Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth Chapman is saved from an armed robber by a giant Kodiak bear who shifts into a large, well-muscled, and fully naked human male. But when it's revealed that the robber is the brother of a dangerous criminal, Elizabeth finds herself the target of a vendetta.
Ronan, the Bear Shifter, takes her to Shiftertown for safety. Here Elizabeth learns that the mateless Ronan, alone in the world, takes care of Shifters who have also been left on their own. Having grown up in foster care, Elizabeth can only admire how protective Ronan is.
But Ronan will only let Elizabeth leave the confines of Shiftertown if he becomes her 24/7 bodyguard. Elizabeth chafes at her restriction, but agrees. The trouble is, the sassy human Elizabeth is triggering Ronan's long-buried need to find himself a mate.

Love me some Shifters UnBound! Love me some JA!!!

Man o Man this was so good. Ok.. So when I got Tiger's Magic... Book 5, Rowan had a woman, and I was so confused... I was like what? Ok... this is the answer to that! This is like book 2.5, so this falls in between even Iona and the other shifter town in Austin. I loved how the books come out though... because we really don't know about Rowan's household until book 5... then this book, falls way way before that book, so you see Rowan's household before all of the events of book 5. You meet Olaf in book 5 but you get to know him in this book. Sooo cute. And Rowan... OMG! I never really pictured Rowan as a sexy man, until this book. He was always around with Liam and the other shifter, but now...I just want to squeeze and hug him and wrap him up in a big ol bear hug! This was awesome.

Great Credit/buy if you have any of the other shifter unbound books! U want this in your collection!

Narration was just awesome!

BEAUTY & THE BEAST - BUT WHO TAMES WHO?

You may gulp at the price for a 5 hr listen but if you're into the Shifters Unbound Series then this is a must have. I gave it only 3 stars purely because of it's short length.

Elizabeth's got issues and problems but she's one lucky girl when Ronan comes roaring to her rescue.... and stays despite gang leaders and her past catching up with her and they all want her dead. Ronan's a sweetheart and is feeling the 'mating urge' but, with her causing him, and his fellow shifters, all sorts of grief things soon get out of hand - but thankfully the cute and cuddly Kodiak bear can look after her and thankfully himself too.

Sweet romance, not your usual 'Alpha' type, not sexy or hot but a tender, feel-good, teddybear love story about secrets and trust along with a few evil villainous characters thrown in. We also hear of further developments/insights into the world of the Shifters that's been created so well by JA.

Worth a credit? I'm a Shifters fan so of course I'm gonna say Yes.

Plenty of action, romance and humor.

Facing an armed robber who intends to kill her, Elizabeth Chapman is trying to figure a way out of the mess when Ronan a Kodiak bear shifter comes to her rescue.

Unfortunately no good deed goes unpunished, and when the robber's big brother comes after Elizabeth, she is in need of more protection and Ronan decides to become her permanent bodyguard.

I'm a huge fan of Jennifer Ashley's Shifters Unbound series and am delighted when i can find them in as audiobooks. In other words come on audible.co.uk, you only have the first book and two short novels for download, where is the rest of the series? You have them available on audible.com why not here?

This story is the first short novel in the series (book 2.5). If this is your first taste of the series, Shifters are second class citizens forced to live in ghettos because they are feared and/or hated by most humans. They are strong and independent, unwilling to give in to human rules and acting against human authority to keep their own culture and make their lives better.

The first two books in the series are about sexy/hot 'Alpha' males and how they find their mates, this book a little different. There is a sweetness to this love story to go with the action, romance and humor mentioned in the title and you get to learn a lot more about the characters who are usually in the backgound of the main books.

It's a great addition to the shifter series and l love it!

I'm off to download Hard Mated book 3.5 which is about Spike another of the background characters from the main books.
