There was nothing ordinary about Honey Potts. From the tips of her Very Berry Pink toenails to the top of her curly auburn head, and every freckled mouthwatering inch of abundant skin in between, she was a force of nature that made Derek’s head spin.
For an experienced bear shifter like him, that could spell big trouble.


“I’m burning up,” she said matter-of-factly, the grin tilting her luscious lips full of wicked mischief. “I thought I’d join you for a swim.” Keeping her eyes on his face, she toed off her tennis shoes and put her hands on the bottom of her sunny top and began to inch it upward. 
“Like hell you are.” He made a cutting motion with his hand. “Dammit woman, keep that shirt on or I’ll…”

Fans of shifter romances will find this an entertaining read with some predictable moments, a delightful heroine, a conflicted hero who frequently frustrated me, and a bit of danger all combined in a quickly wrapped up HEA.  Much of the storyline has been seen before but I still found myself immersed in the story as Honey was a heroine you can't help but be drawn to.  She's sweet yet strong-willed and knows what she wants and isn't shy in going after it.  She's not some shrinking violet, she's a woman who's lived a full life and desperately wants Derek to rejoin the land of the living and stop hiding away with the pain of a past bad relationship his only companion.

Derek has come to this small town to escape the pain of his past and live in peace while licking his wounds from a relationship gone bad that has left him feeling untrusting of the opposite sex.  Once he meets Honey there's no more peace for him as his shifter side knows she's his mate which Derek fights every step of the way.  Derek is a sexy beast and I felt sympathetic towards him but was equally frustrated that he couldn't let go of his past.  He didn't even really love the woman, so to still be torn up over her cheating made me think less of him and felt unfair to Honey as he often left her in emotional limbo.  When danger came calling though he was there for Honey, keeping her safe and ultimately claiming her.

This story was a quick read with a nice flow that kept me entertained from start to finish.  There was unrelenting sexual tension from the very start but very little time spent culminating these intense sexual feelings which left me disappointed.  What didn't disappoint was Honey herself as she's a breath of fresh air, strong-willed and admirable in her actions.  I just wish she'd hit Derek in the head the moment they met so we could've enjoyed their romance much sooner as his wishy-washy nature became frustrating.  Ultimately this was an entertaining read and a nice addition to the paranormal genre.

My rating for this is a B-

*I received this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.
