Sometimes the happy in happily ever after is relative. Or related. Sort of. The third slice of sweetness from the Cake-ily Ever After bakery in Kinship Cove will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth.

I’m supposed to be the nice sister. The good one. The girl everyone can count on and who rallies the troops whenever one of us needs a little boost. I’m not supposed to be any

Crushing Love.....

Those sisters at Cake-ily Ever After are lucky gals.....Coco got her Silver Fox wolf, Ginger her Silver Fox Dragon and Madeline, well poor Madeline can't seem to get her long time crush and love of her life to notice her, or can't she?

Madeline has tried everything in the book to get that hunk of a bear to notice she even bought the his family home where she grew up, but she is always crest fallen. Can't even tempt him with some honey buns made just for him on a daily basis? He
3.5-4 stars

This was a pretty good story. I liked both Madeline and Jericho but I wasn't completely on board with Jericho's reasons for staying away from Madeline for so long.

Madeline is a pastry chef at a bakery she co-owns with her sisters. They lost their parents at a young age and Madeline and her sisters were raised by a woman that was also a bear shifter. She also just happened to be the Aunt of Jericho, Madeline's longtime crush and the mayor of their town.

Jericho is a bear shifter and th

Bookstores aren't just for buying and reading books anymore

Bookstores aren't just for buying and reading books anymore and Madeleine have been making a profit with her side job there. The things men would provide money for is what she would use against them for her cause. Only a couple more secret meetings she would be able to get the repairs done in her roof and other parts of her house. Although, Madeleine had always had a crush and wished Jericho was her mate she knew it wouldn't happen so wh

Finally!!!! Madaleine’s turn to unite with her mate is here. And hers she’s known since she was a baby. Which makes things awkward…. kind of. We know that shifters live much longer than humans, so it makes sense that they won’t necessarily find their mates at a young age. So when Jericho, the Kinship Cove’s mayor realizes his fated mate is the sweet and kind Madaleine Chase, the age difference and more than that, the fact he’s known her as an adult since she was a baby, makes him feels like an o ...more

Another cute story about the people of Kinship Cove & the ladies of Cake-ily Ever After Bakery. In this story you get to meet Madeleine and her journey/struggles in life.


Jericho (a bear shifter) has been denying that Madeleine is his mate since she became of's the hardest thing he has ever done and his bear is very cranky with him!
Madeleine is an amazing cake creator and for the longest time she has wanted Jericho but he has shot her down for the last time....unfortuna

I really suggest reading the first two books to get a better feel for this story and the two main characters. These books sort of run concurrently but are not interlinked.
Poor Madelaine, her non-mate Jericho is really being a pain.
I could understand Jericho’s thinking but he was not giving Madelaine the respect she deserved. She is stronger than he believes though I did love him bearing out to confront Spencer when he was rude.
I found this a good fun story and would have loved to know what happe

Madeleine owns and works at and Cake-ily ever after bakery but she has a side business selling something that her sisters Coco and Ginger didn’t even know about . Lol
Jericho is the mayor of kinship cove and he has had a few problems. One being a jerk named Spencer. He is running a dirty campaign against him to become mayor. The other is he know who is mate is and he thinks he can't have her . He and her dad was best friends and he has known her since she was in diapers. He thinks is to old, its

Madeleine and Jericho

I loved this book just as much as the first 2 in the series! A quick, fun,and flirty read with just the right amount of heat thrown in. What’s a girl to do when the man/shifter she has been in love with forever still sees her as the little girl his family took in with her sisters years ago? Add in a money pit of a home named Matilda, a sneaky political opponent and the need to earn a little extra cash just might have Jericho putting on his big girl panties and claiming his f

Quick and Enjoyable

This story is the least fun and flirty of the first three books in the series. Madeleine and Jericho have been drawn to each for years. As the Mayor of Kinship Cove, Jericho knows that Maddy is his fated mate but worried that she is too fragile for the rigors of campaigning and being in politics. In the meantime, Madeleine has a secret that could spell disaster to Jericho's mayoral campaign. She needs money and has found a novel way to make it. A quick and enjoyable read.

Honey Bear

I loved this book. I read all three and can not wait until the fourth book to come out. I love how the author wrote this book it had comedy, romance, and a little of action of a protective mate. I keep wondering when he was going to get his big boy pants on and finally clame his mate I couldn't put the book down. There was not to just sex senses that to over the book I love it about this book too.

I absolutely adored Honey Bear. It managed to just pull on all the right emotional strings. Madeleine was just the best! Doing everything she could to keep afloat and with a house that seemed to hate her, a crush that didn’t recognize her. Jericho was such a guy, doing ignorant things. I was so glad to see his sister calling him out. It was amazing that Jericho managed to save his relationship in the end. The ending was fabulous especially the part about the cat and the house.

Always the quiet ones

I just knew there was something up with Maddie. That girl may have seemed all sweet and nice, but she was woman who knew what she wanted and aimed to get it. And Jericho, the dear mayor didn’t stand a chance.

Another great story isn’t eh series! Again Misty shines though, all mama fox and protecting the sisters. She is definitely my favorite supporting character in the series.

Tempting him with honey

I think this is my favorite book of this series so far. I love that Jericho is trying to protect his mate without realizing he is actually hurting her, and that Madeline is trying to be strong when she is really sweeter than she thinks. Their road may be long, but eventually they make it to their HEA and their home sweet home. I can’t wait to read the next book.

Sweet story on dad-bff-turned-lover and long time coming love. The plot was all about accepting the fate. When you love, you love. Why denying the inevitable. The plot was short but it did sweeten with the hot af sexy time. And what a sexy sexy time it was. Love how the plot spice up with bits of the resistence, the chase, and lovers quarrell here and there. We all know we need a bit of that in our instalove story, especially the smooth transition between drama and the lust part.

Honey Bear

In this third book in the series the third and youngest sister finds out that she also has a mate. A shifter just for her. But finding out that he has been around for a long time and knew who and what she meant to him can open a can of worms. Will he ever let her know that his animal is wanting her?

Madeline gets her bear shifter mate who is also the mayor. Madeline has a secret that makes little sense to me. Jericho is a bit too committed to duty. When he takes Madeline, her first time, it’s on a picnic table behind a bookstore...seriously! How uncouth is that?
I’m glad they get together, I guess.

Ellis Leigh has put out another awesome silver fox story.

I loved this story. I had received a free copy via a contest but after reading had to buy it. He is a alpha male who has denied his feelings for to long about her. He has to get over his own inner self to find happiness.

Loved Madeline and Jericho's story. Jericho fought long and hard not to claim Madeline as his mate. Madeline tried to show Jericho how she felt but about the time she was giving up. Things changed.

Every sister now has her mate. Took Jericho a long time to admit
It both to himself and then to Madeline . Almost lost her because of his concern for hurting her reputation . She stood strong and prevailed .

I loved Jericho and Madeleine’s story. It was sweet and entertaining, and very enjoyable. My only small grumble is the ending, which felt like it was cut a little short.

The overprotective Jericho just won't let himself go after his mate. How much longer will Madeleine wait for him to realize he needs her? Such a very sweet story.
