Publisher Description

Bear Meets Girl...

Julie Simon returns to Saginaw, Michigan, to find her ailing father's missing research on local shapeshifter lore. Unlucky for her, the only person who can help her is the darkly sexy Mark Robertson, the guy who spent an entire summer giving her the cold shoulder-and one white-hot night of pleasure...

Mark is a hair's breadth away from going feral. Soon, his grizzly side will destroy everything that makes him a man. And after years of fighting, Mark is ready to give in to the beast. Then Julie-the gorgeous, curvy book nerd who awakened his most primal desires as a young man-shows up at his door. Now, he's fighting an insatiable longing to claim her as his mate. But Julie isn't the only one after her father's research. Someone-or something-evil is tracking Julie's every move...

Clever and fun, with enough angst

The first I’ve read in this paranormal romance, it combines a second chance romance with some suspense, a mystery and plenty of sexy.

Julie is returning to Michigan on an errand, her father is ill and someone needs to gather his research on the shifters in the area and keep it safe. She’s not wholly buying in to the whole thing, and the only person who can help her find the information is Mark. The one who ignored her for a whole summer, leaving her with lingering doubts, desires and a bit of attitude.

Mark’s life is shifting, his bear threatens to take over and dominate the man he is, entirely. He’s decided that the fight isn’t worth it, and is ready to just give in. Until Julie appears. She’s the only person who he can’t forget, and perhaps he’s held some feelings since that summer too.

While a bit slow to start, the story quickly picks up pace and moves into so much more: Julie and Mark’s connection, his never-ending struggle with his bear, her lack of awareness of his nature and a somewhat stubborn refusal to just ask questions and share what’s on her mind. These two just don’t communicate well, until it’s apparent that Julie (and the information she was sent to collect) are in grave danger, and only Mark can save them.

Clever and fun, with enough angst from both Julie and Mark when conversation is called for. The twists with the bad guys and some serious reflection on past events that may hold the key to the battles Mark is having with his bear add up to an engaging read. While there are still unanswered questions, this story provided plenty of background, current action and hints to the future to stand on its own, while leading readers to the next in the series.

I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
