That first time I saw her—my mate—I’d been ready to kick some guy’s ass for even looking at her. I made no apologies for my possessive, territorial side. I was a grizzly bear shifter, after all. It was my nature to be over the top.
Bethany hadn’t known what to do at first—being mated to a shifter—one who was grouchy and burly and made no apologies for how rugged he really was. But she wanted me, my sweet little human mate who could have brought a beast like me to my knees with just a look. I’d wanted nothing more than to throw her over my shoulder and take her back to my lair like a caveman.
But I let her take the lead, even if my bear wasn’t happy, even if the alpha in me wanted to have my way with her right then and there. And I would have my way with her. All the ways that counted, in fact.
I’d claim her, mark her, and before it was all said and done, there’d be no doubt in anyone’s mind that Bethany was owned by a grizzly.
Warning: Holy moly, this hero’s crazy for his mate, but who wouldn’t want one OTT alpha bear shifter obsessed with you? This story is sweet and sexy, and oh so very filthy. Of course, you get a happily ever after … and a little somethin’-somethin’ at the end to wrap it up nicely.
Zakari is 30 years old and had been waiting for his mate for a long time. He and his brothers run a construction company and live close enough to each other without being crowded because grizzly shifters need their space.
Bethany works at a bar and takes care of her extremely grumpy grandmother. Bethany's father wasn't close with his mother but when she fell and hurt herself, he hadn't argued with his daughter when she said she would go help her until she was healed.
Shifters and humans coexisted peacefully but she didn't know much about shifters and was naturally uneasy with the prospect of being mated to one so Zakari gave her some time to get used to the idea after they met.
But they're mates and the pull for both of them is a strong one so they can't wait too long before they're together and these two are hot! They steamed up my reading glasses! I liked how possessive Zakari is and how much Bethany can't stop thinking about him. They are definitely good together.
This was a fast paced novella. I felt like I got an entire story because this author really knows how to pack a story into a short read. It was fun, fast and hot!
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
