He might growl, but she’s not afraid to bite.

Hands full taking care of his clan, the last thing this Kodiak bear needs is a woman poking her cute little nose into his affairs. But when she refuses to back down—and shows the courage to stand up to him—he can’t resist the allure of a curvy city girl.

She’s mine. All mine.

And when a rival clan thinks to use her to force his paw, he’ll show them why you never piss off a Kodiak, or threaten what’s his.

Tammy is convinced men are all scum, even gorgeous ones like Reid Carver. She knows he’s hiding something. Something big. She just never expected a real freaking bear hid underneath all those muscles. But when the truth comes out and he tries to scare her off with a roar, she shows him not just bears have bite.

Disclaimer: I DNF Kodiak’s Claim with about 1.5 hours left in the audio.

I was a little disappointed in Kodiak’s Claim. After reading bear shifters by authors like Jessica Sims, Shelley Laurenston and Jennifer Ashley I was looking forward to starting Kodiak’s Claim.

All of the other werebears I’ve read from the mentioned authors have been a delight. They are lovable, grumpy and have an obsession with honey and/or fish like their animal counterparts. Making them fun characters. I can’t say the same for Reid. He just didn’t hit that werebear itch I had.

The narration was on the slow side for me. Chandra Skyye didn’t have an unpleasant voice but it was a little too mono-toned for me. She just read the book. There was not much difference in the voices. Honestly the narration could have easily put me to sleep if I had been listening at home instead of work.

The story, characters and narration didn’t work for me. They didn’t pull me in and I found myself not caring how Kodiak’s Claim ended. The writing wasn’t bad so I’m going to give the second book in the Kodiak Point series, Outfoxed by Love a try. I mean the idea of a moose shifter has peaked my interest. But I’ll be checking it out in ebook format from the library instead of listening to the audio.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).

  1. Oh, that is awful that the narrator killed it for you. I know exactly what you are talking about with a monotone expressionless narrator. I read the book, so I enjoyed it. Hopefully by reading the next one, it will be better for you.

  2. Bummer! I doesn’t look like I’m going to be listening to this one any time soon 🙁 I’m having a hard time getting into new Paranormal romance series as it is.
    I totally get monotone readers and when you say it sounds like they’re just reading the books, I know what a drag that is!

  3. I’m sorry this one didn’t work out for you. I’ll admit that I was not a huge fan of the narrator either. I think she takes some of the fun out of the stories. When I listened to this one, it didn’t feel like it had the humor to it like the others did. Reid’s obsession was brown sugar. I really hope that you have a better time with Boris and Jan.
