So this is billed as the anti-hero romance. I disagree, he is flawed but by no means the opposite of a hero. He will deny being a good guy, but actions do not lie.
First, a bit of annoyance, I read this immediately after the last book that had a line about Gene trying to avoid a human trying to tag his bear. However, this book starts with them not knowing each other. It is a small constancy thing that annoyed me greatly.
Gene is all gruff and grumpy damaged bear. Sigh, yeah he had me at hello! I do love the damaged bears who are all Alpha. He has been working on being a villain, turns out he cannot fight his nature, he is a hero to the core. OMG, love his nickname and how he uses it constantly!! PIMA <3
Vicky is very shy and reserved and not at all a tough chick. She is totally endearing and the perfect match for Gene. HE needs someone to care for and she needs his strength to bring her out of herself. I really think they are one of favorite couples in the whole series.
The smexy stuff is delicious and ever so hawt!! Love it! Have ice cream and a cold shower ready!!
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Chandra Skyye, who does very well on the narrative potions of the book. Where I did not enjoy her was the dialogue for the two leads. She tries to go too low and gruff with Gen’s voice and far to nasal and whiny for Vicky. Often she comes off sounding immature because of the narration. This is really too bad, because Ms Skyye has great pace and energy for the other parts of the read. I am not sure how I feel about having her continue with the series. I think she has a great voice, just not enjoying all her artistic choices.
Please let the rest of the series come to audio ASAP!! I can not wait for Brody, so yummy I think!! It is also getting very intriguing with this super secret evil foe!
*** I hope this review was useful to you and helped your decision to read or not read this book. I love reading and sharing my opinions with other readers. I listen at double speed; all my impressions of the narration are from that setting. Thanks for taking the time to read my review!

This is the book that redeems the villain of the first 2 books. Gene is on a mission of revenge until he meets a nerdy human who loves polar bears and is a pain in his a**. I loved this book, and Gene all through the story. I got the warm and fuzzies and Gene was allowed back into his pack so he could have his friends back and the life he deserved. Vicky is hilarious and the perfect heroine for Gene.
