Werebear’s Mail Order Mate

by Candace Ayers
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Stand-Alone Paranormal Romance

Available on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited

Down and Dirty

A fun little book, full of silly and just enough cute to make you smile.

What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

Tanner Holt is a bear shifter who neither wants nor needs a wife. For the wealthy rancher, his daughter Chloe, foreman Josiah, and ranch hands are all the family he needs.

Chloe Holt loves her dad, but she needs a mom. So, armed with her dad’s credit card, the ten-year-old finds them the perfect wife and mother.
She prays that the pretty lady with the kind eyes will give them a chance… and that her dad doesn’t ground her for life when he finds out!

Heather Ayer is down on her luck and has just done the craziest thing. She applied to a mail order bride agency. Marrying a man she’s never met is crazy. Then again, maybe it’s the fresh start she needs.

Thoughts on Werebear’s Mail Order Mate

There is something bubbly about this, a sweetness that is both trite and inane – but you just gotta keep reading it. Kinda like the parent trap movie… silly, tropey and just sugared enough to make you smile. You know where this book is going to go and the short length means it doesn’t take long to get there, but it’s a tender ride and Chloe is adorable.


  • Wholesome in a standard (though he’s a shifter) romance way.
  • Heather is sweet.
  • Love Chloe.


  • Bit TOO tropey.
  • He’s a shifter but it bears (haha) little to the overall plot. A blip.
  • POV switches too frequently, even from paragraph to paragraph… unintentional? Regardless, it was annoying.


Third Person, Multiple POV

3.5 out of 5 Stars

Standard fare for a shifter romance, but cute enough to while away an hour or so during your afternoon. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
