Bearing It All Review

3 1/2 STARS
This intriguing paranormal romance is full of laughter and romance that makes the reader feel good. Fox shifter Violet Larue needs to find a mate before she goes absolutely nuts. When she’s convinced to attend the local cage fight, she finally finds the bear for her. Muscled, inked up and one of the most dangerous fighters in the world, “Crag” Morgan catches a glimpse a redhead with eyes that make his heart skip a beat in the crowd and vows to do whatever it takes to claim her… forever.
This steady to fast paced plot keeps readers well entertained with suspense, action, humor and romance. The author paints a vivid picture of the story and characters that make the reader feel as if they are part of the story and really know the characters. The characters are strong compelling characters with lots of quirky personalities that grab the attention and charm the reader. The tension builds throughout the story as Crag tries to find a way out of his situation and also as young girls come up missing and it seems to follow the fighting events.
The attraction between Violet and Crag radiates from each and every page and the sex scenes are hot and steamy with the relationship being the center stage of the plot. The romance progresses with some emotional angst, but mostly with lots of chasing and humorous moments that leaves the reader with a happy feeling.
Jamesburg is the setting for a whimsical and charming group of shifters from all walks of life. Each characters personality resembles their animal making each and every stand out and causing quite a few chuckles. Although, I found the story to be a tiny bit choppy, it was an enjoyable read and the variety of characters also adds lots of spice to the story and the promise of future books to looks forward to and I can’t wait to read the next one.
