Livy Kowalski has no time for idiots. When you shapeshift into a honey badger, getting through life's irritants is a finely honed skill. Until she gets stuck housing her nutso cousin and dealing with her dad's untimely and unexplained demise. That's where Vic Barinov comes in - or his house does. Vic can't step outside without coming back to find Livy devouring his honey stash and getting the TV remote sticky. It gets his animal instincts all riled up. But he'll have to woo her at high speed: all hell is breaking loose, and Livy is leading the charge...
there is a good storyline and action in this book and it flows beautifully without those annoying pauses.however,the standout point for me is the humor, not only from the heroine,but her entire dysfunctional family. i honestly couldn't stop laughing or smiling throughout. vengeful honey badgers, ex-con and mafia type family members, some of whom are on the run and in safe houses,add in a hunky capable hero and what's not to love?
if you like paranormal romance with a good story,a lot of humor and wit this one's for you.i would highly recommended and will say that this could be read as a stand alone novel. however, this series is brilliant and i would urge people to read it!

Poor Livy. Being a honey badger shifter is really the pits sometimes. Let’s take her father’s funeral.
“So how did it go?
“Fistfight on the casket. Poisonous snakes in the backyard. My father’s ex-girlfriend head-butted by my mother… The usual really.”
Wow. Growing up in a family known for being enemies to … well … everyone, isn’t actually all that easy. Especially when you have no interest in learning the finer skills of pickpocketing at age three or how to best break in to a safe, steal the swag and get away clean by the time you are a preteen. Huh. Livy isn’t interested in the family business of breaking every local, state, federal and international robbery law on the books – she just wants to be a photographer. And she is a really good one at that. But family business rears its ugly head, no matter how carefully Livy tries to stay away. And her father’s death will lead to a return to the family business, will she or nil she. Thank goodness she has good friends to back her up. And, believe it or not, her family as well. Of course, when her old friend Vic, a bear-tiger hybrid, shows up along with his friend and sometimes business partner Shen, the giant panda, things get even stickier.
Livy: “Your feline is showing.”
Vic: “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 s*** out of him.”
Polar Bear Hockey Player (and aforementioned whiney baby): “You are Rude!”
Livy has no interest in a ‘relationship’ with anyone – especially when said hybrid makes her insides feel funny. But sometimes what we want and what we need are very different. And having a mammoth sized hybrid on her side turns out to be rather a good thing after all.
I read the first two of Shelly Laurenston’s “Pride” series quite some time ago and remember liking them, and finding them rather funny. “Bite Me” is sooo much more! I laughed so hard all through the book I had tears running down my face. The story is great, but the characters make the book. From Tennessee hillbillies (and proud of it) to savants in everything from art to music to science, Shelly takes what could be cliché characters and make them so much more. There is tremendous humor here, but also depth – the love of family and friends, the sacrifices friends are willing to make, and a lot about love and duty, greed and egotism – and the best way to break into an unbreakable vault, of course.
Yes, the first ones were OK but Book Nine? Priceless! It is now on my “to be read immediately when feeling sad” shelf. And I am going to go back and read the rest as well. The first two were more of the typical ‘paranormal romance’ with some humor thrown in – lots of sex and not as much story. This one? LOTS of story, lots of laughs, and a tiny bit of very well-done sex – lagniappe rather than main course!
Highly recommended. Have fun! Oh, and please note. Just because Shelly’s wonderful cover artists couldn’t figure out the best way to make Vic look sexy in his hybrid form, (he really is quite terrifying in his shifted form! All. That. FUR!!) and put that gorgeous tiger on the cover instead, doesn’t mean that Shelly doesn’t respect her friends, the hybrid shifters!
***Received a copy of the ebook for an honest review, but I also bought the audiobook
The cover is beautiful with the white tiger though I wish it would have looked more like a hybrid :)
This is the 9th book in the Pride series. I have read most of the books in this series though before I started reviewing the books I read.
I really love this series! It always has family drama, fighting, love, conflict, and the good guys win (well kind of good….lol) which is the way I like it. This is Livy and Victor’s story. Livy is a strong but scary woman….err honey badger. Victor is a hybrid, and he is interesting. I am not one for giving plot details away which makes my reviews hard to write especially when I love the book. Whether reading the book or listening to the audiobook, you cannot go wrong when it is written by Shelly Laurenston. She weaves fantastic stories that are complex, and her humor always has me laughing to the point of tears. I love her style and characters. I also love that even though each story is unique and features a new couple; she always brings those characters you already love back so you don’t have to miss them :)
I am a huge fan of all of her shifter books. Time is my only limiting factor :)
I highly recommend this story and series to any shifter lover because you will fall in love with her characters and humor.
