It's a short and steamy read about two shifters.

Logan, 32, was a hybrid shifter. He's half wolf and half bear. Honey, 25, was a badger shifter.

He was a SEAL and decided to come home and settle down. He went to the real estate office because he bought a property and she was there, working as a realtor. They knew right away that they're mates.

Honey has always been in control of her life and relationship until she met Logan. He was a dominant man, an alpha. She's a strong woman but still know whe
**3.5 because it's so short.**

Super short, smutty mate story. I actually wanted more of these two. He's a hybrid wolf-bear and she's a badger named Honey. Epilogue was a year later but I would have liked to have seen babies.
Logan is half bear, half wolf and pure Alpha. When he arrives in Sugar Crest, Alaska to make a quiet life for himself he doesn't expect to meet his mate. Honey is a honey badger shifter who is used to being in control, but her mate is not the one who will be submitting, it is her.

Quick read. Overall good story, Logan is demanding and Honey could have easily rejected the mating is pushing all of her natural instincts aside and allowing Logan to mate with her. I would have liked the story a bit

I might have given this a higher rating but there's no story, unless you count a shifter showing up where the heroine works taking her home and mating her That's about it.

I have to say my first thought when I read the blurb on this book was 'What the Hell' a bear/wolf shifter and a badger shifter....really!
Logan Teairry is back in town and as a bear/wolf shifter he's unusual and huge, he's just finished with the Navy Seals and he's come back home to settle down, he's bought a place up out of the way since he wants his solitude but that's about to change once he meets Honey the badger shifter who's his mate.
Now I do like Jenika's books you're always guaranteed a h

I liked both Logan and Honey. I liked that they had chemistry; I just wished to see more of them. I liked Logan’s attitude and his determination to get his mate. Some of the scenes in this book are panty melting hot.
Alpha knows best is a fast paced shifter romance. Although it wasn’t my favourite book of Jenika’s, I enjoyed it.

Half bear, half wolf shifter Logan knows Honey is his mate instantly. Despite being feared for his hybrid status, he is determined to make Honey his. Strong and

Mmmmmmmm........ how do I review this one?.

Well.......... the following words - Dominant came up more than 8 times, the word Alpha came up about 14 times, the word submit/submission about 18 times, in an extremely short story.

It just seemed like we where just bombarded with these words alone in the story. I think we got it that Logan was Alpha and Dominant and that Honey will Submit to him but to seriously repeat this over and over was way OTT.

Worthless reading, don't waste your time move on to

Great sex, epilogue kind of ruined it for me with the shifting. I think to pull off shifting in an erotic shifter book it should be done somewhere closer to the start, maybe before sexy times happens. Putting it at the end and just for a run felt awkward and like it was thrown in to show they're definitely shifters. It wasn't necessary to me and felt last minute. ...more

The Bearly Controlled Alpha by Jenika Snow is a hot steamy intense read. I loved the extremely alpha character of Logan Teairry. He is big, controlling and wow so very hot. He is a mix shifter, half wolf , half bear all alpha. He certainly knows what he wants and is willing to go after it.
Honey, is a badger shifter, they are known for their stubborn nature. Well she has met her match in Logan. He knows how to keep the little badger under his control. I really liked how well matched these two ch

The Bearly Controlled Alpha by Jenika Snow is the first in All Romance Books Alpha series. What was most intriguing about this book was that the alpha was a hybrid wolf / bear shifter. While I am having a difficult time picturing this partially shifted animal as described in the book, I find this an interesting combination. What was even more interesting was the mating of this hybrid to a badger, named Honey. This was a cute story and great start to this grouping of books.

If you want a quick steamy, dirty read then this is for you! Logan got the dirty talking game down. He is definitely one of the best dirty talker I ever had the pleasure of meeting. And I like that we get to see small moments of his gentless towards Honey. He's an OTT alpha male but he definitely adores Honey. The sex is 10 stars good! They get down and dirty from the get go! ...more

This was fun and steamy read about two strong characters that first meet and make it work ( Logan and Honey).

I like that even though Honey is a strong independent honey-badger, I admire that chooses to be Logan's mate. I love the smuttiness but I love the care they have for one another and that Logan explains what it would mean to be his mate.

Another great hit in my book. Logan is as alpha male as they come when he meets Honey he unleashes this in full force. I love the dirty talking hybrid so much. The story was full of hotness. A great read

I've read other books by this author. This one was disappointing.
There was a barely there storyline.
If it was categorized as erotica. I missed it!
Shaky proofreading. Just not good in my opinion

I usually enjoy stories by Jenika Snow, but I was disappointed with this one. There was very little story, a lot of sex, and that was about it. I like a story with the sex added, not that being the main topic.

Enjoyed!! Storyline is short, fast paced, hot and centers around meeting one's mate and claiming that mate. Logan is a wolf/bear shifter and Honey is a badger shifter with instant chemistry being they are fated mates. Lovable characters. ...more
