About Bearliest Catch

 Drew spends his days fishing in the Pacific, far from Grizzly Cove, seeking the peace of the ocean. Jetty lives in the ocean, part of a hunting party of mer folk, in near-constant danger now from the evil creature that roams the deep. When they meet, sparks fly and the ocean comes alive with danger. Can they get her people to safety? 

☕☕☕ 1/2 cups a slow and steady rush of caffeine.  Romance develops fairly quickly but the intricate world building is excellently crafted.

Bearliest Catch is the sixth book in Bianca D'Arc's Grizzly Cove series. A standalone shifter/paranormal romance, it centers around Drew, a bear shifter and Jetty a mermaid. There is an overarching plot in these books which doesn't necessarily detract from the main story line. However, its a great plot device that is better appreciated when all books are read in order.

In Bearliest Catch, we find Drew, fishing alone in his boat, cloaked by his own magic from the evil that threatens all creatures of the Light. His senses detect that he is being watched but it doesn't really feel like a threat. It comes to him that it could be one of the mer people, specifically Jetty. Jetty has been watching Drew for the longest time. Attracted by his almost sad and lonely demeanor, she longs to comfort him but shies away from contact with the land because of her own problems from the past. When they do make contact its for the safety of the mer people but its also something stronger that brings them together. The bonds of being mates. Now Jetty and Drew must work together to bring her people to the safety of Grizzly Cove before a malevolent and ancient evil decides to feast on the mer people's magic.

Shifter romances centers around the concept of mates, or that one true being meant for you. This book is no exception. However, what makes this one really great is the simple yet intricate world building of Grizzly Cove. Each secondary characters, each part of the Grizzly Cove community seems alive and in its own way a separate character in itself. Despite the length which is relatively short, readers get a sense of a complex world where bear shifters and other paranormal and magical beings exists and it comes alive. The romance between Jetty and Drew is more concentrated on the emotional development between them. Despite the physical attraction being strong surprisingly its their emotional vulnerability and their opening up to each other that is the center of their romance. Sometimes it did feel overpowered by the paranormal suspense plot however it didn't detract on the sweetness and simmering chemistry between Jetty and Drew. Bearliest Catch is a great addition to the Grizzly Cove series and the next book can't get here soon enough.
