September 13, 2016;
Forever Yours eBook; $1.99; 

The first in a wild shifter series from USA TODAY bestselling author Kathy Lyons.


Between singlehandedly running her bakery and raising her teenaged nephew, Becca Weitz thought she had a decent grip on "normal." Then her nephew vanishes, and life as she's known it changes forever. Local legends are true: bear shifters exist . . . and her nephew is part of their clan. As is Carl Carman, the sexy, larger-than-life man who has sworn to find her nephew-and the other young shifters who've gone missing.

As the leader of his clan, Carl is surrounded by enemies. He's learned the hard way that keeping a firm leash on his inner beast is key to survival, though his feelings for Becca test his legendary control. Then danger stalks too close, and Carl realizes he must unleash the raging, primal force within to protect everything he holds dear. But can Becca trust his grizzly side with her life-and her heart?


If you've been following me then you know how much I LOVE bears shifters. So when I got a chance to read and review this new series by Kathy Lyons and it was about bears I couldn't say no. I'm so happy I didn't. 

I love it!

The Bear Who Loved Me is the first book and you'll love the series name, Grizzlies Gone Wild. How cute is that? 

In The Bear Who Loved Me we have Becca & Carl. At first I wasn't sure if the name Carl is a very hero name, but I will admit it grew on me. But the end of the book I was looking for my own Carl. 

I really enjoyed how poor Becca handled learning about the fact that some people can change into bears. Shocked is a understatement, thinking she was loosing her mind might fit the description better. 

Of course when your nephew is missing and the only when that can help you is a man that turns into a grizzly you deal with what needs to be dealt with.   

This is a great start to a new and I'm hoping long lasting series. The story combines great writing, characters that intrigue you enough that you want to learn more about then a touch of humor and love! All the things you want in a great story. 

If you've read The Bear Who Loved Me or any other book by Kathy Lyons I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading.
