Lumberjack Werebear by T.S. Joyce
Series: Saw Bears #1
Genres: Paranormal Romance
Painter, Brooke Belle, is running from her past and hoping that a few weeks in a quaint country cabin will bring her artistic muse back from the brink. But when she lands smack dab in the middle of Asheland Mobile Park, she’s sure there’s been a mistake. Not only has her mentor rented her a dilapidated mobile home in the middle of nowhere, but the trailer park is filled with big, burly, growly, flirty, sexy-as-hell lumberjacks. And one in particular is making her think that maybe she’s landed right where she needs to be.
Tagan James has a lot on his shoulders. As second in a woodcutting crew of bear shifters, he’s got all he can handle keeping his people from tearing each other apart on the job site. But when the beautiful, and terribly human, Brooke Belle lands on his doorstep, all honest and vulnerable and pulling at his animal’s protective instincts, he has to decide whether to boot her out of his park to protect his heart, or take a risk and save her muse.
Every bear shifter knows finding a mate can destroy a dominant like him. But as Brooke shows Tagan just how strong she can be, he’s second guessing everything—including his vow to never fall for a woman.
Content Warning: explicit love scenes, naughty language, and piles of sexy shifter secrets. Adult only bear shifter romance.
I will say that although Lumberjack Werebear introduces us to the Ashe Crew it is my least favorite of the series. Not that it is not a great book in any way it is just that some of the other guys are my favorites. It is really just a personal preference thing. I love Brooke’s opinion when she first see the dilapidated mobile home she will be staying in. She thinks she is heading to a spa! I also love the connection to the bears that her mentor has. Brooke first meets Connor who reminded me a bit of a creepy old man! You know the kind that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up.
Tagan is the second in command and set on staying single. However the sparks fly when he meets Brooke and he knows that she is his mate but he’s a bear and she’s human. Not to mention that she is working through her mugging. However when Connor sets his sights on Brooke things turn a bit ugly and Tagan does the only thing he can to protect Brooke. My heart broke for him when he cried after what happened because she didn’t want it.
