Publication Date: March 31, 2020

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

95D0361E-2D2F-4A9A-897E-3DB2C66BDCADShe’s the woman he’s been hired to kidnap. But ZeZé Vargas has other ideas . . . like getting them both out of this nightmare alive. Just one problem. She’s crazy. Certifiably. Because while he’s plotting their escape, the petite Asian beauty is plotting something much more deadly …

Max “Kill It Again” MacKilligan has no idea what one of her own is doing with all these criminal humans until she realizes that Zé has no idea who or what he is. Or exactly how much power he truly has.

But Max is more than happy to bring this handsome jaguar shifter into her world and show him everything he’s been missing out on. A move that might be the dumbest thing she’s ever done once she realizes how far her enemies will go to wipe her out. Too bad for them Zé is willing to do whatever it takes to keep her alive . . . and honey badgers are just so damn hard to kill!

Donna 5 Stars

This is my favorite in the Honey Badger Chronicles! I wasn’t sure how I felt about Max previously, but I love her and her snarky humor. She is bad ass in protecting her sisters, and badger to the bone. I like that her personality and dare I say it…humanity came through. That makes Ze’s attraction more than superficial. Ze’ oh my. I love how it was a “he” that didn’t know he was a shifter. That made for such a fun discovery arc that only added to the mayhem surrounding them. With everything going on, their personal relationship built at just the right speed, culminating in a very sexy romance. I couldn’t get enough of the group dynamics in this story. The camaraderie and ongoing banter within the different groups made me laugh like a hyena.

The writing was smooth and pulled me into their world with ease. This is one of those books where I slowed down reading toward the end. I just wanted it to last longer.

IN A BADGER WAY (The Honey Badger Chronicles, Book 2) by Shelly Laurenston

Publication Date: March 26, 2019

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

96C75B18-6DAA-4023-9595-1549239F912DPetite, kind, brilliant, and young, Stevie is nothing like the usual women bodyguard Shen Li is interested in. Even more surprising, the youngest of the lethal, ball-busting, and beautiful MacKilligan sisters is terrified of bears. But she’s not terrified of pandas. She loves pandas.

Which means that whether Shen wants her to or not, she simply won’t stop cuddling him. He isn’t some stuffed Giant Panda, ya know! He is a Giant Panda shifter. He deserves respect and personal space. Something that little hybrid is completely ignoring.

But Stevie has a way of finding trouble. Like going undercover to take down a scientist experimenting on other shifters. For what, Shen doesn’t want to know, but they’d better find out. And fast. Stevie might be the least violent of the honey badger sisters, but she’s the most dangerous to Shen’s peace of mind. Because she has absolutely no idea how much trouble they’re in . . . or just how damn adorable she is.

What a fantastic ride! Those MacKilligan sisters, plus all the other shifters we love, are giving Shen a ride for his life. How can you not love the calm, loveable Panda? That is…until he’s riled. I admit – I didn’t see him as a romantic lead…heck…I didn’t see Stevie in that role either. Boy was I wrong. They are both kinda goofy, Shen was always the side-kick, Stevie the strange stressed one, and they are now surrounded by mayhem (by that I mean family AND those that would do them harm). Yet each kicked ass and had me heated up with their smoldering romance.

Laurenston is a gifted storyteller. The intensity of the read remains even when nothing momentous is going on. There is no ho-hum, no rest or relaxation in her books….just pure entertainment page after page. I had a blast reading this and I’m thinking Stevie and Shen are my new favorite couple. For now.

HOT AND BADGERED (The Honey Badgers) by Shelly Laurenston

Publication Date: March 27, 2018

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

253669B5-291F-46DC-904D-0A91A2916523It’s not every day that a beautiful naked woman falls out of the sky and lands face-first on grizzly shifter Berg Dunn’s hotel balcony. Definitely they don’t usually hop up and demand his best gun. Berg gives the lady a grizzly-sized t-shirt and his cell phone, too, just on style points. And then she’s gone, taking his XXXL heart with her. By the time he figures out she’s a honey badger shifter, it’s too late.

Honey badgers are survivors. Brutal, vicious, ill-tempered survivors. Or maybe Charlie Taylor-MacKilligan is just pissed that her useless father is trying to get them all killed again, and won’t even tell her how. Protecting her little sisters has always been her job, and she’s not about to let some pesky giant grizzly protection specialist with a network of every shifter in Manhattan get in her way. Wait. He’s trying to help? Why would he want to do that? He’s cute enough that she just might let him tag along—that is, if he can keep up . . .

~*~*~*~

Donna 5 Stars

I enjoyed the story and the crazy sisters. At first I wasn’t sure how I liked them overshadowing the established hard-assed characters I’ve grown to love…but it was fun. Though fewer in number, the MacKilligan girls reminded me a bit of the Jean-Louis Parker family with less histrionics. Not to say they don’t have their share, it’s just tempered with a few tender and understanding bears. This promises to be a fun spin-off series full of sexy mayhem.
