Publisher's Summary

To hold on to his love, he must release his beast.

Once a Bear sets his mind on a mission, it's best to stay out of his way. Alexander "Bunny" Bunsun is that Bear. Something's not right with his cousin Chloe, and he's come to Halle, PA, to sort it out, turn his Harley around, and head home to Oregon. Until an enticing scent lures him into the local tattoo shop. There she is. An inked, Southern-drawled she-Wolf with lime-green hair. His perfect mate.

Tabitha Garwood's rotten day just got worse. Her Outcast status makes her a target for harassment with alarming regularity. And now, in the middle of a root touch-up, looking like a half-melted Skittle, she's met her destined mate. The only upside? She finally has a protector in the form of a huge, tattooed, shaved-head Bear who vibrates with carefully restrained power. When Chloe is left for dead and Tabby is threatened, only Alex can keep his growing family safe. Giving Tabby the loving home she needs, though, could come at a price - Alex must give up the control he's worked a lifetime to attain. Which means someone could die at the hands - and claws - of his beast.

Warning: This novel contains explicit sex, graphic language, a hunky Bear named Bunny and... Yes. I said a Bear named Bunny. I don't know about you, but I'm not brave enough to make fun of it.

absolutely delightful and humorous

I was either smiling or laughing throughout the entire book. I would recommend if you like humor with a little intrigue thrown in.

Worth the wait.

Would you consider the audio edition of Bear Necessities to be better than the print version?

No. While it is an excellent audio, they're never better than the actual book.

Any additional comments?

While I'm thrilled that Bell has finally started doing audios of her Halle books, I'm disappointed that she didn't start with the Halle Pumas since they preceded Halle Shifters. I wait anxiously for more audios!

A wolf named Tabby

I love these books, the Halle shifters are one of the best I've read and now listened, Tabby is the main character in this one, but you get to step into the Halle world and its wonderful cast of fun and lovable characters, the dynamic between the girls is amazing and sometimes hilarious, think fog horns and rolled up newspapers to the nose. So if you love sexy stories with soft moments, scary ones and goofy goodness, well this series is for you. Have fun

This is one of my all time favorite series. I've been reading this book several times and was exited when I saw it on audible.

One of my favorites

I was so happy when I saw that Bear Necessities came to audio!! Great series! A big bald and strong man just melts my butter! Dana Marie does an awesome job with her books! There's just enough craziness and a great love story! I can't wait until the rest of them comes out in audio!

Love love love this audio book!

Was thrilled that this came out in audio as I owned the e-book versions of the entire series. Halle and the Poconos are the best ever

meh I have read better.

it was okay. the story was kinda blah. the missing of shifters was okay but the immediate acceptance of them by humans was underwhelming

Great Start to a new series

I can't wait to listen to the next one....Already downloaded it. Although there was an instant claiming there was a lot this couple had to go thru and also we get the set up for our next couples and I can't wait to listen / read their stories as well.

This really kept me guess what the heck was going on in Halle! This book had everything for me...a great H/H, great hot and heavy scenes, characters with real spunk and sas...great strong women characters, hot Alpha Males, intrigue and more!

Worth a credit: YES!!!! but for under $10 its also worth the money if you want!

Very enjoyable!

I really enjoyed this shifter story. Bunny was just to die for, so caring and gentle with his little wolf, as I have found many big men are. I shall start on the second book soon, and see what happens with Julian and Cynthia. Can't wait!
