Cherished by a Bear (Mate Me book 5)

All Rights Reserved ©


Rob sat on his old bed and watched his mate. He’d read over her shoulder and wanted to bring her father back to life to kill him again. He knew the minute he got his hands on Viper the scum was dead. Marcus had texted him saying he was still working on finding Ricky. He’d sent Orion one of his best stealthy bodyguards after him. Orion hadn’t reported in yet.

“I don’t know. I knew my parents didn’t care for me as they should have. Now I know I have a family out there that they stole me from. The information revealed I was around six months old when they took me. How did they take me?” Myra dropped onto the bed next to him, leaning into his body. Rob wrapped his arm around her, pulling her close.

“I’m surprised you aren’t crying.” He truly was surprised. The information in her file shocked the hell out of him.

“I honestly came to terms with a lot of this, years ago. I did a couple of years of therapy with a licensed shifter therapist. I am trying my best to use what she taught me to not freak out. I want to bring the information to a doctor and have them check me over. They took some of my eggs, Rob. I want them back if they haven’t been used. I want to make sure we can have children when we want them someday.” Rob shook his head. She was thinking about their future children.

“I am happy with just Adam if you cannot have children, or we can adopt if you want one,” he replied. He didn’t want her to feel like she had to give him more children.

“I want to have babies,” she replied. He saw the determined look in her eyes.

“Okay, when all of this is over with Viper we can talk to a fertility doctor,” he promised, kissing her temple.

“Good, I don’t want to talk about this anymore. I want to enjoy spending time with your family. Has Marcus found Ricky yet?”

“No. Orion is hot on his trail though and Marcus is waiting for him to check in.” He pulled out his phone to make sure he had missed no texts from his brother.

“Okay. Come on, I want to get to know your parents.” She stood and stretched. Rob decided he needed to keep a close eye on Myra. Being taken from her actual family couldn’t be a good feeling.

“Want a shower before we go back out there? We’ve been traveling almost the entire day,” he suggested. She smirked at him, putting her hands on her hips.

“You just want to see me naked,” she replied with a wink. Rob laughed, picking her up in his arms and taking her down the hall to the bathroom.

“Stay.” He held out his hands and went back to his room for their shower things. Grabbing two towels out of the hallway closet, he went back to the bathroom to find the shower running and Myra leaning in to test the temperature. He growled his pleasure in seeing her shirt ride up to expose some of her tattooed back.

“Did I ever tell you how sexy you are?” he asked, wrapping his arms around her waist nipping at her neck. She relaxed into his touch and sighed.

“We are at your parents’ house.”

“So? Marcus and Ellie mated here two years ago this Christmas,” he replied, tilting her head to kiss her lips.

“Not the same. We are already mated,” she pointed out, touching the mark she left on his shoulder. Rob shuddered, turned her around, and slammed her into the wall, capturing her lips in a promising kiss. Myra softened against him, letting Rob enter her mouth with his tongue. He dove in and moaned, loving the taste of her. His hands made quick work of her clothes, she did the same to his. Once they were both naked, he picked her up and set her into the shower tub combo. The warm water cascaded down on their bodies, adding to their passion. Rob couldn’t get enough of his mate. She was made for him.

“Let me touch you, I promise we won’t be loud,” he whispered, reaching for a washcloth and her body wash. Even though she said she was okay, he wanted to show her she had a family with Adam and him. She was loved and never forget it. Kneeling, he started at her feet and worked his way up to her thighs. He stopped at her hips and turned her around. Looking up, he saw her lean against the tile, spreading her legs slightly. He was sorely tempted to sink into her from behind, but that wouldn’t be worshipping her. Rob placed a kiss on each ass cheek before rubbing them with the cloth. He loved the story on her back, each tattoo told him something about her. Standing, he ran the cloth over the colorful tattoos.

“I love the stories your tattoos tell,” he murmured, kissing her shoulder and ear.

“Rob,” she moaned. He chuckled, turning her back to face him so he could continue to wash her body. He ran the cloth over her stomach, his hand resting on the scar too deep for any tattoo to hide.

“That is where they must have taken my kidney,” she remarked, he leaned forward and kissed it.

“You are beautiful.”


“I mean it, Myra. Every part of you is beautiful. Your strength is beautiful. How you love our son is beautiful. How you love me is beautiful. You are so amazing and I am in awe of you daily.” Rob captured her lips in a passionate kiss, pressing her against the tile again. He loved this woman, and he wanted her to know how amazing he thought she was.

“Rob, you are making me cry,” she gasped when he released her.

“Only tears of joy, baby,” he ordered, kissing her nose, then backing her under the spray to wash off the suds.

“My turn,” she announced snagging the washcloth taking his body wash to rub him down. He moaned when her hands touched him. He watched her like a hawk as she slid down to her knees.

“Myra,” he warned. She gave him a wicked smile and slipped his hard erection into her mouth. Rob gripped the shower bar to keep his hands off her hair. He didn’t want to force her faster than she wanted to. He would let her take control. Her mouth sucked onto him, pulling him deep into her throat. He groaned, shifting my hips. Her hands rested on his thighs as she sucked him hard. Pleasure raced through him. He did his best not to spill himself down her throat. Then she used her teeth to scrape along the sides of his cock. He gasped and thrust forward. Myra purred down his thick length, pushing his orgasm closer to the surface.

“Oh baby, you feel so good.” One of his hands slid down, resting in her hair, holding her, guiding her. Her cheeks sucked in, making her mouth wrapped around him tightly. Rob roared, his bear pushed forward as his orgasm rocked through his body. He held onto the shower bar for a moment as Myra sucked the last drops from his now softening cock.

“Myra, you didn’t have to do that for me,” he said once his body was his own again.

“I wanted to. You loving me makes me want to make you feel good. I love you, Rob.” He smiled down at her, picking her up in his arms, and kissed her.

“Come on, let’s get dried off and back down to my parents for dinner.” He turned off the shower, and they dried off, exchanging small kisses as they dressed. He couldn’t get enough of his mate.

Let me know what you think!
