I got this book at the same time as Stripped Bear by Tressie Lockwood. These two books are actually together in the print book simply titled 'Bear'. I can't tell if they are the start of a series, or just two linked books at this time. In this story we are introduced to Simone, Ayana's cousin and the two new found cousins of one of Ayana's mate, Blaine.

Simone, after having issues with her mother's boyfriend putting the moves on Simone, decides to head down to North Carolina and visit her cousin

This book was OK. The heroine was a little ghetto for my liking and the ending leaves you hanging. I didn't feel like I connected with any if the characters, but the sex was hot, which is why I gave it two stars instead of one. I also don't think the plot was very believable and more editing is needed. If you are looking for hot sex and just a fun read, this is your book, but if you want an interesting plot and like able characters, pass on this one.
Now Ms Tressie I already know this read was tease and unfinished. with a curtain female shifter is unhappy about the outcome of not being choosing to mate with who she want. but anyway this read is plus and the heroine is feisty,humorous and i'm loving her. the hero's one being accepting and other need convincing that his way isn't always right, he realize accepting to adapt embrace change.

It would be great to if there is a part two for Bear Necessities. I mean it left off (to me) in a cliffhanger. I literally said," WHAT THE H**L?" lol. Dont get me wrong I liked the book. My favorite character was actually the "brooding" in charge twin. I guess because he seemed to be one of the most misunderstood characters in the book. It would be great to find out if they all succeed in making more bear babies Lol.

Great MFM

I do recommend this interracial shifter romance. Great story with hot love scenes. The main alphas are a dream come true. Read this book over and over.

I liked this book because it had great scenes, better explanation of characters than Stripped Bear, and much more explanation and detail of the story. :)
This was much better than the first one. It had some depth to it. I liked Simone's sassy character. The relationships felt real. Would read something else by this author.
