Publisher's Summary

Mysterious abductions. A shadowy government conspiracy. A deadly new threat. And love in a time of war....
Olivia, a former Marine turned investigative journalist, had thought her time serving in a combat zone had exposed her to the worst horrors imaginable. But when her younger sister Emily goes missing, she learns very quickly how wrong she was. Emily's trail leads Olivia to the Pacific Northwest, to a town called Black Salmon Falls, where she finds herself mixed up with a human trafficking ring, a dark military unit, and a world she never even knew existed.
Luca is the heir to the throne of the Langayan Clan, closest ally of the region's dominant clan, the Q'lapa, and the best friend of the Q'lapa Chief, Asher. When bears in the area begin to vanish without a trace, Asher dispatches Luca to look into it. What Luca finds is not what he expected and he uncovers a threat - the biggest threat the werebear clans in the Pacific Northwest have ever faced.
As Luca and Olivia race against time to find her sister, the forces arrayed against them mobilize for war, seeking to execute a plan that will take the Clans off the board - forever. As they discover and explore the spark that exists between them, they find themselves in the fight of their lives - a fight that may have fatal consequences for the combatants.
Saved by a Bear features a curvy redhead who is full of fire, sass, and sarcasm and a big, strapping werebear who is lethal, but has a heart of gold.
This book is a standalone, no cheating, no cliffhangers, and a guaranteed happy ending!

Memorable, Endearing, and Heartfelt

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend this audio book to a friend because I loved the storyline. The romance was not front and center and that made the plot stronger and the romance even sweeter. Nothing was forced but allowed to develop naturally. It was beautiful, and I loved the intriguing characters that pulled you farther and farther into the story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Saved by a Bear?

I loved the epilogue where Olivia and Luca let their hearts do all the talking while they opened themselves to each other completely not knowing the future and yet confident in how much the other meant to them. They no longer needed to fear but to feel loved and cherished and wanted forever.

What about David Quimby’s performance did you like?

David Quimby made me love these characters and showed me how amazing they are. He really highlighted their strengths and admire how they worked on their weaknesses. This was a fun and compelling media for this book, and I enjoyed it very much.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Luca opened his heart to Olivia even after she shot him with a traq, tied him up, and then put a silver collar on him. He saw in her a scared woman who needed to know that she had someone that she could count it no matter what. He put his own pride aside and stepped up for her.

Any additional comments?

This is a wonderful story with fabulous characters, and I can't wait to see what happens next!

Sexy bear shifter? Yes please

While there's plenty of romance going on in this story, it's not just romance. The story deals with good and evil, prejudice and bias, and forgiveness and understanding.

The main characters Olivia and Luca are really good together and the story line is interesting and clever. I enjoyed listening to it and I'd listen to it again.

I haven't read book one yet but I didn't feel like I was missing much so this can be read as a standalone or as part of the series.

The narration was great, David has a lovely voice and he did a great job with the character voices and the delivery overall.

I received this book free from the narrator/publisher/author in exchange for an honest review.

Fast-paced and action-packed!

This story was interesting. About 2/5ths of the book is dedicated to the backstory and build up to the protagonists meeting. From the point of meeting to the end, the plot seems to gain momentum. It wasn't slow to begin with but the meeting between Olivia and Luca really propels the story forward. That said, this is the second book in the series and you get the sense that there is more to the relationship between some of the characters who were probably mentioned in the first book. I dont think the audience needs to listen or read the first book first, but I think that the characters seem to be involved with each other lives and appear again and again.

Olivia and Luca actually have the same goals but are approaching it from opposite ends. Olivia has infiltrated the enemy's ranks to reach her goal and Luca is still on the outside trying to find a way in. The catch is that he is a bear shifter and the enemy wants to capture and irradicate the shifters. Olivia and Luca's strength and upperhand only emerges when they trust each other and join forces, both in bed and out. There is a happy ending though it is more hopeful than anything else.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
