Braden Fields knew his assignment was only temporary. He had no intentions of remaining in the human town of Cloud Lake for a long period of time. Once he’d had his share of adventure and exploring he intended to go right back to Cadia, where he could live among his fellow bear shifters. Now that he’s found his mate in a human woman, nothing has changed. All he needs to do is convince her that she’s meant to be with him, and then they can go start their life in Cadia together. It was supposed to be easy. 

Elle Mirrine didn’t expect to fall for him. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what she did when her skates hit a rough patch of ice, depositing her flat on her back in front of him. But the tall, charismatic shifter saved her in the nick of time, much to the delight of her friends. The chance meeting with the hazel-eyed hunky shifter wasn’t something she expected, but it quickly morphed into something serious. 

The rapid development of feelings between them has overshadowed some other problems. While Braden may look human, Elle has a hard time remembering that he isn’t. He’s from a different world, one whose ideas may not be compatible with her way of thinking. While the two of them try to come to terms with their differences, a dangerous figure that has been lurking in the darkness finally comes forward, presenting a danger to Braden and Elle, and everyone they hold dear. 

If Braden is going to save the day and the girl, he’s going to have to face some hard truths, and make some difficult decisions. But when it comes to his mate, he won’t let anyone get in his way. He hopes someone will have mercy on their souls.

Because he wont.

Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

Title:  Baddest Bear Dad
Series:  Fated Mates Romance #6
Author:  Amelia Jade
Published:  September 23, 2017
My Rating:  4.5 stars

The A Fated Mate Romance set of stories has taken us on quite an adventure over these six books.  We’ve met some incredible men and women, human and shifters along the way.  And while it appears that this is the last story, there was mention of one still single shifter at the embassy … I never say done until the next series begins.  *grin*  Yet if Baddest Bear Dad does bring this part of the Cadia saga to a close it’s been one helluva ride.

Braden and Elle’s romance is full of fast paced action, danger, stubbornness and a bit of clueless-ness at times as well.  They were a delightful couple, even when being their most stubborn.  We meet up with  just about all of the characters we’ve come to know in the A Fated Mate Romance stories – and a few from previous stories.  The story wraps up very nicely… but there are still openings that I can see that may take us in a different direction.  Only time will tell on that.  I don’t want to get into detail on this story for it’s one you should experience for yourself.  But I will say it is well worth your time and it is a really, really good story.

I’ve had fun, I’ve enjoyed every single story… and I sincerely hope our time with the shifters of Cadia is not done just yet.

I’d recommend this story and all of the connecting series to any Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance reader who enjoys likable characters, a tight plot and surprises around every corner.  It’s rather addicting.

I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited Subscription.
