The Bear Project

The Bear Project - Doris O'Connor 3.5 Cocktails

Emmi is stranded in a town of shifters, unbeknownst to her, when her tour bus leaves her while she’s stuck in the restroom of the local bar. As she’s debating what to do next, she is cornered by a very sexy and very tall Cole. She takes a chance and goes home with him. The sex is off the freakin’ charts and the chemistry between the two is even hotter.

Cole knew from his first scent of her in the bar that Emmi was his fated mate; but his job on the shifter council takes him all over the world and he’s not sure he wants to be tied down. His bear has other ideas and wants to claim its mate quick, fast and in a hurry.

Emmi explains to Cole why she’s really here and how much she loves bears. Ironically, Cole is a bear shifter and even though he shouldn’t, he claims Emmi as his mate. Emmi accepts the claim without knowing what it all entails. She has a job and a life back in England and doesn’t believe in the whole mating-for-life-he-will-always-come-for-you aspect of it all. Can the two come to terms with their mating and live happily ever after or will stubbornness and hidden threats sink the mating before it has a chance to grow?

The story was entertaining but I just wasn’t able to enjoy it as much as I wanted to. There was a good plot line and the passion between Cole and Emmi was scorching but I just can’t place why my interest started to wane through the book. I would still recommend this book to anyone who enjoys paranormal shifter books though.
