2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: A Bear Walks Into a Bar by Eden Winters (169-07-04-2016)

This book was incredible! I haven't read any of Winters' shifter books before, and I am actually liking it more than her contemporary! While maintaining some common shifter lore aspects, this book took on a whole new twist to a stale genre. The four young shifters made a family, and they cared for each other in a rolling tumble of fun and love, protecting each other and showcasing true friendship. Dillon, the young bear, needs a safe place to hibernate, and they think they might have a place to lay low when BAM! this big, sexy alpha bear saunters into the bar where they work, and chaos reigns! The background plot of territorial tensions was great, and the addition of elk shifters made this a fresh experience in an overwhelmed shifter genre.

It takes one strong alpha with a tight grip to keep a mountain full of shifters under control. Sawyer Ballantine’s contending with an uppity wolf leader and a herd of shifter elk bound and determined to take over. He might be the lone bear on the mountain, but he’s not going to allow another four shifters to just move in, especially not when they whiff of power. They’ll either be his in all ways, or they’ll be gone. Dillon, Jerry, Kevin, and Brad have no one but each other since their groups kicked them out. The young bear, wolves, and fox make a merry ménage, pooling their meager skills and serving beer. They’ve stumbled into more than they understand, caught in the dispute between the Urso of Ballantine Mountain and the elk. But winter’s setting in, and they don’t know how to keep Dillon safe for hibernation. And then a bear walks into their bar.
