Up-and-coming supermodel Hailey Crewe can’t wait to escape the limelight and return to the anonymous lifestyle she once led. 

Escaping literally? That was never part of her plan. 

But when an unwanted suitor - and her scheming mother/manager - go a step too far with a surprise Hawaii wedding, Hailey becomes a bride on the run. Before she knows it, she’s not only being hunted by a greedy oil tycoon, but by his creepy security force, too. It's a good thing she bumps into her very own Lancelot at exactly the right time.  

Bear shifter Timber Hoving is just another Special Forces vet slowly adjusting to island time. That is until an irresistible stranger rushes into his meticulously organized world. Before Tim knows it, his human side is wrestling with temptation, and his bear is head over heels in love. 

But Hailey’s first encounter with shifters is a terrifying one, and Tim can’t reveal the truth about himself without losing her forever. Worse, sinister shifter forces are closing in, following a ruthless agenda of their own. They’ll stop at nothing to capture Tim’s destined mate - dead or alive.

Fun Bear Shifter Romance with some Action!

Entertaining and interesting! Love bear shifters because they are sweeties. I wish there was actually more of the shifter tendencies, and more time spent in their shifter form. Tim and Hailey are really sweet together! Their romance is kind of a slow burn, but they have a connection right from the beginning. Tim is great, and Hailey was lucky he was there for her. I liked Hailey, but the girl can't read people very well. She doesn't know when to cut people out of her life and say NO!, but she does get better. I don't like how the situation with Hailey's mom ended. Hailey is trying to hideout because her mom and this guy Hailey has been dating, but doesn't really like, is trying to force Hailey into marriage. Tim rescues her and helps her hideout. I'd read the first book in the series before this one because there are previous characters in this book, and there is a storyline that will probably go throughout the series. I was actually quite disappointed in the group this time! Tim was pretty much on his own for this adventure. I always love the action Lowe includes in her books, and I love the Hawaiian setting. The magical elements are great too, but in this book, I was a bit confused about what Hailey's pearl does. I listened to the audio version while I was driving, so maybe I missed a better explanation for it. It just seemed too vague. Speaking of the audio, I've listened to this narrator before, and she does a good job, but I think she's a little too exuberant at times. Maybe I'm just ready for a different narrator, but the listening experience is still good. I don't quite have the connection with the characters and story from this series as I have with past Anna Lowe books; I have high expectations for Lowe's books, so it's hard to live up to at times, but I'm still really enjoying this series. Looking forward to seeing what happens with the other shifters!

Gotta love a rebel

The second book of this series features Timber who is Connor's brother and a bear shifter. If you read book one, and if you didn't, you should, then you know that Connor and his brothers are working security on the Koa Point estate and living on the nearby plantation of Koakea. They are all working secondary jobs in the community to allow them to keep their ears open for trouble. Tim has caught a coptor ride to Oahu with Connor to pick up his contractor's license and is taking a break at the mall food court when a beautiful woman catches his eye. She is obviously on the run and her white dress is making it a bit hard to remain inconspicuous. When he smells a shifter he decides she is going to need some help and his bear is going crazy for the woman, which is something he never does.

Hailey cannot believe that her mother has set her up for a public proposal and the wedding to directly follow her joyous acception. Not happening. She doesn't really even like the guy and she definitely does not want to marry the conceited jerk. With the two of them ganging up on her she does the only thing she can think of, she runs. Ending up cornered in the changing room of a sport's store she can't believe it when she is rescued by a hunk of a man that she only glimpsed as she shoved her way down an escalator. For some reason she feels safe with him and trusts that he will get her away from Oahu. Maui sounds like far enough away to hide for awhile. She will be able to get it straightened out in a few days, right?

Found what happens as a beautiful model goes native with an ex -special forces soldier. Tim knows Hailey is his mate, but he is pretty sure she is not going to be ok with the whole shifter thing. He decides to take what he can get and trust that destiny won't let him down. What could go wrong? Lol.

This series is great and I can't wait for the next story. Dell is such a great character and the one that is the most cynical about love. I was given an audio copy of this book by the author. My review is voluntary.

I love me a bear!

I liked this book. It had story and romance! I like that the author didn’t rush the romance and plot. The amount of time it took to learn the characters and understand them and the romance wasn’t rushed and I enjoyed reading about them. Most books leave things out and have you wondering or disappointed. Love the author and will read book 3!

Tim and Hailey

As usual Ms. Lowe's storytelling is wonderful and Ms. Osborne's narration brought it to life. Tim's angst over telling Hailey about being a shifter was palpable and my heart ached for him. Hailey's disillusionment with her mom broke my heart. I had such a wonderful relationship with my mom that hurts me to see/read about difficult mother/daughter relationships. I'm so glad that Hailey has Tim and her new family at the Koakea Plantation and Koa Point.

I loved Del and little Joey's relationship. The big bad lion shifter turns into cuddly putty tat (borrowed from Tweety bird). I love how he always knew just the right way to encourage and distract the boy. Cynthia's reactions are hilarious. I have a son and can totally relate to her reactions to his adventurous spirit. Little boys are tough on mama's hearts. *lol*

I'm looking forward to listening to Dell's story next.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book.

Wonderful!

I loved it! Hailey is on the run. Timber is a bear shifter trying to adjust. He tries to help her and things escalate and so does their attraction. Definite recommendation!

Whoa, Momma!

Who doesn't love a good villian, especially ones own mother. Every time that woman opened her mouth, I cringed. What a piece of work 'wanna be' fiance', Jonathon. Thank goodness Bailey's horror story turns to a love story thanks to teddy bear Tim.

A story filled with romance, action and yummy shifters. The bad guys are so much fun to listen to, but Hailey and Tim's story playing out is even more fun.

Once again on the beautiful backdrop of Hawaii, Anna has provided a wonderful audiobook to immerse yourself into and fall in love.💗,

Hailey and Tim - Will She Stay?

This book about Timber and Hailey, we met Timber aka Tim in the previous book when he and his brothers arrived on this island paradise to work security for their friends. When Tim meets Hailey she is running, she got up that morning thinking she was going to be a Bridesmaid at the wedding of her boyfriend's sister. She had been planning on breaking off her relationship with Jonathan but didn't want to spoil his sister's wedding for him. So she enters the wedding space to find she's been ambushed, for want of a better word, Jonathan goes down on one knee and proposes so THEIR WEDDING can take place now!

This plan has been concocted by Jonathan and her mother (a really greedy, selfish piece of work in my opinion, she tries to tell them both NO but they won't take no for an answer the only option left to her is to RUN! Run she does straight into Tim who helps her ESCAPE and offers her a place of safety. Tim has already recognised her as his fated mate but how to convince her.

Hailey is invited to stay with Tim and help him fix up a property belonging to Boon, another bear shifter, did I mention Tim is a bear shifter? Whilst they spend a week together working on the property and getting to know each other Hailey is falling for Tim but Tim is holding back, could Hailey love a shifter?

When Hailey is attacked by a wolf shifter working for Jonathan Tim and his brother Connor save her but she is so frightened by the experience that Tim feels he can't tell her what he is. So despite a deep love on his part he decides to keep his secret and loose Hailey. But once again Destiny steps in and forces both their hands, the truth comes out in the most dramatic way, Anna Lowe never does things by halves, I was on the edge of my seat wondering how Tim and Hailey were going to survive this part of the story. I loved this book I loved getting to know Hailey and watching her character grow and I adored Tim, I can't look at a door frame now without thinking of him - you will know why when you listen to this book. I can't really say anything further without giving out too many spoilers, if you have read the blurb you know what to expect but whatever your expectations - this book will exceed them. I loved it

Aloha Shifters is by far my most favourite series to date, this book is the second book in Pearls of Desire, a follow on from Aloha Shifters but I personally think of it as one series. The writing style of Anna Lowe is so very good and easy to follow along, her descriptions of the places and the people make you feel like you've met them and the depth she gives to all her characters is just incredible her words paint a picture and that picture in painted beautifully by Kelsey Osborne who does the most amazing job of narrating this book. I can't praise her or Anna Lowe highly enough. Bring on the next book I say!

This book was given me as a gift and I am voluntarily writing my review.

Very descriptive narration, felt like I was on the

Interesting to hear a story after one has read it. Very descriptive narration, felt like I was on the island. Listening really brings to life how horrible Hailey’s mother is and I hated that she gets a good ending. Hailey gives her too much compensation and compassion, especially after the nasty thing she did to Joelle. Enjoyable narration but due to outside circumstances it was disrupted a lot. Renovations going on in my house kept disturbing my listening time therefore breaking the flow of the story. I will be listening to this book again when I have some peace and quiet. BOOK REVIEW Another great story by this author. The Pearls of Desire are the focus of this series and they have a sad history attached to them but they help out those with true love in their hearts. Great story and well written plot that keeps us moving forward whilst still being around some of my favourite book characters. Took a while to warm up to Hailey as I felt she was weak willed, letting herself be manoeuvred all the time by other people. I understand her emotional connection to her mother but how long was she going to support her mother in an over inflated lifestyle. I can also understand her loathing of the media circus that would have ensued with her making a scene but this was her life that was being shanghaied. I did like her by the end of the book. Tim is such a sweetie. Cannot say enough about how lovely he was but once again the male chickens out of being honest with a woman he knows is his mate. Love the intertwined past between Jody and Hailey via the modelling campaigns. Hated the self-centred, self-absorbed mother and she did nothing to redeem herself. This is my honest review of this book.

Grizzled in Hawaii

The narrator beings this story to life, from the descriptions and the characters emotions. As for the story, who wouldn't want to cuddle up with a teddy bear of a man. What if it turns out he shifts into a bear and you have a wolf shifter and other people after you. It makes for adventure and love and fighting for the one you love. I received a complimentary audio and I am voluntarily reviewing.
