Does a bear shift in the woods?
Well, partially. That was what got grizzly shifter Ted Farnsworth into trouble. He wasn't trying to break the Secrecy Pact. He just wants people to see the real him. So he signs up with the mate-matching service Supernatural Selection — which guarantees marriage to a perfect partner. Not only will Ted never be lonely again, but once his new beaver shifter husband arrives, they'll build Ted's dream wilderness retreat together. Win-win.
Quentin Bertrand-Harrington, scion of an incubus dynasty, has abstained from sex since nearly killing his last lover. When his family declares it's time for him to marry, Quentin decides the only way not to murder his partner is to pick someone who's already dead. Supernatural Selection finds him the ideal vampire, and Quentin signs the marriage agreement sight unseen.
But a mix-up at Supernatural Selection contracts Quentin with Ted. What's Ted supposed to do with an art historian who knows more about salad forks than screwdrivers? And how can Quentin resist Ted's mouthwatering life force? Yet as they work together to untangle their inconvenient union, they begin to wonder if their unexpected match might be perfect after all.

Mate-matching service Supernatural Selection guarantees marriage to a perfect partner. Nothing can go wrong...until something did. Ted is waiting for his new beaver shifter husband to arrive. Quentin found his perfect match in the form of a vampire. But when their contracts get mixed up, they have to deal with each other, until they found a way to cancel their unwanted union and get finally marry to their perfect partners. But the feelings between each other start to grow. Now, they start to question if this accidental match might be more perfect than they thought.
I had a good time reading this book. The characters are both lovely. Ted is particularly sweet. The book had some humorous moments that were really entertaining. I loved the idea of a mistake in the matchmaking service. Both characters have issues fitting their expected place in their world. Both had personalities opposed to what people would expect from them. It makes them hard to find someone to share their lives with. The fact that it was a supernatural story makes it more appealing.
One of the things that I loved the most about the book is that it didn't try to force their relationship. They had some hard time accepting the other and it was perfect. I loved how they had to fight to get their happy ending. It was a slow burn love story, which I loved. One of the things that might be a bit of an issue about it was the fact that they get together too far in the book. It left the readers little time to enjoy them as a couple. Other than that, I had a wonderful time reading the book. They make a great couple.
In general, it was an enjoyable love story with some humorous tone. It can be easily liked by readers who love M/M romance and who prefer paranormal books.
