Product description

Product Description

Brand new full-length version. * * * Can be read as a standalone book. * * *

What if your fated mate was just an app swipe away?


Ryzard Adler has always been the hothead of the Hope Valley bears, and a dark past makes him believe that he's not mate material. But when his clan forces him to find a mate through Shiftr and a 95% match comes up, an even darker secret comes out in the shape of Marilyn Faustino, which threatens his whole future in the clan.

When Marilyn had a one-night stand with a sexy, husky-voiced stranger two years earlier, she not only got scared half to death when he accidentally shifted, but became the mother of two identical cubs. She never expected to see their father again, and when Ryzard comes back into her life, seemingly as irresponsible as ever, the feisty beauty is less than impressed.

Ryzard needs to show Marilyn that he can be a good father to the boys. He still doesn’t believe that he’s good enough for their mother, but will his efforts convince him that maybe he’s mate material after all?

This latest episode in the Shiftr: Swipe Left for Love series is full of heat, laughs, lovable characters, and the cute little dating app that shows that every curvy girl has her purrfect mate out there!

Please note: This book is inspired by the short story which was featured in the Shifters In The Spring boxed set in early 2016 - but this story is a new, much lengthened version of it, only loosely based on the boxed set story. It is 34,000 words - twice the length of the short story.

This is a standalone, short, sweet, steamy read, perfect for a lunch break, bath time, or a little dose of me-time, wherever you are. HEA and no cliffhanger!

An additional story is included as a special FREE bonus!

This one was a little different from the other books in the series. Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed reading Ryzard (BTW...love the name).
The characters are funny and fit right in the story line.
     Ryzard is long haul truck driver that's a Bear Shifter, he has been on edge for long time.
And now Conner his Alpha asked the remaining unmated shifters to apply on the app Tamika started. But Ryzard doesn't believe he's mating material especially what he did years ago, in a dive bar, blind stinking drunk.
     Marilyn had everything any women would want, money, prestige, a mansion, fancy new cars all the time and a handsome husband. Though there sex life was a little bland they were happy, also trying to have a baby. Everything was a fairy tale come true, or was it? Coming home early one day from work, she  finds evidence, that he has been cheating on her with her best friend. When she faces him with it he doesn't deny it, but said it means nothing. Leaving Marilyn stopped at a bar and got drunk. But as you all know you can get drink all you want but your problems are still there the next morning and then she had additional problems. A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.

Another good book in the Hope Valley Dating App. Can be read without having read the others in this series. Ryzard is a close second as my favourite in this series purely for his strength of character.
I read this book in the Shifters In the Spring box set and liked it so much I bought it for the extended version.
Ryzard is a trucker who had a rough start in life and is letting it rule his life now. Too much drinking and one night stands have led him nowhere.
He actually has met his mate but doesn’t remember her but his bear does and is getting more uncontrollable.
Marilyn was in a very bad place when she met Ryzard and had a drunken one night stand with him. Now she has two shifter cubs and has moved to Hope Valley so they can be raised near shifters.
Two years after their night together he is made to sign up on the dating app and his mate is on there too but he doesn’t remember her. Big Oops.
I really liked Marilyn, she was a take no prisoners’ woman. I also agreed with her take it slow approach and making sure Ryzard had changed.
Ryzard had hit bottom and took a really good look at his life after seeing Marilyn again. Not even knowing about his cubs he turns things around to prove he is good enough for his mate. I loved his interaction with the boys and how he really came good after such a horrible start to his life.
Lovely ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Marilyn had a passionate one night stand after discovering her husband and best friend were together for the last five years 21 October 2016
By DarkJade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ryzard is the hothead of the Hope Valley bears and a dark past makes him believe that he's not mate material. His clan forces him to find a mate through Shiftr and a 95% match comes up, an even darker secret comes out in the shape of Marilyn, which threatens his whole future in the clan. Marilyn had a passionate one night stand after discovering her husband and best friend were together for the last five years. She ends up with twin boys from that night and she never expected to see their father again. Ryzard knows he needs to change his ways and act instead of reacting. Tamika sees his need and offers great advice. I like Ryzard and know many people have difficult backgrounds but they must want to change their behaviors, and he is on a mission to be his best self for his boys. Marilyn upset me with her negative attitude toward Ryzard. She met him once and automatically characterizes him as a horrible person. She also yells at him for mot being there while she was pregnant nor when the twin were born when she made no effort to find him. Even if she had, that still gives her no right to hold his absence against him. He did not know and tries to make up for it as soon as he finds out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some shifters can change their ways 12 October 2016
By Barbara VW - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If the name Ryzard sounds familiar, you are right. Ms Hawkes has edited and lengthened Ryzard's story. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Ryzard's becoming a decent man and bear. The unmated bears convince Ryzard that he needs a mate to help him control his emotions. Reluctantly he agrees and is quickly matched with a woman who was a one night stand two years ago. He was so drunk then that he doesn't remember her now. I wouldn't want to be in his shoes (or paws) right now.
5.0 out of 5 stars THIS AUTHOR KNOWS HOW TO PULL YOU INTO THE STORY! 19 January 2017
By NavyWave62 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I haven't read all the books in the series, but they are stand alone stories that pull you into the lives of the H/h. Our H starts out not being a very dependable guy, most of it due to how he grew up in an abusive home. But, he grows up fast, and became a great caring character.

Our h is strong, and doesn't let life get her down. I enjoyed her take charge attitude too.

The lovemaking was very passionate and descriptive, but not in an erotic way, but you may need to take a cold shower.

The author makes you care for this couple, and the romance builds slowly. We get a great HEA, no cliffhanger and a story that will leave a smile on your face. (ljb)

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheating is cheating, didn't finish 16 January 2017
By Sierra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I only got about 10% into this book because of a cheating issue. Our heroine meets Ryzard at a bar hours after she finds out her husband is cheating. She then proceeds to drink a lot and (not too drunk to understand what she is doing) sleeps with him. To me this is cheating. She's still married, not even separated. What she's doing is no better than what her husband did. I know that others may not feel the same way but, even though the setup for the story seemed intriguing, I chose not to finish since I had lost all respect for the couple.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Story & Characters 22 January 2017

This is the second book that I read from this author and was not disappointed. Ryzard I'd Force to sign up for this shifter app his 95% was linked to a human named Marilyn. Marilyn and Ryzard already knew each other but it was a one night stand when they were both blind drunk,
Meanwhile Marilyn gets pregnant with his twin cubs. When she goes to meet him again he didn't remember her which pissed her off.
Marilyn decides to rent a house but curiously Ryzard wants to find out more. He goes over to her to her house in his bear shape then stands across the road when he sees 2 cubs playing outside and realizes they are his. The bear nose knew that they were his.
Marilyn was freaked out when he told her that he wants to know his cubs who instantly fall in love with their father..
To find out more about Marilyn and Ryzard you are going to have to buy the book.
The characters and story are well flushed out. Plus there's is a bonus book which I also enjoyed.
HEA.
