    4.5 Honey Badger Don t Give A Shit Stars Some Spoilers I plan to rain down vengeance on the man who did this to my father and anyone protecting or helping him And you trifling band of miscreant felons are going to help me You know how emotionally vested the wolves get about dominance Why don t you just go beat up some puppies, too Vic heard what sounded suspiciously like a giggle Okay I get it, she said I ll send them an I m sorry basket of Milk Bones to make it up to them You are so mean I know It s a genetic flaw Bite Me is the 9th book in the Pride series and totally kicks ass I was really worried after the last two books OMG this book redeemed the last two boring books I love the plot, love the MC, love the other characters, and I freakin love the Honey badgers The whole time I was reading this book I was picturing that funny honey Badger video here is the link if you wanna watch said funny honey badger video What this book is aboutLivy Kowalski is honey badger, but she turned away from the honey badger way of life You know Honey badger just takes what it wants and honey badger just don t give a shit Livy is the outcast of her family because she became a photographer Vic Barinov is a grizzly bear tiger hybrid and a mercenary for hire Livy and Vic like each other, but so far have only been friends until Livy turns to Vic for comfort when she finds out something very upsetting Livy finds her father in a rich woman s living room, stuffed She knows that she will stop at nothing to take down those who hunted, murdered, and stuffed her father Vic knows he will be there for her, by her side helping her in any way he can Sparks fly, lines get crossed and the honey badgers are out for blood I m okay, she whispered, her legs wrapping around his waist, her arms clinging to his neck I really am I thought I lost you, he admitted against her neck You know my kind is too mean to go out that easy We make a man work for it Vic Vic pressed his hands to either side of Livy s face What are you doing Thinking about how beautiful you look in the morning I m not making you breakfast Come on, Vic whined I m starving Vic is quirky like all hybrids He has a crazy tail that has a mind of it s own His bear side and his tiger side are at war with each other Most of the time he is bear laid back, and logical, but when he loses control and his tiger comes out he is rough, wild, and ready to pounce Vic is really sweet, and thoughtful He seems to read and understand Livy like no one else Vic really is prefect for her His bear side helps calm Livy and keeps her from getting to wild and his tiger side is rough enough to keep her interest But you re going up against bears, Livy He pointed across the tent they were in I mean, look at that guy over there The eight foot polar realized that Vic was talking about him Hey What are you pointing me out for Like I m some kind of freak That just hurts my feelings, man Oh, suck it up, Vic growled Your feline is showing, Livy warned Because you re not being rational and there s an eight foot, four hundred pound whiny baby over there begging me to claw the holy shit out of him I am Russian, Vic said in a thick accent Vodka I know I hate you, Livy admitted, because you sound really hot when you do that accent Vic leaned in and murmured in that damn accent, I can do it just for you Livy Stop looking so proud of yourself, she snapped at him through her panting, and get up here and fuck me I freaking love Livy OMG do I love her I have a total girl crush Livy is crazy, fun, sassy and will not think twice about going after anyone Lion, bear, snake Livy don t care She kicks major ass Livy is rather mild when it comes to being a honey badger Livy s family thinks she is soft because instead of following in the family steps of stealing, hurting others, and starting shit so she can and sitting back and watch other people s pain she would rather focus on her art photography Livy is wild enough that Vic can let his cat off the leash and get rough She also is accepting of his crazy tail and other quirks You make me want to burrow, Livy told him, her arms moving down to his waist as she snuggled into his chest Usually I want to burrow away from people, she murmured You re the first I ve ever burrowed toward Fuck, Livy said as she buried her face in her hands What What s wrong She looked at him Actually, it was of a scowl She scowled at him I m in love with you, Livy snapped And it s your fucking fault Uh sorry Oh, shut up Well if it makes you feel better, I m in love with you, too Vic Mhmmm I m starving Oh, thank God I m so hungry Why didn t you say anything It seemed tacky to come, roll off you, and go get something to eat I hate tacky I actually appreciate that But right now I m hungry I really love Vic and Livy together they had a very sweet relationship I found myself invested in this couple I enjoyed the hell outta all the honey badger craziness in this book The plot kept my attention There was some Eggie in this book Yay Love me some Eggie Tons of humor in this book, some hot sex scene, and a very cute romance Great read I will definitely be reading books by Shelly Laurenston Below I leave a few of my favorite moments from this book Hello, my hybrid brother Vic crowed Christ, Novikov, Jake demanded How much vodka did you give him I don t know A bottle Or two He then picked Vic up in a fireman carry, and Livy rushed up the stairs to unlock the door Novikov carried him to their room, dropping Vic onto the bed Can you make it back to the wild dog house Livy asked Of course, Bo snapped I m not weak like him I m strong Cossack strong Then Novikov walked into a wall, stumbled back, and passed out on the floor by the bed We will make the ones who did this to our brother pay and pay and pay until there is nothing left He finally released her from the hug, but he still kept one arm around her as he faced the rest of the family Now the world bleeds Or, Livy emphatically cut in, we can just go after the ones who did this Rather than taking it out on the entire world That seems excessive If you re sure You get to work Vic put his hands behind his head And make it good, baby Typical lazy feline and bear, she muttered as she placed her knees on either side of his hips Leaving it to the honey badger to do all the work That s because felines and bears are smarter than everybody.

    A smutty dare from my beloved GR friend, Edge of Bubble So lovely, so deadly and so enjoying while torturing me with smut books D Well, Bubbles, I finished it so I guess I m safe at last P Bite Me is the ninth book in Shelly Laurenston s Pride series This book can be read as an independent read, though I missed some vital information about the characters, but it didn t spoil my reading a lot So.A playdate with a honey badger shifter Livy and hybrid tiger bear shifter Vic The story involves action, lot s of shapeshifters, adventures, mystery, a bit of smut the story wasn t over flooded with it, but it made my eyes roll in some scenes lot s of pointless violence, crazy females, males who are quite sane, vengeance and Why be modest when you already know you are amazing , a phrase which sarcastically summarizes the main theme of this book The story concentrates upon Livy, her life and her family That leads to another weird part of this story I ve read a couple books about shapeshifters and Bite Me was my first about Honey Badgers At first I just laughed at the thought of it D Honey Badgers are known for their dangerous fight skills and their ability to protect the ones that they love That s a great set and it triggered my attention for sure Of course I liked action scenes, family protection theme, humor and Russian Mafia the names, POV s characters were interestingly written, I could hear these characters speaking with Russian accent These are the factors which really helped me to continue with the book and help the story a lot A funny treat from Bite Me Enjoy Pick her up Pick her up Sighing, Shen reached out and lifted Melly onto his shoulder She seemed to barely weigh anything, and it was terribly easy But then Jake said, If she starts squirming, drop her She s about to piss on you And if she grunts, Jocelyn added, throw her She s about to shit or projectile vomit Horrified, Shen practically ran to the room they d set up for Melly. Oh yeah She s outlived eight husbands, too Livy glanced at Vic Some of them even died naturally What I didn t like, was smut of course and lots of pointless violence which could have been avoided I was terrified by almost all the women in Bite Me Almost all of them are cruel, violent, smutty ego maniacs Violence to show who s better, violence to express slight anger inconvenience, violence without a reason and it s presented like it s normal view spoiler Be ready, he told his brothers before he reached down and grabbed Livy by the back of the neck He lifted her up and off Blayne, and Livy s uncles immediately grabbed her legs and held them away from her body while she snapped and hissed at them all hide spoiler

    ARC provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Another book for my favorites self from Shelly Laurenston I m seriously starting to believe that I would even love this woman s shopping list I don t like all her books equally but I love them all to pieces I m not much of an ARCs fanatic like some people I won t be naming looks pointedly at most of her friend list but I was seriously squealing in glee over getting this a month early In this book we have Olivia, Livy, Kowalski, a honey badger and a seriously kickass photographerShe looks non threatening doesn t she Think again Honey badgers are notorious for their vicious string and felony ways Still, Livy isn t a regural HB She is an artist who got over the stealing your way though life phase when she was a teenager and decided that her photography was her future and the family bussiness which consisted mostly of stealing and coning That doesn t stop her from going all HB on her enemies asses when she finds her dad brutally murdered.I loved Livy She was an outcast in her family and pretty proud of being one True to Laurenston s style, she was a very strong minded female lead and cranky as hell Maybe not all of her females are cranky but they are all definitely mule headed I actually love every heroine in this author s books They know how to fight their own battles, how to be mean and vicious when they to be and how to get over themselves when they have to Livy is no exception She makes her own way through life but isn t stupid enough to go half cocked into bad situations without asking anyone s help I enjoy my books way when heroines can keep a balance.Then we have Victor, Vic, Barinov, a tiger grizzly hybrid with a dexterous tail that has a mind of its ownVic is a tiger grizzly hybrid which makes him seriously strong and kind of bipolar without him even trying He is weird since his grizzly side is mellow and logical if anyone doesn t startle him or sent him in panic mode and his tiger side is all hissy and cranky Luckily his tiger side doesn t come out to play a lot and that s how he wants it.You know I didn t get exactly what wit was that Vic did for a living It mostly seemed like mercenary jobs here and there after serving in the military and CIA for some years Vic wasn t in favorite male leads in the series It s not that there was anything bad about him, it s just that I found him less interesting than most Of course there was this tail of his that view spoiler showed up even in human form when he lost control and hide spoiler

    Bite Me by Shelly Laurenston is the 9th book in her Pride series I have enjoyed the previous books in the series but this one completely failed to hold my attention It was a struggle for me to finish I just wasn t interested or entertained I think the main issue that I had with Bite Me is that it suffers from multiple personalities The story jumps around characters frequently throughout the entire book The story is told from the point of view of over 25 characters, I kid you not I started counting partway through.This is supposed to be Livy and Vic s book but it felt like a story for the entire cast of characters There was so much dialog and jumping around that it didn t feel like much progression was made and when something interesting did happen it was glossed over and sped along to a different point of view Additionally many of the characters annoyed me and much of what happened or was said bored me I can t say that I liked the book but I didn t hate it either I ended up giving it 2 stars because there were a couple nice moments I enjoyed the part that takes place at Vic s house and the part when he and Livy are in Honeyville Sadly, that s about it I liked Vic and Livy together and would have liked to have had page time with them This just wasn t a book that I could enjoy but other readers may like it.To see of my reviews go to Paranormal Kiss ARC Advanced Review Copy received from Kensington Books via NetGalley.

    What happens when you put a mean honey badger and a hybrid feline grizzly shifter together In Shelly Laurenston s latest instalment to the Pride series, Livy Kowalski and Victor Barinov are paired together in what has to be the most entertaining story yet As a mean honey badger who doesn t need anyone to lean on, Livy is used to being on her own However, when her father dies, Livy doesn t want the emotions to affect her She treads on as honey badgers do and this is where Vic comes in The soft hearted but sexy hybrid shifter brings to Livy what others men don t It s the perfect pairing and with Laurenston s over the top, trademark humor, BITE ME becomes a story that will have you clutching your sides and laughing until the very end Readers can expect the same outrageous situations and reactions from both new characters and familiar ones What I love about this series is the euphoric feeling one gets whenever you read a Laurenston book Each instalment exudes feel good pheromones until you are high on Laurenton s humor and stories I ve come to look forward to each new book by this author because of the guaranteed fun I will have reading it.Thanks to Laurenton s excellent writing and humor, this story is reminiscent of a reality show, displaying characters at their most entertaining moments and is just as addicting BITE ME is a perfect example of why Laurenston s romances are so worthwhile.Reviewed for Fresh Fiction

    This review is posted on Way Too Hot Books.ME WHILE READING THIS BOOK I m a honey badger I m fearless Why did it take me so long to pick this book up from my shelf I ll never understand Maybe because I wasn t this much blown away by the previous installment, but this one was way, way better.Honey badgers, the race of con shifters, are one fierce and bad ass force to be reckoned in the shifter world of the Pride series And probably the meanest Added to my favorite shifter group Pair them up with grizzly tiger hybrids they are pretty much unstoppable Livy Kowalski, a honey badger and professional photographer, Vic Barinov, the sexy hybrid detective, were fun, cute and pretty awkward, but totally in endearing way unlike the previous book couple The focus of the story was on their slow building, but steamy romance and the action packed, supenseful honey badgers revenge quest against the murders of Lily s father As always what you can expect of Laurenston s Pride series is a lot of humor and snark, plus many of our dear Pride characters make cameo apperance.4 super fun stars Definitely one of the best book in the series Highly recommended to every paranormal romance urban fantasy fan who wants a fun and steamy pnr romance uf series set in the modern world

    How can this book be the end I love the Pride Series by Shelly Laurenston Especially the books about bear shifters I loved, loved Crush and anytime Bo is mentioned my ears perked up.Shelly did a fabulous job of bringing everything together, characters, plot lines, and big get togethers It felt like a big family good bye party, revisiting old favorites, couples and packs Reading this book and knowing that there might not be another one was heartbreaking Her shifters are the riot, they make me laugh out loud and her dialogs are some of the funniest I ve ever read Until she decides to continue this series I ll revisit my bears and hope for to come I miss this series so much I just can t connect with her latest series Call of Crows I tried multiple times, but it s just not the same I m mourning.
