Blurb : He always wanted a bear to keep him warm at night…

Lane knows what he wants in a lover, but hasn’t been able to find the perfect bear of a man in his small Colorado hometown. So he turns to the Grizzly List, a regional personal ad service for bears and their lovers. He’s not sure what to expect when he meets Fin, but what he gets might be his perfect man.

Bear shifter Fin has been looking for someone with whom to spend his days, nights, and winter hibernation. He’s a happy guy, but needs someone who wants a big, burly, slightly dominant mate. When he meets Lane, Fin knows he’s found what he needs, but will he be able to convince Lane that they’re made for one another, in human form and bear?

My Review :  This was a sweet short read and I loved every moment of it. Lane puts up an ad on Grizzly List for a bear of a man. Fin cautiously replies and after emailing back and forth,  they decide to meet at a coffee shop. They hit it off nicely and Lane is so happy with the burly,  hairy bear that is Fin. Fin sees right away the potential of a  mate in the sexy little twink called Lane. Lane doesn’t know it yet , but he has caught a real life were – bear who is looking for a mate.

Both Fin and Lane are so compatible to each other. Fin starts to see slight changes in Lane and realized that he has awakened the hibernating bear within Lane. Lane is confused about the changes in his body, and the only thing that helps is having his sweet gentle Bear around.

Fin dominates  Lane and takes him to new heights, giving him what his body needs before he can even ask. Fin finds his perfect match in the sexy little cub. It takes some getting used to,  but Lane comes around to the idea of them both being bears and mates. They have great fun with their explorations and they both have each other to snuggle with during their hibernation. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear. 

Favorite Quotes : 1. “I think you’re the best thing ever.” Fin prodded at his hole, opening him up, those fingers unavoidable.    Lane pushed up on his knees, offering Fin everything.    “Sweet cub.” Fin pulled free, then lifted him even more before lowering him over that stiff, wide cock. The head spread him, split him and he stretched, a soft growl escaping him.    Not giving him any time to adjust, Fin slid inside him, huge and hot. He gasped, hips rolling forward, cock sliding along Fin’s belly.    “Love that. Love it,” Fin said.    “Need.” Their lips clung as he rode, arching, his ass stinging where Fin grabbed him to hold him close. Instead of pulling away, though, Lane pushed closer. He felt stuffed full, desperate.    Wanton.    Best of all he felt like Fin could take it. Fin was so strong, so in control.    His Bear. ( I love Fin, so domineering,  yet so gentle. My ideal perfect man.)
