I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. This is book 5 in the Rescue Bears series, it is a stand alone book with a HEA. I recommend reading them in order just for the character development. Zach is the free spirit of the clan and lives his life to the fullest. Once he meets Maisie nothing is the same. Maisie is the daughter of Kelly the receptionist at the Fate Lodge and is coming home to start her own bakery. This is their hot steamy story of finding their true mate. Recommend to a ...more

As I have been commenting on the covers of these books, Ski Bear looks like a dude from San Diego, CA. He's got surfer dude written all over him. Although, I thought his hair should have been more blond. Maize is from Fate Mountain and has returned to be near her mom and run her own bakery. Her mom persuades her to sign up for and voila! She is matched to Ski Bear. Pastry chef and X-Game athlete, I don't think so, but opposites do attract. This is a great story, because Maize does the ...more

Hot shifter + curvy chef = hot romance

I loved this sexy tale of fated mates. Zack's been missing his mate and not only does he find her but she's perfect him. Maisie returns home to the Mountain and falls in lust with Zack at first sight. Zack saves the day using their bond. Great sensitive exploration of the bond wins out.

Scarlett Grove is an AWESOME author and she has rocked another Rescue Bear book. She has proven that not only can she write awesome Alien romance, she can do paranormal romance as well. I love her work. “Ski Bear” is the 5th book in the series and in my opinion almost as good as “Brew Bear.” She has taken Zach (Ski Bear) and the rest of the Rescue bears and worked out another great book. She grabs your attention at the beginning of the book and holds it till the end of the book. I look for that ...more

ski bear is someone that just grows on you. in all the books he's the light hearted one, the joker, the one who always sees the positive side of things. and now zach is getting his own HEA, i can only applaud that fact. but he doesn't get it the easy way, oh no, rather the opposite when the young woman he gets paired with is like his complete opposite. seeing she lives in Paris, france for some years he has himself convinced he can't live up to the fast pace high society life she must have had w ...more

Awww! Nothing better than a good shifter romance that you can curl up on your comfy chair and read. Especially one that will leave you feeling warm all over. Scarlett Grove’s Rescue Bears series is one of the better “feel good” series out there. Whenever you have a big burly, cuddly bear who falls hard over soft, curvy women, you can’t possibly go wrong, and Ms. Grove has definitely given us that. Zach, even though he portrays the fun loving, easy going sports jock, deep down, he wants his mate. ...more

A good value read.

Zach is the light-hearted fun one of the rescue bears. Even though he was a SEAL with the rest of the guys in the war, he has managed to maintain a bright outlook on life. He wants to find his mate and is slightly jealous of the others but he thinks he has to grow up and change for this to happen.

Maisie grew up in Fate Mountain but knew very little about shifters, she admits this was by her own choice. She has lived in Paris the last few years as one of the top Pastry chefs in

This was a very cute story. Maisie and Zach are fated mates but they have a bit more of a normal relationship growth, than the other Rescue Bears. Zach has been trying to be more mature and ready for his mate to show up and he is definitely on the right path when she does. Maisie is back to open her own bakery after being in Paris for years. Zach and Maisie have a bit of a run in and are immediately drawn to each other, even before they get matched on I think that this helped Maisie ha ...more

Man have I been waiting for this happy go lucky bad boy to get his turn on the slopes!

Zach/Ski Bear is feeling kind of not himself cause he is always the life of the party, but all of a sudden he decides it's time to put his big boy pants on if he expects the guys to respect him and if he wants to get a mate. He has always just taken life for granted, but now that all his crew, except Corey that is, have found their mates, he's kind of left hanging in the background... And he doesn't think he's

Zach is a polar bear shifter and has been eager to find his mate and settle down like so many of his friends. He keeps checking the app for a match but no luck. Maisie is moving back to town from Paris to open her shop and be back with her mom. She needs to focus on work but her mom encourages her to try the shifter app. These two don't appear to be a match but the app says differently.

Shifters have had it hard since coming out in society, from losing their jobs, to being conscripted into the miliatary, it's only after they'd faught & proved something to humans have they since been more accepted. Geek Bear (Cody) has created a mating app for shifters, & through a load of questions, you get paired with females best suited to you.

Zach loves his life and he loves teaching people to ski. His job and the lodge and being a part of the rescues are thrilling. He is seen as a wild one but really he just wants to find his mate. The site that his friend developed hasn't matched him with anyone and he is beginning to worry.

Maisie is back home after being away in Paris for a long time. She is eager to open her pastry shop and settle in. Her mom works at Fate Mountain and really wants her to find someone to love.
