Nissa Alexander returns to Bear Paw River ten pounds and one boyfriend lighter, with an attitude screaming leave me the hell alone. The last thing she needs is her older brother, the Alpha, lecturing her about settling down and true mates. Hell, he doesn’t even have his own mate, so he has no right to talk. And then, there’s the hunky bad boy, who’s working a missing person’s case in her neck of the woods. He needs to stop sniffing around before someone gets hurt. Nissa’s heart has been trampled on enough these past few years. She is absolutely not going to fall for this lone wolf. Not gonna happen. But her bear isn’t taking no for an answer.
Zach Werner is on the hunt. But this time, it’s not for a predator or a bad guy to bring to justice. His job is to find a missing woman. Why the Florida wolf pack is paying so much money to find this female, Zach doesn’t know. And he doesn’t care. His job is his life. At least, until he meets Nissa. After a brief tangle in the woods, Zach knows this curvy beauty is his mate.
Can he convince her he’s the wolf for her and stay alive long enough to finish the job?
“Huge emotions like arousal, fear, anger and love help trigger the animal’s release. I was hoping a little foreplay might help you loosen up and shift, but all this is doing is frustrating me. Shit, I might die from blue balls by the time you finally shift.”
“Let me guess. You’re going to call me fat, and try to get me to angry shift?” She turned and cocked an amused grin at him.
“Do you want me to turn you over my knee and wallop your ass, little girl?”
She laughed. “Only if you want me lying down on my back, legs spread accepting all that honey talk you mentioned.”
“You’re killing me.” He groaned and bit his inner cheek.
“Come on; let’s get this over with, so we can celebrate by making out.”
“I don’t make out, little girl. I fuck. Hard.”
I just have to put out there, that I love Bear shifter books. I’ve been reading the Howls Romances and have enjoyed everyone of them. Bearly Shifted is no exception.
I lurved the interaction between Zack, aka Dog Breath and Nissa, his Little Bear. Snappy and teasing with an unmistakable sizzle. A fast paced read, I was disappointed when it was over. The romance flowed through out the book, Zach’s PI job derailed by meeting his mate.
Bearly Shifted is the first installment of The Mates of Bear Paw River. Hints of what I hope will follow in the series were woven in the book. I hope at least, lol!
I recommend Bearly Shifted to any shifter lover, especially if you like to read about bears and wolves. It kept me reading and entertained to the end.
