What happens when a half-blind weremole girl falls for a scarred werebear guy? A match made in furry, dirt-caked heaven. Mostly.

Weremole Kira Kolanowski has spent twenty-nine-ish years of her life half-blind and occasionally half-dead. (Her family isn’t exactly loving.) In an effort to remain fully alive, she moves to Grayslake, Georgia, with her poor excuse for a guide dog—a guide dog who decides to lift his leg and relieve himself on sexy-smelling werebear Isaac Abrams’ belongings. And when he roars…well, it makes her heart go pitter-patter and other parts go “ooh baby, ooh baby.” Just when she thinks she might have found happiness, a raving she-bitch werebear chick tries to kill her with the same poison that scarred Isaac to hell and back. The poison that Kira’s family happens to manufacture…

Isaac Abrams is leaving Grayslake. He’s tried, lord how he’s tried, to settle into life in Grayslake after the birth of his niece, but it’s not happening. He’s been home for a year, and it’s been 365 plus days of women looking past him and flat-out pretending he doesn’t exist. The battle with the hyenas didn’t just ruin his face, it ruined his chances at finding a mate in his hometown. So, he’s leaving. Or he was leaving until one day a lush, curvaceous weremole wanders into his half-packed house with that damned peeing dog of hers…it’s a good thing she’s so gorgeous.

Maybe he will stay—stay and keep Kira Kolanowski all to himself. Well, once he kills everyone who’s trying to kill her.

Okay I love Isaac and Kira.  They have officially become my new favorite couple in Celia Kyle’s Grayslake series.  Isaac has always supported his clan.  The pain he took is obvious when you look at him, but his family has no conception of just how literal that pain was.  He doesn’t toot his own horn but his clan is unable to look beyond the scarring he took for those he protected and Isaac wants a family of his own.  Just when he is to leave his home and clan he meets Kira.  Kira has suffered just as much if not more than Isaac, but still manages to see the good in others.  I loved that about her.  I loved that she makes Isaac laugh.  He is so serious but she pulls him outside of himself.  She knows he is “disfigured” and she doesn’t care.  She sees the character of the man just as the man sees the character in her.  Isaac looks past her disability and sees the woman who perseveres.  Now he just needs to convince her to give him a chance and keep her alive. 
Ms. Kyle did a wonderful job with Isaac and Kira.  They fit and I liked them separately and together.  Both had wounds,some visible but most hidden and Ms. Kyle did not shy away from addressing either.  Love at First Roar was extremely well written as well enjoyable.  It was full of laughter, love and acceptance.  I thoroughly enjoyed both the story and the characters.
