Review @OpheliaDragons @AmelieHunt - Bitten by Ophelia Bell (Black Mountain Bears #2)

Black Mountain Bears #2
by Ophelia Bell

Goodreads blurb:  Fate and Desire make strange bedfellows…

Jasper Stonetree used to think he knew what he wanted, but meeting the beautiful pair of ursa who just saved his life changes everything. Autumn Sundance and Gunnar Windchaser have him twisted so tight he can’t think straight. He’s actually considering falling for them, which is completely out of his character—romantic entanglements only lead to pain, after all. He knows that better than anyone.

Except Autumn, whose pain is so palpable Jasper can almost taste it. She alone understands the danger in loving too fiercely, and she has paid the price—a devastating tax that has come back to haunt her.

To save her, Jasper must accept the truth of what he is. He is an ursa male, and one of two chosen to be the future mate of a high-ranking female.

And that female is in trouble.

On the chase to find the missing piece of his incomplete soul, Jasper is forced to make a choice. Leave behind his true family—his blood—or take a step there will be no retreat from to rescue the woman he loves, and forge a new family outside the ursa Sanctuary. 

About the Author:  Ophelia Bell writes about sex. She doesn’t write sex to arouse others, though that is a happy side effect. She writes sex for the very specific and personal reason of experiencing those things that tie her to the earth, that keep her grounded. It might seem counterintuitive – that sex elevates us (at least if it’s enjoyable) because of all the analogies to flying away we see in erotic writing, but Ophelia thinks Milan Kundera asked the right questions:
“The heavier the burden, the closer our lives come to the earth, the more real and truthful they become. Conversely, the absolute absence of burden causes man to be lighter than air, to soar into heights, take leave of the earth and his earthly being, and become only half real, his movements as free as they are insignificant. What then shall we choose? Weight or lightness?” – The Unbearable Lightness of Being

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

***Received a copy of the ebook for an honest review

The cover definitely fits in with all the Amelie Hunt sets having both beasts on the cover!

This is the 2nd book in the series, and it is definitely for adults only due to the steamy content.  Just like book 1 there are two guys and a girl.  This one has more with the guys together, and their love for each other.  I definitely think you want to read them in order to build your understanding of the world Ophelia has created.

This is Jasper’s story (Emma’s cousin).  Jasper has some baggage as well as Autumn.  The three of them have to work out their issues.  For the most part, there is not much action; this is mostly emotional and romance.  I definitely understood the world more and enjoyed reading it!

I recommend this series to the bear shifter fans!

Interested in reading???
