Publisher's Summary

One playboy werebear, a human woman, and a surprise pregnancy - what could possibly go wrong?
Mara knew hooking up with a player like Grayson Wells was a mistake. He epitomized everything she hated about the opposite sex - from the testosterone raging through his veins, to his reputation as a rich playboy. However, those qualities also made him the perfect person to distract her after the loss of her grandmother and a disastrous break up with her fiance. Their time together was supposed to be a one-time thing, until fate stepped in and thrust them back together.
After losing his family in a vicious attack by hunters when he was a teenager, grizzly shifter Grayson Wells had learned to live his life to the fullest. He doesn't think beyond his immediate wants and needs. Hooking up with Mara was spontaneous, hotter than fire, and the end of his footloose and fancy free lifestyle. From the moment they touched, he knew Mara was the one for him - the mate he never expected to find. Convincing her to give him a shot is easier said than done, but he's willing to fight for what he wants when it matters. Discovering Mara's pregnant, only makes him even more determined to claim her as his mate.
As the heat between them builds, a new threat arrives and endangers Mara and their unborn child. If Gray doesn't act fast, his new family could be snatched away from him before he ever gets the chance to claim them.

This was an okay story.

I was given a free copy of this story (audiobook) for an honest review. In the end, this was an okay story. While I get it was a short story, I had several issues:

1. The shifter part of the story seemed almost like an afterthought. In ALL the stories I’ve ever read that incorporated shifters, there was always a backstory to how they came about—basic history. I didn’t feel much was told about them in this story. Additionally, (based on past reading experience) when the main character meets a shifter (usually not having shifter friends) they would be curious and ask questions. But Mara never did that. Gray gets her pregnant after realizing he’s a shifter. Does she ask what kind of shifter he is? No, that's too personal. Does she ask if he has a condom? No, most likely it would be because she was tipsy? I don't know.

2. Based on the timeline of the story she found out she was pregnant in a much shorter amount of time than normal and never really seemed to question that fact, as in are females pregnant a shorter amount of time when they have shifter babies? Nothing, of course. It’s like she and Gray have sex, she’s sick for a few days and then bam! She takes a pregnancy test and finds out she’s pregnant.

3. Similar to the questions asked prior, Mara never asks what’s involved in the mating process either. I just didn’t understand her character. If she wants to be with Gray, you’d think she would be asking questions but doesn’t. I've read go-with-the-flow type characters, but she was too much. There was nothing to her.

4. How did Mara think having a sleepover with Gray at her house would have been the best option? Gray has a giant, empty mansion, whereas, Mara’s questionable mother is at hers.

5. The whole cliché of how a couple having sex and one of them describes the other as fitting them perfectly, or some other nonsense like that? Yeah, there has to be a better line or description. I’m tired of reading/hearing that.

6. Similar to the shifter aspect of the story, I also felt Mara’s mother was an afterthought. I mean she shows up, steals some jewelry, has a seizure and then disappears. What exactly was the point of having her in the story? There was no mystery that she randomly showed up to get money or something from Mara after her mother’s death. Was she just a space filler?

7. The fact that Gray is a bear shifter and a bear family appears in his yard? Yeah...no...

8. While the narrator did an alright job, why did she make Gray sound like he was trying to come across as sexy the entire time he’s talking? That was just too cheesy!

Sweet and fun

I love a good shifter meets girl romance and this one is a good one. I've read a lot of them so sometimes they feel a little too similar, but this book had some elements I wasn't expecting and I really appreciated that.

The characters are well developed, the dialogue is realistic and the story is interesting, what more could you want? Oh, wait... there's some sexy fun in there too, can't forget that!

The narration is well done, good character voices and a smooth natural deliver.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher in exchange for an honest review.
