CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE! All Gillian Leekey wanted was a night with a bear…a big, hairy man who turns her on like no tomorrow. Spying Declan Batalova at a local leather bar, she is immediately transfixed by the big man. He is all she wants and more in a man but when danger storms her front door the next day, can Gillian look past the big man and see who the real Declan is and maybe is he the right man for her?

Stephanie Burke is one of those authors who always give us a dose of humor in her stories-right alongside those hot sexy bits as well. HOW NOT TO DATE A BEAR is her fifth book in this wonderful and different series that has humor, lots of sexy bits and intriguing characters as well. The writing is tight, story moves fast and smoothly and man, those sinfully sexy scenes…I urge you to make sure a window, a fan or your significant other is nearby because you will need some sufficient cooling down after reading this one.

Meet Gillian Leekey. She is a woman who just loves big, hairy men and when meeting Declan at a local leather bar, she thinks she finds the perfect one night stand, except Declan is more than he seems to be. Oh my god these two had me looking to see if my e-reader was going to melt from all the sparks flying. The characters are well written and multi-dimensional. The author has captured the essence of the characters perfectly. There were several humorous moments that left me chuckling even as I squirmed in my seat. The secondary characters were just as amusing and interesting as the main two characters and I am hoping the author comes back to this world she created in the future.

HOW NOT TO DATE A BEAR is a rollicking fun ride from start to finish and is one of my favorite Stephanie Burke books to date. If you enjoy big, sexy, hairy men and the women who can go toe to toe with them, then grab this book and make sure to check out the rest of the series. You surely won’t be disappointed.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
