Baehrly Breathing Book Blast {Review+Giveaway}

Title:  Baehrly Breathing
Series:  Goldie Locke and the Were Bears # 1
Author:  Elizabeth A Reeves
Published:  May 7th, 2013
Word Count:  approx. 45,000
Genre:  Contemporary Fantasy

Synopsis:  A spin-off of the popular Cindy Eller series.
The first book in the Goldie Locke and the Were Bears series.
It’s difficult to be taken seriously when you are a member of the Magical community and saddled with the unfortunate name ‘Goldie Locke’. It certainly doesn’t help if you are also about five feet tall, blond, and most commonly described as ‘cute.’ What was a girl to do?
Become one of the most dreaded Magical environmental lawyers of all time?
Goldie isn’t there yet, but she’s well on her way when a case drags her into uncharted territory– working with Ordinary officials to figure out why ‘unusual’ remains are being discovered all around New England.
With her hands full and a new dragon on the way, Goldie’s hunches about this case may prove to be all-too true– this stuff is bad business!


 My Review!

Oh this book was so short. I read it in about 3 hours. I wish it was longer because I loved every minutes of it. I didn’t want it to end. OK, so we have Goldie Locke who works for the three Baehr’s. I see the irony in this. LOL Someone is killing magical creatures and Goldie is not going to stand by and watch it happen. She was so determined and cared for the animals so deeply, it was hard not to like her. Well, to make things worse for her, she has to work with an Ordinary, which is a human. She is not supposed to let him find out about her, but a lot of things don’t go according to plan. As they get closer to the killer, the killer gets closer to Goldie.

Someone’s time is up and Goldie hopes it isn’t hers.

So I literally can’t wait to start the next book. I want to learn more about Goldie and what she has become, as well as two hot hunks. ;) There were a lot of magical creatures and hopefully in the next, we will learn more about them as well. There were pink elephants, zombie chickens, three headed dogs and much much more. This whole world is new to me, not reading Goldie’s sister’s Cindy’s books. We get to see quite a bit of the world in this one but not all of it. Now, all I need is the second book to continue my love for Goldie and the three Baehrs. :D

Goldie is five feet tall and all attitude. She is an earth witch and a lawyer, who happens to be very short. What she doesn’t make up in height she makes it up in being tough and smart. She knows she is cute and doesn’t like it when people call her that, but she will use it to her advantage if necessary.

Kodi is one of the Baehrs. He is the youngest of the three and has dated Goldie for the past three years, until recently. He really is cute, sweet and cuddly bear. :D Mmmmm He is a little stuck on himself though. That’s why they broke up or as Kodi would say, why she broke up with him when he didn’t want to. I really liked Kodi and I think he really does love Goldie. He just needs to show it more. I also hope she ends up with him. SQUEE

Donovan is the ordinary. He has no magic and is a cop/detective. He is working the case with Goldie to find the sick sick man responsible for all the brutal deaths of the magical creatures. He is one of those guys that go out of their way to look unimpressive, to not be noticed and he is a pro at it. He hardly ever lets his guard down. So when we do see the other side, it makes us like him. :D At first he is a bit of a jerk but once you get to know him, he is an alright guy. Don’t get me wrong, I really like him, but I don’t thin he is right for Goldie.

4 Stars!!!
