Private Investigator, Summer Delgado hopes Gerri can find her twin sister a man. If anyone needs a happily ever after, it's Winter. But not Summer. She’s got no time for romance. Even if it’s wrapped in smoking-hot shifter muscles. She's got to focus on the break-in at Gerri Wilder's apartment. Who needs a sexy, grumpy bear stomping around? Not Summer. Nope. Gerri has othe ...more

I love author Milly Taiden's Paranormal Dating Agency or PDA series and in this one we get not only Gerri Wilder but also her friend Barbara Wolf who are showing us they can match up shifters. This book has all the feel goods and romance we get from a PDA book plus that touch of mystery and more. I love that we are introduced to a second person who we know we is getting matched as well so that has us waiting impatiently for the next book to come out so we can find out how their story turns out.< ...more

This is an OK shifter romance, but it seemed like the couple was more in lust than in love. I have no problems with lots of sexy times in my romances, but this one was mostly sex and only a little romance. I liked the couple, and I always adore Gerri Wilder -- I just need a little more romance and a little less lust.

Addictive & Shamelessly Entertaining, PDA Never Disappoints...

I love, love, LOVE the Paranormal Dating Agency (PDA) book series by Milly Taiden!  Before I began reviewing books in earnest last spring I read through the original twenty books in quick succession.  The PDA series is what made Milly Taiden my go-to author for quick reads in between the much darker, more violent fare I frequent. Her grumpy, growly alpha types (shifter and alien alike) are perfect literary palate cleansers for me, help

Bear In Mind is the 23rd book in the Paranormal Dating Agency series. In this book we follow human Summer & bear shifter Quinn while they search for their happily ever after.

Private investigator Summer isn't looking for love herself. She has no time for that. But she does want Gerri Wilder to find her twin sister a mate. Of course she doesn't realize that Gerri has plans for both of the twins.

Alpha bear shifter Quinn has a lot of things going. He wants Gerri's pastry

Another winner. But then, you always know it's going to be when you open a PDA story. Gerri never fails to find a match for her client (even when they aren't looking for one). Summer wants to match up her sister who doesn't have time for a man even a hot alpha shifter. Meeting Quinn leaves two impressions, he's smokin' and a grouch. Good thing the next meeting is better. A LOT BETTER. Still, Summer came to investigate the recent break-in at Gerri's, not find a man.

Quinn has plenty to keep him b

Summer just wants to help her sister find a mate. She is NOT looking for herself. However, Gerri has a habit of dinding your mate, even when you don't know you want one!

Quinn makes a bit of an impression of Summer when they literally crash into one another. He needs to make a better impression, after all the intriguing woman is his mate! Summer believes she is investigating a break-in at Gerri's home. But as usual that sneaky matchmaker has a much more intriguing plan.

I will be in the minority with my review but I found this to be not one of the better books in this series. Just all too jumbled and rushed.
Plot-line is good but execution is hurried. I want to relax when reading, not feel like I am on a runaway train. I felt like it was a race from page one for events to happen. Rapid fire questions, rushed tea and scones. All hurry, hurry.
Sad the events that occurred due to bigotry. I hated that 30 years had passed and a family was devastated but d
Lynn Thinking out loud
Let me start off by saying I loved Quinn. This was not one Of Milly Taiden's best books. For one it was like reading a cereal box. There was nothing really in between. They are shifters so when they shift in anger or in a hurry they ruin their clothes. But for some reason Milly didn't feel the need to go in to depth with this. One minute they shift then the next they miraculously have clothes on again.
And the heroin was not the brightest bulb in the pack. She is a PI and she keeps saying she ca

This is book 23 in the Paranormal Dating Agency series. It can be read as a stand-alone. Summer wants Gerri to fix her twin sister up and she wants nothing to do with a man. She’s way too busy to date or anything but you know how fate is. As she’s leaving Gerri’s apartment, she literally runs into Quinn Teddy, a sexy Alpha bear. The chemistry between these two make this such a fun read. It’s short but the action involving Summer, Quinn and Quinn’s family is fantastic! The only thing I found wron ...more

This book could have used a bit more explanation on the shifter world (there may be some more in the previous books, but there needed to be just a bit more in this story). Also, Summer makes some really stupid (and potentially dangerous decisions) for someone that is supposed to be a trained PI. But I did like her story with Quinn.

This is a cute fun story that has a happy ever after that is linked into the next story.
Gerri is up to her tricks again. Summer wants her to find a mate for her twin sister. But little does she know Gerri has plans for her. Summer who happens to be a PI also decides to check into a break-in that happened in Gerri's apartment.

Bear in Mind has to be a big favorite of mine now. I loved everything about it. Milly Taiden out did herself in her own classic style.

Sassy to a T, a in your face PI out on a mission to get her twin a hook up and goes to see our famous if not a bit infamous Geri Wilder.

Now you have a bossy hot Alpha with a BIG mystery on his hands that will a lot of dirt around and everybody gets dirty. Which the PI seems to like getting durty with the Bear. *grins*

Milly Taiden did it again! Bear in Mind: Paranormal Dating Agency was awesome!
From page one, Milly Taiden delivered a suspensful, intriguing, sexy story! The chemistry between PI Summer Delgado and Alpha bear shifter Quinn Teddy sizzles from the moment they first run into each other. The mystery that unfolds from there keeps you on your toes, all while the sheets are practically burned up by their attraction! Thanks Milly for another amazing read!

I love when an author writes a book where her two beloved worlds collide, and Bear in Mind is just one of the books. Gerri Wilder and Barbara Wolfe are at their best when they are meddling in the lives of the people they care about. Summer Delgado is sassy, witty and sexy while just trying to do something for her twin sister. Quinn Teddy is an all Alpha bear shifter trying to take care of his family. Sparks fly and the two burn up the sheets and the pages. What an awesome addition to the Paranor ...more

Another fantastic addition to the PDA series. I especially loved when Gerri and Barbara Wolfe(Sassy Mates series) get together we never know what kind of shenanigans those two will get into and I'm here for all of it. So you already know that they definitely didn't disappoint. So when you add in intrigue, suspense, and of course steamy romance you have a spectacular read.

When Summer visits Gerri to find a mate for her sister, she has no idea what's in store for her instead. Quinn is alpha of his bear clan and much too busy to find a mate. Thankfully, Gerri decides to take care of that for him.

This was an interesting and fast-paced read. Perfect for lunchtime. Just be careful reading at has lots of Taiden's signature steam. *fans self*

This story is much more interesting than the previous ones to me. We have a mystery and stubborn, independent (and not snarky yay!) female and a grumpy handsome bear who has a big problem. I didn't quite feel the chemistry between Summer and Quinn but the mystery about Quinn's family was interesting. So is Summer's job though she sure doesn't give the impression that she's been doing it for a while. It felt like it was a hobby for her and not a job. Not convincing as a PI.

Here she soes it again. MILLY TAIDEN never disappoints with this series of books. This story has some of everything you need. Hotness action suspense and just good writing. I love Gerrie as a character through out all books and she keeps it coming in this story as well. Summer is definitely 1 of my favorite characters and her mate Eric is so right for her. Love it you will enjoy every page.

Having enjoyed reading the stories of Gerri's matchmaking this was a perfect addition to the series. The combined humour, mystery, romance and a little assistance from our favourite matchmaker made this book a highly entertaining read and has left me desperate to see what happens to the other characters i.e. the siblings of Summer and Quinn. This book is one that you will want to read again and again.

What doesn't Gerri have up her sleeve? I love how she seems to know more about the clients before they even know what they know what they themselves want or even realize they were already snared into her wiley traps. This is one world that I have never regretted finding as each book and spin off only gets better and better.

Bear In Mind is a definite one click book that you need to read. Summer is headstrong and confident. Quinn is a sexy Alpha bear shifter that has a heart of gold. When Quinn and Summer team up, you better get out of there way. Love, friendship, and loyalty this book has a little something for everyone.
