Well it is Tuesday and I am suffering from a bad case of allergies so what do I do .I read a whole book this morning yes a whole book and it was a good one . LAID BEAR 2 the Kodiak clan by Marina Maddix
From New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Marina Maddix
Curvy bear shifter Veronica Muir is ready for a new mate. It's been six long and lonely years since her husband was killed, leaving her to raise rambunctious twin cubs on her own. And wouldn't you know it, the first time she dips her toe into the dating world, she ends up falling head over heels in love…with a human.
Marine biologist Jess Slade is still raw from his divorce when he spots Veronica's online profile. Unable to resist her luscious curves, he takes a second chance on love by moving to her hometown of Kodiak, Alaska. But the one thing he doesn't know about her might be the one thing he can't get past.
When a group of human-hating werebears called The Brotherhood threaten to tear them apart — quite literally — Jess and Veronica, with a little help from Max and Bethany, must decide where their loyalties lie and if their love is worth fighting for.
This is book two in the series. Veronica Muir is a werebear with a set of cubs to look after. After her husband is murdered just before the boy's arrival. She starts up a relationship with Jesse. a marine biologist. Who is also human. They flirt on line and finally decide to meet. but there are things that will keep them apart besides her being a werebear. Will they get to be together or will the past and the secrets pull them apart before they are truly together.
This is a great continuation to the Laid bear series, but it also can be a stand alone book . You get to meet new characters and get reacquainted with the characters from book one. Max and Bethany are back and expecting their first cub. As Veronica is in contact with them via their matchmaking website. I loved Max ad Bethany in the first book. They don't disappoint in book two either. Veronica is one feisty woman also. She knows what she should do but the clan will shun her. But like any woman she is torn between what she wants to do as follow her hear, and what is good for the clan. Just don't come between this momma bear and her cubs . She will hurt you bad.
Marina's writings is to the point and flows great. She goes for your heart with every word she writes. The characters are so well written , you can feel the anger and the passion between them. The book gets hot when Jess and Veronica meet for the first time, the tension is so intense. You want to jump Jess right there and then. He is one hot human. Veronica is written with such ease. She is a normal mom trying to keep two , six year olds from killing each other. She has curves and is so down to earth. You want her as your best friend. That is another reason why Marina's books are so good. They are about normal women with curves and a little self doubt but end up being the one the hot guy wants and loves. They pull on the inner beauty to realize that even with the curves and the two kids . She is desirable and wanted and loved There is some mystery that goes along in this book. like Bethany going missing after an agreement with Max. Well one of many arguments and hormones that are raging through Bethany as she muddles the last stages of pregnancy I will recommend this book as a stand alone or as part of the series. If you want to know more about how Bethany and Max come together read book one. And then read this book. These will be a great summer read while sitting at the pool or just relaxing . So give them a try I say you won't be disappointed
