Is Alaska the Only Place To Find Werebears?

This is a cute and short paranormal romance with some heat. Lexi got under Silas's skin right from the start and she found it difficult to resist her immediate attraction to him. Lexi convinced Silas to start a physical relationship with her in hopes that he would fall for her. Silas agrees to the physical relationship with Lexi until he finds his mate. Well, things don't always go as planned. This is a very promising start to a new series, can't wait for the next book.

Teri is ok as the narrator but her male voices are just not masculine or deep enough for a big, burly werebear.

Definitely worth the price.

A cute, quick, fun romp with a were-bear in Alaska

I had previously read it and enjoyed it as an ebook, and the audiobook is even better! The female narrator made this novella even more vivacious, funny, and sexy than it was as an ebook. My only minor complaint about the narration is that I wish that she had made Silas' voice deeper, but it wasn't too bad.

This is a really fun series, and this first book has everything I am looking for in a light paranormal romance: humor, likeable characters, a hot guy, paranormal stuff, and sexiness. I love the setting in the Alaskan wilderness at an outdoors camp for were-bear teenagers with emotional or behavioral problems. It was a little unlikely and illogical for the were-bears in charge to have hired a human counselor when they never intended her to discover that were-bears exist. Other than that inconsistency, I was quite pleased by the characters and by the story. Lexi is a feisty, likeable young woman who just finished grad school and takes this job in remote Alaska. Silas is the grumpy, good-hearted, and gorgeous camp co-owner and cook. He is also a were-bear. He really wants to find his true mate so that he can have sex every day, and he stubbornly believes that a human woman could never be his true mate. The sex scenes were good and moderately steamy. I liked the interactions between Lexi and Silas and how strong-minded Lexi is. She is no pushover, so she is a really cool heroine.
