Bearly in Time by Erin Kelly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
it could have done with another round of proofreading to prune out a few typo's and make sure the lay-out was ok. there were quite a few cut off sentences that shouldn't have been there.
the build up has a nice pace to it, not too rushed, attraction there on both parts but also some resistance. it wasn't wham bam thank you ma'm.
what i did find a bit inconsistent is that never in the book was told how the world views shifters. are they known, are they a hidden legend, are they believed to be myth and fairy tales? at one point the female lead just accepts the fact he's a werebear and that she knew, no explanation whatsoever. this is one area where the writer could have brought in a nice background to the island and her own shifterworld.
despite these issues i still enjoyed the book, it gave me a nice few moments to dream away with.

- I'm a rookie writer enjoying the flow of words sprouting out of my fingers. Sometimes it goes easy, at other times it's a real struggle. I love and crave any kind of feedback, good or bad. I write when I can, but a husband, two kids, 4.2 cats (aging from 15 years to 4 months) do take up most of my time. Yet I found the time to try out something I never thought I was good at. I started writing. I came to love it and enjoy the new friendships I've made with fellow writers I simply adore (well I like the writers, but adore their work *grins*)
