This is a revisit for me. I read this book back in 2015. It is a series that I really loved. I was really excited to tackle it again. I love all these bears at Grayslake.

So this story starts out with Mia moving into her grandfather’s house in Grayslake. Most of the people that live there are shifters and part of the Grayslake clan. She finds a young cub hiding in her closet. His uncle comes pounding on the door and demanding the cub, but when the cub wets himself because he is so scared. Mia’s protective instincts kick in and she refuses to give the boy over.

Ty, the clan leader (or Itan) and county sheriff comes to see what all the fuss is about. He is instantly attracted to Mia. He can’t allow her to keep Parker, the cub, but he is able to take the boy in, since he’s the Itan. Mia goes with him to stay at the clan house.

There is quite the battle for this child. He is very important to the clans, but not everyone is interested in protecting him. There are some who would rather see him out of their way in a claim for power.

This is a really cute story. It is a quick listen at only seven and half hours. I really enjoy the characters. All of Ty’s brothers are a lot of fun and they get books later in the series. If you like shifter romance, this is something you should check out.

No Ifs, and, or Bears About It Audiobook Narration

This is my first time listening to Kendall Taylor. I thought she did a good job with this narration. I liked the pacing and tone. The male and female voices were done well. She had to voice the gruff uncle, the boy and several uber alpha males. There aren’t a lot of women in the book at this point, but there was a few.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.


  1. I love a shifter book and I like that this one is on the lighter side, you don’t get that too often. I am also glad that the reread held up for you.

  2. Hmmm… I’ve not heard of this one. Glad you enjoyed the re-read. Did you read the print version first time around, or audio both times? I find listening after reading I pick up on stuff I didn’t the first time.

  3. Fun that you were able to give the audios a try for a series re-read. Glad the new to you narrator worked for the story. I’ve read a couple of her books and liked them, but haven’t tried this series yet.

  4. This sounds like a lot of fun, especially with a female lead who is so fierce and protective. Definitely an add to the TBR!

  5. Awe I really like the sound of this and look at that a #1 in a series. 🙂
    Thanks Melanie

  6. Oh this sounds like a cute PNR. I’m a sucker for a good shifter novel. I do like the sound of her voice and pacing although I’m surprised that they had a female narrate it. Seems to work though.

  7. If only I had time to re read books… I heard about the author but I confess that I think I haven’t read a book by her.

  8. I loved this book. I’ve read a couple of books in this series and really liked them.

  9. I read this when it first came out and I really enjoyed it, the only thing I couldn’t stand was how long it took for the romance to finally come to a head and put us all out of our misery lol.
