Bear Protection first off, has one gorgeous cover! I mean, just looking at it had me instantly interested in reading it. The blurb was even better. It had EVERYTHING: Sexy shifters, danger, sizzling romance, the PERFECT wording to really capture a readers attention. Now the story was freaking PHENOMENAL! I adored and I mean ADORED Rick. He is definitely one of the top caring and protective and SWEETEST characters so far in 2016! Sophie is a smart, curvy, and surprisingly brave. Bear Protection had it ALL! Steamy and sweet romance, danger, and plenty of Shifters! It was a total delight. I am now following Marlie Monroe on Amazon, because she knows how to write a REALLY good paranormal romance.
This story was nearly impossible to put down. Everything came together beautifully and was written just right. The characters are fantastic together, and Pleasant Valley is a place I sure the heck would want to visit (if it were real), that is for sure! This first book by Marlie Monroe easily gets a SHINNING FIVE SHOOTING STARS! I am SO glad I read this book and am hoping for the next one REAL SOON! An absolute MUST read.
