Mark Bruner is a bear caught in the middle. While Mark has always harbored feelings that his father’s ancient clan might consider abhorrent, he’s been able to keep them in check for years in order to better serve his family’s needs. But, in the fallout of his brother’s ill-timed actions, the clan’s financial empire begins to crumble, and Mark finds himself with a plane ticket to Mumbai. Once aboard, he can’t help but be shaken up by the tattooed shifter in a nearby seat and those long-repressed feelings threaten to reemerge.
Zeke Kaplan isn’t like most tigers. Where any other tiger would prefer to roam wild and run free, Zeke has been desperately searching for the mate he knows can calm his inner-beast. So when he catches the eye of a weary-eyed bear with a chip on his shoulder, Zeke knows he’s found the one. Convincing the sexy and broad-shouldered giant, however, turns out to be more than a little challenging.
As Mark and Zeke’s forbidden romance buds, an old and dangerous enemy rears his head once more, threatening to destroy everything they’ve come to hold dear. When flight no longer remains an option, Mark and Zeke must fight back or lose each other forever. Can they overcome a force that would see them dragged into eternal dismay, or will they have to face a harsh truth and realize that sometimes romances should remain forbidden?
This is a lovely sequel to Striped and Bear. In Striped and Bear we saw a Bear who wanted to roam and now we have a Tiger who wants to nest.
The couple meets on the plane to Mumbai – not knowing they are going to the same place – and realize they are mates – but fighting the attraction.
When they part ways at the airport they don’t expect to see one another again so they’re shocked to run into each other at Zeke’s brother’s house.
There’s a fight to be together that results in a delightful HEA and we get to check up on our previous MCs who are now expecting!
I love these two books and the narration by Gus Klondike is just perfect! He does the emotion so well and I love his pacing and voice quality. He does a nice job with the voices and making the listener feel like they’re part of the story.
Highly recommended for fans of shifter romance!
