Vega Brothers : Alexander (The Bear Shifters of Vega Ranch) book 3 by Kim Fox
Polar bear shifter, Alexander Vega, is the last Vega brother who anyone thought would take on a mate. He’s surly, gruff, grumpy and just plain rude. And that’s on a good day. He hates women and doesn’t want them anywhere near the Vega Ranch. But his bear has other plans…
BBW news reporter, Elena King, has come to the Vega Ranch to visit her sister Ava. What starts off as a nice visit quickly goes down hill when a hot, muscular naked man comes running out of the forest, throws her over his shoulder and takes her to an abandoned cabin in the woods. Her anger turns to fascination to something more when she realizes the true nature of the man living with the wild beast inside him.
Alexander will do whatever it takes to claim Elena as his mate but it may not matter either way. General Samson is returning in a few days to bring the polar bear shifter off to war and he’ll be parted from Elena forever. Or will he?

Alexander is one grumpy bear.
He didn’t really want to leave the army, he felt useful, at the ranch he just feels like a burden!
He remembers how his mother treated his father, and swore he’d never have a mate, and he’s going to make sure his brothers don’t get theirs either!
Elena is Ava’s sister (Julius’s mate from book 1) she’s come to visit her sister (hearing about her whirlwind romance, she wants to make sure her sister is ok) She’s a reporter in New York, living the fast life. Although it’s getting too fast for her liking, maybe a week away visiting her sister will recharge her batteries.
What she doesn’t bank on is being kidnapped and held in a small cabin in the middle of nowhere!
I really felt sorry for Alexander, not fitting into your own family had to be hard.
Not thinking your good enough for a mate!Then we read the reasons why he’s the way he is, and it breaks your heart.
My thoughts change from annoyance to pity. He really is a very misunderstood bear!
Elena is fun, a quick wit and a snappy comeback. I don’t think I’d be too impressed if I’d gotten kidnapped (not even by a hot naked hunk) but her reporter brain analyses the situation and thinks it can turn this into a story…..
I liked how Alexander changes even he finds his mate (albeit a little too quick) he’s suddenly aware of all the hassle and heartbreak he’s put his brothers through, and promises to try harder to mend a few fences.
And the threat in book 2, well that’s still there, and going up in danger level.
Can the brothers pull together? Or will Alexander lose his family and the potential happy ending just out of reach?
I like this one better than the other two. We have the intrigue, we have the romance and we have the drama. All the things you need In a series.
