    Paranormal Fantasy Romance

    I loved the first chapter of this book and thought that it had so much potential. I even liked the first part of chapter two where Berg meets Charlie but from that point on the story, to me, became rather chaotic. There were so many names that even writing them down to keep track didn’t help much and there were so many things taking place it felt like everything but the kitchen sink had been thrown in. The sisters seemed so close in chapter one and also very together for children but they did not carry that through as adults. So, the story is about three “sisters” with honey badger blood. They are not all from the same mother and father but are raised together. We are introduced to them when they show up on their grandfather’s doorstep at ages 8, 11 and 12 and then we don’t see them again till they are full grown and in action mode. There is someone out to get them, people to thwart, fights at the drop of a hat, mental institutions, panic attacks, personal attacks, a bit of romance, shapeshifting, heists, robbing, family unknown unearthed, chases, killing, maiming and more. I think the main thing is that I just could not relate to many if any of the characters. I think this is a series that is not my cup of tea but I would like to thank NetGalley and Kensington Books for the ARC – This is my honest review. 2-3 Stars

    Catch me if I Fall

    Suddenly awakened by a phone telling her to GET OUT!!! Charlie rushes to the balcony only to be too slow to dodge a bullet. Falling over the rail naked would be a bad thing except a big handsome bodyguard is waiting below to save her. Sneak peek of the first chapter promises for a great read. Look forward to more... THIS HAS BEEN ADDED SINCE I HAVE READ THE WHOLE BOOK!!! Only down point of this book was having to wait so long between the first chapter last year and the complete story now. It was fantastic and worth the wait. I never wanted the pages to end. Had it all - - fantastic author first off who is able to weave words together so artfully. Action, Romance, Great Characters, Paranormal flavor and fast moving prose. Hope for another book involving these amazing badger sisters and the bear triplets that live down the street.

    I loved it! It was hilarious!

    If I could give this 10 stars, I would! I absolutely loved this book. I don't think I have laughed so hard as I did with these characters. As crazy as the antics these ladies got themselves into, I never felt like the humor was too much. Yes, it was silly but in the best way possible. There are so many quotes I would love to display in my review but then I would be copying pretty much the whole book. Shelly Laurenston is my kind of humor! Hot and Badgered is Charlie and Berg's story but it felt like it was also Stevie, Max, Dag and Britta's book. And maybe Dutch and Kyle's. For having so many people in this book, I did not get lost at all. I loved every character and what they brought to this story. I know some of these side characters are from previous books. I'm fairly new to this author so I haven't read them yet, but I never felt like I needed to read any of them first. What this book did was make me want to go immediately buy every book Shelly has published. This was fantastic and I can't recommend it enough for readers who love comedy and paranormal romance books. You won't find anything better. I will leave you with one quote that is in the beginning of the book to give you a taste of what Charlie and her sisters are like. "If you lose your legs I'll get you a wheelchair with a Ferrari motor that goes from zero to sixty in 4 seconds. Wouldn't that be great?" "I'd rather have my legs still attached to my body" "That's such a narrow view. What about bionic legs? Bionic legs would be so cool." ARC provided by NetGalley.

    Action, laughs, and romance - it has it all!

    #HoneyBadgersRule because this was a smart, sexy, laugh out loud (really!) action packed story with never, not a one, dull moment! We get to meet the three Honey Badger sister, connected by their father, with different mothers. This is the story of Charlie, and we get to know her and her sisters Max and Stevie. Charlie is half-wolf, but can't shift. Max is full honey badger, and came to live with Charlie and her mom when her mom went to prison. Stevie is half-Siberian tiger, and her mom dropped her off with Charlie's mom for an afternoon and never came back. The story starts with the three sisters arriving at Charlie's grandfathers pack after her mom was killed by bad guys after her dad. Dangerous, even as children, you know what you are getting What we get is a persistant grizzly named Berg, who is a triplet, and lives with his brother and sister, who falls for Charlie the moment she drops in naked in his hotel room. She ends up crossing his path again, and he tries to pursue her. She likes him, but feels her family is cursed, so warns him away. He doesn't give up, and before they both know it, they are in a relationship Crazy is too tame a word for the antics of the characters in the book, insane is a better term. We get to see where so many of our favourites from the pride series are now, a few years later, and the Parker-Louis family is front and centre, along with a teenage Kyle. There were a few times I had to stop reading because I was laughing too much If you have been waiting for the Honey Badgers, you will not be disappointed. If you are looking for a fun read, you will love this. If you like some action and mystery with your romance, this has that too. In other words, this probably has something you are looking for, so give it a read!

    The Honey Badgers are Back!

    I received an Advanced Reading Copy of Hot and Badgered from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. As always, the following review consists solely of my opinions and mine alone. I then reread the entire series so it was all nice and fresh before I dived into the ARC. n Hot and Badgered, we meet a whole new set of shifters and see the return of some of our favourites as well. I was almost fooled by the prologue and was worried I wouldn't have any Blayne, Dee-Ann, or Livvy cameos in Hot and Badgered, but I shouldn't have doubted Shelly Laurenston to deliver. I'll never doubt you again, Ms Laurenston. Hot and Badgered focuses on an ostracised branch of Livvy's family, the MacKilligan sisters. The oldest of three sisters, Charlie Taylor-MacKilligan is an anomaly. She and her youngest sister, Stevie, are only half honey badger which isn't a thing since HB genetics totally dominate in every other pairing with honey badgers involved. Together with their middle sister, Max, the MacKilligan sisters are on the run from the the first paragraph. Their guesses as to who's behind the hit squad after them varies from a Peruvian drug lord to government types, but one thing they know for sure is that it's definitely their no-good useless father's fault. Charlie jumps off her hotel room's balcony and lands on Cooper Jean-Louise Parker's balcony (yes, the JLPs are baaaaack!) and Berg Dunn is Coop's bodyguard on duty. Berg and Charlie take on the black-ops types that crashed the party and while Berg has no idea who she is, he starts falling for Charlie then and there, even as she takes off again. She meets up with Max, and the two go to Switzerland to break their genius sister, Stevie, out of yet another 'mental health spa' and then they head to Manhattan and a Yang Family safe house (aka Livvy's house that is most decidedly not a Yang Family safe house). Eventually Berg takes Charlie and her sisters to a place he knows will be perfect for the sisters to hideout until they figure things out. It doesn't hurt that it's a house in the same neighbourhood as the house Berg shares with the other members of his triplet set, Britta and Dag. The safest place he could think of was in a bear-only neighbourhood and as long as Max doesn't raid their hives and Charlie keeps stressbaking, everybear is more than happy to welcome the sisters to the neighbourhood. It isn't until we're introduced to Dee-Ann's daughter that I realised that Hot and Badgered takes place at least 7 years after Livvy's story, Bite Me, which I wasn't too happy about. If you've read the entire series of Laurenston's from Eggie Ray's short story to Sara Morrighan's introduction to her true self to Mace Llewellyn's reuniting with his Bronx love to the mighty bearcat that is Novikov (who is not a serial killer), you've seen the craziness that I love and adore in Laurenston's books. And I was so upset that I missed the pregnancy crazies that I just know Dee-Ann and Blayne experienced through their pregnancies. I will literally get down on my hands and knees and beg Ms Laurenston for a book that has flashbacks (which I steadfastly despise) just so I can read how wild Blayne got or how terrifying Dee-Ann was during their pregnancy days. Moving on before I start that wailing again (I get emotionally invested in my favourite books!). Due to a few miscommunications (I totally blame Max's best friend), Dee-Ann and Cella (yes, the cat killer is back!) end up chasing Charlie and her sisters around Manhattan, including at the Sports Center where so many things I love happen and I can't tell you about them because it would spoil the story. We get to see Sissy Mae and Mitch crash a house party, the sisters gain a Jean-Louise Parker prodigy roommate, Ric gets back in the kitchen (while Dee-Ann is teaching their daughter what her daddy taught her), Stevie faces her fear of bears in Shen Li, and Charlie gets a job to do what she does best that pays over $80K for a few days work. And we get a new shifter breed introduced! What else can I say to convince you that you need to read Hot and Badgered? There's moderate bloodshed, funny moments abound, and favourite characters return in cameos! There are only a few things I disliked about Hot and Badgered. Mostly the fact that we skipped witnessing pregnant Dee-Ann and pregnant Blayne being in the same room. Because if you know Dee-Ann and Blayne, you know things happened. I'm not a fan of horrible fathers like Charlie, Max, and Stevie are cursed with but that's pretty much my daddy issues popping out of the closet to say howdy-do. But the likes by far outweigh the dislikes for me. I love that the MacKilligan sisters are half-sisters (Charlie is half-wolf, Stevie is half-tiger, and Max is full honey badger) and they're all raised by one of the moms until they end up having to go live with Charlie's grandfather. Max is outright unstable but then you have Stevie who is heavily medicated for her anxiety issues and when she
