I read the first in the Kodiak Den series a  while go now and I enjoyed it so I was more then happy to return to the world of bear shifters and more with Lamont’s fifth instalment. Returning to the beautiful Kodiak  we meet Kayla who is an out towner planning a wedding for her best friend’s little sister.

Kayla is definitely a city girl and ain’t prepared but a job is a job. She got to put her own personal feelings aside despite wanting to hitch back to NY. She doesn’t want to do anything with the bear shifters in the area. She happy dating humans and she doesn’t want to dredge those feelings up .

However  things have a funny way of coming together  as her trip pushes her out of her comfort zone . Immediately  as she loose control of her life when fate decides she needs some loving and  healing.  In the form of Trent, a bear shifter and tour guide. Exactly what Kayla needs  because she needs to find the perfect location for the wedding.

And she happens to be his mate which Trent has been hoping for a while. He doesn’t know what to do and it cute. He got only a short window but this shifter is out to prove to his mate. He is her’s forever and he will do anything to have his .  He is fall in love fast.

I love that he was sweet and willing to work  with her. He knew  what he had to push. That  they had a connection and the fact despite being different they had common ground and there was a chance for them .   A chance was all this story need and I love watching them slowly find their deeper connection  be built from those first moments.  It was sweet yet it was deeper then the last one I read from Lamont. An enjoyable read from her .
