The 3rd novella in the Bear Bites series is my least favorite so far. The writing is fine but the content is not something that I’ve been a fan of – that whole ‘Daddy’ and ‘baby girl’ thing… yeah, no. The young human Ryann Brown’s had a thing for Standard since she was 17. At the ripe ole age of Almost-21 to his 39, she knows who she wants and she’s not waiting around for him to notice her. Mal Standard’s had a thing for the youthful Ryann since she came into town when she was 17, but he’s not done anything about it because he basically feels like a dirty old man (I agree with his self assessment).
Like I said, the formula for this one wasn’t my cup-a-tea but if you like that sort of thing, you might like this one too. The chemistry between Ryann and Mal is strong. There’s some angst from both (because we get both POV’s) and that makes for some interesting reading. We get to see more and more residents of the town, including some references to Leo (book 2). But what might keep you interested is to learn the Mal isn’t even a typical good looking guy; he’s a big brute of a guy who’s got some self esteem issues and he’s a loner to boot. What’s a girl to do to get her guy? You might be surprised…
As this is so short, there’s not much to tell without giving away the entire plot, but if you like the series so far, don’t skip this one because of my ‘Daddy’ issues.
Happy Reading Folks!
