Review: Bearly There (City Shifters #1) by Bailey Bradford

One surly bear and one bunny boy…what could possibly go wrong?

Jagger Osterman is having a bad day. In fact, he’s not the slightest bit impressed with 2015 at all. His job is on the line, and it’s not like he loves being a marketing wunderkind, but he has to do something to pay the bills. If he had his way, he’d just vanish into the mountains and live out his life as the black bear he yearns to shift into. Unfortunately, Jagger doesn’t have the time to let his beast run. He has responsibilities that he can’t walk away from.

Kevin Kelly could tell Jagger a thing or two about bad days, bad years, and just out and out bad luck. He made the mistake of smarting off to a curandera years ago and hasn’t been able to shake the curse she put on him yet. There’s not an area of his life that hasn’t been screwed up in one way or another. As a pronghorn shifter, he’d be okay on his own in the wild. Sure, there’d be predators, but Kevin had come to realize the worst predators were the human kind.

But he can’t shift. He’s been solidly bound to human form since being cursed.

Two men, both trapped in their own ways. They’re about to find out that freedom comes in many forms.

This is a lovable shifter book! Although there isn’t much shifting. It was funny and all the banter between the main characters was loveable!

Jagger is a marketing exec who loves his job, but isn’t appreciated at the company he works for. When his co-workers get him a singing telegram, he sees stars when Bunny Boy walks in doing his routine!

Kevin, aka Bunny Boy, jumps from job to job. He has been cursed and no matter how hard he tries, something ends up broken, burnt, or in need of stitches! When he’s equally taken with Jagger, he tries to stay away because knowing he’s cursed could harm Jagger and he doesn’t want that. But neither can stay away so Jagger researches to find ways to break the curse. He’s not sure he believes in Kevin’s curse, but after witnessing some of the “clumsiness” Kevin endures, he wants to help.

For such a quick book it’s packed with a lot of story! I loved how Jagger was skeptical about the curse, but because Kevin believed, he was willing to help him. Kevin had everybody in his life abandon him at some point. The realization that Jagger wasn’t going anyway-curse or not-was the ultimate endearment for Kevin. The book was full of love and tons of laughs. It’s a perfect read for in between those long novels or for a quick vacation read by the pool! A great intro to the City Shifters series! I found it to be a fun story and definitely would recommend it!
