“Laurenston has her own distinct way of doing things.”
~ Under the Covers

Shelly Laurenston returns with a new installment in the Honey Badgers Chronicles. Whenever one of these books come out, I’m always very eager to read them because I know that they will be a breath of fresh air from the normal books that I read. Although still technically a Paranormal Romance, it’s clear that Laurenston has her own distinct way of doing things.

What was interesting about this book was that she used a lot of different POVs to tell her story and while you may think this is a typical and perhaps normal thing for authors to do, what’s unique about this book is that she tells the story through the eyes of a lot of secondary characters or perhaps characters that you wouldn’t normally expect to hear from.

This was something kind of unique to me because it offers the book something entirely different than what’s out there and also showcases the ruthless aspect of these honey badgers. If you think they are over the top now, wait ‘til you see them through the eyes of a “normal” person. Shelly really made her character look like freaks.

There’s a ton of action and mature content in this book, which makes me wonder if Laurenston reads many other books in her genre because I honestly couldn’t see any similarities. She really makes this book wholly her own and it’s more special because of it.

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

This sounds great! I want to read more about all the sisters, especially Stevie.

I love Shelly’s books precisely because they are so different from everything else out there in the genre. I’ve seen other authors try to imitate her style, but that never really works. Can’t wait to read this!

This was my first Laurenston book and yes, she has a wonderful unique style with the way she shifts the perspectives and describes the antics of her shifters. I love that she tosses in several unique shifters and they really do share traits with their animal side.

This was really fun! Laurenston really did a great job with helping you get to know all aspects about a character with all the different POV’s. I especially love Blayne. Sometimes she irritates the crap out of me and other times she makes me laugh hysterically. I love the way Tori and Livy treat her. Stevie and Shen were a great couple. I loved how Stevie just sort of took over that relationship and her sisters just backed her up. So funny!
