For vet and animal whisperer Charli Avers, talking to bears is all in a day’s work. But when she finds a man—a very sexy, very alpha man—where a bear ought to be, the wild comes close to home. Charli is drawn to this mysterious stranger. She wants to help him piece together the past he can’t remember—even if that means shedding her human misgivings and embracing her more carnal desires.
After shifting from bear to man, Barry believes he’s finally found his mate. Now he just needs to find himself. He doesn’t know much about the animal within him, but his human heart aches for Charli. She ignites his instincts to protect her from all danger—including their electric attraction.
The stakes climb as Charli investigates the mystery behind Barry’s memory loss and how it may relate to strange sightings and thefts in this little corner of Oregon. Without answers, she may lose Barry—and herself—to the wild side forever.

Technically I found BEARLY IN CONTROL to be well written and well edited. I didn't enjoy the book however because the characters just weren't realistic mainly the secondary characters. Charli is part of a shifter detective unit however the detectives seem be busier either moping or looking for their mates then actually solving crimes. It almost reminded me of an Abbott and Costello skit which really killed the book for me.
I do want to give the author kudos however for how well she points out that 'curvy girls' can be extremely sexy. And the sex itself is hot and well done. I just demand more from the plot and the other characters.
This is a paranormal romance that I would recommend my readers give a pass too though this is my own opinion. If you do check out this book and feel differently, please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.
