It had the potential to be really good but a few things prevented it.
It was entertaining enough but the story and plot lacked big time! The best thing about this novella was the narrator. Off to listen to the next one , I hope that turns out better than this one!
Wow, that is one ugly cover. sheesh.
Anyways, Aiden finds his love Heidi when he least wanted to. Heidi isn't too thrilled either seeing as how he's a bear and she's a wolf. Seems that not only are there racists like the Sons of Domnall (the skinheads dedicated to the genocide of shifters), but there are prejudices between shifters themselves.
Both Aiden and Heidi work for the Alliance, a group of shifters created to oppose the SofD.
Heidi is the new recruit for the Alliance and she kicks ass! Ai

This was a quick read. It's what happens when two stubborn people mate. Heidi and Aidan's instant chemistry was very strong. I do like that there is another story going on within the series. It makes it a little more intriguing. If you like hot wearbears then you are sure to love this. I received this book from IndieSage PR in exchange for an honest review.

This was a cute read with danger, a little mystery, love story that is a little different but blends very well. The characters were interesting with cross breeding and how they deal with it. We learn more about Aidan and what happened to his parents. Here is where The Sons of Domnall, come into the story they are a secret society of humans sworn to destroy all shapeshifters.

Heidi is a very sweet wonderful character that won’t back down from a fight. When she and Aidan first me sparks fly. The pu

We met Aidan in the first book which focused on his brother's romance, and here we not only see Aidan meet his true mate but we also get fully immersed in the mystery and suspense of the criminal threat against the shifters in Scotland. Heidi is completely caught off-guard by her attraction to Aidan and isn't sure what to do about the unusual and possibly taboo nature of their true mate pairing. Aidan is content to let her figure things out in her own time while he pursues the truth behind his p ...more

Heidi is a werewolf who is going undercover into the group that is out to destroy all weres. This book is a continuation of the first book. The brother of the werebear is the fated mate but also the partner of the werewolf facing danger by being forced to join the group out to kill them. Will Aiden be able to save his partner/mate without getting them both killed and revealing what they really are?

Intriguing story of werefolk working together to unmask and disarm a group of skinheads dedicated to eliminating shifters. All this is complicated for a long term member who discovers that he has been fated to be mated to the newest member and that she is a werewolf and he is a werebear. Good story and interesting characters.
Patrick Blackthorne is excellent as Aiden's narrator.

Suspicions confirmed...these weren't meant to be shorts. Decent couple, ok romance, solid writing but it had too much going on to make it this short. If you're going to write something this short you need all the space for the romance and the drama needs to be at the minimum. especially annoying was the heroines reference to what she'd learned about hero "in the time she'd known him" they literally only spent one day together!
tldr: not bad but not developed enough to realize it's potential

Judging a Book by it's Cover:
Staying with the same great colors from book 1, an equally adorable bear sits in the background while the male model is in front with a bare torso and tattoos.
Looking Deeper:
Third person POV. Novella > under 100 pages. Can stand alone, but it would be better to read in order.

She knew it was a great honor, but always thought one of the young males would've been chosen instead of her. *Who could be more reliable than Heidi herself?

Still enjoying the narrator....he does a good job with the characters. This was the follow up to Derek, as a story for his brother Aiden. I loved that again the author faced the idea of "cross breeding" in that Fate has given this brother a wolf as his mate. It's a short book but long enough to keep you happy. Sexy without being smutty, suspenseful and mysterious while still being a romance. That mystery at the end of the epilogue has me dying to tune into the third installment to learn more abo ...more

This book didn’t work as well for me as the first one. I don’t know if it’s because Aiden and I didn’t click, or because I didn’t click with Heidi or if it was because I didn’t feel the connection between Aiden and Heidi…maybe all of the above?

I enjoyed the suspense part of the story, but felt like the beginning dragged a little for me. But at the same time, I wish there had been more time together for Aiden and Heidi. Even though Derek and Clarice didn’t spend a lot of time together, they were

Growing up to believe bears are the enemy of wolves, of course Heidi's mate would be a bear. She leaves behind her family and their closed off community and closed minded beliefs about other shifters when she is sent to work for the Alliance. In addition to finding her mate, Heidi also finds that The Sons of Domnall are an enemy not to be taken lightly.

Heidi Blackwood was a werewolf. She was chosen by her father who was alpha to join the Alliance. She could not refuse. What Heidi was not expecting was to come face to face with her fate mate.

Aidan McMilla was a bear shifter. He was told he was getting ready to take on a new partner in the Alliance. He was not expecting for that someone to be his fated mate. He knew he must be patient and let her come to him.

This is a great story. It runs at the same time as the first book. So the author shows you Aidans story as it begins with the meeting of his mate. Aiden is part of a team of shifters, the alliance, who are tracking down humans who are intent on eliminating All shifters. There is an truce between the wolf packs and the bear clans. They do not fully trust one another. Heidi was sent to the alliance as a representative form the wolves.Imagine her surpris

But one look and she has turned his world upside down. I was on the edge of my seat, hoping it wasnt going to blow up in their face, hoping they could....

This was a sweet story with a light tone that made it easy to read about trying to infiltrate a supremicist group that wants to kill all shifters. Aidan, Derek's brother, finds his mate and information about his parents' deaths. The author has a tendency to tell what characters are thinking and feeling, and at times I felt like the book was being narrated, like someone telling a campfire tale. However, that doesn't bother me much and the short length and light tone were just what I was looking f ...more

I loved it as well.
It was a few pages longer, but was a little more active throughout the book than the first one.
I love how it also challenged the society, their rules about mating. Whereas the first one was werebaear-human, this on was werebear-werewolf which was also frowned upon.
I loved how the author portraied the inner workings of the characters, in such a short book.
Plus, I loved Jamie as well. It was a little predictable, but that might just be for me because I tend to do that.
