After losing the trial of the century, disgraced lawyer Abigail Holt flees the unforgiving press in Dallas. With only the clothes on her back, she ends up driving to the small town of West Yellowstone. She needs to hide for a while, just long enough to figure out how she's going to move forward with her life. The Curvy Bear Ranch seems like the perfect place to retreat. But when she meets Cody Grant, a tall, sexy cowboy with bedroom eyes and a panty-melting six-pack, she wonders if she's headed for another disaster. She has no idea that the man she secretly craves is hiding a huge, furry secret.
When Cody meets Abby, her curves set his body on fire. His bear can't wait to claim her as his mate, but Cody isn't ready to commit. He's not interested in dating another broken woman. With his last, failed relationship in mind, he agrees to her no-strings-attached proposition. But after one mind-blowing night together, he agrees with his bear. He'll do whatever it takes to convince his fated mate that they belong together. And he's very, very convincing with his naughty tongue.
This is the fifth book in the paranormal bear romance series - Curvy Bear Ranch. This is a stand-alone book with no cliffhangers. Love scenes are fully realized and at times include explicit language. Intended for listeners 18+.

This audiobook has great characters & story line. Although it is not as long as many audiobooks it was just right. The Author was able to create a great romance story.
Abby leaves town after a high profile court case she lost. She ends up at Curvy Bear Ranch. There she meets Cody, a gorgeous cowboy. The attraction between them is strong but Abby doesn't want to get involved with anyone.
The narrator does a great job bringing the story to life.
The author is very talented and I'm looking forward to reading/listening to some of her other books.
Although this is from a series, it can stand alone with no cliffhangers at the end.
This audiobook was provided free of charge in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
I loved this story. The characters are witty, flirty, sexy and just plain fun to read. I want my own cowbear valentine. LOL
The narrator did a good job of bringing the characters to life

Hello I am addicted to Audible!!! The addiction is real and I need help...more credits that is.....
This was my first book in the series and I loved it. Abigail was so strong yet broken but no worries she is soon healed. She takes her life back without any apologies and I found myself rooting for her happiness,
When Cody and Abigail decide to try out the hot tub and of course when she watches him shift and freaks out.
This book was given to me for free for my honest opinion and I gave the book 5 stars because it truly was a good book with a good narrator. I would listen to it again and again. It has enough story line and sex to make it interesting and to keep you wanting more. LOVED IT!!
Read/Listen, Review and Recommend!
This was a first book for me and I have to say I am now a fan.
I love a book with a curvy goddess, who is admired for her body and not shunned because of it.
Abigail is the leading prosecutor who lost a case that was not only devastating to her but to a lot of people. She is now thrust-ed in to the lime light and she can’t handle the pressure so she ends up in a B&B far away from the prying reporters.
Cody is one of the brothers who own the B&B. He is content with his life and his living. He isn't looking for more but life has a way of surprising you, also Cody is a were bear.
When these two meet you can see the attraction right always. They quickly become friends and lovers Cody helps Abby through her guilt about case and in the process discovers she likes to paint and encourages her to do what she loves.
Just because she has pressure from family if being a Lawyer isn't what she truly loves then she should do what make her happy.
I love how he was supportive of her, and she him even if she scared the holy heck out of him.

Love books. Can get lost in them and spend hours there.
This story was good but it kinda drags at some points. I did enjoy the storyline and it was more good than bad.
If you have not read the entire series you can still read this book. Be warned it will make you want to go back and read the others.
The Cowbears Curvy Valentine by Liv Brywood
Abigail is the fifth bride of the Curvy Bear Ranch series. Her story begins with her losing the trial of the century and a murderer is found not guilty. She runs from the press and her loss of her job with nothing but the clothes on her back. She is devastated and feels guilty that she did not get the conviction. Her guilt takes her to the ranch but it is love that makes her stay.
While there she discovers that she is a truly gifted artist and ws only following a path laid out for her by her father. She was not ever meant to be a lawyer. But Cody one of the last two Grant brothers to find their mate is her answer. His bear knows that she is their mate but Cody fights it because he had a disasterous affair before with a guest and has vowed to not do that again. But a fated mate cannot be easily dismissed or run from.
Abigail’s response to finding out that Cody is a bear shifter is funny and results in some soul searching but love rules in the end. A good, funny story.

Audiobook Addict. It's all about the Listen. Mostly Romance, but I do branch out a bit. Reviews are my honest opinions-popular or not.
The Cowbear's Curvy Valentine is book 5 in a series of short and sweet, bear shifter, steamy romances. I have not listened to the first 4, but that was not an issue as each seems to be a standalone with no need to know all the details of what has gone on in the past to understand it. There are a few paired up couples on the ranch, and their stories can be found in earlier volumes.
Despite the shortness of the book, the author was able to create a dramatic, fun, sexy and sweet story that made me want to keep listening. The characters seemed real and I cared about Abby, Cody and the rest of the fam and felt the connections they made. I know that isn't easy to do, as evidenced by the many "less-than-awesome" shorts I've listened to in the past. Actually, I had been avoiding the "shorties" as a result, but if this is an example of the new standard, I will have to give them another try. Short, long or medium, I will absolutely will be checking out more audiobooks by Liv Brywood. Her writing flows nicely, the dialogue and emotions are believable, and the heat factor is steamy and sexy, but she doesn't use it to the extent that it's the main focus of the story.
Cici Kay gives a good performance. Her male and female voices are good, and she uses the right inflection and emotion for the material she is reading. Her male voice for Cody was pretty sexy in just the right places, and she handles the switches between character voices very well.
I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an unbiased review. The number of stars I award in the 5-star rating system is based on where I believe this audiobook rates with other audiobooks of the same type, length and general feel-- not where it rates in comparison to all audiobooks of all time.
