Bridget is finally living her dream, well sort of.  She is living in Chicago and taking design classes.  She is even starting to design some lingerie, which is what she really wants to do. The only thing she hadn’t counted on was her clientele, but she seems to have to have found a niche market.  Though it is one that if her family found out about they would never believe her.  Now if she could just get her brother’s friend Adam to see her as a woman and not the little sister of his buddy.  But, for the time being it looks like she will have to content herself with just seeing naked in her dreams.

Adam has dreamed about Bridget for years but no way is he going to pursue his buddy’s little sister.  But, when he sees her going into a strip club he is stunned and follows her.  He doesn’t even give her a chance to explain that she is there delivering costumes; he jumps to the immediate and wrong conclusion.  But, she just might be able to use this misunderstanding to her advantage, and make sure Adam sees her for who she has become.  The only problem is will Adam appreciate her mind and career choice as much as he values his own?

Bare Necessities is a hoot.  Not only did Ms. Donovan create a fantastic storyline but she also gives a number of characters such personality I could picture myself watching some of the interactions.  You will find yourself laughing at how Bridget starts to assert herself as well as how she fits in and gets what she wants.  I hope to see more from Ms. Donovan in the near future as she has a fan in me.  I Joyfully Recommend Bare Necessities and think that you will love this story as much as I did.
