Some men aren't meant to be tamed in the next book in USA Today bestselling author Kathy Lyons's Grizzlies Gone Wild series!

Detective Ryan Kennedy doesn't have time for distractions. As the only bear shifter on the police force, he's responsible for investigating the cause of the mysterious flu-like illness that's ravaging the citizens of Detroit. But when the beautiful daughter of a rival clan's alpha asks for his help, Ryan realizes that she may hold the key to stopping the virus. If only he can focus on the case and not on how much he wants to kiss the enemy.

Francesca Wolf knows who's poisoning the city, and she has a plan to take him down, but it will only work if Ryan follows her lead. Frankie's strong, passionate spirit makes her slow to ask for help, but time is running out and the sexy-as-sin cop won't submit to her demands. Instead, he's giving her orders and firing up her passions just when she needs to stay calm. They'll have to work together-as equals-to save the city, to keep each other alive, and to contain a hunger that might just burn the whole city to the ground.

4.5 stars Taming Her Mate is the sixth and final book in Kathy Lyon’s Grizzlies Gone Wild series. While it isn’t necessary to read the whole series, it is necessary to read books four and five (Alpha Unleashed and Bound to the Bear) first. The first three books in the series (The Bear Who Loved Me, License to Shift and For the Bear’s Eyes Only) take place in and around Gladwin, Michigan and the Gladwin State Park. The books are lite, taking place in a setting you want to be in. On the flip side, books four through six are dark, gritty, more violent and take place in Detroit, Michigan. Originally the series was only supposed to be three books. Thus, books one through three have endings for their individual couples, with a story arc playing out over the three books. Books four through six are in essence a new series that I like to call Phase Two. Again, the individual couples have their own endings and there is also a story arc playing out over the course of the three books. Phase Two takes place in Detroit where people are becoming sick and some are even dying. Some people have become disfigured and have turned into monsters. The CDC has dubbed the illness the Detroit Flu. The city has been quarantined, left to fend for itself, with no one coming in or getting out. The bear shifter clan known as the Griz under their new alpha has figured out how people in the city are being poisoned. They even know their rivals are behind it. What they don’t know is where the poison is being stored or how to truly stop them. Detective Ryan Kennedy is a bear shifter and the only shifter on the Detroit police force. He’s been working tirelessly for the past week, with little to no sleep, trying to end the poisoning and get the city back to normal. Ryan has been betrayed by everyone in his life. In fact, within the last week, he was almost killed by his former alpha. Ryan has lost the ability to trust anyone and with humans not knowing about shifters, Ryan finds himself in the sewers below the city alone, chasing two wolf shifters. Francesca “Frankie” Wolf knows who is ultimately behind the poisoning in Detroit that has made people sick, turned some shifters into hybrids (half human, half shifter) and made full shifters stronger and more aggressive. She has a plan to end the poisoning and get the city back to normal. She just needs help to do so. When she stumbles upon Ryan in the sewer, she knows he’s a good man and that he alone is the only person who can help her. When she realizes he’s dying she knows she has to save him. But to do so, she must turn to the Griz clan, the sworn enemy of her Wolf pack, and hope they believe her. Together, Frankie and Ryan battle to save the city and bring those involved to justice. In the process, they discover the attraction between them is too strong to be ignored. The two risk being cast out of their groups because of their crossbreed involvement. These two are simply amazing. Frankie is all heart and passion. She’s a fighter, who’s tough as nails, but prefers to use her head instead of her fists. She prefers to see the good in people and is always thinking of others before herself. Ryan simply longs to be accepted and loved for who he is. He is driven to serve and protect every single person and shifter. This was a very good ending to the series.

If you like par-normal than this book is perfect for you. It has intrigue, a wolf and bear shifter that are finding it a little hard to concentrate on the job at hand. Which is saving the city. I couldn't put it down so you want to prepare for that. Thanks, NetGalley for letting me enjoy this book.

What’s causing the flu like symptoms everyone is having? Could it be, shock! contamination? Who would do such a thing? That is what we find Ryan Kennedy, Detective trying to figure out. Who is he? Only a bear shifter and a member of the police department. Then of course there is Francesca Wolf (Frankie). Guess what she is a member of? The Wolf Clan. Can they find out who is putting the poison in the water? Is it Frankie’s brother? Her father? Why are they doing this? Will they find true love or is it just lust? The only way to find out it to read the book. I enjoyed the story. The writing was spot on and kept your attention. I would recommend this to those that enjoy paranormal stories. Thanks to netgalley and the publisher (Grand Central Publishing) for the ARC for an honest opinion of this story.

As the only bear shifter on the Detroit police force, Detective Ryan Kennedy doesn’t have time for distractions, but the beautiful daughter of a rival clan’s alpha has asked him for help in this riveting, emotionally gripping and sassy read. Ryan and Francesca are two strong characters who enthrall readers with the sparks that fly everywhere throughout this romance. Not only are they from rival clans, but to begin with Ryan believes that Francesca is just as guilty as her family in the troubles that face the city and the shifters which keeps attitudes a bit snarky, defensive, emotionally charged and intense but the attraction is undeniable and the more he gets to know, the more he wants to believe that she truly wants to put a stop to what her family is doing. The plot is fast paced with lots of thrills and suspenseful surprises to keep readers glued to their seats. The clashes of stubborn wills and the firing up of passions adds lots of entertainment to this story including a some sassy dialogue that invite readers to chuckle as Ryan and Francesca strive to work together as equals in order to save the city. Readers can’t this book down once they start reading it and they should beware of the sparks that just might burn the city to the ground and the climatic conclusion that causes some jaws to drop in surprise.

She is the daughter of the local wolf alpha and she needs the help of bear shifter Ryan Kennedy to try to solve the mystery of the flu like epidemic affecting all in Detroit. Ryan is the only shifter on the Detroit police force and Francesca(Frankie) Wolfe as long admired the wok of this detective bear shifter but for them to solve the mystery he needs to listen to her. Can two such dominant people learn to work together and as they learn to trust one another will more develop between them You will need to read to see. This is the seventh book in the series and even though it can be read as a stand alone I do think it is far better to read it as a series.

If you like stories with girrrrl power Taming Her Mate is for you. Francesca Wolf is a wolf shifter doing what she can to keep her alpha father and her brother from destroying their pack and the city. Grizzly shifter Detective Ryan Kennedy doesn’t trust anybody but he does admire Francesca. When they meet the chemistry is terrific and they are one of my favorite couples in this series.

Sexy and engaging, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Frankie is a wolf shifter that never shifted until she was exposed to the serum activating the shifter genes, leaving her as a half breed. Ryan is a bear shifter cop investigating the serum creating havoc in the city. When they end up working together, their animals seem to speak to each other. I particularly enjoyed the wolf/bear paring as it is different from most shifter novels. The author created characters that I cared about and made me feel invested in their story. If you enjoy the genre, you will love this book. While this is a stand alone novel, you will enjoy it so much more if you've read the prior books in the series. The author is on my must read authors' list
