The events of being a soldier have deeply scarred him, both physically and mentally. Jessie went to college to become a teacher but she hasn't been able to find a job in her own town, her sister inform her where she live there is a lot of schools that are in need of teachers so she moved. This unlikely pairing is fraught with problems, namely that these two characters tried to fight off their mutual attraction. I enjoyed how the author allowed their relationship to unfold. I enjoy the fact that you can read these books in any order. There’s plenty of suspense, and sexy times to keep you entertained. I am totally captivated with the mystery from the first page and had to discover their secrets. I couldn't put my reader down until the very end. It was such a great read and the chemistry between Jessie and Connor is fantastic! I really liked these characters even though I felt sorry for Connor at first.

Just love these bear shifters....read the full 4 book series and I'm happy to be able to read about some of the other ranger bears living there and catching up with the original four...Owen, Mason, Ezra, Knox. Now is Conner's story. We've seen him in action in a few of the other Were-bear books; he's a ranger in the Everglades and Owen is his Alpha. This book unfortunately starts with Conner being summoned for a rescue in the swamp area and when he gets there, dives in to get one of the bodies....he scents that it is not just some murdered were-bear, but its his sister-in-law. He's so thrown by this site; wondering what could have happened; where his brother could be and how he will react to this; when all of a sudden another ranger brings up a second body, Conner's brother, Logan. They all immediately know that the murderers are the were-crocs! This has been an ongoing battle in the Everglades between the shifter crocs and all other shifters that live there. But this is all too much for Conner who suffers from PTSD since fighting in Afghanistan....it sends him into a change, and a quick run to try and get away from the anger, anguish, hurt, despair he's feeling. Now he has no family left except for an aged, sick mother living in assistant care, and his six year old niece, Peyton; Logan and Aliana's daughter. Poor little Peyton is now orphaned and Conner is her legal guardian, even though he knows not what to do for or with her. What a conundrum! Along walks in Jessie to the rescue!! Jessie is a newly graduate teacher! Jessie has just moved to the Everglades to live with her sister, Nikki. Nikki talked her into moving down with her because here there are a lot of job opportunities for Jessie in her field. A lot of schools Jessie can apply to for a job; not like back home where there was just one elementary school with no positions available. Just as Jessie gets to Nikki's place, Nikki receives a phone call whereby she is told of the murder of her close friend, Alaina, and her husband, Logan. She's broken over their deaths and worries for poor little Peyton; wonders how Conner can be holding up. Nikki gets the brilliant idea that Jessie should talk to Conner for the position of nanny, caring for Peyton. After all, Conner now needs someone to take care of his six year old niece and Jessie is an elementary teacher out of work in need of a job; she's great with kids, having taken many children's psychology classes and all. Jessie and Conner can help each other plus Peyton will be cared for by someone recommended by Alaina's close friend, Nikki. When Conner first meets Jessie, in the waiting area outside of the funeral being held for his brother, Logan and SIL, he's a complete AH to her! She doesn't want to go to the interview he sets up with her and tells her sister, Nikki that this will not work because of his rough attitude. Nikki talks her into going because after all, Jessie is a very compassionate person and look how much Conner's been through; look at poor little Peyton being an orphan too. She talks Jessie into going to speak with Conner for the position of Nanny after all. It seems that Jessie and Conner can help each other in more ways than one.....taking care of Peyton, as well as, helping each other in lots of different needs and ways too! This is a very loving, heart breaking story. It brings a lot of different topics to us besides murder, grief, desolation, desperation and loneliness, as well as the problems of PTSD. The stress that many of our soldiers live with when they return from wars and the field of battle that's not very well addressed by our government. Although Conner has been under therapy for his PTSD, the murder of his brother and SIL along with the loss of friends and a buddy in the field in Afghanistan has sent him back to nightmares, sweats, pills, and alcohol. Nothing seems to be able to help him and he's in a downward fall with no end in sight. This is such a wonderful story line that Meg has given us with a very tragic beginning, a wonderful set of circumstances presented to our hero and heroine to deal with, and a great ending. I will not tell more and spoil it for you, but I will say we get to catch up with many of our other heroes and their loving spouses too! Meg Ripley has done a great job once again!! Giving us a great story and continuing the wonderful world of the Everglades' Ranger Were-Bears! Enjoy ladies!! Enjoy all!!

    Conner Griffin woke immediately as the radio called for the search and rescue team to respond. He shifted into his bear as he ran so he could cover more ground faster. Owen, his alpha, told him through their clan’s mental link that there was a body in the swamp, possibly a murder victim. They strongly suspected the croc shifters who had been causing more trouble lately, thinking that they had more right to the Everglades area than any of the other types of shifters. When Conner shifted and went Conner Griffin woke immediately as the radio called for the search and rescue team to respond. He shifted into his bear as he ran so he could cover more ground faster.

They strongly suspected the croc shifters who had been causing more trouble lately, thinking that they had more right to the Everglades area than any of the other types of shifters. When Conner shifted and went into the water to grab the victim, he recognized her scent! It was his sister-in-law, Alaina! Then a second victim was brought up on shore – his brother, Logan. Conner bent over and got sick, then shifted and just ran as fast as he could to release his pain. Jessie, fresh out of college, needed a job and was invited by her sister to join her in Florida. There were more teaching jobs available to her there than in their small town. Nikki had moved to Homestead near Everglades National Park. As Jessie glanced at her GPS, a bear ran across the road right in front of her! When she finally got to her sister’s place, she was flustered, having gotten lost 3 times with the rerouting over an accident in the swamp. Nikki got a phone call and her face paled. Her best friend, Alaina, had been murdered. Their 6-year-old, Peyton, just became an orphan and her uncle needed a nanny. Nikki pleaded with Jessie to take the job. Conner would be able to trust her and it would take one more worry off of him. Conner was struggling with his PTSD and the meds were not helping. The nightmares were back. He needed to be back at work where he could finally save someone. When he finally meets Jessie, he’s not very pleasant. But with urging, Jessie takes the nanny job. As difficult a beginning as they have, they may have found a perfect place to find healing and build a new family life. But would Conner accept this new life thrust upon him? And would they find justice for the murdered members of his family? This is a well-written story by this author, containing twists and turns, mystery, suspense, and family. I highly recommend any of these books. This series is definitely one you won’t want to miss and will re-read often just for the joy of it!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I did not expect this book. It was one sad page after another. A PTSD suffering bear-dude, who hated being a shifter, was an alcoholic, and a bad (terrible) care giver to his grieving niece, who was also the one to find his sister in law & brothers dead bodies, thus loosing almost the last family he had. And hates life and all the pain in general. Sees a therapist, downs pills with his alcohol, and doesn’t see a way past today. Super exciting, amiright? This dude was a MESS. Right up to the end.

And a woman who stood by him- when she most likely should not have- with all his issues, and the fact that none were resolved (by the end we were TOLD he’s better, but not shown him accomplishing this feat) she had zero reason to even LIKE this dude- let alone fall in love with him. He was basically a walking/talking/drinking suicide waiting to happen. He spends the entire book pushing her away, brutally, only to have her be okay with it almost immediately. Which was also annoying. And then when she found out she was pregnant- and was all ‘omg, I can’t have a bear baby! I have to have an abortion!!’ Then tells him that- only to immediately take it back with his ‘I’ll do better, marry me!!’ Bullshit. I literally went, “uh, what the hell just happened!??” Needless to say, this was not for me. It was like someone took a piece of paper and wrote down all the shit it would take to seriously fuck someone’s life up, and mashed it into one character. I like to escape while reading, and some drama is cool, but this shit was literally WAY over the top. And depressing.

Connor is really rude and surly to Jessie but she wants to help them anyway. Soon things are going well until Connor can't cope anymore and breaks down in front of Jessie. Jessie conforts him, but he reacts very badly the next day and he fires her. Connor is drinking too much and with the murders of his brother and sister-in-law still unsolved, he begins to break down even more. I really like this series and this book was a little emotional. I really felt bad for Connor and Peyton. Connor had so many bad experiences and he didn't know how to cope with them. It was good that Jessie stood by him and tried to help him. I like that he finally realized he needed help. Good one.

    I normally don't read books like this! Now I want to go read the 2 before this one and the rest after this (if she puts out more). At the first I was a little concerned where the story was going and then it fell right into place. I love how Jessie was able to use her training for teaching to help Payton with the lose of both of her parents, and at the same time help uncle Conner get over all his issues and let love into his heart. *Spoilers* Conner realizes that he has fallen in love with Jessie I normally don't read books like this!

But after talking to her sister that already know Conner was a shiftier because she was friends with Conner brother and sister in law that were killed. Once she tells Conner that she is pregnant he tells her that he loves her, wants to be a family with her, wants their child and asks her to marry him, she says yes. *Spoilers*

    I know it's not the first book in the series but I was able to read as a stand alone. I honestly didn't remember this was a shifter book until halfway to about 3/4 in. It wasn't talked about a lot. It read mostly like contemporary to be honest. Meg Ripley I've read are mostly Sci-fi romance so this was different. Connor has some major issues.

He drinks himself drunk first couple days. Both Payton and he have had it rough. It's easy not to like him. I don't think I particularly warmed to him much...even at the end. So it was hard connecting to the characters completely. Jessie is pretty sheltered and is naive but she's good at helping them. When she's told his secret she freaks out understandably. All in all nof a bad read. I won't read more of the series though. It didn't draw me in enough.

    Another well written emotional paranormal romance in the “Shifter Nation: Werebears Of The Everglade” series. This book is a little bit different to the other books as it focuses more on the emotions of the hero as he ineffectively deals with the horrors of PTSD, the pain from losing his brother and wife, and the difficulties in accepting the love of family/friends in order to heal.

I really enjoyed this book, and my heart broke for the hero as he struggled, and rejoiced when he was able to effectively cope after allowing himself to lean on the strength of his mate and clan and achieving his HEA. Beautifully written and is a recommended read. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I read the book in one go as I just couldn't put it down. This is a must have read and I thoroughly recommend that you read it too.

    I love Meg and I love her shifter stories. This is a tough one because Connor has PTSD and he's just lost his brother and sister in law and now he is Guardian to Peyton. He is not a lovable alpha male in most of this story. But Jessie is such a sweet sweet person and she is just what he needs. Do they have a rough road to HEA...yes. But, Meg writes such great stories. Connor has his friends at his back and Jessie has her sister to help her when Connor reveals his secret (ssshhhh he is a shifter) I love Meg and I love her shifter stories.

I can't reveal too much more because it'll ruin some surprises but I kinda smiled after the part when the fork goes in the light socket and we finally get an answer.

    A short but sweet and captivating story. I just cannot get enough of these Everglades male bear shifters. I am normally not that much for shifter stories. But this series is amazing. Connor is a male shifter that has a lot thrown down on him. He has a lot of pain that he has to let go but it is very difficult for him. He hires a nanny and she is full human and he thinks she is not for him because he has the bagage with him. And a bear shifter and a human woman is not a good match is the opinion A short but sweet and captivating story. I just cannot get enough of these Everglades male bear shifters.

A sweet story with chemistry, passion, attraction, drama, dark thoughts, family changes, twists and emotional ups and downs. Absolutely worth the read.

    I highly enjoy the Werebears of the Everglades series with its scenery, characters, and pack loyalty. The first two novels have been well written, had good character development, and have left me wanting more. But this one takes the cake so far. With more depth to the male character than we’ve seen so far and showing his vulnerabilities and real struggle made me connect more with him. For being a short novel it still had a slow moving build to the plot that made you come back for more.

    I have enjoyed all of Meg Ripley's shifter books and this one is exceptional and worth reading. She has created characters that have depth and a vulnerability that a reader can relate to. Conner fights his inner demons in the form of PTSD daily and then becomes guardian of his niece, Peyton, through tragic circumstances. To help guide him through these changes, Conner hires a nanny named Jessie who understands Peyton and begins to help her heal. In doing so, she gets close to Conner.
