read/listen to the first one to fit right into this one. Trace and Sophie were on fire and I loved their interactions. I loved the twists in the story and the dialogue felt genuine.

Way to funny with this paranormal romance

Book 2 in the series. What can I say about : Carrie Pulkinen. Everyone should listen and read her stories. This is bookm2 in the series but it can be listened to as a stand-alone. Each story is about a different couple that connects and things happen. This one is no different.
Hero is Marks. Heroine is Sophie.
Marks is second in command of his pack. The Apha gives him a command , to find his pack mate , Jackson, who went puff , disappeared. Sophie is a witch or she tries to be , her grandmother was a powerful witch, with Sophie what ever she tries nothing happens.
The pack think that Sophie put a spell on Jackson and the pack. Not only that but Marks bit Sophie 98% she might change into a wearwolf. Grab it and see if Sophie gets her wish and becomes a Witch or does she turn into a wearwolf. What happened to Jackson

Hollie Jackson Is fantastic with her performance. She did all the characters great. You can tell which character is who by Hollie tone

Better Than the First

Title: Shift Happens
Author: Carrie Pulkinen
Format: Audio
Narrator: Hollie Jackson
Genre: Paranormal romantic comedy, romantic suspense, witches, werewolves, enemies to lovers
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Series: New Orleans Nocturnes boon 2
POV: Sophie and Trace
Steam Level: Slow burn to steamy
4/5

Shift Happens is the second book in the New Orleans Nocturnes series. Shift Happens is a standalone but if you want to know more about Jane (Sophie's vampire best friend) then read the first book (Licensed to Bite) too. I enjoyed Shift Happens better than the first book. Trace's best friend and pack-mate is missing and Sophie is the main suspect. I figured out who the culprit was relatively quickly but the where the friend was I completely missed. And I giggled when Trace called Sophie out for missing it as well. Loved the snark and emotion and giggles.

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobooks Unleashed. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Absolutely brilliant

Shift Happens: New Orleans Nocturnes, Book 2 Audiobook by Carrie Pulkinen is a fantastic audio version is an incredible book. Having already read this I knew I really enjoyed the book but I wasn’t expecting the narration to bring the book to life so much. It made it so easy to picture the characters and the adventure that was awaiting for them. I loved being able to visualise every aspect of the book. And the person they got to narrate this was the absolute perfect choice. Her voice drew me in completely and I loved the fact that the accent matched the story so well. It really made for a much more immersive experience and couldn’t not have been done any better. I have a read a lot of books by this author, who has easily become one of my favourites, and from now on I will definitely be listening to more.

RomCom, very easy to listen to

Although this is book 2 in the series, it is a standalone.
This was a brilliant light hearted romance. Sophie has followed her best friend and moved to New Orleans. Now that she knows about the supernatural, she wants to fulfill her dream of being recognised as a witch; after all she has her late grandmother's grimoire, so she must be a witch.
Getting bitten by a werewolf and being accused of cursing the werewolf pack was not in her plans. Trace just wants to find his best friend and he thinks he knows just the witch responsible, only he hadn't counted on biting and being so attracted to her.Together they try and solve the mystery of the missing wolf.
I loved the interactions of all these characters, the lighthearted humour just made it so much more entertaining.
The narration from Hollie Jackson is top class and she brings such a warmth to the characters that you can't help love them. I would definitely listen to other books narrated by Hollie.

Another great book

I’m so loving this series it’s entertaining and fun. This book follows Sophie who is Janes BFF from book one . Sophie has as much sass as Jane and when she meets Trace under weird circumstances they can’t deny the feelings between them.
