Although Hard is the second book of The Bear Chronicles of Willow Creek series, it can be a stand alone read. For the first 20% of the story, the authors catches the reader up on what happened in book one so the reader doesn't get lost upon reading book two. Between books Rough and Hard, I liked and enjoyed Hard a lot more as I felt there was improvement in the writing and the characters' development. I also enjoyed the dual point of views from Eli and Liz. With that, I was able to better connect with their characters due to hearing their inner thoughts and feelings, thus making their sexual attraction (insta-lust) and union (insta-love) to one another more believable.
In addition, the plot and conflict were nicely executed and written. There was a nice balance of story with the sexy times. Overall, Eli and Liz were a good pairing and I found myself entertained with their story all the way through until the end.
So, I did enjoy it. It was a nice quick read, but I wish that there was more to it for us to get more invested in the characters. (including side characters like Eli's dad...)
There really wasn't much in the way of drama is this next in the series. Even Eli's father's drama was over quick. I can't say that I connected to Liza like I did with Amelia. Liza also came off as much older than her 18 years. I wanted a little more vulnerability from her.
I do look forward to Mase's story.
Eli, as you know, doesnt care wants outsiders in his town. But having such a strong bond with his cousin Ethan, the town's mayor, he has to let his animosity go or he will lose his friend so he decides to go with Ethan and Amelia to get her sister, Liza. But the unthinkable happens. He finds his mate, Liza. He fights the instant attraction but he truly has to final let his bitterness go because his bear doesnt care that she is human. Liza has no clue of what goes on in Willow Creek. Once she finds out what is going on, will she be able to forgive the secrets and the lies that was told to her?
This story had me from the get go, hell, from the very beginning with Rough. I love shifters, always have and always will. The whole dominate alpha tendencies just has a way of getting under my skin but in the most delicious of ways that I just cant help but gobble this story up. The storyline was a good one, with the added bonus of Eli's father strongly disagreeing. It created a good obstacle of wanting to know if Eli's dad would overcome his own animosity towards her. I liked Mason's added story to it too. He is the next in the series and it is sure to be a unique one with him being the unique were bear as he is blonde and has cat eyes, an oddity for their kind.
One thing that is for sure is that this duo can create a cool paranormal world, good versatile characters plus an added bonus of some really hot sex scenes that will leave you panting for more!

When we finished reading Rough we saw Liza and Eli meet. When we start Hard we get some back story for both Eli and Liza. We find out everything that made Eli and his father hate and not trust any human alive. We see what goes thru his head when his cousin brings up marrying a human. We also see how Liza thought about her sister marrying a guy she never met. We also saw how Liza dealt with her sister gone. And, with her new foster sister and handsy foster father.
Once Eli and Liza meet man it's one big cluster-f--k of emotions for them both. Eli's bear saw what he wanted and was fighting Eli every step of the way. Eli wouldn't fall in love with a human. But, he must have Liza.
Liza is just as confused as Eli. She can't stop looking at the huge sexy guy in front of her. He's angry and confusing as any man is. Well, a lot more. If that's even possible lol. But, she can't stay away. She's not like her sister. Liza has been with a guy before. But, she definitely hasn't been with one like Eli.
Man, are Liza and Eli are hot. Very hot! Eli realizes Liza is his mate and wants her with him. But, there are a few obstacles in the way. Liza refuses to jump right on in. She wants to take it slow. Eli agrees. But, his biggest 2 obstacles are Liza finding out what he is. Man, what a way to find out btw (eyes popped wide out!!) and his father.Eli knows once his father finds out it that Eli's mate is a human. He already knows it's not going to be a pretty sight.
I absolutely loved this book even more then I loved the first one. Paranormal has always been my all time favorite to read.Read more ›
