Synopsis (From Goodreads)
Bleu has been living an isolated life away from the clan of Grayslake. He’s a happy bear shifter, building furniture and being alone…until a little curvy woman literally crashes into his life. When he pulls her from her car after she wraps it around a tree, he is blindsided by the connection. Never before has he wanted a mate, but finding Lola changes all that.
Lola didn’t plan on her deadbeat mom blowing the rent and then skipping town, so she’s without a home. Again. But this time it’s going to be different. Hearing whispers of shifters in Grayslake, she takes off in search of something, anything, that can bring some light to her life. When her car slips and she ends up in danger, she never expects her rescuer to be the one to give her everything she’s ever wanted.
Will being snowed in lead to steamy nights and mating bites? You betcha!
Warning: This is a short shifter story filled with sweet cheesy possessiveness and lots of growling. Obviously. Go ahead and read it. You know you want to!
My thoughts on Growling for Mine
WARNING: This have spoilers. You’ve been warned.
Alexa Riley is one of those authors, in my opinion, that have the art of the short story telling mastered, specially if we are talking about insta-love romances, and that in this case is amazing.
Bleu is a bear shifter that lives alone in a wooden cabin near Grayslake. Lola is a woman tired of being her mothers crutch and bank. They find each other after a car crash in a snow storm, and they stay together since then.
What makes this book great? Bleu. Simply put, that bear shifter is the cute’s thing I have ever seen, specially when he gets over protective and doesn’t let Lola walk, even to the bathroom, when she wakes up 2 days after the accident.
I know, I know. It should be annoying but I was in a mood and this was perfect. Sweet, over protective, in love at first sight kind of thing. I really enjoy it but what puts the cherry on top of it all is that belong to the Grayslake series in a way.
Celia Kyle is the original author of the Grayslake series and having Alexa Riley use is as a background for a short story like this one, it was just too good. She really did a great job and I find that this is going to be one of my favourites from Alexa.
The writing was sweet, the pace was nice and the sexy scale was waaaaay high up. The biggest cute moment for me was when she tricked him to let him know she was pregnant, that was just plain adorable.
I learned something new: boob-trance *laughing out loud*
“What about when it’s time for me to go?” A deep growl comes from the kitchen, making me look that way. Or maybe I’m not going anywhere after all.
My eyes run up and down his big body, and I wonder if there are Bigfoot shifters. He’s flipping huge.
I’m starting to think I was made to be a shifter just so I’m fast enough to keep her little ass safe.
FYI... If you haven’t read any of Alexa’s book before, what the F@$& are you waiting?
