Top Off Tuesday: BEARly there (Heh.)

Posted 28 January, 2014 | Mary @ TheBookSwarm | | 33 Comments

Started by FeliciaChristi and Amanda, Top Off Tuesday is where a bunch of us share hot-hot-hot book covers (some we’ve read, some we’ve just drooled on). Head over to Felicia’s blog to share your ToT link and see what everyone else is swooning over.

Bears, missing nipples and a pretty boy’s smirk. What more could you ask for? (Oh, okay. The title placement. I know, I know. It’s OBSCURING THINGS.)

IFS, ANDS, OR BEARS ABOUT IT (Grayslake #1) by Celia Kyle
Paranormal (Shifter) Romance
204 pages, ebook
Available now (January 2014)
Publisher: Samhain Publishing

The first day of Mia’s new life in Grayslake, Georgia is not going as planned. The house her grandfather left her looks ready to crumble, boxes cover every inch of the floor and—oh—there’s a bear cub in her pantry. It gets worse when the cub’s uncle comes by and busts out his fur and claws while on her front porch. Then it gets loads better because suddenly there’s a hot hunk of badge-wearing werebear on her lawn ready to rescue her. Yum. Of course, he has to ruin things by trying to take the cub out of her hands. Ha! The cub is hers… No ifs, ands, or bears about it.

Werebear Ty can’t seem to get the curvaceous, delectable Mia to understand that, even if she is one-quarter werebear, she isn’t keeping the cub. Ty is the Grayslake Itan, the clan’s leader, and the little werebear is going home with him… Unless it isn’t. It’s her smile. If she’d stop smiling and being gorgeous, his inner-bear would support him and Ty would get his way. But the beast wants to make their woman happy, so it’s perfectly content to let her do as she pleases. Then things change. Threats arise, danger comes close, and Ty demands she return to his den. No ifs, ands, or mates about that.

  1. I have to laugh every time I read “werebear”. I keep thinking Carebear and wasn’t that a cartoon? Sort of takes the HOT out it for me. But who knows, that cover certainly doesn’t remind me of any children’s cartoon. O_O 🙂

  2. Werebears is just too funny! I’m with Rachel, I keep thinking carebears when I read the synopsis. That cover is half sexy, half utterly silly, like a graphic Stephen Colbert would use on one of his many rants about the dangers of bears. So of course I love it!

  3. I almost wish they had moved the “o” in “no” up just a tiny bit so his nipple was in the middle. That would have really just pushed this cover over the top. NO NIPPLES! 😉 I like the bear’s face. He’s all “how the hell did I end up on this cover?” Win!

    This cover really bothers me. Like, reaaaallly bothers me. Why is he smirking? Why does he have guyliner on? Why are his eyebrows so waxed? Why is his hair weird? Why is he standing like that? WHERE IS HIS NIPPLE?

    I am intrigued by the idea of werebears, though. I’ve read about some that make brief appearances in books, but a whole book would be awesome. I’m gonna let you guinea pig it for me first, though.

  5. Huh. Not sure what to think about this one. The description has me a tad curious as it sounds like it’s more of a ‘fun’ type of story.

  6. Oh Werebear Ty, I’m glad you’ve made an appearance in my life again. You sexy beast you. I didn’t notice the lacking nipple at first, but now it’s really throwing me off. Maybe it’s a mark of their species? I hope you read this one to report on how it is!
