Constructing a home for his mate may be this big bear builder’s hardest job of all… 

Garrett Wilson has finally found his mate. And even if his best friends and coworkers are suspicious of the sudden revelation that it’s their newest client, Garrett trusts the bear inside him to know best. There’s just one small issue…she doesn’t know he’s a bear, and they’re only now meeting for the first time. 

Dawn Henderson thought she was ready to pick up stakes and move her life out to the little town of Silver Lake, but she never expected her contractor to be an impossibly tall, handsome and kind man that makes new parts of her wake up inside. The problem is he wants everything, and she’s not sure she’s ready to take that kind of chance. 

Whatever it takes, Garrett is going to build Dawn the home of her dreams. And along the way, he’s going to show her the true depths of a bear’s love. But even though their chemistry is earth-shattering, there are secrets out in the woods surrounding Dawn’s new home, and no amount of work may be able to protect their budding dreams. 

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.

Titles in the Built Fur Love series include:  Love at Furst Sight – Mine Furever – Purrfect for Me

Title:  Love at Furst Sight
Series:  Built Fur Love #1
Author:  Terry Bolryder
Published:  September 3, 2018
My Rating:  4.5  stars

Love at Furst Sight is a change of pace shifter romance coming in hot on the heels of the intense Nightmare Dragons series.  It’s a much more laid back romance with one bear who knows he’s found his mate but no clue how exactly to tell her the truth.  Garrett along with his friends Grayson and Hunter can put up that brand new home in the clearing of the forested land that Dawn owns with little trouble… the trouble comes as to where that land is located, and who believes it belongs to them exclusively.

I will step right up and declare myself a Terry Bolryder fan and devoted reader yet I can understand why this story feels slower… because it is, and that’s okay, really it is.  It took a few pages for me to fall into the slower, laid back rhythm  of Love at Furst Sight.  There is action to come, there are bad guys to be dealt with but are they really that bad when they’re defending what they believe to be theirs… a complex question and situation.  I liked Dawn in some ways but not enough, I even understood her reasoning, but I frankly never connected with her so it was up to the shifters in this one to hold my attention… and they did.

Without giving away what could be seen as spoilers, I believe it’s going to be fascinating to see how this situation develops and plays out over the next few books.  If I stretch my imagination I could see more than the three friends finding their mates and their happy endings… but time will tell on that, so I’ll leave it to the future.  In all I discovered yet another “crew” made up of diverse friendships to fall in love with, an interesting story to start off the series and questions that I cannot wait to find the answers to.  If you love Paranormal Romance, Shifter Romance or simply Terry Bolryder Romance (smiles) then you’d enjoy the first of the Built Fur Love series, Love at Furst Sight.
