In BBB, Dee Ann Smith, an ex marine frenemy and Dez (the heroine from The Mane Event) join together in a task force to track down the people behind the shifters disappearing and/or being created to fight in the nastiest version of a dogfight you'd ever come upon. But they soon find out they may not want to know- especially when they discover one of the main money sources is none other than one of their very own.

Meanwhile Ric Van Holtz is determined to make the woman he's loved all his life his mate- and it will take all his prodigious charm- and sneakiness- to get her to to his bed. With a little help from his friends- and one teacup poodle- he might just do it.

Well- despite my misgivings over the heroine of this story- I did end up enjoying Big Bad Beast… but that’s probably because a lot of the rest of the packs, prides & clans that populate this series were in it and most definitely because of the charming Ulrich Van Holtz. What brought it down for me was indeed Dee, although I did warm up to her more than I thought would. Still, I found her to be a complaining bitch most of the time (even though Ric said just the opposite about her, weirdly enough), with her worst flaw being the fact she was boring and predictable.

If it wasnt for Bo, Blayne and Lock this book would come in much lower, but, because of them- and Ric!- I would still recommend it to anyone reading the series!

Julie Still waiting for my copy from Amazon...can't wait to read it, totally love this series...happy reading :)

Saly LOVED Bo and Blayne!!

Catherine I thought it was funny that Ric loved that she didn't dump her problems at his feet, while I thought she was a big complainer.

Zeek Yes exactly! I actually snorted out loud- who's laurenston trying to kid, she did nothing BUT complain!
