The first day of Mia’s new life in Grayslake, Georgia is not going as planned. The house her grandfather left her looks ready to crumble, boxes cover every inch of the floor and—oh—there’s a bear cub in her pantry. It gets worse when the cub’s uncle comes by and busts out his fur and claws while on her front porch. Then it gets loads better because suddenly there’s a hot hunk of badge-wearing werebear on her lawn ready to rescue her. Yum. Of course, he has to ruin things by trying to take the cub out of her hands. Ha! The cub is hers… No ifs, ands, or bears about it. 

Werebear Ty can’t seem to get the curvaceous, delectable Mia to understand that, even if she is one-quarter werebear, she isn’t keeping the cub. Ty is the Grayslake Itan, the clan’s leader, and the little werebear is going home with him… Unless it isn’t. It’s her smile. If she’d stop smiling and being gorgeous, his inner-bear would support him and Ty would get his way. But the beast wants to make their woman happy, so it’s perfectly content to let her do as she pleases. Then things change. Threats arise, danger comes close, and Ty demands she return to his den. No ifs, ands, or mates about that.



 ~ 5 No Ifs, Ands, Or Bears Stars ~ 

No Ifs, Ands, Or Bears About It is book one in the Grayslake series by Celia Kyle. OMG I loved this book. It was fun and entertaining. We have humor, a great cast of characters, romance, and some HAWT werebears.

Mia a quarter werebear. I loved the opening scene with her. She has a lot of guts standing up for a cub she knows nothing about. I liked her from the get go. 

Ty our werebear and Inta of the clan. He is still learning what kind of leader he wants to be and Mia confuses and excites him, adding a complication he never saw. He’s great with Mia showing his protectiveness, possessiveness, and pushy sides. I liked him right off as well. 

I loved this book. The antics where fun and funny at times, the sexual tension is just waiting to be set off, along with exploring the werebear society and politics, we also have an adorable cub I could not get enough of. The author does a great job keeping the plot flowing as well as bringing in a great cast of characters. I really liked the humor and banter between everyone. You feel that connection wither they are family or friends. The relationship building was great. Ty gave Mia a chance to accept the mating and let her be herself. 

No Ifs, Ands, Or Bears About It is definitely worth picking up, especially if you enjoy sexy alpha werebear shifters. I am looking forward to reading more in this series.

  1. Ooh werebears, I’d like to read this just for the novelty of that.

    • I love picking up bear and dragon shifter books. This one has been on my TBR for some time. I wish my library carried Celia Kyle, but they don’t so I have to wait for gift cards to buy her books. ^_^

  2. NOOOOO! Another series to add to my TBR list. This looks so good. Fine, I’m going to add now. Great review. 🙂

    • LOL I know how you feel. Thank’s for stoping in and checking out the book Melanie! Have a great weekend.
