    This second Broken Hill installment was as good as the first. Braxton's dislike for humans is well known within the clan, even though most do not know why. When he met Neve, his dislike was very evident. But as with all shifters when they meet their mate, all things change. My one issue with the book is that there is no conclusion to the issue with Kevin. That issue seems to have just been dropped and forgotten, which seems to make the ending of the book appear rushed.

    This is the first in this series that I read and it was a freebie in a joint book with Ryzard (Broken Hills Bears series). I liked but didn't love this story. I really liked Neve but thought Braxton was rather too one dimensional and didn't get what Neve saw in him. I was irritated by parts of this story and it was too short and too rushed to be a credible story (aside from the shifter factor, which is the given in the story). I like this author's style but of the two stories I have read to date This is the first in this series that I read and it was a freebie in a joint book with Ryzard (Broken Hills Bears series).

I was irritated by parts of this story and it was too short and too rushed to be a credible story (aside from the shifter factor, which is the given in the story). I like this author's style but of the two stories I have read to date I have felt that she could have done so much more with the ideas and premise of the stories. I know short stories are better for series but I prefer a more developed tale with more indepth characterisation. Not a bad read but not very memorable and definitely not a story that you would revisit or that engrosses.

    Story is ok, editing is meh I'll forgive a lot of story holes, retreads, or editing crashes if the characters or writing is engrossing enough. This series didn't get there for me. It's pretty formulaic, and the author AND the editor need some more training in punctuation, verb tenses, and the difference between first and third person voice--it literally went from first to third and back in a single sentence once or twice.

The storyline is fascinating and is very emotional with a little twist on how the characters meet. The flow of words is so great and the pace of the story is just right. Ariana Hawkes is truly gifted and so very talented and creative. The storyline is Magnificent and well written. I enjoyed the storyline so much I couldn't put my tablet down. But from the first page to the last I was memorized. The characters are engaging, fabulous and fantastic. The dialogue is passionate, realistic, and you will love the interaction between the main characters, the chemistry is scorching hot and they leap off the page with life that's so real. The scenes description are vivid, beautiful picturesque and dynamic with lots of passion. All of these books can be read as a stand alone but they are a FANTASTIC series. This is a another great story of Bear Shifter Romance Broken Hill Bears Book 2. This is why I enjoyed it so much! Excerpt From: Bare Knuckle Bear: Bear Shifter Romance Broken Hill Bears Book 2 by Ariana Hawkes This material is protected by copyright. He was walking quickly, so focused on his thoughts that he didn’t notice the female human in front of him. The first thing he heard was a loud ‘hey!” and the second was two soft breasts pressing against his ribcage. He instinctively reached out and caught the tiny human body before she fell, dimly registering that she was trembling violently between his hands, like a bird, and that her scent was sweet, fresh, and surprisingly arousing. And then he was hit with a shock of recognition as he found himself looking down in a familiar pair of blazing hazel eyes. I know this human. Her auburn hair was loose this time, and it flowed past her shoulders, the sun making it glow like a crimson halo. Her cherry-pink lips were parted in an O of surprise, and she was wearing a bright pink t-shirt. In fact, it was so bright that it made his eyes hurt. And he was no expert on fashion, but it seemed to clash badly with her hair color. But the most surprising thing was that on the t-shirt, written in bold white script, were the words “I can help you. I meant what I said. Call me on 414-837-6014”. His bear let off a deep, rumbling purr. “It’s Braxton, Neve, and I owe you an apology.” Her mouth fell open. “You reckon?” she said into the phone, surprised at how confident she sounded, despite the fact that her body was responding in a very unexpected way. Her heart was fluttering and adrenaline was shooting through her veins. What’s wrong with me? He sighed. “I shouldn’t have said those things I said yesterday. I was angry. I don’t like accepting help from humans. I feel like bears should be self-sufficient. But that’s no excuse. I’m very sorry, Neve. And I’m also sorry that the version of me that you saw yesterday was a disappointment from the bear you thought I was.” Wow. She was too shocked to say anything. He’s apologizing? He’s really apologizing? And, after dismissing me like a fly that landed on his shoulder, he’s managed to hunt me down, and call me up? None of it made any sense. Silently, she replayed last night’s events. He tore up the business card that she offered him, and then he walked away from her. She stood and watched him go. And then she picked the card up, because she didn’t want to leave it lying around so anyone could find it. “Neve? Are you still there?” There was a new uncertainty in his tone. “How did you get my number?” she demanded. He gave a short laugh, as if that was the last question he’d expected. “I saw your name on your business card –” “In that fleeting second before you tore it to shreds?” she said, her voice heavy with sarcasm. “Yes. I’m sorry for that too. It was very rude.” “Mmm hmm.” “And then I looked you up on the internet.” She frowned, wondering what he’d found. “Among other things, I saw that you recently graduated summa cum laude, top of your class. You’re a very smart woman, Neve.” “Yes I am,” she said, with an uncharacteristic burst of pride. “I’m sorry that I was an ass and made that comment about hiring a top-flight lawyer and dismissed your kind offer to help me out for free. It was very unfair.” This is a Must Read. There is lots of romance and it's Scorching HOT, You don't want to miss this book! Now if you don't like Paranormal Bear Shifter Romance be warn this is a lovely HEA. But if you don't like this kind of genre then this won't be the book for you. But I think you will enjoy every word and agree with me that it's worth it. If you are looking for a Spectacular paranormal series to read, then you want to read this series. This is a great book to add to your TBR list. I'm so excited about reading the next book in this series. I Highly Recommend this Book. If you believe in the world of paranormal romance, the possibilities are endless and fascinating!

    I received this for a honest review. We were first introduced to the Broken Hill Bears clan in book one. I am sure if you read book one you fell in love with Freya and Xander as much as I did. Well this book is about another Broken Hill Bear member called Braxton and a sweet lawyer by the name of Neve. Braxton had some serious issues going on, he hated humans. His hatred for humans was genuine. It had to do with his past and once you read and learn about his past you will understand him more. The I received this for a honest review.

His hatred for humans was genuine. It had to do with his past and once you read and learn about his past you will understand him more. There was something strange going on at the fighting matches. Seemed like there were no fans in sight. Everyone was yelling hatred remarks, holding up anti Broken Hill Bear sights, and much more. It was almost like an angry protest which was very distracting to Broken Hill Bears. I just loved Neve. She was this strong amazing woman. Though you might not think so looking at her. She had found herself not finding a job in a law firm as she hoped and with a loser boyfriend that had not even had sex with her for 2 years. She actually looked forward to the moments that her boyfriend was not home. Neve wanted to help with the problem that the Broken Hill Bears were going through. She had idolized each and every member in the Broken Hill Bear Clan, especially Braxton. I know she had to be disappointed to find out how hateful Braxton really was. She never dreamed that he would hold so much hatred toward humans like he did. Braxton is fighting with the fact that Neve is his mate. His mate can not be human. right? Now here he is having to ask for her help in hopes he can keep his bear from claiming her. He will find his protective nature kick in at the sign of danger. When pushed against the wall Braxton will have to face the truth. Only problem is, did he wait to late?

    It seems that lately, all the paranormal books I read each have a new twist and take on what a shifter is about, how they love and cherish their mates, and what it takes to get them to that point in their life that they just can't keep on going without finding the peace that their mate brings to their animal half, as well as their human side, and this book excels at giving us all of these and so much more.

Very well written and easy to follow, Ariana Hawkes once again takes us on a journey of discovery and love. Neve has been in more than a slump for way too long. Her leech of a boyfriend, Kevin, both who had been orphaned at a young age, has been dragging her down for most of the eleven years they've been together, never working and wasting every penny she manages to earn. She's fought her way through college, then law school with the highest marks in both schools, only to find herself working dirt jobs, while he sits at home smoking pot and playing video games. She hopes to get her big break while on a job involving the wrestling bear team of the Broken Hill Bears clan, only to find herself shot down and fired. Braxton hates humans and has an extremely hard time tolerating them, let along accepting them. When Neve pipes up during a meeting, he listens, but discards her ideas, not only because it would mean doing things the human way, but having to interact with them also. But these two are not finished running into each other. The fates are having fun playing with these two, and soon, they both hope to find peace and some healing of very old wounds. This is definitely a book you won't want to miss out on. A wonderful short read. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

He tracks down Neve and convinces her to help him. Neve finds the source and Braxton cannot believe who the culprit is. Working with Neve, however, has his bear driving him crazy with the urge to mate and claim Neve, one he refuses because she is human and he gives her mixed signals. Neve could easily fall for Braxton but his passive/aggressive nonsense breaks her heart so she tells him where to go. He would have left it there but then he found a note and realized she was in danger. Great story! Lots of energy and emotional range in the characters coupled with plenty of action and a little intrigue (was a shock who was behind the smear campaign).

I loved it so much, and am eager for the next book in the series now! It had a little of everything you would want, and although Braxton was the big rough tough bear, actually he turned out to be a big cuddly bear, which is what we were hoping for, and Neve managed to stand her ground and find what she was looking for and what she suspected was underneath that gruff exterior all along. To be fair, after the life she had lead and the ex-boyfriend she had endured, she deserves to have something pretty amazing in her life so when Braxton finally realises that she is his mate I couldn't have been more happy for her. This book is worth the time and money, it's fantastic and I cannot praise it highly enough. It is simply amazing, another GREAT from Ariana Hawkes. 5 Stars isn't enough, but that is all I cant give on Amazon - but it deserves more - I LOVED IT.

These two are mismatched from the start, which made it all the more fun to see them come together. The author did a wonderful job of creating interesting dynamics in this book. I love shifter books and the way the fighting and clans were set up was new and interesting. The plot twists were fun and unexpected. I also liked all the characters from the main characters to the secondary, they were all well written and engaging. Neve was knocked down time and again and she fought back each time and she never backed down. Braxton had childhood demons chasing him, and it was great to see how Neve helped to change his perspectives. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys shifters, romance, or just a fun read.

    Great story, this is gonna be a great series! Loved that sexy bear Braxton who doesn't like humans (he has a real good reason). And Neve, she grows a pair of you know what after meeting him.

I didn't and had no problems. The author lets you know the important parts from the first book. I was lucky enough to receive a complimentary copy in return for a fair and honest review. And honestly if your a shifter lover or bear lover, your gonna love this book! Definitely recommend it, it was very entertaining. Good enough I'm going back and reading the first!

He is such a brute in the ring and so is the rest of the team and she loves watching. Whenever she has a little extra money she gets a ticket and goes to a game to watch and drool. The fighting that the bears do in this story is a lot of showmanship outside the rink and a lot of bare knuckle beating the heck out of each other in the rink.

The fighting that the bears do in this story is a lot of showmanship outside the rink and a lot of bare knuckle beating the heck out of each other in the rink. At the next fight Braxton saw t-shirts professionally made smearing their reputation. Neve makes an impression by standing up and saying they can work through the human laws to take care of this problem. Braxton sticks all four paws in his mouth talking back with her, but still being impressed. Who would be trying to hurt the Broken Hills Bears and take away their fans? Will Braxton get over his dislike for all humans or just nerve? I volunteered to review this ARC book nestled inside a collection using my own opinion.

    An okay read. A slightly different bear shifter story. Interesting angle with the wrestling. Found Neve a bit pathetic in regards to Kevin but she seemed strong with Braxton. I have read this before but cannot remember where. Braxton has good reason to hate humans but when Neve comes into his life and helps him with a big legal clan problem, his feelings become conflicted. Braxton’s bear on the other hand knows Neve is his mate but the human side of this shifter set keeps hurting her. Neve is a new An okay read. A slightly different bear shifter story.

Braxton’s bear on the other hand knows Neve is his mate but the human side of this shifter set keeps hurting her. Neve is a new lawyer and working for the Broken Hill Bears is a feather in her cap, that fact Braxton has been her favourite wrestler (big crush) is not a hardship either, until he hurts her with the things he says. But she was with Kevin, a deadbeat boyfriend she didn’t kick to the curb when this book starts, so she is a bit of a doormat too. The path to their HEA is bumpy but a fun read. Rereading the box set through Kindle Unlimited.

    This is the second book in the series and really grabbed my interest. Braxton is up to be Xander's second in command. After a fight he and Xander have a meeting with the heads of the human fight organizers. Neve has a crush on Braxton and offers them some free legal advice. Someone is trying to ruin the Broken Hill Bears. Who would want to do that? Braxton must overcome his dislike for humans and work with Neve. Will he be able to do that?

Can Neve be persuaded to help them after the way he acted? Will they learn each others secrets? Will he save Neve from her ex? This story has a little of everything in it. It has mistrust, fighting, betrayal, bad guys and trust. I enjoyed this story and give it 5 stars. I was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Fighting in bulletproof rings and armed police escorts can get very trying when it's the one thing that Braxton hates the most, humans. Now, with a threat to his clan, he is determined to figure out what is going on by enlisting a very human Neve, even if he has to keep himself in check every time he's around her. Neve just wants to be the lawyer she knows she is meant to be and worked so hard to get there and when things get confusing with Braxton she's not sure what to do.

Neve just wants to be the lawyer she knows she is meant to be and worked so hard to get there and when things get confusing with Braxton she's not sure what to do. When the unexpected happens and sparks fly things get a bit more confusing for the both of them. As usual, Ariana Hawkes really knows how to pull me into her world and keep me there. I received this book for an honest review.

    MUST READ!!!!!! As usual, this book is just as good as the first one in this series. Braxton, a Bear Shifter fighter that hates humans, meets Neve, a human lawyer, who happens to be his mate. Braxton is having a hard time accepting it. How could a human be his mate? This is a great, sexy Bear Shifter romance that ends with a HEA. Looking forward to more books in this series. I received this book as a gift for an honest review. Patsy Sacco

    He hates humans and wants nothing to do with them, she has idolized him since she first seen him years ago. Fate brings these 2 together and somehow they heal each other of the past but can they have a future. I received an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. This is book 2 of Broken Hills Bears series by the author. I loved it because it is more of a I want to say clan aspect instead of a romantic aspect in the book.
