Reviewed by SFF Dragon

As much action thriller as sizzling paranormal romance, with mystery and suspense to go with the HEA. I absolutely loved it

Well written in the first person with the point of view alternating between the two main characters, 'Cole' is the third book in Kenzie Cox's terrific series of action packed paranormal romances set in Bayou Basin and featuring the Black Bear Outlaws, otherwise known as the Doucet brothers, bear shifters who've left their dodgy teenage p

Cole by Kenzie Cox

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

EEEP!! Another awesome sifter series closed from Kenzie. I love this sort and sweet (well not really sweet more like naughty) book.

This story continues from where the last one ended. Cole was hired by a friend PI to protect celebrity act

Cole is the last of these hunky shifter bear brothers to find his mate. He was hired to protect actress (and bear shifter) Amberly. She was being stalked by an unknown quantity and he decided the best place to hide her out was at a distant relatives home that she had inherited in his hometown. He didn't expect to be drawn to her though. She is nothing like the high maintenance, prima donna he expected.

But when explosives are delivered to her new hideaway and only sheer luck protects her and Cole

Amberley and Cole in Bayou Basin
Amberley is a movie star who just happens to be in danger. Why? She has no idea but someone is out to get her. The cops have been called in to investigate. Even a big time PI/ bodyguard to the stars but nothing so far, so Amberley is hiding out at her grandma's old place in Bayou Basin and under the protection of Black Bear Outlaws protection agency or more to the point Cole.
Everything was fine until Amberley found out someone was taking over her movie! Then she

I was given an ARC of "Cole" from the author, in exchange for an honest review.

I couldn't wait to start reading 'Cole' I wanted to jump right in & find more out about Cole. What a read, everything that I'd come to love about Kenzie's previous books is all in here. 'Cole' is book 3 in Kenzie's series "Black Bear Outlaws", which in turn is a part of the "Mating Fever" collection. A set of books from 8 authors, 8 different packs & an individuals story on finding their mate.

Starlet Amberly's
Kristine (A Cozy Booknook)
This is a terrific, fast-paced, action filled, addition to the Black Bear Outlaws series by Kenzie Cox. There is mystery, suspense, and romance; something for everyone.

This is about Cole, the youngest of the Doucet brothers who own and operate the Black Bear Outlaws security./ Cole has been hired as the bodyguard to Hollywood starlet, Amberly Matthews. Amberly has a stalker and she is in Bayou Basin at the one place no one should know about - or so she thought. When danger comes knocking on her

Amberly was getting threats, none of which she took to seriously, nevertheless, she did head to Bayou Basin and hire Black Bear Outlaw Security for protection. Of course, she got a lot more that protection! Cole knew when they met she was his, under the circumstances he decided he would not be the one to make a move and told her as much. When she receives a bomb in the mail (and no one is supposed to know she is there) that nearly kills Cole, she realizes just how much danger not only she is in ...more

The final book in the outlaw bears series started with a bang and ended just as magically.
Cole is in bodyguard mode big time when he is hired by actress Amberlyn after a series of events that put her life in danger but no one can figure out where the danger is coming from.
Cole and his brothers are now on the case and for Cole it becomes so much more than a case, he and Amberlyn are fated mates heading for a collision.
Cole is the youngest brother and the last one to find his mate, this was a swee

Hollywood in Bayou Basin!

Baby Cole Doucet is up for grabs!

Amberly hasn't been back in Bayou Basin since her mother decided to make her a star in L.A., now she is back hiding from a mysterious stalker that is trying to get her out of the way. She hires Cole as her bodyguard, but she had no idea stars would fly when she saw him.

Cole Doucet is the last of the brother to find his mate and it comes in the guise of a very uppity starlet. Will he be able to protect her while keeping his hands off her?

I really enjoy this series. The stories are short, but exciting, and I love the characters. Cole and Amberly are a great match. Like the other stories in this series, the heroine is strong and independent, and the hero is very loyal, but not overprotective to the point of smothering. It was very cool that Amberly is a big actress in Hollywood. That made things interesting, and I loved the surprises! I can't get enough of the Doucet brothers, and their constantly growing family. I received this b ...more

Cole (Black Bear Outlaws, #3) (Mating Fever Collection)
by Kenzie Cox

Cole is hired by Amberly to protect her from a stalker, but who is going to protect Cole's heart from Amberly?

This may be one time where a bad boy bear will just have to raise his paws and give in to love.

Thi is a fast paced book with a little romance, mystery, suspense and full of action. Nothing like being up close and personal with the gator in the bayou. I was drawn in from the get go and before I knew it, I finished the book.
Loved than the Author brought in the characters from Cyrus and Chase and their mates.
