He’s got the perfect mate in mind, for five years from now…
The final title in a light-hearted shifter trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Vivian Arend.
Cooper Borealis is fully on board with the concept of fated mates. Except mating the woman he wants—his tempting, complicated, human secretary—is not an option. Or not yet anyway. So he’ll use a loophole to keep the vow he made to his brothers, mating fever be damned. He’ll be with Amber Myawayan at the place and time of his choosing.
Amber has spent the past two years in the north looking for her missing brother—and falling in love with the big, growly polar bear at the helm of Borealis Gems. More than once, she’s caught him looking at her with hungry shifter eyes. But getting him to admit it? Ha! Luckily, mating fever is a thing, and she’s happy to get involved as nature forces the issue to the forefront.
But when their mating bond is unexpectedly blocked, Amber and Cooper find themselves in a race against time. She needs to track down her brother while somehow proving she’s tough enough to be with her favourite bear. And Cooper plans to protect her at all costs, even if it means secretly stifling his stubborn shifter side.
Somewhere in the wilderness, they’ll find the answer…or lose their chance at forever.
Point of view:
3rd Person. Alternating mostly from Cooper & Amber’s.
While you don’t have to listen to The Bear’s Chosen Mate or The Bear’s Fated Mate first – they’re definitely best listened to in order.
Awe! This was a nice wrap up to a cute, fun, & sexy series. Cooper & Amanda have been circling in the background and it was great to hear them get their HEA.
I like the way Arend differentiated this couple’s story from the others (I don’t want to say and ruin it). This one also had a little action/adventure element as Amber continues to search for her brother.
As always, lots of funny banter between the characters and their animals.
Tatiana Sokolov was a lot of fun to listen to. She does a good job with all the voices and emotions. An easy series to binge.
