"Hot and Badgered" is an awesome read and a great addition to the family. I was cracking up throughout the whole book. Charlie and her sisters; Max and Stevie are too funny for words but they work well as a team. You can tell when a group have been together long when they can communicate with just a look or motion. Their father is a major pain in the ass.
The sex scenes were steamy and the connection between Charlie and Berg is real and just adorable. I love how Berg kind of had to work to get Charlies attention. Shelly throwing in characters from the previous books was just the icing on the cake. I loved seeing Dee-Ann, Ulrich, Marcella, Crush, Livy and the others. It was truly gratifying to see what their lives are like now and how they are fairing.
Dutch is kind of weird but I hope we get a book soon about him and his people. Sometimes I did want to smack him though. The sentences were well structured and the whole book dragged me in. I could not put it down and was done in a couple hours. I truly loved reading Hot and Badgered and I hope we get more from Charlie, Livy and their crazy family. The honey Badgers have fast become my favorite species of animals when it comes to Shelly’s books. I highly recommend this great read.
At the end of "Hot and Badgered" you will get introduced to Shelly’s Call of the Crow series which are called in order: "The Unleashing", "The Undoing" and "The Unyielding".
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 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 . . .
