Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: Denali Den #3
Title: Bound to the Bear
Author: Rebecca Thomas
Date of Publication: April 5th, 2017
Looking for a well written, quick, paranormal romantic suspense to read? This could be just what you’re looking for! It is the third in the Denali Den Series and features the third of the Vane brothers, Stefan, who is a workaholic detective as well as a werebear shifter. He’s been forced by his superiors to take some time off work but, whilst driving back to the teen camp his brothers run, he gets a phone call – and yes, it is one of those calls that will change his life.
In this case, he’s been asked to protect a feisty she-bear, Tess Trevino, who is the only witness to an armed robbery attempt. Even though the attacker, a teen werewolf, was arrested, a subsequent attempt was made on her life. Now they want him to take her away with him to his family’s wilderness therapy camp, keeping her identity a secret by pretending she’s his girlfriend. Doesn’t seem too onerous, does it? Get ready for sparks to fly as their fake relationship proves anything but!
This is an action packed novella with a great plot, brilliant characters and plenty of intrigue as well as humour and romance. It is a great addition to the series but could still be read as a standalone. I admit to having enjoyed reading everything I’ve had from this author and this is no exception. The only complaint I have about this book is that I’d have loved to have spent longer escaping into the paranormal world she’s created, so I really hope this isn’t the last in this series!
I requested and received a copy of this novella. I chose to read it and this is my honest review.
A fake relationship with consequences…
Werebear Stefan Vane has a job to do—protect his witness. He devises a plan to keep the stubborn she-bear at his family’s remote wilderness therapy camp. Her identity must stay secret. They agree to pretend they’re a couple. But her smart mouth and sexy curves are distracting. He’ll do whatever it takes to make sure she’s safe, only he never expects the lines between what’s fake and what’s real to become so blurred.
Tess Trevino is the only witness in a botched robbery attempt. The perpetrator is arrested, but her life is threatened. When witness protection sends an extremely hot detective to protect her, she can’t say no. Her stomach does twirly-twisty things when he’s near and since her bear has been in hibernation so long, she can’t resist him.
The arrogant, devilishly handsome bear says they will stay in a remote cabin…alone. Things could be a whole lot worse than being stuck with a smooth-talking stranger, but when her feelings become real…pretending gets complicated.
