My Hunger to Bear (The Everson Brothers #5)
by Olivia Arran
Winning Connie back is the only thing I have left to live for...
Bear Shifter Ralph Everson escaped the hectic pace of the city and returned to his roots in Craggstone Town, but not before he managed to screw up his life and hurt the only woman he's ever loved--his unclaimed true mate, Connie. So, he does the only thing a man in his situation can. He waits for her to forgive him. Watches over her and keeps her safe. He still loves her and, before everything had gone wrong, he was pretty sure she had loved him back. So ... patience. Yeah, not exactly his thing.
But then someone hurts Connie. Right in front of him.
Her time is up. No more waiting around. He wants a second chance to prove that he can be the man she needs.
He's the only man I've ever loved and the only man I hate...
Connie has spent years putting her life back together after Ralph Everson ripped it apart, building her little bakery business into a town favorite and throwing all her energy into ignoring the tall, sinfully handsome man who refuses to leave her alone. Even the memories of his kisses have been banished and locked away. She's safe. Fine. A little frustrated, but she'll survive.
Then, fate decides fine isn't good enough. Disaster strikes, a deadly fire ripping everything away from her in an instant. To make matters worse, he is the one to save her.
Now he's back in her life, invading her space and starring in her dreams. His help is the last thing she wants to accept, but she doesn't have a choice. She doesn't have anyone else.
She might need him, but it doesn't mean she has to like it. Ralph Everson broke her heart once before and she's sworn he'll never get close enough to do it again.
Fate has set the couple on a path that neither can escape, filled with heartache and hope. Secrets need to be told and betrayals brought into the light, but can they let go of the past and forgive, or are second chances a thing of fairy tales?
**This book can be read as a standalone, but for maximum enjoyment it is recommended that you read some of the other Everson Brothers books first as this concludes the series. This romance contains bear shifters, a curvy heroine, and a Happy Ever After.**
