In this book Trent features Maria, the last of the unmated Shrews, and Eric, a made bear shifter, innkeeper and the Shrew agent Astrid's brother. Because of staffing shortages, Shrew and Company owner Dana partners them on a mission to rescue two kidnapped bear shifter children and to return the children to their mother. None of the Shrews know that Maria and Eric have been secret lovers for years, or that Eric has reached his limit with their clandestine arrangement and has called it quits. But no one else is available, so they go, traveling in a borrowed RV, trying to make sense of things with her and between them, while avoiding the bear shifters the corrupt bear alpha Gene will be sending to stop them.
I received an advanced copy in return for an honest review and have purchased a copy for my e-library. I highly recommend it.
Recently made werebear Eric Falk has been in love with private investigator and empath Maria Weisz for years, although how many years is ambiguous, and has finally decided that he needs more from their relationship than being used when her anger needs managing, so he tells her they aren't doing what she wants anymore. Maria is an emotional wreck and her nomadic upbringing hasn't really prepared her for life in the big wide world where she has to interact with people on a daily basis, but she's trying hard to fit in and be wanted by not allowing anyone but Eric to see what a mess she really is. Her way of dealing with all her insecurities and problems is to either completely hide everything behind a calm face, or to lash out at the only person she can, the only person who knows.... Eric.
Sent on a mission together to retrieve two kidnapped children, Eric forces Maria to start opening up about her life and a lot of surprises are in store for both of them as Eric's questions force Maria to start digging into a past she hasn't had the courage to investigate before - her own - and what she finds rocks her world, but she finally allows those who care about her to give their help and support as the revelations just keep coming.
I don't want to give any spoilers, and I absolutely loved this story, but I would have liked a little more information about the differences between born and made shifters, although the characters seemed to suffer from the same lack of knowledge so I could easily understand the confusion felt by Eric and others. Eric is a sweet character who only wants to be allowed to love, protect and care for Maria, and he eventually gets his wish as the real Maria is uncovered layer by layer throughout the book. This is a story of love, trust and redemption set amidst an on-going war between the two werebear factions of the rightful clan Alpha, Bryan, and the pretender, Gene, who uses fear to hold his position. It has gritty bits, lots of steamy bits, surprising revelations, some humour, good guys and bad guys, as well as the happily ever after we all expect for Eric and Maria and whilst their story is complete, the book does end on something of a cliff-hanger and I really can't wait to read the next one. There are some really interesting characters in this book and I've put the previous four books on my wishlist so that I can catch up on their stories too. I'm sure they'll be just as captivating as this one.
