The Blurb:

Bleu has been living an isolated life away from the clan of Grayslake. He’s a happy bear shifter, building furniture and being alone…until a little curvy woman literally crashes into his life. When he pulls her from her car after she wraps it around a tree, he is blindsided by the connection. Never before has he wanted a mate, but finding Lola changes all that.

Lola didn’t plan on her deadbeat mom blowing the rent and then skipping town, so she’s without a home. Again. But this time it’s going to be different. Hearing whispers of shifters in Grayslake, she takes off in search of something, anything, that can bring some light to her life. When her car slips and she ends up in danger, she never expects her rescuer to be the one to give her everything she’s ever wanted.

Will being snowed in lead to steamy nights and mating bites? You betcha!

Warning: This is a short shifter story filled with sweet cheesy possessiveness and lots of growling. Obviously. Go ahead and read it. You know you want to!

My Review:

Growling For Mine (Grayslake: More Than Mated Kindle World)Growling For Mine by Alexa Riley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Steamy and adorable! 5 Stars!!!

“Growling For Mine” from the Grayslake: More Than Mated Kindle World series by Alexa Riley was a sweet, adorable story. I am so hooked on Alexa’s short, sexy, satisfying instal-love novellas. This story is the fated telling of bear shifter Bleu and how he finds his mate, Lola.

Lola was tired and frustrated with the circumstances surrounding her relationship with her and her mother. Lola’s mother, to put it mildly, was a loser and Lola had had enough. Lola packs her things and heads off in her old car. She is eager to get to the town of Grayslake where there are rumors of shifters living there. Lola doesn’t know what she’ll find; she only knows that something is calling her there. Approaching her destination, she finds herself driving in snow for the first time. In fact, Lola has never seen snow before this. Unfortunately, because she doesn’t have experience with driving in the icy fluff, too soon she finds herself in need of rescuing.

Bleu is a bear shifter with extremely powerful senses, especially hearing. From miles away he hears Lola’s distress and hurries to help. What he didn’t expect were the intense protective and possessive emotions that came over him as he saw her for the first time.


From that moment on, this story was so sweet and sexy. Lola and Bleu had instant attraction that turned quickly into love. This novella will definitely keep you entertained and smiling. Unfortunately, we only get to spend forty-five pages with Bleu and Lola but that didn’t affect how much I loved this story. I can’t wait to read another one of Alexa’s novellas!
