I love Jenika Snow's books and adore shifter books. This was the best of both worlds. Truly enjoyed it, love the alpha bear Charlie. Looking forward to the rest of the series
Wylde Bears, 1
February “Ary” Felina, an ocelot shifter with a weight complex, knows going out on her dirty thirty birthday is a bad idea, especially when she ends up in Charlie Wylde’s bed. The big, powerful alpha bear shifter is known in the town of Sweet Water for never having the same female twice. But that one-night stand turns into a disaster when the condom breaks.
When Charlie sees Ary for the first time he wants her. The bear in him needs to mark and claim her until everyone knows she is his. When she tells him she is pregnant and he’s the father, he has no choice but to step up and take care of her and his baby. It was only supposed to be that one night of pleasure, so when a jackal shifter comes sniffing around her, can Charlie show him that a bear always takes care of what’s his?
Be Warned: rimming, spanking
“You’re a greedy little thing.” There was nothing but strained heat in his words, and she prayed he didn’t get off on torturing her. As nice as that sounded she wanted to be fucked good and hard, and right now.
Looking over her shoulder she narrowed her eyes. The feline in her unsheathed her claws. She didn’t know how bears fucked, but her cat wanted it now. She was done with this teasing bullshit. His lips twitched, and she knew he thought this was just too funny. She was still good and intoxicated, but coherent enough that she wasn’t going to back down. Lifting her ass, which caused the tip of his dick to slide partially into her pussy, had his jaw clenching and a soft moan spilling from her.
“Just shove that big dick in my pussy. That’s why I’m here, right?” Where in the hell had that come from? She blamed the alcohol and her hormones for the fierce fire that came from her.
A flicker of emotion passed over his face, but it was gone as soon as it arrived. She didn’t know what he was trying to hide, but she knew her words had sparked something inside of him. A glance down at where he held onto her hips showed his own claws had come out. It wasn’t unheard of for some shifters to partially turn into their inner animals during extreme emotions. The very thought of Charlie’s bear coming out, even if it was just his claws, had her pussy moistening to the point that wetness slipped down her inner thighs. She tried again to push herself back on his shaft, but he tightened his hold on her.
“I don’t know what kind of males you fucked back in the day, but bears are the ones in control.” He reared his hand back and slapped her ass hard enough that her flesh stung something fierce. “I fuck you, not the other way around. Do you understand, Kitten?” He spanked her again, and she closed her eyes in bliss. The alpha in him called out to her, and she wanted to do whatever he said. Her past lovers had never been like this, and that sent a wave of delicious ecstasy through her. Charlie liked to be in control, and she wanted him to use that dominance on her.
She licked her lips. “Yeah, I understand.” They stared at each other for several seconds, and the only warning she got before he took her completely was his nails digging into her flesh. He shoved all of those hard, thick inches into her, and she cried out in pleasure/pain. Never had she felt so stretched, so full, so totally taken with only one thrust. Her inner muscles clenched along his length, and he grunted.
“You keep doing shit like that and I won’t last ten fucking minutes inside of you.” She breathed out and rested her head on the back of the couch. Her legs were spread as wide as they could go, and she knew he had a prime shot of her asshole and pussy. He let go of her waist and spread her cheeks so wide she knew he was watching his cock move in and out of her body.
Bared for Her Bear is the first book in the Wylde Bears series by Jenika Snow. I chose this book because I enjoy reading shifter novels a lot. In addition, I have enjoyed every book I have ever read by Ms. Snow. February Felina, or best known as Ary is an ocelot shifter who just turned thirty has a weight complex. Ary knows celebrating her thirtieth birthday with her friends is going to be a bad idea but she goes anyway and ends up in a bear shifter’s bed. Charlie Wylde is a bear shifter that up until meeting Ary moved from woman to woman looking for his mate. Charlie freaks when he realizes the condom breaks sending both Ary and Charlie in opposite directions. Now days later, he is obsessed with Ary and he is starting to realize she is his mate. Now how does he convince her? The chemistry between Charlie and Ary is scorching. I enjoyed that both Charlie and Ary were honest with not just there attraction to each other but as the story progresses their feelings with each other. The sex scenes were hot and spicy. The only thing I would have loved was if it was a bit longer in some places like the scenes where Charlie and Frank have it out. I did find this book well written with characters that were realistic and engaging. Overall, this was a great novel and I can’t wait to read more from this series in the future.
Loved this! A bear shifter and an ocelot together? Who would have thought! I love the fact that "Ary" is portrayed as a real women with actual curves and some weight on her, she is something else! I love Charlie, even though he is a strong dominant man I love that he has some sensitive areas and is insecure when it comes to his feelings for Ary. The supporting characters are also interesting and I hope to see how they play out in the future installments. All in all this is an excellent book about shifters and lust and love. Jenika Snow is an excellent writer and look forward to reading more!!!
February "Ary" Felina came to the bar with her two friends to celebrate her 30th birthday, but also to celebrate her freedom from Frank, her jerk of an ex-boyfriend. Frank had whittled Ary's confidence down to practically nothing with his comments on her weight and calling her names in front of his friends. What better way to celebrate that to take what Charlie, the eldest Wylde brother, has been offering since he walked in the door. After a bit of alcohol Ary works up her courage to walk over to the most tempting morsel she could ever imagine. Charlie's bear has been clawing to get out since he first scented the little ocelot shifter. All he can think about is getting her to himself and enjoying themselves to the fullest. When problems arise and they part neither can forget the other. When Charlie finally decides to act and allow his bear to go after its mate it may be too late. After a long run of bad choices up to and including the jackal shifter Frank's verbal abuse and Charlie's actions after the best lovemaking Ary has ever had Ary is wondering why anyone would want to be with her. This short novella is filled with hot, steamy love scenes with a touch of suspense and drama. You will enjoy it from start to end. The only objection I found was that Ms. Snow seemed a bit more excessive with her strong language than usual. It will not stop me for getting the next two books in this series about the Wylde Brothers. She still has a story line that is well established and makes you want to know what becomes of the other characters.
Ary is an ocelot shifter coming off a bad relationship with a man who made her doubt her worth, then enter wild and sexy Charlie Wylde on her birthday. She just wants a wild night to feel sexy and forget about her ex, and Charlie is definitely on board for giving her what she wants. They had an instant connection that they both fight tooth and nail. The extra complication of the condom breaking during their crazy night throws them together. I don’t usually love stories that have a pregnancy as the reason that the main characters get together and stay together but it really worked with this story. The way the author sets it up, you never doubt that they first and foremost love each other. It’s a shifter story so there is a bit of insta-love but with a little suspension of belief this is a great and very sexy story. The author can definitely write a sex scene that was very creative. I really recommend this story, it’s hot, sweet, and just the right length to read in one sitting one afternoon.
February, a.k.a Ary, an Ocelot shifter, is on the bad end of a horrible relationship which cost her some of her confidence, but she will recover. When the Wylde Bears walk in the door she determines, after several shots of whiskey, Charlie Wylde is the perfect man to have one night with. Charlie is happy with his life until a sexy Ocelot approaches him and knocks his world off kilter. He is unable to imagine a day where he will not want Ary and knows she is the one for him. The one night originally planned turns into something more. Charlie approaches her for another date, but will he still want one when Ary gives him her news? I picked up my reader and by the time I was on page 16 I seriously became concerned it would melt. The eroticism contained within the pages of Bared for Her Bear is off the charts. I found every page as enticing as the finest chocolate and was unable to stop at just one read. I went back and read the book all over again because the writing of Ms. Snow is just that outstanding. I highly recommend any of Ms. Snow's books because she has talent beyond anything I can imagine so why not start with Bared for her Bear which is the first in the Wylde Bear series and become hooked like me. - See more at: http://coffeetimeromance.com/BookReviews/baredforherbearbook1byjenikasnow.html#.UpicrOjnZdh
It might have been a bad idea, but really all it was supposed to be was a one night stand. But who would have figured the stupid condom would break and ruin a perfect night of sexual pleasure? Now February “Ary” Felina, who is an ocelot shifter, finds she is pregnant by one of Sweet Waters’ sexiest and wickedest bear shifters, Charlie Wylde, who prides himself on never having the same woman twice. Charlie and his bear are blown away by the sexy Ary. Charlie the man wants to have his wicked way with her and his bear wants his mate. He wants to mark the lovely Ary as his. The condom breaking is a really bad thing. Or is it? Can one night of pleasure become a lifetime of love for these two lovers? The very talented Jenika Snow has another winner on her hands with Bared for Her Bear, the first book in her new series about the Wylde Bear brothers of Sweet Water. No matter what genre she is writing in, this author writes simply irresistible stories that satisfy and delight readers earning for pleasure, passion and romance. In Bared for Her Bear, the author displays her deliciously wicked sense of humor with the dialogue between Ary and her two best friends that is funny and can be highly appreciated for its female charm. The sparks definitely fly the first time Charlie and Ary’s eyes meet across the crowded bar. The chemistry between Charlie and Ary sets the pages on fire with their sensual connections. Their sizzling hot sex scenes will have the reader fanning their face from the heat as these two lovers do the horizontal mambo. Bad boy Charlie lives life by his own rules and he is big, bad and strong enough to take what he wants. But there is a softer side to him where Ary is concerned that is compelling and touching. Ary is a treat and a heroine that most readers can really relate to. She is turning thirty, she just recently kicked her no good boyfriend to the curb, and she has insecurities with her weight that makes her skittish when it comes to the opposite sex. She would never think of a one night stand but with the help of a little alcohol, Ary finds the daring woman that is strong and determined enough to grab the pleasure she deserves. Readers will laugh-out-loud and sigh with pleasure as she rocks Charlie’s world. I can’t wait to see what’s next for the Wylde brothers!
I really love some sexy bear shifters!!! Yummy brawny grumps!! They are easily my favorite shifters/paranormals and I will read anything with them! Charlie is delicious and Ary is really sweet, if not a touch low on self esteem. I really like this pair and was very happy with them getting together. They had a little bit of a journey to make everything work. The story here is really enjoyable but it felt like it was on fast forward at times. I like to see the romance develop and have those sweet moments. Much of that was glossed over and the people they were in the Epilogue was different from who they were throughout the book. I would have loved to see more of that growth. And instead of telling me about phone calls and wooing, I would love to see it happen. The steam here was off the charts!! I am talking loads of yummy action all over the house!!! Girl, this was some smexy steam!! There seemed to be way more to the steamy chapters than the romance but it was delicious!! Seriously, you might want to read this book while in a cold shower, don't ask how you can manage that feat. I am definitely hooked on Ms Snow and will be dedicating stalking time to her!
Charlie and Ary meet on her 30th birthday. They are a great couple. Charlie is really there for Ary when she needs him. Charlie takes care of his brothers and defends Ary from her nasty ex. It was such a sweet story and I can't wait to see what happens with Charlie's brothers.
