Advance Praise for Jay Neal’s Waking Up Bear
“Waking Up Bear is a tremendously fun and wildly sexy romp through Beardom. Written with great humor, honesty, compassion, and arousing eroticism, Neal’s stories explore the passionate, romantic nature of Bears and admirers. His heroes are often shy, self-doubting men who somehow find the balls to grab the fantasy guys they desire and the love they seek. In creating an erotic world where Bears are the hottest of studs and most loving of men, Neal successfully transforms Bear fantasy into Bear reality on the page.” ~ Daniel M. Jaffe, author, The Limits of Pleasure and Jewish Gentle
