Heartsridge Shifters: Jake by Olivia Arran

Bear shifter Jake Hunter is the resident psycho of team South-One. He lives his life by his own set of rules, screw the consequences or what anyone else might think. His rules are simple: no one is allowed to get too close. The reason? Because they might die. So why is he even wasting time thinking about Harper and what it would be like to be with a woman like her? Because he’s a fool, that’s why.  

Harper Kelly has adjusted pretty well to being a newly bitten and turned fox shifter. No more traveling the world, chasing the perfect picture. She’s stuck in Heartsridge with the rest of the registered shifter population, and she’s fine with it. Honest. Or, she would be if it wasn’t for a certain man winding her up, flashing his chiseled abs and a whole lot more, his eyes daring her to do something about it. Oh, and he happens to be her neighbor. Temptation in a wood clad cabin, only two minutes from her own front door? She’d be knocking on that door with a bottle of something and a smile on her face if it wasn’t for two things. One, it’s Jake, who won’t even have a civil conversation with her. Two, she has the strangest feeling that he might be her fated mate. A booty call would be fine. But, love? No thank you.  

Unfortunately, Fate has a way of taking things into its own hands and Harper has a need to prove herself as useful. Throw in Jake’s overprotective nature and inability to relinquish control, and the pair might find themselves fast reassessing their options.  

And let’s not forget the Purists who are trying to destroy Heartsridge. They’re still causing all kinds of trouble. 

But, when a man who won’t let anyone get close and a woman who’s been burned by love before finally stop running from the truth, anything can happen. 

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