Review of Axman Werebear (Saw Bears Book 5) by T. S. Joyce

Arranged marriage, hidden agendas, deep secrets, and heart-pounding romance come together to tell Bruiser’s story in the 5th installment of T. S. Joyce’s bestselling Saw Bears series. 

Diem Daye has led a sheltered life. As the only breeding female of her kind, her father has kept her tucked away and heavily guarded. But when he makes a deal behind her back, and marries her off to a local lumberjack werebear, she fights everything that is expected of her. As the dust settles and she begins to realize just how special her arranged union to Bruiser Keller is, she’ll have to decide to make the ultimate sacrifice for her kind, or live and love in the safety of her new mate’s protection. 

Bruiser made a deal with a legendary shifter to save his family, but the consequences run deep when he returns home to the Asheland Mobile Park. Now he must marry a woman he’s never met, and if Diem’s pissed off countenance is anything to go by, she doesn’t want this pairing any more than he does. Bruiser vows to soften her hardened heart, but her secrets could bring danger to his beloved Ashe Crew, and could alter the course of his life forever. 

Love comes at a cost for shifters like Bruiser and Diem. If they want a real shot at happiness, they’ll have to learn how to survive each other. 

Content Warning: explicit love scenes, naughty language, and piles of sexy shifter secrets. 
Adult only bear shifter romance.

Overall Rating:  4.25 Rockin’ ★★★★
Thank you, T.S. Joyce! Axman Werebear is the perfect "cherry on top" addition to the Saw Bears series.  All members of the crew have found their mates and are content and happy, just the way we as readers like.  Horace "Bruiser" Keller and Diem Daye complete the Ash Crew perfectly in this paranormal romance set in the Montana Mountain trailer park.

This delicious read begins with an agreement made between Damon Daye, a dragon shifter and Bruiser a member of the Ashe Crew.  He agrees to marry the dragon’s daughter, sight unseen if Damon will help his family.  Bruiser did not know what he was getting himself into, but all he cared about was helping his half-brothers protect their crew.  Damon Daye provided the strength and power to help him succeed in protecting his brothers’ crew and now it was time for Bruiser to marry his daughter. 

When Bruiser first meets the stoic Diem he isn't sure what he's getting into, but as the walls she has built around her heart begin to crumble and he gets to know her, he and his animal know she will be theirs forever.  Diem didn't have any clue about the agreement that her father had made with the bear shifter, or that she would be getting married the same day she met him.  Although she had always known that she was expendable to her father and he looked at her as a breeder, not a daughter.  She thought she was losing her freedom by marrying the bear, but learned quickly she had gained her life back instead.

T.S. Joyce is amazing.  We revisited the gang and their new little arrival was an extra plus! This is a quick and extremely satisfying read.  Another great story added to my library.  Can't wait to see what this fantastic author will give us next.
