I kind of binge-read Terry Bolryder last weekend. I read Big Bad Bear, the Dragons of New York trilogy, and Bear-ever Yours. Honestly, I wish I could get her on my blog for an interview and a guest post! I can’t even get her attention! LOL!
Well here is an overall review because they all get the same rating from me:These are all big sweet romance with steamy sex scenes. BBB and Bear-ever were m/f; Dragons of New York were all m/m/f. What can i say? I love formulaic romance because it makes me happy and give me a light heart. I know what to expect and Terry Bolryder delivers! I like knowing that there will be an HEA and that there will be sex scene to titillate me at certain parts. I appreciate the care Terry gives to her plot and characters, developing them fully within her formula. I very much appreciate that she copy edits (not that there aren’t some issues, but very, very few). All in all, all five of the books I read get 5 stars from me. The Dragons of New York were wonderful (snarky, possessive, and BA), but I really, really, really like her Bears. Those guys are the best BBFs!
Here are the blurbs:
A fun, standalone bear shifter romance with no cliffhanger!
Leah Maitland isn’t expecting much when she wins an unexpected, all-expenses paid trip to the Caribbean. Just some sunshine, fruity drinks, and maybe a break from her demanding job as an office manager to the worst boss ever. She definitely isn’t expecting Sky Weston, a hot, athletic local dive instructor with surfer blond hair and Caribbean blue eyes who seems determined to rock her world.
Sky is tall, intensely handsome and a polar bear shifter whose family moved to warmer climates. From the moment he looks into Leah’s sparkling brown eyes from across the room, he knows he wants the curvaceous beauty for his own.
But as things heat up in the Caribbean, danger is also close on their heels. And if Sky can’t convince Leah to trust the passion igniting between them, he might just lose her to the evil bear that is willing to do anything to make her his.
In the mountains above Bearstone Village, a legend has found his mate.
His name is Zeus, and for years he brought the thunder as an elite special forces squad leader and undercover bear shifter. Now that he’s out of the service and living quietly in the woods above a remote mountain town, he has just one mission left. Win over the heart of the curvy waitress that his bear knows is his mate. Too bad Zeus knows more about combat than dating, and he hasn’t yet managed to ask her out.
Carly is just trying to make the best of things. Bad luck in love and in life has landed her in Bearstone Village, stuck with debts from a former relationship and making her way as a waitress. She enjoys the rare moments when she sees Zeus Wilson, a sexy recluse who comes down from the mountain sometimes to drink at the bar and fix Carly with a heated gaze in his sparkling blue eyes. Even if it seems like he’s never going to make a move.
But when a local motorcycle gang threatens Carly, Zeus is forced to intervene and take her back to his cabin where he can keep her safe. With the beautiful mountains around them, it’s not long before sparks are flying between the bear and his sexy mate. But Zeus is afraid to tell Carly the truth about what he is, and the men who want to take her are quickly catching up.
But he isn’t called Zeus for nothing, and if anyone threatens his mate, this big bad bear is fully capable of striking them down.
They’re hot as fire, and if you mess with their mate, you’re bound to get burned.

Still, when her rescuers take her back to their New York loft, she’s confronted by a mystery she never expected. Dragons and other shapeshifting creatures exist.
