Bram Wylde is more bear than man, but he embraces it. With the need to fight regularly to let off steam, he lets his alpha bear run free when others keep their inner animals under control. When he sees Kenzie Harlow, a timid deer shifter, he vows that she will be his by the end of the night.

Kenzie has been Rook’s prisoner for the last several years, but at twenty-one she knows if she wants to live she has to escape the sadistic and obsessed panther shifter. When Bram declares her his mate, she knows nothing could happen between them because Rook will prevent it. But it seems fate has other things planned for her because she finds herself at Bram’s isolated cabin that very night. But Rook thinks that if he can’t have her no one can, and Bram must show the panther just how dirty he is willing to fight for his girl.

 

Review:  Fighting Dirty for His Girl is the third book in the Wylde Bears series by Jenika Snow. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. I chose this book because I enjoy read Ms. Snow’s books and I enjoy reading this series.

Kenzie Harlow is a timid deer shifter who has been in the clutches of a man named Rook. Rook has been keeping her prisoner for years. While Rook has her prisoner he has not broken her spirit. She is bound and determined to leave him. I loved how spunky she is and being held prisoner did not dim that.

Bram Wylde is a bear shifter who embraces being a bear and fighting. When Bram spots Kenzie he goes to help her even before realizing she is his mate. Bram has a good heart. I loved that Bram gave Kenzie the room she needed to adjust to life outside being with Rook while keeping her safe from Rook.

The chemistry between Kenzie and Bram is blistering. Bram is so willing to let Kenzie grow and adjust not just to him but life without Rook holding her prisoner all the while keeping her safe from Rook. The sex scenes were scorching. Bram and Kenzie were a great match.

I found this book well written with stimulating and charming characters. I do wish this story was longer and more flushed out. This book is 105 pages long, but it does have a well-defined beginning, middle and ending. Overall, this book was wonderful. I can’t wait to read this next book in the series.
