Emily and Julia has renewed my interest in shifter books. This book had me drawn in, and the heat of the two characters as soon as they meet, instalove, and I loved it. Ethan is a himan/bear shifter, and his quiet little community is in danger of being taken over by humans, and his town is full of different types of shifters, and they are not happy about possible humans coming to their town. The only thing Ethan can come up with is to marry a human. Which brings us to Emelia. She has had a rough last few years, a fire destroyed her and her sisters lives, taking their parents from them. Living in foster care, and left with scars from rescuing her sister from the fire, she struggles with 2 jobs, and is determined to see her sister to college and a better life. When she sees the ad to be a bride, she fills out the application and just hopes she's not making a mistake. But when she sees Ethan, the desire and instant feelings are there. This book kept me drawn in and I couldn't put it down. I look forward to more of this series!!!!

After reading "Trapped with the Alpha," I couldn't wait to see what these two authors came up with next. Luckily, I didn't have to wait long. In "Rough" we meet a bear shifter who is also Mayor of his small town. To get some "hype" off his town he decides that they need to bring humans into the town. He signs up to be married with a mail order bride giving up his chance of finding his true mate. Amelia is a sweet heroine of the story who just can't get ahead in life. She is trying to take her of sister, all while supporting herself. She decides to sign up to be a mail order bride, so that she may be able to provide for her sister the way she wants too. While going through pictures of possible brides, Ethan, comes across Amelia and his bear recognizes her as his true mate. They marry and have some hardships adjusting to life, but get their HEA. I loved this book, and of course the steamy scenes. I can't wait for the next installment in this series. This was a quick read, and great for in between books.

What a start to what's going to be an awesome series. I love me a paranormal book, TV show and movie. But, I'm use to wolf shifters. Not a bear. What a great change.

Willow Creek is full of shifters. Bears, wolves, coyotes, snakes, eagles, You name it and they live in Willow Creek. It makes it where everyone is free to roam around however they want. Human or animal form. It's all OK. That is until a reporter comes to town and starts poking around.

Ethan is the mayor of Willow Creek. His family founded Willow Creek. Ethan would do anything to protect the people of Willow Creek. Ethan decides they need to come up with a plan to save Willow Creek. The articles are making the town sound like a cult. It's decided that they will start to take human spouses. Even if it means they're not properly mated.

Amelia and her sister have been in foster care since they lost their parents when their house went on fire. She has the burn marks from it. Her sister turns eighteen in 3 months. Amelia is working multiple jobs to save enough money to support them. But, she knows it's going to be close to impossible too. Amelia decides to do something crazy. She signs up to become a mail order bride with the note she will have her sister.

Against Ethan's bear telling him no no no. He goes on a male order bride site. Sees Amelia and he knows it must be her. Both Ethan and Amelia are scared, nervous and not sure what to expect. Ethan doesn't know how she's going to except him being a shifter. Amelia doesn't know what to expect when she gets off that plane. Well, to both their surprise it's instant love.

This was such a good book! I'm very mad it was so short though. There's still so much of these 2 that we could've gotten.

If I'm being totally honest I was first drawn to Rough based on the cover and title alone... And once I read the blurb? I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book! For the most part I really enjoyed this one but it wasn't exactly love like I was expecting it to be.

Ethan and Amelia are both in a situation where marriage can help them out... Ethan because he has to keep his shifter town safe from discovery and Amelia because she needs to have a place for her and her sister to live when her sister turns 18... And it's by luck alone that they both happen to find the mail order bride website that'll put them on the path to finding each other.

Of course they both have their reservations but it's lust at first sight and let me tell you... Ethan's growly "mine" as soon as he sees her?! Smoking hot!! And the bathroom scene seconds later? Even hotter! Personally, I need erotic shifter romance like I need my next breath and Rough did not disappoint in that regard but if you're looking for a book with more story and less sexy times you might wanna skip this one... Of course that's just my two cents!

I really liked Ethan and Amelia and being a huge fan of insta-love, Rough was right up my alley. My issue with this book comes from the writing alone. I had a hard time looking past a few things which made really getting into the story a little difficult... I think if I could have connected with the writing a little more or I could look past the grammar that was driving me crazy, Rough could have been a four star read for me.

That said, I will definitely be checking out the next book in this series as well as other books from these authors!
