Publisher: Carina Press
Publication Date: November 28th, 2016
Characters: Derek, Bria
Bear shifters exist. Professor Bria Lane has known this since she was a child. Now she’s returned to the forests of Deep Creek to prove it to the world. She has no idea how close she is to that proof in ruggedly sexy park ranger Derek Poole. Intimately close. But uncovering Derek’s wild side comes with a shattering price.
Like a magnet meeting metal, Derek is drawn to Bria. His destiny. His mate. So beautiful and so vulnerable. So dangerous, too: an encroachment of lions, vengeful and vicious, is closing in and they’re ready for war. Now is not the time to be distracted like a lovesick cub.
If Bria reveals the truth of the Deep Creek shifters to the world, she’ll bring out the worst of both sides. But Derek can’t hide his secrets from the love of his life forever. He knows they’re playing with fire—and that when passion runs this hot, this reckless, someone’s bound to get burned.
In the Shifter Wars series, the war has begun, and by the end, there won’t be a clear victor.
Pursuing the Bear is the best in the series so far. Bria as a child witness a magical event which lead her to her future career. Now to make tenured in her professional field, she must utilize what she seen as a child. To do that she must go back to the forest and hopefully gain more knowledge of the paranormal event which may change everything wished for.
I think some people may even relate to the Bria character. Besides having the pressure of making tenured, her over achieving parents who are also Professors is putting the pressure on Bria to make a name for herself. But once she returns to Deer Creek and meets ranger Derek Poole all the pressure in a way was off. I like how Derek was the shy type that knew what he wanted, but didn’t come off to strong. You could really tell that Derek wasn’t one of those alpha bears. But as soon as Bria was caught up in the war between the lions and bears Derek whole persona changed.
Pursuing the Bear was a fast pace and well developed tell. Even though this is the 2nd book for the Shifter Wars series, this book can be read as a stand-alone.
