I also liked the age difference between Russell and Riley. The author has dared to step away from the expected age-stereotype and acknowledge the fact that older men and younger women do fall in love with each other. I think Cary Grant's last wife was 47 years his junior, and I know a young woman who left her young husband for a man in his sixties. So Russell and Riley's relationship is an example of love doing what it does best: bringing lovers together. Because of the influence of his shifter-side,. Russell looks 40, but is actually sixty-five while Riley is 24.Given all she had been through and another particular aspect of her life, I could easily see her falling for an older man--and what a wonderful man he is. Plus I like the fact that Russell isn't three- or four- or a thousand-years old and looking like he's thirty.
The first half of the book is in his POV and the last half is in hers. The sex scenes are explicit. Tension-wise, the second half is definitely the stronger part of the book, but I'm glad to have experienced the entire story.
Russell is a polar bear shifter hybrid and bush pilot who will ferry Riley between schools. It doesn't take long for him to recognize her as his mate, but she is human, young and innocent. Riley is drawn to the white haired Russell, but thinks he may be too old for her. Then they are caught in a blizzard and Russell, a dream walker, learns why she shelters inside an igloo in her dreams. It's because her mentally unbalanced brother stalks her in her dreams and will be coming for her in the waking world, just as soon as he finds her
I received a copy of this book for a honest review....
The story takes place in Alaska, which is a place I’ve always wanted to visit, S that gave this tale a special appeal. Russell is a Native American who also happens to be a shapeshifting polar bear. When Russ meets Riley, the new kindergartner teacher, it’s love at first sight, or scent for him. Has he finally found his lifetime mate? Will she accept him, and his polar bear? And what about her secret past? Will she be able to overcome her previous abuser?
I really enjoyed the metaphysical elements of this story. I could tell Simone did a lot of research regarding dream walking, spiritual bonds, and herbalism. There is some action, especially toward the end, but mainly it’s a romance story, so the pace is slower as Russell and Riley do their get-to-know-each-other dance. Riley is hesitant about starting a relationship as Russ is much older than her, plus she has a dark past she’s escaping from.
I really liked Russ’ character, and I wouldn’t mind meeting a person like him myself. On the other hand, I had trouble with Riley. Most of the first half of the book is from Russ’ POV, so we’re not really introduced to Riley’s feelings or motivations other than through dialogue or dream sharing. Even knowing the abusive life she had as a child, I felt she was too weak. I think Simone tried explaining some of that by the psychic bond that her half-brother had over her, but still, she never balked at finding out about Russ. She just calmly accepted everything that happened between them, her step-brother, and Russ’ mixed family. For me, she had no heart and I found her unrelatable.
All-in-all, I did enjoy the adventure in the great state of Alaska, but I was also disappointed as I was really looking forward to an awesome love story that just wasn’t there. This book would be perfect for readers who love romantic shapeshifter stories. I give it 4 feathers.
