Summary

When two rivals fall for the same woman, she must make a choice that will shape the future of their clan.

Bailey has given up on ever finding love. So when her best friend sets her up on a blind date, she’s more than just a little skeptical. But all doubt is pushed aside after she meets Jaxon, a bear shifter who is everything she could ask for - strong, handsome, and kind.

But Jaxon has a rival for leadership of his clan, another bear shifter named Levi who is thrilling and mysterious with an air of danger that draws Bailey in. Levi also becomes a rival for Bailey's affections. She tries to resist him, but the allure is too strong.

Things become even more complicated when she discovers the two of them have a romantic history. With passions on the rise, they find themselves tangled up in a vicious battle for leadership and Bailey. The winner takes all, and the loser gets nothing.

But when Bailey’s heart won’t accept anything less than both of them, what can she do as long as the two remain divided over their past?

This is a stand-alone story with an HEA and MF, MM, and MMF pairings.

Bearly Rivals is the first book in the Bears of Southoak series. Bearly Rivals is a fast, steamy listen that builds the story and ratchets up the tension. I like that this story went to unexpected places and had a few twists and turns throughout.

I received this audiobook for free. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Which one to choose??

I enjoyed this story. I wish we would have had more all together time. Things all came together to close to the end of the story. Bailey has to pick between two bear shifters and she doesn't want to pick. She dates them both and wants them both. The narration was great. No Cheating. No cliffhanger. MM. MF. MMF. I recommend this book.

Both males want to be the Leader of the pack, to be the leader/boss there are a few ways that they to get it. They Will fight till the death, or the one that looses the fight will be shunned from the clan or born into the position.

Sexy Bears!

Two rival helpful affairs and one beautiful woman and this makes an epic story. This is a BBW and MMF romance all in one. She wants both, but they are in a turf war over the bear clan. There is also a past relationship between the bears that also plays a part on who should she pick. This was a great quick listen.

Steamy

If you enjoy shifter romance and MMF you’ll love this short story. For only being a couple of hours long, it’s certainly packed full. I enjoyed the storyline and the thrown in second chance love along with their new love. This is a great series starter and the narrative was great.

Good listen

Short enjoyable story. Felt a bit rushed towards the end and I wish there was an epilogue. Maybe we will get more with these characters. I enjoyed the story and thought the narrator did a good job with the characters.

Nice short story

This story kept my attention. Bailey goes on a blind date with Jaxon and has a great time. She ends up spending the night in his guest room. The next morning he has a family emergency so he has to leave before she is up. As she is leaving, she finds Levi going through Jaxon's office and making a mess. They end up talking and she leaves with him, thinking she would have a design job at his house. Both Jaxon and Levi are in competition for the role of clan leader. There is an interesting turn of events near the end of the book. There is a MM scene that some may find disturbing.

Gary Bennett did a good job with the narration. I was given this free copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Fun and Sexy Bear Shifters and MMF story!

This was my first Kayci Morgan's book. This is the first book in the Bears of Southoak Series, a bear shifters and MMF story. Bailey, Jaxon and Levi shared a sizzling chemistry. I like their story. The secondary characters are great. This is a fun and sexy/hot story. I like the twist and the happy ending. Gary Bennett did a great job with the narration. I recommend it if you like shifters and MMF stories. I loved it!

Nope.

I have no use for Bailey’s character (or lack thereof). She’s just not a like-able person, so I was distracted by wanting both of the guys to get away from her and find someone with depth. Maybe more character development would have helped. Narration was good though.

Why

I previously read book 3 in the series so I'm very biased. Levi is an evil manipulative weakling. Jasmine is a gem. I didn't like Bailey's decision AT ALL. Pick again. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator was good.

Excellent short story

New love/second chance at love, which becomes a steamy triangle, but not without its animosity and intrigue in the dynamic which hopefully is ironed out into a smooth transition and an HEA.
Gary did a wonderful job with the narration.

Short and steamy

This was a good short and steamy story but I felt it could have been better. Maybe if it was a little longer you would feel a stronger connection between the characters.

Wow I loved listening to this story!

Mrs. Morgan is a new to me author, but her story didn't disappoint, I loved Bailey, Jaxon and Levi's story so much. I don't usually read this harem type of stories but I loved how the story flowed with the three characters and I can't wait to listen to the next book in this series!

Great Paranormal story!

This book is a love triangle (MMF). This is definitely an enjoyable read. It’s definitely well written and narrated. The one thing I would have liked was a little more back story, but all in all still a great story. This is a short shifter story that will have you changing your mind again and again whom you want to root for.
The narrator does a fabulous job with the characters and voices of each character. He definitely brings out the emotions in the characters.
This is the first book/ story that I have listen to by both this author and narrator and they are fantastic!

Light MMF. #Audiobookobsessionreview

This is my first book by this author and I’m happy I took the chance. I really enjoyed the storyline. I actually think this story would’ve been even better if given a darker tone due to the conflict and chemistry between the alpha males. I will definitely look for the next in the series. And the narration was great. I will seek out more of his work as well. If you’re looking for a fun, short MMF, this is for you!
