    Aleck: Mating Fever V. VaughnReviewed by SFF DragonA shallow woman gains depth and a bear gets his mate in this terrific paranormal romance. I absolutely loved it.'Aleck' is the third 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 Noel's point of view, I was hooked from beginning to end and absolutely loved it.Big soft-hearted bear shifter Aleck Lindquist is a talented song-writer and keyboard player, He's also the shy member of Second Sound and really doesn't want to be in the spotlight, he's happy lurking in the wings and doing his thing behind the scenes, but he's also the band's leader and when talent scout Noel Keating wants to promote them, he knows he's met his true mate and the only way to get closer to her is to go with the flow towards the big time.Noel Keating has seen a terrific new band on YouTube and wants to turn them into rock stars. She shows the video to her boss, boyfriend Link Murphy and he agrees, but he's away on tour with a new female group and leaves it to her. She's seriously attracted to the band's leader but won't act because she's not free, but her situation changes completely the next day. Noel is sure that Link's cheating on her with the lead singer of the new girl group and seeing them splashed across the front page together, combined with an excuse laden phone call leads Noel to the only course of action open to her where she gets to keep her job. She splits up with him, but she wants to promote Second Sound so they make a deal.Without giving spoilers it's hard to tell you about this great story. It has a lot of wonderful characters and lots of steamy bits as well a happily ever after, but although I loved Aleck and I did feel for Noel in the beginning, especially because of the situation she found herself in with Link, I'm not sure that I actually liked the somewhat shallow person she showed herself to be. The music business seems to revolve around image, and Noel was all about success, money, image and clothes in the beginning, but by the end of the book she was pulled up short by a red dress, and sudden dose of cold, hard reality when she hears Aleck's story. She stopped, took a good look at herself and didn't like what she saw. What she'd become and with Aleck's help, she was going to change.....I love V. Vaughn's books and despite being written in the first person, not my favourite style, the story is good and once I got into it, I barely even noticed. I was given a copy 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 Mating Fever has struck.

    I received this for a honest review. V. Vaughn once again has brought us another amazing book. If you have read any of the series then you know that Aleck Lindquist is in the band called Second Sound. He is also the band manger as well. Second Sound is on their way to be signed. It is a very exciting time. Aleck is this handsome polar bear shifter and he is also the shy one of the group. Noel Keating loves her job as a talent scout. I actually found her sort of interesting. Here she not knowing some things about her past and when enlighten she show so much strength. She has mixed business with pleasure by getting involved with her boss Link Murphy. Now Link is cheating on her and she is going to have to break it off and hopes this does not cost her job in the process. Personally, I actually did not like Link. He was a hypocrite. You have to live what you preach and Link did not do that. I don’t think Link truly appreciated Noel at all, not until he saw someone else showing interest in her. I still would of loved to seen Link get taken down a few notches because it seemed even after karma slapped him around a few times he still did not learn his lesson. This was a great story of true love and how no matter how many obstacles comes your way, if you are determined to fight for what you want true love will win in the end.

    noel loves what she does and she likes going after new bands her label could sign. and this was just what she was doing when she's scouting out Second Sound. the guys on stage looked like nordic gods, clear they were related. but the one she spots on the side as her stomach making somersaults. first contact is made and things with the band look promising. the one brother not on stage turns out to be aleck, their main songwriter/manager.noel can't help but feel those butterflies, something she never had with her current boyfriend/slash boss. looking at their relationship and where things stands at the moment she can only conclude they're better of being boss/employee again.noel manages to convince him to let her handle everything for the group. as her job starts taking care of the band, so does aleck start getting closer to her and it doesn't take long before things get heated. but it also doesn't take long for misunderstandings and more conflict to transpire!how will these two very different people make things work, if they manage that at all?lovely addition to the lindquist brothers' stories. one more to go! curious how difficult things will be for copy given in exchange for an honest review

    Aleck is the bear shifter brother who prefers to not be on the stage and get attention. Noel is a talent scout that wants to manage the band. When they meet, the chemistry is intense. Noel is still in a relationship with her boss which makes it complicated. Noel has wanted a glamorous life for years and being with her boss has brought her closer than ever to what she wants. Her feelings for Aleck are strong but her desires for the high life may jeopardize their chances.I have enjoyed this series. Each of the brothers has been finding their mates and getting the life they could only dream of years ago when their clan was so poor. They are pretty quick reads and each is a standalone but I do recommend you check out the other books in the series as well as the Called by the Bear and Tempted by the Bear series that started it all. They are great series for those who love paranormal romances.I received a copy in return for a honest review.

They have been approached by an talent scout who can take them to the top. Aleck may not like being on stage but he does like Noel. The feeling is mutual. While the band goes through preparations the two make some discoveries of their own. The steam is there. The feelings, however their lives are very different. Are they too different? The two have so much love, I enjoyed watching them show the other sides of themselves. Still there were big changes coming if they were to follow through with the mate bond.

    I'm really enjoying this series! One thing in particular I enjoy is the little bit of overlap that happens with each book. There is an element that is retold but through someone else's perspective I think it gives better insight into the characters. I also liked that the characters had to work through a few of their own issues in order to be with each other - they had to work to get the HEA. As a result I think they made each other better. Ms. Vaughn has told another great story and I can't wait for the next one! I received a copy of this manuscript from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    'Aleck' takes you back to that moment in 'Andre' when the talent scout first approached the band, you get to read first hand what is occuring in 'Aleck'. 'Aleck: Mating Fever' is book 3 in V. Vaughn's new series "Rocked by the Bear", I highly advise you to read this series in order. Noel is on a road trip to get her latest find signed up & famous, when she arrives at the bar where Aleck's & his brothers band are playing. Aleck notices Noel right away & understands just who she is, but she has no idea about shifters.... WOW that was an intense read, I loved it all & can't wait to read the next book in this series.

Noel is a talent scout and she knows talent when she hears it. She makes it her quest to make Second Sound the next best thing.
