Human Alice is definitely someone you want at your side. She'd make anyone a great mate. Will Bear Shifter Taggart claim his mate?
Alice and Taggart are at odds with her family and the Black Valley clan. Her family doesn't understand her motivation to side with the shifter. What drives her?
This is the first book in the “Pine Ridge Bear Shifters” series by Belinda Meyers. She did a great job weaving the plot and it makes sense. Overall, I found this novel to be an entertaining read.
The characters dialogues enhanced the story and the settings are realistic. I liked how the main characters relationship developed into a romantic relationship.
This book has all the romance, action, drama and suspense I love.
Pick up this book to start out a new PNR series that ends with an HEA. The next book is already out! Get ready for “Bear Mated” after finishing “Bear Run”.
ALICE: Raised to hate bear shifters, she's got enough problems, what with her idiot brother and father giving her guff all the time about her weight and general uselessness. Now, on her very first "hunting" trip -- hunting bear shifters, that is -- she realizes something big. Shifters aren't the demons her Pa and brother Bradley think they are. As soon as her Pa shoots one, wounding it, Alice leaps in to protect it from being killed. That's when it Shifts, changing from a bear to a tall, naked and very sexy man, and she realizes she might be in over her head. Oh, and great! He's got a bullet wound in the shoulder thanks to her Pa. Now she has to choose between her family and a man she's never met.
TAGGART: He's got BIG problems. Raised all his life in the deep woods by a radical bear shifter crew that hates the outside world, the Black Valley clan, he's decided enough is enough. He wants something different for his life. But as soon as he breaks loose of the crew and sets out for the bright lights of Pine Ridge, a small mountain town, he gets shot. Darn the luck! And who's the only one that sticks up for him but the curvy daughter of the sniper himself?
Now Alice and Taggart must go on the run not just from Pa and Bradley but from all the bear shifters of Black Valley, but how can they trust each other when each was raised to hate the other? Things get REALLY complicated when they realize that each has feelings for each other.
