Warning: These bears are more than cuddly!

I really enjoy series where each book is standalone but the reader gets to revisit characters and build a sense of community. This box set was perfect for that. One after the other, the Swanson brothers fall inline with their mates and with the Bearpaw Ridge Community. It is hard not to like each and every one of them, even the slightly uptight matriarch of the clan (who happens to be their Mum), Elle.

I thoroughly enjoyed these audiobooks. Best part is that there is another box set from the series - woo hoo! I don't think I was quite ready to say bye to Bearpaw Ridge and its volunteer firefighters!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this series. Narrator was really good. Great voice for narrating. and did a wonderful job of changing voices to suit the characters. The stories are good and not predictable which is great. I am really glad I got this series.

scrumptious!

I love these books, and it's so wonderful to have all 6 of the first books available in audio for 1 credit!! The author has a really good grasp of small town life and the characters who live there, plus the ability to keep a reader riveted on the story, because of the dangers the characters get into, whether personal, or community, or because of the setting--which is a fun small town (just the right size for getting lost in the pages). I highly recommend these books, and this author!

Excellent buy & attempted diversity

Excellent value of paranormal shifter stories. 37 hours of entertainment of Swan family (bear shifters) members finding love.. The author sprinkled in the story a mention of an Asian male doctor from India and an another Asian American medical professional along with a male latino shifter (enforcer) & a brief mention of a black male in background of the story not related to any of the main characters BUT.... This reviewer appreciated the mention... Most stories are usually filled with all anglo characters. Even if there are scenes in jails, courts, grocery stores, airports or hospitals.. Paranormal or not there is NEVER mentioned of characters of non anglo characters. OR females over 40 y.o... This author did a great job on both fronts. Two older females find love again which made me cry.. Bravo!!!!! And the author mention other characters of different skin tones/races/ethnics.. YEAH.. Especially, that 90% of the earth's population is of Asian descent (non anglo) I enjoyed following the shifter bear family & appreciate the value of the box set. I immediately bought the NEXT box set offered.. This middle aged woman of color STRONGLY suggest this box set is worth the buy & credit.. AGAIN.. GREAT job Ophelia Sexton.. I will add you to my "keep an eye on the author" page.. thumbs up

Worth the credit

I really enjoyed this book set. It was well worth the credit. I like that all of the stories were about the same family so you got to hear about the previous characters. There were times when I laughed out loud and times that I was near tears. The narrator was good and I could tell which character was speaking.

Entertaining, but not worth the credit.

I do wish I had waited to check this one out until it was free.

Nothing awful here, but, just not worth the money (in my personal opinion). The narration is generally okay except for the love scenes which are unfortunately acted like a novice sex-line operator.

There are other writers of Shifter romance/erotica you might enjoy more; Lisa Ladew comes to mind.

The author has skill at crafting stories- I liked the characters enough to feel invested in what happened to them.

Couldn’t bear to put this series down!

Just ordered the next set so excited to see the stories continue! Feel in love with this whole family each has their own story not just repeats like some I’ve listened too.

Shifter fans will love these little stories

Audiobook review - Both box sets are full of classic PNR romance tales. Shifter families finding their fated mates, feeling accepted and building a community. If you are a shifter fan, you'll like these family-centric, low heat, insta-love tales with memorable characters.
