Book Description

         Publication Date:         March 25, 2014
“Hot shape-shifters and even hotter passion.” —New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter 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.  .  .BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZONI have been anticipating this book for a while, and it did not disappoint. As in true Shelly Laurenston form she delivers  the laughs, sarcasm and witty comments. Olivia “Livy” Kowalski has a family that is a tad bit crazy. They just don’t get that Livy wants to be a photographer and an artist instead of going into the family business. Here lately every time Vic Barinov  comes back in town he finds Livy in his house hiding in his cabinets naked eating all his honey. I thought this part was funny especially when the next door neighbor has set her sights on Vic. She has made him a lemon honey coffee cake. She takes the cake in his house so she can cut him a slice. When she opens the cabinet, she is attacked by Livey. When they ask her what happened, she tells them that she attacked her.”Who attacked you?””Her!”Now really confused, Vic walked to the cabinets over to his stainless steel refrigerator and opened one of the wood doors. Opened it and stared. .

(This part is really funny.)

A naked Livy Kowalski, comfortably curled up inside his cabinet, held out an open jar and softly asked, “African honey?”

Vic wanted to be angry. She broken into his home, eaten his honey, and attacked his neighbor. And yet….

Closing the cabinet door, Vic faced a raging Brittany.

“Brittany,” he began, “I am so sorry. This is all my fault.”

“Your Fault?”

“Well, I don’t allow her out of the cabinet without my permission.” Vic forced himself to keep his focus on a now-horrified Brittany because Shen and what he was sure was his reaction, but Shen was smart enough to turn away from them all.

“Your permission?” Brittany growled. “You keep a woman in your food cabinets?”

“It would be cruel to make her stay under the sink. She’s not that small.”

When I read this part in the book I just busted out laughing, then I had to read it to my niece and nephew. They asked me why I was laughing? This book has so many funny parts, especially with her honey badger family. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone. If you want a good laugh, pick this book up. If I could give this book a 10 star rating I would, but the highest that I can go is 5 stars. So my rating for this book is 5/5 stars.

When this book comes out on March 25,2014 run out, or log on to your favorite book store at buy it right away. You will not be disappointed.

THE BEAST IN HIM BY SHELLY LAURENSTON

the beast in himbuyamzon-button-plainBook Description

         Publication Date:         April 1, 2008
In The Mane Event, Shelly Laurenston introduced a whole new breed of heroes—sexy, shape-shifting hunks who redefine the term Alpha male. Now, in THE BEAST IN HIM, one gorgeous lone wolf is about to meet his match…Some things are so worth waiting for. Like the moment when Jessica Ward “accidentally” bumps into Bobby Ray Smith and shows him just how far she’s come since high school. Back then, Jess’s gangly limbs and bruised heart turned to jelly any time Smitty’s “all the better to ravish you with” body came near her. So, some things haven’t changed. Except now Jess is a success on her own terms. And she can enjoy a romp—or twenty—with a big, bad wolf and walk away. Easy.

The sexy, polished CEO who hires Smitty’s security firm might be a million miles from the lovable geek he knew, but her kiss, her touch, is every bit as hot as he imagined. Jess was never the kind to ask for help, and she doesn’t want it now, not even with someone targeting her Pack. But Smitty’s not going to turn tail and run. Not before proving that their sheet-scorching animal lust is only the start of something even wilder…

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I loved The Beast In Him, it was well written with well-developed characters and story line.  Anything Shelly Laurenston writes is a keeper. Smitty or Bobby Ray Smith and Jesse Ann have a past together. They have known each other while growing up. They were friends, and Smitty always came to her rescue when she was picked on and beat up. Now they meet again when Smitty’s company is doing the security for Jesse’s party which she is throwing for her company, in which she is CEO of a security system company.  He wants to be friends again and she does not want have anything to do with him.  Jesse has been in love with Smitty, but when he left town and did not even kiss her goodbye hurt her worse than anything could. Now he has to try to convince her that he wants her, and loves her. I loved all the chaos that Jesse Ann lives in, because she has no privacy or solitude to herself. There is always someone underfoot and it makes or some pretty humorous situations. There are parts where they are being attacked and there is some funny dialogue going on. Be warned  when you read this you will laugh quite a bit, so keep any liquids away from any electronic devices in case you spill your drink while laughing. I give The Beast In Him 5/5 stars.
