Book Review: In a Badger Way by Shelly Laurenston

In a Badger Way
Author: Shelly Laurenston
Series: The Honey Badger Chronicles (Book 2)
Publication: Kensington Books (April 1, 2019)

Description: Petite, kind, brilliant, and young, Stevie is nothing like the usual women bodyguard Shen Li is interested in. Even more surprising, the youngest of the lethal, ball-busting, and beautiful MacKilligan sisters is terrified of bears. But she’s not terrified of pandas. She loves pandas.

Which means that whether Shen wants her to or not, she simply won’t stop cuddling him. He isn’t some stuffed Giant Panda, ya know! He is a Giant Panda shifter. He deserves respect and personal space. Something that little hybrid is completely ignoring.

But Stevie has a way of finding trouble. Like going undercover to take down a scientist experimenting on other shifters. For what, Shen doesn’t want to know, but they’d better find out. And fast. Stevie might be the least violent of the honey badger sisters, but she’s the most dangerous to Shen’s peace of mind. Because she has absolutely no idea how much trouble they’re in . . . or just how damn adorable she is.

My Thoughts: This second in the Honey Badgers series features the romance of the youngest of three sisters. Stevie was a prodigy in both music and science and her older sisters are determined to protect her - mostly from her father who once sold her to Peruvian drug lords.

Stevie has panic attacks, anxiety, and really hates her hybrid nature. A combination of honey badger and tiger makes for a scary being. She is also terrified of bears! Well, except for cute panda shifter Shen Li who is a bodyguard for Stevie's friend Kyle who is one of a talented jackal family.

Shen is a laid back sort of guy who spends a lot of time eating bamboo and being puzzled by Stevie. After all, she has decided that they are going to be girlfriend/boyfriend. And he takes some convincing.

Events center around a family funeral and a scientist who is experimenting on hybrids like Stevie. The story is filled with madcap humor and over-the-top situations. It was a lot of fun to read.

Favorite Quote:
"Why were you in the men's room?" she asked.

"Because I won't be confined by gender constraints?"

"Do you even know what that means?"

"Not really."
I bought this one. You can buy your copy here.
