After being dragged to the gym by her best friend to learn self-defense, Sandy is blown away by the gorgeous instructors, Jake and Zack. But they’re also Neanderthals like her brothers, so getting involved with them is off limits.

Shifter cousins, Jake and Zack are instantly captivated and aroused by the feisty redhead, which fate has brought into their lives. Rather than confess their love in the more traditional way, they break into her house, undress and show her she’s their mate in a much more physical way.

Can Sandy resist the two men? Or will they convince her their bond and passion will still give her the freedom she craves?


Review: Ours is the second book in The Bears series by Hazel Gower. While this book is part of a series it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. I chose this book because the concept of bear shifters intrigued me. I have read about other shifters, like wolves, big cats, even birds but not bears and I had to read it.

Sandy is brought to the gym to learn self-defense by friends. While she is there she meets Jack and Zack. She is amazed about how gorgeous they are. She is very strong and does not want overprotecting, or overbearing men in her life. She is determined to keep them in line along with her father and brothers. I fund it funny that she had such an outgoing personality.

Jake and Zack are cousins who share the same mate, Sandy. They are hot and sexy men. They are very overprotective of their mate. Jake and Zack act without thinking at times. They don’t seem to do things conventually.

The chemistry between them is off the charts. The sex scenes were hot and spicy. The sex scenes were wonderfully written even when other parts of the book lack it was never in the sex scenes.

The only thing that would have made this story better was if the author flushed the story out more. I think this story could have easily been twice the length it was maybe longer. I would have liked the ending flushed out more than it was. It seemed too quick. Overall, this author shows a lot of promise. I will be picking up the first book in the series shortly.
