Summary

Hands full taking care of his clan, the last thing Reid Carver needs is a woman poking her cute little nose into his affairs. But when Tammy refuses to back down - and shows the courage to stand up to him - he can't resist the allure of the curvy city girl. And when a rival clan thinks to use her to force his paw, he'll show them why you never piss off a Kodiak or threaten what's his.

Tammy is convinced that all men are scum, even gorgeous ones like Reid. She knows he's hiding something - something big. She just never expected a real bear hiding underneath all those yummy muscles. But when the truth comes out, and he tries to scare her off with a roar, she shows him that it's not just bears who have bite.

A Good Read

I was delighted to see Kodiak's Claim, which is part of the Kodiak Point Series, was now an audio having read the eBook. This is a really funny love story with a very interesting cast of characters including a Grandma Bear, a Moose, a Fox, more Bears and a few wolves plus a Human.

Tammy is a sassy BBW gal who doesn't take grief from boyfriends. The "I'm going to barbecue a steak" scene is hilarious. What was that man thinking?

Tammy is sent to Alaska to investigate an insurance claim and that's where her adventure really begins. There's an alpha bear who meets his city girl and, of course, his bear knows more than his human part. There's attraction, there's danger, there's even a really crazy guy, and, of course, there's love.

This book has a HEA ending and introduces the characters for the next book in the series - Outfoxed by Love. It's also nice to have the beautiful blond receptionist be a really nice person who knows how to take care of herself rather than being the "bad guy".

The narrator Chandra Skyye is very good. She's got the right kind of sass and she makes it easy to know which character is speaking. I've listened to her on several other audio books and she makes for a good audio experience.

Yummy smexy bear!!!

Oh man, I love grumpy bears!! This is great start to the series, which is sure to be a must buy!

Reid is deliciously Alpha and cluelessly male! He tries to fight the attraction, some silly shifter human no-no nonsense. Thank fully he just can not resist sassy curvy gal Tammy. I love their banter and the whole dynamic they share. Beware frying pans! LOL

The love comes fast here, but it is a true mates kind of thing, so I guess I buy into it. I can see it growing from the affection that is apparent and the combustible chemistry they share. There is plenty of hawt and heavy steam to get your engines revved!! Have a bowl of ice cream, a cold shower or your fella handy! Whoa mamma, things are definitely detailed and smexy!

The narrative is mixed giving you the POV of the leads as well as the bad guy. I am not sure about how awful he really is, something that might show itself later in the series. The side plot is a bit murky. I could see where things were headed, but they were too vague at times. I expect that is to keep suspense for things to come. I did enjoy the plot and the get together for the couple, it was just too short. I wanted more of the build for the resolution, maybe later.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Chandra Skyye, who was fabulous. I loved her energy through the read and the life she gave the characters. Her tone was perfect for delivering the snappy snarky dialogue. She kept the men just gruff enough to be real without going into the realm of caricature. Her pace is nice if you like to listen at regular speed, I like to punch things up to double, where things are still enjoyable. I will definitely be looking for more of her reads and hope she stays with the series.

I am so very thrilled to see this author in audio, because I really miss reading her books! I wish I had more ebook time, but now I only have to worry about how fast they will be recorded!

*** I hope this review was useful to you and helped your decision to read or not read this book. I love reading and sharing my opinions with other readers. I listen at double speed; all my impressions of the narration are from that setting. Thanks for taking the time to read my review!

Wonderful start to the series

This is book 1 of the series and is a stand alone book with an awesome HEA. One cubby girl and a Kodiak bear will take you on a funny and emotional adventure. Looking forward to the next book in the series. Happy listening.

oh hell yes

love this book I love this author and I love the fact that the main female character had curves just like me I hate that some of these books with female and male characters being very fit and the females being very fit but in these books it's okay to have curves and guys love women with curves so two thumbs up keep it up

basic but good

Here's how it goes. Girl: I'm from the city and demand respect for my authority, I'm fat and talk about my curves constantly. (which is fine but shouldn't be the defining character of a person)
Guy: I'm alpha and I'm a bear and live nowhere the end.

Bear and the City Girl

This is my first review.

Small town shifter romance with a predictable ending. Reid and Tammy start their adventure with a truck heist. The story is well written but missing a little bit of the extra something. Maybe it is the way the narrator had difficulties executing a growl, roar, or moan. Umh ... whatever the problem might be the overall feel of the story is lost with the narration.

I am glad I received this book as part of the Romance Package and did not have to use a credit to purchase it. It is worth the credit for fans of Ms. Langlais. I will listen to the rest of the series through Romance Package.

Alpha bear Reid meets City Girl Tammy

Love the world building and character development. Reid attempts to ignore the feelings he is having towards Tammy to no avail. Her being in extreme danger shakes him into realizing how lost he would be if she was not around. Tammy has deep feelings for Reid even if he is a Kodiak bear shifter. Good beginning to the series. Looking forward to book two.
