3.5 stars. I had been thinking about giving this one a try so the .99 special yesterday (kindle daily deal so only one day:( made buying this a slam dunk. This actually ended up being pretty cute for a story that starts off with a leading lady on the run from a 'hit' who ends up in a crash trying to avoid a tiger shifter and ending up in a shifter town. She's really a great character, determined and more than able to hold her own against rowdy shifters (she's doesn't know their secret) when she ...more

This book had a lot of potential and I loved the first part of the book. Unfortunately the second half of this book left a lot to be desired. I was looking forward to a fun, quirky book and the first half fulfilled that but the second half skipped all over the place. A ton of the book actually took place off page. I found myself with whip lash going what happened? Luc reveals to Ainsley his past off screen, all the suspense with Ainsley's killer happens off page. After the big fight, Ainsley and ...more
Ainsley McLeon has to shed her identity and quick, after hearing a plot for her untimely demise she ends up in a small town in Montana. Ainsley is used to the finer things in life, born with a silver spoon, she is shockingly thrilled with the ability to adapt to a lifestyle completely out of her element.

Instincts call out to bear shifter Luc, get Ainsley out of town and quick. Of course there must be a reason the debutante who thinks she is pulling off normalcy is in hiding. She makes Luc laugh,

I am going to admit it, I signed up to read and review this book purely because of the title! Yep, it is not just the cover that sells me, but when a name like this can seize me and inspire me to giggle like a schoolgirl with my friend, who also ended up reviewing for the tour, well… it’s a winner! Great job Entangled and Candace!

There was no way that Lions, Tigers, and Sexy Bears Oh My! wasn't going to be a super fun read with a title like that, right? Sadly, wrong! It actually started off really great. Ainsley has stumbled upon some secret family business and now someone is trying to kill her. She fled Beverly Hills with just the clothes on her back (and her Christian Louboutin heels) and wound up in the middle of nowhere, Montana, in a town full of shifters! Now she has the protection of Luc and may have found a reaso ...more

When heiress to the McLeon fortune, Ainsley McLeon realized someone is out to kill her, she made sure to get far away from Beverly Hills, California and fled for her life. No using credit cards or that massive bank account for Miss Ainsley. That would make it easy for the bad guys to track her down! So with just $50 in her pocket and a broken down truck, Ainsley walks into a bar and demands a job as a waitress.

Luc needs a waitress as his last one just went into labor. But the last thing he needs

I seen the name of this book and thought with a name like this I had to read it. After that I saw the cover and that was all that it took.

I was given this book in place of an honest review.

Ainsley is a woman that might seem like a pampered princess but don't let her looks fool you. She can take care of herself pretty good. She isn't one of those women that are skinny and has decided that food means more to her than a slim figure. When she uncovers some secrets that her family are keeping her li

I liked the characters of Ainsley and Luc, but after an interesting set-up this book was an utter disappointment to read because nothing happens in it. Whilst the characters smexy each other silly the plot is quietly taken care of off page without their input until suddenly it's a few weeks later and Luc's buddies in the FBI tell him that everything is okay now. It's as if the author decided that actually she couldn't really be bothered with a suspense story after all so she was going to make it ...more

Heiress Ainsley McLeon is fleeing gunmen who want her dead when she crashes her $500 truck into a tree in Montana. She was sure she saw a tiger in the truck bed, or, was she hallucinating. It doesn't take long for her to make a place for herself working in Luc's bar despite his surly nature and conviction that she shouldn't be there.

Luc is a bear shifter who lost his parents, wife and child in a flood while he was away working for the FBI. He is determined to protect his heart by never loving ag

Laugh out loud hilarious!

I feel in love with the character of Ainsley. Even though she practically owns half the world, she does dirty and hard work through the pain from the accident just to make money to fix her truck. While she is not your typical size 2 heiress, she is more like a size 12, she has spunk and charm that is irresistible. And the way she can handle a crowd of rowdy animals will have you in hysterics. You will fall in love with Ainsley as fast as the town did!

I could not and did
3.5 stars - Cute story! It's basically one we romance readers have all read before, but the part about the cartel killing off a mega-rich U.S. family was pretty far-fetched (at least to me).

Also, it was a little repetitive, and has some misspellings and outright incorrect use of words (such as 'vice' when it should have been 'vise').

This is a new author for me, so I might read more of her work.

This is the first time for me reading Candace Havens but it won't be the last. I loved this book and found it to be a great story, with wonderful character that left me wanting more. I found the humor to be just right and on more then one occasion couldn't help but laughing. From the very beginning the story grabs you, and pulls you in.

This was such a fun read. Once I picked it up, I couldn't stop until I had finished it. It was a real page turner filled with humor, suspense and sexy romance. So if you like a book filled with surprises, then this is one book you should read.

I have to start off my saying that I loved this book. 5/5 stars and if I could give more stars, I would because it was that good. Now let me tell you why....

So the story starts off with Ainsley crashing her truck and seeing a Tiger snooping around and at some points she thought he was laughing at her jokes. Ainsley is running away from home because someone is out to kill her because she knows some family secrets. She comes from a wealthy family so

Lions, Tigers, and Sexy Bears Oh My! was a bit of a throwback to the fun paranormal books I used to read a lot of a few years ago. They may still be out there but almost everything I find now is filled with over the top angst. This book was a nice change of pace.

Ainsley McLeon is an heiress on the run. She may have money but she doesn't know who she can trust now that she caught her brother and uncle in an embezzlement scheme and people are shooting at her. She runs off to the last place that an

First of all, I HAVE to thank a publisher at Entangled Covet for contacting me and allowing me to read and review this book. Paranormal romance isn't usually a genre I read. I have to say, I am so glad I said yes to reading this book. I'm a huge fan of Entangled's Bliss and Brazen lines. Their Covet line is like their Brazen line, but with some paranormal stuff thrown in.

Oh my gosh.. I love the characters of Ainsley a

Ainsley dropped everything after someone tried to kill her and headed for the least likely place anyone would look for her--Montana. After wrecking her POS truck and coming face-to-face with a tiger--what was a tiger doing loose in the middle of Montana anyway?--she ends up at the Cub Club in Clarksville, trying to convince a giant bear of man, Luc, to let her work at his bar.

3.5 Animalistic Stars

I enjoyed Candace Havens’ Lions, Tigers, and Sexy Bears Oh My! The title alone had me intrigued. This book has betrayal, vows to never fall in love again, the undeniable desire to break that vow, small town characteristics, stubborn women, and pig-headed men. Oh, and of course, how could I forget, humans that turn into animals.
The heiress, Ainsley McLeon, is on the run from her family after someone tried to kill her. She finds herself in the last place they’ll look; Montana.

Oh My! What an original and entertaining book. The cover is eye-catching and dares you to open up the book and take a peek inside, while the title itself makes you wonder with curiosity about the storyline. This is a fast-paced paranormal romance about an heiress, an area populated by animal shifters and love.

Wealthy and smart Ainsley McLeon is on the run because someone is trying to kill her. She recently discovered her family's two sets of financial books and overheard a conversation between h

I was able to finish Lions, Tigers, and Sexy Bears Oh My! by Candace Havens. I found this story really cute. I know that's not something you hear to often when you think of paranormal romance. Paranormal romances conjure up words like action-pack, hot, and danger. Not words like cute and sweet. However, there is a first for everything, right? Right.

What drew me to Lions, Tigers, and Sexy Bears Oh My! was the title itself. I mean come on the title alone sounds like a lot

This is a laugh out loud paranormal romance that will keep your interest until the very end. Two people who have suffered the loss of loved ones are not sure if what they feel for one another is enough to take a chance with their hearts. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and I’m looking forward to reading more by Candace Havens

This book started out with a bang, almost literally. Ainsley McLeon is so cold while on the run from her extended family who she thinks is trying to kill her, that she skids on an icy road and runs right into a tree. Of course, who can blame her for slamming on the brakes when she is sees a tiger standing in the middle of the road. The middle of nowhere Montana is not the place for fully grown tigers to just be wandering around. To make matters worse, the tiger jumps up into the back of her pick ...more
