"No Ifs, Ands, or Bears About It" [Grayslake Series, Book 1] by Celia Kyle

Author's Book Description : 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.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars, one determined woman takes on the Grayslake Itan--clan's leader--and some aggressive werebears in order to protect a child she doesn't know while loosing her heart to the Itan in the process...

Ms. Kyle hit a home run with this adventurous paranormal romance! It has a wonderful buildup for being the start of this series and fun characters! As a duo, Mia and Ty are a perfect match! From their romantic intensity, to their determination to do right by the abandoned child, to the way they both seem to have a strong ability to lead (not including Mia's "freak outs") Ty's clan .... they just fit together so well!

In truth, I enjoyed this novel so much that I was sad when the few chapters after the "big battle" felt a little bit like a let down. I only say that because Ty didn't seem to act like who I thought him to be--the strong leader. In addition, even though the chapters were leading up for what might be happening within the next novel in this series it still left more questions for me then answers. =0/

Nevertheless, I'm excited to see where this series goes! Since I loved Ty's brothers, and I'm assuming they are going to be the hero's throughout this series, so I can't wait to what will happen to them (actually the whole family) and who they'll end up with.

I recommend this novel and series to those who are fans of Ms. Kyle and/or like paranormal romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
With thin straps and gaping armholes, Ty was able to see the cub clearly. Rage, familiar and hot, burst through him at the sight of the boy's condition.
A threatening growl tore from his chest, pushing through his heart and bursting into the room. Gigi was the first to react, kneeling and focusing on the bit of floor before her. Other nearby bears, his brother Van included, did the same. Each of them fought to soothe his temper through submission. Hell, even little Parker, who didn't understand, whined and laid his head on the table.
The only one still standing by the time he cut off the sound was Mia. No, she wasn't just standing. She was leaning against him, her injured hand flat against his chest and fingers tracing his muscles. It was then he noticed her murmuring.
"Shh... You can gut him later. With a dull knife. Won't that be fun? You can bathe in his blood and drag his body down the street. Entrails everywhere..."
A woman after his own heart. ~ within Chapter 4
