    I received an ARC and I am leaving a voluntary review.In the middle of interviewing for nanny's for her sweet little girl Luci, Adela starts to daydream. But this is not a bad daydream, it is more along the lines of her opening her own store, moving out of the place for the last three years she and Luci have called home. Her boss/all but brother is now married and it just feels that she should be out on her own.

This book is about two people who belong together but their individual issues keep them apart. Marcus Haught needs to learn to trust and change his ways. Adela Choi as a parent needs to think about not only herself but also what's best for her daughter. They both need a second chance at love. Marcus was trouble with a capital T. He was a jealous hot head who needed to figure out how to grow into a true man. He had to grow up and now he has to prove himself worthy of a second chance at love, fatherhood, and as a true partner to Adela. Prison helped to shape Marcus and convince him that change was needed. These two are determined and hard-headed individuals which makes the road to a second chance very steep and rocky. Adela needs to let go of the hurt in her past and to drop the walls that surround her heart. If she can't get past that then all of Marcus' effort could be for naught. They have to be able to survive the dangerous and evil men from Marcus' past first. There's a little something for everyone in this book love, forgiveness, anger, action, and danger. The two have a long journey to get past hurt feelings, earning trust, and again finding the love and passion that they both had once for each other. What are these two going to have to face before their HEA? Enjoy the book and let their story tug at your heart strings while you hold out hope and root for the two lovers.

    Another fabulous book by Jasmine Wylder. This is book 2 in the bear shifter series and just as good at the first one. I loved Adele in the first book and how devoted she is to her daughter Luci and her friendship with Isasis and Becky. Come now to book 2 she is now looking to make herself into something more than just a mother to take care of her and her daughter. She is opening up a store in town and needs to find a nanny, that's where Jasmine comes in. She turns out to not only be a good nanny Another fabulous book by Jasmine Wylder.

Come now to book 2 she is now looking to make herself into something more than just a mother to take care of her and her daughter. She is opening up a store in town and needs to find a nanny, that's where Jasmine comes in. She turns out to not only be a good nanny but also a good friend and she's a jaguar shifter which doesn't come out right away. Marcus is out of jail now, he was put into jail during book 1 when he was involved in a kidnapping plot. The feelings between Adele and Marcus are just as strong as ever, they are truly fated mates even though Adele is human. Will she give him a second chance? Will he finally realize that there was nothing between Adele and Isasis and Luci is his daughter? This is a great read, very quick, the story sucks you in from the beginning. I loved the characters in this series. I look forward to Jasmine's next series and what is yet to come.

    I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.In the first book Marcus came across as an immature, jealous jerk.

The exiled bears, the drug runners, and the issues that arose from that were interesting and I thought could lead to some stories in the series I would enjoy reading. But there were a few times in the book that I had to look back to see if I had missed a section (nope, turns out things get referenced with no background) (view spoiler)[especially Adela's date with Greg. There was no scene of him asking her out or anything to help with that setup (hide spoiler)].

    It was great to learn more about Adela after reading the first book in the series. She was raising her daughter alone after her shifter mate (Marcus) accused her of cheating when she became pregnant. She suffered again when he was part of the group that kidnapped her in the first book. He is now out of jail and determined to prove his worth to her if she will let him.Adela wants to protect her daughter but she can't seem to resist Marcus. He looks like a bad boy and has made some poor choices. S It was great to learn more about Adela after reading the first book in the series.

He looks like a bad boy and has made some poor choices. She knows he didn't want to hurt her and was trying to protect her during the kidnapping. She doesn't want him to break her heart again. I liked that both characters get a chance to narrate the story. It helps you connect to them. It is especially important as you need to know Marcus really wants what is best for Adela and Luci. Marcus, Adela and their daughter Luci make a great family and you want her to give him a second chance. I do recommend reading the first book before this one but you could read it as a standalone.I am voluntarily reviewing a copy I received.

Brilliant reading. Fantastic

    I must say that Marcus was definitely NOT on my favorites list as a supporting character in book one of this series. His story with Adela wasn’t revealed until now and I must admit I have had a change of heart. I still think he went about some things totally the wrong way but he tries really hard to redeem himself this go ‘round but no one’s perfect. I actually felt sorry for him, he does have a heart and it belongs to Adela.

Luci is a handful already and very adventurous, kinda like her daddy, lol. Their road is a bit bumpy and dangerous but they two are soul mates and their struggle will only make their love for one another stronger as they analyze, what’s really more important.I received an ARC of this book and voluntarily reviewed it.

    Love all these stories.I always have to read one of Jasmine Wylder's books. The plots as well as the many characters make each book worth it. The main story is about Adela her little daughter Luci and her ex lover Marcus who is Luci's daddy. Even though Marcus thinks the baby is her bosses. This is where I'm a little off from the story. In Every shifter story I have read the animal side always knows who is their mate.

Plus all the extra stories she includes for us to read for free. I missed the opportunity to review the Advance Reader Copy, but was happy to pay the .99 price for this book.

    I am excited that this book picked up pretty close to when the last one left off. I had a change of heart towards Marcus when he was shot so many times trying to save Adela. His pig-headed jealousy was the root of their problems and he had a lot to make up for. I loved Jasmine and her protectiveness with Adela as well as Luci. I loved that he wanted to be part of their life, no matter what happened in the past. Can Adela trust him and feel secure that he will believe in her.
