I was sent this an Arc Of Bear His Mark for an honest review

From the first chapter of the book I was drawn into the book and couldn't put it down. I love Hollis and Conor Story. They had such an amazing connection to each other and anyone could see the love building for each other. I hated her father and her father's friend. I don't want to give to much away but what an amazing ride throughout the book and the Ending made feel so awesome. great job Reina Torres. I hope you tell Wolf story next
This is part of the Paranormal Shifter Romance series and is Book 4 in the Sylvan City Alphas series. Hollis is a bear shifter who can’t shift.

You have to believe

If you have never taken a trip to Sylvan City this is a great book to go with. Every time this author takes us on a road trip to Sylvan City, we get to hook up with old friends and make new ones. I love this book! I love how she is sure that he is her mate, but is afraid that she isn’t enough for him. The author has made him equally as wonderful because she is all that he wants. With devotion like that you just know the HEA is going to be epic. I can’t wait to read what happe

Hollis More Than Bears His Mark!

Reina Torres once again creates a heartfelt story in Bear His Mark.

An expert in taken the misfortune of her characters and stretching our emotions as they travel their journey to a HEA, Reina enhances her worlds with details, both soft and harsh, that immerse us in her stories.

I loved the struggle that Hollis had, internally and externally, and all she became, once she realized who she really was. And Conor, whew! If only we could each find that special one who

Another riveting shifter love story by Reina Torres. I loved how she totally sucked me into her shifter world and wouldn't let me stop reading until I reached the end and the HEA for Conor and Hollis. It was a bit touch and go there for them but all's well that ends well. Loved the action and twist at the end. Hollis was a great heroine. She can totally take care of herself and the ones she loved. Really admire her for that. Conor was just a big cuddly bear that I wanted to hug forever. Really l ...more

Bear His Mark is book 4 I'm the Sylvan city Alpha series. This book introduces us to Hollis a bear shifter, who is unable to shift. And Conor a grizzly shifter who is searching for his mate. As the events unfold we get to know these great characters and also see where some of our other favorite characters are.
I love this series!

Love and acceptance.

With love and acceptance people can become anything, Hollis becomes herself. The woman she was always supposed to be, rather than the shell of the person she has become. And Conor finally has his mate, who he loves, worships and protects unconditionally....but can she also protect him too?
A fantastic addition to the Sylvan City Alpha's series, please tell me Dom gets his book too? He has so many secrets but when they need him most he is there...every. single. time. It would

Bullying is wrong at any time, but when it is your own family, especially a parent, it is more heinous. It takes strength to overcome such lifelong treatment. Great story full of deception, intrigue, and excitement.
Kathy Heare Watts

A great addition to the Sylvan City Alphas, a series of Alphas of various species who will find their mate—and not all are of the same species—yes, even humans. While this is a series, each story will read well as a stand-alone, and while other characters from previous stories are mentioned, it flows well. The story will bring two mates together, and this will be their story and discovery with a happily ever after ending. The journey along the way is full of danger, suspense, dec

Hollis Can't Shift

She should be able to shift. Her parents were shifters. But Hollis can't shift. She's defective. Conor doesn't care that she can't shift. She is his mate. Trouble is coming for Hollis and Conor. Trouble that could destroy their life together. Lots of sexy shifters, testosterone, and action.

OK, I won’t do what I usually do and restate what the story is about. It is pretty much stated in the first chapter. Needless to say, Hollis and Conor have both been looking for love and finally found it through the Paranormal Dating Agency. But you would think it would be all rosy, nope. Her own clan has been trying to find her a mate to get and heir and now they are treating her like chattel. That part really upset me. I couldn’t believe the hateful mean things that I read. How could someone s ...more

I love this series. I felt bad for Hollis. She was constantly being told she wasn’t worthy of her clan. She was a bear shifter, but hadn’t shifted yet she finally took matters into her own hands and goes to Paranormal Dating Agency to find a mate. When Gerri assures Hollis she will find the perfect mate for her. They go to Sylvan City. Conor Hill needs to let off steam and the gym is the perfect place to do it. Getting in the ring and fighting. He’s supposed to meet his mate soon. He doesn’t kno ...more

I love the series "Sylvan City Alphas" and I adore Gerri Wilder - so what's not to like.
Holli has a problem – her bear won’t show and as the daughter of the Alpha that’s not a good thing. Her father has lost his patience with his only child and Holli sets out to find her mate – with the help of the ever so great matchmaker Gerri Wilder.
Conor wants a mate and happy family like his friends in Sylvan City. (So nice to see how the couples from the previous books were doing). But not all are happy

I loved Hollis and Connor. I've read all the other books from Reina Torres that takes place in Sylvan City, but it's been a while so it took me a chapter or two to refresh my memory on how much I loved these characters. A sweet Paranormal Dating Story, where the matchmaker, Gerri hits her mark right away. That Hollis wasn't treated as broken, like she always considered herself and was constantly reminded from her clan of, was something that warmed my heart. Sometimes you need to find your own cl ...more

A fun and romantic bear shifter story. I loved the two main characters. And the side characters really added that extra bit to make it a great story. Hollis’ character is so lovable and you do feel her pain of how she was brought up. To think to yourself that you are broken because that is how you’ve been treated is heart ripping. Conor is totally opposite from the bears she has know and he feels the whole in his life without a mate. They are definitely to pieces of a puzzle that needed Gerri (t ...more

Love this series and love to read anything by Reina Torres cause I know she does not fail to entertain me with her stories.

This is the 4th in the Sylvan City Alpha Series and it has a great hero in Conner Hill. Conner sees all his friends finding their mates and decides to try Gerri Wilder's Dating Agency cause he knows she has found his friends their mates.

Hollis Hunt comes to Gerri Wilder and ask for help in finding her mate.

Without giving away too much about the book it's a unique shifter story about how love can change you-sometimes for the good, sometimes for the bad-in this case it turned out to be a change for the better which made it a delightful read.
I really loved that the shifters were relate able, I know in relationships sometimes I felt like I wasn't good enough and it's the same for the (completely lovable) shifter in this story.
This may have been my first read from Reina Torres, but it certainly won't

Hollis is a bear shifter who is unable to shift and must find her mate in order to keep her line in succession with her clan. Conor is a bear shifter who just wants to find his mate and happiness. They both end up at the Paranormal Dating Agency where Gerri Wilder matchmakes and what a connection Hollis and Conor make. Great writing, likable characters and a perfect HEA make this a great read. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

A shifter who can't shift and a bear who longs for his mate
A quick and easy read. Wonderful characters who grow with the plot, including those from previous books. Mutual spontaneous attraction between Hollis and Conor at their first meeting that has you rooting for their happy ending. Likeable characters, a bit of family drama, mixed with a very steamy romance makes this a wonderful addition to the Sylvan City Alphas series.

I seriously want to live in Sylvan City! I loved Conor and Hollis's story. I could relate to Hollis and what she went through with her family. It was awesome how Conor took her insecurities and made her realize she was more than enough. There is some very hot and steamy scenes in this gem of a book!! And in the end...she is the one who saves him! It has a delightful ending and prologue that had me cheering in my heart!!

I love the way this felt like a town i want to visit. Great paranormal elements, but still felt like an amazing love story being played out.

The characters were not clumsily made, I also loved the touch of adding characters from previous stories to help explore other elements of the characters.

The story was well paced and had a clear timeline.
