There was nothing ordinary about Honey Potts. From the tips of her Very Berry Pink toenails to the top of her curly auburn head, and every freckled mouthwatering inch of abundant skin in between, she was a force of nature that made Derek’s head spin.
For an experienced bear shifter like him, that could spell big trouble.

Lynn Richards is the writing team of two best friends. They enjoy romance. Period. Their books always have a happily-ever-after. Writing is as necessary to them as breathing. Too bad that pesky thing called work interferes every day.
Why We Love Werebears!
We’re not certain when werebears began to gain in popularity. Most paranormal romance usually involved the big, bad wolf. Gradually, other shifters started making appearances. A cougar here, a jaguar there. Then, bears. Oh, my! When you think of a bear you think of a big, lumbering animal. One who doesn’t appear too bothered about anything.
When you think of a werebear—you think big and broad shoulder and did we mention big? There’s no doubt that when a werebear is featured in a story that the hero is going to be a big man. Broad shouldered, muscled legs and arms the size of tree trunks. Just how we like ‘em.
What you don’t expect is a hero who is as dedicated to the love of his life as the wolf.
“I’m burning up,” she said matter-of-factly, the grin tilting her luscious lips full of wicked mischief. “I thought I’d join you for a swim.” Keeping her eyes on his face, she toed off her tennis shoes and put her hands on the bottom of her sunny top and began to inch it upward.
“Like hell you are.” He made a cutting motion with his hand. “Dammit woman, keep that shirt on or I’ll…”

Honey and Her Bear by Lynn Richards is an enjoyable read. This was my first BBW Paranormal Romance and my first time reading this author. When I saw it had a bear shifter I jumped at the chance to read this. I just love bear shifters, but I guess I had to much built up on it; because I was a little disappointed that their was not much of a plot, sex or more action/conflict.
Honey is a very independent and strong women. I felt connected to her within the first few pages. She has a lot of the same concerns and thoughts as most women do that fall for a man. I liked that she did not give up and that she made a point of showing Derek that being alone is not what he needs.
Derek, shifter alpha bear. Bear shifters are just so darn sexy. I love them. His bear knew that Honey is their mate, but the man is not yet ready to accept this. His past clouds his judgement and at one point this got on my nerves. I just wanted to smack him over the head and tell him to stop being such a dick to Honey.
Both characters have conflicting emotions and both fight their feelings. The sexual tension is of the charts. We get detailed descriptions of what each want to do with each other in their fantasies. As for the sex their is one scene that lasted maybe a paragraph and it was just ok, not the melt your panties off stuff I am use too. The only other scene is where he gets Honey off in a truck. Not much in the sex department, which was a little disappointing.
Honey and Her Bear was a quick read more having to do with getting over past emotional scars, all and all it was a nice quick read.
