    Ufffff me encantaron los personajes. Pensé que no me iba a gustar tanto por hablar de la ex pero no fue así. Los personajes a pesar de que el libro es súper corto estuvieron muy bien planeados y la última escena donde sale Sara me fascinó hahha No puedo decir más por la longitud del texto pero fue ágil y muy bien desarrollada en pocas páginas.

She wants love This review was originally posted on Addicted To Romance   Summary  Nikolina is the only one left in her bear clan that is unmated. She was born and raised in a small and strict bear clan, where rules and obedience are everything. Nikolina is coming into her heat phase, and since the one man she was supposed to end up mated to left and mated a wolf, she has hardly any choices. When she overhears the council talking about her mating with one of the mated couples, she is appalled. She wants love and a true relationship. But there is one bear she can mate with, a bear that left years ago because of a trauma when his mate died. Leif left the bear clan behind, and has been living in Antarctica as a lone bear, only in his shifter form, feasting on penguins. Nikolina goes in search for him, because he is her last hope. Nikolina finds Leif, and she helps Leif come back to his human form and when Nikolina's mating heat comes upon her, Leif is there strong and willing, and they begin to learn each other. When the council discovers her whereabouts, Nikolina and Leif will be forced to make a difficult choice...stay within the clan or be together and live alone? Plot and Story Line  This is another great installment into the Midnight Liaisons' series, it is a novella, but boy did I have a ball of fun with it. I only wish it had lasted long since I fell for Nikolina and Leif quite immediately. Nikolina and Leif are both from the same clan but have had different circumstances. I love bear shifters and I was so thrilled when I saw that this one included both of the characters as bears. Nikolina is a heroine I fell in love with because she was willing to defy the council (which no one ever did unless they wanted to be exiled), and find a mate to love instead of being a 'concubine' just to have a child. She wanted more for herself and her child. I loved how she stuck to her guns and stood up to the council and her father when it really mattered most. Leif was a hero you can admire and appreciate. He is gorgeous and built, with long hair and despite appearing to be tough was sweet as a teddy bear on the inside. I love the way he is with Nikolina and trusts what they have together. The writing is amazing, if you have read Pamela Clare, and love her writing, then you will adore Jessica Sims (since it's the same author). The story was very engaging and had an endearing and passionate romance. Loved every moment and I just couldn't get enough. The Cover  I actually really love the covers for the series, what I like about this one is the golden colors and I love the relaxed and cozy posture this pair have. Overall View  Bear Naked is a brilliant addition to this paranormal series. It's a tale of searching and finding love and fighting for it no matter the cost!!

Me sorprendio que no fuera el caso, para mi Nikolina era un personaje totalmente nuevo y aunque no se convirtio en uno de mis favoritos de la saga, no fue insoportable como esperaba. Leif fue muy tierno, aunque no consegui cogerle demasiado cariño ya que la historia no nos permite conocer demasiado a los personajes. 3 Estrellas!

    I waned something fun and I got that. I haave a thing for bear shifters and I love it even more when the heroine is a bear shifter. Her family is just awful. I didn't enjoy that part of the book but the love story is very sweet and the hero is wonderful. I could have used a few more chapters into the HEA and the hero and heroine building a life together but all in all a good read. I will be reading more of the series. I have some books on my TBR!

    Oh I love Jessica Sims books so much! Smart dialogue and steamy sex scenes combine to make a formula guaranteeing that I will read the entire book in one sitting.

What a bunch of misogynistic buttheads. Basically women are treated as mobile wombs and because Nikolina is going into heat and has no mate, they are trying to think of a way to impregnate her despite her lack of mate. Nikolina won me over though by taking matters into her own hands and running off to find her own werebear as opposed to taking whatever the clan elders decided was best for her. Leif was awesome. He and Nikolina had a pretty awkward first meeting, but he was incredibly sweet and genuinely cared about her. Watching them dance around the fact that she was in heat and they would both eventually lose control made their interactions fun and helped build the tension. If you have been a fan of Sim's past novels, this short one doesn't disappoint. As a bonus you get to see Sara and Ramsey again and those two characters are adorable. Would definitely recommend you read!

    I didn't expect to love Nikolina so much! It didn't take more than a page before I wanted her to have a perfect-for-her mate. She deserved it, after all she had to put up with. And her romance was rightfully sweet and romantic <3

    I knew the bear clan was strict ... but seriously.... I liked seeing this glimpse into a shifter clan other than the alliance and to get a better picture of why Ramsey went and did what he did. I loved the ending.

    I'll admit, I had some qualms about this when the H/h's first meeting involved Leif being so out of his mind that he would have raped Niko, the heroine, if she wasn't also a were-bear and therefore strong enough to throw him off. Leif being alone in the middle of nowhere in bear form for 16 years did quite a bit to make him lose touch with his humanity, and Sims did a good job of showing that. The apology that came later and no-nonsense determination of the heroine to choose her own path (instea I'll admit, I had some qualms about this when the H/h's first meeting involved Leif being so out of his mind that he would have raped Niko, the heroine, if she wasn't also a were-bear and therefore strong enough to throw him off.

The apology that came later and no-nonsense determination of the heroine to choose her own path (instead of letting her bear shifter clan leaders pick out a mate or attached male to "take one for the team" for her since she was about to go into season, leading her to hunt down Leif to scratch her itch) smoothed over my initial misgivings. For a story so short, I felt like Sims did a good job building the relationship between Niko and Leif, and setting the scene well enough to understand what might have driven Niko away from her clan to visit the wilds of Alaska in search of a mate. As Niko works to get what she wants and doesn't let the crappy way her fellow were-bears or even Leif treat her hold her back, I thought it made up for the jarringly off-putting beginning. Once Leif regains his humanity due to Niko's efforts, he is actually very easy to like. Despite the rocky start, this turned out to be short, sweet, and sinfully sexy. If you can get past the gratingly misogynistic way of life the bear clans live by and unfortunate way Niko and Leif meet in the first few chapters, you won't be disappointed with the way Niko breaks with tradition and takes charge of her own destiny. Plus, you know, hot smex.

We learn pretty early on in Bear Naked that the were-bear council consists of a bunch of old-fashioned, backward-thinking, judgmental, asshats. I immediately felt sorry for Nikolina, Ramsey's intended mate. Since his exile, Nikolina no longer has a male bear to mate and since she is nearing her first heat cycle, it is a matter of concern to not only her, but her clan mates as well. After listening in on a council meeting, Nikolina believes her only option is to hunt down a were-bear that left the clan behind sixteen years ago. Problem is, Leif is possibly feral and definitely not looking for company. I thoroughly enjoyed Lina and Leif together. Underneath all that dirt and grime, Leif was a hottie. Given that the circumstances surrounding their romance was different, it was a nice change of pace in the PNR genre. Also, Bear Naked had me wishing for a hot as sin bear here in Kentucky to keep me warm when I'm snowed in. Seriously. This past month has been a rough one and I'm a little envious of Lina and Leif's little snowbound rendezvous. Bear Naked was short, sweet, smexy, and just what I needed on this cold, Saturday afternoon. If you haven't read Jessica Sims' Midnight Liaisons series, I highly recommend it.

    Bear Naked by Jessica Sims is a novella in her Midnight Liaisons series. Each book can be read as a stand alone book but I do recommend reading the other books in the series because they are all great. Plus it is always fun to read about characters mentioned in previous books getting their stories told. In Bear Naked, bear shifter Nikolina Aasen is about to go in heat. Without a boyfriend to got thru the heat with, her father and the council elders have decided to mate her with a married man (and Bear Naked by Jessica Sims is a novella in her Midnight Liaisons series.

It might just be my new favorite book in the series. OMG the council elders were pieces of *%$# that definitely needed to be punched in their faces...a lot. I hated them...but it is kind of fun reading about jerks. So yeah I absolutely loved to read about the terrible council members. Plus Leif was hot, hot, hot. I would have preferred Nikolina wash his hair instead of cutting it (I love long hair)...but Nikolina probably would have needed 10 gallons of conditioner to make it manageable. The last chapter was awesome, loved how everything worked out. And I really, really, really hope Jessica Sims mentions Leif and Nikolina in future books cause they are definitely a couple I would love to read more about!

    Bear Naked is another short story from one of my favorite series. Nikolina Aasen is a were-bear. She was first mentioned in Desperately Seeking Shapeshifter as being the betrothed of Ramsey Bjorn, an exiled member of her clan.

Tired of being lonely, and not liking any of the choices the Elders were throwing around, Nikolina decides to take matters into her own hands, and seek out a clan member who left sixteen years earlier after the death of his fiancé. Leif has left his clan and most of his humanity behind. For the past sixteen years he's been living an isolated life on a small island in the Antarctic completely wild, rarely shifting to his human form, barely remembering who or what he is. It's going to take a lot for Nico to bring Leif around, and even more to convince him to forget his grief and choose to mate with her. This was a quick fun read. I love this series. If you haven't yet read the rest of the series, I highly recommend them.

I think this story deserves the highest rating, but I only rate novellas a max three stars because the brevity of them. I think her relationship with her mate could have been a little more detailed instead of the wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am it turned out to be. But the author's beautiful writing style came through and the world is just richly imagined and artfully written.

Loved the book cover, so pretty. Recommended if you like quick read and shifters.

    I was a little worried when this one started out. The bear clan talking about Nikolina going into heat and what to do about it, throwing out old men or married men to take one for the "team" because the bear clan needed the cub. If that wasn't bad enough, they were doing all of this without her presence. It was a good thing that Nikolina overheard and took things in her own hands. What happens next is a crazy journey that took her to Antarctica, searching for a long lost clan member, Leif. I lov I was a little worried when this one started out.

I hated how both Nikolina and Leif were treated and was so happy when they finally decided to do what they wanted, it was the right choice to make.

    I will start out by saying I'm usually not a fan of short stories. I always want them to be longer or the story seems rushed. This story wasn't the case! I loved this story; I forgot that it was a short story!! My curiosity with what happened to Nikolina started in Ramsey's story and I'm glad the author wrote this. We got an inner look at how the bear clans work and it gave a new look at why Ramsey was exiled. Loved watching Nikolina's growth and her strength emerge.

    An easy read that's fun and tugs at the heart strings. Mating heat is almost upon our heroine and her options are sucky. There's a long shot for her if she can locate a bear shifter that left the clan in grief many years ago. Finding him is easy, helping him find himself in time to be of any use is going to be the hard part. I like Jessica Sims and her Midnight Liaisons series, she mixes action, intrigue, and romance seamlessly in her stories.

    Short and steamy. I would have liked to see part of the book from the hero's POV. He spent 16 years as a bear. His transition would have been interesting. I also wonder where the mom was in all this. She neither suported nor chastized the heroine. She was mentioned so I knew she lived but she may as well be dead because she was a complete no-show and non-entity. Eve the heroine didn't seem to care about her.

    A bear shifter lady about to go into heat treks to Antarctica (like a total badass) and convinces a mostly feral run-away grizzly shifter to be her baby-daddy using coffee, chocolate bars, and sexy sexy baby-making pheromones. A very funny and rather adorable shifter romance ensues. I really enjoyed this novella.

    Lina lives in a small bear clan. As she comes into heat her choices are bleak - an elderly bear, one of the married bears or a 'donation' from another bear. In desperation she leaves to seek Leif who left the clan 16 years earlier. A short story, sweet and I liked Leif although I thought Lina was a bit wet.

    This book was ok. It weirded me out a little bit, but I still liked it. I didn't get some of the intricacies specific to this book, but I worked through them and ended up devouring the book in one quick setting.
