Synopsis (Goodreads):
FUC is going down under, so prepare for a wild ride with a ‘roo and the chick he rescues.

Ranger and crypto containment specialist Jaxon Jones has seen some interesting things, but a purported giant ostrich terrorizing suburbia is new, even for him. Especially when he finds the so-called menace, and she’s fast asleep, head buried in a bush. But since Jax was hired to bring the beautiful Mari home, he’ll endure her sass. Especially since it’s what draws him to her.

Newly rescued from a mad scientist’s lab, Mari isn’t the same. Sure she still suffers the embarrassment of dropping an egg every time she’s taken by surprise, but what really scares her is when her darkness takes over and she blacks out. Now, the gorgeous and frustrating Jax keeps stuffing her in cages and insists that he was hired by her dead father to bring her back to a place she’s never been. And he refuses to feed her meat. Mari doesn’t know what to do with the sexy kangaroo. Though she knows what she’d like to do with him…

Someone wants the darkness that prowls inside Mari. Badly. But Mari’s more worried about what she could do to Jax and their allies if she can’t control herself. Will this unlikely pair have their g’day, or will their foes and Mari’s inner demons prove too much?
Thoughts on Ostrich and the 'Roo: Oh, man. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy these shapeshifters and their somewhat whacked outlook on life. I mean, Jax is a pretty upstanding guy. Except when he's not. You know, like when he's helping his family commit some larceny. Or...whatever it is they're up to.

He and his family are just refreshingly crazy and I LIKE that in my shifters.

Mari, on the other hand, is fairly normal. Except for the whole blacking out thing and waking up in questionable places with blood on her. Pfft. Who DOESN'T that happen to sometimes? AMIRITE? Anyway. Due to her unfortunate time as a guest of Mastermind, she has a darker side that likes to rear up on occasion. Good thing she has a crazy 'Roo and his equally crazy family to help keep her in line.

Dastardly deeds, romance (of a sort) on the high seas, a little spilled blood, and an ostrich who drops the occasional surprise egg. GOOD TIMES! I'm all in for more of the Jones clan and their adventures Down Under.
