Blurb: While working on his Master’s degree in psychology, Carson is offered an exclusive summer internship at a private research hospital. He can’t imagine a better career opportunity. But Harbor Oaks hides a dark secret. Carson soon discovers patients are being held against their will. They’re all shape shifters the government fears present a danger to society.

After meeting Tate, a shy, quiet doctor with an agenda all his own, Carson begins to question his own sanity. Carson soon realizes he’s really a subject of the scientist’s experiments, rather than an intern.

Carson knows what’s going on at Harbor Oaks is wrong, but to challenge the hospital’s policies could endanger his own life. More importantly, he could lose Tate forever.

Review: Ana has a pretty good imagination and can spin a wonderful story with it. I was amazed at this story. It caught my attention from the start and kept my attention all the way to the end. I had spent most of my day being bored till I came across this cute little story. It made my day get better, when I can lose myself into a book and can imagine what is going around me. I loved the way Carson and Tate interacted with each other. Carson takes an exclusive summer internship at a private research hospital to earn his Master’s Degree in Psychology. He finds out all of the patients are shape shifters that the government thinks is dangerous.

Tate is a doctor there with a different agenda. Carson starts asking questions and finds out he isn’t there as an intern but as a scientist experiment. Carson starts feeling things for Tate, but how can he keep him and get help for everyone there. What Tate is hiding is important for the changelings best interest. To keep them all alive and safe from those who want to hurt them.

This story has a lot of interesting surprises. I love the twist it has and can’t wait to read more. This is the only thing I really hated, that I was left without a true ending. It keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat. I can’t wait to read book two of this series because I think it will be a hit.
