Are they strong enough to be her men?
Cunning. Everyone uses the word to describe Katy. In Quarterz, the virtual reality world where men and women compete as hunter or prey, Katy has never been captured. At least, not until the bear clan arrived in the game. Powerful, smart, and straight out of her fantasies, Katy can't always outmaneuver the tests they create.
When the clan challenges her to take their team on in a real game of hunters and prey, she can’t resist the lure.
Is she strong enough to be their woman?
Grizz, Oso, and Kodie are Pantherian bear shifters, born into a culture where men have learned to share and protect their species’ most limited resource—females. They’ve accepted they will never have a Pantherian female as their shared mate. But can a human female handle a Pantherian, mating trio. If so, will she still want them when she knows what they are?
Are any of them strong enough to outsmart fate?
When the game puts hearts and lives on the line, taking a loss is the only way to win.

Katya “KatyDid” can travel between worlds. Grizzly “Grizz” has a special place in his heart for Katy. He feels that he wants something that he can’t have. They both have interesting family backgrounds and you will have to watch and see if that plays out in their story here. Grizz has two brothers, Kodie and Oso, who also like Katy. It’s interesting to watch how they end up getting what they want.
This may be a short story but there is a lot going on between the pages. Each scene moves seamlessly from one to the next. And none of the scenes seems to go on too long. It was interesting to watch how their relationships develop and how the world of virtual reality comes into play. This will have you wondering if what takes place here will happen sometime in the future.
In this story, I seemed to connect more with Katy then with the three men. Her character just seems to stand out more and that surprised me since the three men are supposed to be imposing shifters. It may not happen in my future but can you imagine if you could actually see this book unfold in virtual reality? That would add that little bit extra that I was looking for. Yes they had sex with multiple partners, it was graphic with some BDSM tied in, but I just wanted something to get me more interested in Grizz, Kodie, and Oso. In order to get a feel for the series, I probably will go back and read the first two books and then watch out for book four. I didn’t feel as if the other books tied into this one but I wanted a better understanding of what the Pantherian world is about.
Nara lives on a small farm in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains. When she’s not writing, she loves to run, hike, bike, and kayak. Every story she tells incorporates her love of animals, nature, and adventure.
