What did I like?
I love when the MC are an unlikely couple. Human males and Shifter females in a relationship tend to upset the apple cart in most shifter societies. A big no-no, which is something I don't get when there are so many Shifter Male/Human Female pairings. In this story we learn a little more about bear culture and open up the possibility of figuring out some of the questions left over from Laid Bear. Despite the way he was leading his life, it was sad to see Yoren die, and I hope they catch that murdering, crazy scientist. I'm glad that Chet got to see a HEA bear-human birthing. Such a tragedy what happened to him and his mate. I'm also glad that Charlotte got her head out of her behind and made up with Bethany. The dead mate's voice in her head made my heart sigh. It's difficult to move on when you've lost someone you love and to have that kind of encouragement is uplifting and comforting.
What I didn't like?
Really couldn't think of a thing.
Would I recommend this book?
Absolutely, if you have read Laid Bear, this is a must buy. I would encourage you to read Laid Bear before you read Laid Bear 2, though the main couple is different there are a lot of return characters and events are continuing from the previous book.
There are two love stories intertwined in this past paced story filled with the roller coaster of action and emotions that author Marina Maddix writes so very well.
The antagonist is really not a nice guy and the town is interspersed with prejudice which just makes for more tension and cheerleading (on the readers part) for love to prevail over selfishness and greed.
I wish that Veronica and Jess had more interaction and page time. Their story was truly unique and special with her situation and the twins to add more romance and comic relief. I have my fingers crossed that we will get to know more in future installments of the series.
In summary, I look forward to the next book and hope that it will arrive at Amazon and other ebook retailers in the very near future.
I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This was a good story. I liked Veronica and Jess but wished there was more to their story. This addition to the series is longer than the first but it contains a lot of Max and Bethany in it (as a continuation of their story from book #1 [book:Laid Bear|18171112]) so only part of it is about Veronica and Jess.
Veronica is a were-bear and the mother of twin cubs that are 6 years old. Her mate died around the same time her cubs were born and it hasn't been until recently that she's considered getting involved with someone new. She signed on to an online dating service to get used to flirting again but didn't expect to meet anyone. Much to her surprise she met Jesse who is human but she really liked. They've been in touch for 6 months and she's fallen for him big time. Now if she can just get the courage to meet with him...
Jess is a marine biologist but took a summer job in Alaska to be close to Veronica. He fell for her through their conversations online and took a job that he was way overqualified for in order to be close to her and hopefully have a chance to meet her. He's frustrated with her reluctance when he suggests meeting but is willing to be patient if it gives him a chance with her.
Max is sent to Kodiak, Alaska by the council to attempt to set up a mating for a local were-bear. Bethany wants to go but Max tells her it's too dangerous. They have a fight before Max leaves and so Bethany decides to go after him to make up. The problem with this is that the area they're going to is heavy with were's that tend to violently oppose a were with a human. Max told Bethany about the danger but she goes anyways and this puts Max in a bind as he tries to do what he needs to while keeping her safe. Bethany got an email looking for help with were/human relations from Veronica and is determined to stay in the area to try to help Veronica (regardless of the danger). All in all it seemed a bit TSTL for me to appreciate Bethany's actions. She does end up helping a bit but overall her presence doesn't really help the situation and causes Max major stress and issues. Veronica and Jesse meet and this go well between them and quickly get hot and heavy. Unfortunately, Jess finds out about Veronica's shifting without warning and he takes it badly...like really badly. He freaks and ends things with her and decides to leave the area. Veronica is crushed and almost makes a big mistake in her sadness. There's some major drama as the bad were's try to make trouble. Max has to try to do his job but still save Bethany and Veronica and Jesse have their own issues to deal with. Things end up good for both couples (but not until pretty much the end of the book) and Veronica and Jess are set to start their HEA.
This was a good story but I didn't like it as well as the first book. I liked Jess and was a bit frustrated by his freakout over the were issue but, I can't really blame Jess for freaking a bit and he did come around. Veronica was cool and overall I didn't have an issue with her actions. I think my main frustration was that things seemed kind of rushed even though this book is longer than the first one. I wish the story had given some idea of what Veronica and Jess will do from here because I'm not sure if staying in Veronica's hometown would be safe for them... I'm unsure if I'll read more of this series in the future. I may but it's not a guarantee.
