Polar Heat Boxed Set by Terry Bolryder
These polar bears are ready to strip down and heat things up! From bestselling author Terry Bolryder comes this set of four hot bear shifters who are ready to find their curvy mates! Set in a unique location, these ripped, protective bears are here to steal your heart.
When Leah wins a once in a lifetime vacation, she isn’t expecting to meet Sky Weston, a hot, easy-going bear shifter who knows how to make her feel like a woman. But Sky isn’t easy going when it comes to protecting his mate, and when Jana’s crazy boss comes to cause trouble, everyone will see just how an alpha shifter defends what is his.
Some Bear to Love
Hot bear shifter Sebastien wasn’t looking for a mate, but when he meets curvy, sassy Kim and sparks fly immediately, Sebastien realizes a mate might just be right for him after all. Too bad there’s another bear intent on claiming Kim for himself, and Sebastien is in for a fight if he wants to claim the feisty woman for his own.
One in a Bear-llion
Hot millionaire Scott was never counting on settling down. Running the family business and making sure his siblings were happy was enough for him. But when he runs into beautiful Mara, he starts dreaming of forever, and when he finds out she has a serious stalker, he’s ready to go to battle for the woman he wants to claim as mate.
Sam Weston lost his mate Joanne years ago, and never expected to see her again. But when she turns up at his resort, with no memory of their life together, he gets a second chance to win her over. If only he can protect her from the past that is trying to catch up.

WARNING! EXTREME Polar Heat!!!
These were the first polar bear shifter books I had ever read, so between that and Terry’s phenomenal talent, well let’s just say that she has set the bar BEARY high for anyone else’s polar bear shifters that I may discover! I don’t know how to explain just how FURLICIOUS & BEARTASTIC these books are, but to have them all in one handy dandy box set?!? SHIFTASTIC!!!! Be prepared to be PAWMAZED! Be prepared to be HOWLED over! Be prepared for….oh FUR the love of it all….just read the books! They are BEARY FURRIFIC & OH-SO-BEARY PAWFECT!! Read on to see what I had to say about each book:
Bear-ever Yours – Rock her world? He was going to explode it! 5 stars
GGGRRRREAT story!!! Sorry! I just couldn’t help myself! The growl just had to come out! Polar Bears! YUP! POLAR BEARS!!! WHOOT! This was such an amazing story! I liked that even though it is a shorter story (roughly about 80 pgs or so) it did NOT lack for anything. That being said, I always like my books to be longer! I HATE saying good-bye to my new book friends…even if it is a “just for now” good bye. I was very impressed with the storyline, how things progressed and of course the ending! I love Terry’s take on polar bears, the unique traits they have, I love the humor, the sexiness, the…well EVERYTHING! I don’t want to give spoilers away, so I will leave it all at that! So many beautiful & magical moments that it was hard for ME to remember the short timeframe that it all takes place in, let alone poor Leah who is swept right up into the perfectly written romantic story! My only comment (it isn’t really a complaint) is that there were a couple of questions left unanswered, but I am hoping that Terry has plans to write more books and turn this one into a series. So until I hear differently, I will hope that this is the case and that my questions will be answered soon enough! (Maybe Terry could make this the first book of a Sky & Leah series or a family series that has a second book for each brother that updates us on them and answers my questions!) I can hope & dream right? Can you tell that I loved this book? I am trying to convince Terry to write MORE for me to also read!!! I recently discovered Terry & her Polar Bears and while I am so ecstatic that I did find her, I am glad I did so now. That means I have a LOT of books to read & catch up on while waiting for the new ones to come! :) So pardon me for cutting this short! I have some polar bears to love!
Some Bear to Love – He wanted her to remember him with every step she took. 5 stars
Oh how I loved this story! I was impressed that even though it is a shorter story (roughly about 95 pgs or so) it did NOT lack for anything. Kim is such an amazing girl, so full of self-confidence and always ready for the next adventure. Then there is Sebastien! He is the middle brother of the Weston bears and he is all full of seriousness with a scowl always close by. Of course, he is not in the market for a mate, but fate (& his father) have other plans for him! Right away you can just tell how funny, sexy & full of romance this book is going to be and you will not be disappointed! I burst out laughing a few times with all of the hilarious moments and naughty one liners like “So, captain, you gonna let me hoist your mainsail later”. There isn’t a lot of “shifting” but the bear is always there, as part of the story. This is the second time that I have had the pleasure of reading Terry's books. I absolutely loved Bear-ever Yours, and this is the perfect story to follow it! I know that the books in this series are each labeled as a standalone because of the way that they end…but I think that by reading them in order you get the most out of ALL of the stories! I love Terry’s take on polar bears, the unique traits they have, I love the humor, the sexiness, the…well EVERYTHING! I love the different...WHOA!! Almost gave a spoiler there! As I already mentioned this is the second book of Terry's that I have read, but I can guarantee that it will NOT be the last!! I love how creative and unique Terry's polar bears are! In fact, when I first heard of Terry, all I had seen was the cover of Bear-ever Yours with a polar bear on it, then the word 'shifter' and I knew that I just had to have this book in my library!! I guess you could say 'you had me at polar bear'! In fact I actually have bought all of her books so I am rather impatiently chomping at the bit to get to reading them! All in all, Terry & her polar bears are more than well worth the read and I can’t wait for the next one! Awesome story, great adventure, humor, hotness, romance and everything else you could ask for in a book!
One in a Bear-llion – But what am I supposed to do when my father chews me out for breaking your heart? 5 stars
“Who says I won’t break your heart?” WOW!! Who knew bears could be so naughty & good at the same time!?! POLAR BEARS!!! Whoot! Okay, I know it's corny, but...you had me at 'polar bear'! Terry sure knows how to attract, grab & keep your attention!! This is such a great romance filled story! I really enjoyed the three stories in this series and I would have liked a little more of the 'bear' parts, but I enjoyed the 'inside' bears immensely! This book is about Scott, the oldest of those Weston boys and Mara, who is the gal that Sam has decided would be a perfect mate for Scott. Too bad that they both have other ideas! Scott is the workaholic manager - “You can’t always use work to get away from your feelings.” - who hardly even steps outside of the Weston’s family Hotel Resort that he runs even though they are in the Caymans! Mara has her own issues that she is trying to deal with back home but when there isn’t anyone to help her with them, she eagerly accepts the free trip to the Caribbean with hopes that everything will settle without her being around. Neither of them are looking for anything permanent, nor are they wanting a mate. Too bad that they have no idea what fate has in store for them until it intervenes. “Her bear wasn’t disturbed by it, but her inner human was confused.” (I just love that line!) Let’s just say that the outcome is equal parts heartbreak, hilarity and romance all at the same time! Of course, you would have to read the story to understand my comments, because I am trying to say things without giving away any spoilers!! I cannot wait to read all of Terry's other books, especially if this is a great representation of her work! She is one very talented & gifted author that is able to catch your attention right from the beginning, heck even from those amazing covers!!! My attention was fully focused on the story from start to finish, I couldn't put it down until I knew what was going to happen! I thought that how Terry dealt with some of the situations by NOT dealing with them was pure genius! The focus is fully on the two bear shifters and that is it! Yes other stuff does happen, life moves forward, time goes on, yadda yadda yadda, *snicker* but the story is all about two people hopefully becoming one. Don’t be misled by the fact that this is a shorter story of about 83 pgs or so because you would be missing out on some great stories that pack a helluva wallop! There is so much story and nothing is added in “to fill pages” like it doesn’t have a true purpose. Terry is one very talented author! I have now read the three books in this series and even though the initial situations are quite similar, and the outcome might be the same, the path that is taken to get from 'me' to 'us' is so very different! To me, that is one of the many points that are a perfect example of just how gifted Terry truly is! In fact as soon as I saw the cover of Bear-ever Yours with a polar bear on it, and then found the word 'shifter' in the description, well I just knew that I had to read it! I have never read a polar bear shifter book before so I was eager to read these ones and boy oh boy am I ever glad I did!! I love the creativeness, the unique features they all have. Most importantly, I love that each story is its own story! I thoroughly enjoyed it and totally loved the epilogue! I love to catch up 'old' friends, it helps bring a series all together full circle...almost! With all of the little hints that Terry gave us in the first two books, and then the outright teasing in this book...well all I can say is that Terry had better be planning at least one more - longer- book to get ALL of Sam's story! Past, present and future! So to sum things up – Terry has written an amazing set of polar bear shifter books that I can only hope she will continue to add to this series because they are funny, hot, sexy, romantic, adventure & pretty much anything you could ever want in a great story! You gotta read this!
Remem-bear Me – Terry has broken the polar bear mold with this one!! 5 PAWS errr STARS
It was like coming back to your heart. She was still his. She had to be. This is such an amazing story!! It is a polar bear fairy tail! snicker I was so excited to read this one! When I was reading the first three books in this series - one for each of Sam's sons - I always felt like something was 'missing' or left-out when it came to Sam & his mate's story, but even I could never have predicted this story and how it plays out! I was truly hoping that there was some kind of reason - a great one at that - as to why Jo had taken off, and stayed away, and even though I had some theories, I didn't think on it too hard as I didn't realize that Terry was going to do their story. BUT SHE DID!!! And what a story it is! Let me just say this - I did not predict anything close to what happened nor how it ended! *sigh* isn't that the best kind of stories though? I am trying hard to not give anything aware & ruin their story, but I am sure I can say this much - I loved when they went out on his yacht ...hmmm, I guess that would say too much! I adored the updates on the boys & their mates! Oh! I can say that I laughed out loud with how Jo's memory starts to 'come back' for lack of a better word. Read it! You will see and hopefully love it as much as I do! As with any other of Terry's books I have read so far, this one will stay in my 'books to read over & over'. When I reviewed One in a Bear-llion I said this: "With all of the little hints that Terry gave us in the first two books, and then the outright teasing in this book...well all I can say is that Terry had better be planning at least one more - longer- book to get ALL of Sam's story! Past, present and future!" There is not one word I would change and I am ecstatic that Sam's story did in fact get told!! Now I hope that Terry has plans to do at the very least one more story in this series, possibly set in the future - if near future, how the mates are all doing, how many kids they have, etc. or if further in the future, maybe on Sam's grandcubs with possibly Sam helping them to find their own mates! Wouldn't that be pawsome?? You are correct! I love this series way too much to say good-bye to them! Terry is one very talented & gifted author that is able to catch your attention right from the beginning, heck even from those amazing covers!!! My attention was fully focused on the story from start to finish, I couldn't put it down until I knew what was going to happen! I loved that this story was "different" than the first 3 books. In those ones, Sam sets up his 3 sons with their mates while in this one, the boys try to do the same for him. The problem? He already has a mate! So this one is focused on finding out why they are not together and haven't been for 20 years and how to confront their past to try to have a future together. To me, that is one of the many points that are a perfect example of just how gifted Terry truly is!
