My Rating: Five Sexy Bearlicious Stars*****
Oh my! I loved, loved, loved Bearista by Zoe Chant. It's no secret I'm a Zoe Chant fan and enjoy everything she writes, but this book is definitely one of my all-time favorites! Bearista is a sexy, fast-paced, easy-to-follow, novella-length, standalone paranormal romance filled to the brim with pulse-pounding danger, riveting action, heart-wrenching drama, undeniable attraction, steamy passion and, of course, heartwarming romance. It's also a perfect example of why I love Chant's books. Chant is a talented wordslinger and skilled wordsmith who consistently publishes well crafted and edited paranormal/supernatural/fantasy romance. When Chant releases a book, I never even bother to read the blurb; I just one-click and dive in. I've never read a Chant story I didn't like and Bearista is no exception. The narrative is beautifully written in the third person with clearly defined his and her perspectives. The dialogue is smart, snappy, well-executed, sometimes humorous, and flows effortlessly. I never tire of Chant's imaginative settings, riveting storylines, skilled execution, and perfect prose but, without a doubt, my favorite element is the wonderful cast of diverse, captivating, and always engaging characters. I was immediately smitten with our two protagonists: curvaceous, plucky human Gaby Diaz and fearless, tough-as-nails bear-shifter Derek Ruger. Gaby is a hardworking, selfless, single mom and student, beautiful both inside and out, working full-time as a barista to support her five-year-old son Sandy and disabled mother Luisa, while attending college classes at night to earn her degree in business. Kindhearted Gaby has no time for dating, relationships, or distractions of any kind, but after witnessing a robbery on her way to work and becoming the target of a psycho polar bear shifter, she's forced to accept around the clock protection from a hot, handsome bodyguard hired by the police to whom she's unnaturally attracted. Derek Ruger is a hardened former mercenary and private security specialist bear shifter, now freelancing as a bodyguard and bouncer. He agreed to accept a job protecting a witness as a favor to his longtime friend, police lieutenant Keegan. Unfortunately, the perp is an old enemy who almost killed him years ago in Peru while working for an international security company. He and his bear both want to bring this criminal to justice, and a little payback for the scars on his body that serve as a daily reminder of his brush with death would go a long way in satisfying his need for revenge. But after meeting his new client, all bets are off. Derek never believed the stories his grandmother told about shifters and fated mates. He thought they were all tall tales - until he meets beautiful barista, Gaby Diaz. It takes only one look for Derek and his bear to know that Gaby Diaz is much more than just a job - she's their mate Oh my! Derek and Gaby are just perfect together. And Gaby's mom, Luiza, and son, Sandy, are just adorable! They added so much to the story. No spoilers from me but I will say this... Beautiful, hardworking human heroine who witnesses a lot more than just a crime-check! Handsome former mercenary bear shifter who realizes there are more important things than revenge-check! Danger, drama, action, and an old enemy hell-bent on payback-check! An adorable five-year-old and hilarious matchmaking mother-check! Undeniable attraction, fiery passion, and dreamy romance-you bet! That and a whole lot more!
Did I like this story? No, I LOVED it! WOuld I recommend it? You bet and I am but only for adult readers since it does contain explicit sex scenes. Will I read this author again? Absolutely! ANd finally, was I entertained? Completely! Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!
Derek River is a grizzly bear shifter & a friend of the policeman in charge of the investigation of the robbery that Gaby saw. The policeman, Keegan, calls Derek in to protect Gaby until the robbers are caught. Once Derek got to the scene of the crime & took a look around he realizes & tells Keegan that his old nemesis "Ghost" is one of the robbers; which also means that Gaby is in a lot more trouble than she would be. When Derek finally goes into the coffee shop where Gaby works & sets eyes on her, he immediately knows that she's his mate.
This is the beginning of not only their mating but also their adventure in keeping her & her family alive.
This book was very good because of the plot of good vs bad, the shooting scenes & the not very descriptive sex scenes.
***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, and no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! I have bought this book because I loved it, and I own most of Zoe’s books!
The cover is WOW!! It is my favorite kind of cover with both beautiful beasts on it!
I loved this book because she is a single mom who works her butt off for her family, and she wins all around in the end with her happily ever after. Her son is adorable, and he is included in the HEA! She is fierce when it comes to the people she cares about, and she won’t leave anyone behind. Derek is pretty awesome, and I love how automatically her family is now his. It is definitely a sexy quality in a man! He is just as fierce and protects what is his.
Zoe Chant is amazing at writing action packed HEAs that leave you so happy to have read them! I can’t wait to read the next one!
I highly recommend this book and any Zoe Chant book to shifter lovers who love a perfect blend of action, romance, and HEAs! Zoe nails the combination every time!
Especially given the fact that one of the culprits was an assassin and supernatural being. A sexy as sin bodyguard was assigned to protect her. What she felt for the man wasn't normal or was it!?
Derek Ruger, a Bear shifter and a bodyguard who was send undercover in a coffee shop to protect a beautiful, curvy single mother by the name of Gaby Diaz. Who just happened to be his mate.
He had a past with the assassin that was after Gaby. One that left him scarred emotionally and physically. But this time around Derek made sure that Ghost got what was coming to him.
BEARISTA is a standalone paranormal novel by Zoe Chant. What an amazing ride it has been. Zoe Chant kept me on the edge of my seat through out the entire book. Two thumbs up!
