Audrey Foster is a shifter among humans. Forced to register her animal side to the public and desperate to meet other shifters like herself, she finds love on a matchmaking site with the big, brawler, alpha grizzly of the Boarlander Crew. She leaves her small hometown destined for a face-to-face meeting with Harrison Lang that will change her life forever. The only problem is he doesn’t seem to realize they are dating, and now his crew is on the defense, trying to keep her from getting too close to their secret life up in the wilds of Damon’s Mountains.
Harrison has no time for the crazy woman at the bar who seems to think she knows him. His crew of lumberjack bear shifters is falling apart around him, and he’s making desperate moves to save what’s left of his trailer park. The last thing he needs is some human sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong. Too bad he can’t stop thinking about her, and now the mysterious beauty has him considering big changes for Boarland Mobile Park.
Audrey wants a big boss bear, but she’s in way over her head, because the Boarlanders are not what they seem. Watch out Gray Backs…there’s a new C-team in town.
Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

Title: Boarlander Boss Bear
Series: Boarlander Bears #1
Author: T. S. Joyce
Published: January 22, 2016
My Rating: 4.5 stars
Harrison may be stressed from being the Alpha of the most unruly, trouble-making, messed up crew around but he’s pretty sure he’d remember an online romance with a mating at the ending of the deal. So what in the world was this crazy, admittedly lovely, woman talking about. He had no clue who she was or what she thought she knew about him – he’d never heard of her before this unreal moment in time. Audrey is stunned at meeting Harrison face to face. How can he not know who she is? They’ve been in contact for so long and everything was falling together perfectly. She’d left home just to be with him. What in the world is happening?
Ah, someone among the crews of Damon’s Mountains has some serious explaining to do… and with a dating site called bangaboarlander – well, which mischief maker comes to your mind first? Maybe an Almost Alpha with a love for worms perhaps?
As we get set to dive into the next crew in Damon’s Mountains to get their stories told, Boarlander Boss Bear starts us off with quite an amazing story. By this time in this overarching connecting set of series we’ve run across, in one way or another, most of this crew. I’m glad that they all will get their own stories told finally. Clinton will finally have his story laid out for us to understand his very strange actions and attitudes. He is a man in pain and I’m looking forward to that story.
Audrey and Harrison’s romance is full of the type of drama that only these crews can produce. While she might have come to the mountains under an illusion of reality, it won’t take long before the obvious magic of 1010 and her mate come into play. I liked Audrey. She is so much stronger than she gives herself credit for, and when it comes to doing what’s right she will harm herself before others. Together she and Harrison can head up, and help, this ragtag crew of theirs.
It’s always enjoyable when characters from previous stories make appearances once again. These series really are like a huge family, and you never know who is going to drop in. Yet if I had to make a choice of who my favorite over all characters are, hands down that would be Willa and Beaston. While they are not mates, their connection is perhaps just as strong in a different way. Willa is a crazy character who never does the expected but she is as loyal to her own as anyone ever could be. Beaston is such a softy now, yes, he wasn’t always that way. He’s powerful, a bit mystic and there is something so loyal and true about this gentle giant.
I would highly recommend Boarlander Boss Bear and this entire overall series to any Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance reader. You will always find interesting stories, likable characters, sexy times and a sense of community that is rarely found to this extent. They are all quite addicting.
