I admit to getting away from this genre (m/f, shifters) because I was really unhappy with the way the characters (mainly the females) always played out. Not to mention that the stories were simply too predictable. This was so not like the others I've read. This was recommended to me by a new friend who knew that I needed something light after a fiasco of a book I read yesterday. This was absolutely perfect. The characters are perfect. The story line is perfect. No whiny female getting o...more
The sex, holy crap, the sex! It was amazing. Now I am not typically one to enjoy books with graphic sex scenes, and no it is not because I am a prude or it makes me uncomfortable, I just tend to think the author gets it wrong. Either it is too animalistic and lacks emotion or it is anticlimactic (no pun intended) and lacks passion. The author here however manages to cap...more
One: All the side characters in this book are from the authors Puma series so I didn't appreciate most of the banter between mates and the pride seeing as I missed all their stories. I think I would have enjoyed this book alot more if I had read them, especially Max and Emma's book.
Two: The storyline, hrmmmmmmm...I was expecting more. The main story was that Tabby was getting pushed around by Gary and his two sidek...more

Folks, stop what you're doing and prepare to one click order. After reading (and enjoying) the entire Halle Pumas series of novellas (reviews for installments 3-5 are forthcoming, don't worry), Bear Necessities is not only the first full length novel set in that world, and features the familiar cast of characters, but is also the first installment where the author really flexes her muscles, so to speak, when it comes to this series. Let's just say that waiting for the next book is going to be ve...more
Alexander 'Bunny' Bunsun is a bear shifter from Oregon. He and his cousin are in town to check up on his cousin Chloe, a fox shifter who's been ac...more
What the men end up with literally within a few hours of hitting the town of Halle is - mated, caught in the middle of a near tragedy and having a front row seat to what is amounting to a three ring circus in the small town of Halle.
Bunny smell his mate before he even sees her and with some determ...more

Tabby is an outcast wolf shifter who craves real asylum, comfort and home. She lives in a small co...more
Tabby the wolf and Bunny the Bear are hot. Very hot. But almost as good is the set up for Bunny's cousin Ryan and his mate, and the almost magical Julian and his mate. Looking forward to both of those sto...more
There, I said it. I have the craziest obesession with bear shifters. I just love them. Maybe I should be worried....
For that reason alone Bear Necessities was the perfect book for me. But even better, Dana Marie Bell made it a fun sexy ride.
When Alexander "Bunny" Bunsen first comes to Halle because of his cousin Chloe, he wanders past a tattoo studio and what's that tantalizing smell?....of course, his mate Tabby.
Now Tabby is a very speci...more
And there seemed like there was a little something missing too. Maybe it was just my take on it...but I couldn't really get into the book until 30%. There were a TON of characters we were introduced to, a TON of different kinds of shifters (well like 4 bu...more
There are already a bunch of established relationships in town so i was all 'where are their stories???' and i think from something said in one of the other reviews there are novellas for those. Well that would have ben nice to know> I prefer reading things in order if i can and would have gone back and read them first if i had known. And second - I dont knoow if its just weird kindle formatting of the story but there was no clear fo...more
That's the reason I don't like F-M romance novels. The way women are portrayed in romance books is just horrible. So I stick to M-M books. But from time to time I get my hopes up... and... wait for it... wait for it... yep! Nothing...more
There was a brilliant story line that will pull you in within the first few pages. I was laughing so hard about 10 pages in, and I imediately knew I was going to love this book, and Oh BOY was I right.
At the top of my list of things I loved were the main couple... Tabby (wolf) an...more
Believe me when I say that Bear aint no Bunny! *huge grin* The sex scenes will scorch your eyeballs, make your heart palpitate, and leave nuthin' dry....if ya know what I mean!! *winks*
I *LOVE* Bell's sense of humor and her play with the characters of the Halle shifters series! Emma kills me every time with her mouth, whi...more
The characters are fun and make you feel like a part of the family and once you get past the ridiculous names, Bunny and Tabby were great. Alex Bunsum (aka Bunny) is a Bear from a family of mixed shifters. He is on a road trip to the town of Halle with his cousin Ryan (also a...more
I have found Bear Necessities to be the exception. I found the humor to be laugh out loud, the sex scenes hot and the characters very likable.
The only distraction I found is changing points of view. At times, I had to go back and re-read parts to see...more
All in all,...more
