Bound by Shadows (Grizzlies Gone Wild #1) by Kathy Lyons

Between singlehandedly running her bakery and raising her teenaged nephew, Becca Weitz thought she had a decent grip on "normal." Then her nephew vanishes, and life as she's known it changes forever. Local legends are true: bear shifters exist . . . and her nephew is part of their clan. As is Carl Carman, the sexy, larger-than-life man who has sworn to find her nephew-and the other young shifters who've gone missing.

As the leader of his clan, Carl is surrounded by enemies. He's learned the hard way that keeping a firm leash on his inner beast is key to survival, though his feelings for Becca test his legendary control. Then danger stalks too close, and Carl realizes he must unleash the raging, primal force within to protect everything he holds dear. But can Becca trust his grizzly side with her life-and her heart?

4 out of 5 stars

Sexy grizzly bear shifters for the win! I had such a great time reading this. It had a light, fun vibe happening, it was entertaining and super-steamy! I love the world the author created and I'm excited for more!

I liked Becca a lot, she was doing everything she could for her nephew when she's thrown into this crazy world of shifters. Carl was awesome, incredibly sexy, a great protector, and the head bear in charge. I loved their worlds colliding when they meet! I liked Becca’s disbelieving reaction to everything and enjoyed her slowly coming around to her new reality. I loved Carl and his bear and the personal battle he was going through. I really liked Carl and Becca's attraction and that need he had for her and how it grew and exploded. These two were smoking hot! There were just a lot of really great scenes that were incredibly entertaining that had me smiling and turning the page. There's also a good bit of emotion, a lot of action, and drama too.

I thought this was a great introduction to the Grizzlies Gone Wild series and am looking forward to more. I like the secondary characters introduced and the different dynamics and politics of the clan. I liked all the details but appreciated that it wasn’t bogged down with every little thing. It gave me just what I needed so I could jump in and enjoy it. I thought the build to finding Theo, and to Carl and Becca coming together was great as well.

I loved this wild world, the characters, and their strong personalities. I enjoyed the drama and intensity and the heat. Oh, the heat! It was all awesome. Pure fun and entertaining to read!
