There’s nothing quite like being dumped by another good-for-nothing boyfriend to focus a girl’s mind. Fun has been missing from Louisa’s life for far too long, and a bit of wax play at the spa-with-a-difference is just what she needs to take her mind off her birthday. 

What can possibly go wrong? It’s not as though the man she’s been secretly lusting after for years would turn up and see her in all of her wobbly bits glory, or give her one mind blowing orgasm after the other, is it? 

That would mean she is getting the bear treatment. You know the one—ends up being mated to one droolworthy, dominant, bear shifter—and ticks off the council no end. One thing’s for certain. After this birthday nothing will be the same again. 

Review of book:

Well let me tell you, The Bear Treatment, the fourth installment in Doris O’Connor’sProjects Series, was beyond hot, and had my heart pounding and temperature rising with each turn of the page.  Putting her own spin on the friend to lover theme, the author grabs you right up front and smacks you between the eyes with the sexual tension between Louisa and Luke, and it continues to smolder throughout the tale.  I loved the idea of a spa with “special services”, and thought it lent the perfect arena for Louisa’s fantasy fulfillment.

Luke was what I like to call the quintessential alpha male.  He’s hot, sexy, and confident, but man what a dope when it comes to Louisa.  He’s had a crush on her forever, and yet rather than take steps towards letting her know how he felt, let her date other, obviously very wrong for her, men.  I did enjoy the creative ways he made up for lost time though, and Louisa’s off-beat sense of humor really made the pairing come alive for me.

The Bear Treatment by Doris O’Connoris a quick, steamy read that will have you fanning yourself long after the last word is read. Louisa and Luke’s whirlwind “special” spa day courtship is a fantastic way to spend an afternoon, and I enjoyed it so much, that I’ll be working through the Project series back list.
