Bear Attraction by Jennifer Ashley

Bear Attraction by Jennifer Ashley Purchase:

    She was a tall, sexy-as-hell Shifter woman who turned into a bear — not your usual girl next door.

    Rebecca, caught by the Shifter Bureau in a forbidden area, is charged to help Walker Danielson, on military attachment to the bureau, to find a woman suspected of being abducted by Shifters. Rebecca has no choice but to agree.

    Walker and Rebecca met when Walker was abducted and ended up tied up on Rebecca’s floor. Now the tables are turned, and Rebecca has to go along with whatever Walker proposes. As they find themselves in danger with wilder Shifters not under the Austin Shiftertown’s control, Rebecca discovers what kind of strengths Walker has. The mating frenzy Walker touched when he had been Rebecca’s captive now flares to life as the two fight to find the missing woman and survive the mission.

    Contains mature themes.

    Another good book by Jennifer Ashley she’s one of my favorite authors.
I love this shifter series. The concept of collaring shifters is actually pretty believable.

    Actually along the same lines as concentration camps. I’m really interested to see where this series is going to go I’m wondering if we are ever going to see the ship the community free without callers or if were going to see a or uprising of the shifter the community.

    I like a strong heroin and that’s with this but provided a very strong here when and a man whom wasn’t afraid of a woman who may be stronger than him physically but still had feminine appeal.

    Review by Sheila M:

    “She was a tall, sexy-as-hell Shifter woman who turned into a bear — not your usual girl next door.”

    THE STORY: Rebecca is a bear shifter who lives in Shiftertown. Shifters are treated as second class citizens where they are collared and subjected to laws to restrict their movements and behavior. One night Rebecca is apprehended when she is taking a run and ends up going through a restricted area. She is taken into custody by Major Walker Danielson. Walker is the liaison between the Shifter Bureau (which is in charge of Shifters) and Shiftertown. Walker has grown to understand Shifters and especially Rebecca. In order to save her life, Walker has gotten the agreement that Rebecca will be released into his custody in order to help him find a missing woman who is believed to have been abducted by shifters.

    OPINION: Readers join this romance already in progress. Rebecca and Walker have already met and although they had a confrontational first impression, they were also attracted to one another. Months have passed and although the two have flirted with one another, neither has made a move. The novella is about how they finally get together. This novella also solves a mystery from prior novels about the disappearance of the woman. Ashley has a complex story structure in this series. Mysteries and challenges are developed and solved over time and various novels and novellas rewarding the long time reader while keeping each book pretty self contained. Rebecca and Walker are a more straightforward couple than might have been expected and Ashley makes the decision to make the drama about the mystery rather than the romance. It is clear from almost the start that Rebecca and Walker are meant to be together and just need that final push to get them there. I like the story and the characters and was glad to see old friends again.

    WORTH MENTIONING: There is a new group of shifters introduced in this novella.

    FINAL DECISION: A good balance between action, story and character and romance, BEAR ATTRACTION is a fun read. Not as emotional as some of the shifter books, this one is more action adventure with a good dash of romance.

    CONNECTED BOOKS: BEAR ATTRACTION is number 6.5 in the Shifters Unbound series. The story, however, builds upon previous books where Walker and Rebecca already had encountered one another. A new reader can start here and be satisfied although it is better experienced after reading the other books in the series.
