THIS QUOTE FITS BOTH OLIVER AND HIS PATIENT MATE SEBASTIAN! HERE IS MY REVIEW:
Oliver (Whitedell Pride #6) by Catherine Lievens
reviewed by: Becky
What matters is not what you are, but who you are.
Oliver is human, or at least he was until the Glass Research Company kidnapped him and experimented on him. Now he has a bear sharing his mind, but he’s not able to shift, and he’s confused. Is he a shifter, or a human? What’s worse, he’s getting sicker every day, and no one seems to know how to help him. He can’t even bond with his mate because he doesn’t want Sebastian to hurt if something happens to him.
Sebastian wants his mate to be cured, and the only way to do that is to go to New York and kidnap one of the company’s scientist. With the help of his pride brothers, he manages to do just that, but having Oliver cured doesn’t mean all their problems are over.
Oliver will have to deal with learning how to shift and trying to convince Sebastian that he’s fine and that he can be claimed, but once he manages to do that, other problems arise. Will the two lovers finally have the time to just be together, or will the pressure push them apart?
I can't say enough about this series! I love how the books flow, you get answers to questions about whose book might be next, but you never know, as you have more than one possibility. Poor Oliver was so ready for his HEA with Sebastian, having been experimented on and a bear added to his DNA, he has been trying to come to terms with it and shift, but he is slowly wasting away. In this one, Oliver gets a cure (finally!) and is able to shift into his bear (and how it happens is oh-so entertaining!).
This whole series is lovely and you will be hooked in book one, and like me by the time you get to this one, you will be climbing the walls for the next! Thanks Catherine, for a shifter series that stands it's ground and gets better and better with every book!
the 5 kodiak bear rating!
I HAD TO GIVE THIS BOOK THE KODIAK BEAR RATING FOR SWEET OLIVER! HERE IS THE EXCERPT AND BUY LINK:
Shit. Shit, shit, shit! Oliver didn’t know what had happened or how to solve this. Well, he knew what had happened. He had shifted for the very first time, but did he really have to do it while naked in bed with Sebastian? Even more so, did it really have to be like, seconds after they had just made love and claimed each other?
If Sebastian hadn’t been so quick to move away, Oliver would have shifted while…ugh, he didn’t even want to think about it!
“Uh, love? Careful with those claws, okay?”
Oliver realized that he had been digging into the mattress so he awkwardly tried to get his claws out of the fabric, but it seemed that every move he made, he managed to just rip it apart a little more. He was scared to move, but he could hear the bed creaking. It wasn’t exactly made to host a fully grown bear plus his mate, even if Sebastian was in human form.
YEP, YOU REALLY DO NEED THIS ONE, HERE IS THE AUTHOR BIO, HER LINKS, AND AS AN ADDED BONUS, A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS ANSWERED JUST FOR YOU:
