Hot and Badgered

Hot and Badgered

It’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...

Hot and Badgered Reviews

  • Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession

    This was only a sneak peak....the first chapter from Netgalley, but that first chapter has me wanting more! It was so good, and I'm hooked. I loved Bite Me from Shelly Laurenston's Pride series. I fell in love with her awesome Honey badger shifters. So finding out she was writing more honey badger goodness got me so excited. I can't wait to get my hands on this book!

  • Mindy Lou's Book Review

    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.

    As always I enjoy the ridiculous antics that Laurenston puts her characters through. The family dynamites and snarky humor add to the fun and enjoyment of reading. You can’t take these books seriously and that’s the main reason I love reading them. Their light, easy, fun to enjoy, out of the box, and creative!

    Those that have read the

    series will love the return of many previous characters. I adored the new cast as well as seeing the old. Copper Jean-Louis Parker our prodigy musician piano player ends up spending a lot more time on the pages, but our main characters; Berg our lovable grizzly bear and Charlie our honey badger keep the pages going with their families and courtship.

    is the first book in author Shelly Larenston's newest series entitled Honey Badger Chronicles. We are introduced to the MacKilligan sisters and from the start there is no doubt that we are in for a fun ride when it comes to this trio.

    This book deals with the story of Charlie MacKilligan, the eldest sister. She is the one who always steps in and takes care of things, particularly due to their sorry excuse for a father. Charlie is a honey badger and wolf hybrid shifter who can’t actually shift. With this being said, she is as fierce as they come. When she meets Berg Dunn, a grizzly shifter who also happens to be a triplet, it's an encounter that both walk away from thinking they will never see each other again. They of course do and what ensues is hilarity, crazy antics, dicey situations, and a sweet love story.

    Overall,

    was an entertaining read. Definitely recommended if you enjoy quick-witted shifter books.

    I’ve been a fan of Shelly Laurenston’s work for years now. But when I found out that she decided to end her popular Pride Series I was crushed. After nine books of fun, over the top characters, hilarious laugh out loud moments – I felt bereft and if I’m honest I was in denial. So, when I found out she was releasing a new series, I was all over it. Color me surprised and absolutely in love, when I realized that her new book Hot and Badgered was part of my beloved Pride world.

    I’ve been a fan of Shelly Laurenston’s work for years now. But when I found out that she decided to end her popular Pride Series I was crushed. After nine books of fun, over the top characters, hilarious laugh out loud moments – I felt bereft and if I’m honest I was in denial. So, when I found out she was releasing a new series, I was all over it. Color me surprised and absolutely in love, when I realized that her new book Hot and Badgered was part of my beloved Pride world.

    Reading this book made me HAPPY!!!!

    I have to admit that after a four year break, being reintroduced to my favorite cast had my head spinning, but only in a good way. This book was exactly what I needed. The author’s signature wit, the story’s diverse and unique cast and a plot that reminded me why I fell in love with her books in the first place – made this book a reading experience like no other.

    Shelly Laurenston has the unique talent of writing shifters that embody everything a shifter should be. Her characters are close to their animals, and have distinct animal characteristics. I have never read shifters with such authentic animal behavior before. Not only do they feel like real shifters, they act that way too. On top of that, the author’s heroines are tough, bad ass, kick ass and hilarious to boot. They go nose to nose with anyone that threatens their family and friends. Feisty, sassy and often times as fearless as any alpha male. And I love them all.

    There is really only one author that writes these kind of characters and that’s Shelly Laurenston.

    I’m not going into detail about the storyline. If you ever read one of the Pride books, you know what you can look forward to. This book is an accumulation of beloved characters, as well as an introduction to three women that hopefully will feature prominently in her next books. Hot and Badgered is also not for the fainthearted. The story starts with a BANG, and it pretty much continues that way. I felt like I was on an exhilarating roller coaster ride I didn’t’ want to end.

    Be prepared to be wowed, and swept away by an engrossing novel that will only make you want MORE.

    Welcome back Shelly Laurenston – I missed you!!!!

I also did one of those silent laughs that ends in a snort trying to be quiet because it was 4:00 in the morning and hubby was asleep beside me. Yeah, yeah, I should have been asleep but hubby snored for a couple of seconds, woke me up, and of course, I had to read myself back to sleep (good excuse).

    . This author's characters are extremely loyal to their family, protective of those they love…and have no hesitation to murder you in your sleep if you do them wrong. Turns out Honey Badgers are that to the

    There’s something about these stories that suck you in. Most of the characters are goofy with a side of psychotic that just makes them so endearing. When we meet Charlie and her sisters Max and Stevie they’re kids and even from their tender young age, we come to realise that they are a wee bit more psychotic than goofy. But geez, it’s no bloody wonder. Their dad is a douchewaffle of EPIC proportions. He’s so bad I wanted to jump into the pages to hold the idiot down for Max to do her thing with knives…and I would have been grinning right beside her.

    I think

    is brilliant. I’m not sure another author could pull off her skills of maximum confusion. See, when you start her books they tend to jump around a lot. You’re looking at one character and seeing their world one minute and the next someone completely different. Now, this different character may seem completely unrelated to the current story, but you just

    they’ll be back.

    Where the brilliance comes in, is that, this confusion is a little like the characters and the storyline. We become honey badgers who bake one minute and pull a knife out of a leg holster and throw it, the next. Picture it like you’re in a control room with six monitors going. You slide your eyes over each screen hoping to keep abreast of all that’s going on. It’s quick and if you blink, you miss it and I didn’t want to miss a thing. The little jumps have a purpose and when it all comes together, you're glad you had the opportunity to build the puzzle yourself. I find that Shelly's stories are fast-paced, keep my head spinning and my heart thumping.

    The love story is a bit of a slow burn. Charlie, as the oldest sister, feels a lot of responsibility in keeping her sisters alive and well. She doesn’t have time for romance and doesn’t want to drag a good man into the family curse…named, Freddy MacKilligan AKA, Dad. Funnily enough, the one man/shifter who

    to get dragged in, completely understands her and her family dynamics. His family is just as crazy.

    Berg Dunn is a triplet and his life changed forever when a naked woman fell into his world. Berg is a bear shifter who works in security with his brother and sister. They work together and live together so he understands all about family loyalty. They get mistaken for each other (even the sister) A LOT, have each other's back and would die to protect one another. Just like the MacKillagan sisters.

    I loved Berg. He comes across as kind of dopey in a sleepy bear coming out of hibernation way. But, there’s this other side to him too. This side of Berg is kind of scary and intense. One minute he's calm, next minute the cranky bear comes out and if you're in his way, he could pop you like a pimple.

    You never know what’s around the corner for Charlie, Max and Stevie (boys names because the douchewaffle wanted boys and got girls). I will tell you one thing that I loved about each of them. Charlie bakes to relieve stress, Max smiles as she kills, and Stevie forgets people she’s just met because she doesn’t want to waste brain space on insignificant people…her brain is too important. There's plenty more I could mention but I limited myself to one each. They’re quirky, tough and kick butt. I loved them.

    was a fun read with plenty of action, suspense and adventure. I would call it a slow burn as Charlie’s crazy life gives them plenty of time to get to know each other before we get to the fun stuff (wink, wink). And, boy was it FUN. Berg starts slow and intense but when his bear kicks in, it's hard and fast and oh so FUN! It’s also not a short story but I never found a time that it dragged or made me want to hurry things up.

    I really enjoyed

    and I know this is the start of a new favourite series.

    Funny and weird. This book reminded me of the "Call of Crows" series by this author. It has the same hilarious and frenetic storyline. There isn't an ounce of down-time, just crazy hijinx constantly. The jokes never stop either. Along with the killing and bloodthirstiness.

    I like Max. Oh, and Max is a girl. So is Stevie, and our main character, Charlie. They are sisters who are a little crazy and very killy. And, they have every reason to be. People are always trying to kill them. It's self-defense.

    Okay, there are many ways to defend yourself.

    Their father is a dead-beat douchebag who is always screwing them over in his schemes. He has sold them into indentured servitude, stolen all of their money, and sent other villains after them to collect on his debts. This time, their dad stole 100 million dollars from their uncle, and he is trying to kidnap them for hostages until the dad pays it back. That doesn't go so well - for the uncle. These girls aren't exactly kidnappable. They leave dead potential kidnapper bodies wherever they go. Being a "cleaner" for them would be a full time job.

    Dude. With them, it's cool. With you, it's just creepy.

    There is also a romance going on, and there will be smut, but if you are looking for a lot of smut, you will be disappointed. It takes about 75% of the book for any smutaliciousness. And, it was fine, but I actually liked the craziness of the story so much that I didn't care about the smut at all. It was just so fun!

    It was a lot like this meme:

    You will be saying, "What the fuck?" half the time, but you will laugh.

    (Seriously, wtf is up with this kid's nipples? They look like two dogs' noses. And... is the guy who commented on them a furry? Like he has room to talk? So many questions...)

    I'm gonna admit something. I thought this was a porny honey badger book when I got it.

    And I was dying to read it....because...

    The hot times don't even happen until 75%..and it's just one time. *Insert sad face here.*

    But all was not a total loss. This book is about the three MacKilligan sisters. They all are kinda crazy. I like that in my characters so I settled in to see what they would get up too.

    The sisters are all half sister shifters. They all got the honey badger part from their worthless father..

    (who is totally this guy in my head.)

    Then each sister has their own special talents. Charlie who is a mix of wolf/honey badger, she just doesn't shift into her animals. She really doesn't need it anyways. Max who

    might be psychotic. Then we have the baby of the family who spends time in mental institutes when she needs and break from being a genius 20ft tiger/honey badger.

    Just your regular neighborhood girls...

    Some parts of the story did seem to drag and their were a ton of characters that just didn't seem needed to me. However, I still had pure fun with this family and will probably break one of my own (not followed) rules and read the next one in the series. Because you never can have enough honey badger in your life. For reals.
