Publisher's Summary

River: 

When I was 17 I made an unforgivable mistake. 

My entire clan hates me even though I'm their alpha. 

I was willing to live alone in the darkness until I saw him. 

He is mine. Every fiber of my being tells me that. 

The clan will object to their alpha being with both a human and a man. 

I don't care. I will have what's mine. 

Darius: 

Everyone gets one great love. I've had mine. 

She died. 

Now all that's left for me is survival. 

One day at a time. One breath at a time. 

But why is it when I look at him I feel like I could love again? 

I can't betray her memory....

But I also can't betray my heart. 

This MM shifter romance can be heard as a stand-alone.

Enjoyable listen.

This is a great listen. River and Darius's story is sweet and I enjoy listening about their story. I definitely couldn't stop listening to this story. We have some suspense and drama that definitely kept me interested into this story. I also love how River is with Parker. Then Gary Bennett did a great job with this story. Made me really get into the story.

🎧Audiobook Obsession 🎧

I enjoyed listening to River and Darius finding each other and falling in love despite the many obstacles in their way. I don't know how River survived in his clan for so long with how they treated him. He's the alpha, but he has such a kind a gentleness about him. Darius is still grieving for his wife and a recovering alcoholic. Charming and sexy, stronger than he knows.I especially loved when during his grief, River shifted to his bear and tried to scare Darius, who instead of running away in fear, embrace his mate and comfort him. River's clan is irredeemable and reprehensible, except for River, Kiera is the only thing good there. I'm happy River and Darius got their HEA. Gary Bennett is a first time Narrator and he was ok, nice pacing throughout, but it was hard at times to differentiate the character voices.

Another Terrific PNR! Great Narration🎧 Heartfelt!

Kayci Morgan pens another terrific novel in her “Bears of Southoak” series. I enjoy her writing style and the interesting and original storylines she created as well as the characters and world dynamics. She has a great imagination and still manages to keep it all realistic and relatable. There was a time when The Bears of Southoak and Ironshore were one clan, differences in opinions on how to live broke them in to two clans, the Southoak Bears chose to live in modern society with human interaction, while the Ironshore Bears chose to live amongst themselves in the wilderness. River the alpha bear of Ironshore was not well liked by the clan members, they hold an unfortunate incident against him that happened when he was younger. He is also dealing with his own insecurities and resentments, but he wanted to make his adopted parents proud and do things for the betterment of the clan and goes to make a business deal with the Bears of Southoak, who are not a fan of his either. After a successful business deal in Southoak he saves a man from getting hit by a store sign. Darius, lost his wife and then lost himself in alcohol, after hitting rock bottom he finally started to get his act together for the sake of his son. When River saves him from getting hit by that sign there was an instant attraction between them. After some inner turmoil he finally agrees to go out with him. I loved how everything played out between these two, the chemistry between them was smoking. Also loved how River was with Darius’s son. There is never a dull moment in this book, there is plenty of drama, angst, twists, thrilling & suspenseful moments, heartfelt moments and hot romance.

I listened to the Audible edition, Gary Bennett continues to bring these characters to life, giving them their voices and personalty as well as attitude. You can hear how much heart he puts into his work as he projects the emotions of the characters into his performance. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧

Audiobook Obsession Reviewer

River is his clans alpha, everyone hates   him. Darious is a human that's widowed after his wife died in a wreck, leaving him a single father to Parker. River and Darious meet, leaving Darious questioning his sexual preferences. Will Rivers clan accept Darious as he is? Will Darious people accept Darious new love interest? Will they get a HEA?

Second chances and finding where you belong

River and Darius are both sweet men. I thought this story had a gentle feel to it even with the bit of drama caused by River’s clan and even individual clan members. I felt bad that River had to deal with such a homophobic clan.
Darius who is human has a son, who I really liked, that is half bear. Though he isn't a bear shifter, Darius had shifter friends who tried to look out for him. Both men having to deal with their own set of problems and insecurities made them seem more real, especially Darius being a recovering alcoholic. I really liked both men and am happy they found each other. The story has a few emotional parts and I liked how Darius protects what is his.

Gary Bennett did a good job, he spoke clearly and at a nice pace, but I found it hard to know who was talking at times. There are a couple scenes where there are several people talking and I had to stop and go back to re-listen which took away from my enjoyment at those times. Overall though I did like Gary Bennett and would listen to him again.
