    Fun True Mate Tale Ginny has met her true mate Adrian and is tremendously happy. Well almost. It's just this one little thing: she can't control her shifting and even shifted when Adrian bit her to make her a werebear! Which wouldn't be a a big problem except that they're in a band and getting enough notice that their big break is coming soon. The pressure of imminent fame isn't helping Ginny control her shifts. What's a girl to do? Great addition to the series!

    Adrian: Mating Fever V. VaughnReviewed by SFF DragonRock group Second Sound are living the dream, but getting there was hard for true mates Ginny and Adrian. I absolutely loved it.'Adrian' is the second book in the new Rocked by the Bear series by V. Vaughn, one of my favourite authors, part of the ongoing saga of the Le Roux and De Rozier clans, it's also part of the new multi-author Mating Fever Collection of stand alone paranormal romances that's taken over from the terrific Mating Season Collection. Well written in the first person and entirely from Ginny's point of view, I was hooked from beginning to end and absolutely loved it.True mates Adrian Lindquist and Ginny Harrison have been mated a short time, and are travelling a rocky road as Ginny tries to control her shift. The problem is that Ginny hasn't come to terms with her change and hates being a werebear. A warrior bear even more so. It's already messed up her life forcing her to leave classes in a hurry before anyone sees her shift, but she loves Adrian and hasn't told him how she feels. Adrian is desperately trying to help, but there's not a lot he can offer besides his love, support and daily sparring matches.Without giving spoilers it's hard to tell you about this wonderful story. Ginny and Adrian are just two of the terrific characters to found within the pages of this book and you can feel Ginny's rising sense of panic every time her bear takes over and Adrian's desperation to help her succeed and get control. They love each other more than anything, it shines through the whole story and he's willing to give up his dreams of their success as musicians so Ginny doesn't have to cope with the stress it will put her under. They're both torn and this book is filled with tension, high emotion and love, as well as fair bit of steam, humour and a dwindling supply of yoga pants, but eventually Ginny comes to terms with the fact her plans for her life are no longer possible and takes the route destiny planned for her instead.I love V. Vaughn's books and despite being written in the first person, not my favourite style, I barely even noticed because the story is so good. I was given a copy of 'Adrian' by the author in exchange for an honest review and I absolutely loved it. Although this book is connected to Called by the Bear and Tempted by the Bear which are serials, this is a complete stand alone story with a happily ever after and no cliff-hangers. Mating Season is over and the air is filled with the Mating Fever.

    I received for a honest review. I love V. Vaughn’s books. This is the second book in the series. Truthfully I think if you have not read book one you will be okay because I think book 2 works fine as a standalone. Ginny is a new werebear. Her and Adrian had just mated. Ginny is not liking being a werebear at all. She feels out of control and cannot control her bear. She is lucky though, her mate if very carrying and is there for her no matter what.Ginny, Ginny’s sister Nessa, Adrian, and Adrian’s other 3 brothers have a band. The Lindquist brothers have a passion for music and have big dreams. Nessa is finding her calling as well in the music world. With all the changes Ginny is feeling she is not certain were she stand when it comes to the band. There is so much to consider. Most importantly she must protect the werebear race. I have to say I loved the little old ladies Colleen and Maggie. They had a crush on the Lindquist brothers. After speaking to them Adrian knows why the boys loves the little ladies so much. This two ladies will play a very important role as the book progresses. Sorry need to read the book to find out more. When Ginny goes to see her sister Tori they happen to go visit Annie and Tristan. Ginny will learn so much out about herself. She has so many decisions to make. She must be careful how she chooses, the wrong chose could drive her farther from her mate. Dreams are coming true. The band is getting a break and Ginny will have to decide where she stands. I have to say I am so looking forward to book 3.

    i had hoped we would see a bit more of adrian in this story but it resolves more around Ginny his new mate and her struggle to accept her bear and she has to deal with the consequences of this change. it's hard for her to control her bear and if it wasn't for adrian and his brothers exposing them would be a real possibility, thanks to the four brothers and their swift reactions she's safe every time a sudden change is upon her.only after she's visited with her sister and ana does she start to understand why she's adjusting in a difficult way. as the days go on and she's starting to understand her bear and the new skillset she brings she also starts to understand that her current studies may not be what she needs to pursue. even now the band is getting forward she's even doubting staying with them is the right way.will she be able to come to terms with everything and make it work? to get to know all these details you better pick up a copy and read this part in the "rocked by the bear" series.it shed a bit of light on the fact that not every change is easy and that, well, your bear is always right ...can't wait to see what the future holds for the next brother!free copy given in exchange for an honest review

    Ginny was the triplet most open to discovering she was a were-bear. Since mating with Adrian, it has not been going how she hoped. She keeps changing into a bear at the worst times and is terrified her secret will be revealed. She loves Adrian though and wants to support the music group they are part of with his brothers and her sister. This is the second book in the series featuring the polar bear shifters and their mates. They are each short reads and it would be best to read them in order. Many of the characters from the author's other series on werebears also appear in this series which I enjoy. I have spent so much time with them. Ginny has always wanted to be a doctor and the rock group was for fun. For Adrian and his brothers, this group is their future. She is really frightened that she isn't adjusting as quickly as her sisters. Adrian is a quiet guy like his brother Andre and very devoted to Ginny. They both want to be supportive of each other. It is a struggle for them both. Love comes easy and they have great chemistry and lots of desire for one another.I received a copy in return for a honest review.

    If you are a fan of any of V. Vaughn's books, you will love this new series! Violet Vaughn does not disappoint with any of her books and this is book 2 in the series Mating Fever ( Rocked by the Bear). This second issue is about Adrian Lindquist, a powerful and sexy polar bear shifter, lead guitar player in the Second Sound Band and Ginny Harrison a sassy, pre-med student, a new werebear, sister of Tori and Nessa, keyboard player in the Second Sound Band and mate to Adrian. Ginny is trying to find her way as a new shifter and she feels like she can't control her bear. Need to get this book to see what happens next. The plot is full of awesome and charming characters, genuine friendship, lots of emotions, heart warming romance, family love and an epic final that leaves you wanting more. Loved Colleen and Maggie, they are very sweet and lovable also will be very important during this book. Sorry need to read the book to find out. Every book is better than the last, can't wait for book 3.

    Review for ADRIAN by V. VAUGHNI received this book for an honest review.Ginny and Adrian have been mated about a month and she CANNOT control her shift. She is frustrated, angry and just mad as hell that she has become a bear, but she doesn’t have the heart to tell her mate. She is desperate to find something that will work for her and agrees to go back to Orono and let Annie help her. When she learns she is a warrior, she knows she will have to make huge changes with her life plans, including school, becoming a doctor and her music. It is also going to have a huge impact on Adrian and the band because they have just landed a record deal. Will her choices destroy the mate bond she has with Adrian or will they be able to work through this so they can stay together ?

    I couldn't wait to read how Ginny & Adrian where doing, especially with how easily Ginny accepted the whole 'father was a shifter & you can turn into a bear once your mate bites you' talk. 'Adrian: Mating Fever' is book 2 in V. Vaughn's new series "Rocked by the Bear". Adrian was lucky to find his mate in Ginny, she's just his type & they are mated quickly, but her shift is easily started & with barely any control.... When her uncontrollable shifting starts to make going to school & playing at gigs difficult, what can she do?? I LOVED this, now I can't wait to read the next books in the "Rocked by the Bear" series.

    Great bear shifter romance, with some hard truths discovered, and learning what really matters most to oneself. Ginny thought being a werebear would be wonderful, but so far it has been a complete disaster. She has no control over her bear, and it is making her life change for the worse not the better, the only good thing is that Adrian, her mate, is loving, caring, and there for no matter what. With a record deal in the making, can Ginny learn to control her inner bear, or will their dreams of hitting the big time crash and burn? I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Received the book for an honest review. Adrian book two in the Rocked by The Bear series has Ginny Harrison, the last one of the triplet sisters to meet her true mate and become a werebear. Ginny might just have regretted her decision to be changed as she's having a hard time controlling her shifting. This is playing havoc with her studies and playing in the band. She and Adrian are members of. Adrian is the second of the Lindquist brothers to meet his true mate and he'll do anything to make sure she's happy and comfortable with her new life. Ms. Vaughn always entertains and never disappoints. Great paranormal love story that will keep you interested from beginning to end.

    WOW. Ginny had so much going on in her head she was blocking her self. Will she be able to get out of her own head? Will she have to leave the band? Will the band get the music deal? What other choices will they have to make? This is a story of woman empowerment and knowing your own mind and abilities. By being comfortable in your own skin.
