Oliver Hawthorne is used to getting what he wants.

The tech giant of Hawthorne Global needs land to complete his latest project or he could lose millions. The only problem is that Savannah Galloway has no interest in selling her family’s property—and it’s exactly what the exec needs.

When the two come face-to-face, negotiations aren’t the only thing that get heated.

Oliver can’t deny his bear wants Savannah. But can he convince her she should give in to her deepest desires and let his bear win? As far as he’s concerned, it’s all a little Bear Play, baby.

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

Titles in the Promise Lake: The Hawthorne Brothers series include:  Bear Game – Bear Play –

( although these titles are not listed numerically as a series, each story follows a Hawthorne brother in a series like order – to keep them straight in my own mind I’ve listed this grouping of stories as a series taken from the covers of the novellas))

Title:  Bear Play
Series:  Promise Lake: The Hawthorne Brothers #2
Author:  Ally Summers & Terra Wolf
Published:  February 22, 2017
My Rating:  4 stars

At the beginning of Bear Play Oliver Hawthorne comes off as an entitled jerk.  It’s true – he sees land, he wants the land, and with a snap of his fingers and his anger he intends to get the property he wants – after all, everyone has their price.  Yeah, not always.  Savannah certainly doesn’t have that price available to Oliver since not only is this property that she inherited from her uncle all she wants and needs, the Hawthorne’s have taken away a dream of hers in the past.  So there is no way that she’s selling out to Oliver Hawthorne.  and the battle of wills is now fully engaged between Oliver and Savannah – and the need to protect and claim his mate as well.

I had fun with Bear Play.  Savannah and Oliver are well matched in their stubbornness, their attraction for each other and in their need to protect each other.  There is unexpected danger afoot, a glimpse at a couple from the first Hawthorne story as they are today, plenty of sexy times and an entertaining story.  I would recommend this story for any Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance reader.  While it’s certainly not necessary to this story line, you might want to pick up Bear Game as well since these two stories do somewhat tie in to each other.  Plus it’s a good, fun and sexy story as well.

I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription.
