    • 3.5 starsWell, this was interesting. And a cliffhanger. Which I didn't know about and as we all know cliffhangers suck!I picked this up because I've never read about shark shifters and I have to say it made a nice change. The prologue grips you and the plot makes you want to know more. For an erotic romance it had an actual plot and the couple didn't get "busy" until after the 55% mark. You expect Koenraad to be more like:But instead he is more:Maybe not exactly that but he's not a ruthless oppo [...]


    • 3 to 3.5★ At first I was doubtful about this. I mean, shark shapeshifter! I haven’t encountered one yet, a dolphin, a seal, yes. But shark? Hell, they eat people! So okay, here goes the adventure.So, first of all, so that you might not be blindsided like me, this is a cliffhanger, one I haven’t realized after I have finished reading and frankly, that’s quite a frustration. I haven’t gotten over it, actually. Until now. I mean, argh!But, well, it was a slow build to something I want to [...]


    • This book is free, and thank god for it as it's a serial and it ends midaction :/. I believe it should have a warning otherwise it's cheating. At this point I don't know if all the other books are part of the serial or just the second. Stay clear.


    • I've read a fair amount of erotica in my life, and a very large portion of those titles contain shifters that are either some sort of jungle cat or most commonly, a wolf. I tried passing this book by as I looked through titles, but I just couldn't do it. How often does one stumble across a shifter romance where the hunky lead's shifting form is a shark? I thought this would be just what I needed to get out of the wolf-cat shifter romance rut I've been in, and I was largely correct. I really like [...]


    • This is not a novel. It's barely a novella. There's no completed story arc once the beginning and conflict is set up; the story is lacking a proper climax (well, there are climaxes, but of a different sort; more on that later). The story began, set up a mystery, then set up another mystery, began to explore them, then the book ended with no clear resolution. Even if you set up an over-arcing storyline to a series of books, in each individual book there's always a smaller mystery that gets explor [...]


    • I have to say this wasn't what i was expecting. I'm used to Bears, Wolfs, lions, and other cat shifters. But a shark is something new and I was pleasantly surprised. I mean it was unique and the story was good. I was dragged in and didn't want to put it down. Monroe hasn't had much luck in the men department. Here she is now one of the last of her friends to not be married or in the engaged stage. She's happy but sad at the same time. Her ex boyfriend was a jerk and none of her friends liked him [...]


    • Surprisingly good freebie. This was a hot little novella about a shark shifter. I was curious if I would find the guy in any way hot, as I do not like sharks at all. I am afraid of them, and I do not like to watch them or would ever go into any body of water where there could be sharks What I liked here was, that the shark shifter was kind of alien. He was not simply a human with somehing more tagged onto him. The love interest was not a model beauty, but a normal woman. And it was hot. Onl [...]


    • 4.5 stars for this first book of the Shark Shifter series. It's capturing from the start and bloody hot! I have an idea but am looking forward to see where Cleo takes this story! I know she's full of surprises! I'm not into the paranormal/shifter stuff and therefore am pretty picky. And it was a bit weird to read for me, but I was totally hooked!It's a really good story, great characters and beautiful location. It's like taking a little vacation from real life in paradise!They both are hot toget [...]


    • This was a lot of fun. Much better (like *much* better) than I expected, I mean "shark shifter paranormal romance" - that's about as far out of my reading range as War and Peace.This didn't take as long to read as War and Peace, and neither did I have to think about it too much!Monroe (I love the heroine's name) and Koenraad meet on Monroe's vacation to a Carribean Island known in folklore for having shark warriors who protect the island and its people (I'm not quite sure from what). Monroe's on [...]


    • I saw this book pop up in my feed and I was like hmmmm Sharks! I've never done shark shifters before So I went over to my scribd and they were ALL available! I have to say this was a very unique and well thought out story. The world building was very natural and I found it didn't repeat itself like some paranormal stories do, and this could've easily fallen in this trap because no one has done shark shifters, or should I say they aren't a popular concept. I'm not sure why how much more Alpha can [...]


    • I came across this book in a freebie thread and I thought how would that work I mean a shark shifter so I was curious and I have read this author before. This was a very good book its the first book in a new series. Koenraad who is mourning the lost of his only son he is rich, sexy and a shark shifter. Monroe is attending a friends wedding at a beachfront resort after being told by her boyfriend that she is boring but hot. Monroe decides to try adventure and she meets Koenraad in the ocean and s [...]



    • Posted on Les Romantiques - Le forum du siteReviewed by RinouReview Copy from the PublisherI must confess that I requested Touching Paradiese because the idea of a wereshark intrigued me. After all the shark is not the animal which comes spontaneously to mind when talking about sexiness and cuddles. But obviously we are wrong, the shark is just much misunderstood.While she’s on a paradisiacal island for one of her friends’ wedding, Monroe meets an extremely attracting man who succeeds in mak [...]


    • When this book showed up on Netgalley I could not hit “request” quickly enough. Who could resist the idea of a shark shifter? I was so curious to see how this was handled, after all sharks aren’t exactly what one would think of as the cuddliest sort of animal. I have to say though, the book definitely exceeded my hopes and expectations. My first impression of our heroine Monroe is that she is lonely, despite being surrounded by friends. She is smart, and a bit shy, but curious and fairly o [...]


    • I was a little skeptical about Touching Paradise since sharks don't exactly give off warm fuzzy feelings, but this was pretty entertaining. Monroe is on a tropical island for a friend's wedding when she meets Koenraad on a snorkeling trip gone awry. Koenraad had been casually swimming by the boat, investigating something in the water that didn't feel right, when he sees Monroe. Attracted and curious Koenraad decides to pursue Monroe while also juggling an increasingly problematic issue with the [...]


    • Touching Paradise by Cleo Peitsche is an interesting read. I’ve read lot of paranormal, but not a shark shifter and am taken in with this story.Koenraad is a billionaire manning the waters of his island. Human by day as a respectable businessman and a shark by night patrolling the evil infested waters, searching for his lost son, he is a man tormented with past betrayal and pain. Fate brings Monroe into his world and he cannot seem to get over her.Monroe is on vacation attending a friend’s w [...]


    • I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Wow -- I have to say that I wasn't expecting such an addictive and sizzling hot book when I picked this one up. Shark shifters? I'm open to new things, but wasn't really expecting such a fun and well written little book. As someone who usually doesn't have trouble hopping from book to book, I can't stop thinking about finding the next book in this series. It has definitely made me into an addict for shark sifter romance. This story [...]


    • I snagged Touching Paradise because it was a freebie, and I've been trying to find some not the norm type of shifter books. This one, as you can tell by the cover is a shark shifter novella. Can't say I've been introduced to that type of shifter before so I knew I had to snag it. *plays Jaws music*Monroe is a woman visiting a beach paradise for her friend's wedding. She's a bit sad though due to her boyfriend bailing on attending the wedding with her and in the fight that ensued he said some pre [...]


    • OK, when I read the blurb about a alpha billionaire shark shape shifter, of course I rolled my eyes. But I read this story for a book challenge and when I got to the end all I could say was NOOOOOOO! It can't end here! So, first of all - this is a cliffhanger. The next installment is out, but I believe this is a serial so, read at your own frustrating risk!Koenraad is a big, gorgeous, wealthy guy who happens to be a shark! He works in security for the shark shifter community, which is declining. [...]


    • **************************MIGHT CONTAIN SPOILERS*******************************First off the guy's profile on the cover reminded me of Joseph Morgan you know Klaus from 'The Vampire Diaries' and 'The Originals', so the cover totally caught my eye and made me want to read the book. While reading this book there were times I found myself wondering, are their issues going to get resolved and the answer is no, because we are left with a big ole' cliffhanger with issues still up in the air. There is [...]


    • I admit I have a problem with unusual shifter stories. I'll pick up anything if it's an odd shifter character (not a wolf, big cat, etc). Often times it doesn't work out for me but I can't seem to stop myself. When I saw shark shifter I couldn't say no. I was so pleased that this was a good story. I really enjoyed it. Koenraad is a great white shark shifter who patrols the waters around a Caribbean island. Monroe is visiting the island for the wedding of a friend. She is coming out of a bad rela [...]


    • Wow!! I have to admit, this book left me wishing shark shifters were real!!! Can not wait until i read book two!!! It starts off with the main character Keonnard who's a gorgeously sexy hot tall beautiful shark shapeshiter whom patrolled the ocean perimeter of a small Caribbean island. He meets Monroe who's a New Yorker vacationing on the island and who's also, conveniently, terrified of swimming in the ocean. Like all love stories, they "click" with each other; but it's differenta good scary di [...]


    • I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I absolutely loved Touching Paradise. It started a little slow but when it picked up, it was full steam ahead. Monroe was a little annoying but that was due to her self doubts caused by her no good boyfriend Thomas. It's Monroe's self doubts that lead her to Koenraad. Koenraad has secrets but let's his attraction to Monroe distract him from protecting his biggest secret - he's a shark shifter. Not only is he a shifter but all alpha. [...]


    • 2.5 stars As most of us, I am used to other kind of shifters (felines, wolves, bears), so when I read the blurb for this book I was intrigued how different sharks would be. However, after the first book there is not much I can tell you. This book can't be read as a stand-alone, not only because there is no ending to the romance or the mystery, but also because we don't even get to really know the characters, the shifter worldI liked the h/H, although I lost some respect for the heroine in the la [...]


    • What a pleasant surprise. I was quickly drawn into the story and disappointed when it came to an end. Koenraad, a shark shifter, spends his time patrolling the ocean, searching for a missing family member and (view spoiler)[searching for a cure for his son (missing since he swam away from home and never returned), who was born frail and unable to shift to human form(hide spoiler)]. He's drawn to Monroe and coaxes her to enjoy snorkeling despite her terror at being in open water. Their relationsh [...]


    • SHARK dangerous? Hell no just freaking HOT!!! I was so excited to hear Cleo was doing a SHARK shifter story and couldn't wait for it to come out. It took me only 1 day to read it and fall in love with the characters. I loved every bit of the story from Koenarrd holding and breathing into Monroe while under water. To what I know in my heart was Monroe meeting Koenarrd's son on his beach. But the hardest part is now I have to wait for book 2. This was a fantastic story that any shifter fan will en [...]


    • Sweet and sensual romance with the perfect Alpha man and a smart, kind woman who's looking for some island fun after having just been dumped by Mr. Wrong. I am fascinated by sharks so when I saw a shark shifter romance, I knew I was hooked. This story absolutely did not disappoint as it quickly reeled me in. I loved Koenraad and Monroe's love story and their passionate encounters were boiling hot. Half-way through this book, I immediately bought the others in the series because I knew I wanted t [...]


    • I am loving that authors are branching out in to different kinds of shifters. And, OMG sharks! Cleo did a great job of setting this story & world up in the first installment of this serial. I was expecting Koenraad to be the typical alpha douchebag shifter but his care and attention toward Monroe is pretty darn awesome. There's a great set up for the story arc involving the "sick" in the waters and I'm hoping to hear a bit more about the "shark warriors" local mythos. So happy that it didn't [...]


    • I enjoyed the writing and the concept of this book a lot. It's my first shark shifter read and definitely delivered. Now I want to get my hands on more shark shifter books. I felt the story could have moved a little faster (especially at the beginning) and the "ending" (notice the quotation marks) was not expected :(I did however like the sex scenes and the world the author created for us. If you don't mind waiting for book 2 then I would suggest this book to those who love alpha male shifter bo [...]


    • Wow what a great story. How cool a Shark Shifter series. I was not sure but took a chance. Kinda feel like Monroe taking a change with a stranger. Somehow she feels a deep connection or bond to the sexy Koenraad unbeknownst is a shark shifter. He has many dark secrets of his own. He too feels this strange bond. There is a deeper longing to have Monroe as his chosen mate. He needs her, craves her. There are too many reasons not to take her, yet he breaks all the rules. There passion, romance and [...]
