Hot and Badgered by Shelly Laurenston
Hot and Badgered - Shelly Laurenston

Laurenston is one of my favorite authors. Whenever I am in need of a book that is guaranteed to slap a smile on my face I usually grab something written by her. Is this book a literary masterpiece? No, but it’s damn funny, full of interesting characters, and there is just enough paranormal to keep me interested.


This is a spin-off to the author’s Pride series. If you haven’t read those, please start there. 


Where Laurenston shines is how she writes her characters. They are ALL flawed. They have panic disorders, mommy/daddy issues, crazy families, etc., and they all are shifters. There animal side is very much a part of who they are. These aren’t characters that can turn into animals. If they are a bear shifter, they are also bearlike in human form: curious, love honey, don’t play well with other breeds. The honey badgers are scrappy, tend to want to take things that aren’t theirs, and they also love honey. The focus couple in this are a grizzly bear shifter and a honey badger/wolf hybrid. They are good together. The bear is very patient and is exactly what the hybrid needs considering her crazy family. Her two sisters are a big part of this book because her whole life has been focused on keeping them safe, mostly from their asshat of a father.


A lot of this story is set up for future stories. Normally have a hard time getting through a book like this, but not this one. Laurenston’s characters are so cool I enjoyed being introduced to each one of them, and there are quite a few. 


While led this is a romance book, there wasn’t a lot of focus on the couple. I was okay with that, but I do feel like I would have liked to see them interact more. More times where he was a hero for her, he did, but I wanted more of him crushing bad guys with his bear strength.


Really recommend this book, actually all books written by this author.

I love these characters. While this is a spin-off to Laurenston’s Pride series books, there are a lot of new characters being introduced, lots of weasels, badgers and bears... on my! I can’t help but wish that there was more focus on the main guy in the story. I think he is awesome, but feel like I barely know him. Now the MacKilligan sisters are awesome, love those freaks, and I love Britta too! Can’t wait to read some of the new characters stories when they come out. This is seriously making me want to reread the original series. You get hockey, roller derby, and more with a heaping dose of crazy shifters who have major self control issues.

I was getting so upset because I didn’t think Netgalley was going to approve my request for this, I absolutely did not want to wait for the publish date of March 27, too long. Checked last night and it was there. Woo Hoo! And perfect timing, I really need a distraction right now!


Not very far along in the book, but man I forgot how funny Laurenston was. Already giggling and love the flawed characters so much! Anyone hasn’t read this author’s work and likes shifter romance, or humorous romance needs to pick this up. Actually start at the beginning of the Pride series. Her Magnus Pack is also in the same world, but in my opinion the Pride series are better and I used the Magnus Pack as kind of space fillers between her releasing her Call of Crows books and her Pride books.


So far we got a tough shifter female searching for her sister while hired assassins are coming after her.

VBT, EXCERPT, GUEST POST & #GIVEAWAY - Shifter School (Shifter School, #1) by Gwendolyn Druyor
Shifter School: A Wyrdos Universe Novel - Gwendolyn Druyor
She’s gonna get them all killed.
So they locked her away.
Laylea has been hiding her entire life. She’s never been to school. She’s never had a friend her own age. She’s never known anyone else like her.
All that is about to change. 
In a world hidden from wyrdos and humans alike, shifters are still recovering from a vicious plot to destroy them all. They have two laws they live by now:
1) Hide 
2) Protect the children at all costs.
Laylea has just broken rule number one. But she’s only fourteen. So they’re sending her to school. Where she’s going to learn . . .
Anyplace can be a prison.
The Lincoln Park Shifter School is not your grandma’s uber-secret, underground academy.
