Product Description


Eli Artair thought his cousin was crazy when he decided to marry a human. When he said he loved her only a few days later, Eli knew his cousin had totally lost his mind. There’s no way a shifter could fall in love so easily, especially with a human.
He changes his mind when he meets Liza…
Liza Calder thought her sister was crazy when she married a man sight unseen. When she called a few days later to say she was in love with her husband, Liza knew her sister had gone totally loco. No one can fall in love that fast, especially with a stranger.
She changes her mind when she meets Eli…
Can two people who don’t believe in love discover it in each other’s arms?

WARNING! Rough is an erotic shifter novella. If you don’t like insta-lust that turns into insta-love, a sex starved bear shifter, a heroine that craves her mate, or tons of smoking hot sex this is not the book for you.

Eli the harshest protestor against letting humans into their shifter world has found his mate in Amelia's sister, Liza. He denies it for about a minute but gives in fates demand.
There really wasn't much in the way of drama is this next in the series. Even Eli's father's drama was over quick. I can't say that I connected to Liza like I did with Amelia. Liza also came off as much older than her 18 years. I wanted a little more vulnerability from her.
I do look forward to Mase's story.

I don't want you to think that my 3 star review is an indication of my enjoyment of this book. I did enjoy it. I thought Eli was great as well as Liza. It's pretty short though, which makes me most sad. It would have been better as a longer book because then we'd get more invested in the characters and the story as a whole. Now, don't get me wrong, the first book was pretty short too, but that would have made a great prequel novella. These shifters are an interesting group and I'd love to know more about them. The love story between Eli and Liza is instantaneous and fierce. For a man/bear that was determined to hate any and every human, he loved just as hard.

So, I did enjoy it. It was a nice quick read, but I wish that there was more to it for us to get more invested in the characters. (including side characters like Eli's dad...)

I am not a shape-shifter/paranormal fan, however I WILL be reading more if these ladies are writing them! Great premise and the characters are interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable and Good Continuation of the Series! Feb. 26 2016

I couldn't wait to get my hands on Eli and Liz's story after seeing their appearances in book one, Rough. Eli had so much hatred and anger towards humans (his wolf mother was murdered by human hunters) that I couldn't wait to see him fall hard for a human mate...and fall hard on his ass he did! It was sweet to see his complete turnaround when he realized that Liz was his destined mate. He was alpha, loyal and did whatever necessary to make his mate happy.

Although Hard is the second book of The Bear Chronicles of Willow Creek series, it can be a stand alone read. For the first 20% of the story, the authors catches the reader up on what happened in book one so the reader doesn't get lost upon reading book two. Between books Rough and Hard, I liked and enjoyed Hard a lot more as I felt there was improvement in the writing and the characters' development. I also enjoyed the dual point of views from Eli and Liz. With that, I was able to better connect with their characters due to hearing their inner thoughts and feelings, thus making their sexual attraction (insta-lust) and union (insta-love) to one another more believable.

In addition, the plot and conflict were nicely executed and written. There was a nice balance of story with the sexy times. Overall, Eli and Liz were a good pairing and I found myself entertained with their story all the way through until the end.

Eli lost his mom to a hunter, and that left his father devastated. Eli was raised to hate humans because they are so destructive, couple that with the lack of humans in Willow Creek, there wasn’t anything to combat that image.

Well along comes Liza, Amelia’s younger sister, and all that human hates goes right out the window. Things were tough at first between the two, tensions were high as Eli tried to fight Liza becoming his mate. Lucky for us there is no fighting fate. Their chemistry was insane. Eli was just all around crazy for Liza.

There was a little rumble with Eli’s dad, but that was all worked out with Liza’s superb idea for punishment.

I can’t even tell you how much I don’t want to wait for Mason’s story. Ugh.... Hard was another shifter romance done well. Loved it.
