What's a bear to do when a human has a polar-izing effect?

When Vicky accidentally slides into the side of a polar bear, she doesn't expect to fall in love. Eaten yes, perhaps used as a chew toy, but become the object of a bear's affection and lust?

Crazy! Almost as crazy as the fact the polar bear turns out to be a man. A sexy man. A man who growls, and roars and does everything he can to chase her away.

Only to come back.

Gene only has one thing on his mind, vengeance, until Vicky crashes into his life.

Poor Gene. After the pain and betrayal he suffered in the war all he wants is revenge against the brothers who left him behind. But he's confused when instead of wanting to punish him for his evil acts, they offer him forgiveness.

Who does that?!

As if that weren't annoying enough, the cutest geek he ever met--with caramel kissed skin and wearing the sexiest dark rimmed glasses--won't leave him alone. Or more like, he can't seem to stop following her.

And it isn't just because someone is out to hurt her.

He wants her. But does he want her more than vengeance?

Welcome to Kodiak Point where the wildlife might wear clothes, but animal instinct rules the heart.
This one didn't hit me quite as nicely as the previous books in the series.  I think Eve tends to have such amazing books, that I have extremely high expectations of her.  This book was still a great story, just fell a bit short of some of her others.  Vicky was a great character at first.  She was nerdy and a klutz and I could totally relate to her.  Her first meeting with Gene had me laughing out loud.  Vicky's penchant for fainting was something new and a bit different.  It added a depth to her character that and gave her a bit of a humorous edge.

Gene was a little too hard and stubborn for me to really like though.  He's repeated references to him reminded me a bit of "he who shall not be named" from Harry Potter.  I know it is not an issue of fear of saying his name, but something else that is revealed in the story so I won't tell you what it is.  His refusal to admit and act on his feelings took up a large part of the story.  I really wanted to see the two of them together for a much longer time than I got to.

The assassins that we run into near the beginning of the story gave a good dose of excitement to the story that was able to carry through the story and kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to pop up next.  This was a great book - just not quite as great as the first two.
