Review: Bear Claw (Shifter Chronicles #2) by Crissy Smith

Beauty and grace meet muscles and tattoos. When what’s on the outside doesn’t match the inside, sometimes you just trust your instincts.

Jamie Ward is the leader of the Bear Unit for the Shifter Coalition. He uses his big, tough biker appearance to intimidate his suspects. It works for him, except in finding a mate.

A recent resident of Lake Worth, Arizona, Jamie finds himself at the local library where he meets the woman who might just be worth risking everything for, including his heart. If only he could get up the nerve to ask her out.

Brandy Brooks has a secret. She writes erotic romance mysteries under a pen name. Hiding her identity is second nature to her and she enjoys living in the shadows—until a sexy biker starts visiting her place of employment. For once in her life, she wishes to be seen. But Jamie doesn’t appear interested.

The two navigate carefully through the beginnings of a relationship that is interrupted by Jamie’s missing person cases and the threat of war between humans and shifters. They must work together to keep each another safe when their night out literally explodes around them.

Reader Advisory: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.

Bear Claw is book two of Crissy Smith’s Shifter Chronicles Series.  I read this as a standalone, but believe reading book one would have benefited since some of the characters make an appearance here, but it is not a necessity.  This story centers on Jamie, a big, rough and tough, tatted up biker.  He’s the leader of the bear unit of the Shifter Coalition, and oh yeah, he’s a black bear shifter himself! He’s compassionate, sweet, and is a real giver. So much more teddy then shreddy kind of bear!

He has set his sights on a cute librarian, Brandy, but how would she handle his alter ego?  Most people have a hard time, especially when there are groups trying to start war between shifters and humans.  Is she sympathetic to their cause or is she against shifters?? 

Bear Claw is packed full of secrets and mystery. Brandy doesn’t know Jamie is a shifter. Jamie doesn’t know Brandy is from a powerfully wealthy family. How they handle her family, the public and everything else is the adventure we are seeking! I am looking forward to the next book!
