Rebel Bear (Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire #2)
by Anna Lowe
Up-and-coming supermodel Hailey Crewe can’t wait to escape the limelight and return to the modest, 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. 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.
Rebel Bear is a fast-paced, emotion-packed paranormal romance filled with yearning, sizzling passions, and forbidden love. Ready to be swept off to sunny Maui’s suspense-filled shifter side?
Diving into book 2 of this series, I was excited to see the shifters again.
The start of the book had me so angry at the stupid man putting a Hailey in a difficult position and then making it worse by chasing her. Luckily Tim the bear shifter was around to lend a hand, and start the journey of you guess it... fated mates.
This book was very sweet, it had a good storyline, passion, lots of emotions along with a mother that needs telling to butt out, in the nicest possible way of course.
I really like Hailey, she knew what she didn't want, and soon learns what she really wants and it has fur. Tim isn't high in the pecking order of shifter world and has to follow orders to an extent, but when it comes down to mates, the rules go out the window.
An entertaining, warm and furry read with passion.
