Tegan Ryan is tired of being an outcast. Being the offspring of bear shifters, but lacking the ability to shift, keeps her detached from the shifter world; and living with bear shifters, and keeping their secrets, keeps her from fully connecting with humans. Her height, along with miles of plus-sized curves, doesn’t help the situation, and neither does the bone deep desire she has for her brother’s best friend.
Ethan Brooks, a black bear shifter, and second-in-command for his small clan, has loved Tegan since the day she was born, but he never understood their connection until her eighteenth birthday. Unfortunately, Tegan’s feelings toward him didn’t change, and in an effort to save his sanity, he buried his longing and tried to ignore it.
Realizing you’ll never truly fit in anywhere is devastating, but Tegan knows it’s the truth. When her alpha grants her permission to leave, she doesn’t waste time embracing her new life, but that doesn’t stop old threats from emerging. After years of unsuccessfully denying his bear, Ethan won’t let anything stop him from claiming his mate…but he’ll have to face one pissed-off alpha, a raving lunatic, and a skeptical curvy beauty that owns his heart, even if she doesn’t know it yet. He’s definitely got his work cut out for him.
This is yet another delicious and amazing tale from Rube Shae AND!! The start to a new series!! How much better could it be!!
Ethan has loved Tegan since the moment she was born and knew that she was his mate, when she turned 18! But Ethan has kept this wonderful blessing to himself, not because He wanted too! But because Tegan struggled with the one thing he could not help her overcome...she was not a bear!! Not that it made a difference to Ethan! He wanted her, but thought he was doing what was best for her...until she left!
Now Ethan is on a mission to get Tegan back in his life, even if that means defying his alphas wishes! But will Tegan believe him?
I'm completely enchanted by this new Blackbeary Creek series and it's only the first book! I absolutely loved Ethan and Tegan's characters, I'm also totally intrigued by Tristan! The hotel owners and the rest of Blackbeary Creek.
The plot was sweet but with the hint of the dark side. The writing was smooth and inspired....I cannot wait till book two!
I give Ethan 5 Stars!
