No Ifs, Ands or Bears About It : Review

by Celia Kyle

The first day of Mia’s new life in Grayslake, Georgia is not going as planned. The house her grandfather left her looks ready to crumble, boxes cover every inch of the floor and—oh—there’s a bear cub in her pantry. It gets worse when the cub’s uncle comes by and busts out his fur and claws while on her front porch. Then it gets loads better because suddenly there’s a hot hunk of badge-wearing werebear on her lawn ready to rescue her. Yum. Of course, he has to ruin things by trying to take the cub out of her hands. Ha! The cub is hers… No ifs, ands, or bears about it.

Werebear Ty can’t seem to get the curvaceous, delectable Mia to understand that, even if she is one-quarter werebear, she isn’t keeping the cub. Ty is the Grayslake Itan, the clan’s leader, and the little werebear is going home with him… Unless it isn’t. It’s her smile. If she’d stop smiling and being gorgeous, his inner-bear would support him and Ty would get his way. But the beast wants to make their woman happy, so it’s perfectly content to let her do as she pleases. Then things change. Threats arise, danger comes close, and Ty demands she return to his den. No ifs, ands, or mates about that.

My Review
Mia has moved into the house her grandfather left her and from the first day her new house is full of surprises. She finds a bear cub in her cupboard and being part werebear she knows there is more to this bear cub than meets the eye. She will do anything to protect this cub from his crazy uncle to the werebear clan leader. He is her responsibility and she vows nothing more will hurt him. Ian the local clan leader would never hurt a cub or the woman he knows is meant to be his. He just has to convince her he will protect them both and they would be safer at his den. Mia might not be able to shift but she will do anything to protect the cub and all the while she tries to sort her feelings for Ian. Danger is closing in on them and Mia and Ian will have to fight to protect those they care about.

Mia is a great character as she is part werebear but can't shift. She doesn't let that stop her from being protective as a real momma bear or willing to get in the face of angry werebear shifters. She won't back down and she tries to understand her feelings for Ian. A few times she did a few things that got on my nerves but that just made her better as she wasn't a perfect character. Ian is a sexy shifter who is really still trying to get the understanding of being a leader. He does a great job at it he just doesn't understand the need to know more about those he cares for. He really grows to understand his role in the clan and his feelings for Mia as he story goes by.

I really enjoyed this story as I haven't read many about bear shifters before. The characters in this book are wonderfully written as they really show their human and bear sides and the thin line they walk between them. Mia and Ian have to overcome trusting each other, a danger that is after them and even people with narrow minds. Ian won't give Mia up for anything and he has to face people who don't want them together. Mia also has to come face to face with the past that gave her a start on life. Her past and future combine to make a wonderful story. There is sexual tension between Mia an Ian but that is just part of this wonderful story. There is lots of action as several fights take place and there is more than just bear shifters in this story.If you like paranormal shifter books I would recommend this one to you.
