Hello friends! Today I’ve got my review of Bearly Married, which is a Shifter novella that takes place about 30 years-or-so before Trust the Wolf starts.
Trigger Warning: Abduction, Tranquilizer Usage, Gun Violence, Violence, Blood Mention, Death Mention, and Sex Scenes.
Love is a great reason to marry someone, but so is desperation.
Alexandre Thibault needs to marry an heiress: his clan’s finances are decimated, and his cousin is challenging him for leadership. He has even found the perfect woman—a pure-blood bear shifter with a hefty dowry—though he never expected the attraction between them.
Christine Bergeron will do anything to escape her family home, though exchanging the city for the Canadian wilderness isn’t as easy as she’d imagined. Especially when she’s in danger of losing her heart to a man who might never love her back.
But as enemies threaten their family, Alexandre and Christine will risk everything to keep their safe haven.
I read Bearly Married before I even read what it was about, so it was startling for me to read. Though I did realize that Bearly Married features the dual points of view from both Alexandre and Christine.
What I liked about Bearly Married was that the story was set about 30 years before Trust the Wolf begins. Which means we get to see Alexandre and Christine before they had children. And how different they were! Alexandre was way more relaxed, and Christine had just begun to come out of her shell.
I loved reading from both Alexandre, and Christine. I enjoyed reading that even in their situation these two truly came to love one another. Reading Bearly Married was such a treat! Alexandre and Christine are so young and adorable in this novel, I couldn’t help that I ended up adoring these two and their story.
I think the most shocking thing about Bearly Married was how relaxed Alexandre was, in comparison as to what he was like in the few moments we see him in Trust the Wolf.
I give Bearly Married, 4 stars.
Thank you for stopping by!
See you soon, and Happy Reading!
