Wild Bear (Rescue Bears Book 2) By Scarlett Grove

Fate Mountain Shifters - Wild Bear - final


Handsome Hunky Troubled Bear Shifter

A Fated-Mate Left Behind

Can Love Prevail

Book 2 Of The Bear Rescue Series




Shane Keenan, grizzly bear shifter, world-famous chef and member of the Bear Rescue Team, is a troubled bear with little control over his bear.  He has run from his troubled past, his fated-mate whom he knew from childhood, and life.


After serving in the human war, he spent a year in bear form in a cave.  Now is he head chef for Levi at Fate Mountain Lodge.  On a lark he fills out the Mate.com match form and of all things, his fated-mate is a match.  Shane has known she was his fated mate for a long time as they grew up together.


Single mother, Lily, is working a low paying job for a mean, obnoxious, bigoted, employer.  She lives with her son in a run down apartment, owns a wreck of a car, and does the best she can for her part-shifter grizzly bear son, Theo.


On the off-chance she can find help from a male shifter in raising her son, she applies to Mate.com.  The only problem is she knows her fated-match.  He is the love of her life and he works at Fate Mountain Lodge as head chef.


Come along with Shane and Lily as they traverse highs, lows, and problems as they journey to love.  It is a wonderful journey.



Ms. Grove created characters scarred from their troubled abusive childhoods.  Shane and Lily grew throughout the story. You will follow the back story of these two troubled people as they come to terms with their past, life, and each other to finally reach the summit of life and love.  Ms. Grove’s story-line was not an easy climb for Shane and Lily.


The plot was well done and the pacing never bogged down, lagged, or slowed.  This book is filled with emotion and action. A crisis in the story-line will force Shane to face his bear.  Will he gain the control he has never had over his bear?  You will have to read the book to find out, no spoilers.


The attraction between Lily and Shane is explosive, hot, and steamy.  The sex scenes are vivid and leap off the pages.  The book does not depend on sex to sell the story-line.  It is not sex for sex’s sake, but love between two fated-mates.


This was an easy read which includes characters from the previous book as we follow the Rescue Bear Team through life and love.  I look forward to the next book in this series.  I can’t wait until Ms. Grove pens Angus story.



This book will appeal to anyone that enjoys a well written paranormal shifter romance novel.  I recommend this book to young adults and adults due to explicit sexual content and language.

I received this book from the author in return for an honest book review.

Book reviews of any novel are dependent on the book review author’s opinion;  book reviews on line  and on my blog, are my opinion.
