Protection: Shifters Forever Worlds
Protection: Shifters Forever Worlds by [Thorne, Elle]

Grant is a grizzly bear shifter living in Bear Canyon Valley. His bear thinks that Chelsea should be his mate but he is worried that she will not accept his bear.

Chelsea has the hots for her client Grant. He gets his hair cut religiously by her every few weeks even though it does not really need it. She would like to have more than just a crush, but decides her secrets make it too dangerous to risk getting involved.

I liked the story, but I had issue with a few things (had to deduct a heart ❤ for it).

During the first physical encounter between Grant and Chelsea, she was still recovering from roofie drugs given to her by one of the book’s bad guys. My ick flag was raised because at first I thought she was unconscious.

I don’t care if his bear was telling him that she is his mate, unconscious means unable to consent. Actually being under the influence of anything (including drugs and alcohol) mean no ability to adequately consent. He and his bear needed to wait until she sobered up before making any moves.
Chelsea made too many assumptions. I guess the author was trying to get the reader to sympathize with her because she was a victim of domestic abuse, but it backfired in my case.

Even though they have been semi-flirting for months, I still felt this was an insta-love story. She barely talked to him before and now in a matter of days, she loves him and wants to be his forever mate. It was too soon for me especially since she was not emotionally healed from her previous abusive relationship. I wish there was some indication that she was ready for a relationship instead of feeling like she was just looking for someone to protect her from the bad men in her life.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BORROW. I think that if this is a Kindle Unlimited book, it is worth picking up for the afternoon. I think it was free on Amazon when I got it. If you decide to buy, I would not recommend paying more than $ .99 for it. The box set might be worth buying though.
