A bear walked into a bar—and found a family.
The Urso of Ballantine Mountain intended to run a ragtag bunch of shifters out of his territory. Instead, Sawyer Ballantine found his mate. Once the lone bear on the mountain, now Sawyer shares his life and bed with Dillon, who’s still learning how to be a proper bear. Sawyer tells the stories of the First Bears, from whom all other bear shifters descended, but how did two male bears become the fathers of many?
The varied shifters of Ballantine Mountain coexist peacefully—Sawyer manages them with an iron paw. Yet danger lurks. The wolves have plans of their own, and they don’t include taking orders from bears.
Two bears, seven wolves, no contest.
If Dillon didn’t heave every time he smells bacon.
Two Bears and a Baby follows on from A Bear Walks Into a Bar but can be read as a standalone.
This short novel contains randy bears, rogue wolves, a bitey fox shifter, and a certain amount of morning sickness.
This is the sequel to A Bear Walks into a Bar. Where do I begin? Okay, this is definitely an odd book. The writing was really good, no problems at all on that front, but the characters and events are really odd but not in a bad way.
In the first book, it was all aggression, mild violence and sex. You didn’t know which way to go with the characters: are they friends or foes? I had no idea if they wanted to kill or have sex or eat each other. This book mellowed out a bit but the odd ball quirkiness was still there.
Sawyer’s character vexed me at times. His mood waffled and shifted so much for me that I didn’t know whether to love him or hate him. I liked Dillion’s character, I think his character played off and was paired well with Sawyer. I can definitely tell you that this isn’t your average Mpreg story. I liked the characters and story a lot. The quirky, odd ball quality of it is intriguing. I would liked for it to have been a bit longer but thinking but it was still a nice read without it.
In all, this book turned out rather nicely. The characters are likable, quirky and interesting and the plot and storyline was really well done.
