One bear. One human. One big, fat lie.
You’d think that with a backstory like mine, the idea of taking a mate is unbelievable. You’d be right. The only reason I’m agreeing to this entire “mates” thing is so that my mother gets off my back, my shareholders are happy, and I continue moving forward in my career. I’m the face of a multi-billion dollar company. I don’t need any scandals in my midst.
The offer is for one year. One year of pretending to be this guy’s mate, and then we can have a quiet divorce. He just needs his shareholders off of his back, and me? Well, I’d like to not starve to death. Only, there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to Justin. He might have money and brains and incredibly good looks, but there’s a secret that lurks behind those beautiful eyes.
And I intend to find out what it is.
THE POLAR BEAR’S FAKE MATE is the first book in SHIFTERS OF RAWR COUNTY: a new shifter series from Sophie Stern. There is no cheating and a guaranteed HEA for our happy couple. You may also want to check out THE DRAGON’S CHRISTMAS TREASURE for a sneak peek at life in Rawr County!
Review by Twinsie Melinda
I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
Justin has it all looks, company, and knows how to have a good time. However, the shareholders do not like the idea of Justin being single and running the company. His mother comes up with a plan to find him a fake mate to appease everyone. Well except for Justin that is. The search is on for the fake mate he will marry and then after a year they can divorce. Once they have it narrowed down the ladies are whisked off to a remote resort to a face-to-face meeting.
Rebecca’s life is unraveling she cannot find a job and her roommate is leaving. If she doesn’t figure something out, she will be homeless before long. When she sees the ad for a temporary wife, she decides this is the adventure she needs.
When Rebecca arrives at the resort, she meets a guy in the elevator there were sparks. Justin sees Rebecca in the elevator he knows this is the one and sends the rest away. Rebecca holds back knowing Justin can break her heart. Plus, she knows he is hiding something but she cannot quite put her finger on what it is.
I enjoyed this book and cannot wait to read more of the series and learn more about these characters. There was so much going on here and the twist. Great start to a series.
