About the Book:
From USA Today bestselling author Kathy Lyons comes a sexy new enemies-to-lovers shifter romance.Hard-bodied and military-trained shifter Hank Coleman will always do what's best for the clan. With a mysterious virus ravaging the city and transforming anyone with shifter DNA into dangerously unstable hybrids, that means asking a human scientist for help. Hank knows that getting Dr. Cecilia Lu involved will mean exposing the shifter world and his black bear self, but it's the animal attraction that sparks between them that could be the real danger.

Cecilia trusts data and what she can see with her own two eyes. So when the hottest man she's ever met transforms into a bear right in front of her, she has no choice but to accept that shifters are real. And with hybrids attacking humans and shifters turning on their own kind, Hank and Cecilia have zero time to fight the desire that's burning hotter by the minute. But war is brewing between the shifters, and Cecilia will be forced to choose between the world of men . . . and the world of her sexy beast.

My Review:
I do not tend to get excited about shifter stories, but I like this author and decided to give Bound to the Bear a shot when I saw it was available on NetGalley.  What I did not notice was that it was Book 5 in the series, but quite frankly, it didn't matter.  Kathy Lyons was able to provide enough background information, without making it tedious, to make the book flow.  It may possibly have been even better if I had read the previous books, and I may go back to do that now that I have read this one.

What I truly liked about this book, as compared to other books of this type, was that the author took us deep into the thoughts and emotions of the shifter.  Hank really did not want to kidnap Dr. Cecilia Lu, but he knew it was necessary.  Then, when his need for Cecilia became strong, he fought an inward battle to slow down his need to bond with her.  Wow! Talk about sexual tension! I also loved Cecilia's personality. What a great character!

The fight scenes between the werewolves, hybrids and shifters was totally awesome!

My Rating:

About the Author:
Kathy Lyons is the fun, contemporary side of USA TODAY bestselling author Jade Lee. She loves sassy romance with lots of laughter and sex. Spice is the variety of life, right? Okay, so maybe two kids, two cats, two pennames, and writing over 50 books has messed with her mind, but she still keeps having fun.

Or hang out with her sexy historical half, Jade Lee. Titled heroes with dark secrets are Jade's passion. Especially when they fall for women who add more than just spice to their lives.
