Another shifter book? Eh, I wasn't too excited. Blurb sounded really good though. All right. I’ll give it a try...and BOOM, fell in love!
The beginning just gripped me. I was on the edge of my seat watching Lilly try get her daughter from that abusive bastard. But the scene ended with a gunshot but there was no information on who shot him, or what happened until later in the story. That was too abrupt. At least let us know the jerk got what he deserved. As you can see, this book fired up my passion. Christopher: sweet, tough, flirty, hot, bear shifter. Oh, yes, I liked Christopher a lot. I really wanted him to be the hero in Lilly’s life. The editing was a bit rough. The sex was good but it wasn’t balanced. It was no sex, then two sex scenes in a row then nothing for a while again. However, the way this plot played out was just so completely romantic. I fell in love with the characters. When her bastard ex came back and well, that whole scene!. Oh, Christopher!
This story was a solid 4 stars, if I could give half, it would totally be 4 ½.
Loving the Bear is a romantic read about finding love when you need it most.
