Matthew Bruner is a bear shifter destined for greatness. Or so that's what he's always been told. As the next in line to become alpha of his clan, Matthew's days of singlehood are drawing to a close. Long since committed to a prearranged mating, Matthew finds himself feeling trapped and, worse, afraid. In a desperate attempt to prolong his freedom, Matthew flees his family's ancestral home and heads to the nearest city. It's there that he meets Ezra Tier, a tiger shifter with a bad streak the size of a mountain.
Ezra Tier has spent the better part of his life not giving a damn. He goes where he wants, does what he likes, and answers to no one. Leading a life as a globetrotting rogue has its perks, and for Ezra one of those perks has been the ability to pick up and move on whenever things get too complicated and messy. So when he encounters a simple mountain bear shifter with broad shoulders and a shy personality, it's all Ezra can do to maintain his unattached persona.
When a familiar and dangerous presence shows up in search of Matthew to bring him home, Ezra must change his ways in order to keep his newfound love by his side. Failing that, Matthew will be forced to go through with his prearranged mating, and Ezra will lose him forever. Can these two shifters from different worlds come together in time to save their budding relationship? Or will the experience leave their hearts stripped and bare?

Matthew is a bear shifter whose clan has him slated to mate for political/business purposes. He runs away because he can’t mate a female and doesn’t want to be tied down to the family business anyway.
On his travels he meets Ezra, his destined mate, and a tiger. Ezra and all tigers are footloose and fancy free, so at first he fights the mating because he can’t see himself tied down to a mate, especially bears who like to build a den and stay in one place.
In the end there is a grand battle with the evil father and the two mates end up HEA.
This is a very short, free read on Kindle Unlimited. The sex is super hot and the story pretty sweet.
I enjoyed it for what it was, a light, fluffy, fun read.
I hadn’t heard a narration by Gus Klondike before but he was an excellent choice. He did a great job adding in emotion and differentiating the voices. I really enjoyed this narration and thought it was a great way to experience this book.
Enjoyable but nothing special. Good enough that I'll be reading the next one.
A little rushed & silly in some parts, but nothing unexpected from a light short story.
It's short and could be extended with more character development.
Yes, I'd read/listen to another from these authors.
Yes, I've listened to another book narrated by Gus Klondike. He is an enthusiastic reader and does good character voices. I enjoy listening to him.
The book is light with a simple story and little character development. A longer version would be nice to bring the characters more to life.
I'm an unabashed fiction fan: mostly M/M, Romance, Erotica, Suspense, Thrillers, Action, NA/YA genres.
Would not have rushed the ending so much - would have given more details about the pregnancy.
Smooth narration, good characters voices.
Enjoyable mpreg with cross species mates (tiger and bear), but ends with Matt 9 months pregnant on a kind of cliffhanger-seeming ending.
I liked Gus Klondike's narration, especially his character voices.
Definitely grabbing the second to see what happens!
I received a free copy of this audible eBook in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Artemis Wolffe and Mercy May are 2 of my favorite authors. This is the first book I've listed to narrated by Gus Klondike. I was not disappointed! Gus made the book come to life. I will definitely be looking for more books narrated by Gus Klondike! I highly recommend this book!
