All Roar and No Bite

Grayslake, #2

Lauren Evans may be a reticent in personality, but when it comes to protecting those she loves, get out of the way. When her best friend is stuck in an abusive relationship Lauren is more than ready to step up and help her get out. Bears and wolves may have claws, but Lauren feels her trusty baseball bat is a great equalizer and she is not afraid to use it.

Van Abrams is an enforcer for his were-bear den. He has no use for humans and is not thrilled to find out that his mate is one, even if he is drooling over her sexy and curvy body. Yet when danger gets too close to her Van is forced to admit that he wants her for his own and sets out to protect her from harm, but is he too late?

Celia Kyle is the author of the Graylake Pack books and that alone should tell you that this is a book well worth your time in reading it. If you have read her Ridgeville Pack you have realized she has a talent for spinning a story that is well developed with intriguing characters and a setting so descriptive that you will imagine you have been there. If you have not read Celia Kyle before…you need to. She will quickly become one of your favorites.

"All Bear and No Bite" is the second book in the Graylake Pack series, but it can be read as a standalone since there is enough information on book one to explain any cross-over. On the other hand I have never been one to settle for just enough and I like to go all out. If you are like myself, I suggest you read "No Ifs, Ands, or Bears About It" to get the full story and learn more about the den and their interactions with the wolf pack and other were beings.

I absolutely adored this book.


Book Blurb for All Roar and No Bite

Who needs claws when you’ve got a baseball bat? Lauren Evans sure as heck doesn’t.

Human Lauren has a protective streak a mile wide and one immediate goal in life—get her best friend out of an abusive household. If that involves a little bat-based redecorating, so be it. Unfortunately—or fortunately—a certain sexy-as-hell cop breaks up the fight before she has a chance to really get going. Grayslake police officer Van Abrams is too hot for his own good, and his handcuffs make all those wonderful places tingle. Too bad he, you know, arrested her and stuff. But then he becomes overbearing, demanding, and commanding. Suddenly Lauren finds herself in his arms, in his bed, and mated to his werebear butt. What’s up with that?

Werebear Enforcer Van Abrams doesn’t want anything to do with humans. He’s got reasons, and they’re damn good ones. He doesn’t need to explain himself to anyone, especially the curvaceous, luscious, gorgeous, human Lauren. Then, his bear decides Lauren is his mate and Van’s anti-human feelings abandon him. He still hasn’t figured out if that’s a good thing. Of course, when danger rolls in from Boyne Falls and joins with a powerful prick from Grayslake, Van realizes that, human or not, Lauren is his.

Van hopes he can kill their enemies and still make it home for dinner.

Warning: This book contains bad guys (more than one) being bad to good girls (two if you’re counting), and one group of humans who sorta end up… dead. Unfortunately, all that comes with a lot of blood, tears, and balls of fur. In this one, boy bears really do drool and human girls rule (and kick ass). We also learn that you can never have enough baseball bats, brake fluid, or fire pokers. Just sayin’.
