BOOK BLURB:
Nick Carlyle understands the intricacies of his job better than anyone. He lives to crunch those numbers and his skills are valued throughout the company. If his personal life might be lacking, he doesn't notice, especially whenever he steals a harmless glance or two at Riley Jameson's tight body. But he's the boss, and that means look but don't touch.

When a universal flu shot is developed, it's hailed as a miracle, and rightly so. But the seemingly harmless side effects begin to change the world, warping the statistics that Nick's always used to guide him through life. Everything he thought he knew is suddenly upside down.

No one changes as much as Riley. Suddenly the young man is bigger, stronger. He's also aggressive in ways Nick isn't prepared for, and for the first time analyzing the numbers does nothing to help the situation.

Now, his numbers only add up when it comes to Riley.

BOOK REVIEW:
If you were told that one of the side effects from the flu shot was a change in your DNA would you take it? What if not getting it affected your job? What if you turned out to be one of those that the side effects hit the hardest? For someone like Nick, who is comfortable in the world of statistics and numbers, those are just a few of the things he has to worry about. The other is Riley and how the young man makes him feel.

One Shot is Rowan McBride's latest release. It is also a fun, fast paced read that is sure to delight many readers. The characters, from the overly confident Nick to the shy uncertain Riley, are interesting, especially when their roles change. There are several secondary characters that add a realistic feel to the story. While there are several areas in the story that had me chuckling, I also had to wonder if people will be affected this way by the new H1N1 vaccine if they took it like the characters in the book.

I am a big fan of Rowan McBride. I love the characters which always seem to fall so deeply for each other. I love the story lines with their touch of paranormal and reality. And I love the fact that there are endings to the stories that satisfy the reader. This book is sure to make its way to your keeper shelf just like it did to mine.
