Bear’s Pup (Rescue for Hire Book 1) Audiobook by Bellann Summer Narrated by Darcy Stark

bear's pupBlurb

Welcome to the world of Rescue for Hire. Meet the team members that make up a company that forms a family of heroes. Cade Miller is the owner of the company and is a dominating alpha in mind and body. Cade rescues Bret James on a mission. The instant connection between the two cannot be denied, and he decides to keep him. Bret may have submissive qualities that mesh completely with the big bear, but it is his mischievous side that keeps Cade on his toes and coming back for more. But Bret has evil stalking him.
When the past wants revenge, can Cade discover who has taken Bret and stop him from being a victim again? The team will have to use all of their skills to rescue Bret before all hell breaks loose. Because when the big, bad alpha is crossed, nothing will stop him from getting his pup back.


This is the introduction to the Rescue For Hire series. In it we meet the team and it’s team leader, Cade. Cade rescues Bret from an abusive boyfriend and immediately “claims him as his own.”

It’s sort of a D/s relationship but not by any sort of typical rules. Bret lets Cade make most of the decisions until he decides to throw a fit and then he gets his way.

In this book Bret is thrown into trouble at least three times, and Cade must rescue him in his super-alpha-badass way. Bret is teeny tiny and Cade is huge.

I love this series and love this couple, but it honestly isn’t my favorite in the series but it’s still so much fun!

Darcy Stark narrates the entire series (so far!) and I really like his interpretation of the alphas and their mates in these stories.

If you like a very sappy, sometimes OTT romance where the alpha does a lot of rescuing but is in turned cowed by his partner – with a small element of D/s – this is right up your alley and I highly recommend it.
