Lilly Winters gave her virginity to Court Devlin—her brother’s best friend—at the age of eighteen. Losing it in the back of his pickup truck hadn’t been romantic, but it didn’t matter because she loved him. But afterwards Court distanced himself from her and Roan, and she knew it was because he felt like he betrayed her brother.

Court Devlin is a bear shifter and a member of the Grizzly MC. After turning his back on the two people he cared about, he immersed himself in the biker life. The MC is violent and dangerous, but he embraces it.

After Lilly is attacked, Court delivers retribution to the man that hurt her in the most grisly of ways. He realizes he can’t let Lilly go again, not when his bear has already claimed her.

Motorcycle riding bears… nope, the circus isn’t in town, but the Grizzly MC is certainly making their presence known. Especially a certain hard, virginity stealing biker named Court.

Right off the bat, I didn’t like Court. He has a callous attitude, and to just up and leave Lilly, that’s not the act of a hero. Thankfully, he does get better throughout the book.

Lilly is Roan’s little sister. Roan is Court’s best friend. So, of course, that made Lilly totally off limits, until she was eighteen and drunk, not smart and not particularly romantic.

After an attack on Lilly, the story became a bit too sugary to be MC (biker) themed. It’s not a negative so much as I had to shift gears in what I thought it would read like. I actually adored Lilly and Court after all they’ve been through. I can even say the fallout was a bit of both of their faults.

Lilly has been in love with her brother’s best friend. Soft, sweet and loving, and seemingly naïve to the lifestyle that surrounds Court… or is she? The chemistry between Lilly and Court was there, the sex scenes were nice. I did wish for and expect a bit more heat with Court being a biker.

This is book four in the series but it can be read well without the others. I kind of thought this read was a bit different than the others. Ms Snow has the talent to weave her spell and give readers something good. I enjoyed it even when it felt like it could have used more Pow! In the end it all worked out and if you like bike and bear stories then by all means grab up a copy and give it try.
