If you are one of my 850K followers, you might know me as the super successful Instagram influencer, but more than likely you probably know me as the woman who got dumped by her former rockstar boyfriend, who then publicly professed his love for his new girlfriend in a song on Spotify before getting engaged a week later ...more

This was so cute and SO much fun to read.
It’s great when a book makes you want to read all the books the author has written so I’m off to do just that.

This was super cute and exactly what I needed today, so naturally, I read it in one sitting (despite having been in the worst slump EVER for the last few months - so, that's a big success for me right now!). Chellie is a likable protagonist and Tanner is such a precious big teddy bear (ha) that you can't help but love him. I like that it's a shifter romance that doesn't play into the whole "alphahole" trope — Tanner's really giving and doting, and while he is protective, he makes it abundantly c ...more

Hot and grumpy lumberjack bear shifter with a gooey center (yes!!!!!) finds his fated mate in a disgraced Instagram influencer struggling to rehab her image after getting publicly dumped. Short and oh so sweet. But I wish this was a longer book! I need more shifter romance in my life.

Jun 06, 2020 rated it it was ok
It was ok. I think I was expecting more because of all the glowing reviews, but this was a rather straightforward and quick read in which the city girl influencer falls for the grumpy (but not really) lumberjack in the woods, with some shapeshifting added to it. It feels like the novellette format doesn't give enough room for all the ideas here and something suffers for it. The exposition parts about shifters felt awkward to me, as did the reactions to the reveal.

This was quick and fun and while it was my first read from Lucy Eden, it's definitely not going to be my last.

The bear shifter romance you didn’t know you needed! Chellie is a hugely popular Instagram influencer - always showing the best version of her life to her 850k followers. Until New Year’s Eve - when she learns her exboyfriend who just dumped her a week ago is already engaged to someone else. The combo of alcohol and learning this news doesn’t lead anywhere good.

The next morning, Chellie decides she needs to get away from it all, clear her head and give things a chance to blow over. She travels a

This was fun. An enjoyable read with no angst. The majority of the book was about their relationship and real sex was saved towards the end. Though there are earlier sexy scenes. It was close to instalove. Tanner knew immediately though for chellie's sake tried to hold it in. Chellie was attracted immediately but was getting mixed signals from Tanner. So it was love-hate on her part. Tanner was what you expect from a shifter, instant knowledge that she's his mate, protective, intrusively so, and ...more

The title already says that you are going to read a novel with paranormal elements in it. When Chellie needs a space to come to herself and to boost her image, she accepts the offer to go to a cabin far away from civilization. There she meets the owner and in the nights a bear who guards her ........ who would have thought that the owner and the bear would be one and the same?
I loved Chellie's character. In the here and now with all the social media she is part of. And then Tanner, so back-to-ea

This was a really sweet shifter romance packed into a nice little novella. Lucy was a social media influencer who needed to find a place to escape, in order to get her reputation back on track after a disastrous New Year's Eve melt down. The answer to her prayers is a mountain retreat that is run by a ruggedly handsome lumberjack type, named Tanner. While the two don't hit it off right away, things quickly start to heat up when she discovers Tanner's hidden secrets. This was an absolutely charmi ...more

Celestine needs to rehab her online reputation and goes to the mountains for a little r&r at the Black Bear Mountain Lodges and checks into one of the cabins. She strikes a deal with Tanner the owner to help him promote the lodge and he can help her familiarize herself with the mountains. I loved how Chellie reacts to the friendly bear who visits her cabin window. Wonderful characters to this so sweet story.

Instant sparks, Bears on the prowl, meltdowns and mountain hermits: anything in common. Why yes, they are part of this well written story of a bear shifter and a woman that is working on her image. These characters are well-fleshed out and continue to grow as story progresses. I loved the story and cannot wait to read more. Good Story

This is the 3rd book I've read written by Lucy Eden; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

Lucy Eden is the nom de plume of an romance obsessed author who writes the kind of romance she loves to read. She’s a sucker for alphas with a soft gooey center, over the top romantic gestures, strong & smart MCs, humor, love at first sight (or pretty damn close), happily ever afters & of course, steamy love scenes.

When Lucy isn’t writing, she’s busy reading—or listening to—every book she can get
