Review on Goodreads: HERE

There are few things that are off limits to the were-bears of Pine Falls, but humans are one of them. Which is a real pain, because I’ve had it bad for curvy Adelaide Laurent ever since she sashayed into town. The fact that she’s forbidden fruit just makes my fantasies all the sweeter.

But when she signs up to go on a weekend camping trip with the town’s biggest player, it’s time for a bear to step in and claim his mate.

I don’t care if it breaks the rules. She’s mine, and it’s time she knew it.

Shift Out of Luck is the first book in Ruby Dixon's newest (Bear Bites) series of novellas—wherein the tiny, off-the-beaten-path town of Pine Falls, which is inhabited by both humans and Shifters... 

♠ ♣ ♥ ♦

For three years Cole Braxton—a BIG, hulking male bear-shifter—has yearned for Adelainde Laurent, the curvy human woman who taunts him with her swaying hips and flirty smile.

But even though Cole wants to touch and taste and fuck her...he's also terrified of hurting her fragile human frame with his large hands and strong desires. So he hardens his jaw, and gives her an expressionless gaze—all the while desperately trying to distance himself from her.

Although when Adelaide signs up for a tour of the woods with Pine Falls' notoriously sleazy, love'em and leave'em tour guide, Cole's beast awakens...and refuses to let her go. Because no other male will get to claim Cole's mate in the woods.

No one but him. Every other male? Well...they're Shift Out Of Luck.

♠ ♣ ♥ ♦

While Shift Out Of Luck was a short and sassy novella, it captured my interest with its well-written, shifting (pun intended) POV's, smutty sex scenes, and appealing characters.

Though I do wish there was more explanation/development of the (Bear Bites) world and its inhabitants, that didn't distract me from enjoying this book as a quick, over-the-top, fun paranormal romance read. 

Overall, I would recommend this book to those who are fans of Alexa Riley—and who're trolling through their shelves, searching for something short and smutty, with big bear-shifters that have even bigger dicks hearts.



*PS: I was given an copy of this book. But I do solemnly swear that I am up to...good. ;) This is a fair and honest review of this book, pinky promise.*
