RabidReads.com.This author has been tackling tough subjects with this series The previous book talked about domestic abuse of a secondary character This book is no different The heroine is half hyena In previous books in the series the bear and wolf pack have had very bad run ins with hyenas They decided to run all hyenas out of their territory in a move called a purge.Trista is half hyena She has lived a tough life trying to follow rules in a world that she really doesn t fit in Even the hyena pack treated her poorly Once her father died, she had the little bit of protection she had, stripped from her Her half brother is now in charge of the hyenas and he doesn t like her.Keen is seen as a happy youngest brother of the Abrams brothers Looks can be deceiving though Keen had a rough childhood He did something that he now has to live with His punishment was stiff and probably only made things worse Now his bear just wants to kill everyone Add to the fact that everyone keeps treating his fated mate like she is the scourge of the earth Even his family is treating her badly.This story was interesting Normally this series has been mostly a fun loving series This story didn t have the giggle moments that I m used to in the previous books There were a few here and there Mostly this book touched on some tough subjects It was interesting to see characters that I ve come to enjoy, act like bigots towards a new character because of the way the pack of her species had acted, not because of her actions Now I read this book before what happened in Paris and the book was written long before this all started But, the story does hit very close to home #Book à Roaring Up the Wrong Tree ⚛ Librarian Note Alternate cover edition ASIN BMMQXGYWhat should Trista you do when faced with a hunky werebear who can t decide if he wants to kill her or screw her Half hyena, Trista has spent years rotating between Grayslake, Redby, and Boyne Falls When the Grayslake Itan the local clan s werebear leader orders a purge of all hyenas, she finds herself fighting to hold onto the hand to mouth life she s created Her carefully built existence is threatened further when a gorgeous werebear strides into her life and demands not just her heart, but her very soul She ll think about it, but not until her shift ends at sevenKeen seems like a happy go lucky, sex and sin werebear, but that s nowhere near the truth In reality, his inner animal wants to go on a bloody rampage and kill half of Grayslake just because it can After that, it wants to claim the seductive, curvaceous half hyena female Keen can t get out of his head The animal doesn t care that most bears wouldn t mind a little hyena tartare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner Nope, it peers at her through Keen s human eyes and has one thought mateWhen push comes to shove, Keen has to decide if he would rather have the family he was born with, or Trista the woman who makes him realize that true happiness comes in a lush, hyena shaped package The third book features Keen, the neglected baby brother, and Trista, the tormented half hyena sister to the hyena Alpha The Good, The Bad and Everything In Between Solid character writing I started this book because I was in between ARC reads, and frankly I wanted to clear off my kindle I was kind of meh about the earlier two books, and I didn t have alot of hopes for this one I was pleasantly surprised it was unexpectedly touching, the story pulled me in and while there are always familia The third book features Keen, the neglected baby brother, and Trista, the tormented half hyena sister to the hyena Alpha The Good, The Bad and Everything In Between Solid character writing I started this book because I was in between ARC reads, and frankly I wanted to clear off my kindle I was kind of meh about the earlier two books, and I didn t have alot of hopes for this one I was pleasantly surprised it was unexpectedly touching, the story pulled me in and while there are always familiar elements in shifter romances, this one was well done A tortured, protective hero I never realized how crappy Keen s family was to him, which frankly made me like the heroes from the earlier books less I will say that it made the entire family situation feel a littlereal than what s typically portrayed in these books usually the family may exchange some banter, but there s never this deep resentment and anger because of past actions and I enjoyed that realistic touch It made Keen come alive in my mind, and differentiated him from the other Abrams Other than this, Keen s protectiveness of Trista, and women in his family in general, was lovely A long suffering heroine Trista suffers for being a minority shifter half hyena and tortured by her half brother for as long as she can remember Trista and her human mother spent most of her life never staying in one place for too long because of shifter laws No insta love, really Part and parcel of shifter romances are the instant connection usually by the hero to the heroine that prompts them to pursue a relationship Keen is attracted to Trista right away, and he does his fair share of mine speak, but the actual love and relationship builds gradually It s when they start to share their pain and Keen stands up against everyone to protect Trista that you see their relationship start to blossom I really liked the fact that this book is about two incredibly likeable leads who find solace in each other As they were treated unfairly, you can t help but root for them to stand together and tell everyone else to eff off Deus ex machina in full effect The story was plugging along, building towards an tense and emotional climax..and then, a plot twist comes along that pretty much wraps up all the problems up in a neat little bow A bit too neatly But I was so invested in rooting for Keen and Trista, that I let it work on me, and I only side eyed it a little Standalone HEA Yes, it s part of this continuing series, and yes you d benefit from reading the earlier books, but I don t think it s necessary.The Bottom LineI think it s my fave of the series, an unexpected treat I love Celia Kyle s writing Each new book just seems to be better than the last.I really loved the first book No Ifs, Ands, or Bears About It which set up the marvelous bear clan of Grayslake and was then continued with All Roar and No Bite which saw the hyena purge which then has consequences in this book.I d felt sorry for Keen in the previous 2 books and I m happy that he got his HEA here This book was full of emotion and backstabbing vengeance and a bear who knew he wanted his woman even w I love Celia Kyle s writing Each new book just seems to be better than the last.I

his woman even when she wasn t sure 4.5 StarsI loved this book I love that Keen was such a hidden treasure This was by far my favorite book so far I loved that He had a dark past and that even though he was strong enough to be an Itan he chose to let others lead as it suited him better, even though he was stronger I loved that he was immediately absorbed in Trista and that he protected her I love Parker, he s always growing and growling I love that he is willing to apologize and he is extremely cute and loveable.If I was Lau 4.5 StarsI loved this book I love that Keen was such a hidden

extremely cute and loveable.If I was Lauren I probably would cut Van Just saying he needs a good swat.I absolutely loved Trista and her inner strength I wasn t sure how Ms Kyle was going to be able to pull off the Hyena bit but I loved her She was dealt a raw hand in life and there was much that was taken from her in a plot twistI cant wait to keep reading this series I find I quite dislike series books that make previous H s or h s jerks Why have the person likable in their book and then a total jerk in a later book That happened with Van AND Ty in this story When you add that to the fact that none of the other characters were really likable either I had a hard time with this book I really liked the first two books in the series and am hoping the forth will belike them. Definitely the darkest part of the series so far, but fills in quite a few details from previous subplots The last Abrams I expected to be so dark and damaged inside was Keen Van did not surprise me in the least Shows the darker,historically traditional aspects of clan life in this world, but also gives a glimpse of how the world is being slowly changed and pulled away from some of thedamaging traditions.
