Book Review: No Ifs, Ands, or Bears About It by Celia Kyle's + giveaway

No Ifs, Ands, or Bears About It (Grayslake #1)
By: Celia Kyle

The first day of Mia’s new life in Grayslake, Georgia is not going as planned. The house her grandfather left her looks ready to crumble, boxes cover every inch of the floor and—oh—there’s a bear cub in her pantry. It gets worse when the cub’s uncle comes by and busts out his fur and claws while on her front porch. Then it gets loads better because suddenly there’s a hot hunk of badge-wearing werebear on her lawn ready to rescue her. Yum. Of course, he has to ruin things by trying to take the cub out of her hands. Ha! The cub is hers… No ifs, ands, or bears about it.

Werebear Ty can’t seem to get the curvaceous, delectable Mia to understand that, even if she is one-quarter werebear, she isn’t keeping the cub. Ty is the Grayslake Itan, the clan’s leader, and the little werebear is going home with him… Unless it isn’t. It’s her smile. If she’d stop smiling and being gorgeous, his inner-bear would support him and Ty would get his way. But the beast wants to make their woman happy, so it’s perfectly content to let her do as she pleases. Then things change. Threats arise, danger comes close, and Ty demands she return to his den. No ifs, ands, or mates about that.
Sheriff Ty is the leader of his clan and when he tries and fails to take the cub off Mia's hands, he has her and the cub stay with him at his home. But can he talk her into staying?

Mia is a tough, funny and very maternal heroine. What more could we want in a heroine, right? She's always quick with a funny one liner, a sexy smile, a sarcastic come back or a hug for cub she's now in charge of. I really liked how she interacted with Ty and the secondary characters in the story and I hope some of those secondary characters get their own books because they are great.

Ty is the perfect alpha male hero. He's gorgeous, caring, smart and he can cook! He's ready to make Mia give the cub back to the boys uncle until he finds out why the cub is so scared of the uncle and why he was hiding in Mia's pantry in the first place.

The sexual tension between these two could have been cut with a knife and even though this book isn't filled with lots of hot sex, once they end up together the sex was hot!

Family secrets, an interspecies truce and werebear battle of claws and teeth round out this great story.

I easily give this book 5 sheep!

  5. I've bought this one and finished it just a couple of hours ago. It was a fun read. Not as great as the master (Shelly Laurenston) but still a good read. I liked both the hero and heroine and although sometimes it was a bit gory in the battle scenes, it had great love scenes! I'm eagerly awaiting the rest of the series!
