The visit to Elk Ridge is supposed to be just another assignment for Tom Barrington. Then he encounters Bryce Reynolds, a generous, warmhearted cowboy who has the easiest smile he’s ever seen. It doesn’t take long for Tom to break all his rules and end up in Bryce’s bed.
Bryce Reynolds believes there’s no such thing as a hot politician, right up until he meets Tom Barrington. Tall, dark, and principled, Tom overturns all of Bryce’s prejudices, and Bryce starts to forget that he doesn’t do serious and he doesn’t do commitment.
As Bryce and Tom struggle to make sense of what’s happening between them, they’re drawn into a political battle—one which could affect the future of every shifter. And when long-buried secrets start coming to light, things turn deadly. Nothing will ever be the same again for the Elk Ridge pack.

Shifting Sands is the forth book in the Strength of the Pack series by author Joy Lynn Fielding. This book is not a stand alone.  It heavily relies on the previous books.  I liked this one for many reasons. One being the pack politics we are really getting to see how the pack order works and who answers to who.  I like that we are getting to know different packs too.  The main love story between Tom and Bryce is the focus but I liked the secondary stories as well.
Bryce is the beta of the pack. He is used to protecting the pack from everyone and everything. So when the council starts bringing people in to poke around, of course he is protective.  I liked his nature he is not so protective that he is unlikeable. He has a heart and it shines through in all he does.
Tom I think he goes through the most changes in this book. He is more laid back. He doesn’t want to judge anything too soon. Slow and cautious though gets thrown out the window when dealing with Bryce.  Sometimes mixing business with pleasure is a lot of fun.
Over all this is a must read in the Strength of the Pack series. Lots of changes for the pack are coming and this book does a great job of paving the way for them. There is a ton of great story inside the pages of this love story.  I liked that the most. Really is a series I can sink into and enjoy.
