Review: BURDEN by Lila Felix

Burden (Bayou Bear Chronicles #1)

In the depths of the Louisiana swamps, clans of bear shifters roam freely. Hawke Turnclaw, the Alpha over all of his kind, is drowning in the legacy left to him by the Alpha before him, his own father. When he goes on a rescue mission to save a rogue Black bear from the clutches of a Grizzly clan, he finds more than just a Black bear, he finds his mate.
Echo has always been told she’s an anomaly, a fluke. She’s the only bear of her kind and that makes her a hindrance to her clan. She’s tried to run away, but they keep her tethered through guilt and a shock collar around her neck. 
And then someone shows up claiming he’s her mate.
Now belonging to a new clan, will she ever be able to understand that she’s so much more than just a burden?
★★★★★: Awesome!!! I really loved this book! (Highly recommended)
‘Tis my first bear-shifter book and I totally loved it to bits! Hawke Turnclaw, the Alpha male of the Black Bear clan, had finally met his match, his mate, his other half – Echo. Before he found her, he wasn’t sure how to properly lead and manage his clan. Before he found her, Echo was a slave, abused by the Grizzlies, even burned whenever she tried to escape. But now that Hawke got Echo, together they share the burden on their shoulders and became a powerful couple.
Finally, after a month long journey of reading edgy, steamy, hot and sizzling novels, here’s Lila Felix, offering a clean romance in the paranormal realm. Her characters are lovable and entertaining. Despite the non-existent sex scenes, the story still pulled me in, had me turn the pages excitedly, made me smile and weep and sigh. The same kind of feeling after I read the Twilight saga, only this one’s more unique and cuddly. I easily got lost in this paranormal entity and even my kids got interested. I’d gladly pick up another Lila Felix book, seeing that Burden was really great!

Lila Felix made the decision to write a book after being encouraged by friends. She is a stay at home mom to three wild children and three boisterous dogs and her high school sweetheart husband encourages her daily. Between writing books, she loves to read and watch sappy 80’s movies. Favorite things: ice cream, anything purple, roller derby and any kind of music she can get her hands on. If you’re looking for her, try looking in the swamp, she’s probably duct taping something under the shade of a Cypress tree.
