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, very alpha 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.
“But breathing you in, thinking of your taste, overpowers all the pain.”
Aw, damn. She bit her lip to keep from melting in her seat.
“So, you’re saying I’m like morphine?”
“You are a powerful drug, baby, and I’m completely addicted.”
It has been too long since I've read Milly Taiden, so when I had the chance to read Bearly in Control, I pounced on it! I was so excited to read it not only because she wrote it, but also because I love my bear shifters and I was so looking forward to meeting Barry. The book and the man himself did in no way disappoint me - I completely loved them both!
Charli is a total bada*s and I have to say it, even though it feels a little weird to, but she's even more of a bada*s than Barry. She's strong, independent, and she can take of herself and Barry too. That doesn't mean that Charli is all hard and rigid though, just the opposite really. She's sweet, compassionate, and caring. Charli has a heart of gold and I loved everything about her!
Barry might not be the toughest hero you've ever read about, but that doesn't mean that he's not strong or that he's a sissy. Yes, he's sweet, but he's protective, possessive, and commanding too. Barry is sexy, thoughtful, and so lovable - I know I sure did!
Bearly in Control wasn't much of a mystery to me, but I really enjoyed where the story took us. It was definitely intriguing and I'm excited to figure out some of the things that were unanswered and where the next book takes us. As for this book itself, though, it was steamy, funny, playful, and full of action, danger, and heart. It was a fantastic read and I can't wait to read more about these characters!
Bearly in Control is a standalone, it's told from multiple points of view, and Barry and Charli do get a happy ending, but if you're like me, I know you'll be wanting more!
