Bear Attraction: A Shifters Unbound Novella by Jennifer Ashley
Publication Date: February 17, 2015

Rated: 4.5 Stars


Jennifer Ashley’s New York Times bestselling Shifters Unbound series continues as a Shifter and a human are faced with the unexpected, undeniable pull of a bond…

As the military liaison between the human Shifter Bureau and Shiftertown, Walker is often stuck trying to appease both sides—and angering both. So when bear-Shifter Rebecca is captured taking a run in a restricted area, Walker has to talk fast to get her released. The compromise: if Rebecca helps him find a missing woman—thought to have been abducted by a Shifter—she won’t be charged and executed.

Mate-less Rebecca is not happy to be under Walker’s supervision. As a bear used to roaming for miles, she hates being confined and restricted, she distrusts anything involving humans, and—worst of all—the strong and handsome Walker starts triggering her mating need.

They have no choice but to work together, and as they continue their search for the missing girl, uncovering secrets neither Shifters nor humans want them to know, both Walker and Rebecca find it hard not to mix business with pleasure…

I really enjoyed this installment in the Shifters Unbound series. Rebecca is a strong alpha female that is still likeable while Walker is an alpha human without being too domineering. They made the perfect couple. It took a long time to finally ‘get together’ because of everything going on around them but it was worth the wait. I liked the angle and intrigue as it kept you wanting to know what happens next while letting everyone’s personality shine through. A great mix of characters and a smoldering romance. A fun quick read.

  1. Huh. I was really confused until I saw it was a novella – when you pull up the Shifters Unbound list at Amazon, it doesn’t show up.. but now I see that several items don’t show up when you search just the “series”…. so I have several to catch up on! Woo hoo! I love Tiger, but the bears are still my favorite, especially that cuddly little baby polar bear Olaf… Bodyguard is still my favorite of the series, besides Tiger. Thanks for pointing this out to me! 😉
