#Review #Paranormal #Shifters – Alpha Unleashed (Grizzlies Gone Wild #4) by Kathy Lyons

Alpha Unleashed (Grizzlies Gone Wild Book 4)

Some men aren’t meant to be tamed. Especially if they’re Grizzlies Gone Wild.


Alyssa Nelson doesn’t actually believe that Simon Gold is a shape-shifting grizzly bear—until she sees it firsthand. Aaaaand the award for Totally Surprising Changes goes to Simon Gold.But Alyssa doesn’t have time to deal with the fact that her ruggedly hot, long-time secret crush is a shifter . . . not when her brother has turned into one, too.

After ten months in bear form, Simon is struggling. He’s not ready to deal with anyone, let alone the bold and gorgeous Alyssa. Mine, whispers his bear. But all hell has broken loose in the Detroit shifter community, and it’s spreading to humans. Now Simon must face the darkest place of all: where bear and man become one. And the only way he can make it back to his humanity is by finding—and claiming—his mate.


I purchased this book in ebook and paperback formats.

I have loved this series so far and jumped up and down when I saw this new book was out.  I was like WHAT?  How did I miss this?  So off to amazon to make sure I am following Kathy as to not miss another book!!

Our Grizzly Simon has been furry for 10 months when a human snaps …errr..scratch that…shoots him outta his bear form.  Seems she knows him and that he is furry.  We quickly learn Simon and her brother, Vic, are best friends and Vic sent her to get Simon.

Alyssa is freaking out because her brother was right, Simon, her dream guy, is a bear shifter.   She can’t believe it and is also happy to hear this news.  It seems her brother Vic, born human, is also now turning into a bear!!  WHAT!!!  That can’t happen!!

Alyssa and Simon join up to figure out what in the heck is happening.  Simon is dealing with the Grizzly just under his skin dying to get out but also with the fierce and sassy woman next to him.  He has thought Alyssa was amazing before and now that she is NOT takin his alpha crap he is in absolute love with her.

The couple have to deal with an overthrowing of the current alpha, finding out about the Detroit flu,  fighting their feelings and must more drama in the story before they can find their HEA.  I have loved the other books in the series but this one just seemed to be something missing.  I am not sure what but it just seemed to not flow as well as the others???  Maybe it was missing the other characters from the other books???  I don’t know but any way if you want to read an demanding alpha and his not so submissive alpha mate then Alyssa and Simon are a great read for you!!
