Ridge Brothers Bear Shifters Series

Damon + Kinsley
Everett + Chloe
Cash + Zoe
Austin + Ellie

Each book is about 100 pages and follow a very similar format.

Bear gets whiff of mate and goes crazy to find her.
Predictably when he shifts back to human form, he’s naked but definitely unafraid.

Instalove is not my favorite because it takes away the romance. Shifter insta-love is supposed to remove the doubt that there will be a HFA.

There is no falling in love with the person for who they are. Its SNAP! You are in love because the universe said so. No matter that you just met. The characters do not know each other but “lets bone!” and “I love you forever”.

There was some age difference between most couples. The heroines were between 18-24 and the heroes were around 30 years old.

In the last book, Austin is 52 and Ellie is 18. I refused to read that book. I don’t care how much of a silver fox he is! I wanted to say, “Find a woman your own age Austin! Your soulmate was NOT born after your daughter.” And why does she have to be a virgin but he obviously did not wait for his soulmate. At least in the other stories, they were each other’s firsts. That made the stories more tolerable.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BORROW. The series was full of instalove and ridiculous situations but if you like bear shifter romances, you will find it entertaining. It is available on Kindle Unlimited.

A short story that can steam up some of your time

Just One Night (Decadence Creek): ♥ ♥ ♥


Chase owes a lot to Addison’s father since he helped him get his life together when he had a jail record. So he knows a relationship with Addison is out of the question.

If only she was not so desirable…

Two years ago, Chase turned Addison down when she wanted a relationship with him. With Addison back in town for a wedding, Chase’s self-control is not as strong. Addison is trying to come to terms with her attraction for Chase as well.


Since this was a short story, there was not much to review. The couple has history which is alluded to many times. It is the love-lost-the-first-time trope. Chase does not think he deserves someone like Addison even though it is obvious that he is head over heels in love. Addison has a way of breaking through his resolve. Overall, I liked how the story ended. Happy. It is great that the villains attempt to separate the couple backfires and results in them coming together. This is a very short novella and will probably take about an hour or less to read. Hence, the review is very short as well.

Note: the love scenes are steamy and there is some profanity (more than a few F – bombs)

If you do not mind steamy love scenes or profanity, this is really cute short story.
