Great book! The recipes were fantastic! Annabeth’s bakery (Cinnamon+Sugar Bakery) is simply wonderful! The characters were complex but adorable. Dane Swanson and his family were lovable. Dane’s brothers were supportive and need their own stories. The plot is suspenseful but at the same time light-hearted. The seeting Bearpaw Ridge is a quaint and wonderful little town. The book is a feel good story and very very good. This book was an ARC Gifted By The Author in exchange for an honest review.
When pastry chef Annabeth Jones goes on the run from her abusive fiance, the small town of Bearpaw Ridge offers her a safe haven. Nestled at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, with friendly neighbors and a bakery/cafe that needs a new owner, it’s the perfect place for her to start over.

Annabeth has no idea that Bearpaw Ridge’s population is more shifter than human … but if they’re to be mated, Dane will have to find a way to tell her everything.
Wary of new relationships, Annabeth can’t help warming to the strong, handsome man who can’t get enough of her cinnamon rolls … or her. But her fragile hopes are shattered when her ex tracks her down, determined to reclaim her.
Dane is equally determined to protect his mate — but will Annabeth still accept him when he reveals the other side of his nature?

I waited to write this review for a couple of hours because I am trying to wrap my head around how I feel. Did I like this book overall? Yes. But then why did I give a 3? I am torn because my analytical mind and my screw it because it is fiction mind are at war. I loved the plot and the characters. I loved Dimitri and his fierce passion and demanding presence. The chemistry is palpable between Dimitri and Kiera, but then why the 3? I think it was because I was left with too many questions. Questions that I can’t reveal without giving the plot away. I kept waiting for the betrayal or the twist because Kiera’s brother keeps alluding to one but nothing. I felt like a huge something was going to happen and then nothing. I mean it was a quick and passionate short read, but although it was good, it had the potential to be freaking amazing. I think a book 2 is in order!
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

NEW!! INTELLIGENT FANTASY EROTICA!!!
A college student learns about Philosophy and classical Greek legends, but her self-exploration truly begins when she meets the legend himself: The tall, sexy, bearded half-man/half-goat is Socrates’ black sheep uncle. He powerfully demonstrates that all the legends are true: satyrs are randy, passionate lovers who are irresistible to human females.
“Steamy, sexy, smart!”
Alone in the deepest stacks of the old university library, first-year Philosophy student Callie has a pre-destined meeting with a centuries-old mythical being. According to legend, satyrs possess both keen intelligence and fierce sexual drive. Callie learns both of these stereotypes are true. Satyrs also understand sexual desire to be a natural right, if not a necessity. “Free love and often” seems to be their motto. Though Callie initially resists this, she comes to understand the wisdom of it as her mythical lover continually caresses, strokes, suckles, penetrates her body.
Socratex is a fiercely gentle, passionate lover who keeps Callie with him in a mysterious cave beneath the library. During her days and nights with the satyr, Callie enjoys sexual satisfaction at levels she never dreamed were possible. When he leaves temporarily, Callie’s now-overwhelming desire for her satyr is soon assuaged by Socratex’ son, Kristofer. The wondrous, orgasmic connection they have as they merge their bodies in delightful ways leads to a profoundly deep relating between two connected in all possible ways. . . . . And then his satyr friends arrive for the summer! Callie’s understanding of sexual passion expands exponentially as she discovers her life’s purpose.

This was a very interesting read. I was not really sure what to expect when I requested to read this book from the new adult group on Goodreads, but I was pleasantly surprised. This book was about growing up and truth and consequences. I felt the parents’ reactions were a little over the top, but I suppose that there are some sperm and egg donors who could be that clueless and dense towards raising a child. Edie is the heart of this story. She is the catalyst for change for everyone. Nick who learns how to love and trust; her parents who are forced to WAKE UP, her friends, and even the girl who she mentors. She keeps the story swirling learning and loving everyone. It is her innocence and determination that fuels the story. Really good read!
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
