The solitude had always been my companion and I accepted it, embraced it. Living on my own with the forest as my backyard had always been good enough for me.

Until it no longer was.

The quiet could be loud, the loneliness a burden. I was tired of being on my own. I wanted a wife, needed a woman to call my own.

Who I wanted was Susie.

She was sweet and kind, innocent and so

This was a great addition to the series. Bear & Susie's story was the Insta Love you expect from this author. Grumpy loner & sweet virgin = Kaboom! Dirty quick read.

Short and sweet.

Bear has been in love with Susie for years quietly watching her from afar. Wanting her but never thinking he could be good enough for her. He’s a rough and tumble man living his life away from civilisation but knowing he should let her go and letting her go are becoming an impossibility. He needs her to be his and next time he sees her that’s what he’s going to tell her.

Susie is so in love with Bear, she’s been trying to get him to notice her for years but believing she’s invis

Bear is a loner. Lives on the mountain in his cabin in solitude. He doesn’t even go to town for his groceries. That’s where Susie comes in. She works at the grocery store and volunteers every time to deliver the groceries to Bears cabin. She just wants him to notice her, to realize she has loved him since the first time she laid eyes on him. This is a short read about an alpha male who knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to claim it.

Bear has wanted her from afar for years , she brings his groceries to his secluded cabin  he swears the next time he sees her he will tell her she is his.
Suzie has loved Bear from afar always wanting to be the one to bring his groceries now she is going to tell him how she feels.

These two are explosive when they get together and their story will make you  fall in love again

The Bear's Capture by Jenika Snow
I really enjoyed the short story.
Bear isn't much of a social person, doesn't even go into town to get his groceries but you can count on Susie. She works at the store and has always volunteering to take up anything to him in the chance of seeing him. Little did she know that bear has seen her every time she thought she was alone, he was lurking watching her from afar. These two have been in each other presence but none have done anything to approach one another

This was another great short, sexy and safe story written by one of my favorite authors', Jenika Snow :)

I have to admit that I love when this author writes these short, fast paced, insta-love stories because I'm a huge fan of these types of stories and she definitely knows how to write the right amount of heat, passion and how to input the few obstacles that our couples must face to stay together... it's awesome to be relaxing and reading a hot read on your kindle and imagining in your head as i

Bear and Susie are done denying and are gonna get there HEA. Susie has for 2 long years taking grocery deliveries to the man on the mountain. His quiet sure ways have won her heart and she is no longer just going to sit meekly by and let him go without knowing her true feelings. Bear has pinned after the sweet kind Susie but knows he only has his mountain life and cabin home to offer her. Tired of denying his heart and hunger he is determined to lay it all on the line for her.

Bear and Susie are in love with each other, but neither knows the other is! I loved this short little story that brings Bear and Susie together after longing for each other. I also enjoyed getting to see Wolf and his wife. Jenika Snow writes the instant love stories that I sometimes need in my life and she does it so well. Steamy, hot and a quick read, you still get all the emotions and feelings going on between the characters.

Bear sought solitude after the loss of his mother years before and has embraced it, letting it heal him. Over time, it's become all he knows and as such, finds socializing in any way uncomfortable, even with his fellow mountain recluse, Wolf (see The Wolf's Capture for his story). But ever since Wolf found happiness with Ruby, Bear is beginning to see his attraction to Susie in a whole new light, one that means she can be his after all.

The Bear’s Capture might be a novella but a quick read but it is also quick to capture your attention and hold it.

Bear Hollis lived by himself in a cabin the woods, which was possibly a good thing as he wasn’t exactly a friendly, sociable guy. Susie delivered his groceries, like she’d done each month for the past two years, but secretly crushing on Bear. This is their story.

Right from the beginning the descriptions of each character brings them alive and makes them real. Add in the incredible de

I really enjoyed this book from Jenika. I actually liked it more than Wolf's book.
I liked how Susie was so sweet. I enjoyed that she had fallen in love with Bear from afar. Even though she volunteered to deliver his groceries to his isolated house each month, she couldn't tell him how she felt.
Bear was in a similar situatuon. Every month that Susie brought his groceries to him he wanted her more and more. He wanted to keep her for only humswlf. He had been alone for so long that it caught him of

This is another quick, sweet, hot read by Jenkia Snow.

Susie delivers Bear's groceries once a month and dreams of catching a glimpse of the muscular man that lives alone in his cabin. She is deeply in love with him but afraid to say anything to him for fear of rejection and that would break her heart.
Bear knows Susie will deliver his monthly supply of groceries but most of the time he stays hidden from her sight but watches her. He is deeply in love with her and wants her for his own but is afra

Susie has developed quite a crush on Bear in the years she's been delivering his groceries to his home on the mountain. He's so reclusive that he doesn't even come into town to buy stuff. That's where she comes in. Every time she delivers and sets out his groceries, she comes to love him a little more. And now she's come to the conclusion that she has to tell him how she feels or she'll regret it for the rest of her life.

What she doesn't know is that Bear feels the same way about her. He's just

Bear Hollis lives alone in the mountains and loves his solitude but there is only one person whom he likes to see - Susie.

Susie has been in love with Bear for years and is the person who delivers his groceries to his home from in town. She is scared to let him know how she feels and everytime she tells him that she will tell him on her next visit.

Will Bear or Susie ever make the first move or will their love never get that one chance?

This was a good quick read on finally acting on your feelings

This is the insta love, consuming story of Bear and Susie. It is full of heat and a bit of story line. I loved this story as Bear was the ultimate aggressive (and possessive) alpha man.

He is brutal and savage, and loves living alone but wants Susie for his very own. Susie loves Bear as well, but felt he only saw her as his delivery person. One day they both decide, individually and independently, to tell each other their true feelings. This leads to the passion of the story.

As far as I know this was the first book by this author that I've read & given that she's been recommended I was really looking forward to it. I loved the premise and the slow build up. I loved having the inside knowledge on what Bear & Suzie were thinking and feeling. I loved the epilogues (that's right - 2 of them!) that gave an insight to what was happening at different times in their future. But unfortunately the part where they actually got together kind of left me feeling disappoin ...more

It was impossible not to fall in love with Bear and Susie's characters. Bear keeps his distance from people, each trip Susie makes to his cabin to drop off his shopping he either watches from a distance or exchanges little words with her, Susie ensures she is the only person to drive to his home in the hope of catching a glimpse. Bear see's what his friend Wolf has and he decides that the next time he see's Susie he will let her know how much he wants her, likewise Susie has decided to put her h ...more

This is Susie and Bear’s story. Bear is used to the quiet and loved it. But what he really wants is a wife. He wants Susie. He is going to have her. He just must figure out how to get and keep her. Susie wants him and loves him. But she is just a delivery girl what could she really give him. S
This story is short, fast paced and a nice read. The writing style for this book is easy to follow, the characters are likeable and the storyline is enjoyable. I read this book in one sitting and was satisfied throughout. I liked that Bear and Susie both had feelings for one another that they were a little afraid to admit to one another. Susie had fallen in love with Bear even though she only saw him once a month when she delivered his groceries.

I enjoyed this love from a distance book. Bear and Susie have been pining after each other for awhile but they don't show their interest to the other. Susie delivers Bear's groceries to his out in the woods cabin and puts them away in his kitchen. He tends to keep himself hidden from Susie, instead of getting to know her and let her in on his feelings for her. Susie looks forward to seeing Bear but that doesn't happen very often on her once a month delivery trips to his cabin because he stays ou ...more
