Katie knows just what she wants: a hot, normal guy like Jake. She’s in for a surprise…

Copper-haired, curvy Katie grew up watching her mother chase one alpha bear after another, and swore that would never be her. She wants nothing to do with werebears, especially pushy, conceited alphas. When she meets sexy street musician Jake, the heat between them is instant and undeniable. He seems too good to be true, and everything she ever wanted. 

Jake can’t believe his good luck when he sees Katie. She’s everything he’s ever dreamed of in a mate, and his instincts says she’s destined to be his. Jake’s a rare thing: a werebear living in the big city. He’s on the run from his past, refusing to be the alpha his family expects. 

It’s destiny versus reality when Jake has to decide how he and his bear can overcome Katie’s reluctance and convince her that he’s the right bear for her, and Katie has to decide whether to let her past rule her future. 

Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other- in other words, there’s going to be sex involved in this story – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

Title:  The Right Bear’s Arms

My Rating:  4 stars

The Right Bear’s Arms is a lighthearted, quick, very sexy read.  I had fun with this title.  I enjoy when authors add to the lore of a genre with their own takes on some things, and Nora Eli added a slight twist that immediately caught my attention.

Katie’s upbringing has shown her that she wants absolutely nothing to do with an alpha.  Nothing, at all.  She is instantly attracted to a customer at the diner where she works, and the feeling seems to be returned.  Almost too good to be true, right?  When Katie discovers that Jake is exactly what she’s running from in life, she halts their romance cold.  Now Jake has to convince her that not all alphas are equal, but to do that he has to find her again.

I adored Katie’s grandmother.  In a loving but no nonsense way she sets her granddaughter straight on many things, including exactly what a mate is and should be.  The Right Bear’s Arms is certainly steamy, and an interesting love story with a twist.  If you enjoy hot and fast romance, likable characters and a touch more information added to the shifter genre, then you’d have fun with this story.  I know I did.
