* 1 Cranky Star *

This is the story of the 12 dancing bears trying to find their fated mates. They work at Bear Buns showing off their mate marks to hundreds of ladies a night while stripping.

In this first book we meet Owen and Ryan the grizzly bear dancers. Before the show even starts they meet Helen and sparks fly.

I wanted to love this book. The storyline is original and a fresh take on shifters being accepted by humans. The execution fell flat for me.

The overuse of words like shizz and fricki

Grizzly Bear Buns: A BBW Bear Shifter Menage Paranormal Romance Novella
The Twelve Dancing Bears Book 1
by Sable Sylvan
This is a great hot storyline. But what I want you to understand is I love reading is paranormal romance and especially if the shifters are Bears (Oh My)! Really can't you just picture yourself with a male that has wide shoulders, a 8 pack not a 6 rip abdomen, his package is something all of us dream about and to booth he's a Alpha male, gentleman, protective and everything

Jasmine and Alicia are taking Helen out. Helen just broke up with her boy friend and it's a girls night out. They are headed to Bear Bums. It is one of the top clubs, a strip club for shifters. Helen has never been to one before. Ryan and Owen spot Helen right a way. They both are looking for their fate mate, just one woman for both hunky shifters. It has an interesting fate mark in this story. This is another book that is so hard to put down. It has some very st

Helen is taken for a girls night out by her two best friends to see a show and celebrate her newly single status. It's not just any show, but the HOT Bear Buns show! Ryan and Owen are dancing partners and can't take their eyes off Helen when they spot her from across the room.

This was a fun HOT read! They guys are convinced, but Helen isn't ready thanks to her ex. They are willing to work for her trust and heart. They sure make one hot trio!! Can't wait to see how the other bears makes out.

I chose Grizzly Bear Buns to read because I have never been to a strip club and in my younger days I was curious but never got around to going and now I honestly have no real desire to go to one. I am good with reading naughty books and viewing the occasional bedroom scene in the movies, even though I think movies need to be more equal opportunity in the nudity department.

Grizzly Bear Buns has a really great start with the strip joint and hot guys and all but after the strip club it kind of goe

I have read several of Sable Sylvan’s books and each time I am truly amazed. She is so creative in her writing. I always love how she adds the mate mark effect. I sort of look at it as Sable’s personal signature on her books.

Helen had no ideal what fate had in store for her when she went with her friends to the strip club called Bear Buns. This was suppose to be a time out to celebrate her no longer with scumbag Joe and to cheer her up as well.

Ryan and Owen were these two hot sexy Grizzly bear

I think this was just a bit too cheesy for me. Something interesting about this book is that there is a sex scene yet it seems like the author went out of her way to not have cursing in the book. By went out of her way I mean she made the characters seem juvenile. It would be one thing for Owen and Ryan to say "shizz" instead of sh*t as a personality trait, but when the friend also said it, it was noticeable. It was also noticeable when one of the Heroes said "you're our mate darn it." Darn it. ...more

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. The first in the series of 12 Dancing Bears starts out with newly single Helen on a girls night out with 2 of her girlfriends celebrating getting away from her ridiculous ex. As a surprise, they take her to a strip club that is run by shifters and has the headlining act back at their home base to put on a show. While Helen definitely likes what she’s seeing, old insecurities about her ex stop her from acting on what she really wants to ...more

A new way to find you mate OVER 18+ READING

Ryan and Owen are a pair of grizzly bear dancers at the Bear Buns club where their are 12 bear dancers, right now there are six different bear pairs. It is a system to find their true mates. Helen has spent to many years with her cheating boyfriend and has finally dumped him so her friends have decided to take her on a girls night out to a club,which Helen doesn't know is a male bear shifter strip club. They are the first dancers out and spot her right
I kinda liked the fantasy of stripper bear-shifters. It was fun, unique & sexy; albeit their green sequined shorts & teddy bear costumes were a tad bit corny.

I only wish it was longer, so the month of dating, the proposal, the honeymoon & everything else could've been more fleshed out. I like insta-love but I also LOVE details. :)

On a big side note: The vocabulary could use an overhaul. These are adults, so I'm not a fan of "meat" for c*ck, "honeypot" for p*ssy, "underpants" for unde

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!
***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!

The cover is awesome! This is the first book in the series. This is for adults only due to the steamy content. This series is part of the same shifter world that Sable has built with her other series based in Seattle area.

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this being the first book in this series, but it was fun and very enjoyable. Helen was great, but the real stars were Owen

Hot male strippers, BBW's, a menage, true love & of course, bear shifters. Who could ask for more? This is another good one from Sable Sylvan. The heroine's attitude change from fairly sad & conservative to wild & uninhibited was a little jarring for me, but I really did like the main characters. There's just enough heat without being over the top. This was a fun & fast read. Nothing too heavy - an enjoyable, light romance. I'm looking forward to the next in this new series.

Bear Buns is a special strip club where shifters strip hoping to meet their mate. The stars of the club are the 12 dancing bears who are pairs of bear shifters with matching mate marks. These shifter pairs put on a special show, choosing a woman in the audience who catches their eye. She even gets to participate. If the shifters like their chosen woman, they take her back to their cocktail room where they share their signature cocktails with her. Hopefully they will find their mate but it has be ...more

Good story but....

The story moves a bit too fast. There’s almost no character development, they jump from just meeting to love without enough interaction in between and the dialogue makes the whole store seem very juvenile, even with the adult theme. The beginning had the makings of a great story but was left kind of disappointed

I actually am reading this series a little backwards, but I have to admit I really enjoyed this story. I loved seeing a little more into what happened after they got married and what their plans were. Even us big girls deserve to be happy. I love Big beautiful woman stories.

Ryan and Owen are male/Grizzly shifter strippers. WOW that was a mouthful. Helen has been dumped by her ex who was also cheating no on her. Her BFFs take her to Bear Buns Club to see the touring bear strippers. She meets Ryan and Owen and they know she is their mate. Great story.

Loved it!!!

I received a free copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.

How can someone not love shifters, especially if Ms. Sylvan is the author!!!!! Each book is wonderfully written. I love the guys (Ryan and Owen) and the female Helen was great. I want to go to Bear Buns!!!!

3 1/2 stars

The story was cute with sexual flare and fantasies. Who doesn't think a male stripper is gorgeous but also does not believe they are worthy of being a person? Recommend for fast fun read but be aware there are editing errors throughout.

My heroes are strong alpha male bear shifters who can be grizzly and gruff at times...but when it comes to their fated mates, they're absolute teddy bears.
