Roscoe has finally freed his bear pack from the clutches of their cruel, former pack master, but not without difficulty and much violence. So, when he happens upon a young man, Sawyer, in his woods, Roscoe is suspicious, especially since Sawyer’s scent makes Roscoe want to claim him against every tree in the forest.
But, relocating his pack and starting over wasn’t easy and Roscoe’s rules have to be strict. He needs to be cautious while he figures out what he’s going to do about his inner beast wanting to claim the young--and human--Sawyer as his mate.
Sawyer may be young, but he’s been on his own for a while now and doesn’t react nicely to being told what to do--even if the person ordering him around is insanely sexy and can make his knees weak with a single word. Roscoe makes him feel whole, something he hasn’t felt before, but Roscoe also wants to hide him away.
And, it seems, for a good reason. There is distrust in Roscoe’s pack, and while Roscoe will not shy away from establishing his dominance, he refuses to rule with fear as their last pack master did.
It becomes clear to Roscoe that to have his boy and his pack, Sawyer will need a lesson in obeying his alpha’s commands if he is ever to be his mate. And if there is one thing Roscoe is very sure of, it is that Sawyer will be his.
Bearly Legal is a bear shifter Mpreg romance with May/December elements. If spanking or hot moments in the back seat of a car offend you, this is not the book for you.

This story checks all my boxes: shifter, mpreg, possessive behavior, D/S undertones, age gap, to name a few. If you enjoy these themes, I highly recommend this book. It's made my favorites list and I will absolutely read it again. The writing was good, easy to read and compelling. I read the story quickly because I didn't want to stop. It's a shorter story, only 118 pages. However, it didn't feel rushed or incomplete. I truly appreciate that I wasn't left wanting or with an unsatisfied feeling. I enjoyed both Sawyer and Roscoe as characters, they're likable and well-developed. I adore how Roscoe calls Sawyer his boy and the dynamics of their relationship. The instant mate connection works well in the story. I liked some of the details Burrelli came up with to explain her version of shifters. This story is great way to introduce this series and I already have book two of the series in my library.
Hi. My name is Jordan K Prince. I live and breathe MM fiction. I am particularly fond of mpreg; I can never get enough. I'm in the process of writing my first MM novel, mpreg, of course.
