"Grizzly Promise" is a fantastic paranormal romance with real world issues (rape). It is done with compassion and there are not easy fixes. For that I love it. The characters are perfect. At some points I almost felt as if Wyatt was too perfect. His constant desire to put Paige first even when it went against her wishes at times felt overdone. Paige was awesome. She recognized her issues and had a plan, though the plan had a few holes in it. I honestly enjoyed this story. I was leery about reading it because it is the fourth book in a series but I worried about nothing. This story definitely can be read without having read the previous books. However, I really would like to read the other books in this series as this one was so good.
Paige was raped at 14 and the only person who knows is her best friend, Gavin. Not only does Gavin know Paige was raped but he also learned that there were shifters. Humans aren’t suppose to know that. As they grew up, the two best friends posed as a couple to hide secrets they don’t want to share. Wyatt was visiting his sister when Paige dropped by. He’s shocked. Paige is his mate but Paige wants nothing to do with him. What is going on? And, why does Paige have a human boy friend?
A Werebear Shifter Romance
When grizzly shifter Wyatt Arthur arrives in Calgary, Alberta, for a business trip, he finds himself blindsided by the shy, skittish woman he is certain will be his mate. In a peculiar turn of events, she already has a boyfriend—a man Wyatt is confident is not interested in women. With no other options, he returns home, hoping his mate will eventually come to her senses and give him a chance.
After suffering a traumatizing experience as a teenager, Paige Osborn doesn’t date. Ever. In fact, she keeps men at bay by pretending to be in a committed relationship with her human best friend, Gavin Wright. There’s just one problem. Gavin is gay.
Gavin has never been comfortable keeping Paige’s secret from her family, but they have an arrangement. She keeps his sexual preferences confidential, and he keeps her sexual assault from the world.
What Paige doesn’t factor into her life is the possibility that someone might one day cross her path who causes her to waver on her conviction never to bind to anyone, human or shifter.
In a twist of Fate—or perhaps Fate knows exactly what She’s doing—Paige finds herself moving to Wyatt’s hometown of Silvertip, Alberta, to do research for the summer.
Silvertip is not big enough to hide from anyone, and Paige will be forced to face her past and her future. Now she just needs to figure out how to reconcile the two and find the strength to let Wyatt into her heart.
