Publisher's Summary

After losing the trial of the century, disgraced lawyer Abigail Holt flees the unforgiving press in Dallas. With only the clothes on her back, she ends up driving to the small town of West Yellowstone. She needs to hide for a while, just long enough to figure out how she's going to move forward with her life. The Curvy Bear Ranch seems like the perfect place to retreat. But when she meets Cody Grant, a tall, sexy cowboy with bedroom eyes and a panty-melting six-pack, she wonders if she's headed for another disaster. She has no idea that the man she secretly craves is hiding a huge, furry secret.
When Cody meets Abby, her curves set his body on fire. His bear can't wait to claim her as his mate, but Cody isn't ready to commit. He's not interested in dating another broken woman. With his last, failed relationship in mind, he agrees to her no-strings-attached proposition. But after one mind-blowing night together, he agrees with his bear. He'll do whatever it takes to convince his fated mate that they belong together. And he's very, very convincing with his naughty tongue.
This is the fifth book in the paranormal bear romance series - Curvy Bear Ranch. This is a stand-alone book with no cliffhangers. Love scenes are fully realized and at times include explicit language. Intended for listeners 18+.

This was a first book for me and I have to say I am now a fan.
I love a book with a curvy goddess, who is admired for her body and not shunned because of it.
Abigail is the leading prosecutor who lost a case that was not only devastating to her but to a lot of people. She is now thrust-ed in to the lime light and she can’t handle the pressure so she ends up in a B&B far away from the prying reporters.

Cody is one of the brothers who own the B&B. He is content with his life and his living. He isn't looking for more but life has a way of surprising you, also Cody is a were bear.

When these two meet you can see the attraction right always. They quickly become friends and lovers Cody helps Abby through her guilt about case and in the process discovers she likes to paint and encourages her to do what she loves.

Just because she has pressure from family if being a Lawyer isn't what she truly loves then she should do what make her happy.
I love how he was supportive of her, and she him even if she scared the holy heck out of him.

Short and Sweet and Oh So Good

The Cowbear's Curvy Valentine is book 5 in a series of short and sweet, bear shifter, steamy romances. I have not listened to the first 4, but that was not an issue as each seems to be a standalone with no need to know all the details of what has gone on in the past to understand it. There are a few paired up couples on the ranch, and their stories can be found in earlier volumes.

Despite the shortness of the book, the author was able to create a dramatic, fun, sexy and sweet story that made me want to keep listening. The characters seemed real and I cared about Abby, Cody and the rest of the fam and felt the connections they made. I know that isn't easy to do, as evidenced by the many "less-than-awesome" shorts I've listened to in the past. Actually, I had been avoiding the "shorties" as a result, but if this is an example of the new standard, I will have to give them another try. Short, long or medium, I will absolutely will be checking out more audiobooks by Liv Brywood. Her writing flows nicely, the dialogue and emotions are believable, and the heat factor is steamy and sexy, but she doesn't use it to the extent that it's the main focus of the story.

Cici Kay gives a good performance. Her male and female voices are good, and she uses the right inflection and emotion for the material she is reading. Her male voice for Cody was pretty sexy in just the right places, and she handles the switches between character voices very well.

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an unbiased review. The number of stars I award in the 5-star rating system is based on where I believe this audiobook rates with other audiobooks of the same type, length and general feel-- not where it rates in comparison to all audiobooks of all time.
