Title: Bearly Awake
Author: D.R. Perry | Site
Blurb: Bobby Tremain’s life used to seem charmed, but since his dad’s crippling accident, he has an avalanche of problems. He’s the first in his family to have a shot at college, also the first to head north of Louisiana. An early snow calls his Bear to hibernate a week before finals, but he needs to pass or he flunks out of Providence Paranormal College.
Lynn Frampton’s loneliness is almost more than she can take. She went to college on the other side of the country to get away from the persistent curse of unpopularity in a small town. Once at college, Lynn’s prickly personality has pushed everyone away yet again. At least, she’s at the top of her class.
Bobby needs Lynn’s help to stay awake and pass his exam, and she discovers she needs companionship more than she’d ever imagined. Lynn’s all set to transfer to a school back home, but Bobby thinks she’s his mate. Can he keep awake long enough to pass, and more importantly, convince his love to stay?
Bobby Tremain has problems: the sky is dumping feets of snow and his Louisianna accustomed bear can’t handle it. It’s time to hibernate. Unfortunately, he can’t sleep straight through winter until spring. He’s got an important test that determines whether he flunks out of Providence Paranormal College.
In comes Lynn. Sarcastic Lynn who has always chased people away. She’s determined to help Bobby not go to sleep and to pass his test—and not only because it will affect her grade. Or, so she comes to realize.
Bearly Awake was a book filled to the brim with humor, sarcasm, and geeky/nerdy jokes. I found myself laughing more than I thought possible at the interactions. There were times it was sweet and serious, and the going into and out of these moments into funnier ones wasn’t the least bit rough.
I loved the characters. From mains Bobby and Lynn, to side characters! Blaine, Henry, and Maddie are my favories, even if Maddie is more mentioned and only seen properly once. Jeannie comes in close behind them.
The characters were enjoyable and three-dimensional. I was immediately drawn into the conflict because of their personalities and relationships.
If you’re looking for a sweet, short paranormal romance, I definitely recommend Bearly Awake by D.R. Perry.
