Release Blitz & ARC Review!- Hard (The Bear Chronicles of Willow Creek, #2) by Julia Keith, Emily Minton

Hard Banner
Title:  Hard (The Bear Chronicles of Willow Creek, #2)
Author: Julia Keith, Emily Minton
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publication Date: February 28th 2016

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 that don’t believe in love at first sight discover it in each others arms?

Hard 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.

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via The Hype PR in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! ☆

I think I'm one of those special people who only notices sign ups last minute and am literally racing against time to get my review done in time for the blitz.

Luckily for me, though, this book was addictive to get into and I read it pretty fast.

Hard, picks up right after Rough left off-- *and YES, I encourage you to read these in order*-- and felt more whole and complete than its predecessor. While I did enjoy bk1, my biggest complaint was that I didn't feel a lot of character personality, rapport with the other protagonist, and not much plot. It was basically, the male lead had to find a human mate to minimize exposure of his town inhabitants and after he does, then BAAAAMM! Lots and lots of sex.

What works for Hard, was that it had more going on and natural turmoil coming into the picture. I liked the whole backstory and explaining of why Eli does not like humans, and why he's so adamant against taking a non-shifter female~~ journeying on to him meeting Liza who happens to be his alpha's sister in law and how he succumbs to his fate despite his dad's objections of it.

And as for Liza, after living in a foster home and not having much to call your own~~ to coming full circle, and discovering a new beginning with a family to call your own and a love of a lifetime.

For those of you who are hopeless romantics with a sprinkle of paranormal, hot sex, and destiny in the mix-- this is for you!

I can't wait for more from this series!
