    Rick's Bear is all about the characters. Rick is so sweet and I love his quirk of spouting off random, obscure facts. His aversion to crowds and attention makes being around others a challenge, but that's something with which Bear is more than happy to help him. Bear is so attentive and caring, putting Rick first and making sure Rick is not uncomfortable. Together they are one of those couples who complement each other perfectly.I did think the drama that was introduced was a bit over the top, something I've noticed keeps happening in the books from this series. Overall though, I liked Rick's Bear quite a bit more than the first two books of the series.This story gets 4 stars from me, and those readers 18+ who like sweet with extra drama will enjoy this book.

    I really wanted to like this. I really, really did. It has a premise of hurt/comfort that I love and hoped would be set up well, but I had a really tough time with this. I found the characters one dimensional, there were way too many time jumps, situations that could have been set up to pull at the reader's heartstrings and make the reader engage in the story were off page or barely given attention, and the story was mostly tell and no real show.I liked Bear and Rick at the surface, but that's all we got - surface. I would have liked to have gotten to know the characters better and gotten a good insight into their relationship and romance. This felt like it was on super speed, and I didn't get a good relationship arc.I also felt like three instances thrown into the story to create drama were ultimately unnecessary. I would have much preferred a love story that focused on the characters.I really wanted to like this, but I can't say that I did.

    This definitely opened my eyes to the Boys of Brighton series and its author. The story hits on some very sensitive points such as past domestic abuse, both physical and verbal, its lasting effects, panic attacks, social anxiety and depression. It also focuses on the process of healing. The MC's, Rick and Bear, both have troubled pasts. They both show how much more they are than just the sum of their parts. Their story is full of angst, sweetness, love and passion. The cast of Rick's Bear is well thought out and portrayed, all playing well off of each other. I would have liked to see a little more of Rick & Bear's relationship at the end, before the epilogue. Overall, I really enjoyed this story and I look forward to reading more from this author. I voluntarily read a free Advance Reader Copy for my honest opinion and review.

    Bear is the whole package. He is caring, loving and considerate. When he finds out about Rick's social anxiety he reads up on how to help. He's adorable in his kindness towards Rick. I found Rick to be sweet and brave. I liked that as the story progressed, he didn't get magically cured from his anxieties. Too many books like to make mental health issues either easily fixed or disappear all together. I am now wanting to read more in the series. I received a free copy for an honest review.

    This is the second story that I’ve read in the Boys of Brighton series but it can most assuredly be read as a standalone.This time M. Tasia gives us the story of Bear and Rick – the ex-biker and the shy librarian. I loved the match up between these completely different characters, and I appreciated that although the big, more confident Bear did instigate the relationship with the smaller, awkward Rick, he didn’t possess all of the answers to make everything perfect. What he did have was the patience and gentleness to draw out Rick’s character and let us get to know this hesitant man.This story actually didn’t go the way I expected it to. After reading the previous book in the series and having danger mentioned here in the blurb, I though we were going to have more violence and action than what we actually did. Perhaps in the form of Bear’s ex-motor cycle gang? But that isn’t a complaint. I liked the fact that the author doesn’t seem to have a “type” of story and isn’t stuck only writing one thing. Instead the focus was much more on the two main characters building their relationship and then expanding their family to include Bear’s sister and son. I enjoyed the contrast between the previous book and this one. Whereas that one was sexy, this one is sweet. Although that’s not to say that Rick and Bear aren’t hot together.There were a lot of time jumps in the story. To be honest I didn’t have a problem with it but I feel the need to mention it because I know that many readers won’t like it.The ending was great, I was grinning and loving it…all up until those last few sentences. WTF!? Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t bad, and it wasn’t a cliffhanger. It’s just made me too impatient for the next book now! I’m actually really looking forward to continuing this series.Reviewed for Love Bytes Reviewshttp://lovebytesreviews.com/2017/03/1...

    This is a series that is best read in order, but you can hop around if certain aspects draw/repel you from one story or another.In general each book is fairly similar: One very “alpha” male (or 2!) finds himself attracted to a more submissive male and the desire to protect and love and care for him drives him to be super adorable, mushy and overprotective!Of course there is a life threatening danger putting our guys on the line and usually something horrible in the past making them seem even more vulnerable.There are plenty of hot smexy times but I won’t say that is the focus of the story. There isn’t a lot of humiliation that you sometimes see in uber alpha males and the more submissive guys in these stories all have strong backbones!I really loved finding this series and hope to see more from this author as well as to continue to enjoy this series in it’s entirety!I think I loved book one the best (so far) because Gabe just takes over Johnny’s life in this whirlwind and it’s pretty hysterical! There are also some great grannies and really lovable extended family members to keep us all entertained.Highly recommended for fans of very sappy and sweet Alpha/Omega type romance (nothing paranormal here!) and for fans of romance with humor as well as that hurt/comfort feel.4.5 of 5 stars for the series

    Rick's Bear is the third book in the Boys of Brighton series. I think this just might be my favorite one in this series. Clem “Bear” Mitchell owns the only diner in Brighton and Rick Johansson the Librarian both have their issues. They both seems to have feels for each other but it takes a little while for them to get together. This book is full of emotion, greif, fear, suspense, and love. I loved this storyline and am enjoying this series. I highly recommend this book. Can't wait to read the last one.

    I'll say right at the start somethings could have been set up better for Rick and Bear. Things moved fast but we must look at it like this. This is a short read. Things need to move fast. Explain the past, protect the present and project a bit of the future. This was some good characters that were opposites finding comfort with each other.

    Holy cliffhanger!Another incredible story about the great people of Brighton. This was a great HEA for Bear and Rick with plenty of the other characters from previous books. And the epilogue left a cliffhanger that I hope we will see resolved in future books.

    Book 3 and we have Bear and Rick.....I felt so sorry for Rick and what he'd been through but Bear was just perfect for him.....The storyline again was a bit predictable but still didn't spoil the read....A great series that has just had me go and order the whole set in paperback x

    I love this series don't get me wrong, however I didn’t enjoy as much because of the the unnecessary drama and unrealistic plot.

    This is the first I’ve read by this author. The author set a good stage for the environment and people of Brighton where these characters live and they were easily pictured as they came and went through the lives of Rick and Bear. I was able to get inside the minds of both Rick and Bear and understand why they felt and reacted as they did. The emotional and psychological growth was lovely to watch.It was so sweet to see Bear tiptoe his way into Rick’s life and heart. To see this big, burly man ease his way around the object of his affection in an effort to gain his trust and love was beautiful to experience. He is patient, protective and sexy.Seeing Rick respond to these gestures was just as beautiful. The author gave us insight into his social anxiety issues and I cringed and cheered right along with him. He accepted what Bear was offering and even though it was a struggle at times, gave back what he was given.I enjoyed this book. I do need to go back and read the others because the hints of back story has me very curious about the other people in this town.I am voluntarily reviewing the free advance reader copy I received from the author.

    I liked this book. It was the first of the series I had read and I am going to go back and read the other two. Bear's protectiveness was such a wonderful thing and just what Rick needed in his life; somewhere to feel safe and cared for. Slight misunderstandings and a couple of bad guys thrown into the mix shows Rick he may be more than what he thinks.
