Bear the Heat (Fire Bears Book 3) by T. S. Joyce

And they all lived Happily Ever After. That’s the end, and I loved it. But, Oh my gosh, the difficulties getting there were extreme.
Our heroine in this story is a news reporter who has been supportive of the bear shifters since they had to come out in front of humans. Cora has been supporting them, but had never met Boone, our bear shifter, firefighter, in person before. She is incredibly attracted to him. He is sometimes clearly attracted, but sometimes closed off. Boone has known that she is the one for him since he saw her from a distance, but he fears that the controversy and danger will harm her, so he wants to stay away. I loved both main characters, and the characters that starred in the previous books appear here too. We get a chance to explore what it would be like to expose yourself as a bear shifter or a bear shifter lover. Cora, as a human, has a chance to create a positive impression of the bear shifter family. It is a great book, with thoughtful insights, action, danger, love and sex. I really enjoyed it.

Cora Wright is walking a fine line between standing up for what’s right, and keeping her job secure. As a local news reporter, her need to defend the Breck Crew of newly outed bear shifters risks everything she loves about her life. But when she meets Boone Keller, tatted up bad boy bear shifter, her world tilts dangerously on its axis. And the more he lets her into his secret life, the harder she falls for a man she isn’t supposed to love.

If Boone wants to keep the fiery news reporter he’s been secretly coveting safe, the friend-zone is where she’ll have to stay. He’s been doing a bang-up job of avoiding the woman who has been publicly rallying for his crew, but a chance meeting with Cora is killing his reserve. And when she shuts down his attempt to push her away, he’ll have to decide whether to draw her in close to protect her from his secrets, or cut her loose to save her life.
