One bear. One human. One big, fat lie.
You'd think that with a backstory like mine, the idea of taking a mate is unbelievable.
You'd be right.
The only reason I'm agreeing to this entire "mates" thing is so that my mother gets off my back, my shareholders are happy, and I continue moving forward in my career. I'm the face of a multi-billion dollar company. I don't need any scandals in my midst.
The offer is for one year. One year of pretending to be this guy's mate, and then we can have a quiet divorce. He just needs his shareholders off of his back, and me? Well, I'd like to not starve to death.
Only, there's more than meets the eye when it comes to Justin. He might have money and brains and incredibly good looks, but there's a secret that lurks behind those beautiful eyes.
And I intend to find out what it is.
THE POLAR BEAR'S FAKE MATE is the first book in SHIFTERS OF RAWR COUNTY: a new shifter series from Sophie Stern. There is no cheating and a guaranteed HEA for our happy couple. You may also want to check out THE DRAGON'S CHRISTMAS TREASURE for a sneak peek at life in Rawr County!
The PolarBear’s Fake Mate
I liked the story line and the characters but they spoke like teenagers instead of adults.
“I should have done things right the first time.”
Justin liked his life as is, unfortunately pictures in the media were creating an image of him that wasn’t good for business… not only was a lifestyle change being ordered, it was to be a publicly visible one.
Rebecca loved getting her graduate degree in English Lit., unfortunately that didn’t immediately translate into employment. Now she was looking to make ends meet, and if that meant doing something unorthodox while she looked for the job she really wanted, she could handle that.
This done in one story walks a fun and fascinating line with this fake relationship, after all fake girlfriends can’t demand answers to questions real girlfriends can ask, and fake boyfriends shouldn’t feel frustrated when family members nearly spoil their perfectly planned proposal. Things friends can set aside, and move past, but partners have different expectations on become increasingly interesting situations as pretend and reality crash together, even as Justin is trying to figure out why anyone was publishing those pictures and messing with his reputation in the first place.

I love my polar bear storylines this one is well written and kept me entertained throughout the pages. The characters are great and engaging with loads of chemistry.
