first book in this series, I wasn't sold on it. I had felt like I had burned by this author with the Southern Vampire Series, which I loved at first then watched it wither and die on the vine, at least in my opinion. This series sounded intriguing though, so I gave it a whirl. The first book wasn't great, but it was good enough that I wanted to give it a second chance with Day Shift. And I am so glad that I did. I really enjoyed this book! The characters that felt incomplete last time were more focused, as was the story line. It was also riveting enough that I didn't really want to set it down, I just wanted to read and read it, always a good sign! I loved the characters this time around, and actually can't wait for the next book in the series, Night Shift.
