Alternating POVs by all three H/h
Lonely, curvy girl, Ava Redmond is flailing aimlessly after selling her dream business six months ago. A new job and a new group of friends would be wonderful, but a family is what her heart truly desires. A devoted man, who appreciates her curves and freckles, would be just what the doctor ordered to push her loneliness away.
Identical twins and bear shifters, Doctors Gavin and Hawk Thorn have been searching a long time for a mate to complete their triad. They have worked hard to succeed in both their personal and professional lives, but their success means nothing without a mate to call their own.
Tired of meeting women only interested in sex and money, Gavin and Hawk place an ad for a bride listing all of their combined redeeming qualities. Desperate for change, Ava answers an ad for a mail order bride to a seemingly perfect man. When she finds out Thorn is actually two perfect men, she must decide whether to accept their love, or run back to her boring, lonely life.

“Bear Seeking Bride: Thorn” Bear Canyon Bears by author Ruby Shae.
My Rating: 4 Stars!…
So bummed this is the last book in this series. Oh well, guess I’ll just read her North Pole Bear series next, with Christmas coming up. 🙂 Anyway, getting back to my review…this was my favorite of the series. Well duh…not only do we get one sexy bear shifter but this story has two! This is a menage romance.
Grizzly bear shifters and identical twins. What more can you ask for? Let me add that these sexy brothers, Gavin and Hawk Thorn, are wealthy doctors. Gavin and Hawk are tired of dating women who are only interested in sex and their wealth. It’s depressing and they are disgusted. This results in two lonely shifters who only want to find their mate. One perfect woman for them to share. One woman who will agree to love them both. Recently a couple of their friends found their mates by listing an add in the classifieds, successfully. Hawk and Gavin think it’s time they did the same.
Ava Redmond is living a lonely and aimless life thanks to her ex-boyfriend. What a jerk that guy is! Because she put her faith in a relationship that failed miserably, Ava lost her dream business. Her life was depressing, going nowhere. No job. No friends. No family. Ava bravely decides to answer an add for a bear shifter seeking a human bride.
Ava, Gavin and Hawk get off to a less than happy start. She was surprised to find out there were two shifters seeking bride and as a result, she believed she was the butt of a cruel joke. But thankfully these two bears convince her of their sincerity. As soon as they saw her, they knew she was meant for them. She was their mate and they needed to claim her. I wished this novella was longer. I was really invested in it when it ended and I wanted more.
The characters in this series are likable. The heroines were perfect mates for their shifter partners. They were strong despite some of their insecurities. The heroes were sexy and successful and I thought developed for novellas. Would I have liked a bit more backstory on the bears? Yes. Still, I was entertained and enjoyed this series. I have read several of Ruby’s bear series’ and enjoyed them all. I am looking forward to reading more.
