琥珀の瞳にもう一度 (Pride #2)
“This is serious. I won’t get between you and your family.” “You’re not, darlin’. This is what one friend
does for another. And we’re friends. Just like me and Mace.” She gave him a wicked little smile. “You fuck Mace too?” “Only when he’s feeling needy.”
The Beast in Him is the 2nd book in the Pride series and it is just as funny as the first book. Shelly Laurenston has a Knack for writing hilarious stories with realistic, fun loving characters. After meeting Smitty i ...more
My first thought when reading Shelly Laurenston' s book...
ARE ALL HER CHARACTER CRAZY?????
Seems there's no normal character in her books. Both men or women, shifter or not, children or adult, they're crazy and insane in their own way... :))
BTW, in this book, meet new shifter in the town!
The African Wild Dog!!
For further information, look at Wikipedia :P. ...more
I had such an amazing time reading this story. I'm getting to love this series more and more with every book. This book is a full length, so in it you get to know the couple much more than in the first 2 stories from book 1. But we still have plenty of that amazing sense of humor this author has. I swear I love her, she makes me laugh so hard that many times I have to stop reading to be able to stop laughing like an ass.
In this installment we get to read about Bobby Ray (Smitty) Smith. ...more
Ok, I'll admit,These books are little too over the top to be pick of the litter for me, as it were, but what the heck- they do make me laugh from time to ...more
All sorts of awesomeness!!!
Bobby Ray Smith is a wolf, and not just any wolf, he is now the Alpha of the New York Smiths. Bobby Ray, Smitty for his friends, has managed to suppress his wild and feral side, something not easy since it seems to run in the gene pool. There is one person who always brings the edge to the front, one person which can rattle him and always had. Little Jessie Ann Ward. The one woman who made Smitty run, not b ...more
The dialogue and narrative were so chaotic at times that I kept checking to see if perhaps my book was defective. Often the dialogue was used to explain what was happening and it jumped around so much that I had to go back and reread certain p ...more
When I pick up a Pride novel, I know I’ll enjoy every minute I spend with Laurenston’s furry characters. THE BEAST IN HIM tells the story of Bobbie Ray and “the one that got away”, Jessica Ward. While I wouldn’t consider their story my favorite of the series, it features some of my favorite characters—the wild dogs! The wild dogs are some of the smallest of the shifters, but what they ...more
When Bobby Ray Smith aka "Smitty" left home for the Navy, he left someone behind. A young wild dog shifter named Jessie Ann. Jessie Ann, how had the distinction of being Bobby Ray's sister, Sissy's, favorite punching bag. In fact most girls in town targeted Jessie Ann. Because female wolves did that, but mostly because she was a wild down in a town full of wolves.
Sixteen years later, Bobby Ray is working a job with his partner, Mace, only to discover that Jessie Ann is not only t ...more
The Good, The Bad and Everything in Between
What I love about this book, which I think is the best in the series (although not my absolute fave) is that there's good humor, solid family relationships that are not easy and predicated on d ...more
Jessica has waited twelve years to get back at Bobby Ray Smith for rejecting her kiss before he left town to join the Navy...and boy was it worth it!! As one of Bobby Ray's friends said "...she shot your ass down like a jet over enemy territory." I snorted my way through this book. Between the shifter jokes (there are dogs, wolves, and lions...oh my) and the redneck ...more
Seriously, the entire time I listened to this book and read it (hello Whispersync), I kept hearing Ozzy belting out:
Those that the beast is looking for
Listen in awe and you'll hear him
Bark at the moon
Hey yeah, bark at the moon
Setting / Time / Genre: Current. Mostly New York
Series: Second in the series.
Sexy times: Hot, hotty, hotterson.
Plan on reading more by the author: Uh huh. I'm obsessed!
Synopsis: So this is the story of Smitty, hot wolf man, and Jess, hot wild ...more
This was just so chaotic and campy...and I'm just not in the mood for it right now.
I also don't like how Smitty seems to expect Jess to get over his sister physically abusing her as a teenager...I get that it's all some weird pack mentality, but I've read some weird pack books and...not cool.
It got such great reviews from my friends though, so maybe I will try and revisit it later...
suuuuuper funny! and adorable!
I love Jess Ward and her wild dog pack with my whole entire heart.
Added one star... because I LOVE it now
Angenehm ist es auch, dass Smitty und Jessie Ann sich bereits von f ...more
- I liked the hero since book one but here he was funny, and I liked him more ^^, and I loved the heroine she was funny and quirky and geeky and I so wanna be in her Pack XD
- I liked how the heroine pulled herself from being the weird awkward girl to being an alpha of her own pack and a multimillionaire company owner XD
- I liked how since they were kids she was so special to him, I know he was a big reason in here that she was bullied but it was obvious his affections we ...more
I really liked The Mane Event, but the snarky animal banter in this tale was hilarious. I usually give best line ...more
Bobby Ray was first introduced in the Mane Event as Mace's partner. He's now in NYC running a security company that was hired by Jessie Ann. The two share a history from childhood. S ...more
Smitty! Ohh Smitty! I'll start this review by staking my claim on Smitty, he is still my favorite wolf in this series! So, everyone, gets your paws off of him.
We first meet Smitty in The Mane Event. In the first story he was just that hot military type, laid back, gorgeous guy with the sexy southern drawl, who just moved and talked smooth and slow. He is also Mace's best buddy and together they've opened up a shifter security firm in New York. Smitty, of the Smith Pack from Tennessee, brought s
Get ready, ‘cause yep, this will be another rave review for another book in this series and I will warn you… Every single book in this series deserves one! They are THAT good!
This time around we get to see Smitty, Alpha of the New York pack, find his Happily Ever After with Jessie Ann, the girl he left behind 16 years ago when he joined the Navy. She was just this scrawny Wild-Dog Shifter back then who he kept having ...more
Laurenston continues to deliver humor and heat both, with her sexy shifter series
Beast in Him is a great follow-on to Laurenston's The Mane Event (Pride, Book 1), it's fun combination of humor and spicy romance with an abundance of sexy Alpha shifters both male and female.
We met 'Smitty' Bobby Ray Smith, werewolf and former Navy SEAL, who was both buddy and business partner to Lionshifter Mace the lead in the last book. Smitty is sexy confident and cocky about his skills with women, he hasn't h ...more
"Your exact words were: 'I challenge you, Bobby Ray Smith, to get me back into your life.'"
"I never said that."
"That's what I heard." ...more
The story really pulled me in. Geeky, smart girl makes good when she grows up; her former crush from high school shows up and is smitten; and then she leads him on a merry chase. The wild dog pack and their antics are hilarious. And I loved the Smith pack from the earlier books, of which Smitty the lead male character is p ...more
Years later, Booby Ray has a security company and is working an event held by the multi-millionaire Jessica Ward. Only ...more
I loved Smitty! I want a Smitty, can I have a Smitty, please!! Any time he prefaced a comment with "Now Jessie Ann" you knew a 'Smittyism' or logic-according-to-Smitty was coming and it would more times then not have you laughing or blus ...more

Smitty glanced away from the computer screen he’d been staring at for the last three hours, looked at his sister, and shook his head. “No.”
“What do ya mean no?”
“You asked. Sorry if you didn’t like the answer. I always thought you were funny lookin’. Asked momma, ‘What is that thing laying in your bed?’ And she said, ‘I found it hiding under a car, you be nice to it now.”
“Because it’s fun?”
“I love it when you cry.”
Smitty sighed. “Forget I asked.”
