HE BEAR WHO LOVED ME by Kathy Lyons (September 13, 2016; Forever Yours eBook; $1.99; Grizzlies Gone Wild Book 1)
The first in a wild shifter series from USA TODAY bestselling author Kathy Lyons.
WHEN AN ALPHA MEETS HIS MATCH . . .
Between singlehandedly running her bakery and raising her teenaged nephew, Becca Weitz thought she had a decent grip on “normal.” Then her nephew vanishes, and life as she’s known it changes forever. Local legends are true: bear shifters exist . . . and her nephew is part of their clan. As is Carl Carman, the sexy, larger-than-life man who has sworn to find her nephew-and the other young shifters who’ve gone missing.
As the leader of his clan, Carl is surrounded by enemies. He’s learned the hard way that keeping a firm leash on his inner beast is key to survival, though his feelings for Becca test his legendary control. Then danger stalks too close, and Carl realizes he must unleash the raging, primal force within to protect everything he holds dear. But can Becca trust his grizzly side with her life-and her heart?

I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review.
This is my first book from this author but I gotta tell ya, it won’t be my last. When I saw this book I jumped because I love shifter stories. I also loved that the shifters were bears…..welll grizzlies to be more specific. It seems most are a cat shifters so I was excited to read the book.
This book is about Theo who has been adopted by his aunt Becca. They don’t know until Theo goes missing that he is part shifter. When Theo is kidnaped, his alpha/Maximus/Mr. Max/Carl comes to talk to Becca about what makes him so special. Carl has been watching Theo his entire life for signs to see if he will be a shifter or stay human plus he has also watched Becca longingly from the side.
When Carl shows up and essentially kidnaps *Snickers* Becca to his den. He needs her to be on board with the new life her son will be living plus he is having some not normal feelings for the brave and feisty human woman.
I loved Theo’s kidnapping story because it kept the action of the story flowing. I really enjoyed Carl and Becca trying to understand each other. She wants to understand these 2 parts of the man…1 human and 1 bear. He is so frustrated because she challenges his bear at every turn. However, he loves that challenge and wouldn’t have his mate any other way.
I am really looking forward to Mark’s book. I liked his attitude and the way he hit on Becca just to get a reaction outta Carl…lol But the story I am dying for is Alan’s. I really do hope he finds love and maybe even the woman he has feelings for???
