Publisher's Summary

"She was willing to be hired for anything, anything at all..."
Curvy Jane Arnold was a small-town girl who had moved to Las Vegas to start a new life. Only problem was, she was dead broke and desperate for a job. Any job.
Vincent Mezzanote was a powerful billionaire bear shifter with a huge business empire based in the City of Sin. He was a man full of opportunities along with dark secrets.
Now Vincent is recruiting a new personal assistant, and Jane has been invited for an interview. When she arrives, Vincent is stunned.
Not because she is perfect for the job - in fact she is far from it - but because he can tell from her scent that she's the mate for him.
Now Vincent has to decide, does he hire her as his PA or does he hire her as his mate?
Or does he do both?

My First Bear Shifter Story!

This was a well written, short story that was perfect to listen to in one session.

I'm a big fan of PNR, however, I felt this story was light on the "paranormal" side and more of a contemporary romance. Throughout the story there's "bear" politics; however, there is no bear shifting until the final chapter. However, I still enjoyed the story and really liked both Jane and Vincent, and the attractions between them was awesome.

When Jane is interviewing at the tattoo parlor for an assistance position, Vincent immediately recognizes Jane as his mate and he hires her on the spot. Even though Jane is human and he's a bear, their attractions for each other is instant and grows quickly. They finally give into their desires for each; however, Vincent does not tell her he's a bear until after they've spent the night together. She easily accepts what he is and they decide to give their mating/relationship a shot. Throughout the story, there are several super steamy scenes, that will get your heart rate up.

The paranormal aspect mainly comes in when the different bear clans get together to have meetings. During one of these meetings, regarding a family in Vincent's clan who were killed in a house fire, a rival bear clan knows about Vincent's mate being human and makes comments about how humans should not mix with the bear society. After this meeting, Vincent knows Jane is in danger, and the only way to protect her, is to make their mating official and this is when things start to go bad and then to worse.

I've listened to several books narrated by Addison Spear's and she has a very unique voice that is easily recognizable. She is a great narrator for romances and did an awesome job narrating this story.

Fans of contemporary and paranormal romances, would both like this story. There's lots of romance and drama and while a great deal of this story takes place in a tattoo parlor, it is very tasteful and the tattoos focuses on art.

Any additional comments?

Jane is running from a mother who does not want to be old. She is always putting Jane down because she is well endowed. She lands in Las Vegas and after going to the last interview before leaving town as a failure and with the last of her money she interviews at the one company that is owned by her true mate. He knows it immediately but does not tell her because he is running from obligation. He knows that he will be the next Head Alpha but thinks it will keep him from his art. This situation puts Jane in danger and she is kidnapped. You must listen to the whole story to get all of the twists and turns. But in the end Jane and Vincent find their places in the Bear Clan.
