Baker Becca has had a lot of knocks in her life. Her parents and sister are all gone, leaving Becca to take care of her teenage nephew, but Becca is handling it all. That is until Bear shifter Carl comes into her life and turns it all upside down.
When Becca's nephew turns up missing Carl is there to help her find him, but he has a secret that is way to out of this world for human Becca to understand. And when it seems that Becca's nephew's disappearance is much more complicated then they first thought, Becca is going to have to put her trust in Carl.
As alpha of the local bear clan it is up to Carl to keep watch of all the shifters around him, he's known for a while now that both he and his bear want Becca, but because she's human and doesn't know about shifters, he's stayed away. Now that he's spending so much more time with Becca the attraction is that much stronger.
Carl and Becca as a couple are a good match. He's the strong alpha bear and while not a bear, Becca is the perfect momma bear. She is sweet and kind, while he is protective. Becca is exactly what Carl was looking for in a woman and more.
While the storyline is very similar to others, I liked that the author took time to more of a back story of the clan, as well as continues to build the suspense while the bears search for the missing teen.
This is the first book in a three part series and a good story to learn to learn about all the characters involved.
WHEN AN ALPHA MEETS HIS MATCH . . .
Between singlehandedly running her bakery and raising her teenaged nephew, Becca Weitz thought she had a decent grip on "normal." Then her nephew vanishes, and life as she's known it changes forever. Local legends are true: bear shifters exist . . . and her nephew is part of their clan. As is Carl Carman, the sexy, larger-than-life man who has sworn to find her nephew-and the other young shifters who've gone missing.
As the leader of his clan, Carl is surrounded by enemies. He's learned the hard way that keeping a firm leash on his inner beast is key to survival, though his feelings for Becca test his legendary control. Then danger stalks too close, and Carl realizes he must unleash the raging, primal force within to protect everything he holds dear. But can Becca trust his grizzly side with her life-and her heart?
