Series: North Pole #3
Told in dual POVs
Polar bear shifter, Wade Sullivan, is an enforcer in Santa’s Village at the North Pole. When he’s not protecting the man in red, he spends his time drumming for free in a local cover band. When a friend asks for a favor, he finds himself playing for a much larger crowd, but only one woman can keep his attention.
Curvy, plus-sized human, Danica North has sworn off any man who plays in a band. As a waitress in a popular club, she’s been there, done that and thrown out the t-shirt. It doesn’t matter that the drummer in the new band is sinfully sexy and makes her feel things she hasn’t felt in almost two years; all musicians are off-limits.
Wade can’t believe he found his mate during his first gig with the new band. Dani is absolutely perfect except for one thing: she doesn’t date musicians. Not one to be deterred, he settles for friendship, but it isn’t long before Dani realizes she wants her friend way too much. Can she trust Wade enough to change her rules, or will she spend another Christmas alone?

“Little Drummer Bear” North Pole #3 is by author Ruby Shae

My Rating: 4 Stars
I absolutely love Ruby Shae’s bears. All of her novellas are steady to fast paced and can be read in a couple of hours. Her heroines are typically voluptuous and curvy; just what her large bear shifters are looking for in their mates. Ruby’s heroes are largely built, sexy, tough, protective and loyal. Ruby is an author I like to keep an eye on.
The premise of the North Pole series is how the polar bear shifters of the North Pole find their mates. Each bear has their own personality and they are all sexy! These polar bears are the enforcers/protectors of Santa’s village/town and all the humans and shifters that reside there. The cast of characters not only bring fun, love and romance, but there is witty banter and quirkiness with some light angst. And of course they all have HEAs.
Polar Bear shifter, Wade Sullivan and curvy human, Danica North…..
This was another adorable and fun addition to the North Pole Bear series. The holiday season is very busy for me as I’m sure it is for many. My favorite things to do are watch Christmas movies and read Christmas romances. Reading them any other time of the year just isn’t the same. This year I read so many wonderful books and Ruby Shaes’ bears were among them.
Wade is one of the protectors of Santa’s village. He is built heavy with muscles, very tall, good looking and sexy. But he is also kind, patient and protective. Especially when it comes to his mate, Danica. She is wary to get involved with him because he is a musician. But Wade isn’t deterred. She belongs to him and he will be what she needs until she realizes they are meant to be together.
Danica is a human living among shifters. She doesn’t mind. She loves her friends, her home and her job. She is also attracted to a sexy polar bear shifter. Unfortunately he is a drummer playing in a popular band. Been there…done that…got burned. Danica doesn’t want to chance getting hurt again. But how much longer will she be able to keep Wade in the friend zone?
As I said earlier, I loved this book and I look forward to more by this author. If you like shifter romances, Christmas and short, quick stories….I recommend this one along with the whole series!
