Synopsis (Goodreads):
He's big, burly, and way smarter than your average shapeshifting bear. He's also about to get trapped by own his game. . .

Lou Crushek is a reasonable, mellow, easygoing kind of guy. But once someone starts killing the scumbags he works so hard to bust, that really gets under his fur. Especially when that someone is a curvy she-tiger with a skill set that's turning Crush's lone-bear world upside down--and bringing his passion out of hibernation. . .

As a member of an elite feline protection unit, Marcella Malone has no problem body-dropping anyone who hunts her kind. But Crush is proving one major pain in her gorgeous tail. The only reason she's joined forces with him is to track down the wealthy human who's got her entire species in his ruthless sights. It sure isn't because Crush's stubborn and contrary attitude is rubbing Cella in all the right ways. . .
Thoughts on Bear Meets Girl: I ADORE Crush. I don't know if it's the whole thing where he's often mistaken for a crazed meth dealer, a badass biker, or what, but I got such a kick out of how such an easygoing, upstanding guy could tangle with the worst if needed and come out on top.

Plus, he went all fanboy on his favorite hockey players and I just couldn't resist him after that.

On the other end of the spectrum is Cella. She likes to talk with her fists more often than not and she sends poor Crush into a tailspin whenever she's around. Which is adorable. C'mon, guys, lets all indulge in a collective Awwwww.

So, yeah. They seem like an unlikely pair until you see the sparks that sizzle whenever those two are around. And the whole pretend boyfriend thing? HA! Poor Crush. Cella's brutal with those she likes.

LOOOOVED Crush making friends with Novikov and how he had to put up with the other bear's OCD tendencies. ADORABLE. Also, the way Novikov manages Blayne. OH! And Cella's dad making Crush all tongue tied because he's such a hockey great.

We got to see more of the Dee-Ann/Cella dynamic (HEH! THE RANDOM PUNCHES! LOLOLOL!) and see how some of the hybrids Blayne and Dee-Ann rescued are getting along. Hannah. HANNAH.

I feel like I'm devolving into extreme caps locking, so I'm just going to say... STILL LOVING THIS SERIES HARD!
