Publisher's Summary

Romance novelist Clarice Adler has lost the inspiration to write ever since dumping her cheating boyfriend. How do you dream up a plot of two people falling in love when you've stopped believing in love yourself? But her deadline is looming, and her career hangs in the balance, so she decides to lock herself away on the secluded Scottish Isle of Skye to finish her manuscript. Upon meeting Derek McMillan there, it seems she's found her new muse, and the words start to flow out of her as if by magic. Clarice falls for him hard, despite knowing nothing about the man except that he's unavailable.

Derek McMillan has been managing his farm and renting out a few holiday cottages on his own for years now. He deals with the occasional tourist for some extra money but mostly keeps to himself. When he first lays eyes on the curvy beauty, Clarice, he immediately regrets accepting her booking. Lightning strikes, and as much as he tries to deny it, his inner bear knows that she's his mate. But he's a shifter, and she's a human, and the two can't ever mix, can they?

In this steamy paranormal romance novella, follow along as an impossible love blossoms between two people who couldn't be more different. One might say fate intended for them to meet, if you believe in that sort of thing, but they're both set on fighting their attraction with everything they've got. They're going to need another push to admit to themselves as well as each other what's going on....

    Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!

    Story
    "Bear Hug Anyone?"

    .......sorry couldn't resist.

    Overall, this was a decent story and I enjoyed listening it; however, it does start off slowly.

    While this is a short story, it's a complete story about Derek and Clarice but ends on a cliffhanger which is setting up for the next book in the series. I think this series would great if all three stories could be combined into audiobook

    I thought Patrick did a great job narrating the story and loved his voice. Personally, if it is a romance story, I much rather hear a guy's sexy voice than a girls voice! ;-)

    "Quick Listen"

    Hmmm. I'm having a hard time with this review. Normally, I know exactly what I liked and didn't like for the books I read and listen too. But I'm kind of stuck here.

    - Narration. I wasn't expecting a man to narrate the whole book. This is probably common, but I've never listened to an audio where this is the case. I'm much more use to a female reading both POVs. Don't get me wrong, the narrator does a very good job, but I didn't love it.

    -Pacing. This book was a quick and short listen. It was a little over two hours, so the story moved fast. I liked the pacing, and even though I would have loved to spend more time on the relationship building.

    - Plot. I don't think the plot was very exciting. And I don't think the book was overly exciting and I really kind of felt indifferent to it the whole time.

    Story
    "Clarice meets her Bear"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would . I read the book prior to ever listening to the audible for this and loved it. If you love shifter books with a bit of spice this is a great story.


    What other book might you compare Scottish Werebear, Book 1: An Unexpected Affair to and why?

    I really can't say I can compare. I have read shifter stories but not many with bears yet.


    What does Patrick Blackthorne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This narrator was fantastic. He spoke clearly and brought this story to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found myself laughing a lot in this book. I mean come on how many people out here wake to see two bears in the bedroom?


    Any additional comments?

    This is a wonderful story and I do recommend it if you love paranormal with spice.

    "Unusual and interesting"

    I enjoyed the book. It was a bit slow going to sstart but well developed. Characters were interesting and plot grew slowly. Just when you might expect to get more of the love story, though, it abruptly ends with one of the main characters taking off on some mysterious journey to help his brother, leaving his bride at home. Perhaps it was the fact I was listening, rather than reading myself, but I did not feel very close to the characters. The ending felt abrupt.

    Story
    "A Scottish bear shifter who bakes!"

    Scotland, introvert, shifters, romance, novella

    It's a dirty trick to get the first one free and find yourself compelled to scout out more! Great characters and the plot moves along quickly. Basically, two introverts find immediate attraction and have to work it out. But she's human, and he's a bear shifter who can't believe he's been mated to a human. There is situational humor throughout, and some erotica near the end. I really enjoyed it!
    Patrick Blackthorne did a fantastic job as narrator! Glad to have gotten it as Whispersync on the cheap, though.

    "A Good Story"

    This was given to me in exchange for an unbiased review via audiobook boom. This was a good story. I liked the way the bears kept to themselves. When the author went to the island in order to finish her book she was inspired by the bear to change the whole story and it turned out better. The borthers were the last of their family and did not have much knowledge about their heritage. He was not sure why his bear had chosen a human as his mate but it did. I liked the way he protected her and the final ceremony was very sweet.

    Story
    "Enjoyable but Predictable"

    Scottish Werebear was an easy listen. I found it refreshing having a male narrator for what I would call a romance. But, it really works well. Patrick Blackthorne was easy to listen to.

    Maybe I've read too many shifter romance books, but I found this one a bit too predictable. There seem to be a rash of werebear books available now. I was hoping for something more original.

    NOTE: In addition to book 1, I've also listened to books 2 and 3. Of the three books, the first is my favorite. It's an excellent stand alone book.

    Story
    "Didn't expect a bear."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, especially anyone who likes shifters and paranormal.I thought this book was really interesting to listen too.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the ending the best.


    What about Patrick Blackthorne’s performance did you like?

    I thought Patrick Blackthorne did a great job, his voice was perfect, just needed a little Scottish accent and would have been even better. But I did love listening to his voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes I did listen to this book in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I really loved reading about Clarice and Derek, I loved how they met and her sweet innocents. Clarice needed to get away from the city and went away for a two-week seclusion so she can get some writing done. Derek is the farmer who takes care of the cabin that she stayed. He just knew there was something about her that just clicked. She was the one he has been waiting for. But wait bears only mate with bears, so how could he know that Clarice is the right one. I really loved the way the story flowed and I loved listening to this story. I wasn’t sure if I would like listening to an audible book like this but I had no problems getting into the story. This was a fun book to read. I did receive a copy of this audio book for an honest opinion and I well I have to say that I loved it.

    Story
    "Left me wanting more"

    I knew this would be a short listen, yet it left me wanting more. Yes, I know the series continues with two other books. However, I'm not sure how much it would focus on these two characters whom I truly enjoyed getting to know. Too mad it wasn't longer, thus the reason for the rating.

    "A sweet short paranormal romance"

    Overall I enjoyed this story though it isn't the best I've ever heard. It is light and sweet with all the feel good escapism one would hope for. Plus the story ends with a little teaser for what will come next. And I enjoyed it enough to consider buying the next audiobook in the series.
