REVIEW - Yogi and the Bear by Nix Knox

The Book
Release Date: 21 April 2015

If the fall is inevitable, might as well enjoy the tumble... 

Months after a scaffolding accident leaves him in chronic agony, construction worker Ryan Powell has exhausted all that Western medicine has to offer. He’s willing to try anything, even yoga, to get some relief. 

He expected to feel out of place at the New Age Center, but he never expected a power-outage bathroom encounter to magically erase his pain. When he discovers the man with the magic hands is his drop-dead-sexy yoga teacher, Ryan decides that there might just be something to this metaphysical thing, after all. 

Yogi Niklas Baumgartner has found it remarkably easy to keep his shiny vow of chastity untarnished—until now. Still, a bathroom hand job doesn’t really count as sex, right? But his footing on the no-nooky wagon slips when he realizes the big, blond bear at the back of the class is his man in the dark. 

Their unlikely attraction brings out sides of themselves they never knew lurked beneath the surface, sides it takes courage to accept. But when trust is broken, repairing the damage might just tear them apart. 

Warning: Contains a gentle giant, a dominant orgo-bunny, a pair of weighty manacles, too many movie references, accidental porn, overcoming stereotypes, and deliciously kinky sex.

My Review  3 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and Samhain Publishing, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is a new to me author and although the grammar and spelling were pretty much faultless, i did have issues with some of the content of the story.

My main problem was with Nik and his personality split which was finished too easily.  I mean if each personality is different and has a different name (Nik is shy and submissive whilst Julien was a dominant) there is something stronger going on than was presented.  Nik also has other issues, the main one with his estranged family.

Ryan is a lovely easy going guy, but he shoulders a lot of stress which has not been helped by an accident.  He also has family issues and his sisters situation detracted from the main story and didn't really add much to the plot.  

The BDSM angle also had a few issues but was know where as bad as the personality issue, but the main theme was fair sound.

Not sure i will be up to reading this book again, but could be interested into reading more from this author in time.
