He might growl, but she’s not afraid to bite.

Hands full taking care of his clan, the last thing this Kodiak bear needs is a woman poking her cute little nose into his affairs. But when she refuses to back down—and shows the courage to stand up to him—he can’t resist the allure of a curvy city girl.

She’s mine. All mine.

And when a rival clan thinks to use her to force his paw, he’ll show them why you never piss off a Kodiak, or threaten what’s his.

Tammy is convinced men are all scum, even gorgeous ones like Reid Carver. She knows he’s hiding something. Something big. She just never expected a real freaking bear hid underneath all those muscles. But when the truth comes out and he tries to scare her off with a roar, she shows him not just bears have bite.

As always, the love and chemistry as well as Langlais’ humor made Kodiak’s Claim a very quick and steamy read! Loved it!

My Kodiak’s Claim review:

With her signature humor, Langlais had me invested in the story and the characters of Kodiak’s Claim from the beginning! Tammy showed her strengths, and the fact that she was happier alone than being with an asshole really appealed to me! When she was sent to Alaska to investigate some insurance claims for three lost trucks full of shipments, she never thought it would completely change not only her life, but her view of the world as well.

Reid had always taken his role as alpha of the clan seriously, and a tiny human woman was not going to change that. Only, Tammy might be small in size, but her personality was definitely big enough to take him on! And that’s partly what I found so humorous! She never backed down from a challenge, and when she thought she was in danger, she did what she could to defend herself! The sparks between her and Reid were strong, even as they were both trying to convince themselves it was nothing.

Kodiak’s Claim was about more than their attraction, though, as there was real danger to the clan, after the disappeared trucks, someone tried to kidnap Tammy from Reid’s home, and that didn’t sit well with either of them. As danger loomed, and the two protagonists continued being stubborn, I was both laughing, cringing and feeling all hot and bothered! Langlais’ stories always manage to make me feel great, both while reading them and afterwards.

Some of my favorite Kodiak’s Claim quotes:

Still… he’d never had his bear think a human smelled delicious before. No eating people. The first rule a shifter learned, right after don’t lick the electrical outlet.

Given his thoughts when he saw her peeled form her bulky jacket to reveal a very womanly shape, Reid could only agree. Despite her humanity and general unsuitableness, the ideas running through his head weren’t decent at all.

But next time he should make the effort because having her hugging him, even with their many layers, had a ridiculous effect on him. One he didn’t like at all, but his bear really enjoyed.

    • Oh lucky you, Melanie!! I’m sure she must be fun in person, because her books always make me laugh 🙂 I have read a whole lot of her books, too, but there are still many more just waiting for me to make time for them 😉

  1. I DNF this one on audio but I think my issue was with the narrator. My library has it in ebook format so I might go back to it one day to see if I enjoy it more by reading it.

  2. I haven’t read anything by Eve Langlais before but i’d be lying if i said you didn’t get me intriguied. I may or may not be heading to the library later to see what i can find of hers.

    Hi Lexxie,
    Great review! I love the quotes you’ve used too, they brought a little smile to my face. I like paranormal romances so I might give this book a go. I find the idea of shape-shifters interesting too and I’m curious what take the author has on the subject (how it happens, why that person can do it, and so on).
    Great post 😀
