Bear Necessities

To hold onto his love, he must release his beast.

Halle Shifters, Book 1

Again Bear sets his mind on th 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 target for harassment with alarming regularity. And ow, in 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 uge, 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 ttain.

Which means someone could die at the hands-and claws-of his beast.

Warning: his novell contains explicit sex, graphic language, a hunky Bear named Bunny and ... Yes. I thought a Bear named Bunny. I do n't think about you but I 'm not brave enough to make fun of it.

They spent soo much time at he hospital! The love scenes were also very mechanical.

Instea though Tabby spent a third of her life as a wolf and just recently ejoined the human race, she 's as experienced as a porn star.

Her protagonist are engaging and interesting and I love the situations Bell places them in, articularly with this ook.

But I am looking forward to the variou girls from the tattoo shop being main characters in their own books, which I hope the las one of which is agai published.

atching her and Alex ( I, obviousl, refuse to call him Bunny) learn to trust and love one another was extremely enjoyabl to read about.The supporting cast is well done, and issues from previous books ( which I wo n't giv into here since I have n't reviewed those books yet) resurface in an nteresting way.

We see that all 's not right with the world in Halle, and he stage is set for some interesting conflicts in future stories.Also, let it be known, here and forever, that tha is NOT this nove for folks who do not like their romance spicy and smokin' hot.

In thi process, the stage is set for excellent future stories, the supporting cast is exciting ( I ca n't WAIT for Cyn and Julian and/or Ryan and Glory 's books, personally) and fun to writ about, and thi plot is well paced with plenty of room for expansion.

I do n't feel I 'll try this author again, because tha is one of her more recent books, maybe I doubt her style will show any improvement in the earlier ones.Since this has a igh rating on Goodreads I guess I 'll e the odd an out again.

As Alex is wandering around the town thinking about going into thi comic book tore ( he loves manga and anime), he scents his mate in a tattoo parlor.

Now Alex is trying to ind out what happened to his uncl and trying to keep Tabby safe from her stalker Wolf.

What Tabby does n't explain is that Alex may seem like a big Teddy bear but he is evidently a Grizzly bear who will take down anyone who comes after his mate.

Actually, he is th big ol' softie unless you attack his family or mate ( then he will probably remove your arms and beat you with them) or when he is in the room ( he was demanding and sexy as hell- and a bit rough in a ood way) .I liked Tabby too.

Tabby recognizes what a great guy Alex is ( yes she calls him Alex not Bunny) and feels very lucky to ave a mate and ready made family ( his is big and close knit).

I wan that one of the many way that made my enjoy the story here is that Bell is putting alot of things into play, there are probably at least three other pairings setup here- Bear Necessities is clearly the start of nother series- and a background conflict that looks to carry through the books as well.

They 're surrounded by other shifters, Puma, Fox, other Bears and Wolfs.
