Bearliest Catch by Bianca D'Arc
Series: Grizzly Cove #6
Genres: Paranormal Romance
A woman of mystery…
Jetty is a huntress of the deep ocean who finds herself fascinated by a man—a shifter—who sets anchor in her realm day after day. She is obliged to watch him, not fully understanding the fascination the handsome stranger compels within her battered heart.
A man with hidden scars…
Recovery from major injury isn’t easy. While Drew’s physical problems have been addressed and cured, the emotional scars from his battlefield catastrophe are harder to heal. He seeks the solace of the ocean even more than the welcome company of his former military comrades in the town of Grizzly Cove. When they give him a mission to make contact with an elusive mermaid, he’s more than willing to give it a try.
A people in danger…
Jetty and Drew will have to work together if they are to bring the mer people into the protection of the cove. They will both face the terror of the deep. Will they be strong enough to overcome its evil? And will their love be strong enough to overcome the injuries of the past that have left them both slightly broken in different ways?
I really enjoy this series and while it deals with some heavy supernaturals at times it tends to be a bit more refreshing. Drew is one of the founding members of Grizzly Cove and while bears are typically loners these are doing well living around others. They are working towards building a thriving community. On his last assignment Drew was injured and still has fully recovered mentally yet. It is this reason that he spends so much time out on his boat fishing. It brings him a sense of peace and calm.
He has been told by Grace, a mermaid we met int he last book, to be on the lookout for Jetty, another mermaid who loves to watch Drew while he is out on the water. Of course Drew and Jetty are mates and the story is about them being together as well as working together with the other shifters, witches,and mer-people to defend the evil that is trying to overtake Grizzly Cove. I have to say that Drew so far has been one of my favorite bears! He is just awesome.
As I said I love this series and I honestly think it is because Bianca D’Arc has done such an amazing job of creating not only Grizzly Cove but the characters. Even the evil that is brewing you can feel as you read the words. She works hard to ensure that each character is well developed and even though the stories are short I in no way felt as though I was cheated out of any part of the story.
