Publisher's Summary

Part one of two! Cliffhanger....

HIM: I'm focused on two things: completing my degree and swimming. Until I meet her. But can she accept that I'm a shapeshifter? A polar bear?

HER: I'm practically a born-again virgin, I'm so focused on my studies. Until I meet him when he comes to my rescue at a frat party. I feel out of place at the sunny, SoCal university I'm at, a plus-sized, red-headed woman amongst a sea of tall, thin blondes. Is it possible he's attracted to me too?

Ben is Ivy League-bound. Focused on his schoolwork and swim-team scholarship, he's ambitious and won't allow anything or anyone to get in the way of his life goals. Amber is used to being the awkward best friend. Curvy and fair-headed, fair-skinned - she doesn't fit in with most of the students at the sunny California university she attends. When Ben comes to Amber's rescue, he's not prepared for the strong attraction and draw to the sweet, curvy woman. His bear is all about it, but he has to play it right so he can enjoy their time together without his coach getting on his case.

A good start

I quite enjoyed this story, but for me personally I want the whole story, I don't really like having to wait for the conclusion of the story. Having said that, what there was of this story was very good and I enjoyed the dynamics between Ben and Amber and it's nice that Ben is such a gentleman, it makes a change in this day and age. I liked that he makes Amber feel special and that he also wants to be honest with her about what he is before going further into their relationship.

I just have to listen to part two next!

Nicely sized!

contemporary, romance, shifters, novella

Excellent fun read about two academically minded college students with an un-bear-able physical attraction to each other. She feels that she is overweight, he is concerned about her possible reaction to his being a bear shifter. Situational and verbal humor make this one different from the same old stuff. Looking for the next one, but glad that it's broken up into parts so that I can get other things done!
Steven Washington did a fine narration for this Whispersync on the cheap!

Excepting, Protecting, and not giving up

This was an awesome book.. The thing about this author is she has away of driving the point home. See Amber who was a plus size woman was not ashamed of her size. The thing i loved about Ben was he was not afraid to show that the like women with curves and he would not stand for anyone making her feel not worth of his interest.

Here Amber and Ben were both in college. Ben was doing his best to stay focused on school and keep his coach and team off his back. He was one that did not look at the barbie style women that so wanted for him to look their way. No he needed more. He needed his mate and he knew his mate would be one to his like and oh how he was right about that.

Amber has a few surprises. See she is going to have to find out there is more to Ben then meets the eyes. Not only will Ben have to tell her that he is a polar bear shifter but that she is his mate.

This is a lot of one person to take in but the one thing about mates is they are accepting. You will so enjoy this love story about these two. Trust me when I say the author does not disappoint. I so can not wait for the next book in the series.
