This is a revisit for me. I read the series back in 2015, but when it was offered on audio, I decided that I wanted to revisit the series. I’m a fan of this series. I love how this series tackles hard topics, but adds humor too.

In this story, Lauren is a human living in a mostly shifter community. Her best friend is married to the mayor, but he thinks he’s above the law. He beats her, but Lauren won’t allow it. She goes after the mayor. She’s not scared of his power. That’s when deputy and werebear enforcer Van Abrams shows up to break up the dispute.

Van hates humans. He makes no bones about it. He has no use for them. That is until he meets Lauren. He learns that she is his true mate. He must learn to overcome is prejudice. She catches him saying some horrible things about humans, but then he explains that isn’t how he feels about her, just her people. You can imagine how that goes.

Someone is trying to kill Lauren. The mayor is trying to cover up his abuse as his wife finally leaves him. Oh, and there are issues with the wolf pack and their hatred of the hyenas.

This story tackles several hard issues like men in power and how they think they are above the law. There is also the species version of racism against humans and hyenas. The bears have their reasons for that hatred, but they must learn that just because there are bad humans and hyenas, doesn’t mean that they’re all bad. The story of why Van hates humans is a real heartbreaker. It made me tear up and hate those humans too.

Again, I really enjoyed Kendall Taylor’s narration. She handles this cast of mostly bear males really well. I thought she really brought out the emotion in the story, when Lauren goes after the mayor and Van telling his heartbreaking story. I will be on the lookout for more stories narrated by her.

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’ve read a couple of her books and liked them. I’ll have to read this one as well.

  2. I haven’t even heard of this series! But I do love the way it tackles some big issues, clearly. I’m glad the narration is breathing life to an old favorite 🙂 I’m going to have to add this to my list. Great review Melanie!

    BTW – I keep meaning to ask someone… how in the world do y’all do audio clips in your reviews?! Are you selecting the bit you want or downloading a predetermined selection from somewhere?

    • It is such a fun series Berls, I think you would really like it.

      Loupe creates these files and I’m not sure how. I know that most people use Soundscloud, which you can get from their site and embed with your review (that is what I do when audio reviews on RR).

  3. it’s interesting to see that she adds such topics in her books. It’s been a long time since I want to try her novels but I haven’t yet for now

    • I do like that she tackles such topics, but also adds some fun to the books. I really enjoy the characters.

  4. Every time I see werebear, I think of care bear. Then I envision a werebear care bear. Sigh.

    • Hahaha. I had a few Care Bears in my youth. They were very cute. 🙂

  5. oh this book just sounds so amazing here!! I just love a good shifter romance, and I like the emotional tones for this one and some solid dynamics.

    • Shifters are my favorite paranormal species. This is a really fun series. I hope you get a chance to try it some time.

  6. Cute title for this! Glad this was a good read. I definitely need to read more shifter books.

  7. Well, HELLO new author to try!!! I’ve never heard of her before but I love this story!!! I need to know how it ends 🙂 thanks for the awesome review!!!

    • This series is so much fun. I reviewed all the books as ebooks for Rabid Reads and then when they were released on audio, I grabbed them up to revisit on audio. I think you would enjoy them, Kristin.

  8. Funny how Van’s mate turns out to be a human! That’s karma for ya!

    • Yeah. I love this series so much. There’s great karma in it.
