Publisher's Summary

For centuries he roamed the mountains, restless and wild. Then he chose me as his mate.

He was a man once, long ago. Now people say he is nothing more than a myth, a legend, a story locals tell one another around the campfire. The tale of the mountain man who became a bear.

But I know better. He saved my life, and he watches over me still. Because I belong to him.

The man in him is old-fashioned, from a time when a headstrong woman was taken over a knee, but the beast in him is as wild as this land itself, and when he claims me, it will be truly savage

Publisher's Note: Bear includes spankings and rough, intense sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.

Hailey and Cade

This book was really good. Cade is a 200 year old man aka the spirit of the bear. He watches Hailey from afar and knows she is his mate. He rescues her from bad guys and claims her that night. He is so dominant, he treats her like a child when he punishes her by spanking her and make her stand in the corner and face the wall. Afterwards, he would pleasure her and he had one heck of an appetite. His stamina was unreal. There was some drama with bad guys who wanted the oil under the mountain under the gize of building a casino. Hailey was in their way and Cade was not having it. I love that Delta James does not drag out the drama in her books. Jack Calihan, as usual, did a great job with the narration.

sopomoric attempt

kept rolling my eyes, like really? Jack Calihan's voice is like being wrapped in deep velvet, but even his deep sexy voice can't elevate the dialog and story line.

Another great standalone by Delta James

Delta James is amazing! I really enjoyed this storyline. It’s hot and intense. Cade is an old fashion man that worships from afar Hailey. Until danger knocks at her door. What can a say about Jack Calihan he’s phenomenal.

Hailey and Cade

This was a fantastic listen. Jack Calihan is amazing at creating various distinctive characters and his performance will pull you into this audiobook and hold your attention right to the end. Hailey is not a wallflower and her independent spirit gets her into situations. But Cade, or the spirit of the bear, will be there to save her. Really explosive chemistry between these fated mates. Fun to see how they, Hailey, Kay and Charlie, bring Cade into the current century. I was either gifted or requested an audiobook copy and this is my honest review.

sexy bear shifter

Bear is an alpha male to the core. Cade is a Hot, sexy, dominant, bear shifter. He has a connection with Haley. He needs to protect her from devious Land developers. Whenever Jack Calihan narrates a story, I know I will be in for a great listen. His deep sexy, growly voice is perfect for Cade. 🎧audiobookobsessionreview🎧

Bear is a super sharp, dark, and deliciously sexy audio book with a well-built plot. Jack Calihan once again delivers a fabulous performance. He brings the characters and story to life from the pages to your ears brilliantly. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Growly in the best way

I felt the narration in my bones with Jack Calihan's growl. It's amazing how fast the tide turns from "I hate you" to "do it again".

Hot!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. I enjoyed this story, Cade is an alpha dominant bear shifter and Haley is an independent women. Cade saved Haley's life once and ten years later he does again but this time he is not letting her go! Narrator Jack Calihan does a wonderful job with the story and characters!

Misterious

Bear by Delta James was a decent story. It was everything I expected from the author. I liked the mistery of Cade's transforming to a bear and Haley's determination to fight for what she felt was right. I enjoyed Jack Calihan's narration and it definitely was a good choice to have a male narrator for this book. I liked his voice and clear speech very much. 🎧AudiobookObsessionReviewer

A Bear's Protection

Title: Bear Author: Delta James Format: Audio Narrator: Jack Calihan Genre: Dark, shifter (Bear) romance, suspense, D/S, Spanking Standalone: Yes Part of a Series: No POV: Haley and Cade Steam Level: Hot 4/5 At this point, I've read several Delta James books and Bear is what I've come to expect from her writing. While the spanking and disciple didn't bother me per se, I think if Cade had set some rules beforehand then it would have been more effective. Haley wasn't really told what he expected of her ahead of time which would have been hard. I also wish there had been an epilogue to help round out the story. Side note, as someone who was raised in Southern California in the 80's and 90's I was highly amused when we found out Just Cal's last name. Every time his first and last name were said together "and his dog Spot" went through my mind and I giggled. I received this audiobook for free from Audiobooks Unleashed. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Enjoyed This

I don’t normally Listen to “dark” romance but I think this was considered dark b/c he made her listen by spanking her. And she didn’t want him to. I don’t think It was scary dark. I enjoyed this book. HEA. The narration was great. I recommend this book. 🎧Audiobook Obsession

Dark and sexy!

This story has interesting characters. Bear is and old fashioned kind of man, or should I say bear. There’s chemistry between the MC but also dark pleasures. There’s a tough heroine who will not let herself be tamed and a man so protective you can help but love. The narration was on point too. 🎧 AudiobookObssesion 🎧

Wow!!

That was so HOT. Delta James sure knows how to heat up a room with her bad-boy alphas and head-strong heroines. This was definitely an entertaining and super-steamy story with fabulous characters. Jack Calihan's narration never fails to impress, he did a fantastic job. I loved everything about this audiobook, one I'll strongly recommend. I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook, and my unbiased review is voluntarily given.
