All Roar and No Bite (Grayslake #2) by Celia Kyle

Who needs claws when you’ve got a baseball bat? Lauren Evans sure as heck doesn’t.

Human Lauren has a protective streak a mile wide and one immediate goal in life—get her best friend out of an abusive household. If that involves a little bat-based redecorating, so be it. Unfortunately—or fortunately—a certain sexy-as-hell cop breaks up the fight before she has a chance to really get going. Grayslake police officer Van Abrams is too hot for his own good, and his handcuffs make all those wonderful places tingle. Too bad he, you know, arrested her and stuff. But then he becomes overbearing, demanding, and commanding. Suddenly Lauren finds herself in his arms, in his bed, and mated to his werebear butt. What’s up with that?

Werebear Enforcer Van Abrams doesn’t want anything to do with humans. He’s got reasons, and they’re damn good ones. He doesn’t need to explain himself to anyone, especially the curvaceous, luscious, gorgeous, human Lauren. Then, his bear decides Lauren is his mate and Van’s anti-human feelings abandon him. He still hasn’t figured out if that’s a good thing. Of course, when danger rolls in from Boyne Falls and joins with a powerful prick from Grayslake, Van realizes that, human or not, Lauren is his.
Van hopes he can kill their enemies and still make it home for dinner.

Warning: This book contains bad guys (more than one) being bad to good girls (two if you’re counting), and one group of humans who sorta end up… dead. Unfortunately, all that comes with a lot of blood, tears, and balls of fur. In this one, boy bears really do drool and human girls rule (and kick ass). We also learn that you can never have enough baseball bats, brake fluid, or fire pokers. Just sayin’. 

My review:
Karma is a bi**h.  After Van gave his brother Ty a hard time about falling for a half breed human/bear the fates said lets give Van a full human mate.  That he meets her during his day job swinging a bat at the Mayor’s head is just the start. Lauren is human and has no idea that were’s exist. She finds out the hard way but despite that finds herself falling for the big tough gruff cop and werebear enforcer.  But she isn’t easy and Van is going to have to work for it. 
I love that the author realizes that big werebear guys want a big beautiful woman who won’t break when they love them.  These guys are big as humans and huge as bears they don’t want a dainty flower they might crush.  They want a sturdy girl who can give as good as she gets.
