Riley Miller is on the run. In an effort to do something nice, she lands right in the middle of danger. A trek to the wilderness will put her under Damon Daye’s protection, but it’ll also dump her in the direct path of one sexy, snarly lumberjack werebear, Drew. His interest is stirring up feelings she’s forgotten exist, but she can’t get too attached to him. She has two weeks to spend in the mountains, and after that, she must leave to reclaim her life back in the city. But the Ashe Crew isn’t making it easy on her. Here, she could find the life she’s been looking for if only her demons would stay in her past.
Drew Hudson is losing his mind. Coming off a devastating loss, he’s doing anything he can think of to keep his inner bear from going stark raving mad, including risky stunts that threaten to expose the Ashe Crew as bear shifters. When a chance encounter with a sexy hitchhiker settles his animal side, he can’t help but wonder about all the secrets Riley Miller is keeping. But when her past unravels little by little, he’ll have to take control of his animal in order to protect her.
And if he can allow this selfless, mind-consuming, tough-as-nails human to soften his heart, he just might find himself again.

In the next installment of TS Joyce's Saw Bears series, Drew & Riley find themselves together and boy does their journey take you on a fun-filled adventure. TS Joyce is one of my favorite paranormal romance authors and her shifter stories are always unique, and enthralling while she delivers a happily ever after for her characters and readers.
Riley is running from a viscous and mean ex-boyfriend, who doesn't seem to understand she is done with him and his abusive ways. When he is released from prison, he begins to pursue her relentlessly. She barely escapes him and flees to Damon Daye's home. She is the hired surrogate for Diem and Bruiser Keller and is carrying precious cargo.
Drew is fighting demons of his own. Losing his momma the way he did and watching his father hurt her all those years, compounded the hurt and ache for him and his bear. When a chance meeting on the side of the road happens, he realizes both him and his bear want to know Riley better.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading every last word in this book. The Ashe Crew and their mates were active participants and the feeling of home, love and friendship was a consistent theme. This is the sixth book and I would recommend you start at the beginning of the series so that you will have each character's background and what their story brings to the adventure!
