While I really liked this story, I couldn't help but wonder, could Kathi make our villains any stupider? I mean lets be honest a guy who has made his way to the top 10 FBI most wanted isn't going to make as many mistakes and put himself in a position to be caught like Lipscomb did. Thor is an old friend of Samuel's. After years of not talking, when she's hanging onto her life by a thin line she reaches out to her old friend. Kaleb is more than just a werebear that all of the pride thinks he is. He's determined he doesn't need or want a mate, but when he meets Thor, all bets are off and he can no longer deny the attraction. Between trying to discover who is dirty on the police force, dealing with an abusive father and a brother who threatening to go on a killing rampage, things are never easy for Samuel's Pride. While I liked the story, I guess I just get kind of annoyed by how stupid Kathi makes her villains in her books. I also would like to read about a female who isn't constantly trying to overcompensate for being a female. In just about every book of Kathi's the female is either a cop, military, or mechanic. While I love a female who isn't wimpy and relying on a male to constantly save her, it would be nice to read about one who isn't stupidly determined to protect herself and would seem to rather die than take the help offered for protection from the males or other characters.
I am really enjoying the Samuel's Pride series. Each member is unique and adds some interesting drama to the storyline. Kaleb is a grizzly shifter, he is big, strong and can be scary. Thor is a cop who is smart, tough and takes no prisoners. When she is hurt she calls out to the one person she always cared about to say goodbye, but Samuel is stubborn and wont let her give up. This was a great storyline, there is a lot of secrecy and shifty situations that are sure to keep you glued to your seat. Fast Paced , engaging , complicated, betrayal and humor make it so you can't help but fall in love with the characters. Thor is one tough cookie and Kalab might have met his match. I think as Samuel's pride grows the males are going to have to watch the females because if they ever ganged up on them they would be unstoppable. I like that there are so many old friendship in this series, the fact that the characters have history make for a more realistic situation and add some fun. Ms. Barton writes a mean story and as always captivates the reader from page one. I was given an ARC for an honest review
Kaleb is book 3 in the Samuel's Pride Series. He is a were-bear shifter and a loner until he join's Samuel and the others to rescue Thor (Tania). Thor is a childhood friend of Samuel's and a cop and has been beaten and left to die by a drug lord and thinks of one thing as she is dying - to reach out to Sam to let him know where she is so he can come get her body. Kaleb doesn't want a mate just like all the others but knows the minute he sees Thor that she is his. Follow the journey that kaleb and Thor take along with all the "others". A definite must read by the fabulous Kathi S. Barton
Bear Down You will be wrapped in intrigue from page one. Kathi has a way of weaving tales that makes you fall in love with her characters. Kaleb was a bear shifter and loner but he found acceptance in Samuel pride. Thor is a childhood friend of Samuel's and was ready to end it all but not alone so she reached out to Samuel who sent Kaleb to find her. This was a great book there was humor, suspense, dynamite chemistry and great action. The cast of characters just keep getting better and better and Kathi's knack for writing strong and fierce women is phenomenal. I recommend this book is you're looking for alpha women and the men they bring to their knees. This was another great addition to the pride.
Bless Kathi Barton! When her "Force of Nature" series ended, I was so sad. It and the "Aaron's Kiss" series are my favorite Barton books. This third entry in "Samuel's Pride" seems to feature some of my favorite elements of both series, and I have a new love. The "Pride" books feature different shifter species banding together into a group growing in numbers and exhibiting an array of talents. A swirl of fae and vampire mixes in the intrigue of the storylines, and the fast pace and surprises revealed along the way keep readers involved in Kaleb and Thor's book and anticipating the next.
