I received Hunt in return for an honest review the author. Mara has lost everyone the only family connection she has is professor Conner the boy she grew up with. When he offers her a summer research job she takes it but as soon as she arrives in town he has to leave. Having only been in Crestview for a brief time she hasn’t gotten to really know any of the locals. Following in her grandfather’s footsteps she attends a burial for a man without any family but catches the attention of a stranger also attending.
When the man shows up at her door Mara isn’t too sure about him but her landlord is so set on playing matchmaker. Pushed into spending time with him Mara finds herself trying to deny the attraction but she isn’t the only one. However, Ian isn’t denying the attraction instead he’s determined to win her over and refuses to let her go. The more time he spends with her the stronger the connection but he hasn’t told her the truth of who he is just yet. When things spiral out of control the truth comes out and he’s not the only one with a secret. Now that the truth is out how will things play out.
I like Mara she’s sweet the fact that she goes to burials when the person has no one else made me love her more. I honestly didn’t love Ian at first I found him possessive and brutish when it came to Mara. However, the more we got to know him he grew on me, and by the end I adored him just like Mara. The chemistry between Ian and Mara is hot and steamy but he’s still a gentleman. We’ve got some great new characters that I’m curious to learn more plus a whole new selection of shifters to discover.
I’ve recently gotten really into bear shifter novels over the last year. When I heard that Hunt was set in my favorite world with new bear shifters I had to get my hands on it. Hunt is a fast paced whirlwind romance that is filled with mystery and secrets that could change everything. I admit that I’m not a huge fan of insta-love but it really works for Mara and Ian they just really need each other even if Mara doesn’t think it’s a good idea. I like that the novel connects us to the other series because I’m never ready to say goodbye to some of my favorite characters. The characters are great I found it easy to connect with Mara and Ian grew on me over the book. I truly enjoyed every moment of Hunt it was hard to put down, it’s a beautiful written story that starts an exciting new series. I love the author’s writing style she’s done a brilliant job of weaving an intricate story that captured my heart as well as my imagination. I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next and who’s going to show up in the next books. If you are a fan of paranormal romance I highly recommend you check them all out, because I've loved every single book by the author.
