For years, Alan has been hiding away in a tiny logging town, running away from the demons of his past. He's a shapeshifter, a man who at the full moon becomes a bear, an unwanted lineage passed down to him, and one that he can't ever escape...or the harm it's done to those he loved most. As a result, he's sworn never to get close to anyone again. It's too dangerous...he's too dangerous.
Anna is fighting her own demons - a too-rough boyfriend that she followed to the town. Alan sticks up for her one night at the bar, and he can't ignore the fact that he's desperately attracted to her...a situation made worse when she shows up one night homeless and in need of help.
He can't turn her down, but with the full moon approaching, giving in to their desires could do more harm than good. And Alan must contend not only with desiring Anna, but the knowledge that she could mean more to him than just the casual fling he'd been wanting.
Are you ready to try something a little more "alpha" than you're used to? Don't worry, I won't tell a soul.
I was given this book in exchange for an unbiased review. This was a quick short story. It was a shift in the shifter stories. the man only changes into a bear once a month. He has learned to live alone after a tradegy that results in losing his first wife. He encounters another woman after three years.What happens after that is good. A great short story.

Because I love listening to Cynthia's stories, this one was a really good one too. It just goes to show you that not all relationships are the same. Alan had a previous relationship that turned him off to any more. Anna was in the same boat except for different reasons. The two were thrown together and love ensued. The narrator did a great job and the story was complete. The description of people, places and things was thorough enough to get the mind picture very clear. Looking forward to the next listen.

I have read quite a few audible books now by this author and others, and I have to say this narration was first class 100%! Addison Spear mastered both main characters voices, and I eagerly got in the car just to hear this story.
The story itself was also excellent, an original story line, but I don't think our lead Allan is much of a bad boy. He made a mistake years ago and it still haunts him today. He is afraid to find the right woman for fear of this mistake repeating itself.
Anna has her own boatload of present problems and she meets Allan in a bar when he stands up for her.
This was a sweet and sexy story of finding your mate; just enough paranormal to keep those readers happy and enough erotica to keep readers like myself captivated to the last page.
I was given this book in return for my honest unbiased opinion. I found this book to be so very entertaining. I love the Bear Shifter books but this isn't a book about finding a mate so the story is different. This isn't your typical shifter book which is refreshing and leaves so much more for the imagination when it's not so cookie cutter. I give this short story 5 stars.
This short story has just enough plot (bear-ly) to justify the romance. Turn down the lights, turn off your brain, and enjoy it for what it is.
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

I Love Cynthia Mendoza's shifter romance books, but this one had me shaking my head. I started to end the audible about 15 minutes into it because it was primarily full of a BORING SEX Scenario left for your imagination. Another 10 minute scenario involved the same thing. The audible is only an hour long, THANK GOD! The plot? who knows.. To sum it up without the visual scenarios: About a bear; 1st girl, Sex, Sex, Sex, then out into the woods she goes and who does she come across? 2nd girl, She meets the guy, Sex, Sex, Sex.. and promises not to go into the woods.. that's basically it in a nutshell. The narrator was horrible! Maybe she was new at this. No change in voice. It was like her reading from a book because this was a "Required Reading". Don't waste your time, not even if it is free.
