Publisher's Summary

Worlds apart...

On Fate Mountain, Levi Blackthorn is alpha of his bear clan and leader of the Rescue Bears, the search-and-rescue crew. He and his fellow ex-Navy SEALs are closer than brothers. In a world where shifters often battle prejudice and even violence from humans, they face whatever comes together.   

Juliet Hernandez is a soft-hearted, strong-willed graphic designer with a close circle of friends. She doesn’t like risk, but she’s always there when someone needs her.

Brought together....

One of Levi’s crew has started a shifter-human dating website. Despite his misgivings, Levi signs up - after all, male shifters outnumber females, and both man and bear are ready to find a mate and settle down.

When he meets his curvy human match, his bear roars in approval - and Levi wants to claim her immediately. But it’s not that easy. Juliet’s last relationship was hell, and though the handsome alpha’s touch makes her melt, his possessiveness makes her wary.

To give fate a hand...

Can Juliet let go of her past and trust the wild heart of her shifter mate, enabling them to forge a bond deeper than any challenge the world might bring? Or will their differences prove too great to overcome?

A BEARY GOOD STORY.

This story was fun, it was exciting, it was heartwarming and many other things. Watching Juliette blossom and grow from under her ex's thumb was rewarding. Seeing Levi realise his life of loneliness needn't be his future, and his working relationship with his mates strengthen certainly helped the story along. I can see we can look forward to further budding relationships.
The narrator Calvin Murray must be a shifter himself l think, to get those deep growly bear voices down pat.
And Ashley Taylors narrations were perfect for all those girls . looking forward to more in this series.

A Great & Original Shifter Romance!

4.5 Wonderfully Unique Stars🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I love & enjoy shifter stories and Scarlett Grove does not disappoint. She impressively creates this imaginative world where shifters live amongst humans that is believable and realistic. The story is well written with interesting storylines that grab your attention right from the start. The characters are likable and well developed. The chemistry between the leads, Juliet and Levy, was smoking. I love Fate Mountain and the bear clan, also loved the dynamics of the clan and their bear names, starting with the alpha, Chief Bear, then you have Wild Big, Brew, Ski and Geek Bear. Speaking of Geek Bear, he is a computer whiz who creates a human-shifter dating site and how Juliet and Levy meet. I highly recommend this entertaining story, it has drama, action, humor, romance and some hot shifters. Scarlett Grove, thank you for this great story I am looking forward to rest of the clan’s stories.

I listened to the Audible edition, Ashley Taylor and Calvin Murray did a terrific job narrating and performing the voices, bringing the characters to life from the pages to your ears. Thanks for the entertaining listen.

Great Story!

This was my first Scarlett Grove's book. This is the first book in the Rescue Bear Series. I like the characters, the bear clan, and the storyline. The story is sweet, fun, sexy, and filled with action. Levi and Juliet share an instant attraction/love and a great chemistry. The narration is good, and easy to understand. Calvin Murray's voice didn't really fits the character, but I love Ashley Taylor's voice!

Chief Bear by Scarlett Grove

This shape shifter romance is pretty good. The story is simple but definitely heartfelt and at some chapters.. so hot too. I love that this story though simple is unique than other shape shifter romances out there. Certainly worth the time to listen to.

The narration by Ashley Taylor and Calvin Murray is also good.. but I honestly prefer the Ashley Taylor part of narration.. I'm not sure but maybe because female narration is more soothing in the ear for me but I don't have anything against Calvin's parts, his is also good.

Wow...Just wow...

Having read the book before hearing the performance did prepare me for the laughter, the shaking of the head at the moments where I wanted to shake both characters and tell them to think things through calmly. This book is definitely one of my favorites by Scarlett Grove. When a book makes you laugh and then want to hug the characters while telling them its okay, you know you have a great story. I just know that I'll be listening and rereading the book later on. Give it a try if you're looking for a book that is isn't too heavy that you will snarl and bite at people to leave you alone while you focus on it. This one is a good fun light read that will prevent injuries to friend and family members.

this is when fate intervened and they were a 100% match
They take and text back and forth till julet goes to fate mountin with some other wemon that are going for a bachlert party at the same place that levi owns.

Delightful!!!

This was the most delightful story to listen to! What a pleasant surprise! In a ration on this both male and female narrators did an excellent job! I would highly recommend a story to anyone over the age of 18. The romance was done very tastefully and the adventure kept you waiting to see what would happen next. A
happy ending that will truly make you smile.

Good Series Beginning

A new series (that has turned into a lot of series) begins with Chief Bear and a guaranteed mating ap one of his rescue crew has invented. Finding mates is not easy for bear shifters. Could this ap really work? The rescue crew sure wants to find out.

Their volunteer job is finding lost or injured hikers on Fate Mountain. Levi, Chief Bear, owner of Fate Mountain Resort also heads the rescue team of ex-SEAL bear shifters now settled in the area.

He's got a group you can tick of the list, hot guys, ex-SEALS, continuing heroes and hot, guys not afraid when they see what they want to show her why she should want them too.

Accidently, reluctantly completing the ap and finding her needing help on the mountain—Juliet becomes what he wants. Now he just has to prove it to her.

She is quiet, has not had successful relationships and now her professional life is making her miserable. When the app is suggested she decides why not give the site a try.

Ms. Grove does a great job of introducing all the players and the guys and maybe some of the gals for future books. A good beginning of more to come.

Overall the narration was good and the story enjoyable. It has to be hard to have big bear shifter voice for a number of characters.

This will be a good bedtime story or anytime at all.

A bears life

The struggles of bear shifters looking for mates. When they find a mate that is human things get sticky. They must convince their mates that they should be together. Convincing a soul mate isn't easy. I received a complimentary audio and this review is voluntary.

Great narrators, enjoyable story

I enjoyed the combination of Ashley Taylor and Calvin Murray as the narrators for this book. His grumbly bears just made it all worth while. Both narrators fit the story well and I didn't have much trouble figuring out who was who from the voices.

This is a lovely light enjoyable Iisten, a good cast of characters and a good story with a couple of twists. I loved the setting and now just want to visit a mountain lodge! Preferably with rescue bears obviously. I liked the fact that it is one of the bears that set up the website and I'm hoping that that means we have more of these books to come.

Chief Bear

A cute, lovely and quick read. This book is definitely a instalove book, even with a few jumps on the way to figuring out their true feelings for each other. A perfect revenge plot in the end of the book as well. If you are looking for a short read but one that still has the emotions to pull you in,then this book is it for you.
The narration was done beautifully as well. New narrators for me but will definitely be looking into more.

Sweet shifter!

I loved it! This was a quick but beautiful romance. The alpha was like every other alpha (hawt!!) but what a soft gooey core! The book had some drama that didn't affect the two lovebirds too much but kept a great story going and showed another side to our yummy alpha. Ashley Taylor did a great job with the heroine's thoughts and bringing her voice to life. Scarlett Grove is great at providing a fantastic paranormal romance with steam, laughter and yummy shifters!

Awesome book!

I definitely recommend this book. The author does a wonderful job and has a great imagination with creating characters in this romance. The narrator’s do a great job with the characters. I can’t wait for more of this series. I loved this book. I won the code on Facebook and offered a honest review in my opinion.
