There are few things that are off limits to the were-bears of Pine Falls, but humans are one of them. Which is a real pain, because I’ve had it bad for curvy Adelaide Laurent ever since she sashayed into town. The fact that she’s forbidden fruit just makes my fantasies all the sweeter.
But when she signs up to go on a weekend camping trip with the town’s biggest player, it’s time for a bear to step in and claim his mate.
I don’t care if it breaks the rules. She’s mine, and it’s time she knew it.
Shift Out of Luck by Ruby Dixon is a fun short erotic romance story and book one in her brand-new shifter series, Bear Bites, and I am happy to say it is off to a hot and sexy start.
Cole Braxton has been obsessed with Adelaide Laurent for three years since she first came to Pine Falls. A bear-shifter who has found his mate, Cole wants no other woman but Adelaide. However, because he’s afraid of physically hurting her since she’s human, he’s kept his distance.
However, when Adelaide decides to go on a camping tour into the woods with the town’s biggest player, he’s not willing to let her go.
Things then begin to heat up between the two main characters and the story takes off from there (though Cole does make things harder than they need to be especially with his worries, but he makes up for it in the end).
As a reader, I love how Ms. Dixon includes both characters POVs, so we get not only the heat from the detailed lovemaking, but also the emotion. Furthermore, I really liked Adelaide as a heroine. She’s confident, bold and not afraid to take charge, even sexually, especially when it means getting her man.
Also, another thing I enjoy about Ms. Dixon’s books is how well-written her stories are and how her supporting characters always have as much personality as the main characters. Leo Prufuchs is charming (albeit a playboy) and funny. He really stood out even for the little bits he appeared. I hope he gets his own story.
If you’re a fan of Dixon’s Bedlam Butchers MC and Ice Planet Barbarians, you’ll enjoy her new series. Shift Out of Luck is definitely a must read.
