Haley Adams used to have what she thought was a good life. Then it imploded in spectacular, awful fashion. After a long time, she’s finally ready to get out and live again. Leaving everything behind for a fresh start, she lands in the mountain shifter town of Deep Hollow, home to the Silvertip grizzly bear clan. When she meets impossibly attractive bear shifter Cortez Walker, her life is about to change again. All she needs to do is let go—and trust.

Cortez is a thrill seeker who used to live life on a risky edge. But a terrible accident proved that everything can change in a split second. Haunted by his failure to protect those who needed it, he struggles to find peace again even as he doubts everything he ever thought he did best. Then he meets Haley. Now he faces the biggest risk of all: opening his heart and claiming her as his mate. He’s up to the challenge—but first he’ll have to prove he can be her rescue bear.

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

Title:  Rescue Bear
Series:  Silvertip Shifters
Author:  J.K. Harper
Published:  March 28, 2018
My Rating:  4.5 stars

Cortez and Haley have both had events happen that have shaded how they view themselves, even trusting their own instincts is in question these days.  Neither was looking for a special attraction.  After all, Haley is human while Cortez is a bear shifter, so they weren’t looking for sparks flying every which way but they certainly were.  Soon those embers will flare into flame as Haley and Cortez get closer and begin to realize what they are to each other – mates.  But danger also surrounds them.  It wont be long before everything they hold dear is threatened when Haley’s past returns and the present they have together is tied in with it.

There are some delicious twists in Rescue Bear, and I’m looking forward to seeing where they might eventually lead – but that’s for the future.  Cortez and Haley make an intriguing couple.  Each is fighting their own demons but together they can overcome so much more.  I liked them both and enjoyed their story very much.  We’ll get a glimpse of couples we’ve met before and the hint of other attractions going on as well.  The villain in this case was truly demented and vile – and deserved everything he got.  Engaging sexy couple, tight knit community, danger to be faced, everything that fuels my love for Shifter Romance.  I would happily recommend Rescue Bear and this series to any Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance reader.
