For vet and animal whisperer Charli Avers, talking to bears is all in a day’s work. But when she finds a man—a very sexy, veryalpha man—where a bear ought to be, the wild comes close to home. Charli is drawn to this mysterious stranger. She wants to help him piece together the past he can’t remember—even if that means shedding her human misgivings and embracing her more carnal desires.
After shifting from bear to man, Barry believes he’s finally found his mate. Now he just needs to find himself. He doesn’t know much about the animal within him, but his human heart aches for Charli. She ignites his instincts to protect her from all danger—including their electric attraction.
The stakes climb as Charli investigates the mystery behind Barry’s memory loss and how it may relate to strange sightings and thefts in this little corner of Oregon. Without answers, she may lose Barry—and herself—to the wild side forever.
First off, where has author Milly Taiden been my whole life!? My to be read pile, of course, but when I seen that her novel Bearly in Control was only $1.99 there was no way I could pass it up. I purchased it and started right away.
Bearly in Control is a wonderful blend of mystery, humor and steamy sex that left me wanting more!
In it we meet vet and animal whisperer Charli Avers and a shifter with no memory of who he is. He is quickly dubbed “Barry” and off the mystery goes! Who is he? How does he not remember anything, especially being able to shift into a huge bear?! One thing he does know is that he wants Charli and from the smell of her she the attraction is mutual.
While they are trying to figure out Barry’s past we learn that Charli is part of a special unit there to help police the shifters and run interference between them and the human population.
I loved the other members of the team. It was constant humor between them and I cannot wait for their books. We kind of have two mysteries going on as they work on their first case as a unit but it is quickly obvious that Barry and their current case have something to do with each other.
Author Milly Taiden is hilarious! The constant back and forth between Devin and “Sinatra”, the corny but wonderful back and forth between Barry and Charli, it was all wonderful and seamless.
We are left with a lot of questions and only some of our mystery solved but a good ending that leave you wanting the next book. I cannot wait to get my hands on her upcoming novel in the Shifters Undercover series, Fur Fox's Sake coming out April 25th!
In the second novel from bestselling author Milly Taiden’s Shifters Undercover series, two shifters must work together to unravel a gripping mystery while fighting their fierce passion…Marika Paters has an energy coursing through her that others can’t explain. Maybe it’s the curious fox that lies within that gives Marika joy in her work as a geneticist for the only forensic laboratory for animals. But while her research unravels mysteries—like startling new data that threatens to dismantle everything science knows about shifters—Marika has always felt incomplete, just another lonely shifter looking for her mate.
Following a family tragedy, Fellowship Agent Devin Sonder believes he will never find love. But the panther inside knows his mate is out there somewhere—and he can’t give up. When the bodies of a senator and a mysterious dead wolf lead Devin to kind, playful Marika, he feels a powerful, magnetic attraction…even though their personalities clash.
With more dead wolves found, Marika makes a revolutionary discovery about the origin of the beasts. Together with Devin, she races to find out who could be creating shifters—and why. But can the fierce alpha panther and the fiery, driven fox put their carnal desire aside to hunt down the mastermind before more shifters die?
