Description from the publisher:
(Complete story, no cliffhangers!) Anna Brentwood isn't your average fox. She’s smart, sassy, plus-size, and stubborn. The rare red moon is coming and Anna is afraid her primal urges will betray her, like Matt Stryker once did. He shattered her heart, leaving her to pick up the pieces alone.
Matt knows Anna is his chosen one, and will do anything to get back in her good graces. Anna is his only need and he’ll do whatever it takes to win her over. Only Bunny St. James, local reporter and sexy rabbit, has other plans for Matt. She’s had her eyes on Matt for longer than she’s willing to admit.
Can Anna and Matt find love again? Or will Bunny’s wicked scheming change everyone’s fate? When Matt’s bear comes out, his primal beast must decide what he truly wants and needs. His human knows…but his bear will make the final decision. Seductive pleasures await you in a heated romance. “Taming a Bear: Not Your Average Fox” is a BBW shape shifter romance story that will captivate your imagination and enchant your heart. (Complete short story...No cliffhanger)
3 CROWNS – very good BBW shifter story
This is the first book in the Red Moon Seduction series. It does stand alone, but there is obviously a back-story that is not fleshed out. I hope that reading further into the series more of the back-story will be provided.
The story is short and very sweet. Anna believes that Matt has cheated on her. Matt can’t tell her the truth, but asks her to believe him when he says that she is his chosen mate. Anna must choose between her pride and her passion, her head or her heart.
I enjoyed the story, but I was frustrated that the “mission” was never clarified. Why couldn’t Matt tell his mate about his true job? Kia and Bunny can pursue their relationship without losing their jobs, but Matt can’t? I think the story would be improved if these questions were answered within.
Given this is her freshman offering, I would be glad to read more from Ms. Bryce to see her maturation as a writer.
