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?
Let this introductory novella transport you to Providence Paranormal College. Extrahumans of all types abound on this urban campus on the East Side of Providence, Rhode Island. This Ivy-League college recently opened its doors to anyone with enough talent. The Admissions Department at PPC enrolls humans with extraordinary grades, the magically and psychically inclined, vampires, werewolves, changelings, and even magic shifters like dragons and Kelpies. Come take a tour! If you like YA and NA Paranormal Romance or Urban Fantasy with strong romantic subplots, you’ll feel right at home here.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I want to say upfront that bear shifters aren’t my favorite. I prefer my wolves and cat shifters the most. They’re just my preference.
That being said, I LOVED this book. It’s a fast-paced novella that takes place over one weekend, with a sleepy bear and a snarky, lonely girl, the only human on campus. Throw in plenty of references that my inner geek loved, some sexual tension, insecurities and sabotage and you’ve got the beginnings of a great story.
The writing was clever, the plotting good and the mysteries that kept popping up had me reading until I finished. I could not put this one down. I will be looking for the next book in this series.

An early snowfall has caused Bobby Tremain’s bear side want to hibernate. The problem? It is the week before finals at Providence Paranormal College. Being the first in his shapeshifting family to attend college, he wants to make his parents proud. Now if only he could stay awake.
Lynn Frampton is brilliant and knows what it takes to excel at school. Unfortunately, her sarcastic sense of humor and inability to hold back caustic remarks seems to keep her from making any friends at all.
