Review: Bite Me by Shelly Laurenston

Summary: 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

My Thoughts: 
In my experience any book that Laurenston writes is going to be fabulous, but this one is truly one of her best. In this series there is the expectation that the book will have some extremely funny moments, some new love, and some ass kicking. What I loved about this book was that it seemed to take all of those expectations and surpass them without even trying.

You will laugh out loud when you read this book, so it is best not to read it at work (like I tried to do) because you will only embarrass yourself. Livy is HILARIOUS! I don't think I have laughed this hard since Blayne's book. Just some of her thoughts were enough to make me chuckle. 

I was happy to see more of a progression in the big story line of the series. I won't go into too much detail because I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but I feel like we finally got some answers as to what was happening with the dead shifters. Thank goodness because the last book did very little to move the story along. Now my only question is will there be another one because I still have questions, and still kind of confused as to the involvement of some of the characters. 

On a side note, the Honey badgers are officially my favorite!

If you have not read any of the books in this series, I do not recommend starting with this one. You will be confused! Start with the first book so that you can understand what bigger story line I am talking about!

To summarize, I loved it. This book will go on that pretty shelf that I keep all my favorites on. :)
