Review: Roaring Up the Wrong Tree by Celia Kyle

Roaring Up the Wrong Tree
Grayslake #3
Celia Kyle

What should Trista do when faced with a hunky werebear who can’t decide if he wants to kill her or screw her? 

Half-hyena, Trista has spent years rotating between Grayslake, Redby, and Boyne Falls. When the Grayslake Itan—the local clan’s werebear leader—orders a purge of all hyenas, she finds herself fighting to hold onto the hand-to-mouth life she’s created. Her carefully built existence is threatened further when a gorgeous werebear strides into her life and demands not just her heart, but her very soul. She’ll think about it, but not until her shift ends at seven. 

Keen seems like a happy-go-lucky, sex-and-sin werebear, but that’s nowhere near the truth. In reality, his inner-animal wants to go on a bloody rampage and kill half of Grayslake—just because it can. After that, it wants to claim the seductive, curvaceous half-hyena female Keen can’t get out of his head. The animal doesn’t care that most bears wouldn’t mind a little hyena tartare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Nope, it peers at her through Keen’s human eyes and has one thought: mate. 

When push comes to shove, Keen has to decide if he would rather have the family he was born with, or Trista—the woman who makes him realize that true happiness comes in a lush, hyena-shaped package.

I must admit I love this whole series but so far Roaring Up the Wrong Tree is my favorite of the Grayslake series. I know, I say that only until I read Love At First Roar. This story broke my heart a little. I felt so bad for Trista. She was so alone and sad missing her mom. You just wanted things to be better for her and with Keen they were. Of course Keen had his own issues, what with his family (brothers) not believing in him, he had to fight for everything. So much happens in Roaring Up the Wrong Tree that you won't want to put the book down. Like I mentioned, each book in the series gets better and better. You won't be able to help yourself when you start reading this series you won't be able to stop. It's full of humor, love and by the end family support. Happy reading!   


  1. I enjoyed the first story. I will have to add the next two to my buy list. There's nothing like a shifter.

    1. There is four books in total. I think you'll enjoy them all.

  2. I loved the first book in this series, really need to read the others soon.

    1. You do. They are so good. I'm moving on to her other series next!

  3. Oh I'm gonna have to try these. I love werebears!
