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.
Despite having such a tough life, Kenzie wasn't totally broken. Battered but not broken. I love how she finds and gathers the strength to be able to fight back and live on despite the things she's been through.
As usual, Jenika writes some very amazing, very hot, very yummy steam that makes your toes curl and blush. I love how there is a short epilogue at the end of each book to show us everyone's HEA! Following the Wylde Bears series, we have the Sweet Water series <3
