For vet and animal whisperer Charli Avers, talking to bears is all in a day’s work. But when she finds a man—a very sexy, very alpha man—where a bear ought to be, the wild comes close to home. Charli is drawn to this mysterious stranger. She wants to help him piece together the past he can’t remember—even if that means shedding her human misgivings and embracing her more carnal desires.
After shifting from bear to man, Barry believes he’s finally found his mate. Now he just needs to find himself. He doesn’t know much about the animal within him, but his human heart aches for Charli. She ignites his instincts to protect her from all danger—including their electric attraction.
The stakes climb as Charli investigates the mystery behind Barry’s memory loss and how it may relate to strange sightings and thefts in this little corner of Oregon. Without answers, she may lose Barry—and herself—to the wild side forever.
Being the first book I’ve ever read by Milly Taiden, and the first paranormal romance in quite a while, I wasn’t impressed with BEARLY IN CONTROL. With its pretty cover and promising plot, this book would’ve been better if it was longer so the whole story, character developments and the breadcrumbs that were left for the upcoming books could’ve spread out more evenly. The way it was, everything felt very rushed. The meeting of the hero and heroine was rushed, their falling for each other was rushed-even considered by pnr standards- the action, the introduction of the rest of the characters were all rushed.
