Roaring Up the Wrong Tree (Grayslake #3) by Celia Kyle

What should Trista you do when faced with a hunky werebear who can’t decide if he wants to kill her or screw her?

Half-hyena, Trista has spent years rotating between Grayslake, Redby, and Boyne Falls. When the Grayslake Itan—the local clan’s werebear leader—orders a purge of all hyenas, she finds herself fighting to hold onto the hand-to-mouth life she’s created. Her carefully built existence is threatened further when a gorgeous werebear strides into her life and demands not just her heart, but her very soul. She’ll think about it, but not until her shift ends at seven.

Keen seems like a happy-go-lucky, sex-and-sin werebear, but that’s nowhere near the truth. In reality, his inner-animal wants to go on a bloody rampage and kill half of Grayslake—just because it can. After that, it wants to claim the seductive, curvaceous half-hyena female Keen can’t get out of his head. The animal doesn’t care that most bears wouldn’t mind a little hyena tartare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Nope, it peers at her through Keen’s human eyes and has one thought: mate.

When push comes to shove, Keen has to decide if he would rather have the family he was born with, or Trista-the woman who makes him realize that true happiness comes in a lush, hyena-shaped package.

My review:
This book can be read standalone but I recommend you read the first two No Ifs, Ands, or Bears About It and All Roar and No Bite first so you understand the undercurrent between the brothers, their wives and Keen.
Is it worse to have been raised in a single parent home in poverty surrounded by hate but rich in love or raised with wealth and both parents but be all but invisible?  This is the background these characters come from.  What matters is not where you came from but how you go forward.  The past has made these two characters Trista and Keen strong and perfect for each other. 
I really enjoy this series and have to say that this is my favorite of the three.  I was so involved in the story that I wanted to reach out and b**ch slap Van on more than one occasion. Keen and Trista will steal your heart.
