Blurb: A cat, a demon and a bear. Oh my.
Jericho Dark Walker is a Bear, born to shift into both an animal’s and man’s form. He’s second in command to the mixed group of shifters living in the Great Forest. For years it had been his dream to see his clan reintroduced to the land of their ancestors. But now that he’s back he finds himself restless, unable to find joy in even the simplest back scratch or hive of honey. The female shifters offer little challenge, more than eager to bed the Great Clan’s beta, and with everyone getting along, there’s little more for him to do than break up the rare fight.
When an opportunity arrives to represent the clan and work with the athmae to oust an evil plaguing the outer edge of the Great Forest, he gratefully volunteers. The alpha’s brother has mated with an athmae—a demon—so Jericho thinks he knows what to expect. But his new partner is anything but typical. The athmae assigned to work with him is a male demon as large as Jericho, and just as deadly. No sex demon, but a hunter with the instincts of a true predator. So why is Jericho so taken with the male, when he has only ever felt desire for a female?
And why, when they rescue an annoying, sexy cat shifter from certain death, do his instincts scream at him to claim both the feline female and the demon as his own? Bears don’t mate outside their species, yet everything inside Jericho pushes him to do just that. A cat, a demon and a bear. Oh my.
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of dubious consent, bondage, M/M intimacy, and M/M/F loving.

Review: I personally don’t like stories with female parts in it. With that being said I didn’t read the intimate scenes at all. Jericho teams up with a demon to extinguish an evil that is terrorizing people, they discover a female cat shifter is in danger and rescue her.
There’s plenty of adventure, drama and angst along this journey. I did like the sexual tension between Jericho and the demon but did not care for the female at all. It seemed the story was lacking in some areas and had too much sex going on at times.
I personally did not like this book overall but it was well written.
