The Projects, 2
When Animal conservationist Emmi Layne meets bad boy Cole Jackson there is no denying the instant lust between them. She has a thing for bears, after all. However, you cannot build a relationship on awesome sex alone, especially when you live on different continents, and have nothing in common.
Everything changes when Emmi discovers that their night of passion has left her with more than erotic memories. She has no means of contacting him, even if she wanted to, but she hasn't counted on this bear shifter's determination.
Cole is not what he seems, and he will stop at nothing to claim what's his—even if that means breaking all the rules. Can he trust the mating bond to deliver, or will it spell the end of an ancient blood line? With the odds stacked against them, can this unlikely duo find happiness together?
Be Warned: rimming, spanking, anal sex, bondage
A moan slipped out from Emmi, and his balls drew tight in anticipation, as she, too, lost what cover his old shirt afforded her. She licked her lips, her gaze riveted on his erection, and he grinned. A primitive sense of ownership grabbed him, and he bent down, and grabbing her ankles, pulled her down the bed until her ass was half hanging off it and he could step right between her legs.
This position opened her cunt for his inspection, and her scent grew in potency as her juices coated her pussy lips. Cole stroked himself harder in response to that sight, and she whimpered. That tiny sound pitched his need to claim her to new heights, but he wanted her begging for his cock and so wet and ready that she couldn't stand it anymore.
A vision of keeping her like this, naked and at his mercy, filled his vision. Her curves would look so beautiful bound by Shibari rope, as she begged him for her orgasm.
His dick jumped at the thought, and he used the natural lubrication of his pre-cum to aid the ever faster up and downward glide of his hand.
"Cole, let me…"
Emmi looked up at him, her eyes so dark with her own need it took his breath away.
"No, I want to watch you come for me." A fierce blush spread all over her skin at his husky words, and she bit her lips hard enough to draw blood. The metallic smell filled his nostrils, and his bear roared. "Use your fingers to spread yourself wider, so that I can see what you're doing. Tell me what it feels like, and how much you want my cock, sugar."
Emmi shivered and closed her eyes, but her hands did slowly slide down to the apex of her thighs.
"Use your words, baby. I want to hear you."
"Oh God." Her groan matched his when she spread her labia wide and circled her clit with one finger. The little nubbin swelled under her ministrations as all the blood rushed to the surface.
"That's my girl. Fill your hole with your fingers, and imagine it's my cock, sugar."
Emmi complied, and the little needy sounds she made at the back of her throat were pure music to his ears.
"Words, Emmi, use them."
"I … I can't. I just … I want to come so badly. My fingers are not enough. I'm gripping them imagining they're your cock filling me, thrusting in. I want you so badly."
He growled, and she pumped her fingers faster until the wet sounds of her greedy pussy filled the room. The trembles started as her orgasm took hold, and Cole grabbed her thighs and took over.
Emmi screamed when his tongue replaced her fingers, and her essence flowed freely into his waiting mouth. His bear grunted his approval, and Cole blew against her slit and then bit down on her clit. The action sent Emmi over the edge, and he pushed two of his fingers into her clenching pussy hole. She rode those fingers as her whole body bowed off the bed and tightened before she slumped back down, moaning and writhing under his fingers and tongue.
Cole kept up his assault until the last tremors stopped and then crawled up her limp and sweat slicked body to kiss her.
"You're not playing fair." She mumbled the words and ran her hands over his chest, up to his shoulders and then down his back until she could reach his ass. With his body cocooned between her thighs, his cock slid up and down her wet slit and he indulged himself by thrusting into her just once.
Her cunt closed around him like a velvet fist, and Emmi pushed her feet into his calves and lifted up to meet his thrust. Their gazes locked when he pulled out and then pushed into her wet heat again.
"Oh, God, Cole, you're driving me insane."
His little human bucked against him, and her vaginal muscles clenched and released around his dick in an effort to hurry him along. It took all of Cole's willpower and self-control to not simply give her what she wanted, but he withdrew again until just the tip of his dick remained inside her entrance.
Emmi shook and groaned and pleaded, and he ground his teeth to stop himself form coming.
"No, we'll do this my way. Stop trying to hurry me, sugar, or I'll tie you to this bed and leave you hanging."
Her sharp intake of breath made him smile, and he paused half in half out of her sweet cunt, until he could nudge her sweet spot with short, shallow thrusts that had her luscious body climbing again. He could see it in the way her eyes clouded over, and her breathing quickened. Her fingernails scored his skin hard enough to draw blood, and Cole welcomed the slight pain, as he pushed her over that edge again.
"That's my girl. Come for me again. Beautiful."
He withdrew and flipped her over, so that she was bent over the side off the bed. With her knees on the floor, and her legs spread wide, her ass was there for him to play with, and Cole smacked one cheek and then pushed his fingers back into her vagina.
A rush of air escaped Emmi's lungs, and she groaned into the bed covers and lifted her ass up to give him better access.
Emmi is an animal conservationist from England on a bus tour in the US that detoured through the wrong town. She managed to miss getting back on the bus and is stranded in this strange town. Emmi is then rescued by Cole in a bar where she tried to drowned her sorrows. Emmi is a strong woman who reactions to Cole and the world of shifters is realistic. Cole is a bear shifter who was born into the shifter world. At the beginning of the book is very mysterious and does not reveal much until the end. Cole is a hot and sexy shifter who has looked forever for his mate but manages to meet her at the worst time. Cole is trying to clean up the town Emmi stumbled into. The chemistry between Cole and Emmi is blistering. The sex scenes were scorching. Emmi and Cole would not have had half of the issue they did if they communicated with each other. Cole was so set of Emmi being his mate he did not really take the time in the beginning to get to know her. Its no wonder she ran. The Bear Project is the second book in The Projects series by Dories O’Connor. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. I found this book very well written. The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic. The characters seemed to leap off the page and they also had genuine reactions as well. Overall, this was a great book and I can’t wait to read more from this series.
This book was a great paranormal romance. It a little bit of everything to keep me interested in the story from beginning to end. The book kicks off when Emmi gets stranded in a shifter town and ends up being rescued by a sexy grizzly shifter who just happens to be her mate. Things heat up rather quickly for these two and Cole ends up claiming Emmi in the heat of the moment, so to speak. Then morning came and the second guessing reservations set in for them both. Cole is keeping some big secrets, and this leads to misconceptions that jeopardize the mating bond. Alas, Emmi ends up running back home, only to find out their one night of trysting has lasting consequences. I liked a lot of things about this book. The plot was really good. It had plenty of surprise twists that kept me guessing about things. It was so well developed that it took me a while to realize that the book was actually part of an already ongoing series. The author did her job well, and it wasn’t hard to catch upat all. More to the point, the story was so well laid out that I didn’t feel like I had to catch up on anything, though I will be reading the book that I’ve missed as soon as possible. The characters were wonderful to read about. Cole was the perfect shifter hero, strong, sexy and possessive of his mate. I liked Emmi, though I felt that she accepted the shifter thing rather easily. The author thrilled me with the wonderfully descriptive love scenes and the graphic dialogue. She threw in plenty of naughty fun that included anal play, spanking and some light bondage. Lastly, the writing itself was excellent. All of these things combined to make this book a joy to read. I enjoyed this book immensely. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys sexy shifter books.
This is one of those hidden gems that comes out of nowhere and surprises you with how good it is. First off, some adjectives I would use to describe The Bear Project: INTENSE, scorching, obsessive, angsty, erotic. I had some conflicting emotions with this one. I almost felt guilty for enjoying it as much as I did, seeing as Cole is completely and overwhelmingly obsessed with Emmi from the very beginning and after their separation it only magnifies. It is magnified to the point where you ask yourself: If this was a real person, wouldn’t I be on the phone calling the cops to get a restraining order? I LOVE how the author mentions that in the book too. The author has totally mastered the line between alpha, possessive, macho hero. Despite my mixed feelings about Cole, in the end, I still loved the book because it was so dang good I couldn’t put this book down, didn’t skip one page out of disinterest, I had the characters and the story in my mind for days after finishing, and felt a variety of different emotions. In my opinion, that is the sign of a great book. Cole and Emmi together were so good together and I just rooted for them to get it right. I think it’s definitely worth your time and the price. I was expecting it to be a good book, but I had no idea it would be an incredible book that I couldn’t put down. This isn’t the first book I’ve read by the author and it certainly won’t be the last! Highly recommend!!
Yes, Emmi Layne, animal conservationist, took this tour in America with the hopes of seeing bears, but this is ridiculous. No way would she have ever imagined getting left behind by the tour bus, meeting a man she’s incredibly drawn to but who she doesn’t know and who is not the type of man she’s usually attracted to. He’s course, rough, and definitely a bad boy, but boy does he smell good. Plus there’s the little issue that he somehow turns into a bear. Despite all of that, they share an incredibly hot evening of sex but Emmi knows there’s no future and heads back home. When she finds out that their one night of chemistry has left her with more than memories, she’s not really sure what can be done since she doesn’t even know Cole’s full name let alone how to get in touch with him. Clearly, she’s never met a bear who’s intent on getting his mate back. But when all the secrets come out in the open, will there be a future for them? This was a really fun book to read. In the best ways, it’s your standard shifter story with all of my favorite parts. It has a wonderful alpha male, incredible sexual chemistry between Cole and Emmi and hot, hot sex scenes. Not to mention the mate-at-first-smell but how to tell the human dilemma, that in this case, provides some fun scenes. But it also has some great twists and turns that are all its own and totally enjoyable. Even the side characters are fun to read and intriguing. In fact, this is the second book in The Projects series and while it can easily be read alone, there were little glimpses of the characters from the first book that just makes me want to go back and read that book too.
If you like shifter stories then this is a great one. Cole is a bear shifter and Emmi is a human they meet in an usual way and forces beyond their control change both their lives forever. Fast paced book, but the plot has surprising twist and turns made up with great characters whom you instantly fall in love with! This is book 2 of the series so if you haven't yet, check The Orgasm Project out as well.

This book was packed with action, suspense and some really HOT sex scenes!! Cole and Emmi were definitely true mates! I'm glad that Emmi had Maria for a friend and was able to help her out. This was such a good story with so much going on I don't want to give it away except to say you need to read this book!
