He's big, burly, and way smarter than your average shapeshifting bear. He's also about to get trapped by own his game. . .

Lou Crushek is a reasonable, mellow, easygoing kind of guy. But once someone starts killing the scumbags he works so hard to bust, that really gets under his fur. Especially when that someone is a curvy she-tiger with a skill set that's turning Crush's

There hasn't been a book about Brian and Rivka, so you haven't missed anything.

While it's been a while I do believe that 'Bite Me' released in 2014. Since then Shelly has released the' Call of Crow' books in our usual 'Pride' slot in March. Her next related release will be 27th of March, 2018 with 'Hot and Badgered', which will start up the spin-off 'The Honey Badgers'.(less)

Ok I'm gonna keep this one short. This book just didn't really do it for me. I don't think it was a bad read, but it was a slower read and I didn't really connect with the main characters. Both Crush and Cella felt flat and one dimensional. I didn't really feel their relationship, what little one they had, and there was a serious lack of romance in this book. They seemed to dislike and or annoy each other almost the whole book. They didn't really hang around each other

This is a fun, fast and funny book. This whole series is like that, though; full of fun and great banter.

Lou Crushek is an undercover cop when he gets transferred from NYPD to the shifter division. Crush’s cover has been blown by his former foster mother Peg, who conveniently runs BCP. Crush hates change. It makes him cranky.

Cella is the loud-mouthed KZS operative who also plays professional hockey for the Carnivores. They call her “Bare Knuckles Malone”

Shelly Laurenston brings readers another fun-filled, outrageously funny and sexy book to add to the Pride series. BEAR MEETS GIRL is the seventh book in this series and it follows Marcella “Cella” Malone, a spirited feline shifter who is a pro hockey player for the Carnivores and is a protective agent the KZS. This means she will fight you bare-knuckled in and out of the ice ring. Hilarious antics ensue when Cella wakes up after a night of too many drinks in Lou “Crus

I love paranormal stories and this author writes an amazing dragon shifter series but for me her more contemporary shifter series is a bit hit and miss I'm afraid. Filled with larger than life characters who truly take no prisoners these laugh out loud stories are just something I have to be in the right frame of mind for if honest.
This book starts with the authors typical shock tactics as it's instantly apparent that Cella is going to be a nightmare to deal with. She's loud, she's brash and sh

A typical Shelly Laurenston with lots of humour, tough, unique shifters and sexy scenes. I loved coming back and seeing old characters, like Bo, Blayne, Dee-Ann and the like. The plot was pretty well developed, but, the ending was, at best abrupt. So my only complaints were:

1)I felt there wasn't enough H/h time and getting to know each other. Other plots and the mystery plus the hockey took too much pages, so they fell too fast for me to REALLY believe.
2)The cover. I don't like it, even

The one thing you’re guaranteed to get with any Shelly Laurenston book is a ton of humor centered around many different character interactions. I look forward to revisiting all the series characters with any new book as well as getting to know how our new leads will fit into this crazy world. BEAR MEETS GIRL gives us Cella Malone, a psycho, aggressive, playful at times, feline whose great loves in life are her daughter, her position as enforcer on the hoc
Lou Crushek is an easy going man, even if he looks like a drug dealer or could kill you on the spot in the blink of an eye. The one thing he values the most is his job as an undercover cop, but that is a thing of the past as he is transferred to another department and has him sparring with the one woman he hoped never to see again, Marcella Malone. Waking up next to her naked body was freakishly out of character for Crush, but he was willing to go with the flow until she opened her mouth and sta ...more

Look, it had it's moments, really. It did.

eye roll

It just was not as good as the others in the series. Now, I know I have been listening to these books back to back, which really usually kills a series, but even then, I think this book would have been an ok. It was mildly entertaining. It was distracting. I got a lot of chores done. It kept me busy on a couple of longish drives. But over all, compared to the others. Meh.

Eye roll to the series for losing it's steam. Lordie, let the next one be better.

March 2-3, 2014: See last year's review. Fanboy Crush is awesomesauce.

March 25, 2013 I LOVE this book. I will never get tired of Crush geeking out. Never ever.

Okay, so my best friend (a former Borders merchandising/inventory supervisor) is now a receiver at Barnes & Noble. And you know what Barnes & Noble does different from Borders? Fewer strict on sale dates. And that is why I got this book in my hot little paws eight days before I thought it was coming out.
