Cover Description:

Silas Corrigan is a force of nature. He’s the no-nonsense bear shifter President of the Beartooth Brotherhood Motorcycle Club. He’s got people to protect, rivals to keep at bay, an arms trade business to keep afloat, women to use at his every whim, and above all, he supports the right to arm bears. When a new potential human client is thrown into the mix, Silas braces himself for a rough ride, but never expected to have the extra task of saving a sexy, mysterious woman on day one of the business deal. Sabrina is a complication, a headache he does not want to deal with right now.

So why is his bear growling to come out and claim her?

Sabrina Rizzo is no stranger to the underworld. She’s been at the sidelines of violence, crime and shady deals all her life, no matter how much she tries to outrun it. After her reality hits a new low, someone tries to forcibly remove her from the shaky ground she’s standing on. Then she meets Silas, and everything changes. The mix of fear, tension and attraction between them is dizzying, but fighting their magnetic pull can put her in more danger. This is why she just has three questions:

How much does he know?  What does he really want?   Is Silas Corrigan her savior or her kidnapper?

Outlaw MC Bear is a stand-alone, steamy bear shifter romance, and the first book in the Beartooth Brotherhood MC series. This bear shifter squad lives in the fictional desert town of Red Ridge, Arizona, affectionately known among shifters as Shifter Canyon.

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

I have to admit that I am not a devoted fan of MC stories.  I have a few that I’ve enjoyed, and I must be honest that any MC (paranormal or not) has to be equal to Motorcycle Man by Kristen Ashley in her Dream Man series.  If the hero cannot be somewhat like Tack in my mind, then I usually don’t review the book because it wasn’t high on my enjoyment range. (Hey, we all have our triggers and buttons – Tack is the tops in sexy anti-hero for me, and I suspect he always will be.)

I haven’t encountered a Motorcycle Club Shifter Romance until Bella Love-Wins’ title scrolled across the bottom of the Amazon page I was on.  The idea intrigued me so I took a chance and clicked.

What I discovered in Outlaw MC Bear was a detailed, sexy, intense story with vivid characters, an involved (but not convoluted) story line that I could easily see myself following throughout the series, Beartooth Brotherhood MC.  Silas may not be Kane “Tack” Allen, and Sabrina is no Tyra Masters – but they are close enough in theory to completely enjoy.

The Cover Description of this novel sets up the story very well, and I don’t feel the need for further teasers.  Silas can be an absolute jerk – but to be fair, Sabrina wasn’t exactly forthcoming with information that he actually needed to keep her safe.

If you enjoy Motorcycle Club intensity and shady dealing and if Shifter Romance is high on your reading list then Outlaw MC Bear and the series should be on your reading radar.  A completely enjoyable story with an intense, believable couple and secondary characters who will grab your imagination while you wait for their stories – this was a story that I would recommend without hesitation.
