I think this one was my bad...

A Bear Walks Into a Bar - Eden Winters

Somewhere in my brain I decided that because I really like Eden Winters and I loved her book 'Naked Tails' it was about 'possum shifters. It was funny and well written and just a hella' good read and because this books title sounds like the opening to a good joke...right, I mean how many times have we heard them...'a man walks into a bar...' 'three men walk into a bar...' 'a priest, a lawyer and a doctor walk into...' no, wait that was a boat but you get my drift right. So now we have 'A Bear Walks Into a Bar' I saw that and I laughed. How could this not be funny and good...apparently it can happen.

 

I also have to admit I was a bit of a victim to shiny cover syndrome...you know where you look at the book cover and go "Oh pretty, must have" so I bought it and it's pretty much down hill from there my friends.

 

Yes, the bear did walk into the bar and he did it after he went over the mountain...so to speak. Actually he owned the mountain. Apparently Sawyer is the last remaining bear in his Sleuth and he rules his world with an iron fist to the point where he now controls all of the different animal groups living on his land including the wolf pack that basically wiped out his family and how does he does this you might ask...well isn't this obvious? With sex of course. Yep, he just f*cks them all into submission, ok that might be simplifying it a tiche but really not much. It would seen that bear shifters are very sexual creatures. Especially when they hibernate...sleep, eat, f*ck, rinse and repeat. 

 

But nothing and I do mean nothing holds a candle to those foxes...holy moly those little critters make the bunnies look like monks...abstinent monks. Seriously I'm exhausted just reading about it...and reading about it...and reading about it...

 

I honestly have been pondering what to say on this one since I finished the book yesterday. I mean seriously I freaking love Eden Winters and not loving one of her books just seemed like such a foreign concept to me...unheard of I tell you. Her Diversion series is an absolute favorite of mine and I've thoroughly loved a number of her stand-alone books...did I mention Naked Tails? I actually resorted to peeking at some of the current reviews and I noticed one that said there was no plot and I have to admit I can see where that may have seemed to be the case for me it felt more like the plot got lost in an orgy somewhere...

 

I still really like Ms Winters, but just not this book. What I learned was that funny titles does not always equal funny story and foxes are horny little critters...damned. So the bear may have walked into the bar but next time I think I'll leave him there.
