Animal expert and TV personality Dominic Novak left more than a legacy for conservation and an instinctive love for animals behind when he was killed.

He left a son, Aiden, who craved the instinct with animals that his father had ... and a pupil, Mitchell, whose life changed after hearing Dominic lecture on conservation at college.

Dominic Novak was a brilliant scientist with a love of animals and a fierce conservationist who left behind a legacy and a huge pair of shoes for his young son to fill when he died at an early age. Aiden wanted nothing more than to be the man his father was and further the Novac heritage. Unfortunately, the media had put Dominic on a pedestal so high that Aiden soon had self-esteem issues. A bastard of a boyfriend in college took adva

Loved, loved, loved this. I loved Aiden and Mitchell. The only thing I can say is I wish it had been longer. I loved both MC's. They were adorable together.

I've probably said this before, but I'm a sucker for a sweet story, and this one made me very happy. There is a low level of angst as Aiden hides who he really is from his new lover, Mitchell. But it's all about caring for the characters and wanting them to find a way to be happy together.

Nice setting in the Canadian wilderness with lots of cuddling under sleeping bag covers! Really liked it.

If you enjoyed The Christmas Throwaway, you'll like this one too!

I grabbed this one the day it came out. It did not disappoint. I loved the wild setting of the Canadian bear preserve. The character of Aiden was brilliant, bashful and endearing. The romance developed nicely and the angst points didn't feel at all tacked on. It was a fairly quick read. I prefer my books between 100-200 pages these days and longer works now can feel stuffed with filler. None here. Nice work, R.J.!

Review written for MM Good Book Reviews

Aiden has spent most of his life in the public eye, but after the tragic death of his father he has become a mass of insecurities, now about to step into his father’s shoes, he wants a couple of weeks in anonymity at a bear sanctuary to have a hands on experience. Mitchell was inspired by Dominic Novak to work in the field of animal conservation, he usually teaches, but a last minute spot has opened up at Khut
This is a nice book, it just has something that keeps me wonder. How much are people entitled to their significant others' secret? Or more specifically, how fast? Mitchel behaves as if Aidan cheated on him, when all he does is hide his real identity for a while (Aidan realizes one day he has to tell it to Mitchel). Yeah, there is an issue of trust, etc., etc. Still, there is a strong reason why people hide certain part of themselves.

This question has been lingered for a while since I started rea

Aiden wants to avoid drama and just be 'normal' so he hides his name while his real personality shines out. Mitchell falls fast and hard. But when trouble comes and things are revealed will Mitchell has to decide what matters most Aiden's real name or who Aiden really is on the inside. It is a great story of the balance of being who you are and protecting yourself from potentially being used.
Nice, enjoyable, rather predictable, quick and easy read. Perfect if you are in need of something light in between bouts of heavier stuff. The writing style seemed a bit unrefined at times, but it flowed easily and was appropriate for the general setting. Nothing very memorable, but it's not always the great and memorable that you seek, so three content stars from my side.

I loved this, a totally different book to anything I've read from RJ for ages. Spirit Bear is Aiden's story, his journey to accepting who he is and what his future could be if he can be brave enough to clasp it. I loved every page.

4.5* Loved it! Aiden and Mitchell were worth the wait.

Spirit Bear features two attractive and likable heroes in an exotic location – a wild bear preserve located deep in the cool, rainy forests of western Canada. The setting is so vividly described that you can see the old growth forest stretching for miles around you and feel the icy raindrops creeping into your boots and numbing your feet. Meanwhile, the day-to-day duties of two park rangers are convincingly shown from all-day hikes across their assigned territory to tree-climbing to check survei ...more

Quick and pleasurable read. No surprises, just a simple love story set in a beautiful place.

Oh if only all people felt as passionate about animals as the characters in this story.

Just 3,5 stars from me.
There are books from RJ Scott I loved a lot more.
But it was a good read nevertheless and I enjoyed it.

The only real complaint I have is about the length of this book...I want more! I wasn't finished with these hot, sexy guys.
