Koda's found his sister, Winnie, and now he's made a life for himself in Gray Ridge, Colorado. As a bear shifter, he's naturally a loner, and with so few females around, he's resigned to never finding his mate. But when he stumbles upon a woman in the woods, his whole world changes.

Snow's been on the run and has made a makeshift family with a band of seven wanderers. While resting in the woods and waiting for them to come back, something big finds her.

When Koda and Snow collide, they realize their stories are woven together more tightly than they could have imagined. Will the truth break their mates bond? Or will it bind them closer together?

Warning: This fairy-tale shifter story is full of alpha sweetness with a side of growly bear. What's not to love?! If you love a classic story with a dirty twist, then get your click on!

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

EDGy Review

Reviewed Sparkles 1When the prince in your fairytale is a growly, possessive and bordering on (who am I kidding) completely obsessed bear shifter you just can’t go wrong.

After escaping from a mad scientist’s facility where he was caged, prodded and mistreated, Koda has been left with an understandable reluctance to be out in the open. After finding his sister, he settled in Gray Ridge to be close to her but has nointention of mingling with other people unless absolutely necessary.


After escaping from her father, Snow has been living with seven wolf shifters for the last several years. When they get to Gray Ridge, Snow decides to finally venture out of the house by herself.

Snow was sweet and caring and after taking care of a bunch of shifters since she was little, she just wanted a family of her own. She was haunted by the actions of her father that led her to run and I felt that in a way she wanted to atone for his sins. I liked her well enough, though I felt she could’ve had a bit more personality.


Koda was all growly craziness and I loved him. When we learn what he went through it was no surprise he was reluctant to interact with humans, but the mating call is not something you can choose to ignore. I liked that he struggled a bit with the concept of his mate being human but that it was not really a problem after a couple of seconds. 

I wish there was a little more exploration of their pasts as we began to realize they had more in common than they first thought. There’s a mention of a memory in Koda’s case that I think could have been expanded on, making for a richer story. Still it was a good story with an adorable couple and perfect epilogues (yes, there are two of them, and that made me very happy).
