Start your review of A Forbidden Love (Scottish Werebear, #3)
Alison the human and Jamie the lovable bear.
Again with the ugly cover art!
So Alison and Jamie are not being honest. Alison is pretending to help the Alliance but is actually the daughter of a Sons of Domnall leader. In fact, she and Jamie share a history and it ain't pretty.
Yet despite the set up for an angst-fest, the story stays low key. Alison grew up being indocrinated about the evils of shifters. Jamie lives with the guilt of something from his childhood that he can never change.

This book is definitely my favorite of the first three books. This is what I wanted in the other 2…Jamie and Alison actually spent time together and you could feel an immediate connection between them. It didn’t hurt that there was also a small past between them, and that Jamie had been dreaming of her since he was 12 years old. So the connection was there for me.

Plus, the suspense part of the story was extremely well done, keeping me on the edge of my seat as to how things would go down since

If you love angst, this is not the series for you. I'm not a fan of angst, so am really enjoying it, even if the lack of upset isn't really believable. But then, shifters aren't real either, so why quibble? In this third novelette, Aidan's boss finds himself mated (view spoiler). Although, there isn't much surprise in the identities of each, or how they relate to each other without them previously realizing it.

I liked Alison as a character--she has gone along with
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
When your world changes for the better or at least rights itself to the perception you had as a child. Alison finds that what has been instilled in her most of her life has been a skewed portion of the reality they lived in. Jamie life has been shaped by an event that occurred twenty years before. Fate intervenes and brings the two back together again with different outcome.

More pieces of the human vs hunters puzzle falls into place with some help from key characters.

A Lovely Re-read!

Another re-read, the whole series, in order. So glad I’m doing it, not just to leave a review, but I thourghly enjoyed reading this book the first time, and actually picked up a couple of new things too. Loved the action, and the mate recognition, and all that entails!! This is a book that can be read multiple times and enjoyed each time!!

The publisher's blurb is rather extensive, so no need for a recap. The deep personal conflict that the main characters feel is managed very well and the story grabs you and makes you finish it in one sitting. Excellent!
Patrick Blackthorne is excellent as narrator.

Judging a Book by it's Cover:
Same great, vibrant colors as the first two novellas. This bear looks much less friendly. The composition of the model looks very unnatural and rather blobulous. Synopsis states it can stand alone, but this series reads more like a serial, where one one links onto and continues to the next. Definitely better to read from the beginning and in order.

Jamie at 12 yrs old was ready to shift to his bear but it would not happen until he turned 13. While at the beach one day with his younger brother, he goes off and meets a young girl and for the life of him, he has not forgotten her. However, Jamie also has no idea what happened to his younger brother.

Jamie is the leader with the Alliance the same one Aidan works for and the ones who are trying to protect other shifters from those god-forsaken humans who keep capturing and killing shifters.

Jamie Abbott was a bear shifter and Alliance leader. He had somethings that haunted his past. He blamed himself for his brother’s disappearance. There is also this red headed girl that haunts his dreams every night.

Alison Carter was a secret informative for the Alliance. She was human and had been raised a certain way that could hinder things with her being Jamie’s fated mate. She knew Jamie looked familiar but could not put her finger on why.

The pull between Jamie and Alison will be strong.

This book, more so than the others in the series, challenged the characters to make choices to be together - whether they should accept the stories they've heard about each other since they were kids, whether to defend their mate or their family. I really enjoyed this book, probably more than the other two so far in the series. The characters had to overcome so much together and I can't wait to read more as they set off on their next rescue mission.

This was the third book in the series. You

The first two books left me WANTING TO HEAR JAMIES STORY, I was on pins and needles in anticipation! however?...
Not too sure about this one.I understand the concept in these shifter books. MATE trumps ALL! However Allison devastated Jamie's life. Left his parents and him in deep grief. Yet he forgives her without a second thought. This is stretching MY imagination to the snapping point. It was an ok read.

I loved it. I loved them all, really. And I'm reallt excited for the fourth one.
I loved that the author gave us a view of this male protagonist's past. And how she went into the internal stuggle of the female protagonist.
I loved the writing. Short book, but still.
It still challenged the rules, and I'm all up for that. Werebear-human thing.
I really loved them all and I recommend to everyone out there who likes romance, they're short, but sweet. And the characters are all lovable.

I received an ARC of this book from the author for an honest review.

I think it was a nice, decent story, but not as good as the previous one. I wished it could've been longer because all of the themes and problems that surged during the story had way more depth than they were given and they just solved themselves pretty quickly. Steamy scenes were pretty normal as well as characters.

Overall, a nice read to pass time but nothing overly impressive.

An ARC was given to me for an honest review. Some fanatics are trying to wipe shifters off the face of the earth. This is about the daughter of the head fanatic finding out that possibly all she's been told her whole life about shifters might be a lie. In the leader of the Alliance meeting her again may help him to find someone he has been looking for since he was a child. This is an entertaining and interesting read. Enjoy I did.

This was the third book in the series, but could be read as a stand alone. Jamie and Alison are an unexpected and unlikely pair. However, you can not predict who your mate might be. There is no fighting that intense sense of belonging. This was a quick read. If you enjoy the paranormal then you will like this. I received this book from IndieSage PR in exchange for an honest review.

Third book in the romance series of Scottish Werebears. Jamie is a bear shifter and works protecting shifters against humans that hunt shifters. Alison is from a family of hunters. She is trying to spy on shifters, but the moment she meets Jaime everything changes. Fated mates just can't resist each other.

Love the characters and storyline. Each book in this series can be read as a stand alone, but they build off of each other. Besides if you read one you will want to read them all. Can't wait to read Matty's story.

This is the story of Jamie Abbott - a werebear - who works tirelessly for wereanimals. He meets a woman and is inexplicably drawn to her. She is he mate he has been waiting for - except her family is against wereanimals. This is a very sweet story and also fairly explicit.
